PROOF AUDITIONS ARE JULY 9, 10, 12

American playwright David Auburn’s "Proof," winner of both the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for drama and the Tony Award for best play, explores the question, "How far will I go to prove my love for my family?"

The play focuses on the relationship between two people who happen to be a father and his daughter. The father, a brilliant mathematician, has suffered from mental illness for much of his life. His daughter has found herself the sole caregiver, since her sister lives in a distant city. Auburn examines family dynamics as his characters wrestle with what it takes to prove love and loyalty to each other.

"Proof" was written as a play first, winning both a Pulitzer and Tony, and was then made into a successful film starring Anthony Hopkins and Gwyneth Paltrow as the father and daughter. "I was moved by the struggle of these individuals to hold onto their family connections," said director, Thomas Putnam. "To what lengths must/should/can we go to keep these connections viable? What sacrifices are required?"

Auditions will be at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, July 9, 10 and 11 at the Warehouse Theatre at 3 Central Avenue in Wellsboro. No experience is necessary to audition. There are roles in this play for two men and two women: the father around 50; the daughter around 25; her older sister; and a male graduate student in his 20s.

Performances will be at 7:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, Sept. 29 and 30 and Oct. 6 & 7 and at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 1 at the Warehouse Theater.

For more information about the auditions or to make reservations for the performances, call Hamilton-Gibson at 570-724-2079 or email hamgib@gmail.com.

Vote Postponed On Frackwater Processing Plant At Coudersport Authority Meeting

Bryan Welsh

A lot to digest and some perplexing information needing further researched. A big thank you to CAMA for postponing the vote on the lease agreement on the frackwater processing plant. An informed public is the basis of a true democracy. 

Public q and a meeting on July 12.

Big thanks also to the citizens who made it to the meeting. We the people need to be part of the process if we want our voices heard.

I will be setting up a page on Facebook tentatively called "Lets talk!" as a contact point and general way for me to try and answer any questions or concerns.

It will hopefully enable me to address things in a more timely manner. I'll also be putting my cell number and email addy there to share with those who don't use Facebook. Feel free to contact me any time. I will be spending a lot more time at 129 main street as my wife and I are opening an art studio and used book store there. Feel free to stop me if you see me on the street. Open communication is integral to any relationship whether it's personal, business, or governmental.

Roulette Residents Recycling: Nita Is Getting Tired Of Dumpster Diving!!

Roulette Residents

The recycle dumpsters have had a lot of stuff dumped in them lately that does not belong in there. I personally am getting tired of digging it out. I am going to give a list of stuff that can go in the dumpsters and stuff that cannot go in. If the issue continues then you may be asked to put your items in one by one instead of just dumping them in.

Cardboard almost any cardboard but pizza boxes must be clean.

Paper includes newspapers, junk mail, envelopes, magazines, egg cartons (not foam egg cartons), soft covered books (no hard back books), etc.

Plastics containers #1 - #7 anything with a triangle, i.e., milk jugs, detergent bottles, shampoo , etc. It does not include anything like PVC pipe is made of, including kayaks cut in half. All plastics must have a recycle triangle on them or they do not go in.

Glass is bottles and containers such as pickle jars, mayonnaise jars, etc. It does not include window glass, mirrors, dishes of any sorts, pyrex, ceramics, foam packaging, any kind of kind of Styrofoam, pots and pans of any sorts.

There is to be no plastic bags with the exception of your shredded paper and that must be in a clear bag. All recycles must be dumped of food waste and rinsed. Thank you

PennDOT, Safety Partners Distribute Impaired Driving and Boating Safety Materials Ahead of Independence Day Holiday

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT), the Community Traffic Safety Project, the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) and Tiadaghton Valley Regional Police Department (TVRPD) today met at Crystal Beverage in Jersey Shore to promote safe driving and boating during an Independence Day Impaired Driving Mobilization beginning Friday, June 23 through July 5, 2017.

Participants discussed regional DUI patrols both on and off the water as part of this year’s impaired driving mobilization which runs from June 23 through July 4. As part of the campaign, TVRPD distributed “Boating Under the Influence-What do you know?” posters to area businesses that are patronized by river lot campers and visitors.
 
The Independence Day weekend is the busiest period of the boating season as well as the most dangerous on the waterways.
 
Under Pennsylvania law, boat operators can be arrested for BUI while operating any watercraft if they are incapable of safe operation regardless of any blood alcohol concentration (BAC).
 
Waterways Conservation Officer Emmett Kyler noted “The penalties for an individual convicted of BUI are very similar to the DUI penalties with the exception an individual will lose their boat operating privileges as opposed to their driver’s license. This is always a huge misconception.”

Per PennDOT data, last year there were 2,887 vehicle crashes resulting in 21 fatalities during the Independence Day Holiday from Friday, July 1, to Sunday, July 10.  Of those fatalities, eight were attributed to a drinking driver and four were attributed to a drugged driver.
 
