Fall Lecture Series set to offer tale of Civil War

October 3, 2013

By Justin Eger

of Mainline Newspapers

Perhaps one of the reasons that the Civil War, this country’s battle against itself across lines of North and South, is because there are just so many stories to tell. As the war raged on, with battles up and down the coastlines and through the farm fields, countless individuals found themselves, unwittingly or not, caught up in the struggle that could very well have torn the nation asunder. It is in these stories, no matter which side of the battlefield that they came from, that tales of gallantry and resolve are found. Next week, the Cambria County Historical Society will share a tale that doesn’t necessarily come from the winning side. As the society’s annual Fall Lecture series kicks off on Monday, Oct. 7, attendees will learn not about victorious Union soldiers, but about a small, relatively untested group of young men who fought valiantly for the Confederacy. According to the historical society, the battle of New Market, which took place in Virginia, was similar to many others that occurred during the war, but with one notable exception —the corps of cadets from the Virginia Military Institute who were among the regiments on the field.

Confederate President Jefferson Davis affectionately referred to those boys, some as young as 15, as the “Seed Corn of the Confederacy,� and with only a few individual exceptions, they had never been in battle. However, by day’s end, they had stepped into the pages of history, and they gained the respect of veteran soldiers on both sides, despite the enormous personal cost. Offering perspective on this battle, and the cadets who made names for themselves with their participation, will be Jim and Suzanne Gindlesperger. Jim is the author of three published books on the Civil War, as well as three additional books he co-authored with his wife Suzanne. The first, “Escape From Libby Prison,� was featured in a Discovery Channel documentary and was optioned by Warner Brothers to be made into a feature movie. That book, and his second, “Fire on the Water,� were both awarded the George Washington Medal for Excellence by the Freedoms Foundation of Valley Forge, and “Fire on the Water� was nominated for the Lincoln Prize, presented by the Lincoln and Soldiers Institute. The first book he co-authored with Suzanne, “So You Think You Know Gettysburg?� was selected for the ForeWord Reviews’ 2010 Book of the Year Bronze Award. Their second book, “So You

Think You Know Antietam?�, was a finalist for the 2012 Book of the Year Award. They have recently completed their third book together, a second volume of “So You Think You Know Gettysburg?�, which is scheduled to be published next May. Jim’s third book, “Seed Corn of the Confederacy,� is the first known book written from the perspective of the cadets of the Virginia Military Institute at the Battle of New Market, Virginia in 1864. “James and Suzanne Gindlesperger have been here two other times to discuss their books on Civil War sites,� offered Dave Huber, president of the historical society. “They are very popular with our audience.� For those who might not be entirely invested in a battle featuring such Confederate flavor, the historical society notes that the battle also featured prominently in the roster of the 54th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry, which sent recruits from Cambria, Somerset, Dauphin, Northhampton, and Lehigh Counties into many conflicts. Their participation in New Market, though, cost the regiment 30 percent of its men. “Seed Corn of the Confederacy: The Battle of New Market,� will begin Monday Oct. 7, 2013 at 7 p.m. at the Kimball Conference Center in Ebensburg. The lecture series will continue into October and November with a review of

Oct. 7 is deadline to register to vote in municipal elections

MAINLINE EXTRA - Thursday, October 3, 2013 - PAGE 3

Monday, Oct. 7, is the last day to register to vote for the municipal election on Nov. 5. Applications from Pennsylvanians registering for the first time, changing their address, or changing their party affiliation must be postmarked or delivered to the applicant’s county board of elections by the close of business on Monday, Oct. 7. The requirement to produce photo ID at the polls is not in effect at this time. Voters in this fall’s election will be asked to show photo identification, to comply with the state’s new voter ID law, but a photo ID will

not be required to vote. Voters who are voting for the first time in a polling place will be required to present a form of ID as required by the law as it existed before the Voter ID law. Any voter who does not have a photo ID can get one free of charge at any PennDOT driver license center, even if he or she was unable to get one in the past. Free IDs include the Department of State Voter ID, which is available by simply providing a name, date of birth, address and Social Security number (if the registered voter has one).

Individuals applying to register to vote for the election must be a citizen of the United States for at least one month before the election, a resident of Pennsylvania and the election district in which the individual desires to register and vote for at least 30 days before the election, and at least 18 years of age on or before the election. For more information on voter registration, call the Department of State’s toll-free hotline at 1-877VOTESPA (1-877-868-3772) or visit www.VotesPA.com.

