Cambria County Farm Bureau awards student scholarships January 3, 2014
By Megan Riner
of Mainline Newspapers
The average cost of a college tuition, including room and board, is approximately $55,000. That number almost doubles for private for-profit institutions and almost triples for private not-for-profit institutions. For an 18-year-old just starting off, those numbers can be terrifying, and trying to figure out how to pay for it all is even more frightening. Luckily, there are organizations who wish to help alleviate the financial burden of college by offering scholarships to students. The Cambria County Farm Bureau awards several scholarships each year to students wishing to further their education after high school, whether it be at a four-year university or trade school, as long as the applicant is considered a fulltime student. Applicantsâ€™ parents must be members of the Farm Bureau. On Dec. 27, Cambria County Farm Bureau treasurer Mary Lou Smithmyer presented scholarships to Victoria Minor, Molly Smithmyer and Travis Yahner. Each received a $300 check to use in any way they wish to help with the costs of post-secondary education. Two of the scholarships were provided by the Farm Bureau; the money for the other scholarship was donated by Rick Mock. Minor, Smithmyer, and Yahner were chosen out of several applicants. Applicants were required to write an essay of 300 words or less outlining their community involvement, SEE AWARDS, PAGE 13

Governor announces end to private lottery management bid MAINLINE EXTRA - Friday, January 3, 2014 - PAGE 3
Governor Tom Corbett this week announced that the commonwealth and Camelot Global LLC will not continue to pursue the Lottery Private Management Agreement, and his administration will continue to fight for the best interests of the Older Pennsylvanians by looking for other ways to grow revenue. “We have decided not to extend Camelot’s bid for the Lottery
Private Management Agreement first reached over a year ago,” Gov. Corbett said. “As we move forward, we will take what we’ve learned to make our successful lottery even better — expanding the player and retailer base, improving player loyalty, and implementing strategies that will grow our lottery, responsibly and efficiently.” “I want to thank the teams for the hard work and effort,” Corbett
said. “Our continued goal is to ensure a growing, predictable revenue stream for senior programs to meet the growing demand, and we will continue to work with all stakeholders and interested parties to explore new ways to harness market resources to enhance our Lottery’s continued success.” In April 2012, the commonwealth began the competitive procurement process to engage a pri-

vate manager to run the Pennsylvania Lottery. Last November, it announced Camelot Global, LLC, a global leader in the lottery sector, as the selected vendor and awarded the contract. However, the process was later challenged by the Attorney General, prompting several extensions of the bid. Pennsylvania initially pursued a contract for management services
to assure a more predictable and growing revenue source for older Pennsylvanians and to keep up with the anticipated demand for our growing senior population. Pennsylvania awarded the management agreement, which would have assured at least $34.6 billion in profit – an increase of up to $5 billion — that could have been invested in senior programs throughout the life of the contract.

