Advocates are seeking a nursing home for veterans in south-central Kentucky.

Reports say Ray Biggerstaff of Alvaton and Col. Robert Spiller of Oakland have spoken to Bowling Green commissioners and Warren County officials in their effort to bring such a facility to the area. They have gotten dozens of letters from supporters.

Biggerstaff says they are still working on getting enough land donated so that Bowling Green can get to the top of a list of cities competing for the next veteran's nursing home in Kentucky. He says a piece of land between 10 and 30 acres is needed.

Spiller says a veterans' nursing home would allow vets to pay based on their resources. He said other nursing homes can be a lot costlier.
