STATE COLLEGE â€“Â It's been a tough week for Penn State fans, and an even harder week for the students currently attending PSU's Main Campus in State College. With a national scandal unfolding around their university, these students have faced the challenge of staying focused on their studies while trying to make sense of the events that occurred throughout the week.
Several students from the St. Marys area are currently enrolled at the school, and a few were willing to share their views of what the atmosphere has been like on campus.
Donations of new sweaters, hats and mittens are being collected for the Mister Rogers' Neighborhood Sweater Drive taking place in the area from Nov. 16 to Dec. 9.
As part of the event, hosted by Dickinson Center, Inc.'s Children's Prevention Services, numerous donation boxes have been placed throughout St. Marys. Locations include Giant Eagle, Marienstadt Center, Apollo Theatre, Mountain Laurel Federal Credit Union, St. Marys Public Library and the Boys and Girls Club, as well as Dickinson Center at 110 Lincoln St. in Ridgway.
City Council approved to reject all snow removal bids during their Monday evening worksession. The bids were for work on the parking garage and four city parking lots located on Depot, Brusselles, Market and N. St. Marys streets.
Bids submitted were from Denny Anders Excavating in the amount of $58,600, Krug Contracting totaling $138,200 and Kevin Auman Land Improvement Services totaling $416,000.
At Thursday's workshop of the St. Marys Area School District Board, Superintendent Ann Kearney in written comments congratulated SMAHS students Adair Gennocro, who took third place in the PIAA Cross Country Finals' 5K race; and Liz Dollinger, who was accepted into the U.S. Marine Corps Band. Dollinger will now be headed for basic training at Parris Island, S.C. Kearney said that this marks the first time a St. Marys student has been a part of the band.
