Allegany Dispatched For Motorcycle Crash On 4 Mile Road

At 5:25 PM on Allegany Fire & Ambulance dispatched to a motorcycle crash near 1654 4 Mile Road in Allegany. Motorcycle is reported in a ditch. Operator is conscious & alert.

Fund established at CRCF to support Little Valley projects, beautification.

OLEAN, N.Y., September 13, 2019 – The village of Little Valley has always remained close to Carol Gloff’s heart despite moving away, and so she recently decided to establish the Little Valley Fund at the Cattaraugus Region Community Foundation to help give back to the community that raised her.

“I grew up in Little Valley and cherish the memories of my time there,” said Gloff, who now resides in Massachusetts. “Even after moving away for my career, I felt a calling to do something that would support Little Valley and help strengthen the community in a meaningful way.”

The Little Valley endowment fund will make possible an annual distribution to support projects and activities in the Little Valley community each year. Proposed ideas so far include beautification projects and improvements like benches and trash barrels for downtown, concerts in the village park, development of historical and recreational opportunities or the revitalization of Little Valley Days.

A committee of 10 people has been set up to collect ideas and make decisions about what Little Valley projects/activities to fund each year. The committee includes both people who live and/or work in Little Valley, and donors who grew up in Little Valley but no longer live there.

“My hope for this fund is that it provides that little extra every year to make a desired project or event possible,” Gloff said. “Village and town budgets can be tight at times, so hopefully this fund can be that cushion to make possible some things that make Little Valley an even more special place.”

Current mayor of the Village of Little Valley, Jim Bowen, anticipates the fund being able to do just that.

“Any little bit is so important. It is not easy to run a village just on taxes alone,” Bowen said. “We need to rely on as much outside help as we can”

“Any reason for people to want to come back and raise a family here is a huge thing,” he added.

The fund has already received significant support from residents past and present, to the tune of nearly $7,000 in about two months.

“To be honest, I was not sure at first that we would reach the $5,000 minimum, but people from the village, past and present, have really stepped up to make this possible,” said Gloff. “And I think now that this has the potential to grow into something really special for the place that has given us all such exceptional memories.”

CRCF Executive Director Karen Niemic Buchheit praised the work of Gloff and others who have made the Little Valley Fund possible.

“I think that what Carol Gloff has done with the Little Valley Fund is really unique and meaningful,” said Buchheit. “I think other communities should consider following her lead. For a small town or community to have expected annual income outside of a normal budget and to have that funding grow over time and last in perpetuity, it can really make a difference and make some special projects that create real change a possibility.

Donations can be made to the Little Valley Fund at CRCF, 301 North Union St., Suite 203, Olean, New York (14760) or online at cattfoundation.org.

FACULTY AND ALUMNI COUPLES TO BE RECOGNIZED DURING ALUMNI AND FAMILY WEEKEND

BRADFORD, Pa. -- Two longtime professors and two alumni from the 1960s will be honored later this month at the annual Alumni Awards Dinner during Alumni and Family Weekend at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford.

Dr. Mary Mulcahy, director and associate professor of biology, and Dr. Francis Mulcahy, director and associate professor of chemistry, will receive the Pitt-Bradford Alumni Association Teaching Excellence Award.

Also recognized will be alumni Frank and Mary Rizzo, who both attended Pitt-Bradford from 1964-66. They will receive the Denny Lowery Distinguished Volunteer Award.

The Mulcahys and the Rizzos will be recognized at the PBAA Alumni Awards Dinner at 5:30 p.m. Sept. 28 in the Mukaiyama University Room of the Frame-Westerberg Commons. The cost is $25 for adults, $12 for children 6 to 12 and free for children 5 and under. For a reservation, visit www.upbalumni.org/afw or call 814-362-5091.

Dr. Francis Mulcahy was nominated by nearly a dozen former students throughout the last decade, including those who went on to earn a doctoral and pharmacy degree.

“If you struggle with a concept, he works with you to help you learn. If you get a topic easily, he makes you feel like a star. His ability to boost a student’s ego is crucial for success in chemistry and biology,” wrote Dr. Dorothy Belle (Craig) Poli ’93, herself a professor of biology at Roanoke College.

James McAllister II ’00, wrote, “In the classroom, he knows just the right combination of teaching and fun that is required to get the learning across to students.”

Likewise, Dr. Mary Mulcahy was also nominated by a dozen enthusiastic alumni.

“Dr. Mulcahy was by far my favorite professor. She is hardworking, dedicated to her work and students and an incredibly genuine and helpful professor,” wrote Cheyenne Staufenberger ’19.

Classmate Courtney Shade ’19 wrote, “Mary Mulcahy was so supportive and helpful throughout my entire time at Pitt-Bradford, especially with getting into vet school.”

Frank and Mary Rizzo ’64-’66 have been active volunteers and supporters for the past decade. Last year, a major gift from the Rizzos put the university over its fundraising goal for the Dean Evans Legacy Fund, which benefits students at risk of not being able to continue their education due to a balance on their accounts.

The Mulcahys live in Bradford and have two children.

This year, Frank Rizzo has lead the charge to establish the Alumni Emeritus Society for alumni who attended Pitt-Bradford 50 years ago or more. As part of that effort, the Rizzos established a 1960s Emeritus Alumni Scholarship.

