HARRISBURG, Pa (July 10) – With heavy rain and winds affecting eastern portions of Pennsylvania due to Tropical Storm Fay, the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) encourages boaters to use added caution on and around the water this weekend and throughout the hurricane season.
“The key to staying safe is to plan ahead,” said Ryan Walt, PFBC Boating and Watercraft Safety Manager. “Check the forecast before you head out and be aware that heavy rains can lead to immediate flash flooding and cause water to rise to unsafe levels for several days following a storm. If there is any question about the safety of your boating trip due to weather, don’t go.”

In addition to areas experiencing severe weather, boaters should be aware that storm impacts can also carry downstream to waterways that did not experience any precipitation. Boaters, especially paddlers on canoes and kayaks, should refrain from entering high, fast-moving, and muddy water that offers low visibility and can prevent operators from seeing submerged obstacles like large rocks, downed tree limbs, and other debris.

Boaters who are considering heading out onto the water should familiarize themselves with the waterway in advance. Map out your trip and create a float plan that includes several places you can stop along the way for a break, check the local forecast, and if needed, ride out a passing storm. Heavy winds can make paddling more difficult when you are trying to get yourself off the water.

“Wear a life jacket,” added Walt. “Unfortunately, we have recorded several boating-related fatalities this summer, and none of the victims were wearing life jackets. We have seen these tragedies happen in even the most favorable of conditions, so boaters should take even stronger precautions around periods of inclement weather.”

According to PFBC boating accident reports, roughly 80% of all boating fatalities occur annually because boaters were not wearing life jackets. Boaters can add an extra layer of protection by investing in a portable NOAA weather radio. The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1 through November 30.

To learn more about boating in Pennsylvania , including complete rules and regulations, registration and title information, how to find great places to boat near you, how file a boating accident report and answers to other frequently asked questions (FAQs), visit the Boating Basics page on the PFBC website.

The Tioga County Lyme Disease Support Group will not meet on the third Thursday of each month until further notice, according to Co-leaders Luke Dunham and Thomas Putnam. "We have canceled all upcoming support group meetings, including the one on Thursday, July 16, " said Dunham.

The group has been holding meetings that are free and open to the public since January of 2018. They did not meet this March, April or May due to the coronavirus outbreak and the subsequent stay-at-home and social distancing guidelines initiated by Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf to slow the spread of COVID-19. The June meeting was held after Tioga County went into the green phase of Gov. Wolf's reopening plan.

"Both Thomas and I are also the Tioga County regional co-leaders for the Pennsylvania Lyme Resource Network," Dunham said. "After discussing the ongoing coronavirus crisis with the network, we decided against holding indoor meetings for the time being," Dunham said. "We will publicly announce when the support group will begin meeting again."

The Pennsylvania Resource Network is a non-profit 501©(3) organization that has been the resource for Lyme disease prevention, education, patient support and advocacy. The network was founded in 2012 by individuals with personal experiences with Lyme, Lyme co-infections and other tick-borne diseases, which can be contracted from a tick bite at the same time as Lyme.

The network helps Pennsylvanians navigate Lyme and other tick-borne illnesses and also supports regional and independent all-volunteer Lyme support groups across the state that hold local meetings to provide support, education, and resources to their local communities.

Both Dunham and Putnam have been diagnosed with chronic Lyme disease and live in the Wellsboro area. Those with questions about Lyme are welcome to contact either one by email at or by calling Putnam at 570-439-2000.

Tri-County to hold annual meeting virtually

To protect the health and safety of its members and employees during the COVID-19 pandemic, Tri-County Rural Electric Cooperative will be conducting its 84th annual meeting virtually this month instead of holding its traditional in-person annual meeting and member appreciation event.

The annual meeting and member appreciation day had been scheduled to take place July 28 during the Troy Fair at Alparon Park. Out of an abundance of caution, the co-op’s board of directors opted to cancel the public gathering and, instead, hold the annual meeting virtually. Subsequent to the board’s decision, fair officials announced the cancellation of this year’s Troy Fair.

Tri-County’s virtual annual meeting will take place Wednesday, July 29, at 1 p.m. Co-op members will be able to access the virtual meeting via the Tri-County website,, as well as through the co-op’s Facebook page.

The virtual meeting will feature updates about Tri-County and the progress of its broadband internet project from Tri-County President & CEO Craig Eccher and board Chairman Matthew Whiting, approval of routine annual reports and the 2019 annual meeting minutes, as well as announcement of director election results.

Three incumbent board members, Nicholas Reitter of Genesee, Matthew S. Whiting of Lawrenceville, and Lowell W. Geiser of Germania, are running for re-election in an uncontested race this year.

Tri-County mailed director election ballots to members residing in eligible voting districts last month. Members in voting districts 3, 5 and 9 have the option to vote using mail-in ballots, online, or in person at the Tri-County REC headquarters building in Mansfield. Members participating in online voting have until noon on Tuesday, July 21, to cast their ballot. If voting by mail, ballots must be received no later than July 21. In-person voting at the cooperative office will remain open until 4 p.m. Tuesday, July 28.

