Ebensburg Ambulance presents service award to longtime members By Ian Wissinger

of Mainline Newspapers

Every year since 2010, the Ebensburg Area Ambulance Association has taken upon itself to recognize outstanding members of the board who have dedicated years of service to the organization. The tradition, suggested by Executive Director Barry Blake, began as a way to honor the late Russell Scanlan, and has persisted as a tribute to those who continue to value and shape the organization. Presently, the EAAA chose to highlight two of its own through its annual service award. Those individuals are David Dahlin and Terrence Sloan. As EAAA Vice President Dan Brodish pointed out, Dahlin has served with the organization for 18 years as board member, and Sloan boasts 38 years, during which he has played a variety of roles, from board member to vice president to manager (the role that eventually morphed into executive director). “It’s important to recognize those years of service. Some people come and stay, and some people go,� Brodish said. “We felt the need to honor two this year, instead of just one,� Blake added. On the evening of Monday, April 8, when the EAAA held their monthly business meeting, Blake and other officials presented Dahlin and Sloan with a plaque bearing their freshly embossed names, as well as the names of past recipients: Scanlan (2010) to Jim Pablic (2011)

to the Honorable Timothy P. Creany (2012). This plaque can be proudly viewed in the ambulance building on Caroline Street. During that same meeting, officials revealed that the EAAA had purchased a new ambulance vehicle, an investment that it had been able to budget for in the 2013 fiscal year. Blake explained the importance of keeping the department’s units, of which there are currently three, up to date. “We make about 2,300 calls a year,� he estimated. “We try to replace one of our vehicles every three-to-four years. The one we just traded in was plagued with problems.� SEE AWARD, PAGE 2

Cambria engineer provides clarification on drainage issue

Mainline Extra

By Ian Wissinger

of Mainline Newspapers

As issue involving an Ebensburg Industrial Park developer and an adjacent property owner may slowly be headed toward resolution. Carlo Falchini hopes so, anyway. At a previous Cambria Township Board of Supervisors meeting, Falchini approached officials with a complaint regarding his neighbor, the local United States Navy Operational Support Center (NOSC), which throughout its nearly 30-year existence has embarked on at least three separate projects, designed to manage heavy amounts of stormwater that run off the property. Falchini claimed that the NOSC had routed its drainage pipes so that the collected stormwater deposits onto his corner lot, which has historically resulted in flooding and general property damage. Presently, the NOSC has applied to the township, asking permission for a fourth stormwater project, and Falchini wants to see that “things are made right� and that this new venture does not cause further harm. As Township Engineer Keith Vasas pointed out, however, this project may in fact benefit the wronged property owner, though the township cannot grant authorization until it obtains a few missing pieces of information. On the afternoon of Monday, April 8, Falchini brought his case before the board of supervisors. He said that, in past projects, the Naval Center has used inaccurate figures and claimed the existence of a stream that he could not find on any survey map. He brought examples of correspondence between himself and the NOSC, with one letter from 2005 showing the NOSC acknowledging “a problem.� Falchini said that, while individuals he had spoken to from the NOSC were responsive and polite, no ultimate action was taken to rectify the continued flooding of his property, a result caused directly by the NOSC’s stormwater drainage system. “Nowadays, if you have to redo anything in the Industrial Park, you’re supposed to put a pond in,� the property owner said, adding that most recent developers in the area had installed ponds as a means of managing stormwater runoff. “You’re telling me the

Indeed, running from Ebensburg to Johnstown and across Cambria County on a daily basis, and making that many calls, can rack up nearly 150,000 miles in three year’s time. Blake and Brodish said the organization wants to stay as reliable and cutting-edge as possible. The new unit is a 2012 F450 and has four-wheel drive, the first of its kind to be

