According to Kane-based state police, the collision occurred when 70 yar old Joe Brown of Eldred who was traveling north of Route 155 turned left to travel south onto Route 446 and allowed his Dodge Ram pick up to strike a Dodge Dakota driven by Virginia Studer of Austin which was traveling south on Route 446. Both drivers escaped injury as did three other children in Brown’s truck but one passenger was taken to Charles Cole Hospital for treatment.

Area fire departments and state Bureau of Forestry fire crews have contained two fires that scorched nearly 900 acres of the Tioga State Forest in Tioga County.

Investigation is continuing into the cause of both, which started over the weekend, he said. Meanwhile a small crew from the Germania Fire Department doused a wildfire on the Tow Road in West Branch Township Thursday afternoon, just after 3:00 pm

Charles Cole Memorial Hospital has established a Swine Flu informational hotline. The prerecorded message can be heard by calling 814/260-5279. As the status of this situation changes, the message will be updated as needed. Due to the recent confirmed cases of Swine Influenza A (swH1N1) in Mexico and the United States, CCMH will continue its efforts to protect patients and staff. While CCMH has been preparing for the potential of an avian flu pandemic for quite some time, the hospital is following recommendations from local emergency management officials, the Center for Disease Control and World Health Organization. "We want the public to know that, if the swine flu affects our local community, Charles Cole will be prepared," said Lonnie Bunch, CCMH safety officer. ymptoms of swine flu are similar to the seasonal flu and include fever, lethargy, lack of appetite, and coughing. While there is currently no vaccine available, the swine flu can be treated with certain antiviral drugs. Call your medical provider if you think you have the flu.
