The St. Marys Area United Way kicked off its 2013-2014 fundraising campaign during local high school events on Thursday evening. Agency representatives were on hand at the St. Marys Area High School's Meet the Dutch night and Elk County Catholic School System's Family Picnic and Bonfire.
The new goal for this year's campaign is $180,000, a decrease from last year's goal of $195,000.
The Kane Area School Board Directors issued a statement Friday to "put to rest" the disciplinary issue involving high school teacher Jeff Gibbs.
"The process involved with personnel issues prevents the district from making specific comments. We have respected the process. Now that the issue is concluded, we are able to make a statement.
