  • Domaschko given citizenship award

    Fred Domaschko says he’s not a hero, just a man at the right place at the right time.
    Domaschko was on his way home from work around 2:30 a.m. on Feb. 3 when he noticed the car in front of him swerving wildly.
    It was then that Domaschko noticed a 3-year-old child standing on the side of the road.
    The boy had wandered out of his Baton Rouge Road home and walked over a mile and a half in the snow. The child had no shoes and was wearing only a t-shirt and jogging pants.

  • Good citizen, indeed

    Fred Domaschko doesn’t consider himself a hero. He told the Grant County Fiscal Court he was just doing what his parents had taught him to do when he found a 3-year-old boy standing on the side of Interstate-75 in Williamstown on a cold, snowy night earlier this month. (See story on page 3.)
    Domaschko dialed 911 and waited with the little guy until help arrived.
    As it turns out, the child managed to get out of his home and walk for over a mile and a half, down an embankment before he was discovered.