Navy doesn’t have to do that?� Vasas clarified that developers’ responsibility to include a pond with their development plan is a relatively new requirement, and did not figure into the previous ordinance, observed from 1973-1997. The NOSC was built in 1984. The engineer continued by saying that, although the Navy has yet to satisfy construction bond and stormwater agreement bond specifications, all of the engineering data it has submitted thus far for the fourth project is in adherence with township law. “If I were to do the engineering myself, I would have done it the same way,� Vasas said. “They analyzed the right things, and used proven, rational methods of design. I can’t speak to what they did in the past.� The engineer said that NOSC’s current plan actually calls for the removal of stormwater discharges, and the rerouting of its stormwater flow, which should actually benefit Falchini’s property. The engineer did make one interesting observation in regards to the NOSC’s most recent letter. Current township law states that if a developer chooses to alter its stormwater runoff channels, and these changes affect one or more adjacent property owners, then the developer must obtain written permission from said property owners before it can proceed. While the NOSC’s letter did not explicitly state that it had received authorization from Falchini, it strongly implied it, in Vasas’ opinion. Falchini said he did not okay the deal. Despite the discrepancy, Vasas maintained, “This project, in my opinion, might fix your problem,� before adding, “As for past problems, once again, I can’t speak to that.� Falchini still has to sign off on the NOSC’s latest project, and he is not the only party. Three other property owners will be affected by the endeavor, and Falchini said he will meet with them, along with the engineer, to gain a better understanding of the project before granting his permission. “Those three other people have to vote,� he said. In the meantime, the township tabled NOSC’s most recent request for approval, simply on the basis that the developer has not submitted all of the necessary information.

owned by the EAAA. “With the weather up here, you almost need four-wheel drive,� Brodish said. The new unit also fits in with new vehicle codes as mandated by the state – each ambulance has to have painted chevron, or striped lines on its rear doors. “We just want our members to see that we’re putting their dollars to good use,� the vice president said.

Former Gallitzin Township official under investigation for theft

Mainline Extra

Thursday, April 11, 2013

By Justin Eger

of Mainline Newspapers

Though Leonard Cuomo hasn’t been a supervisor in Gallitzin Township for some years, the impact of his time on the board is still being felt by the rural community. After being voted out of office several years ago, Cuomo was retained by the majority supervi-

sors to continue secretarial duties with the municipality. That decision, as well as the township’s choice to allow Cuomo to work from his own home, drew a great deal of criticism from residents of the municipality, much of which fell on deaf ears. Now, years (and one more election) later, an investigation has finally been opened into what was long believed by community mem-

bers: that Cuomo had been illegally accessing township funds for personal use. Charges were filed against Cuomo in the office of District Magistrate Charity Nileski in February, alleging that the former supervisor and standing secretary had committed felony theft against the municipality. Felony charges of theft by failure to make required dispensation of funds, theft by unlawful taking, and

receiving stolen property were filed on Feb. 19 following the initial investigation by the Pennsylvania State Police. While PSP representatives have not returned phone calls made by Mainline Newspapers requesting comment on the case, reports allege that the 75-year-old Cuomo appropriat-

“She’s pretty, and she’s a Chevy,� said EMS technician Katrina Murowski of the Blacklick Valley Foundation & Ambulance Service’s new ambulance. The service’s board voted to purchase the ambulance in October 2012, and the service took possession of it on March 23 at the close of EMS Update 2013, the 26th annual conference of the EMS Institute, held at Seven Springs Mountain Resort. The new ambulance, which cost approximately $143,000, was built by Demers Ambulances. Demers has been building ambulances for 50 years and is the oldest ambulance manufacturer in continuous operation in North America. Steve Cummins, head supervisor of the Blacklick Valley Foundation & Ambulance Service, pointed out that the company’s ambulances are used by the U.S. military and are in service from Alaska to Saudi Arabia. The ambulance is built on the chassis of a 2013 four-wheeldrive Chevrolet Silverado. The diesel-powered vehicle features Eco-Smart technology to maximize fuel efficiency and other state-of-the-art technology, some of which is designed to

