Volunteers continue to aid readers at middle school

March 28, 2012

Another page has turned on the reading assistance program at the Kane Middle School.
For 14 years, community residents have made weekly visits to the school to help sixth-grade students with their reading assignments.
"They're dedicated, patient and understanding," reading teacher Julie Jubon said in praising the volunteers. "They've really made a difference."
Many of the volunteers are retired persons or "stay-at-home moms," Jubon said. She said the volunteers faithfully show up every Tuesday morning from September to May to help students with their reading.

Fallen electrical lines ignite wildfire near Kane

March 28, 2012

Fallen electrical power lines ignited a wildfire late Wednesday afternoon on the west side of James City Hill on Route 66 south of Kane.
The Kane Volunteer Fire Department and the Highland Township Volunteer Fire Department responded to the blaze about 4:20 p.m. Wednesday.
Kane Fire Chief Tim Holt said it is believed that gusty high winds toppled a dead tree that took down the power lines. The arcing live wires started the wildfire in the woods, Holt said.
According to Holt, the winds continually whipped the flames in the brush and created heavy smoke.
