Ebensburg Borough paving project underway
By Gina Bianucci
of Mainline Newspapers
The Ebensburg Borough Council heard news regarding the end of the ongoing sewer project and the resolution to the paving project mixup at its Sept. 23 meeting. Council member Dave Kuhar, who is on the wastewater committee, said that all the work on the sewer mains and laterals is done and testing has been completed in all but one manhole. A walk-through inspection began Sept. 18 and Sippel Development, the sewer project contractor, has a punch list of a few remaining items to complete. Earlier in the month, there was confusion between Sippel and paving contractor Quaker Sales on whether Quaker was to do the top coat paving on the south side of town, or when they were supposed to arrive. A joint meeting between the contractors was held Sept. 19, where it was decided that Quaker would begin top coating the north side of town Sept. 25. The sewerrelated street repairs were to take between seven to 10 days to complete. Council president Doug Tusing asked if Quaker Sales was going to pave the south side of town and complete base repairs simultaneously. Borough manager Dan Penatzer said that Sippel is continuing to finish the base work, and that Quaker was to start the top coat and do some milling on the north side of town by Sept. 25.
No additional work was planned for the south side of town until Oct. 2. By Oct. 2, Quaker is to begin curb-to-curb milling on the south side. â€œThey seem to make pretty good progress [but] I donâ€™t know if they [Sippel] will be done this week with all of [this work],â€? Penatzer said. Tusing also asked how the council will ensure that the work will be done if Quaker were to not show up when scheduled. Penazter said that he expects them to be on the job site and that the weather is only thing that could delay them. As of the meeting, he said there hadnâ€™t been any rain that would interfere with their job and that he would be surprised if they SEE PAVING, PAGE 4

Commissioners recognize libraries PAGE 2 - Thursday, October 3, 2019 - MAINLINE EXTRA
By Ron Portash
of Mainline Newspapers
In honor of September being Library Card Sign-up Month, the Cambria County Commissioners held their Sept. 26 meeting at the Portage Public Library. Ashley Flynn, director of the Cambria County Library System thanked the commissioners for their support of the library system within the county. The 14 libraries in Cambria County are part of a federated library system where each library maintains its independence with its own operating board. This enables the libraries in Cambria County to share county funds and provide better local services. Portage Public Library director Kaytlin Sumner expressed her appreciation for the commissionersâ€™ work promoting the county library system. Sumner said that the Portage Public Library is expanding with â€œlots of cool new programs to engage all ages.â€? Pa. CareerLink now comes to the Portage Library once a month, and Sumner said she hopes to expand the number of the days they visit. Pa. CareerLink visits the library to assist local resi-
dents in employment search, resume help and unemployment information. Pa. CareerLinkâ€™s main office recently moved to the Cambria County Library in downtown Johnstown. During the public comment portion of the meeting, community advocate John DeBartola informed the commissioners that he is filing preliminary objections in a lawsuit he brought against district attorney Kelly Callihan. DeBartola believes Callihan withheld information on a right-to-know request he filed. DeBartola also requested the commissioners provide him with information concerning the salary of the newly hired general manager of the Cambria County War Memorial. The War Memorial Board is the authority that hired a management company, SMG, to operate the events at the arena. The commissioners do not respond to public comment. Moving onto the agenda, the commissioners adopted an ordinance that would expand the Local Economic Revitalization Tax Assistance Act (LERTA) to cover a major portion of the Moxham section of Johnstown. LERTA is a program created by
the state legislature to provide property tax assistance in the form of reduced property taxes for qualified businesses to move into or expand when located in a LERTA area. The LERTA tax break covers a reduced property tax rate for a 10-year period. The LERTA ordinance must be approved by the three governing agencies involved in setting and collection of property tax rates: the county commissioners, the school district and the local municipality. In other matters, the commissioners approved an agreement with Wessel and Company to provide forensic auditing services to the Cambria County Area Agency on Aging. According to agency administrator M. Veil Griffith, the forensic auditing services are needed more than ever to assist local senior citizens who have become victims of financial fraud or theft. Griffith said that her agency has been receiving more reports of drugaddicted relatives stealing money from older family members. A forensic audit is needed to refer the allegations of theft for criminal prosecution by law enforcement.

