Support the Potter County Fair

We Moved here as a organic goat farmer but wound up on food stamps doing odd jobs.

Genesee Natural Foods got a table at the Potter County Fair. Potter County became a local and a national leader in the organic food industry. Genesee Natural Food was an original board of director for the Frontier Co-Op and an early Vice President. 

Frontier Co-Op is a natural food herbs and spice company. 

From the table at the Potter County Fair we were nominated by Senator Arlen Specter to become a member of the Republican Senatorial Inner Circle. 

From that table we also established the largest natural food store in the state capital creating jobs for 18 people. Yes, a Potter County company created jobs in the State Capital. 

From that table, Genesee Natural Foods, located in Genesee, created jobs for many local people. In the early 1990’s Genesee Natural Foods became a million dollar a year business .

The major factor to the companies success was the Potter County Fair and the support of the citizens of north central Pennsylvania. All located in “ God’s Country”.

God’s Country is my “Promised land”.

Golden Afternoons Trivia Contest with Mike Detweiler is Tuesday, May 14 at 1 p.m.

Mansfield Mayor Mike Detweiler is hosting 
a trivia contest on Tuesday, May 14 at the 
Deane Center in Wellsboro.
It's 1954. An actor born in Englewood, New Jersey on Feb. 18 of this year rose to fame during the 1970s, appearing on a television series and starring in two box office successes. What is the actor's name?

That’s the type of questions adults, 55 and older will be asked during the Golden Afternoons 1940s through the 1970s trivia contest at 1 p.m. this coming Tuesday, May 14 in the Deane Center lobby at 104 Main Street in Wellsboro. The program is free and open to the public. Cookies and beverages will be provided free.

Mike Detweiler is hosting the trivia contest. Known as a trivia master, he has been leading trivia contests at Yorkholo Brewing Company and Restaurant in Mansfield for the past eight years and for the last several years for the Deane Center's Golden Afternoons program.

“People always enjoy the contests and have a good time,” he said. There will be prizes. "The goal is to have fun while taking a one hour trip down memory lane," said Detweiler. "There will be 20 trivia questions about different things like TV and music, sports, history, science and art.

The correct answer to the question above is John Travolta.

The Deane Center’s Golden Afternoons are free and provide an opportunity to socialize. For more information about these programs, call the Deane Center at 570-724-6220.

Chris Firestone to Present Program on "Edible and Medicinal Plants" at the Tiadaghton Audubon Society Meeting on Wednesday, May 15

Chris Firestone holds freshly picked dandelions. The dandelion is known as the "gateway plant."
What flowering plants can you eat and which herbs can be used to help fight disease? Where can you find them - in the Tioga State Forest or your own backyard? Do these plants need to be protected?

For answers to these questions and others, plan to attend a free presentation entitled "Edible and Medicinal Plants" at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, May 15 in the Old Music Room at the Wellsboro Area School District Administration Building at 227 Nichols Street in Wellsboro.

Featured speaker will be Chris Firestone, a botanist with the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Bureau of Forestry office in Wellsboro. She is with the Bureau's Wild Plant Management Program, which works to conserve native wild plants in Pennsylvania by identifying plant populations and the rarity of each species. Some medicinal plants are more rare than others and regulations have been put in place to protect them.

Firestone will discuss how to identify edible and medicinal plants, where to find them and the best methods for collecting and preparing them. She is bringing some prepared plants with her for the audience to try. She is also bringing live plants and resource books for audience members to look at.

"Dandelions are usually the first plant people learn they can eat," Firestone said. "That's why the dandelion is called 'the gateway plant.' Our grandparents told stories about foraging for dandelion greens in their lawns and eating the leaves as a spring tonic. I encourage people to ask questions during my presentation and share information about their favorite plants and their stories about foraging for them."

The presentation will follow the Tiadaghton Audubon Society's regular meeting, which begins at 6 p.m. To be discussed will be club business, financials and past, current and future activities.

The public is welcome to attend the 6 p.m. business meeting and the presentation or can arrive a few minutes before 7 p.m. for the presentation only. There will be a brief break between the meeting and presentation. Both are free.

For more information, contact the Tiadaghton Audubon Society by visiting or or emailing or calling Sean or Robin Minnick at (570) 948-9052.

BLT Announces Cast for Mourning Has Broken

Bradford Little Theatre is pleased to announce the cast for its upcoming production of Mourning Has Broken, a dark comedy by local playwright Pab Sungenis. The show will run May 17-19 at Togi’s Playhouse, 18 Welch Ave in East Bradford.

Mourning Has Broken was first produced at the Hudson Guild Theatre in New York in 2015. It tells the story of six close friends who have drifted apart as they have grown older, gotten married, moved for jobs, and so on. When they reunite at three funerals in three months, they use their warped senses of humor to deal with their shock and grief. As they reminisce, they learn more about each other (and themselves) than they ever wanted to know.

The ensemble of friends is played by a mix of veteran actors (Barry Fitzgerald as Barry), relative newcomers (Tony Vinca as Jeff, Roy Collins II as Don, Cassie Buck as Amy), and one performer making her BLT debut (Patti Lewis as Gabrielle). In addition to directing, Pab Sungenis will play the youngest of the friends, Tommy.

Candy Tingley plays Fran, a semi-professional mourner. Producer David Merwine plays the funeral home’s minister, and Eliana Lewis provides vocal accompaniment.

