The speech was the first in the Mount’s spring speaker series centered around the theme “The Common Good: Citizens in the 21st Century.� Mount Aloysius president Tom Foley made some opening remarks before introducing the Ross as the keynote. Foley spoke about the relevance of Martin Luther King Jr.’s beliefs in today’s society, noting that his famous “I Have a Dream� speech has been reprinted and replayed millions of times since the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s. “It’s a very personal message, but it’s also a very global message,� Foley said. “The fundamental idea that injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.� Foley also thanked Mount Aloysius students who have carried out the teachings of MLK by participating in service projects throughout the year. “Thank you all for living out Dr. King’s legacy so well and so often,� Foley said. Foley then introduced Ross, stating that he had come from a tough background, but was able to overcome his struggles. “Tony Ross, we thank you for bringing your passion and compassion to Mount Aloysius,� Foley said. During his address, Ross commended the college for centering the speaker series around a central theme, adding that the topic of citiSEE MLK, PAGE 5

Burns invites local governments, organizations to grant seminar PAGE 2 - Thursday, January 30, 2014 - MAINLINE EXTRA

By Jim Lauffer

of Mainline Newspapers

Finances at every level of government are tight; however, grants continue to be available, though sifting through the bureaucracy to find them, and then apply for them, can be challenging. State Rep. Frank Burns, D-Cambria / Somerset, will hold a seminar to help municipalities and municipal organizations

find their way through the grantfinding maze. Burns will host an information session for local municipalities and area organizations — such as historical and recreation groups — to learn about grant opportunities that might be available to them. The seminar will be held from 8:30 a.m. to noon Thursday, Feb. 20, at the Ebensburg Borough Building, 300 W. High Street.

State unemployment rate drops to 6.9 percent in December

MAINLINE EXTRA - Thursday, January 30, 2014 - PAGE 3

Pennsylvania’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate declined by fourtenths of a percentage point in December to 6.9 percent. This was the first time in nearly five years (January 2009) that the rate was below seven percent, and it was the largest one-month decline since July 1983. The unemployment rate was down by one percentage point from December 2012.

Pennsylvania’s civilian labor force — the number of people working or looking for work — was down 15,000 in December to 6,443,000. Resident employment was up 12,000 to 6,000,000, and the number of unemployed residents fell 27,000 to 443,000. Pennsylvania’s labor force was down by 92,000 over the year with declines in both employment (-16,000) and unemployment (-76,000).

Total nonfarm jobs fell by 11,400 in December to 5,761,600. Eight of the 11 supersectors declined, causing drops in both goods-producing (-7,500) and service-providing (-3,900) industries. The largest declines were in education and health services (-9,600) and construction (-7,000). Trade, transportation and utilities, up 8,100 from November, had the largest gain of any supersector for the second month in a row.

Over the year, total nonfarm jobs in Pennsylvania were up 19,000 (+0.3%). The growth was primarily within private service-providing industries. The largest gains were in leisure and hospitality (+13,200), professional and business services (+11,900), and trade, transportation and utilities (+8,000). The above data are seasonally adjusted. Seasonally adjusted data provide the most valid month-to-month comparison.

SAMA-Loretto to host student art exhibition during February PAGE 4 - Thursday, January 30, 2014 - MAINLINE EXTRA

By Jim Lauffer

of Mainline Newspapers

During a time when art programs in schools are being de-emphasized or, worse, eliminated, the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art will once again demonstrate its commitment to the works of student-artists by hosting the Artists of the 21st Century, the museum’s annual student art exhibition. SAMA-Loretto will feature works created by students from Friday, Feb. 7, through Saturday, April 12. Schools in Bedford, Blair, Cambria, and Somerset counties will be featured in the Loretto exhibition. The following schools from the Mainline Area that will be represented in the exhibition: Blacklick Valley Elementary Center; Blacklick Valley Junior-Senior High School; Cambria Heights Elementary School; Forest Hills Middle School; Forest Hills High Schools; Jackson Elementary School; Penn Cambria primary, intermediate, middle and high schools; Portage Area Elementary School; Portage Area High Schools; and St. Michael School. Each school district is permitted to