Motive of killers remains unclear after weekend murders near Ashville PAGE 4 - Thursday, October 3, 2013 - MAINLINE EXTRA

By Rachel Vasilko

of Mainline Newspapers

A couple broke into a home near Ashville Friday evening, killing the woman’s mother and brother before being shot to death by her father. According to authorities, Josephine and Jeffrey Ruckinger of Blandburg planned to murder her family in their home at 643 Bottom Road in Allegheny Township. However, state police are still unsure of the motive for the violent attack. “It is hard to piece together a motive because we can’t talk to (the Ruckingers),� said Cambria County District Attorney Kelly Callihan. State police said the intruders parked at the bottom of the driveway so they would not be detected. Josephine was armed with a 12gauge sawed-off shotgun, and her husband carried a .410 Derringer pistol and a .22-caliber semi-automatic handgun. John and Roberta Frew, and their adult son John Jr., 47, had returned to their home just before 10 p.m. and were all in the living room at the time of the intrusion, state police said. The Ruckingers knocked on the front door before

entering the double-wide mobile home. Police said Roberta, 64, answered the door and yelled out something like, “Oh my God, they have guns!� before being shot by her daughter at point-blank range. She died of a single bullet wound to the chest. At that time, authorities said John Jr. attempted to arm himself, but Jeffrey Ruckinger shot him in the chest multiple times, killing him.

John Sr. grabbed a .22-caliber revolver from a rear bedroom of the home, and emerged to find Josephine Ruckinger aiming at him. He fired a shot, striking her in the head. He then turned and exchanged fire with Jeffrey Ruckinger, killing him. He then called police. Josephine Ruckinger was still alive when police arrived, but was later prounounced dead in the trauSEE MURDERS, PAGE 9

SFU expands offerings for seniors with yoga at DiSepio Institute

MAINLINE EXTRA - Thursday, October 3, 2013 - PAGE 5

By Justin Eger

of Mainline Newspapers

After a successful start earlier this year, the DiSepio Institute for Rural Health and Wellness at Saint Francis University is looking to expand its programming for seniors, offering greater flexibility (pun intended) in its exercise curriculum for the more elderly residents of our communities. This expansion will occur through the univeristy’s ongoing SilverSneakers programs. “SilverSneakers is a fitness program that is offered to seniors over the age of 65,� said Melinda B. Krimmel, Assistant Director of DiSepio For Fitness Center, a part of the DiSepio Institute for Rural Health and Wellness at Saint Francis University. “This program encourages seniors to participate in group exercise classes, workout in fitness centers, and participate in social events at sponsoring facilities. SilverSneakers is a benefit of their medical insurance program, and some participating insurance providers are Highmark, AARP medicare supplement, Bravo, Independence Blue Cross.� Beginning this week, the DiSepio Institute offers SilverSneakers Yoga. The SilverSneakers Yoga class will be held from 10-11 a.m. each Wednesday, and began yesterday, Sept. 25. SilverSneakers Yoga will move a participant’s whole body through a complete series of seated and standing yoga poses. Chair support is offered to safely perform a variety of seated and standing postures designed to increase

flexibility, balance, and range of movement. Restorative breathing exercises and final relaxation will promote stress reduction and mental clarity. “DiSepio got involved with SilverSneakers in May of 2013. We wanted to offer a program that was specific to senior health and wellness, as it fits so well into our mission of providing health and wellness opportunities to the com-

munity,� Krimmel offered. “We started with offering SilverSneakers Classic and SilverSneakers cardio group exercise classes, which are currently running at this time, but we chose to offer yoga to give seniors a different way to improve their flexibility, balance, and range of movement in a safe environment.� And for those seniors who might be considering a try at this new

CCHL seeks to end abortion with National Life Chain event PAGE 6 - Thursday, October 3, 2013 - MAINLINE EXTRA

