JACKSON, N.J. â Over the weekend the Kane Wolves traveled to Jackson, N.J. to compete in the Six Flags Wild Safari Invitational on Saturday.
The course wound around the safari park located outside Six Flags Wild Adventure Park. The flat terrain made for fast times as six boys competitors broke the previous course record, while the girlsâ course record also fell.
JOHNSONBURG - A Highland Township supervisor charged with environmental violations had his preliminary hearing in District Court 59-3-02 continued Wednesday as he has yet to obtain legal representation.
Charges were filed by the Attorney General's Office last week with District Judge George A. "Tony" King against Charles M. Vaughn Jr., 75, who currently serves as chairman of the Highland Township Board of Supervisors and who up until recently served as the state-certified operator of the township's sewage plant in James City.
âBe Preparedâ is the motto of the Boys Scouts.
This phrase also aptly applies to Kane Community Hospital.
When Kane was faced with the largest evacuation in McKean County history five weeks ago, the local hospital ramped up its disaster plan.
âWe have a process to follow for disasters,â Gary Rhodes, the chief executive officer (CEO) at the hospital, said Wednesday. âWeâre always prepared.â
The Kane Lady Wolvesâ volleyball team made short work of the visiting Brookville Raiders on Tuesday night in the Wolvesâ Den. Kane head coach Judy Kesslerâs team won in straight sets, 25-10, 25-18 and 25-9 to make an early night of it.
The Lady Wolves jumped out to a 9-3 lead behind kills from seniors Kaila Jamerson and Audrey Perry and aces from Nikki Sicher and Shannon Kocjancic. The home teamâs hitters began to turn it up a notch with kills by Morgan Nicholson and Sicher, along with two back row kills from Perry to close out the game.
The Kane Middle School girlsâ seventh- and eighth-grade basketball teams both won their games Monday afternoon in Sheffield. The seventh-grade team held on for a big win against the Wolverines, 27-22.
JAMES CITY â Prizes have been announced in the Car Show held recently in James City.
Marsha Buhl, president of the Highland Township Recreation Association, has announced the prizes. The association sponsored the Car Show.
According to Buhl, the prizes include:
Historically low interest rates have led many municipalities and schools to refinance their debt to save money.
But the same low interest rates also are cutting earnings on money set aside in "rainy day" reserve funds.
This is the case in Wetmore Township.
Acting at a meeting Tuesday, the Wetmore Township Board of Supervisors agreed to renew a $200,000 certificate of deposit (CD) with Hamlin Bank and Trust of Kane.
The interest to be paid over the next year is only 0.9 percent-- less than 1 percent. The township in the past year received 1.5 percent interest on the same CD.
MT. JEWETT â Proposals are being sought to refinance debt for the Mt. Jewett water department.
Uni-Tec of State College, the consulting engineering firm for the borough, has asked seven banks to submit proposals by Friday. The engineers will make a âformal recommendationâ at a meeting of Mt. Jewett Borough Council on Nov. 5.
Uni-Tec is asking for two separate proposals from each bank, including Hamlin Bank and Trust, CNB and Northwest Savings Bank.
One proposal calls for refinancing water department debt of $484,256.69.

BROOKVILLE âÂ For the second year in a row, Elk County Catholic High School's Kristy Hanes finished in the runner-up spot among the Class AA golfers in the District 9 Girls' Golf Championship, three strokes behind the leader.
The scenario was unfortunately a familiar one for Hanes, who tied for second last year with Union's Larissa Roberts while coming in three strokes behind Redbank Valley's Samantha Dinger.
In this year's event, which was held at Pinecrest Country Club in Brookville, Hanes carded an 88 on the day, while Keystone's Amber Hess shot an 85 to take the title.
