NEWPORT MAKES HISTORY
March 6-7, 1993
Talk about good news. Catch this:
Newport Volunteer Rescue Squad made history when squad members delivered its
first baby in its 17 years of existence on the way to the hospital.
“It’s the most thrilling thing that’s happened,” squad member Barbara Himmeger
Joseph Weston Greene was born last week to Lana Greene of Upper Newport at
11:59 near the Willow Island Locks and Dam on Ohio 7 North. Assisting
with the birth were squad members Himmeger and Bill Greene.
John Turner was driving and Alice Greene and Mary Lou Reynolds assisted
Himmeger and Greene.
Joseph weighed 7 pounds 11 ounces and was 20 ½ inches long. “A beautiful
little boy,” Himmeger said.
