Brown ground

A Courier story about the University of Findlay’s newly-brown campus was picked up Friday by the Associated Press, MSN and television stations, and the story went national. The university is being forced to replace about 75 percent of its grass after a private company accidentally applied weedkiller to the grass instead of a fertilizer. In this photo, dead grass can be seen in front of Old Main, where a television crew was taping a segment Friday. As many as 54 of the 72 acres on campus may have had grass killed, meaning the repairs will be expensive. All areas visible along Main Street will be re-sodded, the university said. Other areas may be replanted. The university is not releasing the name of the company that made the mistake, but is currently working with the company’s insurance provider to pay for the repairs.
