Saluting our veterans

Katy Scott of Wintersville, a senior at the Jefferson County Joint Vocational School and a member of the U.S. Army Reserve, placed a wreath at Veterans Park on Pleasant Heights Friday afternoon. Scott, whose home school is Indian Creek Local High School, will go on active duty when she graduates next spring. Several local residents along with city police officers and firefighters attended the ceremony. Sixth Ward Councilman Bob Villamagna spoke at the event to remember his father who was wounded in Italy during World War II.