By Megan Riner

of Mainline Newspapers

“It’s a child, not a choice,� said Joanne Link, treasurer of the Citizens Concerned for Human Life Inc., CambriaSomerset chapter. The CCHL is participating in a nationwide “stand up for life� event on Sunday, Oct. 6. The National Life Chain is a “prayerful, peaceful protest� by pro-life Americans standing with the nation for an end to abortion. It solidifies the belief of the Christian community that abortion kills children, and that the community supports and upholds the sanctity of human life from the moment of conception to natural death. The National Life Chain will be taking place along Route 219 in Carrolltown from 1:30 to 3 p.m. Signs will be distributed from tables in front of Saint Benedict Church. Restrooms will be available. Anyone that cannot stand for long periods of time is invited to bring a lawn chair to the event. “I believe it is very important to stand along a well-traveled road and hold signs that say ‘abortion does kill children,’� Link stated. Following the protest, the 10th grade confirmation class at Saint Benedict is sponsoring a baby shower to benefit the Gabriel Project. The Gabriel Project helps women and girls with troubled pregnancies by providing them with clothing, wipes, blankets and other necessary items for one year. The project has helped women in the Northern Cambria area in the past. The baby shower will take place at Saint Benedict Hall. New baby items, diapers, wipes, and gently used baby clothes and furniture will be gladly accpeted. Donors are asked to not wrap the gifts. Light refreshments will be served. Everyone is welcome to the shower, which is a celebration of life and a time of fellowship and fun. “Rejoice! Fear not!� were the words of encouragement and hope spoken by the angel Gabriel to the Virgin Mary in announcement of her unexpected pregnancy. The Gabriel Project works to deliver the same message of hope to expecting mothers today. Their mission is to respect all life at

any age. They are committed not only to the unborn but to the mothers, as well. Life Chains take place annually the first Sunday in October. Churches in cities and towns all over North America are invited to stand on a designated sidewalk and pray for 90 minutes while holding an approved prolife sign. Life Chain is a time for

prayer, repentance, and serious commitment to helping end abortion in America. For more information on the Life Chain or baby shower taking place in Carrolltown, contact Joanne Link at (814) 3448371 or visit www.lifechain.net or www.prolifecambria somerset.org.

Commissioners add new member to economic development authority

Board extends Keystone Opportunity Zone By Jim Lauffer

of Mainline Newspapers

The Cambria County commissioners took their end-of-themonth meeting on the road, holding their Thursday, Sept. 26, meeting at Blacklick Valley Elementary Center. After being welcomed by Blacklick Valley superintendent Dr. John Mastillo, the commissioners quickly worked through their agenda, in the process setting what President Commissioner Doug Lengenfelder characterized as a “record� for the length of the meeting. The commissioners’ business included appointing a member to the Cambria County Economic Development Authority and approving a resolution related to a Keystone Opportunity Zone. The commissioners unanimously appointed AmeriServ CEO Glenn Wilson as the sixth member of the Cambria County Economic Development Authority for a three-year term, beginning on the date that the Secretary of the Commonwealth issues the authority’s Certificate of Incorporation. Lengenfelder pointed out that adding a seventh member to the authority remains under consid-

eration, that Wilson’s appointment was discussed in executive session, and that he could offer no specific details about his appointment. The president commissioner added that the authority had met for the first time during the first week of September. During this meeting, members discussed administrative items, such as who would chair the authority. Lengenfelder said that during the next meeting, members would establish the structure of the authority and begin discussing who would they would hire for the subject-area expertise. He characterized the authority as a “conduit� that would provide information to potential investors and further described the process of economic development as working “both ways.� Investors would bring partially complete products into the county, where they would be finished by local workers in newly created positions. Lengenfelder emphasized that “businesses create jobs in America.� Commissioners passed their eighth resolution of 2013, a resolution that extends the term of the existing Keystone Opportunity Zone in Johnstown

to Dec. 31, 2023. The extension is contingent on approval by the Department of Community and Economic Development. The zone, located below Prospect, off Iron Street, and near Cambria City and Minersville, was created from property formerly owned by Bethlehem Steel. Lengenfelder explained that Keystone Opportunity Zones operate on a two-year cycle. During the first, new zones can be opened and contract extensions granted to old ones. During the second year, current zones can be expanded. “This will happen next year,� he said. If all goes according to plan, the Johnstown Keystone Opportunity Zone will be developed by Aspen Water Inc., a water purification company. Commissioner Mark Wissinger pointed out that the zone is located below the Hinckston Run Reservoir, owned by the Cambria Somerset Authority, so the area has access to abundant water.