County redevelopment authority holds Act 152 blight seminar
By Jack Thompson
of Mainline Newspapers
On Wednesday, Sept. 25, the Redevelopment Authority of Cambria County (CCRA) held an Act 152 seminar for local municipalities, nonprofits and other organizations that could potentially benefit from funding made available through the act. Cambria County was one of the first counties in the state to opt in to the provision provided by Act 152, which is a bill allowing counties to collect money to remove blighted properties. The seminar was open to the public and free to attend, but most in attendance were council members, township supervisors and representatives for organizations like the Northern Cambria Public Library. On Jan. 26, 2017, the Cambria County Commissioners voted to opt in to the act. Act 152 allows the county to collect a $15 fee on certain types of deed and mortgage transfers. The money from those transfers goes into a designated demolition fund. The money is then used to help county groups rid areas of blighted buildings. One example the commissioners are particularly proud about is the recent demolition of the old shirt factory in Northern Cambria. The factory sat unused and out of taxation for decades but was finally demolished through collaboration with the Northern Cambria Borough and the CCRA. The building had caused injury and upset in the borough for years. About $25,000 of the demolition bills were paid for by Act 152 funds. â€œThe county never had a focused plan to deal with blight,â€? said president commissioner Tom Chernisky at the Sept. 25 meeting. â€œIâ€™m very thankful the CCRA will have these conferences at least once or twice a year so our countyâ€™s leaders know what options are available to help them deal with blight. These projects are only possible through total collaboration. Itâ€™s okay that we disagree, but we work together to get rid of these
properties.â€? Chernisky also commented that one primary goal was to get unused properties back into taxation. The talk on Sept. 25 was led by CCRA director Renee Daly and was approximately an hour long, plus a question and answer session. Daly covered the process of applying for the money, who qualifies and what to expect during the process. The program is estimated to help with the demolition of seven to 10 properties per year. â€œWe all know what blight is to see it. We have a loose definition, but we all know what it looks like,â€? said Daly. Buildings that are uninhabitable, have not received utilities for more than six months, are falling in or are otherwise ramshackle qualify as blighted buildings. Many counties, including our neighbor Blair County, chose to reduce the collection from $15 per transfer to as little as $7.50, greatly limiting how much help their relevant authorities can deal out to their counties. The Cambria County Commissioners chose to use the $15 figure instead, which brings in about $100,000 for demolitions per year. Local municipalities, non-profits, authorities, community development corporations and similar groups are able to apply for the funds using a one-page application available from the CCRA. Submissions are allowed prior to the purchase of a property, meaning municipalities can hold off on purchasing lots they donâ€™t want until they know they are going to be approved for aid to demolish blighted structures on the land. However, applications are not finalized until deeds are in hand. Daly reported that the wait time for a decision on applications is currently around 18 months, and that groups donâ€™t necessarily need to know what they plan to do with the land following SEE REDEVELOPMENT, PAGE 4

weren’t there Wednesday morning. “They understand clearly the situation everybody’s in,” Pentzer said. “And they understand the level of frustration.” Penzater also said the council would not be able to take any legal action in a timely manner that would ensure the project would be finished this fall if Quaker did not finish or was
delayed, and trying to hire another contractor would be no use at this point. The street milling and resurfacing in areas south of High Street were delayed by several utility projects. Sippel still had some sections that require base repair, and gas related work along West Lloyd Street is not complete, which Peoples Gas is expected to finish soon. Quaker Sales remains confident in their
ability to complete all milling and paving by Oct. 31. As for the ramp project, PennDOT approved the updated plans for the two handicap ramps on Triumph Street at South Center Street. A site meeting was held with Kishmo and the ramp excavation took place Sept. 19. The new ramps have been formed in accordance with the new design, however, the council remains concerned
and commissioners want to spread the money across Cambria County instead of keeping the funds centralized, and spoke highly of Daly and the program. Though absent from the conference, county commissioner Mark Wissinger also shared praise via a press
release. “When you take these buildings down, the community is better for it,” said Wissinger. “We are making progress, and the Cambria County Redevelopment Authority is doing a great job working with local municipalities.”

demolition when they apply. Around 20 properties from 14 different groups are currently in the pool of applications. She was firm on the fact that the program is on a “first come, first serve” basis. After approval, the CCRA handles a lot of the technical work required for demolitions, including the bidding process. The CCRA bids multiple properties at once and has connections with almost 200 contractors, meaning they are often able to save money where smaller organizations could not. Groups are not required to match CCRA funds, but Daly noted that matched projects mean more work can be done. She also noted the CCRA works with groups to utilize available equipment or services (like municipal-owned excavators, for instance) to help reduce costs. Chernisky said that the CCRA
that the grades are so pronounced at the intersection that compliance is impossible and that the resulting ramp would prove dangerous. The council has asked PennDOT to inspect the area before Kishmo pours concrete. Moving on, the Ebensburg
Planning Commission reviewed the initial subdivision and land development application for the proposed Dollar General store. However, there are many issues that remain unsolved and a revised plan will be submitted for the commission’s consideration.
American Legion membership eligibility expands
MAINLINE EXTRA - Thursday, October 3, 2019 - PAGE 5

The American Legion is a Congressionally-chartered corporation with membership governed by federal law to times of recognized conflict. This past July, the law has changed to allow nearly all veterans of the United States military to be eligible for American Legion membership. In the aftermath of the Civil War, ex-soldiers formed several fraternal organizations to serve their members after military service. The former union soldiers established the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR), evidenced by the historic GAR Hall near Central Park in Johnstown. Southern soldiers formed a counterpart organization known as the United Confederate Veterans (UCV). Three decades later, the Veterans of Foreign Service, later changed to the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), was founded as a fraternal organization for the military brother-
Ghost Town Trail celebrates 25 years
By Allie Garver
of Mainline Newspapers
A grassroots movement started by Laurie Lafontaine in 1991 and a push to turn abandoned railroads into recreational pathways brought trail enthusiasts together Sept. 27 for a 25th anniversary celebration of the Ghost Town Trail. Not far from the Eliza Furnace, a poignant landmark on the trail in Vintondale, people gathered and exchanged stories of their many treks, whether it be biking or hiking. “Twenty-five years ago, this trail was started and we had about 19 miles of trail built ... now we are at 46 miles of trail,” said Cambria County Conservation and Recreation Authority (CCCRA) executive director Cliff Kitner. “We’re hoping to complete another 5.5 miles, which will complete the 32 mile loop on the trail and we’re working on acquiring some line to Loretto which would add another four miles.” As folks gathered and milled about, they were asked to sign in to the celebration, but that sign in also gave everyone in attendance the chance to win grand prizes that included a camping package, overnight stays and other equipment. A slew of speakers were lined up to talk about their efforts and stories behind the Ghost Town Trail, even those who were involved way back when it was just a dream, and one of those people was Lafontaine. Lafontaine said that though the initial idea of the trail may have started with her after she received a flyer in the mail from the Rails to Trails Conservancy that explained utilizing abandoned rail corridors as trails, she wasn’t the only person who made the trail happen. Lafontaine had a story to go along with most of the speakers that day, all of whom had pivotal roles in the construction.

