DECATUR -- With all the design work, grant applications and millage voting complete, work finally began on the new basketball/safe room at Decatur Middle School Feb. 21. The outside was the first to fall as a big track hoe/excavator took down the brick walls that stood in place since 1959-60 when the building went into service as Decatur Elementary School.
