STEP BY STEP — Obion Volunteer Fire Department Capt. Christy Holdeman neared the top of a flight of stairs as she did the inaugural 9/11 Memorial Climb at midday Saturday at Discovery Park of America. She was among 43 firefighters who made the rigorous climb to remember the 343 New York City firefighters who died in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Firefighters climbed the 12 flights of stairs 10 times in full gear to represent the 110 stories of the World Trade Center.