hood of those who served in the short Spanish-American War in 1898. The VFW did not receive a Congressional charter until 1936. The origin of the name “American Legion” was not as a fraternal organization to benefit its members. Instead, it was an answer to the Army and Navy’s poor state of preparedness in 1915. Founded by magazine editor Arthur Hoffman and writer Stephen Reynolds, the original American Legion lobbied the government to strengthen the military, and its officers included former presidents Theodore Roosevelt and William Howard Taft. By 1917, when war was declared, the Legion had 23,000 members in over 80 professions who pledged to fight. Their Legion pledge cards were shared with the government and used to raise two regiments of skilled air mechanics for the war effort. The Legion served its purpose and disbanded in 1917. At the end of World War I in November 1918, some American military officers serving in Europe during the war began to think of creating a sim-
ilar organization for the over 2 million men who served in the European conflict. With the war over and so many draftees stuck in a foreign country missing home and loved ones, the prospect of a long wait to return home took a toll on the soldiers’ morale. One of those men concerned with the morale problem was Lt. Col. Theodore Roosevelt Jr., son of the former president and an officer with the 1st Division. Roosevelt met with a mobilized Oregon National Guard officer by the name of George White. In his civilian life, White was the editor of the Portland Oregonian. This discussion resulted in Roosevelt and White advocating higher headquarters to support a plan for a new servicemen’s organization to include all members of the American Expeditionary Force as well as those still serving stateside. With their support, and by the orders of General John (Blackjack) Pershing, 20 noncareer officers were ordered to the YMCA in Paris in February 1919. A caucus was held for over 2,000 military members in
Paris and another caucus was held in St. Louis for those still stateside. By Sept. 19, 1919, the American Legion was chartered by the United States Congress as a federally chartered corporation under Title 36 of the U.S. Code. The Act of Congress declared that membership was limited to those who served in the United State Armed Forces during any period between April 6, 1917 to Nov. 11, 1918. By September 1942, the membership was expanded to include World War II servicemen. The year 1950 saw the addition of the Korean War to the eligibility list. The previous charter limited membership to those who served in times of recognized conflict, however, the Legion Act, passed in July 2019, states: “In between those recognized periods of war, during so-called peacetime eras, the United States military has been involved in no fewer than 12 known eras, which are unrecognized by the United States Government as periods of war, resulting in numerous United States personnel combat casual-
ties. Those 12 unrecognized war eras occurred at the direction of the then President of the United States, with full knowledge and consent of the then Congress. These undeclared wars began with service personnel serving as advisors in the Greek Civil War beginning in 1946. The list covers military actives including Bay of Pigs, the aborted invasion of Cuba through the Persian Gulf Conflicts, the Cold Wars with Russia and China and many other activities where U.S. service personnel lost their lives in a time of service in an undeclared war.” Because of the Legion Act, 6 million living veterans are now eligible for membership in the American Legion with all the benefits for which they were previously ineligible. Veterans who were honorably discharged but whose service did not fall into the previously defined war eras may now join the American Legion immediately. To do so, eligible members may sign up at www.legion.org/join, at your local post or contact Western Section Adjutant Doug Reighard at 814-615-5431.

After many months of work and optimism, the Mario Lemieux Foundation (MLF) has announced the opening of the new Austinâ€™s Playroom with Small Town Hope Inc. According to a press release, the playroom is located at the â€œtreehouseâ€? on 276 Number 9 Road and is the 37th of its kind. â€œWe are so pleased to open the 37th Austinâ€™s Playroom.

them on social media. â€œ[Itâ€™s] top of mind awareness, Iâ€™m asking you to share it,â€? said Chernisky. The Ghost Town Trail is special because two counties fully support the endeavors of making it the best trail it can be. With the trail extending from Indiana County to Cambria County, the Indiana County Commissioners were also in attendance of the event. â€œIndiana County and our great neighbors from Cambria County are very blessed to possess and share this very beautiful trail,â€? said Indiana County commissioner Mike Baker. â€œWe are Indiana County and Cambria [County] proud.â€? The two-county trail was made possible after the Kovalchick Salvage Company, of Indiana, agreed to donate 16 miles of the former Ebensburg and Blacklick Railroad to establish a recreational trail. This donation included all railroad property between Dilltown and Nanty Glo, which enabled the project to move forward. The first executive director of the CCCRA, Dee Columbus, was there with her husband, children and grandchildren to commemorate the anniversary as well. Columbus said that one day she noticed a group of people roaming around the area, and she was curious as to what they were doing. â€œI wanted to see what was going on, so I stopped and talked to Laurie [Lafontaine] and [Indiana

