Wellsville Regional

Flames ripped through a home late Tuesday afternoon at 352 N Main Street in Wellsville. 

When the first chief arrived on scene, he reported the first floor engulfed in flames. Wellsville firefighters were assisted by numerous nearby departments. 

According to online reports, at least three firefighters from Wellsville sustained injuries. All are recovering at home. 

The stubborn blaze prompted ongoing requests for additional masked/interior firefighters to the scene. 

The two-family home is owned by Michael and Marcia Dunn of Coudersport. 

Occupants (7, reportedly) of the dwelling were displaced. Fire Chief Bill Cavanaugh finally declared the fire "out" at 2 a.m. Wednesday. The cause is under investigation.

On Wednesday in Allegany County court, Judge Thomas Brown sentenced Justin Haynes, 30, to 180 days in the Allegany County Jail. Haynes pleaded guilty to 2nd degree menacing, although he was originally charged with aggravated family offense, menacing, criminal mischief, harassment and endangering the welfare of a child. 

According to a press statement, Haynes was accused of "grabbing a knife during a domestic incident and displayed it in a threatening manner." 

He was also assessed a $200 court surcharge and a $50 DNA fee. Prosecutors said the incident occurred November 23, 2016. The case was prosecuted by assistant district attorney Mike Finn. Haynes was represented by the Allegany County Public Defender.

Governor Wolf Announces Statewide 'Resurface PA' Initiative to Attack Potholes, Effects of Long Winter

Wolf Administration to Allocate $180 Million for Pothole Repairs and Interstate Resurfacing

Harrisburg, PA – Following a long winter season with dramatic temperature swings, Governor Tom Wolf announced today that PennDOT is mounting an aggressive campaign to accelerate repaving work on interstates and attack potholes across Pennsylvania as part of a Resurface PA initiative. A significant part of the work will be financed using savings from other projects since Governor Wolf took office.

“PennDOT has been at work on this problem for many months, but the severe temperature swings through the winter have created ideal conditions for continued pavement challenges,” Gov. Wolf said. “We are further increasing our focus on pothole repairs and also accelerating much-needed work on our interstates.”

Governor Wolf directed PennDOT to dedicate as many resources as possible to pothole and pavement repairs. The department has prioritized $22.3 million for immediate pothole repairs through June 30, which translates into nearly 30,000 tons of patching material. An additional $7 million will be invested in seven interstate maintenance projects covering potholes and other repairs on 78 miles of roads this year.

Other new investments to help address the effects of this year’s particularly long and difficult winter include:

$30 million in transportation infrastructure investment funding for interstate improvements;
$60 million in PennDOT investments from interstate-project bid savings being reinvested in resurfacing; and $62 million in additional funding for interstate preservation projects.

Together, these commitments will make 17 interstate paving and preservation projects covering 255 miles happen at least two years sooner than scheduled, with projects beginning this year and next year. These accelerated projects, which will preserve the pavement surfaces for at least five to six years, build on the 85 interstate projects covering more than 775 miles that are underway or expected to begin or finish this year.

“We have improved thousands of miles of roadway in the past three years and we continue to battle potholes across the state each year,” PennDOT Secretary Leslie S. Richards said. “These investments will address much-needed repairs and preserve several stretches of interstate.”

Through the end of April, PennDOT crews had used nearly 23,000 tons of asphalt repairing potholes statewide, equal to the weight of roughly 1,500 PennDOT dump trucks. In comparison, by the same time in 2017, PennDOT had used 15,418 tons of asphalt and 14,673 tons in 2016. PennDOT has spent more than $17 million on pothole repairs statewide through the end of April this year.

With Pennsylvania’s aggressive freeze-thaw cycle, roadways will always experience potholes. PennDOT crews are working vigorously to repair pothole damage on nearly 40,000 miles of state-owned roadway, addressing higher traffic roadways first and working on others as soon as possible. Earlier repairs were temporary because long-lasting asphalt is not available until the weather warms and asphalt plants open operations.

Motorists can report potholes and other highway-maintenance concerns on state routes at or by calling PennDOT’s toll-free hotline at 1-800-FIX-ROAD (1-800-349-7623). In addition to the potholes addressed through continued monitoring by PennDOT crews, more than 12,365 pothole concerns have been reported to PennDOT and more than 96 percent were addressed through May 21.

Motorists are asked to be as specific as possible when providing locations of maintenance concerns. Motorists should report the county, municipality, street name, and state route number, which can be found on small black and white signs posted along state highways. In addition, a description of any familiar landmarks would be helpful for PennDOT to locate the problem area.

Maintenance concerns will be corrected as soon as possible. Emergency road repairs, such as road wash-outs, are handled on a top-priority basis.

The 1-800-FIX-ROAD number should not be used to report traffic accidents, disabled vehicles or other emergencies. Motorists should continue to call 911 to report these types of emergencies.

House Passes National Defense Bill

Thompson supports pay raise for American troops, increased readiness, actions to strengthen our nation’s missile defense systems

WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Representative Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson voted in favor of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2019, which boosts defense spending, increases military personnel and gives a pay raise to our troops.

NDAA is an annual bill that authorizes some of the most basic and essential responsibilities of Congress – such as funding our Armed Forces and national defenses and paying the salaries of our servicemen and women. It passed by a vote of 351-66.

The bill authorizes $717 billion in defense funding, including $69 billion for Overseas Contingency Operations to fight the Global War on Terror. It also includes a $2.5 billion increase to the missile defense fund to ensure we can protect the homeland from threats posed by advanced, long-range missiles.

