In other matters, supervisors:
Agreed to send deputy Gary Kelly to the Law Enforcement Training Academy in Pearl;
Agreed to furnish the labor to pave parking lots belonging to the Quitman and Enterprise school districts. The districts will furnish the materials;
Agreed to send several court house employees to a computer seminar in Hattiesburg on Thursday to learn how to work a new bookkeeping system which will be required by the state next year;
