    Back in the late spring of 1967, Bennie McMurray saw the invitation from the Lancaster Post 31 American Legion baseball program as just a chance to play.

    “We went down to Eggleton Field and history was made,” said McMurray, now the head football coach at Lancaster High School.

    Ernest and Shawnee Garvin, who filed the suit Dec. 16, 2010,  live on Cole Creek Drive in the Brookchase neighborhood. Their home is located within 50 yards of the Blue Dot Redi-Mix LLC facility on Northfield Drive in the Perimeter 521 Commerce Park, according to the lawsuit.

    Just a few months ago, the city wrapped up its latest Streetscape phase, which has seen new sidewalks, curbing, lighting and greenery from the railroad tracks near L&C Railway to Emmons Street on South Main Street.
