The deadline to keep our air clean is sooner than you thin

Unless we act now, more methane will be pumped into our atmosphere, with dire consequences for our climate.

Early this fall, the Trump administration announced plans to roll back Obama-era protections limiting methane pollution from oil and gas production. Losing these protections would be devastating for our air and environment. We only have until Dec. 17 to submit public comments and speak out against the methane rule rollback.1

Submit your comment to stand up for clean air.

Methane is 86 times more effective at trapping heat than carbon dioxide during its first 20 years in our atmosphere, making methane one of the most powerful global warming pollutants around.2

Approximately one-third of methane pollution is a result of gas and oil refinement.3 Methane seeps into the atmosphere during every stage in the production, processing, transportation and storage of both natural gas and crude oil -- leaving plenty of opportunity for leaks.

By allowing gas and oil companies to inspect plants for methane leaks less frequently, and take even longer to fix what they find, the proposed rollback would allow at least an additional 350,000 metric tons of methane to be released into the air by 2025.4 This would rapidly speed up the already accelerating rate of global warming.

This rollback is one of many this year that would set us back when we need to move forward to a healthier climate. We need to do all that we can to slow global warming, not speed it up.

Tell the Environmental Protection Agency to uphold strong protections against methane pollution.

The public comment period is our opportunity to make our voices heard. We're louder together, and we can't let this opportunity pass by.

Make your voice heard while the comment period is still open.

Thank you for making it all possible,

David Masur

Registration and Auditions for "Aladdin Junior" Winter Theatre Arts Camp in Blossburg are Dec. 14, 17 & 18

Thomas Putnam, artistic director for Hamilton-Gibson Productions based in Wellsboro, has announced registration and audition dates and locations for the "Aladdin Junior" Winter Theater Arts Camp in Blossburg.

"Aladdin Junior" is a stage adaptation of the Disney film. It includes Aladdin, Jasmine, and the Genie of course and all the other characters. It is filled with magic, mayhem, flying carpet rides and songs like "A Whole New World," "Friend Like Me" and the others from the tuneful Academy Award-winning score.

"'Aladdin' was one of our most popular winter theatre arts camps," said Putnam. "The movie and songs are very familiar to many students. There are a variety of characters and a wonderfully large chorus so everyone can be involved. This is a great opportunity for children and youth who love to be on stage and have experience as well as for kids who want to perform but are too shy to take that first step."

The camp is open to any student in grades 3-9 living in Galeton, Wellsboro and Southern Tioga school district communities. Registration and auditions for the Blossburg camp will be at 3:30 p.m. on the following days: Friday, Dec. 14 at the Warehouse Theatre at 3 Central Avenue in Wellsboro; on Monday, Dec. 17 at the Warren L. Miller Elementary School at 1 Dorsett Drive in Mansfield and on Tuesday, Dec. 18 at Blossburg Elementary School at 133 Hannibal Street in Blossburg.

The 10-day camp will be at the Blossburg Elementary School Auditorium on Hannibal Street Wednesday through Saturday, Jan. 2-5 and Monday through Thursday, Jan. 7-10. It will begin after school at 3:45 p.m. and end at 5:30 p.m. on weekdays and on Saturday, Jan. 5 will be from 9 a.m. to noon. Camp times will vary on performance days, Friday and Saturday, Jan. 11 and 12.

The campers will give matinee performances of "Aladdin" for students during school hours on Friday, Jan. 11 and Pay-What-You-Can performances for the public at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 11 and Saturday, Jan. 12. All of the performances will be in the Blossburg Elementary School Auditorium.

On registration and audition days, parents will be asked to sign permission slips to allow their children to participate in the camp and performances. Students who earn roles in the cast will be given the "Aladdin Junior" script and CD to take home and will be expected to memorize their lines and songs by Jan. 2, the first day of camp.

