PITT-BRADFORD, JCC ADD THREE NEW PROGRAMS TO TRANSFER AGREEMENT

Officials from the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford and Jamestown Community College sign a new transfer agreement. Pictured, from left, are Pitt-Bradford administrators Dr. Catherine Koverola, president, Dr. James Baldwin, vice president of enrollment management, and Dr. Steve Hardin, vice president for academic affairs. and JCC officials Dr. Marilyn Zagora, vice president of academic affairs, and Daniel DeMarte, president.

BRADFORD, Pa. – The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford and Jamestown Community College have added three new programs to a transfer agreement between the two schools, which will enable JCC students to seamlessly complete their bachelor’s degree at Pitt-Bradford in one of more than 30 programs.

The new programs – communications, forensic science and international affairs -- were added as part of a thorough review of the classes offered by JCC, which offers two-year associate degrees.

The agreements allow students and counselors to plan what courses JCC students should take to efficiently transfer to Pitt-Bradford to complete a four-year bachelor’s degree in one of 33 programs, including business management, biology and nursing.

“Each of us recognizes the importance of developing accessible pathways to help our students achieve at their highest level,” said Dr. Catherine Koverola, president of Pitt-Bradford.

“These articulation agreements are part of a long and successful collaboration between our two institutions that have enabled student who have earned an associate degree from Jamestown Community College to seamlessly pursue a bachelor’s degree at Pitt-Bradford.”

JCC President Daniel T. DeMarte said, “The new and updated transfer agreements between Jamestown Community College and the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford are the most recent example of JCC fulfilling its mission to offer current, quality programs that transfer seamlessly into baccalaureate programs at the preferred destinations of our graduates.

“Since 2013, more than 40 JCC graduates have transferred into nine different degree programs at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford. We will continue to strengthen partnerships for the benefit of our students and the Southern Tier region.”

On Wednesday, Koverola and DeMarte signed the new agreement along with Dr. Marilyn Zagora, JCC’s vice president of academic affairs, and Dr. Steve Hardin, vice president of academic affairs, and Dr. James Baldwin, vice president of enrollment management, both of Pitt-Bradford.

Pitt-Bradford and JCC first established transfer agreements in 2001 for six programs.

Pitt-Bradford is a four-year, baccalaureate degree-granting regional campus of the University of Pittsburgh.

JCC has campuses in Jamestown, N.Y., and Olean, N.Y.

Chicken barbecue to benefit stray cat program is July 27 in Elkland

A chicken barbecue to benefit Elkland’s stray cat program is Saturday, July 27, 1-6 p.m. at the Moose Club, 102 E. Main St., Elkland.

Proceeds benefit the Elkland Cat Project, a joint venture between Second Chance Animal Sanctuaries and Elkland Borough to reduce the stray cat population by trapping, spaying/neutering, vaccinating, and returning Elkland’s free-roaming cats.

“Tioga County is home to thousands of free-roaming cats,” said Laura Clarson, manager at Second Chance in Tioga. “Several studies show that TNR (trap, neuter, return) is the most effective method of reducing the population of stray cats. This project not only helps the cats, but the community as well.”

Chicken halves are $6 and dinners are $10. Dinners include macaroni salad, baked beans, a roll, and a cookie. Call or text Kelly at 607-684-3419 for pre-orders.

There will also be several gift cards, items, and baskets for raffle. Winners don’t have to be present to win. T-shirts will be available for sale at the event, or can be purchased online by visiting https://www.customink.com/fundraising and searching for “Elkland Cat Project.”
For more information about the project, call Second Chance at 570-376-3646 or join the Elkland Cat Project group on Facebook.

PITT-BRADFORD STUDENTS PLANT REED BEDS AT SEWAGE TREATMENT PLANT

BRADFORD, Pa. -- Last week, more than a dozen college students, walked slowly back and forth in huge sunken sand pits at the Bradford Sanitary Authority planting reeds.

