SOAPBOX DERBY Twelve-year-old Donald Tanner III, left, and his brother Daniel, 11, get some help Monday from fellow Boy Scout Joey Gibson, 13, with the floorboard and brake pedal of their soapbox car.
The brothers will race in the Soapbox Derby Championship Race June 30 in Hattiesburg. Both are members of Boy Scout Troop 9. They hope to bring soapbox racing back to Meridian, which has not hosted a soapbox derby in about 40 years.
