THE WEEK IN REVIEW

A look back at the week's top stories:

TED WILLIAMS: Two of the deceased slugger's children filed a document with the court that they hope will resolve the ongoing dispute. The hand-written note bears Williams' signature and expresses his wish to have his remains preserved. The children, John-Henry and Claudia Williams, say that proves their father wanted to be cryonically frozen after death. Their sister, Bobby-Jo Williams Ferrell, said Williams' will, which calls for him to be cremated, should be followed.

THERMOMETERS: With the hot, steamy days of summer at hand and athletic practices just around the corner, the School Board voted to spend $1,000 to buy wet bulb thermometers to help keep students safe. The board members also said they want the new devices to go to coaches with instructions and guidelines so that they would know when the thermometers register a reading that could indicate a danger to students.

AUDITOR: The County Commission chose the county's auditor for the past 15 years, Williams, McCranie & Sutton, to continue on the job. The vote was controversial because other competitors scored higher on a ranking system.

BOAT OWNER STILL JAILED: Showing frustration with the lack of progress in removing the Bonner Lee from Kings Bay, County Judge Mark Yerman refused to free owner Paul Purdum from jail while he awaits a hearing for violating an order to tow the boat away. Purdum has been behind bars since July 12.
