Etter-Markins Ride

The Etter-Markins Ride honors the memory of Hobart/Lawrence police officers Robert Etter and Stephanie Markins who were killed in the line of duty on July 22, 2002 near Wisconsin 54 and Bay Ridge Court. Motorcycles pass by the crash/memorial site where the two officers' families and colleagues gather.

The top photo below ran, along with a separate photo of the motorcycles on the highway. The second photo was an attempt at telling the story in just one photo... trying to get the bikes and the memorial site in the same photo. I'm not quite sure it does the job... I think it's on the borderline of being a difficult read. What do you think?
