Day 150, Living life on my terms.
I just spent the last hour looking over all of my writings in the “Living life on my terms” project and I am amazed at what it has become.
What started out as a way to help myself focus on improving my own health and awareness has become a historical and inspirational focus on the people, places, and happenings around all of us. I enjoy celebrating the people and events that have shaped us as well as trying to offer advice and hope for people who need it. When I look around and see people hurting it makes me realize how lucky I am to have the gift of words and an outlet to reach so many.
Now I am here at day 150; that is 150 days of progress and moving forward with my life. I have to chuckle when I look at my first few writings compared to what I am doing now. The quality of my writing has, in my humble opinion, greatly improved. I enjoy recognizing and honoring the everyday things and the common man (or woman).
The letters, cards, phone calls, and messages I receive continue to inspire me and refresh my spirit. Honestly, I feel insignificant when compared to most of my subject matters, so when I receive the positive feedback it is truly appreciated.
I think the greatest outcome is when people read my stories and then take action to appreciate and sometimes reconnect with others in their own lives. I have heard from many who have received “thinking of you” style cards and letters. That simple act of kindness meant so much to them and brightened their day.
Maybe I focus too much on the past, but I feel that it is important to understand and pay homage to the past because that is what makes us who we are today. Of course, deep down I really hope that much of what is gone could reincarnate to the present. It may seem to be cliché, but you really don’t know what you’ve got until it is gone.
On day one, I recognized the staff at Charles Cole Memorial Hospital for everything they did to finally get my lungs clear and functioning better. Since that stay, I have continued to improve and manage to stay away from being an inpatient. Nothing I have done would have been possible without them.
The first person that I honored was my best friend growing up, Tony Mack. Every time I hear the Loverboy song “Turn Me Loose” I picture cruising around in his van. I think his memory will always inspire me.
I have dedicated many days to my mother and father. They did their best to raise a family through difficult times; often forgoing their own needs and wants in order to provide for us. I could actually justify dedicating every day to them.
I have been influenced by many different teachers over the years and I have been able to write about many of them. Luckily, there are many more stories waiting to be recorded and shared.
Some of my stories have allowed me to introduce friends from throughout my life to people with whom they might not ever meet otherwise. It is a pleasure for me to be able to write about them so everyone can get an appreciation of just how wonderful they are.
Then there is community. The idea of community encapsulates so much more than just an area. It is the people, businesses, and events of our everyday lives that enrich each of us. Personally, I am nothing without my community of Coudersport and Potter County. I am proud to be a mountain boy who played in the creek, baled hay in the fields, sat outside at night listening to the peepers and looked at the stars while dreaming about what could be.
Today I dedicate my progress to 150 days of people and memories, as well as the multitude that are waiting to be written in future days. I want to thank everyone for all of the support given to me throughout this quest. As I said on day one; “I just ask you to continue to pray and walk beside me!”

