Todd Carlisle, an employee with the Veterans Energy Group, operates an excavator to load debris from a residential demolition on Anderson Boulevard into a pickup Monday afternoon. The home, which was located at 1890 Anderson Blvd., is the first of 11 assigned to the Veterans Energy Group through the city’s Potters’ Progress initiative. Mayor Greg Bricker said the program is made possible through the cooperative efforts of the Columbiana County Sheriff’s office, Land Bank, Treasurer and Prosecutor, who have been a “huge help to get these places through the progress.” (Photo by Stephanie Ujhelyi)
