Another bear got into R. Kyle Hannah’s sheep over Elk and Martin Sharp took the dogs over Friday and got a 210 pound male bear, just about the same place as the one last week. The dogs got up two bears, one got by the man on the stand, but Martin, who is the son of the late Oscar Sharp, well known bear hunter, took off after this one and soon had it. It was a short hunt. A heavy mast last fall brought a lot of bear in and the sheep are mighty tempting.
After a rain scare before noon, Saturday afternoon was a beautiful parade day. The entries were varied and interesting – we will have a list soon. Some made note of accomplishments, such as the first school forest of Green Bank High School, and the new Visitors Center on Cranberry; some carried out the clean-up theme – all showed a lot of work and interest by businesses and organizations. The week before showed a lot of cleaning, painting and fixing also. It is a worthwhile program.
The bands seemed unusually good. The Coca-Cola Bottling Company treated them to drinks afterwards.
