Potter County Trailbusters Grass Drags Cancelled For This Season

Gregory Michael Weeks, 62, Dallas, TX, a Coudersport High School Graduate

In Memory of
Gregory M Weeks

January 7, 1954 - August 24, 2016

A big heart stopped beating when Big G died suddenly on August 24, 2016 in Dallas, TX where he had lived for over thirty years.

Gregory Michael Weeks, 62, was born an army brat in Baytown, TX on January 7, 1954, a son of Lt. Col. Carl A. and Ellen G. (Thielges) Weeks. 

Vietnam War Veteran

After moving many times, he graduated from high school in Coudersport PA and joined the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War. 

While serving in Germany an accident involving heavy road construction equipment permanently damaged his heart, and he was honorably discharged. His heart never the less valiantly carried him through a good life. 

He lived life cutting a wide swath, making friends and helping others wherever he went. Greg worked as a very dedicated letter carrier for the United States Postal Service for over 26 years at Preston Station in Dallas before taking early retirement in 2009. 

Big G found the love of his life, Margaret (McClung) Sinex in Dallas also. The romance that began in1997 was highlighted with their shared love of Renaissance fairs, travel adventures, family, and great music. His family and friends will always remember his Renaissance gear: green velvet spandex leggings, a big cloak, custom knee-high boots, and his vintage Samurai sword at his side. And who can forget the blue "Galactic Cruiser" van?

Greg had a devoted love for board games, especially the historically-themed, like Russian Campaign or War at Sea. Reading the whole paper and solving all the puzzles in it was another passion. Early on he was a die-hard Grateful Dead fan, following the band to various states for concerts.

Big G was a big personality! He was a storyteller, story maker, best friend, gamer, sailor, history enthusiast, Renaissance player. rocker, movie-lover, and hard-working mailman! He was loyal, generous, loving, loved, dynamic, dedicated to family, charitable, fun, loud, and proud.

Greg is survived by his wife, Margaret Sinex-Weeks, two step-daughters, Jacqueline Sinex of Austin, and Roxanne Sines of Dallas and 4 grandchildren; along with two brothers, Frank and Norman Weeks both of Roulette PA; two sisters, Barbara Hyde of Freedom PA and Diane Moolick of Dalton PA; nine nieces and nephews and numerous grand-nieces and grand-nephews.

Please join us for his memorial in Dallas on September 13, 2016 from 6-8p.m. at Sparkman-Crane Funeral Home, 10501 Garland Road, Dallas, TX 75218. 

A second memorial in Pennsylvania will be announced at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Catholic Charities of Dallas.
(ccdallas.org) or United Way Foundation.

Thompson Marks 15th Anniversary of September 11th Terrorist Attacks

Washington, DC – Congressman Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-05) today issued the following statement in commemoration of Sunday’s 15th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001:

“Although 15 years have passed since the terrible events of Sept. 11, 2001, we will never forget the heroism, bravery, and selfless actions of first responders to the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and the bravery of the passengers of United Fight 93. Each rises to the highest ideals of our nation and serves as a distinct reminder of our unwavering commitment to defeat those who prey upon the innocent, in order to make our country and this world a safer and more peaceful place.

“My family and I continue to solemnly offer our thoughts and prayers for all those who were impacted that day. We also continue to pray for the men and women who put their lives on the line each and every day making sure our country is safe.”

ROUTE 46 FROM EAST SMETHPORT TO COUNTY LINE TO CLOSE STARTING MONDAY FOR RECONSTRUCTION

Improvement Work Underway on Route 146 and Route 46

Section of Route 46 to Close on Monday

Port Allegheny, PA – A Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) roadway improvement project got underway in late August on Route 46 in McKean County, with work also taking place on Route 146 today through Saturday.

Tomorrow, work will feature drainage repairs on Route 46 near the intersection of Routes 46 and 146. This work zone will be controlled by automated flagging equipment. Through Saturday, base repair work is taking place on Route 146 from the Clermont area, south for about five miles. Traffic through this work zone will be controlled by roadway flaggers.

Starting Monday, Sept. 12, Route 46 will be closed from the McKean/Cameron county line to the Route 6 intersection near Smethport, as full depth reclamation work begins. 

The project will result in five miles of new roadway and an additional 15 miles of improved roadway surface.

Once this section of Route 46 is closed, a detour will be in place. PennDOT’s official detour will make use of Route 6, Route 120, and Route 155. The detour is expected to last through October and includes a Route 6 bridge about 2 ½ miles west of Port Allegany that opened on Aug. 23. Residents living along this section of Route 46 will be able to access their homes.

IA Construction Inc. is the contractor on this $3.13 million project that is expected to finish in late November.

PennDOT reminds motorists to follow detour signage, use cautious in work zones, obey posted speed limits, and always buckle up.

Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway 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 770 traffic cameras.

PennDOT Takes Next Steps to Strengthen Ridership at Middletown Train Station

Announces RFQ for P3 Developers


Harrisburg, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT), announced today it is starting a request for qualifications (RFQ) process to solicit a Public Private Partner to develop parking and retail around a revitalized Middletown train station.