The new reed beds will help the authority process sewage with less energy and money. In an adjacent sand pit, reeds that had been planted by the environmental studies students from the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford last month, already stood a couple of feet high.

Until recently, the sand pits had been part of the sewage treatment plant’s system for reducing ammonia in its treated wastewater before it is returned to the Tunungwant Creek. As part of major upgrades at the plant, new processes are able to do the same thing more quickly and replace sand pit ammonia-removal system.

Jack Rae, the authority’s consulting engineer from Gannett Fleming, said that he realized the pits might work for the construction of a reed bed and contacted Scott Davis of the Constructed Wetlands Group.

Davis explained that reed beds dry out the sludge produced by the wastewater treatment process more efficiently than mechanical means. The sludge will be sprayed over the four acres of reed beds. Nourished by the sludge, the reeds will grow quickly to 10 to 12 feet high. The reeds roots will absorb water, and the plants will release the moisture into the atmosphere through small pores in a process called evapotranspiration.

Additionally, the reeds support an active microflora (“bugs”) within their dense root system that continually break down the sludge, resulting in a well-degraded soil like compost at the end of the 8-to-10 year cycle.

The reeds should reach maturity by November. “This will look like a corn field on steroids,” said Rick Brocius, executive director of the authority.

The reeds will remove so much of the water from the sludge that just a thin, crusty layer will remain. In the winter, the reeds will die back and be burned away, but the sludge can continue to be applied during the freeze-thaw cycle. In the spring, the reeds return and the cycle continues.

The beds essentially eliminate the need to truck sludge to the landfill, Davis explained. The authority can keep applying layers of sludge to the four acres of reed beds at Bradford for what Davis estimates will be 10 years. At that point, one bed can be emptied each year and reeds replanted.

In addition to removing water from the sludge, the reeds are also able to eliminate some harmful substances, such as heavy metals. It is possible, Davis said, that the remaining solids might even have a further beneficial use, such as being applied as topsoil to mine drainage or farming.

Davis suggested using college students with an interest in the environment to plant the reeds.

Emily Reams, an environmental studies major from Bradford, was one of them. Reed bed planting is just one of the environmental projects she is working on this summer. She is also the sustainability coordinator intern for Pitt-Bradford.

Reams said she was concerned that the genus of reed being used, phragmites, is an invasive species in Pennsylvania. She said that Constructed Wetlands sent pamphlets explaining that phragmites spreads through rhizomes, lateral growing stems that put out roots underground. Because it does not spread through seed easily, there is little risk that the reeds would take root outside the constructed reed bed.

Davis said his group would continue to monitor the beds and the creek for signs that the reeds are spreading.

Satisfied with the answers, Reams supports the project. “Here we’re treating the bio solids, and it’s a low-energy system for a high-value return.”

Lester Perry was a sociology major from Philadelphia planting reeds. He was interested in the project because he has taken some classes in plants and sociology. Perry grew up in Liberia, where he said natural methods are preferred. “We don’t use a lot of chemicals and pesticides to grow,” he said.

“I thought this was a cool idea, and I’m happy to help the process.”

Dr. Stephen Robar, director of the environmental studies program, was pleased that students had a chance to take part in the installation of a green industrial system and make a little money, too.

“It’s invaluable for students to see how an environmental management project like this works,” he said.

Davis explained that reed beds dry out the sludge produced by the wastewater treatment process more efficiently than mechanical means. The sludge will be sprayed over the four acres of reed beds. Nourished by the sludge, the reeds will grow quickly to 10 to 12 feet high. The reeds’ roots will absorb water, and the plants will release the moisture into the atmosphere through small pores in a process called evapotranspiration.

Additionally, the reeds support an active microflora (“bugs”) within their dense root system that continually break down the sludge, resulting in a well-degraded soil like compost at the end of the 8-to-10 year cycle.

