GEORGIA COUNTY HONORS CIVILIAN HEROES WITH COMMEMORATIVE MEDALS

[An E-Sylum reader forwarded this story about a county in
the state of George which honors civilian heroes with
commemorative medals (called "coins" in the article.
-Editor]

The Placer County Board of Supervisors honored eight people
this month for outstanding community service, presenting them
with commemorative coins created for a county citizen-recognition
program.

The board created the program in December 2002 to recognize
outstanding citizens who have long track records of community
service, have performed heroic acts or participated in
little-known, but commendable feats.  Supervisors choose
recipients from their districts.

The commemorative coins feature the county seal on one side.

On the other side are the word "hero" and the image of an
eagle with a star and sun rays in the background.

That second side of the coin was designed by J. Randal Smith,
an Auburn native who is a nationally known artist. His design
won a competition coordinated by the Arts Council of Placer
County.
