Thanks for saving
a piece of history
The Pharos-Tribune sends this Rose to LMC Workholding for saving a piece of World War II history:
Kudos to LMC Workholding President Jay Duerr for not only recognizing a piece of history tucked away in storage but also for going the extra mile to preserve it for future generations.
When Duerr found an 8 foot-by-4 foot cotton flag during a recent renovation, he didn’t know the significance of it but recognized a piece of history when he saw it.
We applaud the company for going the extra mile to learn the significance of the Army and Navy flag, which was presented to the company by the U.S. government in the early 1940s during World War II.
Encased in a frame, the more than 70-year-old flag now hangs in Duerr’s office for all to see. Good job, LMC.
to the graduates
The Pharos-Tribune sends this Rose to CLEAR and its first graduates:
It had to be a great day for the 43 people who walked across Franklin Elementary’s gymnasium to grab hold of a long-awaited GED diploma.
For many, it was no small feat to get to this point. And for many, it wouldn’t have been possible without the help of Cass-Logan Educational Attainment Resource.
Since opening in 2010, this was the program’s first graduating class, which saw a total of 111 people who finished their General Education Development classes.
Those graduates are now better armed for the fight that is the current job market. Thanks to CLEAR for leading the way.
A quick call to action
The Pharos-Tribune sends this Rose to the city’s crews that responded quickly to building collapse:
We wish this Rose could come under happier circumstances, but kudos to the city’s demolition crews that went into action at a moment’s notice when the historic Greensfelder Building collapsed Wednesday.
After an exterior wall and interior partition collapsed, city crews were quickly on scene to survey the damage and determine if the building posed a threat of complete collapse.
Unfortunately demolish was in order for public safety and crews went straight to work.
It’s sad to see the void on East Market Street, but we’re glad to know the city’s ready when needed.
