4 Year Old Rescued From Burning Bradford Apartment By Neighbor

A four year old girl was rescued from a burning apartment by a neighbor at 7 Center Street in Bradford, PA, just before 8:00 PM on Friday night.

Police: Latest Gricar reports are unfounded

Police: Latest Gricar reports are unfounded 

By Gary Sinderson 
WJAC

BELLEFONTE, Pa. – Bellefonte police said Friday that the recent reports that an inmate with ties to the biker gang Hells Angels knows what happened to missing District Attorney Ray Gricar are unsubstantiated claims. A few months ago, letters were sent by a Centre County resident, who’s jailed in a state prison, claimed he met someone behind bars who has information on what happened to Gricar. The letters, sent to several media outlets including 6 News said Gricar ran a corrupt district attorney's office and was in debt to the Hells Angels for a large sum of money. Key to the case is a former Hells Angel who police arrested after he beat a man with a baseball bat in a road rage incident near Port Matilda. Court records show the man was sentenced to 4 to 8 years in prison and was upset. The records also point to his Hells Angels past and a lengthy criminal record.

John Hanger wishes DEP secretary nominee well

John Hanger wishes DEP secretary nominee well

John Hanger


Nominee Christopher Abruzzo will lead a critical agency

Harrisburg – John Hanger said today that he wishes the new nominee to head the Department of Environmental Protection well in his confirmation process and as the leader of a critical state government agency.

“The Department of Environmental Protection is critical to the health and safety of Pennsylvania residents and to the health of our environment,” said Hanger. “I wish him well as he takes on this important responsibility.”

“I am glad to see the agency now has a permanent leader,” said Hanger. “This is not a time for politics. It’s time for DEP to move ahead under new leadership.”

###
Democratic candidate for Governor of Pennsylvania John Hanger is widely regarded as one of the most insightful and best informed progressive public policy experts in the state. Formerly a public-interest lawyer advocating on behalf of low-income families, John is nationally recognized as a leading authority on clean energy development and environmental protection. He served both Governors Casey and Rendell in key positions: first for Bob Casey as Commissioner of the Public Utilities Commission, where he successfully fought to cap electric rates to save Pennsylvania ratepayers billions and for two years as Secretary of the Department of Environmental Protection in the Rendell Administration. Throughout his career in public service, John has embodied the essence of his campaign slogan "Policy first, politics second."

PennDOT Places Speed Display Sign in McKean County

PennDOT Places Speed Display Sign in McKean County

Clearfield – Motorists on Route 46 in McKean County will be reminded to obey the posted speed limit after PennDOT placed a radar-controlled speed display sign yesterday. The placement will raise awareness of the 40-mile-per-hour speed limit in this area and aid in curbing a common type of aggressive driving.

The sign is located in the village of Farmers Valley, facing northbound traffic. The speed display sign uses radar to determine the speeds of oncoming traffic. Vehicle speeds are then posted on the lighted section of the sign.

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 more than 48 percent of McKean County crashes in 2012.

Learn more about aggressive driving at PennDOT’s highway safety website, www.JustDrivePA.com.

Economic Development Reps Tour Campus, Learn of Impact on Regional Industry

Economic Development Reps Tour Campus, Learn of Impact on Regional Industry

Penn State DuBois Assistant Professor of Materials Engineering Craig Stringer explains the functions of the 3-D printer to his left during the DCED tour of campus engineering facilities.
DuBOIS – Representatives from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) visited Penn State DuBois on Friday to learn more about engineering programs that are offered, and to tour the campus engineering facilities. The DCED supports engineering programs at Penn State DuBois through an annual grant that funds equipment and material purchases, and other costs. The visit was part of the thee-day DCED On the Road tour through the North Central Pennsylvania Region.

The DCED On the Road initiative has given state economic development experts a firsthand look at efforts taking place throughout the region that support industry and the economy. In a statement about the initiative DCED Secretary C. Alan Walker said, "The purpose of our three-day visit to the troops on the ground is to get the pulse of our partners in the field, to celebrate your successes and to learn how we can work together with you to be even more successful."

During their visit to Penn State DuBois, representatives of the DCED learned about the direct support that campus engineering programs provide to the regional powder metal (PM) industry. Professionals in the PM industry manufacture components for everything from automobiles to home appliances. Assistant Professor of Materials Engineering Craig Stringer offered a detailed presentation on two and four-year degree programs in engineering that are offered at the campus. He also explained the close relationships that the programs have with PM companies and the benefits that both parties enjoy.

