Ashville High band to get relief

The air conditioning unit that never seemed to work will soon give way to a new one-- at least the Ashville High School band hopes it will.

The band room has been without air conditioning since the end of the school year. When they left, band members were told a new ac unit would be in place during the summer. The band returned for summer band camp to no air conditioning -- just fans.

The St. Clair County School System says the proper air conditioning{}unit was not only unique, but needed a contractor to be installed.{} The 15 ton replacement is scheduled to be installed Monday.
