He was a flooring specialist having designed and installed floors for numerous affluent clientele in mostly the Maryland area. 

In 2008, David retired and moved to Whitesville to be closer to family, where he also pursued his hobby of woodworking. Dave was prized by many for his words of wisdom, helping hand, and life philosophies. He was lovingly known to many as “Uncle Dave” and “Grandpa Dave”. His greatest love was his family.

Roulette Chemical Engine #1 updates with new rescue tools.

Roulette Chemical Engine #1 updates with new rescue tools.

A Representative from Genesis Rescue Tools arrived with our new set of tools. This set, is the first brand new Hydraulic Rescue Tools owned by the department. The first set ever purchased by the Department was a used set in 2000

Last year the Board of Directors, on a motion made by Board Member Jerry Johnson agreed to purchase new Hydraulic Rescue Tools to replace a very aged set. A committee consisting of Brad Tucker, Wade Sprankle, Jeff Fessenden, Dave Lacher spent hours demoing and comparing companies finally deciding on Genesis Rescue Tools. The membership following the recommendation of the committee agreed and the tools were purchased.

A big Thank You goes out to Bidwells Auto for allowing the department to use cars and the parking lot, Walt Miles salvage for the numerous cars and use of the parking lot, the 2014-2015 Board of Directors, the Hydraulic Rescue Tool Committee, and most importantly the Membership. Without your dedication the purchase of these tools would not be possible! Also Thank You to the community for supporting our fundraisers that make purchases like this possible. And a big thank you to The Fire Store our local Genesis dealer for the great customer service!

Again thank you to all those involved in this process,
Chief 46


One of the best things about living Roulette is our Fire Department and Ambulance Squad. Knowing that in an emergency, they will respond in only minutes with trained and competent personnel is reassuring, especially as we age and are more in need of services. In addition, we appreciate the mutual aid companies who have their back in Coudersport, Austin, Port Allegany and Shinglehouse. We are certainly fortunate to live in a community of dedicated volunteers. Don't forget to support them when they have fundraisers. And not to be forgotten are the Auxiliary who work in the kitchen for those fundraisers.

Throwback from 16 years ago, first set ever purchased and the first new set purchased. Brad Tucker, and Jeff Fessenden

Today Is National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day

Today is National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day (L.E.A.D.). On this day we show our support for our nation’s approximately 780,000 police officers who put a badge on each day, knowing they may face extremely dangerous situations while carrying out their duties. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) recognizes and thanks these brave men and women, including the Department’s frontline personnel, who protect and serve their communities to keep our Nation safe day after day.

DHS has a state-of-the-art training center, the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC), located in Glynco, Georgia, where in the men and women in blue learn the skills needed to do their job safely to ensure they make it home to their families each day.

Since 1970, FLETC has trained more than one million law enforcement professionals. FLETC’s mission is to train those who protect our homeland, including officers and agents who work for our more than 90 federal partner organization; state, local, campus and tribal law enforcement, and international law enforcement. All FLETC training strives to well equip every one of these individuals with the skills, tools and knowledge to protect and secure communities across our nation.

Today, DHS and FLETC encourage Americans to show their support of our law enforcement in one or more of the following ways:

Wear blue clothing in support of law enforcement
Send a card of support to your local police department or state agency
Share a positive story about a positive law enforcement experience on social media
Ask children in your community to write letters in support of law enforcement
Participate in Project Blue Light. Proudly display your blue light in support of law enforcement
Most importantly, if you see a police officer, thank a police officer

On Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, and every day, DHS supports and recognizes all those who stand on the front lines and continue to keep our homeland secure.

FRATERNAL ORDER OF POLICE – PENNSYLVANIA STATE LODGE
2949 N. Front St.
Harrisburg, PA 17110

PA FOP CALLS ON PENNSYLVANIANS TO CELEBRATE NATIONAL LAW ENFORCEMENT APPRECIATION DAY

The Fraternal Order of Police, Pennsylvania State Lodge today called on all Pennsylvanians to join them and law enforcement associations across America to celebrate National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day on Saturday, Jan. 9.

