2. A controversial fire district ordinance intended to help the city meet some of its long-term fire service needs is a tax, not a fee as some city officials thought. Mayor Gene Hobgood said it is time to go back to the drawing board.
3. Head to Heritage Park from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday for the American Heroes Air Show, which organizers describe as "the nation’s premier admission-free helicopter-only aviation event dedicated to educating the public about the unique capabilities of helicopters in law enforcement, fire service, public/private EMS, homeland defense and national security." At 11 a.m., the U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Service will conduct a special Naturalization Ceremony for foreign born members of the U.S. Military and others as they become citizens.
