Patton woman earns recognition at Pennsylvania Farm Show January 16, 2014

By Megan Riner

of Mainline Newspapers

For Sharon Karlheim of Patton, winning a second-place ribbon in the Pennsylvania Farm show was a piece of cake. A six-layer chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting and toasted marshmallow filling, to be exact. In order to even enter a pie or cake into the Pennsylvania Farm Show, held in Harrisburg every January, the pie or cake had to have placed at a Pennsylvania fair. Sharon entered her prize-winning chocolate cake and apple pie into the Greene Township Fair, more locally known as the Cookport Fair, and won first place for the cake and a second place for the pie. In the Harmony Fair, she entered her angel food cake and apple pie and earned a first-place ribbon for each. Winning second place for her chocolate cake at the Pennsylvania Farm Show was a wonderful achievement. Twelve cakes were chosen from the 74 entered. From the 12, it was narrowed down to five, and those five were ranked from first to fifth. “It’s a huge accomplishment,� Sharon said. The farm show welcomes thousands of people and Sharon was aware she was competing with “culinary works of art.� The pies and cakes not only had to taste good, they had to look good, too. All entries were judged on taste and appearance, along with their moisture and SEE SHOW, PAGE 18

STAR Productions announces auditions for new spring show MAINLINE EXTRA - Thursday, January 16, 2014 - PAGE 3

Actors needed to participate in abbreviated Shakespeare comedy STAR Productions at Saint Francis University will hold auditions for its spring production of, “If We Shadows”, on Friday, Jan. 17, Saturday, Jan. 18, and Sunday, Jan. 19, in the Studio -basement of the Southern Allegheny Museum of Arts, on the Loretto campus. Audition times will be from 1- 3 p.m. each day. The performance dates are

April 1 through April 5. “If We Shadows” is a shortened (40 minutes) innovative way to present Shakespeare’s comedy, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” The production needs actors to employ script in hand Readers’ Theatre techniques to speak the lines of the text. Their vocal performances will be

accompanied by actors silently moving behind a shadow curtain portraying the action of the play. No preparation is required. Audition material and preparation time will be provided at the time of the audition. Persons of all ages and ranges of expertise can be a part of this adventure. A willingness to accept the challenge of doing

something theatrically different is all that is needed. Due to the flexible structure of the play, various groups will be able to rehearse separately until the time when the production moves to JFK Auditorium. The production will be overseen by Bonnie M. Resinski. Address questions to bresinski@francis.edu.

Tips to help you prepare for tax time

Although most have said their fond farewells to 2013, thought needs to be given to the 12 months that just passed as taxfiling season approaches. Tax day is a few months away, but it’s never too soon to begin preparations for filing income taxes. Some people prefer to toast the new year and then arrange appointments with their accountants, while others use the new year as an opportunity to get organized and start compiling paperwork and tax questions. Preparing for tax time at the dawn of a new year can make the process go more smoothly in the months ahead. Here are some tips on how to prepare for the upcoming tax season. • Start a documents folder. Employers, charitable organizations, banks and other financial institutions begin mailing out tax forms from the previous year in early January. Individuals should keep their eyes open for any mail that appears to be tax-related. Store these documents in a folder that can protect any sensitive information. Such folders also make information more accessible as more and more documents arrive in the mail. • Begin collecting receipts and itemizing expenses. Many expenses are tax-deductible. These can include education costs, moving expenses, home improvements, medical expenses, charitable donations and

childcare costs. Store receipts and other documentation, including canceled checks, with the other tax documents. These will come in handy should an audit ever be ordered. • Create a spreadsheet of important information. It is handy to have all financial information at the ready. Some accountants will lower their fees if people do some of the filing preparation work themselves. This can include creating a profit/loss statement on investments, or working up a tally of charitable donations. Make an itemized list of all pertinent information so it will be handy when tax-filing time arrives. • Decide on a filing option. Technology has made filing taxes much easier. Tax preparation software is available for those who choose to file their taxes themselves. There also are walk-in centers that will prepare tax-filing documents. Individuals also can visit a certified public accountant. Whatever method taxpayers choose, allow for ample time to gather information and get the taxes filed by the deadline. Leave some wiggle room in case one filing method doesn’t work out. • Start saving money. Although the goal is to get a refund each and every year, taxpayers sometimes owe money, which can be troublesome for men and women whose budgets

are stretched thin already. Those who owed money in the past should begin saving money for tax expenses as early as possible. • Develop a good filing system. Many financial professionals will advise people to keep financial records for seven years. Any tax documents should be kept together should they need to be referenced or if an audit is ordered. Designate a filing cabinet or a box specifically for tax documents. Tax filing season is right around the corner, and now is a

great time for men and women to start gathering documents

and preparing their returns.