- Approved the purchase of an easement of approximately 1,050 linear feet along Conneaut Creek in Spring Township, Crawford County, for $20,000. The easement area is located off of Fisher Road.
- Approved the purchase of an easement of approximately 250 linear feet along Elk Creek in Fairview Township, Erie County, for $3,750. The easement area is located off of Luther Road across the stream from Folly’s End Campground.
- Authorized a $154,903 grant from the Erie Access Improvement Program to McKean Township, Erie County, and the Lake Erie Region Conservancy to make improvements to their adjoining properties along Elk Creek in McKean and Fairview townships. These properties total approximately 88 acres and are located off of West and Peffer roads near the PFBC’s Sterrettania access on Elk Creek. The grant is part of a multi-phase plan to create a year-round recreation area for local residents and visitors. The township plans to contribute $25,000 to the project and has requested additional funding from the PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and the Erie County Greenways Program.
- Adopted a regulatory amendment which places catch and release regulations on Glade Run Lake in Butler County for all fish except trout. The PFBC will begin reestablishing warm and coolwater fisheries in 2017 by stocking forage fish and gamefish. This process will continue for several years. Adult catchable trout will be stocked beginning in spring of 2017.
- Approved a final rulemaking order which opens Harvey’s Lake in Luzerne County to year-round fishing but prohibits harvesting trout from March 1 to the opening day of trout season. Under the current regulations, the 658-acre lake is closed to all fishing for a two-week period from April 1 to the opening day of trout season. Trout harvest is permitted at all other times of the year. A number of area residents have asked to open the lake to year-round fishing, as it supports excellent fisheries for Black Bass, Walleye, Yellow Perch, Rock Bass and Bluegill. The change will take effect upon publication in the Pennsylvania Bulletin.
- Added 99 waters to the list of wild trout streams, revised the section limits of seven waters, and removed one water. The list can be found on the PFBC website.
- Added 26 stream sections to the list of Class A wild trout streams. The list can be found on the PFBC website.
- Approved a proposal to continue stocking Section 4 of Bald Eagle Creek in Centre County, which is classified as a Class A wild trout stream. The 5.72-mile section begins in the Borough of Milesburg and extends to the inlet of Foster Joseph Sayers Lake and is extremely popular during the traditional spring stocked trout season. It also receives a significant volume of cold water from Spring Creek and therefore supports a robust wild Brown Trout population and year-round fishing opportunities for wild Brown Trout and stocked fingerlings and adult stocked Rainbow Trout.
- Approved a grant of up to $115,000 to the Doc Fritchey Chapter of Trout Unlimited for a habitat restoration project on Snitz Creek, Lebanon County. The stream suffers from bank erosion and heavy sedimentation with limited instream habitat for fish. The project will include stabilizing streambanks to reduce erosion, installing instream habitat structures to provide cover and resting areas for trout, removing invasive plant species, and installing fencing and a cattle crossing to control livestock movement in the stream.

DEP Affirms Sampling and ANALYSIS Plan WATER TANKER STATIONED BEHIND KANE FIRE HALL FLUSHING CONTINUES NO PRESENCE OF INDUSTRIAL CONTAMINANTS
Pennsylvania American Water is committed to providing quality, reliable water service to customers takes this situation very seriously. All of the current activities are focused on verifying that this is a temporary condition and replenishing the system with odor free drinking water.
The company’s ongoing sampling results confirm that the drinking water is well within the compliance regulations set by the EPA and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP).
“The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has been working with Pennsylvania American Water throughout this situation and has found no signs of contaminants,” said Northwest Pa DEP Operations Section Chief Matt Postlewaite. “The Department is satisfied that Pennsylvania American Water is taking the appropriate sampling and analysis steps to ensure the safety of Kane’s drinking water.”
While our sampling results have confirmed that the condition does not constitute a health threat, a water tanker is located behind the Kane Fire Hall at 50 Poplar Street to ease inconvenience. The tanker is available from 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. until further notice. Containers are now available at the tanker.
Crews are continuing to flush parts of the distribution system today and at the plant to help resolve the situation as quickly as possible. If customers experience cloudy or discolored water, run water until it clears before using. This should typically take only a few minutes.
Pennsylvania American Water is conducting additional testing through its parent company (American Water)’s nationally renowned, EPA-accredited, laboratory in Belleville, Illinois, on the source and treated water.
Samples were collected from the company’s two reservoirs supporting the water Treatment and sent to Bellville yesterday. These reservoirs have been deluged with runoff during the last several storms.
Pennsylvania American Water reported on Friday, January 27, 2017, that the results from samples collected from its Kane Water Treatment Plant on Wednesday, January 25, 2017, confirm no detection of any potential contaminants.
The results confirmed that the current water condition is not a result of industrial pollution, pesticides, or the gasoline leak that occurred at the Kwik Fill on Fraley Street this past December. Results also indicate that this event is a result of a still unknown naturally occurring event, which may have been caused by the unseasonal warm weather and recent heavy rains.
Pennsylvania American Water will be issuing additional updates as needed through our website, community leaders and the media. We thank our customers for their patience as we work to identify the cause of this temporary condition and restore the quality of their water.

