Central Catholic High School's effort to expand its campus with two new practice fields is generating friction with the property owners who are being asked to move out.
Carmen Ramirez, 72, of 129 East Delaware Ave. and George Blevins, 44, of 132 Palmer St. say the school's effort to acquire homes in their neighborhood has driven down their property values.
The company in charge of land acquisition for the school sees the complaints as a negotiating tactic.
