Sporting orange for safety

An Awareness for a Safe Community event was held at Junction City's Heritage Park last weekend. Mary Snipes organized the event to raise awareness about the challenges those who have lost loved ones face. Supporters wore orange to honor Snipes' son — Felix Snipes, who died after a shooting at 2306 Wildcat Lane on Aug. 31, 2018 — and others who have lost their lives due to gun violence and other acts of violence.
