Galeton Man Moderately Injured When Truck Rolls Over Embankment

A Galeton man was flown to Robert Packer Hospital in Sayre on Tuesday after crashing his pickup truck on Button Hollow Road, 1.3 miles east of Route 144 in West Branch Township.

Herman W. Gilbert, 82, of Galeton, PA, was driving a 1993 Ford F-150 XL pickup truck east on Button Hollow road when he came upon a slow moving excavator traveling in the same direction. He moved to the eastern edge of the road, waiting for an oncoming vehicle to pass the excavator and his pickup.

Gilbert apparently moved over a little too close to the edge of the roadway. He lost control of the vehicle and it rolled toward the passenger side of the vehicle and descended a 15 foot embankment, causing the truck to overturn onto it's roof at the bottom of the embankment where it came to rest.

Galeton Ambulance EMS personnel and Medics stabilized Gilbert who was not wearing a seat belt. He complained of severe head and neck pain and was transported from the scene to a landing zone at the Black Forest Snowmobile Club where he was flown by Life Net 7-7 medical helicopter to Robert Packer Hospital.

Gaines Garage of Gaines, PA, removed the vehicle from the scene. Members of Goodyear Hose Company and Germania Fire Company assisted troopers at the scene.

Gilbert was issued a warning for Careless Driving and Restraint Systems.

Truck Rolled Over In Vader Hill Road Crash Thursday

A Coudersport man was not hurt when his truck went off Vader Hill Road and rolled onto it's roof Thursday at 4:10 pm.

Troopers said Robert L. Renziehausen, Jr., 61, of Coudersport, PA, was driving a 1992 Dodge Power Ram 250 east along Vader Hill Road, 1/2 mile west of Dutch Hill Road. He was attempting to negotiate a slight left hand curve in the roadway, when his vehicle began traveling off the south embankment, ultimately rolling onto it's roof.

Renziehausen told troopers he was unaware of how the incident happened. He was able to exit the vehicle on his own. He was wearing a lap and shoulder belt and sustained no injuries.

His vehicle sustained disabling damage to the windshield and roof. It was towed from the scene by Kightlinger Motors.

Renziehausen will be charged with (not) DRIVING VEHICLE AT SAFE SPEED in District Court 55-3-01.

New Puppy Mill Regs Would Leave Dogs On Wire If Corbett Agrees

Dog law revised, activists growl
Relaxation of some proposed puppy mill regulations has them biting back with billboards.

By GIL SMART, Associate Editor
Lancaster Online

It was supposed to be a great day for dogs, according to Pennsylvania Agriculture Secretary Russell C. Redding.

In late August a state panel approved new regulations for Pennsylvania dog breeders. Part of Act 119, the landmark dog law bill passed in 2008, the new rules would, for the first time, regulate ventilation, lighting, humidity and flooring in Pennsylvania's 111 commercial dog-breeding kennels.

"We have the highest standards for dogs raised in kennels" in the nation, Redding said. And the activists who fought so hard for the dog law, he said, should be both ecstatic and proud.

Instead, they're seething — and vowing to go to court to prevent the regulations from being implemented.

At issue is a provision that would permit pregnant or nursing dogs to be housed in cages with wire flooring, and another that would prevent some dogs from having unfettered access to an outdoor exercise area. Animal advocates say the inclusion of these provision undermines the law and will harm the dogs the legislation is supposed to protect.

Now, Pennsylvania Attorney General Tom Corbett must review the new regulations and sign off on them; Redding expects that will happen in the next few weeks, and if it does the laws would go into effect next July.

None of this will happen without a fight, activists say. More...

Republican Candidates Drinking Gas Drilling Companies Kool Aid

GOP Lt. Gov. candidate: No severance tax for Marcellus Shale
By C.J. Marshall (STAFF WRITER)
Daily Review

TOWANDA - While stumping in Bradford County on Friday, Republican candidate for Pennsylvania lieutenant governor James Cawley re-emphasized his running mate Tom Corbett's stand against imposing a severance tax on gas drilling industries who have been tapping into the Marcellus Shale.

Cawley, a Bucks County Commissioner, was at the Bradford County Courthouse on Friday campaigning for himself and Corbett, who is the Republican gubernatorial candidate in Pennsylvania.

The commonwealth currently has no severance tax on natural gas operations, a fact which has been heavily discussed by the state legislature for the past several months. A movement has been afoot in Harrisburg to impose a severance tax by October, and if approved by Gov. Ed Rendell would become law before Pennsylvania's new governor would be inaugurated following the General Election in November.

Corbett has expressed his opposition to a natural gas severance tax, and Cawley elaborated on his running-mate's position during a question-and-answer session Friday at the courthouse.

"We believe a severance tax on the Marcellus Shale is basically - to use the analogy - it's killing the goose that lays the golden eggs, and then cutting the goose open and finding that there are no eggs inside," Cawley explained. "If you make the tax structure in Pennsylvania uncompetitive with the rest of the country when it comes to natural gas exploration, those natural gas drillers are going to move somewhere else."

