Summer may be over, but there are a few flavorful fruits and veggies that may get
you excited for the Fall season! Krystin Goodwin (@Krystingoodwin) has a few of the
best harvested produce to inspire you to get cooking this season!
D. Scott Paul is the newest member of the Kane School Board.
By a 7-1 vote Thursday, Paul was appointed to fill a vacancy created by the resignation of Gary Ziegler.
Claire Ann Depto Buckley, president of the school board, supported Paul for the appointment along with board members John Ball, Dick Coleman, Linda A. Anderson, Susan Grolemund, Krista Jamerson and Keith Hastings.
Board member Tom Kerek cast the lone negative vote. He said he favored the appointment of Shana Snyder, the only other candidate for the seat.
ERIE â€“Â A federal judge has ruled this week that Dr. Maryann Anderson is not liable for legal fees incurred by defendants in her lawsuit against three former colleagues in the Millcreek Township School District (MTSD) near Erie.
Anderson, who has been the superintendent of the Kane Area School District for over five years, in 2007 filed a federal "whistle-blower" lawsuit against three Millcreek school officials for allegedly retaliating against her. She claimed the retaliation came after she brought up cases of wrong-doings in the school district.
SMETHPORT â€“ A Kane man who wielded knives in an alleged "suicide-by-cop" attempt has been given two more weeks to enter a plea in McKean County Court.
Larry Walker II, 42, of 231 Janeway St., Kane, remains in the McKean County Jail in Smethport in lieu of $750,000 cash bail.Â
He appeared Thursday before McKean County Court President Judge John Pavlock, but did not enter a plea. Dennis Luttenauer, a Kane attorney who is representing Walker, asked to delay the last day to enter the plea until Oct. 23. The judge approved the request and Walker was returned to jail.
Northwest Savings Bank and the Kane Area Community Center will launch Operation Overcoat on Saturday, Oct. 11.Â
With public support, the sponsors will work together to collect and distribute warm winter coats to local children in need.
Residents of Kane are asked to participate in the program by donating warm, new or gently-used fall and winter coats in all childrenâ€™s sizes.
The Kane Wolves make the long trip to Curwensville tonight as they take on the Curwensville Golden Tide in a battle of 5-1 teams. The Wolves have played in two consecutive nail-biters, losing to Ridgway in week five 21-20 before rebounding last week and defeating Brockway 9-7 on a Dillon Mattis field goal with eight seconds left in the game. Like the Wolves, the Tide started out their season 4-0 but stumbled in the opening week of AML South competition by losing 20-13 to Elk County Catholic.
The Kane Lady Wolves had their biggest game offensively of the season but it wasnâ€™t enough as the Brockway Lady Rovers left Kane with a 6-4 win on Thursday afternoon in the Kane girlsâ€™ last home game of the season.
The Kane Lady Wolvesâ€™ volleyball team hosted the Elk County Catholic Lady Crusaders on Thursday evening in the Wolvesâ€™ Den. The Lady Crusaders won the contest in straight sets, 25-11, 25-21 and 25-13, to improve to 11-0 with the win. The young Lady Wolves dropped to 3-8 with the loss, but played well during the match.
The Kane boys and girls golf teams put the finishing touches on their season recently. The District 9 girlsâ€™ tournament was held Monday in Brookville, with sophomore Erin Paulson representing the Lady Wolves. Paulson shot a good round of 111 to finish in seventh place. Keystoneâ€™s Amber Hess shot a phenomenal round of 77 to finish as district champion with Brookvilleâ€™s Elaina Powell taking second place, carding a 91.
SMETHPORT â€“ McKean County's blight is increasing while the population is shrinking.