submit up to 20 individual projects and one group project. SAMA-Loretto will hold an opening reception to celebrate the exhibition and the region’s student-artists from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 15. The reception is open to the public, but the museum suggests a donation of $1 per person to support the exhibition. SAMA-Ligonier Valley will hold its Artists of the 21st Century from Feb. 21 through April 17 and will feature works of students from Westmoreland and Fayette counties. The works of more than 300 students will be shown at the two exhibitions. The Artists of the 21st Century exhibit is now in its 16th year. “This exhibition has become a favorite of mine,� SAMA education coordinator Jessica Campbell said in a press release. “Unpacking, arranging, and hanging the art is like going on an adventure. “It’s exciting to see what each school is creating and to see the pride and accomplishment in the faces of the students,� she continued. “It’s so encouraging to attend the opening receptions, which are always crowded and filled with joy as each student looks to find

their masterpiece. “I welcome everyone to come out and see the priceless works of art created by the talented youth in our area,� Jessica concluded. The Artists of the 21st Century exhibition is held in conjunction with National Youth Art Month and the State Arts-in-Education Month and is open to schools that participate in SAMA’s Museum / School Partnership Program.

  



    

       

        

        





          

        



Through the program, SAMA artist-educators travel to public and parochial schools to provide Arts-in-Education programs designed to enhance students’ understanding of art creation, technique, history, criticism, and aesthetics. The partnership program is not only an award-winning program, but is also the largest program of its kind in the Pennsylvania.

Each of the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art’s four locations — Altoona, Johnstown, Ligonier Valley and Loretto — is open to the public free of charge. SAMA-Loretto’s operating hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday.

zenship in the 21st century is very relateable to MLK’s teachings and beliefs. The debate over the role of citizenship is evolving,� Ross said. “Today’s gathering is another example of the timelessness of the idea of citizenship.� Ross then gave examples connecting MLK’s beliefs with the central idea of the address. “The King holiday is the only day coordinated to outline the power of the concept of citizenship,� Ross said. “Citizenship is more powerful than segregation or Jim Crowe.� Ross stated that the idea of citizenship allowed King to dream, and to come up with a better view of the world. “Our collective responsibility is to work toward Dr. King’s vision of the world. Young people change the world, and your time is now,� said Ross. “Change comes through continuous struggle, and any aspect of life is rooted in the genius and activism of young people. Your time is now.� Ross then spoke about the influence of other African Americans who represent the idea of citizenship, including the founder of OIC of America, Leon Sullivan. He was born seven years before MLK, and was ordained a Baptist minister at the age of 18. Sullivan went on to begin a selective patronage organization in Philadelphia as a young man in his 30s. “Here is a minister who had the vision to take an abandoned jailhouse and turn it into a center for opportunities for people in the town,� Ross said. Sullivan was personal friends with both Martin Luther King Jr. and Nelson Mandela. Ross showed a video of Mandela speaking about the impact of Sullivan’s principles on the world. “I am humbled today to stand on the shoulders of Dr. Sullivan as CEO of OIC,� Ross said. Ross then told his personal story about growing up with a single mother, in a tough urban area in Philadelphia. “It is this ever evolving concept of citizenship that allowed my mother to improve the quality of her life and change the trajectory of her children’s lives,� Ross said. I’m so thankful for those who worked to expand the meaning of citizenship to everyone.� Ross said that it was that same idea that inspired him to use his professional career to advance the common good, and is accomplishing his

goals through his work at United Way and then OICA. Ross ended his address by encouraging everyone to strive for the evolvement of citizenship, and the advancement of the common good. “Let us develop a kind of dangerous unselfishness as we strive to

promote citizenship in the 21st century,� Ross said. After his address, Ross held a question and answer session with member of the audience during which he explained the mission and goals of OICA. Located in Philadelphia, OIC of

WPSU’s ‘Our Town’ series set to return to Ebensburg area PAGE 6 - Thursday, January 30, 2014 - MAINLINE EXTRA

