Shinglehouse Native Helps Keep Marine Helicopters Safe

Story by Lance Cpl. Kris Daberkoe Small

OKINAWA, Japan - Between training exercises and deployments, the CH-46E Sea Knight helicopter is an asset used throughout the Marine Corps, said Maj. Cory Dekraai, an Ann Arbor, Mich., native and aircraft maintenance officer with Marine Medium Helicopter Squadron 265, Marine Aircraft Group 36, 1st Marine Aircraft Wing, III Marine Expeditionary Force.

When the CH-46E is not flying a mission, aviation maintenance Marines are inspecting and working on the aircraft to prepare it for its next flight.

“Even with the onset of the MV-22 Osprey tilt-rotor aircraft, the CH-46E is still the backbone of Marine Corps aviation,” said Dekraai.

CH-46E pilots and crew chiefs perform inspections of the aircraft before and after each flight.

“Part of keeping the aircraft safe and long lasting is consistent and routine maintenance,” said Dekraai.

“The preflight planning and inspections ensure the aircraft is not being [unnecessarily] strained and is in good working condition,” he said.

Weather conditions, distance to travel, cargo weight, passenger weight and engine power all combine to determine the CH-46E’s capabilities.

To ensure there are no delays in flight plans due to last-minute complications, the maintenance Marines also look for hazards around the aircraft. Each morning, the Marines search the flight line for any foreign objects that could be sucked into the engines.

“We all line up on the flight line and check for anything that isn’t supposed to be there,” said Cpl. Paul Rathbun, a Shinglehouse, Pa., native and crew chief with HMM-265. “If anything was to obstruct the exhaust, the engine would overheat and possibly warp.”

Obstruction of the exhaust pipe is not the only complication crew chiefs and pilots look for during their inspections.

“Inside the oil line are magnetic chips that attract iron buildup, and trigger a light on the dash board of the cockpit when those chips become full,” said Cpl. Phillip Dorion, Houston native and crew chief with the squadron.

Safety mechanisms such as this ensure that if one of the engines experiences trouble mid-flight, the second engine can take up the slack, he said.

“We have to be careful when we fly over salt water because of the corrosion it causes,” said Rathbun. “If we see any corrosion, we do a full fresh water wash down of the aircraft.”

Salt-water corrosion is another discrepancy both crew chiefs and pilots look for during inspections.

“It’s important to have [multiple pairs] of eyes on this aircraft,” said Sgt. James Ryan, a St. Louis native and crew chief with HMM-265. “Marines’ lives depend on the integrity of our inspections.”

7th Street Bridge Is History

The 7th Street bridge in Coudersport hangs from a 250 ton crane over the Allegheny River on Friday.

Crews from L. C. Whitford Co. have been preparing for the last week to have the bridge stabilized for Fridays move. L.C.Whitford Superintendant, Dick Fanton, said his crew did a fantastic job bracing, welding and rigging on the bridge and because of their professional team effort the bridge was lifted, set on dollies, and moved to C.A.R.P. Park without incident.

Fanton said work will continue on drainage on both sides of the channel and his crew will begin work on the new 7th Street bridge in the near future.

Coudersport Borough Manager Marlin Moore and several council members were on hand to watch the progress on the project that he began the paperwork on over 25 years ago

Penn Dot inspectors and Engineers watch as the 7th street bridge is moved to the east side of 7th street to be placed on dollies.

A welder welds legs on the bridge so it can slide like skis on the road and the rear will set on dollies to allow the bridge to turn. An excavator is hooked to the front to drag the bridge to C.A.R.P.

Two excavators were used to move the bridge to C.A.R.P.

Ice Fishing Seminar, Anglers' Legacy on Tap for Winter Quarterly Meeting

Ice Fishing Seminar, Anglers' Legacy
on Tap for Winter Quarterly Meeting

Harrisburg, PA – The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) has a host of public events scheduled during its winter quarterly meeting, set for Jan. 24-25 at the Harrisburg headquarters. In addition to the regular business meeting, the PFBC will host a lunch-time presentation on fishing trends in the U.S. and a special evening seminar on ice fishing, featuring three pro anglers from the North East Ice Tour. The evening session will also include several award presentations and a ceremonial signing of the Anglers’ Legacy pledge by commissioners.

The lunch presentation on Jan. 24 will feature Mark Duda, executive director of Responsive Management, a public opinion and attitude survey research firm specializing in natural resource and outdoor recreation issues. He will present findings from the company’s latest research projects. The public is invited to the presentation and is encouraged to bring a brown-bag lunch.

