Mansfield Veterans Memorial Bridge Dedicated Today

PA State Rep. Clint Owlett

This morning, just prior to the 9/11 service in Mansfield, Pennsylvania, we were able to officially name the bridge over the Tioga River The Mansfield Veterans Memorial Bridge. It was an honor to have Congressman Fred Keller, Senator Dush, The Tioga County Commissioner, Bruce Dart, and Cheryl Fulton join in the ceremony. The naming of this bridge is to remember and honor. Each time someone drives across this bridge, I hope they see the sign and know that this corner of the Commonwealth remembers, honors, and cares. 

The 9/11 service followed and was very well done.  We remembered all those who walked into the towers, pentagon, fire or police station, or onto a plane that fateful morning, never to return to their family. The current and future American soldiers watched in horror. They realized that much was going to be required of them, the next generation of American soldiers, in this fight. And fight they have. May we never forget.

Tuesday, Sept. 14 at 1 p.m., Ray Corse of Sullivan Township will play his accordion and sing during the free Golden Afternoons program being held indoors in the lobby at the Deane Center for the Performing Arts at 104 Main Street in Wellsboro. Provided will be free refreshments, including cookies, coffee, tea and water. 

Golden Afternoons is free and open to men and women ages 55 and older. Those who attend are encouraged to wear masks due to the Delta variant of COVID-19. 

Originally, Corse was scheduled to be on the Deane Center's outdoor stage on Tuesday, Aug. 17 but it rained and the program had to be cancelled. 

Corse has been playing the accordion for 69 years, since he was five years old. The majority of the songs he will perform on Sept. 14 are from the 1900s to the 1970s. On his playlist are polkas, country and rock and roll songs, such as “The House of the Rising Sun," “Proud Mary,” “Have I Told You Lately That I Love You,” “Tear In My Beer,” “Love Letters in the Sand,” “Crazy” and “Grandma’s Feather Bed." 

He will also do several songs from the 1800s like "When You and I Were Young Maggie." In addition, he takes requests. “If I can whistle or hum a tune, I can usually play it. Everything I play is by ear," Corse said. 

Other free Golden Afternoons programs are being planned. For information, call the Deane Center at 570-724-6220.


If something can be routine and record-breaking at the same time, Pennsylvania’s archery deer season is it.

It’s routine in its consistency. Pennsylvania held its first statewide archery season in 1951; this year’s hunt is the 71st in a row since. It stretches across seven weeks, includes a Sunday and gives hunters the chance to be afield during the peak of the whitetail rut.

The 2021-22 statewide archery season runs from Oct. 2 to Nov. 13, continues on Sunday, Nov. 14, then goes Nov. 15 to 19. It comes back in on Dec. 27 and goes through Jan. 17. Read more.....

“Hike for Hannah” 2021

SMETHPORT-  The 1st annual Hike For Hannah – Suicide Awareness and Education event will be held on Saturday, September 25th, 2021 at Hamlin Lake Park in Smethport, PA. 

The walk will raise funds and awareness for mental health, suicide prevention and the importance of seeking support.  To save lives, the stigma of depression and mental illness must be removed, allowing people to seek help freely. More people need to be trained in suicide awareness and a change in treatment for those struggling with suicidal thoughts are some things that need to happen. 

Check in for the event begins at 5:30pm, Opening Ceremony will start at 6pm, and the walk will follow. 

Over 57 million people in the United States struggle with mental health issues annually. In 2020, over 44,834 total people died by suicide; 1,896 were from Pennsylvania. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) lists suicide as the 12th leading cause of death in the United States. 

Hike for Hannah expects to see more than 100 people attend, and is open to anyone who has experienced a loss from suicide, is celebrating a survival story, or just wants to show support for suicide awareness. All profits raised will be used to support the local American Foundation for Suicide Prevention - Western PA Chapter, and the Hannah Catherine Wolfe Memorial Fund established at Hamlin Bank.  

