Jewett thanks to a 7-0 council vote that caused Steve Hale to lose his medical benefits in December 2014, Hale is now the chief deputy of the Elk County Sheriff’s Department. He replaces current Sheriff Theresa Merrit, who filled the dual role for seven to eight months.“Since [former Elk County Sheriff] Jeff Krieg retired in November of last year, I’ve actually been filling both positions as chief deputy and acting sheriff, and it’s a really cumbersome job,” Merritt said. “Steve did a really good job as lieutenant and has been able to help me out with the extra planning and taking things off my hands so I can take care of the actual sheriff’s job.”Ridgway, PAJoseph BellHale takes over as chief deputyRidgway budget to be put to a vote next week2015-06-03T00:31:51-04:002015-06-03T00:31:51-04:00Copyright 2015 Ridgway RecordSchool board treasurer Donna Sidelinger said Tuesday that the budget will be the same one that was presented before the board during the May meeting.Ridgway, PARichie LeckerRASD budget to be put to a vote next weekRidgway green-light road funds2015-06-03T00:30:11-04:002015-06-03T00:30:11-04:00Copyright 2015 Ridgway RecordRidgway, PAJoseph BellOfficials green-light road fundsRidgway For Life is 30 years strong2015-06-02T00:52:10-04:002015-06-02T00:52:10-04:00Copyright 2015 Ridgway RecordIt's about communities coming together to support each other and the work the American Cancer Society is doing to fight cancer.
