Taft High School received new stadium lights early this week under the Lincoln County School District’s bond measure.

Lincoln County School District Support Services Director Rich Belloni said the $150,000 project – $125,000 for the bases and poles, and $25,000 for the crane and other services – will help wrap up what’s left of the $63 million bond measure voters approved in 2011: around $5 million.

“They’re all projects we were hoping to do but didn’t have to,” he said. “They could’ve waited if we didn’t have the money.”
