The survivors of Pearl Harbor from Ohio were honored with a ceremony at Veterans Memorial in Columbus on Saturday. The Pearl Harbor Commemorative Medal gives the date of the attack by the Japanese, Dec. 7, 1941, with the words “Remember Pearl Harbor.” A Waverly veteran, Lester H. Helmick of Seventh Street, received his long overdue medal on that date. Polly Helmick accompanied her husband, along with their two sons and families, David, of Waverly, and Bob Helmick, of Westerville.
Do your children know what to do in case of an emergency? Traci and Sean Withrow, the children of Brian and Janice Withrow, who live on West North Street witnessed a car accident as they were getting off the school bus on Oct. 30. The two children checked to see if the car passenger was injured, got the name of a son and relative to contact, then called the police. Good thinking for a pair of young school kids.
