Galeton Food Pantry opens Friday, January 27th, at 10 am at Saint Paul’s Lutheran church.
First Presbyterian’s congregational meeting follows worship January 29th.
These snacks and supplies are welcomed in either church kitchen for the GalePride after school program: drink boxes, snack items, paper plates, napkins, Clorox wipes, peanut butter and jelly, fruit and veggies. Thanks to all those who have given!
“The people who sat in darkness have seen a great light, and upon those who sat in the region and shadow of death, light has dawned."
From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” (Matthew 4: 16, 17).
In his sermon, “From Gloom to Glory,” Pastor Tom said Jesus told the fishermen Simon (Peter) and Andrew he would teach them to catch people.
They left their nets and followed him; so did James and John.
Jesus preached about the Kingdom and healed people with diseases and illnesses. He walked on water and calmed the storm waves. He started forming his people, his body, and his church.
Pastor Tom told us fishing is exhilarating to the senses and it is good to go with a master—let’s go fishing with Jesus! He is always on the move, pushing, pulling, and reaching out to the world.
Come and see, follow me.
The kingdom of heaven has begun. Jesus is the great inviter. He never throws anything back! There is a purpose to life, new direction.
Listen and respond with witness of how Jesus takes things from gloom to glory.
Gloom does not last. Invite and witness beyond comfort to caring.
The more we know him the more we serve him and the sweeter he grows!

Day 144, Living life on my terms.
While outside, I started to make mental notes about things that need to be accomplished once the weather breaks for good. There are a ton of leaves that need to be picked up, my flower beds need to have some dirt replenished, I have about 20 divots in the yard that need to be filled, and my mailbox post looks as if it will snap in a stiff breeze; and that is just what I can see right now.
But isn’t that what spring is all about, getting out and doing those jobs to beautify your home and property. If you think about it, it is not a job rather it is more of a celebration of the season.
When I think about spring, I always find myself remembering my days at Erway’s working in the greenhouse. It was really my favorite time to work there.
Before the snow would completely melt, Dana would have me outside starting to put together tables and shelves for all of the displays. The rose bushes were always delivered around March and they were the first thing put out in the greenhouse. I would stack them in tiers so people could easily see the picture on the box because the root balls all looked exactly the same.
Now when I started working there, the green house was basically a plastic covered shelter built off of the end of the produce section. It was not uncommon for small animals to crawl under the fence and plastic to surprise us in the morning. My biggest surprise however came in the shape of a huge snapping turtle that found its way underneath the rose display.
The shell on this thing was about 18 inches long and he did not appear to like me very much. His neck seemed to have an incredible reach as I tried to pick him up. I thought for sure he would take a chunk out of my arm so I quickly placed him in a box and sent him to the turtle relocation project, otherwise known as the swampy land across the river. I had never seen a turtle that big, much less seen a turtle like that in town.
So, along with providing a variety of flowers, bushes, shrubs and trees, we also had to provide bags of soil, manure, fertilizer, and my “favorite”, peat moss. You see, everything else I mentioned would get delivered on pallets that could be moved with a fork lift and hand cart. Peat moss came from Canada on a 48 foot tractor trailer that was packed as tightly as possible, without any pallets. The entire thing had to be unloaded by hand.
It was sort of an all hands on deck for produce workers when that truck arrived. The driver would park in the vicinity of where we would stack and store the product and we had to unload it.
The bags ranged in size from one cubic foot to six cubic feet; however the majority of our shipment was of the 4 cubic foot variety. I would usually be on the truck handing the bags out to several of my coworkers who would then go and stack it. In the beginning, I had the good end of the deal, but in the end I paid for it by having to carry each individual bag from the front to the back where they would take it from me.
At the time, I was fairly strong and in pretty good shape. I could carry the bags and toss them around without much effort. My coworkers however were about half of my size and did have some difficulty. That difficulty was compounded even more by the fact that some of the bags were saturated with water.
A dry four cubic foot bag is not to heavy, maybe around 50 pounds. A wet bag would be three to four times that weight and almost impossible to pick up, well, impossible for some of them that is.
A good friend a coworker of mine at the time was Nevin Lehman. He used to hang out at the rink and he was a pretty good kid. Every time I felt a bag was going to be wet, I would make sure to give it to Nevin. The first time he tried to take one from the truck, it put him down to the ground and landed on top of him. Luckily he wasn’t crushed.
