Crews were busy demolishing the former Maple Park Elementary School in the Walnut Grove section.  The building was abandoned for years until someone bought it online back in 2007 with plans to transform it into a Disabled Veterans Home.  Last January it was destroyed by fire and Johnstown City Codes didn't have the funding to tear it down but that all changed Thursday.  While some welcome the change others who attended the school say it's a bittersweet feeling.
