Keating Township


We want to remind residents of Keating Township, Potter County of the meeting on Monday, May 5th at 7 PM.

Keating Township is considering stopping its rubbish pick up service. 

The pros and cons of this idea were discussed at the April meeting.The cost of the service was one major factor, as the fees charged do not cover the costs of labor, fuel, repairs and tipping fees.On the other hand, providing the service is good for older folks who don't want to drive to Gold to get rid of their rubbish. Finding rubbish over the banks and having to put rubbish bags in a car were some of the other negative aspects to this idea.

The Supervisors decided to alert the residents to this idea and hopefully have a discussion at the May 5th meeting. We would hope that all interested residents would attend the May meeting and express their concerns over this proposal.

To all Roulette Alumni Association Members: The Reservation Deadline Is Fast Approaching

To all Roulette Alumni Association Members:

As noted in our program at last year’s banquet we have decided to cut down on the mailing of invitations due to the rising cost of postage, printing, etc. We will not be mailing invitations to anyone located in the Port Allegany, Roulette or Coudersport area and we have also decided to not mail invitations to anyone that has joined the Roulette Alumni page and also friends on Facebook. We have dropped our mailing from over 700 invites to less than 200 saving the organization over approximately $150. TC Specialties has offered to print what invitations that are needed at a minimal cost, I will be donating the address labels, the Association will purchase the postage stamps and my parents will apply the labels and stamps for mailing. Again…this will save us over $150 just in mailing fees which does not include the cost of address corrections that we pay every year which I believe has amounted to at least $50 every year. Please share this information with Family and Friends that you know are members and may be interested in attending the banquet this year. All contact information is shown on the invitation.

Remember…you must be an Association member to attend the banquet…the banquet is not open to the public.

Pennsylvanians can weigh in by taking online survey.

Pennsylvania’s hunters, trappers, sport shooters and wildlife enthusiasts have the opportunity to make their opinions known.

An online survey, the results of which will be considered as part of an update to the Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan, remains open and can be completed in minutes.

Questions on hunting, conservation programs, wildlife habitat and land acquisitions are included on the survey.

State agencies are working with experts across Pennsylvania to update the Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan, which will help to guide future recreation investments, policies and facilities through 2018.

A new plan is required every five years in order for Pennsylvania to qualify for federal Land and Water Conservation funding.

Citizen feedback is a component that’s important in building the plan’s goals.

The online survey is one of three surveys that will be considered as part of Pennsylvania’s outdoor recreation plan update. A scientific survey was conducted earlier this year, and a survey of recreation providers also is being developed.

The online survey is completely confidential and can be accessed at The survey remains open until May 16.

After feedback from all three surveys is analyzed, a draft plan will be written in late summer and will be available for review and comment on the plan’s website. Feedback sessions will allow citizens, providers and interested stakeholders to give their input before a final document is presented to the National Park Service later this year. Learn more at

Warren County Students Locked In Rooms Friday While Police Search Lockers

Warren County Students Locked In Rooms Friday While Police Search Lockers
 3 Warren County Schools Involved; Police investigate/dispel rumors at Sheffield School

Warren County Public Safety posted this notice on their Facebook page at 12:45 PM on Friday:

On Friday, May 2, 2014 the Warren County School District with the services of the Pennsylvania State Police and the Narcotic Detector Dogs, conducted searches of Eisenhower Middle High School, Beaty-Warren Middle School, and Warren Area High School. The searches began at approximately 10:00 am and lasted until approximately 12:12 am. All interior locker areas and designated areas within each building were searched while students remained in classrooms. Central office administrators and building principals accompanied canine handlers from the Pennsylvania State Police throughout the search of each building. The District would like to thank the Pennsylvania State Police for their cooperation in today's events.

In a separate incident, rumors at Sheffield High School began yesterday when a student stated that students should wear the color blue tomorrow so they “don't get hurt”. This progressed throughout the day (yesterday), the rumor got bigger and more graphic, as rumors do. The student has been interviewed by law enforcement and the investigation is continuing; however I can say with confidence that there is no credible threat to any of the students or staff. 

The schools are not talking as to the reason for the actions, but say further information will be forthcoming.

Kids’ Fest a Success!

Congratulations to the McKean County Collaborative Board and the Bradford Family YMCA for hosting a successful Kids’ Fest last weekend. More than 150 children and their families came out for the event, which featured interactive displays, developmental screenings, early learning resources...and some neat balloon flowers as well! Jill and Kris from my Bradford office, as well as my daughter Mallory and I, had a great time meeting the kids and sharing craft activities to teach them about our Commonwealth.

Protecting Electricity Consumers

Responding to the skyrocketing electric bills some consumers received this winter, the House Consumer Affairs Committee this week approved legislation to improve the transparency of contracts between customers and electric generation suppliers.

Since many of the problems impacted consumers with variable rate contracts, House Bill 2104 would limit rate increases for customers with variable rate plans to no more than 30 percent per billing cycle.

To assist all consumers, the bill also would: require requests to switch suppliers to be completed within five business days; outline language all electric supplier contracts must contain to clearly explain terms; and give the Public Utility Commission (PUC) specific authority to investigate customer complaints related to the rates charged by electric generation suppliers.

The legislation now awaits additional consideration by the full House. For more information on choosing an electric supplier, visit
