Sunday Reads

This week's Sunday Reads are about Memorial Day.

Flags have been placed at veterans' graves in the city in preparation for Monday's observances, like these in Oak Grove cemetery.

In our area, there are lots of things planned for Monday, to honor the fallen. We've got a list of Memorial Day events, here.

While many look forward to keeping things light this Memorial Day weekend with beach days and barbecues, it is a time that weighs heavy for others. No one feels the weight of the holiday more than Gold Star families who've lost loved ones to war.