Actors planning to return to area for upcoming film premiere PAGE 6 - Thursday, January 16, 2014 - MAINLINE EXTRA

By Justin Eger

of Mainline Newspapers

A madman in the woods. A woman on the run. A battle of wits. A battle for survival. These are the key themes in “Moreau,� a Hollywood-level film production brought to Cambria County by Poke the Bear productions and director Christopher James Cramer. Just a few short weeks ago, Mainline Newspapers had the pleasure of speaking with Cramer about the production, and now, as friendsand-family premiere for the film approaches, cast members of the suspenseful thriller took a few moments out of their hectic and busy schedules to discuss working on the movie, as well as working in Cambria County, which most would not consider a haven of filmmaking. “It was a little bit of a culture shock but not really,� shared Theodore Bouloukos, who plays the titular villain, Moreau. “I live in New York City now, which is obviously a lot different than Ebensburg, but I’m from Albany, and being in Cambria County was a lot like being back home.� “The amount of support that we received in Cambria County just astonished me,� added Joanna Haffner, who pulled double duty as both a producer and as Charlie, one of Moreau’s victims. “First of all, we definitely hit the scenery jackpot. We were blessed with gorgeous fall scenery throughout the entire movie and I believe the only day it rained (and by rain I mean drizzle for an hour or so), was actually on our day off, so that worked out really nicely. Aside from the beautiful autumn backdrop, the people just went above and beyond to accommodate us. From offering us their houses to simply showing us support through kind words of encouragement, I really believe we were spoiled during the filming of ‘Moreau;’ I'd shoot again in Cambria County in a heartbeat.� Pamela Cappetta, mom of actress Gigi Cappetta, who plays a younger version of Haffner’s character in the film, agreed. “As long-time Pennsylvania natives and homestate proud people, we must say that autumn with the stunning backdrop of the Allegheny Mountains at peak season change, is about as gorgeous a scene you will find in nature,� she said, adding, “The experience of filming in Cambria was eye-opening in its beauty, amazingly kindnatured people, rich history and historical homes. I’m sure what we experienced was just a small piece of the beauty this area offers its out

of town visitors.� What brought the group — actors, producers, and crew —together, though was Cramer’s script, a tale that centers on a battle of wits between a man obsessed with hunting the most dangerous game on earth ... man himself. It is Moreau’s obsession and villainy that is central to the films narrative, but it is the script as a whole, the battle of these women against Moreau’s diabolical genius, that drew everyone to the film. “Moreau was born when I was talking with Chris and I mentioned to him that I had always wanted to do a suspense film,� Haffner shared. “Not the cheesy slasher films that often do well in the box office, but a really intelligent survival-suspense film. With that, Chris remembered the short story, ‘The Most Dangerous Game,’ that he had read in high school, and initially planned to make a short film out of it. As he ran the ideas and the script by people, everyone was so on board with it and so supportive that it turned into this magnificent full-length feature film.� “Gigi was just starting out in her acting career and we were very excited when we saw this role advertised in a trade magazine, for several reasons,� Pamela added. “‘Moreau’ was being filmed locally, the character’s description fit Gigi like a glove, and it sounded like just the sort of role that puts a child actor on the map. Ultimately, we were intrigued by the story. Gigi’s dad

was familiar with the short story that Moreau references, and once the Christopher sent us the script, as an avid reader and fan of suspense/thriller genre, Gigi’s dad said it was double thumbs up, go for it.� “It’s one of those great adventure stories that boys read,� Bouloukos agreed, speaking of the original inspiration for “Moreau.� “You take that, and then you have this script that is intelligent and adventurous, with this just diabolical villain. He’s gentlemanly, seemingly passive and erudite, like he’s the neighbor next door, but he’s just a f---ing psycho! He’s not a backwoods hayseed, either. He’s a learned man, and when I read the script, I felt like I could lend myself to the role, like I really knew what this character could be.� What followed was a tight, relatively inexpensive schedule that brought the cast and crew back to Cramer’s old Cambria County stomping grounds, and though the work was rigorous and at times difficult, the result was something that each of the actors describes as being somewhat magical, with both Bouloukos and Cappetta referring to what became a “wonderful, unlikely, sometimes motley, always hungry, constantly moving, mostly underslept, hilarious, happy, sad, gleeful, and homesick, definitely united for life, incredible family.� That family, too, included people from Cambria County, for which the cast and crew were immensely grateful.

