Michele Gledhill of Austin Seeking The Position of Potter County Auditor In May 19th Primary Election
Before my long stretch at the bank, I began my working career at Cole Memorial Hospital in the Medical Records Department, moving on to secretary for the District Attorney, Thur Young and ending up as a secretary at Emporium Specialties Co., Inc.
While working at the bank, I held other part-time positions which included bookkeeper for Cussins Plumbing, bookkeeper for VFW Post 7810, Secretary/Treasurer for the Austin Borough, Volleyball and Basketball Coach, and I am the local AVON Representative. I am also a Notary Public.
My volunteer work includes: Treasurer for the EO Austin Home/Historical Society, Treasurer for Forest Hill Cemetery, and Assistant Treasurer for Austin United Methodist Church (which I audited the books for several years). I was also Treasurer of the Austin Baseball Association.
I enjoy spending time with my two beautiful grandchildren, hiking the Potter County hills, flower gardening, and hunting with my family.
I bring with me many years of accounting experience and feel qualified for the Auditor position. Please let me work for you, the people of Potter County, and I promise not to let you down.

|McGuyver, frolicking on the Tom Leete Nature Trail.|
One man had a vision for the trail which he occasionally shared with friends. Tom Leete passed away in 2014, but that vision endures.
With the support of Coudersport Borough, a network of individuals with ownership stakes, Potter County Conservation District, Coudersport Rotary, Potter County Conservation District, Potter County Planning Department and other partners, the Allegheny-Susquehannock Trail Group has been formed to make that vision a reality.
They’re looking for immediate financial help and other support for a project that they see as ambitious, but achievable if approached in increments. Supporters say it has potential to bring lasting recreational, educational and economic benefits to the community.
Coudersport Borough Council got the ball rolling by designating the right-of-way as the Tom Leete Nature Trail. A representative from the Pa. Dept. of Conservation and Natural Resources attended a recent planning meeting and discussed options for state funding, as long as the group’s plan is well-thought-out and meets state criteria. Coudersport Rotary Club has agreed to take on the project, under the leadership of president-elect Walter Baker and in partnership with the Allegheny-Susquehannock Trail Group and Coudersport Borough.
Coudersport Rotary Club kicked off the fundraising with a $500 donation and established a repository under the name Coudersport Trail at Northwest Savings Bank. Donations should be given to Walter Baker no later than April 10 at the Maple Tree Restaurant, 127 N. Main St., Coudersport PA 16915. He can be reached for more information at 814-274-0704.
Leete also recognized the potential for linking the railroad grade to other assets -- Coudersport Borough’s Mitchell Park and Public Library as well as the business district on the western end, and another potential trail network leading eastward from Mapleview to Sweden Valley and beyond.
“It’s our intention to make Tom’s vision a reality with an eye toward long-range development in realistic increments,” Baker said. “The trail is currently used without permission for hiking, snowmobiling, all-terrain vehicle riding and other uses. Unlimited use of the right-of-way has resulted in surface damage, erosion and sedimentation problems, and safety concerns. It is our intention to improve and restore the trail surface, address its drainage issues, and make it a safer and more controlled environment.”
As developments unfold, the two-mile section could become a key link to a broader regional trail network encompassing the Susquehannock Trail System, Denton Hill State Park, Cherry Springs State Park and other assets.

HARRISBURG, PA -- In an effort to increase efficiency and consistency, the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) now collects natural gas production data from operators of unconventional natural gas wells on a monthly basis. Production data was previously reported on a semi-annual basis every February and August.
"This increase in production reporting will advance our efforts to promote responsible drilling in Pennsylvania," Acting DEP Secretary John Quigley said. "By requiring drillers to report their production on a more frequent basis, we will increase efficiency and consistency in reporting this vital data set."
The Unconventional Well Report Act, passed by the General Assembly on October 22, 2014, requires operators of unconventional wells to supply monthly gas production data to DEP. This requirement took effect in the beginning of this year, with January's production data due by midnight on March 31. All subsequent months' production data will be due 45 days after the end of the month of production. The February 2015 monthly production report is due no later than April 14.
As of the March 31 deadline, 80 percent of operators reported their production for January. The operators that met the deadline represent 99.5 percent of unconventional natural gas wells in Pennsylvania.
DEP conducts data verification to ensure that required data is submitted on time and that no gross errors are identified. DEP conducts compliance oversight of operators who fail to comply with the reporting requirements.
Production data is self-reported to DEP by operators and reported data are submitted to DEP electronically. As soon as it is submitted, production data is available on DEP's Oil and Gas Reporting website.
The act did not affect the frequency of production reporting for operators of conventional wells. Conventional well operators will continue to report their production data on an annual basis.
For more information, or to view the production data, visit www.dep.state.pa.us and click the "Gas Production Reports" button.

