LEHMAN TWP. — Lake-Lehman’s Night of Mayhem continues to pay off.

District Superintendent James McGovern announced Monday that new band uniforms, a new sound system for the stadium, chorus risers and a resurfaced track are all results of the successful event.

Matt DePrimo of Barber Ford presented the district with a check for more than $2,000. Ford paid the district for test drives taken at the Night of Mayhem activity.

McGovern announced that the next Night of Mayhem would take place next October.

In another matter, the board appointed assistant coaches for the 2013-2014 year. Voting was not unanimous for wrestling coaches.

Board members David Paulauskas and Karen Masters voted no for Walter Sorber as volunteer varsity wrestling coach. Masters also voted no on Jack Davis as varsity wrestling coach.

Neither Paulauskas nor Masters would comment on the vote, saying it was a personnel issue. Board member Bo Kreller was absent from the vote.

Paulauskas made a plea at the end of the school board meeting on the matter of coaches.

He said that the board receives letters from parents from time to time about deficiencies in coaches. He said the majority of those letters come in unsigned. He said it was very hard to take action on an unsigned complaint.

Paulauskas assured residents that any communication to him, to Athletic Director Jeff Shook or to the superintendent would be kept confidential.

“If you’re going to submit anything, please sign it,” Paulauskas said.
