NCAA DIII MBB Score: Pitt-Bradford 78, Mt. Aloysius 59

By Scott Elliott
Panthers Close Strong Against Aloysius, Win Third Straight

BRADFORD, Pa. - Pitt-Bradford men’s basketball closed Saturday’s game on a 28-4 scoring run and came from behind to defeat Mt. Aloysius, 78-59, for its third straight win.

Pitt-Bradford led for the majority of the game, but struggled to put the Mounties away until late. The Panthers led by as much as seven in the first half before taking a 43-37 cushion into the break.

After falling behind by eight early in the second half, Mt. Aloysius answered with a 9-0 run to go-ahead 48-47. Pitt-Bradford re-grabbed the lead on Welch’s long three, and the Mounties tied it on the next possession with a layup.

The visitors forced a turnover, and Brian Ream’s three-pointer made it 53-50 with 12:06 remaining. Nick Burk’s layup with 10:47 left stretched the Mounties lead to five. Fateem Brockington countered by converting an and-one play, and Christian Kelly-Perkins’ two free throws tied the game with just over nine minutes remaining.

Sahil Harris’ jumper on the next Pitt-Bradford possession put the Panthers in front for good, and after the teams traded baskets, Fateem Brockington’s three from the top of the key with 7:02 left made it 62-57.

Mt. Aloysius responded by converting two free throws but would go the final 5:56 without a point. Evan Greening scored inside on the next play, and the Panthers began pulling away. Pitt-Bradford iced the game at the line, going 8-10 over the final 2:28.

Pitt-Bradford shot 43 percent from the floor, including hitting eight threes, and scored 16 points off 18 Mt. Aloysius turnovers. The Panthers outrebounded the Mounties by six and held them to 2-16 shooting from long-distance in the second half. Mt. Aloysius missed its final 10 shots from the field and hit 41 percent of its attempts overall.

Brockington poured in a game-high 19 points and was 7-7 from the free throw line. Manny Welch added 16 points, and Jon Haenel chipped in with 11, hitting three first-half triples. Greening finished with a double-double of 13 points and 14 rebounds, and Harris totaled six rebounds, four points, three steals, three blocks and three assists.

Pitt-Bradford improves to 11-9 on the season and 9-5 in the AMCC. The Panthers host conference leader Medaille Wednesday at 8 p.m.

Eisenhuth 5-2-2-15, Burk 6-1-1-13, Williams 3-5-7-11, Sanders 4-0-0-9, Reams 3-1-1-9, Streets 1-0-2-2, McErlane 0-0-0-0, Brown 0-0-1-0, Garner 0-0-0-0. 22-9-14-59.

Allegheny Named Pennsylvania’s 2017 River of the Year

Harrisburg, PA – Among the most biologically diverse watersheds in Pennsylvania, and a a federally designated National Wild and Scenic Recreation River, the Allegheny River in western Pennsylvania has been voted the 2017 Pennsylvania River of the Year.

The general public was invited to vote online Nov. 14-Dec.19, choosing from among four waterways nominated across the state. Results were announced jointly today by the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and the Pennsylvania Organization for Waterways and Rivers (POWR).

Waterways nominated were: Allegheny River (Middle and Upper), and Brandywine, Loyalhanna and Perkiomen creeks.

“Pennsylvania is blessed with several large, iconic rivers and the Allegheny’s attributes are many, diverse and known so well to to the thousands who fish and paddle its rebounding waters and hike, bike and camp along its banks,” said DCNR Secretary Cindy Adams Dunn. “So rich in scenic beauty and historical significance, the Allegheny River is deservedly one of western Pennsylvania’s natural treasures.

“The Allegheny and the other three waterways nominated for 2017 all highlight our state’s wealth of rivers and streams, and its core of dedicated folks who fight to protect them.”

DCNR and POWR will work with the Penn Soil Resource Conservation and Development Council to create a free, commemorative poster celebrating the Allegheny River (Middle and Upper) as the 2017 PA River of the Year. The applicant, Penn Soil Resource Conservation and Development Council, will receive a $10,000 Leadership Grant to help fund River of the Year activities throughout the year.

"Through planned River of the Year celebrations, public awareness of the river's value will be increased and major initiatives along this section of the river will be underscored,” Dunn said. “Economic revitalization of river-town communities will enhance access to the river; increase tourism; and provide additional land and water-based recreational opportunities for local residents and visitors alike."
In cooperation with DCNR, selection of public voting choices was overseen by POWR, an affiliate of the Pennsylvania Environmental Council.