He was selected through a series of highly competitive auditions at the district and regional levels to participate in the 2015 Pennsylvania Music Educators Association All-State Chorus.
Last week, Gabe joined 240 of the best vocalists from across the state in Hershey, PA for three days of intense rehearsals under the direction of guest conductor Major Daniel Toven of the US Army. Their hard work culminated in a concert on March 28th at Hershey Theatre.
Only a tiny percentage of the students who begin the audition process achieve the ultimate goal of All-State Chorus. Being selected in both 2013 and 2015 for this honor is a significant accomplishment and a testament not only to Gabe’s exceptional talent, but also to his high level of self-motivation and dedication.
Gabe is the son of Bill and Nancy Trimbur and plans to pursue a degree in Musical Theater after graduation.

Thompson Issues Statement Following U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Decision to List Northern Long-Eared Bat as Threatened
Decision Lists Species as Threatened Under an Interim 4(d) Rule
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Representative Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-05) issued this statement following the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s (FWS) decision to list the Northern Long-Eared Bat (NLEB) as threatened under the Endangered Species Act (ESA):
“The ruling announced today by the Fish and Wildlife Service does nothing to clarify which activities would be exempt under this interim rule. With no exemptions for activities unrelated to population losses, this broad listing will have significant consequences for a wide range of economic sectors across Pennsylvania, as well as the additional 38 states.
Rather than locking up lands and impeding commerce, the Service needs to go back to the drawing board and focus on new ways to treat and contain the spread of the real issue facing the Northern Long-Eared Bat, White Nose Syndrome.”
The Fish & Wildlife Service has repeatedly acknowledged that White Nose Syndrome (WNS) is the greatest lone cause of population losses for the NLEB, yet the proposed rule only provides exemptions for a limited number of forest management activities. As such, Thompson has called for activities such as broad forest management, timber harvesting, oil and gas development, mining, agriculture, and construction of commercial and residential buildings to be given the proper flexibility and exemptions.
Thompson has formally weighed in twice with both the Department of Interior and the Fish & Wildlife Service. Both letters, signed May 14, 2014 and March, 13, 2015, call on the Fish & Wildlife Service to provide necessary flexibility with the Service’s proposal to list the Northern Long-Eared Bat under the ESA. On September 8, 2014, Thompson also participated in a field hearing in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, on the proposed listing held by the House Natural Resources Committee.

Asher will speak at 7 p.m. in the Harriett B. Wick Chapel on campus. The event is free and open to the public, but reservations are requested. To make a reservation, contact Dr. Wayne Brinda, associate professor of education, at email@example.com.
During his visit to Bradford, Asher will visit students from St. Bernard and Floyd C. Fretz Middle Schools and Bradford Area High School and dine with winners of an essay contest about bullying and their parents. His visit is co-sponsored by the university’s education program, its Education Club, the Bradford Area Public Library and Bradford Area School District.
Prior to Asher’s public appearance, Sarah Schreiber, a psychologist with the school district, will lead a discussion at 5:30 p.m. on “Building Kinder Communities.”
Asher’s debut novel, “Thirteen Reasons Why,” tells the story of Hannah Baker, a high school student who dies by suicide but leaves several cassette tapes behind to explain to those who hurt her what she believes to be the 13 reasons why she made the choices that led to her death.
First published in 2007, the book has spent more than 163 weeks on The New York Times best-seller list, has been published in 35 countries, has more than 2.1 million copies in print in the United States and has become a discussion piece for anti-bullying campaigns.
Asher said the book was inspired by a relative who attempted suicide and that the book’s format was inspired by a driving tour he took in Wyoming.
“The excitement among young people, librarians, and teachers for Jay’s books encouraged me to schedule his visit,” Brinda said. “It’s also an invaluable experience for people of all ages to hear and meet successful authors who create meaningful literature that inspires young people to read and write. Hearing and meeting Jay is an incredible opportunity for the entire community.”
A second novel, “The Future of Us,” co-written with Carolyn Mackler, tells the story of two teens in 1996 who discover their future selves on the yet-to-be-invented Facebook.
There are plans for both books to be made into motion pictures. Asher lives in California with his wife and son.
There will be a book-signing and reception with refreshments provided by the Pitt-Bradford Hospitality Management Club following Asher’s presentation. For more information on Asher’s visit to Bradford, contact Brinda.
For disability needs related to the on-campus events, contact the Office of Disability Resources at (814)362-7609 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

