HALFWAY -- Tony Pruchniewski knows the greatest tribute to fallen troops isn't found in speeches or monuments. Instead, that tribute exists every day across the United States, he said, in something called freedom. That's why Pruchniewski is disappointed when Memorial Day ceremonies are sparsely attended by the public. "If people really thought about it, they would be there," he said. "Some countries have partial freedom, others have no freedom at all. We are blessed with the greatest freedom on earth, thanks to the courage and sacrifices of our veterans.

SOUTH MOUNTAIN, Pa. - Sunday's service at the Preserving Our Heritage Archives & Museum dually memorialized the past and celebrated the future, as the community recognized a World War II veteran and broke ground for an expansion of the museum. The new portion of the museum will be a reconstructed country store less than a mile down the road. The store will be dismantled and rebuilt "piece by piece" to accommodate displays that are overflowing from the original room designated for them, the Rev. Lee Daywalt said.
