Galeton Rotary Route Six sign

Several years ago the Rotary Club removed the abandoned Methodist Church at the corner of Main St (Rt6) and Bridge Street.

This not only improved the appearance of Main Street, but it allowed the club to erect a U.S. Grand Army Of The Republic sign.

Over the years the sign had fallen in disrepair. Last year the club, along with the help and direction of Rotarians, George Bowen and Bob Spencer had a new sign built and last week it was put in place.

The Galeton Rotary Club met at the Ox Yoke Inn on April 16th with president Pete Folk presiding.

The speaker for the evening was Pastor Tom Shatto. Pastor Shatto is the Shared Ministry minister for St. Paul Lutheran Church and First Presbyterian Church in Galeton.

He spoke to the club about a very ambitious program he has started. It is called the Galeton Study Group. At present the study group is composed of Pastor Shatto, Carol Smedley, Susan Miller and Henry Lush. The purpose of the group is to determine community identified needs for improvement of the community,with emphasis on service to children/youth, and awareness/prevention of drug use and other risk behaviors. 2015 study time-line is to study/ network/visit/identify resources/determine needs/enlist leadership/solicit funding.

To date the the group has meet with the Penn State Survey Research Center at the university to perhaps contract them to do a community survey. Carol Smedley has made a presentation to the 9th to 12th graders about the hazards of drug use. The response from the students was very informative and helpful. The group has met with the Tioga Co. Partnership For Community Health Director, Sue Sticklin, Redemption Church Pastor Brent Baker and Lighthouse Group Leader. John Garmon. Many more informative visits and discussions are planned throughout the area.

Several other community leaders will be asked to step forward to assist with this very important study group.

The group is proposing a two track approach. Spiritual and Developmental.

The community will be kept informed as the group study proceeds.

Focal themes are, Faith, Family and Education.

Sample questions for the survey: what are the community strengths of Galeton?, How can we make Galeton better? What challenges do the children and teen face in Galeton? What challenges do families face in Galeton? WHAT CAN THE COMMUNITY DO TOGETHER TO MEET THESE CHALLENGES?

The next meeting will be held Tuesday May 5 at 6PM at the First Presbyterian Church. We welcome anyone interested to be sure and come.

Public Hearings Announced for Oil and Gas Regulations

The state Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) announced this week it will hold three public hearings on the latest draft of proposed regulations for the conventional and unconventional oil and gas industries.

The hearing closest to our area will be held on Thursday, April 30, from 6-9 p.m. at the Warren County Courthouse, 204 Fourth Ave., Warren.

Those who wish to present testimony during the hearing are asked to register in advance by contacting the DEP Policy Office at 717-783-8727. Individuals will be called to testify in the order they registered. If time permits at the hearing, those who did not register in advance will be given the opportunity to testify.

Each speaker will have the opportunity to present up to five minutes of verbal testimony. To ensure that all speakers have a fair and equal opportunity to present their testimony, relinquishing of time to other speakers will be prohibited, and groups are asked to designate one speaker. All presenters should bring three copies of their comments and exhibits for submission to DEP.

Those who prefer to present their comments in writing or who are unable to attend one of the hearings may submit written testimony online or by e-mail to RegComments@pa.gov. You may also send comments to DEP Policy Office, 400 Market St., P.O. Box 2063, Harrisburg, PA 17105-2063. Comments must be received by May 19. A subject heading of the rulemaking, the commentator’s full name, and a return address must be included in each comment submission.

Bill Aims to Bring More ATV, Snowmobile Riding Opportunities

I recently reintroduced legislation designed to bring fairness and accountability to the collection and distribution of funds for ATV- and snowmobile-riding opportunities in the Commonwealth.

House Bill 970 would direct the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) to maintain separate ATV management and snowmobile management accounts to ensure an equitable distribution of those funds. DCNR is currently unable to identify how much it spends on ATV trails versus snowmobile trails, but there are significantly more riding opportunities for snowmobiles than for ATVs on public lands.

Based on testimony offered at a public hearing on the bill last year, it is clear that DCNR needs to do a far better job of providing opportunities for both ATV and snowmobile riders. Holding the agency accountable for how funds are spent is an important step in the right direction.

The bill was referred to the House Tourism and Recreational Development Committee for consideration.

Got Your Fishing Poles Ready?

 
Saturday marks the start of trout season across the Commonwealth. Best of luck to all the anglers out there as you take to the waters!

If you’re a fan of technology, the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission has unveiled a smartphone app which provides information on trout stocking and access to fishing locations. The app uses a phone’s GPS coordinates to display locations within 5, 15, 25 and 50 miles away. It also includes a link that allows anglers to find licensing agents near them and a feature to share photos of their catch.

The app is available for free on both Apple’s App Store and Google’s Play Store.

Baker Recognized for Drug Overdose Awareness, Prevention Efforts

Rep. Matt Baker (R-Tioga/Bradford/Potter) was recently presented with a Partnership in Excellence Award from Jim Kockler, Potter County Human Services administrator, on behalf of the Pennsylvania Association of County Drug and Alcohol Administrators (PACDAA) for his work on legislation to create an enhanced prescription drug monitoring program, which is now law.
Receives Excellence in Partnership Award for work on state’s prescription drug monitoring program

HARRISBURG – Rep. Matt Baker (R-Tioga/Bradford/Potter) was recently recognized for his efforts in tackling the growing prescription drug abuse epidemic sweeping the nation with an award from the Pennsylvania Association of County Drug and Alcohol Administrators (PACDAA) for his work on legislation signed into law that creates an enhanced prescription drug monitoring program in Pennsylvania.

