At 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Feb.1 and 2, public performances of Disney's "Aladdin Junior" will be given in the Elkland Auditorium at 110 Addison Hill Road. Shown in this photograph, taken on Friday, Jan. 18, the second day of rehearsals at Hamilton-Gibson's Winter Theatre Arts Camp in Elkland, are: (from left) Maddi Schoonover cast as Jasmine, Carsyn Kemp as Aladdin and Hannah Butkiewicz as Genie.

The cast has been chosen for the musical "Aladdin Junior," rehearsals are underway and performances for the public will be at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, Feb. 1 and 2 in the Elkland Auditorium at 110 Addison Hill Road.

Beginning Thursday and Friday, Jan. 17 and 18, 66 third through ninth graders from Northern Tioga School District communities began preparing for the show during Hamilton-Gibson's Winter Theatre Arts Camp in the Elkland Auditorium. Rehearsals will continue right after school Wednesday through Friday, Jan. 23-25 and Monday through Thursday, Jan. 28-31 as well as this Saturday, Jan. 26 from 9 a.m. to noon. All campers are being taught choreography, how to project their voices when speaking and singing and how to create a character, all while having fun.

"Aladdin Junior" is a one-act, eleven-scene theatrical musical adapted from the 1992 Walt Disney Animation Studio's film "Aladdin." Based on the animated film and hit Broadway show, Disney's "Aladdin Junior" is filled with magic, mayhem, flying carpet rides and songs like "A Whole New World," "Friend Like Me" and others from the Academy Award-winning score.

When street urchin Aladdin falls for the strong-willed Princess Jasmine, he gets help from a fun-loving Genie to outsmart the wicked Jafar and win her hand. "The music and story are delightful," said Thomas Putnam who is directing the production. "There is lots of humor," he added.

Cast as the 14 main leads and principals are: Carsyn Kemp as Aladdin, Madison Schoonover as Jasmine and Hannah Butkiewicz as Genie; as Aladdin's friends, Thomas Brown as Babkak, Blaise Sargent as Omar and Joel Tubbs as Kassim; as Jasmine's friends, Kendra Moises as Isir, Kari Doran as Manal and Heidi Gee as Rajah; Meriah Schoonover as Jafar, the Sultan's most trusted advisor who wants to be the ruler of Agrabah, and Kellan Freeman as Jafar's parrot and sidekick Iago; Connor Burdick as the Sultan, Jasmine's doting father; Bryson Fuhrer as Razoul, the head of the Royal Guard and Jafar's right-hand man; and Ben Schoonover as Prince Abdullah, one of Princess Jasmine's haughty and arrogant suitors.

The other 52 campers are members of the ensemble. They play Agrabah townspeople, harem girls, princes, guards and other characters as well as sing. Abygail Harlow is the Beggar and Darby Crance is the Apple Vendor. Others will be cast for seven roles to speak or sing one-liners. In addition to Harlow and Crance, the ensemble includes: Ashlyn Achey, Haly Border, Isabella Bressler, Taylor Bressler, Aericah Brown, Cynthia Brown, Dillian Brown, Markenna Burdick, Jaylin Butler, Kyra Campbell, Kalyn Daniels, Emily Darr, Audriana Davis, Hannah Day, Hannah Dodson, Kaylei Downes, Gabe Drew, Leah Earle, Quinn Evans, Aloni Hatch, Korbyn Huntington, Payton Huntington, Landen Hurd, Matthew Jones, Sayde Jo Loucks, Trisha Mallon, Camden Marsiglio, Noah Mattison, Amaya McNeal, Braden Moon, Lillian Moon, Kelie O'Rooney, Beckett Pritchard, Coralyn Pritchitt, Aubree Roe, Abbey Schwartz, Brayleigh Section, Samuel Slocum, Lexi Smalley, Noelle Smith, Joelanna Stephens, Jacob Stone, Johanna Terpstra, Lila Trump, Raegan VanGorden, Paige Volterman, Emma Walter, Gabby Walter, Joey Walter and Ariana White.

St. Marys Dispatched To Structure Fire

At 6:05 PM on Saturday, St. Marys Fire Department has been dispatched to 129 Bank Street for a residential structure fire. Report smoke showing.


The Pennsylvania Game Commission, in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Agriculture-Wildlife Services (USDA-WS), is conducting a project in Blair and Bedford counties to reduce the impact of chronic wasting disease (CWD). CWD is a threat to Pennsylvania’s deer and elk populations. Deer and elk infected with CWD have lower survival rates, and this can lead to fewer deer and elk and fewer hunting opportunities. Unfortunately, CWD continues to increase in Bedford and Blair counties.

