Era Reporter Details Arraignment In Bradford Homicide

Former Bradford restaurant owner killed, father-in-law charged

By RUTH BOGDAN Era Reporter
Bradford Era

Melvin Bizzarro died Friday morning after being shot in the chest in the rear parking lot of the restaurant he used to own. The suspect? His father-in-law.

Stephen Stidd — owner of Togi’s Sub Station and Bizzarro’s father-in-law — was arrested.

Police found in Stidd’s gun one live round that literally had the victim’s name on it. Meanwhile, Stidd’s attorney said Bizzarro was trespassing at the time he died.

Stidd, 62, of 725 E. Main St., was arraigned on one homicide charge Friday afternoon before District Judge Dominic Cercone.

Several family members attended the hearing. 

Exposures Saved And No Injuries In New Hudson House Fire

Proposed changes to the mentored youth hunting program

The game commission has proposed to eliminated Deer and Turkey from the mentored youth program for hunters under 9

These numbskulls think that shooting a woodchuck or coyote with a 243 rifle is different or somehow safer that shooting a deer.

These numbskulls think because of a few bad apples changing the law will stop them from poaching. NOT

These numbskulls want to take away the best program that they have ever come up with.

These numbskulls don’t realize hunting on a nice warm morning in May is just the thing that will keep youth hunting and keep the heritage alive.

I would rather be in the woods with any 7 year old sitting on his dads lap with a 243 than in the woods with many of the idiots out there 25 years and older.

Contact your commissioner and your state rep before they change this program rather than expand it.

G. Amend 58 Pa. Code § 147.804.

Commentary: The Commission has received extensive public comment regarding concern over the appropriateness of young children’s abilities to utilize high-powered firearms to harvest big game, as well as allegations of adults utilizing the harvest tags of mentored youth unlawfully. Wildlife Conservation Officers have encountered evidence of the allegations in several enforcement operations this past hunting season. The removal of eligibility for mentored youth under the age of 9 to harvest big game is intended to minimize both concerns expressed in public comment. The Commission is proposing to amend § 147.804 by removing deer and turkey from the list of species mentored youth under the age of 9 are eligible to harvest.

PA Farm Show Draws to a Close

Area Bridges Slated for Replacement Under Public-Private Partnership Program

With the passage of Act 88 of 2012, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives authorized the creation of the Rapid Bridge Replacement Project, which provides a faster method to fix Pennsylvania’s most deficient bridges.

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation recently announced it has finalized the list of bridges which will be included in this $899 million project, including more than two dozen in the Cameron/McKean/Potter region. All designated bridges must be replaced within 36 months. To see the full list of 558 bridges slated for replacement, click here.

The Rapid Bridge Replacement Project uses Public-Private Partnerships (P3s) to fix more bridges for less money, faster and more safely by using private construction firms to replace them. In turn, these companies are compensated for their work based on performance. Ultimately, this situation saves the taxpayer money, provides family-sustaining jobs, encourages business investment in the Commonwealth and improves the condition of bridges. To learn more about P3s in Pennsylvania, visit

DEP Announces Settlement with Range Resources for Water Withdrawal Irregularities Portion of the Penalty to be used for Community Environmental Project.

PITTSBURGH -- The Department of Environmental Resources (DEP) has entered into a $1.75 million dollar settlement agreement with Range Resources for failure to keep proper water withdrawal records and for exceeding the amount of water withdrawn under an approved DEP Water Management Plan.

Under the state’s Oil and Gas Act, Range was required to have the approved Water Management Plan (WMP) covering the company’s withdrawal of water from state waterways for use in natural gas drilling. DEP approved Range’s WMP in July 2009.

The company did not adhere to their plan. From July 2009 to February 2014, Range did not record daily maximum water withdrawal and instantaneous maximum withdrawal rates, as required.

Under their WMP, Range was also required to report water withdrawal rates electronically to the Department’s Water Use Database System (WUDS). The information provided by the company was often different than or not supported by existing records.

The company has since changed its withdrawal, monitoring and reporting practices so that they meet the requirements of its WMP and the law. The company has also corrected the information previously submitted to WUDS.

