Making way for a new nature trail
January 25, 2011 by Chris Dunn
I’m pretty sure Monday was the first day (in my experience here so far) to feature daytime temperatures in the single digits. Naturally, there was some breaking news (outside), and then my assignment was to cover some York Catholic High School students working on a nature trail (also outside).

Penn State Cooperative Extension has identified 274 illegal dump sites in the county, including the one next to York Catholic.
I also shot some video, which Randy threw together while I worked on another, forthcoming video project.
