Two Bradford Residents Suffer Major Injuries In Motorcycle Accident On Bennetts Valley Highway

State Police said a motorcycle operated by Daniel Hushon, 40, of Bradford was traveling south on homestead Drive and attempted to pass another vehicle. Hushon lost control, the motorcycle left the highway. Both Hushon and a passenger, Ashley Beckwith, 30, of Bradford, were thrown from the motorcycle. Both suffered major injuries.

Today Is 29th Anniversary of Tornadoes That Ravaged Ohio and Pennsylvania Killing 88 People

On May 31, 1985 a devastating group of tornadoes tore through Ohio and Pennsylvania causing death, injuries and destruction as they went. Kane, in McKean County, sustained 4 deaths as the tornado tore through the south end of Kane and hit East Kane directly obliterating that small community. 

The Tornado continued on crossing Route 219  and continuing across an area south of the McKean County Landfill across wooded areas crossing Route 155 south of the Village of Wrights. Trees were wiped out as if a giant vacuum cleaner had gone through. For years you could see along Route 155 where the tornado came over the hill from the Betula area and appeared to have stopped just past Route 155 South of Port Allegany. 

Other reports said there were thousands of dollars in tree damage in the Card Creek area near Roulette.

Tornado warnings were issued, but not really payed attention to because we don't get tornadoes in this part of the country. 

First realization of what had happened was hearing a dispatch on the scanner for police to investigate a house in the middle of the road near Avenelli's Garage. 

That caught our attention real quickly.

Subsequent radio communications gave indications of the seriousness of the damages. 

Papers blown out of houses in Cooperstown, Tidioute, Kane, and other western Pennsylvania towns were found dropped in lawns around Roulette & Coudersport. 

The weather bureau now classes the Kane tornado as an F-4. It was determined to be an F-5 in 1985.

 Devastation went up one side of hills and down the other side and was evidenced in the area just south of Penfield where a tornado crossed Route 153 from the top of one hill deep into the bottom of the valley and up the next hill, proving that the terrain of the hill country was not going to stop them or slow them down.

1985 gave us old timers a new respect for weather warnings, because tornadoes do happen in the Pennsylvania mountains.

...The worst Tornado Outbreak in PA history: May 31, 1985...
On the evening of May 31st, 1985, a devastating and deadly tornado outbreak struck the Northeastern United States and Canada. 41 tornadoes and numerous damaging thunderstorms tore across Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, and Ontario Canada, killing 88 people in total, injuring more than 1000 others, and totaling more than $450 million in property damage.

In all, a total of 23 confirmed tornadoes touched down on the evening of May 31st, 1985 between the hours of 5:05 and 11:00pm across Eastern Ohio, Southwestern NY, and Central and Western PA. This outbreak remains the worst in recorded history for this area. Of these 23 tornadoes, 8 were of violent intensity (F4 or F5), with estimated wind speeds over 200 mph, and 9 of these tornadoes produced fatalities.

21 of these 23 tornadoes touched down in Pennsylvania, producing 65 fatalities and over $300 million in damages. To put this in historical prospective, the number of fatalities on the 31st nearly equaled the tornado fatality total during the previous 50 years (69). Furthermore, the F5 tornado that struck Wheatland, PA is still believed to be the strongest tornado to ever touch down in Pennsylvania.

Brenda J. Nicolo, 67, of 533 N. Walnut St., Emporium, PA, died in her home surrounded by her loving family late Thursday evening May 29, 2014, following a lengthy and brave battle with cancer.

