Clearfield Borough ... Overnight parking hours will be changed
Friday, August 22, 2014
By Jeff Corcino Staff Writer
The Clearfield Borough Council voted to temporarily change the overnight parking hours in the downtown business district to accommodate businesses with early morning operating hours at its meeting last night.
Council voted to temporarily change the no parking signs in the downtown business district from no parking from 3-8 a.m. to no parking from 2-5 a.m. starting Sept. 1 through Dec. 31.
The change was brought about because the YMCA requested the no parking signs be removed on Second Street between Market and Pine streets so its patrons who come to the YMCA when it opens at 5 a.m. would have a place to park.
However, the public safety committee more...

West Branch hungry for success
Friday, August 22, 2014
By Jaclyn Yingling Sports Editor
ALLPORT - After finishing the year with a 34-2 mark, it's hard to believe that the West Branch volleyball team was unsatisfied with what they accomplished.
The Lady Warriors won their fifth Inter-County Conference title in six years and reached the District 6 playoffs.
But an early exit has the team striving for more, and head coach Terry Trude thinks they have the talent to do that.
"This group has a lot of potential, and we are going to set pretty high expectations," he said. We don't want to be average, we want to be there at the top.
"The girls got mad when they weren't ICC champs. Obviously, that's a goal for us every year. It just seems like each year, more...

P-O looking for third straight D-6 championship
Friday, August 22, 2014
By Jon Christoff Sports Writer
PHILIPSBURG - The road to the District 6 Class AA boys soccer championship has gone through Philipsburg the last two years.
After winning the second title with a relatively youthful squad, there's no reason to believe that Philipsburg-Osceola's reign atop D-6 will be coming to an end in the near future.
The Mounties return seven letterwinners to this season's team, which head coach Shawn Inlow believes has the ability to make some noise in the state tournament.
While the talent and experience is there for P-O to make another run more...
