James N. Sewell, 68, of Hillside Ave., Port Allegany, PA

James N. Sewell

James N. Sewell, 68, of Hillside Ave., Port Allegany, PA, died at UPMC Hamot, Erie, on Thursday, May 4, 2017.

Born in St. Mary’s, PA, he was a son of Nelson S. and Hazel Flanagan Sewell.

At a very early age, Jim’s father introduced him to hunting, fishing, survival skills, and the importance of hard work. Things that he continued to enjoy, respect and demonstrate throughout his life. His father also joined scouting with him and he and Hazel were honored to witness Jim become the first Eagle Scout of Troop 560.

Jim graduated from Port Allegany High School, class of 1967, and Penn State University in 1972, earning a degree in Engineering. He worked summers for North Penn Gas Co. and was hired to continue as an Engineer upon graduation. He continued working for North Penn Gas Co. successor; Penn Fuel Gas, PPL and UGI for the next 41 years. 

Very early in his career he worked on a well fire in Tioga county, where he worked with the famous Red Adair. As the Operations Manager of the company’s Northern Tier, he was at one time responsible for the gas operations of 7 counties in Pennsylvania. 

Over the years, Jim also acted as a community servant. He was the company’s representative to the Port Allegany Economic Development Corp. and later served as its president. He also served on Borough Council, drove ambulance, and sat on the Port Allegany Water Authority Board.

Outdoors was probably Jim’s favorite place to be. He loved hunting, fishing, boating, camping, and all outdoor sports. His hobbies and playing cards were always fun and memorable to anyone sharing the experiences with him. He designed and built his own home and went on to become quite the woodworker. His garage and his projects were a close second to the outdoors. But his main love was his family.

On May 21, 1992, Jim met his soul mate. Later in August 24, 2002, in a wedding ceremony in their back yard, he married Karen Durkin, who survives. Jim and Karen had an unparalleled love and respect for one another. They did everything together and to say they were happy is an understatement.

This blended family consisted of Jim’s children, Jason S. Sewell of Boston, NY, and Kelly (Harold) Graves of Port Allegany. Karen’s children are Joshua Przybyla of Pittsburgh, and Jayson and Carrie Przybyla of Roulette. He is also survived by Kerri Sewell, Laura Przybyla and grandchildren Emma Sewell, Olivia and Miles Przybyla, his sister, Marsha (Chuck) Waite, brother-in-law, Thomas Durkin, and his first wife, Jeanie Sewell.

Jim was preceded in death by his parents, his sister, Janice (Rich) Hill, two infant sisters, Bonnie Jean and Arlene Hazel Sewell, and infant brother, Mark Williams Sewell.

Friends will be received from 6-9 p.m. Saturday in the Switzer Funeral Home, Port Allegany, and 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. Sunday, when a funeral service will be held at 2 p.m. with Rev. Garen Smith, pastor of the First Presbyterian Church of Port Allegany, officiating. Burial will be in Portage Township Cemetery, Gardeau.

Memorials can be made to the S.W. Smith Library or Port Area Ambulance Service.

Condolences can be made to:

Gabler Offers Advise on Fulfillment in Work, Life to Penn State DuBois Grads

During his commencement address at Penn State DuBois Friday evening, State Representative Matt Gabler encouraged student to find fulfillment in work, as well as life, in order to reach their full potential as productive citizens.
DuBOIS – State Representative Matt Gabler offered the commencement address at ceremonies held Friday evening in the gymnasium at Penn State DuBois. Baccalaureate and associate degrees were conferred by Chancellor M. Scott McBride. Academic Awards for highest GPA's were presented to Mr. Brendan Keegan for associate degrees, and Ms. Shalane Read for baccalaureate degrees.

"Tonight’s commencement is the opportunity to think about the conclusion of formal academic study and the beginning of a career in the workforce. Your course of study – your mission statement – provides you guidance on setting professional goals and deciding what to try and achieve in your career. But it is also so much more than that. Now, you have the opportunity to think not only about your professional mission statement, but your life’s mission statement," Gabler told graduates. He stressed the importance of hard work, but also that fulfillment comes in other ways. He shared his personal story of finding great satisfaction in his work, but finding true fulfillment and further motivation for hard work outside of the office.