The camp fee includes a camp T-shirt, script, printed materials and instruction in theatre arts. The fee is non-refundable and must be paid when the youth signs up for camp. Scholarships are available to assist youth with the fee. For more information about the auditions, the Blossburg camp and scholarships, call the H-G office at 570-724-2079 or email

New Fortress Energy Planning Two LNG Plants in Northeast Pennsylvania

Solution for stranded natural gas transport

New Fortress Energy LLC is developing plans for two facilities that would liquefy natural gas produced in the Marcellus Shale of Pennsylvania, according to a recent filing with federal regulators.

One of those small scale facilities is in the advanced design and permitting stages and is expected to be completed in 4Q2020, according to a registration statement filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to take the company public. The second liquifier is expected to be online by 1Q2021.

The company said it has already entered into a 15-year supply contract for feedgas, with pricing that is “generally fixed” at $2.50/MMBtu. The facilities would be capable of producing 3-4 million gallons/day of liquified natural gas (LNG).

While the prospectus does not reveal the proposed locations, New Fortress presented its plans to Wyalusing Township officials in Bradford County this month, according to news media reports. According to the reports, it has purchased 265 acres to build a liquefaction plant near the township.



The Dickens Village, on display in the front windows at the Deane Center, lights up at night.
On display in the front windows of the Deane Center for the Performing Arts at 104 Main Street in Wellsboro are Department 56 Dickens' Village buildings and accessories collected by Jean Balko, now of Oil City, Pa. She has given her collection to the Wellsboro Area Chamber of Commerce.

“When I was about five years old, there was this chest of drawers at the top of the stairs in my grandparents’ house. It had a clock sitting on it that looked like a little house to me,” said 90-year-old Jean said. “I loved it.”

“My first thought when I saw the Dickens' Village pieces in the 1980s was ‘Wow, they are neat.' They made me feel like a little girl again." First introduced in 1984, the Dickens' Village collection depicts the places and people that readers of works by Victorian era author Charles Dickens' visualize.

Jean began buying village pieces but not for herself. “The first one I bought was for my hairdresser and then for friends,” she said. “It was probably a couple of years before I began buying them for myself and family members.

“My husband Albert and I had moved to Virginia Beach in 1970, 48 years ago. He passed away in 2006.
Among the Department 56 Dickens' Village buildings on display in the front windows at the Deane Center is "The Cottage of Bob Cratchit & Tiny Tim" (shown). It will be on display through New Year's Day.

Between the late 1980s when she started and the early 2000s when she stopped, Jean had collected 76 buildings plus numerous figurines, lampposts, fences, trees carriages, and other accessories.

“I displayed the Dickens' Village pieces on a five by eight-foot plywood base and on shelves on the walls in our living room and our family room," she said. "I never put any away and always lit them at Christmas because my friends enjoyed coming to see them. Luckily I did keep the boxes."

This year, when she decided to move from Virginia Beach to Oil City, her first priority was to find a home for her Dickens' Village. “I love that village and wanted to know where it was going to be,” Jean said.

Martha, Jean’s daughter who lives in Colorado, went online and found out that Wellsboro holds a Dickens of a Christmas event each year. Martha contacted Wellsboro Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Julie VanNess who said yes to Jean’s offer to give the village to the chamber.
Jean Balko

Jean did keep a couple of pieces. “I kept a castle - the first piece I bought - plus a church and a carriage or two, and, as promised, I gave my niece Scrooge’s house and the ghosts.

“I am so happy that my village has a home,” Jean said. “I plan to come to Wellsboro to see it. I am not sure whether that will be this year or next as I just moved to Oil City in November.”

“It took two SUVs to bring Jean’s village to Wellsboro,” VanNess said. “My daughter Kate (Winter) and I each drove our own vehicles to her home in Virginia Beach in August. When we left there, both of our SUVs were filled with Dickens Village boxes.”

The Dickens' Village will remain on display at the Deane Center until New Year’s Day. A handful of pieces that could not be included at the Deane Center because of space are on display in the chamber office at 114 Main Street.

“I promised Jean this collection will remain intact," said VanNess. "She wanted to see it stay together so people could enjoy it as much as she has.”