enhance the safety of EMS technicians tending to patients during transport. For example, a technician can remain seated (with seatbelt fastened) in a “captain’s chair� that slides and moves, enabling the technician to care for a patient while safely and legally strapped into the seat. In the old ambulance, a technician had to slide back and forth along a bench seat and could not wear a seatbelt. “You can’t effectively do your job if you’re flopping around,� said Cummins, who added that much equipment from the service’s old ambulance had been transferred to the new one. In the cab, all the controls are up front, on the dash, and within the line of sight of the driver. In the old model, the controls were lower, between the seats, meaning that the driver had to briefly take his eyes off the road to operate them. In addition, the ambulance will shut down if left idling for too long; however, it will maintain the voltages required for the ambulance’s equipment and will keep the rear “box� within three percent of where EMS technicians set it. “There is so much about the ambulance that is an improvement over the old one,� Cummins said. “It’s a small thing, but it has an oxygen tank lift that picks up the tank and

puts it in the ambulance.� This small feature, nonetheless, eliminates the possibility that a technician might injure himself or herself while lifting a tank. The ambulance also features letters enhanced by reflective material — “Every bit of lettering is reflective,� said Cummins — and a heating system that distributes heat from beneath the box’s floor. Unlike the system of the old ambulance, the new ambulance can raise the temperature in the box in fewer than two minutes. The ambulance was put into service on Friday, April 5, and made its first run that night. “We could have run it all along, but we kept the other one [the service has two ambulances] as the first out because it has all its [Department of Health] seals on it,� Cummins said. The service’s ambulances are inspected every three years by the Southern Alleghenies EMS Council. The new ambulance now sports a provisional license and awaits its final inspection. The service’s investment in the new ambulance represents in a tangible way the organization’s commitment to area residents. “We’re here for the community; that’s what we do,� said Cummins, who noted that the service offers CPR classes to the public and teaches safety classes at Blacklick Valley Elementary Center.

ed almost $115,000 from Gallitzin Townshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taxpayers over seven years, from 2004 to 2011. The case outlines that Cuomo wrote checks to himself for office expenses, but failed to provide the appropriate receipts, leading investigators to believe that the money made its way into Cuomoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own coffers. That money was then used to pay for Cuomoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own health insurance, the revelation of which came to light after the elderly employee suffered a serious medical emergency. The alleged crimes donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop there, either. At the same time that charges were filed against Cuomo, charges of theft by unlawful taking and receiving stolen property, also felonies, were brought down against Cuomoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son, Christopher. Investigators allege that Christopher

Cuomo was the beneficiary of almost $4,000 of Gallitzin Township funds, as well, through similarly unsavory efforts. Township residents are split on the issue. Though none spoke on the record, there remain two distinct camps with opinions on the matter. On the one hand, some residents are pleased to see their beliefs, that longtime illegal practices were being conducted on the part of the previous board of supervisors, have been vindicated. However, at the time the investigation was started by the current supervisors back in April of 2012, a second group of residents expressed their concerns that the sitting board was mistreating the elder Cuomo after all his long years of service to the township. Cuomo and his son will face a preliminary hearing in Nileskiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s courtroom on April 25.

SFU, UPJ partner for annual cancer survivors conference

Mainline Extra

Thursday, April 11, 2013

By Justin Eger

of Mainline Newspapers

While at one time cancer was a much rarer occurrence, the world has changed, and now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s much more difficult to find someone who hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been touched by cancer in some way. The ravages of such diseases impact friends and family, but thanks to medical advancements, the chances of survival are much higher than they used to be, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s slowly becoming more common to meet someone who has not only been touched by the disease, but has surmounted it. Later this month, April 20, Saint Francis Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Center of Excellence for Remote and Medically Under-Served Areas and DiSepio Institute for Rural Health and Wellness, along with the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown, will host a special event dedicated to the survivors of cancer, as well as those who helped them fight their way back to health. This is the third year for the event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The inaugural cancer survivor conference was held on Aug. 13, 2011 at Saint Francis Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s DiSepio Institute for Rural Health and Wellness. The conference was established when CERMUSA noticed cancer survivor conferences were being held in larger cities, such as Pittsburgh, but