"I had set a goal in 2008 when I started my campaign for state representative. When I was elected, I set the goal to do a good job, serve the community, and advocate for the ideas I felt were best for this area," Gabler said. "In so many ways, that job is so fulfilling and so rewarding to me. But, in a vacuum, it’s still not enough. A fulfilling work day with nothing else, isn’t quite fulfilling. Life is more than a job. I’m so blessed and thankful that I was fortunate enough to meet the person who could show me that – my wife Lisa who, seven months ago brought our little girl Caroline into the world. She has shown me that I can be dedicated and focused on my job, but there is a bigger picture beyond the career. That it’s for a bigger purpose."

Gabler urged students to strive for fulfillment in work and life to assure their greatest success, and to reach their full potential.

"What sort of husband or wife; what sort of mother or father do you want to be? These questions are all just as important, or, I would argue – these questions are more important than questions about your career goals. As you start your careers with the tools you’ve acquired, think about how you can put those tools to work to better your community beyond the workplace," Gabler said. "We need to ask these questions: what will our fire department look like in 10 years? How about in 20 years? Who will step up and lead our township boards and our city and borough councils? Who will coach our Little League teams? Who will get involved in the Rotary Club or the Lions Club? Your job will provide you the resources to live your life, but your family and your volunteerism will give it meaning.

"Many of you are entering uncharted territory. Commencements often come with change. Change is difficult; changing jobs, starting a new career, maybe even moving to a new home. Please, take the opportunity as soon as possible to get involved. You will find that what you put into something will determine what you get out of it. You have the tools for success. But, nothing ever got fixed by leaving the tools in the box. Please, take them out and use them, and use them often."

First elected in 2008, Gabler is currently serving his fifth term as the representative in the 75th Legislative District in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. For the 2017-18 session, he is a member of the following four committees: Environmental Resources and Energy, Finance, Rules, and State Government. He has also been appointed to serve as deputy chairman of the House Republican Policy Committee.

Gabler was born and raised in DuBois and is a lifelong resident of Pennsylvania. He graduated as valedictorian from DuBois Central Catholic High School, and served as student council president. He attended Bucknell University in Lewisburg on a four-year Army R.O.T.C. scholarship, and earned his bachelor of arts degree in political science in 2006 with a minor in physics.

Upon graduation, Gabler's commitment to serving others continued through his commissioning as a 2nd Lt. in the U.S. Army Reserve. He served as commander of the Headquarters and Headquarters Detachment, 424th Multifunctional Medical Battalion before becoming a medical logistics officer with the Headquarters, 28th Infantry Division, Pennsylvania Army National Guard. He currently holds the rank of captain.

Gabler is a former research analyst in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. His decision to run for office came from a desire to effect real change as an elected leader. He, his wife, Lisa, and daughter, Caroline, reside in Clearfield County. He received the Penn State DuBois Alumni Society's Distinguished Ambassador Award in 2015 for his support of the campus and its mission.

The 75th District consists of all of Elk County, as well as, in Clearfield County, the City of DuBois; the townships of Bloom, Bradford, Brady, Covington, Girard, Goshen, Graham, Huston, Karthaus, Lawrence (the Plymptonville precinct), Pine, Sandy and Union; and the borough of Falls Creek.

MARILYN HORNE TALKS ABOUT GROWING UP IN BRADFORD

BRADFORD, Pa. -- Like any grandmother, Marilyn Horne wants to show her grandchildren the place where she grew up.

That home on Avenue B perched above the Tunungwant Creek has disappeared since her World War II childhood in Bradford.

Little Marilyn would traipse behind her mother, Berneice Horne, who was the assessor in the Fifth Ward, as she walked from house to house performing assessments. The neighborhood was largely Italian and “everywhere my mother went, they wanted to feed her,” Marilyn Horne recalled.

“Little did I know that I would spend so much time in Italy,” she said. “I’d love to go back (in time) because I can speak Italian now.”

She spent that time in Italy, of course, on some of the most famous stages in the world – at Teatro La Fenice in Venice, La Scala in Milan and Teatro di San Carlo in Naples – as one of the most renowned opera singers of the 1960s, ’70s, ’80s and ’90s.

