Alpine residents will have a chance to show their support for hometown troops in the Persian Gulf Monday during a 5 p.m. event at City Hall. Mayor Elaine Barnes has commissioned a billboard that will list the names of hometown troops, and a flagpole will lighted so an American flag dedicated to local troops can be flown until the Persian Gulf conflict has ended and the flag retired.

Promoters plan to decorate the city park with yellow ribbons, and yellow ribbons will be available for sale at the City Hall event.
