Walls set to go up S-C addition


Mark Morris, a member of the local carpenters union and the superintendent from GB&H Builders of Jefferson City, checks the stem wall of the 82-foot by 104-foot multipurpose room at Smith-Cotton High School on Monday afternoon. Workers had poured the wall Friday and were back to clean the concrete wall in preparation for the mason to come in and set the block and brick walls. The construction crew was hoping to get the floor poured in the upcoming weeks but said that was dependent on the weather conditions in the upcoming days.
