Does anyone remember climbing on this cannon at Clark Park? Sadly this poor fellow has been put out to pasture and time has not been kind. There was a time when many small towns in the US had cannon to commemorate the fight and sacrifice of others for this country. Unfortunately the idea of children playing on weapons was too much for some to swallow and many were taken away. Agree or disagree, it certainly is nice to see this friend again.

And like people, some were better at their jobs than others. Here is a look at a trophy acknowledging a top-notched work term, an employee of the month so to speak.