On Saturday, Horne will bring all of her worlds together when her family, friends, and people from her hometown meet in Bradford at the dedication and opening of the Marilyn Horne Museum and Exhibit Center in Marilyn Horne Hall.

The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford developed the museum to share items from Horne’s archives, which she bequeathed to the university.

The dedication will take place at 2 p.m. in Veterans Square, where Horne gave some of her first performances, singing with her sister, Gloria, at rallies to support FDR and the sale of war bonds.

She will be able to show her daughter, grandchildren, younger brother (who was born after her family moved to California), niece and nephew Avenue B, from which she watched the Tuna Creek spill its banks and flood downtown during 1945, and Veterans Square. She can also show them the Church of the Ascension, where she and Gloria sang in the children’s choir, and the graves of her parents and grandparents.

Horne’s father, Bentz Horne, was a small-town politician. “He really loved living in California, but in Bradford, he knew everybody in town,” she said.

In her 1983 autobiography, “My Life,” it is clear that Horne’s father, who died when she was 22, remains ever-present in her life. He loved his small town, and she nurtures her memories of seeing him in his element – singing with community choirs, selling war bonds and just generally enjoying the company of the many people who knew him.

Marilyn Horne was born in 1934 in Bradford at the height of the Depression. In addition to her older sister, Gloria, she had an older brother, Dick. During the depression years, her family ran a small grocery store out of its living room on Elm Street. “My mother bought and sold day-old bread,” she recalled. “Later she went on to be a very successful business woman. Dad made five dollars a Sunday as a soloist in church.”

Most of her memories of Bradford concern the war years.

“I grew up right smack dab with World War II. That has a lot of memories that are indelible in my mind,” she said. “The years of the war were very exciting. Some things were going on all of the time.” She remembered helping with scrap drives and saving up to buy war bonds by pasting 10-cent stamps into books. A full book bought a bond.

She took early voice lessons with several Bradford teachers, including Edna Luce, who she said taught her the basis of breath support that she used her entire career.

In her early days performing patriotic tunes with the Citizens Band, Horne learned to love an audience. Her first recital was held at Kane High School, shortly before her family moved to Long Beach, Calif., when she was 11. Bentz Horne, a semi-professional singer, had already realized that his daughter’s voice would require proper training, nurturing and exposure not available in his hometown.

But here is a story for all children who become discouraged with their lack of success in their chosen passion. Marilyn “Jackie” Horne -- future toast of two continents – did not make her grade-school glee club. The teacher said she sang too loudly. However, she did appear in skits and plays and had the chance to belt out “Up in Santa Land” while playing the part of Jolly Molly in her fifth-grade Christmas show.

“I have very good memories of my childhood,” she said.

She is sure to have good memories of this weekend as well.

Of the museum’s creation, she said, “It’s a very warm feeling, and I have to thank one man who is behind all of this, and that’s Livingston (Alexander, Pitt-Bradford’s president). He’s worked very hard for this whole situation.”

Horne initially renewed her ties to her hometown through the efforts of her foundation to bring two recitals a year of young singers to Bradford at the expense of the Foundation. A new friend, Jim Guelfi, and the Bradford Creative and Performing Arts Center were very supportive. Separately, she performed with BCPAC in 2000 at Bradford Area High School.

Shortly thereafter, she served as an honorary chairwoman to help Pitt-Bradford raise money for the construction of Blaisdell Hall, which is home to the arts at Pitt-Bradford. When Pitt-Bradford honored her for her work on that campaign, she decided to give her archives to the university, despite being wooed by the Library of Congress.

“I was at a lunch at the Alexanders with Bradford leaders. I was looking around and decided that my archives should come to Bradford,” she said. “It just felt right. This has all worked out way beyond what I would have thought of.”

Genesee Township needs 2 new Supervisors

Scot Miller and Scott Luce have never been elected. They were appointed after receiving phone calls from the previous board of supervisors asking them to be the new supervisors. The public had no say. No other candidate was considered?

