Flagpoles stolen from Ludlow cemetery are recovered

August 13, 2012

LUDLOW – Two memorial flagpoles—stolen earlier this month from the Gibbs Hill Cemetery near Ludlow—were recovered Monday morning.
The flagpoles were found among tall vegetation in a wooded area just across the road from the cemetery.
High weeds on an embankment along the road obscured vision of the site where the toppled flagpoles were located.
John Eckstrom, a laborer with the Hamilton Township road crew, spotted the shaft of one of the flagpoles Monday morning. He and Township Roadmaster “Dutch” Davidson were working on a project near the cemetery entrance.

Council says skate/bike ramps are closed for now

August 13, 2012

There are a lot unhappy youths in Kane today.
The Kane Borough Council declared Monday that the skate/bike ramps at Glenwood Park are still closed.
"No trespassing" signs remain posted at the wooden structure even though most of the ramps have been repaired-- by the users themselves with volunteer adult assistance.
Speaking at a nearly three-hour meeting, Council President Howard Kane said "all of the repairs aren't done yet."
Until the work is completed and inspected, the ramped-facility is considered "uninsurable," it was pointed out.

County authority may erect apartments at fire site

August 13, 2012

The removal of one of the worst eyesores in Kane may be on the horizon.
The McKean County Housing and Redevelopment Authority may take ownership and raze the deteriorating fire-damaged Knights of Columbus (K of C) building on Chase Street near Bayard Street.
The authority may erect apartments on the site.
Part of the proposal also calls for the borough to give the authority the adjacent site that once housed Papa Nick's Restaurant. The borough demolished the restaurant, which also was heavily damaged in the same fire several years ago.
