COALPORT - The utilities for the Coalport flood control project were relocated last year and Diehl Contracting is still waiting for payment for doing the work, so Coalport Borough council decided to take action.

Council met with Northwest Savings Bank and secured a loan of $84,045.96, which is half the cost of the project.
"We borrowed half of the amount in hopes of keeping peace with Diehl's," Council President Joe Nevling said. "We're hoping to get the funding we have coming for the project by the end of the year." more...

CLARION - The Clearfield boys basketball team returned to the PIAA playoffs on Monday evening for the first time since 2010 against District 8 champion Obama Academy in the play-in game, which was where the 2010 edition of the Bison were eliminated.
Although Clearfield hung tough with the Eagles for the first 28 minutes on Monday, it was the final four minutes that ultimately cost the Bison. Clearfield trailed 52-48 with 3:47 to go, but gave up an Eagle 14-4 run as it fell 66-52, at Clarion High School.
