Bradford uses defense to shut down Chucks, end Punxsy's season

February 24, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Once Bradford switched to the triangle-and-two defense during Thursday night's District IX Class AAA Boys' Basketball Playoff Semifinal, the complexion of the game completely changed.

Defense put the Owls (7-16) in position to win their ninth district title in 11 years with a 41-38 overtime victory over Punxsutawney.

Top-seeded St. Marys beat Clearfield in the other semifinal, 50-23, and will meet Bradford in the title game — most likely Saturday, March 5, at Clarion University.

Solid Waste Authority looks toward Clearfield County for a lifeline

February 24, 2011

BROOKVILLE — The Jefferson County Solid Waste Authority has looked toward the state legislature for solutions to funding issues for the past several years. Now, it appears a different answer may be playing out in Clearfield County.

The authority has been losing funds since an administration fee was removed following a court case. This year, the authority needed more than $20,000 from reserve accounts to balance the operating budget. Each year, the authority asks the state to renew the administration fee, but no action has been taken.

Commission addresses concerns about tax notices

February 24, 2011

BROOKVILLE — The Jefferson County Commissioners Tuesday addressed changes to tax notices this year.

Commission Chairman Paul Corbin said changes to the tax notice have caused some confusion among residents.

“The envelopes say, very noticeably, ‘Important tax information enclosed,’” Corbin said, adding that two tax notices will be sent out, one for property tax and one for occupational tax.