WPSU recently announced its “Our Town� projects for 2014, and the Borough of Ebensburg is among the five communities that will be showcased this season. The others were Brookville, Smethport, Tyrone, and Windber. This will be the show’s second go-’round in Ebensburg. “We first visited in August 2002 and thought Ebensburg was due for another visit,� said Whitney Chirdon, producer and director of “Our Town.� The show is in its planning stage, but Whitney is looking to build a small group of locals to help with the project. “I’m currently trying to round up a small group to help

me plan the Ebensburg show,� she continued. “I would be looking to this group to help me determine dates and locations for meetings and events, and also ideas for the best ways to get people involved in the project.� WPSU developed the “Our Town� project to involve communities and their residents with WPSU-TV, giving them the opportunity to tell their town’s story and to help document the people, the places, the happenings, and the history of the town. The series’ intent is to treat viewers to the many and the various personalities, perspectives, and possibilities that local towns have to offer. Previous programs have featured the Mainline communities

Cresson, Nanty Glo, Portage, and, of course, Ebensburg. “I was hoping to visit Ebensburg in the next couple of weeks to meet with a small group to work out all of the details — the date and location of the community meeting — to look at some potential locations for the interview video shoot, and to talk about the best ways to get the community excited about the project,� Whitney added. Regarding a timeline for the “Our Town: Ebensburg� program, Whitney said, “We’d look to film our interviews in mid-to-late March and broadcast the program in May on WPSU.� For additional information about the “Our Town� program, you can

Severe wintery weather conditions can create challenges for everyone, especially those whose job requires them to work outside in the elements. Postal letter carriers are among those who brave the snow, ice, sleet, and freezing rain to provide service to the community. Letter carriers can be the first to visit someone’s home before snow removal or salting begins. That’s why area residents have been asked by local postmasters to include the regular upkeep of residential mailboxes as part of any snow and ice removal routine.

Maintaining a clear path to the mailbox — including steps, porches, walkways and street approach — will help letter carriers get those cards and packages delivered in a safe and timely manner. Residents receiving curbside delivery should remove snow piles left by snow plows to keep access to their mailboxes clear. It is important to note that friends and neighbors will also benefit from clear sidewalks and walkways as they travel to school, go to work, and attempt to shop at nearby businesses. And don’t forget the physi-

cal, emotional, and potential financial toll on anyone who slips, trips, or falls in the snow or on the ice. Taking the time and making the effort to keep walkways, steps, and mailboxes clear of snow and ice will help your letter carrier deliver the mail, prevent injuries, and help make you a good neighbor in our community.

The Columbia Pipeline Group recently awarded the Saint Francis University Science Outreach Center a $30,000 contribution for its Rural Outreach Chemistry for Kids program. These funds allow the university to emphasize pipeline safety through its R.O.C.K. program. Traditionally, the R.O.C.K. program (www.francis.edu/rock) has allowed Saint Francis students share their love of chemistry through experiments in local K-12 schools in Cambria, Blair, Bedford, Clearfield, and Somerset counties, occasionally crossing into additional counties. The program was founded 1995 by Dr. Edward P. Zovinka, SFU Professor of Chemistry, and the American Chemical Society-Student Affiliates (Chemistry Club). As a result of this contribution from the Columbia Pipeline Group, the R.O.C.K. program will be able to expand that mission to provide new pipeline safety activities in K12 schools as well as to develop new activities in other Science, Technology, Engineering and Math

(STEM) disciplines. To kick off the expanded STEM-focused programming, Dr. Zovinka is teaming up with Dr. Rachel Wagner, SFU Assistant Professor of Engineering, and Melissa Greiner, the Science Outreach Center Program Coordinator, to revise the curriculum to offer new environmental engineering outreach activities. “The donation by the Columbia Pipeline Group is greatly appreciated! The donation provides a great opportunity for the ROCK program to involve more SFU students and expand our menu of events. With

the donation and K-12 partners, we will increase our efforts to show the relevance of science, technology, engineering and mathematics to K12 students in our region,� explained Dr. Zokinka The Columbia Pipeline Group became aware of the of the program after learning of the Energy and Marcellus Shale Gas Workshop hosted at the University in April 2013. “We were very impressed with St. Francis University’s focus on energy production within the framework of environmental stewardship. We are also excited to see a

vibrant STEM-education outreach effort happening though the R.O.C.K. program. We felt that the hands-on, K-12 school-based outreach program aligned with our pipeline safety education efforts as well as our efforts to promote STEM education,� said Carmella

King, public awareness and communications manager for the Columbia Pipeline Group. Companies such as the Columbia Pipeline Group are funding efforts within the school system to encourage more students to think about careers in STEM fields.

