(New Paris, OH)--The village of New Paris has received an incredible Christmas gift. "It's a miracle for Christmas. It was wonderful," said New Paris Mayor Kathy Smallwood. For years, New Paris leaders have worked to demolish the former CR Coblentz K-12 school building and redevelop the land into a park. The village had come up with $250,000, but that will still well short of the estimated cost. Then, this happened..."We had word that there was an anonymous donor who was going to give us $100,000 to finish the project. We are ecstatic," Smallwood said. Smallwood knows they may never know who the donor is, but wants to thank that person or family.