opened their homes to us (despite the mud-covered cast and crew) and even offered to do our laundry! If that doesn't show support, then I don't know what does! Seriously though, I can't say thank you enough to everyone who helped us out.” Each of the actors, too, had a moment or two that ultimately stood out for them as being central to the experience of not only shooting “Moreau,” but doing so here in Cambria County. “I think if I had to choose one moment where it all ‘hit me,’ I would say it was when we all went out for some pizza after a day of filming. Our waitress asked if we were the film crew that she had heard about in the paper and wished us the best of luck,” Haffner recalled. “I realized how unique our experience was in Cambria County because of the small town vibe it provided. Just knowing that people knew about us and were rooting for us to succeed was enough to make everyone smile.” “I remember thinking, ‘I’m 50 years old, my friends are bankers in nice, warm houses, and I’m in the mud,” Bouloukos joked, recalling that, not long after, he visited a local Sheetz dressed in his character’s hunting clothes, only to be asked how the season was going for him. “That was enormously flattering! I felt like I was getting it right, being accepted by all these other guys who really were hunters. Then, when they found out I was a part of the movie crew, they were so kind and wished us good luck. That was incredible.” On Feb. 1, 2014, “Moreau” will make its very limited debut to the public at the Arcadia Theatre in Windber. The formal event will have a limited amount of seating, but will offer participants the full red-carpet experience, complete with photos along the entranceway, and a chance to meet with the actors and crew following the screening. Tickets to the premiere are $25, with an additional $10 charge for those interested in attending the after-party with cast and crew. “We were blessed with very many courtesies from the area while we were there, and what better way to celebrate that, and the completion of the film, than by bringing it to the area for this premiere?” Bouloukos summed up. For more about “Moreau,” or to learn more about the premiere, visit www.poke-the-bear.com.

On paper, this coming weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s AFC and NFC conference championship games are the best in recent NFL playoff memory. The teams seem like the right ones â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the best two, over the course of the season, in each respective conference. But what will get people most excited, of course, are the quarterback matchups in each game. The first game between the New England Patriots and Denver Broncos will be yet another chapter in the rivalry of two of the greatest quarterbacks to play the game, both of whom have entered the autumnal periods of their storied careers. The second game, between the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks, is a matchup of young pups, two quarterbacks with

salary cap-friendly contracts and that sheen of potential greatness to come. But the NFC Championship game will be as much about defense and running attacks as it is the mobile quarterbacks. To be sure, Russell Wilson, the second-year quarterback for the Seahawks, played a significant role in getting his team to this point. He led the Seahawks to a 13-3 record in the regular season and homefield advantage in the playoffs. And though he was the lesser of the two quarterbacks on Saturday (New Orleans Saints quarterbacks, Drew Brees, outplayed him), he made no mistakes in leading his team to the win. But just as significant, his bargain-basement salary (his base of $526,217 this year means 1255 NFL players made more money than he did) has allowed the Seahawks to build a SEE MANNING, PAGE 18

JETSA raises late payment fee PAGE 12 -Thursday, January 16, 2014 - MAINLINE EXTRA

