Fraternity members, volunteers remodel late officer’s home

NEW ALBANY, Ind. (AP) — Starr Pavey said her heart has been broken since her husband, Bill, died in June, but a wide smile appeared across her face as she spoke about his personality and gregarious nature.

Bill was a jokester who made everyone smile, even while he was battling cancer for the last five years of his life, Starr said.

“We laughed all of the time until the last month or so. He said it hurt him to laugh,” Starr said of her late husband.

Bill Pavey was well-known throughout southern Indiana for his service to the community. He worked for the New Albany-Floyd County Parks Department for over eight years as a park ranger before serving as a New Albany police officer for two decades.

Downtown Arlington shops celebrate Abram Street remodel

As Hershey Jones set up his namesake restaurant in downtown Arlington in late 2019, Abram Street was undergoing a facelift of its own.

The arterial roadway, running from downtown to the Grand Prairie city limits, had been under some form of construction since 2014. Workers roped off lanes to install new drainage or sewer pipes or reduced lanes to make space for wider sidewalks or lighting. For Jones’ first several months running Hershey’s Palace at 513 E. Abram St., construction complicated parking and downtown.

“It raised a flag,” he said, “but I saw that it was further completed than from the time that I did what I had to do, that it wouldn’t affect me as much.”

Now, as the city puts the finishing touches on the project, Jones is seeing more people walk around — and passersby are seeing more of the businesses that line the street.

Row-House Remodel – Fine Homebuilding

Article Image

Synopsis: This late-1800s row-house kitchen had an awkward layout with a small half-bathroom encroaching on the space. The design team reworked the layout so the two rooms now work in tandem, incorporating a structural load-bearing post into the design. The five different ceiling levels in the original kitchen and dining room meant smoothing out the planes and creating a tray ceiling. A number of small but unique decisions including a wood range hood and an accent pendant light off-centered from the sink make this kitchen design truly shine.


Designer Nicole Cole, principal of vestige HOME, is accustomed to working in Philadelphia’s old row houses. She treasures their historical details and time-worn feel. “Even when it’s a new space, we want it to feel like there’s a bit of story to it,” she says. “It should be contextually appropriate.” That mindset informed the remodel of this late-1800s row-house kitchen.
