Spiffing up the ditch

       Derek Anderson of P.F. McCarthy, Inc., puts the finishing touches on a recently poured concrete wall on the 31st Street Camp Creek ditch just south of Fontanero Street. McCarthy, working on an $89,000 contract with the city, has been working since February replacing concrete side panels and bottoms north and south of Fontanero Street, plus repairing the footing for the bridge at Water Street. The work is expected to wrap up this month.