The board of the Jackson-East Taylor Sewer Authority held its reorganization meeting Thursday evening, Jan. 9, and voted to maintain the status quo for 2014. The board’s officers were reappointed (George Burkey as chairman, Bob Templeton as vice chairman, Don Ochenrider as secretary, Mary Ann Hicks as treasurer, and Dan Yahnert as assistant secretary-treasurer), and the board retained the services of solicitor Alex Svirsko, of engineer Dan Carbaugh of Keller Engineers, and of accountant Dennis Kotzan. In addition, the authority’s depositories will continue to be AmeriServ, Somerset Trust Company, and the Pennsylvania Local Government Investment Trust. Board meetings will be held at 7 p.m. on the second Thursday of the month at the JETSA office building, located at 2603 William Penn Avenue (Route 271), near the Jackson-East Taylor line. The remaining 2014 meeting dates are Feb. 13, March 13, April 10, May 8, June, 12, July 10, Aug. 14, Sept. 11, Oct. 9, Nov. 13, and Dec. 11. JETSA board meetings are open to the public. Under new business, board members discussed increasing the penalty for late payment of customers’ bills. Every month, between 250 and 300 JETSA customers do not pay their bills by the due date, meaning that the following month’s bill is a double bill sent in a stamped envelope. The $2.50 penalty fee, which had been in effect since 1998, was determined to be no longer sufficient to cover the ever-rising costs of envelopes, stamps, and the manual stuffing, sealing, and stamping of delinquent bills. Solicitor Alex Svirsko pointed out that the penalty fee “must be reasonably related to something” — like debt service, for example. When the $2.50 penalty fee was enacted, the authority’s debt service was approximately $25 per customer; thus, the fee represented 10 percent of a customer’s portion of the debt service. According to engineer

Dan Carbaugh, the current debt service, per customer, is $27 to $28. After a bit of discussion and public comment, board members voted to increase the penalty for late payment by 75 cents to $3.25. The new fee will be go into effect for the next billing cycle. During public comment on non-agenda items, a customer asked why the board raised JETSA’s basic rate from $38 to $40 during its December meeting. She said she had heard a rumor that the authority was “sitting” on money. Chairman Burkey answered that the JETSA system “has been in the ground since 1998” and that for many of the ensuing years, the system was deluged with millions of gallons of excess inflow and infiltration. This inflow — now under control since most customers’ laterals have been pressure tested and repaired, as required — stressed the system, causing undue wear and tear at pumping stations. “It’s time to start replacing everything,” he said, adding that these capital improvements would take place over time. Burkey added that the $2 rate increase would generate approximately $55,000 annually, a sum insufficient to buy pumps for two stations, let alone fund other purchases that must be made, like a new truck. Among their routine monthly business, board members approved time sheets, the payment of current bills, and minutes from their December meeting, They also accepted Mary Ann Hicks’ financial report, which lists balances for the following funds: general ($71,337.76), revenue temporary investment ($138,371.26), and money market account ($424,879.64). The report also includes the balances of two loans from the Pennsylvania Infrastructure and Investment Authority: $7,601,220.53 for the authority’s older loan, and $2,387,058.90 for the newer loan. The board’s final action for the evening — before entering an executive session with Svirsko to discuss possible litigation — was to approve changing the authority’s office hours. Beginning Feb. 1, the JETSA office will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The Mount Aloysius Art Alliance is issuing a public call for cow art.

Munster passes conduct resolution By Rachel Vasilko

of Mainline Newspapers

During the reorganization meeting on Jan. 6, the Munster Township Board of Supervisors adopted a resolution outlining acceptable conduct of citizens during public meetings. No similar policy has ever been adopted in the township in the past. The resolution was presented to the board by solicitor Dan Stants. Resolution 01-06-14 states, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The following procedures exist to provide maximum opportunity for public access to meetings and/or hearings of the Board of Supervisors and to ensure as little disruption as possible to the proceedings.â&#x20AC;? The new policy prohibits loud outbursts, rudeness, profanity or other disruptive behavior. The chairman of the board, as the presiding official, will ask offenders to comply. If they refuse the request of the chair-

man, then they will be barred from the remainder of the meeting. The resolution also sets the time allocated for public comment at each meeting to five minutes per person, so as not to prevent the conduct of the meeting. The resolution was adopted and signed, and will now be in affect. In addition to the resolution, the supervisors also welcomed newly-elected supervisor Pat Lee, and they elected new officers for the year 2014. Gene Orlosky was elected chairman and Pat Lee was elected vice chairman and assistant secretary. He will take the place of secretary/treasurer Alice Mento if she is unable to attend a meeting for any reason. Lee was also appointed as the townshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s representative for building codes and sewer enforcement. Supervisor Jeff Freidof was again selected as roadmaster. The board also agreed to retain Stants from Goldstein, Helsop, Steele, Clapper and Oswalt as township solicitor, and Richard Wray from Hegemann and Wray as township engineer. After the reorganization, the supervisors discussed regular monthly business. Mento told the board that she had received the bridge inspection report for the Spinner Road bridge, which is set to be replaced in the coming year. She said that she had not heard any word from the Department of Environmental Protection about the status of the bridge. During Wrayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s engineerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report, the supervisors asked him about road permits for Sunoco Logistics, as the compa-

