CASD approves upgrades at pool, new playgrounds
Tuesday, July 22, 2014
By Jeff Corcino Staff Writer
The Clearfield Area Board of School Directors approved upgrades to the swimming pool at the high school and new playgrounds at the elementary school at their meeting last night.
The board voted to approve spending $304,667 on upgrades to the pool, which includes installing new drainage and pool deck, a new railing on the balcony, acoustical wall panels and acoustical wave baffles.
The bid was awarded to J.C. Orr and Son Inc. of Altoona.
The original recommendation was to keep the current railing, which would have saved $35,000. The current railing was built to code in the 1970s but is too short to meet current requirements, according to Superintendent Terry Struble. more...

The Chiefs dropped into the loser's bracket with a loss to Bedford on Sunday night, and Murrysville ended their season with an 8-4 victory on Monday afternoon.
Clearfield struggled all game to figure out the enigma that was Casen Wolinsky, who allowed two earned runs on six hits in earning the complete-game win. more...

By Andy Stine Sports Writer