“POWR would like to commend everyone across the state for their support for the nominated rivers,” said POWR Vice President Janet Sweeney. “The River of the Year program is a wonderful opportunity to showcase all of the nominated rivers and the great work being done in Pennsylvania communities on these valuable resources."

POWR administers the River of the Year program with funding from DCNR. Presented annually since 1983, the 2016 River of the Year designation was awarded to the Susquehanna River North Branch in northeast Pennsylvania.

“Win or lose, it was going to be a great opportunity to create public awareness of the value of our waterways and engage the public to support the importance of the Allegheny River as a huge asset to our region,” said Wes Ramsey, executive director of Penn Soil Resource Conservation and Development Council. “We are also extremely grateful to DCNR, POWR and the many partner organizations, businesses and private citizens that helped in creating public awareness and encouragement of people to vote for the Allegheny River that led to its selection as the 2017 PA River of the Year.”

“Every year, thousands of people paddle down this beautiful river,” Ramsey said, “and winning this designation helps us focus more attention on its history; the value of clean water; its biological diversity; the recreational opportunities it provides; and the economic value of the Allegheny River to our region. Through public educational and recreational events and projects in the coming year, we hope to increase public awareness and participation in activities which will lead to increased stewardship of our natural resources.”

Home to an increasing bald eagle population, the Allegheny River flows more than 315 miles through the state, including a portion of the PA Wilds. With a watershed area of 11,580 square miles, it contributes 60 percent of the Ohio River flow at Pittsburgh. Eighty-six miles of the Allegheny River -- from Kinzua Dam to Emlenton -- are a federally designated National Wild and Scenic Recreation River, containing seven islands that are protected under America’s National Wilderness Preservation System.

The River of the Year sojourn is one of many paddling trips supported by DCNR and POWR each year. An independent program, the Pennsylvania Sojourn Program, is a unique series of a dozen such trips on the state’s rivers. These water-based journeys for canoeists, kayakers and others raise awareness of the environmental, recreational, tourism and heritage values of rivers.