State mandates and operating standards are increasing and it is only because our jail is "grandfathered" that we do not have to incur considerably more expense. (A separate argument is whether we should be doing more because it's inherently the right thing to do, whether state-mandated or not).
After exhaustive research and pro/con assessments, as well as candid discussions with many who would be affected and many other measures taken to analyze this matter, as one member of a three-member Board of Commissioners I have concluded that we should decline McKean County's offer and continue to operate our own jail.
An economic case could still be made to close it, but the savings would not be as significant as some people have suggested and there would be other "costs" to pay, including compromises in public safety.
The economic argument may be more compelling if we are able to reduce the number of defendants who must be incarcerated, which is something Judges Minor and Leete as well as DA Watson and many other dedicated public officials have been working on for more than two years.
A very disturbing increase in opiod addiction (including heroin) and its ripple effect on related crime has frustrated this mission to reduce the inmate count. Other factors have also come into play that continue to challenge our team.
Our court system is doing a great job of adapting to changing times and the statewide and national recognition -- Potter County has been a successful pilot model for other rural jurisdictions -- is well-deserved. The overwhelming majority of those successfully completing the DUI Court, Drug Court and Women's Recovery Center programs are doing very well as "productive members of society" (or whatever the buzzwords are these days.) There is also great hope for success of the newest program, a Pre-Trial Diversion initiative that's just now being launched.
I will stop here, but would be eager to share details with anyone who is interested in learning more. I just wanted to put the rumors and concerns to rest from my own perspective as one of three elected officials who have the ultimate say in the future of our county jail. Thank you.

1/27/17 KANE WATER QUALITY
WATER TANKER STATIONED AT KANE FIRE HALL
SAMPLING RESULTS CONFIRM NO PRESENCE OF INDUSTRIAL CONTAMINANTS
Pennsylvania American Water has a water tanker at the Kane Fire Hall located at 50 Poplar St, in Kane Borough. We encourage customers to bring their own containers.
Water will be available at the fire hall this evening from 7 – 10 p.m. Starting tomorrow, the tanker will be available daily from 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. until further notice.
Pennsylvania American Water reported earlier today that the results from samples collected from its Kane Water Treatment Plant on Wednesday, January 25, 2017, confirm no detection of any potential contaminants. The company also said test results continue to remain well within water quality compliance standards regulated by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP).
The results also confirm that the condition does not constitute a health threat. Pennsylvania American Water conducted additional testing through its parent company (American Water)’s nationally renowned, EPA-accredited, laboratory in Belleville, Illinois, on the source and treated water.
Water quality experts sampled for potential drinking water contaminants, including metals and volatile organic compounds. The results confirmed that the current water condition is not a result of industrial pollution, pesticides, or the gasoline leak that occurred at the Kwik Fill on Fraley Street this past December.
Results also indicate that this event is a result of a still unknown naturally occurring event, which may have been caused by the unseasonal warm weather and recent heavy rains.
Pennsylvania American Water is committed to providing quality, reliable water service to customers and takes this situation very seriously. The company will continue to monitor the situation and conduct ongoing sampling through our Belleville Laboratory, which will be focused on the two reservoirs supporting the water treatment.

Trends Show Impacts Are Getting Worse
by Melissa A. Troutman, Sierra Shamer and Joshua B. Pribanic for Public Herald
After a three-year investigation in Pennsylvania, Public Herald has uncovered evidence of widespread and systemic impacts related to “fracking,” a controversial oil and gas technology.
Ending over a decade of suppression by the state, this evidence is now available to the public for the first time.
In Pennsylvania, the power over fracking rests in the hands of the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). When residents observe a problem, they call the Department to report it. That call gets recorded as a “complaint” as required by Chapter 58 § 3218 of the state’s oil and gas act. Read more...
In 2011, Public Herald’s first file request to DEP for complaints never produced a single document, and we learned that complaints were being held as ‘confidential.’ When asked why, an attorney from DEP’s Southwest Regional Office explained that Deputy Secretary Scott Perry didn’t want complaints to ‘cause alarm.’”
After pushing through DEP’s resistance to disclose these records, our team was able to conduct its first file review for complaints in the spring of 2013. Three years later, after more than 50 file reviews, Public Herald has scanned records for 6,819 complaint cases.
Today, due to this work, anyone can access these cases via the Pennsylvania Oil & Gas Complaint Map. See map...
When a person’s water becomes contaminated, the issue isn’t whether impacts from fracking are “widespread” or “systemic.” The issue is far more tangible – you’ve lost your water. Read the whole article....
