Donor Gifts Al Dornisch Paintings to St. Marys

The Elk County Council on the Arts has been contacted by Denise Palmer, the niece of local artist Al Dornisch, a nationally recognized self-taught wildlife painter, regarding the promotion of an upcoming exhibition of his work in St. Marys. Al has sold his artwork here at ECCOTA off and on throughout our organization's history and we are so happy to help promote this exhibition.

An anonymous donor has purchased multiple paintings for permanent display in St Marys. Before they are hung in their designated spots they will be displayed in the Franklin Center building next Friday and Saturday for a public meet and greet.

Denise has submitted an editorial about Al and his artistic accomplishments, attached, with an excerpt below with event details. Photos of Al's work are attached as well.

"I am thrilled to announce that an anonymous donor has come forward and offered to graciously purchase a number of Al's original paintings. It is the donor's wish that the artwork purchased should permanently grace the halls of some of the most prominent buildings in the City of St. Marys. In this way, residents here, who might not otherwise have the privilege of seeing his incredible artwork, will be able to view it on an ongoing basis.

Before the paintings are permanently installed in their locations around town, we would like to offer the public an opportunity to meet one of our own local artists and have a chance to speak with him. There will be a meet and greet, affording you the chance to get up close and personal with Al and his artwork, in a small gallery reception.

A meet & greet exhibit of paintings will be held Friday, November 26 & Saturday, November 27, during the St. Marys Light-Up Night, between 6:00 - 9:00PM. The event will be held in the lobby of the Franklin Center, 32 S. St. Marys Street, St. Marys, PA."

Kinzua Quality Deer Cooperative Offers a Deer Hunters’ Raffle at the Deer Check Station on SR 59 for Firearms Deer Season

Buck image captured on trail camera within the KQDC.  

The Kinzua Quality Deer Cooperative (KQDC) announces that once again they will be offering a Deer Hunters’ Raffle at the KQDC deer check station on SR 59 in Marshburg.  The deer check station is located 0.4 miles east of Timberdoodle Flats Wildlife Trail on SR 59.  The check station will be open on Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and Saturday on the dates of November 27, 28, and 29, and December 4, from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. all four days.

All deer will be weighed, measured, and aged for FREE for hunters.  Hunters will receive a fluorescent orange KQDC hat for bringing their deer to the check station, and a ticket on the raffle.  Hunters bringing in antlerless deer will be eligible for a $500 raffle.   Hunters bringing in an antlered deer will be eligible for a $250 raffle.

The data from the deer check station, combined with vegetation sampling, deer density estimates, and trail camera images provides a ‘snapshot’ on the health of the deer herd and the habitat that is needed to support the deer herd.  “It is so important that we continue to monitor the health of the deer herd and the habitat so that deer don’t destroy the very food sources they need to live.  That’s the best way to provide quality forests with deer and for many other species of wildlife for us and our children and our grandchildren to enjoy,” said John Dzemyan, KQDC Coordinator.  “We need data from hunter harvested deer to achieve our goals of healthy deer, healthy habitat”, said John.

The Kinzua Quality Deer Cooperative is an on-going demonstration, begun in 2000, of how hunting can be used to meet the goals of multiple publics for managing deer.  A partnership of forest landowners, forest managers, biologists, hunters, and local businesses developed the program which relies on hunters to manage deer density on a representative forested area.  

The KQDC is almost 75,000 acres of public and private lands managed to improve deer populations and habitat.  The land is west of Bradford and north of Kane in McKean County.  The cooperators are Sand County Foundation, Allegheny National Forest Visitors Bureau, Allegheny National Forest, Bradford Water Authority, Conservation Forestry, Collins Pine Co. (Kane Hardwood), and RAM Forest Products.  Additional information can be obtained at www.kqdc.comor KQDC.

SATURDAY Update: Hundreds Of Active Cases In Potter County

Potter County Today

Discouraging numbers from the Pa. Dept. of Health (DOH) show that Potter County’s COVID-19 coronavirus case count is rapidly rising while the vaccination rate remains one of the lowest in the state. 

Some 30 more Potter County residents tested positive between Thursday and Friday. 

Since the pandemic was declared, 2,173 people age five and older (14% of the county’s population) have been confirmed as contracting COVID-19. There have been 53 known COVID-related deaths. 

DOH figures also show that active case count in Potter County stood at 212 as of Friday. These are victims who have been infected over the past 14 days and are highly contagious. 

The figure only takes into account positive test results. The full active case count is unknown. DOH says that for each confirmed case in a locale, there are likely at least four other carriers who have not been tested.

National studies show that approximately 70 percent of new COVID victims were not vaccinated. 

As of Tuesday, some 6,222 Potter County residents age 5 and older, or 40 percent, had received at least one dose of the vaccine. Statewide, 80 percent have been at least partially immunized. U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report that the effectiveness of a single COVID shot diminishes over time. Those who have had booster shots are much more fully protected. 

All U.S. residents age 18 and older are now eligible to receive booster vaccines. 

UPMC Cole offers the vaccine to eligible patients at its outpatient offices. To schedule an appointment for an adult, call 814-274-5460; for pediatric patients, call 814-274-9198. Buchanan Brothers Pharmacy in Coudersport administers the vaccine by appointment; call 814-274-8660. Rite Aid pharmacies continue to book appointments.
