Ebensburg police make progress in robberies

By Ian Wissinger

of Mainline Newspapers

Ebensburg Borough is pursuing leads in regards to two high-profile robberies that occurred within the past two months, and Police Chief Terry Wyland believes that his department has come close to solving at least one of the cases. Of the process, the chief acknowledged that “it’s very time-consuming� and requires “a lot of manpower,� though he predicted a “hopefully substantial outcome� before remarking to borough council: “It’s not like [the television show] CSI; we can’t solve crimes in an hour.� Though the latter comment elicited a few chuckles on behalf of his audience, Wyland and his officers remain serious about the tasks at hand. On Monday, March 11, First National Bank of Ebensburg, located on the 100 block of West High Street near the borough’s main intersection, was robbed, with a single suspect making off with an undisclosed amount of cash. Ebensburg Borough Police, accompanied by the Pennsylvania State Police and at least six other departments, swarmed the scene, albeit a few moments too late. While it was initially believed that the suspect fled on foot through an alley to the north of the bank, police later determined via video surveillance that a vehicle was involved in the operation. A dark-colored Chevy pickup truck with a tire in its bed was identified on tape. Not a month later, on

Wednesday, April 10, at least one suspect broke into local businesses Al’s Tires and West End Market, both located along the 800 block of West High Street. The incident, occurring between the hours of midnight and 8 a.m., led to the unlawful taking of $640 in cash from one building, $602 from another, and a few minor incidents of vandalism. A pry bar, taken from Al’s Tires, was used in an attempt to gain entrance to the market, and left behind at the scene. From the evidence gathered, Wyland believes that this case can soon be closed as at least one arrest is made.

Laurel Mountain Structures of Ebensburg claimed by fire By Ian Wissinger and Jim Lauffer

of Mainline Newspapers

A structure fire in Cambria Township has claimed a locally owned and operated business; thankfully, emergency responders confirmed that no persons were injured in the blaze. Laurel Mountain Structures, located off Route 22 near where it intersects with Route 219, went up in flames on the evening of Wednesday, April 24. Dauntless Fire Company, Revloc and Colver Volunteer Fire Companies and at least three other units responded to the call, at about 6:30 p.m. As soon as firefighters arrived on-scene, Dauntless Chief Jeff Evans said, they realized the only thing they could do was control the blaze and keep it from spreading to adjacent buildings, especially a nearby office on the Laurel Mountain property, which was ultimately spared. “We had plenty of water, plenty of help, but the fire was too

advanced by the time we got there,� Evans said. Because of the proximity of several other businesses along this stretch of Route 22, responders were able to tap into a water main with especially strong water pressure, but flames had reached and enveloped the tin roof of the Laurel Mountain building by this point. One bystander said only five-to-10 minutes had elapsed before the entire frame was engulfed. It took firefighters at least three hours to extinguish the blaze. After the majority of the flames had dissipated, the building’s owner used an excavator to remove the now-collapsed tin roof so that responders could focus on the embers and smaller fires within. Evans said Dauntless did not leave the scene until about 10:30 p.m. As far as determining the fire’s cause, the Dauntless chief said he could not speculate, though he ruled out anything suspicious. “The cause is undetermined, because the building was so totally destroyed,� Evans

observed. Sometimes, in the instance of such a fire, a state marshal is called in to investigate, but Evans said that the property’s owner will likely be calling his insurance company to arrange an inspection. Laurel Mountain Structures — which manufactures log and timber frame houses, as well as a patented wall system — was founded 20 years ago by Wes Kestermont of Penn Run. He said that the building — one of two buildings on the company’s property — that burned was used primarily for storage, though some manufacturing, staining, and painting work was also done there. Kestermont pointed out that the stains and paints used by his company are water-based and that no flammable items were used or stored in the building. The fire came at a particularly inopportune time because Kestermont had been planning a sale of excess inventory — inventory that was stored in the building and consumed by the fire. Kestermont estimates that he lost between $60,000 and

