New York DEC denies permit for Northern Access Pipeline

By Times Herald staff Apr 8, 2017

New York state has denied a permit to National Fuel Gas to build the Northern Access Pipeline, citing concerns about impacts on wetlands, streams, fish and wildlife habitat along the route.

The state Department of Environmental Conservation announced its decision Saturday. A letter dated Friday, April 7, was sent to National Fuel Gas informing the company of the decision, which calls into question the entire $455 million project to build a pipeline from Sergeant Township in southern McKean County, Pa., up into Erie County of New York to transport hydraulically fractured natural gas.

"After an in-depth review of the proposed Northern Access Pipeline project and following three public hearings and the consideration of over 5,700 comments, DEC has denied the permit due to the project's failure to avoid adverse impacts to wetlands, streams, and fish and other wildlife habitat," the DEC said in a statement Saturday. "We are confident that this decision supports our state’s strict water quality standards that all New Yorkers depend on.”Supporters and opponents of the proposed Northern Access Pipeline waited Friday for word from the state Department of Environmental Conservation on the project’s wetlands and air permits.

Friday was the deadline for the DEC to approve or disapprove the permit to cross hundreds of streams, ponds and wetlands over the 96-mile pipeline route in New York state.

A spokeswoman for National Fuel, Karen Merkel, said Saturday that the company would have no comment at this time. She said a news release would be forthcoming on Monday.  Read more...

Bill Pekarski: Day 219, Living life on my terms

Bill Pekarski

Day 219, Living life on my terms.

First things first; my wife told me that I forgot something in my story dedicated to Gerri Miller. You see, back when the Ladies Auxiliary at the Coudersport Fire Hall used to have pancake breakfasts every month we would always go down for breakfast around 11 a.m. Almost every time we showed up, we were joined by Gerri and Jane James at our table.

The two of them were such a pleasure with which to enjoy breakfast and conversation on those mornings. Before then, Beth didn’t even know them, but she started looking forward to seeing them at the hall each month. We talked about all sorts of topics and community issues along with plenty of laughs and smiles. It is just another example of how great of a person Gerri is as well as her late friend Jane. Jane is deeply missed by many of us and I pray that she rests in peace.

It is sad for me to think about Jane sometimes as I knew personally and professionally how much pain she endured on a daily basis. Even though she was suffering from chronic pain, she always wore a smile and spoke happy thoughts. I always remember wishing I could have done something more to help her find relief.

Sometimes, that is just what happens in the Emergency Room. As nurses, we always want to do what we can to help people feel better. In our little community, our patients are very often our friends so we always want to go that extra mile.

There have been several times that I had very good friends who presented to the ER with difficulty breathing, cough, or congestion that upon further examination we would discover that they were having a heart attack. While no one ever wants to hear that diagnosis, it is the greatest feeling in the world when you do all of the right things and save that person’s life.

It may be a few days, a few weeks, or a few months later, but when you see that person again and they take the time to thank you for what you did, it makes you proud to be a nurse.

Emergency Room nurses never get to see patients at their best. Let’s face it, if you are in the ER there is something wrong and all you want is help. Every day, nurses provide care for a multitude of patients with complaints ranging from toothaches to trauma. There have been times when I can remember going from one room where we were doing CPR and desperately trying to resuscitate a patient to a different room where I was removing a tick from a person’s scalp. It is just the nature of the job, and it is something I have missed for the past two years.

I was very upset this week when I read where one of my old workmates at Bradford Regional Medical Center was punched in her face by a patient demanding narcotics to treat her pain. It has become a common occurrence across the country and it has to stop. There is never a reason to strike a person who is working to help you and others; it is inexcusable and I hope the perpetrator is punished to the full extent of the law.

I realize we are not in a city like Los Angeles or Philadelphia, but our rural hospitals face many dangers, especially in the ER. What is there to really stop someone from bringing a gun or other type of weapon into the hospital? None of the local facilities have what most of us would consider adequate security. At least when the police are called, they respond as quickly as they can, but it still takes time. Meanwhile, we have secretaries and technicians working at open desks with absolutely no protection. In many ways, our local hospitals have been extremely lucky.

Still, I can’t wait for the day that I am able to return to working and start paying my good fortune forward. In my heart, I know it is what I am meant to be doing and I will get back there. It is still just going to take a little more time. Until then, I have my writing, my wife, my family, Little League Baseball/Softball, Pirates baseball, music, and my friends to bide my time as I continue to recover.