"Industry relationships are turning into jobs for our students," Stringer said. "We have four to six students who plan to graduate this coming spring who have jobs lined up or have job offers already."

Stringer explained that he and his students provide research and development services for area companies, and often collaborate with those companies on special projects. Those projects prepare the students for the real-world and afford them opportunities to network within the industry. Stringer said, "The companies benefit from having projects completed, and we benefit from having our students get real-world, hands-on experience, and landing jobs."

Additionally, Penn State DuBois makes labs and equipment available for employees of area companies to use in their own projects and research.

Stringer also highlighted the thriving job market in the PM industry, underscoring the demand for skilled workers and the promising odds for success a new engineering graduate can have.

"There have been 50-plus jobs recently advertised in the papers in this region that require the skills that our students graduate with. We graduate about 12 students a year. That's a good ratio for those graduates."

DCED Manufacturing and Life Sciences Ombudsman Tom Palisin was among those who took in the campus tour and presentation. He remarked that the DCED has supported Penn State DuBois engineering programs for around 15 years. He said this visit proves their support is worthwhile.

"The powder metal industry is critical to the region, and the DCED has done well by investing in this school, which really caters to that industry," Palisin said. "The job market in the industry is good, and these programs help to train people for these jobs; it's all very good for the region."






Toomey Working To Repeal Obamacare

Pat Toomey | U.S. Senator For Pennsylvania
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2013
Standing With Pennsylvanians Against The President's Health Care Law
This week, I took additional steps in my continuing effort to defund, delay, and ultimately repeal the president's health care law. In the Senate, I co-sponsored two bills to delay for one year either a portion or all of the law's onerous mandates and taxes. Both bills delay the individual and employer mandates that go into effect Jan. 1, 2014

Obamacare is fundamentally wrong in its approach to improving our nation's health care system. It should be repealed in its entirety. 

Since taking office in 2011, I have repeatedly advocated for repealing Obamacare. I have worked with Senate colleagues on both sides of the aisle on a broad array of strategies to dismantle it, such as repealing the medical device tax, which stands to cost Pennsylvania's economy $100 million annually. I have also co-sponsored legislation that eliminates the health insurance tax and the Independent Payment Advisory Board.
I continue to work to overturn this law. Lacking that, Congress should at least delay the implementation of its heavy-handed mandates to prevent imminent harm to Pennsylvanians' pocketbooks, jobs, and economic wellbeing.

Thompson: Environmental Protection Agency’s New Coal Regulation Will Harm Economy, Raise Utility Rates and Hurt Consumers

Thompson: Environmental Protection Agency’s New Coal Regulation Will Harm Economy, Raise Utility Rates and Hurt Consumers

Calls for legislative action to prevent EPA’s regulatory overreach


Washington, D.C. – U.S. Representative Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson, R-Howard, today issued the following statement criticizing the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) decision to prevent construction of new coal-fired power plants, the result of the agency’s New Source Performance Standard (NSPS) rule:

“Today’s announcement by the EPA represents a direct attack on the American consumer, affordable electricity, and the economic security of Pennsylvanians. Developing our abundant coal resources while safeguarding the environment and the nation’s economic health is the only path we can take to obtain energy security. Unfortunately, the President’s plan to eliminate coal as a source of energy in this country, through mandates that are impossible to meet, moves us in the opposition direction.

“This action is a blatant attempt by the Obama Administration to bankrupt the coal industry, which provides almost 44% of power generation in the commonwealth, and will lead to higher utility rates for Pennsylvanians and impose harm upon local economies across the country. This is a gross regulatory overreach that will have devastating consequences, and I will be working in the House to prevent implementation of this harmful regulation.”

In 2008, then-candidate Barack Obama, in forecasting his administration’s policy on coal, stated the following: “So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can. It’s just that it will bankrupt them.”

After previous legislative proposals were rejected by the Democratic-led Senate, the President in June of 2013 announced his plans to unilaterally impose new energy regulations, including far-reaching mandates on coal-fired power plants, as announced today by EPA.

