Pending burn ordinance a hot issue at latest Big Run Council meeting

Nick Lantz, Big Run Council president, said the borough can't enforce any kind of illegal burning without a burning ordinance in place.

Tagliaferre’s trek: Cruising cross country for a cause

September 17, 2012

Tuesday, June 26, Jeremy Tagliaferre — a Reynoldsville native who currently resides in Falmouth, Massachusetts — set out on a journey that many would never dream of completing: a cross country trek.

A cross country trip by any means of transportation is intimidating enough, as a trip in even the most comfortable car would certainly leave any individual with some aches and pains, but Tagliaferre’s journey followed a less traditional mode: bicycle.

Tagliaferre said the idea for this particular trip was inspired by another he took in 2007 when he hiked the Appalachian Trail.
