Fifteen-year school board veteran Rod Kinney, who has been chairman of the Clinton Board of Education three times, has decided to retire from his position. The local banker has heard of the possibility of one and maybe two candidates seeking his seat.

Baker Hughes Inc., one of Clinton’s major employers, will be acquired by Halliburton in a stock-and-cash deal valued at $34.6 billion, it was announced Monday.

The deal will make Halliburton the largest oil-and-gas service company in the United States, surpassing Schlumberger.

Arapaho-Butler has begun mum sales this week in anticipation of festivities Friday surrounding the A-B Indians’ homecoming basketball game against the Sentinel Bulldogs. Mums and garters will range in price from $9 to $25. Those wanting to place an order may call the elementary office at 323-7264. Students may pick up their mums Friday.
