Students at Lincoln School and Indian Trail Junior High School in Addison will see two new faces this fall. Daniel Johnson will become the new principal for Lincoln School, joining Addison Elementary District 4 after serving as principal in Des Plaines School District 62. Before that, he spent 12 years in Riverside as assistant principal and band director. At Indian Trail, John Bunnell will serve as a dean. For the past eight years, Bunnell has served as a school social worker at an alternative high school in Palatine.

Ex-Argonne worker sentenced

A 43-year-old Plainfield man was sentenced to two years' drug-offender probation and ordered to spend 90 days in jail if he fails with his sobriety after he admitted stealing about $9,800 worth of metal equipment while working at Argonne National Laboratory near Darien. Jay W. Goatley was a longtime employee of the laboratory when arrested late last year on the felony theft charges. He pleaded guilty last month. DuPage Circuit Judge Robert Anderson sentenced Goatley on Monday.