“It is essential that we all take the time to support the dedicated men and women in uniform who protect us,” said Les Neri, president of the Fraternal Order of Police, Pennsylvania State Lodge. “Law enforcement officials, along with their families, show bravery and sacrifice every day. That courage deserves national recognition.”

National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day grew out of negativity directed toward law enforcement nationally. There is a need to show law enforcement officers that people recognize the difficult career they have chosen in public service to us all.

On Jan. 9, we call our nation’s citizens to action in support of law enforcement. Individuals can show their support in a number of ways, including:
Change your profile picture on social media to support law enforcement.
See a police officer? Thank a police officer.
Wear blue clothing in support of law enforcement.
Send a card of support to your local police department or state agency.
Share a positive story about a positive law enforcement experience on social media.
Ask children in your community to write letters in support of law enforcement.
Participate in Project Blue Light. Proudly display your blue light in support of law enforcement.
Organize an event or a rally in support of your law enforcement officers.
Advertise your support through local media outlets/billboards.

“Police officers put their lives on the line for those in need every day,” Neri said. “They face violence and danger to serve and protect. They do their job, no matter the personal risk.”
The statistics are truly sobering. Each day 780,000 police officers across our country put a badge on and go to work knowing they may face extremely dangerous situations. On average, between 105 and 203 officers die in the line of duty each year; 50,000 officers are assaulted in the line of duty each year; and 14,000 officers are injured in the line of duty each year.

FERAL SWINE HUNTING TO CLOSE IN BUTLER COUNTY

Game Commission Executive Director orders temporary closure, effective Saturday afternoon.

When hunting hours close Saturday, hunters within Butler County no longer will be permitted to take feral swine.

Pennsylvania Game Commission Executive Director R. Matthew Hough has announced a temporary closure to feral swine hunting in Butler County, to become effective at the end of the hunting day on Saturday.

Feral swine are not native to Pennsylvania, but sometimes are found roaming freely on public and private lands. Because of the damage feral swine cause to the habitat upon which Pennsylvania’s native wildlife depends, licensed hunters statewide are permitted to take any feral swine they might encounter.

However, the same executive order that permits hunters to take feral swine also gives the Pennsylvania Game Commission authority to place a hold on the hunting of feral swine so as not to interfere with special trapping operations that typically are considered the most effective way to eradicate this nuisance animal species.

Hough has enacted this authority.

Trapping by authorized professionals only can occur from the end of the flintlock muzzleloader deer season to the start of spring turkey season, and from the close of the spring turkey season to the start of the archery deer season.

The flintlock muzzleloader season ends Saturday in Butler County, and at the close of hunting hours on Saturday, the temporary restrictions on hunting feral swine are to be begin.

When the special trapping effort comes to an end, and feral swine again may be hunted in Butler County, the Game Commission will announce the change by news release, and on its website, www.pgc.state.pa.us.

Philadelphia Police Officer Ambushed; Shoots Attacker In The Butt

Jonny Castro
8 hrs ·

Last night, you were stopped at the red light at 60th and Spruce. You were working solo, probably bored out of your mind because it was a quiet night. As the light turned green, you proceeded through the intersection. What you didn't see was a man approaching your driver side window with a fully loaded handgun by his side. Without warning or provocation, he raised his weapon and began firing into your vehicle. Shot after shot, bullets ripped through the driver side door. Relentlessly, he continued his assault and started to make his way closer: 9 feet. 6 feet. 3 feet. Until finally his pistol was inside the driver side window of your vehicle. He continued to squeeze off rounds at point blank range. I know this because I watched the surveillance video showing his assassination attempt. You ducked your head down at just the right moment that rounds actually missed your head by inches. 3 bullets tore into your arm, shattering the bone and severing an artery. Without hesitation, you fought your attacker almost instantly. You drew your service weapon and viciously returned fire. It was literally a fight for life and death. Your shots were fierce and accurate enough that he retreated. He was wounded but continued to fire as he fled. You exited your car and attempted to pursue this coward, but your gunshot wounds were too much. The blood poured out of your arm like a faucet and into the street. You hit the microphone on your radio "SHOTS FIRED! SHOTS FIRED! I'm shot, give me more units. 60th and Spruce. I'm bleeding profusely!" Every cop in the city and surrounding counties responded. I was only 2 minutes away, but it felt like it took me an hour. We almost crashed 3 separate times trying to get to you. Other officers (who are in my squad and that I'm damn proud of) chased after the shooter and caught him a block away, the smoking pistol still in his possession. 2 officers threw you in their car and rushed you to Presbyterian hospital where their trauma unit and surgeons worked through the night to stop the bleeding.

