MORRISDALE - Daniel Bratton, 49, of Philipsburg died in a one-vehicle crash yesterday afternoon in Morris Township.
Eye witnesses told Morris-Cooper Regional Police that Bratton went through a stop sign at the intersection of Powell Street (Hawk Run) and the Morrisdale-Allport Highway without stopping, then traveled north on Morrisdale-Allport Highway before the vehicle made a sudden right turn and struck a tree head-on at 1745 Morrisdale-Allport Highway at about 3:25 p.m.
Firefighters on scene said Bratton and a female passenger were both trapped in the vehicle and had to be extricated with the Jaws of Life. The female passenger was flown via medical helicopter to UPMC Altoona and her injuries were listed as critical. more...

REYNOLDSVILLE - To allow development of a recently-sold tract in its air commerce park to progress, members of Clearfield and Jefferson Counties Regional Airport, at yesterday's meeting, gave permission for the authority's chairman to sign documents applying for funds for property development.
The go-ahead will allow the authority to apply for capital budget funds from the state to be used to plan for and prep the site for construction, including adding infrastructure and electrical lines, and accept the design plan for the plot prepared by GAI Consultants, DuBois, the authority's engineer. The grant will pay 50 percent of the development cost with the purchaser paying the remaining balance. more...

CLARION - If the Clearfield boys basketball team was looking for a theme song, Meatloaf's "Two of Out of Three Ain't Bad" may be a fitting selection.
The Bison, who already reached their goal of a winning season weeks ago, scratched a second goal off their list on Friday evening, downing Punxsutawney in the District 9 Class AAA title game, 57-33. more...

Saturday, February 28, 2015
By Andy Stine Sports Writer
CANONSBURG - There were many positives for Progressland on the first day of the Southwest Class AA Regional wrestling tournament on Friday with 10 wrestlers making the trip to Canon-McMillan High School.
To no surprise, West Branch highlighted the day for the area, but it was for two different reasons.
Not only did Buzzy Maines make the semifinals for the second year in a row at the tournament, but so did Warrior 113-pounder Joey Couteret.
The Warrior junior toughed out a 4-2 win over Mount Pleasant's Alex Miscovich in the first round before the drama came in the quarterfinals.
Down 4-2 late in the third period against Chestnut Ridge's Dylan Williams, Couteret latched on to a single-leg and scored a takedown just before the buzzer sounded at the end of the period, forcing the match into overtime. more...
