HVAC program teaches new skills
Fairmont Area Schools has a new HVAC program this year. The program is housed in the high school’s new vocational building and is taught by Adam Carstensen. What a great program to help fill the future shortage of vocational workers, especially in the HVAC area. It’s nice to see the district and community working together to provide opportunities like this to our youth.
Council talks community center future
It was disappointing to see the action some city council members and city leaders took Monday in regards to the community center’s next steps. The voters already passed the special tax and the city committed $14 million if an operator was found and an additional $6 million was raised. Both of those things happened. How can we trust our city leadership again? This project saw delay after delay. The city administrator and mayor should have been steering this project in a positive direction.
Theatre to increase offerings
Fairmont 5 Theatres has had a successful first six months and has some exciting things happening in the future. Right now, the theatre has partnered with area businesses to offer free holiday movies for families. How fun! Thank you to those sponsors. The theatre has proven to be a good addition to the community and we look forward to the remodel.
