100 Year Old Railroad Car Added To Pioneer Oil Museum of New York in Bolivar


 Pioneer Oil Museum of New York

My name is Robert Richards, and I am proud to serve on the board of directors for the Pioneer Oil Museum. Today we brought home a 100 year old railroad car to the depot in Bolivar, and on behalf of both the museum and myself I would like to thank all of you in and around this community who helped. 

There were nearly a hundred people who have helped with or donated to this project, but there are a couple that deserve special mention. 

A year and a half ago I was touring an old lease with Paul Plants of Plants & Goodwin, and some other board members. I pointed out the tank, saying it looked like a railroad tanker. Paul said "yup. You can have it if you can move it." That's how this all started. Thank you Paul. 

The next big one was Nick Halliday from the Environmental Services Group in Tonawanda. They pumped over 500 gallons of 50 year old diesel fuel from the tank, then cleaned and disconnected it from the powerhouse. 

Lastly was Greg West and his crew from Gas Field Specialists in Shinglehouse PA who came out in a blizzard yesterday to move the tank. 

There were many more individuals who pitched in with advice or donations too - I don't even know who some of you are. I cannot begin to express my gratitude to this community and all of those who helped out here. I am truly humbled to be a part of this. Thank you all.
 

Donations to complete this project can be made on our go fund me page:

Swartz Scholarship to support OHS/Walsh graduates attending Pitt-Bradford


The Lee W. and Jeremie L. Swartz Pitt-Bradford Scholarship Fund, recently established at the Cattaraugus Region Community Foundation, will provide annual support for graduates of Olean High School or Archbishop Walsh Academy who plan to continue their education at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford (PA).

The scholarship, first to be awarded in 2022, will be a $10,000 per year award over four years for a graduate of Olean High School or Archbishop Walsh Academy who enrolls in a bachelor’s degree program at Pitt-Bradford. Students must be in good academic standing and must demonstrate financial need. A new student will not be chosen until the first student completes a four-year award cycle.

The scholarship was established by Olean native Lee W. Swartz in remembrance of his brother Jeremie Swartz (1950-2004), an Olean High School and Drake University graduate. Lee Swartz, who is also a graduate of Olean High School, now lives away from the area but decided to establish the scholarship to give back to the community in which he was raised as well as the college that had an impact on his career.

The Swartz family owned and operated the Swartz grocery stores in Olean from the 1940s through the 1970s.

After graduating from Olean High School, Lee went on to attend Cornell University, where he graduated with a BA in sociology. He served on active duty in the US Navy from January 1957 through June 1960 and later retired from the Reserves as a Lieutenant Commander.

Returning to Olean after his active naval service, Lee worked in the family business and then served as the director of development for the city of Olean, securing funding for its Urban Renewal and housing programs. He also continued working towards a master’s degree in public administration.

In the 1960s, Lee took University of Pittsburgh at Bradford extension courses in planning and urban development taught by Joseph Bendel from the planning firm of Mullen and Lonigran. Those classes would play an important role in serving Lee during his long career in municipal government management and urban development.

After leaving Olean, he went to work as a project director for the city of Rochester Department of Urban Renewal and Economic Development. Following that role, he served as the executive director of the Charleston, West Virginia Urban Renewal Authority. Under his management, the authority received a HUD (U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development) commendation for quality of effort.

He finished his career as the executive director of the Montgomery County (MD) Revenue Authority.

Lee decided to establish the Lee W. Swartz and Jeremie I. Swartz Pitt-Bradford Scholarship Fund in recognition of the role that his education and training from both Olean High School and the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford played in laying the groundwork for his career.

CRCF Executive Director Karen Niemic Buchheit lauded Swartz’s decision to establish this new scholarship fund which will provide a generous award each year to a deserving student in need.

“Mr. Swartz’s story proves that education can open many doors,” she said. “With the rising cost of education, this scholarship will play a significant role in allowing students to follow Mr. Swartz’s footsteps at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford.”

Students can apply for all CRCF-managed scholarships beginning February 1, 2022, at cattfoundation.org/apply-for-scholarships.

