You can now catch Lyft in more than 40 states

Click Lascashire
Uber and Lyft officials ranked their most requested destinations, providing a glimpse into how the services are being used in Nassau and Suffolk counties.

The ride-sharing service said in a blog post Thursday that its reach now stretches to 40 U.S. states, and claims the largest coverage of any similar service in the country. That means Lyft is available anywhere in Maryland, as opposed to specific markets.

Lyft announced Thursday that service areas in Pennsylvania now cover the entire state, meaning you should be able to get a ride even if you're stuck in the mountains of Jim Thorpe (population: 4,607) or in a far away cabin along the state line somewhere in "God's Country" Potter County.

It's not clear how much business Lyft and Uber have received since the law went into effect. Until now, using a smartphone to summon a ride was reserved mainly for larger metropolitan areas with more potential riders. Read more...

Lock Haven driver charged with assault, DUI in December crash that seriously injured Galeton woman

by Lana Muthler
Lock Haven Express

LOCK HAVEN — A Lock Haven man has been charged with aggravated assault while driving under the influence, in connection with a violent two-vehicle crash that seriously injured the driver of the other vehicle.

Donald Wayne Bowman, 44, of 105 Gobblers Knob Lane, was arrested yesterday by state police at Lamar.

The arrest came more than eight months after the crash on Dec. 23, 2016, on Route 664, the Coudersport Pike, just below the Caldwell church.

Bowman was the driver of a pickup truck heading north that traveled into the southbound lane and hit the front passenger side of a Toyota Camry, occupied by two adults and one child, police said.

Bowman’s blood-alcohol content was .161 percent, police said.

The driver of the Camry, Brenda W. Yonkin, 50, of Galeton and her passenger, Megan Byrnes, 22, of Lock Haven were trapped in the car for about an hour. They were transported to Geisinger Medical Center, Danville, where Yonkin remained in critical condition for some time with a partially severed right hand, crushed left ankle and broken ribs, police said.

A 4-year-old toddler in Yonkin’s car suffered only minor injuries, thanks to being in a child safety seat, police said.

Police said evidence at the scene of the accident indicate Bowman was completely in the oncoming lane of travel and is at fault for the crash. Read more...

PFBC to Sponsor ‘Fall into Fishing’ Kayak Giveaway

The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) has partnered with Bass Pro Shops in Harrisburg, Pa., to sponsor a unique fishing kayak giveaway during the fall months when many anglers are getting ready for the superb fishing that is about to occur in many Commonwealth waterways.

The grand prizes in this unique giveaway are two Ascend FS10 Sit-in Angler Kayaks. Bass Pro Shops is donating the prizes and expects to make two anglers very happy and well-equipped to pursue a variety of species in the coming year.

The public can enter this giveaway by visiting from Sept. 2 through Nov. 27, or by entering in person at the PFBC booth at Penn State University and University of Pittsburgh home football games this year.

“This is an opportunity for us to invite people to come and visit us at these two football stadiums, which annually draws hundreds of thousands of fans, and is a signature series of events in Pennsylvania,” said Steve Kralik, PFBC Director of Outreach, Education and Marketing. “It also gives us a chance to speak with people and promote the good fishing and boating opportunities available during fall months in the Commonwealth.

“We particularly want to thank Bass Pro Shops for donating the prize,” he added. “Two lucky individuals are going to be well positioned for all sorts of fishing next year.”

PFBC staff will be set up in Penn State Football’s Fan Festival outside Beaver Stadium in University Park during all seven Penn State home football games this fall, and at six selected University of Pittsburgh home football games outside Heinze Field in Pittsburgh.

PFBC staff plan to be at each game at least four hours in advance of the game’s kickoff.

Penn State’s home games include:

Akron - September 2
Pitt - September 9
Georgia State - September 16
Indiana – September 30
Michigan - October 21
Rutgers - November 11
Nebraska - November 18

The six University of Pittsburgh home games include:

Oklahoma State - September 16
Rice - September 30
NC State - October 14
Virginia - October 28
North Carolina - November 9
Miami - November 24

“We are incredibly excited and honored to partner with the Fish and Boat Commission in this giveaway,” said Justin Brisson, General Manager at Bass Pro Shops in Harrisburg. “We all have a great affinity for the outdoors and it is our duty to share this with as many folks as possible, and these prizes will do just that, for two lucky winners.

