Herald of Dec. 30, 1969

The closing of the decade of the 60s was marked with some very significant news events on the local scene as well as by the moon landings and other major events at the world and national level. Top among the local news stories was the completion and opening of the new Spring Cove Junior High School. The dedication of the $3 million structure will be held Jan. 30, but it has been in use since September, replacing the old Morrison Cove Junior High, which has been closed, and the Roaring Spring Junior High, which has been converted into an intermediate school.

The Blair County Airport at Martinsburg measured an accumulation of 15 inches of snow by Saturday morning, Dec. 27. The wind gusted for 24 hours on the same day reaching a high of 49 knots or about 56 miles per hour. For a six-hour period on Saturday, however, the wind averaged 40 knots or about 46 miles per hour. The snow drifted across roads, onto porches – –even into garages. There was a white Christmas all around the Cove.
