Cuba man sentenced in motorcycle accident that killed his wife

Cuba man sentenced in motorcycle accident that killed his wife

By Ruth Bogdan, Special to the Olean Times Herald

SMETHPORT, Pa. — “It just doesn’t take much for an accident to happen on a motorcycle. And it doesn’t take much of an accident for a horrible, horrible outcome.”

That was the message 51-year-old Cuba, N.Y., resident Raymond T. Maedl Jr. said he wants to impress upon people, he told the crowd in McKean County Court on Friday. Maedl appeared before President Judge John Pavlock to be sentenced for charges stemming from a motorcycle accident that killed his wife, Jeanie Maedl.

On April 27, Raymond Maedl was driving his Harley-Davidson motorcycle with his wife as the passenger on Westline Road in Lafayette Township. District Attorney Raymond Learn said the couple had just left the Leekfest in Westline.

According to the information to which he pleaded guilty, the motorcycle went out of control while approaching a righthand bend in the road, and it struck the guardrail. Jeanie Maedl was thrown from the motorcycle.

Authorities found he had a blood alcohol content of .095 percent; the legal limit is .08 percent.

Maedl pleaded guilty Sept. 25 to charges of involuntary manslaughter, driving under the influence of alcohol and summary charges.

Maedl will serve nine to 23 1/2 months in McKean County Jail and 29 1/2 months of probation. Pavlock added that Maedl may petition for release from jail after five months if he either is fulltime employed for five months or completes at least 420 hours of community service by that time.

He will have to undergo a drug and alcohol evaluation, too.

In his statement to Pavlock, Learn said, “These are tragic circumstances.” However, he added, “The facts are still true — that this woman is dead and it was her husband’s fault because he was drinking and driving.”

TubbsBridgeFamilySign
Members of Army Private Edwin F. Tubbs’ family gathered in front of Coudersport’s Chestnut Street Bridge for a dedication ceremony that included the unveiling of two roadside signs bearing the span’s new name. 

A project of the Potter County Commissioners and the Potter County Veterans Affairs Department that started more than a year ago culminated in Tuesday’s ceremony at the bridge and inside the adjacent Calvary Baptist Church social hall. 

Pvt. Tubbs was killed by small-arms enemy fire in January 1969 while serving in South Vietnam. Details of his battlefield heroism were shared during Tuesday’s program. 

Among those attending were State Senator Joe Scarnati and State Representative Martin Causer, who shepherded legislation through the Pa. General Assembly to rename the bridge. Pvt. Tubbs brother, Russell Tubbs (far right), and his sister, Laura Hemphill (fourth from right) were among family members attending. (Photo by Curt Weinhold)

Linda M. Kilbourn, 66, of Shinglehouse, PA

Linda M. Kilbourn
Linda M. Kilbourn, 66, of Shinglehouse, PA, passed away at home with her loving wife by her side on Friday, December 5, 2014 after a courageous battle with cancer.

Born July 18, 1948 in Potter County, Pa, she was a daughter of Leon and Martha Corwin Kilbourn. On July 13, 2014 she married Penelope J. Yunghans, who survives.

Linda was a graduate of Oswayo Valley High School, class of 1966, in Shinglehouse. 

She was first employed at the former Acme Electric in Allegany, NY and while working there was employed at the former Ried’s Food Barn, also in located in Allegany. She later worked at Ried’s Food Barn in Olean. She then moved with Acme Electric to the Cuba, NY location which later became Tracewell Electronics, working there until the closing of the business. Linda then was employed at the former Ethan Allen Plant in Eldred until its closing and while working there was employed at the former IGA in Shinglehouse. She lastly was employed at the Shinglehouse Shop N Save until ill health forced her retirement.

 Linda was well known for her cooking skills at the deli and as a caterer. She was a hard worker, putting in many extra hours just to be sure the job was done right. 

She had numerous jobs over the years, but more than that she made many friends at each job, maintaining them over the years. She was overwhelmed by the generosity of those friends who organized and attended benefits for her.

Linda was a member and volunteer at the Oswayo Valley Senior Center in Shinglehouse and a member of the Shinglehouse Volunteer Fire Department. 

Russell and Alice Frost were like “adoptive” parents to Linda in her teen and early adult years. This developed into a love of harness racing with Russell, for which she won many trophies, and a respect for hard work which she learned from Alice. She also enjoyed participating in the annual Allegany River Regatta where she also won many trophies. 

Surviving besides her wife are two stepsons, Steven E. (Erica) Yunghans of Fredonia, NY and Daniel W. (Jennifer) Yunghans of Cortland; four grandchildren; a brother, Ronald L. (Paula) Kilbourn of Rushford, NY; two sisters, Rosemary (Richard) Whiteman of Portville, NY and Judy (Robert) Rhodes of Gettysburg; and several nieces and nephews.

Linda was predeceased by her parents.

Friends are invited to call from 6 to 8 p.m. on Monday at the Virgil L. Howard Funeral Home, 118 South Union Street, Shinglehouse, Pa. A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, December 9, 2014 at the Bethel Lutheran Church, Brooklyn Street, Portville, NY, with the Rev. Ivy Gauvin, pastor, officiating. Burial will be in Maple Grove Cemetery, Shinglehouse.

Members of the Shinglehouse Volunteer Fire Department will assemble at the funeral home on Monday evening at 7:30 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Potter County Hospice, 269 Route 6 West, Coudersport, PA 16915.

The award was presented during Rural Health Week in Pennsylvania, Nov. 17-21. The week encompasses Nov. 20, which is National Rural Health Day, established in 2011 by the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health.

