  • Keeping memories alive: learning a lot from those who served

    Every year we celebrate Veteran’s Day during the month of November. Although it may have different meanings to different people, at the urge of American citizens, November 11 became a legal Federal holiday in the United States on May 13, 1938.

    The holiday was first known as Armistice Day, the name change to Veteran’s Day not occurring until after the Korean War. Armistice Day was first recognized on November 11, 1918. This date was embedded in the public’s mind as the date that marked the end of the Great War, or World War I.

  • Pewee ready for cell tower fight

    The City of Pewee Valley is gearing up for a fight against a familiar opponent.

    At their monthly meeting Monday night, council members learned of a plan to construct a cellular tower behind the Salem Assembly of God, a church at 209 La Grange Road.  Although no formal application has been filed with planning and zoning for the construction of the cell tower, the intent to do so has been declared.
