Everyone is urged to attend the Fayetteville City Council meeting that begins at 6 p.m. today and learn the details of the proposed rezoning that would allow student apartments and many other projects to be built on the former Washington Livestock Auction property: This may be your only chance to protect this National Shrine from inappropriate construction on its eastern boundary

RNCIC's new bylaws go into effect Jan. 1, 2011, and everyone is invited to join with a variety of membership levels offered

We have recently purchased two properties on Hill Ave. which will give the RNCIC a block of four properties to turn over to the VA for future burial sites at the Fayetteville National Cemetery.
