Tool City emcee, Roe, has best seat in the house


MEADVILLE — Superlatives

The most takedowns of this year’s Tool City Tournament belonged to Boiling Springs’ sophomore Grant Bond, who racked up 16 on his way to the title at 120. Bond was an 8-2 winner over McDowell senior Paul Deitz in the final.

The fastest pin of this year’s event belonged to General McLane senior Alex Thayer, who flattened Warren junior Dan Henry in 12 seconds in their quarterfinal bout. Thayer went on to lose to runner-up Garrette Reinwald of Fort LeBoeuf in the semis, but bounced back to take third place, beating Howland’s Andrew Rolfe in a 10-2 major decision in the final consy.

Earning the title of most wins in the least amount of time was Greenville senior heavyweight Braden Gladysz. He notched four falls in the tournament in a total time of 10:48. He finished the event in fifth with a fall in 2:55 over McLane’s Ian Mallory in the fifth-place match.

And although it wasn’t announced, DuBois senior Landon Hanna spent the least amount of time on the mat on his way to a title. Along with an opening-round bye, Hanna had one pin in 30 seconds, a second fall in 1:22, and he recorded a 54-second pin over Reinwald in the final. In all, Hanna was in action for 2:46 while picking up his second Tool City trophy.

The latest proposed expansion plan for the Crawford County Courthouse potentially would eliminate the former Tarr Mansion on Diamond Park to make room for a county administrative building. Should the 1860 mansion be demolished?

Leave it alone because it’s historic.
Try to incorporate it into the proposed expansion.
It’s too far gone to save, but it’s memory may be preserved with an artifacts and photo display within the proposed courthouse complex.
