Kane native opens new laundry in his hometown

February 20, 2012

Kane native Mike Myers no longer lives here, but he is connected to his hometown vicariously through customers at his new local laundromat.
Myers sells commercial laundry equipment in western Pennsylvania, northern West Virginia and eastern Ohio.
Seeing Kane go a year without a laundromat of its own, Myers stepped forward to open the Fresh-N-Go Express Laundry at 397 N. Fraley St. adjacent to the Dollar General store. A former laundromat at the same site has been closed for about a year, Myers said.

Driver hurt as log truck hits, destroys house

Like a 40-ton missile, a fully-loaded log truck careened out-of-control Saturday morning and sliced into a wood-frame house on Route 66 in the Ten Commandments area just south of Kane.
Miraculously, the truck driver and four people inside the house were not seriously injured.
The truck driver—Thomas L. Jashurek, 39, of Kane—was taken from the scene by Emergycare ambulance and immediately placed on a medical helicopter at the landing pad at Kane Community Hospital.
