Edward A. "Sonny" Seelye Jr., 79, of Elk Haven Nursing Home, St. Marys, and formerly of 1044 S. Michael Road, died on Sunday, October 23, 2011 at Elk Haven Nursing Home following a brief illness.
He was born August 4, 1932 in St. Marys, a son of the late Edward and Mary Ann Caskey Seelye.
Ruthanne Glatt Herzing, a St. Marys native who moved to Harrisburg in 1996, has created a Facebook page called "If you grew up in St. Marys, Pa., you remember..." The page is intended to offer other area natives a chance to share their memories, experiences and reconnect people not only with each other, but also with their childhood memories.
Herzing started the page after being introduced to the idea by friends of hers who were fans of their own hometown pages. She decided to create a page catering to both former and current residents of St. Marys and Elk County.
A complaint initiated by a resident regarding a neighbor's outdoor furnace was the impetus for disagreement between residents and supervisors, as well as a heated debate, which ensued at Thursday night's meeting of the Jay Township Board of Supervisors.
Resident Sid Delansky said that constant emissions from his neighbor Howie Barnett's chimney are a nuisance and have exacerbated his pre-existing health issues.
Fox Township Supervisors answered visitors' inquiries and addressed business items at their most recent meeting.
Rose Ranno was one of the visitors in attendance at the meeting. Last month she expressed concern about vehicles speeding along a portion of SR 948 near her home located near Main Street in Kersey, as well as about how alleyways are classified within the township.
Ranno suggested the speed limit be lowered, as it is currently posted as 35 miles per hour in that area on SR 948.