The Pennsylvania Game Commission is implementing this reduction to minimize the impact of CWD on the deer population in this specific area. The decision to reduce deer numbers is based on experiences in other states where reducing deer numbers has reduced the effect of CWD.

During the past deer hunting seasons, the Game Commission provided hunters the first opportunity to harvest more deer by increasing antlerless licenses and Deer Management Assistance Program (DMAP) permits in northern Bedford and southern Blair counties. Currently, Game Commission staff are conducting post-hunting season deer population surveys to estimate the number of deer in the area. This estimate will be then compared to the population objective of 2,000 to 2,500 deer. Targeted removal, conducted by USDA-WS professionals, will then be used to reduce the deer numbers to this objective.

Removals will only occur on lands with landowner permission, and will be completed this winter and early spring.

In addition to conducting population surveys, Game Commission staff are capturing and marking deer as part of this project. Captured deer will be marked with ear tags and radio collars, and then released. The radio collars will provide movement and survival data. Captured and collared deer will not be killed as part of the targeted removal.

Deer harvested through targeted removals will not go to waste. All deer will be tested for CWD and infected deer will be disposed of properly. The remaining venison from targeted removal operations will be donated to cooperating landowners and to local food banks.

The Game Commission does not take the decision to reduce deer populations lightly. Without effective action, CWD will continue to increase. As CWD increases, deer survival declines. Eventually, deer populations and hunting opportunities decline. Based on other states experiences, reducing deer numbers is the best management option. Without action, CWD will continue to spread in Pennsylvania and will have long-term negative impacts on deer and deer hunting. As the state agency responsible for managing Pennsylvania’s deer and elk herd, it would be irresponsible not to take the threat of CWD seriously.

CWD is a fatal disease that affects deer and elk. CWD can be transmitted directly through animal-to-animal contact or indirectly through contaminated environments. Prions or misfold proteins can be shed onto the environment through bodily fluids and once there can remain infectious for several years. Currently, there is no vaccine or cure for CWD.

For more information on CWD, please refer to the Game Commission website at

Middlebury Center Woman Died As A Result Of Friday Crash Near Morris, PA

A Middlebury Center woman was fatally injured on Friday in a pickup truck crash off Route 414 in Liberty Township on Friday morning.

Darlene E. Harrison, 77, of Middlebury Center, was removed from the wreckage and transported by helicopter to Geisinger Medical Center  where she died according to Pennsylvania State Police.

She was a passenger in a 2018 Ford F150 pickup truck driven by her husband, Herbert Harrsion Jr., 76, who suffered a suspected minor injury. He was transported by ambulance to Soldiers & Sailors hospital in Wellsboro by the Morris Fire Department ambulance.

Trooper Donald Wolfe who investigated the crash said the crash occurred  as the truck traveled eastbound, entered a downhill left-hand curve and exited the south side of Rt. 414. The truck began to travel in the snow along the roadway, struck a curve arrow sign and continued to travel along the roadway in an easterly direction. It traveled down an embankment and the front right side collided with a tree, continued east, and impacted another tree. The accident occurred about a half mile east of Kreger Road at about 9:56 AM.

Bradford Township Dispatched To Natural Gas Leak Inside

At 2:11 PM on Bradford Township Fire Department has been dispatched to 485 Interstate Parkway for a natural gas leak inside a crawl space.


(By Mike Leone)

(Ransomville, NY)...The Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Racing Series powered by Pace Performance will have two sanctioned events at New York's Ransomville Speedway in 2019. A Sweeney RUSH Late Model Weekly Series event will take place on Friday, June 7, while the RUSH Sprint Cars will make their first ever appearance on Friday, September 13 in a Bonnell's Rod Shop Weekly Series event.

"No matter what the division, our racers always enjoy competing at different venues and we're appreciative Ransomville will give our Late Models and Sprint Cars the opportunity to compete at their facility in 2019," stated RUSH Director Vicki Emig. "Member racers in both divisions will be able to compete at Ransomville and accumulate points towards the Weekly Championships. RUSH rules of course will be in effect."

Ransomville is located 50 miles from Saturday night RUSH Late Model weekly-sanctioned Genesee Speedway in Batavia, NY and 40 miles from Sunday night RUSH weekly-sanctioned Humberstone Speedway in Port Colborne, Ontario, Canada. Ransomville will pay a purse similar to Genesee's weekly purse. The RUSH Late Models' last appearance at Ransomville was back on July 15, 2016 in a Touring Series event when Bryce Davis won the first ever Crate Late Model show contested at the historic track.

