Despite the recent passage by Pennsylvania House and Senate leaders of a major transportation spending proposal for the state, in the immediate aftermath local planning officials are still feeling the squeeze.
The U.S. Army marched into St. Marys Area High School on Wednesday afternoon as they officially honored seniors Catherine Riddle and Jaime Whitaker as being selected as part of the
2014 U.S. Army All-American Marching Band.
They are among only 10 students chosen from Pennsylvania.
With this selection, Riddle and Whitaker join the ranks of an elite group of only 125 musicians and color guard members from across the country who will showcase their talent during a halftime performance at the nationally broadcast U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio on Saturday, Jan. 4, 2014.
Drivers entering and leaving St. Marys on the Million Dollar Highway may notice a new billboard that expresses a strong opinion on an issue that often raises strong emotions.
The billboard that reads, â€śGod is pro-life,â€ť and, â€śChoose to give your baby life,â€ť has been placed by Elk County Right to Life with donations from the Knights of Columbus and the efforts of various community members.
Members of Elk County Right to Life and the Knights of Columbus gathered at the home of Viola Geci on Wednesday afternoon to celebrate the placement of the new sign.