Produce to People looks to serve PAGE 4 - Friday, January 3, 2014 - MAINLINE EXTRA
By Rachel Vasilko
of Mainline Newspapers
The Produce to People Food Distribution Program will continue in Cambria County in 2014, and there are some plans in the works to expand the program to reach more families in the local area, as well. Produce to People is organized and operated by the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. The program was expanded to Cambria County, specifically the Johnstown area, this past year. Each month fresh produce is distributed to over 600 families in Cambria County, each taking home about 35 to 45 pounds of fruits and vegetables. â€œIt is just a wonderful way to supplement what the local food panties are already giving out - non-perishable items,â€? said Donna Crowe of the Cornerstone Leadership Foundation, which helps with the distributions. Last month, Crowe said each family received a 10-pound bag of potatoes and a three-pound bag of onions, along with salad greens, peppers, blueberries, carrots and other fresh produce. â€œWhatever they have available, we hand it out,â€? Crowe said. According to Crowe, much of the produce is grown within the state, and is given to the Food Bank through farm gleaning donations. Farmers often find themselves with a surplus of unmarketable produce because anything that is not commercial grade produce is left behind in the fields. Food Bank staff and volunteers harvest the surplus produce to be distributed to families. â€œOtherwise, there is a ton of food that is wasted every year,â€? Crowe said. Crowe said the Greater Pittsburgh Food Bank sends a truck each month that is loaded with huge boxes of fresh food. Volunteers must sort and repackage the produce before it can be handed out to local families. Currently, distributions take place from 10 a.m. to noon on the first Wednesday of each month at the Johnstown Vo-Tech Center, 445 Schoolhouse Road. The next distribution will be held on Jan. 8 due to the holiday. Crowe said that if school is canceled due to bad
weather then the distribution is canceled as well, but is usually rescheduled. Any family in Cambria County can qualify for the distributions in three ways: if the total household income is below 150 percent of the federal poverty level; if collecting social security retirement, disability, unemployment benefits, medicare, medicaid or SNAP benefits; or if the household is experiencing a food emergency due to a recent move, power outage or other cause. Crowe said that in addition to the monthly distributions in Johnstown, the Cornerstone Leadership Foundation is in the process of setting up mobile distributions to parts of northern Cambria County as well. She said that she wants to reach out to those who are unable to make it to Johnstown each month. â€œWe serve somewhere around 600 families per month, and we know that is just the tip of the iceberg,â€? Crowe said. â€œWeâ€™re hoping this program works out to help everyone in the county.â€? Crowe said that in order to make the mobile distributions a reality the foundation must first work out an agreement with the Somerset Food Pantry to use a refrigerated truck. She said she is currently in the process of working out such an agreement. Crowe said that distribution sites in the northern part of the county must also be established. â€œWe need to find sites where it will be easy to get the food out of the trucks, but also easy for people to go through the distribution line,â€? Crowe said. She said that she has a list of possible sites, but nothing has been decided yet. Crowe said that the expansion of the program within the county is still in the early stages of development. â€œAnyone interested in helping to get this set up, we welcome them to come to the table and lend a hand,â€? Crowe said. Crowe said that in order for the program to be successful, local volunteers are needed. She said that hands are needed to repackage the produce before each distribution. She said that volunteers are also needed to assist those who are

receiving the food because many are elderly or disabled and cannot carry the produce back to their cars. â€œ[Produce to People] is a great way to get people involved in helping other people,â€? Crowe said. According to Crowe, there are already about a dozen organizations and agencies that work together to ensure the success of the Produce to People Food Distribution program. â€œWe want to get as many organizations as we can to come together to do what just one organization cannot do on its own,â€?

County recognized for continued support of military veterans PAGE 6 - Friday, January 3, 2014 - MAINLINE EXTRA

Even as many members of the United States remain away from their loved ones this holiday season, they face many uncertainties. However, their future upon returning home remains just as uncertain, as many come back changed, simply different people than who they were when they left. Thankfully, there exists a strong, and evergrowing network of support for returning veterans, and Cambria County was recently recognized for its efforts to be a part of that network. Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, a Department of Defense office, was established in 1972 to promote cooperation and understanding between Reserve Component Service members and their civilian employers and to assist in the resolution of conflicts arising from an employeeâ€™s military commitment. ESGR is supported by a network of more than 4,900 volunteers in 54 committees located across all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Guam-

On. Dec. 19, Gregory Simmons of ESGR visited the Cambria County Board of Commissioners to express his personal thanks for the countyâ€™s continued support of the ESGR mission. Additionally, he wished to present not just the
commissioners, but the head of every department in the county, with a statement of support from ESGR. This statement, in summary, notes the commitment of each office and departSEE VETERANS, PAGE 13

