As part of the Reedy River restoration project, this section of sewer pipe will be buried, also conveniently serving as a place to dump soil freed up in the project. A section of the Swamp Rabbit trail near McDaniel Avenue is being torn up to begin work in that area.

Major Rudolf Anderson Jr. Memorial

This month marks the 50th anniversary of the Cuban Missile Crisis – a time when the world was close to a massive global nuclear war.   A local, Major Rudolf Anderson was shot down on October 27, 1962.   He and his fellow pilots played a  key role in defusing the situation.   The memorial was reworked to commemorate their service and explain the story of the Cuban missile crisis in a series of storyboards surrounding the display.   A dedication ceremony was held on Saturday October 27.
