Think About It

I Am So Frustrated
Pastor B.J. Knefley

Several months ago II am so frustrated this morning. No, not with anyone specific. In this case, it’s my dog. Yes, my dog has me in a twisted fit of frustration. Understand that she didn’t do anything other than what dogs do, she ate what she shouldn’t. Now that would have been bad enough but to compound it, she’s thrown up about six times since, which probably on some level was a good thing. This morning she drank to much water to quickly, all of which I tried to control because I knew what would be coming, and you guessed it, she threw up again. Not once but twice. Her bedding is a mess and I’ll either have to wash it or go to the Goodwill store and buy a couple of new blankets.

I know, I know, she’s a dog, what should I expect? I suppose the issue is the whole idea of being totally out of control. Additionally, I’m not in my house, I’m in someone else’s. It’s one thing when your dog is throwing up in your in own house, but someone else’s, not so good. It’s one of those things that I wouldn’t wish on anyone, not even my worst enemy.

Oh wait, that’s not all. To top off everything else, while all of this was going on, the power was out and it was dark. Thank God for flashlights. Seems there was an ice storm the night before and power had been out for most of the day and into the evening. Yesterday to get here, I had to drive through a snow storm. All of this to say that I’m south, way south of the Mason Dixon line. Lord help me! At least it isn’t the sub-zero temperatures that they are having back home where I live.

Okay, I’m through with my rant. I’ve regained my composure and I’m reminded that there is nothing new under the sun and that what falls to one man falls to another. I suppose that what is the most helpful to know is that my experiences and frustrations are common, I’m not alone. The ultimate question is not what happens to me or you, but rather what we do with them. That is the test of our true character. Think about it.

Irene K. "Renie" Bish, 89, formerly of Chestnut Street in Mt. Jewett, PA

Irene K. "Renie" Bish

Irene K. "Renie" Bish, 89, formerly of Chestnut Street in Mt. Jewett, PA, died July 8, 2020 at Sena Kean Manor in Smethport.

Born March 8, 1931 in Kane, She was the daughter of J. Walter and Natalie Kempf Carlson. On July 21, 1979 she married John F. "Jack" Bish, who predeceased her on April 24, 2020.

Renie was a graduate of Temple University (1953), majoring in chemistry and mathematics, and Kane High School (1949) where she was a member of the honor society and editor of the yearbook. She also studied Early Childhood Education in her later years at Ohio University and was a preschool teacher in Athens, Ohio while later serving on the board of the local Lutheran Church Preschool.

A retiree of Hamlin Bank, Renie loved traveling with her husband Jack across the United States to visit friends, relatives, and tour National Parks and, for a period of time in the 1990's, devotedly attending Buffalo Bills games in Orchard Park with Jack and at the four appearances in the Super Bowl.

Renie was passionate about helping others through volunteering, as a Girl Scout leader, Sunday School teacher, board member of various organizations, Town Welcome organizations, Meals on Wheels, and churches in the many towns she lived in throughout Washington, Oregon, West Virginia, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. She was a member at St. Matthews Lutheran Church, the Mt. Jewett Senior Center and both the local and international camping club.

Most of all, she found great joy and satisfaction spending time with her family, receiving all of the love that she felt from her husband, children, and grandchildren.

Surviving are a son Scott (Kelly) Elisar of Bexley, Ohio, a stepson Richard (Debbie) Bish of Kane, daughter Katherine (Kevin Carson) Elisar of Roseburg, Ore., stepdaughters Jacalyn (Bob) Cooney of Smethport, Kathy Haggard of Cabot. 13 grandchildren, fifteen great grandchildren and four great great grandchildren also survive, as do many nieces and nephews.

In addition to her husband and her parents, she was preceded in death by a step daughter Laura Andrusis, a grandson John Haggard, her three brothers, Walter, Jay, and Richard Carlson and her sister, Eugenia Thompson.

A graveside service and burial will be held privately at Mt. Tabor Cemetery in Kane with the Rev. David Pflieger, Chaplin of the Lutheran Home at Kane, presiding.

If so inclined, contributions in Renie's memory can be made to the Girl Scouts of Western Pennsylvania, 503 Martindale Street, Suite 500, Pittsburgh, PA 15212.

The family would like to thank Gerri Alexis for her loving and compassionate care for Renie and her work with helping Jack care for Renie at home, as well as the dedicated staff at Sena Kean for watching over Renie with love, care, and compassion during her time there.