Portage VFC establishes warming station By Amanda Petrunak of Mainline Newspapers

Councilman George Wozniak first approached the Portage Fire Company a few weeks ago to discuss the possibility of creating a warming station at the Portage Fire Hall. Fire Chief Jamie Miller thought the idea was a great way to help out the community during these severe winter months. With the blustery, cold weather, there are many people who are in need of shelter. After discussing the warming station with Wozniak, the firefighters decided to create the station in their social room, where they can serve hot chocolate, coffee, and tea. Anyone is welcome to use the station. The firefighters opened the station last week when the weather turned for the worse. As of right now, the station will be open until Thursday, unless the weather continues to persist. “We have not had anyone use the station to stay the night, but a few people did drop by for a warm drink. We encourage anyone in the community to come on out,� said Miller. The station is constantly being monitored by fire staff; there is always someone on guard. The fire company is providing warm drinks, but they do not have blanSEE WARMING, PAGE 13

High-flying Broncos will face stingy Seahawks in Super Bowl matchup Look for us on Facebook!

By Sam Spiegelman XN Sports

Super Bowl XLVIII will feature a classic bout between the NFL’s top-scoring offense against its top-scoring defense, and a rare clash between the No. 1 seeds from each respective conference. Peyton Manning will be appearing in his third Super Bowl, entering the game with a 1-1 mark. It’s no surprise that

yet again he’ll be bringing in the record-setting Denver Broncos offense with him. But perhaps this year Manning has had his best collection of weapons, with Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker split wide, Wes Welker in the slot, Julius Thomas at tight end and the tandem of Knowshon Moreno and Montee Ball lined up in the backfield. The Broncos scored 606 points in 2013. Manning threw for 55 passing touchdown and four dif-

ferent receivers caught 10 or more touchdowns. Those are Madden-like numbers. And they haven’t teetered a bit in the playoffs, as the future Hall of Famer threw for 400 yards and a pair of touchdowns against the New England Patriots to make it to the big game. The thing about Denver is their versatility. The team ranked second in the league in pass plays SEE SUPER, PAGE 17

Heights, NC okay Coal Bowl; schools now wait on D6 approval PAGE 12 -Thursday, January 30, 2014 - MAINLINE EXTRA

By Megan Riner

of Mainline Newspapers

The Coal Bowl is the football game that both the Cambria Heights and Northern Cambria school districts look forward to every year. The two longtime rivals battle it out on the gridiron for the glory, for the bragging rights and, most importantly, for the coal bucket to be brought home to their school. That rivalry was threatened this past November, when Heights was informed it could no longer schedule games with schools outside of its conference. But it wasn’t even a month after what was to be the final game was played when Dennis Pawlikowski asked the Northern Cambria School Board to look into the possibility of playing an 11th game with Cambria Heights at the end of the season. Jim Yeager, the athletic director at Northern Cambria, spoke

with the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association, who affirmed that there is no problem with the schools playing an 11th or even a 12th game. The only stipulation is that, if either team is in the playoffs, the Coal Bowl has to be postponed until the next year that neither school is in the playoffs. After discussions with the athletic directors from both schools, the fate of the Coal Bowl looks to be promising. The Cambria Heights board voted in favor of having an 11th game; now both schools will have to gain approval of the District 6 Committee. Yeager is confident that this shouldn’t be a problem, especially with the influence of Cambria Heights Middle School principal David Caldwell, who is a member of the District 6 committee. If the committee should refuse to allow the 11th game, the schools can appeal directly to the PIAA. A PIAA official who talked with Yeager said he saw no reason not to have the game. The athletics and extracurricular activities committee began to discuss possible dates for the

2014 Coal Bowl at the meeting on Monday, Jan. 20. It was suggested that the two teams play a holiday game around Thanksgiving. The general consensus was that waiting until Thanksgiving was awfully late. Veterans Day was another possibility that the board considered. The committee then discussed the amount of time that would be needed to inform the community if there was going to be a game or not, since most schools don’t know for sure if they are heading into the playoffs until the 10th week of the season. It was decided, since news travels fast, one week would be enough of a notice to cancel the game. But if the kids have a losing season, would they even want to prolong their season for an 11th game? “Football is a grind,� Mike Hogan informed the committee. He continued saying that yes, the adults want the rivalry, and yes, it is a payday since the game brings in money for both schools and communities, but in the end it’s about the kids. “Don’t forget about the kids who put the pads on everyday,� he said. Pawlikowski, who is also a

