That championship borough

Wednesday, January 22, 2014 by PAUL WILLISTEIN Focus Editor in Focus

Salisbury resident goes back to his roots for Fountain Hill 'Images of America' book

Once a "Hiller" always a "Hiller."

That passion for a sense of place is expected to bear fruit as a book.

Karol Strelecki, a Fountain Hill native, is working on "Fountain Hill," to be published by Arcadia Publishing in its "Images of America" series in time for this year's Christmas holiday season.

"All of the grandchildren live in Fountain Hill," says Strelecki, a retired educator. "That's part of what's getting me back there."
