The West Carrollton City Schools Board of Education will be taking on a new look this year.
Two new board members tonight will be taking oaths to replace a pair of longtime officeholders, including the 2017 president. A new president and vice president are also scheduled to be elected when the board meets at 6 p.m., according to the agenda.
Joe Cox and Jonathon Lewallen will be filling the seats formerly occupied by Debbie Bobbitt and Roberta Phillips, last year’s president. Cox defeated Bobbitt in the November election. Lewallen ran unopposed as Phillips did not seek re-election to the five-member board that includes parts of Miami Twp. and Moraine.
The meeting is scheduled to occur in the community room at West Carrollton High School, 5833 Student St.

DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. — Incredible video captured firefighters rescuing a child from a burning building in DeKalb County, Georgia.
The helmet camera video, posted by DeKalb County Fire and Rescue, was taken at the Avondale Forest Apartments on Jan. 3.
The video shows a person on top of a ladder drop a child down to a firefighter as the flames roar around them.
The firefighter catches the child and quickly runs to safety.
"Third-generation DCFR firefighter Capt. Scott Stroup can be seen catching one of the children that was dropped from the third-floor balcony. Great job by all hands operating on this fire as several lifesaving grabs were made that night," the department posted on Facebook.
An estimated 50 people were left without a place to live after the massive fire at the Decatur apartment complex.
Capt. Eric Jackson, with DeKalb County Fire and Rescue, told WSB-TV that four adults and eight children were hurt in the fire.
He said their injuries were minor and mostly related to smoke inhalation.
Firefighters kicked in doors and ushered out residents when they arrived on the scene, Jackson said.
One of the victims told WSB-TV's Steve Gehlbach hearing the screams coming from the people trapped was the most frightening part of the fire for them.

TOKYO — Japan's national public broadcaster issued a false alert about a North Korean missile launch Tuesday, just three days after Hawaii's Emergency Management Agency sent a false missile alert.
According to CNN, NHK sent a message to users of its phone app that said, "NHK news alert. North Korea likely to have launched missile. The government J alert: Evacuate inside the building or underground."
Minutes after the alert went out, NHK issued a correction and apologized.
"The news alert sent earlier about NK missile was a mistake," the broadcaster said, according to CNN. "No government J alert was issued."

SANTA ANA, Calif. — Dramatic video footage from the security camera of a city bus in Santa Ana, California, shows a car going airborne before it crashed into the second story of a dental office Sunday morning, KTTV reported.
The video, obtained by KTTV from the Orange County Transportation Authority, shows a bus traveling through the I-5 underpass near 17th Street in Santa Ana.
The video shows a car going airborne, barely missing the bus, before hitting a building.
Two people were injured when the car, apparently traveling at a high rate of speed, hit a raised median and flew into the second floor of a dental office, police said.
