OUR TOWN EFFINGHAM -- Paying tribute to veterans is becoming a daily celebration. A Veterans' Memorial sits outside the historic courthouse and is getting a makeover.
    Eight stones were added to the original design. They show the names of veterans, dead or alive, from Effingham County. The Memorial Committee still has more work to do. They plan to make it easier for people to find names.
    The stones will soon be numbered and a log will show you where to look. The Veterans' Memorial Committee hopes to have everything done by November. It will cost about $250,000, all paid for by donations.
