Galeton Weather report for August 2014

Galeton Weather report for August 2014

August 2014 was a fairly typical weather month for Galeton, although a bit on the cool side. The month started out cool and sunny, then stayed that way until the 23rd. During the first three weeks we did have some showers on several days. Some of the showers were quite significant, especially during thunderstorms. On the 3rd and 4th we received .62", then on the 12th through the 14th we got 1.61". The greatest amount of rain fell from the 17th through the 20th when we received 3.02". Needless to say, that time frame was cool and wet. From the 7th through the 15th we did have some nice sunny days. Remember sunny afternoons heat up the atmosphere which produces thunderstorms. The substantial weather event of the month occurred on the 21st. The afternoon started out sunny and warm, then around 4 PM the sky darkened and we were hit with a severe thunderstorm which produced hail, lightning and strong winds. I have never seen a hail storm like that in Galeton. The ground was covered with 13/4" hail. We saved some hail in our freezer. Leaves were shredded from the trees and a funnel cloud was seen in the east side of town. Many large trees were down, with one tree going through the roof of a Clintontown house. It was quite a local storm with outlying areas having very little wind and rain and even in Galeton the south western areas were quiet.

For the month we received 5.82" of rain. Last year we received 3.00". We had 5 thunderstorms, hail on 1 day along with damaging winds. We had only 5 mornings without fog. It is good to note, that with all of the above, from the 24th through the 30th we had no rain and beautiful sunny days and cool nights for sleeping. We did have several nights with mid 40 degree readings.

The average high temperature for August is 84 degrees with the average low at 61 degrees and 12 rainy days. This year we had 13 rainy days. The record high was 103 degrees in 2001 and the record low is 39 in 1982.

The leaves are starting to turn which indicates Falls is just three weeks away.

First Presbyterian and Saint Paul’s Lutheran Church of Galeton, 8-31-14

First Presbyterian and Saint Paul’s Lutheran Church of Galeton, 8-31-14

by Martha Pennell,
 mpennell@northernpottersd.org

Monthly rehearsal for the choir of First Presbyterian Church will begin on Saturday, September 6th, at 10:15 am, in the Christian Education building. All interested singers are welcome! 

Pastor Tom’s Communicants Class will meet September 7th at 10:40 am, after worship at Saint Paul’s Lutheran Church. 

A new adult Bible study, the Ten Loves of God, also begins after worship that day at Saint Paul’s Lutheran Church. 

At First Presbyterian Church the Board of Deacons will meet after worship on September 7th, and at 5:30 pm the Fellowship dinner of the two congregations will be held at the Christian Education building of First Presbyterian Church. 

Germania Luncheon Club meets at noon on Wednesday, September 10th, at Saint Paul’s Lutheran Church. 

 Pastor Tom’s sermon, “Help Wanted,” was based on Matthew 16: 21-28. 

Jesus told his disciples he would be killed. When Peter could not accept it, Jesus told Peter he was on the side of man, rather than on the side of God. Peter did not want to give up the crowds or think about sacrifice, according to Pastor Tom. 

 Jesus said that the hard way is the way of life; whoever loses his life will find it. He said, “Take up your cross and follow me.” 

Pastor Tom told us to feed the hungry, give children an honored position, and offer Christ to the community. 

Take up the cross; it is the way of the cross that brings salvation to the world. We find life when we take up the cross, Pastor Tom reiterated. 

Help Wanted—God’s servants receive nominal pay with eternal benefits!

Dirt/Gravel Road Project Meeting Slated Sept. 2

Dirt/Gravel Road Project 
Meeting Slated Sept. 2

Potter County Today
dirtgravelroadAdditional dirt and gravel roads in Potter County are scheduled for upgrading in the coming months. Potter County Conservation District (PCCD) will hold a public meeting at 5:30 pm on Tuesday, Sept. 2, at its office in the Coudersport Industrial Park to review the program.

The district has appointed a low-volume, dirt and gravel road quality assurance board to assist in selecting which roads qualify for the limited funding that’s available. The program received a boost in the State Transportation Bill signed into law last year. That far-reaching legislation pumps thousands of dollars toward the region for improved maintenance of dirt and gravel roads, with a goal of limiting damage to area rivers and streams. Sediment is a significant stream pollution problem. It fills in channels, smothering trout eggs and destroying aquatic insect habitat. Funding for unpaved roads in Pennsylvania has grown from $5 million annually to $35 million for each of the next five years.

In the past, funding shortages have created a backlog of local stream protection projects in the region. Still, for more than 15 years the program has kept thousands of tons of sediment from entering prime trout streams. Potter County Conservation District recently spearheaded conservation and stabilization projects on the West Branch of Dingman Run in Eulalia Township, and on Jesse’s Road in Sharon Township, each at a cost of $50,000.