Portage discusses possibilities for drive-in sign

MAINLINE EXTRA - Thursday, January 30, 2014 - PAGE 13

By Amanda Petrunak of Mainline Newspapers

Friday, Jan. 24, the Portage Township supervisors and the Bar Ann Drive-In manager Dustin Grush met with Cambria County judge Patrick Kiniry to discuss the drive-in signâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s location. Both partiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; attorneys were present, and the judge decided to speak with each party individually to hear both sides out equally and fairly. Both the drive-in manager and township supervisors agreed that they would like to work this situation out, instead of closing down the drive-in completely. The drive-in has been around for nearly 60 years, and the sign has sat in the right-of-way for several years until a complaint

arose from one of the neighbors in the community. Currently, both parties are looking into moving the sign to one of the sides of the right-of-way. The only situation holding them back is the fact that PennDOT and Portage Township jointly own the right-of-way. The township needs PennDOTâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s approval before the sign can even be touched. The township supervisors have addressed in the past that they must take care of the concerns of the community. They never wanted to close the drive-in; they simply wanted to remove the sign from the right-of-way so it would no longer be a hazard to the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am very optimistic that we can come to compromise with 0*/  0% #0'(2

this sign after Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting,â&#x20AC;? reported Rick Olshavsky, township supervisor. Olshavsky went on to add that the townshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attorney, along with the driveinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attorney, are still checking into the liability issue, as well. At the last township meeting, Grush discussed putting the township on the drive-inâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s policy. This notion is still being discussed to see if it could be a possible solution. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There needs to be enough coverage to protect both the drive-in

and ourselves,â&#x20AC;? said Olshavsky. After many months of going back and forth between both parties, there are rational ideas being put down on the table. Both sides are willing to discuss different situations and scenarios. Within the next couple of weeks, the judge, along with the attorneys, will see if the drive-in sign can be moved to one of the sides of the right-of-way. At this time, both parties are looking for answers.

Education leaders call on government to support all schools PAGE 14 - Thursday, January 30, 2014 - MAINLINE EXTRA

Fair, predictable school funding options have not been used since 1991 The leaders of Pennsylvaniaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s major statewide school leadership organizations are calling on the legislature to move swiftly to pass House Bill 1738, now in the Senate, and begin the process of establishing a fair, predictable way of providing adequate funding for education in all communities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pennsylvania must treat public education as a bipartisan issue that has benefits for all children, regardless of where they live and attend school in this Commonwealth,â&#x20AC;? said Jim Buckheit, Executive Director of the Pennsylvania Association of School Administrators. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had a fair, predictable way of funding education since 1991. It limits our childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s futures and it has hurt our stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

economy.â&#x20AC;? Support for changing the way state education funds are distributed is building. Earlier this week, Governor Tom Corbett said he agreed that school funding systems should be changed to â&#x20AC;&#x153;a true funding systemâ&#x20AC;? that is fair to all schools. The governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s statement came on the heels of Representative Bernie Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Neilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bill to create a Basic Education Funding Commission being referred to the State Senate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In many parts of our state, school funding is not keeping pace with education needs and any increase needs to be distributed in a consistent way. District leaders cannot make the best decisions for schools and student without knowing what basic

education funding will be,â&#x20AC;? said Nathan Mains, PSBA Executive Director. Pennsylvaniaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s education leadership organizations â&#x20AC;&#x201D; PASA, Pennsylvania School Boards Association, Pennsylvania Association of School Business Officers, Pennsylvania Association of Rural and Small Schools, and the Central Pennsylvania Education Coalition â&#x20AC;&#x201D; have joined in an effort to urge lawmakers to fix the finance disparities that have seriously undermined the mission of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public schools. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Geography should not determine a childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s destiny and a communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic future,â&#x20AC;? said Joseph Bard, PARSS Executive Director. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every child has a right to a great education and every com-

munity needs support to develop the talents of its youth in order to ensure a vibrant future. We can no longer afford to pit communities against one another for basic education funding.â&#x20AC;? Except for the three-year period from 2009-2011 when education funding was based on the number of students and the additional cost to educate certain types of students, Pennsylvania has not allocated its basic state funding to public schools through a predictable, fair funding formula since 1991. There is a better way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All of Pennsylvania needs a funding formula that does not discriminate, but sustains a complete education for all students,â&#x20AC;? said Dr. J. Hugh Dwyer, head of the Central PA Public School Coalition.

