Powerful sounds of classical music filled the hallways of the High School on Friday, April 12th as the Northern Tier Symphony Orchestra played to a crowd of nearly two hundred. Young, old and in-between musicians gathered together and treated the crowd to two hours of classical music under the direction of conductor, Robert Helmacy.

Hallstead Council Rescues Fire Co.

At Thursday night's Council meeting held on April 18th, the Hallstead Borough Council had a check for $10,000 made out to the Hallstead Fire Company. It seems the Fire Company is $50,000 in debt. So, Council agreed to take $10,000 out of the Hallstead Borough's Act 13 account and give it to the Fire Company. A Council member who is on the volunteer Fire Company told Council members that half of the calls the Fire Company responds to are in the Hallstead Borough. Council had a discussion about getting reimbursed from other towns when responding to calls in other areas. Townships such as Great Bend should be reimbursing the Fire Company for the calls they respond to.