ny works on repairing the natural gas line. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how they are going to proceed,â&#x20AC;? Wray said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know at what time they will need permits.â&#x20AC;? Freidof told Wray that Sunoco Logistics is already hauling equipment on Patrick Road, and should have an excess roadway agreement with the township. Wray said that he believed Sunoco would only need permits for the second phase of the project, and he would be in contact to set things straight. Wray also presented the board with plans for Woody Auckerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s addition to his riding barn. Wray said that he wishes to build a bathroom in the barn, to cut back on the amount of manure being tracked into his home. Wray said that Deb Sedlmeyer from the Cambria County Sewer Enforcement Agency had already approved the on-lot system plans, and Wray said that the plans look acceptable to him, as well.

Nanty Glo council passes contract Carrolltown reappoints leadership for new year PAGE 16 -Thursday, January 16, 2014 - MAINLINE EXTRA

By Jim Lauffer

of Mainline Newspapers

A contract is now in place between the Borough of Nanty Glo and members of the municipalityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s road crew. Council members unanimously approved the contract at their Monday, Jan. 6, meeting. According to borough solicitor Michael Carbonara, the contract â&#x20AC;&#x153;reflects what was agreed to at negotiations,â&#x20AC;? and he recommended that council â&#x20AC;&#x153;execute the contract as drafted.â&#x20AC;? Members also approved the boroughâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2014 final budget, which is balanced, and passed Ordinance No. 2014-02, which levies borough taxes and fixes the tax rate for the year. For general purposes, borough property owners will be assessed 13.95 mills, and for electric purposes, the sum of 1.75 mills will be assessed, bringing the boroughâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s total real estate tax to 15.7 mills. Mayor Steve Szymusiak opened his monthly report by offering words of thanks to two groups. First, he expressed his appreciation to the Nanty Glo Polish-American Citizens Club for donating $2,000 to the police department shortly before Christmas. The mayor noted that the department used the money to purchase much-needed supplies

and equipment. Second, he thanked the Saint Francis University Police Department for enabling Capt. Mike Oyaski, officer in charge of the NGPD, to attend a TASER instructor-certification class in December. The mayor closed his report by pointing out that the police department collected $1,055.69 in fines during December and that eight officers had handled a total of 120 calls during the same month. The calls included nine traffic stops, four parking complaints, two complaints about dogs, two assaults, two ordinance violations, two hit-and-runs, two noise complaints, one residential burglary, one overdose, and one case of public drunkenness. In routine business, council members approved the minutes of their December meeting and the Januaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s treasurerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report and authorized payment of the monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bills. The treasurerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report lists a total balance of $191,714.08 for the boroughâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funds as of Jan. 1, 2014 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a sum that includes amounts from the following funds: Liquid fuels ($15,465.93), C&G general account ($166,690), PLGIT general account ($7,311.57), and streets and roads savings account ($1,390.27). The monthly bills totaled $20,050.94 and were paid from the three funds: General ($11,448.60), electric ($2,126.81), and liquid fuels ($6,475.53).

Portage Township seeks supervisor as elected officials reorganize board By Amanda Petrunak of Mainline Newspapers

The Portage Township supervisors met on Monday, Jan. 6 at the Municipal Building at 6 p.m. The meeting was held an hour earlier due to the reorganization elections. Once the meeting was called to order, the new officers were named. Ruby Moore was voted temporary chairman, secretary, and assistant treasurer. Rick Olshavsky was elected as ViceChairman for the board. Calvin J. Webb II will be the new legal counsel. The board also named the EADs Group as the engineer to represent the township. Rick Shaffer was appointed the new road master for the township, as well. Tyler Shaffer, Rick Shaffer, and Dave Noland will be the new salary road crew workers. These