By the end of the day, he looked like he was wearing blackface for a role in a movie. Even his eyelids were covered in dirt. In all honesty, we all kind of looked like that as it was the dirtiest job of the year. When I got home, my mother would throw me a bar of soap and I would take a makeshift shower with the garden hose before I even tried to enter the house.
Once all of the displays were built and the stock was in place, it was wonderful getting to help people with their gardening needs. I really enjoyed helping them select flowers that were appropriate for full sun or part shade, whatever they needed. I was able to develop great customer relations and I made many new friends.
Many customers would come down and get an ice cream cone and then wander through the green house as they ate it. Every night around eight, I could count on Ferd and Dave Gunzberger coming in to see if anything was new. They were two of the most jovial fellows and a pure pleasure to see every time.
One Saturday morning I was working when a sort of frazzled looking woman wearing an old sweatshirt and pants came in to select her flowers. She was sweet and nice, although a little demanding and strangely intimidating. At the time, I did not know who she was, but I should have. It turned out to be Doris Rigas, something I never would have guessed in a million years. What can I say? She was ready to plant her flowers.
All in all, spring was wonderful at Erway’s. I made great friends and I like to think we had some good times.
Today I am going to dedicate my progress to Nevin Lehman, Ferd and Dave Gunzburger, and Doris Rigas. Thank you for the springtime memories.

BRADFORD, Pa. - Fateem Brockington hit the game-winning shot with five seconds remaining and the Pitt-Bradford men’s basketball team survived a frantic finish to edge La Roche, 75-74, Saturday afternoon.
The Redhawks entered the contest atop the league standings with a mark of 8-1, yet the Panthers led for nearly 37 minutes and overcame poor outside shooting to knock off the visitors.
La Roche erased a nine-point deficit over the final 3:22 to tie game at 73 with 15 seconds left on Arnes Bajgora’s three from the wing. Pitt-Bradford aided the Redhawks’ comeback attempt by missing a pair of shots and turning the ball over three times.
Following Bajgora’s three, Fateem Brockington drove the lane and hit a pull-up jumper, giving the Panthers a 75-73 lead, and then chaos ensued.
Out of a La Roche timeout, Pitt-Bradford’s Dylan Niedermeyer stole Dion Etheridge’s inbounds pass near half-court. The Redhawks immediately fouled, and Niedermeyer lost his balance, crashing to the floor. His momentum from making the steal carried him underneath the Panthers’ basket.
Pitt-Bradford was assessed a Class B technical foul when Tim Atkinson rushed over from the bench to help Niedermeyer up. La Roche was awarded one free throw and converted, and Niedermeyer went to the line at the other end with a chance to ice the game. He missed the front-end of the one-and-one and was whistled for a foul as La Roche’s Ray Quan Phifer attempted to push the ball up the court with two seconds remaining.
With the student section at a fever-pitch, Phifer missed his free throw shot with 0.6 seconds left on the clock, and Evan Greening tipped the ball into the corner to preserve the win.
Pitt-Bradford built a 13-point first-half lead, ignited by the play of Sahlil Harris off the bench. His and-one play fueled a stretch of nine-straight points by the Panthers midway through the half, and his jumper shortly before the buzzer gave the home team a 38-31 lead at the break.
La Roche tied the game on four separate occasions in the second half, yet could never jump ahead as the Panthers answered each time. Brockington’s and-one play with 3:22 remaining pushed Pitt-Bradford’s deficit to nine, setting the stage for a wild finish.
The Panthers shot 46 percent from the floor, but struggled from long-range going 4-16. They were 15-19 from the charity stripe and outscored the Redhawks by 12 in the paint. La Roche hit 44 percent of its attempts and connected for nine threes to claw back.
Harris finished with a career-high 25 points on 9-13 shooting, and Greening collected his 14th double-double of the season, scoring 16 points and pulling down 14 boards. His rebound shortly before halftime gave him 1,000 for his career. Brockington added 15 points, and Jon Haenel netted four steals.
Pitt-Bradford improves to 8-8 on the year and 6-5 in the AMCC. The Panthers travel to Alfred State Wednesday for a mid-week contest.

BRADFORD, Pa. - La Roche scored the game-winning basket with one minute remaining and held on to beat the Pitt-Bradford women’s basketball team, 57-56, Saturday afternoon at the KOA Arena.
Billed the AMCC Game of the Week, the matchup of the league’s top two teams lived up to the hype and then some. The game was tied at 44 after three quarters and the lead exchanged hands 10 times over the final 10 minutes.
Trailing 52-49, La Roche scored four straight points to go ahead by one with 3:07 remaining. Following a Pitt-Bradford timeout, Darien Lantz found Brittany Watts free in the lane, and she scored to push the Panthers in front 54-53.
