Remembering a special teacher

First-graders from Gold Run School in Nevada City sing a pair of Irish songs during a dedication ceremony Wednesday in memory of Sharon Wentworth, a teacher who died in February after a long struggle with cancer. Afterwards, students and teachers enjoyed juice bars under the memorial arbor, which was designed and built by school custodian Don Fowler.
