Kane Dispatched for Crash with Entrapment

At 11: 45 PM on Saturday, 858 Burning Well Road. Vehicle over embankment. Female heavily entrapped. Wilcox Fire Rescue dispatched to assist with extrication. Mt. Jewett dispatched for traffic control and set up landing zone.

00:06 hours - 05/02/2021
Elk Co 6 was dispatched for 1 engine mutual aid assist with McKean Station 5 and EmergyCare MA5 to the area of 858 Burning Well Road in Wetmore Twp (McKean County).
1 vehicle accident over the embankment into the trees with reported 1 male patient heavily entrapped under the dash of the truck. All 3 Chiefs responded along with Engine 61 and Rescue 611 to the scene. 
Once on scene crews from both Kane and Wilcox worked with the Jaws of Life, Cutters and Hydraulic Rams to free the trapped patient. Due to the nature of the entrapment EMS could not do a good patient assessment until he was freed from the truck. The patient was conscious and talking to crews during the entire extrication which took about 15 minutes to complete. 
Once the patient was successfully extricated and in the care of EMS it was determined that he needed to be flown to the Trauma Center for treatment. Rescue 611 was moved to the intersection of Route 219 and Burning Well Road to set up an LZ for Stat MedEvac 12 with a 17 minute eta. Upon Rescue 612 getting to the intersection it was determined that due to High Tension Wires that the LZ would not be appropriate. It was decided by Captain 611 T.Lehman that the next best location for an LZ would be the Wilcox Baseball field. 
Operations were moved to Wilcox and the LZ was setup and secured for Stat to land. Stat 12 landed approximately 18 minutes later and the crew assisted by MA5 got the patient secured and loaded into the helicopter. The patient was transferred to the Trauma Center and all ems and fire units were placed back in service.
This call is just another example of great cooperation between multiple agencies and multiple counties dispatch centers for a good outcome for the patient.

2021-22 MIGRATORY BIRD SEASONS SET Atlantic Population of Canada geese see drop in regular season bag limit.

Pennsylvania’s 2021-22 migratory game bird seasons have been set.  

Annual migratory game bird seasons are selected by states from frameworks established by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS). Game Commission selections were made after reviewing last year’s hunter harvests, population survey data and public input.

There is one significant change to Pennsylvania waterfowl seasons this year, said Wildlife Operations Division Chief Ian Gregg. The change drops the bag limit during the regular season in the Atlantic Population (AP) goose zone to one Canada goose a day. “This change is necessary to reduce harvest rates to a level that will allow for growth of this migratory Canada goose population” Gregg said. The population declined significantly and experienced a near total reproductive failure in 2018. The lowered bag limit should allow AP Canada goose populations to rebound.

PennDOT Shares Draft Transportation Funding Study for Public Review, Comment Virtual public meeting available until June 1

Harrisburg, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is hosting an on-demand virtual public meeting and comment period for a Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) study exploring sustainable transportation funding options. The public meeting is accessible online at all hours of the day through June 1, 2021, at

The PEL study, in support of the PennDOT Pathways program, is being conducted to identify near- and long-term alternative funding solutions and establish a methodology for their evaluation.

In February, PennDOT announced candidate bridge projects being considered as a part of the Major Bridge Public-Private Partnership (P3) Initiative. This initiative, the first of the PennDOT Pathways Program, was formed in response to one of the early findings of the PEL study – that tolling of major bridges in need of replacement or rehabilitation is a potentially viable near-term funding solution. The draft PEL study report is currently available for review and comment and identifies additional medium- to long-term funding alternatives that could be considered for implementation.

PennDOT encourages the public to review the materials presented in the virtual meeting and to provide comments, which will be accepted throughout the duration of the meeting. Online comments can be submitted directly from the meeting website or via other comment submission methods, including:

Hotline: 717-325-6129
For more information about the PennDOT Pathways program, visit

The Transportation Revenue Options Commission (TROC), which was established by Governor Tom Wolf’s Executive Order on March 12, today received a briefing on the draft PEL study. When completed, the final PEL study will be provided to the TROC.

PennDOT will make all reasonable modifications to policies, programs, and documents to ensure that people with disabilities and those with limited English proficiency have an equal opportunity to enjoy all of its programs, services, and activities. In accordance with Governor Tom Wolf's COVID-19 mitigation efforts, the Virtual Public Meeting will be held online only.

