Little Indians thank responders

The Southern Local Little Indians decided recently to give back to local first responders. They raised money by selling pins of ceremonially folded flags that where graciously donated by the American Legion John Adam’s Post 442.

They raised over $600 and split it equally between the Salineville Police department, the Salineville Fire Department and the Highlandtown Volunteer Fire department. Each department received a check for $220 which was presented to them by the Southern Local Little Indians football players and cheerleaders on Sept. 25 in honor of the 10th anniversary of Sept. 11. The Southern Local Little Indians players, coaches, and staff thanked all first responders for answering calls in times of need.

Tag day raises $2,223

Retired Sgt. Deputy Sheriff Kenny Biacco has reported the tag day held Oct. 2 in Wellsville totaled $2,223.50. A thanks goes out to all the deputies who contributed to the three-hour event including Sgt. Brandon Hoppel and deputies Willie Coleman, Jeff Haugh, Kevin Schulas, Hartley Malone and Tab Bailey.
