Potter County Courthouse Getting Facelift

Potter County Courthouse Getting Facelift

courthouse1Potter County’s historic courthouse is getting a facelift to improve its appearance and structural integrity. The county’s maintenance department, under the direction of Joe Kurtz (right), is using a rented 80-foot lift to begin the project on the courthouse’s front side along East Second Street, facing south.

 The surface will be sanded, repainted and sealed. Work should be completed by early August. Cost has been estimated at about $10,000. Peeling paint is most noticeable on that side. Eventually, the other three sides of the courthouse will be addressed in the same manner. Employees will also be repairing cosmetics and window casings, while looking for other signs of structural deterioration. 

Several years ago, the commissioners investigated a proposal to remove the multiple layers of paint applied to the original brick surface and preserve/restore the bricks. It was deemed too expensive, partly due to the added cost of disposal for a large volume of lead-based paint. The courthouse was built in 1851-53 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Buildings. Its Greek Revival style, blended with later Victorian elements, and its setting in the open town square create a stately appearance. (John F. Domaleski photos)

Health Services Option Now Available for Penn State DuBois Business Students

DuBOIS – Through a partnership with Penn Highlands Healthcare, students in the Penn State DuBois Bachelor of Science in Business program will now be able to tailor their education to fit careers in the healthcare industry. The new Health Services Option will be available to business majors at the campus this fall. This option prepares students to pursue careers in the health services sector with emphasis on the organizational, management and administrative aspects of health care organizations.

Penn Highlands Healthcare in DuBois, Clearfield, Brookville and St. Marys will offer these Penn State students an internship experience at one of their Centers or Healthcare Offices.

"This option will allow students to gain a specialized knowledge of the healthcare industry, and hands-on experience from their internship," said Laurie Breakey, business program leader at Penn State DuBois. "They'll develop the skills needed to work in hospital administration, nursing home administration, health care clinic management, and more."

The Health Services option in the Bachelor of Science in Business degree allows a student to focus on studying and gaining real-world experience in the rapidly growing healthcare and health service industry. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics confirmed that 296,900 jobs were added to the healthcare sector in 2011. Locally, 16% of jobs in Clearfield County and neighboring counties are in the healthcare field. According to the North Central Workforce Investment Board of Pennsylvania, the healthcare industry is one of the High Priority Occupation areas in need of more educated and skilled workers to fill annual job openings across North Central Pennsylvania.

Hearing Rescheduled for Hilcorp Application for Gas Well Spacing Units

Hearing Rescheduled for Hilcorp Application for Gas Well Spacing Units

HARRISBURG -- The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) today announced that hearing officer Michael Bangs has rescheduled the public hearing sessions on an Application for Gas Well Spacing Units, or spacing order, received from Hilcorp Energy Co., for September 16 and 17.

Hilcorp Energy Co. is applying for a well spacing order that establishes four gas well drilling units on 3,267 acres to drill into the Utica Shale Formation in Pulaski Township, Lawrence County and Shenango Township, Mercer County.

Under the Oil and Gas Conservation Law of 1961, when a spacing order application is submitted, an administrative hearing must be held prior to entering an order establishing well spacing and drilling units. The hearing sessions were postponed twice previously.

The first hearing session has been rescheduled for September 16 and 17. The hearing session will begin at 10 a.m. and 9 a.m. respectively and be held at the Albert P. Gettings Government Center Annex of the Lawrence County Government Center, Assembly Room, 349 Countyline St., New Castle.

The first, two-day hearing session will accept testimony on the spacing order application. DEP, Hilcorp and property owners and operators in the area subject to the order will be eligible to provide testimony. The first session will be open for the general public to attend and observe.

The second hearing session will begin at 6 p.m. on September 17, at the same location. As requested previously by DEP, anyone from the general public will have the opportunity to provide input about the application at the second session.

Interested persons and operators wishing to present testimony at either hearing should contact Glenda Davidson at 717-787-4449 at least seven days prior to the first session. Those giving testimony at the second session will be requested to submit three written copies of their oral testimony to the assigned hearing officer.

The department will submit a public notice of the rescheduled hearings for publication in local papers at least two weeks prior to the hearing sessions. Although not required by law, DEP also will directly notify all royalty owners and operators within the area subject to the requested order. Information on the hearing will also be published in the Pennsylvania Bulletin.
Also today, DEP Secretary E. Christopher Abruzzo signed an order granting intervention to additional property owners and directing the assigned hearing officer to respond to pending motions to stay and any future motions to stay.

For more information about Hilcorp’s application, visit www.dep.state.pa.us and click on “Oil and Gas,” “Office of Oil and Gas Management” and then “Conservation Law.”

Pennsylvanians looking for more information should call 717-772-2199.

Since Jan. 1 this year, 275 teachers have been arrested for sexual misconduct with a child

Since Jan. 1 this year, 275 teachers have been arrested for sexual misconduct with a child.
Two-hundred seventy-five. That's the number of teachers across America who have been arrested for sexual misconduct with a student since January 1. It's more than one teacher for each day of the year so far.
When I last spoke on this subject on the Senate floor, in April, it was 130. Enough is enough.
It is time for the Senate to pass my bipartisan Protecting Students from Sexual and Violent Predators Act and crack down on those who prey on children.
As the father of three young children, I cannot imagine the pain of a parent whose child has been sexually abused. As your U.S. senator, I am dedicated to strengthening laws to better protect kids - in Pennsylvania and across our country.
The House of Representatives passed this legislation unanimously last year. It's time for the Senate to finally do the same.

