Step Back In Time Sunday At History Museum

July25ProgramAbouPainterr Potter County Today

Many prominent Potter County citizens proudly posed for formal portraits painted by a world-class artist who just happened to reside in Coudersport. Cyrenius Stilson Jones, who lived in Potter County 1847 until his passing in 1885, has left behind a treasure trove of paintings spread across a wide area. Many have been lost.

 But four of them reside in the museum of the Potter County Historical Society, so it’s only fitting that a public viewing of his works and discussion of his life – and his subjects’ lives – will be held at the museum at 2 pm on Sunday, July 26. A brief meeting of the Historical Society will precede the afternoon’s program. Two other portraits by Jones that are on-loan to the museum will be displayed, as will photographs showing some of his other works. 

He was a prolific artist, painting numerous signs for downtown businesses. The public is encouraged to attend the program and learn more about these chapters of Potter County history. Jones painted this portrait of attorney John S. Mann, which is on display at the museum of the Potter County Historical Society. Mann was a vocal abolitionist whose home served as an important station for the Underground Railroad. Elected to the state legislature in 1865, and a delegate to the Constitutional Convention in 1872, Mann introduced the Prohibitory Law of 1869. It was intended solely for Potter County, prohibiting the sale of alcoholic beverages and issuance of liquor licenses until it was repealed in 1900.

Major Initiative Offers Job Training, College Credits

Potter County TodaypitchfordmorleyResidents in Potter and eight other northwestern Pennsylvania counties will be able to earn two-year college degrees or receive other specialized training and education through the Rural Regional Community College. It has been more than three years in the making, according to Sen. Joseph Scarnati, who shepherded enabling legislation through the State Senate. Rep. Martin Causer was a champion of the bill in the State House of Representatives. A 15-member board of trustees is meeting regularly to direct the community college’s development and administration, in consultation with local educators, industrial leaders and business owners. Goal is to tailor curriculum to the needs of employers in the region.

 Local residents, including high school students, will also be able to earn college credits that can be transferred to a four-year university at a fraction of their on-campus cost. Representing Potter County on the board are Commissioner Doug Morley (left) and Ed Pitchford (right), chief executive officer of Charles Cole Memorial Hospital.

It’s part of a broader effort, coordinated locally by the Potter County Education Council and the Potter County Commissioners, to give local job-seekers the skills and training they need to secure local jobs. Former Oswayo Valley School Superintendent Bob Wicker has been spearheading that initiative. He has been meeting with local employers large and small to assess their needs and craft training programs that prepare local residents to fill their jobs. Contrary to popular belief, Wicker said, many Potter County employers have job openings and others would be willing to hire locally if they could find qualified applicants.

A recent economic/employment profile of Potter, Cameron and five other counties reinforced the point. Susan Snelick, executive director of the North Central Workforce Investment Board, said the study showed that employers are frustrated by the lack of qualified job applicants. Employee turnover is a chronic problem. Many lack basic educational qualifications and skills. Absenteeism, tardiness and an inability to stay drug-free are chronic problems, Snelick noted. Many of the jobless who possess skills and work ethic do not apply for work because they’re getting by on unemployment compensation benefits.

The 100-page Workforce Investment Area Five-Year Plan was compiled to better direct government resources to address the economic and social challenges. It found that manufacturing jobs have been declining and are expected to fall even more. Decreases are also expected in the information sector, company management, government, retail, agriculture and utilities. Employment opportunities will grow in the oil and gas industries, finance, administrative support, waste management, real estate, tourism, health care and social assistance. Some 8.7 percent of the region’s adults hold bachelor degrees, compared to 16.1 percent statewide. It’s estimated that 63 percent of local jobs will require at least some college education by 2018.

BANK ROBBERY IN ELKLAND

BANK ROBBERY IN ELKLAND
Article by Lonny Frost

On Saturday, July 25, 2015, FIRST News Now received word that Citizens & Northern Bank in Elkland was locked down during the normal morning business hours due to a robbery.

