Future Home for Women Veterans Gets $40k Worth of Help To Open

Mary Chitwood just won a major victory when the city granted her zoning request that will allow the home to open. Mary's good news doesn't stop there. Bill Kennihan owns a local plumbing, heating and air business and says he had to get involved when he heard what Mary was doing and why.
