Ready for the season

Noah Mcallister, a senior at Steubenville High School, plays the trombone during Tuesday’s Community Tailgate Party in Steubenville’s Herald Square Park. Attendees at the event, which was presented by the Herald-Star and The Weirton Daily Times, had the opportunity to purchase an advance copy of this year’s football edition, The Gridiron, and a light lunch, while enjoying a performance by the Big Red band. Proceeds will benefit literacy programs at the newspapers. Look for your copy of The Gridiron inside today’s edition. — Michael D. McElwain