Small Town Hope Inc. collaborated with MLF to help make the vision a reality. Small Town Hope, founded by nurse Mandi Paronish, is a non-profit dedicated to â€œserving and supporting the health and wellness of the pediatric population as part of a national rural health initiative.â€? Paronish has extensive pediatric clinical experience and founded Small Town Hope to increase the areaâ€™s access to pediatric health services and early education through initiatives and collaborations with local and national businesses and programs. The playroomâ€™s location was partially chosen for its beauty and serenity. As an aver-

Columbusâ€™s involvement and volunteer work with the trail group eventually turned into an 18-year career as the CCCRAâ€™s executive director.

Each Austinâ€™s Playroom features childsized furniture, games, toys, books, activities and child-friendly artwork. Nathalie Lemieux personally designs each playroom, which features a train table, wall-mounted games, a sand table and more in a brightly painted room. Austinâ€™s Playroom was established as a result of Nathalie and Mario Lemieuxâ€™s personal experience while caring for their infant son, Austin. In 1996, Austin was born profoundly premature and spent 71 days in the neonatal intensive care unit.

Two of the biggest obstacles families with children living in rural communities face daily is distance and accessibility.

CCCRA talks potential zipline on Incline Plane hillside By Allie Garver
of Mainline Newspapers
Cambria County Conservation and Recreation Authority (CCCRA) board member Brad Clemenson presented an opportunity to the board that could be a â€œgame changerâ€? for the city of Johnstownâ€™s image. According to Clemenson, there is a lot of activity going on along the Incline Plane hill, and he feels that the authority could be helpful in creating a zipline to bring visitors to the area. â€œThis is a fairly complicated situation here where CamTran was going to develop a zipline on the Incline Plane hillside and, as I understand, itâ€™s been strongly suggested to them that they should stay focused on transportation not recreation stuff,â€? said Clemenson. With that turn of events, Clemenson said that another entity is being searched for to take on the zipline development. â€œThis is, I think, a great opportunity for the conservation and recreation authority, because the idea would be to get a concession agreement or some other contractual agreement with a company that would come in [and] design, build, operate, maintain [and] insure the zipline,â€? said Clemenson. He said it wouldnâ€™t cost the
â€˜Weâ€™re going to change the image of Johnstown, weâ€™re going to be a mountain townâ€™
authority any money to develop the zipline, but â€œthere would be fees that would come out or some kind of an arrangement where some percentage of proceeds or whatnot would go to the authorityâ€? as a partnership. â€œSo itâ€™s potentially, after itâ€™s up and running, itâ€™s potentially a revenue source for the authority,â€? Clemenson said. â€œIt probably would make sense to set up some kind of an exploratory committee because thereâ€™s so many moving parts to this.â€? CCCRA chairman Tom Kakabar said that right now the zipline is
slightly more than a concept plan, but a lot more investigation will need done on the CCCRAâ€™s end before making any concrete decisions. â€œI believe this is one of the projects that can be a signature project [in] Johnstown,â€? said Clemenson. â€œIf anyone comes through Johnstown and they see the zipline on the hillside [and] mountain bike trails ... so people going Route 56 through town theyâ€™re going to look up and do a double take, weâ€™re going to change the image of Johnstown, weâ€™re going to be a mountain town.

industrial town anymore.â€? Clemenson added that in his mind, the zipline is one of those â€œsignature projectsâ€? that will change Johnstownâ€™s image. CCCRA board member Chuck Gironda asked what the parameters are in regard to what the committee will be doing and researching. â€œItâ€™s really involved,â€? said Gironda. Clemenson explained that as things stand now, the Conemaugh Valley Conservancy (CVC) was working on a plan with the city for a park on the Incline Plane hillside that includes the mountain bike
trails, possibly a piece of the September 11 Memorial Trail and boat access to the river. There is also work being done for ADA access as well. â€œThereâ€™s a number of pieces to this where it would be a marvelous park,â€? said Clemenson. He then said that the CCCRA needs to make a decision on whether they want to be a part of just the zipline development or become the owner of the land and the developer of the entire park. As of the meeting, the city of Johnstown owned the property, but there is work being done to transfer it to the CVC. â€œBut the CVC owning the property, what are we bringing to the table then that weâ€™re receiving funds on an annual basis to oversee, if we SEE ZIPLINE, PAGE 10