Things To Remember
Brenda was a member of the Deeper Waters Ministries in Emporium. She loved the Lord, her family, and her friends with all her heart. She lived daily to read and speak the Word of God to anyone she could. She had a gift of teaching, and she especially had a passion to minister to women. She loved to worship the Lord in spirit and in truth, and loved to spend time in His presence. She was the most considerate and compassionate person in the world- even reaching out and praying for others in her very last days. She was ALWAYS concerned for the well being and feelings of everyone around her. She enjoyed having tea and laughs with her friends. She loved anything Victorian and decorated in the like. She looked forward to going on beautiful walks and sitting on her porch. She was an amazing and selfless wife, mother and grandmother. Her youngest grandson was the joy of her life. She lived to love him and tell him about Jesus. He was her “Sunshine” and her best medicine throughout her life altering cancer journey. His smiling face helped give her strength daily.

Galeton Bridge Over South Branch


I was wondering if you have any information about the bridge that is being worked on (or torn out) located on Sherman Street here in Galeton. It is right next to the former Community Building and spans South Branch creek.

I haven't seen anything in the local papers as far as a time frame of the work and it's completion date. Do you have any information on this??

Maybe you've printed an article on this and I missed it. All I have heard is hear-say, nothing in writing. Would be nice to know how long we have to put up with this inconvenience.

I also cannot remember anything being printed in the local papers that told of this project and its eventual happening??

Thanks for any information....

Outreach Office Hours Set for June 5

To help ensure access to state government information and services, I will hold outreach office hours at the following locations on Thursday, June 5:
 • Emporium Borough Office – 9-10 a.m. 
 • Port Allegany Borough Office – 11 a.m. to noon.  

Congratulations to Ed Pitchford, president and chief executive officer of Cole Memorial Hospital in Coudersport, for receiving the Grassroots Champions Award from the American Hospital Association and the Hospital and Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania. In honor of his achievement, Suzan Paisley of my Coudersport office presented him with a citation from the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. The Grassroots Champions Award was created to recognize those hospital leaders who most effectively educate elected officials on how major issues affect hospitals’ vital role in the community, who do an exemplary job in broadening the base of community support for their hospitals, and are tireless advocates for their hospitals and patients. He is truly a champion for rural health care.

Budget Tops House Agenda in June

One of the most important – and most challenging – tasks facing the Legislature will take center stage in June. A state budget must be adopted in time for the start of the new fiscal year on July 1, and while talks have been ongoing since the governor’s budget address and a series of budget hearings in February and March, there is much work to be done.

According to the Independent Fiscal Office, year-over-year revenue is actually up, with Personal Income Tax up roughly 5 percent over last year, indicative of continuing employment gains in the Commonwealth. However, revenue growth has fallen far short of expectations, leaving a more than $1 billion hole to fill.

To track budget news, visit our websites at and I welcome your feedback as the budget develops.

Game and Fish Committee to Examine Merger Report

A Legislative Budget and Finance Committee (LBFC) report on the possibility of merging the Pennsylvania Game Commission and the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission will be formally presented to the House Game and Fisheries Committee during a meeting on Wednesday, June 4, at the state Capitol.

LBFC staff will make a presentation and then take questions from committee members about their findings. As chairman of the committee and sponsor of the House resolution that prompted the study, I am looking forward to a productive discussion to help us move the issue forward.

The study found that a merger of the commissions is feasible and would save the Commonwealth about $5 million annually, primarily through elimination of redundant upper level positions and duplication of services. Currently, Pennsylvania is the only state in the nation where management and oversight of fishing, boating and wildlife activities are managed by two separate, independent agencies.

The meeting will be streamed live at A copy of the LBFC report is available here.

Latest Habitat For Humanity Home Dedicated In Roulette

Latest Habitat For Humanity Home Dedicated In Roulette

An open house and dedication program in Roulette Thursday afternoon celebrated the latest Potter County Habitat for Humanity house, located at 116 Main Street in Roulette. 

Many of the 90-plus people who were involved in the long process of making the home become a reality were present as chapter president Dick Myers presented the key to the homeowners, Ira and Robyn Hogue-Watt and family. 

The modular home was assembled and completed by students from the Seneca Highlands Career and Technical Center in Port Allegany. One of the construction foremen, Duane Fry, pointed out that more than 2,900 volunteer hours were logged in making the home a reality. 