“For far too long, our forces have been asked to do too much with too little,” Rep. Thompson said. “The defense authorization provides our armed services with the resources they need to respond to a diverse range of national security threats. It also gives our troops a well-deserved raise, continues to restore our forces to full strength, and ensures that our military is equipped to confront the next generation of threats and challenges. As we prepare to celebrate Memorial Day 2018, I am proud to support this bill which improves military agility, effectiveness, and ensures the United States remains the greatest force for peace in the world.”

The NDAA supports necessary increases in topline funding to support our troops and improve readiness, consistent with President Trump’s commitment to rebuild the military.

A 2.6 percent pay raise for our troops is authorized, which is the largest increase in nine years.

The NDAA authorizes increasing the size of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Army Guard and Reserve, Naval and Air Reserve, and Air Guard.

It takes steps toward accomplishing our goal of a 355-ship Navy and modernizes our nation’s air capabilities by authorizing additional F-35 Joint Strike Fighters.

It increases funding for more and better training opportunities for each Service, and for sustaining, restoring, and modernizing facilities and equipment.

This bill makes critical investments in missile defense and nuclear deterrent, which is becoming increasingly important as our adversaries continue to invest in new technologies.

It makes key investments in other critical military capabilities to confront aggression and address threats around the world, including threats from Russia, China, North Korea and Iran.

The NDAA makes major reforms in Pentagon bureaucracy and streamlines buying practices.

Keystone's Proposed Budget Lists Large Tax Increase For Potter County Taxpayers

Proposed Keystone budget buys some time

Taxes would go up for many; Dickey School would stay open

Lock Haven Express

MILL HALL — “A little bit of light down the long, dark tunnel,” said Dr. Alan Lonoconus, interim superintendent at Keystone Central, describing the district’s situation at last night’s school board meeting.

The meeting was held to pass a proposed final budget, and was met with a room full of concerned parents, staff and community members – but relatively little discussion from school board members.

This budget must be displayed publicly for 20 days and will be voted on at next month’s regular meeting on June 14. As of yet, this budget has not received final approval.

The big take-aways:


The district will hike real estate taxes to the index, an increase of 3.3 percent. For an average taxpayer in Clinton County, this will work out to be an increase of $44, while the Potter County increase will be $140. Taxpayers in Centre County, on the other hand, will see a reduction of $47 on average, due to the way indexing works.  Read more...

Coudersport Ambulance To State Police Barracks

At 11:03 PM on Wednesday, Coudersport Ambulance has been dispatched to the Pennsylvania State Police Barracks on Denton Hill for a medical emergency.


Hamilton-Gibson Productions, Tioga County’s community theatre arts group, is recruiting volunteers for two events at the Watkins Glen International racetrack in Watkins Glen, New York.

Watkins Glen International will contribute funds to Hamilton-Gibson, a non-profit organization, for volunteers’ time. “H-G can potentially make more than $2,000,” said Bev Dochstader, H-G development coordinator. “Anyone 18 and over who wants to help HG can volunteer so bring a friend and enjoy a day at the Glen," she said.

The Finger Lakes Wine Festival is Friday through Sunday, July 13-15 and is sponsored by Yancey's Fancy, a producer of artisan cheeses in Corfu, New York. “We need 20 volunteers to work in the wine pick-up tent for four or five hours in the afternoon on both Saturday and Sunday, July 14 and 15," said Dochstader.

Volunteers in the pick-up tent organize wine purchases as they come in from vendors and wait on customers who are picking up their orders. "It is similar to a coat check system," she said. The work is steady and under a tent so volunteers are not in the sun or rain. Shifts begin at 12, p.m., 1 p.m. or 2 p.m. Volunteers are asked to arrive at least 30 minutes before their shift to get a T-shirt and ID badge.

"Some camping is available to volunteers on a first come, first served basis during the wine festival but only if they are working both days," Dochstader pointed out. "Those who work on Saturday and Sunday can go up on Friday if they wish, and participate in the opening ceremonies and really enjoy the event," she said.

The NASCAR Sprint Cup Race at Watkins Glen will be Thursday through Sunday, Aug. 2-5. “The Argetsinger Grandstand between turns 2 and 3 will be entirely staffed by our volunteers on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 4 and 5,” Dochstader said. They will usher, check tickets and two will be greeters who give directions.

"We need six people for six to seven-hour shifts starting between 8:30 a.m. and noon on Saturday because that day is pretty laid back," said Dochstader said. "On Sunday, we will need 20 people," she said.

"Our Sunday volunteers need to plan on a full day because it's important they get to the track before traffic gets heavy. Eight of the shifts start early and end in the middle of the race so those folks can choose to watch the rest of the race or leave to beat the traffic." The later shifts start at noon and 1 p.m. The afternoon volunteers need to stay until the race is over and the fans have left the grandstand so they are available in case anyone needs help. "This is a rain or shine event so we are expected to stay until it is over both days," Dochstader noted.

Camping at the sprint cup race is limited and only for those who work both days.

Volunteers for the wine festival and the sprint cup race must be at least 18 years old. Carpooling is available. "Those who want to camp or carpool should let me know soon," she said.

For more information, call Bev Dochstader at 570-724-2079 or email her at

Bradford Firefighters

At 1708 Wednesday evening City firefighters were dispatched to an Oakwood Avenue residence for a working garage fire endangering the nearby home. A three man crew out of Central Fire Station responded with Tower 1 and MA 1 alone as the East Bradford crew was already out on an ambulance call. The Central crew arrived on scene at 1711 to find the garage fully involved. A hand line was quickly deployed bringing the blaze under control by 1718. The quick actions of this crew saved the nearby home from becoming involved in fire. They were assisted on scene by a full crew of off duty firefighters working out of Engine 1. While on scene another EMS call was dispatched and answered by additional off duty members. Firefighters were assisted on scene by City of Bradford Police.
