Spelling errors found on Juneteenth statue
Morning Journal Writer
LORAIN -- ''Coutny,'' and ''Presdient.''
Those misspellings are on the back of the bas-relief statue placed at Black River Landing during the Juneteenth dedication June 16. The African Heritage Walkway Committee, the group responsible for the dedication, discovered the spelling errors located on the back of the monument.
''When we looked at it after the dedication ceremony, we noticed these things and immediately called the company,'' committee President Sylvia DuVall said.