Habitat officials expressed appreciation to Fay Bennett Hauber and her husband, David Hauber, for donation of the lot and to many others who supported the project.

Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian ministry which seeks to reduce poverty and homelessness. Habitat builds affordable housing in partnership with low-income families. Family members, friends and community volunteers pitch in to build the homes, which are sold to the families at no profit and financed through affordable loans. 

Families are chosen based on need, willingness to become partners and ability to repay the loan.

 Habitat always welcomes help from skilled and unskilled individuals, groups from churches, and others. Help is needed for specialty skills, such as excavation, carpentry, masonry and plumbing, as well as more general responsibilities. 

For information about how to volunteer, donate or apply for help from Habitat, call 814-203-8605 or write to Potter County Habitat, P.O. Box 208, Coudersport PA 16915. Website is

Detour Scheduled to Begin June 9 for Bridge Replacement on Route 1021 in Potter County

Detour Scheduled to Begin June 9 for Bridge Replacement on Route 1021 in Potter County

Potter County - Work to replace a bridge in Harrison and Hector townships in Potter County will start Monday, with a detour in place June 9. When work is complete, area drivers will enjoy safer travel on a modern structure. PennDOT will be able to remove the bridge from Potter County’s structurally deficient list.

The bridge spans the Cowanesque River on Route 1021 (Teed Hollow Road), near the village of Potter Brook and carries an average of 87 vehicles daily. Originally built in 1938, the current bridge will be replaced with a single span, concrete bridge. Beginning Monday, crews will be performing preliminary work, including site set-up.

The actual replacement work requires closing the bridge. The closure is expected to be in effect June 9, at which time a 10-mile detour will be in place.

Overall work includes bridge replacement, paving, guide rail updates, drainage, and miscellaneous items. The contractor for this job is A. L. Blades of Hornell, N.Y. The project is expected to be complete by September. All work is weather and schedule dependent.

Drivers are reminded to follow official detour signs, obey posted speed limits and always buckle up.

Holding The VA Accountable

Holding The VA Accountable
America's Veterans Deserve Better
Introducing my plan to hold the VA accountable at Montgomery County's VFW this week.

Secret wait lists. Falsified health reports. Destroyed records.

Recent revelations surrounding the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) are troubling - and infuriating. The men and women who served in uniform should be first in line for the best quality medical care in the world. But many are not.

At Montgomery County VFW 3612, I announced my plan to allow veterans to sue Veterans Affairs employees who engage in these activities. My legislation would hold VA employees accountable if they falsify or destroy information relating to a veteran's health care. It would also authorize the firing of these employees.

America's veterans risked their lives to defend us. We have an obligation to make sure they receive the health care they deserve.

More Details On My Plan To Protect Vets
To protect America's veterans from dishonesty and malfeasance and hold VA employees accountable to those they serve, I will be introducing the VA Accountability Act. I plan to introduce this legislation this coming week.

Thompson Statement on the Resignation of Secretary Eric Shinseki from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs

Thompson Statement on the Resignation of Secretary
Eric Shinseki from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs  
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Representative Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson, R-PA, today issued the following statement after President Barack Obama accepted the resignation of Eric Shinseki, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA):  

"Secretary Shinseki is a dedicated public servant who has served this country with distinction, and we owe him a debt of gratitude for his service. Unfortunately, it has become very clear that his continued service as the top official at the Department of Veterans Affairs will distract from the urgent task of investigating these deplorable abuses and holding the VA accountable,” stated Rep. Thompson. 

“Clearly, the bureaucratic challenges that have plagued much of our veteran health care system will not be solved by a new face at the top,” Rep. Thompson added. “However, it is my hope this decision will heighten the level of urgency and thoroughness with which this investigation is carried out and corrective action is taken.”

