Pinnacle Foods Inc. Recalls Beef Products Due to Possible Processing Deviation

Pinnacle Foods Inc., a Fort Madison, Iowa establishment, is recalling approximately 32,479 pounds of heat-treated, shelf stable beef products due to a possible processing deviation that may have led to staphylococcal enterotoxin and clostridial toxin contamination.

Veggie Mobile Fund established at CRCF

The Cattaraugus Region Community Foundation has supported the Veggie Mobile program since its early days, and that support will become more permanent with the Veggie Mobile Fund, an endowment recently established at the Foundation.
The Veggie Mobile program began in 2015 to provide healthy food options in the form of fresh, local vegetables and produce to low-income individuals and families in Cattaraugus County who face diet-related health problems such as obesity, heart disease and diabetes at very high rates.

The program, launched as an initiative through the Cattaraugus County Health Department, has had a noticeable impact, according to Athena Godet-Calogeras, the program’s director.

More than 60 percent of individuals receiving deliveries from local farms and dietary education from the Veggie Mobile have reported weight loss.

One woman lost 70 pounds after Veggie Mobile resources and education inspired a dramatic dietary change.

But the need continues for low-income families in Cattaraugus County, Godet-Calogeras expressed.

“There is a continuing need in our county to address the problem of poor nutrition and the health conditions, like diabetes, hypertension, and obesity that result,” she said.

“The Veggie Mobile Fund at CRCF offers us a firm foundation to provide the ongoing support that we need as we continue to search out and serve low-income people today and in the future,” Godet-Calogeras continued.

The fund will also allow the public to support the project with tax-deductible contributions, she said. The fund has already received a $5,000 donation from a supporter.

The “Slow Ride” bike ride on May 6 will also raise funds for the Veggie Mobile project. The event, beginning and ending at JCC Olean Campus, is for everyone, biking enthusiast or not. The registration form is available at

CRCF’s board of directors first supported the program with grants in 2016 and 2017 to ensure that the program could expand its services into more low-income housing facilities in Olean and Salamanca.

“The Community Foundation has been both moral encouragement and a financial vitamin boost for the Veggie Mobile,” said Godet-Calogeras. “The Veggie Mobile works to counter [the county’s poor health conditions] by providing fresh, naturally grown vegetables. We couldn’t do it without funding from the CRCF as well as our other funders.”

“The Cattaraugus Region Community Foundation has been without question one of the biggest supporters of this initiative since its inception,” said Dr. Kevin Watkins, Cattaraugus County public health director. “And because of its continued support, the program continues to be a success each year.”

With the continued support of CRCF and sustainable, consistent funding made possible by the Veggie Mobile Fund, Godet-Calogeras said that the program can pursue new goals

“We would like to reach out to more remote, but needy, areas in our county,” she said. “That would be greatly facilitated with a real, fully equipped Veggie Van that could be driven to those areas with produce and the possibility of demonstrations, etc.”

This partnership with the Veggie Mobile fulfills the Foundation’s mission and desire to respond to the health issues impacting Cattaraugus County, said CRCF Executive Director Karen Niemic Buchheit.

“This fund will help ensure that the Veggie Mobile program and its important services are here to stay,” said Buchheit. “Cattaraugus County is ranked among the very worst in overall state health rankings, and one of the main factors is accessibility and lack of resources.

“The Veggie Mobile is responsive to that and actively engaged in closing the accessibility gap for the underprivileged, elderly and handicapped,” she continued. “Our organization wants to be a player in facilitating that change, and working with the Veggie Mobile is another step in that.”

Donations can be made to the Veggie Mobile Fund at CRCF, 301 North Union St., Suite 203, or online at

Established in 1994, the Cattaraugus Region Community Foundation is growing good by connecting donors to the causes they care about most in the region. Grants from the foundation support many areas, including education, scholarships, health care, the arts, community development, human service, and youth development. To learn more, call (716) 301-CRCF (2723), email, or visit online at CRCF is also on Facebook ( and Twitter (@CattFoundation).

