— PELL CITY, Ala. (AP) — Gov. Robert Bentley and officials with the Alabama Department of Veterans Affairs are dedicating the state's newest veterans' home in Pell City.

A spokesman for the governor says the ceremony at the Col. Robert L. Howard State Veterans Home begins at 10:30 a.m. Thursday. The home serves veterans who need skilled care and those who are more independent.

The new home joins the state's existing veterans' homes in Alexander City, Huntsville and Bay Minette.
