Walk in Penn’s Woods

Pennsylvania literally means Penn’s Woods. Penn’s Woods is one of the state’s prized Crown Jewels. Not only does it provide a significant timber resource, but it provides incalculable value as a water resource, pollution filter, carbon store, wildlife habitat and biodiversity reserve, and of course a great source of recreational and aesthetic enjoyment. It is also a resource challenged by invasive plants and diseases, mismanagement, development pressure, and legacy issues.

As a statewide effort to build appreciation for forests, the people who care for them, and the importance of tending them, the ‘Walk in Penn’s Woods’ is a day with organized woods walks in each Pennsylvania county. Anticipated to become an annual event on the first Sunday in October, this inaugural Walk in Penn’s Woods will take place this year on October 1, 2017.

In McKean County, a woods walk is happening at the Donald J. Comes Natural Resources Learning Center, located on Rt. 46 four miles south of Smethport and one mile north of Crosby. From 1:00 to 3:30, join us for a day in the woods and enjoy a guided walk to learn about the history of the forest and the trees, plants, and wildlife in our area. Forestry professionals will also be on hand to discuss what you can do to protect and manage the forest. Our event is one of over 60 happening across the state.

For more information, contact Stephanie Hinz at Penn State Extension (887-5613) or Jody Groshek at the McKean County Conservation District (887-4001).

Harold McConaghay attended the meeting to inform Council that all the trees hanging onto Sherman Street on Brewery Hill is a dangerous situation especially when there is church in the old Community Building and all the cars are parked up the hill. It was noted that the crew is currently trimming around town and will soon be to Clintontown, but that they will be told to make this a priority.

Jim Cimino attended the meeting to inform Council of all the speeding that is taking place on upper Germania Street. He said there are many little children that play on that street now and it is dangerous. He wondered if the speed limit could be reduced or possibly patrolled more often. Chief Brackman said that he would see to the problem.

Drew Stultz was asked to attend the meeting so that he could discuss the situation of his garage with Council. It has been almost a year since he purchased the property and he was given a chance to take care of the garage. It is a dangerous structure with the roof remaining as it is. He was told that if he could at least remove the remaining roof for now that it would be in compliance with the ordinance as far as safety goes, then would be given more time to work on the rest of the repairs.

Randy Ferguson attended the meeting to discuss his situation of having received a letter from the Code Officer to remove all the junk cars on his property on West Street. After a very lengthy discussion it was left that he is to remove the cars as originally instructed.

Rita Randolph attended the meeting as an interested citizen that might be purchasing property in the Borough. She was here to observe.


The Mayor only had one item and that was concerning the letter that he received from the PA Route 6 Alliance on the façade grant that was obtained for businesses on Route 6 in the Borough if interested. It is great and Council hopes that businesses are able to take advantage of it.


Chief Brackman presented his monthly report:

Traffic citations – 24
Traffic warnings – 21

The new 5-year agility agreement with PennDot was presented. The Borough will receive $1,274.23/yr. for the next 5 years in return for our crew doing winter maintenance on the state roads in the Borough which are Germania Street, Union Street, Fifth Street and Bridge Street. A motion was made by Doug Droppa, seconded by Rob Pflug entering into this new 5 year agreement with PennDot. All were in favor, motion carried.

The secretary told Council that she heard from White’s Garage regarding the roller. They said that the engine is shot. A used engine was researched on EBAY and also a new one from a Deutz parts dealer. A new one costs approx. $6,900.00 plus labor and a used one was around $3500.00 but was not in very good condition. Council said to go with a new one and then get a quote for the engine and labor for the next meeting.


Rob Pflug presented a sample ordinance from Pike Township that pertains to the guidelines of putting in a new driveway. He would like the members to review it and then discuss it at the next meeting.


The secretary presented a poll that was taken by Beth Lounsbury on School Street of all the residents from the section of Maple Ave. to Oak Street that would be affected by making it a One-way street. All residents said “No” with the exception of one that was “No Comment” to making it a one way street. Council agreed to table the subject.


The secretary presented the 2018 Minimum Municipal Obligation for the pension plans. The Police MMO is $35,010 and the Municipal Employees MMO is $19,841. A part of each MMO will be paid by State Aid monies.
A motion was made by Rob Pflug, seconded by Doug Droppa accepting the 2018 MMOs for the pension plans as presented. All were in favor, motion carried.

