Four Coudersport women were injured Thursday as a result of a 8:20 AM accident on Route 872, about 1/4 mile south of Kio Road in Eulalia Township. Two of them were subsequently flown by medical helicopter to Robert Packer Hospital in Sayre.

The crash occurred as Stephanie Deutschlander, 32, of Coudersport, PA, driving a 2008 Ford Fusion, was following behind a slow moving 2002 PennDOT street sweeper driven by John J. Wiles of Roulette, PA.

Josefina V. Hughes, 51, of Coudersport, PA, and Novelyn Williams, 32, of Coudersport, PA, were passengers in Mickle's Subaru. 

Deutschlander and Mickle were transported to Cole Memorial for treatment. Hughes and Williams were also transported to Cole Memorial and subsequently flown to Robert Packer Hospital in Sayre.  Wiles was not injured in the crash. Everyone in this crash was wearing seatbelts according to Trooper Matthew Montag, who is investigating.

Coudersport Fire Rescue, Coudersport, Austin and Roulette Ambulances, and Medics assisted at the scene.

Both of the automobiles were disabled and towed from the scene.

PITT-BRADFORD TO HOLD SYMPOSIUM ON ‘THE REALITY OF ARAB SPRING’

BRADFORD, Pa. – The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford will hold a social sciences symposium to examine “The Reality of Arab Spring and Middle-East Politics” next week.

The symposium, which will feature retired Army Col. Wes Martin and Kamal Jabar, former cultural advisor to the U.S. forces in Iraq, will take place from 7 to 9 p.m. April 15 in the Lester and Barbara Rice Auditorium in Fisher Hall. The event is free and open to the public and will include refreshments. A question and answer session will follow the formal presentations.

Martin and Jabar have worked closely together since 2005, when both were members of the U.S. forces in Iraq.

A retired active duty officer, Martin is now a member of the Pitt-Bradford faculty. He has testified numerous times before the U.S. congress and parliaments of Canada, Great Britain and the European Union about the current Middle-East situation. Martin also works closely with the Iranian resistance, striving to replace the religious extremist government of Iran with democracy.

Raised in Iraq, Jabar served with Kurdish fighters battling Saddam Hussein. Eventually, Jabar came to the United States with his family and became a U.S. citizen. He returned to Iraq with American forces and worked with senior officials of the U.S. and Iraqi government. He has just returned from Iraq.

Capitol Update
Friday, April 11, 2014 The latest news from the State Capitol

Suicide Prevention Measure Advances in House


In keeping with ongoing efforts to protect Pennsylvania’s children, the House this week approved legislation requiring the state Department of Education to create a model youth suicide awareness and prevention policy and curriculum for both students and staff. Schools may, but are not required to, adopt the model policy, which will be developed in conjunction with a youth suicide prevention organization in the Commonwealth.

The goal of the legislation is to save lives and help troubled students receive the help they need before injuring themselves or others. House Bill 1559 is awaiting a final vote in the Senate.
  

Committee OKs More Jail Time for Repeat DUI Offenders


 
A driver who repeatedly operates a vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol and kills another individual will face greater jail time under legislation reported from the House Judiciary Committee this week.

House Bill 1733 would apply to DUI offenders who have at least one prior drunk driving conviction or major traffic offense such as vehicular homicide or vehicular assault. The bill would enhance penalties for vehicular homicide while driving under the influence from a second-degree felony to a first-degree felony, and lengthen the jail sentence from three to five years.

Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol causes nearly 10,000 deaths and 350,000 injuries annually on our highways, yet people convicted of DUI often continue to do so. Studies have shown that nearly 2 million drunk drivers on the nation’s highways have a prior conviction, including 400,000 who have five or more.

The bill now moves to the full House for consideration.
  

PSP Joins National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day

Replacement of Two Bridges on Route 770 Starts Monday in McKean County

Bradford - Work to replace two bridges on Route 770 in Bradford Township will get under way Monday, April 14. When work is complete next summer, area drivers will enjoy safer travel over modern structures and PennDOT will be able to remove the bridges from McKean County’s structurally deficient list.

