St. Marys has a new mayor and a tight race in Fox Township ended with a six-vote margin at the conclusion of the Tuesday election.
Bob Howard, who was once the mayor of Ridgway, was successful Tuesday in his campaign for mayor of St. Marys. He earned 1,460 votes, good enough to top Lyle H. Garner who had 1,083 votes.
St. Marys' newest full-service salon, MJ Studios, recently opened its doors offering a myriad of services including hair cuts and color, pedicures, manicures, acrylic nails, gel polish, facials and waxing.
Salon co-owners Matthew Lawson and Kelly Dauberman operate the salon, which is located at 414 S. St. Marys St., next to South St. Marys Street Elementary School.
"I had worked so hard, I was ready to branch out on my own," Lawson said. "I felt like it was time."
QUEHANNA â€“Â When Randy Caldwell's friends first called him to tell him he had been drawn for a bull elk license in this year's weeklong elk hunt he thought they were playing a practical joke on him.
The Export native recalled that he was in disbelief at first after friends told him they saw in the paper that his name had been drawn.
"But when I got about 17 calls that day I figured they must have been right," he said. "It took me a week and a half to get the official word from the game commission."
