    Are we forgetting a couple of wars that happened in the 2003 to the present. I think people need to know what was happening during these wars and remember the fallen.

    This was a great weekend for the Board of Education to cut down the trees in the Memorial Park for all the men who graduated Fort Hill High School who died in World War II without any public input I wonder how the families of these men feel
