Think About It

God Never Said That!
by Pastor B.J. Knefley

There are many things that are attributed to God that he never said or did. One such example is what I heard my daughter say the other day. She stated that God would never give her more than she could handle. Well, God never said that.

Actually people are experiencing things everyday that are beyond their capabilities to handle. The idea that God wouldn’t give you more than you can handle would also then seem to imply that everything that comes your way is from God. Although it’s true that He allows it, He isn’t the author of it. For example, did you know that Satan has the power over life and death? Surprised? Read Job chapter one and you will find that Satan was given permission to do whatever he wanted to Job except take his life. But Satan did take the life of his children.

Some believe that this thought comes from I Cor 10:13 where Paul says: “God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out.” (1 Cor 10:13). But this has to do with temptation.

Take a few moments and read Hebrews 11. It’s the chapter that is referred to as the faith chapter. It’s a great testimony of God’s deliverance and provision to people of faith, but it also tells of those who did not received deliverance. In fact the very opposite happened, they suffered. The point is that even in their suffering they kept their eyes upon what laid ahead and that even in death, God was able to deliver them.

James, said “Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing.” (James 1:2-4). Perhaps it’s not what happens to you but rather what you do with it. Think about it.

Pastor David & Lorraine Minor Mark 70th Anniversary


Lloyd Emery Eastman Named Port Allegany School District Alumni of the Month

In photo: Lloyd Eastman & wife Delores
Leaving a Legacy

We are very pleased to showcase noteworthy individuals who have left a fine legacy and defined the very essence of what and who we are - those who have made us better simply because they were here.

Port Allegany School District Alumni of the Month - Lloyd Emery Eastman

Lloyd Eastman

Year of Graduation

What have you done since graduating from Port Allegany High School?

Lloyd Eastman: I began working at the North Penn Gas Company after graduation and then started my banking career at the age of 21 at the First National Bank of Port Allegany. At the age of 24, I married Dolores Botera, and we recently celebrated our 69th wedding anniversary. We have four children, eleven grandchildren, fourteen great-grandchildren, and three great-great grandchildren.

My work at the bank lasted 64 years, beginning with my 21st birthday and ending on my 85th birthday, holding the positions from bank teller through president and CEO. I served as president longer, almost 21 years, than any other in the bank’s history, but only 54 days longer than Keith Fortner who followed me as president.

My community involvement came through as band boosters, Chamber of Commerce, S. W. Smith Library, economic development, Rotary and the Methodist Church, serving as treasurer for each group. I also served as the president of the Port Allegany Rotary Club. I still attend meetings every week, and have now served for over 46 years with perfect attendance. My “Big E” nickname came from transporting equipment and chaperoning dances for our oldest son’s band, The Echoes. I also enjoyed filling the Vista Cruiser station wagon with kids and taking them to high school sporting events throughout the years.

Where do you currently live?

I have lived in the Wrights-Port Allegany for all my life, currently at 216 Chestnut Street, our home since 1960.

Who was your favorite teacher in high school? Why were they your favorite?

Our business teacher, Mrs. Snyder, was my favorite teacher. She was probably my favorite because I liked the subjects she taught the best.

What is your fondest memory of Port Allegany High School?

I liked being around the people. I remember riding the bus from the Wrights store where I lived to school, being in the band, and going to the football games.

Rachel's Challenge Presentation Tonight At Coudewrsport HighSchool Auditorium at 6 PM

The Potter County Suicide Prevention Task Force is excited to announce that after three years of hard work, Rachel’s Challenge will be providing programs for all of the Potter County schools throughout the week of September, 26th, 2016. With the funds raised and additional financial assistance given from the Potter County System of Care, this program is now a reality. Rachel’s Challenge uses the story of Rachel Scott, the first victim of the Columbine Shooting, in effort to make schools safer, more connected places where bullying and violence are replaced with kindness and respect; and where learning and teaching are awakened to their fullest. 

There is evidence that schools that have participated and fully implemented the Rachel’s Challenge program see significant gains in community engagement, faculty and student relationships, leadership potential, and school climate. The ultimate goal of Rachel’s Challenge is to decrease harassment, bullying, and violence within the school environment. It is estimated that seventy-five percent of adolescents report being bullied at some point during their school career. The Rachel’s Challenge program has not only triggered a decline in bullying issues within the school, but has also helped avert over 150 suicides. 

