Police Reports From WFRM News

By Gerri Miller--WFRM
Bringing news to the
Northern Tier for 29 years.

Listen to WFRM News here

Troopers at Kane have charged 20 year old Cari Fero of Mt. Jewett with failing to stay on roadways laned for traffic following a one-vehicle crash early Saturday morning on Route 3005 in Hamlin Township. State police say Fero’s Pontiac Grand Prix went out of control on a left curve, spun around counterclockwise and rolled onto its roof before coming to rest along the west berm. Fero escaped injury.

State police here are probing an identity theft case victimizing a Harrison Valley man last week. Someone obtained credit card information belonging to Ronald Schiffler and used it to purchase almost $400 worth of items on the internet.

Authorities are also looking for two men who stole an ice machine from in front of the Gold Country Store last Thursday around 5:30 p.m. The 40 cubic foot cooler . owned by Annie’s Ice of Wellsville was slanted with a silver door and held 60 backs of ice. The men loaded the cooler onto a newer model white Ford F150 extended cab pick up with a six food bed, gray graphics on the side and New York plates. One suspect was described as being in his 40’s or 50’s and the other was in his 20’s. Both were Caucasian. The truck was last seen heading north on Route 449. Value of the stolen items is said to be about $1665.

Thieves took a full five gallon red plastic gasoline can from the property of Henry Cusumano, on the Cherry Ridge Road in West Branch Township sometime over the past three weeks. The can had been placed outside Cusumano’s garage. Anyone with information about any of those incidents is asked to call the local barracks at 274-8690.

State police at Kane are probing a burglary taking place sometime last week in the village of Clermont. Thieves forced their way into a shed owned by James Sample and stole a Husqavarna and Stihl Chainsaws, valued at $500 each and four five gallon gas cans, two of which were full. Anyone with information is asked to call the Kane Barracks at 778-5555.

Why am I troubled by the fact that "we" and the people who report the news consider it "newsworthy" to report the theft of a 5 gallon plastic gas can and similar items?

Why am I troubled when I get to hear every detail of a car crash, its speed, how many times it spun around, at what angle it crossed the road, what it bumped off of, how many times it bounced up and down, what fell off of it, where it came to rest, on and on and on........when it can be summerized in just a few well chosen words?

The minutia just seems to be holding us back in some way, in a way of considering what is really important in the County.

I mean do we really need to know this to further our goal of making Potter County a better place to live? I don't see how it benefits us.

I realize we have to report the news, but the smallness just gets to me. Just venting I guess.

It would be nice to hear a week long or a few days feature on say, Walter Baker and the Hotel Crittenden, the recent award he got, the hotel's history, contribution to the community, views of the future etc.

Something that moves us forward.

Amen to being more positive! Too much toxicity getting into our minds. By toxicity, I mean negativity. Reporting the good is as relevant as the bad, if not more so. Especially with the state our country is in.

Unfortunately, there is more to life than only "good news!"

I'm not sure if you read the title to this article, but is labeled "Police Reports"

Did you happen to read the articles about The Inn on Maple Street, The Clark Brothers band, Route 15 finally opening up as 4 lane? Did you miss the great big picture of the rainbow at the top?

I personally would rather hear about someone's gas can being stolen than someone being knifed at the ATM or something like that.

Welcome to Potter County, PA...

Sorry if I was not clear, My comments pertained to the news put forth by WFRM, not Solomons Blog. Solomons is mainly a clearing house of news written by others.

The comment was more about what is news worthy and what is not, rather than good news vs bad news. Akthough Tina has a good point.

We all know there is more to life than good news, anyone knows this.

I realize the section was "Police Report" but is it really newsworthy?

Taking someone 5 gallon gas can?

We couldn't find another story to fill the airwaves and bandwidth with?

Is it newsworthy to report all of the gyrations of a car in a car accident?

When a few well placed words can suffice.

And yes, I suppose in some basic kinda way is is better than reading about a stabbing at an ATM, but can't we move beyond wanting to hear about the theft of the little red gas can?

If you don't want to hear about the theft of the gas can...do you want to know about the massive fire the gas in that can was used for to level an entire block?

Seriously. If you don't have something decent to say, stop. It's news. Those in radio and newspaper get paid to report it, small or large. Step in thier shoes and see how the bashing feels!
