Dear Editor, My husband and I purchased two graves at Danville Memorial Gardens; we also purchased lawn crypts and a bronze marker for ourselves. The salesman told us that because my husband was a veteran we would also receive a bronze marker for free from the Veterans Administration and that there was nothing we had to pay, telling us "not to worry," they would order it. The salesman never informed us of any charge to set the free veteran's marker. My husband died this year, and as promised, Danville Memorial Gardens ordered the free bronze marker from the VA. Now, after the marker has been ordered and received from the VA, they are telling me that I must pay for the marker to be set at their own "VA marker setting charge" of $500.

Two area people played key roles in Kentucky's joining the growing ranks of states with lotteries. One of them was a politician who grabbed the headlines. The other was a storekeeper who worked behind the scenes, but his role in the founding of the now 15-year-old Kentucky Lottery Corp. was an important one. In the headlines was the late Gov. Wallace Wilkinson, a Lexington-based millionaire textbook salesman who was a native of Liberty. Behind the scenes was J.N. Frankel, a prominent Danville merchant who for decades owned the city's landmark downtown business, the old Hub-Frankel Department Store.