$70,000 of inventory in the blaze. “We are covered to rebuild,� he said, “but the insurance doesn’t cover the contents of the building.� “The fire incinerated a lot of stuff — just left it in ashes,� he continued. “It’s amazing what a fire can do. You can work to building something for 20 years, and in the matter of an hour, it’s gone.� Among the items in the building were aluminum I-beams used for scaffolding. Kestermont said that the fire mostly melted them, leaving perhaps a foot or

so of the beams’ ends. Aluminum melts at approximately 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit, so it goes without saying — or nearly without saying — that the fire burned hot, very hot. On Tuesday, Kestermont was told that the fire was caused by an electrical surge, perhaps caused by lightning. “Three wires in the electrical box ‘blew up,’� he said, “and arced with the box.� The fire moved up the wall to the building’s roof, at SEE FIRE, PAGE 5

of Mainline Newspapers

On Tuesday, April 23, two Central Cambria High School students stumbled upon a message, scrawled on a boys’ bathroom wall. The words, “school shooting,” accompanied by a date of May 3, did not offer any information as to who, where or why, but were enough to prompt administrators,

By the end of Tuesday, the administrator had arranged for a schoolwide assembly, and on Wednesday letters were sent home with students, detailing what was already known about the incident. “There’s been a problem with misinformation,” McDermott acknowledged as of last Friday. “A lot of [inaccuracies] have been floating around on social media.” To beef up security measures, the

Generally, the motion to approve the list of bills from Jackson Townshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital reserve fund is routine and uneventful; however, the list presented for approval at the supervisorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; end-of-April meeting contained an non-routine, eyecatching entry â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a $22,359.60 bill for a 2013 Ford Interceptor police vehicle. Supervisors voted unanimously to approve that bill, as well as bills for new cameras for police vehicles and a security system for the district judgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office in the old Vinco School building, which the township owns. The total amount of April bills paid from the capital reserve fund was $29,981.60. The police departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new cruiser â&#x20AC;&#x201D; purchased from the New Holland Auto Group â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is powered by a six-cylinder engine and features all-wheel drive. The vehicle replaces a sports utility vehicle, and the hope is that the new Ford will provide savings at the fuel pump. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need four-wheel-drive in the winter,â&#x20AC;? said supervisor Bruce Baker, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but the SUV was killing us [with poor gas mileage].â&#x20AC;? In other police-related business, the departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s monthly report was attached to the meetingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s agenda. During March, township officers made nine arrests, including four driving-under-the-influence arrests, and issued 47 traffic citations, as well as five non-traffic citations. They also gave 35 traffic warnings. During the month, the department received 291 calls for service and handled 13 cases. Those calls included 10 complaints about animals and 11 complaints about trucks traveling Swigle Mountain Road. During the public-comment portion of the meeting, resident Eugene Kist asked supervisors two police-related questions. He asked whether officers could patrol areas where recently deceased residents had lived, adding that potential burglars can read obituaries to target residences. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The dead are being robbed,â&#x20AC;? he said. Kist also asked whether the townshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s police department was being compensated for patrolling Route 22. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen them out there,â&#x20AC;? he said. Supervisors didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t address his former question, but supervisor Mark Westrick told Kist that the department had received a state grant that, for the duration of the grant period, reimbursed 100 percent of the costs incurred in patrolling Route 22.

which point it became clear that the building would not be saved. Kestermont was also told that the traffic lights at the intersection of Route 22 and Mini Mall Road â&#x20AC;&#x201D; just up the road from Laurel Mountainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s structures â&#x20AC;&#x201D; were also knocked out at approximately the same time as the fire began, indicating that perhaps lightning caused a power surge in the general area. Kestermont is a man of faith, and his faith has seen him and his family through the shock of the fire. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m better today than I was last Thursday,â&#x20AC;? he said on Tuesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was initially shocked. Nothing prepares you for that kind of news.â&#x20AC;? He added that he has received cards and notes of support from local churches and menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s groups. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also received many offers of help. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a lot of people say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;If thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s anything we can do to

help, let us know,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? he said, adding that he has also received offers from business competitors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all in this together,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? he said. He pointed out that many of the cards and notes he has received offer encouragement â&#x20AC;&#x201D; â&#x20AC;&#x153;out of these ashes, beauty will ariseâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; based on Isaiah 61:3, which reads, â&#x20AC;&#x153;To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe that God has our best interests at heart,â&#x20AC;? said Kestermont. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He has an awesome plan for every one of us.â&#x20AC;? Now that the insurance investigators have determined the cause of the fire, Kestermont hopes â&#x20AC;&#x153;to get on track with the cleanupâ&#x20AC;? and to begin the work of rebuilding.