Various charitable donations can impact tax deductions People make charitable donations for various reasons. Some are motivated by a desire to give back to their communities, while others may be inspired by a particular cause whether that cause is based down the street or across the globe. Network for Good, an organization that helps nonprofits connect with prospective donors, says 89 percent of American households give to charity. Gifts average 3.2 percent of household income, or roughly $1,620 annually, and oftentimes such donations are tax deductible. The United States Internal Revenue Service is tasked with overseeing tax-related issues. In-depth information regarding applicable tax deductions can be found on its website, www.irs.gov. Individuals also consult with a qualified accountant should they have any questions regarding charitable donations and deductions. In addition, there are some guidelines for donors to follow when making donations and claiming tax deductions. â&#x20AC;˘ Recognize that only charita-

ble contributions made in the calendar year are potentially eligible to be claimed as deductions. For example, only those donations made between Jan. 1, 2013, and Dec. 31, 2013, can be claimed on your 2013 tax returns (filed in 2014). Therefore, if you're hoping to deduct donations as soon as possible, do your giving before the end of the calendar year. â&#x20AC;˘ The United States also requires donations be given to a qualified organization for donors to earn a deduction. You cannot deduct contributions made to specific individuals or political candidates and organizations. In general, trusts, foundations, war veteran's organizations, domestic fraternal societies, churches, nonprofit charitable organizations, volunteer fire companies, and medical research organizations are considered qualified organizations. â&#x20AC;˘ Americans also may be able to deduct contributions to certain Canadian charitable organizations covered under an income tax treaty with Canada. But such deductions are typical-

ly reserved for those donors who generate income from sources in Canada. Consult with an accountant concerning contributions outside of the United States. â&#x20AC;˘ Fair market value is used to determine the value of clothing or other nonfinancial donations. The CRA defines gifts as goods, securities and land. Special rules may apply to vehicle donations. â&#x20AC;˘ It is important to keep receipts for all charitable donations. This helps verify the donation and can be beneficial should donors be audited down the road. The receipt should list your name, address, the charity's registration number, the value of

the donation and additional pertinent information. â&#x20AC;˘ Donors must file Form 1040 and itemize deductions on Schedule A when deducting

charitable donations. Donors can make the most of their good deeds by keeping good records and selecting approved charities before filing their tax returns.

of 20 yards or more, trailing only the Philadelphia Eagles. The team attempted the secondmost passing attempts per game (42.2), but also ranked 11th in rushing attempts (28.8), which resulted in a 117.1 yards-pergame average, good for 15th in the league. But perhaps Manning and Co. are finally going to meet their match in the form of the Seattle defense, the Legion of Boom. Manning owned an NFL-best 87.0 QBR against four of fewer pass rushers, which is Seattleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s style, while the Hawks held opposing signal-callers to a 31.8 QBR, the best mark in the league. Captaining that unit is Richard Sherman, who, besides getting Miley Cyrus-like attention for his post-game comments following the NFC Championship game, actually led the NFL in interceptions. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s flanked by All-Pro safety Earl Thomas III and a host of pass rushers, including Michael Bennett, Cliff Avril and Chris Clemons. Seattle held opponents to a league-low 272.6 yards per game and forced a league-high 28 interceptions. It tied for eighth with 44 sacks on the season. and forced 17 fumbles. Defense has won the No. 1 offense vs. No. 1 defense showdown in the four previous meetings, with the lone exception being the San Francisco 49ersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; triumph past ... the Broncos, of course ... back in 1989. But while the Broncos offense and Seahawks defense will grab the majority headlines, how will the other units play a factor? The Denver defense doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get too much credit, and it was all but forgotten about as soon as Von Miller was lost for the season. But since the Broncos fell to the San Diego Chargers

