SMITH COLUMN: There should not be panic for SHS field

July 22, 2014

This is not the time to panic if you are a Starkville High School football fan.
The situation concerning the construction of an all-turf field at Yellowjacket Stadium has hit a snag, but officials remain "optimistic" that work will continue immediately and the contractor can meet the August 22 deadline.
Starkville is scheduled to open the 2014 season at home against Noxubee County on that date.
At Tuesday's meeting of the Starkville School District Board of Trustees, School Superintendent Lewis Holloway announced they would "take no action at this time" concerning a change in the schedule of football stadium completion.
Starkville High School Athletic Director Stan Miller said the contractor, Clear River Construction out of Flowood, will be asked "to get back on the job" so the deadline of August 22 can be met.
Right now, one month from the deadline, it seems to be a long shot for that to happen.