Gallitzin Sportsmenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s preps Wine Fest

Mainline Extra

of Mainline Newspapers

â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was something new for this area and people really enjoyed it,â&#x20AC;? representatives of the Gallitzin Sportsmenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s said as they described last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inaugural Wine Fest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our favorite part was watching people experience something new to our area, and enjoying the many different varieties the wineries had to offer. I think some people were unsure of how a Wine Fest was run, and got a pleasant surprise and really enjoyed the day.â&#x20AC;? While some people might have been uncertain about the success of a wine-tasting event in Gallitzin, the success that the Gallitzin Sportsmenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s met with during last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s celebration was enough that it was almost certain another event would be held this year. Looking to both duplicate that success and expand upon it, the organization is currently selling tickets for their second annual Wine Fest, to be held on Saturday, May 4. However, this year, the event will feature not one tasting session, but two. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had one session that went over extremely well, so this year we have decided to have two sessions to accommodate more people,â&#x20AC;?

have performed at least one walkthrough of the high school, interviewing students whom they think may have been in the vicinity at the time of the incident. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[The police] have been fantastic,â&#x20AC;? McDermott attested. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here every morning at arrival time. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done drive-bys, called in to check up; theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been very cooperative.â&#x20AC;? School administrators have also implemented security measures of their own. The principal said that hall travel privileges, in the wake of the incident, have been strictly limited. In the meantime, officials are reviewing video surveillance footage to narrow down a range of possible suspects. McDermott and Superintendent Dr. Vincent DiLeo, in a separate statement, said that whoever is guilty should expect to be persecuted to the fullest extent of the law. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re frustrated and disheartened,â&#x20AC;? McDermott said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We work diligently to protect our students, and for one student to hamper our efforts, that disrupts the whole education system. This is supposed to be a time of the school year where [students] look forward to more fun activities.â&#x20AC;? She added that whoever is responsible has in effect made it more difficult for the student body to enjoy the rest of the school year, as the aforementioned security precautions must remain in place. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is something we take very

club members explained of the expansion, which will see a first session held from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., and a second session running from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Music during the first session will be provided by the returning Tree, while the evening session will feature music from the Whiskey River Panhandlers. Otherwise, the program of various wineries and vendors remains largely unchanged. Returning vendors from last year include Clover Creek Cheese Cellar, Nuttin But Nuts, Robbieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Country Cupboard, while new vendors Bonfattoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wing Sauce, Stella & Dot Jewelry, Dirt Broke Gourmet, Longaberger Baskets, Lost Marbles Wire Art, Scrumptious Gourmet Rum Cakes, and Kayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Purses join the roster. As for the titular beverage of the day, this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event will feature returning wineries Starr Hill, Walnut Hill, Wapiti Ridge, Allegheny Cellars, along with new participants Raspberry Acres of Blairsville and B & L Wine Cellar of Johnstown. Organizers added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it is nice to have a variety of different wineries from the area in one place, so people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to travel too far to sample and enjoy different types of wine.â&#x20AC;? Admission for the event is $15 for

seriously,â&#x20AC;? the principal said. In speculating as to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;whyâ&#x20AC;? of the message, McDermott pointed out that Saturday, May 4 marks the date of Central Cambria High Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prom. The timing of the event could point to two possible motives, she said, but did not qualify either as substantial. The perpetrator could either be attempting to get school canceled for Friday, so that students would get an extra day added to the weekend, and still be able to attend the prom (students are barred from the event if marked absent the day before). Or, the suspect could have picked the day because he or she knew that attendance rates for the day would be high. Naturally, police presence will remain strong on campus during the rest of this week, especially tomorrow, McDermott said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of our students are OK; there are some who, you know, appeared visibly concerned,â&#x20AC;? she added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a great guidance staff who is willing to sit and talk with anybody who may be feeling anxious.â&#x20AC;? She added that students were not forced to come to school through the week, nor were they asked to stay home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We encouraged them to do whatever they were most comfortable with,â&#x20AC;? she said. If you have any information on this apparent school shooting threat made at Central Cambria High School last week, contact the Cambria Township Police Department at (814) 472-6040.