In addition, PennDOT will host an industry forum on September 28 from 10 am to noon at the Sheraton Harrisburg-Hershey Hotel on Lindle Road to outline the P3 concept for the area around the station, which is on the Amtrak Keystone line.

“The Keystone Line offers an attractive travel option for more than one million riders a year and enhancing stations along the route can help attract even more riders,” PennDOT Secretary Leslie S. Richards said. “Renewed stations also help build strong surrounding communities and that is the goal of our P3 plans.”

PennDOT’s vision is that the P3 partner will develop, design, build, finance, operate and maintain parking facilities that provide a minimum of 400 parking spaces in an eight-acre tract near the newly relocated AMTRAK station as well as undertake possible commercial/retail development.

In addition, the partner will construct an Emaus Street extension as well as a pedestrian bridge over Route 230 to the Penn State-Harrisburg campus. The partner will be required to maintain the project site for at least 30 years.

Interested parties have 60 days to respond with a statement of qualifications.

The P3 development will complement the work PennDOT, AMTRAK and Norfolk-Southern are doing to build the new Middletown station. Site preparation under a $2.6 million contract is underway and is expected to be completed in May 2017. Norfolk-Southern is expected to start an estimated $6.5 million in track work later this year. AMTRAK’s track work, estimated to cost roughly $4.3 million, will start late next year. Work on the new station and platform, estimated to cost $24.4 million, is expected to start late in 2018.

“Our goal is to build transit ridership at the Middletown station and add an attractive transportation and commercial hub for the community,” Richards said. “This is part of our mission to build a better Pennsylvania and mobility for its citizens.”

Wolf Administration, State Treasurer Act to Ensure Prompt Payment of Mine Subsidence Insurance Claims

Harrisburg, PA – Pennsylvanians with property damage covered by mine subsidence insurance will have their claims paid without delay, thanks to a new directive signed recently by the heads of the departments of Environmental Protection and Insurance, and the Pennsylvania State Treasury.

Previously, because mine subsidence insurance claims are paid through a state fund that must undergo a review process, payment of claims, once approved, was sometimes delayed for up to 30 days. With the action taken recently by the DEP Secretary, Insurance Commissioner, and State Treasurer, these claims will now be paid immediately upon approval.

“Some 58,000 Pennsylvania property owners have mine subsidence insurance. When subsidence occurs, the damage can at times be so severe, people cannot live in their homes until repairs are made,” DEP Acting Secretary Patrick McDonnell said.

More than one million Pennsylvania homes sit above abandoned underground coal or clay mines in 43 of Pennsylvania’s 67 counties. Homes and other buildings on these or nearby properties can be damaged, sometimes severely, by the movement of the ground surface as a result of the collapse of an underground mine, or from a sudden breakout of water from an abandoned mine. To protect property owners, the state created the Mine Subsidence Insurance Fund in 1961, to provide low cost coverage.

“Mine subsidence insurance is vital for people to protect their homes against damage from ground movement due to an underground mine collapse or water release, and homeowners’ insurance typically does not cover this,” said Insurance Commissioner Teresa Miller. “It is vital we get these families the money they need quickly.”

“PA Treasury is pleased we were able to work with the administration to improve the process so that once these funds are approved we can promptly get the money to the claimants when they need it most,” said State Treasurer Timothy A. Reese.

The average cost for mine subsidence insurance is $85 per year. The average claim paid in 2015 was for approximately $20,000. Coverage of up to $500,000 is available.

Information on the mine subsidence insurance program is available at www.paMSI.org.

Think About It...

Money

by

Pastor B.J. Knefley

Does money interest you? If you were breathing then I would suppose that the answer to that question would be yes. Do you have enough? Do you want more? We all can guess at what the answers to those questions would be. But considering that we are among the richest people of the world, why is it that we never seem to have enough? In other words, why is it that although we are rich, we don’t feel rich? In fact many have never felt rich in their entire life. Why? The answer to that is a simple thing called “margin”.

Margin has to do with our debt to income ratio. It’s the difference between what I earn and what I save. If I put money away, as in a savings account, I start to accumulate a reserve. As the margin continues to grow between what I spend and what I save, I start to feel rich because what I have saved creates buying power. If I spend all that I earn, I will feel like I’m living paycheck to paycheck and that’s true for the person making $30,000 a year or the person earning $300,000 a year. So now the question is what percentage of your income do you need to live on?

In Mark 12:41- 44 Jesus calls his disciples together to observe with him the people who were putting money in the Tabernacle offering box. Some were placing large sums of money in when a lowly widow comes along and places two small coins. Jesus turned to his disciples and said, “I tell you the truth, this poor widow has given more than all the others who are making contributions. For they gave a tiny part of their surplus, but she, poor as she is, has given everything she had to live on.” (Mark 12:43-44). The point here is that when it comes to percentages, the widow gave it all while the rich only gave a small percentage of what they had. I wonder which felt rich, the rich that had the money but kept most of it for them self, or the widow who gave it all away? Quite simply, the widow’s hope was in God, that’s why she could give it all away. The rich, their hope had migrated from God to their money. What does that say about us? Think about it.
