Mini gym parking lot upgraded

By Lucy Halverson

Major improvements to the mini gym parking lot at Lyman High School were recently completed. The mini gym, located below the high school building to the west, which houses the vocational agricultural classes along with serving as the locker room for football and the wrestling and weight room, has had a gravel parking lot since the building was built in the early 1980’s. Proper water drainage has been a continual problem causing water and mud to stand in the lot and not drain away.

Recently local contractors have completed a parking lot upgrade that hopefully will alleviate the drainage problem and the excessive amount of mud left behind when it rains. Patrick Construction of Vivian poured a 20 foot by 100 foot concrete pad directly to the south of the mini gym allowing several vehicles to park on the pad and stay out of the mud. England Construction of Presho re-graded the parking lot to make the water run off to the west and not sit on the flat parking lot. Large 1 ½ inch rock bought through Gary Halverson Trucking of Kennebec was then laid down and packed. "We’re waiting for a hard rain to help pack that big rock in and then we’ll add smaller three quarter inch rock to the base rock," stated superintendent Bruce Carrier.

The mini gym parking lot is the latest parking lot on school property to be upgraded in the past few years.

According to Mr. Carrier the majority of the project was completed the last week of April. The estimated cost of the project is around $20,000, which will come out of the 2005-06 Capital Outlay funds. Capital improvement projects under $25,000 are not required to be let for bids.

Tractor safety school to be held in Presho

Posted by Nicole


A tractor safety school will be held Wednesday, May 31, 2006, from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM, at the Lyman High School Vo-Ag Building in Presho. All youth, age 12 and older, are welcome and encouraged to attend for the safety training provided.

Youth who would like to receive a Hazardous Occupation Training Certificate will need to stop in their Extension Office and register for the Hazardous Occupation Correspondence Course, preferably before the tractor safety school.

All those attending will receive farm safety training through classroom materials, videos, demonstrations, and hands-on tractor driving. Youth need to be 14 years of age in order to qualify for a Hazardous Occupation & Training Certificate.

Law requires the certificate if 14 or 15 year olds will be doing certain farm work for hire for anyone other than their parents.
