A newly named street in Mount Sterling honors the memory of two men and their service to the country.

On May 27, more than 70 people attended the dedication of Timmons Way, named for brothers James and Max Timmons who resided in Mount Sterling and were World War II veterans. The street is located behind the town gazebo, off of East Main Street.

James was an Army Ranger who served in the Pacific campaign, fighting in the Philippines and Okinawa. He was awarded two Bronze Stars. Max enlisted in the Marine Corps, served in the Pacific, and was awarded the Navy Cross for gallantry in action on Saipan.

Among those on hand for the dedication of Timmons Way in honor of World War II veterans, James and Max Timmons, were: (from left) John Timmons, Maj. Mark Mason who served as the speaker, Mount Sterling Mayor Billy Martin, Raymond Timmons and David Timmons. John, Raymond and David are brothers. James was their father, and Max was their uncle.
