STILLMORE — Though rubble is all that remains of a century-old school building in Stillmore after an Aug. 14 lightening-induced fire, David Emanuel Academy’s headmaster Marion Shaw calls the school’s current state “miraculous.” The new school year began on Aug. 12, but lightening struck the school’s historic columned building two days later, Shaw said. After just one week of clean-up, DEA resumed classes this past Monday with little or no evidence of a fire in any of the school’s other buildings, Shaw said.
