Rosemarie Elizabeth “Rosie” Meiers

Rosemarie Elizabeth “Rosie” Meiers, 91, passed away on Tuesday (July 25, 2017), at the Pines Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center, in Olean N.Y.

Born September 7, 1925, in Dade City, Fla., she was a daughter of Joseph and Josephine Neidhart Fuchs. On June 7, 1947, in the Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church, in Portville, N.Y., she married James R. Meiers, who passed away on November 19, 2008. 

She and her husband had resided in Olean, Allegany, N.Y., and Portville, and retired in Eldred, spending their winters in Florida.

She graduated from Fulton High School, in Fulton, N.Y., in 1942, and later graduated from the Mercy Hospital School of Nursing in Buffalo, N.Y., in 1946 as a registered nurse.

She had been employed as a registered nurse at the Olean General Hospital and later at St. Bonaventure University in the infirmary. She then worked for many years in pediatrics at St. Francis Hospital in Olean.

She enjoyed bowling and had bowled on women’s leagues at the Bowlean Lanes in Olean and had participated in tournaments across New York state.

An open letter to the Board of Directors serving the Eldred WWII museum

For those of you who know me, thank you for taking the time to read my letter. For those of you that don't, my name is Brandi King Coscia. I was born and raised in this quaint little town. I ask that ALL of you read my words with an open mind and thoughtful consideration. Although I do not know all the members serving on the Board, I do know quite a few of you. You are all well-rounded, successful individuals and for the most part, well-respected in our community.

A recent job post seeking a Director for the Eldred WWII museum has caused many eyebrows to be raised, followed by an outpouring of support for your current director, Mr. Steve Appleby. As the job posting made its way around social media, a Board member graciously enlightened us all stating that Mr. Appleby was still employed by the WWII museum and they were simply realigning positions.

Working in Human Resouces for a large majority of my life, "realigning positions" is a polite way of saying you no longer have this position, period! And for that reason, and that reason alone, is why I am writing to you. I am asking you to reconsider filling the position of Director with anyone other than Steve Appleby.

As you know, Steve has a lengthy history in the military. As a Green Beret, he saw and experienced first hand, the many sorrows that a soldier encounters. 20+ years serving our country and continues to this day serving our community by running the WWII museum. He has a brilliant mind and a passion to educate others about WWII that I have only ever seen in one other individual, Mr. Robert Longnecker. Anyone who had the honor of having Mr. Longnecker knows the passion he exhibited. When listening to Steve on tours of the museum, speaking to children about the military and conducting interviews with VETS, that same burning passion unfolds before you. As he speaks, you are transported to a battlefield amongst your comrades feeling both excitement and fear. You weep as he tells stories and shows memorabilia in the Holocaust room. Aside from his extensive knowledge of WWII, he possesses the ability to communicate effectively with anyone. He is dedicated, timely, responsible and efficient. I am not sure what more you could ask for in a Director. The icing on the cake is that everyone locally knows Steve. They see him every single day walking with his beloved Clyde. Every person, young, old, rich or poor is greeted with the same smile and wave as he travels Main Street. Job opportunities are less than scare in our town of 800 or so people. Why would you even consider removing an individual who has put his blood sweat and tears into this place for the past 9 or so years?

I understand that the grant was lost to fund the museum many years ago. I understand you are looking for someone that can write grants and promote the museum. It appears you need a knowledgable Executive Assistant to work along side Steve and with the Board that possesses that particular skill set. Why would taking away Mr. Appleby's current status need to be touched? When hired, those were not the qualifications for his position. It is understood that you need help and are seeking an individual to assist but the path that you are taking to find that individual, all the while displacing the best thing that has ever happened to the museum, is quite disturbing. Furthermore, stating Steve is still employed and allowing others to believe you are not taking his position away is an act of betrayal. Again, this is not an attack on any of you personally, it is a request to rethink your mission.

Steve's life has been dedicated to serving OUR country. His children are following in his footsteps. I salute you all and am honored to know and feel the love you have for this great country. Working as the director of the museum has been a life long goal and dream job for Steve. He is able to continue to educate and embody so many individuals from all over the country in that museum.
He is the reason individuals come back and visit multiple times. A museum alone can be a very boring place but accompanied by a passionate captain, it is fascinating. My fear is that some of you would rather see the doors close than to continue operating. When is the last time one of you were present for Steve's monthly presentations? When is the last time you joined him for a tour, or sat with him during an emotional interview with one of our VETS? Eldred has finally found a place on the map because of this museum. To close its doors and walk away would be devastating. I certainly hope the heresay is inaccurate and that our museum will continue to invite those near and far with welcoming arms.

As I close this letter, I want you to understand how very difficult it was for so many to see the decision of this Board to realign positions. I had to refrain from addressing you for several days to avoid embarrassing myself, my family and more importantly Steve and his family as I was livid. My choice of words were not well thought out and were quite ignorant. I wasn't raised that way and knew I had to wait in order to maintain control. I also wasn't raised to stand by and let bad things happen to good people and to proudly defend them and support them in any way shape or form. That is exactly what I am doing. I ask that you reconsider your decision to remove Steve as the Eldred WWII Director. I ask that you listen to the people of our town. I ask that you step down as a Board member if you are not currently, intimately involved with the museum and I ask that before you move forward with assigning a new Director, you spend some time with Steve in that museum, listen as he speaks to today's youth about the military, hold the hand of a VET with Steve as he or she tells their story.

Thank you for your service Mr. Steve Appleby.

Best Regards,
Brandi M Coscia
Eldred, PA

West Main Street Bridge Replacement In Roulette Start Delayed Until August 14th

Bridge was rebuilt in 2010 in a half million dollar project that took all summer.

Update: Construction to Begin in mid-August for West Main Street (Route 4026) bridge in Roulette Township

The start date had previously been announced for week of August 1.

Clearfield, PA – Construction for a state-owned bridge on West Main Street in Roulette Township is expected to begin in mid-August as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. The start date had previously been announced for week of August 1. Replacement of this bridge will allow PennDOT to remove it from Potter County’s structurally deficient bridge list.

The 68-foot bridge spans Fishing Creek near the village of Roulette. It dates from 1918 and carries an average of 360 vehicles each day.

Construction is expected to begin the week of August 14 and be complete in October. During construction, drivers will be directed to follow a detour along Main Street (Township Road 404), US Route 6, and Fishing Creek Extension (Township Road 406).

In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change.

This bridge is referred to as JV-88 and is one out of the 558 bridges being replaced under the Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. JV references the joint-venture partnership between Walsh/Granite, which is leading construction for the entire project.

The Rapid Bridge Replacement Project is a public-private partnership (P3) between PennDOT and Plenary Walsh Keystone Partners (PWKP), under which PWKP will finance, design, replace, and maintain the bridges for 25 years. The P3 approach will allow PennDOT to replace the bridges more quickly while achieving significant savings and minimizing impacts on motorists.
