Lovell Street blaze results in domestic animal casualty

February 28, 2013

Dauntless, Revloc respond By Ian Wissinger

of Mainline Newspapers

On the afternoon of Thursday, Feb. 21, firefighters from Dauntless and Revloc Volunteer Fire Companies responded to a call on the 100 block of Lovell Street in Ebensburg, near the former Appledale Golf Course. According to Dauntless Chief Jeff Evans, a passerby first noted smoke emanating from the side of a home around 1 p.m., and promptly dialed the local emergency line. Dauntless arrived on-scene shortly thereafter, to witness at least one facade of the residence enveloped in flame. Firefighters set to work, extinguishing the blaze within minutes, just as Revloc had arrived to provide backup. There were no people in the house at the time, Evans recalled. Though no repair estimate was available, the chief said that he believed the home could be restored in relatively short order. The face of the structure that had gone up in flames had scorched siding, and heat caused a basement window to shatter, allowing smoke into the home. “That’s the worst part, as far as I could tell,� Evans said. “There’s some smoke damage.� Cleanup crews have begun work on the building’s interior in an effort to remove odors and residues associated with the smoke. In the meantime, the building’s inhabitants will be staying with in-town relatives. “Hopefully they’re only displaced for a short amount of time,�

the chief said. There is a sad and unfortunate twist to the story. Firefighters, though swift in defeating the fire, remained puzzled as to what had started it. When the homeowner arrived, the individual pointed to a now-charred spot, adjacent to the home, and explained that a doghouse once sat there. The doghouse was fitted with electric heat, it was explained. “Something went wrong, the doghouse caught first, and the flames spread to the house,� Evans said. The family owned two dogs, and one that was staying in the house escaped the blaze without injury. The other, resting in the doghouse at the time, did not make it.

Altoona Curve offers season full of community promotions

Mainline Extra

Thursday, February 28, 2013

Many programs of special interest to Mainline organizations available

By Justin Eger

of Mainline Newspapers

With opening day of Curve baseball little over a month away, it seems a fine time to starting thinking about oiling up the baseball glove and taking a few practice swings out back. Indeed, as Curve players warm up for an exhibition against the Pittsburgh Pirates on March 30, with the start of the season soon to follow on April 11, Curve promoters are excited to discuss a series of annual promotions designed to bring people out to the ballpark for a few hours of food and fun. And while the Curve are situated in Altoona, there are plenty of promotions geared toward getting their mountain-residing neighbors in on the action, too. “These things are how we show our support for the communities and those around us,� explained Corey Homan, director of group sales for the Altoona Curve. We like to focus on different groups and give them a little bit of recognition. It’s the least we can do for those who support us throughout the year.� Central to the Curve’s partnership with the Cresson area will be this summer’s Cresson Area Community Night. Scheduled for June 19, and offering fireworks after the game, the evening is developed annually in partnership between the Curve and the Cresson Area Chamber of Commerce. In keeping with the Chamber’s mission, the night is designed to showcase a number of local businesses, bringing them out to the ballpark with groups of specially priced tickets that offer on-field and advertising promotions with the Curve. Those packages start at around $175, and offer at least 25 tickets, but just in case you might not have a group that large to bring along for some peanuts and CrackerJacks, never fear, as Homan has a line on special Cresson-area pricing for the evening. “We can set something up for individuals, too, or people who might be able to get a group together, but not 25 people,�

Homan said. “We certainly don’t want to exclude anybody, so anyone interested in those options is welcome to call me and we’ll set them up with some discounted pricing.� However, aside from Cresson Area Community Night, The Curve is also offering a series of community promotions that some of our friends and neighbors should definitely take advantage of. First on the agenda are two Sunday events aimed toward those youngsters in our community that enjoy America’s favorite pastime. On April 28 and May 12, the Altoona Curve will partner with UPMC to offer youth clinics from 10 a.m. to noon. For just the cost of admission to the regular 1 p.m. game on those days, kids will be able to take the field and work out with actual Curve players, practicing pitching, batting stances, fielding, base running, and more. “It’s a lot of fun for the kids to get to go out on the field with the players,� Homan explained. “The players usually get pretty creative, so we end up having a pretty good time.� Following the calendar ahead a few more weeks, Armed Forces Appreciation Night is going to be Sunday, May 26. Everyone is welcome and those who purchase a block of 25 or more tickets will receive a group discount, group announcement on video board with all groups from the evening, a listing in the free game-day program and one representative from the group can throw-out a first-pitch, all similar to the promotions offered for Cresson Community Night. Armed Forces Night, Homan added, is a great way to salute our serving military and our veterans who have all given so much to protect the way of life that we enjoy every day. Looking toward the summer, a few more nights of interest to youngsters are on the board. On June 15, July 6, and Aug. 3, the Curve will welcome scouting groups from throughout our local communities to the field. For the cost of admission to the 6 p.m. game on those

days, the scouts can take the field to lead the group in the Pledge of Allegiance, and be recognized for the scouting accomplishments. However, it’s after the game when the real fun begins, as the scouts are invited to camp out on the field for the night and enjoy an evening under the stars. “It’s a pretty cool promotion, and we try to make it fun,� Homan said. “We even have a scouting patch for everyone who attends, so they can add it to their collection and meet a requirement with their troop.� The start of August will also see the

Curve offer Cambria County Night, but there’s plenty of time to talk about that as more plans are finalized over the summer. For now, anyone interested in any of the above promotions is encouraged to call Homan at (814) 283-3122 or drop him an e-mail at choman@altoonacurve.com. Tickets for all of this summer’s Curve games go on sale on March 2, this Saturday, from 9 a.m. to noon. The Curve will also be hosting National Anthem tryouts during the day, so anyone with an ear for music should certainly consider signing up to perform.

