A homeowners group has vowed to stop the city from opening new athletic fields at McPherson Magnet School next month. "We don't have any intention of letting it open," said Mark Burkhardt, co-founder of the McPherson Advisory Committee. The $2.5-million athletic center includes five baseball diamonds with dugouts, fences and batting cages; four regulation-size soccer fields; volleyball courts; basketball courts; and a concession stand.
