RIDGWAY - A St. Marys man convicted of 189 counts of burglary and related charges stemming from a multitude of burglaries committed at camps throughout Elk, McKean, and Cameron counties was sentenced Monday in Elk County Court to serve no less than 11 years, 3 months and no more than 30 years in state prison.
According to court documents filed on March 12, 2012, St. Marys Country Club President James R. Slay filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and the club closed on Aug. 31.
The voluntary petition was filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Western District of Pennsylvania, and listed Slay as the debtor. According to the petition, the club is a tax-exempt organization under the Internal Revenue Code and has both estimated assets and liabilities between $500,000 and $1 million.
Area business owner and entrepreneur Peggy Caruso wants to help others achieve their own business and personal goals, and has recently hung out her shingle as a life coach to assist area residents in forging that path.
Caruso said the idea of a life coach may be foreign in this neck of the woods, but was quick to explain that it is not therapy and many people who have already reached major milestones, such as top executives, use it to target what they want to do and where they want to go as they continue on their journey through life.
