Neighborhood beacon - Justin Houser of Grassflat showed off his Christmas spirit as he put up a colorful display at his home along Bedford Street. Houser said his father, Bill, strung plenty of lights for as long as he can remember, and he would always be outside with his dad helping. For the past eight years, Houser has taken over where his father left off. Six years ago, Houser said they started having a "grand reveal" for the display, in which his mother, Shelley, would bake cookies while Houser served hot chocolate to those who stop by. "It's a growing occasion and I get more people every year," said Houser. He also said the neighbors always comment on how they look forward to the occasion, and he tries to add a few new items each year. "I really enjoy bringing joy to my whole community," he said.

Under water system improvements projects, the Montgomery water transmission main/Wolf Run pump station project is 95 percent complete. Interconnections at the Hillsdale tank site were completed. Start up for the pump station is scheduled for today.

By Jon Christoff Sports Writer
HYDE - Clearfield swimming and diving coach Jackie Morrison wasn't sure what to expect out of her girls' squad this year. After the Lady Bison's first two meets, it doesn't appear that Morrison has too much to worry about ... at least just yet.
Clearfield took care of Huntingdon on Friday in its season opener, and then handled visiting Tyrone on Tuesday night at the Robert L. Shearer Natatorium in its first home meet.
The boys and girls teams took the top spots in every race they scored in, as both teams moved to 2-0 on the season. more...
