Chamber Of Commerce Writes About Roulette Yard Sales

To Whom this concerns,
I cannot believe some people in this town!! It is so sad that everyone is out to knock you down. 

I cannot believe you cannot pay $5.00 to be on the map for yard sales. 

We are a CHAMBER OF COMMERCE, rather some people believe it or not and we have been grandfathered and have everything to show it. Also why do people who are now doing some other things such as fap have to cook on town wide yard sales and try to take business away from us. 

Well, we know the people and I don't know how they have enough nerve and why they would want to ask to rent the park and rent the park. The money we make all goes to there for fixing things kids destroy, upkeep, garbage, water, electric, etc. We don't get rich. 

Also it is rented every weekend, it is used a lot. I would like to have some responses from people that think we have done a great job for the last 11 years. Maybe some of you should have, and still should, step up to the plate to help, huh??????? 

We have always done the Easter Egg Hunt and had great prizes and now I hear a certain some one is going to take that over. Find your own s--------to do. We really work hard there to keep it nice. So people who couldn't spend $5.00, go somewhere else to do your fund raising.

C of C 

Thanks to all of you who paid to be on the map!!!!!!!!!!

There are plenty of opportunities to show some appreciation to your mother this Mother’s Day in the Allegheny National Forest Region, whether it’s creating a craft together, shopping for some bling or sipping some wine.

Mark off the weekend of May 12 and May 13 for mom and treat her to something special here at Trail Central, located in northwestern Pennsylvania, just 90 miles south of Buffalo, N.Y.

You won’t need to needle mom into going to this great little store. Keeping Ewe in Stitches, at 10 Chestnut Street in Bradford, is a wonderful place to pick up your knitting and crocheting supplies and you can even start a project to take home with you.

Call Doris at 814-331-4860 for details.

Another crafty place is Paper to Pages at 20 Congress Street, Bradford. This unique craft store also has classes that can help you create memories that last a lifetime, as well as a place to keep those memories.

Here, you can learn about scrapbooking – including getting all the supplies for it – and can also create a photo scrapbook. Call 814-368-2530 if you’d like to take a class.

And what mom would not want a treat from Miss Maggies, a great place to pick up jewelry, purses and scarves at reasonable prices.

After working up an appetite, treat mom to a burger and a shake – and a step back in time – at Burgers & BBQ. Here, poodle skirts are not mandatory, but you wouldn’t exactly look out of place with one on either.

Located at 1020 E. Main St., in Bradford, Burgers & BBQ is the home of the pulled pork burger and serves fresh cut chips with each sandwich. This 50s-style restaurant offers the ambience Betty Boop and Elvis as well as curbside service.

After a morning in Bradford, travel to nearby Kane, about a 30-minute drive, to indulge in herbs, art and wine.

After a full day shopping and crafting with mom, “wine” down a little bit by stopping at the Flickerwood Wine Cellars & Lounge. Located at 309 Flickerwood Road in Kane, Flickerwood Wine Cellars offers award-winning wines that will please a variety of pallets whether it is white or red, sweet or dry.

An annual event in the area is a perfect place to take mom to enjoy the great outdoors and do some shopping, too.

Go on Mother’s Day and mom gets in for free. Call Cindy at 716-372-7790 for more information.

You can also put your best foot forward with mom by taking a stroll in the Mansion District in Smethport.

Take a leisure journey back in time when the lumber barons lived in the town of Smethport, the home of the famed Bucktail Regiment of the U.S. Civil War. Some of the buildings highlighted in this tour are the home of Henry Hamlin, who was once the wealthiest private banker in the United States, the Melbury House, once the stopover for slaves escaping north via the Underground railroad and the home of noted Civil War surgeon Dr. S.D. Freeman.

Tax Cuts Announced From Gambling Monies

Homeowners Getting Break On School Taxes

taxexemptionPotter County homeowners who applied for the “homestead exemption” will see a credit on their school taxes this summer, reflecting the discount for owner-occupied homes. School districts will be reimbursed the amount from the gaming monies.

