July 22 was called a "day of history-making" by local officials who braved a downpour and muddy field at a groundbreaking for the new Sunrise Manor Nursing Home.

A large number of Sunrise employees, volunteers and board members joined representatives of Branscum Construction for the ceremony and a reception back at the nursing home. Branscum from Russell Springs  is building the $10.8 million, 142-bed two-story facility on a 13-acre lot beside the current nursing home.

Site work begins next week.