County gives low priority to Blacklick bridge closed since 2009

Mainline Extra

Thursday, February 28, 2013

By Jim Lauffer

of Mainline Newspapers

The county-owned bridge on Red Mill Road in Blacklick Township has been closed to vehicular traffic since 2009 — though folks on foot and on recreational vehicles often traverse its

condemned span. According to township residents Joe and Karen Gordon, in 2010 the Cambria County Planning Commission and the engineering firm HF Lenz Co., Johnstown, recommended that the bridge be completely removed. The Gordons attended the

Tuesday, Feb. 19, meeting of the Blacklick Township supervisors and gave them a brief update on the bridge. They noted that the planning commission and HF Lenz made their recommendation because of the low traffic along Red Mill Road in the area of the bridge. When the Gordons asked

both for an estimated removal date and about the possibility of replacing the bridge, neither the commission nor the engineers offered a timeline for the bridge’s removal or addressed the possibility of replacing it. According to the Gordons, they were told that if funding became available, con-

sideration might be given to addressing the bridge’s removal. They were also told that the bridge was not a high priority, given the area’s low traffic. The Gordons believe that funding — in the form of

School of Sciences nears completion

Despite the winter weather, work continues inside the School of Sciences on the campus of Saint Francis University in Loretto. Photo by Justin Eger.

By Justin Eger

of Mainline Newspapers

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to miss the extensive construction thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on along the campus mall at Saint Francis University. As they have been for some time, construction workers flutter around the structure that will someday soon house the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s School of Sciences, working through the winter months as they finish up the interior sections of the building. Last week, members of the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s staff offered Mainline Newspapers a tour of the partially complete facilities, explaining the layout of the structure, and how it will impact not only the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s educational opportunities, but social paradigms, as well. Though still months away from occupancy, the School of Sciences is complete enough to show visitors exactly what will be available to students â&#x20AC;&#x201D; provided, of course, they apply a liberal dose of imagination to envision the fixtures and features that will be added as construction wraps up. But what can be gleaned from the current state of the building is an intense effort on the part of designers, including Dr. Ed Zovinka of the chemistry department (who conducted the tour), to use the available space in the most efficient ways possible. To that end, each of the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s science programs will have a home in the new School of Sciences. As it is laid out now, the building houses three floors, a ground floor with entrances that face Loretto, a second floor that opens onto the university mall, and a third floor that is accessible from the main stairwells and the interior elevator. Each floor will house a number of offices, welcoming the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s science staff, as well as classrooms and research space at each of the four corners of the building and along

some hallways. The paths leading from those offices to the classrooms and labs circle a shared central atrium that is open to all three floors and lit by a broad skylight. It is this area that Zovinka envisions can be utilized as a special event area and general area for students to congregate, though he expects that it will be less crowded as other student areas, which led the professor to describe what he sees as one of the key features in the new building: dedicated student zones, each keyed to a particular field of study. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are places for students to call their own, a home for them in the building,â&#x20AC;? Zovinka explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not lounges, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not classrooms, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not research labs, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re places for students of a particular field to go and work together and share.â&#x20AC;? The idea of the dedicated zones for key disciplines like biology, chemistry, and engineering, is something that is unique to this building, largely unseen among the many buildings and structures that university representatives toured as they tried to come up with what they wanted their new building to look like. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a feature, though, that Zovinka hopes will help draw students together, helping them network explore their fields in new and exciting ways, simply because they feel comfortable doing so. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want the students to feel like they belong here,â&#x20AC;? the professor explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have their own spaces, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be right down the hall in our offices, so we can be teaching and collaborating all the time. Science is better learned when it is shared, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve really paid a lot of attention to with this building.â&#x20AC;? Indeed, even the classrooms and layouts maintain an eye toward interdisciplinary endeavors.

 

    





While each field has its own floor or wing, from the computer labs on the ground floor to the aquarium and marine labs on the second floor to the chem labs on the third floor, there is room for cross-pollination, as it were. Many of the labs and classrooms are glassfronted, open to passerby in an effort to showcase just what is going on in the many fields of study offered by SFU, as are the offices themselves. Though still missing many key pieces, even a casual observation reveals how open and well-lit the building will be â&#x20AC;&#x201D; no Hollywood madmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basement lab here, but rather a clean, state-of-the-art facility that offers a multitude of educational opportunities for budding scientists to learn, grow, and share in their research. And there will be plenty of research going on. All of the various fields and sub-disciplines will be represented in some way, including chemistry, biology, genetics, physics, engineering, computer sciences, marine biology, microbiology, and more. And for the first time, the university will have dedicated space for undergraduate research in those fields, rather than a more exclusive location reserved for graduate level programs. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something that Zovinka himself is keenly excited about, explaining that â&#x20AC;&#x153;we can run it like we want to, and how weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always dreamed of.â&#x20AC;? With the $21 million price tag attached to the structure, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to note that Zovinka felt that the university was able to get literally everything they could have possibly hoped for under one roof. When asked, the professor said that the university had made no compromises when it came to how the building might have been constructed, though SEE SCHOOL, PAGE 9

