HAMILTON-GIBSON CHILDREN AND YOUTH CHOIR SEASON KICKOFF IS AUG. 18:

WELLSBORO, PA—The Hamilton-Gibson Children and Youth Choirs will officially begin their 21st season on Tuesday, Aug. 18 at a special kick-off rehearsal at the Bogaczyk Farm in Cherry Flats, near Wellsboro.

“The program has grown from just 18 singers in grades 4-8 in 1996, to a full program for singers in grades 2-12 from all over Toga County,” said Thomas Putnam, choir director.

Registration for the choirs is open and all singers from grades 2-12 are encouraged to apply. Opportunities include: the Young Men’s Choir for boys in grades 9-12 or with changed voices; the Young Women’s Choir for girls in grades 9-12; the Children’s Concert Choir for children in grades 5-8; and Choir Too, the training choir for children in grades 2-4 or those who are still working on their singing voice.

Each choir meets once a week and performs an autumn concert, a holiday concert at the Dickens of a Christmas Weekend, and a spring concert. The choirs also perform as asked during the year.

Touring began early in H-G Choir history. Choir members have toured Washington D.C., New York City where they sang with the Newark Boys’ Choir, Toronto, Prague in the Czech Republic and Brazil.

On April 28, choir members completed H-G’s 67 Initiative to sing in all 67 counties in Pennsylvania. Highlights from the trips they took over the years include singing the National Anthem at a Phillies game in front of over 60,000 people; singing at the Flight 93 National Memorial near Shanksville, Pa; at Fallingwater, a home designed by architect Frank Lloyd Wright; and at 50 schools throughout the state.

The choirs have performed with the choral department at Mansfield University, the MU Symphony Orchestra and the Williamsport Youth Orchestra as well as a number of community-based choral programs throughout Pennsylvania.

On Sunday, Aug. 23, the choirs will sing the National Anthem at the Little League World Series in Williamsport. They began doing that in 2001.

The tuition cost for youth to participate in the H-G program is kept to a minimum with gifts from local citizens who are committed to offering a quality community choral experience for local students; and through parent-run fundraisers. Scholarships are also available for any child who desires to sing from families who are in difficult financial situations.

For more information about the Hamilton-Gibson Choir program for children and youth, call the H-G office at 570-724-2079.

Intelligent Transportation System Project Update

Montoursville – This is an update on the $4.2 million Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) project in Columbia, Lycoming, Montour, and Union counties in central Pennsylvania.

On Monday, Aug. 10, the contractor will continue work at the Route 15 southbound ramp to Interstate 180 eastbound in Williamsport.

Work includes trenching and backfill, and junction box installation.

Traffic will be reduced to a single lane. Short term delays in this area are expected.

Trench and backfill work also will be performed at Interstate 80 and Route 11, and on Route 11 in Berwick. Guide rail installation will be performed at various sites throughout the project area.

Traffic should not be impacted as this work will be done off the roadway and behind barrier.

Ramp Work Scheduled for Route 220 Job Drivers should be Alert for Traffic Pattern Changes

Lock Haven, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s Route 220 project is continuing and area drivers can expect traffic pattern changes and travel delays next week at two interchange locations.

During the week of August 10, crews will be paving the ramps at the McElhattan and Avis interchanges and drivers should be alert for traffic pattern changes as work takes place. Flaggers may be in the roadway and drivers should proceed with caution in these work zones. All work is weather dependent.

Project work includes patching and overlay, bridge repairs, guide rail updates, shoulder work, strip seal dams and miscellaneous items. Ramps at Salona, Mill Hall, Lock Haven, McElhattan, and Avis will also see improvements along with improvements on a small section of Route 477 (Long Run Road) near Salona and bridge work on Route 2015 (Mill Hall Road) near Mill Hall.

Begun in 2014, repairs will improve the ride quality of the roadway surface and extend the useful life of the pavement. The work was made possible by Act 89.

HRI, Inc. of State College is the contractor on this $16.9 million project, which is expected to be complete by mid-October. PennDOT reminds motorists to use caution in work zones, obey posted speed limits and always buckle up.

Stephanic found guilty of first-degree murder in girlfriend’s slaying

By COLIN DEPPEN Era Reporter c.deppen@bradfordera.comBradford Era

RIDGWAY — An Elk County jury believes a St. Marys man acted knowingly when he lured his girlfriend from her workplace and fatally shot her in the back, returning a first-degree murder conviction against him Thursday and rejecting the defense’s diminished capacity claims.

