New pylons
The Wisconsin Newspaper Association (WNA) has erected a new memorial pylon at Trees For Tomorrow in Eagle River. The pylon (pictured) displays the name of each deceased publisher-member of the WNA. Each year, names have been added at a fitting ceremony during the annual WNA Trees Retreat. The names of more than 600 deceased publishers are now listed on the pylons.

The number 30 is typed at the end of a story and on the pylon signifies the end of their careers.    —Staff Photo By GARY RIDDERBUSCH
