Airport Terminal Dedication and Tales of WWII

The Winston- Louisville Airport was abuzz with planes, politicians and dignitaries on Saturday for the dedication of the new terminal building at the facility. The W. Pruitt Lee Terminal was named after a Winston County resident who flew combat missions as a co-pilot in WWII.

Mr Lee was in attendance on Saturday morning for the ceremony and is shown here accepting a U.S. flag from Congressman Gregg Harper.

The local airport has undergone major renovation, construction and repair over the last two years. The terminal dedication and the appearance of an assortment of vintage WWII aircraft was a celebration of these improvements.

On Friday, September 26, local media had the opportunity to fly in one of these vintage planes along with Mr. Pruitt Lee. The 30 minute flight in a PBJ (the Navy's version of a B-25 bomber) brought back memories for the former pilot who took the opportunity to detail his flight  that resulted in a crash and his serious injury. The video below is roughly 5 minutes in length.

Packed House for Housing Project Public Hearing - Decision Affects Residents and the Gain or Loss of FEMA Grant Funds

The boardroom at the Louisville City Hall was packed on Tuesday
night (Sept 23) for a public hearing related to a proposed residential housing project that could yield approximately $2 million for the coffers of the City of Louisville.

The proposal would require the sale of the Academy Park property
in the southeast area of Louisville by the City. The property would then be used for the development of 35 single family homes in a managed subdivision and a smaller public park area.

The properties would be 2,3 and 4 bedroom - 2 bath brick homes with underground utilities, curb and guttering, inclusive grounds maintenance and a clubhouse with exercise and playground areas.

The homes would not be part of HUD development or subject to section 8 housing requirements but would be built under a tax credit program with the Mississippi Home Corporation.

Tenants would pay monthly rent on the properties and after 15 years, the properties would be available for sale. Tenants would be able to apply their previous rent payments to the purchase price of the home.
