New police chief in town

By Rebecca Zemencik, Managing Editor •

VALLEY VIEW – If one asks what’s new in Hegins Township? The answer this month would be a new police chief and two new ordinances.
During its meeting Wednesday, Nov. 3, the supervisors unanimously approved appointing Sgt. Beau Yarmush as the new police chief and also adopted a driveway ordinance and animal control ordinance.
At the start of the regular meeting, before any other business was conducted the supervisors held public comment concerning the proposed ordinances. One question came up regarding stray cats and Solicitor Donald Karpowich said the ordinance addresses that matter.

Line Mountain wins District IV field hockey crown

Larry Deklinski/For The Citizen-Standard Line Mountain field hockey head coach Ashtin Klinger and team members charge the field after winning the PIAA District 4 Class A title against Bloomsburg Thursday on a penalty corner by Sierra Bobb at the end of overtime.

ALMEDIA — Sixth-seeded Line Mountain’s improbable run to its first field hockey district championship since 2000 culminated in a most improbable way Thursday.
Sierra Bobb scored a goal off a penalty corner with no time left on the clock at the end of the first overtime period to give the Eagles a 2-1 win over top-seeded Bloomsburg, but the win was even more improbable than that goal suggests.
Bloomsburg outshot the Eagles, 16-7, and had an 11-3 edge in penalty corners, including 8-0 in the second half. In addition, things looked very dark when Bloomsburg’s Lauren Brouse finally broke a scoreless tie with just 7:36 remaining in the game.
