The morning sun rises on Sept. 11, 2012, as Walla Walla Fire Department firefighter-paramedic Jim Stovall stands at attention in front of the firefighter’s memorial in Crawford Park on Main Street to commemorate 9/11. Local firefighters took shifts, standing at attention from 7:30-11 a.m. today, during the time of the attacks. According to organizer Anthony Spada the department wanted to do something understated this year. “People have seen enough of the buildings blowing up,” Spada said. They wanted to do something to, “just remember.”
