Fleming to perform with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra
Saturday, April 18, 2015
By Dianne Byers Staff Writer
CURWENSVILLE - Like many seniors, Michael Fleming is winding down his final few weeks of high school. The Curwensville Area High School 12th grade student is finishing up his educational requirements and looking ahead to graduation in June.
But unlike his peers, Fleming is also using this time to prepare for his future plans to work as a professional tuba player. As a step toward that journey, Fleming's musical abilities have been recognized through his recent selection to perform with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.
Fleming was chosen to play in the EQT Side-By-Side concert the evening of April 28 at Heinz Hall. more...

PennDOT details role in streetscape project
Saturday, April 18, 2015
Improving the appearance and functionality of a community is often the goal of a streetscape project and a variety of partners can be needed to bring that goal to fruition.
The Clearfield streetscape project that started last month came to life as a partnership between Clearfield Borough, the state Department of Transportation, and the Federal Highway Administration.
It is a Transportation Enhancement project made possible by federal and local funding, with oversight provided by PennDOT.
In order to complete the project, the existing trees had to be removed.
According to Clearfield Borough Manager Leslie Stott, the removed trees will be replaced with new ones.
"We had considerable public input before the project started," Stott said." The majority opinion was positive in regard to the tree replacement plan. more...

Stocked up for opening day - Area anglers hope to reel in one of these fish provided by the Chinklacamoose Alliance of Bikers Aimed Toward Education Chapter of Clearfield County. Volunteers dumped 450 brown trout into the West Branch of the Susquehanna River near Curwensville last Saturday. According to Pat Domico, Governors Advisory Council on Hunting, Fishing and Conservation, the group stocks trout about seven times a year through the Squirrel Tails for Trout Recycling for the Future program.

PHILIPSBURG - The Philipsburg-Osceola baseball team's first two games of the week left head coach Doug Sankey feeling more optimistic about his team, but it was still without a number in the win column.
The Mounties, which had a 1-run loss to Altoona on Monday and another by two runs to Clearfield on Tuesday, collected 24 hits in a doubleheader against Tyrone on Friday afternoon. The results were what P-O has waited for since the beginning of the season, as it swept the Eagles, 7-4 and 10-2, at the Don Womer Baseball Complex.
"We played really well against Altoona more...