FNN placed a call to the State Police Barracks in Mansfield to try and confirm the report of a possible robbery. State police simply stated that Elkland Borough Police would be handling this.

Elkland police has not responded to FNN's request for information at this time.

It has been said that there may be one in custody at this time, but again this story has not been confirmed by Elkland Borough Police or the bank branch.

As with any breaking news, details and information may not be available or 100% correct.

At this time there is very little information available as it is suspected that police are investigating.

If you have information please post a "Private Message" as to not compromise police investigation.

John F. "Mickey" McManigle, 89, of 166 West Fourth Street, Emporium, PA

John F. "Mickey" McManigle
John F. "Mickey" McManigle, 89, of 166 West Fourth Street, Emporium, PA. died at Penn Highlands DuBois, DuBois, PA on Sunday (July 19, 2015) night following a brief illness.
Mickey was born August 9, 1925 at the family home on West 6th Street, Emporium, PA. He was the second of eight children of the late John F. and Mariam Cooper McManigle. He was a life long Emporium resident who cherished his family and friends.

In 1945 he met Doris Pollard, a young waitress at the Cabin Kitchen. Doris became the love of his life and on April 1, 1950 they were married in the First Presbyterian Church, Emporium. They often joked that they married on April Fool’s day . . . just in case. They celebrated their 58th anniversary prior to her passing in 2008.
Korean War Veteran

Mickey graduated from Emporium High School in 1943. He served with the US Army during the Korean War.

Mickey worked at Sylvania for over 42 years as a journeyman (master) tool and die maker. He took great pride in building machines used in the production of picture tubes and other Sylvania products during the height of Sylvania’s popularity.

He worked as manager & president at Emporium Water Company. One of his proudest achievements was overseeing the design and construction of the filtration plant. For over 25 years he also served as the president of Cameron Land Development.

Mickey & Doris were charter members of the Emporium Country Club. Mickey was proud of Doris’s achievements, including 19 Club Championships, and was always eager to regale family and friends with the story of his own ‘march’ to the 1965 Fourth Flight Championship!

Mickey & Doris were winter residents of Cape Canaveral, Florida for over 25 years. They lived in the Villages of Seaport where they became life long friends with fellow ‘snow birds’ from around the United States and Canada. Mickey & Doris often shared how significantly these relationships enriched their lives. Mickey particularly enjoyed the daily 3-mile walk around the jetty and evening ‘happy hour’ with friends. In addition, Mickey was an ardent supporter of Cocoa Beach high school basketball, highlighted by travelling to a Cocoa playoff game on the team charter!

He was a member of the First Presbyterian Church, Emporium where he served as Trustee, Deacon & Financial Secretary. He was also an active member of the Cape Canaveral Christ Lutheran Church for over 20 years.

Mickey was a life member of the American Legion Olkosky-Jessop Post 194, a 50-year member of the Emporium Lodge #382, F.and A.M. & the Coudersport Consistory, and member of the Loyal Order Of Moose Lodge #368. Mickey was an avid outdoorsman and member of the Bucktail Rod & Gun Club. He was also a member of the Cameron County Historical Society.

He was a co-founder of the Emporium HOOP Club in Emporium where he served the organization as officer in many capacities. Years ago he was a Little League Baseball Manager and Boy Scouts of America Troop 52 Committeeman.

The bridge on Route 155 over the Allegheny River in Port Allegany Borough and Liberty Township, McKean County, is designated the Port Allegany Veterans Memorial Bridge. The bridge is dedicated in honor of both past and present residents serving in the United States Armed Forces.

The bridge on Route T-325 over the Allegheny River in Coudersport Borough, Potter County, is designated the Lt. William E. Daisley Jr. Memorial Bridge. Daisley was an outstanding scholar, role model and athlete at Coudersport Area High School who graduated with high honors from the U.S. Naval Academy. In March 1993, he was taking part in a training exercise off the coast of North Carolina, and his plane never returned. The wreckage was discovered later that day, but his remains were not recovered.
