MULBERRY GROVE MEMORIAL DEDICATION

 

A large crowd gathered in front of the Mulberry Grove High school Sunday afternoon to pay tribute to three Mulberry graduates who gave the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

Taps played and a retired army two-star general spoke of that war, many years ago, that took the lives of over 50 thousand Americans including Specialist Mike J. Scott killed in action in 1968 in Vietnam, Staff Sargent Ronald E. Shipley killed in 1969 and Sargent James L. Scroggins killed in 1973. The three, all graduates of Mulberry Grove, were honored as a monument to their sacrifice was dedicated near the front door of the high school.  A committee of Veterans including Dan Steiner, Dan Willis, Jerry Short and Jim Blankenship worked to make that monument  a reality. You can view that tribute, now unveiled for all to see, in front of the High School in Mulberry Grove.

FOURTH STREET CONSTRUCTION UPDATE

 

How’s the Fourth Street renovation project coming along in Greenville? We talked to Greenville City Manager Dave Willey who said the construction is going as planned. The only unanticipated project hold up is on South Street rather than on Fourth Street. South had little base on it, so they needed to do more work once they started. Willey says they are shooting for early October for partial completion and total completion is anticipated for the end of October.