Resource tables, games and activities, and light snacks will be provided.  There will also be an Honor Board where names of loved ones can be added, along with luminaries available for purchase that will be lit up along the island at Hamlin Lake at dusk.  The walk will be untimed & family friendly; non-walkers are welcome to join. 

The Hannah Catherine Wolfe Memorial Fund has been established to help high school students who are less fortunate; those who may not have the means to go to college, but may be entering the workforce or going to trade school.  It will also be used to help anyone in need or in crises. 

Jeff and Annie Wolfe, who lost their daughter Hannah to suicide, are the event organizers, along with Hannah’s best friend, Wynonna Hauck.

Jail Board Considers Telemental Health for Inmates

By Cynthia Kelly

At the September meeting of the Potter County Jail Board, Julia Alday, of Cost Management Plus/PIMCC, informed the Board members concerning a proposed contract. Prison Inmate Medical Cost Containment is a medical cost management/educational program dedicated to assisting county prisons with the containment of all costs relating to prison inmate medical expenses.  

Telemental Health is the use of video teleconferencing to deliver mental healthcare at a distance, using live audio/video consulting with a psychiatrist in real time. Proponents of this practice tout the convenience. Doctors are able to see more patients in less time. It decreases the cost of travel. 

Medical professionals could be zoomed in from anywhere in the world. They would be available for a minimum of two-hour blocks per week but more time could be scheduled if necessary. Doctor’s cost $185 per/hr. Nurse Practitioners cost less. Emergency contact is available at an additional expense. 

Alday also referred to a formulary, similar to that of the hospital, that the Psychiatrists could prescribe from. But how the patients/detainees would be able to afford these medications was unclear.  

Medical necessities are also considered. Xray and Ultrasound equipment could be installed at the jail. Prisoners would not have to be transported to the hospital. 

Five other counties in PA are participating with similar contracts. The populations of these counties range from 40,000 to 60,000. Tioga, with a population of 40,000, has double the tax base than that of Potter. 

Paul Heimel referenced ‘criminogenic needs’ which is a study of risk factors associated with criminal conduct. Some of these factors include: low self-esteem, mental health issues, lack of education and lack of employment options. According to statistics, approximately 56% of prisoners are rearrested within one year. There are 44 people currently incarcerated in Potter County. There was no indication as to how many of these are repeat offenders. 

The PA Attorney General has urged counties throughout the state to establish Re-entry Councils. These councils would assist jail inmates to prepare for and adjust to life on the outside. Colleen Wilber, Re-entry Council Chair for Potter was not available for report. Pat Harris is the Re-entry Coordinator who pays weekly visits to the jail.  

Angela Milford, Warden, reported that A Way Out had reached out to her about scheduling counseling sessions with anyone who would like to participate. A Way Out is a non-profit organization located in the county. They provide a 24 hour helpline, crisis counseling, legal advocacy and support groups.  

Judge Minor orders detainees to participate in the 12 Step Program. Warden Milford assured him that effort was being made to schedule meetings for AA and NA within the jail. 

The contract involving telemental health will be examined and discussed at the next meeting to be held on October 1.

Ridgway PSP Are Investigating An Identity Theft In Fox TWP


Ridgway PSP Are Seeking Information For A Burglary In Fox TWP.



Sean Holjencin with three coyotes.  

Johnsonburg, Pa.:  Not only did Sean Holjencin, well-known coyote hunter from Elk County, shoot three coyotes in one afternoon, but he shot all three coyotes within 40 seconds from start to finish.  This feat has not been recorded at the Rolfe Beagle Club’s 10-Day, Statewide Coyote Hunt in the eight years of existence of this fall hunt.  Sean videotaped his harvest and it was so neat to watch.

Sean shoots a .243 rifle and uses an electronic call.  He had just set up late Wednesday afternoon in the Quehanna Wild Area, and the caller had been on for less than four minutes. “And here comes these coyotes right out into the open; I’ve never had anything like that happen before,” said Sean.  “I was pretty pumped.”