Ebensburg facility preps for Team Tennis Tournament

Mainline Extra

Thursday, February 28, 2013

By Ian Wissinger

of Mainline Newspapers

Billed as the Ebensburg Tennis Centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;marquee eventâ&#x20AC;? by Director Jamie Taylor, the sixth annual Team Tennis Tournament is slated to begin around 5 p.m. on Friday, March 8, and run through the following day until a winner can be crowned in each respective division. The appeal of the tournament lies in its all-inclusiveness. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a competitive aspect, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a social event as well,â&#x20AC;? Taylor, who also serves as the centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resident professional, explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It gives our members an opportunity to play competitive tennis, and it welcomes all ages and skill levels.â&#x20AC;? As indicated on the tournamentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s registration form, those seeking to participate can sign up as part of a team (a minimum of three men and three women, or three boys and three girls for the junior category) or individually. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always people looking for teammates. If you sign up, we will find somebody to match you with,â&#x20AC;? Taylor said. The format of the tournament is atypical in that it incorporates a variety of match styles. One menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s singles, one menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doubles, one womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s singles, one womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doubles and two mixed doubles matches comprise each round. Each individual match is comprised of a single set, which in turn breaks down into six games. For those who may not follow tennis on the regular, this breakdown may seem convoluted or confusing, but fret not â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Taylor and Assistant Matt Kozar will be

present to direct all gameplay and ensure that the course of the weekend unfolds in a smooth manner. For a complete outline of tournament rules, seek an entry form at the center or visit its website at www.ebensburgtennis center.com. Of course, the bottom line of the Team Tennis Tournament is fun, and that extends especially to junior players who have barely picked up a racket prior to next weekend. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a new feature this year, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a 14-andunder, junior novice division,â&#x20AC;? Taylor said. As opposed to intense, fast-paced match play, participants will compete in more simplified serving and returning competitions, with scoring featured as more of an afterthought. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more of a workshop. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for kids who are inexperienced, but who want to grow their game and begin entering into competitive situations,â&#x20AC;? the director said. In previous incarnations, the Team Tennis Tournament has welcomed casual newcomers, facility regulars and seasoned competitors from as far as Greensburg, State College, Altoona and Hollidaysburg. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We get a good turnout every year,â&#x20AC;? Taylor noted. To enter, the cost is $25 per person, though this also covers a T-shirt, food and refreshments â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not to mention a trophy for winners and runners-up in each division. In other center news, Taylor said the same clinics and lesson opportunities offered in the fall have carried over to spring, following identical time and day schedules. An adult beginner

clinic has been added for those who have â&#x20AC;&#x153;some tennis experienceâ&#x20AC;? but would like to improve on their game. This clinic, taught by Kozar, occurs every Thursday from 5:30 - 7 p.m. For information on how to enroll, call the Ebensburg Tennis Center at (814) 471-2981. Taylor also wished to remind the public that the facility holds an open-house, or free clinic for juniors (those ages 18-and-under) and adults every spring, and that this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s installment is scheduled for the Saturday after Easter weekend, or April 6. From 11 a.m. - noon, Taylor will instruct the younger crowd, and from noon - 1 p.m., he will spend quality on-court time with adult participants. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those who show up donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even need to bring a racket â&#x20AC;&#x201C; everything is provided,â&#x20AC;? the director said. Taylor wished to thank seven local sponsors, each who contributed to this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Team Tennis Tournament, including Cavalier Orthodontics, Larry R. Mastrine, M.D., Ophthalmic Associates, Estep Realty Service,

Zane and Sue Bianucci and Family, Timothy J. Sloan,

Seymour & Pettina, and Dr. Kevin Zitnay.

after 180 days, or on Aug. 22, 2013. In regards to the Corridor 219 Plan Steering committee, established by the Cambria County Planning Commission, Shook and Supervisor Tim Bracken appointed themselves members. This committee will examine how Route 219, particularly the segment north of Ebensburg, can be improved and expanded upon. Finally, the board heard Januaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s police report, as provided by Chief Mark Westrick. Thus far, the township has seen 343 total incidents, 25 vehicle

accidents (with four persons injured), 14 criminal offenses (with eight of those individuals facing arrest), 10 assists to other departments, 24 citations issued, four hearings and 43 parking tickets distributed. The Cambria Township Police Departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s total revenues for the month were $1,716. Having navigated their agenda at a fairly swift pace, and having heard brief reports from Vasas and Solicitor Dennis Govachini, the supervisors adjourned and turned their attention to the afternoonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guests, two local Boy

Scouts who had attended the municipal meeting to learn more about how local government

operates. Local scouts Cody Sral and Alex Koenigsburg will use the information gained from Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting as a means of achieving their citizenship in community badge.

