Special accommodations are being made for World War II and Korean War veterans planning to attend Saturday's rededication of the Peace Monument.
The event is scheduled to start at 2:30 p.m. and Third St. will be closed to traffic from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Dave Meyer, a member of the Peace Monument restoration committee, said WW II and Korean War vets should park in the superior court lot off Third St. (across Third St. from the courthouse) or the Service Complex parking lot.
Fill up with food and then take a wagon ride around downtown Decatur — it can be done this afternoon and evening as part of the Festival of the Kekionga.
Taste of Decatur will open at Riverside Center at 4 p.m. and continue until 8. Also starting at 4 at Riverside will be wagon tours of the downtown area.
Local historian Max Miller will point out various historical spots during the tour, which will wind up at Riverside Center.
A truck apparently turning into Industrial Park 1 from E. Monroe St. late Wednesday morning knocked down an Indiana & Michigan (or American Electric Power) pole, causing a major power outage on Decatur's west side.
Traffic lights at several intersections on 13th St. were rendered unworkable, bringing out city police to direct traffic. The city street department rushed stop signs to the major highway.
