OUT AND ABOUT: Tee-Shirts for Peace Renaissance Fair

From small-town park to enchanted forest. A corner of Hoffer Park was transformed into a land of wizards and fairies, jesters and sages, during the Middletown-based charity Tee-Shirts for Peace Renaissance Fair on Sunday, July 20.

Tarot card readings, storytelling and drumming highlighted the mystical, medieval-themed gathering, a fundraiser for the nonprofit, which offers Reiki stress reduction, dream analysis and other holistic services to children in the hope of creating a more peaceful world.

See who danced and drummed among the fairies and wizards!

Ryan's Legacy: How a Steel-High football star’s death touched friends and family - and saved the lives of strangers

 

Standing on the track around the football field on Steelton’s Cottage Hill, Alison Mohn embraces a family friend, Mitchell, rubbing his head. “That’s how Ryan’s hair felt,” Alison says, a pang of pain in her voice. ryanpool8 21 13

It’s been almost 10 years since her son, Ryan Lee Mohn, the star quarterback on Steelton-Highspire’s football team, died from injuries he sustained in a car accident, but as the months and years pass, the reminders never fade away.

Some friends and family close to him have inked their remembrances on themselves – tattoos of his jersey numbers, angel wings and crosses. And a number of strangers have a reminder, too, a piece of Ryan that they literally carry with them.
