Two decades ago, the Rev. Ron Carnevali Sr. worked with children in the neighborhood. Now, as pastor at Johnstown Grace Brethren Church on Napoleon Street, Carnevali can’t help but sense a change for the better.
“There seems to be much more community pride now,” Carnevali said.
“The homes that were not cared for look worse now,” he said. “But they’re tearing them down, and that’s a good sign.”
And “Kernville” no longer is synonymous with crime.
