"Adventures in Learning" await students in summer camp programs

July 14, 2013

For the second consecutive year the Elk County Catholic School System is offering a summer camp program focusing in the areas of religion, academic, arts, music, sports and character building as a way to emphasize that learning is a lifelong process, not something that happens just nine months of the year while school is in session.
All students from throughout the area are invited to participate in the camps, all of which are instructed by ECCSS faculty.

Fire extinguished at Domtar paper mill

JOHNSONBURG – Crews left the scene at approximately 9:30 a.m. Saturday morning after battling a large fire at Domtar paper mill in Johnsonburg for nearly 20 hours; the blaze broke out early Friday afternoon in a tunnel beneath the chip yard at the mill.
Domtar, which employs roughly 400 people, is functional as crews will manually transport wood chips to the plant rather than use the conveyor belt system.
