            The City of Clarion released the results of a survey. The survey revealed concerns about the cost of housing in Clarion. It also found that many felt Clarion was not progressive enough in the area of economic development. People were happy with public safety in town. 

            Area firemen from Clarion and several surrounding towns shaved their heads for a good cause. Dozens people went bald in honor of Rick Smith who was fighting brain cancer. The event earned over $18,000.
