CLARION - The Clarion Area Lady Bobcat volleyball team eliminated the Elk County Catholic Lady Crusaders from the District 9-A volleyball tournament Thursday night in a match played at the Clarion Area High School.
Clarion won the first set 25-21, took the second set 25-13 and the third set 25-19.
â€śWe played well at times in the first and third sets,â€ť said ECCHS coach Diane Gies. â€śWeâ€™re an inexperienced team playing well at this time of the year against a ranked opponent.
In an effort to prevent further thefts of road signs, Fox Township chose to install surveillance cameras at various intersections throughout the township.
The tactic has worked, as five people are currently awaiting their preliminary hearings, all of whom were caught stealing signs on July 15, 2011. The group includes a mixture of three adults and two juveniles.
"From January 1, 2011 to July 1, 2011, we had just under $2,200 worth of signs stolen," said Fox Twp. Supervisor and Public Works Director Randy Gradizzi.
A grassroots movement is taking place in Elk County and beyond. No, the campaign has nothing to do with occupying Wall Street, but rather aims to "bring the cow home." The cow being referred to is a 15-foot tall, fiberglass cow that stood for many years in front of the Ayrshire Dairy on the Old Kersey Road in Kersey. The cow, now in Reedsville, Pa., became a local landmark and roadside attraction. It was commonly used as a photo op for families and tourists who posed for pictures with it when visiting the dairy.
