The Whig received two replies to last week’s photo.

I believe the gentleman on the right is my father-in-law, Jay Glenn Slonecker Sr. This picture would have been taken several years before I met him, though. Probably during the time he was serving as mayor of the town of North East.

— Cheryl Slonecker, North East

The gentleman on the right is outgoing North East Mayor Jay Glenn Slonecker Sr. congratulating incoming Mayor John F. “Jack” Johnson in 1965.

— Albert Alexander, Earleville
