Monument to fallen soldiers missing
(2008-07-10)
(WOUB) - Something is missing from this year's Lawrence County Fair.

A monument to war dead has been stolen from the entrance to the fairgrounds in far southern Ohio.

Dean Cooper with the local Veterans of Foreign Wars says the cement statue of a helmet sitting atop a gun probably weighed about 100 pounds and was donated a few years ago. He describes the thieves as "low-down."

During the fair's opening ceremony on Monday, a prayer was offered so the culprits would be moved to bring the monument back.
