On the bright side, it give them an opportunity to get the grading and drainage system right.

It looks like they are beginning the rebuilding process.  They have removed the track and put down gravel where the new one will go.

I went by again today.  There wasn't really anything to take pictures of.  It looks like they are going to install some drainage on the field (maybe).  They have also laid the underground plumbing on the visitors' side.  That's about all there is to report.

Discussion of a tentative football schedule had board members asking when a home game could be played in the new high school stadium which is under construction. A report indicated the project is going smoothly and progress continued over spring break. If good weather prevails, the project should be complete by Oct. 1 and a possible Oct. 10 homecoming game could possibly be at the stadium.

I drove past the stadium yesterday.  There still isn't anything worthy of new photos; however, it looks as if they are ready to pour concrete on the visitors' side.  Maybe we'll see that happen soon.

Drove by today and US flag pole was setting the girders for the new scoreboard and screen where the endzone seats once were, and might I say they were very tall and massive.  ;D

Here are the pictures of the posts for the scoreboard.  There is also more work going on in getting the ground ready for the track and field as well as concrete preparation.

There are more pictures http://gallery.mac.com/cckmso/100701

sure wish they would hurry up and do something with all that dirt.  It is a dust bowl in that block of Merriman!

It's a catch 22 situation.  Work is progressing rapidly because the weather has cooperated (no rain), therefore, there's lots of dust.  When it rains, of course the dust is reduced, but so is the work.
Sorry that you have to put up with that dust.
Go Indians!!!

Saw electricians working on the stadium lights yesterday looks like they may be getting ready to stand them back up.

Do they have new lights?  Hopefully they will be newer/brighter.

Went by the stadium today and took some quick pictures.  They're not the best quality.  You will notice several white rolls in the pictures.  I'm thinking this may be the field turf.  I will try to get by there often this week to get pictures of it going down.  I also did not take pictures of the visitors restrooms, but they are looking rather nice.  Will try to get more later.

Not much to show today.  The turf is going down, although they only got just a little down.  I also took pics of the visitor restrooms.  I will try to get more tomorrow.
