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.


It was the day of his death, June 3, when Starr said a friend who was at her house mentioned smelling gas. A

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.