United Way of the Bradford Area, Inc. Announces 2020-2021 Campaign Chair

Officials with the United Way of the Bradford Area have announced that Eric and Suzi Marasco will serve as the new chairpersons for the 2020-21 campaign. 

The Marasco’s will lead the United Way campaign under the theme, “Believe in Tomorrow.”
Sarah Lonzi, Executive Director for the United Way, said the campaign will kick off Aug. 15 and is expected to continue through Jan. 31, 2021.

Funds raised by the United Way campaign will continue to help a number of local charities and nonprofits including those that were likely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. 

The Marasco’s said campaign committee members include Michele Skaggs, a logistics analyst with American Refining Group, and Kelsey Obermyer, a nurse at Warren General Hospital. Both Michele and Kelsey reside in Bradford. 

In sharing some of their background, the Marasco’s said they returned to their hometown of Bradford with their young son, Leo, approximately three years ago from the Philadelphia area as they both have families in Bradford. Eric is the son of Joseph Marasco and Karen Eddy, and Suzi is the daughter of Kate and Roger Sager. 

“We chose to return to Bradford because our families are here and we value the strong sense of community that the Bradford area provided to us growing up,” Suzi remarked.

Professionally, Eric is a sales manager with H&R Group, a German-based oil refinery. Suzi is a pediatric occupational therapist working in the Bradford area and is currently working on completing her doctorate in education from the University of Dayton.
Suzi has served as a United Way board member since 2018, and Eric has been a volunteer for the United Way since returning to Bradford.

They explained why they decided to accept the request to lead the campaign.

“We were excited to accept the position as the United Way Campaign Chair as we are passionate about helping the community in this time of need,” Suzi said. “We have seen first- hand how the Bradford community is able to join together during times of need, and are humbled that the United Way will allow us to lead the campaign during such a trying year.”
They also commented on how they think the pandemic may affect this year’s campaign.

“We anticipate significant changes in fundraising in terms of in-person availability, but we are confident that our team and community as a whole will rise to the challenge and implement adaptations based on the situation,” Eric offered. “Although it is uncertain what the next few months will hold, we will advocate for the Bradford area to the best of our ability while maintaining the safety of all community members.”

They also believe that while setbacks may occur with the campaign due to the pandemic, the team is gaining new opportunities to fundraise, including virtual routes, apart from the traditional means of UWBA fundraising.

“We believe that preparedness is key,” Eric concluded. “Coming into the campaign prepared with both virtual and in-person fundraising strategies, with a mindset that allows for flexibility and adaptation, will allow us to overcome any set-backs during this campaign.”

The Marasco’s said details on the campaign will be published in the near future.

House Votes to Protect Jobs, Constitution

Click here to view video.

The state House took a stand against another unilateral action by Gov. Tom Wolf this week, voting to require legislative authorization before the Commonwealth could join the multi-state Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI).

Last fall, the governor issued an executive order calling on the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to develop proposed regulations to join RGGI. Every other state involved in the initiative was authorized to participate by its respective state legislature, not unilateral executive action.

The legislative process is designed to ensure all potential impacts of proposals like RGGI are considered. While environmental impacts are important, we must also consider the economic impacts. Participation in RGGI requires a carbon tax, which could eliminate more than 30% of the state’s current energy generation capacity, undermine our status as an electricity exporter, trigger thousands of lost jobs and massive property tax increases from closed plants, not to mention increased electricity rates for everyone. Virginia, for instance, just joined RGGI and Dominion, its utility, just announced a $50/month increase.

With our economy and our citizens already struggling due to the ongoing impacts of COVID-19, the last thing we need to do is enact new taxes and regulations that will do even more harm.

House Bill 2025 now goes to the Senate for consideration.

Still Fighting to End Disaster Declaration

A resolution to end the COVID-19 emergency declaration in Pennsylvania was presented to Gov. Tom Wolf for his signature Wednesday after the state Supreme Court ruled it had to be submitted to him for action. The governor has already said he will veto House Resolution 836, despite its bipartisan adoption by the General Assembly.

Four months into the COVID-19 disaster emergency, people who were forced out of work are still struggling to recover, many small businesses have closed for good while others are fighting to survive, and school districts are trying to develop plans to return to the classroom as the administration keeps changing its directions and recommendations to do so.

The time for unilateral action by the governor is long past. As a member of the General Assembly, it is my responsibility to be your voice as we try to address the many challenges brought on by this pandemic. We are calling on the governor to work with us so we can best meet the needs of our citizens and our Commonwealth.