SuperConference for student leaders celebrates 20th year

Mainline Extra

Thursday, May 2, 2013

Cambria, Blair County schools participate in development of program By Justin Eger and Ian Wissinger

of Mainline Newspapers

“The task of leadership is not to put greatness into people, but to elicit it, for the greatness is there already.” - John Buchan

Great leaders are uncovered every day, and as we trust our educators to shape young minds and prepare our children for whatever paths await them, so too should we trust them to identify those with the qualities we want to see in our future. Many of those qualities will be on display next week, as the 20th annual SuperConference on May 8, hosted at Mount Aloysius College, unites young leaders from across Cambria and Blair Counties and fosters in them the idea that they, too, have an impact on the world around them. “We’re hoping that, by the fact that they have been identified as leaders, and through this interaction with their peers, that the students will be inspired to assume leadership roles,” explained William Marshall, Penn Cambria High School Principal and president of the Cambria County Secondary School Principals Association. SuperConference, a program organized by the CCSSPA and the Appalachia Intermediate Unit 8, is designed to showcase the leadership qualities of students in grades 7 though 11. Each of the students, Marshall explained, has been identified by someone in their school, be it a teacher, a guidance counselor, or an administrator, as someone who has the potential to be a leader among their peers. As such, SuperConference offers a place for these young leaders to gather and commiserate over the course of a day spent at the Mount. “This is a great event where student leaders can continue to grow as they move forward into their college years and beyond to a professional career. SuperConference students are leaders, chosen by their schools to represent them at this event,” offered Richard Mishler, director of transfer and returning adult admissions. “Mount Aloysius College is honored to host SuperConference 2013, and we extend our warmest hospitality to these ‘best of the best’ students, along with their proud principals and teachers. Our red carpet is out and we welcome them.” During their visit to the Cresson college, the 184 participating students from Cambria County’s many schools, as well as students from Altoona, Hollidaysburg, Spring Cove, Williamsburg, and Bishop Guilfoyle, will begin the day by hearing from a leader in Cambria County’s justice system, Judge Linda Fleming. Fleming was invited to be a keynote speaker at this year’s SuperConference, and the judge explained she would be discussing “50 Ways to Be a Leader.” “I’m hoping to dispel the traditional thoughts about how we approach leadership and make it clear that what we do and how we act are also ways that we show leadership,” Fleming said. “All of our actions lead other people, but it’s up to us to decide if we want to lead in a good direction or a bad direction. Every minute of every day, we are examples of leadership, and I want to reinforce that point.

Fleming continued, “I also want to point out that leadership is not just what is on your resume, but who we are, and show that if we offer civil behavior, if we treat other people with respect, that is a way to show leadership.” Following Fleming’s keynote address, the students will participate in a series of breakout sessions, each age-appropriate, that will help the students focus and refine their leadership skills. Whether it is proactively helping their peers resist the influence of drugs and alcohol or promoting diversity in their school communities, the 11 sessions offer advice, discussion, and more to the participating students. The students will then have the opportunity to interact with each other, cross-pollinating their ideas and observations from among the 22 participating schools. “It’s an opportunity to develop and enhance the leadership qualities that people they interact with every day have recognized in them, and to interact with their peers in a unique way,” Marshall said, noting that the teachers and principals who participate also practice what they preach to their young charges. “As their educators, we take those same opportunities to share, brainstorm, and

collaborate on initiatives. We get perspectives from all the different schools in the county, as well as from our neighbors in Blair County, and getting a well-rounded perspective helps us to make informed, educated decisions.” From the Ebensburg area, Bishop Carroll Catholic will be taking six of its own to the SuperConference, accompanied by Student Council advisor Joe Skura. Skura described these students as talented leaders who continue to represent Huskie Hill in a positive light. Freshman Ellie Yahner, who is among the guests, designed this year’s SuperConference logo. She will be joined next Wednesday by Evan Rieg, Brandon Martinazzi, Katie Bender, Sarah Gomish and Addison Ratchford. Of the SuperConference experience, Skura said, “It’s a great day for kids because it’s focused on leadership. So many of [our students] have these skills and are looking for ways to sharpen them and be even stronger servant leaders. The organizers do a great job of providing motivation to these students, inspiring them to lead.” “I don’t think there is anything else like it,” Marshall added. “I can’t think of any other event that

brings together all of the different aspects of Cambria County, to say nothing of the participation from Blair County, as well. This is a chance for us to come together, to reinforce a positive message, and to foster leadership in our schools. That it’s been going on for 20 years is a testament, I think, to the work that we’re doing here.” As SuperConference 2013 nears, Marshall noted that the CCSSPA is already reviewing the scholarship applications from six

students interested in pursuing a career in education, one of which will be awarded $500 during the conference. In turn, congratulations were offered to Bishop Carroll’s Ellie Yahner, who designed this year’s logo and earned herself a $50 gift card for her efforts. Finally, Marshall wanted to offer special thanks to Kristy Gabrielso and Janel Vancas of the Intermediate Unit, as without their help and organization, SuperConference would never be a reality each year.