none were being made available to survivors living in the more rural areas,â&#x20AC;? said Jay Roberts, Director of CERMUSA / DiSepio Institute for Rural Health and Wellness at Saint Francis University. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With the ever-increasing number of cancer survivors, it was determined a local cancer survivor conference could be a great benefit to area survivors.â&#x20AC;? Roberts explained that the conference was designed to be a resource for cancer survivors, family, caregivers, advocates and friends. Cancer-related organizations are on hand to provide information on current cancer treatments and support services that are available locally, regionally, and nationally. In addition, professional speakers are brought in to share their insights, knowledge and inspirational stories with attendees. Regional cancer support groups are also present to provide information on their programs and services. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The conference continues to grow in attendance,â&#x20AC;? Roberts added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and, thanks to the generous support of area sponsors, is free to all who attend.â&#x20AC;? Those sponsors include Cambria County Area Agency on Aging and the Laurel Auto Group, whose Chief Operating Officer, Matt Smith, explained that his organization became involved though his organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mission to promote education and aware-

ness of gynecological cancers in Cambria and Somerset counties. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we help one woman, we have made a difference, and the opportunity to do just that is what excites me,â&#x20AC;? said Smith, who also serves as co-founder of the Laurel Auto Group Charity Golf Classic and its associated foundation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Supporting this program] continues our spirit to give back to the community, and it is very impressive to see these large organizations join together as one larger more powerful group to carry a stronger message.â&#x20AC;? It is in that spirit that Saint Francis University began to explore the possibility of partnering with the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event. Roberts explained that, when planning first began for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conference, a group of members convened to discuss possible ways to expand upon the reach of the program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because of the educational nature of the conference and the co-hosting of the event between SFU and UPJ, representatives decided to alternate the location of the conference between Loretto and Johnstown,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In doing so, organizers hoped to expand upon the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;community outreachâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; of the program.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;As the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re proud to partner with

Saint Francis University, the Cambria County Area Agency on Aging, and the Conemaugh Health Foundation to provide informational and educational programming on cancer to residents of the Johnstown and surrounding communities,â&#x20AC;? offered Jeanne Susko, Director of Community Education and Outreach at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a Community Education outreach program at an educational institution, getting more information to the public is a part of our mission, and education in this area is important to each of us. Life after cancer is important for the individual, as well as the family!â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has been a pleasure to work with the various organizations involved in planning this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rural Conference for Cancer Survivors. Committee members believe those attending will be pleased with the venue and will benefit from the collaboration and teamwork of those involved in the planning of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conference,â&#x20AC;?

Carrolltown Boro discusses park security requirements By Ian Wissinger

of Mainline Newspapers

A discussion over whether a Carrolltown Parks and Recreation worker should be retained for the next park season led Carrolltown Borough Council to examine what security clearances must be obtained for employees. On Monday, April 1, council heard a report from Bruce Yeckley, who sits on the Parks and Recreation committee. Yeckley first revealed that his department was inching closer to installing public restrooms at American Legion Park, having hired contractor Shevock Builders to complete this task. After its receipt of necessary permits and engineer drawings, Parks and Recreation can move forward with the installation, already having cleared water and sewer connection specifications with the Carrolltown Municipal Authority. Yeckley’s second order of business was to ask for council’s blessing in retaining employee Ed Sholtis, who has handled park maintenance duties for the last two years. “He knows what’s going on down there. His first day on the job, he didn’t have to ask – he just set right to work, and we’re happy to have him,” Yeckley affirmed. Though council found no personal issue with rehiring Sholtis, some members questioned the legal angle of the situation. “Don’t we have to advertise for this position?” someone asked, to which Borough Treasurer Ron Johnson observed, “At one time, council was adamant about [advertising].” Borough Solicitor Suzann Lehmier explained that, since Parks and Recreation is conducting the hiring, the borough itself is not legally required to seek applications, even though it may have offered this as a courtesy in the past. For Sholtis to be recognized as an employee, multiple clearances have to be issued on behalf of the state, Lehmier continued. Previously, park workers, volunteers, coach-

been extremely rewarding. Furthermore, getting to know many of the survivors and their families over the years, hearing their inspiring stories, and about the positive impact the conference has had on their lives has demonstrated both the need and the success of the event.” The third annual Rural Conference for Cancer Survivors will be held on Saturday, April 20, from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. This year’s theme is “Bringing it Back to Me” and will be held at the Holiday Inn on 250

