RIDGWAY â€“ The Elk County Boulder Dash, a 20-mile run, walk or hike event is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 9 at 8 a.m. starting at the firemen's carnival grounds along North Broad Street in downtown Ridgway.
The event takes place on 20 miles of State Game Lands 44, just south of Ridgway, featuring about 4,000 feet of vertical rise over the course. The deadline to register online at www.elkcountyboulderdash.com is Friday, Aug. 1.
Among the latest personnel changes approved by the St. Marys Area School District Board of Directors are new hires, awarding of numerous supplemental contracts, transfer of support personnel, resignations, and leaves of absences.
School board member Bert Sorg cast an opposing vote for approval of the June personnel stating he "felt some of them could've been handled differently."
All employment recommendations are provisional for 30 days pending receipt of Act 151 and Act 34 clearance documentation and pre-employment drug testing if applicable.
Over the past few months, the Elk County Catholic Crusader baseball team has racked up an impressive 26-0 record and has one final game remaining in their seasonâ€“the PIAA Class A State Championship on Friday afternoon.
Though only nine players can be out on the field at any given time, reaching this point and maintaining a perfect record has taken the effort of all 20 of the players on the Crusaders' roster.