Student fixes PC Middle School courtyard for Eagle Scout project By Gina Bianucci
of Mainline Newspapers
Sometimes a lot of the news we watch or read can be grim and depressing, so itâ€™s always nice to hear news that affects the community in a positive way. Recently, one Penn Cambria High School freshman decided to give back to the school district. Austin Wheeler, who is working towards achieving the rank of Eagle Scout, wanted to give back to the school because he felt that the school district had given him so much.
â€œI grew as a person, and the teachers mattered a lot,â€? Wheeler said. â€œThey taught me a lot of lessons.â€? Wheeler said he saw that the courtyard was overgrown with trees and shrubs over the past four years. His project was approved in May and he started working on the courtyard in June. Wheeler finished the project Aug. 21. Wheeler worked on his project in phases. The first phase was to get the project approved and fundraise for supplies. He reached out to several local businesses and organizations door-to-door, who provided
him with money or materials. Several private donors also pitched in to help. Wheeler also sold beef sticks to fundraise for the project, and raised $1,206. Wheeler said he is thankful for everyone who supported him. Once the planning and fundraising was completed, the project could begin. First, Wheeler had to remove the trees and debris, build the flower bed and plant flowers. Once that was completed, he tilled the ground, added mulch, and built and stained picnic tables. The final phase was to purchase a plaque for the courtyard and corn hole and ring toss games for the students. Wheelerâ€™s
family and friends also pitched in to help him rebuilding the courtyard. He said that the courtyard is being used for student rewards and for outdoor educational classes. â€œThe students and staff are happy and have thanked me outside of school for the courtyard,â€? Wheeler said. Wheeler is the patrol leader for his troop and is in the brotherhood for the Order of the Arrow. He is currently at Life rank and he should be officially done with submitting his qualifications for Eagle Scout by November or December.

At the Sept. 17 Blacklick Township Supervisors meeting, chairman Rich Miller explained an agreement and resolution between the township and the county’s SERT Team (Special Emergency Response Team).
“It pertains to if any of our police officers in the future decide that they want to be members of the SERT Team that we allow them time to get the necessary training and qualifications, and that, that they would need to be on there, and also for liability as far as workman’s comp if they get hurt during any action that they take,” said Miller.
Supervisor Bev Sherwood Burns made a motion to approve that agreement and pass the resolution for the SERT Team. Miller seconded the motion. In other matters, Miller said that applications to work for the 2020 Census are at the post offices in Belsano and Twin Rocks. “[This] is for anybody interested that
wants to go out and be a census taker and that for the 2020 Census,” Miller said. “They asked that we mention that it’s vitally important here now for all people to give a true reckoning of who they have living with them and that type of thing.” Moving on, Miller mentioned the Amish schoolhouse being constructed SEE SERT, PAGE 14
BVMA, engineer review 422 east wastewater project PAGE 10 - Thursday, October 3, 2019 - MAINLINE EXTRA

The work on the Route 422 east wastewater project is still moving forward with line installation and some restoration, according to engineer Rich Wray at the Sept. 25 Blacklick Valley Municipal Authority (BVMA) meeting. At the time of the meeting, Wray said that the contractor was doing work on Allie Buck Road with both pipe production and roadway restoration. He added that a crew was also testing lines on Cardiff Road. â€œTheyâ€™re standing at about 47,000 feet of line installed, so thereâ€™s

have nothing to do with it other than to put out the bid?â€? asked CCCRA board member Renee Daly. Clemenson said that the CCCRA would receive no funds unless the zipline is built, open and running. He added that under a contract, the company who operates the zipline would share some kind of revenue back to the authority. â€œFor what, though?â€? asked CCCRA board member Josh Yoder. â€œThe CCCRA doesnâ€™t own any property. We wonâ€™t own the zipline.â€?
57,000 on the project,â€? stated Wray. â€œTheyâ€™re looking at completing production of line installation around the first week in November.â€? Wray explained that restoration crews have fanned out across various locations in the entire work area and they â€œare really not concentrating on any one area in particular.â€? In regard to the restoration, BVMA chairman Mike Pisarcik said that if people are concerned because restoration doesnâ€™t look complete, itâ€™s because there is more work to be done. â€œThereâ€™s a reason behind it, thereâ€™s, like, laterals that have to go in, so theyâ€™re going to be back in
there doing that,â€? said Pisarcik. Wray added that many individuals think that â€œfinal restorationâ€? has been done because the contractor is required to put temporary seeding and mulching down. â€œBut people think thatâ€™s it, when, in fact, the restoration crew has to come through in a lot of instances to restore and this is so we can maintain compliance with our soil erosion control plan,â€? Wray said. As far as the condition of Red Mill Road, Wray said that restoration is â€œprogressing, but there are still some things that need to be addressed on that ongoing issue.â€? Moving on, Wray said that he and Pisarcik have decided to start going
out in the field on Thursdays to review the project ahead of substantial completion. â€œWeâ€™re looking at the general condition of the project, weâ€™re looking at the condition of manholes, seeing if thereâ€™s any staining from water getting into the manholes, that sort of thing,â€? explained Wray. In other matters on the project, Pisarcik said that the authority needs to get back to using complaint forms. â€œWe need to get back to complaint forms and get this stuff in writing,â€? said Pisarcik. By people using complaint forms, it is easier for the authority to keep
track of what needs to be done. â€œWhen we approach this point of all the complaints that I have, I will pull my complaints out, get with the inspector on the job site [and] find out whatâ€™s been taken care of and what has not been taken care of,â€? Pisarcik said. Before ending the report on the project, office manager Roxanne Pisarcik announced that new customers who will be tapping into this project will have a tap-in fee rate increase effective Dec. 1. If the tapin fee is paid prior to Dec. 1, it will be $2,000. Tap-in fees paid between Dec. 1 and the end of February will cost $2,250. Any tap-in paid March 1 or later will be $2,500.
Yoder explained that the CCCRA â€œshould issue the RFP [request for proposal] when they come in, review the RFPs and award it based on whatever we come up with.â€? â€œWhatever company comes in with the best proposal, itâ€™s their baby,â€? said Yoder. â€œThe last thing we want to do, I personally feel, is be involved in the zipline business.â€? Yoder agreed with Daly and said that he isnâ€™t sure how the CCCRA would receive any funds from the operator of the zipline. Clemenson said that models of this have been done in California where the zipline
operator agreed to pay the state for the â€œrightâ€? to do the zipline. â€œI understand the concession with the state of California because they have a vested interest ... we, as the CCCRA, have nothing to do with this,â€? said Daly. â€œWeâ€™re not the property owner. Weâ€™re not doing anything other than putting it out to bid. Iâ€™m totally confused on how, then, we are part of receiving a concession.â€? Clemenson said that further research does need to be done, both legally and with liability, before any decision is made.
â€œThis is just an open discussion,â€? said Kakabar. â€œAre we into this?â€? Kakabar said that the CCCRA needs to â€œsomehow become associated with the property in order to do the RFP.â€? The CCCRA formed a committee to further research how the CCCRA could become involved with the zipline. Kakabar said that the two choices he sees are whether the authority is allowing executive director Cliff Kitner to consult and provide guidance to the CVC as the property owner or whether the whole goal of the recreation author-
ity is to â€œbecome more deeply rooted and involved and eventually become the property owner and the â€˜ultimate game changerâ€™ for Johnstown.â€? â€œI agree with you, Brad. Johnstown does need a game changer and this could potentially be it,â€? Kakabar said. â€œWe have recreation in our authorityâ€™s name, so this is something that I think we have to entertain. Is this a recreational component? I think it is.â€? The CCCRA will further investigate the zipline and what hand it should play in developing it.

