Stage Fright Concert is Friday, Sept. 8, 2017

Stage Fright is a four-member band formed as a tribute to The Band" of the late 1960s and early 1970s.
In August 2015, Stage Fright played its first concert as a tribute to "The Band," a Canadian-American group.

At 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 8, the four bandsmen will be on stage in the Gallery at the Warehouse Theatre, 3 Central Avenue, Wellsboro to perform songs written and played by "The Band," including their three biggest hits - "Weight (1968)," "Up On Cripple Creek (1969)" and "The Night They Drove Ol' Dixie Down (1969)."

Members of Stage Fright are: "Joe Callahan of Wellsboro on guitar; Sean Monroe of Horseheads, N.Y. on bass guitar; Mike Watkins of Addison, N.Y. on piano, organ, accordion, mandolin and fiddle; and Mike Nickerson of Corning, N.Y. on percussion. The four share vocals and do a lot of harmonies. Watkins, Nickerson and Callahan grew up in Tioga County, Pa.

"We have been doing this for over two years in addition to holding down jobs and playing with other bands," said Callahan. '"Sean wanted to start a tribute group for 'The Band' for a long time and recruited us. We rehearse at Mike Watkins' house, which is on a lake in the woods in Addison. The Band actually rehearsed at a home in the woods at Woodstock, N.Y.," he added.

Stage Fright's name came from the title of The Band's third studio album, which included Stage Fight as its title track.

"From 1968 to 1975, The Band was one of the most popular and influential rock groups in the world," according to Bruce Eder who wrote about them in an article published in the "All-Music Guide." "Their music was embraced by critics as seriously as the music of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones," Eder stated. "Their albums were analyzed and reviewed as intensely as any records by their one-time employer and sometime mentor Bob Dylan. And, for a long time, their personalities were as recognizable individually to the casual music public as the members of the Beatles."

The five members of "The Band" in 1968 included Rick Danko on bass, Levon Helm on drums and guitar, Richard Manuel on piano, Garth Hudson on organ and Robbie Robertson on rhythm guitar. In 1973, the group played "one major show at the race track in Watkins Glen, N.Y. before the largest audience ever assembled for a concert -- it was a demonstration of their place in the rock pantheon that the Band was booked alongside the Grateful Dead and the Allman Brothers Band," Eder wrote.

The Band produced the following albums, "Music From Big Pink," "The Band," "Stage Fright," "Cahoots," "Rock of Ages," Moondog Matinee," "Planet Waves" with Dylan, ""Before the Flood," "Northern Lights -- Southern Cross," a best-of album in 1976, "Islands," and their last, "The Last Waltz,"

This concert is BYOB. Bring your favorite beverages and snacks. Tickets are $12 for adults, seniors and students. Children 12 and under accompanied by a parent are admitted free. To reserve a table at no extra charge or for tickets, call 570-724-6220.

Senior Senator Casey Visits Shinglehouse Seniors

Sen. Bob Casey signs the O.V. Senior Center's guest book after the center's director Mary Jones (at left), presented him with gifts, including a quilted blanket and a barbecue apron made by O.V. Quilters, along with a jug of maple syrup.

Potter County commissioners Susan Kefover and Paul Heimel were on hand Monday to greet Sen. Bob Casey (Dem.) during his visit at the Oswayo Valley Senior Center. Kefover, a fellow Democrat, is currently serving her fifth term as commissioner. Heimel, a Republican, said he appreciates any opportunity to speak with our county's elected representatives in Washington.

Casey spoke one-on-one with constituents about their concerns after his short address to the group gathered for his visit Monday in Shinglehouse.
By Sharon Corderman

Sen. Bob Casey, Pennsylvania’s senior senator, stopped by the Shinglehouse Senior Center on Monday to visit and to discuss healthcare and budget cuts, among other things. Casey, a Democrat, has represented Pennsylvania in the U.S. Senate since 2007 and prior to that served as Pennsylvania Auditor General from 1997 to 2005 and as Pennsylvania Treasurer from 2005 to 2007. His father was governor of Pennsylvania from 1987 to ‘95.

Casey said his primary focus as a senator is protecting Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. “Twenty or 30 years ago no one was talking about putting Social Security into the stock market,” Casey said, “but in 2005 that idea was broached.” He added that Congress has proposed changing Medicare into a voucher system, although that proposal was defeated and Casey said it might need to be stopped again.

Casey then went on to say that two-thirds of the money in Medicaid goes to those in long-term care, low-income people and people with disabilities. He noted that 40 percent of the low-income group are children. “If a child has profound disabilities they’ll require expensive care and even folks with a good income are going to need help with those expenses,” Casey said. He added that the recent healthcare reform bill would have cut Medicaid and said the upcoming budget bill will likely do the same. According to the Congressional Budget Office, however, the proposed ‘cuts’ would actually have been a reduction in the rate of increase for Medicaid over the next 20 years by approximately 30 percent. Democrats voted, without exception, against the healthcare bill and Casey said they would need to do the same with any cuts to Medicaid in a budget bill.

Casey next discussed prescription costs and explained legislation he introduced on Feb. 28, along with Sens. Bernie Sanders and Cory Booker, that would allow, beginning in two years, for prescription drugs to be imported from foreign manufacturers certified by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The drugs must have the same active ingredient, route of administration and strength as drugs approved in the United States and are expected to be much cheaper. In mid-January, Casey and Booker voted against a similar bill proposed by Sanders, arguing that the FDA can’t guarantee the safety of imported drugs, but say now that they’ve added robust safety measures to the proposal.

