Ex-Ellsworth school transformed into logo printing firm
While area schools were welcoming back students for the fall term Wednesday, one former school site was nearly ready for a new purpose.

Bill Jiang is moving his Promotions Click business from Hastings, Minn., to the property along CTH G, east of Hwy. 63, which he found on a real estate's multiple listings service.