The Redhawks scored on the ensuing possession, but Pitt-Bradford retook the lead on Watts’ second straight basket with 2:15 remaining. The teams traded empty possessions, and off an offensive rebound, the Redhawks’ Mackenzie O’Donnell knocked down a 15-foot jumper to make it 57-56.
Ali Rinfrette was whistled for traveling on the subsequent play, yet the Panthers forced a turnover of their own with 20 seconds left.
Watts had the ball poked away underneath with three seconds remaining, and the Panthers called a timeout to set-up one final play. Rinfrette got free for a shot from the right wing, but it grazed off the front-end of the basket, and the Redhawks escaped with their perfect conference record intact.
Pitt-Bradford trailed much of the first half before closing the period on a 10-4 run, capped by Anna Colebert’s jumper in the paint with 56 seconds left, to lead 29-28 at halftime.
Neither team shot the ball particularly well from the field, nor forced the volume of turnovers they generally do. Pitt-Bradford hit at a 36 percent clip, the Redhawks shot 34 percent, and they combined for just seven made threes. The Panthers outrebounded the Redhawks 47-39 and held a 32-28 scoring edge in the paint.
Watts led Pitt-Bradford with 12 points on 6-10 shooting and pulled down 11 rebounds for her fifth double-double. Kaserra Owens finished with 11 points, five rebounds, and four steals while holding the Redhawks’ TiChina Mitchell relatively in check all game. Mitchell entered the contest averaging more than 27 points per game and was held six points below her season-average.
Colebert totaled 10 points, and Lantz added nine points and three assists. Rinfrette, the team’s leading scorer, battled foul trouble and was limited to a season-low six points.
Pitt-Bradford drops to 9-8 on the season and 7-4 in the AMCC. The Panthers travel to Alfred State Wednesday for a late-season non-conference matchup.
Mitchell 7-4-6-21, Harris 6-3-3-15, O'Donnell 6-2-5-14, Johnson 2-0-0-5, Schifino 1-0-0-2, Regan 0-0-0-0, Brown 0-0-0-0. 22-9-14-57.

Genesee Township is going into the new year with some change in
leadership and some carryover of old issues, including a civil suit
involving an alleged Sunshine Law violation and a grievance regarding
the community garbage policy. The board of supervisors, chaired last
year by Dann Thompson, will be led in 2017 by Scot Miller.
Miller was nominated for chairman by Supervisor Scott Luce, with a
second by Miller. The action was opposed by Thompson. Miller then
nominated Luce for vice-chair, with a second by Luce and a nay vote
Secretary Kristine Smith will continue in her position, at her current
wage, but supervisors agreed to discontinue the vacation benefit,
while retaining the six sick days. Smith has served as secretary since
March 2016 and recently received a pay increase. Thompson, who said he
was unaware of the wage adjustment, voted against it and said he
considers it “atrocious” to provide benefits to a part-time employee.
Colby Cooney, who has served as temporary roadmaster since Aug. 2015
except for a short period last winter when Thompson filled the role,
was named roadmaster upon the resignation of Tim Elliott, who had held
the position and has been on leave due to injury. No changes were made
to Cooney’s wages and he will continue to be allowed six sick days per
year. The position includes two weeks vacation after a year. Milller
and Luce voted for these actions, while Thompson voted against
changing the position from a temporary status, but in favor of the
The other full-time road crew position was also changed from a
temporary status, with Miller noting that the employee in this
position has worked for the township full-time for more than a year.
Wages for the position remain the same. Thompson voted against the
Billy Braun was reappointed as building permit officer, at the same
compensation as last year. Braun noted that he will continue to
decline any payment for his service. “You can put it in the budget,”
he told supervisors, “but I don’t want anything.” Braun will also
serve as vacancy board chairman.
Briana Calcote was chosen to fill a auditor’s seat made vacant by the
resignation of Sarah Miller.
After some contentious discussion, supervisors voted unanimously to
continue with the $50 annual garbage fee and a $2 per bag sticker fee,
with the option to revisit both decisions. All permit fees and tax
allotments will remain the same, as well.
At the conclusion of the organizational meeting, Miller opened the
regular monthly meeting by saying he believes the township has a lot
to offer. “We have a nice park, a nice little downtown area, and we
have great employees,” he said, adding that everyone should count
their blessings and work together, instead of against one another.
A resident said that while that sounds good, it didn’t appear to him
that Miller and Luce were trying very hard to work with Thompson.
