Take may not be the word, but Ambra Scarlett certainly has done well since heading to Australia in 2002. She recently received a master of education in educational computing and a second in educational leadership and management. Ambra, a 1997 graduate of GSHS and daughter of John and Donna Scarlett of New Castle, plans to stay in Australia for a few more years.

Donna Accardi would love to send a big thank-you to Becky of the Starbucks Ranch and Janet, owner of O.S.M Delivery, for welcoming everyone to come visit their new red caboose.

“It was so nice of them to let anyone and everyone come see the inside and hear all the wonderful and gnarly stories of how it got moved from the Aspen Glen area to up Cattle Creek Road,” said Accardi. “It was such a nice treat on my dad’s 70th birthday; he’s a huge train buff.”