Week 15, the team has allowed 15 points per game and 269 total yards per game. However, the team did allow 320 yards to New England and forced three turnovers in its past four games, none in the previous two. On the opposite end, Russell Wilson will be the sixth quarterback to reach the Super Bowl in his first or second season. The previous five went 3-2, with the wins coming from Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger and Kurt Warner. Wilson began his sophomore campaign red hot, but the Seattle offense has dwindled down the stretch. Wilson enters the game averaging 159 passing yards per game, the fourthfewest over the past two decades. Perhaps an encouraging note, though, is the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hawks churned out their highest yardage total in four games against a stingy â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Niners defense, and their totals have increased each of the past four weeks. In addition, the offense will get a boost from Percy Harvin, who returned to practice this week. Harvin has not had a major impact in either of the two games he has appeared in this season, but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s touched the ball a total of four times and has 30 yards to show for it. Not too shabby. And with a game like this, how could special teams not play a role. Perhaps Harvin adds a newfound element for Seattle, or perhaps its Trinton Holliday on the Broncos side. One key stat to remember: Seattle has allowed all of 82 punt return yards on the season (thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overall). Defense tends to outshine offense in these types of games, and with the elements that may be involved playing outdoors at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, perhaps the strong rushing attack of Marshawn Lynch and a few third-down conversions by Wilson is enough for Seattle to get ahead, allowing its defense to hold off Manning.

NCABA discusses possible future as memberships dwindle PAGE 18 - Thursday, January 30, 2014 - MAINLINE EXTRA

By Megan Riner

of Mainline Newspapers

The goal of the Northern Cambria Area Business Alliance seems pretty clear: to link all the communities in northern Cambria County with local, regional, state, and federal leaders, and to strive to make the region the best it can be through education, development, and networking. A nonprofit organization, the NCABA is dedicated to servicing the region through coordinated activities directed at creating employment opportunities and providing access for enhancing community development. But at the Jan. 23 meeting, NCABA officers questioned its existence as an organization, and whether or not they needed to reinvent what it is that the alliance does. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to do something,â&#x20AC;? NCABA president Charles Contres said. Several years ago, membership in the NCABA totaled 125. It has significantly dropped over the years; there are 29 paid members at the beginning of this year. But Jeff Lantzy is not so concerned with the drop in membership as long as those members are actively participating. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Active mem-

bers are what I want to see,â&#x20AC;? Lantzy stated. Ernest Sekerak talked about how beneficial joining the NCABA has been for him, most importantly meeting people and networking. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I get a lot out of it,â&#x20AC;? he offered. During the meeting, the officers reflected on their past community events and mixers and planned future festivities, including the Big Kahuna Golf Open which

will take place this summer. Unfortunately, the NCABA had to cancel its wine-fest, but it is working with the Veteranâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memorial Ambulance to help get baskets for its basket raffle. They briefly touched on the redistricting of the region and how that might affect the area, as well as the Cambria County Planning Commissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plans for route 219. They also discussed what the NCABA could do to

help support Rock Runâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inaugural ATV Summer Blast, since the ATV park brings tourism from all over the nation into the region. In 2003, a group of concerned citizens created the NCABA to promote intra-municipal development, an organization that could focus on local economical development and progress, something the area lacked. It seeks to help the growth of the area and increase the opportunity for exist-

ing businesses to grow as well. For more information about the NCABA check out the website http://ncaba-pa.org or email info@ncaba-pa.org. Meetings are held quarterly and anyone who is interested is welcome to attend, member or not. The next meeting will be held April 17 at 8 a.m. on the first floor of X-Treme fitness across from the liquor store in Northern Cambria.

March for Life

The weather was frigid, but that didn’t stop Saint Francis University Pro-Life supporters from conducting their own March for Life in Loretto on the 41st anniversary of Roe v. Wade. The landmark decision made by the United States Supreme Court overrode many state and federal restrictions on abortion in the United States. Since that time, in the United States, there have been roughly 1.21 million abortions per year, roughly 3,300 abortions per day. The campus event began with a short prayer. The march took place around the mall in the center of campus and concluded with a Mass to pray for the unborn and the dignity of life. The event was sponsored by the university’s campus ministry department. Submitted photo.
