21) Lady Justice, which overlooks downtown Marion, Ohio atop the county courthouse, received an accidental upgrade to her equipment last weekend. In addition to the scales of justice and a double-edged sword, a seven-pound, nine-inch remote-control helicopter rests in the arms of the statue. Terry Cline, an independent visual communications producer, director and writer, said a camera-equipped drone was lost while he was taking pictures of the Marion County Courthouse for a surprise project for the Marion CAN DO! program and the Marion Area Convention & Visitors Bureau. Cline said the drone caught an unexpected breeze and he lost control. “I’m amazed it ended up where it is,” he said. Marion County’s commissioners said they had been contacted by Cline on how to retrieve the device. They are leaving it up to the sheriff’s office, the prosecutor’s office and the owner. Photo: Marion Star
