- River Road, the street where HHS alumni Brandon T. Pickering grew up, will henceforth be known as Private First Class Brandon T. Pickering Memorial Highway.
Pickering died last April after his unit was attacked in Iraq. Veterans like Brandon, who pay the ultimate sacrifice for country, are our true heroes and memorializing his sacrifice is the least the city, county, state and country should do.
- Via one of our readers, those who hold court in the Newport/Fort Thomas Starbucks may have to find shelter elsewhere temporarily: Thanks, Chuck!
The manager at Starbucks told me that they will undergo complete renovation soon. They will serve from a trailer in the parking lot while under construction. If they keep the carpenters pumped up maybe time will be cut in half.