Cresson Township Municipal Authority receives state loan

By Justin Eger

of Mainline Newspapers

Though having originally expected an offer earlier this year, the Cresson Township Municipal Authority received word that a hefty loan would be made available by state lending agency PENNVEST late last week, funding that will guarantee the authority the ability to pursue a longplanned water system improvement project. State Representative Gary Haluska and State Senator John Wozniak separately issued releases last Thursday noting the award to Cresson Township. The press releases noted that the Cresson Township Municipal Authority will receive $1.335 million in state loans for water system improvements. The improvements include construction of a new 295,000 gallon water storage tank and pump station at the Cresson Ridge property owned and maintained by Cresson Township. The project will also include 2,819 lin-

Mainline Extra

ear feet of water line that will connect the tank to the upper extremities of the townshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s existing water system, with the line to be run along Admiral Peary Highway from the Cresson Ridge, and will then be laid under the four lanes and median of State Route 22, before rising up the opposite hillside and connecting to township water lines at the back edge of Scott Road. The project will also provide for new household meters with better telemetry to help the authority monitor water usage remotely. These meters will be used throughout the system, rather than being focused in the area of the waterline project. This project, state officials noted, is intended to address the control and oversight issues the authority is having due to the current location on the storage tank. The project will also increase fire protection, reduce water loss and leakage and eliminate existing water system pressure problems.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The existing tank location has resulted in cross-connection issues, along with other control and metering problems,â&#x20AC;? Haluska said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The new tank and other improvements will significantly reduce water leakage and loss, and eliminate water pressure problems within the system.â&#x20AC;? It is worth noting that the offer provided by PENNVEST was based solely on a loan, with no grant component to speak of. As such, township representatives were, as Supervisor Scott Decoskey said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;disappointed.â&#x20AC;? This was especially disconcerting for township representatives, who had seen their funding offer delayed due to the announcement that the State Correctional Institution at Cresson would be closed by mid-year. That closing led to PENNVEST asking for a new submission from the CTMA, and many believed that the loss of the prisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s revenue would make the state look more favorably on the townshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s residents.

Thursday, May 2, 2013

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought we would get some kind of grant,â&#x20AC;? said Decoskey, who also serves as a member of the municipal authority. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought it might be similar to the Munster project, which got a 60 percent grant component under the same authority, especially considering the hardships that are being created by the prisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s closing.â&#x20AC;? Those hardships include a loss of about 48 percent of the authorityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s revenue, which the board has already tried to assuage by raising

rates for customers. A second rate increase was planned soon after the announcement, but a third to cover the cost of the $1.335 million loan will now have to be addressed, as well. Rates should be expected to go up about $9 per customer to cover the cost of the project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot at one time,â&#x20AC;? Decoskey admitted. But [this project] is not just something that we want to do, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something that we have to do.â&#x20AC;?

the police chief provided a few brief updates on what else the department has been involved in. He acknowledged that Ebensburg Borough Police now employs eight full-time officers, and two officers, in addition to the chief, were involved in an active shooter drill, conducted at Central Cambria High School on the afternoon of Friday, March 8. The exercise, held in cooperation with the school district, Pennsylvania State Police, Cambria County CERT Team and Department of Emergency Services, as well as a number of other local law enforcement and first responder agencies, was deemed a great learning experience by Wyland.

As Ebensburg Borough Council debated the necessity of an ordinance that outlined future sidewalk plans for the municipality, its street committee also addressed paving issues, noting that several roadways and one lot would soon need resurfaced. Upon examining the related list, Borough Manager Dan Penatzer observed that a separate project, considered by the Ebensburg Municipal Authority, may coincide with some of the proposed items, and recommended that Ebensburg only advertise

for two sections of road, plus the municipal lot. The original list, provided by the street committee, names sections of North Julian, North Caroline, Tibbott, Roland, Arbor and Margaret Streets as potential â&#x20AC;&#x153;problemâ&#x20AC;? areas for motorists, fit for a fresh coat of blacktop. Penatzer said the municipal authorityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible implementation of a new wastewater collection system would make some items impractical, considering that Caroline Street, at the very least, would have to be excavated. The authority â&#x20AC;&#x153;should have a better idea about those plans in the next

month or two,â&#x20AC;? the borough manager added. Furthering the discussion, Penatzer pointed out that Caroline Street is one of the roadways named in Ordinance 605, the sidewalk mandate which had just received tentative approval from council. If Caroline Street receives a new sidewalk within the next two or so years, it would make no sense to blacktop it now, he said. Since Ebensburg will likely bid all of the above streets out at the same time, Penatzer recommended putting off the entire paving project for at least another year.

