Miller Park is the site for a day of honor and remembrance for veterans from the greatest generation and then some, breaking a world record in the process.
The showing of a documentary based on the Stars and Stripes Honor Flight brought tears to the eye, cheers from the crowd and broke a record for attendance. "Field of Honor," a documentary based on the journey of veterans to visit their war memorials in Washington, D.C., had its premier showing at Miller Park to a nearly sold-out crowd estimated at 33,000. Official totals confirmed by a representative of the Guiness Book of World records put the exact attendance at 28,442. The Honor Flight Network began in 2004 when Earl Morse, a retired air force captain and physician's assistant at a VA clinic in Ohio realized most of his patients who were World War II vets had neither the funds nor the physical ability to make the trip to see their own …

Oak Creek editor Mark Schaaf was just a twinkle in his father's eye during the last Suds Series, but better late than never: He's attended every playoff game at Miller Park and sleeps next to a Gorman Thomas bobblehead. When Nyjer Morgan tweeted “I hope those crying birds injoy watching tha Crew in tha Playoffs!" on Sept. 7, few could have imagined just how wrong Morgan would turn out to be. Well, the spelling and grammatical errors were obvious. But more importantly, the Cardinals were an after-thought in the playoff race at that time. You know how it turned out: St. Louis would go on a tear, catch and pass the Atlanta Braves on the final day of the regular season, and upset perennial favorite Philadelphia in the National League Division …

An interesting mix of news dominated the headlines of Greenfield Patch from June 27 through July 1, but no story did so more than the retirement of Police Chief Frank Springob. After 46 1/2 years with the Greenfield Police Department, Springob retired Thursday. We took a neat look of Springob through the years thanks to photos submitted by Greenfield police, asked city officials to share their thoughts on Springob and even took a look at 1965, the first year Springob was on the job. In other news, the owner of Robert Haack Diamonds found himself in the middle of a controversy because of comments he made about conceal and carry. Bret Eulberg has been getting an "earful" on Facebook after saying he would post a sign at his store's entrance …
