MT. JEWETT â€“ The construction of the Visitors Center at the Kinzua Bridge State Park near Mt. Jewett is seen as a boost to the area economy.
"The local communities will benefit economically from the increased number of visitors as two of the favorite pastimes of visitors are eating and shopping," Linda Devlin said. She is the executive director of the Bradford-based Allegheny National Forest (ANF) Visitors Bureau.
"Visitors will be traveling into our communities for these services along with seeking overnight accommodations," Devlin said.
The borough of Kane is scrambling to find part-time police officers.
The Kane Police Department has four full-time policemen, including Chief Heath Boyer.
Since the department provides around-the-clock coverage seven days a week, part-time officers are needed to fill certain shifts. Part-time officers also fill in during vacations and sick leave.
The need for more part-time policemen in Kane is heightened now that full-time officer Catrina Retterer is restricted to light duty in advance of her maternity leave later this year.

MT. JEWETT â€“ The proposed sale of the Mt. Jewett sewage system to Aqua Pennsylvania-- a private company-- met with opposition Tuesday.
The criticism was presented at a meeting of the Mt. Jewett Regional Sewer Authority, a six-member volunteer board.
"I can't see selling it if we don't need to," Gene Ginkel told the authority. "It's an asset to Mt. Jewett, an asset that isn't hurting you."
Ginkel is a former Mt. Jewett councilman.
Gary Geer, a Mt. Jewett contractor, said "I feel more comfortable" in not selling the borough sewer system. "I don't think it's a good idea" to sell the system.
The Kane Softball team was winless last season but put that losing steak behind them with a win over Sheffield in their season opener on Tuesday afternoon.
