Outdoor furnaces subject of heated debate at Jay Twp.

December 18, 2011

At Thursday's meeting of the Jay Township Board of Supervisors, an ongoing dispute between neighbors again brought the issue of outdoor furnaces as a public nuisance to the forefront.
Sid and Eileen Dolansky have for months been after the board to intervene on their behalf and stop neighbor Howie Barnett from what they claim is constant burning of his outdoor furnace. They cited adverse effects, including health problems and air pollution, as well as diminished property values.

Train station under restoration to bring back its original luster

December 18, 2011

Dennis D. Heindl and the Ridgway community are collaborating to restore the historic train station located along North Broad Street in Ridgway.
According to William Gentilman, Property Manager for the Buffalo & Pittsburgh Railroad, Inc., the building was built the year 1907.
“The station was built the last year the Philadelphia & Erie Railroad was in existence,” said Gentilman. “The line the station is on was a part of the Pennsylvania Railroad section that ran from Erie to St. Marys, and the track is still there.”
The restoration of the building has been nearly 20 years in the making.
