Norris named MISD interim superintendent
Monitor Staff Reports
MALAKOFF–The Malakoff ISD Board of Trustees named Sybil Norris the interim superintendent Monday night. Norris will fill the role from April 30 until a new superintendent takes over, most likely sometime in late May or early June.
The current superintendent, Dr. John Spies, will be leaving the district April 30 to take over as superintendent at Van Alstyne ISD. Spies said he is making the move for family reasons.
Trustees hope to name a new superintendent by May 9, which would be followed by a mandatory 21-day waiting period.
Norris is well acquainted with being the interim superintendent, having filled the role at least twice previously at MISD.

Low-cost vaccination clinic set April 9
Special to The Monitor
GUN BARREL CITY–Friends of the Animals will hold a low-cost vaccination and microchip clinic for all area residents from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 9.
The clinic will be held at the Friends’ clinic in the southeast corner of highways 198 and 334 in Gun Barrel City in the red brick office strip just behind and east of the Huddle House. No appointment is necessary.
Dogs must be on a leash and cats must be in carriers.
A rabies shot will cost $10, the parvo, distemper, etc. shot for dogs or the equivalent for cats will cost $15.
The feline leukemia vaccination will be available as well at a cost of $10.
There is a rabies epidemic in Texas – and anyone who has had a dog with parvo or distemper knows the suffering that animal goes through – and that it is very contagious to other dogs.
This vaccination clinic will be open to everyone, anywhere.
This clinic will also offer microchipping to cats or dogs. A tiny chip is inserted into the scruff of the pet, which can be read by a scanner available at shelters everywhere. Your lost pet comes home! Cost for this is $20, which includes the permanent national registration.
Also available for sale at any time is Frontline Plus, the monthly flea and tick prevention.
Frontline Plus costs $32 for a three-month supply for a cat and ranges from $34 to $37 (includes tax) for a three-month supply for dogs.
Flea season is here! Don’t be fooled by products that are cheap – the reason they are cheap is that they do not work! Don’t throw away your hard-earned money on products that don’t work!
Friends of the Animals Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic has been open since July, 2002, and has neutered more than 22,000 animals in that time, saving and preventing literally millions of little lives. Surgery is done by appointment only.
Surgery prices range from $25 for a male cat to $65 for a giant breed female dog.
If you would like to volunteer at the clinic on Tuesdays or have questions about the vaccination clinic, please call (903) 887-PETS.
Tax-deductible donations for this non-profit charity may be sent to P.O. Box 5455 in Gun Barrel City, 75147.
Please be sure to visit the clinic’s website at www.friendsoftheanimals.org.