Steelers defeat Bengals for first win of the season
MAINLINE EXTRA - Thursday, October 3, 2019 - PAGE 11
By Calem Illig
of Mainline Newspapers
The atmosphere was at an all-time high as the Pittsburgh Steelers hosted the Cincinnati Bengals Sept. 30 in Monday Night Football action. With pyrotechnics, an energetic crowd and a clear blue sky, the night set up the perfect environment for an early season NFL clash. But with all the excitement, there were quite a few nerves as well. The Steelers entered the game still winless on the year, and facing an also 0-3 Bengals team, were looking to catapult their season into the right direction. With a 27-3 victory over the Bengals, the Steelers did just that. The Steelers are now 1-3 on the season, and with a win finally under their belt, the team hopes to be on the upswing. â€œOur backs were against the wall,â€? Steelers linebacker T.J. Watt said. â€œWe knew we needed a win. We knew we needed a good performance defensively. I think in all three phases, we went out and performed.â€? The Steelers started their first drive of the game backed toward their own end zone, and a quick rookie mistake put them in the hole. After Diontae Johnson caught a pass at the 18-yard line, Bengals linebacker Nick Vigil knocked the ball out of his hands. The fumble was recovered by Jessie Bates at the
15-yard line to set Cincinnati up in scoring position. The Steelers held their ground on defense, as the Bengals were forced to settle for a 28-yard field goal by kicker Randy Bullock. Early in the second quarter, Pittsburgh got on the board in thanks to a strong effort from James Conner. After rolling out of the pocket and finding Conner on a short out route, Rudolph connected with the starting running back and let him do the rest of the work. Conner hustled through a pair of Bengal defenders to score a 21-yard touchdown to give his team the lead. â€œI knew we were sitting on the bench a lot as a defense,â€? Watt said of the Steelersâ€™ long possession time that kept the defense rested. â€œAny time you can do that and get some rest, itâ€™s going to help you do some plays. I think you saw that tonight.â€? The Bengals seemed to be driving down the field after hogging up much of the possession time, but a big play from Bud Dupree got the Steelers the ball back. After tackling Cincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton from behind, Dupree knocked the ball out of his hands in the process. With Watt nearby, he was able to jump on the loose ball to get the fumble recovery and return the ball back into Pittsburghâ€™s hands. â€œThat was a big play,â€? Steelers
defensive end Stephon Tuitt said of Dupreeâ€™s strip sack. â€œThey were driving down the field. That was big.â€? After a long drive, that takeaway eventually translated into points. The Steelers worked the ball into the red zone, but a big stop by Cincinnati on third down forced Pittsburgh to settle for a 29-yard field goal by Chris Boswell with just under one minute left in the first half. The Steelers got the ball to open the second half and did not waste the possession. After methodically moving the ball down the field in eight plays, 75 yards and 4 minutes, 24 seconds, Jaylen Samuels increased the Steeler lead after keeping the ball in the wildcat formation and adding a 2-yard touchdown just a few minutes into the quarter. â€œWe just knew that we could get a lot of guys going sideways and mess them up a little bit,â€? Samuels said of working the wildcat. â€œThatâ€™s what we did. It was working. We were picking up 5 to 6 yards every play, and we just kept doing it.â€? Following a strong defensive stop and a bad punt that spanned only 29 yards set Pittsburgh up at the Bengals 43-yard line, the Steelers got right back to work. It took only two plays for Pittsburgh to reach the end zone. Following an incomplete pass, Rudolph found Johnson wide
open for a 43-yard scoring touchdown to increase the lead to 21. â€œI got open and made a play on it,â€? Johnson said. â€œThe safety kind of ran with JuJu [Smith-Schuster], so that allowed me to get high and get open. I was kind of surprised. I thought I was going to get hit. Thatâ€™s why I kind of jumped kind of awkwardly. Luckily [the safety] wasnâ€™t around, so I was able to score.â€? Following his fumble in the first quarter, Johnson said it was important for him to put the mistakes behind him. â€œI had to,â€? Johnson said of getting over the fumble. â€œThis is football. Stuff like that is all about how you react to it. I didnâ€™t let it get to me. I bounced back, and I made the plays when my number was called.â€? The Bengals continued to scrap and fight, and just a few moments into the fourth quarter, faced a critical fourth down. Surpassing the field goal and deciding to go for it, Daltonâ€™s pass was intercepted in the end zone by linebacker Mark