Three former Ransomville Street Stock drivers, Dave Stolzenberg, Austin Hauser and Ryan Hoolihan are expected entrants. Stolzenberg is a regular at Humberstone, while Hauser and Hoolihan will be new RUSH Late Model competitors in 2019. 2018 RUSH Late Model "Futures Cup" Champion, David Pangrazio, will be one of the favorites.

Last year, the New York tracks of Brewerton, Can-Am, Skyline, and Weedsport that don't host RUSH Late Models on a weekly basis, held RUSH-sanctioned events.

The RUSH Sprint Cars will appear at Ransomville as part of the three-night "Empire State Classic" that kicks off at Ransomville on September 13 followed by back-to-back events at Genesee on September 14-15. Each event will pay $800 to-win, $160 to-start. Last year, Chad Ruhlman swept both Genesee events over a 16-car field during the inaugural season part of the track's "Topless Nationals".

Ransomville Speedway is a 3/8-mile dirt track located at 2315 Braley Road, Ransomville, NY 14131. For information, check out their website at, like them on Facebook by searching Ransomville Speedway or follow them on Twitter @Ransomville.

Bradford Man Accused Of Attacking Officers Assisting Probation Department

Officers were requested to assist Adult Probation with locating a person on probation at 75 Jefferson Street. This person was Chad Reed. Prior to the request, Reed was viewed inside the residence by Adult Probation Officers. The probation officers then maintained the perimeter of the residence until BPD officers arrived. They advised they made a positive identification of Reed as he walked upstairs. They then witnessed Reed looking out an upstairs window.

BPD officers were then requested to assist Adult Probation with locating Reed inside the residence. We complied and entered the residence with a McKean County Probation Officer. It was then found that Reed had locked himself inside a bathroom. Reed was then advised Reed to exit the bathroom, he refused.

Officers then made entry into the bathroom. As soon as the door was opened, Reed attacked Officer by charging at him and attempting to strike him. During this time Reed was swinging his fist wildly at the Officer, Reed continued to fight, punch and kick at the Officer. A Taser was then deployed and after a short physical struggle Reed was then secured in handcuffs and removed from the residence.

Reed was subsequently transported to the City of Bradford Police Station and charges were filed. Reed was subsequently remanded to McKean County Jail.

Community Invited to Support THON at Dancer Send-off Dinner, Hair Auction

Left to right, Penn State DuBois THON Dancers for 2019, Jamie Turner, Tristen Bressler, and KJ Long.
DuBOIS – All members of the community are invited to help support the efforts of THON by attending the Dancer Send-off Dinner and Hair Auction planned for Thursday, February 14, in the student union at Penn State DuBois. This event celebrates this year’s Penn
State DuBois THON Dancers, KJ Long, Tristen Bressler, and Jamie Turner, who will travel to University Park that evening to prepare for THON Weekend. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and a spaghetti dinner starts at 6:00 p.m.

The evening will also feature a silent auction, and a hair auction, during which
those in the audience place bids in order to raise enough money for the volunteers to get their hair cut. Each volunteer has set a minimum amount that has to be reached in order for them to lose their locks. Volunteering to get their hair cut for the cause this year are THON Dancers Bressler and Turner, student Heather Witherow, student Cody McClintick, and 10 year old Brianna Brubaker, daughter of Marcie Brubaker, campus assistant student engagement coordinator. Penn State Altoona student Madyson Hetzler will also join those from DuBois to have her hair cut. Hetzler is following the example of her sister, Jacqueline, who is a Penn State DuBois alumna who participated in the hair auction when she was a student.

Bressler, Turner, and long will officially represent Penn State DuBois as the designated campus dancers at THON 2019 set for February 15, until the 17, at the Bryce Jordan Center at University Park. They have been challenged to stay on their feet for 46 hours during the dance marathon at the Bryce Jordan Center, alongside thousands of students from all Penn State Locations.

Each year, THON, Penn State's Dance Marathon, raises millions of dollars for the Four Diamonds Fund. The event's sole beneficiary, and a leader in the fight against pediatric cancer, the Four Diamonds Fund fills in the funding gaps that insurance leaves for the patients it serves, enabling families to focus on caring for their child. Because of large donors like THON, Penn State Hershey Hospital recruits world-class talent to continue innovative research, and to maintain and expand the state-of-the-art Children’s Hospital.

The cost to attend this event is $5 per Penn State Student, $15 for a non-student single admission, and $25 per couple. All proceeds benefit THON. Those wishing to attend are asked to RSVP online at or to Ann Whyte at or 814-372-3011.