The bridges span Minard Run about a half-mile apart near the village of Aiken. They carry an average of more than 3,000 vehicles daily. Originally built in 1927, the bridges will be replaced one side at a time.

Preliminary work begins Monday and will include sign setting, erosion and sedimentation controls, surveying, and utility work. Drivers should be alert for flaggers in the roadway, controlling an alternating traffic pattern during the preliminary work phase.

In early May, temporary traffic signals will be in place, enforcing an alternating traffic pattern at each bridge. Overall work includes replacement of the bridges, roadway and approach paving, guide rail updates, pavement markings, and miscellaneous items. The contractor for this $2.5 million job is L. C. Whitford of Wellsville, New York. All work is weather and schedule dependent.

Drivers are reminded to proceed through all work zones with caution, obey posted speed limits and always buckle up.

Community Foundation has Scholarships Available for seniors at Northern Potter School District

Community Foundation has Scholarships Available for seniors at Northern Potter School District

Thanks to generous donors, the Community Foundation for the Twin Tiers (CFTT) has two scholarships available to Northern Potter seniors.

The Northern Potter Scholarship was established by a retired school teacher. It has been growing with the support of numerous community members who are dedicated to its mission “to assist Northern Potter seniors in a post-secondary education”. The goal of the fund is to grow large enough to award at least $40,000 annually. Gifts towards this fund are matched at 50% by a local donor. This scholarship will provide for a $1000 scholarship to be awarded this year.

The Darlene J. Sitler Memorial Scholarship Fund was established by four of Darlene’s former students. This fund has also been growing thanks to many local donors who want to continue Darlene’s legacy of compassion and enthusiasm for her students. This scholarship is for a student who participated in Northern Potter’s music program and who plans to attend a four year college or university in pursuit of a degree in any field of education. This fund will award $1,000 this year, thanks to a donation from the American Legion Post #963 in Ulysses.

Interested students can contact their school guidance counselor or CFTT at 570-888-4759 for more information or an application.

Both these funds continue to grow in order to award more scholarships to Northern Potter students. If you’re interested in contributing to these scholarships, please visit CFTT’s web-site at www.twintierscf.org and click “donate”. A drop down box will appear and you can pick either Northern Potter Scholarship Fund or the Darlene J. Sitler Memorial Scholarship Fund to contribute. You can also send a check to CFTT with the scholarship fund name you’re contributing to in the memo.

DEP Fines Range Resources-Appalachia LLC $75,000 for Lycoming County Brine Spill

DEP Fines Range Resources-Appalachia LLC $75,000 for Lycoming County Brine Spill

WILLIAMSPORT -- The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) today announced that it has fined Range Resources-Appalachia LLC of Fort Worth, Texas, $75,000 for a July 2012 manufactured brine spill of 3,066 gallons at its Cornwall Mountain Hunting Club Unit A well pad in Lewis Township, Lycoming County.

“This was a significant spill that Range reported to the department but did not properly remediate until nearly a year later,” DEP Director of District Oil and Gas Operations John Ryder said.

The department’s investigation determined that a leak from the manhole cover on a manufactured brine storage tank caused the brine to flow off the well pad, over an access road and into an unnamed tributary leading to Trout Run, a high quality stream. However, there is no evidence the brine reached Trout Run.

Range reported the leak occurred during a rainstorm, resulting in a mixture of brine solution and rainwater entering storm water swales, trenches and retention basins around the well pad. Due to the volume of the solution that leaked and mixed with heavy rainfall, the structures were overwhelmed, allowing the fluid to travel down to the unnamed tributary.

Range submitted a final closure report to DEP on June 21, 2013, which was approved by the department on July 9, 2013. The company removed 1,294 tons of contaminated soil from the impacted area, which was properly disposed at the Wayne Township Landfill in Clinton County.

DEP staff documented existing contamination and remediation issues at the site in eight inspections between July 24, 2012 and March 28, 2013.

Chief Forest Fire warden urges fishermen to be cautious with campfires

Trout season opens statewide tomorrow. And with it comes increased wildfire danger.

