Filler Material Added To New Sallee Field Turf
With all the field turf in place now (with permanent yard lines, hash marks, numbers and words all sewn or glued in with fiber of different colors) the filler material that will hold those fibers up (and cushion the playing surface) was being added Wednesday July 16th.
A huge pile of filler material was being mixed on the pavement in front of the concession stand before dispersion onto the turf.
A repetative process of dumping the filler material, then spreading, raking and fluffing the fibers was still in process Wednesday. When finished the filler material will be much less visible.

Green on Silver Dollar Corner Now
Landscape greenery at NE corner of 11th & Main is now in place. With quite a bit of finishing work still remaining (lamp posts, trees, asphalt, etc...) there is some resemblance now to the preliminary (2004) drawing below. (Previous Coverage)