The reeds should reach maturity by November. “This will look like a corn field on steroids,” said Rick Brocius, executive director of the authority.

The reeds will remove so much of the water from the sludge that just a thin, crusty layer will remain. In the winter, the reeds will die back and be burned away, but the sludge can continue to be applied during the freeze-thaw cycle. In the spring, the reeds return and the cycle continues.

In addition to removing water from the sludge, the reeds are also able to eliminate some harmful substances, such as heavy metals. It is possible, Davis said, that the remaining solids might even have a further beneficial use, such as being applied as topsoil to mine drainage or farming.

Brocius said he would welcome Pitt-Bradford professors and students back to study the reed beds as well since they are known to attract certain insects, such as aphids, and nesting water birds.

College students planting reeds at the Bradford Sanitary Authority last week as part of an ongoing improvement process at the facility. Most of the students attend the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford.

RECALLS

Northfork Bison Distributions Inc. is Voluntarily Recalling Bison Burgers & Bison Ground Because of Possible Health Risk
Northfork Bison Distributions Inc. of St. Leonard, Quebec is recalling its Bison Burgers & Bison Ground because they have the potential to be contaminated with E. coli: O121 and O103. This form of E. coli may cause diarrheal illness often with bloody stools. Although most healthy adults can recover completely within a week, some people can develop a form of kidney failure called Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS). HUS is most likely to occur in young children and the elderly. The condition can lead to serious damage and even death.

The recalled Bison Burgers & Bison Ground were distributed across Eastern & Central U. S., to institutions and retail outlets.

The institutions that have Bison Burgers and Bison Ground in their inventory with the production date: February 22, 2019 – April 30, 2019, are urged to contact their distributor for a full refund. For the retail outlets, the Bison Burgers (4 x 4 oz) in question, with the expiration date up to October 8th, 2020, can be clearly identified by their blue boxes with the Northfork Bison logo prominently displayed. Consumers who have purchased these Bison Burgers are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.

ARCHERY FESTIVALS TO CONTINUE AT DENTON HILL STATE PARK

TRADITIONAL ARCHERY TO RETURN TO POTTER COUNTY--Eastern Traditional Archery Rendezvous is a four day event which is held in the Denton Hill State Park July 25-28.

Organizers of the archery festivals in Potter County have successfully negotiated a multi-year contract with the Bureau of State Parks to hold the Eastern Traditional Archery Rendezvous (ETAR) and the Potter County Bowhunter Festival at Ski Denton (Denton Hill State Park). 

Both the Bureau and the organizers recognize the importance of the events to the economy of Potter County. Many businesses in the county report that by far, it is the busiest and most profitable period of the year, primarily because of the sheer number of attendees and that the attendees arrive well in advance of the start of the event, often planning a family summer vacation around them.

The first event is The Eastern Traditional Archery Rendezvous. ETAR is an annual 4 day event which always encompasses the last Sunday in July. In its 30th year, ETAR is an archery event held specifically for those shooting longbows and recurves. Held in Potter County at the Denton Hill State Park on Rt 6 between Galeton and Coudersport, PA, it is the largest such event in the world. 

 Last year, about 8,000 people and over 100 dealers attended this event. According to attendance records, it is not unusual for attendees to come from as far away as Mexico, Australia, Korea and Europe. Typically a large contingency comes from Canada although most attendees are from the US.

Historically the festival has been conducted by the concessionaire but because the concession contract was returned to the state, the organizers negotiated a special activities agreement or contract with the Bureau of Parks for the two archery festivals.

This year will be an interesting and educational event. Bella Gantt, a world-renowned contortionist and trick shooter will perform Thursday, Friday, and Saturday during the Day. She is known for her daring shots, and her ability to shoot a bow with her feet, while doing a handstand. Bella is only 13 years old, and has appeared on shows such as Little Big Shots with Steve Harvey.

