The McKean County Mosquito Control Program will be conducting a truck mounted ultra-low volume (ULV) mosquito control operation

The McKean County Mosquito Control Program will be conducting a truck mounted ultra-low volume (ULV) mosquito control operation in Annin Township, Keating Township, Otto Township, Eldred Township, Liberty Township Port Allegany Borough and Eldred Borough, McKean County.  Residential and recreational areas will be sprayed for adult mosquitoes using Biomist3+15, applied at a rate of .62 oz per acre.  This product is designed to provide quick knockdown and effective control of adult nuisance mosquitos.  The control work will begin late evening Sunday Aug 8th, Monday Aug 9, Tuesday Aug 10th with rain dates of Wednesday Aug 11h and Thursday Aug 12th.  Weather conditions, surveillance data, and other unexpected events could delay or cancel this spray operation.  The staging area for spraying is Eldred Memorial Park.
The truck mounted ULV spray will be conducted by McKean Environmental Solutions LLC BU# 13152 in cooperation with the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection.  Please call 814-598-3652 if you have any questions or concerns.

Many mosquito problems in your neighborhood are likely to come from water-filled containers that you, the resident, can help to eliminate. All mosquitoes require water in which to breed. Be sure to drain any standing water around your house.
•       Dispose of any tires. Tires can breed thousands of mosquitoes.
•       Drill holes in the bottom of recycling containers.
•       Clear roof gutters of debris.
•       Clean pet water dishes regularly.
•       Check and empty children’s toys.
•       Repair leaky outdoor faucets.
•       Change the water in bird baths at least once a week.
•       Canoes and other boats should be turned over.
•       Avoid water collecting on pool covers.
•       Empty water collected in tarps around the yard or on woodpiles.
•       Plug tree holes.
•       Even the smallest of containers that can collect water can breed hundreds to thousands of mosquitoes. They don’t need much water to lay their eggs. (bottles, barrels, buckets, overturned garbage can lids, etc.)

Potter County History Made: First Jail Board, First Female Warden


 Potter County Today

August 7th, 2021

History was made on Friday in two ways. Not only did the Potter County Jail Board of Inspectors hold its inaugural meeting, the board installed the first female jail warden in county history. 

Angela Milford, who has served as a corrections officer and deputy warden for 28 years, was unanimously appointed by Jail Board members (from left) Glenn Drake, Andy Watson, Paul Heimel, Nancy Grupp, Barry Hayman and Stephen Minor. 

Also during the organizational meeting, members unanimously elected Commissioner Heimel as chair, Sheriff Drake as vice chair, Commissioner Grupp as secretary, and Commissioner Hayman as controller. 

A separate unanimous vote established the chief clerk of Potter County, currently Jessica Giebel, as administrator, a non-voting position that is subject to concurrence by the Board of Commissioners. 

Jail Board meetings will be held at 1 pm on the first Friday of each month in the Gunzburger Building and are open to the public. County Solicitor Tom Shaffer has been advising the commissioners on legal and procedural matters.

Potter had been one of just two counties in the state that still required its elected sheriff to serve in a dual role as jail warden. In changing to a Jail Board system the commissioners said, “The sheriff-as-warden system harkens back to an era when operating a jail was geared toward punishment, confinement and removing menaces from society. That system was not designed to administer state-mandated services such as mental health/addiction treatment and other changes in the corrections field.” 

McKean is now the only other Pennsylvania county in which the sheriff is also required to serve as jail warden.

Anthony "Tony" Viglione, 78, of 1838 Treasure Lake, DuBois, PA

Anthony "Tony" Viglione

Anthony "Tony" Viglione, 78, of 1838 Treasure Lake, DuBois, PA, died Tuesday, August 3, 2021, at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh following a lengthy illness.

He was born May 22, 1943, in Troia, Italy, son of the late John and Maria (Lamanaco) Viglione.

He married Maureen Benigni on June 1, 1968, she survives.

He resided in Ridgway from 1956-2009 and in DuBois from 2009 until the present. He was a member of St. Michael Archangel Catholic Church in DuBois and St. Leo Catholic Church in Ridgway. He served on the boards of Penn Highlands DuBois, S&T Bank, and

Amy National Guard

Penn State DuBois. 

He was a member of the Sons of Italy, the Lions, and the Elks. He was a graduate of Elk County Catholic High School and served in the Army National Guard. 

He was the owner of PC Systems in Ridgway for 20 years.

He is survived by his wife, Maureen Viglione, of DuBois, PA; three children: Nikki (Travis) Williams of Pittsburgh, PA, Tricia (Jason) Brigger of DuBois, PA, and Garret Viglione of Pittsburgh, PA; nine grandchildren: Anthony Williams, Lucia Williams, Sofia Williams, Mario Williams, Gino Williams, Bruno Williams, Isaac Brigger, Lidia Brigger, and Roman Brigger; two brothers, Michael Viglione of Grantville, PA and Johnny Viglione of Ridgway; one sister, Carmela Bonghi of Ridgway; and several nieces and nephews. We cannot leave out his love for his son Garret's dog, Rocco. Rocco was Tony's constant companion while visiting Pittsburgh.