es, umpires and the like had to fill out a single form, a general clearance form, before they could set foot on park property for any of the above reasons. Because of a measure authorized by the Pennsylvania Borough Association at the beginning of 2013, individuals like Sholtis will not only have to fill out a general waiver, but undergo a child abuse clearance and criminal background check, each of the latter items carrying a $10 processing fee. “Who’s going to handle that?” Yeckley asked, somewhat defensively, adding that it would be burdensome for Parks and Recreation to cover said fees for every worker and volunteer that utilizes the park. Councilor Luke Baker, who also coaches baseball, said that he personally would not mind footing his own bill, and assumed that many of his fellow coaches and officials would understand the situation and likely offer the same. “I can’t speak for them,” Baker said, “but it’s probably not that big of a deal.” Some coaches, who work through Cambria Heights and other school districts, may already have the above clearances in place, Baker added. Also, volunteers and umpires under the age of 18 would not be obligated to undergo these checks. “What about volunteers who run the park, like the field staff?” asked a councilor, unsure whether the new state law would apply to everyone who sets foot in the park on an organized and regular basis, since these individuals will technically be working around children. Lehmier said she would investigate and find out who all the law affects. Baker and Carrolltown Mayor Jim Ertter, Jr. noted that the state has recently cracked down as far as clearances and background checks are concerned, “Even with AYSO [the local chapter of the American Youth Soccer Organization],” the former said. “I had to complete an online criminal check just to refile our game of chance license,” Ertter added.

Market Street in Johnstown. The conference is free and open to cancer survivors as well as their family, friends and caregivers. Guest speakers and exhibits by local organizations that provide information, support and treatment to cancer survivors and their families will be on hand. Pre-registration is required and space is limited. While the initial deadline for participation is tomorrow, April 12, additional spaces may still be available.

Ebensburg residents should expect water service disruptions

Mainline Extra

Thursday, April 11, 2013

A water improvement project on Ebensburgâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s water system will result in water service being turned off to downtown customers during the evening hours beginning Monday, April 15. During that Monday afternoon, the contractor will uncover eight sites throughout downtown Ebensburg where new control valves are to be installed. At approximately 6 p.m. on Monday night (April 15), water service to all of downtown Ebensburg will be turned off. Once the water system drains, the contractor will install all eight valves overnight. Water service will be restored early Tuesday morning. The area to be affected on Monday includes the entire downtown area bordered by Highland Avenue, Caroline Street, Lloyd Street and Marian Street. The same procedure will occur the following night on Tuesday, April 16. The new valves installed the previous day will allow us to interrupt service to a smaller area, while more new control valves are installed overnight. This procedure will occur every night during the week in what we anticipate will be smaller and smaller sections of town, until we have all forty-five (45) new control valves installed. Customers will be notified in advance by a

digital phone system anytime water service is to be terminated. Unlike the normal repair of a water leak, this project will require the system to be drained. It is very likely that recharging the water system in the morning will result in air in the system, and dirty water. Customers should be able to quickly flush that away by running cold water. Borough staff will also be flushing from hydrants in the area. The project should not result in any risk of bacteria. Nonetheless, borough staff will be conducting extra tests of the water quality to assure the absence of bacteria. Unless customers hear public service announcements in the media to the contrary, there will be no need to boil water. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know that this is a terrible inconvenience for our customers, but it is absolutely necessary,â&#x20AC;? said Borough Manager Dan Penatzer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is no single best time to interrupt service. Doing the work overnight will cause the least overall inconvenience.â&#x20AC;? Customers are encouraged to contact the borough office at (814) 472-8780 to make sure that their telephone number is included in the digital phone contact list, so that they are assured of being notified in advance of any service interruption.