Barron to put the ball right back in Pittsburghâ€™s hands. â€œWe were just winning our matchups,â€? Barron said. â€œThe front was winning their matchups â€Ś Itâ€™s just a matter of winning when youâ€™re supposed to win. Everybody has a time when theyâ€™re supposed to make their plays. When you get a one-on-one matchup, they expect you to win them.â€? Unlike last week, the Steelers were able to make the most of the defenseâ€™s takeaways. A personal foul by the Bengals got Pittsburgh in scoring position, and Boswell connected on a 49-yard field goal to increase the lead to 24 with just under six minutes remaining in the game. â€œIt was good to win, but we have to keep it going,â€? Barron said. â€œIt was just one game. We got to build and continue to play. You canâ€™t waste a good momentum builder, confidence builder. We got to go out and win, and do it consistently.â€?
Sewer non-compliance still exists in Portage Township after four years PAGE 12 - Thursday, October 3, 2019 - MAINLINE EXTRA
By Ron Portash
of Mainline Newspapers
After more than four years of letters and threats of legal action, the Portage Sewer Authority said all buildings affected by the sewer line replacement in Portage Borough’s Third Ward and along portions of Main Street have finally become compliant with the borough’s sewer ordinance. Meanwhile, six property owners in the Martindale area of Portage Township are still noncompliant with the township’s ordinance when the sanitary sewer line was extended into that area in conjunction with the borough’s project. All the affected borough and township property owners began receiving letters in 2015 that the project would begin in 2016. Then in 2016, letters were sent to property owners with deadlines to complete sewer lateral connections and pass pressure testing. Once the borough and township projects were completed in November 2016, the property owners received notification that compliance was mandatory by November 2017. The authority granted several deadline extensions due to weather and a shortage of qualified contractors, making the final deadline July 17, 2018. Sewer line replacement in portions of Portage Borough required affected property owners to have their sewer laterals pressure tested and pass certification. At the same time, an expansion of sewer lines into the Martindale area of Portage Township required affected property owners to connect to the new sewer line and disconnect from their septic system. The township ordinance is stricter in that it required testing inside foundations or walls. The borough ordinance only requires pressure testing to the outside of the foundation. Enforcement was more urgent in the borough because the state grant and loan applications included conditions that portions of the old sewer main in the borough’s Third Ward be converted into storm sewer line and turned over to the borough. By late August of this year, the final properties in the borough were brought into compliance or disconnected. Work is underway to finalize the conversion of portions of the old sanitary sewer line into a stormwater line that would directly connect to the Little Conemaugh River.
Authority solicitor Dennis McGlynn said six properties in the Martindale area have not yet complied with the township’s sewer line pressure testing ordinance. Due to the costs involved on both sides, the authority decided not to file civil suits against non-compliant property owners that could see penalties of up to $600 a day. The authority reasoned that the property owners could not afford the fines and the costs, in addition to costs to correct the sanitary sewer line, and this could possibly cause the property owner to abandon the property or file for bankruptcy. Once the July 2018 deadline passed, all affected property owners in the township, including the noncompliant homes, began to receive
sewer usage bills based on their water usage. To penalize the non-compliant property owners, the authority imposed a surcharge fee to the sewerage portion of the combined water and sewer bills township residents receive. The $25 per month surcharge is to be added beginning with the September bill for noncompliance for the first six months. After the first six months, the surcharge increases to $75 a month. If the property owner or person responsible for the bill fails to pay the surcharge, the authority has the right to turn off the water service for non-payment. The authority reserves the right to file civil action on non-compliance for township property owners in the future.
Washington Twp., CMSA and Gallitzin Boro receive grants
MAINLINE EXTRA - Thursday, October 3, 2019 - PAGE 13
By Gina Bianucci
of Mainline Newspapers
Washington Township, Central Mainline Sewer Authority (CMSA) and Gallitzin Borough received grants from the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) for their projects Sept. 17. They were three of four projects in the Mainline area to be funded by the CFA. The CFA was established in 2004 as an independent agency of the Department of Community and Economic Development to administer Pennsylvaniaâ€™s economic stimulus packages. The CFA holds fiduciary responsibility over the funding of programs and investments in Pennsylvaniaâ€™s economic growth. In Washington Township, the grant money will be used toward enhancing the walking trail near the baseball fields. According to a press release from the township, the township â€œintend[s] to enhance the safety of the existing trail by adding light fixtures to each road crossing,
extending the trail another mile and a half and constructing two new bridges to cross over Bear Rock Run.â€? The press release also said that the project will also include planting shade trees along the existing trail and adding a new vegetation layer that will aid in mitigating stormwater runoff. The area will then be converted to multi-use sports fields. According to township officials, the project is expected to start in 2020. The grants, which they have applied for three times, also will be used for improvements to the War Memorial Park/Paul A. Cooney Sports and Recreation Complex. The township received $247,350 in grant money. Gallitzin Borough received a grant for $70,616 from the CFA to fund multi-phase developments at the Gallitzin Athletic Field Park. The upgrades include the installation of a walking trail extension to the upper parking lot, a restroom facility, concession stand, park benches, picnic
tables and repairing existing bleachers and trash receptacles. Both Washington Township and Gallitzin Borough received the same grant, which was awarded through the Greenways, Trails and Recreation Program. The program establishes the Marcellus Legacy Fund and allocates funds to the Commonwealth Financing Authority for planning, acquisition, development, rehabilitation and repair of greenways, recreational trails, open space, park and beautification projects. Grants from this project canâ€™t exceed $250,000 for any project and a 15 percent match for the total project cost is required. CMSA received a grant for $60,000 from the CFA to rehabilitate 126 acres of a severely eroded stream bank along the Little Conemaugh River, including the burial of an exposed section of its sanitary sewer conveyance line to prevent future line exposure. The line was used to treat wastewater, and CMSA wants to maintain the sanitary sewer line
so it does not pollute the river. The grant, which also took three tries before the authority received it, was from the Watershed Restoration and Protection Program. The grantâ€™s overall goal is to restore and maintain stream reaches impaired by the uncontrolled discharge of non-point source polluted runoff and ultimately to remove these streams from the Department of Environmental Protectionâ€™s Impaired Waters list. According to the grant, projects which involve the construction, improvement, expansion, repair, maintenance of rehabilitation of new or existing watershed protection best management practices. There is a maximum of $300,000 for any project, and a 15 percent match of the total project cost is required. According to a press release from Rep. Frank Burns, a total of $878,000 in state grants were awarded to support several recreational, infrastructure projects in Cambria County.
BVMA engineer explains water line relocation on Route 271 By Allie Garver
of Mainline Newspapers
A water line relocation due to a Pennsylvania Department of
Transportation (PennDOT) box culvert replacement was discussed by the Blacklick Valley Municipal Authority and engineer Rich Wray at the Sept. 25
meeting. Wray said that the box culvert being replaced is along State Route 271 right around Blue Star Curve.

