It wasnâ€™t that long ago that Kane native Trisha Wright was fulfilling a dream as the first athletic trainer in the Kane Area School District.
â€śI got paid to watch sports and help kids when they were hurt,â€ť Wright said. â€śI loved it.â€ť
She sometimes dealt with serious injuries such as concussions and broken bones.
Most often, Wright was just another spectator at school athletic events.
â€śYou hope youâ€™re not busy,â€ť she said.
A 1994 graduate of Kane High School, Wright served as the school district athletic trainer for 12 1/2 years between 1998 and 2010.Â
MT. JEWETT â€“ The borough of Mt. Jewett has issued another notice that urges residents to boil their water before using.

The current "boil water" notice went out after several customers were without water Tuesday due to a leak in a water line at a residence.Â

It was a tale of two halves on Wednesday night in the Wolvesâ€™ Den. The Kane Lady Wolvesâ€™ basketball team hosted the Ridgway Lady Elkers and saw the visitors jump out to a 14-10 halftime lead. Coach Dave Kiehlâ€™s Lady Wolves have struggled in the third quarter several times this season but came out of the locker room and put 16 points up on the scoreboard while holding Ridgway to two after the break. The hosts went on to post a 43-25 victory.
