Darron Arlt is the new superintendent of Pawnee City's Schools

Morale, to a great extent, is simply an attitude. Those are the words of Darron Arlt, the new superintendent at Pawnee City Schools. He is currently middle school principal at Central City Schools. He will be making $104,000. He was hired on a 6-0 vote of the Pawnee
City School Board Monday night. The School Board talked briefly after the vote about why they hired him. Enthusiasm of the new hire seems to be one of his many strengths. Board member Brian Rottinghaus, who was also a candidate for the job, said he will give his full support to Arlt.

City workers have been loading scrap into a dumpster and are about on their third one. There will be several more loads of dumpsters before the crew is done.
