Visible here is the name of Trooper Kenneth Velez, whose name is now engraved on the Ohio State Highway Patrol Memorial. The OSHP posted this picture Dec. 23. Velez fell in the line of duty this September, struck by a passing driver while conducting a traffic stop in Lakewood. His three children attended the Amherst Schools, including his son Christian, a current sophomore.