I-80 WB resurfacing project in Columbia County continues

On Sunday night, July 20, work will continue on a $2.6 million resurfacing project in Interstate 80 westbound in Columbia County.

The work includes milling and paving 5 miles in both lanes from Fishing Creek Bridge to the Montour County line.

Prime contractor Glenn O. Hawbaker, Inc., began at Fishing Creek Bridge, approximately 0.5 miles east of the Buckhorn interchange (Exit 232), and has been working toward the Montour County line in the travel lane using two 12-hour shifts and working non-stop from Sunday evenings at 7 p.m. to Fridays at noon.

Two lanes will be open to traffic from Friday to Sunday night. Traffic will be reduced to one lane while the work is being performed but all on ramps and off ramps at the Buckhorn interchange will remain open.

Motorists are advised to expect delays, proceed carefully through the work zone, be aware of changing traffic patterns and most importantly, watch for workers in the construction zone.

The contractor is on an aggressive work schedule to limit the duration of impact to motorists. Weather permitting, the paving is expected to be completed next week. The entire project is scheduled to be completed Aug. 22.

Motorists can check conditions on major roadways by visiting www.511PA.com. 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 700 traffic cameras. 511PA is also available through a smartphone application for iPhone and Android devices, by calling 5-1-1, or by following regional Twitter alerts accessible on the 511PA website.

Barnum Road Detour starts July 28 in McKean County

ACT 89 Transportation Funds bring Bridge Replacement to Eldred Area
Barnum Road Detour starts July 28 in McKean County


Bradford – Funding from Act 89, the state’s new transportation plan, is making replacement of a bridge on Route 1011 (Barnum Road) near Eldred possible, according to PennDOT.

The structurally deficient bridge will be closed and a detour posted on Monday July 28.

The existing bridge spans Mix Creek, about two miles northwest of the village of Eldred. The current bridge was built in 1930 and carries an average of more than 2,100 vehicles each day. It will be replaced with a new box culvert.

PennDOT’s official detour is 20 miles long. Motorists will use Routes 1011 (Barnum Road), 346, and 546 to New York State and then use Cattaraugus County Road 45, New York State Route 16, and Cattaraugus County Road 29 before returning to PA Route 1011. Drivers familiar with the area may choose to use alternate routes.

Work is scheduled to last until late August. L.C. Whitford of Wellsville, New York is the contractor for this $480,000 job. Work will include removal of the current bridge, placement of the new box culvert, and a small amount of roadway and drainage improvements. All work is weather dependent.
Drivers are reminded to obey posted speed limits, follow detour signs, and always buckle up.

Community Honors Area Vietnam Veteran
 

Many area veterans and members of the Galeton community came out last weekend to remember Specialist Clark Robert Douglas, who gave his life in service to our country in Vietnam. Douglas’ wife and two daughters unveiled the sign naming the State Route 1022 bridge over Pine Creek in Galeton Borough in his honor. Douglas, formerly of Galeton, was a U.S. Army medic with the 1st Air Cavalry Division Charlie Company and was killed while administering aid to a wounded soldier on Nov. 11, 1969, at the age of 21. Pictured left to right in front of the sign are: me, Douglas’ daughter Michelle Douglas Drury, his wife Linda Cox, his daughter Patti Douglas Good and Rep. Matt Baker.

Morning Solitude

This morning I got up a little after 4am and proceeded to take the dogs out and fix a cup of coffee. By 4:30am I was out on the porch. It's interesting to me that there's not much going on at that hour of the morning. In the distance I can hear the trucks on the interstate that is about four miles away. Occasionally my wind chime makes a noise as a gentle breeze blows under my canopy, but beyond that, it's dead quiet, and I do mean quiet.

I find that in the solitude of the quiet, there is a great time for reflection. Some may call it prayer. But whatever you want to call it, it is the perfect time because there are no distractions. Even my Jack Russell, who is normally up and down my deck looking for chipmunks or other critters, finds time to sit quietly at my side. Solitude gives way to thought and meditation. It is a peaceful time, perhaps that's why I love mornings so much, less distraction and a great time to gather yourself together in preparation for the day. Perhaps that's why it was said that Jesus went off early to pray. There is something about the solitude of the quiet to calm one's spirit.

Slowly, as dawn starts to approach, I see a deer moving across my neighbor's lawn. I can only see its silhouette, and I questioned at first if was really seeing a deer or just shadows, but soon I realize that it was a deer and it's moving closer. Even my dog sees it, but it's content to sit at my side and just watch. I suddenly become aware that I'm hearing the birds and I look at my watch, it's 5:15am. You may not realize how much of a difference there are in the sounds at 4:30am and 5:15am, but it's dramatic. My solitude is broken as I listen to their morning songs and I realize that it's time to start my day. I have an early breakfast meeting, so for the next half hour or so, I need to get ready. But I take a moment to thank God for the quiet that I have had this morning. It has helped to prepare my attitude for the day. For that I am grateful. It is a peaceful way to start your day. We all can learn something from it. Think about it.