He was preceded in death by his parents; two sisters-in-law, Donna Viglione and Deborah Dillon; and three brothers-in-law: John Bonghi, Thomas Pauline and Bruce Heigel.

Tony came to America in 1956 on a boat with his family. Together they had a total of three bags!

To say he succeeded in living the American dream is an understatement. In his younger years, he worked many jobs to help support his family and also enjoyed many nights at the bowling alley and Aiello's cafe. He owned and ran two successful retail businesses, before diving into the powdered metal industry. He retired in 1999, but couldn't sit still, so then purchased his current business PC Systems.

Tony loved to golf. He spent many, many years as a member of the Ridgway Country Club and had endless memories there with friends and with his wife and children. In recent years, he enjoyed golfing at his place in Florida with friends and golfing at Treasure Lake and Nevillewood Country Club. He especially loved golfing with his grandsons.

However, nothing defines Tony more than his pride and love for his family. He was the center of the entire family and was happiest when everyone was together. His love for Maureen was unparalleled and his love for his kids and grandchildren was worn on his face to everyone he met.

From Italy, Tony brought tradition, strength and love of family and he shared it with everyone. He has created a beautiful legacy that spans all across the world.

A Mass of Christian Burial for Anthony Viglione will be celebrated at St. Leo Catholic Church on Monday, August 9, 2021, at 11 a.m. Officiating will be Fr. William Laska, pastor of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Brookville. Burial will be at St. Leo Cemetery. Friends will be received at the Thompson Funeral Home in Ridgway on Sunday from 2-5 p.m.

Memorials, if desired can be made to: GI 21 Foundation, PO BOX 507, Saxonburg, PA 16056.

Louisianans, Facing Pandemic’s Worst, Rush for Vaccines

You can do something about it. That’s the lesson being learned by Louisianans, especially younger people afraid of COVID-19’s delta variant and lately the lambda strain that’s ravaged Peru. 

The New York Times reports that vaccinations have quadrupled since the state’s hospitals began to overflow with virus victims. But it’s also a hot spot for pandemic politics that oppose prevention measures and exaggerate the risks of vaccination. 

With America’s highest infection rate, it’s “a miserable place to be,” admits Gov. John Bel Edwards, who’s revived indoor masking requirements and implied that his constituents’ heavily “pro-life” sentiment, which he shares, should include lives threatened by the coronavirus. (Sources: NYT, WBRZ)

Russell Edwin Counts of 51 Counts Road in Kane, PA

Russell Edwin Counts

Russell Edwin Counts of 51 Counts Road in Kane, PA died on Wednesday (Aug. 4, 2021) at his home surrounded by family after a lengthy battle with cancer. 

He was born Jan. 27, 1947 in Bradford, to Charley G. and Zora M. Bailey Counts. He grew up in the Windy City/James City area and became famous at the age of 8 while checking traps with his brother Dan and sister Jane. Russ decided to take a "short cut" home on his own and became lost in the wintry woods. Over 100 volunteers combed the area and he was found about 5 hours later in a hollow log. (Russ' sense of direction never improved and his children suffered from many "short cuts" on weekly Sunday hikes on the North Country Trail.) 

Russ graduated from Kane High School in 1964 and joined the USMC in 1966. He served in Vietnam with the 1st Amphibian Tractor Battalion aka AmGrunts, despite his mother's

Vietnam War Veteran

disapproval. During a 2-day battle in July 1967, known as Operation Hickory II, he was seriously injured by mortar fragments. For his military service he was awarded the Purple Heart with 1 Gold Star, the National Defense Service Medal, the Vietnam Service Medal with 1 Star, the Presidential Unit Citation, and the Vietnam Citation Medal. 

On Sept. 13, 1969, he married RoseAnn Rolick of Kane. He attended the University of Pittsburgh for Civil Engineering and upon graduating, began working at the papermill in Johnsonburg as a draftsman. He worked there until he retired as the senior project engineer. In his younger years he would ride his bicycle to and from work during the summer months, often making a pitstop at a few bars on the way home. 

He was a member of the Kane Lions Club for years and could often be found in the carney wagon covered in cotton candy or eating popcorn. He was a member of the Kane VFW and served as past Commander and Quartermaster. He was a former Little League baseball coach and umpire for many years and attended all of his daughter's dance recitals, track meets and basketball games and all of his son's baseball games and wrestling matches. Although, many times he would drive right past the high school (and his kids) on his way home from the papermill and forget to stop and pick them up after practice. 

