Almon G. FREEMAN, 97, of Fox Hill, Ulysses, PA


Almon G. FREEMAN, 97, of Fox Hill, Ulysses, PA, passed away Friday, May 18, 2018 in UPMC Cole, Coudersport, PA. Born March 16, 1921, at home on Fox Hill, Ulysses, he was the son of Charles and Matie E. Carpenter Freeman. He attended the country school on Fox Hill and graduated from Lewisville Vocational School in Ulysses. 

On June 16, 1946, in All Saints Episcopal Church in Brookland, he married his soulmate, the former Irene M. Palmatier, who survives. Almon and his wife owned and operated a farm, which was recognized as a Century farm. He was a school bus driver in the Northern Potter School District for many years and served on the Northern Potter School Board. He was a member of the Ulysses United Methodist Church, 70-year member of Lewisville Lodge #556 F&AM in Ulysses and Coudersport Consistory, Gold Grange, and a life member of the Tri-Town Volunteer Fire Co. in Ulysses. He served as an officer of the Fox Hill Cemetery for many years. Almon and Irene were honored as Ulysses Citizens of the Year in 2012. He and his wife went on many bus trips. Almon enjoyed boating, fishing with friends and family, trapping, and camping, especially the Labor Day camping weekend with the whole crew at the farm campsite. He even tried his hand at flying and was told, “Almon straighten up and fly right.” A soft-spoken man, he never said a whole lot at one time, but listen well, because it was worth remembering every word he said. 

Surviving besides his wife of 71 years, Irene, are: six children, Theresa (Ronald “Ronnie”) Hall of North Bingham, John (Lorrene) Freeman of Ulysses, Karen (Mahlon, Jr. “Mick”) Cole of Mills, David (Robin) Freeman of Ulysses, Paul (Cheryl) Freeman of Ulysses, and Rita (Scott) Braymiller of Troy; 16 grandchildren; 18 great-grandchildren; and a sister, Charlene Nelson of Haines City, FL; nieces and nephews. 

 He was predeceased by a brother, Volney Freeman; and a son-in-law, Ray Hancock. 

Friends may call Tuesday, May 22, 2018 from 2:00 – 4:00 and 7:00 – 9:00 PM at the Olney Funeral Home & Cremation Service, Ulysses, PA. A Masonic Service will be held 8:30 PM Tuesday in the funeral home. Funeral Services will be held on Wednesday at 11:00 AM in the Ulysses United Methodist Church. The Rev. Todd Lamer will officiate.

Lyme Disease and Other Tickborne Diseases in Pennsylvania


Whole deer may not be brought into Pennsylvania from any state with CWD.

Pennsylvanians who harvest deer anywhere in New York, Ohio, Maryland or West Virginia no longer may bring them home without first removing the carcass parts with the highest risk of transmitting chronic wasting disease (CWD).

As part of the fight to slow the spread of CWD in the Commonwealth, the Pennsylvania Game Commission has updated its executive order prohibiting the importation of high-risk deer parts into Pennsylvania.

While the order has always prohibited whole deer from being brought into Pennsylvania from most U.S. states and Canadian provinces where CWD exists, it previously permitted deer harvested in New York, Ohio, Maryland or West Virginia to be brought in, so long as the deer weren’t reported to have been harvested in any county where CWD has been detected.

The updated order gives Pennsylvania’s free-ranging deer better protection, said Game Commission Executive Director Bryan Burhans.

“The previous rules didn’t provide assurance that deer harvested in CWD-positive counties within New York, Ohio, Maryland or West Virginia weren’t making their way into the Commonwealth,” Burhans said. “While the order prohibited the high-risk parts of those deer from being imported into Pennsylvania, enforcement of the order relied on out-of-state hunters being knowledgeable and honest about harvest sites.

“As we’ve seen in Pennsylvania, just because CWD appears confined to a specific area, doesn’t mean it won’t turn up somewhere completely new, miles away,” Burhans said. “Tightening up this order puts teeth in the Game Commission’s ability to enforce it, allowing us to better protect our deer and elk from CWD.”

Now that the updated order has taken effect, there are a total of 24 states and two Canadian provinces from which high-risk cervid parts cannot be imported into Pennsylvania.

The parts ban affects hunters who harvest deer, elk, moose, mule deer and other cervids in: Arkansas, Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming; as well as the Canadian provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan.

Those harvesting cervids in the identified states and provinces must leave behind the carcass parts that have the highest risk for transmitting CWD. Those parts are: the head (including brain, tonsils, eyes and any lymph nodes); spinal cord/backbone; spleen; skull plate with attached antlers, if visible brain or spinal cord tissue is present; cape, if visible brain or spinal cord tissue is present; upper canine teeth, if root structure or other soft tissue is present; any object or article containing visible brain or spinal cord tissue; unfinished taxidermy mounts; and brain-tanned hides.

Hunters who are successful in those states and provinces from which the importation of high-risk parts into Pennsylvania is banned are allowed to import meat from any deer, elk, moose, mule deer or caribou, so long as the backbone is not present.

Successful hunters also are allowed to bring back cleaned skull plates with attached antlers, if no visible brain or spinal cord tissue is present; tanned hide or raw hide with no visible brain or spinal cord tissue present; capes, if no visible brain or spinal cord tissue is present; upper canine teeth, if no root structure or other soft tissue is present; and finished taxidermy mounts.

Pennsylvania first detected chronic wasting disease in 2012 at a captive deer facility in Adams County. The disease has since been detected in free-ranging and captive deer in parts of southcentral and northcentral Pennsylvania. To date, 104 free-ranging CWD-positive deer have been detected in Pennsylvania.

The Game Commission in late February also established its fourth Disease Management Area, DMA 4, in Lancaster, Lebanon and Berks counties in response to CWD turning up at a captive deer facility in Lancaster County.

Burhans said hunters who harvest deer, elk or moose in a state or province where CWD is known to exist should follow instructions from that state’s wildlife agency on how and where to submit the appropriate samples to have their animal tested. If, after returning to Pennsylvania, a hunter is notified that his or her harvest tested positive for CWD, the hunter is encouraged to immediately contact the Game Commission region office that serves the county in which they reside for disposal recommendations and assistance.

A list of region offices and contact information can be found at by scrolling to the bottom of any page to select the “Connect with Us” tab.

First identified in 1967, CWD affects members of the cervid family, including all species of deer, elk and moose. To date, there have been no reported cases of CWD infection in people, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). But the disease is always fatal to the cervids it infects.

As a precaution, CDC recommends people avoid eating meat from deer and elk that look sick or that test positive for CWD.

More information on CWD can be found at CDC’s website,

There currently is no practical way to test live animals for CWD, nor is there a vaccine. Clinical signs of CWD include poor posture, lowered head and ears, uncoordinated movement, rough-hair coat, weight loss, increased thirst, excessive drooling, and, ultimately, death.

Much more information on CWD, as well as a video showing hunters how they can process venison for transport and consumption, is available at the Game Commission’s website.
