Honoring a Potter County WWII Veteran

I was honored to take part in a ceremony last weekend to designate the Route 49 Bridge over the Cowanesque River in Harrison Township, Potter County, as the Private First Class Berwyn Gaylord Cole Memorial Bridge. Cole, a former resident of Elmer in Harrison Township, was killed in action at the Battle of the Bulge on Dec. 21, 1944, at the age of 19.

Enhancing Opportunities

I was happy to take part in the ribbon cutting and grand opening of the new location of the PA CareerLink of Cameron County and the Community Education Center of Elk and Cameron counties in Emporium on Monday. Both of these organizations provide valuable services to our community and the new location will only help to enhance those opportunities.

Joe Scarnati’s office; me; Congressman Glenn “GT” Thompson; Phil Jones, Cameron County commissioner; Glen Fiebig, Cameron County commissioner, Emporium Borough Mayor Bruno Carnovale; Fritz Lecker, Rep. Matt Gabler’s office; Thomas Bogacki Jr., site manager administer of the Cameron PA CareerLink; and Susan Snilick, Workforce Investment Board director.

Speak Up!

The Pennsylvania Game Commission is inviting sportsmen to take part in a survey to contribute to the development of the state’s five-year Outdoor Recreation Plan. It wants to know what types of outdoor activities are most important to you. Be sure to take a moment to make your voice heard... 

Fish for Free This Memorial Day!

The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission will host the first of two Fish for Free Days on Memorial Day, Monday, May 26. On this day, anyone (resident or non-resident) may legally fish on all Pennsylvania waterways without a fishing license. All other fishing regulations will still apply. This is a great way to expose the next generation of anglers to the outdoors. Find more information here. Whether you choose to fish, go on a weekend getaway or hold a family picnic, please be sure to remember the real purpose of Memorial Day and devote some time to remembering the men and women who lost their lives in defense of our nation.
