North Daviess to Get New Wooden Bleachers

          The North Daviess School Board voted last night to replace the high school gym bleachers.   The Washington Times Herald reports the new wood bleachers for the gym and balcony will cost over $448,000.  That includes a $13,000 discount as shop class students will remove the old wood to use for projects.  Terre Haute based Lee Company will build the new seating.  Kevin Siverston with the company says the bleachers should last about 50 years.  Work on the project is scheduled to start sometime after basketball season. The new seats will replace 17 year old plastic floor seating and 50 year old wood balcony bleachers.  The newspaper reports the school has been spending about 10 to 20,000 dollars a year in repairs to the current seats