PA 2017 Adult Trout Stocking Schedules Now Available

PA 2017 Adult Trout Stocking Schedules Now Available
HARRISBURG, Pa. (Feb. 1) – The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) announced today that the 2017 adult trout stocking schedules are now available online and on the PFBC’s “FishBoatPA” mobile app.
Anglers can easily search the trout stocking schedules for locations and dates of interest. To view the list, simply go to, click on the link “Fish” in the upper right corner, then select Trout Stocking Schedules. From there, select a county and enter start and end dates from the calendars at the top of the page. Then press “Go.”
For anglers with smartphones, an even easier way to view the schedules is through the FishBoatPA app, which is available for free from the Apple App and Google Play stores.
Included in this year’s stocking lists are the Keystone Select Stocked Trout Waters, a program where 14 waters across the state will be stocked with large 14” - 20” trout. Approximately 4,500 large trout will be distributed among the 14 waters at a rate of 175 to 225 per mile, which is comparable to the numbers of similarly sized fish in Pennsylvania’s best wild trout waters.
The program was launched last year with eight waters. This year six new waters are being added. Select here to see the list of waters.
The 2017 season will open March 25 for the Mentored Youth Trout Day program in 18 southeastern counties, including: Adams, Berks, Bucks, Chester, Cumberland, Dauphin, Delaware, Franklin, Juniata, Lancaster, Lebanon, Lehigh, Montgomery, Northampton, Perry, Philadelphia, Schuylkill and York.
The following weekend – April 1 – kicks off the Regional Opening Day of Trout Season in the same 18 southeastern counties.
A second Mentored Youth Day will be held on April 8, the Saturday before the April 15 regular opening day of trout season.
“The mentored youth program has been a very popular program from the moment we launched it in 2013,” said PFBC Executive Director John Arway. “It encourages adults to take kids fishing, to show them that fishing is fun, and to promote active, outdoor recreation.”
To participate in the mentored youth program, adult anglers (16 years or older) must have a valid fishing license and trout permit and be accompanied by a youth. Youth anglers must obtain a free PFBC-issued permit, or a voluntary youth fishing license (only $2.90 including all fees). Both are available at or at any of the more than 900 licensing agents across the state.
For every voluntary youth license sold, the PFBC receives approximately $5 in federal revenue from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Sport Fish Restoration Act program, which provides funds to states based on a formula that includes the number of licenses a state sells. All revenues earned from a voluntary youth fishing license are dedicated to youth fishing programs.
The PFBC annually stocks approximately 3.15 million adult trout in more than 720 streams and 120 lakes open to public angling. These figures include approximately 2 million rainbow trout; 640,000 brown trout; and 500,000 brook trout. As with past practice, the average size of the trout produced for stocking is 11 inches in length.
In addition to these fish, the PFBC plans to stock about 8,700 trophy golden rainbow trout that weigh an average of 1.5 pounds and measure at least 14 inches long. Also, PFBC cooperative nurseries run by sportsmen’s clubs across the state will add another 1 million trout to waters open to public angling.
A majority of the trout waters will be stocked in advance of the mentored youth days. But some of the waters may not be stocked in time due to weather, water conditions and scheduling logistics. Also, special regulation areas, like Catch and Release Fly-Fishing Only or Delayed Harvest Artificial Lures Only, are not included in the mentored youth program.
Changes for the 2017 season include new waters, waters restored to the stocking program, and the removal of waters from the stocking program. 
2017 Adult Trout Stocking Program Changes
Stocking additions, extensions and waters restored to the stocking program
Glade Run Lake, Butler County
Adult trout stocking will be reinstated in this 51.9-acre lake following the completion of construction work to restore the lake. Rainbow trout will be stocked during the preseason and inseason stocking periods.
Lehigh River, Carbon County
Located near Jim Thorpe, PA, a 3.1-mile section of stream extending from 0.3 miles upstream from the railroad bridge at Glen Onoko downstream to the confluence with Mauch Chunk Creek will be added to the adult trout stocking program. Rainbow trout and brown trout will be stocked during the preseason stocking period.
Cold Stream Dam, Centre County
Adult trout stocking will resume in this 9.9-acre impoundment following the completion of maintenance repairs to the dam structure. Rainbow trout will be stocked during the preseason and inseason stocking periods.
Pequea Creek, Lancaster County
A 1-mile extension of the stocking limits will lead to an increase in the number of trout allocated to this stream. The revised stocking limits will extend for a distance 5.4 miles from the Wanner Drive Bridge (T-515) downstream to a point 110 yards downstream from School Lane Road (T-948). Rainbow trout will be stocked during the preseason stocking period and Brown Trout and Rainbow Trout will be stocked during the inseason stocking period.
White Deer Creek, Union County
An inseason stocking will be added to the 3-mile section of stream extending from the SR 0080 Bridge (West bound lane) downstream to the mouth. Formerly, this section of stream had been stocked on a preseason-only basis. Brook trout and brown trout will be stocked during the inseason stocking period.
Early Warning Waters
Hockenberry Run, Clearfield County
An increase in the amount of landowner posting has led to the removal of trout stocking from the 4-mile section of stream extending from Irvona Reservoir on State Game Land # 120 downstream to the mouth.
Little Clearfield Creek, Clearfield County
An increase in the amount of landowner posting has led to the removal of trout stocking from a 4.3-mile section of stream extending from 0.2 miles upstream from the SR 2023 Bridge (Turkey Hill Bridge) downstream to the confluence with Laurel Run.
Minsi Lake, Northampton County
The inseason and fall stockings will be removed from this 122-acre impoundment due to a drawdown scheduled to occur during the Spring of 2017 for maintenance repairs to the dam. A preseason stocking of rainbow trout will be made to provide early spring angling opportunities prior to the drawdown.
Donegal Lake, Westmoreland County
This 89.9-acre impoundment will be removed from the adult trout stocking program in 2017 due to a drawdown to allow for maintenance repairs to the dam.

NCAA DIII WBB Score: Mt. Aloysius 63, Pitt-Bradford 59

By Scott Elliott
Pitt-Bradford's Comeback Bid Falls Short Versus Mt. Aloysius

BRADFORD, Pa. - The Pitt-Bradford women’s basketball team’s comeback bid fell short Saturday, and the Panthers lost to visiting Mt. Aloysius, 63-59.

The Mounties led for nearly the entire game, building an 18-point second half lead, and held on in final minute as the Panthers missed three attempts to tie the game.

Pitt-Bradford struggled to hit shots all afternoon, shooting 27 percent from the floor and missed its first 13 attempts from long-distance.

Mt. Aloysius built a double-digit lead midway through the second quarter behind a 10-3 scoring run and led 37-23 at the break. The Panthers compounded matters by shooting 6-24 in the opening 20 minutes.

With the third quarter winding down, Mt. Aloysius rattled off five straight points to extend its advantage to 18, 54-36. Darien Lantz scored just before the horn sounded, and Pitt-Bradford trailed by 16 entering the final frame.

The Panthers trimmed the Mountie lead to nine twice in the first five minutes of the fourth quarter, yet the visitors responded each time to push it back to double-digits.

Following a free throw by Ali Rinfrette, Pitt-Bradford forced a turnover, and Kaserra Owens scored on a putback to pull the Panthers within 61-54. Brittany Watts’ jumper with 2:32 left made it 62-56, and after the teams exchanged free throws, Rinfrette’s layup with 1:32 shaved the Mt. Aloysius margin to three, 62-59.