Cambria Township approves liquor license, land use plan PAGE 8 - Thursday, October 3, 2013 - MAINLINE EXTRA

By Jim Lauffer

of Mainline Newspapers

As equipment of varying sizes clears the parcel of land where the Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill and Bar will open in early 2014, the Cambria Township supervisors are at work to clear the behind-the-scenes paperwork required to open the eatery to be located along Jamesway Road. At their Monday, Sept. 23, meeting, supervisors approved the transfer of a restaurant liquor license from 802 Scalp Inc., a now-defunct business that once operated in Richland Township, to Apple Pennsylvania LLC. Apple Pennsylvania’s parent company is Apple American Group, the nation’s largest Applebee’s franchisee, owning and operating approximately 440 Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill and Bar restaurants in the U.S. Prior to their regularly scheduled meeting, the supervisors and their solicitor, Dennis Govachini, held a public hearing to discuss the transfer of the license. The meeting was attended by the future manager of the local Applebee’s, by the company’s regional manager, and by the franchise’s attorney. No public comments against the transfer were voiced.

“I don’t anticipate any appeals [to the transfer],� Govachini said after the transfer was approved. Supervisors also approved two motions related to the development of the parcel of land that Applebee’s is developing along Jamesway Road. The first, in Govachini’s words, was “to grant waivers relative to sections of the township’s ordinances.� Those waivers, previously approved by the township’s planning commission, were primarily related to the percentage of lot coverage and to the minimum number of feet required from the parcel’s property lines, mainly along the back part of the property. The second motion proceeded from the first and was a motion to approve the company’s land-development plan — contingent on its addressing the comments of township engineer Keith Vasas of the EADS Group. “They’re almost finished,� he said, “but they’re not quite done with the sewage-planning module.� After approving the license transfer and the land-development plan, supervisors noted that, at that time, Applebee’s still had to post financial security for the project, to submit a driveway permit application, and to sign the stormwater management agreement.

Ebensburg community celebrates Senior Center Month

MAINLINE EXTRA - Thursday, October 3, 2013 - PAGE 9

By Kristin Baudoux

of Mainline Newspapers

September is National Senior Center Month, as recognized by the National Institute of Senior Centers, an organization that promotes and supports the nation’s 11,000 senior centers across the country. On Thursday, Sept. 26, the Ebensburg Senior Community Center held a party to celebrate Senior Center Month and the start of fall. Nancy Long, president of the Vision Committee, the committee which plans activities for the center, said that over 50 seniors showed up to enjoy an afternoon of dancing, socializing, good food and good fun. The event featured music by Zupe, an entertainer whose repertoire ranges from ‘50s to polkas to patriotic tunes. “He's a one man show, an all around entertainer,� said Long. Ann Barber, a regular at the Ebensburg Senior Community Center, attended the dance last Thursday, and was pleased with the entertainment and atmosphere. “He was the best entertainer we had all year, and the food was good,� said Barber. The party was not all that the center had planned for the week. The group spent last Saturday’s Potatofest selling doughnuts, sloppy joes, chips, water and coffee to

ma unit at UPMC Altoona. John Sr. was uninjured. Authorities believe the elder Frew did not immediately recognize the intruders as his longestranged daughter and her husband because they had been out of contact for over 20 years. “He has not seen his daughter in a significant number of years,� said Trooper John Matchik. “He had no idea it was his daughter until after everything unfolded.� Police have made no arrests so far, and the results of ballistics and toxicology tests are still pending. “Naturally, we are still in the very early stages of the investigation,� Matchik said. Search warrants have been executed, and police have searched the scene for evidence. A search of the Ruckinger’s vehicle revealed a large amount of ammunition, a gas can and a can of charcoal lighter fluid. Police have classified the case as a home invasion with a murder plot, with the Frews the main victims in the assault. “Our findings are that he used deadly force to save his own life and the lives of his family,� said Callihan of the elder Frew. “We see him as a victim of an attempted homicide.� Police said John Frew has been very cooperative with their investigation.

attendees. Since the center is a little bit off the festival’s beaten path, the center was able to lure hungry customers via volunteer kids with giant potato signs. Potatofest gives the seniors an opportunity to raise money for the center and show the community what all the center has to offer. Earlier that week, on Sept. 25, the

day before the party, the seniors also had the opportunity to spend a day out at Raystown Lake, a yearly tradition for the seniors every fall. Roughly 30 seniors attended the trip which included a boat ride around the lake along with a lunch. If you think the center is done with trips for the year, you would be mistaken. The center also has planned

for Oct. 3 and Oct. 10 trips to Bedford County to visit Boyer Orchards, Fisher’s Grocery Store, and lunch at Slick’s Ivystone. Long said that there is always a demand for this trip, so a second date has been added to accommodate everyone's schedules. Also coming up soon for the center is their Basket Raffle, to be held

on Oct. 12. The proceeds from the raffle go toward the center to provide for activities, trips, speakers and classes. For more information regarding the Ebensburg Senior Community Center's events, stop in between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. at its location at 209 North Julian Street or call the center at (814) 472-5226.