A. Brad Schwartz to Attend Eliot Ness Fest!

We’re pleased to have confirmation that writer A. Brad Schwartz will be a busy participant in the in-augural “Eliot Ness Fest: Touched by the Untouch-able.” He’ll be joined by Rebecca McFarland, Cleveland historian, in presenting a film feature, “The 14th Victim,” at the Coudersport Theatre on Friday night of the festival. 

The film details Eliot Ness’s role in the desperate search for a serial killer who claimed more than a dozen victims in Cleveland. The story has many twists and turns. 

Then, on Sunday afternoon, Brad will be joined on a panel by Scott Leeson Sroka, Assistant U.S. Attorney from Washington. D.C., and grandson of a real “Untouchable,” Joe Leeson; and Paul W. Heimel, local writer and author of the upcoming book, “Behind the Badge: The Untold Story of Eliot Ness.” They’ll talk about the life and career of Eliot Ness and introduce you to people who knew him (and they’re promising a surprise guest whose identity remains a secret). 

Brad has been busy preparing for the release of the much-awaited book, “Scarface and the Untouchable: Al Capone, Eliot Ness, and the Battle for Chicago,” which he co-wrote with Max Allan Collins. He’ll have a lot to share!

Celebrating Ness on his Birthday
Eliot Ness would have celebrated his 115th birthday on April 19th. Ness was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1903, the young-est of six children, to Peter Ness and Emma (King) Ness, both Norwegian immigrants.

Our gift to Eliot is a festival that celebrates the man, not the myth, and a life dedicated to effective and honest law enforce-ment, public safety and public service.

Eliot Ness Fest: Touched by the Untouchable will be held in Downtown Coudersport July 20-22, 2018. Like us on Facebook: Our website is under construc-tion, check back for updates:


We also celebrated Eliot’s birthday, a day late, at our Committee Meeting today.  The cake was wonderful!  (Pictured from left to right: Commissioner Paul W. Heimel (seated), Curt Weinhold, Jennifer Rossman (seated), Paul Herzig).

Marlin Dale “Mud” Moore, 70, a lifelong resident of Coudersport, PA

Marlin D. “Mud” Moore
“beloved husband, father and grandfather”

COUDERSPORT, Pa.---Marlin Dale “Mud” Moore, 70, a lifelong resident of Coudersport, passed away in his home surrounded by his loving family on Friday, April 27, 2018, after a lengthy illness.

Born on June 27, 1947 in Port Allegany, he was a son of Howard E. and Dorothy M. Kelly Moore. On July 28, 2017 in Sinnemahoning, he married June M. Hurler, who survives.

Mud grew up in Sweden Valley and attended a two-room country school through the sixth grade. He was a graduate of Coudersport High School, Class of 1966, where he was a member of the football team. While in high school, Mud worked part time in several gas stations at the same time.

He began working in Rochester, N.Y. for a few years after graduation and then returned to Coudersport working at the former Market Basket in Wellsville, N.Y. as an assistant manager. He then was employed at Worthington Corporation in Wellsville until 1972. He then was employed at the former Pure Carbon Company in Coudersport and later was employed by the Potter County Sheriff’s Department where he was the first Potter County State Certified Corrections officer. 

In 1987, he was appointed Coudersport Borough Manager, a position that he held until retiring in 2013. During the 27 years as manager, Marlin completed many large projects, such as the new water and sewer system and building a new Borough Maintenance facility which when finished was paid for completely. 

He worked hard for many grants to help pay for the projects. Another of his projects was the rebuilding of the Fourth Street Bridge. On Monday, April 23, 2018, Mud was honored with the dedication of the Fourth Street Bridge in his name. At the time of his retirement, the Borough had no debt other than the remaining water and sewer debts. He again then worked for the Potter County Sheriff’s Department from 2014 until July of 2017, retiring due to illness.

Mud was a member of St. Eulalia Catholic Church in Coudersport, a member of Coudersport Knights of Columbus Council 1355, a life member of the Sons of the American Legion Post 192 in Coudersport, a member of the Costello Sportsman’s Club, a life member of the Coudersport Volunteer Fire Department and a life member of the Coudersport Volunteer Ambulance Association. 