It is with great pleasure and respect that I announce my intention to seek re-election for a 4th, four year term as the McKean County Coroner in the May 12th, Primary Election representing the Republican Party.
Since being elected McKean County Coroner in 2004 and prior to that as a deputy coroner for 17 years, I have been privilege to be a part of the death investigation of hundreds of people in McKean County. This position has allowed me to use my education, training, and experience of over 35 years to provide the answers to the questions which law enforcement officials and the decedent’s survivors have regarding the circumstances surrounding a death. While these answers are not easily determined or accepted, I have always strived to perform these duties in a dignified and professional manner. I feel that my years of experience and training will allow me to serve the community as the best candidate for the Republican Party for the next four years.
Raised and educated in Bradford, I attended St. Bernard Elementary School, Bradford Central Christian High School, the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford, and finally the Pittsburgh Institute of Mortuary Science.
After graduating from college I returned to Bradford in 1984 and served my Internship under my father’s supervision at the Francis D. Cahill Funeral Home. From 1985 to 1993 I served as a Director at the Cahill Funeral Home and later the Hollenbeck-Cahill Funeral Homes Inc. I became a partner in the firm in 1993, and currently own and operate the Hollenbeck-Cahill Funeral Homes, Inc.
From 1986 until 2003 I served as Deputy McKean County Coroner, and since 2004 I have served as the Coroner of McKean County. I was the first McKean County Coroner to complete The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Office of Attorney General Coroner’s Education Course and Examination given at the Pennsylvania State Police Academy in Hershey, in December of 2003. For the past 11 years I have attended and completed the Pennsylvania Coroners Education Course and most of those years at no expense to the County.
My professional memberships include the National Funeral Directors Association, the Pennsylvania Funeral Directors Association, the Western Pennsylvania Funeral Directors Association, the Pennsylvania State Coroners Association, the Pennsylvania Department of Health-Child Death Review Team, and the Seneca Law Enforcement Agency.
My civic involvement and memberships include; former member of the Board of Directors at Bradford Regional Medical Center, Board of Directors at the Office of Economic and Community Development, member of the Knights of Columbus Council #403, Kinzua Valley Trails Association, former member, East Bradford Businessmen’s Association, former committee member and past Treasurer of the Don Raabe Big 30 All Star Charities Classic and the Rotary Club of Bradford

Coudersport, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announces that work will begin Monday, April 6 to remove a bridge and re-align Route 3001 (East Fork Road) in the village of Wharton in Potter County. Crews will work to construct a new section of Route 3001 in order to connect it directly to Route 872.
Eliminating the bridge will allow PennDOT to remove it from Potter County’s structurally deficient list. The 64-foot bridge spans the East Fork of Sinnemahoning Creek and was originally built in 1932. An average of 200 vehicles moves through this area each day.
Starting next week, work will include preliminary activities including erosion and sedimentation control, clearing and grubbing, and drainage. Traffic disruptions during this work will be minimal and may include intermittent roadway flagging during daylight hours.
Once preliminary work is complete, slope work will take place followed by work to build the new section of Route 3001. The bridge will not be removed until Route 3001 is complete and traffic can travel on it. Temporary traffic signals will be used for the bridge removal portion of the project. PennDOT will issue project updates as work progress requires—including an update prior to the implementation of the temporary signals.
Overall work includes bridge removal and roadway extension/re-alignment, paving, guide rail updates, and miscellaneous items.
Francis J. Palo, Inc. of Clarion, PA is the contractor for this $3.3 million job. PennDOT expects work to be finished by early November. All work is weather and schedule dependent.
PennDOT reminds drivers to proceed through work zones with caution, obey posted speed limits and always buckle up.