Sentencing of Michael Stephanic Jr., 46, has yet to be scheduled, but isn’t likely to take place before the completion of court-ordered evaluations due by mid-September. He faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison, with the death penalty not pursued in this case. Read more...

Summer IT Camps

The Potter County Education Council, in partnership with Seneca Highlands IU9 and Seneca Highlands Career & Technical Center (CTC,) recognized 28 students for participating in summer camps held at the CTC. The goal of these camps is to introduce area youth to a variety of career options related to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM.) A variety of IT career fields were explored through hands-on projects and discussions. 

Participants were able to take completed projects and other course materials home with them at the conclusion of the camp. This year’s topics included computer networking, robotics, programming, and game design.

The Education Council would also like to thank UGI, Northwest Savings Bank, and Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield for sponsoring these programs. They have each made a commitment to invest in the communities they serve through generous contributions to the Education Council through Pennsylvania’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program. Their contributions allowed us to offer these programs free of charge, which would not have been possible without their strong support.




CCENT Boot Camp Graduates 8

The Potter County Education Council, in partnership with Seneca Highlands IU9 and Seneca Highlands Career & Technical Center (CTC,) recognized 8 students for participating in the CCENT Boot Camp held at the CTC.

The Education Council would also like to thank the North Central JOBS! Program for its financial support. The CCENT Boot Camp was funded in part by the North Central JOBS! (PA JOBS1st) grant received by the North Central PREP and NCWIB from the PA Department of Labor and Industry. Their generous support allowed us to offer the camp free of charge.


Galeton Rotary Reports Another Successful Woodsmen's Show

The Galeton Rotary's 64th annual Woodsmen's Show is now past history. Once again it was another successful year.

The Rotary Club extends a "thank you" to those who helped make it such a success, especially Bill Campbell for hauling our storage trailer to Cherry Springs and bringing it back to Galeton, Patterson Lumber Company for the logs used at all of the events and transporting them to the site and last but not least to Ron Dean and E.F. Dean Inc. for transporting the pieces of heavy major equipment we needed to use at the show.

The annual Woodsmen's Show along with the Dark Skies program, also at Cherry Springs are the two most popular tourist events in Potter Co. Both of these events provides a substantial economic boost to the area.

Over the past 64 years the show has allowed Galeton Rotary to contribute over $700,000.to the community. Galeton Rotary provides annual scholarships to Galeton students, built the original school tennis courts and the outdoor basketball court, school sidewalks, band uniforms and fitness center equipment this year. The club refurbished the community building with a new roof, siding, interior remodeling and completely new electrical service. Major contributions to the new library, Collins Memorial Park and the band house restoration. These are just a few of the major contributions. The list goes on and on each year.

Pete Folk, a Rotarian of many years, was this years general chairman and, as usual did an outstanding job of making sure the show went on without a hitch.

The club will soon be making plans for the 65th show in 2016.

More Improvements Made To Potter County Website

Potter County Today

websitegraphicMore improvements have been made to the county website, aimed at making services more convenient for the public while improving efficiencies with the county government. 

The site now has a new look and a platform to allow faster navigation. 

New content has been added and updates will continue in the coming weeks. The site can be found at pottercountypa.net

Website developer Brad Zehr confirms that hit counts and other measures all point to growing use of the website for both interactive functions and information-seeking. Zehr said the Potter County website has been viewed by other county and local governments seeking a model to develop their own sites.

The site features conveniences for the public to purchase dog licenses, pay certain taxes, print forms, obtain phone numbers and email addresses for county and municipal officials, remotely access deeds and land records, obtain voter/election information, and more. There’s also current and archived information on the county government and Potter County in general, past and current editions of newsletters, information of interest to military veterans, and minutes from public meetings. 

Internet users are encouraged to bookmark the site on their home computers. The new site complements a separate web-based service for information from or about the county government, Potter County Today, available at today.pottercountypa.net

Together, the two information services deliver both timely information, updated on a daily basis, as well as connections to many other sources.

Potter County To Implement Veterans Discount Program

Potter County Today

Verteran%20Discount%20ProgramPotter County’s Veterans Services Committee is developing a new program that will allow qualifying military veterans to receive discounts on many local purchases.

Merchants and professional service providers will be invited to participate by extending discounts – typically 10 percent or more – to Potter County veterans. Vets who wish to take advantage of the program will obtain a Veterans Discount Program identification card from the county. Each card will be accompanied by a list of those participants who are offering discounts.
