Buck recognized - Lawrence Township firefighter Jeff Buck's loss of life in the line of duty was recognized Saturday by the state Military Department of the Purple Heart Chapter No. 519. A plaque, in recognition of his service to the citizens of Pennsylvania, was presented to his family at the Veterans of Foreign Wars F. Michael Sicks Post No. 1785, Clearfield. From left are John E. DeLaney, chapter No. 519 commander; Katlyn Mitchell, Buck's girlfriend who accepted the plaque on behalf of his family; and John Rowles, VFW post commander. DeLaney said since the late 1990s, the Military Order of the Purple Heart has recognized firefighters and police officers killed or wounded in the line of duty. "They are front line troops that battle daily to control peace and tranquility in our society allowing each of us to pursue our daily activities." Buck died March 9 from injuries he suffered March 3 while fighting a fire. (Photo by Dianne Byers)

Annual banquet honors firefighters, 125th anniversary
Monday, April 20, 2015
By Terry Whetstone Staff Writer
Clearfield Fire Dept. President Deb Gray spoke during Saturday night's banquet at the Clearfield Fairgrounds about how Andrew Smith approached her last year and asked if she realized 2015 would be the department's 125th anniversary.
"Well, of course I didn't know that, and I'm not sure anyone else realized it either," Gray said. "Our anniversary was actually March 18."
She said an anniversary committee was put together and they plan to celebrate all year.
A toast was made at the beginning of the banquet with special fire department red wine and each seat had a commemorative 125th anniversary glass.
Gray handed out custom-made gold coins to all of the members in attendance. more...
