Shenandoah puts on patriotic best for 20th anniversary Memorial Day Festival and Parade

SHENANDOAH — As it does each year at this time, the Town of Shenandoah will put on its most patriotic face for the thousands expected to turn out for the 20th Anniversary Memorial Day Festival & Parade. A classic car Cruz In on First Street at 6 p.m. Friday serves to kick off red-white-and-blue weekend festivities, which include a memorial ceremony at VFW Avis O. Comer Post 8613, car and truck, tractor and motorcycle shows, and, of course, the parade at 3 p.m. Saturday. Councilman Dave Hinkle, who is co-chair along with Nancy Karnes of the Memorial Day festivities, expected the final parade-entry tally to top 100. Add to that, the car show and all the other events scheduled for the weekend, and, Hinkle said with a chuckle, between participation and attendance, "we'll have more people than we have in the town."

Page Memorial Hospital debuts rehab services facility

LURAY ― An old ER has a new purpose in Page County. Local patients receiving physical, occupational and speech therapy services will now be treated at a “rehabilitated” rehab facility on the Page Memorial Hospital campus. Valley Health officials debuted the 7,000-square-foot Outpatient Rehabilitation Services facility during an open house on Tuesday. The facility officially opened last Tuesday. The Valley Health System's latest $1.5 million project includes seven private treatment rooms, one speech therapy room and a 1,200-square-foot central gym area. The facility is located in the parking lot adjacent to PMH, in the only remaining portion of the old hospital, which was constructed in 1999. Renovations to the former emergency department began in November.

Future of Elkton’s old town hall remains cloudy

ELKTON — Town staff might not return to the former Civil War hospital most recently used as Elkton’s Town Hall. Mayor Wayne Printz and Troy Shifflett, the town’s public works director, said at last Monday night’s Town Council meeting that the building at 173 W. Spotswood Ave. is in very poor condition. An effort is being made to rid the structure of asbestos and mold. The town moved its operations to the Elkton Area Community Center nine months ago after the first floor of the structure flooded.

Planners discuss Elkton code changes

ELKTON – Modifications to the town code for transitional housing were proposed last week by the town’s Planning Commission. The modifications need to be approved by council after a public hearing that likely will take place in January. Pham Chopra’s recent flurry of property purchases in Elkton has prompted the changes, as he plans to open transitional housing for drug and alcohol addicts and victims of post-traumatic stress disorder. The proposals include modifying the definition of a “dwelling” in Chapter 110, Section 302 of the town code, which pertains to land development, to add four things that would not be considered a dwelling. These include: transitional housing/living center, home for adults, group home and nursing home. Additional changes include defining “living/sleeping quarters” and “transitional housing/living center.”