Cambria Township has received word that it has qualified for and will receive the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protectionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Growing Greener grant, a $179,000 sum that will aid the municipality in completing a Crestwood-area stormwater infrastructure project. Chairman Robert Shook said that the township will pledge approximately $30,000 toward the project, matching 15 percent of its total cost. He praised Engineer Keith Vasas, representative of the EADS Group, for helping secure the grant, which Cambria had applied for in December. As explained on DEPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website, Growing Greener grant money is distributed via a number of channels; Cambria Township will receive its share through the Pennsylvania Investing in Infrastructure Authority, or PENNVEST. Of renovations that need performed on the Crestwood system, Shook said that a new crossover pipe will be installed, along with wider pipes for the entire stormwater collection unit. Storm inlets and headwalls will be replaced, and the entire network will see resurfacing. Since the project involves a lot of underground service work, it has been contracted out instead of attempted in-house, Shook noted. The project is slated to begin this spring, as Cambria Township must complete grant acceptance paperwork by March 29. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is great news,â&#x20AC;? the chairman said, to which Vasas added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We really needed it.â&#x20AC;? The engineer noted the Crestwood systemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s close proximity to Howellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Run, a trout stream, and cited this as a primary reason for Cambriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s receipt of the award. In other news, the board of supervisors, convening on the afternoon of Monday, Feb. 25, approved a road bond release for Superior Lumber Company, on Rorabaugh Road. The board also signed off on a sewage facilities planning module submitted by P. Joseph Lehman, regarding a proposed Hossâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Steakhouse and Seafood Restaurant soon to be located on Zeman Drive. Vasas confirmed that â&#x20AC;&#x153;everything is in orderâ&#x20AC;? in regards to the propertyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s development, and said that the future restaurant is already connected to the public sewer system. Under recommendation from the Cambria Township Planning Commission, the board approved a subdivision plan submitted by CDM Realty, LLC, and a land development and stormwater management plan, submitted by Cambria Care Center. The board also granted an agriculture security zone request to Gerald and Karen Dillon, which will expire

Future of Munster Township water project remains in question

Mainline Extra

Thursday, February 28, 2013

Residents still stand in opposition to proposed improvements

By Justin Eger

of Mainline Newspapers

With the January announcement that the State Correctional Institution at Cresson would be closed by the middle of 2013, numerous situations were thrown into a state of flux. While the human impact is still being felt, so to are municipalities struggling to cope with the loss of the longtime facility. That situation became abundantly clear as residents of Munster Township once again questioned the status of a proposed waterline project on the evening of Feb. 12, little realizing that the two subjects were so entwined. The discussion began when resident Rick Lee asked just what the

supervisors felt an â&#x20AC;&#x153;affordableâ&#x20AC;? monthly water rate would be. Since late last year, residents have expressed concerns about the impact that a high monthly water bill would have on their budgets. At the time, though, supervisors stated repeatedly that the proposed cost, roughly $75 per month, was simply too high, and that the board wanted to bring that rate down. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We would like it to be comparable to what they have in Cresson, but...â&#x20AC;? supervisor Jeff Freidof explained, his sentence trailing off and leading directly into discussion of the waterline project and SCI Cresson. Engineer Richard Wray explained that, when this waterline project was proposed, the Cresson

Township Municipal Authority was using figures that included the prison as a form of revenue, making up approximately 48 percent of Cresson Townshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overall water sales. With the prison gone, though, there now exists what has often been described as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;material differenceâ&#x20AC;? on the part of CTMAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s figures. How those new numbers will impact Munsterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s project remains anybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guess, as state lending agency PENNVEST has asked for new calculations based on the estimated revenues Cresson Township will have without the prison, but said agency has not yet offered any direct opinion on the Munster water project. In short, despite having been provided a funding offer, the project remains in a perpetual state of reassessment until the state can figure out how to proceed. That said, Cresson Township is already looking to address its altered revenue. At the beginning of the year, the municipal authority increased its rates by 10 percent to address financial concerns. Now, with the prison expected to close, and with little idea as to what, if anything, might replace it, rates might go up another 10 percent initially, and another 15 percent on top of that. So what was once defined a â&#x20AC;&#x153;reasonableâ&#x20AC;? rate for the Munster Township supervisors may very well need to be reconsidered, though that did little in the way of impeding the concerns of those few Munster residents standing opposed to not only new waterlines but new sewer lines, as well. The mandated sewer project drew further attention from Lee, as he asked why the state simply wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let Munster address the matter on its own, going lot by lot to correct perceived deficiencies. As has been stated many times, such an option was considered early on in the process to address on-lot sewer problems in the township, and was even submitted as a part of an alternative proposal by the township. However, the Department of Environmental Protection has final say in the matter, using information gleaned from the local sewer enforcement agency officers. All this is in turn driven by federal mandates to clean up all the tributaries that connect to the

DEP on his own to get better information related to which homes in Munster created the problem, all with an eye toward achieving compliance at a local level. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can take care of them without a central line.â&#x20AC;?

there were a few items left off the wish list. “We had originally intended to have a coffee shop here on the ground floor, but the engineering department needed a little more space, so we had to cut that out,” Zovinka joked, before adding, “It might have been nice to have a few more offices, because, looking at other universities that have done this kind of thing, there tends to be some growth in student population, which might necessitate a need for more faculty, but those are the kinds of problems we like.”

As the School of Sciences opens later this year, expect plenty of attention to be paid to the university, but once the excitement dies down, Zovinka hopes that the new building will help the students pursuing degrees in the sciences feel like they have a place where they truly belong. “It’s not just about teaching, and it’s not just about research, and it’s not just about a community,” Zovinka explained. “It’s about all of those things. It’s about providing an experience that students want and need, and if we want to keep building that community, we have to make this place a part of who they are.”