Austin Area School District homeowners will see a reduction of $314, identical to last year’s figure. In Coudersport, the tax cut is $176, almost the same as the $179 reduction in 2011. Tax credits in Galeton are $211; Oswayo Valley, $151, Northern Potter, $200. About $615 million will be distributed statewide this year.

Many homeowners in local school districts have not applied for the homestead exemption. Those who may qualify will receive another notice/application by mail later this year. They have until March 1, 2013, to apply for the reduction on their 2012-13 school tax bills. Those who are already registered do not need to reapply. Future tax reductions will fluctuate, based on the amount of revenue the state derives from gambling operations.

School tax bills will be mailed in late July. Taxpayers will receive a two-percent discount if they pay their bill by Sept. 30. A penalty is applied to payments made after Nov. 30.

BRADFORD, Pa. – Dr. Tammy Haley, assistant professor of nursing, has received the 2012 Chairs’ Faculty Teaching award for excellence in teaching at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford.

“Tammy stands out for her high teaching scores, her leadership in a campus outreach project to help a struggling clinic in Cameroon, Africa, and in the way she brings an analytical, evidence-based nursing approach to Pitt-Bradford students,” said Dr. Mary Mulcahy, associate professor of biology and chairwoman of the Division of Biological and Health Sciences, who nominated Haley.

Haley was chosen for the award by the chairmen and chairwomen of Pitt-Bradford’s five academic divisions.

In choosing an award recipient, the chairpersons reviewed letters of recommendation, student evaluations of teaching, syllabi and grade distribution. They also considered the teachers’ knowledge of subject matter and their advising and dedication in working with students beyond the classroom in such activities as internships and research projects.

The award, which is now in its 11th year, is open to any full-time faculty member who has taught at Pitt-Bradford for at least three consecutive academic years.

In June 2011, Haley and nursing student Amy Silvis traveled together to Cameroon to help bring money and medical supplies to the Good Samaritan Clinic in the town of Ekona. Although everyone in the nursing program helped to raise the money and gather the supplies for the effort, Haley was one of the leaders of this effort and worked with students across campus to coordinate the distribution and transport of the supplies.

“Dr. Haley has an impressive active research program and recent publication,” Mulcahy said, “including a 2011 publication in the Journal of Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Nursing.”

Mulcahy said that Haley is also an exceptional classroom teacher. “She has used the audience response system to her courses, where student responses to questions are recorded electronically during a lecture. She integrated a ‘food day’ across the entire nursing curriculum as a way of instructing students about the importance of food in societal issues.”

In her observations of Haley in the classroom, Mulcahy said, “I was impressed by her calm, interactive and very collegial approach to teaching. Tammy is an instructor who is moving around the room all the time, even in a large class, asking questions and leading the students in discussion. I do not recall ever having been in a class that involved instruction of math where students appeared so attentive to the instructor.”

Haley is the coordinator of the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program at Pitt-Bradford. She holds a Master of Science in Nursing and recently completed her doctorate in nursing from the Pitt School of Nursing.

Before coming to Pitt-Bradford in 2003, she worked for the Family Health Council Inc. of Bradford, where she was the primary provider in the Family Planning office. She lives in Bradford.

Past recipients of the Chairs’ Faculty Teaching Award are Isabelle Champlin, Dr. Hashim Yousif, Dr. Jean Truman, Andrea Robbins, Dr. Helene Lawson, Dr. Joanne Burgert, Dr. Nancy McCabe, Donald Lewicki, Dr. Donald Ulin and Dr. Lauren Yaich.



BRADFORD, Pa. -- A new mural is ready to greet summer residents of Dorn House at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford this summer.

The underwater mural, which was created by members of the Pitt-Bradford Art Club, depicts an underwater scene with shipwreck, circling shark, monstrous octopus, jellyfish and a peaceful sea turtle.

The mural was initiated by Dr. Ron Binder, associate dean of student affairs, who liked the tradition of murals in Pitt-Bradford’s academic buildings and thought they would also brighten up residence halls on campus.

The three previous murals on campus, however, had been produced by members of the art faculty along with their students. Binder asked resident assistant Sierra Kelly to head up the project. In addition to being an RA, Kelley had taken one of Pitt-Bradford’s mural classes last spring with Oleg Gotchev, a visiting professor from the National Academy of Arts in Sofia, Bulgaria.

