PennDOT Warns Motorists of Slick Conditions on Roads in the Region

Travel Advisory  01/03/2015
PennDOT Warns Motorists of Slick Conditions on Roads in the Region

Motorists in north central counties are advised that icy conditions on roads in the region may exist through today. Travelers should drive with caution.

PennDOT pre-treated roads yesterday in advance of today’s forecast, which calls for widespread mixed precipitation, including snow, sleet and freezing rain.

Anti-icing, as it is called, involves wetting the highway with salt brine before a storm’s arrival. The solution lowers the freezing point of water and slows or prevents ice from forming a bond with the pavement during the early stages of a storm.

PennDOT notes that the treatment isn't a silver bullet, and drivers still could encounter slick spots on the roadway; rather it gives our crews an edge at the start of a storm.PennDOT road crews were activated early this morning in anticipation of the storm.

PennDOT reminds motorists to slow down and drive according to the conditions they encounter when winter storms hit.

Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles, including color-coded winter conditions on 2,000 miles, by visiting www.511PA.com. 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 700 traffic cameras.

511PA is also available through a smartphone application for iPhone and Android devices, by calling 5-1-1, or by following regional Twitter alerts accessible on the 511PA website.

COMMUNITY FOUNDATION FOR THE TWIN TIERS ANNOUNCES NEW FUND

COMMUNITY FOUNDATION FOR THE TWIN TIERS ANNOUNCES NEW FUND

The Board of Directors of the Community Foundation for the Twin Tiers (CFTT) announces the newly established E.O. Austin Home / Historical Society Fund. Non-profit organizations often establish agency endowment fund with CFTT to provide a steady source of operating income.

Non-profits cannot exist without operating money to pay for things such as utility bills, yet operating money is the hardest to raise. For that reason, an endowment fund that supports agency expenses ensures the agency’s ability to provide the vital services needed in the community. Establishing a endowed fund that will grow over time creates long-term sustainability for all kinds of community needs; something a one time donation cannot accomplish. We look forward to watching this fund grow and provide the support needed to ensure history is preserved and available to enlighten and impact future generations.

Anyone looking to help grow the fund can donate by sending a check to CFTT with the agency name in the memo line of your check to CFTT 104 W. Lockhart St. Sayre, PA 18840. Or you can donate on our website at http://www.twintierscf.org/ by clicking “donate now” and picking E.O. Austin Home / Historical Society from the drop down box of funds.

To find out more about this fund or establishing a fund you can contact CFTT at 570-888-4759 or cftt@stny.rr.com .

Ethel L. Haynes, 85, of State College, PA, formerly of Sizerville Rd., Emporium, PA

Ethel L. Haynes
Ethel L. Haynes, 85, of 1900 Cliffside Dr., Apt 206, State College, PA formerly of Sizerville Rd., Emporium, PA,  died at her residence on Thursday (January 1, 2015) morning.

She was born January 23, 1929 in Emporium, PA a daughter of the late Clarence and Orvetta "Betty" Gribble LaPolt. On November 8, 1947 in First Baptist Church Parsonage she married Harry L. Haynes, who survives.

As a young mother, she worked hard to successfully provide a nurturing and stable home for her family despite the challenges presented by her role as the wife of a man with a military career. She successfully battled cancer when her daughters were on the threshold of elementary school, survived to welcome her grandchildren into this world, and recently learned of the impending birth of her first great grandchild. She was active in the Girl Scouts of American for many years with her daughters and husband, Harry.

After numerous relocations throughout the United States and Europe over 20 years, she and Harry settled their family in her home town of Emporium.

Mrs. Haynes was a member of the First Baptist Church in Emporium, the Portage Township Cemetery Association and the Odin Grange. 

She taught children's Sunday School for many years and served as a deaconess at the 1st Baptist Church. 

She loved gardening and flowers. Plants thrived under her care. She and Harry nurtured a massive garden each summer that produced enough for shelves of canned goods and freezers stocked with produce. Together, they produced enough fruits, vegetables, and berries to share with family and friends. She was especially known for her homemade spaghetti sauce and luscious pies. 

She adored hummingbirds and had a cloud of them buzzing around a bank of feeders that she suspended from her porch every summer. She enjoyed unnaturally good luck when playing board and card games with her family and friends. 

Throughout her life, she was an irreplaceable anchor and support for her loving husband
and family. 

Although her family grieves this parting, they find comfort in the knowledge that she merely precedes them into the presence of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

New Years Message From Andrew The Harpist



Andrew Wright Bennett, known as “Andrew the Harpist,” PO. Box 35, Dayton, MD 21036 http://www.andrewtheharpist.ws/ , awbpsalmist@yahoo.com, please check out videos under "Andrew the harpist" on youtube, *24/7 Cell# 202-573-6015


January 1, 2015

Dear Ones;

First off, Happy New Year's to all! "FORGETTING those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I PRESS TOWARD the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus (according to the context, to experientially, completely, know Jesus!)."- Phil 3:14,15

OK! Here goes! See http://youtu.be/g5GNs3XgxCI and meet "Michael Gabriel," the antique concert pedal harp given to me in upstate New York (then please forward this email to everyone you know). I've replaced most of the strings with fishingline and weedwacker chord, accept for the metal bass strings which have been replaced with newer strings. "Hepzibah," the hightop conversion van is up and running. When I travel, my head plucks the strings of my hammered dulcimer as I lay down, just missing the mandolin hanging on the wall, as I sleep betwixt my 6 ft pedal harp on the floor, and the 5 ft Paraguayan harp on the other side of the bed. I love this life!