The Jan. 24 evening session begins at 7 p.m. and allows members of the public who cannot attend during normal business hours the opportunity to hear about current issues and to interact with commissioners, the executive director and agency staff. The session will begin with the presentation of the Stanley Long Outstanding Volunteer Service Award, which honors the Commission’s most exemplary and inspiring volunteer, and an award from the American Fisheries Society recognizing a Commission research project. By signing the Anglers’ Legacy pledge, commissioners agree to share their passion for fishing and the outdoors with at least one person each year.

"Ice Fishing: The Basics and Beyond" will feature pro anglers Bob Griffith, Mike Kuna and Byron Eckardt (pictured). They will discuss ice safety, apparel, equipment, and tips and tricks, and they will share their experiences as professional anglers. Griffith and Kuna topped the points race to be named Team of the Year in 2010 in the North East Ice Tour, a series of professional level tournaments held throughout the Northeast U.S. and operated by Eckardt.

Both the lunch and evening presentations are free and no registration is required. There is plenty of parking at the PFBC headquarters, located at 1601 Elmerton Avenue in Harrisburg.

For the quarterly meeting, committees will meet beginning at 10:15 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 24, and at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 25. Formal consideration of the agenda by the full Commission will begin at approximately 2:35 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 25. All committee meetings and the formal meeting are open to the public.

Commissioners will address a variety of issues during Tuesday’s formal meeting, including:

* A property exchange in Berks County and property acquisitions in Dauphin and Erie counties;

* A proposed grant to the Erie-Western Pennsylvania Port Authority to construct a fishing pier;
* A proposed rulemaking to impose a closed season on river herring on the Delaware River;
* A staff proposal to close Lehigh County’s Leaser Lake to all fishing until June 18, 2016, in order to establish a high quality fishery. The lake was completely drained in fall 2008 in order to make repairs to the dam.
* The addition of eight stream sections to the list of self-sustaining Class A wild trout populations; and
* Proposed habitat grants for a fishway on Bald Eagle Creek near Lock Haven, Clinton County; a restoration project on Darby Creek, a Delaware River tributary; and an enhancement project on Cacoosing Creek in Berks County.

“beloved husband, step-father, grandfather & friend”

MILLPORT, PA---Marlin A. Schoonover, 71, of Millport, died Friday, January 14, 2011 in Coudersport, after a short illness.

Born April 10, 1939 in Woodville, he was a son of Frank and Della Nelson Schoonover. On May 25, 1961 in Buffalo, NY, he married Teena A. Bergstrom who died April 20, 1990. On September 14, 1996 in the First Baptist Church in Shinglehouse, he married Susan J. Silsby Mead, who survives.

Martin Luther King Re-Enactor Will Present "We're Moving On" At Pitt-Bradford


BRADFORD, Pa. – Award-winning actor and director Dr. C. Anthony Jackson will use music, poetry, storytelling and re-enactments to chronicle Martin Luther King Jr.’s life Friday, Jan. 21, at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford.

He will present “We’re Moving On” at 7:30 p.m. in Bromeley Family Theater in Blaisdell Hall. Cost is $10 for the public and free for students, faculty and staff. A question-and-answer session will follow the program.

Jackson will bring to light King’s softer side, including his humor, frailties, fear and anger. Many only know King as a great American civil rights leader, minister and orator who played a large role in weaving African Americans into society.

“What I like particularly about this production is his commitment to show seldom-seen aspects of Dr. King,” said Randy Mayes, director of arts programming at Pitt-Bradford. “Dr. King had moments of doubt, pent-up anger and human frailties. Perhaps his moments of weakness underscore how much more impressive it was that he was able to rally past his failings and still achieve the remarkable things he did.”

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette hailed Jackson’s show as a “moving portrayal of Dr. King ...and his voice is hauntingly authentic.”

Jackson is a former professor and member of the performance faculty in the department of drama at the University of Michigan. For eight years, he headed the Black Theater Studies Program.

He has appeared on television and movies, such as the “Walker: Texas Ranger” TV series. He has also been part of regional theater companies in Houston, New York, Philadelphia, Los Angeles and Virginia.

Jackson toured internationally with the award-winning production “Diary of Black Men.” He is the founder and managing director of Artists Unlimited Inc.

Jackson received a bachelor of fine arts degree from Carnegie-Mellon University, a master’s degree from the University of Michigan, and a doctoral degree at Wayne State University in Detroit.

He lives in Houston.