“We are disappointed that we will not be able to meet in person with our members at the Troy Fair this year,” Eccher said. “In keeping with our efforts to promote a culture of safety at the cooperative, we felt it was prudent to forego our traditional in-person annual meeting and member appreciate day. We appreciate our members’ understanding and patience during these challenging times and look forward to gathering again someday soon.”

My Vote to Protect Local Jobs

Wednesday’s vote on House Bill 2025 was as much about protecting you from an unaccountable executive as it was about protecting jobs in key local industries.

Please click here to read my explanation for voting to approve this key piece of legislation.

Update on House Resolution 836

While there is disagreement on the state Supreme Court's decision regarding House Resolution 836, that decision must be respected.

Gov. Tom Wolf contended the legislation was never sent to him for consideration. Now it has been.

House Resolution 836 now sits on the governor's desk and is his to sign or veto. Signing it would terminate the COVID-19 Emergency Declaration while vetoing it would keep it in place.

Gov. Wolf, it's your call.

Hunters, It’s Time!!

Pennsylvania residents may purchase their 2020-21 antlerless deer licenses beginning this Monday, July 13. Only hunters who have already purchased their 2020-21 general license may apply. If you have not done so, please click here.

Applications are accepted by mail only using an official pink envelope, which ordinarily is provided when a general hunting license is purchased. Resident applicants need to make checks and money orders payable to “County Treasurer” for $6.90 for each license they seek.

In most parts of the state, hunters are limited to purchasing a total of three antlerless licenses.

Nonresidents may submit their first applications a week later, beginning Monday, July 20.

CARES Cares about Emergency Responders

Fire, Rescue and EMS companies may now apply for grants through the COVID-19 Crisis Fire Company and Emergency Medical Services (FCEMS) Grant Program through the Office of the State Fire Commissioner.

These funds come from the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act and are to be used to supplement operational expenses incurred by the lack of opportunities for fundraising and inability to create revenue due to compliance with measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Applications will be accepted until Friday, Aug. 7, at 4 p.m. Please click here to register.

Attention Veterans

We’re resuming our monthly veterans outreach service; however, it is being done by appointment only.

The first Monday of each month, a representative from the American Legion visits my district offices to discuss issues such as pensions, compensation, educational opportunities and health care. Veterans do not need to be a member of the American Legion in order to take advantage of this service.

If you would like to make an appointment for the Monday, Aug. 4 meeting in my DuBois district office, please call 814-375-4688.

JULY 7, 2020

The regular meeting of the Galeton Borough Authority was held this date in the Borough Office with the following members present: Tony Adami, BJ Lowther, Tom Smith and Joe Cimino. Not present was George Bowen.

Others present were Solicitor-Mike Plummer and Authority Secy-Andrea Caracciolo.

Chairman Adami called the meeting to order at 5:00 PM followed by the Pledge to the Flag.


A motion was made by BJ Lowther, seconded by Joe Cimino approving the 5/5/20 minutes as presented. All were in favor, motion carried.


Joe told the Board that we are nearing Stage 1 of the Drought Contingency Ordinance. If we do not receive rain in the next couple weeks we will be in Stage 1.

Tony told the Board that Ed Brown of Larson Design has revised the Corrective Action Plan for the Consent Order as advised by DEP. It was sent in and accepted.

Joe discussed the matter of when residents have water leaks on their service lines that it should be required to use Copper Tubing Size (CTS) pipe when repairing or replacing so that it makes it easier for the crew to repair and connect to our lines. He also suggested that a time limit should be set to get the leak repaired. The Authority agreed and Mike Plummer is going to present it to the Borough to amend the ordinance with these revisions.

It was discussed that it is time to start looking into getting the transmission line replaced at the Wetmore.

The 2020 CDBG entitlement grant is now open. Dave Walters is going to be contacted to see if we should apply for the sewer plant upgrade.


Joe told Board that the Clarifier tank has been repaired and is operating again. He and Tom also agree and discussed with the rest of the Board that piping needs replaced at the sewer plant and the overflow meter needs replaced. They feel these two items are more important to get upgraded before a lot of the other items in the Phases. It will be discussed with Dave Walters.

Joe is to get quotes on fixing the overflow meter for the next meeting.

The bar screen is supposed to be upgraded by the end of July. All the parts are in and at the sewer plant just waiting on the company to come in to install them.

The secretary told the Authority that she is looking into a system to be able to accept credit/debit cards for water and sewer payments. They all agreed that is was a good idea.

The Board asked the secretary how the automated phone system is working. It was used once and worked very well with the correct telephone numbers that we have on file.


A motion was made by BJ Lowther, seconded by Joe Cimino to adjourn. All were in favor, motion carried. The meeting adjourned at 5:49 PM. The next regular meeting is scheduled for September 1, 2020.
