Students, community help construct house for Clear Creek teacher

There’s a house under construction along Mountain Avenue in Empire. And, even though her family isn’t living there yet, the home is already a new start for Clear Creek teacher Karen Artemis and her three children.

“What it’s given me, since the divorce, is starting over again,” Artemis said. “It’s giving me an opportunity to believe in myself — to be an independent on my own, raising my kids.”