â€œPennDOT has given us plans as of last month, the relocation of the water line looks, technically, fine,â€? said Wray. â€œItâ€™s not much in the way of work, rela-
tively speaking.â€? According to Wray, during the site meeting with PennDOT he, along with BVMA chairman SEE RELOCATION, PAGE 14

Mike Pisarcik and board member Drew Klezek, were “assured” that the water line relocation was going to be a part of their overall contract work on the box culvert at no cost to the authority. However, Wray received conflicting paperwork. “The first package we got that was not entirely correct, the next
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 9
package we got conflicted with that package, and in that particular set of documents it appears that they’re asking the authority now to participate in the cost through the provision of material,” explained Wray. “There was no mention of that at the predesign conference.” He added that the only material the authority was asked to
along Duman Road. “They kind of moved in a little bit prematurely, they hadn’t had all their permits and that as far as sewage and that,” said Miller. “Sewage enforcement is aware of it and they contacted the Amish’s attorneys and they assured them it will be brought up to the DEP [Department of Environmental Protection] standards that they agreed to.” According to Miller, they are using two portable toilets outside of the schoolhouse. In other matters, Miller announced that the annual Halloween parade will take place Saturday, Oct. 26, at 4 p.m. in Twin Rocks. The permit to use the road has already been received. The supervisors also scheduled their budget workshop for Oct. 8 at 6 p.m. in the municipal building. “The public is invited to that, also,” Miller added.
supply for that specific project was one grade ring for a manhole at Blue Star Curve. Wray’s suggestion to the board was to schedule a “site specific” meeting with PennDOT to discuss water line and sewer line issues only. “The day we were out there, I think there must have been 35 to 40 people trying to meet on all utilities at once, it was a little confusing,” Wray said. “We need a site specific meeting. PennDOT has agreed to that, we just need to set up a date that we’d be available.” Board member Desmond Warzel said that he remembered
a discussion several months ago at a meeting when the authority was told they had to pay for the relocation. “If you go back and remember, that first one that come out there that the authority would be responsible for 25 percent of the cost, and that’s what we were [doing],” said Pisarcik. “Then when we met out in the field, they come back and said, ‘No, we’ll cover this under our scope,’ is what they told us.” Wray said that there is a 4048 Form and on that document is where a utility service lists the materials that will be needed to relocate, in the authority’s case,
a water line. “They wanted a 4048 Form for those manhole risers, and I said, ‘No,’” Wray said. “I said, ‘The authority is just going to supply those based on the actual need.’” He explained that the authority is going to wait and see how high the pavement is going to be, then base the manhole grade ring on that height. In other matters, Pisarcik said that a pinhole water leak in a copper line was repaired in Vintondale. Roads were also patched in Vintondale after work was done on water lines over the summer.
