  • Monday’s inauguration of President Barack Obama was smaller, but every bit as nice as his first inaugural day.
    Nancy Musselman and Sharon Anderson of Massillon know. They were there.
    Returning home today, Musselman said, “The first one was unbelievable. Yesterday was a smaller version of four years ago.”
    While there, the two also met Anderson Cooper.
    “He is just the nicest man you ever want to meet,” said Musselman, explaining that while in Washington, D.C., they ran into him while CNN was doing their show.
    Musselman and Anderson have been attending presidential inaugurations since 1985 when Ronald Reagan was first inaugurated.
    MCDONALD’S UPGRADE
    The newly renovated McDonald’s restaurant in Louisville has had a little local help.
    “The interior walls of the dining room have been upgraded with incredible photographic murals of downtown Louisville as it appeared in 1973,” said Laurie Yeagley. “The photographs were taken by my father-in-law, Micheal D. Yeagley, an architect and local resident who has lived in Louisville since 1969.”
    Yeagley was working for AEP when he took the photographs, and has since established a, “very successful, award winning independent architecture practice,” in Louisville. According to his daughter-in-law, the photographs had been given to the Louisville Historical Society by board member David M.Yeagley.
    “They caught the eye of the interior design firm(FCC Commercial Furniture in Roseburg, Ore.) They contacted the Historical Society, and an agreement was reached that the photographs could be used for this project in exchange for a contribution to the organization” Laurie Yeagley said.
