LDN -- Top Stories

On Tuesday morning, new park benches were delivered and installed at Scully Park in Lincoln. Kevin Bateman with the Logan County Board was on hand to see the benches put into place. The benches were purchased from the Illinois Department of Corrections, are heavy metal weighing about 200 pounds each. Bateman had said that purchasing from IDOC had given the county a better price than other suppliers offered.

The benches are manufactured by IDOC inmates and marked as a product of "Shawnee Metal Furniture" as part of a prisoner rehab program implemented by the state.

Bateman also pointed out a new bike rack that had been installed recently. He said the rack was a donation from the Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital and was manufactured by Don Bode of Bode Welding in Lincoln.
