Memorial Day reminders

These memorial crosses on the lawn of Newton Federal Bank on U.S. Highway 278 bear the names of Newton County soldiers who lost their lives in war. The crosses are erected each year as a way of reminding passersby of the sacrifices made by those who fought for freedom. For more on the meaning of Memorial Day, which will be observed Monday, May 26, please see Darrell Huckaby’s column on today’s Perspectives page. (Staff Photo: Julie Wells)