Rob Pflug gave an overview of the previous night’s Authority meeting.

-CDBG monies for the sewer plant project is not looking promising for us. Tony and Tom are attended the public meeting to see who receives the grant.
-The Authority made a motion to remove the 10% penalty on the total water and sewer amount due and went back to just penalizing the current monthly bill the 10%.
-A salesman for re-pipe liner attended the meeting to discuss this method instead of replacing the current transmission line at the Wetmore. Nothing was decided yet because the Authority needs a cost on this method and on the crew putting in a new line to compare.
-The Authority’s Long Term Control Plan is still in compliance but needs a few revisions. Out engineers will be working on that.


A motion was made by Joe Petrenscik, seconded by Rob Pflug to pay the bills for the month of September. All were in favor, motion carried.


A motion was made by Joe Petrenscik, seconded by Denny Dean to adjourn. All were in favor, motion carried. The meeting was adjourned at 9:15 PM. The next regular meeting will be October 11, 2017.

Meeting On Potter County Human Services

Hundreds of people are directly affected by programs offered by Potter County Human Services (PCHS), but few take the opportunity to provide input on how those services are delivered. 

An Advisory Board that’s in place to accommodate public comments and suggestions will hold its next meeting on Thursday, Sept. 21, at 5:30 pm in the PCHS building at Roulette. PCHS operates programs for victims of alcoholism and other drug abuse, older citizens, the mentally ill, children who are at risk, and the intellectually disabled. Advisory board members are appointed by the Potter County Board of Commissioners. Anyone interested in being considered for appointment to the board should contact the Commissioners Office at 274-8290, extension 207.

During the board’s most recent meeting, members reviewed the Children & Youth Services Department, which experienced a decrease from 77 abuse reports in 2015 to 65 last year. Some of the cases that were investigated were determined to be unsubstantiated, according to director Joy Glassmire. This could be the result of misinformation, false reporting/retaliation, the application of discipline that did not meet the criteria for abuse, or other factors. Glassmire discussed many other elements of the C&YS program that support the safety and well-being of Potter County’s children and she complimented her staff for its dedication to that mission.

Also at the most recent meeting, members discussed changes in the Medical Assistance Transportation Program and other transportation challenges that are inherent in a rural, low-population county. There was also discussion of trends in drug and alcohol abuse services.

Members attending were Susan Valentine, Bob Wicker, Norman Weeks and LeAnne Brodhun.

Those interested in learning more are invited to attend a public meeting at 10 am Wednesday, Sept. 20, at the Gunzburger Building in Coudersport.

“To attract visitors and most other kinds of investment, communities need to appear welcoming,” said Pa. Wilds Center executive director Ta Enos. “This program helps communities achieve that.” 

Eligible types of restoration activities include design assistance, paint, signs and repair or replacement of awnings. More information is available from the Pennsylvania Route 6 Alliance office in Galeton, telephone 814-435-7706.

Coudersport Rotary Club News – September 19, 2017

L-R- Ruth Ellen Moore Sallade, President, Coudersport Rotary Club ; Ms. Christina Fink, Guest Speaker
President, Ruth Ellen Moore Sallade introduced her guest speaker, Christina Fink. Ms. Fink is a John Maxwell certified coach, teacher, and speaker. She offers Workshop/Seminars that will empower personal and professional growth. 

Services offered include, Mastermind Groups; Coaching; Keynote speaker; Halfday and Fullday Workshops/Seminar, and In-House Corporate Training. Ms. Fink stated that “Everyone Communicates, Few Comment”. Connecting increases ones influence in every situation. Learning to identify with people and relate to others is essential in ones influence with them. One needs to be a successful leader, and to do that one needs to learn to communicate in a way that connects with others. If you can connect with others –one-on-one, in groups and with an audience-your sense of community improves, your ability to create teamwork increases, and your influence skyrockets. People who connect with others have better relationships, experience less conflict and get more things done than those who cannot communicate.

Ms. Fink received her teaching in Elementary Education from Houghton College in Western New York. She then began assisting her husband in and managing his Multidisciplinary Clinic. This ultimately led her to her own business, Delightful Living. This role allowed her to sharpen her skills at speaking, teaching, guiding and encouraging her clients in achieving healthy lives. Using the JMT methods of Leadership Training Christina will help individuals grow personally and professionally. Many thanks to Christina Fink for a fun-filled, informative program.
