Army Brig. Gen. Les Beavers (left) presents Pulaski Countian Clarence Vaught the medals he earned during World War II at a medal restoration ceremony earlier this month at Thomson-Hood Veteran's Center in Wilmore, Ky. The medal ceremony was to restore medals to World War II veterans who never received them after returning from the war because there was a shortage of metal because it was being used to make ammunition during the war. Vaught was awarded The Good Conduct Medal, Asiatic-Pacific Campaign Medal, World War II Victory Medal, Army of Occupation Medal and Japan Clasp, Honorable Service Lapel Button WWII, Marksman Badge & Rifle Bar and a Cold War Certificate.

Heated sidewalks provide sparks for workers
A heated sidewalk to melt snow and ice was “quite the thing” a half century ago in a small town like Somerset. This town’s first and only electrically warmed sidewalk was installed facing Fountain Square alongside First and Farmers National Bank when the bank’s downtown headquarters building was constructed in 1963-64.As snow fell, the warm sidewalk melted a walkway about 2 feet wide alongside the bank. It was the talk of the town; quite a gimmick.
