The final preparations were completed late last week for the Parker Field turf project in Piggott, and Tuesday afternoon the first of more than 200 rolls was laid.

By Wednesday morning the majority of the playing surface was covered, and work was progressing.

The field will be complete soon, and the contractor for the job, who is from Portageville, notes his son will be playing in the first game on the new field on Sept. 9.

Photos of the early stages of the project may be found in this week's print edition, and a full story on the effort will be published in the Aug. 17 edition.
