State, local officials convene in Coudersport to collaborate on co-op broadband project

State and local leaders met at Tri-County’s Coudersport office Tuesday, Aug. 20, to collaborate on rural broadband issues and opportunities. On hand for the meeting were, from left, Potter County Commissioner Doug Morley, Potter County Education Council Executive Director Dr. Michele Moore, Potter County Commission Susan Kefover, Sheri Collins, active executive director of the Governor’s Office of Broadband Initiatives, and Bill Gerski, senior vice president of development for Tri-Co Connections.
COUDERSPORT, PA — The state’s top broadband executive traveled to Potter County to learn how Tri-County Rural Electric Cooperative’s deployment of high-speed internet across its service territory is expected to deliver a brighter future for the region.

Sheri R. Collins, acting executive director of the Governor’s Office of Broadband Initiatives, met with representatives of Tri-Co Connections, the cooperative’s high-speed internet subsidiary, along with local government, education and business officials on Tuesday, Aug. 20.

“I’m having these conversations and meeting with businesses, educators and others to get a better understanding of what is going on in our region and to try to figure out how we at the commonwealth level can support your initiative,” Collins said during the meeting, held at Tri-County’s Coudersport office.

Among those attending the meeting were Potter County commissioners Doug Morley and Susan Kefover, Potter County Education Council Executive Director Dr. Michele Moore and Bill Gerski, senior vice president of business development for Tri-Co Connections.

Following an hour-long discussion in which attendees talked about the need for broadband in rural Pennsylvania and the many benefits it will bring to the region in the areas of business and economic development, education and healthcare, Collins traveled to two Ulysses-area businesses, Hamilton’s Pure Maple Products and the Carpenter’s Shop.

At those stops, she learned of the challenges confronting businesses located in areas with limited internet access, as well as the enthusiasm for Tri-Co Connection’s project to deliver high-speed internet to homes and businesses within the cooperative’s service territory in northcentral Pennsylvania.

Physical construction of the Tri-Co Connections fiber network is expected to begin in the fourth quarter of this year in Potter County. The project will make broadband internet service available to Tri-County’s 16,500 cooperative members over the next 6 years.

Collins said bridging the digital divide is one of the main areas of focus in Gov. Tom Wolf’s recently unveiled Restore Pennsylvania initiative. The $4.5 billion plan would provide funding to expand broadband internet service to areas of the state where it is lacking. The initiative would be funded through a severance tax on the natural gas industry.

HISTORIC DECKER’S CHAPEL IS NOT FOR SALE

Illustration of Decker’s Chapel in the mid 20th-century
RIDGWAY, PA – In recent days, the Elk County Historical Society has received numerous calls and messages regarding the historic Decker’s Chapel in St. Marys. Several concerned citizens had spotted a “for sale” sign near the property and had mistakenly believed the chapel is for sale.

The chapel, which was built in the 1850s, came under the stewardship of the Knights of Columbus in 1955. It was the Knights who first added electricity to the building. In 1990, a descendant of the Decker family deeded ownership of the building to the Elk County Historical Society, who has cared for the space ever since.

“Decker’s Chapel is one of the oldest structures in Elk County and a crown jewel of the Historical Society’s collection.” Said Nancy Peterson, Elk County Historical Society Board President. “We are always so happy when the public brings things like this to our attention and we were just as surprised as everyone else that a ‘for sale’ sign seemed to appear nearby.”

The Historical Society has been unable to independently verify the location of the sign or identify the property that is for sale, but they wanted to reassure the public that the historic chapel is not for sale and will remain under the guardianship of the Elk County Historical Society.

The Elk County Historical Society completed a major renovation of Decker’s Chapel in 2016. The original stacked stone foundation was repaired and the floor reinforced to accommodate visitors in wheelchairs. The St. Marys landmark is open every day, year-round. Visitors are encouraged to visit this quiet place of prayer and reflection and sign the guest book, which has included pilgrims from around the globe.

About the Elk County Historical Society

The Elk County Historical Society is a nonprofit membership organization funded through donations and grants and governed by a 15-member Board of Directors. The Society has is 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. The Society is funded in part by generous grants from Elk County and the Pennsylvania Historical & Museum Commission. The Society is a repository of artifacts that tell the rich story of Pennsylvania and pioneers and settlers who ventured into the vast wilds to help create America.

New students welcomed as Penn State DuBois kicks off academic year

Chancellor M. Scott Mcbride welcomed new students and their families during Penn State DuBois Convocation Ceremonies on Thursday in the campus gymnasium.
Penn State DuBois officially opened the 2019-2020 academic year on Thursday, August 22, with the campus Convocation Ceremony and New Student Orientation. New students and their families were welcomed by Chancellor M. Scott McBride and other campus leaders during the ceremony in the campus gymnasium, where they were also introduced to faculty and staff.
“Today marks the beginning of the rest of your life. The opportunity to earn a coveted Penn State degree is why you are here, but it is far from the only life-changing thing that you will take away from your Penn State experience,” McBride said. “You will discover your passions, your capacity for new knowledge and critical thought, tolerance and understanding, and your ability to dig deep within yourself to achieve far more than you ever thought possible. It's a time for significant personal growth, for taking responsibility for your own journey, and finding your own unique path for reaching your goals.”

McBride also urged new students to embrace the search for knowledge. He said, “I challenge you to be curious, ask important questions, seek truth and wisdom, critically examine and analyze, but most of all, don’t settle for knowing the right answer; seek to understand why it’s the right answer.

“Standing here this morning, I challenge you to ignite your passion for life and learning, to pay it forward to help others, and to become your very best self. I ask that together, we join to uphold our values and sustain our commitment to academic study, personal development, and to the betterment of our university community.”

Director of Enrollment Melissa Duttry also welcomed students. She explained that the student population on campus is a truly diverse group. She said, “In the bleachers today, we have students from 2 countries, 11 different states, and 86 different towns. You are representing 85 different high schools. Some of you have travelled far to get here. Our longest journey was from 2601 miles away in Tracy, California. Another student traveled a distance of 1576 miles from Lutz, Florida, and another 1128 miles from Schertz, Texas. Whether you are from Church Avenue in Brockway, Brocious Road in Marion Center, Linda Drive in Euclid, Ohio, or Mississauga, Ontario, you all have the same status; you are a new student at the Pennsylvania State University!”

Students spent the remainder of their New Student Orientation on Thursday completing icebreaker exercises, scheduling courses, meeting with their academic advisors, and attending information sessions on how to be successful as a college student. Theycomplete service to others during Community Outreach Day on the Friday following convocation each year, when they volunteer at various charitable and community-minded organizations throughout the area.

Leading up to the opening of the academic year, faculty and staff at Penn State DuBois met on Tuesday for a full-day organizational retreat. They discussed future strategies for the campus that will assure the highest quality in education and service is provided to Penn State DuBois students.
