Synopsis:

Charlize 'Charlie' McCloud, young widow and mother, is seemingly content with her secluded life on a sprawling Texas ranch. Her moonlit horseback rides provide the perfect dreamscape to obsessively reminisce about her college sweetheart—her first and final love—Cash McCloud.
When intern Hunter Bowie arrives on her ranch to work for the summer, his engaging persona threatens Charlie's treasured reliving. Her interest in moving on as departed as her late husband, Hunter's youthful exuberance and guitar revives dreams she once laid to rest.
Hunter's presence stirs up everyone around the ranch, including her late husband's older brother, Cage McCloud. A near replica of Cash, Cage's very existence is a painstaking reminder of how much she has lost.
Unintentionally revealing the truth about Cash's death, Cage sets off a firestorm of emotions, ultimately propelling Charlie to face her future—hopefully one that includes him.

Watch Press Conference On Eric Frein Manhunt at 1:00 PM Live on WHTM-TV



LIVE BROADCAST SCHEDULED FOR 1:00 PM ON SATURDAY HAS ENDED.

Wayne-Pike News

Surrounded by notes and posters made by children to encourage and support the PA State Police and other searchers in the manhunt for suspect gunman Eric Frein, Gov. Tom Corbett reiterated the Commonwealth's determination to capture and prosecute the man believed responsible for the killing one and wounding another State Trooper on Sept. 12.

He thanked the men and women in the field, the families, the first responders, the Red Cross, local restaurants and other state and federal agencies for their support.

The search area has moved south into Paradise and Pocono Townships in Monroe County. Police have had no sightings of Frein for a week in the area of Canadensis, but overnight there has been a highly credible sighting near Pocono Mountain East High School, which Frein attended.
Lt. Col. George Bivens said a woman walking past a woodline encountered what police believe was Frein in the woods not far from the school. He said the woman was 10 to 15 feet from the person during what Bivens called a surprise encounter, and she gave police significant detail.
He also said two Cresco residents also found what they believe to be blood on closed porches on their property. Police are awaiting test results on that substance.

Roger L. Larson, of Duke Center, PA

Roger L. Larson, of Duke Center, PA, passed away Wednesday (Oct. 15, 2014) at UPMC Hamot, Erie, following many years of ill health.

Born May 26, 1940, in Smethport, he was the son of the late Raymond J. and Alena Abbey Larson of Eldred. On Aug. 6, 1966, he married the former Jane McClean, of Olean, at The First Baptist Church, Olean.

Roger was a 1958 graduate of Otto Township High School, Duke Center. Following graduation, he went to work in the office of Bradley Builders in Olean as a bookkeeper. When the owners decided to expand their contracting business to include kitchen remodeling, Roger became their
salesman/designer. This was the beginning of what would become a successful sales career that lasted until his retirement. 

In 1967, Roger went to work for Life Savers Inc., now part of Kraft Foods Inc. While working there, he formed his own company, Duke Center Supply, where he designed and sold kitchens along with his friend George Packer, of Olean. 

Roger left Life Savers Inc. in 1979, when he was recruited to work for Hunt-Wesson Foods, now part of ConAgra, where he won many national awards for his sales efforts. He left the company in 1997, following a corporate buy out to work in the private sector. 

He established his own company, Moody Supply, buying and selling antique pocket watches and jewelry. He continued this business while working as a salesman for former Race Buick, Pontiac, Olds and GMC on South Avenue in Bradford, and then Rink Brothers Chrysler dealership on East Main Street in Bradford, until Rink Brothers closed in 2009.

 His hobbies included hunting, collecting antique pocket watches, boating on the Kinzua Reservoir, attending local stock car races and watching NASCAR. 

He was a former member and past president of the Otto Township Lions Club, National Watch and Clock Collectors, a “Den Dad” for Cub Scout Pack 413 and a member of the Duke Center United
Methodist Church.

He is survived by his wife, Jane Larson; a son, John A. Larson, of Duke Center; two aunts, Olive Eckstrom of Smethport and Doris Abbey of Coudersport; and many cousins.

Per his wishes, there will be no visitation or funeral service. A committal service will be held at a later date.

