Wisnerites are keeping a close eye on the Blarney Stone these days as Saturday’s St. Pat’s Celebration approaches.The beefed up stone is about twice the size of the stone that originally graced the corner of 10th St. and Highway 275. It appears that the stepped-up guard and hefty size may prevent citizens of a certain Irish community to the west from removing it.

Meanwhile, plans are set for the annual celebration here. The Leprechaun Run will start at noon. Event-goers will be able to choose from several St. Pat’s themed food specials, the parade will start at 3 p.m. There will be two face painting sessions in the afternoon at the City Auditorium.
