December 23, 2010

The refurbishment of the St. Leo Catholic Church began earlier this month and is off to a good start, according to Father Brian Vossler.
“The progress for our refurbishing has gone very well so far,” Vossler said. “At first, we got off to a slow start because we were waiting for a company from North Carolina to come and pick up our pews.

The $900 check was presented by VFW 5887 Post Commander Ricky Hicks to Elk County Sheriff Jeffrey Krieg and deputies Patrick Straub and William Gerg Jr.
“It is a less-than-lethal weapon that we like to use for trouble in a courtroom and things like that,” said Krieg. “By using it, we don't incur the liability like you do when you have to shoot somebody.
