FILM TO BE SHOWN THURSDAY, AUG. 15 IN CELEBRATION OF WOODSTOCK'S 50TH ANNIVERSARY

In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Woodstock, the Deane Center for the Performing Arts is showing the documentary film "Woodstock" on Thursday, Aug. 15 at 7 p.m. in the Coolidge Theatre at 104 Main Street in Wellsboro.

Woodstock was a music festival held Aug. 15 through Aug. 18 in 1969. It attracted an audience of more than 400,000 young hippies who gathered peacefully at Max Yasgur's 600-acre dairy farm near White Lake in Bethel, New York, 43 miles southwest of Woodstock. It was billed as "An Aquarian Exposition: 3 Days of Peace & Music."

This festival was the pop culture music event of the decade and arguably to this day the single most profound event in the history of music. When it began, people had to pay to get in but with so many, the fences were torn down and it became a free concert open to the public.

Woodstock featured one of the most prolific musical lineups in history with 32 acts. Among the performers were Jimmy Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Joe Cocker, Santana, The Who, Joan Baez, the Grateful Dead and Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. The entire psychedelic music vein became popularized at Woodstock 69 and still influences bands to this day.

Admission is a $10 per person donation to support the Deane Center and its programs. This is a BYOB event. Bring beverages and snacks and reserve a table free of charge by calling 570-724-6220.

Wolf Administration Announces Funding to Help Volunteer Fire Companies at Celebration Marking Smokey Bear’s Historic Impact on Forest Fire Prevention

​Gardners, PA -- Today, Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Secretary Cindy Adams Dunn and State Fire Commissioner Bruce Trego today announced more than 130 wildfire fighting grants totaling nearly $620,000 to assist volunteer fire companies throughout the state.

The new funding was announced at the gathering at Pine Grove Furnace State Park marking Smokey Bear’s historic impact on forest fire prevention.

“Across the state, a total of $617,809 will benefit volunteers serving rural areas and communities where forest and brush fires are common,” DCNR Sec. Dunn said. “To appreciate the value of well-equipped and highly trained wildfire fighters, one only has to look outside Pennsylvania to the horrific fires that sometimes plague other states.

“So, this is a fun day -- and a very serious day -- as some of our coworkers and neighbors could well be called upon again to battle wildfires in Pennsylvania and far beyond our state borders. Fittingly, that combination of fun and seriousness always has been the embodiment of what Smokey has preached for 75 years. This is the perfect occasion to announce new funding help our volunteer fire companies.”

“Smokey has been a friend and ally to firefighters throughout the nation, and an icon to park-goers young and old,” State Fire Commissioner Bruce Trego said. “Though the increased threat of wildfires is relatively new, Smokey’s message of responsibility and self-awareness has proven to be timeless. Prevention will always be the most effective tool we have at our disposal to fight wildfires.”

Although progress has been made, wildfires remain one of the most critical environmental issues affecting the U.S.

Many Americans believe that lightning starts most wildfires. In fact, on average nearly nine out of 10 wildfires nationwide today are caused by people.

“Too often in our spring wildfire season, volunteer fire companies are kept jumping from one wildfire to the next,” said Pennsylvania State Forester Ellen Shultzabarger. “They need all the help they can get, and I am delighted to announce DCNR will be again providing funding to 132 companies that need it most.”

"To Fill a Backpack" Volunteers Pack 396 Backpacks For Free Distribution

Andy Kulp

Well everyone...with 28 volunteers coming in from as far as Mansfield to pack backpacks we did it again. 396 backpacks packed in 1 hour (about 6.6 backpacks per minute)...not to shabby if I can say so myself.

We would like to thank each and every one of you that helped with the packing. When I look at the list of Volunteers that were there I see names that I know of but don't know the actual person and other's that are repeat Volunteers every year.

Special thanks to the Port Allegany Spinoff group (not sure what the groups name actually is) from the Rotary for their donation of 400 boxes of colored pencils for this years packing. They collected .05¢ deposit bottles and then turned them in to collect the money and and then went and purchased the colored pencils that we are always short of every year. This is their second year of taking care of this for us and we really do appreciate it. A couple of the Members came to help pack as well and we appreciate that too.

So now for the fun part...lets get these babies distributed and to the kids so that they have them for school and then we can pack the stuff away again for another year..

Thanks again everyone for the help and hope you can make it again next year and our numbers can be a little higher...

Anyone that requested backpacks is welcome to pick them up here at my home in Roulette anytime today (Saturday) until 7pm. Please come to the back door and ring the door bell (ONCE) and I will come out. The earlier you get here the better choice of bags you have...

ARCHERY FESTIVAL TO RETURN TO POTTER COUNTY AUG. 15-18, 2019

The Potter County Bowhunter Festival will once again be held at the Denton Hill State Park. In its 36th consecutive year, the PCBF will offer realistic hunting scenarios for archers of all ages.

The PCBF is an event that has always been operated for the purpose of educating bowhunters and providing opportunities for them to get ready for the upcoming archery deer season. The event is held on 750 acres and attracts 1200 to 1500 shooters as well as spectators. It has 8 field courses of 3-D animals in situations that are often encountered when bow hunting. Some of the shots are from elevated platforms but most are from ground level. Participants can expect to find some shots from a sitting position, some with only half of the animal’s vitals exposed, and some with vegetation in the arch of the arrow, making situational awareness a must. Practicing on our wooded courses is a great way to prepare for the upcoming hunting season.

Traditionally, many of the attendees take advantage of the onsite camping facilities and bring along their families. Consequently, many of the events are kid-oriented. There is a special kids' range with deer, bear and some “monster” targets like a red toad and alligator. The kid’s field course is fun for kids wanting to shoot foam snakes and skunks. Each day the staff sets up a balloon shoot just for kids.