Labor Day, the daily creel limit is five. After opening day, anglers can fish 24 hours a day. But, before an angler 16 years and older can toss in his line, he must possess a fishing license and a trout-salmon stamp. The license fee for Pennsylvania residents is $22.70 for one year and the trout-salmon stamp is another $9.70. A yearly license for a senior resident, 65 and up, is $11.70. The PFBC for the first time this year is allowing PA fishermen to purchase multi-year licenses. For example, a three-year license will be sold for $64.70 or a five-year for $106.70. The trout stamps will cost $25.70 for three years or $41.70 for five years. Once purchased, licenses, stamps and permits must be signed in ink and displayed on an outer garment. So far this year, license sales have been a bit slow said Chris Fedora, the assistant manager at Ebensburg Fishing & Hunting. Fedora believes the extended winter is largely to blame. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think business will go off the wall once we get a little bit of good weather.â&#x20AC;? Mike McCall, the owner of Ten In One Sports in the northern part of the county, also points to the weather as the deciding factor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It all hinges on Mother Nature,â&#x20AC;? he said. While his traffic flow has been steady, the prediction of warmer temperatures over the next several weeks has McCall looking forward to a good fishing season in 2013.

Trout season opens April 13 of Mainline Newspapers

Whether you fish for the thrill of that tug on the other end of the line, or you just enjoy being outdoors communing with nature, or sharing time with family and friends, this Saturday begins one of a fishermanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favorite times of year, trout season. Statewide, the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission has been preparing for this day since February by stocking the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s waterways with over three million brook, brown and rainbow trout. Locally, within the confines of Cambria County, stocking began Feb. 1 and will continue through the end of this year. Most recently, trout were deposited in Beaverdam Run (April 5), Bens Creek (April 3), Clearfield Creek (April 5), Duman Lake (April 1), Hinckston Run (April 3), Howells Run (April 2), Killbuck Run (April 5), Laurel Run tributary to Conemaugh River (April 1), Laurel Run tributary to South Fork Little Conemaugh River (April 3), Little Killbuck Run (April 5), Noels Creek (April 2), North Branch Little Conemaugh River (April 2), State Lick Run (April 5) and Stewart Run (April 3). Beginning at 8 a.m. on April 13, area lakes and creeks will be populated with fishermen striving to hook a trout that is at least seven inches in length. From opening day through

In the 13th year of its existence, the Nant-Y-Glo Tri Area Museum and Historical Society continues to invite residents in the region and outside the area to join the organization, thus joining the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s effort to preserve the heritage of Blacklick Township, Nanty Glo, Jackson Township, and Vintondale â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and all the hamlets and towns in between â&#x20AC;&#x201D; by gathering artifacts and recording oral histories.

The society offers four types of memberships: individual ($15), family ($20), business ($25), and lifetime ($100). Membership dues are due annually.

Portage American Legion sends care packages to troops overseas Thursday, April 11, 2013

These little remembrances donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just remind you of the beloved family and friends that are now so far away, they can give you a sense of normalcy and transport you back to your everyday life.

- the everyday items that canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be found in the country in which they are stationed. You might be surprised how quickly you begin to miss your favorite candy or toothpaste. In order to help make one group of soldiersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; home away from home feel more like their actual home, members of the Portage American Legion Post 430 went to work collecting an array of items to send to their comrades in arms. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We thought it would be a nice thing for the guys,â&#x20AC;? explained Clair Lloyd, the Portage American Legionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s financial officer. Twelve packages were sent to National Guard troops currently stationed in Afghanistan who are natives of the Portage area late last month. The unit, 1/104th ARB, is serving all over Afghanistan and is set to return later this year.

The Legion accepted donations for items to include in the care packages, as well as purchasing many items themselves. Each package included a number of personal care items and lots of snacks for each guardsman. Some of the items included were crackers, peanuts, mouthwash, toothpaste, mints, Slim Jims, and candy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There were probably seven or eight different kinds of candy,â&#x20AC;? laughed Lloyd. An American flag was also shipped over to the unit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to fly the flag over there at a couple of different places,â&#x20AC;? explained Lloyd. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then, they will mail it back to us, and we will display the flag in the Legion.â&#x20AC;? The Legion plans to send another set of packages to local troops again next spring, when another unit of area soldiers are scheduled to travel overseas.

