FEATURED PHOTO · Construction on the Klopfenstein Amphitheater at Lowe Park took a major leap forward last week with the arrival of the oak leaf shaped canopy. The leaves, which were built by Barnes Manufacturing in Marion, made the trek through Marion Monday, Oct. 14. It required two trips of two trucks. Here leaf is moved by crane from the truck to the amphitheater site. By Monday, Oct. 21, the base for the three leaves were in place and placement of the oak leaves was expected sometime after the Times' press deadline. Corey Munson