PennDOT encourages drivers to plan ahead by either designating a sober driver or arranging for alternate transportation.
 
For more information about impaired driving, visit www.penndot.gov/safety or call
1-877-723-6830.
 
Follow the conversation on social media by using #July4DUI or #DriveSober on Twitter at www.twitter.com/PennDOTNews and like the department on Facebook at www.facebook.com/PennsylvaniaDepartmentofTransportation.

BOOK BY FIRST WOMAN TO ROW ACROSS ATLANTIC CHOSEN FOR PITT-BRADFORD COMMON READER, ONE BOOK BRADFORD


Adventurer Tori Murden McClure, the first woman to row solo across the Atlantic Ocean, will speak this fall at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford.

McClure’s visit and talk at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 19 in the Bromeley Family Theater supplements students’ reading the story of her journey, “A Pearl in the Storm: How I Found My Heart in the Middle of the Ocean.” Students in freshman seminar, environmental studies, writing and composition classes will all read at least a part of the book.

“A Pearl in the Storm” will also be this year’s selection for One Book Bradford, a community common reader project.

“The book is more than the story of a great feat,” said Dr. Nancy McCabe, professor of writing and director of the writing program at Pitt-Bradford. “The details of rowing across the ocean are fascinating, but the journey of self-discovery is what really drew me and led me to use the book in a class here at Pitt-Bradford, where I got an enthusiastic response from my students.”

As if being the first woman to row solo across the Atlantic were not enough, McClure was one of two women and six Americans who cross-country skied their way to the geographic South Pole – a journey of 750 miles. She has climbed mountains on several continents, including Antarctica. She is the subject of the French documentary “Beyond Limits – Tori Murden.”

More than a dozen television shows and 30 major magazines have featured McClure’s story. Fellow sea adventurer Thor Heyerdahl presented her with the Peter Bird Trophy for Tenacity and Perseverance in 2000, the first time a woman was the honor’s recipient.

McClure holds a bachelor’s degree from Smith College, a Master of Divinity from Harvard University, a law degree from the University of Louisville and a Master of Fine Arts in writing from Spalding University, where she is now president.

It was in her connection to Spalding that McCabe first met McClure. McCabe teaches in the short-term residency MFA program at Spalding.

“Last fall at Spalding, Tori invited the creative nonfiction program to visit her boat, the American Pearl,” McCabe said. “She urged us to climb around on it. Sitting in the seat where she’d rowed for hours and hours and crawling into the coffin-sized cabin really hit home what it must have been like to have been in this boat barely bigger than a pickup truck in the midst of a vast ocean.”

One Book Bradford will hold a community book review at 10:30 a.m. Sept. 9 led by Rick Lutz, a retired Bradford Area School District English teacher who has paddled for long distances alone in his kayak.

Copies of “A Pearl in the Storm” will be available at The Panther Shop on campus in mid-July.

For disability needs, contact Carma Horner, disability resources and services coordinator, at 814-362-7609 or clh71@pitt.edu.

McClure’s visit is co-sponsored by the Pitt-Bradford Spectrum Series and Freshman Seminar.

PA Game Commission Makes Deals With Coal & Gas Companies In McKean, Bradford, Indiana and Lycoming counties

THREE ENERGY DEALS APPROVED

The Pennsylvania Board of Game Commissioners today approved energy-development agreements on three tracts of state game lands.

Amerikohl Mining Inc., of Butler, Pa., was approved to remove an estimated 15,840 tons of Lower Kittaning coal under about 13 acres on State Game Lands 276 in Burrell Township, Indiana County.

Amerikohl is developing a surface mining project for coal on private land situated between State Game Lands 276 and 153. Allowing that project to extend onto the game lands for complete removal of the Lower Kittaning coal crop will eliminate the potential for future downgradient mine discharges on game lands.

The board also approved an agreement with Chief Oil & Gas LLC, of Dallas, Texas, to develop the Game Commission’s oil and gas rights under about 499 acres of State Game Lands 36 in Franklin and Monroe townships, Bradford County.

Chief has a strong, privately owned oil and gas lease position surrounding this portion of game lands, and has the ability to develop the reserve without any surface disturbance to the game lands.

This agreement will result in a one-time bonus payment of about $1 million.

The board also approved a five-year option to enter into an agreement with Seneca Resources, of Pittsburgh, to develop the Game Commission’s oil and gas rights under about 2,151 acres of State Game Lands 133 in Gamble, Lewis and Cascade townships, Lycoming County. Seneca also has the ability to develop the reserve without any surface disturbance to the game lands.

As part of the agreement, Seneca will transfer to the Game Commission an 80-acre interior tract within State Game Lands 62 in Hamlin Township, McKean County.