The House State Government Committee this week also took an important step forward in the effort to prevent this problem from occurring in the future. Senate Bill 1166 seeks to amend the state Constitution by requiring passage of a concurrent resolution by the Legislature for any disaster emergency declaration a governor wishes to extend beyond a period of 21 days. This would provide an effective balance between ensuring the governor has the authority to act quickly in an immediate emergency situation while also ensuring the General Assembly is properly engaged in the process of addressing long-term response and recovery processes.

A constitutional amendment proposal must be approved by both the House and Senate in two consecutive sessions and then be put before the voters in a referendum before it can be enacted.
Hardwoods Development Council Expansion Bill Passes House

Click here to view video.

My bill to expand membership on the state’s Hardwoods Development Council has been unanimously approved by the state House.

House Bill 2149 would add a logger and a private-sector forester to the council. It also would add the secretary of the state Department of Education and replace one representative of the now-defunct Hardwood Lumber Manufacturing Association with a member of the PA Forest Products Association. Finally, it would specifically designate one seat for the Allegheny Hardwood Utilization Group (AHUG), the oldest HUG in the state.

The Hardwoods Development Council was created by law in 1988. It works with state and local governments and other entities to promote access to timber resources on private and public land. It helps promote and expand the development, processing and manufacturing of value-added forest products, as well as supports and assists the forest products industry in developing domestic and foreign markets for value-added products.

The measure now goes to the Senate for consideration.

Companies need to register for the grants regardless of whether they received funding in the last round of the regular Fire Company and EMS Grant program or not.

PSP Lewis Run Investigating Corruption Of Minor In Liberty TWP.

Woman Charged With Assault After Hitting Victim With Her Car In Rutland TWP.


FIRST News Now

GALTEON, PA - On Sunday, July 5, 2020, the Troop F Coudersport Criminal Investigation Unit received a reliable tip from an unamed individual who came forward to provide information about the murder of 19-year-old, Joshua Ramos that took place in Potter County, Pa., sometime between late March and early April of this year.

An investigation was immediately started and with the assistance of Pennsylvania State Police K-9 Jack and state troopers the remains of 19-year-old Joshua Ramos, of Galeton, were found in a wooded area near the intersection of Harrison Rooks Road and Whiteman Road in Harrison Township, Potter County, PA.

On Monday, July 6, 2020, at 12:53PM Potter County Coroner Kevin Dusenbery pronounced Ramos deceased. This action allowed the activation of Troop F Major Case Team and the investigation took it's next step forward in the case.

Upon further investigation and with information obtained in the tip that launched the entire investigation, it was revealed 33-year-old Felicia Kay Cary, 28-year-old Kyle Michael Nathan Moore and 20-year-old Krysten Lauren Crosby, all of Galeton; allegedly assaulted Ramos and at the end Ramos was killed by the trio. An assault took place at Cary’s residence in Galeton. The trio then transported Ramos' who was alive at the time, to two different areas. The last stop was the wooded area where they would allegedly kill Ramos by choking him and leaving his covered body behind in heavy brush.

Potter County District Attorney Andy Watson approved charges against the trio that included murder of the first degree, murder of the third degree, and conspiracy to commit murder of the first degree against all three individuals.

Cary and Crosby were taken into custody in Potter County and were arraigned before the Hon. Christopher Kalacinski, District Court 55-4-03, on July 6.

Cary was remanded to the McKean County Jail with bail denied and her preliminary hearing is set for July 27th at at 12:30PM. Crosby was remanded to the Tioga County Jail, also with no consideration of bail due to the seriousness of the charges and rules of criminal procedure. Crosby's preliminary hearing is set for July 28th at 10:00AM.

On July 7, 2020, Kyle Moore was located in New York, where he was taken into custody by the U.S. Marshals with the assistance of the New York State Police Bath Station. He is currently awaiting extradition back to Pennsylvania.

FNN learned that Felicia Cary and Kyle Moore were in a relationship at the time of the crime. It was also related to FNN that Krysten Crosby was dating the victim, Joshua Ramos. Police has not confirmed this information.

Additional information was obtained through State Trooper Kyle Wagner's affidavit of probable cause. It was learned through the information provided in the document that there was a fourth individual (a witness) that provided police with information about this terrible crime. The witness was said to have been in the home of Felicia Cary and allegedly saw the assault by the trio that would ultimately lead to the death of Ramos. The unidentified male was in the residence with Cary, Moore, Crosby and Ramos, back in April of 2020, when he heard a loud commotion coming from the kitchen of the residence. The male said he could see Ramos, Cary and Crosby in the kitchen smashing ceramic dishes, and he could see Cary was using a bat to smash the dishes.

