Story:

Celebration honors memory of those lost six years ago (September 13, 2007)

Those honoring the memory of lives lost Sept. 11, 2001 in New York City, Washington D.C, and a Pennsylvania field, and in subsequent battles in the ongoing war against terrorism, began arriving early at Limestone Landing, Tuesday evening.

By 6 p.m., when the bells of St. Patrick Church tolled six times families and soldiers were shoulder to shoulder with the floodwall murals and Ohio River as a backdrop.

Story:

The local AMVETS chapter has announced an ambitious plan to construct a veterans park on Kentucky 9 in Maysville.  (January 5, 2007)

Built in cooperation with the city of Maysville, the park will be located on one of the county's most historic sites, where Simon Kenton and his fellow pioneers first settled. Within the park, individual memorials to wars and veterans ranging from the Civil War to Iraq will be featured.

While the city has offered up the property for the park and will be in charge of the visitors center, the plan calls for no less than eight separate memorials to be included. The price tag on each memorial is expected to approach $75,000 for a total of about $600,000. Add in other expenses and the organization may need more than $750,000 before the memorial park is complete.