Thursday, May 2, 2013

However, given that Ebensburg has set to work on adding a sidewalk to the 100 block of East Ogle Street â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and the curbing, due to the brick road it borders, will stand a few inches higher than normal â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Penatzer insisted that the borough pave this stretch of road instead. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This project cannot wait, due to the height of the new curbs,â&#x20AC;? he told council. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is to our benefit to have a larger area than that for paving,â&#x20AC;? the borough manager continued, noting that a single block of asphalt should not constitute the SEE ROAD, PAGE 16

Cambria Township addresses needs of residents

Mainline Extra

By Ian Wissinger

of Mainline Newspapers

The first portion of Cambria Townshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Thursday, April 25 meeting centered around public comment, with three individuals stepping forward to address a variety of issues, from animal control to property disputes to other legalities that required supervisor action. The first speaker of the afternoon was Larry Crespo, a certified biologist and the proprietor of Crespo Wildlife Solutions, Inc. Readers may recognize Crespoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name because of his affiliation

with Ebensburg Borough in its efforts to reduce Lake Rowenaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Canadian Goose population. He is also employed by nine area townships, dealing with pest and domestic animal control. Presently, Crespo approached Cambria Township officials, asking if his services would be applicable there. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I basically handle animal damage control, everything from wild animals to domestic ones,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The only thing Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not allowed to touch are bears, bobcats and deer.â&#x20AC;? Crespo said that he had most recently captured a dog that was

wandering loose in Richland Township. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With free-roaming dogs, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll chase them down, and when I apprehend them, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll either take them home or to the humane society,â&#x20AC;? the biologist explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My card guarantees a 24-hour response time, but it never takes that long.â&#x20AC;? Crespo is also employed in Somerset and Irwin. The wildlife solution business may be viable in Cambria Township, especially the Colver area, where stray and loose dogs have caused problems in the past. On at least two recent occasions, a Colver resident asked the board

13

of supervisors to tighten down on dog owners; in the latter instance, the woman had suffered injuries as the result of a dog attack. In compiling charges filed from District Magistrate Frederick Creanyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office for the month of March, at least one Colver resident had been hit with multiple charges over failing to restrain his pets. Upon briefly reviewing contract options, Chairman Robert Shook thanked Crespo for introducing himself, and said that the board would discuss the matter before SEE TOWNSHIP, PAGE 16

Finally, the snow and colder temperatures are leaving the area. However, in their wake, Hastings Borough has discovered a problem â&#x20AC;&#x201D; dog poop. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are not picking up after their dogs,â&#x20AC;? said Hastings Borough Office Manager Barb Holtz. Complaints have been filtering into the borough office at a regular clip. The walking trail is littered with dog feces, as is the area behind the hockey court. And those aren't the only areas affected in town. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Basically anywhere people walk their dogs there is a problem,â&#x20AC;? said Holtz. The borough has decided to clamp down on offenders and they have an ordinance for such matters: the curbing of dogs, which has been in place since May 7, 1996. Specifically dealing with the removal of feces, the ordinance states: Any person who â&#x20AC;&#x153;curbsâ&#x20AC;? a dog shall immediately remove all feces deposited by such dog by any sanitary method and same shall be deposited in the owner's garbage or disposed of in some other sanitary method. The deposit shall be properly wrapped, packaged or protected so as to prevent unsightly disposal, smell or interference with the health and welfare of the community. The penalty for not adhering to this ordinance is a miminum fine of $25 to a maximum fine of $300 together with the costs of prosecution. Staying with the thought of warmer weather and that spring rolls into summer, the borough crew has been patching cracks in the pool and performing cleanup of the area in anticipation of the upcoming swimming season. Borough council thought they had their 2013 pool manager hired when they convened following their April 17 meeting. However, the applicant turned SEE HASTINGS, PAGE 20