Kelly, a psychology major with an art minor from Claystown, Pa., who was also president of the campus art club, agreed and began brainstorming the idea with Jenny Trippett, an entrepreneurship major from Lemont who will be club president for the 2012-13 academic year, and other art club members. They also consulted with Gotchev on the design.

Kelly said that the students liked the idea of a colorful scene during Bradford’s snowy winters and decided that each of the resident halls should depict different scenes from nature, beginning with the ocean.

The residence life office paid for the paint for the murals, and Binder hopes to have murals painted in Reed-Coit House and Fesenmyer House also.

Internship, Student Experience Help Put Grad in Fulltime Job

Internship, Student Experience Help Put Grad in Fulltime Job

DuBOIS – Anne Ziegler, of Ridgway, graduated from Penn State DuBois on a Saturday, and started her full-time job in the accounting department at Goodwill Industries of North Central Pennsylvania the following Monday.  However, what may appear as a ride on the fast track is really due to Ziegler's ability to work hard and seize good opportunities.

Ziegler returned to college as an adult learner after years of running her own nail salon.  Looking for a career change, Ziegler said she mustered up the courage to enroll at Penn State DuBois and pursue a bachelor's degree in business with an emphasis in accounting. 

"It's a major decision to go back to school as an adult learner," she said.  "But you have to remember that you're not the only one doing it.  We're all doing it together and with support from other adult learners and people on campus, you can do it.  You don't know what doors might open up for you."

The doors that would open for Zeigler included the opportunity to work for Goodwill part-time while completing her degree.  Armed with the same confidence she had built up while making her decision to become a student again, she answered a classified ad Goodwill had placed in the newspaper advertising the part-time accounting job.  She remembered, "I was looking for something to compliment my degree and give me experience that would apply to my new career. I applied for the position not knowing how this would turn out."

It turned out to be the very beginning of Ziegler's new career.  She went to work, part-time, at Goodwill's Falls Creek office in January of 2011, over a year before she graduated with her degree. 

"Goodwill was willing to work with me; work around my schedule, and willing to teach me the things I didn't know yet," Ziegler said, noting that the combination of experience and employment that she had obtained was an ideal fit with her various roles as a wife, mother, and student. 

Then, administrators at Goodwill decided to establish an internship program. With good relationships already established, Ziegler was also able to land the internship at Goodwill, filling a requirement of her curriculum. 

"The internship actually expanded my knowledge of accounting and working with payroll," Ziegler said, explaining that the internship guidelines required her to work beyond the responsibilities of her initial part-time position.  "Goodwill Industries of North Central Pennsylvania employs 400 people at 35 locations, so the payroll work can be complex."

The experience Ziegler gained through her part-time work and internship led to more opportunity as Goodwill looked to expand their accounting department.  With her Penn State degree under her belt, Ziegler rose to the top of the candidate pool. 

"I think the business curriculum at the campus gave me a well-rounded education," Ziegler said.  "I was able to contribute to so many areas, and that opened more doors for me."

Ziegler's supervisor, Chief Financial Officer at Goodwill Industries of North Central Pennsylvania, Tom Glasl agreed.  He said, "She's been fantastic.  She came very prepared, and that's why we gave her the internship here."

Glasl said that before Ziegler, Goodwill did not offer many internships, but that is about to change.

"Her internship here showed us what to do and how well internships can work," Glasl said. 

Goodwill now plans to take on one Penn State DuBois student intern each semester. 

"They get a great experience.  We are a traditional non-profit, but we're run like a business.  So, they get a good look at both non-profit and business operations," said Glasl.   

As an intern, turned employee, Ziegler said the experience was just what she was looking for.  The new Penn State DuBois alumna now looks back fondly at how far she has come, while she looks ahead to future accomplishments.

"I have met a lot of goals that I set for myself five years ago.  I'm very happy," Ziegler said.  Her experience, however, has also inspired her to keep learning.  "I'm planning to take more classes, and maybe go back for a master's."