Memorials may be made to Otto Ambulance Association, P.O. Box 35, Duke Center, PA 16729; Otto Twp. VFD, P.O. Box 192, Duke Center, PA 16729; or the Otto/Otto-Eldred Alumni Scholarship Fund c/o CRCF, 120 N. Union St., Olean, NY 14760.

Pennsylvania became the first state to safeguard 500,000th acre of farmland



Message from George Greig
Secretary of Agriculture

Yesterday we celebrated a milestone for our country, when we became the first state to safeguard our 500,000th acre of farmland. Gov. Corbett joined me for the ceremony at Flinchbaugh’s Orchard and Farm Market outside Hellam, York Co., where he also proclaimed Oct. 16, 2015, as Farmland Preservation Day in PA. Past PA Ag Secretary Boyd Wolff, who championed the program’s creation in 1988, was on hand, too. It was a time for us to reflect on the work that brought us here, celebrate the significance of the half-million acre mark, and look forward to the future of farmland preservation in PA. 

The success of our program, the model for preservation across the United States, comes only through the work of many hands, from farmers to program administrators to all Pennsylvanians who three times went to the ballot box to approve statewide bond initiatives to give extra funding for protecting farmland. Pennsylvanians are generous people. Yesterday we gave another gift to our children, and their children, and their children’s children, and to people around the world. We give them the gift of land that will always produce crops – the land that ensures PA will always stay green and growing.

Remembering a Man Who Bettered PA Agriculture
Gov. Tom Corbett ordered all PA flags to fly at half-staff until Monday at sunset in honor of York Co. Senator and former Farm Show Exec. Director Mike Waugh. The former senator died on Wed., Oct. 8 at his farm. His life will be celebrated at a public memorial service on Monday, Oct. 20, at 6 p.m. in the Farm Show Complex and Expo Center's Equine Arena. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that contributions be made to his favorite ag foundations.

Comment Deadline for WOTUS Quickly Approaching
This week PDA participated in a roundtable with ag groups and local gov't orgs on the EPA and Army Corps of Engineers Waters of the U.S. proposed rule. Sen. Pat Toomey and Congressman Scott Perry led the discussion. PDA called for the EPA to withdraw the proposed rule and consult with state and local gov'ts. More than 400,000 comments have been submitted to date. Comment deadline is Nov. 14.

Verizon Wireless project will expand cellphone coverage to almost 90 percent of Potter County

Expanded Cellphone Service Infrastructure Being Built

verizontowerVerizon Wireless marches forward with a project that will expand cellphone coverage to include almost 90 percent of Potter County, according to county officials.  More than two dozen tower sites have been approved so far and others are in the permitting process. Many are under construction. Company officials still can’t say when the broadened service will be available.

Each site will be a 200′ x 200′ plot upon which a lattice tower as well as a small pre-cast concrete equipment shed are built. Extensive engineering work has already gone into the selection process for each site to assure reliable service and maximum coverage. Most of the sites are being leased by Verizon from private landowners. The towers will be no more than 200 feet tall. Verizon said the extended construction period had been anticipated at the start of the multi-million dollar project. Steep terrain has been a big challenge at some of the tower sites. Additionally, access roads have to be built and, at some of the sites, forested areas need to be cleared.

Crittenden Hosts Dinner Presentation With Journalists on National Tour

Crittenden Hosts Dinner Presentation With Journalists on National Tour

 Melissa Troutman and Joshua Pribanic will present after a buffet dinner at
Crittenden in Coudersport, Saturday, October 25th. Photo by Public Herald.
The Crittenden Taproom in downtown Coudersport will host “Water Under The Bridge,” a dinner presentation by Public Herald co-founders Melissa Troutman and Joshua Pribanic, on Saturday, October 25th. A buffet dinner featuring local produce, vegetarian and gluten-free options will begin at 6:00 p.m. and the presentation starts at 7:00.
“We’ll be releasing public files that haven’t seen the light of day, including maps of important information for property owners and public officials alike,” said Pribanic.

Public Herald, a nonprofit for investigative journalism, was awarded a grant in April 2014 from Investigative News Network and The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation to tour their acclaimed documentary Triple Divide across the United States. The team screened 34 times in 13 states since June 20th.