road crew assignments will make three full-time positions. There was quite the dilemma when the new supervisor election took place. Rick Olshavsky was voted in for another term, but Ben Selepack and Jeff Kostan did not make the new cut. Bill Cooper won both positions, which leaves only two supervisors on the board at the moment. Cooper stated that he tried to call the courthouse when the elections were taking place, because he did not want to win both spots; he believed Selepack was the proper candidate to be the third member on the board. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will only vote for Benny; heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been on the board before. He knows this township better than any of us,â&#x20AC;? said Cooper when addressing Olshavsky. Olshavsky came back with the remark that he

wanted to send out letters of interest to see if anyone else in the community would be interested with the position. Selepack even flashed his application, as he sat in the crowd in the back of the room. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am applying again,â&#x20AC;? stated Selepack. After much discussion between Olshavsky and Cooper, they decided that if no one else was interested in the job, Selepack would be voted back onto the board. When the votes came in, he was just a few votes beneath Cooper. Selepack would have been the next candidate in-line for the position. The board will makes its final decision at the next meeting, which will be held Wednesday, Feb. 5, at the township building on Miller Shaft road. As always, anyone is welcome to attend.

At the reorganization meeting of the Carrolltown Borough on Monday, Jan. 6, the newly elected and re-elected members of the council took the Oath of Office administered by Mayor Jim Ertter. Joining the re-elected councilmen Luke Baker, Jim McCann, and Ron Gwizdak, was newly-elected councilman Drew Thomas. Following the oath, each had to sign a loyalty oath form. Tim Spangler and Jim McCann were re-elected to serve as council president and council vice president, respectively. Spangler was also appointed to the municipal authority for a five year term and to represent Cambria County Tax Collection Committee. A motion was made to hold the 2014-15 meetings on the first Monday of each month at 7 p.m. If the first Monday should be a holiday, the meeting will be held the first Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m. The next reorganization meeting will be held on Jan. 4, 2016. Another motion was made that named AmeriServ Financial Bank in Johnstown as depository

for borough funds.

Coronerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office earns recognition from county commissioners

MAINLINE EXTRA - Thursday, January 16, 2014 - PAGE 17

By Justin Eger

of Mainline Newspapers

While various officials might have joked that the coronerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office is an awfully quiet part of Cambria Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s services during the Jan. 9 meeting of the Board of Commissioners, it was with great pleasure that the board was able to sing the praises of two parts of that office. It was just recently that chief deputy coroner Jeffrey Lees and first deputy Herman â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peteâ&#x20AC;? Long completed a lengthy and thorough certification process with the American Board of Medicolegal Death Investigators, and it was this effort that brought them to the attention of the commissioners this month. The American Board of Medicolegal Death Investigators is a voluntary national, not-for-profit, independent professional certification board that has been established to promote the highest standards of practice for medicolegal death investigators. ABMDI certifies individuals who have the proven knowledge and skills necessary to perform medicolegal death investigations, and is accredited by the Forensic Specialties Accreditation Board and reaccredited in 2010. For their part, Lees and Long participated in a certification program that involved completing approximately 300 different tasks in 52 different categories, all culminating with a four-hour written examination to test their knowledge of the field. The process took the two to Baltimore, Maryland, and earned them the respect of Cambria County Coroner Dennis Kwiatkowski. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very proud,â&#x20AC;? Kwiatkowski said.

Representatives of the Cambria County Coronerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office were recognized for their committment to advanced and exceptional training. Participating in the recognition event are (from left) Commissioner Thomas Chernisky, Chief Deputy coroner Jeffrey Lees, First Deputy Herman â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peteâ&#x20AC;? Long, Commissioner Douglas Lengenfelder, and Commissioner Mark Wissinger. Photo by Justin Eger.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;These guys put in a lot of time and effort to show the people of Cambria County that we are stepping up in preparation for the future.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sit back and let the future come up,â&#x20AC;? Long agreed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have to try to stay on top of things, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing the best job we can for the people of the county.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is an honor,â&#x20AC;? Lees added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but it just reinforces that we are providing the utmost technical knowledge to the people we serve.â&#x20AC;? Away from the more enjoyable recognition portion of the meeting, the board did implement a number of personnel matters, most

importantly establishing two members of the Cambria County Conservation and Recreation Authority. As per the appointments approved by the commissioners, Charles Gironda and Brad Clemenson will both serve five years with the authority, beginning this month and ending their service on Dec. 31, 2018. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got two good people here with an interest and a passion for the work that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to do,â&#x20AC;? explained commissioner Thomas Chernisky, who described Gironda as someone who is already an active participant in the affairs of the Conservation and Recreation Authority, and

