COMETS FOOTBALL FIELD IS GOING GREEN

 

The Greenville Comets football field is going green.  The condition of the Comets football field has been a concern recently, especially after a recent game where the mesh below the field came through the surface.  The middle of the field, between the 30 yard lines and between the hash marks was nearly devoid of grass.  In an attempt to improve the field, Unit 2 recently seeded rye grass on the bare parts of the field.  That seeding appears to be working.  The grass has come up and filled in many of the bare places on the field and this Saturday’s game will be played at Greenville.  Tickets go on sale at noon with game time at 1:00 p.m.  "Go Comets" signs are available free of charge at the WGEL radio studio and Kahuna’s restaurant, printed courtesy of Naco Printing.  The current weather forecast shows sunny skies and a high of 68 Saturday.

GREENVILLE PLAN COMMISSION RECOMENDS LARGER LOTS

 

After a very short public meeting Monday night, with no public input, the Greenville Plan Commission asked Windsor Development Group to revise its plans for a 40-lot subdivision so that all the lots would meet the city’s 8,000 square foot minimum size requirement. Windsor’s proposed subdivision is East of Idler Lane along the city’s proposed College Avenue extension.  According to the application, Windsor is owned by William K. Jenkins of Hillsboro. The commission passed along to the city council, rezoning recommendations from business to manufacturing for several lots near the railroad tracks south of Harris Avenue.
