Urbina--Drillers Moving In On South Africa

Farmers and others see 'fracking' as threat to thirsty South Africa land
Saturday, December 31, 2011
By Ian Urbina, The New York Times

KAROO, South Africa -- Covering much of the roughly 800 miles between Johannesburg and Cape Town, this arid expanse -- its name means "thirsty land" -- sees less rain in some parts than the Mojave Desert.

Even so, Shell and several other large energy companies hope to drill thousands of natural gas wells in the region, using a new drilling technology that can require 1 million gallons of water or more for each well. Companies will also have to find a way to dispose of all the toxic wastewater or sludge that each well produces, since the closest landfill or industrial-waste facility that can handle the waste is hundreds of miles away.

"Around here, the rain comes on legs," said Chris Hayward, 51, a brawny, dust-covered farmer in Beaufort West, quoting a Karoo saying about how rare and fleeting precipitation is in the area.

bloodCommunity Blood Bank and the Potter County Commissioners are making a special appeal to the public to join county employees in supporting a blood collection drive on Thursday, Dec. 29, at the Gunzburger Building gymnasium in Coudersport. It will be in operation from 11 am to 3 pm. No appointment is needed.

All donors who turn out on Thursday will receive a gift. Five donors each hour will win a coupon book valued at more than $25, redeemable at a local retailer. More information on the Thursday’s blood drive is available from Lora Cope at 570-789-4026 or 1-877-842-0631. General information on blood donation is available at 1-877-842-0631, or online here.

On November 1, 2011 at 18 Second Street in Roulette, Jennifer Flynn, 38, of 52 Second Street, Roulette, provided State Police with information on a domestic incident that occurred at 8:00 pm that evening.

As a result of that information, Kenneth Rushmore, 39, of 52 Second Street, Roulette was arrested and charged with Simple Assault.

Charges of False Reports To Law Enforcement Authorities and Unsworn Falsification To Authorities are pending against Flynn in District Court 55-4-01.

Man Cited For Hit & Run In Early Morning Exit

A Shinglehouse man wasn't hurt, but now he's facing Hit & Run charges in District Court after an eventful exit from the Shinglehouse Legion parking lot off Route 44 in Sharon Township.

Samuel F. Mesler Jr., 45, of Shinglehouse, PA, was apparently having trouble navigating his 2003 Chevrolet CK 1500 when he left the American Legion parking lot at 3:00 am last Saturday morning.

Trooper Neil R. Fausey, who investigated, said the crash occurred as Mesler was departing the parking lot, when his vehicle contacted the Legion building on the west side. Then the vehicle drove through the yard of the Legion, hitting a wooden fence attached to the Legion, continued easterly through the Legion yard, where it hit a UGI gas meter in the Legion yard near the roadway.

Medic 6 Unit Hit Deer In Roulette Township

Response Slightly Delayed As Medic Unit Hits Deer
At 4:20 am on December 24 th, Paramedic Charlotte L. Nelson, 44, of Roulette, PA, was responding to an emergency call in Roulette, when a deer entered the roadway in front of the westbound 2008 GMC Yukon Medic 6 Unit on Route 6 in the area of Potter Pak.


Nelson was unable to avoid striking the whitetail. She was wearing her seatbelt and was not injured, but she had to call the Roulette Ambulance personnel to come and get her and take her to the call, as the medic unit had been disabled and was leaking fluids.

State Police, who were also en route to the call, and Roulette Firefighters, helped her get the dead deer out of the roadway.

They continued to the original call.

Vehicle Avoids Car Crash But Hits House

A Bradford man was moderately injured Wednesday afternoon at 4:36 pm when he swerved his vehicle to avoid hitting a stopped car in front of him, and instead struck a house and sheared off a gas meter allowing natural gas to escape into the air.

Richard B. Green, 69, of Bradford, PA, was transported by Bradford City Ambulance to Bradford Regional Health Center, after he was removed from the crashed vehicle. State Police described his injuries as moderate.