Today I want to dedicate my progress to all of my fellow nurses out there who are dedicated to helping others as well as Jane James. The work we do really makes a difference, do it as long as you can.

Pool progress and donations

Kalie Cobb
Jim, we wanted to let everyone know our fundraising progress for the Coudersport town pool renovation. To date, 176 donors and businesses from Coudersport, surrounding areas, and 10 other states have given $111,711.00. 

We are excited about our progress, our fundraiser May 13th at the Legion and new pledges of commitment.

Just this week, Kalie Cobb organized (for her senior project) a pool fundraiser through Goodwill Industries in Coudersport. Goodwill, the Coudersport elementary school and high school will except clothing donations. For every pound of clothing donated, Goodwill will give 19 cents to the pool fund. So there is no better time than now to empty your closets. Donations are accepted until April 14th.

Thank you Kalie for your community spirit and help with the pool.

Pecora seeks re-election to Bradford City Council

Tim Pecora
Tim Pecora is seeking the Republican nomination to Bradford City Council in the May primary.

Pecora, who resides at 106 Harding Ave., has been on city council since January 2014. He spent his first two years on council overseeing the parks and public property department. Since January 2016, he has been overseeing the fire department and public safety. The Republican is seeking one of three open seats on city council.

Pecora, who was born and raised in Bradford, said he is running again because he feels he has more to contribute.
“I would like to develop a strong and diverse community leadership that is inclusive, collaborative and connected,” Pecora said, adding he will continue to adopt fiscally responsible budgets that focus on the core functions of government and remove non-essential costs whenever possible.

“I want to continue to search for ways to increase economic development as well as continue to fight blight in the city,” he said.

Part of fighting blight is working with code enforcement and utilizing existing ordinances and laws, Pecora said, adding this includes supporting the Board of Health as it springs into action when properties fall into serious disrepair, which result in demolishing dilapidated properties.
“Bradford has all the ingredients available to be a great success story – warm and friendly residents, strategic location for businesses, affordable cost of living, numerous leisure and recreational opportunities, plentiful natural resources, top-notch higher educational facilities and an educated workforce with a good work ethic,” Pecora said. “I feel that working together, we can make Bradford a go-to destination for business, families and visitors.”

Above all, Pecora loves and wants to see the city thrive and become a showcase the entire area can be proud of.

Since January 2014, Pecora has been employed at Sundahl & Co. Insurance as a commercial account executive. He was previously employed at Control Chief Corp. for 1 ½ years and Burns & Burns Associates of Bradford for eight years. His prior work experience includes positions with insurance companies in Pittsburgh.

Pecora is a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh, where he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in business and economics.

He is a member of the Kiwanis Club, Bradford Lodge #749 F&AM, Tuna Valley Trail Association, McKean County Rifle Club, Bradford Landmark Society, LaStella Lodge, National Rifle Association and St. Bernard Church.

He previously was a member of the board of the Bradford Area Chamber of Commerce from 2002 to 2009 and was president of the board from 2007 to 2008. He was also on the board of directors of the Downtown Bradford Revitalization Corp. for a one-year term in 2009.

​Major Traffic Switch Next Week on I-80 in Montour County

Montoursville, PA – A multi-year, $30 million project continues next week on Interstate 80 in Montour County with a major traffic switch that will shift one eastbound lane across the median to the westbound side of the interstate.

The eastbound traffic will be separated by concrete glare screen from the two westbound traffic lanes. The other eastbound lane will remain on the eastbound side of the Interstate. Traffic will be returned to a normal two lane pattern just past the Columbia County line.

In preparation for the shift, on the night of Sunday, April 9, there will be alternating lane closures in the eastbound lanes from mile 223 to mile 229 so old pavement markings can be removed, new markings painted, temporary barrier installed and signs uncovered.

Weather permitting, the traffic switch will occur Monday morning.
This traffic pattern will remain in place during the reconstruction of the eastbound passing lane and shoulder from the Route 54/Danville Interchange to the Columbia County line. Traffic will still have access to Route 54 from the right travel lane throughout the reconstruction phase.

Reconstruction will begin after the contractor finishes installing barrier on the eastbound side of the interstate between mile 224 and mile 229.

Motorists should be alert and stay in their lane while approaching the traffic switch.