Why was no other candidate considered? All we know is that after serious questions were raised about the propriety of the amounts charged for Solid Waste and the amounts taken from Solid Waste to use in the general fund, that the previous supervisors appointed Miller and Luce. Miller and Luce are aware of the overcharge for the services to the tune of $27,000.00 per year and of the removal of money from this special fund to the general fund. Miller and Luce have refused to do anything about it and have instead voted to continue the practices of the prior supervisors. As a matter of fact, according to a survey conducted by Township employees for the months of February and March 2016, less than 25% of the $50.00 assessed property owners use the service.

At the same time, at the candidate forum on March 29 Miller stated that his main objective was to bulldoze down the existing Township Building, replacing it with a nice shiny new one, and to acquire more equipment. Luce raised no objection. These supervisors want to spend more of your money on unnecessary things.

It is time to say no to foolish spending and supervisors who were not elected and are not accountable to anyone. It is time to say no to Miller and to Luce.

Candidates David Furman and Jim Smoker stand as a stark contrast to the past. They want to reduce wasteful spending on manpower and equipment and buildings.
They want real progress, with better road maintenance, surface material and dust control, for our paved and gravel roads. They want to end overcharges for Solid Waste so you can keep more of your money.

Candidates David Furman and Jim Smoker seek election not appointment. They are not beholden to anyone and will be accountable to the voters.

Former Port Allegany Teacher Nominated For PA Teacher Of The Year Award

Elizabeth Behrman and Molly Born
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Linda Voegler Granite
Four Allegheny County teachers are among the 12 nominated for 2018’s Pennsylvania Teacher of the Year award.

The winner will be announced in December in Hershey at the state Department of Education’s annual professional development conference for educators.

“Teachers spend their lives educating, empowering, listening, mentoring, guiding, inspiring, serving, and supporting each of their students,” Gov. Tom Wolf said in a news release announcing the nominees last week. “I applaud each of these educators for their hard work and for earning this important recognition.”

Linda Granite has taught beginning band to fourth- and fifth-graders at Marshall Elementary School in the North Allegheny School District since 2007.

“Her passion for music and children and the profession is the gem among the mere stones,” said Tammy A. Andreyko, the district’s assistant superintendent of curriculum, assessment and professional development. “There is never a moment when I don’t see her thinking about ways to make teaching and learning better for all children.”

Prior to North Allegheny, Ms. Granite, 45, taught at elementary schools in Butler County and Port Allegany, McKean County. At Marshall, her students are often picking up an instrument for the first time.

“It’s a huge responsibility, and a great honor, to give them their first experience. I get to be the one that sees those lightbulb moments.”

She’s committed to giving back, too, she said, by inviting student teachers into her classroom.

“I want to give a young teacher a good experience, time to make their mistakes. ... I think we need to take notice of the young people out there who enjoy working with kids, and we need to encourage them.Read the whole article....

Panthers, Penn State Altoona Set for AMCC Showdown

By Scott Elliott
BRADFORD, Pa. - The fifth-seeded Pitt-Bradford baseball team will square off with fourth-seeded Penn State Altoona in the first round of the AMCC tournament Sunday.

The two teams will play a best-of-three series with the winner advancing to the AMCC Championship round to face top-seeded La Roche next Thursday in Pittsburgh. Sunday’s games were originally scheduled for Saturday but have moved back due to anticipated inclement weather.

It marks the second straight weekend the Panthers will travel to Altoona. The Lions dealt Pitt-Bradford a pair of one-run losses last Saturday to wrap up home-field advantage.

Pitt-Bradford is making its sixth straight appearance in the conference postseason tournament and its 17th overall. This is the third meeting between the two schools in the opening round and first since 2012.

The Panthers carry a little momentum into Sunday’s matchup, after sweeping Medaille Wednesday to secure the final spot in the tournament. Sophomore right-hander Ryan Boyer was the star, tossing eight scoreless innings while striking out a career-high nine in a 5-0 win in game two.

Pitt-Bradford head coach Zach Foster will hand the ball to senior right-handers Ryan Northcott and Justin Beimel. Both pitchers struggled in their first turn against the Lions but hope a second crack will yield better results. Northcott gave up eight runs in 5.1 innings, while Beimel was touched up for five runs. Should the Panthers need a starter for a winner-take-all game three, Boyer will take the hill.