The Rizzos were nominated by Karen Costello-Pecht ’11 and Lindsay Hilton Retchless ’98, who have worked closely with the couple in their roles as PBAA president and director of alumni relations, respectively.

Costello-Pecht said, “I have had many opportunities to watch both Frank and Mary engage with our students, and it truly defines what it means to be a Pitt-Bradford alumnus.”

Retchless said, “Simply put, Frank and Mary’s dedication to and love of Pitt-Bradford is a rare and special gift.”

This year’s Athletic Hall of Fame induction ceremony at the Alumni Awards Dinner has been postponed due to irregularities in the approval process.

“We are deeply sorry that we will not have a Hall of Fame induction this year,” said Dr. Catherine Koverola, Pitt-Bradford’s president. “We were recently made aware that confirmation of eligibility and the necessary approval process was not followed. It is important that we follow these standard procedures before inducting any new Hall of Fame members in order to ensure the integrity of the award.”

FALL LADIES’ CONFERENCE IN EMPORIUM

All area women are invited to the Fall Ladies’ Conference, “Beautiful Posture”, on Saturday, September 21st, from 9:00 a.m. to noon at the Emporium Alliance Church on Sizerville Road. As always, the annual event will include worship, speakers, and special music. Refreshments and luncheon will be provided. 

Spokesperson Deb Eckenroth noted, “The half-day structure of these conferences is designed for busy women and/or women who drive a long distance. And the Presence of God is unmistakable throughout the morning. Jesus is incomparably magnetic and compelling, liberating and purifying, strengthening and transformational. Ladies conclude the morning saying it was so worth every effort they made to get there.” 

One of the primary speakers for this fall’s conference will be Jessica Pappas of Amherst, NY., who is described by Eckenroth in this manner: “Jess is an articulate, dynamic speaker who holds hearts and minds in a riveting way when she talks of Jesus and shares from the Word of God.” “We’re also fortunate to have Heather Glogau (Kane) leading worship. Heather is the perfect person for the role because she is herself, first and foremost, a true worshiper.” Special music will be provided by Amy Reed (Ulysses) whose unique gifting in songwriting is well known to previous conference attendees. “Amy has composed a song specifically for this fall’s event and women will be astounded that she is still only locally known for her songwriting.” Other speakers will also be participating.

There is no conference or luncheon cost, but any free-will donation will go directly to the poor in Haiti to meet basic needs for food, clean water, and medical care. Ladies’ conference donations have also paid for children’s school attendance and for small, start-up businesses in Haiti. 

“Part of the beauty of these mornings”, said Eckenroth, “is the diversity of faith backgrounds, worship traditions, age, and experiences of the women who attend – and the fact that God speaks to each of us at the place where we are. The morning isn’t only for women of faith, but definitely for those who might be questioning and searching. All are warmly invited.” For more information, Deb can be contacted at 814-486-3375. No reservations are required.

Posted Sep 13, 9:17 PM

By John Beauge | Special to PennLive

WILLIAMSPORT – A federal judge has been admonished for making conclusions a jury should address and for glossing over serious disputes regarding the facts of a case.

A three-judge panel of the U.S. 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals Thursday was critical of U.S. Middle District Judge Matthew W. Brann in an opinion reinstating two companion civil suits he had dismissed.

The panel found there are genuine disputes of material fact regarding whether the firings of Potter County prison guards Ralph Briggs Sr. and Roy Hunt were retaliatory as they claim. Read more....

Pipeline Safety Investigation Underway Involving Subsidence Incident in Middletown Township, Delaware County

HARRISBURG –September 13, 2019--- In response to reports of a subsidence near several pipelines in southeastern Pennsylvania, a safety investigation has been launched by the Pipeline Safety Division of the Bureau of Investigation & Enforcement - the independent investigation and enforcement bureau of the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC).

Reported earlier today near the northwest corner of Valley Road and West Forge Road in Middletown Township, Delaware County, the subsidence occurred along the right-of-way for Sunoco’s “GRE Pipeline” – a 12-inch steel pipeline used to transport highly volatile liquids (HVLs) and petroleum products over the Mariner East system.

The subsidence was located near the site of construction work on Mariner East 2 and in the same general area of several other pipelines. No leaks or injuries were reported. Sunoco personnel have been working to stabilize and monitor the location.

Engineers from the Pipeline Safety Division have been on site gathering information for their investigation and monitoring the integrity of pipelines in the area. Initial site surveys indicate that the GRE line was exposed but have not indicated any pipeline integrity issues. The Pipeline Safety Division will continue to closely monitor the situation.

Reporting Pipeline Safety Incidents

The Pipeline Safety Division encourages residents and businesses located near pipelines to understand how to recognize and report unusual incidents involving those lines – including the sounds, smells and sights of possible leaks.

Pipeline operators are required to regularly provide safety and awareness information to property owners along their routes, along with emergency contact information. If you suspect a leak, call 9-1-1 or local emergency responders and the pipeline operator from a safe location.

About the Bureau of Investigation & Enforcement

As the independent investigation and enforcement bureau of the PUC, I&E enforces state and federal pipeline safety and motor carrier safety laws and regulations and represents the public interest in ratemaking and service matters before the PUC’s Office of Administrative Law Judge. I&E has the authority to bring enforcement action, seek emergency orders from the Commission or take other steps to ensure public safety.