The Mounties missed a three-pointer on the ensuing possession, but Rinfrette was off the mark on her shot. Pitt-Bradford again forced a turnover, yet Lantz’ try from long-range missed. As the Mounties attempted to push the ball up the court, Lantz recorded her only steal of the day, affording the Panthers another chance to tie the game.

Rinfrette had her first attempt at a tying triple with 23 second left blocked, and her second attempt rolled off the rimmed. After a Mounties rebound, Kara Cordell hit a one-of-two free throws to ice game with seven seconds left.

Pitt-Bradford finished 5-30 from behind the three-point line and was 22-32 from the line, including missing three in the final quarter. Mt. Aloysius hit 36 percent of its attempts and connected for seven threes. The Mounties outrebounded the Panthers by four and scored 14 second-chance points.

Rinfrette had a game-high 21 points and was 8-12 from the stripe. Watts added 15 points and eight rebounds, and Lantz finished with 11 points. Owens pulled in 11 rebounds, and Shirleah Ragin dished out four assists.

Pitt-Bradford, which had its three-game win streak snapped, falls to 12-9 on the season and 9-5 in the AMCC. The Panthers host Medaille Wednesday at 6 p.m. in a matchup of two teams tied for second in the AMCC.

Wright 5-3-4-16, Servello 5-1-2-12, Cordell 3-4-8-10, Kendrick 3-0-0-7, Parks 2-1-2-5, Sammarco 2-0-0-5, Bracken 2-0-0-4, Kulick 1-1-2-4. 23-10-18-63.

Bill Pekarski: Day 157, Living life on my terms

Bill Pekarski:

Day 157, Living life on my terms.

I was reading an article in this week’s Endeavor News about the Eulalia Cemetery that overlooks the valley on the western side of Coudersport along Route 6. The cemetery’s board of directors last year put out a call for help due to a deepening financial crisis. The Endeavor story reports that many donations have been received, but directors are still in need of more revenue to maintain this historical final resting place and community treasure.

In the past, maintenance costs were largely covered through donations as well as interest on investments. With falling interest rates over recent years combined with a decrease in donations, the board of directors has been forced to dip into those holdings to cover financial needs. Without fresh funds, the Eulalia Cemetery will run out of money in less than three years.

For me the cemetery has just always been there. It is not something that most of us think about very often, even though we may drive by it every day.

When I used to ride the bus to school, I remember looking out at the tombs and gravestones as we rode by each morning and afternoon. I would marvel at the multitude of American flags that mark the graves of armed forces veterans each Memorial Day. So much of our local history is entombed there and maintaining it for future generations is of paramount importance.

It was nearly nine years ago that my friend and fellow firefighter Bruce Setzer was laid to rest on the hillside. He actually reserved his gravesite strategically where his spirit could still overlook the fire station where he dedicated so many years of service. I remember the day of his funeral. A bagpiper stood atop the stairs above Route 6 and played Amazing Grace in his honor. It is a cherished memory for all of us who were in attendance that day, and a fitting tribute to one of Coudersport’s finest.

Bruce is certainly not alone on that hillside. He is joined many of the first settlers who made Coudersport their home in the early 1800s. There are local political figures, doctors, and judges buried throughout the property as well as simple common folks. I am sure just about every person who reads my stories knows someone there.

Because the Eulalia Cemetery is non-denominational, people of all religious beliefs are buried within its borders. Upkeep of the property is quite an undertaking as the slope of the hill side presents many challenges. Aside from mowing the grass, trees and bushes have to be trimmed, stumps have to be removed and the access road has to be maintained just to name a few.

Moneys have been used to support many improvements including a mapping and section identification schematic that helps visitors to navigate and find their loved ones grave sites easier. Maps and information are available for visitors as well.

The board of directors for the cemetery is comprised of very dedicated townspeople. Some of them, like Secretary Donna Lehman, have been a part of the group for decades. Other board members include Steve Erway (president), Andy Dubots, Ilene Altenhein, Gary Gunzburger, Craig Taubert, Wick Furman and Dale Anderson.

Over recent years, many of those board members have voluntarily dug into their own pockets to help cover the financial needs. Maintenance person, Paul Keller, even took a reduction in pay to help stretch the meager account balance.

The Endeavor reports that an ambitious campaign has been launched in hopes of generating $500,000, which could help to stabilize the balance sheet and provide ongoing revenue through investment interest.

Today I am dedicating my progress to the Eulalia Cemetery and its board of directors. I hope they are able to realize their goals and continue their vital operation.
