It's officially Fall! What do you associate with fall? Festivals? Newbern is next weekend! Raking leaves? Fun AT FIRST. Making apple butter? YES!

None was better in the late 1950's than that made by the Women's Auxiliary of the First Pentecostal Holiness Church. The first image is from Roger Peyton, his dad, the church pastor, stiring the kettle in the back yard of the parsonage. The second is an image taken by Rudolph Farmer (same place, Roger and others?) that is on the cover of PULASKI in the Images of America series by Arcadia Press.

Happy Fall all.

Presidential Proclamation -- Death of Shimon Peres
- - - - - - -
As a mark of respect for the memory of Shimon Peres, former President and Prime Minister of Israel, I hereby order, by the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States of America, that the flag of the United States shall be flown at half-staff at the White House and on all public buildings and grounds, at all military posts and naval stations, and on all naval vessels of the Federal Government in the District of Columbia and throughout the United States and its Territories and possessions until sunset, on September 30, 2016. I also direct that the flag shall be flown at half-staff for the same period at all United States embassies, legations, consular offices, and other facilities abroad, including all military facilities and naval vessels and stations.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this twenty-eighth day of September, in the year of our Lord two thousand sixteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-first.

How to properly fly your flag at half-staff

When raising the American flag to half-staff on a vertical pole, always raise it briskly to the top of the flagpole for a moment before lowering it.

When taking it down for the night, raise it to the top of the flagpole again & lower it to the bottom.

With a telescoping flag pole it is acceptable to put the USA flag on the second set of rings instead of the top set. In this case the top set would be left empty.

When the United States flag is flown at half-staff, State & other flags should be removed or flown at half-staff too.

What if you can't lower your flag?

For flags that can't be lowered, such as those on many homes, the American Legion says that attaching a black ribbon or streamer to the top of the flag is an acceptable alternative. The ribbon should be the same width as a stripe on the flag and the same length as the

I'm not a golfer, but Pulaski County has three amazing golf courses that continue the legacy of Arnold Palmer. What a wonderful man and sports hero. May he rest in peace.

"Some people would say that 'They broke the mode when Arnold Palmer was born'. I say Arnold was the mold, a class act who's loss will be felt in the realm of golf for years to come. Condolences to the Palmer Family, to Arnies Army and to the Golf Society as a whole. R.I.P Mr. Palmer"

Go Wake Forest!

Congratulations to a Pulaski County's hall of fame musician: Butch Robins. Note the following:

"On stage at Bean Blossom on Saturday after being presented with my official portrait that is now hanging in the Bill Monroe Bluegrass Hall of Fame ~ Uncle Pen is shown in the painting behind me. — at Official Bean Blossom and Bill Monroe Music Park."

Thanks, Butch for this comment. Fact is, you are an extraordinary musician. You are a Pulaski treasure. We deeply appreciate your and your colleague, John Viers, for helping get the "Pulaski Old Time Jamboree" up and going. Your legacy continues.