Cambria Township residents weigh QUALITY AUTO GLASS in on bridge replacement project

Mainline Extra

By Ian Wissinger

of Mainline Newspapers

On March 1, the Cambria Township Board of Supervisors received word that the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation would be replacing a bridge along State Route 2013, or Wilmore Road, as soon as the current school year ends. Because of

   

   

       

    

     

the time and construction involved, PennDOT acknowledged that it would have to designate a detour for commuters. The proposed detour, involving State Route 160 and New Germany Road, adds at least 10 miles of travel for those driving into Ebensburg or Cresson. This news, of course, did not sit well with residents that live along Wilmore Road, who learned of the project in a township-issued letter. On the afternoon of Monday, April 8, about 10 or so residents gathered at the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business meeting to express concerns over how this inconvenience could lead to greater problems, namely those of safety. In reply, Township Chairman Robert Shook said that he and Supervisor Dave Hoover had met with PennDOT representatives, only to find that a reconfiguration of the $100,000 project could so much as quintuple its expected

cost, since the bridge overlies a trout stream and several property easements would undoubtedly have to be obtained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look favorable,â&#x20AC;? Shook said. He explained that PennDOT had coordinated the proposed detour with Ron Springer, who heads Cambria Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department of Emergency Services. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How does that help us for emergencies?â&#x20AC;? a resident asked, to which another added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean any disrespect to Ron, but he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t live out there. If you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t live out there, I guess you wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care, either.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a 15-, 20-minute detour,â&#x20AC;? a third resident observed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What are the ambulance and fire company going to do [in the instance of a call]?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;If it were only a matter of convenience, I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t complain,â&#x20AC;? a woman in the back of the room said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But 20 minutes could mean the difference between life and death.â&#x20AC;? One other concern, less serious but no less legitimate, involved the cost of traveling a 10-mile detour every day to work. One resident mentioned how their son worked at the detention center on the other side of the township, and another said that she baby-sat in Cresson for free, but would now have to leave earlier and expend more gasoline. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to cost us,â&#x20AC;? a man said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What about [our] mileage?â&#x20AC;? While supervisors empathized with the residents (â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t blame you one bit,â&#x20AC;? Hoover said to those who had gathered), Shook said the best thing the township could do is arrange a meeting between PennDOT representatives and those directly affected by the project. When residents criticized Springer for his role in shaping the detour, Shook added that he could get in touch with the Emergency Services Coordinator and have him make an appearance as well. The meeting, to be held at the Cambria Township Municipal Building, will take place on Tuesday, April 30, at 6 p.m. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to know where PennDOT gets its numbers,â&#x20AC;? one woman said, still visibly incensed. The state entity had decided on the project, based on the statistic that approximately 412 motorists per day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 45 houses from Route 22 to my house alone,â&#x20AC;? the woman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the second time theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve wanted to cut us off for emergency services,â&#x20AC;? another resident said. As a means of calming residents down and drawing the conversation to a close, Hoover said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do anything other than [hold this meeting]. We just got the letter from PennDOT, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re passing on information.â&#x20AC;?

Township will continue to maintain Farmerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Turnpike routes By Justin Eger

of Mainline Newspapers

Revisiting the subject for what the board hoped would be the last time, the Washington Township Supervisors described their efforts to investigate concerns related to the care and maintenance of Farmerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Turnpike on the evening of April 3. The route in question is a state road that the township has been contracted to handle over the last winter, and for several winters to come, working with the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation under an agreement that will see the state pay the township to plow and salt during the winter months. Two months ago, resident Paul Williams circulated a petition asking that the supervisors hand the road back over to PennDOT due to what he felt was a lack of proper attention on the part of the supervisors. That petition was handed over to the board in March, and elected officials