around somewhere, but it’s not in my house, and I didn’t see it when my mom moved, either, so I think I’m going to have to chalk that one up to experience. But you can’t keep everything. It’s impossible. Even the amount of stuff I have now is almost mind-numbing when I think about taking it somewhere else, or finding some way to convey it from my current home to where we plan to settle down. On a few occasions, I’ve aimed to simply box massive amounts of it up and dump it off somewhere, including almost my entire comic book collection. However, my wife, for whatever reason, refuses to let me do it.

I’m not a hoarder, not by any means. I keep things that I enjoy, or have some sort of sentimental value, in that order. Even then, “sentimental� can get tossed by the wayside whenever it comes to the sheer need to remove junk from my house. Didn’t remember I had it? Haven’t looked at it in six years? Out it goes! Which has created a few problems, especially of late, when I go looking for something that has sentimental value, only to realize that, at some point in recent history, it did not, and is thus now in some unknown location. Most recently, it was my baseball glove, given to me by my father for games of catch in the backyard. It might still be

Old coal miner’s basement? No garage? No shed? Moving on.

But at some point, I’m going to have to make do with whatever we can find. After all, if I try to do something insane like build a house, I might as well just dig out an extra hole in the basement to bury myself in, because after the cost of the ground, the foundation, and the construction, I’d probably never see daylight again.

Steelers face rare adversity

Look for us on Facebook!

By Ed Bouchette

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

It has been quite some time since the Steelers found themselves in this position. Their traditional goal of winning their division and competing for the Super Bowl has changed dramatically. Their new mantra is to avoid a season for another kind of ages, one they have not experienced in quite some time. Even ownership might not remember what a truly bad season looks, feels and tastes like. Welcome to the world of the Jacksonville Jaguars and Cleveland Browns. Go 1-15 or even 4-12? Those records are for the underclass of the NFL, not the haughty Steelers, not the team that houses the most Lombardi

Trophies, not one of the most stable franchises in football. Ben Roethlisberger often talks about the 08ers, the 10 players still on their roster who won a Super Bowl. Others now mention the 68ers, the previous team of this proud franchise that lost its first four games. For the record, that team 45 years ago lost its first six, finished 2-11-1 and got its coach fired. This team now wants to ward off a season becoming ... “Dismal?� Ryan Clark answered. “Yeah, you do.� There will be some who want this team they see as hopelessly out of the playoff hunt to SEE STEELERS, PAGE 21

Gas prices continue to fall, keeping in line with national trends

MAINLINE EXTRA - Thursday, October 3, 2013 - PAGE 15

Average retail gasoline prices in Pennsylvania have fallen 6.1 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.44 per gallon yesterday, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 5,269 gas outlets in Pennsylvania. This compares with the national average that has fallen 5.8 cents per gallon in the last

week to $3.43/g, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com. Including the change in gas prices in Pennsylvania during the past week, prices yesterday were 42.3 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 17.8 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has

decreased 18.8 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 36.6 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago. “Gasoline prices continue to erode with twelve states that are seeing prices under $3 per gallon, and more states will join in on that over the next seven days,� said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst

Patrick DeHaan. “While it's generally good news that gasoline prices continue falling, many Americans don’t believe we're likely to see national averages drop under $3 per gallon over the next year at the pump,� DeHaan said. GasBuddy surveyed over 10,000 motorists with twothirds of respondents saying

that the national average will remain between $3 and $4 per gallon through 2014. Perhaps in a sign of positive sentiment, just 13 percent of respondents said they thought that prices nationally would exceed $4 per gallon, while 20 percent believed prices could go under $3 per gallon.