arriving at a decision. Before excusing himself from the meeting, Crespo noted that he handles calls from residents on a private, case-by-case basis as well. Eric Danchanko, a resident of Winterset Road, was set to be the second guest of the afternoon, but could not attend the meeting in full. On his behalf, Shook explained that Danchanko had issued a complaint in regards to his neighbor, who operates a landscaping business and stores â&#x20AC;&#x153;various construction equipmentâ&#x20AC;? on his lot. Said neighbor has also taken it upon himself to install a fence, which encroaches on Danchankoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s property by several feet. Township solicitor Dennis Govachini and zoning officer Terry Shulsky had also been notified of the problem. Govachini first asked what the neighbor was doing by operating a landscaping business in a residential area. The board found out that Shulsky had actually issued a warning to the neighbor, who has yet to respond. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We ought to have the police investigate this, too, maybe issue a cease-anddesist [order],â&#x20AC;? Govachini observed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The police were already out there earlier in the week,â&#x20AC;? Supervisor Tim Bracken said. With this information in mind, Govachini brainstormed a solution, recommended that it would be best for township police to return to the property to compile an official report â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;just to ascertain the factsâ&#x20AC;?; this document could then be forwarded onto Shulsky, who could then take the appropriate action. Finally, the board heard correspondence from Sam Koban, representative of Breaker Boys, a restaurant and cafe in Colver. Koban was also unable to physically attend the meeting, but his letter explained present circumstances to the supervisors and

Road

Mainline Extra stated his goal â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to obtain a cafe license from the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board, so that he can serve alcoholic beverages outdoors on the propertyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s front patio. In order to do so, Koban must receive support from his host municipality in writing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have occasional sidewalk dining during the summer,â&#x20AC;? Shook explained, scanning through the letter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He said it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t prohibit public use of sidewalks â&#x20AC;&#x201C; these are smaller, twoperson tables. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re only open certain days of the week.â&#x20AC;? Kobanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s letter emphasized the upcoming Colver reunion, a huge draw for the community and its natives; with outdoor dining available, Breaker Boys hopes to attract more business during this peak time, he wrote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no problem,â&#x20AC;? Shook said, as the supervisors voted unanimously to authorize Koban to extend his cafe license.

whole of a project. To add to the list, Penatzer suggested paving North and South Sugar Street. Given these three items, total project costs will amount to $55,400, a sum that will be partially covered by Cambria County liquid fuels money (given the roadwayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proximity to the courthouse). The countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s share makes up $33,500, while Ebensburg would cover the remainder of the bill ($21,900) from its own liquid fuels fund. No general fund dollars would be required. To wrap up the discussion, Penatzer said that borough staff â&#x20AC;&#x153;has inspected all Ebensburg streets and prepared a long list of areas that need to be cut and patched by [its] own crews.â&#x20AC;? This in-house project â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a standard maintenance endeavor â&#x20AC;&#x201C; will proceed at the direction of council. In the end, council voted unani-

Jackson Township receives audit

Mainline Extra

By Jim Lauffer

of Mainline Newspapers

Terence Shook, a partner in the accounting firm of Barnes, Saly and Company, Johnstown, briefly summed up his firm’s audit of Jackson Township’s 2012 financial records: “It was a very good, very clean audit.” Shook shared the findings — “I’m just going to give highlights,” he said — with those present at the Thursday, April 25, meeting of the Jackson Township Board of Supervisors. After noting that he had no negative comments about the audit findings, Shook said that the audit — which was completed on March 19 — showed nothing unusual in the township’s bookkeeping, that the audit revealed no disagreements among the township’s financial records, and that the audit uncovered nothing that needed to be corrected. Following his comments — which were truly brief — Shook thanked township officials for their

cooperation before and during the audit and asked whether anyone had questions about the audit. When none were asked, Shook departed.