“As chairman of the House Health Committee, I understand the growing problem of prescription drug abuse in Pennsylvania and across the country,” said Baker. “I was happy to work with my colleagues in both the House and Senate to get legislation signed into law that will help us address this issue head on and save lives.”

The new law expands the state’s prescription drug monitoring program to include schedules II through V controlled substances that are prescribed and dispensed in Pennsylvania. The database helps improve patient care and prescribing practices, uncover drug diversion, and identify “doctor shopping.”

According to the Office of National Drug Control Policy, prescription drugs are the second-most abused category of drugs in the United States, following marijuana. New studies also reveal that Pennsylvania ranks seventh in the nation in the number of drug overdose deaths, most of which involved prescription drugs. In fact, drug overdoses now surpass the number of deaths each year from automobile accidents in Pennsylvania.

Baker said nearly all 50 states at this point have in place some type of prescription drug monitoring system that will eventually lead to the sharing of information across state borders. That would enhance tracking of those who live along the borders who may use doctors and pharmacies in two states to feed their prescription drug habit.

Scholars Give Thanks at Scholarship Luncheon

Scholarship recipient Tawnya Cordwell offered the student's perspective on the impact scholarships have had on her education during Friday's Scholarship Luncheon.

DuBOIS – Scholarship recipients had the chance to thank many of the people who help to make their education more accessible and affordable at the annual Penn State DuBois Scholarship Luncheon, held at Lifetime Celebrations in DuBois on Friday. Each year, donors and scholars alike are invited to the event to get to know one another over lunch. Donors get to see, first hand, the kind of impact they've had in the lives of students, and the students have the chance to explain how critical the scholarships have been in their educational pursuits.

"At Penn State DuBois, we are proud to award more than $350,000 in scholarships each year. That is an incredible amount of support for a campus of our size," said Chancellor Melanie Hatch during her welcoming comments. She went on to thank the donors, saying, "We are exceedingly grateful for your support. You've demonstrated, through your kindness, that Penn State DuBois is an educational institution that you believe in; we strive each day to live up to that ideal for our students, and those who support us in providing opportunity for them."

During a short program, students P.J. Monella and Tawnya Cordwell spoke, offering the student perspective. Scholarship donors Bill Allenbaugh and Dan Kohlhepp also offered remarks on the donor's perspective.

"Thank you, from the bottom of my heart," Monella said to the donors in the room, explaining that his scholarships help make it possible for him to attend college. "There's no way I could have done it without money from all of you wonderful folks. I hope someday I can return to Penn State DuBois as a donor and donate to scholarships."

Cordwell added, "Without donors such as yourselves and these scholarships, I don't know how my life would have been different, nor do I want to think about it. I have accomplished so much here, and still have so far to go. I can't thank you all enough for the generous gift you have allowed myself and other students to receive. You have given us one of the best gifts a student can receive, and that has allowed us to shine by taking some of the financial burden off of us."

Personal experiences like the ones the students shared are sometimes what inspire people to give back, years later, when they are able. Bill Allenbaugh and his wife, Nancy, are no exception. The couple established a scholarship fund at Penn State DuBois last year. Allenbaugh, a Penn State alumnus, successful phycologist, and part-time instructor at Penn State DuBois said, "A Penn State degree opened doors for me that I never even knew existed. Knowing how students sometimes struggle, I knew the most important thing Nancy and I could do is give back."

"Penn State DuBois is good for you, Kohlhepp said, as he went so far as to unveil a sign he had printed with the campus logo and that very slogan. He later gifted the sign to Chancellor Melanie Hatch.

CHAMPLIN TO REVIEW BOOK FOR FRIENDS OF HANLEY LIBRARY

BRADFORD, Pa. Isabelle Champlin, a retired professor of archaeology at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford, next week will review “Wanderlust: A History of Walking” by Rebecca Solnit.

The program will take place 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Mukaiyama University Room in the Frame-Westerberg Commons. The program is sponsored by the Friends of Hanley Library and is free and open to the public.

Solnit’s book has been called “a delightful and mind-expanding look at one of the activities that makes us human.” Solnit creates a fascinating portrait of the range of possibilities presented by walking, and explores how people walk for pleasure as well as for political, spiritual, aesthetic and social meaning.

Champlin’s presentation will also include an account of her recent pilgrimage in Spain along the Camino de Santiago de Compostela, also known as the Way of St. James.

Pine Creek Bridge Job to start Monday in Potter County

Pine Creek Bridge Job to start Monday in Potter County

Ulysses, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announces that work will get underway Monday, April 20, to replace a bridge on Route 449 in Potter County. The bridge spans Pine Creek a half-mile north of the village of Brookland. It will be replaced by a box culvert.

The current bridge was built in 1930 and carries an average of 632 vehicles daily. Replacing the bridge will allow PennDOT to remove it from Potter County’s structurally deficient list.

Initial work will include clearing and grubbing, along with erosion and sedimentation controls.

A two-lane temporary run-around will be constructed upstream of the current bridge. The temporary road will carry traffic during construction of the new box culvert. PennDOT expects the temporary roadway to be in service later this spring. Traffic will continue to use the existing bridge until the temporary road is opened.

Overall work will include removal of the existing bridge, placement of the new box culvert, paving, and guide rail updates. All work is weather and schedule dependent. The new box culvert is expected to open to traffic in early August.

Dolomite Products Company, Inc./A.L. Blades of Hornell, New York is the contractor on this $1.1 million project. Drivers are reminded to obey posted speed limits, use caution in and around work zones, and always buckle up.