Sean harvested his three coyotes at 6:20 p.m. on Wednesday.  All total, Sean has now brought five coyotes to this 10-day hunt.

The Quehanna Wild Area is 50,000 acres encompassing Elk, Cameron, and Clearfield Counties.

PA Attorney General Josh Shapiro Comments on September 11, 2001

Twenty years ago today, on September 11, 2001, America was shaken to its core. From New York City to northern Virginia to Shanksville, Pennsylvania to every big city and small town across our nation, the very foundation of who we are was attacked.

But even in the midst of that terrible day, Americans across the country showed the world our true character.

Outside Shanksville, Pennsylvania, ordinary Americans did an extraordinary thing. Their courage and bravery saved many lives — and their story is now a piece of Pennsylvania’s history. I’ll be in Shanksville today, to honor the memory of the souls we so tragically lost. They will never leave us and we must continue to tell their story.

That’s never been truer than today, on the twentieth anniversary of the day that changed the lives of countless Pennsylvanians, and Americans, forever.

Every year on this day, I am reminded that across our nation, from coast to coast, we are all deeply connected. Twenty years ago, in the face of one of the most devastating days in our country’s history, we came together.

That’s who we are as Americans. When we face the darkness, Americans come together to find the light. That’s the best of what America is.

Today, we remember all those who were killed in the September 11 attacks and all those who sacrificed to heroically help others. We must honor their memory and remember what America is — and what we can be.

I am proud to be an American, today and every day, and I’m proud to be a Pennsylvanian.

We will never forget.

Josh Shapiro

Senator Cris Dush Makes a Statement About His PA Election Investigation

Senator Cris Dush

How many of you remember the nearly six months budget impasse of 2015 when Governor Wolf stopped paying nursing care and every public safety and health care provider in the state?  Do you remember what broke that impasse?  It was the investigative report that Reps Seth Grove Jim Christiana and I published (see link below and do a few searches) following a months long investigation into Wolf’s spending on things like pontoon boats while he was holding health, safety and welfare providers hostage to get you to pony up $6 Billion more every single year (about $36 Billion to date) out of your wallets.  

You never heard about our investigation until we had it completed and published the report but it saved you a ton of money and got those who serve those truly in need paid.  That information caused the Governor to cave within about three days. 

Remember the 2017 impasse when he was at it again and my colleagues and I in the Common Sense Caucus found $12 Billion socked away in 118 hidden “Special Funds”?  That saved you tons and unveiled money that is now much more transparent. 

Many of you who were not in my old House district probably didn’t pay any attention but were simply happy that things got fixed.  They didn’t get fixed by a bunch of grandstanding; they got fixed by a lot of work behind the scenes by a couple of very dedicated teams. 

Those of you who think you are pressuring me into rushing to do what you call an investigation or audit have no understanding of how much has to be done and the care that needs to be applied to ensure a positive outcome such as those two achievements.  I do. 

While I fully understand the angst you have I also have a responsibility to ensure what my team and I are doing is done in a manner that engenders trust in the final result. Results which can be as impactful as those from those previously mentioned investigations. 

The PA Supreme Court’s actions and the actions of the Secretary of State and every level where people had an influence in the operation of the electoral process where we have evidence of issues will be examined as we get this process rolling.  There are more facets to this process than most people are aware and I’m letting you know now this isn’t going to be finished in anywhere close to the time frame we all wish it could be. But it will be done right. 

If anyone were running this who thought it could be accomplished with one or two operations or were to run blindly into actions the courts could find an excuse to put a stop to they would destroy any hope of finding real truth.  Truth is what we all want and my team and I are going digging for it. 

By all means keep the pressure up on everyone in government and push the press to do a little digging for themselves.  We have a lot of work ahead of us and We are, God willing, going to get it done and done correctly.
