If all goes as planned, a waste recycling program could be underway at the Kane High School by mid-January.
Recycling also could begin later this school year at the Kane Middle School and the Kane Elementary School.
The school board's Finance/Operations Committee endorsed a recommendation Monday to initiate recycling at no cost to the district.
Linda A. Anderson, the chairman of the committee, agreed with the recommendation along with committee members John Ball, Krista Jamerson and Tom Kerek.
HAZEL HURST â Hamlin Township still is waiting for a PNC loan to pay its fee for connecting the Lantz Corners Sewer District to the Mt. Jewett sewage treatment system.
Jim Trussell, chairman of the Hamlin Township Board of Supervisors, said Monday that the loan should be in hand "by the end of next week."
Under a decade-old agreement, the township agreed to pay $104,000 to the Mt. Jewett Regional Sewer Authority as a "capacity fee" before making connections.
It appears the Kane School Board will again agree to hold a possible 2015 property tax hike under the state-set index for the school district.
The board's Finance/Operations Committee voted 4-0 Monday to recommend keeping any tax hike next year beneath the index of 2.9 percent.
Linda A. Anderson (chairman) favored the recommendation along with committee members Krista Jamerson, John Ball and Tom Kerek.Â
The recommendation will go to the full nine-member school board for consideration at the Dec. 4 meeting.
CLARION â Evan DeLong of Kane was considered one of the elite wrestlers in the state last year as he compiled an impressive 36-0 record en route to a state championship.
Now a freshman at Clarion University, DeLong is finding that college wrestling is âmuch more intenseâ and takes âa bigger commitmentâ to win.
DeLong admitted that some of his opponents last year in high school presented âeasy matchesâ for the talented matman.
Itâs a far different story as he begins his college career as the starter at 157 pounds for the Golden Eagles.