In addition to being the best dad in the world, he was also the world's greatest grandpa. He taught both of his grandsons how to hunt, fish, play baseball, and what channel Glenn Beck was on. When his youngest grandson decided to play hockey, he became a hockey fan even though he thought it was a Canadian sport. At his last Army vs Navy game Russ wore an Army hat as painful as it was, simply because his eldest grandson was in the Army. (However, he did root for Navy.) 

Russ loved all genres of music and in his younger days could be found dancing wherever there was a tune playing, usually doing his signature moves of the "fist jab" or the "twist", which according to local legend, he won many contests for at the Kane YMCA. In his later years he could often be found on his front porch smoking a cigar, drinking a cold Straub, and listening to anything from Patsy Cline to AC/DC. 

He enjoyed the company of his faithful canine companion Stella. 

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife RoseAnn, his son Russell A. Counts, and a foster brother, Charles Pierce. He is survived by his daughter Heather (Kevin) Ritts of Mount Jewett; his grandchildren, Erica Long of Kings Bay, Ga., SPC Kevin Long of Fort Wainwright, Alaska, and Dominic Ritts of Mount Jewett; his brothers, Dan (Bonnie) Counts of Coudersport and Gary Counts of Panama, N.Y.; his sisters, Jane (Matt) Gayley of Kane and Diana (Larry) Grosch of Newark, Ohio, his in-laws: Mitz Lindquist and Joseph A. Rolick, both of Kane, and many special nieces and nephews. 

Friends may call from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 7, 2021, at the Ronald McDonald II Funeral Home Inc., 103 S. Fraley St., Kane, PA 16735. Funeral services will be held at 1 p.m. in the funeral home with the Rev. Calvin Cook, pastor of the First United Methodist Church, Kane, officiating. Burial will be in St. Callistus Cemetery. 

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donating in Russ' memory to the "Memorial Point at Evergreen Park Project, VFW King David Post 1132, c/o Hamlin Bank, 34 Fraley St., Kane, PA 16735, and put in the memo "Memorial Point at Evergreen Park;" or to "Friends of Twin Lakes ANF, c/o Laurie Storrar, Treasurer, PO Box 333, Wilcox PA 15870-0235.

FRIDAY Update: Recent Spike In Local COVID Cases

Potter County Today
August 6th, 2021

Most recent Pa. Health Department reports show 10 more COVID-19 coronavirus cases diagnosed in Potter County between Wednesday and Thursday. There is now an “active” case count of 18 in the county, according to DOH. 

Breakdown is Ulysses area, 6; Shinglehouse, 3; Cross Fork, Coudersport and Austin, 2 each; and Galeton, Genesee and Harrison Township, 1 each. DOH considers a case to be active, and the victim contagious, if a positive test result occurred over the past 14 days.

Since the pandemic was declared, some 1,243 county residents have been infected and there have been 25 COVID-related deaths.

With Potter County continuing to lag in COVID-19 coronavirus vaccinations — just one in three residents 12 and older has been inoculated — the Potter County Area Agency on Aging is sponsoring a free vaccination clinic at the Coudersport Senior Center, located next to the CVFD Firehall on Rt. 6 in west Coudersport. 

The drive-through clinic will administer the first of two Pfizer shots from 9 am to 2 pm on Thursday, Aug. 26. Booster shots will be administered from 9 to 2 on Thursday, Sept. 16. 

More information is available from Heather Morey at 814-544-7315. 

County agencies have been encouraging area residents to protect themselves and others by getting vaccinated, particularly now that the fast-spreading Delta variant of COVID-19 is driving higher case counts in Pennsylvania. 

There were more than 3,422 positive tests in Pennsylvania between Wednesday and Thursday and 18 more deaths. Statewide figures now stand at 1,233,876 cases with 27,898 fatalities. 

DOH has also expressed concern about the relatively low vaccination rate in the region. Potter County’s rate (34 percent) is far below statewide figure of 67 percent, despite widespread availability of the vaccine. 

Entering Wednesday, 4,431 Potter County residents were fully vaccinated and 664 were partially protected. An average of just six vaccinations per day have been administered in the county over the past two weeks. 

If you are vaccinated, your risk of infection is about 3.5 times lower, your risk of getting ill from COVID-19 is over eight times lower, and your risk of hospitalization or death is 25 times lower. 

Both the American Academy of Pediatrics and the U. S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are now recommending that adolescents ages 12 and older be vaccinated against COVID-19 in advance of the new school year. 

Buchanan Brothers Pharmacy in Coudersport administers the vaccine by appointment; call 814-274-8660. UPMC Cole offers two options for residents to set up vaccination appointments. One is a telephone hotline, 814-274-5460. The other is an online resource, vaccine.upmc.com. Rite Aid pharmacies continue to book appointments. To access the online reservation form, click here.