noted that Clemenson is already greatly experienced with trails and conservation not just in the county, but throughout the region. Additionally, the commissioners established Daniel Zakraysek as the new fulltime highways safety and project coordinator. President Commissioner Douglas Lengenfelder shared that Zakraysek was the winner of an intense interview process filled with â&#x20AC;&#x153;phenomenalâ&#x20AC;? candidates, with Commissioner Mark Wissinger adding that Zakraysek will bring a lot of enthusiasm and experience to the job, which will oversee programs in six counties, not just Cambria.

strong running game (led by Marshawn Lynch) and a dominant defense. Same, too, for the 49ers, led by their lanky and brazen quarterback, Colin Kaepernick, who seems to be growing more confident as the season and postseason grinds on. Kaepernickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s base this year is not much higher than Wilsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at $740,844. The 49ers, too, rely on a robust running game and a very good defense, and have had money to spend in both areas. Even the 49ers excellent punter, Andy Lee, makes more in salary ($1.8 million) than Kaepernick. The AFC Championship game is a complete contrast to the NFC game. Peyton Manning and Tom Brady are both classic, drop-back quarterbacks, known for their savvy and not their running ability. They also both eat up large portions of their respective teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s salary caps. Bradyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $1 million base salary in 2013 is misleading. He has $33 million in guaranteed money, and accounted for a nearly $14 million cap hit this year. The Patriots have been his team going back to 2001. They are still his team, but they look different now. On Saturday they relied heavily on the running of the rejuvenated LaGarrette Blount (166 yards rushing and four touchdowns). Perhaps Brady has entered the late-stage John Elway period, relying on a running game thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been basically non-existent since he took over as the Patriots starting quarterback. You have the feeling that Brady could be back here again in coming years, that the end of his career may still be a few years away. You do not get that feeling with Manning, especially given the report that his surgicallyrepaired neck will be re-evaluated in the off-season, to see if a continuation of his career is even viable. (The guess here is that he will play next year, but this report does raise a question: If an evaluation is needed for next year, is one also needed now, to make sure he should still be playing?) Manning made a base salary of $15 million in 2013, the highest base salary in the league. Manning is the story of these playoffs. Before yesterdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game, he was questioned by his hometown newspaper, for legitimate reasons. When you take into account Manningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regular season excellence (167 wins and 73 losses), he is a postseason enigma, a very mediocre 10-11 in playoff games. And yet here he is again, one step away of making his third Super Bowl appearance (heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1-1 in the big game). A Super Bowl championship would finally put him on equal footing with his younger brother, Eli, who owns two rings, and would make one of the greatest sibling duos in sports history even greater. (Off top of head, the best sibling duos in sports: 1) The Williams sisters 2) The Manning brothers 3) The Mahre brothers.) The game next Sunday against the Patriots and Brady (their 15th meeting; Brady holds a 10-4 edge) will certainly be one of Manningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last chances to put a valedictory stamp on his excellent career and put his naysayers back on their heels for good. The organizers of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Super Bowl are already winners. No matter what the weather holds in the first-ever cold-weather outdoor Super Bowl, they will have some heat in a buzzy matchup of one old dog (either Brady or Manning) versus a young pup (Wilson or Kaepernick).

their crumb. Sharonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chocolate cake was garnished with chopped peanuts on the sides and large peanut butter cream flowers on top, with peanut butter cups in the centers of the flowers. Frostings and fillings were also evaluated and played a part in the judgesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; final decisions. Sharonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s apple pie and angel food cake also did very well with the judges, each making it to the second round. Though neither earned her a ribbon, the apple pie, the crust cut to look like a quilt, placed in the judgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top 25 out of 70 other

apple pies. The angel food cake, filled with coconut cream filling, frosted with buttercream icing, and adorned with white roses, placed in the judgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top 25 out of 64 other angel food cakes. For Sharon, it was exciting just to make it into the second round of judging for the apple pie and angel food cake. During the second round, the judges had to re-taste the pies and cakes and Sharon watched as the judges went back and forth several times between hers and the other pies and cakes. Next year, Sharon said she is going to try to place with her angel food cake and apple pie.

