Kane Road Drive-In Theater in Hopewell Township torn down

The Kane Road Drive-In Theater in Hopewell Township was torn down yesterday. 87-year-old Steve Gray built the drive-in with his father back in 1953. They opened for business a year later. It remained one of the few drive-in theaters in the Pittsburgh area until 2013 when it stumbled on hard financial times and was forced to close. Gray tells Beaver County Radio it’s “bittersweet” because he’s left with 2,000 memories. A developer plans to build condominiums on the site.

Beaver County State Lawmaker Co-Sponsors Bill to Eliminate “Ghost Teaching”

Legislation designed to ensure that those hired to teach in public schools actually spend their time educating students rather than working exclusively for their union has been introduced in Harrisburg. House Bill 1649 would close a loophole that allows “Ghost Teaching” in the School District of Philadelphia, where teachers take extended leave from classroom duties to do union work, while still earning full pay and benefits. Bill cosponsor Rep. Jim Christiana (R-Beaver) said that if Pennsylvania taxpayers are to be asked for more money to fund schools, the state should make sure that teachers are spending their time in the classroom and not in a union hall. Rep. Christiana will be a guest on Teleforum with Mike Romigh on Thursday’s show at 10:35 a.m.

Blackhawk Athletic Director Has Yet to Respond to Calls for Him To Return To Work; Thanks Fans for Support

Blackhawk School District Athletic Director Jack Fullen is not yet releasing any public comment regarding calls for him to return to work. Fullen was on administrative leave following an altercation with a school board member at last Friday night’s football game at Northwestern Football Stadium, where Blackhawk played West Allegheny. But during last night’s school board meeting, Fullen was reportedly re-instated by the school superintendent. But it’s still not clear if he did return to work today. But Fullen did contact Al Goehring this morning to say ‘thank you’ to all of his supporters who showed up at the meeting last night and for sticking by him. No word on whether or not he will attend the Montour game tonight.