Smethport, PA – Improvement work on Route 6 in McKean County that began in 2014 resumed this week for 2015. Motorists could encounter alternating traffic patterns enforced by flaggers during daylight hours in three different work zones: Hazelhurst to Smethport, East Smethport to Port Allegany, and Port Allegany to the Potter County line.
The goal of the work is to improve the roadway surface and ride quality and extend the useful life of the pavement. This work was made possible by Act 89.
Overall work will include base repairs, shoulder improvements, tree trimming, drainage improvements, guide rail updates, bridge deck repairs and paving. The tree trimming work will allow sunlight to reach larger portions of the highway for longer periods of time, providing an additional safety factor in the winter months.
Glenn O. Hawbaker, Inc. of State College is the contractor on this $7.5 million project. Work will continue through mid-July. All work is weather and schedule dependent.
Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles by visiting www.511PA.com. 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 770 traffic cameras.
511PA is also available through a smartphone application for iPhone and Android devices, by calling 5-1-1, or by following regional Twitter alerts accessible on the 511PA website.

Judge in Paterno-NCAA case dislocates shoulder
By John Beauge | Special to PennLive
COUDERSPORT -- The Potter County senior judge presiding over the lawsuit Joe Paterno's survivors brought against the NCAA, Penn State and by extension, Louis Freeh, will have his right arm in a sling for a while.
Judge John B. Leete, 69, of Coudersport, dislocated his shoulder when he fell Tuesday on snow-covered black ice as he stepped outside his house to feed the dog, his wife, Georgianna, said.
The judge was taken to Cole Memorial Hospital where the shoulder was put back in place, she said. Leete's left arm had been in a sling earlier this year, because he had rotator cuff surgery.
The dislocated shoulder will not prevent him from working, his wife said.
It did cause the postponement of a Tuesday hearing he scheduled in Williamsport on pretrial motions on charges that include vehicular homicide and involuntary manslaughter against former Williamsport police Officer Jonathan DePrenda. Read more...

Alumni of the Month - Brian Stavisky
Year of Graduation - 1999
What have you done since graduating from Port Allegany High School?
After high school graduation, I attended the University of Notre Dame on a baseball scholarship. I wanted to go to Notre Dame my whole life, and I greatly thank the teachers of the Port Allegany School District, especially during my high school years, for preparing me for the academic challenges of such a prestigious institution. Baseball alone would not have allowed me to attend Notre Dame. It was that combined with my academic background that earned me that honor. While playing baseball there I helped the Fighting Irish to earn a #1 national ranking during my sophomore season and the College World Series as a junior. I was drafted in the sixth round of the 2002 professional baseball draft by the Oakland Athletics and decided to forego my senior year of eligibility to start my pro baseball career. That was the Moneyball year for the A's, so it was really neat to be part of that. I returned to Notre Dame during my senior fall semester and following fall semester to complete my business management degree (3.6 GPA...thanks again Port Allegany teachers!). I played pro baseball from 2002-2010 in the A's, Angels, and Phillies organizations, reaching the AAA level right below the majors. I was part of four league championship teams from the A to AAA levels, and also crossed paths with Josh Kinney, my hometown friend and teammate. It was amazing to see him in the majors, especially when he helped the St. Louis Cardinals win the 2006 World Series.
Since pro baseball, I've worked at St. Bonaventure University in athletics, have held two sales positions, and have reunited with baseball as an instructor at Diamond Pro baseball in Rochester, NY.
Where do you currently live?
Farmington, NY (just outside Rochester).
Who was your favorite teacher in high school? Why were they your favorite?
If I don't say Mr. Stavisky, the physical education teacher, I might get in trouble! I did enjoy having my dad in the high school with me (and mom while in elementary school), but I also enjoyed all of the other teachers. I have so many great memories of all the teachers across all the traditional academic subjects, but I've always remembered the attention to detail that Mr. Myers brought to the high school chorus and show choir. To this day, nearly 16 years after graduation, I remember how he taught us to sing certain words and how to be precise with dance moves. Thank you Mr. Myers, for pushing us to be as close to perfect as possible while also still having a ton of fun!
What is your fondest memory of Port Allegany High School?
As an athlete, there are many games that stand out in my mind. From playing in front of standing-room-only crowds against Coudersport as a freshman, or on the basketball team, or to winning the District 9 Baseball Championship as a senior. I loved everything about the games, my coaches, teammates, fellow students, parents, and fans that gave us so much support. Aside from sports, I really enjoyed playing "Danny" in Grease during my junior year. That was so much work, but also so much fun for everyone involved!
Lastly, I'd like to comment on growing up in Port Allegany in general. I've been all around the country, but there's no place where people work harder, are more friendly and caring, and are more genuine. I'm so proud to be from Port Allegany with the upbringing and education I received there. There's no place like home!
