New Year’s baby Brianna Lynne Williams arrived at 3:18 p.m. Monday at St. Luke Hospital in Marion. She slept through the excitement of being the first baby of 1993 born in Marion. Brianna, daughter of Carey Williams of Peabody, weighed 7 pounds 6 ounces and was 19 inches long.

Roads and streets in Marion County were coated with ice Saturday, keeping police officers and wreckers busy. City commissioners commended city workers who were called out often during the New Year holiday weekend because of power failures and icy streets.

Chris Vinduska of Marion recently was one of 10 students at Emporia State University to be initiated into Pi Gamma Mu, an international honor society for social science students.

Several volunteer emergency medical technicians, members of the Marion-based Marion County ambulance crew, received their service pins Monday. Those receiving one-year pins were Cindy Soyez, John Bezdek, and Mike Taylor; five-year-pin, Shelly Robertson; 10-year pins, Alana Taylor and Shawn Wunderlick; 15-year pin, Bob Matz; and 20-year pin, Gene Winkler.

Grocer Leland Heidebrecht is pictured as he receives a fax over an electronic machine at Quality Food Market. The service to the public makes it possible to send or receive a printed message or drawing anywhere in the nation or world. People receiving such messages do not need to have machines of their own but will be contacted.