Ebensburg reminding residents of tax filing procedures

Mainline Extra

Ebensburg Borough officials are reminding residents that all annual earned income tax returns are to be mailed to the new county-wide tax collector, Berkheimer Associates. The proper address is Berkheimer Associates, PO Box 25160, Lehigh Valley, PA 18002-5160. Forms and additional information can be found online at www.hab-inc.com. Beginning in 2012, earned income taxes were no longer payable to local tax collectors in each municipality. Instead, Act

32 of 2008 requires all local earned income taxes in Cambria County to be paid to a single county-wide collector. The earned income tax is a onepercent tax levied on the earned income and net profits of all Cambria County residents. This tax is collected under authority given by the Local Tax Enabling Act passed by the State legislature in 1965 and by local ordinances. The one percent tax is collected by Berkheimer Associates, and distributed equally between the local munic-

NC Borough to purchase police rifles By Sarah Wolford

of Mainline Newspapers

After much discussion, the Northern Cambria Borough Council accepted a donation from the Barnesboro American Legion for the purchase of a patrol rifle for the boroughâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s police department. Benjamin Heauther, of the Barnesboro Legion, first approached the council at their January meeting in regards to the donation, which the Legion specified could only be used for the purchase of a patrol rifle. Council had originally tabled the issue after discussing it in an executive session of their January meeting. Councilor James Sabella said at that time that council wishes to further evaluate rifles the police department currently had first and that the issue would be revisited at the February meeting. At the February meeting, Northern Cambria Police Officer Jeff McEvoy reported to council that he had investigated selling several of the departments guns, as council had requested. McEvoy said he had spoken with a consultant who had suggested they list the guns on gunsinternational.com and include digital pictures. The department is looking to sell 2 Colt MDL SP1 AR-15 rifles, a Winchester Defender Shotgun, a Marlin 9MM Rifle, a High Standard 12GA Shotgun, and a Remington 870 Express. McEvoy noted that the borough should not ask any less than $1,400 each for the AR-15s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we trade them in, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get nothing for them. If we bid out to the public, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get nothing for them. In [the consultantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s] opinion, in 10 days, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be sold on this website.â&#x20AC;? When council was asked what they would be doing with the money they receive from selling the guns and if that money would go into the police budget, councilor Wilbur Kelly, who was in favor of accepting the donation and purchasing the guns in January, said he hoped to see the department ultimately have two AR-15s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One to back the other,â&#x20AC;? he said. Kelly also asked if the borough had taken money out of the police budget at an earlier meeting. Councilor Salvatore Taranto said they had, for lawyerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fees. However, borough manager Dee Nagle pointed out that was from last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget, and Taranto said that the current yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s police budget was the same as it had been in previous years. Nagle asked council if they wanted to sell one or both of the departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current AR-15s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought you wanted to bid out one and keep the one with the scope.â&#x20AC;? McEvoy said it would cost approximately $1,965 right now for a new one with â&#x20AC;&#x153;all the bells and whistles.â&#x20AC;? Kelly added that he thought if the department sells all the guns listed, they should have enough for two new AR-15s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the guns we have now are a liability for the borough and for police,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make them anymore.â&#x20AC;? Sabella said before making that decision, the borough would have to see how much they get through the sales first. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in favor of accepting the $1,300 [from the Legion] and getting one new one, and then seeing where to go from there.â&#x20AC;? McEvoy said that was fine, his only concern was if the second rifle would ever be purchased. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to spend 18 months fighting for another rifle,â&#x20AC;? he told council.

Bridge

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3

Pennsylvania Act 13 (Pa. HB1950) Marcellus Shale impact fees â&#x20AC;&#x201D; has become, or will become, available for Cambria County to use in addressing the dilapidated condition of a bridge that it owns, a bridge that has been closed for nearly four years. As reported in September 2012, Cambria County was slated to receive more than $166,000 from the Marcellus Shale gas industry as a result of Act 13. In addition municipalities in the county will receive slices of the impact-fee pie, with the amounts dependent on the number of wells within their borders. For example, according to the webstie StateImpact Pennsylvania, the following local municipalities were to receive funds: Blacklick Township ($692.15), Jackson Township ($10,637.97), Nanty Glo Borough ($736.97), and Vintondale Borough ($119.51) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the source of the websiteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amounts was the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission. The totals were announced by Gov. Tom Corbett in October 2012, The Gordons would like to see

Cambria County officials use some of the impact-fee money either to demolish the bridge (after addressing the waterline, of course) or to repair or replace it. The issue of the bridge has languished for years, and the Gordons would like officials to give it a higher priority than they have. To that end, the Gordons passed out a sheet that has a paragraph briefly explaining the situation and also lists contact information for both the Cambria County Commissioners and Chris Allison, the Cambria County Transportation Planner. They urged meeting attendees to contact county officials about the bridge by either sending them an email or mailing them a letter. The contact information for the Cambria County Commissioners is as follows: email (commishcorner@co.cambria.pa.us) or mail (Cambria County Commissioners, Cambria County Courthouse, 200 S. Center St., Ebensburg, PA 15931). To contact the county transportation planner, send an email (callison@co.cambria.pa.us) or a letter (Chris Allison, 401 Candlelight Dr., Ebensburg, PA 15931).

ACCEPTING MEDICAL ASSISTANCE!