Moore was said to have struck Ramos in the head with a closed fist for an unknown reason, later that same afternoon. Ramos was said to have fallen to the floor at that point and Moore allegedly kicked Ramos in the head and ribs while wearing his steel toed boots. Next Cary, Moore and Crosby also started striking Ramos repeatedly and swearing at him. According to the affidavit this assault went on for an hour.

The witness claimed that he told the individuals they needed to stop, but they didn’t listen. When the three ignored the witness, he took out his cell phone to record the events. (This video was part of the evidence that police were said to have that proved Ramos was murdered by the three charged in this case).

Once the beating ceased, Cary, Moore and Crosby were said to have humiliated Ramos. According to the witness, the group had planned to take Ramos to a remote location in Potter County and drop him off. The unnamed witness then drove everyone to Stewardson Township. According to the affidavit, Krysten Crosby was in the front passenger's seat, while Felicia Cary and Kyle Moore were said to have been in the rear passengers seat. Ramos was allegedly told to lie down in the third row seat.

The witness drove everyone to Ole Bull State Park. Once to Jorge Run Road, the victim (Ramos), Cary, Moore and Crosby got out of the vehicle. According to the document, the group then tried to push Ramos off of the road. At that point, Ramos lost a pair of blue Nike sandals. The group allegedly forced Ramos down an embankment of the opposite side of the road.

The witness told police that he stayed in the vehicle during this time, while Cary, Moore and Crosby, along with Ramos were out of his sight for approximately forty-five minutes. Once the three individuals returned to the vehicle, they discussed their concerns of being captured on a trail camera while leaving the victim in the woods.

The witness then drove the victim and the others to Whitman Road in Harrison Township in Potter County, PA. According to the document, the individuals in the vehicle were pulled over in Westfield, PA., by the Westfield Borough Police Department, due to a traffic violation pertaining to a loud exhaust. Police did not notice anything suspicious during the traffic stop, as Ramos was said to have been lying across the third-row seat in the vehicle, under a blanket. After the officer cleared them, they went on their way to Whitman Road.

Once they were on Whitman Road, the witness stopped the vehicle and the group, along with Ramos, all got out of the vehicle. The witness stated he remained in the vehicle, while the trio and Ramos went into the thickets. Approximately forty-five minutes later, Krysten Crosby returned to the vehicle to get a pair of jumper cables, according to the witness' statement. Crosby allegedly then ran back into the thicket. A little over an hour later, Cary, Moore and Crosby were said to have returned back to the vehicle without Ramos. The trio told the witness they left Ramos in the woods. It was some time later, that the trio bragged about their actions and allegedly told the witness that they choked Ramos.

The witness then took Pennsylvania State Police to the location of the area of the incident, on Sunday, July 5, 2020. It was in that area where police were able to recover (Ramos') blue Nike sandals, The following day the witness took police to the other location. Police would find the decomposed body of Ramos on the following day, Monday, July 6, 2020, with the assistance of K-9 Jack. Ramos' body was found in a heavily wooded area near the location the witness had taken the officers. According to the affidavit Ramos' body appeared to have been covered with a gray blanket and the body was partially buried underneath rocks. Jumper cables were found above the body.

Troopers interviewed Krysten Crosby, who provided police with a similar statement of the events on Monday, July 6, 2020.

Felicia Kay Cary, Kyle Michael Nathan Moore and Krysten Lauren Crosby are all sitting in prison and each have been denied bail.

Police did not provide any information as to why the witness, who came forward, did not do more to intervene during the assault of Ramos in Cary's home, or at least dial 911 with the phone he used to record the assault. Also odd was he did not even say anything to the Westfield Police who had stopped the vehicle in which Ramos was laying in the back under a blanket. It is also unknown why the witness waited so long to come forward to police about this horrible and senseless murder. Many local Galeton residents said there seemed to be plenty of opportunities for the witness to have called for help when sitting in the vehicle alone when the trio made Ramos exit the vehicle the two times. On top of that the witness waited approximately three months before coming forward to police. One thing is for sure, Galeton residents are confused and angry, as some believe that just by the witness doing nothing, he played a role in the death of Joshua Ramos. However, it seems that no charges have been filed against the witness, at this time.