In a news release, Trooper Daniel J. Woods wrote that the crash occurred as Green's 2006 Chrysler 300 was traveling north on Rt. 219 in Lewis Run Borough when Green attempted to stop for a car that was stopped in front of him. Knowing he was not going to be able to stop, he swerved the car to the right, left the roadway and struck the residence located at 1459 South Avenue.

Green was wearing a seat belt. Lewis Run Volunteer Fire Dept. closed the road for a short time while they extricated Green from the vehicle and managed to shut off the gas line. Natural Fuel Gas was called to the scene.

Green was cited for (not) Driving Vehicle At Safe Speed. Clayt's Towing removed the vehicle.

PENNVEST, DEP Announce First Nutrient Credit Trading Auction for 2012

PENNVEST, DEP Announce First Nutrient Credit Trading Auction for 2012

Harrisburg - The Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority and the Department of Environmental Protection announced today they will host an auction March 21, 2012, for the sale and purchase of nutrient credits in the Susquehanna and Potomac watersheds.

The auction will be a “forward” auction, where certified credits will be sold at auction, delivered later and applied to 2012 and future compliance years. The auction will afford wastewater treatment plants in these two watersheds the opportunity to purchase credits as a means of meeting their nitrogen and phosphorus discharge limits for the compliance years.

The Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority (PENNVEST) is hosting the auctions to encourage the trading of nutrient credits in the Susquehanna and Potomac watersheds. DEP’s nutrient credit trading program provides a cost-effective means for facilities that are subject to nitrogen and phosphorus limits to meet those limits by working with other facilities, non-point sources or both.

PENNVEST has chosen Markit Inc. to provide the platform for enrollment and eligibility, auctions and registry services. Markit, a financial information services company, has provided operations and infrastructure services to environmental programs worldwide.


PENNVEST anticipates charging buyers and sellers 2.5 cents per credit to offset administrative costs.

For more information, visit www.pennvest.state.pa.us and click on “nutrient credit trading” on the left side of the page; or call 717-783-6776 (PENNVEST) or 717-772-4785 (DEP).

Robert J.G. Whelpley of Sun City West, Arizona; Wellsville Native

WELLSVILLE —On Dec. 25, 2011, Robert J.G. Whelpley of Sun City West, Arizona, was called to the Lord’s house after a brief illness. His wife and daughter were with him at the time of his death.

Robert was born on Nov. 5, 1929, to William and Marion (Senft) Whelpley in Wellsville. He graduated from Wellsville High School. On Nov. 11, 1950 he married Agatha Wasserloos (Bunny), who survives him.

Bob’s interest in agriculture and hard work ethic led him to start farming on Voorhees Hill in Wellsville while still in high school.

Also, he was honored with many Future Farmer awards and was recognized nationally by the American Agriculturalist as “American Farmer of the Year.”

After graduation, he became a dairy farmer on Trapping Brook Road in Andover, where he and Bunny would start a family. He went to work for Paul Culbert and Sons for several years and then purchased the John Deere dealership in 1958. He owned and operated Whelpley Implement Company in Wellsville until 1982, when he sold the business and retired. Mr. and Mrs. Whelpley officially relocated to Sun City West in 1988 and enjoyed many wonderful days with their new friends.

Bob was an individual who did not make public showings of his compassion but preferred to do his good deeds in private. He loaned people equipment and tools they needed in an emergency. He gave to individuals and organizations to help them, always without the desire for recognition.
Bob and Bunny attended church regularly, first at First Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in Wellsville, and for many years at the Crown of Life Lutheran Church in Sun City West, Ariz.

Bob is survived by his beloved wife, Bunny; sons, Dr. Robert (Joan) Whelpley of Almond, Dennis (Deborah) Whelpley of Sackets Harbor, John (Karen) Whelpley of Olean and their daughter Dr. Janet Whelpley of Syracuse. Bob also has five grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. He was predeceased by a brother, William Whelpley, and a son, David Whelpley.

There will be no visitation and a private family service will be scheduled later at the convenience of the family. Memorials may be made to Gideon’s International or the Salvation Army.
