The Kane Wolves improved to 11-0 but more importantly earned a spot in next weekendâs District 9 AA finals with a hard fought 26-12 win over Brookville on Friday. Playing on a sloppy field at Kaneâs Paul R Miller Stadium, the Wolves put together a workman like effort to defeat the Raiders, who entered the game with a 6-4 record.
The Wolvesâ defense started out hot, forcing the Raiders to punt after three plays, including a tackle for a loss on second down by Evan DeLong on District 9âs second leading rusher Zach Vroman.
LUDLOW â Despite frigid temperatures and snow in the air, ground was broken Friday for the Hamilton Township Veterans Memorial.
It was a fitting time for the ceremony because Veterans' Day will be observed Monday.
Election Day this week was a big event for John Ball of Kane, who won election to a seat on the Kane School Board.
But Ball could not celebrate his victory in Kane because he was in New Jersey for the funeral of his father.
Audrey Fay Payne Moore, 78, of 1075 West Warren Rd., died Thursday, Nov. 7, 2013 at her residence surrounded by her loving husband, daughter and pets.
Born April 18, 1935, in Kane, she was a daughter of the late Clyde and Ima (Confer) Payne.
On April 21, 1967, in Warren, she married James B. Moore who survives.
Mrs. Moore was a 1954 graduate of Bradford High School. She had been employed as an expediter at McCourt Label for several years.
Audrey was a very special person to all who knew and loved her. She will be missed tremendously.
A look at unofficial results of Tuesdayâs election shows that the âBand of 4â won most of the 10 precincts in the race for four seats on the Kane School Board.
The unofficial winners for four seats on the school board include Susan Grolemund, Claire Ann Depto and Linda A. Andersonâall write-in candidatesâand their endorsed ballot nomineeâJohn Ball.
The 10-0 Kane Wolves host the 6-4 Brookville Raiders on Friday night in a District 9 AA semifinal game. The records mean little, however, as the two teams have no common opponents in 2013. The winner of the game advances to next weekâs district finals, while the loserâs season comes to a close.
QUEHANNA âÂ Standing in the parking lot at the Pennsylvania Game Commission's elk check station in Quehanna on Monday afternoon, the words on Muncy resident Jeff Trought's Duck Dynasty-themed T-shirt perfectly described how he was feeling: "Happy, happy, happy."
Hunting in Elk Hunt Zone 4, the majority of which is located in Cameron County, and guided by Cody Ball of Hicks Run Outfitters, Trought had harvested an impressive looking 8x8 bull elk earlier that morning.
SMETHPORT â There were tense moments Wednesday morning after a call to the 911 center reported a bomb had been planted in the McKean County Courthouse in Smethport.
In a fitting tribute honoring fallen firefighter Blaine E. "Skeeter" Wildnauer, Jr., of Kersey, a solemn procession was held Wednesday morning which included dozens of fire departments from four counties.
Wildnauer, 58, died Saturday morning in the line of duty while responding to a traffic crash on the Old Kersey Road. A lifelong resident of the area, Wildnauer dedicated 40 years of service to the Fox Township Volunteer Fire Department.
Kaneâs First United Methodist Church will host their annual Tribute to Veterans on Sunday, Nov. 10 at 11 a.m.
Sundayâs program is entitled, âOur Heroes and the Pride of Americaâ and will have an added focus on veterans from the Korean Conflict. According to long-time event coordinator Colleen Lundeen, the tribute will honor all veterans, families of current servicemen and women and the families of those who have lost their lives while in the service of our country.
