When given the opportunity to make a statement, Weidow replied, "No thank you, your honor." He also declined the opportunity to offer an apology."You are found by this court to be a danger to the community," President Judge Richard A. Masson said, citing three previous accidents on Weidow's driving record as well as a speeding violation that occurred after the current charges were filed.Ridgway, PAJim MeyerWeidow sentenced 4-9 years in fatal DUI crashRidgway No plans for skatepark2015-03-05T23:21:06-05:002015-03-05T23:21:06-05:00Copyright 2015 Ridgway RecordRidgway Borough Manager Kim Zimmerman made the statement after several members of the public attended Thursday's meeting to get the facts about the future of the skatepark.Ridgway, PARichie LeckerCouncil: No plans for skateparkRidgway sentenced 5-10 years in child porn case2015-03-05T23:19:54-05:002015-03-05T23:19:54-05:00Copyright 2015 Ridgway Record"I understand that you had no direct physical contact with any children," President Judge Richard A.

These groups have been chosen because of the way changes in Elk County communities have affected both groups. "Today, compared to a generation ago, fewer and fewer meaningful jobs are available for young people and the growing senior population no longer has the family support system it once enjoyed," said William Conrad, Stackpole-Hall executive director. Past planning studies have relied upon the insight and feedback supplied by independent community leaders and public focus groups.Ridgway, PAAmy CherryPublic input sought on future projects targeting youth, seniorsRidgway Water plant found to need significant upgrades2015-03-04T23:59:52-05:002015-03-04T23:59:52-05:00Copyright 2015 Ridgway RecordFox Township supervisors unanimously approved authorization to conduct the study during their Wednesday evening meeting.