Shinglehouse Ambulance To Health Center

Rush Race Results


JEREMY WONDERLING BECOMES 1ST TO REPEAT IN SWEENEY TOUR FOR RUSH LATE MODELS WITH 1ST EVER WIN AT TRI-CITY IN "BILL EMIG MEMORIAL"; KYLE MARTELL GOES 2-FOR-2 IN BICKNELL TOUR FOR RUSH SPORTSMAN MODS

June 25, 2017
(By Mike Leone)

(Franklin, PA)...The Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Racing Series powered by Pace Performance made its first visit of the season to Tri-City Raceway Park on Sunday for the rescheduled "Bill Emig Memorial" for both the RUSH Late Model Touring Series and the RUSH Sportsman Modified Bicknell Racing Products Touring Series. Capturing wins were Jeremy Wonderling in the Late Models and Kyle Martell in the Sportsman Modifieds. The event was originally scheduled for Father's Day, but was postponed a week due to thunderstorms. Sunday's weather was fall-like with cool conditions and scattered showers, but the show was completed without any delay.

Jeremy Wonderling opened the Sweeney Late Model Touring Series with a thrilling victory at Stateline Speedway on May 20 by out-dueling standout Max Blair. On Sunday, Wonderling was the benefactor of a flat tire by Mike Pegher, Jr., who dominated the first half of the event, and went on for his second $2,000 Tour win of the season. The 30-lap victory was Wonderling's first ever at Tri-City and first ever "Bill Emig Memorial" win.

"It was good to win, but Mike Pegher has us covered on that one," stated the 37-year-old Wellsville, NY driver. "I see he had a flat tire and still finished second so I'm pretty sure he was the fastest one here, but I'll take them however I can get them. I knew if I moved John (Waters) up a little into the loose stuff he'd spin his tires, but I can't be too mean to him because I race him all the time and we're good friends. I had a softer tire than everyone so I was just trying to stay on the bottom. When Mike got by me I was just trying to maintain then I saw him pull off and thought 'I need to make the best of this while he's gone'. I didn't know Bill (Emig), but obviously he was a pretty good part of the sport with Vicki. Winning a prestigious event like this is pretty special."

Pegher was able to shoot past Wonderling racing off turn two on the opening lap for the lead. By lap three, Pegher began to pull away from the field, but his lead was erased when Christian Schneider spun to bring out the caution. When racing resumed on lap four, Jason Knowles moved into the top five past Bruce Hordusky, Jr. and brought J.J. Mazur with him in sixth. Hordusky would soon exit the event with a flat tire and was awarded the TBM Brakes "Tough Brake of the Night" recipient. Mazur then passed Knowles for the fifth spot on lap five.

Pegher soon pulled away again from the pack and opened up a straightaway lead by lap 10. Pegher caught lapped traffic on lap 13 and made a great move splitting W.L. Stile and Schneider by going three-wide down the frontstretch on lap 14. Knowles slowed to bring out the caution running sixth with 14 laps scored. Under caution, Pegher exited the event with a flat tire handing the lead to Wonderling with Bryce Davis, John Waters, and Mazur moving into the top four spots.

Back under green, Wonderling took off in the lead, while Davis got by Waters for second. It didn't take Pegher long to fly back through the field as he already was up to fourth on lap 16 when he got by Mazur. Pegher got the caution he needed when Tony White spun with 23 laps recorded.

The final seven laps went caution-free. Pegher got under Davis to take third on the restart and caught Waters on lap 26. The two were side-by-side in turn four on lap 27, and made contact with Pegher getting by for second. By now Wonderling had too much of a lead and would hold off Pegher to win by 1.864 seconds in his Terry Prince Contracting/Close Racing Supply/Mesler Trucking-sponsored #3J.

Pegher earned $1,000 for his runner-up finish in Brian Swank's #RJ1, and was awarded the Maxima Racing Oil "Maximum Performance award for his efforts all night long. "Those guys gave me a really good car tonight," expressed Pegher. "It's disappointing that we gave it away with a flat tire, but those guys work just as hard as anyone else. It was still good to come up and finish second in the end. Vicki (Emig) has done so much work over the years. I have to give her a round of applause and everything she does for this sport. It means a lot to us racers. We do appreciate it. Obviously I didn't get a chance to meet her dad, but I'm sure he was a pretty good dude."

Waters beat out Davis for third. Mazur, who is in his first year on the Tour, recorded his best finish in fifth. Jamie Wrightsman's sixth place was his best effort since a fifth at Expo Speedway on July 15, 2015. Michael Duritsky, Jr., who has five Sweeney Weekly Series wins this season at Roaring Knob Motorsports Complex, made his first Sweeney Tour start of the season and finished seventh after starting 12th. He received a $100 Precise Racing Products gift card for being the "Pedal Down" Hard Charger.
