So Many Perfect Days For This Time of Year

This lil guy sat and watched my every move as I was working next to him
And I watched his every move too. Mid November, he's lucky to still be alive.

Takin Advantage of The Nice Day To Make Repairs

Always Like Those Late Day Holiday Jobs

Power company set a pole right through a sewer line. But Culy's, "the big boys with the big toys"
were passing through town from a job and saved us again, they dig the deep hole and we cleaned up.

Winding Down The Fall Chores

I Think I Shall Never See

Bryan Doing His Thing

Inspecting the water tower. He said he would try to get us scheduled for a fall paint job.
His company keeps wanting to do it in the spring and I say no because of Ran Del.
I can't go 3 weeks or more without a tower during the planting season.

Doc Hinchman's Chinese Elm Comes Down

We played a lot of cowboys and indians around that tree then rolled down the little hill (thats not there anymore) when we got shot.
And it wasn't nearly this tall 70 years ago.

The Great Pumpkin?

Hello, my name is Michael (Mick) Deckman and I live in Parker City, Indiana. I was born on the northeast corner of N.Fulton St. and E. Oak St. one block south of the ole Parker School Building. I spent my school days living 2 houses farther south at 227 N. Fulton St. I graduated from Parker High in 1958. As I was not a member of any of the great basketball teams of the time, some of you may not remember me. I earned my letters playing baseball. I have operated the town's water plant since 1966 and have seen many changes in the town, some good, some not so good. Although the downtown has lost several buildings and businesses, there are many new ones on the highway now. After several years of decline, Parker City is back. The Street Fair Homecoming has returned, with fireworks on opening night, and new homes are being built on the southeast edge of town. My roots are here, my life's work has been here and I'll probably die here. I have tried my best to make this town a good place for all to live and now through these pages, I'm bringing Parker City to you and the world.

As you can see, there are images of present day Parker City, some news, highlights and history.
It all began on the evening of May 10,1998.