By Jim Lauffer

of Mainline Newspapers

In time of dwindling state funding, municipalities must resort to fiscal belt-tightening to balance their books. When the budget is tight, municipal officials hope â&#x20AC;&#x201D; with fingers crossed â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that no unexpected expense makes its way into the boroughâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ledger. Crossed fingers, however, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always work as expected. Among the correspondence reviewed by members of Vintondale Borough council at last Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting was a check from Samco Insurance Company for the amount estimated to repair the boroughâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dump truck â&#x20AC;&#x201D; an unexpected expense to be sure. The truck had been damaged while plowing â&#x20AC;&#x201D; more exactly, while backing up during the plowing of borough streets, the bed and one of the salt spreaderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mounts had been damaged. The Samco adjuster took the truck to Brumbaugh Body Co., Hollidaysburg, where the estimate for repairing the bed and spreader was given. Because the total cost of the repair exceeded the amount of the check that Samco sent, council members asked borough worker Mark Colangelo specific questions about repairing the truck and about whether it might be to the boroughâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s long-term benefit to replace the bed. After pointing out that he continues to use both the truck and the spreader â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to avoid stressing the three undamaged mounting tabs, he no longer completely fills the spreader â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Colangelo acknowledged that the truckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bed is â&#x20AC;&#x153;rotted outâ&#x20AC;? in places and that replacing it might be the better option in the long run. Administrative assistant Kim Connell gave council members a quick overview of how much money was in the road fund and how much was expected for that fund in 2013 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in addition to the insurance companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s check. Believing that the best course was to replace the truckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bed â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and more importantly, believing that they could afford to replace it â&#x20AC;&#x201D; council members voted to authorize Mayor Brian Nealen to contact the insurance company in order to schedule an appointment to install a new truck bed.

In other business, council member Bonnie Lucas was tasked with asking solicitor Joseph Green about his progress in revising the boroughâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nuisance ordinance, which was adopted in 1998. Green had been asked to write some â&#x20AC;&#x153;biteâ&#x20AC;? into the ordinance, which contains no penalties for residents who violate the statute. Without penalties, â&#x20AC;&#x153;our hands are tied,â&#x20AC;? said Lucas, referring to the futility of trying to enforce the ordinance as currently written. Council members praised Window World employees for their work in installing new windows on the ground floor of the municipal building. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They went above and beyond,â&#x20AC;? said council president Debra McHugh. In addi-

tion to being aesthetically pleasing, the new windows have already begun paying for themselves in the form of reduced heating costs. At their January meeting, council members discussed whether they had completed the training required to be compliant with the requirements of the National Incident Management System. During the past month, Connell followed up on that discussion by calling the NIMS agency and talking with a representative. The upshot is that NIMS has more current records than the borough office and that council members are indeed NIMS compliant and do not have to take any courses in 2013.

Rules for paying taxes for household help are complicated

By Tim Grant

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

The rules related to paying taxes for nannies and other household help can be complicated, which is part of the reason a high percentage of nannies and other household workers are not paid legally. Some estimates put the percentage of families who employ household help yet cheat on the nanny tax as high as 80 to 95 percent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It really depends on the area,â&#x20AC;? said Barbara Kline, president of White House Nannies in Bethesda, Md. The issue of paying taxes for household workers made big news in 1993 when President Bill Clinton nominated two women -- Zoe Baird and Kimba Wood -- for U.S. attorney general and both ended up pulling their names out of consideration when investigators found they had failed to pay taxes for their household employees. Caroline Kennedy withdrew her name in 2009 as a candidate for New

Yorkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vacant U.S. Senate seat for similar reasons, and outgoing Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nomination also was threatened for tax-related mistakes he made, which also included an issue related to a housekeeper. In general, families who paid a household worker -- nannies, housekeepers or gardeners -- more than $1,800 in wages in 2012 are responsible for withholding taxes for those employees. Stephanie Breedlove, a payroll tax expert for the household worker industry, has built a company that helps about 10,000 families nationwide set up payroll systems and stay in compliance with the nanny tax law. The idea for her business came shortly after she hired a nanny. She could not figure out how to pay the worker legally and she did not personally know of anyone who was following the rules. She launched her business about six months before the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nannygateâ&#x20AC;? scandal involving Baird and Wood. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When the scandal broke, it was very helpful in bringing more awareness to what we do,â&#x20AC;? said Breedlove, a partner at Breedlove and Associates in Austin, Texas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was the first time media attention became focused on this large group of workers who were not being paid legally,â&#x20AC;? She estimates between 5 million and 10 million people work in the household care industry. Breedlove said families who pay the nanny tax are eligible for childcare tax credits of between $2,000 and $2,500 depending on their tax rate. Families also are likely to have a stronger and longer relationship with household workers when they are paid legally, and the family doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to lose sleep worrying about potential back taxes or penalties that come with tax evasion charges, she said. But caregivers are by far the biggest winners and the biggest losers when it comes to the nanny tax. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Employers are contributing to their retirement via Social Security and Medicare, which is significant,â&#x20AC;?

Breedlove said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The workers can receive up to five times what they put in during their working careers. That is significant for making it through their golden years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Also, when you are paid legally, you get a credit history,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost impossible to get a car loan or home loan without a pay stub to prove you are working. Another important benefit when workers are paid legally is access to unemployment benefits when they are between jobs.â&#x20AC;?

None of these benefits are available to household employees who do not receive a payroll check. The IRS form Schedule H has been referred to as the nanny tax form. Federal data shows the number of Schedule H forms filed by U.S. taxpayers has declined from 320,377 in 1996 to 225,441 in 2006 -- the latest year data is available. The nanny tax does not apply to everyone who does work at a private residence, only workers whose hours are controlled by the person hiring

them. Contractors who are hired to do specific jobs -- such as lawn mowing or pool cleaning -- at the house do not fall under the nanny tax. But if the homeowner dictates what days and what hours a worker reports to the house for housekeeping or childcare duties, there is a good chance the nanny tax laws apply.

