HIGHLAND PARK, Ill. — Olympic figure skater Jason Brown's hometown has honored him with a 10-foot tall ice sculpture.
The northern Chicago suburb of Highland Park on Thursday unveiled the ice sculpture of the 19-year-old skater. It's in the town's Port Clinton Square and shows Brown doing a spin. The News Sun reports (http://bit.ly/1ji667i) a crowd of public officials, friends and fans attended.
