On the lam - This flock of turkeys is trying to escape the elusive hatchet for Thanksgiving. For some reason, turkeys like to hang out in the Spike Island area of Rush Township, perhaps they figure it is safe for them there.

Commissioners: No tax increase
Wednesday, November 26, 2014
By Jeff Corcino Staff Writer
The Clearfield County Commissioners approved its tentative 2015 budget that holds the line on taxes at its meeting yesterday.
The tentative budget keeps the county's real estate taxes at 18.5 mills. This means a resident with a home worth $100,000 would pay $462.50 in real estate taxes to the county.
The budget calls for $30,951,390 in expenditures, but to balance the budget the county is planning to use $259,726 in reserves because of a shortfall in revenue.
At the end of 2013, the county had roughly $4.95 million in reserves, according to Commissioner Mark McCracken.
Commissioner John Sobel called the budget a "work-in-progress" and said it could change before the commissioners approve the final budget next month. more...

CURWENSVILLE - The Curwensville wrestling team has a new varsity head coach entering the 2014-15 season, but the Golden Tide are certainly familiar with him.
Dean Swatsworth, who wrestled for Curwensville in the early 2000s, has been serving as the junior high coach for three years and is also a teacher at the elementary school, so he is very familiar with the kids and they with him.
Swatsworth said he is excited about the opportunity to head the varsity program. more...

Short bench has Lady Mounties changing their offensive strategy
Wednesday, November 26, 2014
By Jon Christoff Sports Writer
PHILIPSBURG - It's no secret that Philipsburg-Osceola girls basketball coach Doug Myers likes to run an up-tempo style when his team takes the court.
Myers' squad will have a bit of a different look this season, though, as the Lady Mounties' roster consists of just 10 players entering the 2014-15 campaign.
What P-O does have in its favor is the return of four letterwinners, including a pair of Progressland all-stars in Abby Showers and Haylee Hayward, to help usher in a youthful core. more...
