County given update on legal matter
Wednesday, May 27, 2015
By Wendy Lynn Brion Staff Writer
During yesterday's Clearfield County Commissioners meeting, Solicitor Kim Kesner gave an update on some legal matters the commissioners' office has been dealing with.
He said on April 14 Bigler Boyz Enviro Inc. presented a request to the commissioners to replace Eagle Towing and Recovery as the county's hazardous materials response provider. The county is currently under a three-year contract with Eagle Towing. The contract does provide for either party to give 30-day written notice to end the contract.

The Clearfield County Commissioners heard from the Clearfield Shrine Club during yesterday's meeting. The Shriners will hold their annual paper drive June 5-6. During the drive, representatives of the club will be stationed at various local businesses providing information about their hospitals. Sam Carr explained that there are 22 hospitals with one in Mexico and others planned for other countries. The hospitals provide orthopedic and burn care for children at no charge. Currently more than 60 children from the Clearfield area receive services from the hospitals, with the closest orthopedic hospital being Erie, with some cases referred to Pittsburgh, and the closest burn hospital being Cincinnati with some cases referred to Philadelphia. Though the families are not charged, the hospitals accept payment from insurance companies if the families wish. Donations are always accepted. Carr said they meet every Friday at the Arrowhead restaurant at noon and can provide more information. Shown, standing from left, are Vice President H. Judson Cosner, Carr, President Ed Blakely and Secretary/Treasurer Bob Ludrowsky. Seated are commissioners John Sobel, Joan Robinson McMillen and Mark McCracken. (Photo by Wendy Lynn Brion)

By Jon Christoff Sports Writer
PHILIPSBURG - Wooden bats level the playing field at all levels of baseball.
The way Philipsburg Pirates starter Chad Speigle was throwing on Tuesday in Philipsburg, it wouldn't have mattered what visiting Spring Mills used in the batter's box.
Speigle's fastball was too much for the Braves to keep up with, as he worked five sterling innings en route to earning his first win of the young season in a 3-1 victory.
The Philipsburg righty allowed just one hit and struck out 10. Speigle walked one and wasn't responsible for the run Spring Mills plated.
"He's a great pitcher, and I knew he'd have that (kind of performance) in him," said Pirates second baseman Drew Bryan. "I knew he'd be ready, and I feel like all the pitchers we have can do something like that. more...