After learning that the computer control panel and effluent sampler went down at the Palmer Avenue Pump Station, the Patton Borough Council discussed long-term planning for additional upgrades to the pump station, including pending clean out of the reed beds. It was reported at the councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tuesday, Feb. 12 meeting that the computer panel had gone down and cost $4,256.37 to be repaired by GES Automation Technology out of Harrisburg. The effluent sampler also went down and could not be repaired. Ken Trinkley had done some work with the other sampler to keep the plant running, however, the other sampler had to be immediately replaced, as the plant is required to have one sampler operable at all times. The estimated cost to replace the effluent sample is $4,300. Council was told that the average life expectancy of equipment at the plant and pump stations is five years. Because most of the equipment in use at these facilities was installed during the 2004 upgrade, council was advised to budget for these types of equipment repair and replacement expenses in the future. As for the cleaning out of the reed beds, council was told some replanting may need to be done afterward and some waste may need to be hauled away. On a brighter note, the current equipment did have a longer life expectancy than they originally thought. Council decided to discuss a slight sewage rate increase to use for equipment expenses next year. Mayor Stephen Bakajza asked if Trinkley could provide council with possible cost estimates for replacing equipment before they moved forward. Council president John Crowell agreed, saying that council wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to raise rates only to realize they hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t raised them enough to cover the expenses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to add on and then realize we need to add more,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to investigate further.â&#x20AC;? Council agreed, saying that they needed to be proactive rather than reactive in this situation. One councilor also noted that rates had not changed since 2004. Councilman Joseph Noel said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to slam people with increase, but we should ask Ken for more specifics.â&#x20AC;? Moving on to matters involving the water department, council was told that the borough no longer needs to send each household the Annual Consumer Confidence Report via mail. They are now allowed to post the report to the borough website out of a courtesy. Not having to mail the report will save the borough approximately $600 in postage, office supplies, and man hours. These savings will help to offset the cost of new compliance fees the borough must pay to the Susquehanna River Basin Commission. The borough is already required to pay the $750 fee for wells, even though the wells are not yet online. Also in regards to water and sewer, council discussed an upgrade to water and sewer billing that would allow customers the option to receive their bill via email in PDF format. Council said they decided to give customers the option due to the increased cost of postage. However, customers who receive the bill via email will not be able to pay the bill online. A check will still have to be mailed.

Suggestions sought as Hastings prepares for milestones

Mainline Extra

By Evan Novella

for Mainline Newspapers

On Sunday, Feb. 24, a crowd of about 20 gathered in the warm confines of the Hastings Fire Hall to discuss the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dual celebration of 125 years since its founding, and 100 years of the fire companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s charter, both milestones occurring in 2014. Inside the fire hall, underneath a large blue banner which read: â&#x20AC;&#x153;We protect the ones you love,â&#x20AC;? the attendees sat patiently, sharing with one another as if it was just a friendly get-together more so than preparing an important blueprint for their beloved townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upcoming centennial next summer. However, this is not to say the mood was nonchalant at the hourlong meeting. Sitting at the head table was Hastings Volunteer Fire Company secretary John Bem,

along with vice president Dolly Frontino, Fire Chief Joe Huber, and a few others. The group walked through the game plan for a week of activities to celebrate Hastingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two ceremonies. With the first of the two being the fire company celebration for the week of Aug. 4, 2014 (officially begins that Tuesday, Aug. 5), the board of officials at Hastings Fire Hall presented an overview for the weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s events for Tuesday through Friday. Some of the activities are cemented in place, while others are subject to change. A gun raffle is being planned for Sunday, Aug. 2, preceding the upcoming week. The fire company is open for suggestions from anyone willing to provide ideas for activities. Some of them listed were: a golf tournament, two banquets each called the High-Hatters Banquet, and the Low-Hatters Banquet

beginning at 5 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., respectively. Opening ceremonies, prayers, and a welcoming address are also part of the occasion. Accordingly, there is a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Past Presidents and Old Timersâ&#x20AC;? Banquet with an election of officers to be selected for the fire company the following day. After business has been settled, there will be a food / beer stand along with entertainment under the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Big Top.â&#x20AC;? On Saturday, Aug. 9, there is the fan favorite, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Battle of the Barrelâ&#x20AC;? (with a kiddie version also possible) event to close the weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 100-year celebration. Even with all these affairs, former Fire Company President Ron Easly professed his concern for child and young-adult participation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kids arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as interested in becoming a junior firefighters as they were back in the 1980s, though I am proud of these young

405 High Street in Ebensburg. Various pastors will participate as they speak on the Seven Words of the Cross. Those bringing messages will be pastors Father Dan Sinisi, Saint Francis University; Rev. Chuck Davis, United Church of Christ; Rev. Clayton Harriger, Gypsy Christian Church; Rev. James Tomb, (Retired) Presbyterian Church; Rev. Marvin Lowry, Evangelical Bible Church, Revloc; Rev. James Farrah, Ebensburg Presbyterian Church; Rev. Doug Barkley, Ebensburg Baptist

Church; Rev. Rob Osborn, Lakeside Community Church of the Nazarene and Rev. Duane Kaufman, Jesus Saves Church at Mundys Corner. Attorney Fremont McKenrick and Tom Nagy will provide music. Various church choirs will sing. The community is invited to worship at this annual Good Friday threehour service that reaches out to all faiths and recognizes the 'journey to the Cross' by Jesus. Rev. Dr. Frank Brosius and First Christian Church will host this worship service.

boys that are a part of our organization today,â&#x20AC;? he said. In fact, getting Hastings younger population interested in the fire company was the main topic of discussion through most of the dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gathering. If firefighting does not pique your son or daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interest, perhaps a good time will. In acknowledgment of the town of Hastingsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 125th birthday, Hastings is preparing to go all out. A parade, free movie night, tents full of party games, and a dance for the area teens were all ideas which were already on the agenda along with others being tossed around. Bem and Frontino and the rest of the members seemed more than

willing to take to heart any possibilities to bring the community together for this monumental week. The session ended with another meeting planned to take place on Sunday, April 28 of this year. Leading participants urge locals to throw in their two cents on what may attract more people to the coming festivities. If you have a suggestion, or if you would like more information on the Hastings Borough Centennial or the fire company celebration, you can call the Hastings Fire Company at 247-8655, Bem at 247-8184, Frontino at 247-6296, or fire company treasurer Mara Taranto at 247-8346 or 948-6353.

