Boys recognized for heroic effort



ELLSWORTH — Hancock County Sheriff Scott Kane presented two Winter Harbor boys with certificates of valor Tuesday morning at the Hancock County Commissioners’ meeting.

Logan Leighton, 14, and his friend Emmett Moshier, 12, were commended for their potentially life-saving actions Jan. 7, when they responded to a fallen woman’s cries for help in the bitter cold. The woman had slipped and broken a bone.