To request assistance to participate in the virtual public meeting or review the PEL study, please contact PennDOT's Communications Office by emailing or calling 717-783-8800 from 8:30 AM – 4:00 PM. PennDOT will not place a surcharge on an individual with a disability or those with limited English proficiency to cover the costs of providing auxiliary aids/services or reasonable modifications of policy. If you have other questions or challenges, please contact PennDOT's Bureau of Equal Opportunity to request help by emailing or calling 1-800-468-4201; TTY (711).

Eugene Sidney VanGorder, 69, Port Allegany, PA

Eugene Sidney VanGorder

In early April 2021, Gene stood at the head of the family table with his five children, four grandchildren, and beloved wife surrounding him as he led them to bless the meal. He began the prayer as he did most, and those loved ones around the table leaned in to hear his quiet but eager and sincere words, “Dear Heavenly Father.” Late into the evening, the family laughed and talked across the table as they played and replayed hands of Pinochle, which they had done so many times before. 

Eugene Sidney VanGorder, a devoted husband, father, grandfather, pastor, veteran, and friend, died April 29, 2021. 

He contracted COVID which led to a devastating stroke that ultimately ended his life. 

Eugene, Gene to most, died months before a planned 70th birthday celebration for which he requested a firework display and full family attendance. Some might associate such a grand party with a boisterous man, but Gene was well known for his gentle spirit, his curious disposition, and his steadfast commitment to his family. He loved to be outside and was an avid hunter. He was recently at work on a new, elaborate tree stand on the family’s property to rival his previous build. He proudly taught all of his children how to hunt, fish, and be industrious with their labors. 

Gene graduated from Port Allegany High School with the class of 1970. He enlisted to fight in the

Vietnam War Veteran

Vietnam War and served his country with dignity and bravery for two and a half years in the United States Navy. 

Upon his return, he was a driller in the gas and oil field industry until his retirement in 1990. 

Most importantly, Gene loved Jesus and committed his efforts and his attention to knowing God and sharing His love with others. Gene was saved at a Billy Graham service in 1968 and since then, the abundance of joy that Gene found in his relationship with Jesus overflowed into his family and community. His family rejoices that Gene now resides in Heaven, where he can finally ask the deep, philosophical questions that so occupied his earthly conversations. 

He is survived by his adoring wife, Sally Anne, of 47 years. Eugene and Sally shared a playful and adventurous love and faced adversity together without fear, assured by their faith. 

He is survived by his five children, whom he loved fiercely and counseled wisely. They are Joshua R. (Nyasia) VanGorder, of Port Allegany, Brandy L. (Brad) Scott, of Meadville, Tammy S. (Robert) VanGorder of Smethport, David J. (Megan) VanGorder or DeKalb, Illinois, and Gerritt S. VanGorder, of Port Allegany. He is also survived by his sisters Sharon (Rick) Swanson of Kersey, PA and Sandy Urbanick of Fernley, NV; his brother, Stanley VanGorder of Indaina. PA; and his half-brother, Rick Valentine of Minnesota.. 

He is preceded in death by his parents, Albert and Lois Hardy VanGorder, and his brother, Gordy. 

Friends will be received from 6-8 p.m. Sunday in the Birch Grove Mennonite Church, Port Alllegany. Masks will be provided. A private funeral service will be held on Monday, May 3, 2021, at 11 a.m. in the Birch Grove Mennonite Church, with Rev. Dale Detweiller, pastor, officiating.  Burial will be in Annin Creek Cemetery, Turtlepoint, PA. He left an indelible mark on his family, friends, and church community. 

Memorials can be directed to Gene’s church, Birch Grove Mennonite Church, Two Mile Road, Port Allegany, Pennsylvania. 

Funeral arrangements are under the direction of the Switzer Funeral Home, Port Allegany. Condolences can be made @www.switzerfuneralhome.  Anyone wishing to see the funeral service can check back at this obituary for an internet address.

Galeton Weather Report For April 2021

April showers bring May flowers and get the lawn mowers out of storage.  The month started out cold with a little snow on the hills and 16 degrees in the morning of the 2nd the 3rd. It then became sunny  and nice.  It was a fairly typical April with cool mornings and off and on showers. We actually had below normal rainfall until the 29th and 30th.

Average rain and melted snow is 3.43" and that is exactly what we had for the month. Pine Creek looks back to normal for this time of year.  The average high for the month is 54 degrees and the average low is 31 degrees.

In 2020 I measured 4.33" of rain and melted precipitation and 9.7" of snow. This year we had 3.43" and 0.09" of snow.  We had 14 foggy mornings, ice pellets on two mornings, one thunderstorm and one damaging wind event.
