A proclamation declaring September suicide prevention month was read by Logan County Commissioner Tony Core. The Suicide Prevention Coalition of Logan/Champaign Counties hosts its first Survivor of Suicide memory walk from 1 to 4 p.m. Sept. 22, at Ohio Caverns, for families and friends who have lost a loved one to suicide and interested in local suicide prevention efforts. Contact Molly Smith at 465-1045 for more information. FRONT PAGE PHOTO: Participants in Friday’s suicide awareness ceremony at the Holland Theatre prepare for the annual release of balloons.
