Christmas House volunteers are making plans for their Open House.

On Thursday, November 15, they will welcome the public to their new location in the basement of First Presbyterian Church at 402 N. Main Street in Coudersport.

“Our annual open house has been a tradition since Christmas House was founded by Alyce Reese. She looked forward each year to welcoming visitors and supporters to share in the holiday spirit,” says Charlene Smith, who has taken on many of the responsibilities Alyce shouldered over the years.

“We're excited to show folks around our new larger location. We’re serving our famous broccoli-cheese soup, chili, sandwiches and desserts from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. All are welcome to stop in to learn more about the Christmas House mission. Santa Claus will be on hand from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. to greet children. Don’t forget to bring a camera!” Smith says.

Through the generosity of many donors, Christmas House provides Christmas gifts free of charge to Potter County children in need. Referrals are made by school nurses, social service agencies, churches and individuals. In addition, Christmas House assists people in paying overdue rent and utilities and with emergency food needs all year.

“Without the generous donations each year, we would not be able to brighten the holidays for families who depend on us. In addition to cash donations, we can always use donations of new, unwrapped toys and this year we have need for gifts for boys of all ages as well as infants.”

“All our volunteers are proud to continue to carry on the legacies of the many who have given their time and resources over the years,” says Smith.

The new location is at the corner of Fourth and Main Streets in Coudersport. Parking is available on Fourth Street and signs direct people around the side of the building. Access to the basement is adjacent to the Sitler Memorial Garden on the north side of the church. An elevator is also available for those who have difficulties with stairs.

“We want to remind everyone that the deadline for sign-ups for the Christmas gifts is November 12 to allow volunteers ample time to prepare the gifts or distribution. Please call 274-0825 for additional information,” Smith concludes.

Brothers charged after witness intimidation attempt

DuBois Courier Express

A man being held on more than 1,000 charges related to the alleged rape of a child faces additional witness intimidation charges, while his brother faces counts for drugs found on his person when police tried to question him concerning the matter.

Separate affidavits of probable cause were filed Wednesday against Mark and Michael Chittester.

Mark Chittester faces counts of violating the Controlled Substance, Drug, Device and Cosmetics Act in St. Marys Magisterial District Court 59-3-03. His brother, Michael Chittester, faces charges over attempts to intimidate a girl he is alleged to have raped in Johnsonburg Magisterial District Court 59-3-02.

According to the affidavit filed against Michael Chittester, he called his brother from the Elk County Prison five times on Oct. 17 and talked to him about “getting the victim alone, so that he could try to get the victim to change her story.” Following the conversations, Mark Chittester is alleged to have contacted the victim’s mother on Facebook and by text message about seeing the girl.

Michael Chittester is being held on 200 counts of rape, 400 counts of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, 200 counts of aggravated indecent assault, 200 counts of indecent exposure and a count of corruption of minors after allegedly forcing a girl to perform sexual acts on him over a period of four years.

Chittester, 26, of 3403 Grant Rd., Ridgway, was arraigned on the charges Oct. 10 and a preliminary hearing was held before District Judge James Martin Oct. 31. He is currently being held on $150,000 bail. A formal arraignment in the Court of Common Pleas is set at 3 p.m. Dec. 3 at the Elk County Courthouse. Read more...

The attached is a picture of Dominique Green as Antony in the Pitt-Bradford production of Shakespeare’s ‘Julius Caesar’ playing Nov. 15-18 in the Studio Theater. Photo by Kevin Ewert
The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford Division of Communication and the Arts will present a shortened, modernized and provocatively recast version of William Shakespeare’s tragedy “Julius Caesar.”

The show will take place at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 15, 16 and 17 and at 2 p.m. Nov. 18 in the Studio Theater in Blaisdell Hall. Tickets are $6 for the public and $2 for all students with valid identification. The performance lasts about 75 minutes. Seating is limited.

Dr. Kevin Ewert, professor of theater, directs a cast of eight women and one man. The casting was not originally intended, Ewert said, but simply a response to the fact that it was overwhelmingly women who came out for auditions. The lone male in the cast plays the part of Caesar who, spoiler alert unnecessary, is disposed of halfway through.

“We’re not really trying to do anything specific with the casting, but I think it creates a lot of interesting optics and tensions for an audience today,” Ewert said. “Half of ‘Julius Caesar’ is the anticipation of the assassination, and the other half is everything falling apart after the assassination. In this production, it’s women who are the power players, and the plotters, and the ones who rush in to fill the power vacuum.”

“It’s also a pretty awesome opportunity,” Ewert added. “Women almost never get the good fight scenes in classical theatre, but they do this time. It’s their adventure.”

Taken from Roman history, “Julius Caesar” tells the story of Brutus, a Roman senator recruited by fellow politicians to lead the assassination of the increasingly dictatorial Caesar in A.D. 44.

Members of the audience may see all kinds of parallels with modern power struggles. “Shakespeare’s good at asking questions,” Ewert said. “And then our job is to find some theatrical ways to amplify those questions. ‘Julius Caesar’ seems to invite questions about what we need to knock down and then what should go in its place.”

Students in the production are Tamia Robinson, a criminal justice major from Philadelphia; Julian Rowe, an interdisciplinary arts major from Harleysville; Kati Ido, a computer information systems and technology major from Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso; Julie Kephart, a biology major from Philipsburg; MacKenzie Rugar, a criminal justice major from Pittsfield; Naama Paulemont, a chemistry major from Reading; Anna Bajkowsky, an interdisciplinary arts major from Bradford; Dominique Green, a criminal justice major from Pittsburgh; and Jayden Pire, a writing major from Oswayo.
