Statue of Stinger the Yellow Jacket, Chester, IL

Along the "Popeye and Friends Character Trail" in Chester, IL stands one character I don't recall harassing Popeye, stinging Sweetpea, or in the Sea Witches entourage. Memorialized in front of the Chester High School is "Stinger" the CHS Yellow Jacket's Mascot. The statue was sculpted by the same artist who placed the other Popeye sculptures around the town and is paid for by the purchase of honorary bricks that line its base and pavement in front of the Gymnasium.
