Doctors Dispute Republicans' Stance On Covid-19 Restrictions

Volney A. DAVENPORT, 88, of Scio, NY


Volney A. DAVENPORT, 88, of Scio, NY, left our world on Saturday, September 19, 2020 and joined his beloved wife, Mary, in the world beyond. 

Born August 6, 1932, in Scio, he was the son of Volney and Thelma Maude Stryker Davenport. On May 30, 1957, in Erie, PA, he married the former Mary Elizabeth Rolls, who predeceased him on May 24, 2010. Together they had eight wonderful children. 

Korean War Veteran
Surviving are: eight children, Connie (Jeff) Bruhl of Scio, Volney (Keely) Davenport of Crystal Springs, MS, Ron (Faith) Davenport of Scio, Lori (Jim) Howden of Wellsville, Ty (Kathy) Davenport of Scio, Tina Davenport Layman of Hilton, Sam (Debbie) Davenport of Louisa, VA, and Cindy Davenport of Bradford, PA; 25 grandchildren; 66 great-grandchildren; two sisters, Marion Rounds and Waneta Barr, both of Scio; nieces and nephews. 

 In addition to his parents and wife, he was predeceased by a grandson, John “Jon Jon” Sykes; three great-grandchildren, Jayden Holloman, Auden Sykes, and Logan Faulkner; three brothers, William P. Davenport, Henry Gorton Davenport, and Frank K. Davenport; and two sisters, Thelma G. Sadler and Kathryn M. Davenport. 

Volney and Mary built their dream home in a beautiful rural setting just outside of Scio and moved there in 1991. There they enjoyed numerous family gatherings through the years—the theme seemed to be “the more the merrier.” They welcomed and enjoyed time with all who stopped by for a visit. 

 A Korean War Veteran, Volney served honorably with the U.S. Army from 1953 — 1954. He returned home to run the family farm. He was an avid “outdoorsman” in every sense of the word and particularly enjoyed hunting and fishing. He loved his family, he was high spirited and, like his brothers, had a great “wise cracking” sense of humor. 

 In accordance with his wishes, a private service will be held at Mulholland-Crowell Funeral Home, Wellsville, NY, with burial at the family home. Volney’s beloved wife Mary will be by his side once again. “So grieve for me for a while if grieve you must, then let your grief be comforted with trust. It’s only for a while that we must part, so bless the memories within your heart.”

Suzan Richar holds a copy of "When My Family Stayed Home: A Dog’s Quarantine Story," co-authored by Logan Gorg and Katie Peachey. On the cover is one of the 27 illustrations Richar did for the book.

Logan Gorg (left) and Katie Peachey are shown with Ginger, the inspiration for Toby the dog, the main character in their recently self-published book.
Among the booths at the Galeton Area Chamber of Commerce Fall Festival on Saturday, Sept. 26 will be one with co-authors Logan Gorg of Galeton and Katherine “Katie” Peachey of Bloomsburg and illustrator Suzan Richar of Wellsboro.

They will be outdoors at the John J. Collins Memorial Park in Galeton signing copies of their book “When My Family Stayed Home: A Dog’s Quarantine Story” released on Aug. 23 of this year. Copies will be available for purchase.

Their 28-page picture book featuring 27 illustrations and several photographs is about a dog that is experiencing the joy of having his family at home due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The festival will be the first time the two authors will be together in-person since celebrating Gorg's birthday in July.

The two became friends while students at Bloomsburg University. Gorg graduated in 2015 with a bachelor’s degree in English Literature and has been working as a paralegal at Ross Law in Coudersport ever since.

Peachey graduated in 2016 with a bachelor's degree in Education and English and went on to earn a master’s degree in Literacy in 2020 at Wilkes University in Wilkes-Barre. She teaches high school and middle school English for the Southern Columbia Area School District in Catawissa.

“I went to work on a Thursday in March but wasn’t allowed to return on Friday, because of Governor Wolf’s statewide shutdown of all nonessential businesses to contain the spread of COVID-19,” said Gorg.

“Katie and I were both home due to the quarantine. Within about a week, we had decided to write a book together that would give comfort during an uncomfortable time. That organically led to dogs and what they always do – provide comfort – something we felt everyone needed, especially in the face of the pandemic.”

Their main character, a dog they named Toby, tells the story. “He is loosely based on Ginger, a friend’s Llewellin Setter. The two of us used a photo of Ginger for inspiration," Gorg said.

