Leehy honored

Blair Police Chief Joe Lager, left, and Blair Mayor Jim Realph, center, honored officer Bob Leehy with an award during the city council meeting Tuesday for saving a citizen's life. Leehy responded to a call of a man down at the Walmart entrance, where two citizens were performing CPR on the man. Leehy got an automated external defibrillator from his police car to save the man. He was transported to the emergency room, and is "still working at Walmart today," Lager said.