After standing out on that crime scene. After seeing the sea of spent shell casings and the steaming bullet holes hammered into your car door. After watching the surveillance video and replaying the scenario over and over again in my head, you definitely shouldn't be here right now. It should have been 100 times worse. Not many people would have survived an ambush like that. He got the drop on you and had every intention of killing a cop. Whether it was your training, his lack of training, some divine intervention or a combination of all 3; It simply wasn't your time. God was watching over you. You did great last night. You made the 18th district and the entire Department proud of you. You are a hero. January 7th will forever be your alive day. Rest up Jesse Hartnett

He was an avid hunter, especially deer and turkey hunting. He enjoyed every type of fishing, loved to tinker with his guns, and was always willing to help anyone with their guns.

Surviving besides his wife are twelve children: Donald, Larry Keyser Conkey, John (Lisa) Keyser, Clair O.

Mary was born in Colegrove, PA, on July 30 1912, the daughter of the late Lawrence and Bessie Heinemann Scanlan.

Peter F. McCoy III, age 65, Bradford, PA

Peter F. McCoy III
Peter F. McCoy III, age 65, died New Year’s Day, 2016 at the Bradford Manor where he resided for the past several weeks. A 13-year cancer survivor, he fought a valiant and courageous battle with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and Leukemia. 

A lifelong Bradford resident, he was born June 15, 1950, son of the late Peter F. McCoy Jr., who died in 1977, and Dorothea B. McCoy who died in 2008. A 1968 graduate of Bradford Area High School, Peter also graduated from St. Bonaventure University earning both his Bachelor and Master’s degrees in education. 

He enjoyed a 27 year teaching career at Ellicottville Central School, Ellicottville, NY, retiring in 2002 due to disability.

Prior to his illness, he was also a partner with his mother in the operation of 12 apartments in five buildings in the Bradford area. Peter was an avid sailor and crewed many summers in 20-foot class one-design sailboat races at Chautauqua Lake. He once camped and canoed the length of the Allegheny River from the headwaters to Pittsburgh. His newest enjoyment was riding his Can-Am motorcycle. He was a lifelong member of St. Bernard’s Roman Catholic Church and a member of the Bradford Township Lion’s Club. A very generous man, who put the welfare of others ahead of himself, Peter once voluntarily paid out thousands of dollars for a full set of dentures for a person he saw struggling to eat at the Friendship Table. Peter’s generosity was taken advantage of at times, but he never lost faith in humanity.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by two sisters, Mary Janice McCarthy in 1996, and Martha Lou Bouchard in 2009 and a brother-in-law Robert Lee Rocheleau in 2007.

Survivors include a sister Virginia Rocheleau of San Diego, CA, a brother Michael (Diane) McCoy of Mayville, NY, two brothers-in-law, Marcian (Cheryl) Bouchard of Washington, NC, and Terrence McCarthy of Bay Village, OH, eight nieces and nephews and many great nieces and great nephews. Survivors also include his good friends Gisele Magnella, Peter Peckyno, John Coder, Rick Frederick, Gary Bentley and Dan Costello who faithfully drove him to his chemo and treatments, and all his many friends at Derrick City Diner who supported him to the end.

