Eternal flame memorial in need of repair

Fighting back tears, a Pulaski County veteran Monday night insisted the county make it a priority to repair the eternal flame memorial in front of Pulaski County Courthouse.
George Rash said he can’t help but hang his head every time he sees the cracked memorial to veterans, noting that it’s a shame the memorial reflects on how the county honors its veterans.
Rash said it was his understanding the memorial was going to be repaired, but it is yet to be done.
“It’s time that you fix it and make it a priority,” Rash told Pulaski County Board of Supervisors Tuesday. He said the amount of gas feeding the flame also needs to be reduced because “it’s using enough to energy to heat five homes.”
Rash said there only needs to be a small flame.
Massie District Supervisor Frank Conner agreed.
“I don’t know how much it will cost to fix, but it needs to be a top priority,” the supervisor said. He also agreed that the memorial is consuming too much energy, adding that he’s sure area veterans wouldn’t want to see the memorial wasting energy.
“There’s probably more energy being used there than in both courthouses,” Conner said.
County Administrator Peter Huber apologized to Rash for the delay in having the memorial repaired.
