Book Synopsis
In 1969, in the Anthracite Coal Region of Northeastern Pennsylvania, the Dickson City, Olyphant, and Throop school districts merged to become the Mid-Valley School District. Soon afterward, plans were made to build the new Mid-Valley Junior-Senior High School. The plans were put on hold indefinitely. In 1977, the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry condemned two elementary schools. Some residents wanted a new school built; others wanted the old schools renovated. Lively debate ensued.

This book is a combination local history book and a memoir. There is a narrative that comes to a climax when the schools are condemned. Historical information and personal accounts describe how the school district got into that situation, and how the problems were ultimately resolved.