The Ebensburg Borough council made the decision to promote Sergeant Rob Sapp to the position of assistant chief during the regular meeting on Dec. 16. The council also authorized the advertisement of a full-time police officer position. The council administration committee, made up of council members Joe Lutz and Susan Barber, said that Sapp has satisfied all of the prerequisites for the position of assistant chief, and he has been serving as acting chief when needed. Council approved his promotion, and agreed that his pay will be $22.73 per hour. His new position was effective on Dec. 23, 2013. The position of assistant chief was last held by officer Tony Sebetich. The council administration committee also reported that it is necessary to hire an additional fulltime police officer due to extended illness in the department. Staff recommended that the position be advertised, and applications be due at the end of January. Council authorized the advertisement for the position in accordance with civil service requirements. The committee told council that, after all applications are in, a lengthy testing procedure will follow, and council must appoint a written examination administrator. The staff recommended that Bill Gamble Municipal Police Testing of Oakdale be appointed. According to the administration committee, section one of the test is cognitive, testing the candidates proficiency in reading comprehension, writing skills and general mathematics. Section two is based on attitude and personality characteristics, testing candidates effectiveness in interacting with fellow officers and the public. Council adopted resolution #2013-21 naming, on behalf of the civil service commission, Bill Gamble Municipal Police Testing as the written examination administrator for the police hiring process. The administration committee said the position is likely to be filled in April.

Mike Tomlin not ready to discuss future of Steelers coaching staff Look for us on Facebook!
By Ed Bouchette
There was no Black Monday for the Steelers, who change head coaches about as often as the NFL swaps commissioners. They each have had three over the past 45 seasons. There could be some gray days ahead, however, for some Steelers assistant coaches. Unlike some past seasons, coach Mike Tomlin gave no assurances
that any of his assistants would return for 2014 after consecutive 8-8 records. â€œIâ€™m not going to address any of that,â€? Tomlin answered when asked if both of his coordinators would return. â€œAny personnel issues, any staffing issues, is inappropriate. I havenâ€™t met with the team and I havenâ€™t met with the staff. I will at some point. Obviously, I acknowledge that change is a part of football in staff and in players. But other
than that, Iâ€™m not getting into that today.â€? That is a far cry from when he said â€œI anticipateâ€? both of his coordinatorsâ€™ return after the 2011 season, and what happened later might be why Tomlin answered the way he did on the same subject this time.

president Art Rooney did not
renew his contract. The Steelers issued a statement announcing Arians had â€œretired.â€? Arians became offensive coordinator for the Indianapolis Colts the next season and won NFL Coach of the Year for his work as the interim Colts head coach in 2012 when Chuck Pagano had to step aside for cancer treatments. The Arizona Cardinals subsequently hired Arians as head coach, and, in his first season, he coached them to a 10-6 record, doubling their victories from 2012. So Tomlin might need some time to check with Rooney before he anticipates anything involving his staff or says so publicly. There were reports at midseason by the NFL Network that the Steelers likely would purge their offensive coaches and Haley would be among them. Haley,

though, would seem to be secure in his job for a third season, for which he is under contract. There could be a coach or two, however, who is not. Tomlin never has fired an offensive coordinator. He has had just one defensive coordinator after Dick LeBeau stayed on his staff from Bill Cowherâ€™s staff. He has fired other assistants, though, including two special-teams coaches. Others could follow over the next few weeks. Tomlin said he has no timetable for making those decisions. As for whether linebackers coach Keith Butler is in line to replace LeBeau as defensive coordinator at some point, Tomlin said, â€œAgain, there is no plan in place specifically, and I wonâ€™t be talking about any personnel or staffing issues in great detail today.â€? Butler turned down an offer from the Colts after the 2011 season to become their defensive coordinator to stay with the Steelers. He long has been presumed to be LeBeauâ€™s successor. LeBeau said two weeks ago that he would like to continue coaching the Steelers defense. Several assistants left on their own accord last season to take other jobs.
Tomlin on officiating Tomlin, a member of the NFLâ€™s competition committee that helps shape the rules for the league, said he noticed as the play unfolded that San Diego was illegally aligned when Kansas City tried a 41-yard field goal Sunday night. The NFL acknowledged a penalty should have been called on that play, according to ESPN, and the Chiefs should then have been given a chance to kick what would have been the winning field goal from 36 yards. Had they made it, the Steelers would have made the playoffs. Tomlin said he has heard from the NFL about the officiating in that game. â€œI have received calls, texts and emails. Those guys do a great job of communicating during difficult times. I appreciate that. But it doesnâ€™t change what transpired.â€? Tomlin said that, as part of the competition committee, he looks forward to rolling up his sleeves and digging in to try to improve the officiating in the league. â€œObviously, there is a lot of work that needs to be done from an officiating standpoint.

