Berea Veteran’s Day Ceremony

IMG_0555

Marine Corp League and MSHS JROTC

It was a beautiful afternoon, Sunday, November 9, as Berea’s annual Veteran’s Day ceremony took place in Memorial Park. The number in attendance has dwindled over the last couple of years with the loss of many of our World War II veterans, but present were representatives from several conflicts including: World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm and Afghanistan.

The ceremony was officiated by Jim Lucas. Jim moved here from Arlington, after his retirement from the military, and has become very active in the Berea community over the past few years. From The Friends of the NRA, a solid run for City Council, active participation in economic development initiatives, and veteran’s programs, Jim has shown great pride in his home by his easily visible participation in Berea organizations and events.

The ceremony was short, but very appropriate and directly to the point. The colors were presented by Madison Southern High School’s Air Force Junior ROTC Color Guard. After the Pledge of Allegiance, Councilman Chad Hembree sang The National Anthem, followed by a short address from Mayor Steven Connelly. The ceremony continued with the presentation of a wreath placed on the Memorial Park Monument, followed by a 21 gun salute from the Marine Corps League, and concluded with a somber performance of Taps by the Marine Corps League bugler.

This Veteran’s Day let us give thanks to those who have served and remember those we have lost.

McConnell Responds to President’s Net Neutrality Announcement

Mitch McConnell

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell issued the following statement today in response to President Obama’s announcement calling for additional Net Neutrality regulations:

“The growth of the Internet and the rapid adoption of mobile technology have been great American success stories, made possible by a light regulatory touch. This approach has freed innovators to develop and sell the products people want–and create jobs in the process–without waiting around for government permission. The President’s decision today to abandon this successful approach in favor of more heavy-handed regulation that will stifle innovation and concentrate more power in the hands of Washington bureaucrats is a terrible idea. The Commission would be wise