Triple Divide, named after Potter County’s triple continental divide, is the result of a 22-month report on how unconventional oil and gas extraction — aka fracking — is being handled by industry and government. The filmmakers do not draw conclusions about fracking, but instead rely on facts, science and impacted residents to speak for themselves.

Tesla Motors provided their top model all-electric vehicle for the tour, allowing the journalists to travel 15,000 miles without gasoline. Troutman and Pribanic will have the car on hand for attendees to get into before and after their presentation. Their program will include photography from the tour, stories on water across the nation, new investigations in Potter, Tioga and Bradford county, a new documentary project and ways the public is getting involved.

For reservations, call Crittenden at 814-274-8320. Buffet is $15.95 and includes drink. Presentation is free.

Women Leaders Recognize Congressman Thompson


DUBOIS, PA – A Press Conference will be on Monday, October 20th, 2014 at 3:00 PM at the DuBois Business College, 1 Beaver Drive, DuBois, PA 15801 to recognize the leadership of Congressman Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson on women's and family issues.

Congressman Thompson is a legislative leader supporting and recognizing the challenges of balancing family and work, in addition to supporting legislation to reduce government-created hardships.

  • He has a record of supporting legislation that provides for safety, including the Violence Against Women Act, and strengthening our local police forces.
  • As a senior member on the Natural Resources Committee, he knows the gas price at the pump is a strain on the budget, and leads efforts for affordable domestic energy.
  • As a former healthcare professional, he knows the important role women in the family serve in making healthcare decisions, and works to make healthcare affordable and accessible.
“Congressman Thompson always works hard for Pennsylvania families like yours and works every day to improve the economy and to create jobs,” said Jackie Syktich, President of DuBois Business College.  “Congressman Thompson leads the efforts to make education affordable and accessible, so that individuals have opportunity and therefore families benefit.”

“Congressman GT Thompson is a leader on jobs and job training. His legislative leadership expands access to the job training and education needed to secure greater opportunity.

Three Pennsylvanians being monitored for Ebola are from the northwestern part of the state, but not from Erie County, according to county health officials.

The people being monitored were passengers on a flight Monday from Cleveland to Dallas that included a Dallas nurse later diagnosed with the deadly viral disease.

"I was notified by the (Pennsylvania Department of Health's Bureau of) Community Health Systems that they were from northwestern Pennsylvania," said Melissa Lyon, director of the Erie County Department of Health. "If they would have been from Erie County, they would have informed me of that."

State health officials did not disclose the three passengers' hometowns during a news conference this morning in Pittsburgh.

Raising Awareness of Down Syndrome and Domestic Violence


Most everyone recognizes October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but did you know October is also designated to raise awareness of Down syndrome and domestic violence?

Earlier this week, the state House gave unanimous approval to House Resolution 1078, which I sponsored, declaring October as Down Syndrome Awareness Month in Pennsylvania. Also this year, the General Assembly passed Act 130 of 2014 that requires health care practitioners to provide educational information to parents who receive a test result that is positive for Down syndrome. Click here to learn more.

Last week, we passed House Resolution 1035, which I co-sponsored, to designate October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month in Pennsylvania. The PA Coalition Against Domestic Violence held its annual Capitol ceremony to remember those who died as a result of domestic violence within the past year. This ceremony is part of the coalition’s campaign, “PA Says No More,” which highlights ways to stop and prevent domestic violence. For more information on domestic violence prevention, click here.

Thanks for Coming!

Thank you to all of the senior citizens, caregivers and vendors who came out to this year’s Senior Citizens Expo in Roulette. I’ll be in Kane today (Friday) for another Senior Expo, this time with Rep. Kathy Rapp. We will be at the Kane Community Center, 46 Fraley St., from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Stop by!

 

Stopping Predators in Schools


 
In a significant step to protect Pennsylvania students, the General Assembly approved legislation to prevent school employees accused of child abuse from quietly resigning and then acquiring employment at another school district in the state. This practice is often known as “passing the trash.”

Under House Bill 1816, anyone who applies to work directly in or around schools must provide detailed background information from all previous employers, including contact information, in order to be considered for employment. In turn, previous employers must provide the inquiring school entity with all requested background information regarding a former employee, explicitly pertaining to abuse allegations.

Further, the bill would require explicit disclosure from the applicant during the initial application process. The applicant is now required to indicate whether or not they have ever been disciplined, discharged, non-renewed, asked to resign from employment or separated from employment while allegations of such abuse or sexual misconduct were pending or under investigation.

