By Nicole Burton

Frankfort, KY - Gov. Matt Bevin has directed that flags at all state office buildings be lowered to half-staff on Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2018, in honor of a Kentucky serviceman who was killed in action during the Korean War but whose remains were only recently identified.

Army Pvt. Robert J. Sipes, Jr., 19, died on Nov. 30, 1950, was accounted for on Oct. 23, 2018, and will be buried in his hometown of Irvington on Wednesday. (See: Gov. Bevin recognizes the sacrifice of a KY soldier)

Although flags statewide are presently at half-staff to honor former President George H.W. Bush, Wednesday's flag lowering will also honor Pvt. Sipes.

City Council Sums Up 2018: Pavilion, 40 Acre Landfill, and Warm Sentiments for Those Leaving Office

By Tiffany Kessler

Wrapping up the year, December's monthly meeting of the City Council was held in regular session Monday night. Presiding over his last meeting as sitting mayor, Curtis Hardwick prepared to leave office by reporting on two rather large projects he recently began.

"We have been working on a grant for a pavilion for the Farmer's Market - an almost $500,000 project," Hardwick announced. He believes if grant monies are approved by the Kentucky Agriculture Development Board and the USDA, the cost of a 15,500 sq. ft. metal pavilion could almost be completely covered.