There will be no visitation. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Saturday, Jan. 16, 2016 at 11:00 AM at St. Bernard Catholic Church, with the Rev. Raymond Gramata as celebrant.

Inurnment is to immediately follow at St. Bernard Cemetery.

Memorial gifts, if desired, may be made to St. Bernard Elementary & Middle School, 450 West Washington St, Bradford, PA 16701.

Arrangements have been entrusted to the care of the Mascho Funeral Home, Inc.

Working House Fire In Westfield

At 3:01 PM on Friday, Westfield & Clymer have been dispatched to 162 Woodlawn Drive in Westfield for a report of a house fire.

Westfield command reports flames showing, extending into the attic. 

3:05 PM--Dispatched Knoxville full company, Harrison Township with one engine to scene. 

3:23 PM--Ulysses engine to cover Westfield station, Galeton to cover Clymer station.


Crary HoseCompany added 11 new photos — with Daniel Wanner and Shawn Seeley.
3:50 PM--Overhaul operation in progress. 
Crary HoseCompany added 6 new photos — with Shawn Seeley.
All fire crews were cleared around 4:30PM.
FNN was told that three family members were left homeless. Family member Mae Austin told FNN that the ranch style home with attached garage belonged to her mother, Geraldine C. Carl and her step-father, Charles R. Carl, Sr. Also living in the home with the couple was their grandson, Shawn P. Baker. Both Geraldine and Charles Carl have health problems, but no one in the family were injured.
There was insurance on the home, but at this time it is unknown what the insurance will cover. In most cases, insurance seems to never cover the complete loss of a home and its contents.
FNN will provide further updates as they become available. Also this family is going to need assistance and when that information becomes available they will be listed here.
Update from Chief 5
Upon arrival we had smoke showing from the eaves and flames showing around the chimney on the backside of the residence. The fire was quickly extending into the attic of the single story ranch home with attached garage. 

Crews extinguished the flames on the exterior wall and gained access to the attic to stop the fire there. Ladder 5-9 made easy work of ventilating the structure. 

The fire was brought under control within 30 minutes and declared out a little over an hour after arrival. The Red Cross was contacted to provide assistance. 

Thank you to Clymer, Knoxville and Harrison Valley crews for assistance on scene. Also thank you to Tri-Town (Ulysses) for standing by at our station. 

Thank you to the Crary Hose Auxiliary for providing refreshments.

PSUD Women Earn Road Win

The Penn State DuBois Women’s Basketball team picked up their second road victory in a row as they beat Westmoreland CCC (7-6) by the score of 70-53 Thursday night. PSUD improves to (4-7) on the season with the win.

DuBois held a two-point lead at the end of the first quarter 18-16. But they got some breathing room, thanks to a strong defensive effort, by holding WCCC to just two points in the second quarter and building a 30-18 halftime lead. PSUD went on to control the second half by outscoring WCCC 40-35 to pick up the win.

“We started playing well as a team right before the semester break and have picked right up where we left off in December. Westmoreland is a really good team so it makes this win even more impressive,” stated Coach Pat Lewis. “The young ladies are working hard at practice and that’s paying off right now.”

Ashley Brown (Otto Eldred) 18 points and 10 rebounds and Grace Earle (Cowanesque Valley) 11 points and 10 rebounds both posted double-doubles. Also in double figures were Melody Young (Otto Eldred) 14 points and Latascia Shadle (Galeton) 12 points. Kaelyn Gruver (Redbank Valley) hauled in 7 rebounds and blocked 3 shots.

PSUD return to action on Tuesday, January 12th, at home against conference rival Penn State Greater Allegany. Tipoff is at 6:00.

Schools, Human Services Receiving Much-Needed Funds 


 
Following last week’s signing of a partial state budget, six months’ worth of much-needed funding is on its way to schools, counties and human service agencies across the Commonwealth.

In case you missed last week’s update because of the busy holiday season, the General Assembly approved and sent to the governor’s desk a $30.3 billion budget which funds the core functions of government AND provides an overall $400 million increase in funding for education.