I look forward to being part of the process of helping it improve.â€? Different kind of safety talk Cornerback Ike Taylor said Sunday there has been brief talk about him possibly moving to safety. â€œThat hasnâ€™t been discussed formally in any form or fashion,â€? Tomlin said. â€œIke and I talk about that from time to time because a lot of guys that have played his position have extended their careers in that manner, particularly guys that have the type of size that he has.â€?

ment to supporting those men and women who serves as members of the Guard and Reserve units throughout the county, recognizing their commitment to defending the freedoms that many of us take for granted. â€œThis is one of the counties with the most Guard and reserve centers in the state,â€? Simmons said. â€œItâ€™s wonderful how much this county does in support of veterans and their families.â€? â€œA person doesnâ€™t realize how quickly a person can change after experiencing combat,â€? shared president commissioner Douglas Lengenfelder, who served in the Air Force. â€œYou can change so quickly, you donâ€™t even notice it, and itâ€™s hard to come back from that, so I want to personally thank everyone in Cambria County who goes out of their way to assist veterans and helps them when they come back home.â€? Once again thanking county officials for their efforts, Simmons added that he hopes Cambria County will issue a letter of challenge to other counties around the state, pushing those entities to offer similar support.

Volunteer firefighters needed throughout countyâ€™s departments #)!! )"( (' #)!! % %#&&#"! (!"

The Allegheny Mountain Firefighters Initiative held a recruitment event on Dec. 21 in Altoona. Fire companies from Ashville, Blue Knob, Cresson, Dauntless, Gallitzin, Hastings, Hope, Jackson Township, Nanty Glo, Patton, Portage, Revloc, and Spangler spent the day speaking with people about the importance of becoming a volunteer firefighter. â€œWe had a number of people show interest for a number of fire companies,â€? offered John Kane, media and recruitment consultant for the Allegheny Mountain Firefighters Initiative, though, he added, the holidays made it more difficult for people to come out to the event. Kane explained that each fire company needs 10 new firefighters to be adequately staffed. Because these fire companies are manned by volunteers, many of the firefighters have full-time jobs
and are not readily available during the daylight hours. Kane said that if only three to five people respond to a fire, it presents a bit of a problem and creates dependency on other fire companies from surrounding communities. â€œTo become most effective, eight to 16 people need to respond to a fire to have the best chance of preventing property damage or saving a life.â€? Ideally, four firefighters should be on a hose line in order to safely attack a fire. â€œYou just canâ€™t do it with a small amount of people,â€? Kane added. At its peak, there were 300,000 volunteer firefighters across Pennsylvania. The most recent census has shown that those numbers have dropped to 70,000. That is why there are going to be many local and regional events throughout the next four years, so as to continue to raise awareness about the need for volunteer firefighters. â€œSo many think that it is somebody elseâ€™s problem,â€? Kane said,
â€œor they will say â€˜Iâ€™m too busy.â€™ I always respond with â€˜George Washington wasnâ€™t too busy.â€™ Washington bought the first fire engine for his home in Mount Vernon, Virginia. One thing that hasnâ€™t changed in 200 years is that we depend on friends and neighbors to take care of each other. If more people join, it eases the burden. â€œMany hands make light work,â€? Kane commented. Volunteers who train to be certified firefighters for any of these fire departments may qualify for up to $10,000 tuition reimbursement, basic health care, life insurance, free training, and more. If you have to miss a day of work due to training or need a babysitter to watch the kids while you are in training, you can be reimbursed for that, as well. Interested persons can go to www.becomeavolunteerfirefighte r.org to see which fire departments are involved or for more information. If you are interested
in joining, you should be at least 18 years old and physically able to do tasks such as lifting and crawling in full firefighting gear. You can contact your local fire department by phone, or use the site listed above to e-mail the fire company of your interest. Most
companies even have a Facebook page with all of their contact information. Better training makes clearing a fire more effective and safer. With more firefighters, the departments can be more efficient without hurting themselves in the process.