According to the terms of the settlement, Range will pay a fine of $800,000 and will fund almost $950,000 toward the rehabilitation, expansion, and operation of the Hamilton Abandoned Mine Treatment System in Findlay Township, Allegheny County. The project will be implemented through a public-private partnership consisting of the Raccoon Creek Watershed Association, the Independence Conservancy, Penn’s Corner Conservancy Charitable Trust, Washington and Allegheny County Conservation Districts, two local landowners, and BioMost, Inc.

This passive mine water treatment system was originally constructed in 2003 as part of an effort to lessen the impact of mine drainage in the Raccoon Creek Watershed. It functioned successfully for a number of years until access to the system was restricted by a property owner. The system subsequently fell into disrepair and is now in need of renovation and expansion. The property now has a new owner and access to the system has been re-established. Range will pay $758,089 for the rehabilitation and expansion of the system and an additional $191,000 toward long-term operation and maintenance of the system.

“Protection of our natural resources is a key component of DEP’s mission.” John Ryder, DEP’s Director of Oil and Gas Operations said. “This innovative agreement does that directly by providing support for a local project that will improve our state’s waterways without the use of additional public funding.”

Range proposed the project as part of the settlement discussions with DEP and has pledged to sign an Implementation Agreement for the project that includes an outline of the scope of the project, a commitment by the conservation district to complete the project and a plan for submitting progress reports to DEP.

DEP approved the Hamilton AMD project in lieu of receiving additional penalties because the project will provide a substantial benefit to public health and the environment. The project also has strong local support.

Outside of this agreement, the project is not something that Range is otherwise legally required to do and Range may not deduct any costs incurred in connection with implementation of the project for any tax purposes.

Galeton Rotary News

Galeton Rotary News

by Henry Lush

The Galeton Rotary Club met Thursday evening, January 15 at 6:30 at the Ox Yoke Inn. Clyde Pierce, Principal of the Galeton Area School District, presented the program for the evening. Clyde is also a member of Galeton Rotary.

Clyde spoke about the Building Level Academic Score at the GASD. Presently the score is 69.4. Good scores for the school are in math, grade 3 reading programs and literature. The GASD will be working extensively this year to raise all scores.

There are approximately 368 students in the GASD. 36 student are now in cyber school. The cyber school program is costing the GASD $500,000. annually. This expenditure is putting a severe budgetary strain on the school. Because of this state program the GASD cannot monitor student performance and several other aspects of cyber school. Hopefully the state government will make changes in the legislation governing this program which will allow the school to track student performance and the overall outcome of the student taking this course.

Rotary in 2015 is planning to rebuilding the Christmas Star, repair and upgrade the lake benches and flower boxes and replant the missing trees around the lake. Work will begin on the 2015 Woodsmen's Show and the annual Cole Memorial sponsored blood testing will be hosted by the club in March.

Has America failed?


Has America failed?

Latest (news) treasurers report ( national ), we are spending 200 million dollars an hour (24/7) every day ,for new debt . Currently we are approx. 20 trillion in debt. Shortly we will not afford to be able to pay interest payments, let alone payment on the debt .

Amount of persons estimated to be unemployed is 91 million or 49 % of the total work force. All figures are taken from current (wnd ) news reports. If our currently elected persons we sent to Washington don't turn around our spending and employment rate. we as a nation have failed. We will not be the greatest nation on earth. Our elected President will have achieved his goal as he has stated in past speeches. We are no longer a Christian nation but are fast becoming a Muslim nation and a third rate country. Even in the White House and Congress we have more Muslims then persons who openly admit they are Christians. Some are sworn in using the Koran. Check it out and see for yourself.

I say this because Christians who believe the Bible would not allowed gay marriage, birth control, abortions, free things instead of working, and race relations to enter into any policy making when it comes to laws that pertain to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness and our Constitution. If we obeyed just the ten commandments as written, we would be a lot more better off. As in the Bible, give to God what is God's and give to Caesar what is Caesar's. No I am not a Bible thumper just a believer because I know I have sinned in the past but was forgiven at the Altar. I just wish more Christians would stand up and let it be known that we stand united.

As a Pastor stated in his sermon this week, once all Christians have been raptured up, the government will need a new source of income as those (51 % ) who have left were the ones who worked and paid taxes to support the government.

BRADFORD, Pa. – The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford will mark Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday Monday with service projects and a celebration in the Harriett B. Wick Chapel.

Pitt-Bradford will also close its administrative offices, and there will be no classes that day to commemorate King’s birthday. Offices will reopen and classes will resume Tuesday, Jan. 20.
