Shinglehouse Ambulance to Rt. 44


At 3:39 PM on Saturday, Shinglehouse ambulance has been called to Rt. 44 for difficulty breathing.


NESSMUK ROD AND GUN CLUB RUNNING DEER SHOOTS ARE ON SUNDAYS, OCT. 31, NOV. 7 & 14

The Nessmuk Rod and Gun Club is hosting three running deer shoots outdoors from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sundays, Oct. 31 and Nov. 7 and Nov. 14, rain or shine. The shoots will be at the club's outdoor range at 4646 Route 287, 6.5 miles south of Wellsboro in Delmar Township. Club members and the public are invited to participate. 

The shooter with the highest score in the last round of the day at each of the three running deer shoots will win a frozen turkey. "I thought the frozen turkeys might add a little interest to this year's running deer shoots," said Ray Rowland, organizer. 

A special round for youth, 17 and under will also be held during each of the three Sunday running deer shoots. "The youth with the highest score will win a gift certificate from Cooper's Sporting Goods in Mansfield," Rowland said. 

The running deer paper target is fixed to a four-foot by three-foot wooden frame that is mounted on wheels on a cable. The target is pulled along the cable from left to right at 100 yards from the shooting area. Only one shooter is allowed to be on the range per pass. Safety gear and eye and ear protection are required to participate. A sign-up will be held before each round of shooters. 

The fee for youth 17 and under, and for adults, 18 and older, is $2 per pass with a limit of two shots per pass. The fee will be split with 50 percent going to the shooter with the highest score per round and the other 50 percent to the club. 

For more information, call Ray Rowland at 1-607-857-4631. 

MOONDANCE, VAN MORRISON TRIBUTE CONCERT ON FRIDAY AND SATURDAY, OCT. 22 AND OCT. 23 TO OPEN WELLSBORO COMMUNITY CONCERT ASSOCIATION’S 2021-2022 SEASON

Ed Moran (front) portrays Van Morrison on stage. He is shown with the members of the five-piece band that perform with him. 

"If Van Morrison isn't coming to your town, Moondance is the next best thing!" writes the Dallas News.

Moondance: the Ultimate Van Morrison Tribute Concert will be at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 22 and 23 in the Deane Center's Coolidge Theatre at 104 Main Street in Wellsboro. 

The Friday night performance is primarily for Wellsboro Community Concert Association subscribers who plan to attend all six shows being offered during WCCA's 2021-2022 season. Seating is theatre style. Those attending must wear masks throughout the performance. 

WCCA is also hosting a Saturday night performance for the general public. Seating is cabaret-style at tables. Ticket holders are encouraged to bring their favorite beverages and snacks and reserve a table to sit with family and friends. Those attending must wear masks unless sitting at their tables. 

"We put this show together eight years ago because Van Morrison is a popular singer/songwriter who rarely performs in our country," said Vinnie Brandi of Galaxy Entertainment, producer of the Moondance tribute concert. "When he does, it's usually a short run," Brandi added. "People don't get to see 'Van the Man' in person much anymore compared to other performers who are constantly on tour."  

Born on Aug. 31, 1945 in Belfast, Northern Ireland, the 76-year-old Grammy Award-winning Morrison released his 42nd studio album, the 28-track "Latest Record Project, Volume 1” on May 7 of this year.

A professional musician since the late 1950s, Morrison plays guitar, harmonica, keyboards, drums and saxophone. Before going solo, he first gained national attention as the lead singer for the band.

This Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee has never failed to impress music lovers around the globe. "Rock and roll doesn't get any better than Van Morrison," said Brandi. 

During the Oct. 22 and 23 concerts, the audience will hear Morrison’s classic rock songs like "Brown Eyed Girl" and "Domino," legendary tunes like "Tupelo Honey" and "Into The Mystic" and others, such as "Moondance," "It Stoned Me," "Wild Night," and "Caravan." Also included will be "Bright Side of the Road" from Morrison's 1979 album "Into the Music;" "Cleaning Windows" from his 1982 "Beautiful Vision" album and "Days Like This" from his 23rd 1995 same titled album.

"Van isn't much of a talker and neither is Ed," Brandi said in referring to Ed Moran who portrays Morrison and is the lead vocalist in the show. "The audience can count on hearing little tidbits during the performance, such as the stories behind some of the songs," Brandi noted. "A very impressive and realistic portrayal of Van Morrison…a must see," according to the Hawaii Reporter."

Described as "An incredible recreation of the Irish legend," by the LA Times, Moran is backed by a five-piece band whose members play the same five instruments as Morrison. Members are: Joseph Torra on keyboards; Dana Welts on guitar; Vinnie Brandi on drums; Dan Broad on bass guitar and Aaron Dean on saxophone. Welts and Broad are Moran's backing vocalists. 

Season passes save money. A season pass admits one adult and accompanying children, 12 and under, to each of the six WCCA concerts and a separate season pass admits a student, 13 to 18. 2019-2020 season ticket holders can purchase a discounted 2021-2022 season ticket. 

Individual tickets for the Friday or Saturday Moondance concert can be purchased in advance for adults, children 12 and under and students, 13 to 18 or at the door either night on a first-come first-served, space-available basis. To purchase tickets at the door, arrive at the Deane Center at 7:15 p.m.

To reserve seats for Friday and tables for Saturday or for tickets or season ticket forms, visit www.wellsborocca.org, call the Deane Center at 570-724-6220 or stop in at 104 Main Street in Wellsboro.

Fortunato “Fred” T. Defranco

Fortunato “Fred” T. Defranco, 97, a resident of Pinecrest Manor and formerly of 207 Grandview Road, St. Marys, passed away Friday, October 15, 2021, at Pinecrest Manor.

He was born March 7, 1924, in Johnsonburg, son of the late Antonio and Pasquelina Albanese Defranco.  Fred was a graduate of Johnsonburg High School, Class of 1941.  After graduation, he served in the United States Army during World War II in the European Theatre and North Africa.  He lived most of his life in St. Marys and was a retired employee of the Stackpole Carbon Company, retiring after 37 years of service.  

On June 28, 1947, in the St. Mary’s Church, Fred married Monica G. Bauer, who preceded him in death on November 2, 2012.

He is survived by his daughters: Chris Ortiz of Latham, NY, and Lorraine Garbic of St. Marys; his son, Anthony M. Defranco of St. Marys; 10 grandchildren; and by 31 great-grandchildren.

He was a member of the Queen of the World Church and a member of the American Legion.
