Several people were on hand last Tuesday night at the Clinton County Library to hear a presentation from historian and author Hugh Ridenour centering around Clinton County’s most decorated soldier of World War II, Garlin Murl Conner.

Held in conjunction with last week’s observance of Veteran’s Day, the program detailed Conner’s heroic actions while serving in the U.S. Army during World War II/
