A Sealer Coat

Soft but Gone 48 Hours After Another .72 Was Dumped From Rain Gauge.


But Lots of Corn Debris to Clean up


Bees at the Park


New Downtown Benches Program


With Plaques


Opening Day Flooded Out

But still have to suit up for picture day.

May off to a wet start.

Ball diamond drain working great.
Just wasn't intended to handle 5.83 inches of rain in 8 days, average .73 every day. No games or parking today or Opening Day tomorrow.


The outlet is only a small pipe with round openings to control flow and keep corncob/field debris from entering town drains.
A larger pipe would also increase Main St flooding during rains such as we have been having.

Old Tree Removal Program Being Put in Place.

And this "marked" one is getting a head start on its own.


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.
