          Projects and Lightning Detection!
          I highlighted most of our projects in my letter on page 4.
          We also finished installing the lightning detection systems.
          We now have five units and they are located at; Knights
          Park, Prairie View Elementary, Memorial Park, Veterans
          Park and the high school concession building. Most of
          the units are programed to turn on at 8:00am and off
          at  9:00pm.  The  ones  at  Memorial  Park  and  the  high
          school concession building turn off at 10:00pm due to
          having lights available  for  late  night  activities.   When
          lightning is detected the horn sounds for 15 seconds,
          only one time. After 30 minutes if no lightning is present
          the three “all clear” horns sound.
