    Army veteran Mike Elliott, the founder, and president of the Parachute Team served in the Persian Gulf War, Desert Storm and Operation Iraqi Freedom.

    FULTON, Ark. (KTAL) – On Saturday, a bridge crossing interstate-30 in Hempstead county was dedicated to Maleah Davis, the 4-year-old whose remains were found near exit 18 in May. 

    The former Red Lake Bridge will now be remembered as the Maleah Davis Memorial Bridge.

    Maleah went missing from her Houston home on May 4, 2019 and investigators found her body in Hempstead County on May 31, 2019.

    Several officers who worked the investigation were in attendance along with members of the community. Officials said this story will never be forgotten.

    “Closure helps and we hope that everybody that passes this spot will look at this sign and say there’s an angel on this bridge or right near to this bridge near and dear to us, ” Hempstead County Sheriff James A. Singleton said.

    Singleton said he expected more people to come out today,  but was grateful for those who came to witness the revealing of not one, but two signs on the bridge.

    “The crowd that did come I think expressed their love. the citizens of Hempstead County that did show up I appreciate them very much. Whether one showed up or a thousand showed up, we were going to honor Maleah today and we did so,” Singleton said.

    In honor of Maleah,  Singleton brought all the children attending the ceremony to the podium to sing “Jesus Loves Me” as a blessing to protect the other kids of Hempstead County.

    The Maleah Davis Memorial Bridge crosses interstate 30 in Hempstead County Arkansas.

    On September 14, Jen Gallagher Coultas inquired on the York County 411 Facebook page asking “Does anyone know of a program or a way to have a police officer come with a car to a child’s birthday party for 15-20 minutes and do a demo of the car (lights, siren, etc) and maybe let the kids get a photo in the car?”

    The post went on to explain that her son was turning four years old in November and that he wants to be a police officer. The mom asked if it was allowed for an off duty officer to show up at her son’s party.

    Sergeant Eric Hart responded to the post saying he’d love to come out.

    On Saturday, the mom posted to the same Facebook page detailing how Sergeant Eric Hart along with other members of the York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office showed up “BIG TIME” for her son’s birthday party.

    SPRINGFIELD, Tenn. (WATE) – Back in 2010 the third battalion fifth Marines were conducting operations in Afghanistan for Operation Freedom. Just one month into their tour, the Marines were attacked. Twenty-five were killed and 200 more wounded.

    Alec Catherwood was one of those marines that lost his life that day. Since then his mother Gretchen Catherwood has been on a mission of her own. That mission is to create a safe space for combat veterans once they come home.

    Marine veteran who passed away in 2010

    “Just a place for them to come together and hang out and communicate with other veterans who have been where they’ve been,” said Gretchen Catherwood, the founder of Darkhorse Lodge in Springfield, Tennessee.

    Catherwood broke ground on the lodge back in 2016. Operating on donations alone, the organization has raised more than $700,000. Now the walls are up and the electrical is in, but there is still a lot more work to be done.

    “We’re not giving up, we will keep going until the first guest walks through the door,” she said.

    Once the lodge is open the veterans who risked it all will have a safe place to call their own and get the VIP treatment they deserve. ” This is for active duty veterans and veterans who are no longers serving but if they’re a combat veteran they are welcome to a five to six-day stay free of charge,” said Catherwood.

    Veterans will not only have a free place to stay at the lodge they will also enjoy fishing trips and wood-working classes as well as other activities.

    PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) – Sunday was a historic day for Court Street Baptist Church in Portsmouth. The congregation celebrated two-hundred and thirty years.

    The historical marker issued by the Virginia Department of Historic Resources sits near the corner of Court and Queen Streets. 

    The pastor of the church Dr. Wilbur Kersey says the marker tells the story of the church, which traces back to 1789.

    He says the marker reads Court Street Baptist Church is the oldest Baptist Church in Portsmouth and Norfolk.

    Dr Kersey has worked hard to get the historical marker for the church.

    “Its very strenuous its a shortened version of a dissertation or a thesis I mean really you have got to document with original sources you cannot just have second-hand information, and the committee does a magnificent job they review carefully and make changes which are most appropriate and I’m impressed with what they do as well as the baptist historical society at the university if Richmond.”

    Dr. Wilbur Kersey, Pastor of Court Street Baptist Church

    Also as a surprise to Dr. Kersey and his family, new wording was unveiled on the court street academy building, displaying both the pastor and his wife’s name.

    Dr. Kersey has been the pastor at the church for sixty years. He says it’s been a privilege to teach and worship in the same church for so long.
