Brown County, Ohio

Brown County is a county in the U. S. state of Ohio. As of the 2010 United States Census, the population was 44,846; the county seat is Georgetown. The county was created in 1818 and is named for Major General Jacob Brown, an officer in the War of 1812, wounded at the Battle of Lundy's Lane. Brown County is part of OH-KY-IN Metropolitan Statistical Area. After the American Revolutionary War, the federal government established the Northwest Territory, a large area which encompassed the present county. In 1790 several counties were established, Hamilton among them. In 1797, a portion of Hamilton was partitioned off to create Adams County, in 1800 another portion was partioned to create Clermont; this lasted for two decades. Among the early settlers was Jesse Root Grant, who built a home and set up a tannery in the future Georgetown area, where young Hiram Ulysses spent his youth. On 1 March 1818, portions of Adams and Clermont counties were partitioned off to create Brown County, with Georgetown as its seat.

The boundaries of the county were altered in 1874. Brown County was said to be the place of origin of the White Burley type of tobacco, grown in 1864 by George Webb and Joseph Fore on the farm of Captain Frederick Kautz near Higginsport, with seed from Bracken County, Kentucky, he noticed it yielded a different type of light leaf shaded from white to yellow, cured differently. By 1866, he harvested 20,000 pounds of Burley tobacco and sold it in 1867 at the St. Louis Fair for $58 per hundred pounds.

St. Rose Academy (Mayfield, Pennsylvania)

Saint Rose Academy was a private high school in Mayfield, Pennsylvania. It was located within the Roman Catholic Diocese of Scranton, however as it did not operate under the blessings of the Bishop, it was never a Catholic school; the school was established in 2005 to replace Sacred Heart High School, which the Diocese elected to close after the 2004–2005 school year. The new school was not operated with the blessing of the Bishop and was not considered a Catholic school. However, the school currilculm did follow Catholic theology and was attended by Catholic students. In 2010, mounting financial troubles including a lawsuit by teachers who weren't being paid appropriately, a default on building loans, not being current on federal taxes forced the building to be sold at a sheriff's sale auction. St. Rose Academy closed on October 22, 2010. A official document from the administration cited "low enrollment" and "mounting financial obligations" as the main reasons why the school had to close. Informally, it was circulated through the community that fears about the loss of clear title to the building over the summer caused the hard-earned and increasing enrollment of about 75 to plummet to just over 30, which put the school's budget out of its means, as its income was slashed in half.

The announcement of closure came after plans were made to move back into the three story 1950's-style Sacred Heart High School building in center-city Carbondale, which has remained vacant since the closure of Sacred Heart High School in 2005. Official website
