I did Harry’s funeral today, he was 98. Harry was the kind of person we’d all like to know. His infectious smile could draw you as if you’d been friends for life. Part of what made Harry special was that he loved people. Family was at the center of his life and it didn’t take much before you knew that he included everyone into his family, blood relatives or not.
He was a man with goals and dreams. One of those goals was to live to be 100 and he almost made it. Every day that he lived, he lived with purpose. If you stopped by his home to visit you’d find him tinkering with something. When his wife was alive you never left without having a cup of coffee and a piece of pie. It wasn’t unusual for him to ask for prayer, not for himself, but for someone else. Sometimes when he asked I could see the tears well up in his eyes. He had compassion and empathy for others.
Today as my eyes looked up from the podium I realized that every room in the funeral home was open and people were everywhere, some were even standing. The American Legion was also present with over twenty to salute his farewell. I know that not everyone there were family but I’m sure they considered themselves part of the family. Harry had a way of including everyone. Perhaps because he embodied the command, love your neighbor as yourself.
When Jesus celebrated the last supper he talked to his disciples about his life being broken and poured out as an offering and then he said, “Do this in remembrance of me”. I have wondered if what he was saying to those disciples and to us today was to live our lives as a broken and poured out offering for others. Live as he lived, love as he loved, and lead others to the Father just as he did. Harry lived his life that way, for others.
As I reflect upon today and Harry’s life I wonder what others might say or write about my life. What would they say or write about yours? What’s the legacy we are leaving behind? Think about it.

Beverly E. Angello
Beverly E. Angello, 94, of Westline, PA passed away, Saturday March 18, 2017, at her son’s home in Westline, surrounded by her loving family.
Born on August 2, 1922 in Frankfort, IN, she was a daughter of the late Clovis and Leota (Pickard) Malicoat.
She was a 1940 graduate of Frankfort High School. She moved to Indianapolis following high school and attended beauty school, against her wishes, but which probably accounted for her impeccable taste. While earning her beautician certificate, she also was a secretary at P. R. Mallory.
In 1942 she met a dashing young serviceman, George A. Angello, Sr., at a USO dance. He swept her off her feet and she entranced him. They were married May 14, 1943, in Indianapolis.
George was honorably discharged from the service shortly after their marriage and they traveled by train to his home town, Bradford, where they spent most of their 44 years of married life.
Beverly successfully juggled being a wife, homemaker, and mom to three lively boys, and a working woman as a secretary to a Pennzoil bulk oil distributor. She managed these roles “alone” when Dad was commuting to his job in Hornell, N.Y. After the boys left home, George and Beverly moved to Hornell where he taught high school business and she worked as secretary at Partridge Insurance.\They retired to Sarasota, FL in 1982. Whether in Bradford, Hornell or Sarasota, they always made many good friends with whom they often enjoyed socializing and dancing.
Beverly lived independently in Sarasota until about three years ago, when she moved back to the Bradford area to reside with her youngest son, Michael, and his wife, Mary, in Westline.
She set an example for how to be loving and yet demand that everyone in her family try to reach their potential. She was always there when needed. She was a strong, elegant woman and the Matriarch of her family. She will be greatly missed.
Surviving are three sons: John (Nancy) Angello, of Seattle WA, George (Carolyn) Angello Jr., of Sarasota, FL, and Michael (Mary) Angello of Westline, six grandchildren: Michele Angello (Marla Cobin), Michael (Dina) Angello Jr., Toni Marie (James) Wheeler, George (Sandy) Angello III, Jonathan (Rita) Angello, and Janine (Brian) Hottovy; 11 great-grandchildren: Marah, Kayla, Malia, Bianca, Hayden, Alec, Camaryn, Jamison, George IV, Micah, Silvia; one sister Sue (Dan) Hayes CA one brother-in-law Phillip Angello, of Sarasota FL, and many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, one brother, Billy Malicoat, and one sister, Jean Sharp.
Family will receive friends from 9:15am to 10:00am on Saturday April 8, 2017, in St. Bernard Church, at 10:00am a Mass of Christian Burial will be offered by Very Rev. Raymond Gramata, Pastor, as celebrant. Burial will be in St. Bernard Cemetery.
Funeral arrangements are under the direction of the Hollenbeck-Cahill Funeral Homes Inc.
Memorials if desired may be made to the Kinzua Valley Trail Association % 33 CCC Road, Westline PA 16740, or any hospice program of your choice.

