Kane hasn’t seen the last of below-zero temperatures

February 21, 2015

There’s a reason Kane is called the “Ice Box of Pennsylvania.”
It’s cold in the winter.
But a National Weather Service meteorologist said Friday that the prolonged string of “below-zero” temperatures is “ridiculous—even for Kane.”
“You’ve been exceptionally cold for this time of the year,” Craig Evanego said in trying to explain the seemingly endless bitter sub-zero temperatures in the Kane area over the past month or so. Evanego is a meteorologist with the National Weather Service office in State College. Kane is part of this office’s coverage area.

Adventures of a Wildlife Photographer – "Screech"

February 20, 2015

Owls still fascinate me wherever my camera may take me. I will never get tired of searching for these varied birds of prey. What’s amazing about owls is the fact that they live among us, but are seldom seen. The park right across from my house has quite an owl population that few people ever get to see.

Kane Chamber presents awards at annual banquet

February 20, 2015

Marilyn Blackmore devotes so much time to the annual Art in the Wilds that she "must dream about it."
This is a modest assessment made by Jennifer Macey, who nominated Blackmore as the annual Citizen-of-the-Year in Kane.
The Kane Chamber of Commerce selected Blackmore as its Citizen-of-Year, one of several awards presented Thursday at the Chamber's annual banquet at the Kane Fire Hall. More than 120 attended the fete.
The Chamber has selected a Citizen-of-the-Year since 1975.

"It's business as usual," Jim Greville said in discussing the fate of his popular electronics store at 101 Fraley St., Kane.
RadioShack, a 94-year-old electronics chain, filed for bankruptcy earlier this month and announced the closing of most of its 4,000 company-owned stores.

Lady Wolves ousted by Lady Bulldogs

CLARION – A second-quarter scoring drought would be too much to overcome as Kane lost 42-31 to Redbank Valley in the girls basketball Class AA quarterfinals Wednesday night at Clarion High School.
After staying with the Lady Bulldogs in the first quarter, the Lady Wolves were outscored 12-2 in the second quarter by Redbank Valley, the No. 2 seed in the District 9 bracket.
"We dug ourselves too much of a hole to get out of it by the end of the game," Kane coach Dave Kiehl said. "We were down 16, 17 and got it down within seven or eight there."'
