Fraternity members, volunteers remodel late officer’s home

NEW ALBANY, Ind. (AP) — Starr Pavey said her heart has been broken since her husband, Bill, died in June, but a wide smile appeared across her face as she spoke about his personality and gregarious nature.

Bill was a jokester who made everyone smile, even while he was battling cancer for the last five years of his life, Starr said.

“We laughed all of the time until the last month or so. He said it hurt him to laugh,” Starr said of her late husband.

Bill Pavey was well-known throughout southern Indiana for his service to the community. He worked for the New Albany-Floyd County Parks Department for over eight years as a park ranger before serving as a New Albany police officer for two decades.


It was the day of his death, June 3, when Starr said a friend who was at her house mentioned smelling gas. A

Downtown Arlington shops celebrate Abram Street remodel

As Hershey Jones set up his namesake restaurant in downtown Arlington in late 2019, Abram Street was undergoing a facelift of its own.

The arterial roadway, running from downtown to the Grand Prairie city limits, had been under some form of construction since 2014. Workers roped off lanes to install new drainage or sewer pipes or reduced lanes to make space for wider sidewalks or lighting. For Jones’ first several months running Hershey’s Palace at 513 E. Abram St., construction complicated parking and downtown.

“It raised a flag,” he said, “but I saw that it was further completed than from the time that I did what I had to do, that it wouldn’t affect me as much.”

Now, as the city puts the finishing touches on the project, Jones is seeing more people walk around — and passersby are seeing more of the businesses that line the street.

“We want

Portland Public Schools asks voters for $1.2 billion to remodel Jefferson High, expand curriculum and tech access: Election 2020 preview

When Portland Public Schools set out to pitch voters on a billion-dollar bond earlier this year, the district was doing so under very different circumstances.

Back in January, nobody in the city had heard the name George Floyd. Oregon wouldn’t see its first coronavirus case for another month. And district officials were considering how best to spend $39 million in new state tax revenue.

Months later, members of the school board’s bond committee wondered aloud whether it was wise to ask voters for hundreds of millions to renovate three high schools as the economy tanked and the district found itself drafting a scaled back budget.

Decision-makers across the state’s largest district ultimately decided to put forth a leaner proposal to rebuild Oregon’s only high school in a historically Black neighborhood, fund support programs for students in the area and pump tens of millions into curriculum, technological investments and accessibility updates