Barry Wensel, author, hunter, and world renowned speaker will be holding a seminar on hunting White Tail Deer. Wensel has spoken around the world, and is affiliated with several national hunting organizations such as the NRA, PBS, QDMA, P&Y and the B&C.

G. Fred Asbell, author, president of Compton Traditional Archers, past president of Pope and Young and recent inductee in the Archery Hall of Fame, will be conducting a seminar on instinctive shooting. Over the years, Mr. Asbell has helped many traditional archers overcome bad habits in their instinctive shooting styles. Mr. Asbell is a regular contributor to Traditional Bowhunter Magazine and a sought-after speaker at many archery events. He and his wife Theresa have been attending the ETAR since its beginning as have world class bowyer Gerry Brumm of Great Northern Bows. Gerry and his wife Sharon refer to ETAR as their home away from home.

There are plenty of shooting opportunities seven field courses for adults, one course for children, two target ranges, a kids’ range, aerial target shooting opportunities, a running deer target, and a long distance target.

The vendor list will take an interesting turn as well. Black Widow Bows is returning to the event to give customers the opportunity to try out their bows. As always of course, bowyers will be displaying and marketing their handcrafted archery equipment. There will be flint knapping, blacksmithing, and other craft displays common of yesteryear.

Bowyers, equipment manufacturers and dealers come from at least 24 states and 3 countries. They will be displaying for sale bows, arrows, quivers, accessories, as well as many other traditional items. All bowyers will have bows for attendees to try out. Some vendors have samples to taste (food and spices), some will be sharpening your pocket knives and broadheads, others teaching you how to make your own arrows. The ETAR is one of the few places that you will be able to meet the person who actually handcrafted your bow.

Some of the demonstrations or seminars include Native Andes Native American Flutes, Bone carving, Coyote trapping, fact and fiction, Instinctive Shooting and many others.

One of the goals of the Eastern Traditional Archery Festival is to promote traditional archery to youth. Therefore, there is a kids-only course as well as a kids-only range, a moving target for kids’ special seminars for children, balloon shoots and even extra traditional kids’ bows for youth to try out. ETAR is a special event for families, focusing on the fun aspects of archery. Kids will enjoy a special range set up just for them with deer, bear and a few unusual animals. A course, specially designed for kids has skunk, baboon, snake and a few normal animals. This field course is designed as a walking course for parents with strollers. Always a hit for kids is the balloon shoot held daily at ETAR.

Another major draw for ETAR is the number of 3-D field courses. These courses offer realistic hunting scenarios, and beautiful views. As of press time, 7 field courses of over 200 targets on 700 acres were planned in addition to the kids’ course. There will also be a special competition course. There is a dealer bow tryout area, aerial targets, a long distance range, and a practice range of 30-40 targets.

A special competition is held for the benefit of wounded veterans. It is a cash prize, typically over $1,000 to the winner and the monies raised are donated to a wounded veterans program in Potter County. Competitors need to qualify during the event or at sanctioned events around the country. The final shootout is held Saturday evening.

An exciting favorite of the festival is the Swap Meet. If an attendee has (pre-owned) and lovingly used traditional archery equipment and accessories to sell, attendees can do so Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night at the Swap Meet, always a large draw for bargain hunters.

ETAR is a great family event with some families arriving at the campground nearly a week in advance. Did you read campground? During the event, ETAR is one large campground with people camping everywhere! Camping is primitive, although some do come in motor homes. Sharing campfires is common which just adds to the camaraderie. There is plenty of food available in the ski lodge and it is reasonably priced. Hot showers are available 24 hrs a day.

ETAR is a four day event which is held in the Denton Hill State Park July 25-28. Denton Hill State Park is on U.S. Route 6 midway between Coudersport and Galeton in North Central Pennsylvania.

PennDOT Provides Mid-Year Update on Road, Bridge Construction Progress

Harrisburg, PA – Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) Secretary Leslie S. Richards today announced that hundreds of construction contracts for highway, bridge, and other improvement projects have been issued this year.

