A proposal for a modernization project for the Buzzi Unicem plant in Maryneal was presented to two groups on Monday--the Nolan County Commissioners and the board of directors of the Nolan County Hospital District (NCHD).
The presentation offered a recap of the previous project in Maryneal, an update on the industry as a whole, a group overview of Buzzi Unicem USA, the current status of the plant, and the proposed project.
A groundbreaking ceremony took place Tuesday morning at Rolling Plains Memorial Hospital for their new Cardiac Rehabilitation Center.
Hospital Board members Kirby Andrews, Steve Holcomb, Jose Villafranca, Vickie May and Cheyenne Smith, along with Donna Boatright, Hospital Administrator, and Wes Stafford, Director of Cardiac Rehab, threw the first shovelful of dirt with golden shovels to mark the occasion.
Hospital Department Managers, Chamber of Commerce members and community members attended the ceremony as well.
Don Creed passed away Sept. 21, 2013 at Elk City, Okla. at the age of 67 years, six months and 18 days.
Memorial services will be held at a later date.