have spent the last few weeks conducting their own investigation, the results of which were far different than what Williams had initially presented last month. Summarizing the efforts of the three board members, supervisor Jaime Hartline explained that the board visited 19 of the 23 homes initially listed on Williamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; petition, and spoke with 43 of the 51 township residents who signed off on the document. Eight people at four homes were unable to be reached. Hartline added that the supervisors broke the list down by the various homes â&#x20AC;&#x153;strictly to get organized,â&#x20AC;? and to avoid visiting the same home multiple times, should residents be listed non-sequentially on the petition. Of those 43 people that the supervisors were able to reach before Easter weekend (â&#x20AC;&#x153;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be bothering people on the holiday,â&#x20AC;? Hartline said), 36 of those people removed their names from the petition for various reasons, eliminating 16 of the 19 homes on the list. The supervisors then added in the half-dozen people that Williams initially said refused to sign the petition, bringing the total people who now opposed the petition up to 42. Even factoring in the eight people that the township was unable to reach, the supervisors still felt that this was a vast majority of the affected parties who approved of the work that the township was trying to do. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once they were better informed about what we do and what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to accomplish, they chose not to participate in the petition,â&#x20AC;? Hartline explained. Furthermore, the supervisors spoke with representatives of PennDOT, who reviewed the road both before and after Williams tendered his initial complaint. The state agency reportedly had no issues, and felt that the township is meeting

all the requirements of both winter maintenance and the contract with the state. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to keep the road, and the contract,â&#x20AC;? Hartline told the audience at the meeting, which included Williams and his daughter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to say itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be exactly the same, but the work is probably going to look very similar over the next five years.â&#x20AC;? Hartline continued, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to have to do this every year for the next five years. This is our answer, and we have invested a lot of time to provide this answer ... weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve probably got 16 hours into this research.â&#x20AC;? For their part, Williams and his daughter said that they appreciated the time investigating the matter, and reported what they believed had been better care and maintenance over the course of the last few months. For that, Williams thanked the board, while his daughter asked if the supervisors would welcome further questions or concerns from them or any other residents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have an open door policy,â&#x20AC;? said supervisor Ray Guzic, Jr., who serves as the townshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roadmaster. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can call any time, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a big enough man to take a little criticism, so

if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doing a good enough job, just let me

know and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see what we can do to make it better.â&#x20AC;?

Portage progresses against Rex Theater property By Sarah Wolford

of Mainline Newspapers

Portage Borough has reached a new foothold in their fight against the blighted property on Gillespie Avenue. The former Rex Theater building has seen years of neglect, finally becoming so unsafe that the borough was forced to block off the sidewalk and alley bordering the property for fear of danger to the public. Borough solicitor Michael Emerick told the borough council that property owner Nick Sekerak has until April 23 to come up with a contract for the buildingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s demolition, as determined in a recent hearing before Judge Norman Krumenacker. If Sekerak doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t comply with the judgment, he could be held in contempt of court and face jail time. Emerick thanked Portage mayor Bob Fox, borough manager Bob Koban, and several members of council for attending the hearing to help demonstrate the boroughâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s case. The council has been working for quite some time to have something done with the property, which their engineers deemed an unsafe structure. Due to shifting walls and the collapsing roof and second floor, the borough became concerned that heavy snow or rain would cause the building to fall into the street. The judgment also requires Sekerak to pay all of the boroughâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s costs. Council hopes that the property will then be demolished and issues regarding it closed. The council was also updated on the status of the Bookhammer property on Main Street, which is currently being taken over by Jerry Mosghat. Emerick said that the lawyers are still going back and forth, as the borough waits for the transfer of the property to be finalized. Although the deed has been signed, the transfer has not been recorded yet, Emerick said. He said he will follow up and report back to council. In other business, public works director Don Squillario told council that the street sweeping schedule would be moved back one week due to inclement weather. Sweeping on Main Street began this week. Squillario also said that the Army Corps of Engineers would be in town the week of the meeting to look at the wall along Trout Run on Caldwell Avenue. Squillario said he would have more regarding that matter for council at their next meeting. Council also took a few moments to discuss upcoming borough projects, including the sidewalk project on Mountain Avenue. Koban said that they are currently finalizing the schedule with Stiffler McGraw, Inc. Once the schedule is finalized, plans will move forward. Also moving forward are plans for the Main Street/Dulancey Avenue intersection project. Koban said that so far it looks like the project is slated with 2014 with PennDOT. He told council he would pass along more information on the project as it is received.
