Special Olympics torch passes through region

John Albright, 19, center, of Toms Brook, carries the Special Olympics torch as he and other runners make their way down Main Street in Mount Jackson on Wednesday morning. Law enforcement agencies in 18 regions throughout the state will carry the torch to Richmond on an eight-day journey to open the games there. The Region Six area, which includes the counties of Clarke, Frederick, Rappahannock, Shenandoah and Warren as well as the city of Winchester, started Monday in Winchester and was delivered to the Rockingham County line near New Market late Wednesday afternoon.