“We hope that the winners will be able to enjoy the beautiful waterways and incredible fishery the Commonwealth has to offer for many years to come, thanks in large part to the folks at the Fish and Boat Commission and their work to help protect our natural resources,” he added.

The winner will be notified after December 12. A date, time and location for the winners to pick up their kayak will be determined in the weeks after the winner is notified. No purchase is required and only one entry per qualifying adult will be accepted.

The PFBC plans to have fishing licenses and launch permits available for sale, and will have promotional materials to hand out and staff on site to answer questions from the public.

"Inspired Again" Exhibit to Open at the Gmeiner Wednesday, Sept. 6, 2017

Painting by Michelle Lockwood
This painting by Michelle Lockwood was inspired by the poem "Discontent" written by Stephanie Essman. The poem begins, "I doubt you ever saw it coming." "The topic of this poem could have been interpreted in many different ways," Lockwood said. "I felt the poem represented America's opioid crisis." At the top of the painting are pill bottles and heroin syringes encased in a golden glowing light that draw people to them. In the foreground are silhouettes of people either impacted by this crisis or trying to defeat it or both. 

"Inspired Again" is the name of a new exhibit that will be on display in the Atrium Gallery at the Gmeiner Art & Cultural Center, 134 Main Street in Wellsboro beginning Wednesday, Sept. 6.

Included will be poems written by poets and beside each poem, a painting, photograph, mixed media piece, ceramic art or a video by an artist inspired by that poem.

Martha Campbell is the exhibit curator. Her concept for the display was the result of a conversation she had with Michael Detweiler, a poet from Mansfield who simply didn't have time to work on his art because of his day job. "I found myself thinking about my own difficulties in finding time to make art," said Campbell who is an assistant professor in Mansfield University's Art Department.

At first, she thought about creating art based on 10 of Detweiler’s poems. As she began talking about the idea to other people she found them to be artists or writers whose day jobs and the stresses of life kept them from creating poems and art. She soon put aside her original concept and identified 21 poets to write poems and paired them with 21 artists to create art to reflect those poems.

Among them were Mansfield University faculty members and alumni as well as individuals she knew in other areas, such as Wellsboro, Pa. and Corning and Hammondsport, New York. One of the artists is from Los Angeles, California and one of the poets is from Texas.

Initially, the exhibit was sponsored in part by the ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes and displayed in a pop-up gallery on Market Street in Corning, New York on Aug. 4.

"This display crosses the spectrum of disciplines and explores a range of human experiences," said Gmeiner Director Anna Wales. "We are grateful for the opportunity to host this exhibit and hope that people will stop in to see it. Collectively, this show is quite stunning."

Expresco Foods Inc. Recalls Chicken Skewer Products Due to Possible Listeria Contamination

Expresco Foods, Inc., a Montréal, Québec establishment, is recalling approximately 20,446 pounds of imported chicken skewer products that may be adulterated with Listeria monocytogenes, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.

The fully cooked chicken skewer items were packaged on August 9 and 15, 2017. The following products are subject to recall: [View Labels (PDF only)]

1.31-lb. packages of “WEST END CUISINE GRILLED MEDITERRANEAN STYLE CHICKEN SKEWERS HAND-MADE WITH CHICKEN BREAST” containing the UPC code 621588314947 with lot codes: 172562, 172640, 172571 and 172704.
1.09-lb. packages of “EXPRESCO GRILLED Garlic & Herb CHICKEN SKEWERS” containing the UPC code 621588315555 with lot codes: 172563, 172668, 172669 and 172670.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “36” inside the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations in Arizona, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan and Texas.

The problem was discovered by the FSIS import inspector during routine inspection of foreign shipments. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.

Consumption of food contaminated with L. monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, a serious infection that primarily affects older adults, persons with weakened immune systems, and pregnant women and their newborns. Less commonly, persons outside these risk groups are affected.

Listeriosis can cause fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance and convulsions sometimes preceded by diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms. An invasive infection spreads beyond the gastrointestinal tract. In pregnant women, the infection can cause miscarriages, stillbirths, premature delivery or life-threatening infection of the newborn. In addition, serious and sometimes fatal infections in older adults and persons with weakened immune systems. Listeriosis is treated with antibiotics. Persons in the higher-risk categories who experience flu-like symptoms within two months after eating contaminated food should seek medical care and tell the health care provider about eating the contaminated food.

FSIS and the company are concerned that some product may be frozen and in consumers' freezers.

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at
