Students, volunteersreally dig their work
Above, Youngstown State University senior David Parker and junior Brittany Wylie work on excavating the Old Stone Bridge between Maag Library and Wick Avenue in Youngstown. Top right, volunteer Chuck Mastran helps excavate the bridge. At right, volunteers Dan Madden, left and Dale Wright work with shovels. The bridge has been covered with dirt for 40 years. John White, professor emeritus of anthropology and sociology, is leading a team of about 12 volunteers, including five YSU students, to uncover and restore the 26-foot-long bridge, which is perhaps 8 feet high at its tallest point.
