The 10- by 9-point rack at right initially was measured at 432 7/8 inches, based on standards set forth by the Boone & Crockett big-game scoring program. Only two bulls legally harvested in Pennsylvania have scored higher. The rack from the 5-by-7 bull is at left, and the sawed-off antlers from the 4-by-5 can be seen in front of it.

Charges filed in poaching of record bull elk
Wednesday, October 1, 2014
One of the largest bull elk ever recorded in Pennsylvania was shot illegally along with two other bulls this month, and three Centre County men have been charged with teaming in a poaching effort, the Pennsylvania Game Commission announced.
The largest of the three bulls had a 10-by-9-point non-typical rack that initially was measured at 432 7/8 inches, based on standards set forth by the Boone & Crockett big-game scoring program. At that score, and if the bull had been legally harvested, it would rank as Pennsylvania's third-largest bull elk ever.
The other two illegally killed bulls included a 5-by-7-point bull measuring 243 1/8 inches and a 4-by-5-point bull measuring 178 3/8 inches.
The bulls all were killed in the same area of Karthaus Township, Clearfield County, over two nights of poaching, more...

On the agenda was a motion to approve fundraising by the school's Educational Foundation. This would include the possibility of relocating the football field to the high school track area, the varsity softball field beside the varsity baseball field, and the junior varsity softball field to the current varsity field location.
Superintendent Gregg Paladina said what the Educational Foundation would like to do is to start fundraising now to see how far it could possibly get, but Paladina said this would be no overnight project. more...

By Jon Christoff Sports Writer
FLINTON - The West Branch volleyball team recently cracked the state rankings for Class A programs, and deservedly so for the manner in which the Lady Warriors have gone about their business.
While the lofty expectations go hand in hand with dominating performances against some Inter-County Conference teams, West Branch had a little bit of a surprise waiting for it on Tuesday night in Flinton.
Glendale gave the Lady Warriors all it had and - while the scores may not reflect it - made Terry Trude's more...