Donations can be made to the Lee W. Swartz and Jeremie I. Swartz Scholarship Fund at CRCF, 301 North Union Street, Olean, NY 14760 or online at carrfoundation.org.

BRADFORD, Pa. – Zippo Manufacturing Co. Chairman, George Duke, announced a $2 million gift to the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford, dedicated largely to equipping state-of-the-art engineering labs in the campus’s new Engineering and Information Technologies Building, which is scheduled to be completed in Fall 2022.

“We are grateful to George and Zippo for this generous gift, which will help us develop unique spaces where our students can be creative and innovative,” said Rick Esch, Pitt-Bradford’s interim president. “The hands-on experiences they will have in our new building will give them the preparation they need for successful engineering careers in our region and beyond.”  

Duke said, “This donation is part of Zippo’s long-term commitment to Pitt-Bradford and has the added benefit of paving the way for Pitt-Bradford engineering technology graduates to fill vital roles at Zippo, W. R. Case and other companies in the region.”

Mark Paup, President and Chief Executive Officer of Zippo, W.R. Case & Sons Cutlery, Co., and Wellsville, NY-based Northern Lights Candle Co., said: “Zippo is proud to employ many Pitt-Bradford alumni, and we are fortunate to be able to support Pitt-Bradford’s student-growth focused technology and career-opportunities-driven initiatives. The university’s tremendous educational opportunities and its direct relationship to viable careers not only encourages students from the area to stay local, it also attracts new talent to the region.”

“Zippo and Case are growing and to sustain that growth, we foresee a great need for additional engineering professionals within the organization. From product innovation to enhancing our Bradford-based manufacturing capabilities, engineering technology is at the forefront of this potential.”

To help meet the needs of Zippo, Case and other regional employers for additional engineering professionals, Pitt-Bradford developed two new engineering technology majors – mechanical engineering technology and energy engineering technology – that will be offered starting in fall 2022.

“Our relationship with these expanded programs at Pitt-Bradford allows us to give students insight into the real-world applications of their studies,” Paup said.

Additionally, Zippo’s operations and innovations teams are providing support and guidance on the equipment to include within the labs. Internship opportunities may also develop as part of this ongoing collaboration.

In Pitt-Bradford’s new building, engineering technology students will have hands-on labs and study applied science and mathematics. They will create their own projects in a maker space full of milling machines, lathes, welding equipment, metal-cutting technology and 3D printers and scanners.

Students in mechanical engineering technology will be able to design and build a prototype for an industrial process, then test the parts in strength of materials, fluid dynamics and electronics labs.

Energy engineering technology students will study geographical information systems, sensors and automation, energy efficiency, and renewable, alternative and conventional energy sources.

Graduates with engineering technology degrees will be prepared to apply for and perform the same jobs as those with engineering degrees since they will take similar classes in math and engineering. However, the teaching and learning in the engineering technology programs will be focused on practical applications.

The new four-year programs will provide enhanced opportunities in the way of lab and testing equipment to continue engineering students’ hands-on experience.

Engineering technology-related labs in the new building will include:

  •     A circuit lab with bench space for soldering, function generators, analog and digital microcontrollers, spectrum analyzer, and oscilloscopes.
  •     A measurements lab where students will be able to work with sensors and automation in a space containing programmable logic controllers, wireless sensing hardware, ultrasonic flaw detectors, and more.
  •     A machine shop with computer-controlled plasma cutter, CNC milling machines and lathes, variable speed drill presses, band saws, machine presses, disc and belt grinders, welders, and rapid prototype machines. Students will be able to create prototypes, then test them in the strength and materials or fluid dynamics lab.
  •     A strength and materials lab, where students can test, measure, and destroy their creations by pulling, pushing, and hitting them with a compression/tension tester and a dynamic fatigue tester as well as testers for impact, hardness, and torque.
  •     A fluid dynamics lab with a wind tunnel, table-top fluid process automation system, Rankine cycler and more.


The new building also will house three of Pitt-Bradford’s existing majors: computer information systems and technology, energy science and technology, and information systems.