Port Allegany Class of 1960 To Present "Moments To Remember"

Do You Remember These Moments?
September is a time to be back in school. In the 50's, 60's and 70's along with school came the sock hops, the poodle skirts, v-neck sweaters and bobby socks.

Music was an important part of life during those years. You will be able to hear this music once again as it was played on the jukebox at the Sugar Bowl and McKenzies.

The Port Allegany class of 1960 is presenting a live musical revue with musicians, singers and dancers.

This show was written by Paul Herzig for the Potter Players to perform at the Consistory in Coudersport last September. It was so much fun and so well received that we thought it would be good to repeat it here in Port Allegany.

The show is being sponsored by the Port Allegany High School Class of 1960 (celebrating their 50 year reunion); Friends of the Library; the S.W. Smith Library board of directors, the Port Allegany United Methodist Church and Joel A. Anderson and Company, CPA, PC to benefit the library building fund.

Open to the public, " Moments to Remember" will be performed in the high school auditorium at 7:00 P.M. on September 24, 2010.

That date was chosen to coincide with the "All-Class Reunion" (Alumni) on the following evening. The tunes chosen for performance should bring back many fond memories to the graduates of those years and expose their younger friends and family to some of the culture of the 50's, 60's and 70's.

The principals involved in the production are: Paul Herzig, director; Joel Anderson, assistant; Carey Boyer, accompanist; Jack Krone, band director;
Nancy Evens and Anna Fair, staging; Cheryl Brown, costumes; Sandy Johnson, choreography; Tim Bennett, sound system.

Tickets are available in at the door or pre-sale: Port Pharmacy 814-642-2871, S.W. Smith Public Library and Joel Anderson CPA 814-642-9900

Route 15 Modernization Finished Up In About 2 Weeks

Route 15 project north of Trout Run updated; $60M modernization wraps up in about two weeks

Here’s a quick update on the Route 15 modernization project under construction between Trout Run and Buttonwood in northern Lycoming County.

The southbound lanes are now open to unrestricted traffic flow.

Northbound Route 15 from Trout Run to Buttonwood will be open to unrestricted traffic flow over the holiday weekend.

After the Labor Day holiday, northbound will have a lane restriction from the Green Mountain/Steam Valley Road interchange to the top of the mountain for guiderail installation. That lane restriction should be needed for no more than two weeks, after which the $60 million modernization project will be complete.

He will explain the Commission’s role as it relates to enforcing pollution laws and advising on Marcellus activities and make the case for enactment of the proposed severance tax. He will also describe the authority to enforce water pollution laws vested in the Commission as far back as 1909 and the important roles that Commission staff continues to play in making sure that Marcellus and other projects are designed and implemented with as little impact to the resource as possible.

Mr. Arway will explain how the Fish and Boat Commission wants to help the industry protect our waters and habitats and comply with the environmental laws that the General Assembly promulgates. Most people do not realize that the Commission relies almost entirely on fishing licenses, boat registrations, and federal funding tied to fishing and boating to pay for everything it does. This includes trying to keep pace and stay ahead of the curve on the current and projected impacts of Marcellus development to fishing, boating, and the resources the Commission is entrusted to protect.

In a sneak preview of his talk, Mr. Arway noted, “If we received a portion of a severance tax, we could take a collaborative approach with both the industry and the other agencies that are reviewing and advising on projects. Ultimately, we would like to have Commission staff in position to spend the necessary time reviewing and commenting on projects, working in the field with developers and other agencies and enforcing the water pollution laws of the Commonwealth to make sure our resources are protected. I truly believe that the public expect that service from us, and the resources under our jurisdiction depend upon it to survive.”

The program will also provide anglers and boaters an opportunity to meet Commissioner Mascharka, who joined the PFBC Board of Commissioners in June. Other groups expected to be at the meeting include the SONS of Lake Erie, Lawrence Park Fishing Club and Erie Sport Fishing Association.

The program is open to the public and plenty of free parking is available.

The mission of the Fish and Boat Commission is to protect, conserve, and enhance the Commonwealth’s aquatic resources and provide fishing and boating opportunities. For more information about fishing and boating in Pennsylvania, please visit www.fishandboat.com.

453 Killed in Drunk Driving Crashes Last Year In PA/Stay Safe

PennDOT and the PA DUI Association Demonstrate Ignition Interlock to Kick off the Labor Day Holiday Weekend

Clearfield – Representatives from PennDOT, the PA DUI Association, and the Clearfield County DUI Task Force, along with Clearfield County District Attorney William A. Shaw Jr., gathered today at Automart in Clearfield to demonstrate an ignition interlock device.

The demonstration was held in conjunction with the start of the Labor Day holiday weekend, which runs from Friday, September 3, at 6 p.m. until Monday, September 6, at midnight. According to PennDOT crash statistics, the Labor Day holiday is the fourth highest of the year for alcohol-related crashes.

