Donations sought for Sept. 11 memorial

The Retired Firefighters of New York City, Spring Hill Chapter 343, needs donations to help with the construction of the memorial garden at Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 10209, 14736 Edward R. Noll Drive.

The memorial will have a piece of steel from the collapsed towers of the World Trade Center, a slate tile from the roof of the Pentagon, a canister of soil from the Shanksville, Pa., crash site and paving bricks with the names of every victim of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. There is also a small remembrance of the 17 U.S. sailors killed on the USS Cole off the coast of Yemen in 2000.

The steel, tile and canister are in place, along with 681 engraved bricks. About 600 more bricks are needed to complete the project.

Donations of any amount are welcome, but sponsoring an engraved brick for the memorial wall costs $50.

Donations can be sent to 9-11 Memorial Fund, P.O. Box 343, Brooksville, FL 34601. For information, call Joe Holland at (352) 686-4401 or (352) 584-5365; or John Pasquale at (352) 683-7966 or (352) 428-9766.

  4. New Graham-Cassidy health care plan stumbles under opposition from governors

    Nation

    WASHINGTON — The suddenly resurgent Republican effort to undo the Affordable Care Act was dealt a blow on Tuesday when a bipartisan group of governors came out against a proposal gaining steam in the Senate.

    Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., joined by, from left, Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., Majority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas, Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo., Sen. Bill Cassidy, R-La., Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and Sen. John Thune, R-S.D., speaks to reporters as he pushes a last-ditch effort to uproot former President Barack Obama's health care law, at the Capitol in Washington, Tuesday, Sept. 19, 2017. To win, 50 of the 52 GOP senators must back it -- a margin they failed to reach when the chamber rejected the effort in July. [/J. Scott Applewhite | Associated Press]
