Painting her corkie

Nine-year-old Emily Sheets of Salem carefully paints her “corkie” Saturday at Centennial Park during the Summer Outdoor Arts & Crafts Show, sponsored by the Salem Parks and Recreation Dept. Corkies are ceramic figures that come in a variety of styles. They were sponsored as a free program by Carousel Creations from Austintown. Emily is a fifth-grader at West Branch and the daughter of Rich and Jessica Zeppernick of Salem. (Salem News photo by J.D. Creer)