Community Good Friday Service set The clergy of Ebensburg announce the activities of Good Friday. The annual three-hour service of Good Friday will begin at noon at First Christian Church,

Seat still open in Cherry Tree Council

Mainline Extra

Thursday, February 28, 2013

By Paula Varner

of Mainline Newspapers

Cherry Tree Borough Council has dealt with its fair share of vacancies lately. Late fall, councilman Joe Lemmer retired from his day job, sold his home, and moved from the area. He resigned leaving the borough down one councilmember. The borough is also searching for a secretary. Currently, Lisa Morvinsky is acting as the boroughâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s secretary until a replacement can be found. The borough is advertising in local publications hoping to secure an interested party. A potential secretary does not need to be a Cherry Tree resident, said council president Lisa Harbaugh. Council, however, would prefer the interested person have some experience in municipal government and they must be fluent with computers. To serve on borough council, an individual must be a resident of Cherry Tree Borough for at least one year and be a registered voter. Both concerns were reiterated during the February meeting of council as the borough continues to search for replacements. In other matters, council agreed to purchase a new spreader box for its dump

truck. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The (current box) is always being repaired and the repairs are costly,â&#x20AC;? said Morvinsky. While the price of the new spreader box is $10,000, council believes they will save money in the long run. Harbaugh supported the expense. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The current box isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t working well,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(At times) we have men shoveling out salt.â&#x20AC;? Councilman Ron Fox was tasked with ordering the box. When reports were made, council learned its Chief of Police Mike Rummel was in contact with the Attorney Generalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office. Rummel is seeking additional grant money for the police department. Rummel also addressed council when the discussion moved to the Parks and Rec Department. With council continuing to work toward restoring Cherry Tree Park, Rummel offered to contact the Purchase Line School District and inquire what their plans were for the playground equipment sitting at the now shuttered North Elementary building. The districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intentions for the equipment are unknown but nonetheless council encouraged Rummelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inquiry. The next meeting of council will be March 12 at 7 p.m.

Officer addresses crime rate By Justin Eger

of Mainline Newspapers

Whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cabin fever brought on by the winter weather or something more nefarious, the Cresson Township Police Department has been dealing with a significant spike in criminal activity since the start of the year. Though barely just two weeks into the second month of the year at the time of the regular monthly meeting of the township supervisors on Feb. 14, Officer Vince Finochio reported on a significant upswing in criminal activity spread out over the four municipalities patrolled by Cresson Townshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s officers. As he provided the regular monthly police report, Finochio noted that January saw a total of 163 calls made to the police department over the course of the month. Ranging from household disputes and nuisance calls to more serious activities, the criminal complaints shows no sign of letting up as the year wears on, as Finochio said that the department is responding to a â&#x20AC;&#x153;very busyâ&#x20AC;? time of the year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re probably up over 260 calls already for the year,â&#x20AC;? Finochio said, adding the departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s January total to those already observed in February. Detailing the more significant crimes, Finochio reported that the department was involved in helping the Altoona Police Department pursue a rape case against one Daniel Markel of Altoona. Though Markel

and his victim are both residents of Blair County, Finochio stated that the alleged assault took place within Cresson Townshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s borders, as Markel brought his victim to the Lemon House Grounds picnic area to secure privacy for the act. The victim then reported the crime in Altoona, and the city police department asked for the townshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assistance in the matter. Markel is currently jailed on $50,000 bail. More directly related to the region, the officer also reported on an interrupted burglary that took place on Country Club Road. A homeowner returned to their property one evening, only to find the home burglarized. The thief fled, but not before the homeowner had secured a license plate number. The ensuring investigation helped the police nab the criminal, but further research has led the township officers to reopen a series of burglary cases that occurred in the spring of last year. The officer also noted that the department has completed around two dozen drug arrests since the beginning of the year, which he feels owes to the diligence that the department is putting into their work. Finochio added that there have been relatively positive responses from elected officials in the three other municipalities patrolled by Cresson Township â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Lilly Borough, Washington Township, and Tunnelhill Borough. Officials in those municipalities, however, have expressed concern with the court systems.

Revisiting the past

The A.W. Buck house, headquarters of the Cambria County Historical Society, once served as a convent for the Sisters of Saint Joseph from the 1920s to the 1990s. Mainly, the nuns taught at Holy Name School and many former students remember taking piano lesons on the enclosed back porch. This photo, taken in the 1950s, depicts a door on the right wing that has since been bricked in. Also, the religious statue in the front yard is surrounded by small pine trees. When the Historical Society bought the property in 1990, the trees were as tall as the house, obscuring the view of the 15-room Victorian mansion. Photo supplied by the Cmabira County Historical Society.