Casey then warned his audience against scammers, saying that his wife received a call recently from someone claiming to be from the IRS. “If the phone call is out of the blue, with no letters or anything leading up to it, don’t believe anyone saying they’re from the IRS,” Casey said. “Also, if the caller demands you do something immediately, that’s a good sign it’s a scam.”

Budget cuts were Casey’s next topic, particularly the elimination of block grants administered by Housing and Urban Development (HUD) that Casey said brought $168 million in federal taxpayer dollars into Pennsylvania last year. “Budget Director Mick Mulvaney says we don’t need it,” Casey said, “but I would tell him, from one Irishman to another, we do need it.” The budget proposal states that the block grants are not “well-targeted to the poorest populations and have not demonstrated results,” but proponents of the grants, such as Casey, defend them vigorously. He said he believes Republicans will join with Democrats to fight the proposed cuts when the budget comes up for vote this fall.

Casey then said he has good news from Washington. Saying that he expects those in the audience saw what happened with the Obamacare repeal bill and noting that Democrats were relieved that the dissenting vote from Republican senator John McCain defeated the repeal effort, Casey said that both sides now realize they have to negotiate for a solution. “As I was walking off the [Senate] floor at 2 a.m. after the vote,” Casey said, “a Republican senator from the south grabbed my arm and asked me if we can talk about healthcare.” Casey added that he had dinner twice in the following days with small groups of Democratic and Republican colleagues to discuss the issue. “So there is good news to come out of that whole process,” he concluded.

In closing, Casey thanked everyone in the audience for their contribution to the country and to the county.

He was then presented with the following tokens of appreciation from the community:
• a Green Wave tee shirt from Dr. Michele Hartzell, superintendent of Oswayo Valley School District;
• maple syrup and a book by David Castano entitled “An Historical Tour Guide to Potter County Pennsylvania” from Mary Jones, director of the Oswayo Valley Senior Center;
• a quilted blanket blanket made from material depicting native fish of Potter and McKean counties, made by OV Senior Center quilters, along with a barbecue apron in honor of Casey’s father, also presented by Jones; and
• a Healing Waters tee shirt presented by David Saulter, an event organizer and member of God’s Country Chapter of Trout Unlimited, which sponsors the event, along with a book about special needs children.

Shinglehouse Police Chief Brad Buchholz asked Casey to sign a ‘Shinglehouse Rocks’ rock and Jones asked him to sign the senior center’s guest book.

The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford Alumni Association will honor alumnus Terri Smith Leven ’69-’71 and Tim Ziaukas, professor of public relations, during its Alumni and Family Weekend Sept. 29-Oct. 1
Leven will accept the PBAA’s Denny Lowery Distinguished Volunteer Award, while Ziaukas will receive the alumni association’s Teaching Excellence Award.

Both will be recognized at the PBAA Alumni Awards Dinner and Athletic Hall of Fame Induction at 6 p.m. Sept. 30 in the Mukaiyama University Room of the Frame-Westerberg Commons. The cost is $25 for adults, $12 for children 6 to 12 and free for children 5 and under. For registration, visit or call 814-362-5091.

Leven has been involved with the PBAA since its inception. She has served on its board and taken part in committees and annual events such as the Backpack to Briefcase career preparation program and the Graduation Central event for seniors.

She has also made substantial contributions as a volunteer with the Pitt-Bradford Arts Council, volunteering at Kaleidoscope programs for children as well as other arts events on campus.

In 2011, she was chairperson of the Arts Endowment Gala. “This was a very large and creative event that took almost a year in planning and preparation,” said Patty Colosimo, director of arts programming, who supported the nomination by Jeanie Satterwhite ’64-’66, Patty Sanfilippo, Flora Cohen and Isabelle Champlin ’65.

Recent recipients of the Lowery Distinguished Volunteer Award include Fred Proper ’89, Chris Luke ’94, and John Foerstner ’79.

Ziaukas has taught public relations at Pitt-Bradford since 1994. Two recent graduates from his program, Delaney Held ’16 and Lauren Ball ’17, will present his award.

“Tim is exactly what a student looks for in a program director and advisor,” Held said. “He has real-world experience, a great sense of humor and a deep commitment to helping his students succeed. He made the program feel like a family.

“Every former student of Tim’s could tell you a dozen stories in which he determinedly pushed them to be their best and refused to let them slack off. But they could also tell you a dozen stories about Tim’s antics that would make you laugh until you cry.

“Tim is part of the reason Pitt-Bradford felt like a second home to me.”

Recent recipients of the teaching award are Ernie Kallenbach, assistant professor of accounting; Dr. Jean Truman, associate professor of nursing; and Dr. Lauren Yaich, associate professor of biology.

Pa. hate groups: some open, some hidden, some claim to be mislabeled

By David Wenner

Daniel Burnside, considered a prominent Pennsylvania hate group member, says he hides from no one. The self-employed artist and Potter County resident says it's easy to find his business and the Coudersport home he shares with his wife and children.

"That's the life I have to live, with the scum of the earth that's been brain-washed," he said this week.

Burnside, 42, is a leader in the National Socialist Movement, listed as a neo-Nazi organization and a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate groups around the country.

According to the center, there are 40 active hates groups in Pennsylvania, giving it the fifth-highest number in the United States. The center says there are 917 hate groups nationwide. California, with 79, has the most. Read more...