The Sept. 2 meeting will include a review of applications for the expanded program. Adam Causer recently joined PCCD as in a new position of low-volume, dirt and gravel road specialist. District Manager Chris Mitterer said staffers Glenn Dunn II and Rob Thompson will remain involved in the project during the transition. More information is available at 274-8522.

Potter County is considered the birthplace of the statewide initiative. In 1990, members of the God’s Country Chapter of Trout Unlimited hosted a meeting at Big Moore’s Run Lodge to draw attention to the worsening erosion and sedimentation problem. Less than three years later, PennDOT helped to organize a volunteer task force to devise road maintenance standards and techniques for correcting the excessive sedimentation problems. Penn State graduate students produced a map of every dirt and gravel road near an exceptional value or high quality cold water fishery. Trained volunteers from local TU chapters, including Potter County, assisted by surveying their local streams.

By 1996, more than 700 “sediment hotspots” were identified statewide. Finally, in April 1997, the legislature passed Act 3, providing funds to improve and maintain dirt and gravel roads. Since that time, more than 2,300 projects have been funded. An estimated 7,500 new drainage and stream pipes have been installed. Close to 600 miles of driving service aggregate has been placed, and upwards of 200 miles of road ditch and banks have been stabilized.

Fire and Ambulance Grant Applications Available Soon, Says Causer

Fire and Ambulance Grant Applications Available Soon, Says Causer

HARRISBURG – Rep. Martin Causer (R-Turtlepoint) today announced applications for the 2014-15 Fire Company and Volunteer Ambulance Service Grant Program (FCVASGP) will be available to area emergency response organizations starting on Wednesday, Sept. 3.

The program is funded through state gaming proceeds.

“Since its inception, the grant program has provided more than $3.6 million in funding to fire and ambulance companies in the three-county area,” Causer said. “This program is an important investment in the safety of our citizens and our communities.”

Grants may be used for construction or renovation of a unit’s station, the purchase or repair of equipment, training or debt reduction. The maximum grant amount is $15,000 for fire companies and $10,000 for volunteer ambulance services. A total of $30 million will be awarded through the program.

Grants to eligible fire companies will be contingent on their agreeing to participate in and report information using the Pennsylvania Fire Information Reporting System (PennFIRS).

The application period will close at 4 p.m. on Oct. 17.

For more information, visit Causer’s website at RepCauser.com and click on “Fire and Ambulance Grants.”

• JOE MARTIN REDEEMS HIMSELF AT MCKEAN WITH 1ST CAREER SWEENEY RUSH LATE MODEL TOUR WIN; 43 DRIVERS TAKE HOME OVER $30,000 IN PRIZES FOR MFG NIGHT

By Mike Leone | August 30, 2014

(East Smethport, PA)…The Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Dirt Late Model Touring Series returned to McKean County Raceway on Saturday night for the second visit of the 2014 season as part of the "$50,000 of Summer Blowout" presented by Sunoco Race Fuels.

A season high 43 cars from all over Pennsylvania, New York, Ohio, West Virginia, Maryland, and Ontario, Canada were on hand for the third annual "Manufacturers Night", but first ever at McKean. Each driver took home a minimum of two prizes and many received three or four as over $30,000 in prizes were distributed! Bruno Mowery won the grand prize of a EF40000DE/D Yamaha Electric Start Generator and wheel kit, the "all-star utility infielder" of the Yamaha generator team from Alternative Power Sources valued at approximately $2,200! A complete list of winners will be released in the near future.

Last year, Joe Martin appeared headed to victory in a Sweeney Tour event at McKean after a dominating performance before getting into the wall in the closing laps. On Saturday, Martin rebounded from the next-to-last pill drawn for an 11th place heat race starting spot as he then earned a fifth place feature starting spot. Martin then made some good moves on two restarts and tracked down race-long leader Jason Knowles for the $1,500 victory- his first of his career in the Sweeney RUSH Tour!

DEP: 35 Water Wells in McKean County Contaminated by Oil, Gas Prospecting

DEP: 35 Water Wells in McKean County Contaminated by Oil, Gas Prospecting

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection has released details of 243 cases where companies prospecting for oil or gas contaminated private drinking water wells – and 35 of those are in McKean County. DEP posted online links to the documents after the agency conducted what it called a “thorough review” of paper files stored among its regional offices. 

Pennsylvania’s auditor general said in a report last month that DEP’s system for handling complaints “was woefully inadequate” and that investigators could not even determine whether all complaints were actually entered into a reporting system. DEP hasn’t issued a statement yet. 

While most of the incidents in McKean County were in Bradford Township between 2008 and 2010, they were also reported in Foster, Corydon, Lafayette and Hamilton townships.
The most recent in Foster Township was 366 days ago. The most recent in Lafayette Township was in November. 

The problems listed in the documents include methane gas contamination, spills of wastewater and other pollutants, and wells that went dry or were otherwise undrinkable. Some of the problems were temporary, but the names of landowners were redacted, so it wasn’t clear if the problems were resolved to their satisfaction. Other complaints are still being investigated.