Through June 30, PennDOT crews have improved more than 800 miles of roadway and rehabilitated or replaced 27 bridges statewide this year. In the same timeframe, 372 construction contracts for highway, bridge, and other improvement projects were issued statewide to PennDOT’s private-sector partners.

“We and our partners are making improvements to our large, old system in every corner of the state,” Richards said. “We work year-round to move people and goods as safely and efficiently as possible.”

Progress also continues on the department’s public-private partnership for bridges, the Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. All of the initiative’s 558 bridges have started construction, are under construction, or have finished, with 548 replaced so far over roughly six years. Located largely in rural areas, the bridges would have taken eight to 12 years to address through the department’s overall program.

PennDOT anticipates putting out for bid $2.2 billion total in projects in 2019. For more information on projects occurring or being bid this year visit www.projects.penndot.gov. The public is also encouraged to view www.penndot.gov/results, a page dedicated to reporting PennDOT’s progress in delivering for the state. Customers can also view the department’s 2018 Annual Report, which for the first time is viewable as a document and also a responsive website.

“With road and bridge work happening across the state, we encourage the public to use the many traveler information tools we make available,” Richards said. “Customers can use our travel alerts and 511PA system to plan ahead or learn about changing traffic conditions.”

Causer, Scarnati Announce PENNVEST Loan for Bradford City Water Authority

HARRISBURG – The Bradford City Water Authority has been awarded an $11.5 million low-interest loan by the Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority (PENNVEST), Rep. Martin Causer (R-Turtlepoint) and Sen. Joe Scarnati (R-25) announced today.

The loan will be used for construction of a second water transmission main between the water filtration plant and reservoir No. 4. The project will help prevent a repeat of the February 2015 catastrophic water line break that left the city without water for five days.

“This is a much-needed investment to ensure the people of Bradford and surrounding communities who are served by the city authority continue to have a safe and reliable water supply,” Causer said. “I commend the authority for pursuing this vital improvement to its infrastructure.”

“Water systems are extremely vital to the health of a community, but very expensive to build and maintain,” Scarnati said. “I’m very pleased that this assistance was approved by PENNVEST and will provide support for improvements for the Bradford City Water Authority. The funding will certainly be a crucial part of helping to safeguard our local water supplies and protect public health.”

The new water transmission main will consist of approximately 35,000 feet of 24-inch PVC waterline, valves and other waterline appurtenances. In addition to providing a redundant water transmission main with functioning shutoff valves, it will also allow the authority to complete a much-needed rehabilitation or replacement of the existing main, which was installed in 1955.

Since its inception in 1988, PENNVEST has served communities and citizens by funding sewer, storm water and drinking water projects across the Commonwealth.

Owlett Announces $6.8 Million in Funding for Westfield Borough Infrastructure Improvements

HARRISBURG – Rep. Clint Owlett (R-Tioga/Bradford/Potter) today announced approval of state funding in the amount of $6.8 million for a wastewater treatment plant replacement project in Westfield Borough, Tioga County.

“These types of projects might not be glamorous, but they are essential to public health and safety,” said Owlett. “I am grateful Westfield was selected to receive this funding, which will help take some of the financial pressure off of local taxpayers.”

Funding will be awarded to the borough through a $2.9 million low-interest loan and a $3.9 million grant issued by PENNVEST.

Funding for the project will help cover costs for a new influent pump station, a mechanically cleaned influent screen, a bypassbar screen, an aerated grit removal system, an oxidation ditch, two secondary clarifiers, two sludge digestion tanks, a chemical feed system and a new chlorine disinfection system.

PENNVEST funds sewer, storm water and drinking water projects throughout the state. These projects not only contribute to improving Pennsylvania’s environment and the health of its people; they also provide opportunities for economic growth and jobs for Pennsylvania workers.
