Two Adams Central teachers, Holly Mishler and Karen Flesch, have gone above and beyond to show their students that even in a small community like Monroe, big things can happen.
The pair recently collaborated on a children's book called "Grandma's Garden," a story about loss and grief, which can be a confusing time for many, especially children who may have a difficult time discussing the emotions they are experiencing.
Contested races for two seats on the South Adams School’s board of education will be settled during the Nov. 6 general election.
Amy Orr, who currently holds a board seat from District 3, filed for the board’s at-large seat, setting up a three-way race with Debra Gerber and Gresham Bearss. Orr’s current term isn’t due to expire until 2014. The at-large seat is currently held by Steve Dobler, who is not seeking a new term.