Rachel’s Challenge provides a comprehensive set of age-appropriate programs for K-12. The Elementary School Program will encourage students to use kind words and to do simple acts of kindness.  The High School Program will address root problems such as isolation, prejudice, and bullying in an age-appropriate manner. In addition to the school centered programs, we invite you to participate in a community wide event at the Coudersport High School Auditorium on September 29th, 2016, at 6:00pm. A Rachel’s Challenge staff member will share Rachel’s story in order to promote real culture change by encouraging engagement and support from the community as a whole. 

If there are any surrounding school districts that would like to preview the Rachel’s Challenge program, please contact us for a schedule of events.  For questions or additional information please contact Carla Milliron at, 814-274-8651 or email

DEP Reminds Pool Owners to Handle Waste Water Responsibly

Harrisburg, PA – In an effort to help protect stream health and aquatic life, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) would like to remind private and public pool owners, as well as pool management companies, how to properly close their swimming pools for the season.

Discharged pool water and waters containing chlorine or other chemicals can be detrimental to aquatic life if not handled responsibly. It is extremely important that these waters are handled correctly. Pool waters must not be discharged to any storm sewer or land in which a storm sewer is accessible. Runoff can cause fish kills and unsafe aquatic conditions.

“Pool owners and professional pool cleaners need to dispose of old water appropriately and conscientiously,” said Acting DEP Secretary Patrick McDonnell. “Most of all, we need to make sure the wastewater is going into the sanitary sewer, where it may be allowed – and not into our storm sewers where it could harm aquatic life.”

When draining a swimming pool this year, make sure to protect Pennsylvania by following these tips:

• Pool water may be disposed of through the sanitary sewer system ONLY with municipal permission.
• Never dispose of pool water through a storm sewer, which will discharge to a stream.
• If lowering the water level of the pool, let it drain to a lawn to prevent it from running off into a storm sewer.
• If a sanitary sewer system is not available, water may be used for irrigation if it does not run off the property or into a storm sewer.

The discharge of swimming pool water to any waters of the commonwealth without a permit is a violation of the Clean Streams Law. Property owners and pool companies that violate this law may be prosecuted and penalized for damages.

To Vote — or Not To Vote?

Letter to the editor:
To Vote — or Not To Vote?
by Bill Chatham — C3

“Why are you not voting,” I asked? “Well — I don’t like either one of ‘em. Clinton’s a crook and Trump’s like Archie Bunker in a suit!”

To be fair, those generalizations, while seeming to be true for those who’re not paying attention, are not valid enough reasons for skipping a rite thousands of Americans have died for, and a rite millions in today’s world don’t have.

Consider other factors — mainly, what does either party they represent stand for? Today’s Democratic Party (Hillary) is entrenched in a determined march toward Socialism and Globalism, all under the control of the privileged few, an Oligarchy with President Obama making a determined effort to succeed the outgoing head of the UN. The next steps after Socialism are Communism and Dictatorship.

The GOP (Grand Old Party — The Donald) seems to prefer the mantle of strength that has in the past, kept America at the forefront of world leadership. Our former scientific and economic dominance is now severely eroded in the current scheme of the evolving Democratic, Globalist world. Pay attention to what Socialism is doing to Venezuela, once the leading economy of South America. Inflation just this year is up 700%. Prepare for economic refugees from a country that has more oil reserves than we do.

Every rung of the ladder America has created by its determination and dominance through recent centuries has ended in the twenty-first. We gave away our lead by trying to be politically correct lemmings. Phooey! Let the rest of the world strive to be like us!

I believe we need someone like General George S. Patton right now — someone who has the aura and determination of such a leader, someone who is just as politically incorrect and is not afraid to build a symbolic wall just to make a point. Patton once said, “We herd sheep, we drive cattle, we lead people. Lead me, follow me, or get out of my way.”

Is Trump today’s Patton? We’ve certainly had our bellies full of crooks and self-serving wimps……just pull the big “R” lever.

This course is provided via live videoconference by the Pennsylvania College of Technology in partnership with area education councils. It is being held on Tuesday and Wednesday, October 18 and 19, 2016 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Education Council’s Coudersport office. The cost is $695 per person and registration is required.