Chief Forest Fire warden urges fishermen to be cautious with campfires as the spring fire season is once again upon us. Many large destructive wildfires occurred on Thursday across Pennsylvania, damaging buildings and hundreds of acres of forest land. Those who head to streams on state forests for the opening weekend of trout season are reminded that open fires are prohibited on State Forest Land from March 1 – May 25 without authorization from the District Forester. County wide burn bans are currently in place in Montour and Schuylkill counties.

If you have a campfire please use proper precautions. Clear the area around the fire prior to starting it, keep the fire small and never leave it unattended. Before you strike a campfire match, first consider if it is too warm, dry or windy for a fire and if the surrounding area is free of leaves and other combustibles. Make sure there is a ready source of water (Bucket or hose) nearby and a rake to extinguish any embers that might escape. When you are done with the fire put it out with water until all ashes are cold to the touch. 


Remember, it only takes one spark to start a fire and if a campfire escapes and becomes a wildfire you will be responsible for the suppression costs. With your help we can protect our lands from forest fires.

Good Luck, Randy White, 

Chief Forest Fire Warden, 
Pennsylvania Bureau of Forestry

NY State Police in Troop A begin "Operation Hang Up" to stop distracted driving

State Police in Troop A begin "Operation Hang Up" to stop distracted driving

April 10, 2014 - April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month and traffic crashes continue to be the greatest threat to the safety of the average New Yorker and the number one killer of teens in America.  Cell phone use and texting are responsible for a significant proportion of traffic crashes, injuries, and deaths. These behaviors continue to become increasingly common despite their obvious danger.

State and local law enforcement are participating in stepped up traffic safety enforcement efforts including “Operation Hang Up” announced by Governor Cuomo yesterday. “Operation Hang Up” will consist of high visibility, stepped up cell phone and texting enforcement statewide April 10 – April 15.

“The NY State Police has always been in the forefront of trying to keep our highways safe for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians. Operation Hang Up is a campaign about protecting everyone using our roads and highways from preventable injuries and property damage caused by distracted drivers using cell phone and other electronic devices,” said Major Michael Cerretto, Troop A Commander.

The dates for this year’s spring "Operation Hang-Up Campaign" correspond with a coordinated nationwide effort to combat distracted driving through ad campaigns and enforcement. In response, Troop A will partner up with other law enforcement agencies and will make distracted driving enforcement a priority.

Operation Hang-Up will run from Thursday, April 10, through Tuesday, April 15, 2014.

Think About It

Judgment

Judging others seems to be a pastime that many indulge themselves in today. They are quick at finding fault in others and are quick to point it out. I’m not sure if the ability to judge others causes the person doing the judgment to feel better about himself or herself or more superior, or if it’s that they just don’t know any better.

It is safe to say that there are different types of judgment. There is the judgment that is judicial in nature in that it passes a sentence. It is a judgment that is rendered down by a judge and with it, penalties. This judgment typically carries with it a cost to the one who is judged and it is a judgment that establishes fact. There is also judgment that is functional in nature. Judging an action and declaring it to be foolish is an example of this. However, if one were to determine that the one doing the act was a fool, then this would be an example of passing judgment, or declaring a fact.

The Scriptures tell us to not judge or more literally, don’t condemn or you will be condemned, (Matthew 7:1). The key word is condemnation, (passing a sentence or a statement of fact). In other words, it isn’t telling us not to use wisdom and to judge between right and wrong, or healthy and unhealthy, but rather to not pass a judgment or condemnation. Unfortunately we often include the individual with the act and condemn both.

For many, they need to keep their opinions to themselves because they actually do the one thing that we’re told not to do. When you condemn others you are actually condemning yourself. With each finger you’re pointing towards others, there are three pointing back at yourself. For those that misinterpret words that address a behavior and does not relate to the individual, get over it and hear what’s being said. For example, confronting someone about their alcohol and/or drug use is about a behavior, the judge, should they end up in court, will pass the judgment and condemn them to jail and/or treatment. Bottom line, both types of judgment are valuable to society, you just need to know which one to use. Think about it.
