Kane sewer board considers replacement of line

May 22, 2012

Unplugging the same clogged sewer line has become a twice-a-week routine for the Kane borough Streets Department.
Now the Kane Borough Sewer Authority is considering the replacement of a section of this line that serves the Kane Community Hospital and other customers.
Mike Beane, foreman of the Streets Department, gave a report Monday at the authority meeting at the borough building. He said between 180 feet and 200 feet of the line on Park Avenue Extension needs to be replaced. He said at least 40 feet of the eight-inch tile pipe is “packed with roots” from nearby trees.

Kane girls track team takes 3rd at District meet

May 20, 2012

BROOKVILLE – The girls track team traditionally has a quality showing and finishes in the top five teams at districts each year, and this year placing third was fantastic for us considering that we only had two seniors participating at the meet. Brookville is unbeatable as a team and Elk County Catholic is always one of the class teams of our area so I was extremely pleased with our team score. The meet for us was marked by big personal best performances and that is exactly how it should be with proper training and motivated, dedicated and talented athletes.

Kane boys track team earns D9 crown

May 20, 2012

BROOKVILLE – On a beautiful evening for track and field at Brookville, the Kane Boys Track team put it all together and came up with a hard fought, well deserved team title, scoring 55 team points. 
The lead in this meet must have changed hands a dozen times as Elk County Catholic, Port Allegany, Clarion, Cranberry, Sheffield and North Clarion, and Kane kept putting points on the board as event after event was contested. Towards the end of the meet the 3200-meter run, the 200 dash, the pole vault and the 1600 relay results were still coming in.

“I inherited his job,” Wensel joked as she reflected on a 28-year teaching career that will end in the three weeks with her retirement.

Kane Lady Wolves pick up big win over Brockway

May 16, 2012

On a beautiful day for a ball game the Kane Lady Wolves softball team put together maybe their best game of the year as they knocked off Brockway 10-9 in a 7-inning thriller.
In the first two innings, both pitchers seemed to have the batters off balance as Kane's Kyla Hoag had four strikeouts while Brockway's pitcher recorded five. Brockway was able to take an early one run lead in the top of the first. The Lady Rovers' second hitter got a single then stole second and went to third on a wild pitch. She scored the game's first run as the next batter got a sacrifice fly.

Kane council gambles on another mild winter

May 16, 2012

The Kane Borough Council is looking ahead to another mild winter.
Instead of buying 1,000 tons of anti-skid material to spread on icy borough streets in the winter, council voted 5-1 Monday to seek new bids for just 500 tons of the tiny pebbles.
Council is gambling that the 500 tons—plus the stone left over from this year—will be sufficient for road maintenance next winter.