The Rural Health Program of the Year Award recognizes an exemplary health program that addresses an identified need in a rural community; uses unique, creative and innovative approaches; ensures access to the community it serves; includes statewide resources as part of the planning and evaluation process; and demonstrates a significant benefit to the target population. Lisa Davis, director of the Pennsylvania Office of Rural Health (PORH) and outreach associate professor of health policy and administration, presented the award to Jack Goga, chief executive officer of the Dickinson Center, Inc.

The nomination, submitted by Curt Proctor from the Behavioral Health Alliance of Rural Pennsylvania, recognized the Total HEALTH Program in its efforts to offer holistic treatment options to the residents of Elk, Cameron, and McKean counties to improve care coordination and better meet the health care needs of those communities. The program is a collaboration between Penn Highlands Elk, Dickinson Center, Inc., and an independent physician in Elk County, to provide primary and behavioral health care services to individuals with physical and psychological conditions. The organizations meet weekly to assess patient progress, ensuring they are up-to-date on all aspects of care so they can help patients achieve their goals and healthy outcomes.

PORH was established in 1991 to enhance the health status of rural Pennsylvanians and strengthen the delivery and quality of care in the communities in which they live. Each year, the organization presents awards to recognize rural health programs and individuals who have made substantial contributions to rural health in Pennsylvania.

In February 2015, the Financial Aid staff will offer two different FAFSA completion nights, one from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Feb. 12 at Warren County Career Center and one from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Feb. 19 in the Richard E. and Ruth McDowell Sport and Fitness Center computer lab.

Those sessions will enable families to complete the FAFSA online with aid from the staff. Those interested should bring their 2014 federal tax return, if complete, or their 2013 federal tax return if the 2014 return is not yet done. Families should also bring federal PIN numbers if they have them and investment statements for assets other than retirement accounts.

Think About It

Black Friday
by Pastor B.J. Knefley

For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.
Matthew 20:28

Everyone knows that the day after Thanksgiving is commonly called “Black Friday”. It is the day that many converge upon the malls and box stores in hopes of finding that bargain. Retailers see this day as one of the days that put their sales for the year in the black. By using sales techniques they lure their unsuspecting buyers into buying not only the bait that got them there at 4AM but other things that, although they didn’t know they needed, they bought anyway. In case you’re wondering, yes I’m out there with the rest of the crazy people, not because I’m looking for the bargain but because I’m the driver that drives my various family members from store to store. It’s become a tradition and I enjoy our time together. We reserve our bargain hunting to Friday as we see Thanksgiving as a time for families.

There’s another Friday that is probably more important that Black Friday and it’s one that Christians call Good Friday. It is a day that Christ gave himself as a ransom for many. We celebrate his birth at Christmas. We don’t call the day that Christ was crucified as being a black Friday because it is a day that represents hope and freedom. It, coupled with Christmas, represents the greatest gift of all, the gift of life. It was on that fateful day, Good Friday, that Christ gave his life as a ransom. Notice that the verse above doesn’t say that he gave his life for all but rather many. Why? Sadly not everyone sees a need to be ransomed, because they don’t see themselves as slaves. But the reality is, we are all slaves to something, the question is what. We may be looking for a bargain, but the real bargain has already been purchased and it’s a free gift just for our receiving. Think about it.

State Should Fund Rural Community College Now

As you may remember, this summer the General Assembly passed legislation to allow for the creation of a rural regional community college to serve our area. As part of the budget process, we appropriated $1.2 million in funding to help establish the college. Unfortunately, the administration and the Department of Education are interpreting the law in such a way that they believe the funds can’t be released until the college is actually established. Read my statement calling for the release of the funds here.

 

I stopped by the IU9 in Port Allegany this week to talk with teachers and staff about early education funding. I also took the opportunity to visit with the kids, who were very happy to show me what they could make with their toys!

Hopes high for reopening of Ski Denton — just not this season

Hopes high for reopening of Ski Denton — just not this season

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


Hopes are high for the reopening of Ski Denton in Potter County — just not this season.
On Thursday, state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Secretary Ellen Ferretti announced the state is preparing to bid out for a new ski operator and have a feasibility study conducted at Denton Hill State Park near Coudersport.



But state Rep. Martin Causer, R-Turtlepoint, had hoped for a different turn of events. The lawmaker said he wanted Ski Denton to be open this season, and even Coudersport residents stepped up and said they’d operate it. 


“Given that we now have had several individuals and businesses express an interest in operating the facility, we are required to provide the opportunity for parties to bid on the contract,” Ferretti said. Read more...

Hunter Shot In Potter County Thursday; Shooter Fled Scene In Pickup Truck After Altercation

Hunter Shot In Potter County Thursday; Shooter Fled Scene In Pickup Truck After Altercation

State Police at Coudersport have released information on a shooting incident earlier on Thursday.

The incident occurred between 10 and 11 AM in a wooded area of the state game lands in Pike Township, Potter County.

Jarrett Rapp, 28, of Marietta, PA, had been hunting and was attempting to exit a wooded area when an alleged altercation began as an unknown hunter (a white male estimated to be in his 40's, wearing a 1/2 face mask, an orange camouflage jacket, and green pants) fired a bullet which grazed Rapp's leg causing a minor injury. The unknown actor then approached and punched Rapp.

Rapp then struck the actor in the facial area with his rifle. The actor fled the scene in a pickup truck (light blue in color). State Police were assisted by the PA Game Commission and ask that anyone with information regarding this incident contact PSP Coudersport at 814-274-8690.

At 12:36 PM on Thursday, a BOLO was issued to all area police agencies for the truck with 2 white males estimated to be 40 to 50 in age who were last seen on Phoenix Run Road headed toward Route 6. One of the males may have facial injuries, possibly a broken nose. The truck may possibly have a VA or WVA license plate starting with the letter J.

In a check with State Police earlier tonight, they said that the suspect is not in custody.