Ignition interlock devices like the one shown today are required for motorists who wish to drive after their second or subsequent driving under the influence offense in a 10-year period. The interlock requires the driver to blow into a tube before starting his or her vehicle. The interlock will not allow a vehicle to start if the driver has consumed alcohol. Additionally, the driver is tested at random intervals while the vehicle is in operation. Currently, more than 5,700 Pennsylvania residents have the interlock installed on their vehicles.

In 2009, more than 47,000 attempts to drive while impaired were stopped in Pennsylvania due to the interlock device.

Last year 453 people were killed in Pennsylvania in drinking driver crashes. Of those fatalities, 20 occurred in the nine-county region that makes up PennDOT’s District 2.

For more information on ignition interlock and impaired driving enforcement, visit www.DriveSafePA.org.

PITT-BRADFORD THEATER PROFESSOR INVITED TO PRESENT AT SHAKESPEARE CONFERENCE

PITT-BRADFORD THEATER PROFESSOR INVITED TO PRESENT AT SHAKESPEARE CONFERENCE

BRADFORD, Pa. – Dr. Kevin Ewert, associate professor of theater at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford, was invited to present at the 34th Biannual International Shakespeare Conference held last month in England.

Ewert presented a paper titled “The Thrust Stage is Not a Direct Link to Shakespeare” at the conference hosted in Shakespeare’s hometown of Stratford-upon-Avon by The Shakespeare Institute at the University of Birmingham.

Ewert’s paper was critical of The Royal Shakespeare Co.’s marketing of its four-year, $173 million renovation of its Royal Shakespeare Theatre.

The RSC argued in its materials that the stage it was constructing – one on which the audience surrounds the stage on three sides and which was used in Shakespeare’s day – would be “the right space to present the work of Shakespeare.”

Ewert countered in his paper that the stage is only one part of the theatrical equation and that there is no one “right” kind of stage on which to perform any type of theater, even Shakespeare.

He argued that changing a theatrical space does not automatically change actor training and methodology, directorial preferences, modern design practice, use of technical elements or audience expectations that make up the whole theater experience.

The International Shakespeare Conference is an invitation-only gathering of leading Shakespeare scholars held every other year.

Ewert is the director of the theater program at Pitt-Bradford, where he teaches Introduction to Theater, Play Analysis, Movement and Stage Combat, Basic and Advanced Acting, and Shakespearean Performances. In addition, he directs the student production each semester.

He lives in Bradford with his wife and son.

Fall Harvest Market Today From 11 to 6 At Maple View

Community Garden: Share The Bounty, Learn More Today

communitygardenMembers of the public can purchase fresh vegetables and learn more about the successful Community Garden today (Thursday, Sept. 2) and again on Sept. 9 at the Maple View property, just off Rt. 872, in Coudersport.

The 4-H’s Science of Gardening program is holding a Fall Harvest Market from 11 am to 6 pm.

Additionally, at 5 pm there will be a tour of the garden and a recap of the project, with details on field trials, cover crops, this year’s growing season and plans for the 2011 garden.

Shown here are some of the young people involved when the Community Garden was launched last year, under the direction of Carrie Bowman, Cooperative Extension youth educator, and Bill Waltman, an Extension horticulturalist who serves as the program’s agricultural coordinator. Members of the Spud Growers FFA Chapter of Coudersport High School have also assisted.

Last year, the children were able to grow a variety of crops despite the wet weather. Some of the produce was donated to senior citizens and people in need, while some was sold to raise funds for 4-H. One of the goals of the program is to teach the children the difference between food out of the garden and food from the grocery store.

Crops have been grown without the use of pesticides. Crop rotations, composting, and cover crops are being used to move the garden toward organic certification in the coming years. The project’s “hands-on” nature also taught the group about the stages of plants, timing of insect arrivals, fungal diseases, pollination processes, and the role of rotations in soil health and quality.

Local farmers donated supplies and assistance. Many individuals helped financially by purchasing garden seeds from the young 4-H club members. For more information, email cbb136@psu.edu or 274-8540.

Man Doesn't Know Who He Is Or Where He's From

Cops need help learning man's identity
* Posted by: Eli George

PORTVILLE, N.Y. (WIVB) - Police need help identifying a man who they say can't remember who he is or where he came from.

He's approximately 45-50-years-old and may be from Pennsylvania. The man is 5'9", has blue eyes, brown hair with some grey, a grey beard, and is slightly balding. He weighs approximately 175 pounds and has scars, possibly from surgery, on the front and top of his right shoulder.

Police say residents from Emporium, PA, 60 miles away from Portville, saw the man around their area for three days, knocking on doors and asking for water. They did not report the man because he did not seem dangerous. Portville Police have tried using fingerprints, but the man does not appear to be in any databases.

If anyone has any information about this man, his identity, or where he is from, please contact the Portville Police Department at 716-933-8773. More...
