Eagles fall to Waco Connally 40-23

Fairfield’s 2016 gridiron fortunes continued its’ slide into unaccustomed waters last Friday night, as an ineffective passing game & repeated center snap problems in the 1st quarter alone, hobbled the offense, while the Eagle defense didn’t get its’ claws unfurled until they had yielded their 27th point early in the 2nd period! Two plays into the game, after Fairfield had received the opening kickoff, a rolling snap & a launch over the QB’s head set the offense back 19 yards & wrecked their effectiveness. After another great Rodriguez-Reyes punt of 45 yards, Connally set up shop at their own 42 yard line, taking only five plays & 1:54 on the scoreboard clock to get their 1st of four first half TD’s! Over the next four offensive series, the Eagles earned one 1st down on a bruising Akeem Jackson 15 yard jaunt, but had three incomplete pass attempts & another snap that sailed far over its’ intended target’s head!

Spray park met with community interest

Pictured is the splash pad met with the most community excitement. The city will find out in April 2017 if they were approved for the grant.

Residents of all ages attended the public meeting last week regarding a possible spray park project for Fairfield. City Administrator Jeff Looney says Texas Parks and Wildlife (TPWD) offer a matching grant for this project. “It's a 50/50 grant up to $500,000,” Looney explained. The city is planning fundraisers for the matching part of the grant.

With three variations, comments were made by attendees regarding the best splash pad for Fairfield. The one chosen is approximately 3,306 square feet with a spray area of 2,148 square feet and cost $300,000. The city will have to raise $150,000.

The pad features a variety of spray attachments. Looney said the city was hoping to build on the north end of the kiddie park. “That's probably the best because of the fence and existing water and sewer lines,” Looney explained.