Mourning Has Broken will be performed at 7:30 pm on Friday, May 17 and Saturday, May 18, with a 2:00 pm performance on Sunday, May 19. Tickets are $10 each, $8 for students and seniors. Tickets can be purchased at Graham Florist, Togi’s Family Restaurant, or by calling Marcia at 814-598-1101. For more info, go to or find us on Facebook

Conservation District Week: Regional Trout Release Day at Wildcat Park

On Thursday, May 9th, over 100 students from Kane, Smethport and Sheffield schools attended the Regional Trout Release at Wildcat Park in Ludlow. The event was coordinated by the McKean County Conservation District. Brook trout, raised in the students’ classrooms, were released in the stream. Through the Trout in the Classroom program, students raised these trout from eggs beginning in November.

Students participated in a series of stations -‘Aquatic Invasion’, 'Watershed Walk',' Bugs of the Underworld', 'Searching for Sasquatch', ‘Recycling Relay’, and 'Cast Away'. These stations taught students the watershed & stream health; aquatic life; nature observation and signs of wildlife; aquatic invasive species, recycling information; and an introduction to fly fishing. Kane High School students planted live stakes of native shrubs on the stream bank, as well as additional trees and shrubs in the riparian area. Stations were led by staff from the McKean and Warren County Conservation Districts, Penn State Extension, and Cornplanter Trout Unlimited chapter. Wildcat Park graciously hosts this annual program. The park is the site of stream improvement projects by the McKean County Conservation District to improve habitat for native trout and other aquatic species.

The statewide Trout In the Classroom program is made possible through a unique partnership between PA Fish and Boat Commission and PA Council of Trout Unlimited. This partnership, coupled with assistance from local conservation organizations was created to introduce Pennsylvania students to cold water resources and their importance to all communities. The partnership also provides brook trout eggs, trout food, technical assistance, curriculum connections and teacher workshops each year.

The event was the final activity of the Trout in the Classroom project for the students.

The McKean and Warren County Conservation Districts support the Trout in the Classroom.

Protecting Your Second Amendment Rights

Click here to view video.
It truly is an honor to have been asked to address the crowd at Monday’s 2nd Amendment Rally at the state Capitol.

With so many tremendous speakers scheduled to appear, I kept my message short and to the point, as you’ll hear in the video clip above.                                    

Coming to Elk County This Saturday!


Reducing Government Waste

Click here to view video.

The state House is devoting the month of May to giving our state government a long-overdue upgrade.

Having “government done right” means upgrading to a more effective and efficient government while providing core services. It means repealing out-of-date laws, reexamining the effectiveness of some state boards and commissions, and putting a stop to the red tape and overregulation that has tied the hands of job creators and hampered economic progress.

Perfect example - my House Bill 1335, which would remove from the books an outdated law which no longer serves a purpose.

Thanks for listening to my explanation in the video above.

Expanding Opportunities in Education

Click here to view video.

On Tuesday, the House passed legislation that would provide tens of thousands of additional Pennsylvania families the ability to choose a school that best fits the needs of their children under the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program.

The video above explains why I joined colleagues on both sides of aisle to move
House Bill 800 to the state Senate.

Local Leaders Visit the State Capitol

The Greater DuBois Leadership Institute identifies, recruits, educates and motivates current and potential leaders.

Taking this class gives future leaders access to training, guidance, and networking opportunities that make our community better in the long run.

The last session before graduation culminates with a trip to Harrisburg, and it was a honor for me to meet them yesterday and discuss local issues.

Thank you for providing DuBois and its surrounding area a bright future!

The House recently approved my legislation recognizing the 80th anniversary of the Pennsylvania Jaycees.

It was an honor to present a House citation to (from left) former Pennsylvania Jaycees President Colleen Witman, State Treasurer Sheri Price (from DuBois), former President Peter Urscheler and current Jaycees President Neil Hanes from St. Marys.

The video above is a recording of my floor remarks.

Attention Veterans

The first Tuesday of every month, Service Officer Bradley Baranski from the Pennsylvania American Legion visits my DuBois district office from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to answer individual questions and offer information on veterans’ programs and benefits.

Last Tuesday, veteran Lyle Millard from Frenchville stopped to ask a few questions.

Thank you for your service, Lyle!
Improving CPR Education to Save Lives

This week the House passed Senate Bill 115 aimed at teaching students cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) to help them save lives.

The bill would require the Pennsylvania Department of Education to work with the Department of Health and other stakeholders to develop curriculum that could be used by schools across the state. The aim is to help reduce the more than 350,000 cardiac arrests that occur outside of a hospital each year by preparing students to save lives through CPR and the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED).

The bill now heads to the state Senate.

Chamber Golf Outing

The annual Cameron County Chamber of Commerce Golf Tournament is set for Thursday June 6 at the Emporium Country Club. The four-person scramble tees off at noon and a dinner will follow.

This week, members of the Olkosky-Jessop American Legion Post 194 in Emporium donated $500 toward the cost of the fireworks. This year that bill is $5500 for the 30-minute show. According to organizers, if more money is raised, the number of fireworks will be increased to $6000 worth.

Tap Water Taste Contest in Allegany County

The Allegany County Department of Health is sponsoring a "Tap Water Taste Contest" for Allegany County Communities. The contest will be held on Monday, May 13, 2019 in the Belmont Courthouse Lobby from Noon until 3:30 pm and Tuesday, May 14, 2019 at the Jones Memorial Hospital from 9am-2pm.

Only community water supplies are eligible, individual home samples will NOT be accepted. Everyone is welcome to stop by, sample the water, and vote for the one they think tastes best. The winner will go to the regional contest. Those winners will advance to the State Fair at Syracuse in August. For more information contact the Allegany County Health Department at (585) 268-9250.
