As a resident of Greenwood County and retired National Park Service historian of 32 years I was alarmed by a the recent newpaper article (12/17/14) with front page headlines and picture stating Greenwood Mayor Welborn Adams' intent to change bronze plaques on the historic uptown War Memorial erected in 1929.

We want to say thank you to leaders and parents who volunteer their time to help contribute to the success of our Cub Scout Pack 270. It is a year around contribution and is a lot of work!! It's not just one meeting a week, there are hours of planning for week/monthly/yearly events and then hours involved to make those plans happen. Monday, December 8, 2014
In my office sits a chair. Crafted in the style of a director's chair, it waits patiently, with it's white painted arms, white canvas seat and a back rest full of love, respect, and legacy. On one side is a name - my name. In orange thread it spells out who I was and who I still am. Holly Kane - a scraggly little javelin thrower who'd never lifted weights before college. A kid who only had the chance to throw 2 months a year but fell in love with her sport. A girl who wasn't recruited to any college but was gifted the chance to walk on at the University of Tennessee. An athlete who finished her collegiate career as one of the top 10 javelin throwers to walk through UT's doors. And now it represent a woman who can face any other challenge or adversity head on. Who fights for what she believes is right. Who empowers other women to do the same. Who gives back to her community with her skills and her stories. All this and more are emblazoned on the front of that fabric.