On the back cover are these words: "This story is an uplifting perspective of isolation offered through the lens of a family's dog who is thrilled, confused, and filled with love when he realizes his family is staying home with him. It explores the new normal that so many families have experienced during the global pandemic. It offers humor, human connection, and hope for readers, young and old. This piece captures a time that is unique in circumstances but universal in nature. From making dance videos to building toilet paper forts, our dog's family is experiencing something that we all have, binding us with this shared -- and somehow positive, if you ask the dog -- moment in history.

Under the photo of Ginger on the first page the authors wrote: "This book is dedicated to all the pets in our lives, who daily make our lives fuller, muddier and more joyful. This book is also for the families out there who have found beauty in the chaos and grown stronger together. This book is for you."

“Google Docs allowed Katie and I to write on the same page at the same time so we would go back and forth,” said Gorg. She had released her first self-published book in 2018 through Amazon’s publishing platform and was familiar with the process.

"I was delighted when Logan, my great niece, asked me in April to illustrate their book," said Richar. "They told me they wanted a Llewellin Setter so I googled it, found a photo and went from there." Richar's illustrations are done in watercolor with some outlining in ink. “I have been involved in art my entire life and normally do watercolor landscapes," said Richar, a retired insurance professional who had worked and lived in Galeton.

“Until Sept. 26 when we are in Galeton, the only place people can buy our book is on Amazon,” said Gorg.


Johnsonburg, Pa. – President Jim Pennington, Jr. is pleased to announce this year’s Fall 2020 winners of the statewide September Song Dog Slam run by the Rolfe Beagle Club from 9/2 through 9/12.

John Guide of Virginia harvested two coyotes on the morning of 9/4. John’s two coyotes were the most brought in by a single hunter. All of the other coyote entries were single harvests.

Nick Keller of Cameron County registered three crows, which were the most crows harvested by any of the hunters registered in the crow portion of the September Song Dog Slam.

Spike Wilson and Duane Bullers shared the pot for the largest female harvested during the September Song Dog Slam. Spike harvested a 29.4 # female on 9/6 in Elk County. Duane Bullers harvested a 29.4 # female on 9/10 on the Elk/Jefferson County border. Both hunters were hunting private land.

Gordon Skrzypek claimed the prize for the largest coyote harvested with his 33.8 # coyote on 9/10.

Congratulations to all the successful hunters.

The Rolfe Beagle Club is anticipating once again hosting their winter coyote and fox hunting contest on two weekends in February of 2021 – 2/12-14, and 2/19-21. These two weekends cover the same timeframe as the Mosquito Creek and Sinnemahoning Hunts, so huntervationists can register for several hunts at the same timeframe

Bolivar-Richburg School Reports Covid-19 Virus; To Close Monday For Clean-Up

Bolivar-Richburg Central School District

September 19, 2020
Dear Bolivar-Richburg CSD Parents/Guardians:

We are writing to notify you that we have been informed by the Allegany County Department of Health that a student(s) or staff member(s) has been diagnosed with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). 

This person was on school premises and did have direct exposure with other members of our school community. As a school district our number one priority is the health and safety of all our students and staff. We will be updating parents and staff via the school website, global connect calls, and social media as we learn more information.

The Bolivar-Richburg Central School District will be closed Monday September 21, 2020 to allow our custodial staff to deep-clean the buildings prior to returning to regular in-person instruction on Tuesday, September 22, 2020.

We are working closely with the Allegany County Health Department to identify anyone who had close contact with the person to determine if they might have been exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19. If you or your child are identified as having been potentially exposed, the Allegany County Health Department will contact you to ask that you please stay home and monitor for symptoms of cough, shortness of breath, or a temperature higher than 100.4F, and practice social distancing for 14 days from your last contact. If you are not contacted by the health department, you do not need to stay home or exclude yourself from activities at this time.

Parents should continue to monitor their child’s health and the health of their families for COVID-19 symptoms. Children with COVID-19 generally have mild, cold-like symptoms, such as fever, runny nose, and cough. Vomiting and diarrhea have also been reported in some children. Children with certain underlying medical conditions, such as chronic lung disease or moderate to severe asthma, serious heart conditions, or weak immune systems, might be at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19. Contact your child's healthcare provider regarding any concerns.