Newspaper source: Missing DA was killed by Hells Angels

Newspaper source: Missing DA was killed by Hells Angels

 By: WJAC Web Staff 

CENTRE COUNTY, Pa. -- Eight years ago, former Centre County District Attorney Ray Gricar disappeared without a trace. Now, new information is surfacing that suggests Gricar was murdered by members of the Hells Angels motorcycle club. 

According to The Altoona Mirror, a former Hells Angel told the newspaper that another former Hells Angel ordered Gricar's murder. He said the killing was ordered because the Gricar had imposed a prison sentence for an assault conviction. 

The source told the newspaper that he went to a field in Pennsylvania with the FBI to show officials where Gricar's remains were buried. He said he did not disclose the location to officials because there are other bodies and guns buried there, and he's worried he could be charged in those crimes. 

6 News spoke to investigators Friday morning who confirmed that the FBI is following up on the man's story. Stay with 6 News and WJACTV.com for continuing coverage.

UNIQUE PRODUCTION OF ‘OUR TOWN’ COMING TO PITT-BRADFORD

UNIQUE PRODUCTION OF ‘OUR TOWN’ COMING TO PITT-BRADFORD


A unique production of the classic play “Our Town” will be presented by Little Green Pig Theater next week at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford.

Thornton Wilder’s popular Pulitzer-prize winning drama will take the stage at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 28 in the Bromeley Family Theater in Blaisdell Hall.

The Five Points Star arts blog called the Little Green Pig production “a fresh, innovative, heart-squeezing new production.”

Performed with an all African-American cast, director Jay O’Berski told the Chapel Hill (N.C.) News that the Durham, N.C., theater group follows Wilder’s story line.

“It’s a place where birth, weddings and death are unencumbered by the sensationalistic elements that normally accompany black stories in modern media. It’s a look at what was and what is, through the lens of America’s most produced, iconic play.”

Five Points said the cast, which must play multiple roles, is “uniformly strong,” and particularly praised J. Alphonse Nicholson as teenager George Gibbs and Aurelia Belfield as protagonist Emily Webb.

Dr. Kevin Ewert, professor of theater at Pitt-Bradford, said, “In 2006, Little Green Pig did Checkhov’s ‘The Cherry Orchard’ with an all-black cast. It was extraordinary. It was like watching a new play that also happened to be this great classic, where the quiet museum reverence was traded in for something with a lot more life in it. ‘Our Town’ is being similarly reinvented.”

Little Green Pig is a nonprofit theater company with a model that is experimental but accessible, strange and dreamlike, but familiar and immediate.

Tickets are $6 for the public and $2 for all students and may be purchased through the Bromeley box office by calling (814)362-5113.

State ponies up money for PA Wilds in Elk County

Courier Express
The PA Wilds continues to see economic growth.

Department of Community and Economic Development Secretary C. Alan Walker announced money for two small business expansions Thursday that will promote the Wilds and spur business growth and job creation in north central Pennsylvania.

“Supporting the growth of small business remains a top priority of the governor. They are an economic driver that accounts for nearly one half of the state’s private sector employment,” Walker said. “Today we are helping two rural small businesses expand and create jobs.”

An $85,516 Film Tax Credit was awarded to TomBob Outdoors and Continuous Metal Technology to film the second season of the show, “Friends in Wild Places,” which airs on the Pursuit Channel. The show promotes the outdoor products of the two Pennsylvania-based companies as well as other lawn, garden and automotive products.

 A $200,000 Small Business First Loan was awarded to enable cabin rental company Wapiti Woods to expand operations. The company, located in Benezette Township, will build four new rustic cabins. The cabins, located in heart of The Wilds, offer a quiet retreat for visitors to enjoy the Pennsylvania scenery. The expansion will create three new jobs.  Read more...

Coudersport Receives Flood Control Grant

The Commonwealth Financing Authority this week awarded $466,730 to Coudersport for a flood control project. The grant will be used to raise the levee, add an embankment and remove debris and sediments from the Allegheny River levee. The borough also will modify the Mill Creek levee by raising it, adding embankment material and removing debris and sediments. The repairs and upgrades will allow for Federal Emergency Management Agency certification and accreditation, which ensures homeowners and businesses in the area remain eligible for repair and rehabilitation funds. This funding is an important investment in maintaining our flood-control infrastructure, which is vital to public health and safety in Coudersport and areas downstream.