There are two competitive events held at the PCBF each year. The King of the Mountain, in its 13th year, is a competitive event held on a course of about 30 targets. It takes place on Friday and Saturday with a final shoot-off on Sunday. There is also a Sharp Shooter event that results in the winner taking home half of the entry fees collected. The other half of the fees goes to help wounded vets. The Sharp Shooter event also includes a free kids’ competition, with 3D target prizes. This fundraising event annually raised money for LEEK, a local Wounded Warrior organization that provides no cost hunting and fishing opportunities for our wounded Vets.

The Potter County Bowhunter Festival will have a coon shoot, lighted targets, archery dealers, target dealers, clothing vendors, food vendors and hot showers for campers. It is open for compound and traditional bows. The PCBF will be held Aug 15-18, 2019 at the Denton Hill State Park which is located on Rt 6, midway between Galeton and Coudersport, Pa. For more information, check out www.archeryfestivals.com, our Facebook page www.facebook.com/PCBFPA/ or email archeryfestivals@archeryfestivals.com

Causer, Scarnati Announce New State Investment in Engineering, Information Technology Facilities at Pitt Bradford

HARRISBURG – The effort to bring new engineering and information technology training opportunities to the region took another step forward today as Rep. Martin Causer (R-Turtlepoint) and Sen. Joe Scarnati (R-25) announced they have secured $1 million in state funding for the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford.

The university will use the funding to build an academic building to house its new and growing engineering and information technology programs. The funding supplements $2 million in state money released last year, and the lawmakers say they will work to obtain more to assist with the $22 million project cost, most of which will be funded by the university.

“This is great news for prospective students and area employers who have struggled to find properly trained and qualified workers to fill open jobs,” Causer said. “This has the potential to be a game-changer for our local economy, enabling employers to grow and expand here and giving more young people the opportunity to pursue a well-paying career while staying close to home.”

“I am very pleased that once again this year, the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford is receiving substantial state funding towards this important program,” Scarnati said. “This is an outstanding investment in the future of our region. The funding will be a tremendous asset and help to ensure that we are in a better position to keep our young people here, as we work to retain the manufacturing jobs we have and also recruit new opportunities.”

The proposed new building will house engineering labs, engineering shops, computer labs [including a Virtual Reality lab and a Systems, Networks and Projects (SNAP) lab], the campus IT hub, classrooms and related offices.

“This great news adds to the growing excitement we’re all experiencing on our campus as we prepare for the upcoming academic year and welcome a new freshman class,” said Dr. Catherine Koverola, university president. “We are profoundly grateful for the continuing support of Sen. Joe Scarnati and Rep. Marty Causer and for their latest efforts to secure additional funds for these important academic programs.

“These new and enhanced programs will provide many benefits. Our students will have additional and enhanced educational opportunities, and students from the region interested in studying these programs will be able to remain in the area. Additionally, these programs will provide our local business and industry partners with well-educated engineering and technical professionals who will inject energy and enthusiasm into the region,” she added.

According to the university’s funding application, the building will be approximately 36,850 square feet and located on campus, adjacent to the Hanley Library. The design phase is anticipated between March 2019 and February 2020 with a construction phase to follow May 2020 through June 2021. Officials expect the project to create construction jobs as well as 10 new permanent faculty and staff jobs associated with teaching and supporting the academic programs. Additionally, 24 teaching jobs will be retained through the project.

The program expansion is expected to generate an average of 50 students each year and support 200 students after the fourth year. According to the state Department of Labor and Industry, students studying these majors will graduate into rapidly growing career fields.

Funding for the project was authorized by lawmakers in the Capital Budget Project Itemization Act.

Allegany County’s history of oil production highlighted

By Kathryn Ross
Wellsville Daily Reporter

BOLIVAR — If you’ve seen the Pioneer Oil Museum in Bolivar, you haven’t seen it the way it is today.

Over the proceeding year there have been some changes in the building that houses the history of oil production in Allegany County. If not the oldest, it is one of the oldest buildings in Bolivar, built in 1851. Over the years it has housed many different businesses. For the last several decades it has been the repository of tools, machines, photographs, papers and information pertaining to oil production. It was packed to its tin ceiling with memorabilia, so packed that at times it was difficult to navigate the many displays, bookcases and shelves.

“That is why over the past year we’ve renovated the building,” explained Kelly Lounsberry, the chairman of the Bolivar Pioneer Oil Museum Committee.

The Pioneer Oil Museum on Main Street in Bolivar is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday-Friday, from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, and 1 to 4 p.m. Sundays. Read more....

RECALLS

Ridge Properties LLC DBA Pain Relief Naturally is voluntarily recalling 4 lots of 4% lidocaine topical cream & liquid gel products sold at the consumer level. FDA analysis has found these products to have microbiological contamination and the potency is higher than the labeled amount for lidocaine.

The risks from a contaminated pre-tattoo product are greater since the skin is being traumatized immediately after application and tattooing is known to have infectious complications. Additionally, use of lidocaine greater than the label claim may increase the risk of methemoglobinemia, a blood disorder in which an abnormal amount of methemoglobin is produced. To date, the company has not received any reports of adverse events related to this recall.

PRE-TAT is marketed as a numbing agent/topical anesthetic used prior to tattoo application. Soothing Sore Relief is marketed for soothing relief of pain and/or itch associated with hemorrhoids and bedsores. Superior pain and itch relief is marketed as a numbing agent/topical anesthetic. Lots & expiration dates are listed on a gold colored expiration sticker on the back of the products. Products were distributed nationwide through online sales at the following websites: amazon.com, ebay.com, walmart.com, tatbalm.net, & naturallyhl.com.
