London Police officers received the Award of Valor during Monday’s City Council meeting. The awards were presented in reference to acts of valor on 10.1.19 when officers went above and beyond with disregard to their own safety to protect the lives of others. Their acts resulted in the arrest of an armed wanted subject.
Those who received the award include: Chief Darrel Kilburn, Captain Randy Medlock, Corporal Troy Truett, Ofc. Cody Faulconer, and Ofc. Ashley Taylor. Members of the Laurel Co. Sheriff’s Office were also recognized for their support and actions.
The City of London rang in the new decade with its second annual New Year’s Eve Extravaganza Tuesday night, featuring the Pink Cadillac band from Nashville and DJ Larry Lee to keep the festivities hopping until the ball dropped at midnight.
The event had something for all ages. Youngsters danced to the music. Middle-aged folk reminisced with many of their friends who came in from out of town. While older people stayed up past their bedtimes and kept warm inside the heated tent to welcome in the new year.
Everyone had a good time and it capped a great 2019 for the City of London.
The Christmas tree at Town Center Park and Levi Jackson Wilderness Road Park, with all its wonderful scenes, have added immensely to the festive atmosphere in London this holiday season.
A large crowd turned out for downtown London’s “Holiday At the Market,” which was created to encourage residents to purchase Christmas gifts from local small businesses, crafters, artists, and farmers. The city of London Tourism along with the London-Laurel County Farmer’s Market sponsored the event.
Space heaters kept the market nice and warm for shoppers as they walked along rows of bright crafts and gifts from area artists. Hot chocolate and Christmas songs from local youth gave the event a festive holiday spirit.
