Adair Little League Complex Several needs were addressed at the Adair little


league ball fi elds as the complex was spruced up for spring play. Employees straightened leaning light poles, adjusted outfi eld lights and replaced (or rehung) damaged backstop netting.


Several on the work detail hope to return to


Bluejacket to complete the task of replacing light poles and lights at the park on a day when soggy ground does not prevent equipment from accessing the ball fi eld.


Huckleberry Canyon Park Years of neglect prompted cooperative employ-


ees to fi re up everything from heavy equipment to chain saws and work diligently to reclaim a remark- able place forgotten by time. T e park was carved out of overgrown vegetation to reveal an amphitheater, picnic area and walking trail. Project leader Les Newkirk, whose other hats include Jay City Mayor and Right-of-Way Supervisor for Northeast Rural Services, says additional work must be done to restore the park to its original beauty. Once complete, the Jay com- munity will once again be able to utilize the park for events and performances.


T e park’s sewage system was completely over-


hauled and a building set aside for meetings and equipment storage received wiring, insulation and sheetrock. Paint was applied to backstops, bleachers and fence rails. “Getting that work taken care of is great,” said


Brad Farrar, president of the Adair Little League. “More was done than what we ever thought possible. We’re thrilled.”


Panter Park T e community of Bluejacket’s primary gather-


ing place received some much-needed attention when employees joined forces to trim tree branches, remove several dead trees and burn brush. Remnants of bro- ken picnic tables were also hauled away.


“We’ve still got some work to do,” said Newkirk.


“It was more than just a one-day project. But at least now it’s something the community and city can fi nish up.”


Added Newkirk: “A lot was accomplished. I can’t


say enough about all the work that was done. T e park had completely grown up. It was overrun with vegeta- tion.”


He said workers had to cut their way into the


park, it was so cut off by overgrowth. “It was completely inaccessible. You can actually


drive a vehicle down there now,” he said. “From what it looked like to what it looks like now—it’s just amaz- ing.” 