He was a board member of the Northern Tier Children’s Home for eight years and was a former member of the Coudersport Borough Council where he served as a trustee for the State Borough’s Association and had served as council vice president for one year and had served as president in 1986. He enjoyed playing golf and was an avid hunter. He very much enjoyed his participation over the years in the Potter Players where he excelled as a soloist. 

Surviving besides his wife are a son, Michael E. (Kathy Orth) Moore of Woodland Park, Colorado; two daughters, Michelle M. (Trevor) Leathers of Austin, Texas and Larae M. (Chad Wilcher) Cornish of Coudersport; nine grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; two brothers, Neil R. (Darla) Moore of Sebastian, Florida and H. Mark (Chris) Moore of Coudersport; a sister, A. Faye (Frederick “Wick”) Furman of Coudersport; and several nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents, Mud was predeceased by two brothers, Donald Lynn Moore and Gary J. Moore.

Friends may call from 10am to 1pm on Monday, April 30, 2018 in the gathering space of St. Eulalia Catholic Church, Coudersport, where a Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 1pm with the Rev. James Campbell, pastor, as celebrant. Burial will be in St. Eulalia Catholic Cemetery, Coudersport.

Members of the Coudersport Volunteer Fire Department and Volunteer Ambulance Association will pay their respects on Monday at the church.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Cole Memorial Home Health and Hospice, 102-108 South Main Street, Coudersport, PA 16915; to the Patterson Cancer Center, 1001 East Second Street, Coudersport, PA 16915; or to the Coudersport Volunteer Fire Department, 171 Port Allegany Road, Coudersport, PA 16915.

Mud’s family has entrusted his care to Kevin J. Dusenbury, funeral director/owner of the Virgil L. Howard Funeral Home, Shinglehouse.

God's Country Chapter of Trout Unlimited 2018 Project Healing Waters Event

Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, initiated and conducted by members of the Federation of Fly Fishers and Trout Unlimited, serves military personnel who have been wounded, injured, or disabled to aid their physical and emotional recovery by introducing or rebuilding the skills of fly fishing and fly tying and by using and enjoying these skills on fishing outings and as lifelong recreation. While initially focusing on the military personnel in the Washington, DC area, the Project has expanded nationwide and is offering its services and program to active military personnel and veterans in the Department of Defense and Department of Veterans Affairs hospitals throughout the country. The Project's program provides basic fly fishing, fly casting and fly tying classes and clinics for the wounded and injured personnel ranging from beginners to those with prior fly fishing and tying experience who are adapting their skills to their new abilities. All activities and services are provided to the participants at no cost. Fly fishing and tying equipment and materials are provided to the participants, including equipment that accommodates their special needs.

The God's Country Chapter of Trout Unlimited will host its eleventh nationally recognized Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing event, in cooperation with the Big Moore's Run Fish and Game Preserve, Tuesday May 22 through Friday May 25. We are proud to dedicate our 2018 event to honor all the Heroes, 1st Responders, and Victims of the 9/11 Tragedy. We are working with the local American Legions and VFWs to invite all local veterans to participate in our disabled veteran guests’ 40 mile motorcycle escort/parade through Potter County. All of our guests receive treatment at New York and Penna. VA Hospitals and sign up for our event through their respective PHWFF programs. While our chapter has enough volunteer members to provide the instruction, equipment and guide services for our 15 disabled veteran guests, we are soliciting donations to offset the cost of food, lodging, fly tying tools and materials. 

A quote from a previous guest best explains what his visit meant:

“What an absolutely wonderful trip. I didn't realize that I was going to God's country with all the special angels to take care of me when I originally said yes to attending. God bless each and every one of you for all the friendship, love, and support you leant; words cannot express how much enjoyment you have given me!

Please join in the enthusiasm we feel and help provide a unique outdoor and healing experience for our wounded war veterans in the peaceful setting of God's Country. If you consider this event worthy of your support, please forward your tax deductible contribution to the God's Country Chapter of Trout Unlimited – Project Healing Waters, Box 702, Coudersport, Pa. 16915. Thank you in advance for your consideration and continued support.