Death to be investigated as homicide

Philip A. Holmes
Reporter  Sun Gazette

Donald Kleese Jr. was murdered in his home, state police and Lycoming County Coroner Charles E. Kiessling Jr. confirmed on Friday.

The 82-year-old man was slain in his residence at 2005 Quaker Hill Road in Eldred Township, police said, but investigators declined to say how he was killed.

A relative found his body about 6:30 a.m. Thursday.

Police also confirmed that Kleese’s 2005 Subaru Outback had been stolen from the house and that it was “later recovered,” but a crime supervisor at the Montoursville barracks declined Friday to say where.

The supervisor said “there was no reason to believe that the public was in danger,” but he evaded questions when asked if a suspect was in custody or being detained. Read more...

Pauline Rowland Sarvis, 94, a resident of the Rouse Suites in Youngsville, PA, and formerly of Sugar Grove, PA

Pauline Sarvis

Pauline Rowland Sarvis, 94, a resident of the Rouse Suites in Youngsville, PA, and formerly of Sugar Grove, PA, died Thursday, April 6, 2017, at the John and Orpha Blair Hospice Residence in Warren, PA.

Pauline was born in the village of Lander, PA, on Easter Sunday morning, April 16, 1922, in the home of her parents, Paul Clark Rowland and Bertha Wenzel Rowland. Growing up in Lander, she was a graduate of Lander High School, Class of 1940 and had attended every yearly alumni reunion since she graduated 76 years ago. In 1941 she graduated from the Hoff Business College in Warren, PA, and then was employed in the office of the Struthers Wells Corporation. In later years she was employed by and retired from the Sugar Grove office of Penn Bank.

On April 20, 1946, she married Harry Sarvis in the Lander Methodist Church, where Rev. Grant Mottern officiated. She and Harry had resided in Sugar Grove since 1948. A member of the Sugar Grove United Methodist Church, Pauline was on the Administrative Council, United Methodist Women, and the Care Team. From 1963 to 1970 she served on the Building Committee for the planning and construction of the Education Building, which was completed and dedicated in 1970.

Pauline had been a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution, Jamestown, NY chapter, since June 1961, and the Kanoagoa Chapter of the Daughters of the American Colonists since 1963. She had held elective offices of both Tax Collector and Auditor in Sugar Grove borough.

Pauline loved to travel and she and Harry had enjoyed many bus trips in their retirement. Her hobbies were photography, “Just one more picture,” visiting lighthouses, and in particular she always looked forward to traveling with her daughter and friends Gladys and Cindy to the Ashtabula County, OH, Covered Bridge Festival in October.

Pauline was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. Her smile lit up a room, and people naturally gravitated to her because they knew she genuinely cared about them. She was loved by many and will be greatly missed.

BRADFORD, Pa. – The popular annual history lecture by Dr. Marvin Thomas, professor of history at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford, will address The Second Boer War between members of the British Empire and the South African Republic and Orange Free State.

The talk will take place at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 11, in Rice Auditorium in Fisher Hall on the campus. It is free and open to the public.

“The public expected it to be over by Christmas,” Thomas said of the war, which began in October of 1899. “It proved to be the longest, costliest, the bloodiest, and most humiliating war that Britain fought between 1815 and 1914.”

Thomas has been teaching European history at Pitt-Bradford since 1969. He was chosen in 1997 as the recipient of the Pitt-Bradford Alumni Association’s Teaching Excellence Award.

Last year, he published “The Saxon Aspect of the Bavarian Allodial Succession 1777-1779: The History of a Legal Dispute,” which deals with the decade before the French Revolution and the last days of absolute monarchical rule in Europe.

PennDOT Lowers Speed Limit on Route 155 in Liberty and Annin Townships

Clearfield, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of
Transportation (PennDOT) has lowered the speed limit on a section of Route 155 in McKean County. The speed limit on Route 155 from the Two Mile Restaurant to just south of Dunbar Crossing Road had been 55 miles per hour. Yesterday, April 6, the speed limit in this area was posted to 45 miles per hour, which extends the section of Route 155 that is posted for 45 miles per hour.

PennDOT made the speed limit change after completing a speed study. Crash history was a factor in making the change.

The new speed limit is legally posted and drivers are reminded that the new, lower speed limit is enforceable. PennDOT reminds motorists to obey posted speed limits and to always buckle up.