People without symptoms do not need to seek care or be tested. Those who become ill should contact their healthcare provider. Their doctor, in consultation with public health officials, will determine appropriate care and whether testing is necessary. If your child has been exposed to or diagnosed with COVID-19, please report this to your school. This information will be kept confidential.

Schools continue to utilize Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations on Reopening Guidance for Cleaning and Disinfecting Public Spaces, to reduce viral transmission and keep our children and school personnel healthy and safe.

Dean C. Heggenstaller of, Galeton, PA

Dean C. Heggenstaller 1955-2020

Dean went to rest with his parents on September 12, 2020. 

He was born on July 3rd, 1955 in Jersey Shore, Pennsylvania. He grew up in the small town of Galeton, Pa on his family farm. The youngest of three boys, Dean, loved his mama, the outdoors, and the farm. 

U.S. Air Force Veteran
He had many fond memories of his childhood adventures in the mountains. After graduating from Galeton High School, he enlisted in the Air Force where he spent most of his adult life serving his country and was a decorated officer. 

Dean was a patriot until the end, firmly believing in his country and advocating for veterans. In his later years Dean was involved in clubs like the Masons and very much enjoyed cooking for meetings and mentoring new members. He was also a lifelong member of the VFW and worked with the young veterans he met there. 

Dean was a loving father, grandfather, and a loyal friend. Although Dean loved to complain, he secretly loved to help others and would give others the shirt off his back if they needed it. Dean liked giving so much, he often forgot whom he gave things to and would promise the same thing to multiple people. Those of us that knew him, shook our head at this trait but loved his kind heart. Dean had many talents such as woodworking and had a very mechanical mind, there was nothing he couldn’t fix. 

He was an avid storyteller and could spin you magical stories with little effort. We will all miss shooting guns with him. He taught all his children how to shoot guns as children. He has installed a love of guns in all of us and had tons of knowledge on just about anything you could think of. 

He enjoyed driving cross country on his motorcycle and attending concerts. Those of us who knew him will forever think of him when watching the movie Big Fish, the history channel, and when we see the mountain areas that were his home. 

Dean was predeceased by his parents Howard and Katie Heggenstaller. 

He was survived by his brothers Kenneth and Bruce Heggenstaller. His children Charity Ruiz, Chaste and Chaz Williams, Anthony and Julieanne Heggenstaller, and 10 grandchildren. Also surviving is the love of his life, Mary Beth Roche and stepchildren Michael Roche and Rochelle and Chris Danielles. He will forever live on in our hearts. Arrangements have been entrusted to the Hess Funeral Home & Cremation Service, Galeton.

A. Jack Fuller, 84, of Middlebury Center, PA

A. Jack Fuller

A. Jack Fuller, 84, of Middlebury Center passed away Friday, September 18, 2020, while working on his farm, as he would have wished. 

Born May 25, 1936, at the home in Middlebury Center where he died, to Ira W. and Rachel (Goodwin) Fuller, he went to school, lived and worked his entire life in Tioga County. 

In his younger days, Jack was involved in the Future Farmers of America, and he thoroughly enjoyed his work farming in this area. He had a great affinity for working with horses, started driving a team on the farm at the age of seven, and was disappointed when that was no longer a part of his life. He loved his family, especially his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and always enjoyed singing, whether in the church, or alone on his tractor while he worked.

Jack is survived by two daughters: Bethany (Dan) Bower of Tioga and Lisa (Tom) Sterling of Tioga; four grandchildren: Amy (Dana) Coots of Tioga, Michael (Krista) Bower of Tioga, Rachel Sterling of Pittsburgh, and Chelsea Sterling of San Diego, CA. 

 He was preceded in death by his parents, two wives: Sylvia (Schneider) Fuller and Jean (Wildrick) Fuller, a daughter Dawn Michelle Fuller, and his six siblings.

In accordance with Jack’s wishes the family has arranged a private funeral service at the Tussey-Mosher Funeral Home 139 Main Street Wellsboro, PA with burial in the Middlebury-Union Cemetery. Those wishing to make a donation in his memory are encouraged to remember the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation 4550 Montgomery Ave.Suite 1100 N. Bethesda, MD 20814 or on line at 

To share a memory or condolence with his family, visit And while sympathy is appreciated, Jack’s family is reassured by the understanding that he is resting in the arms of Jesus.