2013 County Aid for the township’s road projects. Supervisors reluctantly passed a motion to accept Al Pagano’s resignation from the Jackson Township Recreation Commission. “This is with regret,” said chairman Bruce Baker. “Al served a long time and did a lot for the rec commission.” During the meeting’s public-comment period, resident Tom Beyer asked whether a mandatory tap-in was included in the proposed sewer system extension project along Ford’s Corner Road and whether residents who lived outside the distance for mandatory tap-in could opt, nonetheless, to tap into the new line. Solicitor Bill Barbin replied that any resident who lived within 150 feet of the line would be required to tap into that line and that anyone who lived beyond that distance could choose to connect to the system. “Authorities are always looking for customers,” Barbin said. Byer also asked about the monthly fee for new customers along Ford’s Corner Road, questioning whether their fee — which will be paid to the Blacklick Valley Municipal Authority — would be greater than that paid by township residents who are customers of the Jackson-East Taylor Sewer Authority. Barbin pointed out that JETSA customers pay monthly fees to both JETSA and Johnstown Regional Sewage and that the sum of those two fees is comparable to the single fee that Ford’s Corner Road customers will pay when the new line is laid.

down the position, sending borough council back to reevaluate the remaining applicants. Council hopes to appoint a new pool manager at its upcoming May 7 meeting. Remaining with the theme of hot days and a refreshing dip in the borough's pool, council is offering a $10 discount on season tickets for the pool. The deal is good until May 24. The tentative opening date for the pool is Saturday, May 25, the Memorial Day weekend. The price of a family ticket is normally $90 but until May 24, it is $80. An individual swimming pass is usually $35, but with the discount, drops to $25. The borough is also preparing for another summer activity that is currently revving up — baseball and softball season. Last year, the borough took steps to replace the bleachers at its three ballfields. “We got some in (last year) but there wasn't enough time to get them all in,” said Holtz. The onset of fall halted the process. The borough crew finished up installation at the VFW Field in 2012 , and went back at it again this spring at the other two fields. The crew just completed work at the Little League Field and are currently busy at the Pony League Field. Fans and athletes will appreciate the new aluminum bleachers for years to come. In other actions, • the borough crew prepped the area on Laurel Drive where Penelec will be installing a new street light. • council agreed to bid out a small paving project encompassing sections of 4th Avenue, Brubaker Street and Haida Avenue. • Police Chief Ron Sharkey reported 83 calls in March and 281 year-to-date calls.

Rooneys to headline Mount Aloysius ceremony

Mount Aloysius President Tom Foley has announced that Patricia R. Rooney will serve as the collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Commencement Speaker for 2013. Mrs. Rooney is the wife of former Ambassador to Ireland, and Pittsburgh Steeler owner Dan Rooney. The 160th Commencement of Mount Aloysius will take place in the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Health and Physical Fitness Center on Saturday, May 11 at 10 a.m. During the Mount Aloysius Commencement ceremonies, the College will confer four honorary degrees. Recipients include: Patricia R. and Dan Rooney, receiving Doctor of Social Justice degrees as a couple, honoris causa; MIT Professor Jim Walsh, Ph.D., receiving the doctor of Humane Letters degree honoris and Shirley A. Pechter, of Altoona, receiving the Doctor of Social Justice degree, honoris causa. Delivering the invocation for commencement will be April Tewksbury of Wyalusing, Pa., a cum laude graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration, specializing in Health Care Administration. Tewksbury is a Mercy Presidential Scholar. Offering a welcome message to the commencement gathering will be Jennifer Smith of Claysburg. Smith is a summa cum laude graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology with a specialization in Counseling. She is a distinguished member of the Delta Epsilon Sigma Honor Society. Student Speaker for the Mount Aloysius College 2013 commencement is Jessica Seasoltz of Altoona. Seasoltz will graduate, magna cum laude, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology with a specialization in Pre-Health Professional. Seasoltz is a distinguished member of the Delta Epsilon Sigma Honor Society. Mount Aloysius President Foley noted that the roster of honorary degree recipients reflects the need of the College to cite excellence across a spectrum of values. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In each honorary degree recipient we acknowledge substantial contributions to our world,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In honoring Patricia and Dan Rooney, we cite principled leadership, service to community and country, philanthropy and their deep commitment to excellence and ethics in athletics. Dr. Jim Walsh, an internationally acclaimed expert in terrorism, embraced the Collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s yearlong theme of hospitality as our Moral Choices spring lecturer for 2013, successfully merging it with the intricacies of international diplomacy. And, for those who know Altoonaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own Shirley Pechter her generosity and passion that drive her support of the arts, and her personal commitment to preventing teen suicide - understand the logic of her being our choice for this special honor. The faculty, staff, our Board of Trustees and our graduates are all looking forward to having these four exceptional people be part of our 2013 commencement.â&#x20AC;?