I have CDs and other ministry materials to distribute as I travel. Whenever I can do so in a church, I appreciate having the whole service time, to speak (sometimes with Biblical costume and dramatic demonstration) and to sing for about 45 minutes (on the majesty of the Scriptures, revealing Jesus from Old Testament types and shadows, and our relationship with Jesus and His Soon Coming in the clouds promised by the Bible, also teaching on such practical matters as HOW to read the Bible and to have a powerful prayer life. BUT even when this can not be done, I still need a certain amount of time to take people away and into the The Presence of the Lord, singing with the harp primarily from the Scriptures, and also with songs I've composed and certain Christian songs and hymns selected for their powerful texts). 

The very most powerful thing I can do (which might require a special time beyond a church service) is to play the harp while others read the Scriptures and/or I sing the Scriptures with harp, piano, and other instruments. I call this a time of "Bible hearing." Lately, I've been singing portions of Scripture while playing the harp, then what I call "free psalming" (giving explanation of the text in song, and this will fit well into a church service), a very powerful ministry to all present. I'm finding that what church people need the most is to experience The Presence of the Lord among them with the Bible opened to them as a looking glass and Christ in the cross hairs. This is what I am about and what I can provide. The music acts like a barrier closing all present into the Lord's Presence and keeping everything else, out!

Lastly, I'm singing through the Bible now for the 9th time in my personal devotional life. I play 32 instruments, having built many of them, including the 5 ft Paraguayan harp I've built and will use in tandem with the concert harp, (I tune pianos too, and render Scripture in beautiful calligraphy.) Although I decided the best thing to call myself is "Andrew the Harpist," it is in a similar way that the prophet Amos was called a "picker of sycamore fig trees," and this is because who I am in Jesus goes way beyond the appearance of what it might seem to be. This is ministry, and I'm not to be called a "musician," being identified with the gift rather than the one to whom this giftedness points to, the Lord Jesus himself. I will need "prophet's quarters" at times as I travel, especially when I'm in a certain area for a season, so I can minister to churches and in homes in that area. I have a God given burden for the Washington DC area where I grew up. I find it one of the hardest places to minister while at the same time, the most spiritually needy!

Again, please forward this email to everyone you know. Thank you! As always, I so thank you all who have prayed for me and supported me with finances and with helps in the past. Please give as you feel led to this ministry. Checks can be made out to Andrew Bennett and sent to Andrew Bennett, PO Box 35, Dayton, MD 21036.

IN THE MIGHTY LOVE OF THE LORD JESUS, THE GENTLEST MASTER OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WAY OF SACRIFICE ; ANDREW WRIGHT BENNETT

Others like Sara McGee and Virginia Olds felt that, "We can expand our art knowledge, trips really help with this and it was a fun thing to do with my friends. Ciarra Mix was very excited about going to NYC, she shared, " sounds like a great time something to experience with my friends. it will give us exposure to what is out there and an opportunity we would not get any other way." 

Come out and support the kids on Tuesday evening for 4-6 and PACK the Cafeteria with "SOUP'S ON" and help the kids go to New York City in April.

Potter County Unveils Plans For Women’s Rehab Center In Harrison Valley

Potter County Unveils Plans For Women’s Rehab Center

addiction_rehabPotter County hopes to have a new Women’s Residential Rehabilitation Center open by February at the former Northern Tier Children’s Home in Harrison Valley. 

Many women who would otherwise be sent to jails in Lock Haven, Wellsboro or other towns will instead serve their time at the center, where they’ll receive a host of services designed to reduce the likelihood that they’ll be back in court. 

Jim Kockler, county director of human services, presented an update on the project at a recent Potter County Board of Commissioners meeting. He’s been spearheading the project for the commissioners and the local court system for more than a year. Kockler said the facility would house non-violent female inmates, many of whom are in need of substance abuse and/or mental health treatment, employability support, educational assistance and other services to get their lives in order. 

The county pays an average of $70 per day to rent jail cells in other counties, since the Potter County Jail is not equipped to house women. Cost savings from keeping those inmates in Potter County are expected to offset expenses at the new center.

Judge Stephen Minor and District Attorney Andy Watson will have to approve each offender who’s sentenced to the facility. Potter County Probation Department and Potter County Human Services will also be involved. The facility complements the county’s movement to establish “specialty courts” that provide special handling of criminal cases involving alcoholics and other drug addicts. The women will be housed in a residential setting, where families will able to visit and participate in structured counseling sessions with the detainee. 

A complementary effort is underway to improve re-entry services for men who are nearing their release at the Potter County Jail.

Northern Tier Children’s Home lost its primary tenant when Adelphoi Village suspended its juvenile detention services there several years ago. The facility’s management supports the county’s plan and a lease agreement is pending. 

A $300,000 grant from the Pa. Commission on Crime and Delinquency will subsidize expenses for the first two years of operation at the Women’s Residential Rehabilitation Center.

Expanded Cellphone Coverage Plan Moves Forward In Potter County

Expanded Cellphone Coverage Plan Moves Forward

celltower
Verizon Wireless continues to work on expanding its cellphone coverage in Potter County. 

Eventually upwards of 90 percent of the county will be covered for mobile phone service. 

Potter County Planning Commission approved plans for three more Verizon tower sites at its December meeting. The towers are targeted for one-acre lots in Austin Borough, Wharton Township and Hector Township. 

More than two dozen tower sites have been approved so far and several are under construction. Company officials still can’t say when the broadened service will be available. Generally, each site is a 200’ x 200’ plot upon which a lattice tower is built, as well as a small pre-cast concrete equipment shed. Each of the sites is being leased from private landowners. 

The towers are upwards of 200 feet tall. Steep terrain is a challenge for construction crews. Access roads have to be built and, at some of the sites, forested areas need to be cleared.
