Comments Off


CLARION COUNTY – A Clarion County dad now has doctor bills to contend with following a father-son outing gone terribly wrong.  It happened on a Monday trip to an abandoned strip mine in the Sandy Hollow area.  Forty-eight-year-old Gerald Best, of Sligo, had gone shooting with his son.  Police say the son handed Best a rifle to clear a jam.  Best placed the 22-caliber pistol he was shooting between his legs, and cleared the jam from the rifle.  But when he went to retrieve the pistol, it fired, hitting him in the right foot.