Earlier today from the House floor, Rep. Thompson discussed H.R. 4031, the VA Management & Accountability Act, which passed the House last week with bipartisan support.  

"So much more must be done to correct these specific abuses and begin the process of restoring the trust of our veteran population,” Rep. Thompson said. “Passage of H.R. 4031 is one small but important step in this process.”

Rep. Thompson is a co-sponsor of H.R. 4031, legislation that makes it easier to hold senior VA leaders accountable.  The bill allows the VA Secretary to remove any individual from the Senior Executive Service if the Secretary determines that the individual's performance warrants such removal.

Gasland Part II—a film about natural gas drilling

Gasland Part II—a film about natural gas drilling

Thursday, June 5, 7:00PM Cameron County Chamber of Commerce

A few concerned citizens of Cameron County present:

Gasland Part II

Please arrive early for snacks and refreshments. Show will start at 7PM.
Cameron County, PA - Gasland Part II shows how the stakes have been raised on all sides in one of the most important issues facing our nation today. The film argues that the gas industry’s portrayal of natural gas as a clean and safe alternative to oil is a myth, and that fracked wells can and do leak, contaminating water and air, hurting families, and endangering the climate with methane. In addition the film looks at how the powerful oil and gas industries are in filmmaker Josh Fox's words "contaminating our democracy".

Budget: Setting Priorities, Spending with Sustainable Revenues

June is budget season in the State Capitol.

State revenue collections have been less than anticipated this year. Knowing we have to govern responsibly, House and Senate leaders have been meeting with the administration to work on the 2014-2015 state budget.

Reviewing each line in the budget, House budgeteers are looking at expenditures which can be reduced and changes to tax credits which may no longer be affordable, as well as considering responsible revenue sources, such as fully privatizing the adult beverage industry.

House Bill 790 (Rep. Mike Turzai, R-Allegheny County), which passed the House on March 21, 2013, and is awaiting Senate action, could, as passed in the House, bring in to state coffers approximately $1 billion through wholesale and retail licensing, and curbing border bleed. Through additional license fees and renewals, the legislation would ensure hundreds of millions of dollars annually for the General Fund while strengthening the regulatory and law enforcement components of the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board.

Dr. Shailendra Gajanan

BRADFORD, Pa. – A new book by Dr. Shailendra Gajanan, professor of economics at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford, will help students and practitioners perform statistical analyses in evaluating poverty and nutrition.

The book, “Food Security, Poverty and Nutrition Policy Analysis: Statistical Methods and Applications,” is a second edition. The original volume focused on Africa and was written by Prabuddha Sanyal and Suresh C. Babu, who is on the senior research staff of the International Food Policy Research Institute.

The new version, Gajanan said, has two-thirds more text and two new chapters. Although the original was published only five years ago in 2009, Gajanan said that rapid changes in the field required including large amounts of new research and incorporating hands-on examples and case studies using the statistical software Stata, which is used by most large policy-makers, such as the World Bank and United Nations.

Gajanan said he added large amounts of information about Latin America, Asia and food insecurity, and obesity in the United States. He also added new research and case studies about the effect of educating women, using corn and other foods to produce biofuels, and the effects of the 2008 global economic crisis.

Gajanan said that although the statistical analyses are designed for graduate students and those working in the field, the background and case studies used are appropriate for undergraduates.

Gajanan’s successful completion of the second edition earned him a second book contract with the same publisher for a book on economics and nutrition, which he will begin this summer with an eye on publishing it next summer.

In addition, this summer, Gajanan will travel to his native Chennai (Madras) region of India to work with graduate students from the University of Madras to design a study to measure indoor air pollution caused by cooking fires in Indian households. He said the work will examine topics such as health issues, deforestation, the amount of work days lost and how to give people incentive to use healthier cooking methods.

In the past, he has worked with similar teams of graduate students from the University of Madras to study the disease chikungunya. This fall, he will teach a special topics class at Pitt-Bradford in Global Hunger.
