Prohibiting Fracking at the Municipal Level - Special Meeting Saturday, Oct. 10, 4:30PM

Prohibiting Fracking at the Municipal Level - Special Meeting Saturday, Oct. 10, 4:30PM

Can municipalities prevent drilling and fracking in their communities? Contrary to popular belief, the answer is - YES!

Learn how communities across the country are passing local laws to protect their rights and prohibit harmful activities, like unconventional hydraulic fracturing, this SATURDAY, October 1​0​th from 4:30 to 6:30 PM at the Gunzburger Building (One North Main Street, Coudersport, PA 16915).

Over 100 municipalities have done so in Pennsylvania by passing a Community Bill of Rights.

The recent water contamination in Potter County highlights the need for our community to talk about how we can protect ourselves, our families and our water supplies in the future. A Community Bill of Rights is one option that people of Potter County can consider.

Barry Hayman, a concerned citizen and former government teacher, will touch briefly on the issue at large and introduce Chad Nicholson of Pennsylvania Community Rights Network, who will present information about these ordinances and more on Saturday.

For questions, please contact Barry Hayman at 814-848-9969 or For more information about the Pennsylvania Community Rights Network, visit

Shop Local Made Easier

The words are bantered about “shop local”, but why and how? The why is because local merchants make donations to local organizations. Dealing with an out of town owner is often difficult to reach and corporate policy sometimes places restrictions. For every dollar spent at a local hardware, grocery, or retail shop 45 cents comes back to the community. Purchase it elsewhere and 15 cents comes back, and if you purchase online, no money comes back locally.

The how just got easier. Saturday November 28 is Shop Small Saturday. A number of retail shops will participate hosting special sales and activities. To help you pick out the perfect gift, the Cameron County Chamber of Commerce web site at is offering a gift buying section. Each week gifts made by artists in the region will be featured. They can be purchased using the online store, or reserved with a phone call for pick up.
This season shop local and keep the money local.

126 Water Samples Received to Date; No Additional Detections of Isopropanol

Two impacted Water Source Samples Now Below Detection Limits for MBAS

WEXFORD, Pa. (Oct. 5) – JKLM Energy, LLC issued the following update to the public regarding the company’s continuing response to the release of drilling chemicals at its Sweden Township, Potter County wellpad. These updates and related information are available at a project-specific website:

As of October 5, 2015, JKLM Energy, LLC has received a total of 126 lab results (101 initial tests, 25 follow-up tests) from water sources near the Reese Hollow 118 wellpad. Updated results are summarized as follows:

The chart above indicates the total number of water sources sampled and analyzed to date (101), updated to reflect follow-up sampling. It includes results for the presence of methylene blue activated substances (MBAS), analyzed to determine the general presence of soap-like constituents contained in the surfactant that was placed in the wellbore; isopropanol (IPA); and acetone, a constituent expected to be found as isopropanol breaks down in the environment. A total of five samples were found early in the investigation process with levels of MBAS above the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s non-health based secondary standard of 0.5 parts per million (ppm). 

As cited previously, a single sample was found at Pennsylvania’s Act 2 standard for isopropanol (15 ppm) for residential aquifer use during the same time period, and no samples above the state standard of 33 ppm for acetone have been identified. Updated sampling results indicate that of five impacted water sources, two are now below detection limits for MBAS, defined as above the laboratory detection limit, but below the USEPA secondary standard. Eight sources have had trace amounts of acetone, all well below the drinking water standard.

Follow-up sampling indicates a substantial reduction in residential water source impacts, with two sources now testing below the USEPA secondary standard for MBAS and four others now testing below detectable limits for MBAS.

JKLM is continuing to work closely with local officials as well as the DEP to limit the release’s impact to the community and restore the local water aquifer to pre-drilling quality. Local residents with questions or who notice a change in their water quality may contact Dean Boorum, JKLM's community liaison, at (814) 598-3960.