Jackson-East Taylor water authority asks for help in locating leaks PAGE 16 - Thursday, October 3, 2013 - MAINLINE EXTRA

By Jim Lauffer

of Mainline Newspapers

Since the Jackson Township Water Authority purchases its water from other municipalities, finding leaks in its system is of paramount importance. Fixing leaks lowers the authority’s consumption of water, thus lowering the number of gallons that the authority purchases each month. Simply put, fewer gallons consumed equals lower costs. Although the authority owns and uses leak-detection equipment, its board members, at their Tuesday, Sept. 24, meeting, pointed out that the most important leak-location assets are members of the community. “We cannot stress enough that we need help in finding leaks,� said Robb Piper, vice chairman of the board. “People’s eyes and ears are the best detectors.� He added that folks should report wet areas that are not normally saturated, as well as unusual sounds they might hear. The authority’s emphasis on finding and fixing leaks is paying dividends. During his report to the board, foreman Karl Smith pointed out that the average number of gallons passing through the authority’s Nanty Glo pump station (260,000 gallons per night) and George Wyse station (49,000 gallons per night) is coming down. “We’re finding and fixing leaks,� he said, “and our water consumption is lower.� Like waterline leaks, disinfectant by-products — formed predominantly when chlorine is used to treat drinking water — bedevil water authorities. Recently, Smith attended a seminar offered by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, and one topic of the seminar was how to deal with disinfectant by-products. The DEP establishes the maximum allowable levels of such by-products in potable water, even though it has no definitive answer for how to lower them. Generally, levels of by-products are higher during warm-weather months and lower during colder weather. If tested levels remain high, the authority must notify its customers. “The bottom line [regarding by-products] is that we have too many tanks with too much water that is sitting for too long,� Smith said. “We’re not turning our water over fast enough.� The authority maintains five water storage tanks. It was noted that the amount of water stored in each tank is largely determined by the need to maintain water pressure for the authority’s customers and the water requirements of potential emergencies. “We have to keep the tanks up,� Smith concluded. Authority engineer Pat Mulcahy of the EADS Group noted that the DEP is aware of the difficulty that water authorities face in dealing with disinfectant by-products. “I’d like to point out that DEP has been cooperative,� he said. “I don’t think that DEP is in a position to take any action regarding this. They don’t have an answer.� He added that chlorine remains the preferred treatment chemical because it is stable and easy to use and that other treatment options — for exam-

ple, chloramines — are expensive and challenging to use. “There’s not an easy answer to [disinfectant by-products],� Mulcahy concluded. The consensus among board members was that the authority should do the best it can in providing potable water to its customers and that if levels of disinfectant by-products became high, then it would notify its customers.

continue to lose to better their 2014 draft position. Those people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t populate their locker room. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have to hope we can turn it around because we have to believe we can still be part of something special,â&#x20AC;?

Coach Mike Tomlin suggested as much after the game, that players who do not buy into turning things around will be gone. But replaced by whom? The outside world is not brimming with talent ready to ride into Heinz Field on a white horse to help save their season.

going to happen. Some are still in shock. No player â&#x20AC;&#x201D; not even the head coach â&#x20AC;&#x201D; was born the previous time they went 04, which already is halfway to their loss total last season, regarded in the disastrous category by them and their fans at 8-8. They have not had a losing season since they went 6-10 in 2003, which showed the floor can fall out without warning. That record came after they went 13-3 in 2001 and played host to the AFC championship game in spanking-new Heinz Field, and made the playoffs again in 2002, nearly repeating their visit to the title game. Even though they came through their worst record under Tomlin last season, they had high expectations again for this one. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expected it at the beginning of the season,â&#x20AC;? Clark said of their predicament. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is not what

we were expecting to be. But as the games go on, you lose the first one, you lose the second one, the third and the fourth. You understand after each one, the position youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tough, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tough.â&#x20AC;? Thing is, it can get worse. Just as winning can become a habit, so can losing. The Steelersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; worst record since the NFL merged with the AFL in 1970 occurred in 1988, and no one saw that coming, either. They were one strike-game playoff loss in 1987 from making the playoffs. A New York writer convinced a publishing company that Chuck Nollâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Steelers were headed for big things in 1988, to follow them and write a book about it. They went 5-11, and Sam Toperoff titled his book â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lost Sundays.â&#x20AC;? Today, they need to go 5-7 the rest of the way just to match that record. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I said earlier in the season, prob-

ably after two losses, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re spoiled as an organization and as a group of players in that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re so big-picture oriented,â&#x20AC;? Clark said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When the season starts, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Super Bowlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ... I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like that in every city.â&#x20AC;? And then, the losing begins, and it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t end. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So, right now, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about winning a game, right now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about now having a zero in the win column,â&#x20AC;? Clark said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just have to be 1-0 in Week 6,â&#x20AC;? William Gay said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the bottom line. Down the road is down the road.â&#x20AC;? Tomlin did not say that to his team after the 34-27 loss Sunday against the previously winless Minnesota Vikings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to preach that,â&#x20AC;? said Gay. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You should know that as an NFL player. You should just know that, period. What you can control is whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in front of you,