Gov. Tom Wolf, who is still advocating for even higher spending and increases in the state sales or income taxes – or both – approved a substantial portion of the budget just after Christmas, but he opted to veto/cut about $7 billion in funding. That includes $3 billion for public education, as well as funding for important health programs, such as critical access hospitals, and a variety of agriculture-related programs, including hardwoods research and promotion.

It appears the governor will continue his push to increase taxes as part of this year’s budget. He is slated to offer his 2016-17 budget proposal to a joint session of the General Assembly on Tuesday, Feb. 9.
           

Denton Hill State Park Study Results to be Outlined at Jan. 20 Open House
 
The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) will hold a public open house on Wednesday, Jan. 20, at Denton Hill State Park to discuss results of a feasibility study about future uses of the park. The park has been closed since November 2014 when the private operator determined it was no longer able to continue operations.

The open house will be held from 6:30-8 p.m. at the Denton Hill Ski Lodge. Issues to be discussed include data and information gathered regarding the current condition of the park infrastructure; market analysis for economic viability of ski operations; and public input received through a survey regarding four-season recreational opportunities at Denton Hill.

In the event of bad weather, the open house will be moved to Wednesday, Jan. 27.

Denton Hill is a valuable asset to our region, and I am hopeful the study results will help guide the park to a brighter future.
 

New Law Will Help Families to Earn Way Out of Poverty
 
Under a new law signed in December, families with lower incomes who rely on child care subsidies won’t be financially penalized for working more hours or taking better jobs with higher pay.

As part of Act 92 of 2015, Pennsylvania’s child care benefits structure has been reformed to help families retain temporary assistance, while they work to achieve economic self-reliance.

Before the new law, families who earned more money eventually reached a so-called “benefits cliff” at which even a slight increase in their income made them completely ineligible for services worth substantially more than the potential income increase, thereby discouraging them from accepting raises or working additional hours.

Now, as parents earn additional income, their co-payments will increase, rather than their benefits being completely cut off. By enabling them to grow their income and work experience, families will ultimately be able to support the cost of child care entirely.
  

Linking Veterans with Programs, Services

The state Department of Military and Veterans Affairs is encouraging the state’s veterans to register with a new online Pennsylvania Veterans Registry at www.register.dmva.pa.gov.

The Pennsylvania Veterans Registry is an online application that allows veterans to request information related to valuable state benefits, programs and services offered by the agency.

The registry features responsive design technology to make it accessible on mobile devices and computers. A registrant’s information will be shared with the appropriate county Veterans Affairs Office and other relevant Commonwealth agencies to facilitate local connections that aid in providing services to the veteran.

To further assist veterans, I am now hosting a veterans service representative at each of my three local offices to help with issues such as compensation, education, pension, health care and death benefits. The schedule is as follows:
  • Kane – Monday, Jan. 11, 1-3 p.m. Melissa Davis of the VFW will be available. No appointment necessary. She will also be in the Kane office on Monday, Feb. 1; Monday, March 7; and Monday, April 4.
  • Coudersport – Thursday, Jan. 28, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dan Falls of the American Legion will be available. Appointments are required and may be made by calling the office at 814-274-9769.
  • Bradford – Monday, Feb. 8, 1-3 p.m. Melissa Davis of the VFW will be available. No appointment necessary. She will also be in the Bradford office on Monday, March 14, and Monday, April 11.

The latest news from the State Capitol 

The House will return to session this coming week and vote to approve state funding for Penn State, the University of Pittsburgh, Temple University, Lincoln University and the University of Pennsylvania.

The rules of the General Assembly require a two-thirds majority vote in order for these bills to pass. In other words, members on both sides of the aisle will have to vote in favor of sending money to these schools in order to move the bills to Gov. Tom Wolf’s desk.

I voted to fund these institutions when the bills were considered in late June; however, the legislation failed when it did not receive the necessary two-thirds majority.
