An explosion at Appleton Papers’ Spring Mill knocked out a wall but caused no injuries. Boiler house employees were resetting the boiler when the explosion occurred at 1 a.m. on Dec 17. A fire broke out but was quickly contained by members of the mill’s emergency action team and local firefighters.
Martinsburg Borough Council agreed to an increase in its annual donation to Memorial Park to help with park expenses. In other years, council allocated $1,000, but agreed to $3,500 due to the financial crunch the park was experiencing.