Clearfield, PA – Construction for a Route 155 (Port Emporium Road) bridge, in McKean County, is scheduled to begin soon as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project.
The bridge spans Allegheny Portage Creek in Liberty Township, near the Potter County line. Replacement of this bridge will allow PennDOT to remove it from McKean County’s structurally deficient bridge list.
Construction is expected to begin during the week of April 3 and be complete in late August. During this time, an alternating traffic pattern will be controlled by temporary traffic signals.
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-61 and is one out of the 558 bridges being replaced under the Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. JV references the joint-venture partnership between Walsh/Granite, which is leading construction for the entire project.
The Rapid Bridge Replacement Project is a public-private partnership (P3) between PennDOT and Plenary Walsh Keystone Partners (PWKP), under which PWKP will finance, design, replace, and maintain the bridges for 25 years. The P3 approach will allow PennDOT to replace the bridges more quickly while achieving significant savings and minimizing impact on motorists.
To see the bridges included in the statewide initiative and to learn more about the Rapid Bridge Replacement Project and P3 in Pennsylvania, visit www.p3forpa.pa.gov. Additional information on the project, the team, and how to bid on the project can be found at www.parapidbridges.com.

Montoursville, PA – On Thursday, March 23, PennDOT opened bids for the third contract for the Central Susquehanna Valley Transportation (CSVT) Project.
Bids were opened for construction of the US 15 Interchange just south of Winfield in Monroe Township, Snyder County, and Union Township, Union County.
This contract includes 1.5 million cubic yards of earthwork, four bridges, approximately 0.75 miles of reconstruction of US 15, and a temporary bridge over US 15 to accommodate earthmoving operations. This work represents the remaining earthwork and bridges that are part of the northern section of CSVT.
The unofficial low bid of $37.2 million was submitted by New Enterprise Stone and Lime Company, Inc., of New Enterprise, PA.
It was one of five bids submitted by private companies in the competitive bidding process.
Work is expected to begin in May with completion in 2019.
PennDOT will review the bids and anticipates awarding a contract within a few weeks.
A paving contract is expected to be bid in 2020, and the northern section is expected to be completed in 2021.
The southern section of the CSVT, which connects with the south end of the northern section, proceeds to an existing interchange with US 11/15 just north of Selinsgrove, is in final design. PennDOT currently is performing public outreach and engineering and environmental studies to modify a portion of the proposed alignment of the southern section.

BRADFORD, Pa. – Tech giant Yahoo has donated 40 servers to the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford’s Computer Information Systems and Technology program to help students learn about cloud technology.
As pleased as he is with the gift itself, Don Lewicki, associate professor and director of the CIS&T program, is just as pleased that the Pitt-Bradford program was seen as worthy of the gift by Yahoo.
“There are only 50 or 60 schools in the country that have received these gifts, and most of them are much larger,” he said. “This shows we’re in it to play as a program. We’re very grateful to Yahoo for including us in this program. These servers are going to be a great learning tool for cloud technology.”
“Cloud technology” refers to storing and retrieving data and programs over the internet from large server farms instead of individual computers.
Many companies rent space in the cloud from companies such as Yahoo.
“We’ll be able to duplicate that kind of environment now,” Lewicki said. “Our students will get very good at setting up and managing clouds.” That’s something that will help students in the tech job market, where cloud computing is growing. According to the job search website Monster, the median salary for jobs in cloud computing is $124,300.
Senior CIS&T majors Chad Whippo of Johnsonburg and Zach McClure of Ligonier will be among the first to benefit. They’re working with 2016 graduate Tom Neilly, who is an operations engineer at the Yahoo data center in Lockport, N.Y. Neilly was instrumental in coordinating the donation.
McClure will take the lead in the servers’ set up, which will require a cooled room to keep it from overheating. With the unwrapped server standing nearby, McClure and Whippo discussed what else could be involved in the set-up: they may need to wire the servers together; they will need to test, configure and install software; and they will need to figure out a back-up power system.
Once installed, classes studying computer security will be able to test a greater variety of software platforms.
“With a server set-up like this, you can easily create test environments and different learning environments,” Lewicki said.
The servers will also give the program adequate power for student and faculty research and projects that require substantial computing power, such as breaking passwords or working on steganography – the practice of securing data by hiding it in more data.
Dr. Donald J. McGillen, Yahoo Academic Partnerships team lead, said, “Yahoo is pleased to donate a rack of servers retired from our data centers to the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford. Under our Y STAR (Servers to Academic Researchers) program, we have, to date, delivered over 6,000 servers to more than 50 institutions around the globe. These machines have significantly enhanced the research and educational capabilities of the institutions that have received them and have, in some instances, enabled increased collaboration between academic researchers and Yahoo scientists and engineers.”

Courses Set For May 24-25 & June 7-8 In Coudersport
Township and borough officials in Potter County will have an opportunity to receive training in community planning, subdivision and land development regulation, and related topics.
Potter County Commissioners Doug Morley, Susan Kefover and Paul Heimel have approved a plan to bring the courses to the Gunzburger Building in Coudersport.
They’ll be provided in two sessions, scheduled for May 24-25 and June 7-8.
Planning Director Will Hunt approached the commissioners after attending similar training himself and engaging with instructors from the Pa. State Assn. of Boroughs (PSAB). He suggested that township and borough officials could benefit from the instruction, but it would difficult for many of them to travel to a PSBA training site.
Cost to the county will be $1,650 for each of the two sessions. More information is available from the Potter County Planning Department at 274-8254.
