Last Friday afternoon saw the return of a much loved local landmark with the reappearance of the lifesize grizzly bear outside the Shadowbox Nursery along old Route 219 just outside of Ebensburg, PA. The bear, which has stood in front of the nursery for more than 2 decades, was damaged in an ice storm last winter and had to be removed because of damages. The bear was repaired over the last several months by nursery employee Dave Pundzak, a local artist.