Vintondale native daughter honored by Dept. of Transportation

One of Vintondaleâ€™s native daughters has been recognized for her service to the federal government, in general, and the U.S. Department of Transportation, in particular. Catherine A. McCullough, daughter of Margie Jacobs Wilkinson and the late Master Sgt. Clair Wilkinson (U.S. Army Retired) of Vintondale, was honored with the departmentâ€™s Gold Medal for Outstanding Achievement. The countryâ€™s 16th secretary of transportation, Ray LaHood, presented Catherine the award in a ceremony at DOT headquarters in November 2012. The award is the DOTâ€™s highest award and recognizes outstanding leadership and service that is distinguished by achievements of marked national or international significance â€” achievements that reflect well on both the DOT and the federal government. Catherine has worked nearly 50 years with the federal government, serving in public relations for the secretary of transportation and in many areas dealing with vehicle safety and injury prevention. She is a member of the Nanty-Glo Vintondale Class of 1965 and, after working two years for the Federal Aviation Administration, joined the DOT when it was established in 1967. While working full time, she pursued her college education and

holds a Bachelor of Science degree, cum laude, in business from the University of Maryland and a Master of Business Administration from Central Michigan University. She and her husband, Vincent,
reside in Chantilly, Virginia. The DOT employs approximately 10,000 people, and the departmentâ€™s Gold Award is bestowed on only a handful of employees each year. Catherine is both proud and
humbled to be numbered among the awardâ€™s recipients. â€œThe knowledge that my work â€˜caught the eyeâ€™ of a cabinet officer who felt that my work deserved this recognition was both gratifying and humbling,â€? she wrote in an email. â€œIâ€™ve always been proud to be a federal worker serving my country and working to make a difference. â€œI like to think that I am following in my dadâ€™s footsteps in this regard. He was always proud to be a soldier serving his county. This award tells me that I have accomplished my goal.â€? Catherine continued as she thought about the award and about her father. â€œI like to think that my dad is smiling down on me and saying, â€˜Good job, Kid!â€™ â€” like he would say after any of my accomplishments when he was still living. That, to me, makes this award really special.â€? As a longtime DOT employee, Catherine has seen many changes, not the least of which are the tools she used and now uses to do her job. In a feature article in the Department of Transportation Newsletter, Catherine summarizes a few of the changes she has witnessed during her long tenure. An excerpt of the article follows: â€œMcCullough started out working as a secretary at the FAA in 1965, where she also took shorthand and used a manual typewriter. She
joined DOT in March 1967 as part of the â€˜start-up teamâ€™ in the Office of the Secretary and was given an electric typewriter shortly thereafter. â€˜Personal computers were unheard of and when a word processor appeared, we stood in line to use it, although it was mostly used for form letters,â€™ she said.â€? In her most recent assignment, Catherine has been instrumental in the establishment and maintenance of the Crash Injury Research and Engineering Network. CIRENâ€™s origin is rooted in a recommendation from the National Academy of Sciences in the 1985 publication â€œInjury in America.â€? Among the bookâ€™s recommendations was to have injury cooperatively studied by a multidisciplinary group comprised of subject-matter experts from the fields of engineering and medicine, as well as from other appropriate professions. CIREN was established in 1996, and Catherine has played a key role in the programâ€™s evolution and refinement. She has consistently served as the contract technical manager of all cooperative agreements with various Level 1 trauma centers or engineering laboratories. The mission of the CIREN is to improve the prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation of motor vehicle crash injuries with the attendant goal of reducing deaths, disabilities, and costs â€” both human and economic.
