By GUY FLETCHER Staff Writer CLEAR SPRING - They dedicated a new press box at Clear Spring High School Saturday afternoon, but those who made the ceremony possible said it was really about more than a new building. That's because the press box was literally built by the community itself - from the parents who gave up their nights to haul bricks to the area businesses who donated supplies. "It's just tremendous that the community came together to support this school," said Eugene "Yogi" Martin, supervisor of health education, physical education and athletics for the Washington County Board of Education.
