BIG RUN â€” Several residents of Big Run Borough shared their concerns regarding the lack of a burn ordinance in the borough at Monday's council meeting.
"We are aware as to why the majority of people are here, due to the burning problem throughout the borough," said Joe Buterbaugh, mayor of Big Run Borough.
Nick Lantz, Big Run Council president, said the borough can't enforce any kind of illegal burning without a burning ordinance in place.
Tuesday, June 26, Jeremy Tagliaferre â€” a Reynoldsville native who currently resides in Falmouth, Massachusetts â€”Â 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 Tagliaferreâ€™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.
Nora B. (Lake) Barclay, 93, of Chalk, Hill, Pa., a great lady, went home to be with her Lord and Savior.
She served others rather than herself.
Nora was born June 11, 1919, in Elliottsville, Pa., a daughter of Walter Lake and Sarah (Stanton) Lake.
She was a member of the Chalk Hill Methodist Church.