Patton Borough opts to remove parking meters from streets By Megan Riner

of Mainline Newspapers

The Patton Borough council held its reorganization meeting on Monday, Jan. 6. Newly elected Mayor Gary Ceschini swore in Joe Noel, Fred Shilling, and newcomer Mark Stephens. John Crowell was re-elected to the position of council president and Gary Della Valle was re-elected to the position of vice president. The council made a motion to appoint Thomas Stoy to the Patton Municipal Authority for an additional five years. Linda Conrad and Dennis Welchko were appointed to the Patton Park Commission for an additional five years, as well. After the reorganization meeting, the borough went straight into the regular monthly meeting. The Department of Weights and Measures called before the council meeting informing the borough that the department will no longer be calibrating the parking meters. Instead, they will offer a class at the end of the month to certify borough personnel in meter calibration. However, the Patton

MAINLINE EXTRA - Thursday, January 16, 2014 - PAGE 19

Borough council decided to just do away with the meters altogether. Once the weather clears in the spring, meters on 5th Avenue, the 300, 400, and 500 sections of Magee Avenue, and the 800 block of 4th Avenue will be removed. It is not clear yet how the borough will control parking along these areas once the meters are removed, but it is something the council will be discussing in the upcoming months. The street department is continuing with their winter maintenance. Though the borough still has plenty of road salt, more will need to be ordered before the winter season is over. EMC Insurance has denied coverage of some of the special events that take place in Patton throughout the year. Secretary Donna Dunegan has contacted the company to see what can be done. The insurance company will not cover any event where alcohol is served. Over the weekend of Jan. 4 and 5, a pipe burst in the fire tower in the municipal building. The radiator will need to be replaced. Parts of the building sustained carpet and linoleum damage.

County proposes crowdfunding By Justin Eger

of Mainline Newspapers

In recent years, a number of artists and entertainers have turned towards crowdfunding initiatives to see their dreams become a reality. Want to get a book published? Ask people to help you by fronting the money needed to reach your goal, and entice them with special extras in thanks for their support. Every day, thousands of projects are available through websites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo, and many become a reality through the sheer power of internet users donating one dollar at a time to something they believe in. One of the most famous instances of early crowdfunding was an effort to have a statue of Robocop erected in the city of Detroit, where the first â&#x20AC;&#x153;Robocopâ&#x20AC;? film was set. In little more than a month, 2,717 backers pledged $67,436 to the cause, bringing Robocop back to the streets of Detroit. Since then, thousands of projects, of scales both great and small, have been successfully funded by the scores of humans who simply believe that the goal is worthy of one or 100 dollars of their hardearned cash. With so many successes, it is no surprise that Cambria County is dipping its toes into the crowdfunding waters, as well. On the morning of Jan. 9, the Cambria County Board of Commissioners announced that it would be establishing a partnership with Citizinvestor, a crowdfunding website organized for government entities and their official partners. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The commissioners believe that we all can be an integral part in helping to develop our communities and county,â&#x20AC;? the board posted on

the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why not donate to projects which are close to your heart (or perhaps close to your residency)? With your assistance, we can complete area projects that may, otherwise, remain unstarted or unfinished due to a lack of funding.â&#x20AC;? According to citizinvestor.com, once a project is posted to citizinvestor.com, citizens can donate tax-deductibly to the projects of their choice. Although citizens are asked to enter their credit card information right away, they will not be charged unless the project reaches 100 percent of its funding goal before the funding deadline, which is typically about 90 days. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Money is tight, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to change any time soon,â&#x20AC;? explained president commissioner Douglas Lengenfelder. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This will provide people with the opportunity to donate to good causes that the county doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the money to support.â&#x20AC;? Citizinvestor will not require the county to spend any money on the partnership, either. All of Citizinvestorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overhead is covered through the eight percent fee that the site assesses for each project. As Lengenfelder explained, if you want to fund a project that costs $3,000, set your goal at $3,240 ($3,000 plus eight percent of $3,000) to cover the fee, and your project is ready to go. Lengenfelder shared that Citizinvestor began with pilot programs in and around Boston and Philadelphia, and boasts a 65 percent success rate. Among the more publicized efforts was a move by Central Falls, Rhode Island, to fund a $10,000 park cleanup and recycling project, which met with great success.