Freshman infielder Tyler Hoops continued his second-half offensive surge Wednesday, collecting two more walks to push his AMCC-leading total to 33. He played a role in three of the Panthers’ five runs in game two and is among the league leaders in runs scored. His .538 on-base percentage ranks in the top 25 nationally in NCAA Division III.

Junior third baseman Dalton Renn and sophomore catcher Austin Parent anchor the middle of the Panther lineup. Renn has driven in 20 runs over the last 11 games, and Parent, who had his 17-game hitting streak snapped Wednesday, hit a team-best .446 with 18 RBIs in conference play.

Penn State Altoona returns to the postseason for the first time since 2014 after enjoying a resurgent 2017 campaign. The Lions’ 18 wins are the most since 2011, and they finished with a winning record in AMCC play for the first time in five years.

Freshmen Hunter Beron and George Stiuso led the Lion offensive attack. Stiuso is hitting .328 with a team-best four home runs and 23 RBIs, and Beron has connected for three homers, stolen nine bases and driven in 24 runs.

Senior pitchers Jared Dailey and Mike Marley got the start against the Panthers last weekend and figure to take the mound once again. Dailey is 6-2 on the season with a 5.79 ERA, and Marley has an ERA of nearly seven in 45-plus innings this year. Freshman Aaron Sharp leads the team in innings pitched (52.2), strikeouts (47) and ERA (4.27).

The Panthers are also looking to end a recent stretch of futility. Pitt-Bradford has been swept the last four years in the first-round of the tournament.

Pitt-Greensburg and Mt. Aloysius meet in the other opening round series. The winner of that matchup will play No. 2 seed Penn State Behrend.

REAL ID – On Monday, May 8, the House State Government Committee, of which I am a member, will consider legislation which would offer a solution to Pennsylvania’s REAL ID problem. You can watch the meeting on my website, www.RepGabler.com, beginning at noon.

In 2005, Congress passed the REAL ID Act of 2005 in an attempt to standardize the issuance of driver’s licenses across the United States. Pennsylvania is one of seven states currently not complying with the act and has until June 6, 2017 to do so. REAL ID has been a controversial law because of concerns that have been expressed regarding individuals’ information and the costs related to compliance.

Senate Bill 133, along with amendments that are to be voted Monday, would create a two-tiered system for issuing driver’s licenses and state photo ID cards in the Commonwealth, an approach patterned after Arizona’s system which has been deemed to be in compliance by the Department of Homeland Security.

Under this approach, Pennsylvania residents would be able to choose to obtain a standard ID/driver’s license or a REAL ID compliant ID. The REAL ID compliant version would be able to be used at federal buildings, military installations and airports, and would require the submission of additional documentation and a fee to cover the related costs, according to what is mandated under the federal REAL ID act.

This bill would be an improvement over current law because it gives Pennsylvania residents the ability to seek a compliant ID for air travel or admission to military installations. Those however who do not wish to use their driver’s license or state ID for these purposes would not be required to deal with the costs or the paperwork involved.
                
         
 
Honoring Those Who Serve Our Country – On Friday, May 12, the Route 879 bridge over Trout Run in Shawville, Clearfield County, will officially be dedicated in honor and memory of Private David Kyle McCracken.

A sign unveiling and dedication ceremony will begin at 1 p.m.
                  
         
 
Holding Lottery Winners Accountable for Debts - Individuals who are delinquent on state taxes or behind on child support payments could find their winnings intercepted under legislation passed by the House.

House Bill 674 would require the Department of Revenue to determine whether taxpayers who win a single prize of more than $2,500 from the Pennsylvania Lottery have any unpaid state taxes. If the taxpayer does have an outstanding state tax liability and all appeal rights have been exhausted, the amount of state tax that is owed will be deducted from the winnings and paid to the Commonwealth. Other obligations, such as court costs, fines and restitution could be deducted as well.

Finally, the bill would require the Department of Revenue to send the winner’s information to the Department of Human Services to determine if he or she is a recipient of public assistance benefits. If the prizewinner does receive benefits, a determination would be made regarding if he or she remains eligible for those benefits.

The bill awaits consideration in the state Senate.
