A half-mile stretch of Highway 231 in Pinckard is expected to be renamed for Charles Poland.
Wednesday, the state Senate passed a resolution to rename the portion of the highway the Charles 'Chuck' Albert Poland, Jr. Memorial Highway.
Senators Harri Anne Smith of Slocomb, Jimmy Holley of Elba and Billy Beasley of Clayton sponsored the bill.
Meanwhile, Ozark attorney Will Matthews has asked President Obama to bestow the Presidential Medal of Freedom on Poland. It is the nation's highest civilian honor. We've attached a copy of Matthews' letter to the president to this story.
