A disagreement over where children from the Martha-Leeville community should attend school and who should provide transportation, led to heated words between Wilson County Board of Education Chair Teddy Cook and April Basham, a parent of some of the children involved.
Basham initially addressed her concerns to the board during the statement by citizens segment at the beginning of Monday’s meeting.
She asked that the board reconsider the zone change which divided the students in the Martha-Leeville community among three schools.
The community, which straddles Highway 109, was rezoned in April, sending some children to the new Elzie Patton Elementary, some to Rutland Elementary and some to Southside Elementary.

Early Sunday, about 2:30 a.m., Ashe said the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office received a call that a body was laying in Big Springs Road about 200 yards from its intersection with Highway 70 East, also recognized as the Carthage Highway.
