A Schuylkill County man is dead after fire tore through his duplex home in Cass Township early on the morning of July 6, 2014. The fire started around 2:40 a.m. at 33 South Maple Avenue. When responders arrived the left side of the home was completely engulfed in flames. Attempts were made to get inside of the home in hopes of rescuing the victim, but were unsuccessful. Police said Richard “Rickey” Dermo, 65, died inside the burning building from a myocardial infarction (heart attack).

The 2011-12 East Coast Snowcross came to Burke this weekend for its first competition of the season. Burke greeted racers with a fresh track of snow, which was a relief given the unseasonably warm temperatures so far this season.

The Lowell-Eden asbestos mine, located on the same mountain range as Jay Peak in Northern Vermont, once produced 83% of the country’s asbestos and was in operation from the late 1800s until 1993. When it closed down due to EPA restrictions in 1992 everything was left as is, including the giant piles of unwanted leftover material known as tailings, and nothing is currently planed for the site.