The JKLM Community Outreach office is open at 200 N. West St. in Coudersport and will be staffed from 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM, Monday through Friday. The public is invited to visit the office to talk with project managers, and view maps and related information about the company’s response efforts.

JKLM remains committed to its partnership with local residents, as well as to open lines of communication with local and state officials and affected property owners.

chicken caesar salad, Italian wedding soup, a roll, beverages and cream puffs.

The program for the afternoon consists of two parts.

Members of the Bradford Little Theatre will do dramatic readings of letters from children who rode the orphan trains.

"We are very pleased to join forces with Bradford Little Theatre again for one of our activities," said Sandy Rhodes, a member of the OBB committee. "These are a group of talented local thespians who will enhance our luncheon tremendously."

Also, John Policastro from Beacon Light Behavioral Health Systems will offer insight into the plight of orphans as it related to and impacted the Bradford community during the time of the orphan trains.

"Beacon Light has been an important part of our local history," Rhodes said. "The information John will share will surely be interesting and impactful."

OBB is a community-wide reading initiative where one book is selected each season.

This year’s selection - “Orphan Train” - is an award-winning novel that deals with orphaned, abandoned or homeless children who were sent from the East Coast to the rural Midwest to be raised by foster families between 1854 and 1929.

“A Place at the Table Luncheon” is the second event in the OBB season, which will culminate in a visit to Bradford by the author.

Christina Baker Kline will speak in Bromeley Family Theater in Blaisdell Hall on the Pitt-Bradford campus on Thursday, Nov. 5, at 7:30 p.m.

Her visit is funded by the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford's Spectrum Arts Series and freshman seminar.

Tickets for the luncheon will remain on sale until Wednesday, Oct. 14.

Speed Display Sign in Liberty Township

Port Allegany, PA – Motorists traveling through Port Allegany, McKean County, will be reminded to obey the posted speed limit on Route 155. The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation recently placed a radar-controlled speed display sign south of the intersection of Route 155 and Route 6.

The speed display board is to aid in curbing speeding, a common type of aggressive driving.

The sign faces northbound traffic and utilizes radar to determine the speeds of oncoming traffic. Vehicle speeds are then posted on the lighted section of the sign. The posted speed limit in this area of Route 155 is 45 miles per hour.

PennDOT placed the sign in response to a request from the office of Pennsylvania State Representative Martin Causer. The speed display sign will remain on location for up to four weeks.

Speeding and other aggressive driving behaviors are among the leading causes of crashes and fatalities in Pennsylvania. Other aggressive driving behaviors include running stop signs or red lights, passing illegally and tailgating. Aggressive driving behaviors were listed as a crash cause in 48 percent of McKean County crashes in 2014.

by Martha Pennell,

Several events take place Wednesday, October 14th, at Saint Paul’s Lutheran church: Germania Luncheon club meets at noon, Women’s Bible study group meets at 3 pm, and Lutheran Church Council meets at 6:30 pm. 

 Sunday, October 18th, is Harvest Home day at Saint Paul’s Lutheran church; worshippers are requested to bring nonperishable food items for the Galeton Food Pantry.

Partnership is God’s plan, according to Pastor Tom. 

 In his sermon, “Partnership,” he explained that God got things going in an orderly procedure, then called Adam and Eve into partnership to care for creation. He has been doing so from one generation to the next. 

God has been calling us since the beginning of time, as he did Abraham, Sarah, Noah, Joseph, Esther, Ruth, David, Joseph and Mary. We are in the plan, Pastor Tom said. We are designed, with our good genes and souls and everything about us, to be in partnership with each other and with God. 

From the beginning in every aspect of life a plan is in place. We become new, our life is built up, and the past is finished. Barren times are over and the future blossoms forever. 

Revelation 19: 7-8 states the wedding of the lamb has come and the bride is ready, which is us Pastor Tom explained. Evil and wickedness have been judged and destroyed. The dwelling place of God is with people, Pastor Tom concluded, and partnership with him is for eternity. 

That is where we are headed. 

Let us be partners with Jesus!
