Pats on the Back

– To Dominic Alexander, 10, and parents Erica and Corey, of St. Clairsville. While Dominic was battling Hodgkins lymphoma, at 7, the Ohio Valley chapter of A Special Wish Foundation sent him to Disney World and Universal Studios. He is now doing well in remission. His mother said the family wants to “pay it forward.” They want to raise $2,500 for A Special Wish Foundation, through donations through her erica.alexander.5 Facebook page, in the hope that amount will be matched by Facebook.

– To all who worked on Thanksgiving as first responders, utility employees and in other jobs that made us all safer on the holiday. And to the many restaurant and store employees who went to work that day.

– To Indian Creek schools, where Hills and Wintersville elementary schools were recognized as “Breakfast All Stars” for their breakfast in the classroom programs.
