Obviously you weren't listening closely. I'm paraphrasing here, but when Mary brought up "what if there aren't enough people willing to volunteer," he replied with "then we can look at the budget and consider buying a shuttle to pick up people to take them to vote." Burning down a school where children attended classes and housed many of the special needs students at the time is minor?…

Believe me, Adams County voters are not stupid. However they deserve to be educated. Jeff Scott (Jonathan Shonekase) will not be voted in as long as everyone knows the truth. I'm not sure why Jeffery Scott would think everyone has that short of a memory. Does anyone know of a free shuttle to Mexico? Siberia maybe? Anyone else willing to make a "donation" to send a shuttle to either place?

New lighting will be installed at the Oakley Lindsay Center next month

5 months ago by Jim Dewey

Cost will be around $72,000

During the February monthly meeting of the Oakley Lindsay Center Board -
Executive Director Rob Ebbing reported that lighting upgrades in the
McClain/Kent expo hall are moving forward.

After conducting a lighting study it was determined that existing lighting
fixtures can be replaced one for one with LED light fixtures which can be
controlled individually or by groups wirelessly.

Partial funding for the project is coming from 2 grants which Ebbing
initially expected would pay for about half of the expected $100 thousand
cost.

But the low bid from Springfield Electric came in at $72,424.56.

The Civic Center's share of the cost, about $16 thousand, will come from the
bond budget.

In addition to saving about 60 percent on electricity in the Expo Hall -
Ebbing says the lighting will also save labor.

With the current lighting, anytime a customer wants lights to be brighter or
dimmer, someone has to use a cherry picker and physically unplug or re-plug
the lights.

With the new lighting, that can be done from a computer, I-Pad or smart
phone.