The bill would apply to all public schools, private schools, nonpublic schools, intermediate units and area vocational-technical schools in the Commonwealth. It awaits the governor’s signature to become law.

Preventing Prescription Drug Abuse

In an effort to combat the growing opioid abuse problem throughout Pennsylvania, the state House passed legislation this week to create a statewide database of certain types of prescription medication records.

The database would be maintained by the Pennsylvania Department of Health and would collect Pennsylvanians’ prescription medication records only if the substances fall on Schedules II-V of the federal Controlled Substances Act. Examples of medications that fall into this schedule are OxyContin, Tylenol with codeine and Valium.

Medical practitioners, pharmacists and law enforcement would have access to this confidential database, while those patients with prescriptions would be able to obtain their records at no charge once a year. Law enforcement would only be able to access the database through the state Office of Attorney General if relevant to an active investigation.

The database would also alert practitioners to patients who may be “doctor or pharmacy shopping” to feed an addiction. The bill awaits the governor’s signature to become law.

Amended legislation to allow Wildlife Conservation Officers to use body cameras sent back to House

GAME COMMISSION THANKS SENATE FOR SUPPORT ON SAFETY MEASURE

Amended legislation to allow Wildlife Conservation Officers to use body cameras sent back to House.

Pennsylvania Game Commission Executive Director R. Matthew Hough today thanked state senators for their unanimous support on an initiative to improve safety for Wildlife Conservation Officers.

The Senate on Wednesday voted 48-0 in favor of House Bill 2178, which would allow Wildlife Conservation Officers working for the Game Commission and Waterways Conservation Officers working for the state Fish and Boat Commission to wear body cameras in performance of their official duties.

Because the bill was amended, it now heads back to the state House of Representatives for approval. The House approved the original bill by a vote of 191-5.

While Wednesday was the final day of the House’s session, representatives have added an extra day to the session in order to approve bills requiring a final vote. They are scheduled to meet Monday.

Hough applauded the support the state’s legislators have demonstrated.

“With Wednesday’s vote by the Senate, both branches of the General Assembly have shown overwhelming support for this initiative, which will make the jobs of Wildlife Conservation Officers safer,” Hough said. “I thank them for their consideration and the votes they so thoughtfully cast, as the legislation takes yet another step toward final approval.”

House Bill 2178 was sponsored by state Rep. Dan Moul, R-Adams County, whose legislative district includes the area of Adams County where Wildlife Conservation Officer David L. Grove was shot and killed by a poacher in 2010. Moul said he sponsored the legislation as a way to increase officer safety.

The use of body cameras already has been expressly approved by the state Legislature for other police agencies statewide. The devices, which can be clipped onto an officer’s uniform, are similar to the dashboard cameras installed in most law-enforcement vehicles. The mobile cameras are considered especially suitable for Wildlife Conservation Officers, who often patrol while on foot.

The mere presence of cameras can quickly defuse what might otherwise become hostile situations, and cameras often capture valuable evidence that increases the chances of successful prosecutions.

The Game Commission in 2012 purchased body cameras for its officers, and officers used them briefly in the field before the law was changed to provide that only state and municipal police officers could use body cameras.

The agency would be ready to equip its officers with cameras as soon as the approval process is complete.

Potter County group gets financial boost to help cancer patients

Potter County group gets financial boost to help cancer patients

By ALEX DAVIS Era Reporter a.davis@bradfordera.com
Bradford Era

A little help goes a long way — especially for cancer patients struggling to pay for transportation to treatments and to put food on the table for their families.

For about two years, the Potter County Volunteers That Care nonprofit organization has been lending financial assistance in the form of gas cards. The group has given away about 150 gas cards to people living in Potter County and those receiving cancer treatment there.

Now the organization will be able to distribute dozens more $100 gas cards following a big shot in the arm on Monday. The organization received $3,024, which came from the Coudersport Alumni organization and the Coudersport Area Lions Club and proceeds from the Mike Hemphill Softball Tournament.

“Our word is getting out. I think people have been very generous with the way the economy is,” said co-chairwoman Kathy Kinard, who is a breast cancer survivor. Read more...