Property tax elimination plan gains co-sponsors, steam PAGE 22 - Thursday, October 3, 2013 - MAINLINE EXTRA

By Melissa Daniels PA Independent

Support for the Property Tax Elimination Act is at a groundswell. Last Tuesday afternoon, under September sun and surrounded by red, white and blue, around 200 Pennsylvanians gathered on the Capitol steps to continue their push for passage of House Bill 76, which would swap more than $10 billion in school property taxes with increases in income and sales taxes. Some lawmakers called them

heroes. Other leaders called them patriots. Some deemed them activists and citizen lobbyists. Jim Rodkey, project chair of Lebanon 9-12, had the first applause line of the dozen or so speakers who stood at the podium in the 45minute long event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No tax should have the power to leave you homeless,â&#x20AC;? Rodkey said. HB 76 aims to be revenue-neutral, not raise more or less for school districts than property taxes would, and alleviate homeowners from the weight of rising rates.

The bill has gained support in the Senate and House â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and plausibly, among citizens. But recent efforts to get rid of some school property taxes, instead of eliminating them altogether, appear to be more palatable to some lawmakers. Rep. Jim Cox, R-Berks, a lead sponsor of HB 76, said his caucus is divided. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gonna get ugly,â&#x20AC;? he said, predicting thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plenty more discussion to come on property taxes this fall. The bill has 91 co-sponsors in the House and 24 in the Senate, a bipartisan showing that includes

    

OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK

lawmakers from areas like Philadelphia, the Lehigh Valley and south central Pennsylvania. But other lawmakers, including House Majority Leader Mike Turzai, R-Allegheny, support allowing individual school boards to decide whether to replace property taxes with other revenue streams. That legislation, House Bill 1189, passed out of the House Finance Committee meeting Monday. The bill wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it for Cox, or those of the Pennsylvania Taxpayer Cyber Coalition, an organizer behind Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rally.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not willing to settle for this little thing we call relief and reform,â&#x20AC;? Cox said. Supporters on Tuesday were steadfast in their dedication to HB 76, reading off name-by-name the co-sponsors, and applauding individually. Some had arrived in Harrisburg by buses charted by taxpayer advocate groups, while others drove themselves. Rodkey told them their chief job was to lobby lawmakers, namely the Senate, to get more co-sponsors. Assuming all co-sponsors would cast a â&#x20AC;&#x153;yeaâ&#x20AC;? vote for HB 76, the

proposal needs 11 more in the House and two in the Senate to pass, much smaller margins than when the bill was introduced last session. Support among the citizenry has grown, too. Around 31 member groups participated in such advocacy in 2011, now there are 81, according to PTCC. House Finance Committee Chairman Kerry Benninghoff, RCentre, who supports HB 1189, said the property tax issue has been around for decades, as no plan has had enough legislative support.

have issue with increased property taxes, and as such, all-out elimination proposals have come and gone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The reality is, those bills donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t garnish votes,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You got to raise income taxes pretty high, you got to raise sales taxes pretty high, in order to make those flexible.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The real solution is for the governor and state lawmakers to step up and increase state funding for schools,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will take pressure off local property taxes without upending the system for education our state needs to grow and children need to thrive.â&#x20AC;? Eliminating property taxes altogether is a cause that Democrats, Republicans, citizens and elected officials have gotten behind in the face of tax-related foreclosures. Supporters on Tuesday toted signs like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eliminate Property Taxes NOW!! Unfair / Unconstitutional,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Replace

School Property Taxes / Let Us Keep Our Homes,â&#x20AC;? and at least one â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Tread on Meâ&#x20AC;? flag, one of several Revolutionary War messages of the day. Supporters argue seniors who have paid off their homes or young families getting started cannot afford property tax bills while on a fixed income or while paying a mortgage. Rep. Rosemary Brown, R-Monroe, said unsustainable property taxes causes irreparable harm to communities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The American dream of owning your home is destroyed,â&#x20AC;? she said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;When a new source of taxation is found it never means, in practice, that the old source is abandoned. It merely means that the politicians have two ways of milking the taxpayer where they had one before.â&#x20AC;? - H. L. Mencken