Miller replied that when someone has filed a lawsuit against another
it makes it difficult to work together, referring to the suit against
the township and supervisors Miller and Luce in which Thompson is a
plaintiff, along with residents Rance Baxter and Dennis Matteson.
Baxter and Matteson once again asked supervisors to eliminate the $50
annual garbage fee but, after discussion and a year-end report by the
secretary showing the solid waste fund with a financial deficit if the
FEMA-approved rate for truck usage and other apportioned costs are
included in the calculation, Miller said he has no intention of
changing the program at this time. Matteson said he wants it put in
the minutes that Miller refused to consider an alternate plan. Miller
said options have been discussed and considered and he doesn’t think
any change is warranted.
Meetings will continue to be held the first Tuesday of each month
(with the exception of November) at 7 p.m. at the firehall.

Day 143, Living life on my terms.
I am starting to get off of the oxygen a little bit at home each day. Today I went off for a small period while I cleaned up myself to start my day. At first when I sat back down, my oxygen was down to around 85%, but after 2 deep breathes I was right back up to 94%. This should improve as I drop more weight and increase my stamina. Still, having a quick recovery like that is progress.
My family has been wonderful through all of my trials and turmoils over the past couple of years. My sister Anne and I try to communicate every day, even though I tend to be a little lazy about calling her. If Joe doesn’t hear anything from me for three days, he will call to make sure I am “among the living” and that things are alright. Lucia is always there when I need her as well. Her mantra for me is “you just gotta get up and do it!”
Get up and do it; that is exactly what it is time to do. I have too many things that I need to do and so many things that I want to do. Additionally, as of this week, I have something else to strive toward; an IUP friend gathering in Potter County this summer!
It was all the idea of my great friend Linda Voegler-Granite and her partners in crime; Jennifer Meliton and Jennifer Buchanan-Rapatch. These three put their minds together and decided that if Muhammed (I guess that is me) can’t come off of the mountain (referring to Potter County), maybe they should all ascend up the mountain to him!
You see, my health has prevented me from traveling to several recent alumni events and reunions that took place down state. While I was able to enjoy videos and pictures from those who did attend, I missed out on the personal interactions. I missed out on being a part of the memories and as everyone has realized by now, I am all about the memories.
It was after my story that had the photo of 15 friends huddled around a couch outside in a courtyard at IUP. Like the story said, we were living for the moment and each other. That single story started to spark ideas and inspire others in many different ways.
Having taught for a couple of years in Port Allegany, Linda was familiar with our area and she started looking into some vacation rentals and realized our area has much to offer. She found countless rentals that were available and suited the need of a “small” group.
Luckily, the property she has more or less reserved can also handle a large group, because the idea of a God’s Country Get Together took flight and has generated a great deal of interest and support. If things continue, this will not be just a small group, and I could not be happier.
The string of comments has been astonishing. Friends who have moved to even far away states are trying to make arrangements so that they can attend. They are taking ideas and running with them.
Much like the story I wrote about how a small town could survive and flourish, they have all realized that Mother Nature provides a bounty of activities available in our humble little area. Hiking, fishing, stargazing, the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon, the Austin Dam and the Ice Mine are just a few of the highlights that are being considered.
All of those activities are great, but all of us are mostly looking forward to sitting around the campfire and picking up on conversations that started over 20 years ago.
I have to keep from getting too excited about all of this as things are still in the planning and development stages, but it is very hard. I have not been this eager since the IUP Marching Band came to Coudersport back in 2000.
As a group, my IUP friends and I tend to be spontaneous, down to earth, and fun loving. When I mentioned that I was related to the people who own Mort’s Meat Mafia and we might be able to contract him to provide us with some real barbeque for our gathering, they were all on board.
In fact, they really loved the name and the logo. One of the first questions was wondering if Mort had t-shirts with his logo. Now a bunch of them want to get his t-shirts for a group photo. That is just the kind of people they are, and how I miss and love them.
While at school, I often lamented on the greatness of my hometown, which before meeting me most of them had never even heard of Coudersport. After looking over things that have been posted, many of them are wondering why they never vacationed up here before.
Today I want to dedicate my progress to the three ladies who are trying to make this the best summer ever (at least for me, it would be the best summer ever!!!); Linda Voegler Granite, Jennifer Ann Meliton, and Jennifer Buchanan Rapatch. I really hope we are able to pull this off and spend time together in my mountains.
Also, before I end this story, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to both Jennifer’s today, January 21. I love you girls and can’t wait to see you!
