For Dow, it's go big or go home

February 26, 2014

The Ridgway Chainsaw Carvers Rendezvous, and the chainsaw carving art form itself has evolved over the years.
Many of the carvers convening in downtown Ridgway were once humble beginners, creating mushrooms and bears from random logs. The mantra of late, however, seems to be "Go big or go home," as carvers continuously try to get better and better, and take on projects of seemingly epic proportions.
A prime example is Scott Dow, owner of Animalistic Chainsaw Carving Studio along U.S. Route 6 in Corry.

Dirt and gravel roads training approaching

February 26, 2014

During their regular meeting for the month of February, the Elk County Conservation District further discussed upcoming increases for the dirt and gravel roads portion of the state's recently-passed transportation bill.
The program has increased funding sevenfold with Pennsylvania municipalities set to receive $28 million in 2015 as opposed to the $4 million received in 2014.
The county received its allotted funding for fiscal year 2014 on Monday, with $25,000 in the pot for registered municipalities to use on dirt and gravel roads.
