Saint Francis University trustees name new president-elect November 21, 2013

Fr. Malachi Van Tassell to lead Loretto institution beginning next year By Justin Eger

of Mainline Newspapers

“I’m very excited,� said Fr. Malachi Van Tassell, T.O.R., as he discussed the announcement that he has been named president-elect of Saint Francis University. The announcement was made last week, not long after the university’s board of trustees completed a final round of interviews with their prospective candidate. Fr. Malachi will take the reins of the university after Fr. Gabriel Zeis, T.O.R., makes his exit from SFU at the end of the 2013-14 academic year. SFU began the search for its next president earlier this year, after Fr. Gabe declared his intent to retire from the presidency. A decision was expected earlier this year, but the board of trustees opted to delay any action. Both then and now, it seems that Fr. Malachi was a leading contender. “I think that they were looking for someone who would work to preserve and foster the Franciscan identity of the university,� said Fr. Malachi, who professed vows as a Franciscan in 1999 and was ordained to the priesthood in 2004 at the Immaculate Conception Chapel at Saint Francis University. That he also carries an accounting background, the former accountant and longtime accounting professor shared, didn’t hurt his prospects, but it was likely Fr. Malachi’s commitment to the university and surrounding community that

helped win over his interviewers. “Over the last 12 years, I’ve developed quite the appreciation and love of the place,� Fr. Malachi said of the university and its neighbors in Loretto. Indeed, those who did not know Fr. Malachi from his work at SFU likely knew him as deputy fire chief and chaplain of the

Loretto Volunteer Fire Company, a role he enjoyed for 10-and-a-half years. “I hate to use the word ‘retired,’� Fr. Malachi said, “because you’re never really ‘retired’ as a firefighter, but I had to step back some as my responsibilities increased at the university. I had a

great run with them, though.� Fr. Malachi observed that, coming into his presidency, it is nice to already be familiar with the people of the community, having lived in Loretto for the last dozen years. That has allowed him to build and foster relationships that he hopes will continue in the coming years as he works to “build on the successes of previous presidents and foster the ministry of service that the Franciscans are known for,� he said. Fr. Malachi is the son of Fred

Planning continues for Ebensburg’s Dickens of a Christmas PAGE 2A - Thursday, November 21, 2013 - MAINLINE EXTRA

By Amanda Petrunak of Mainline Newspapers

Take a step back in time and prepare yourself for a winter Victorian wonderland; Ebensburg is hosting its eighth annual Dickens of a Christmas on Friday, Dec. 6 to Sunday, Dec. 8 at various locations throughout the town. Christmas is just around the corner, and plans are

DUI hit and run crash The accused, Rodney Rietscha, of Portage Township, crashed his vehicle on Nov. 7 around 12:30 a.m. along Beyers Rd., Croyle Township, while driving under the influence. Rietscha fled the scene. The passenger was seriously injured during the crash and was transported from the accused’s residence by the passenger’s girlfriend.

Fatal motor vehicle crash On Nov. 3 at 2:58 a.m., Pennsylvania State Police Ebensburg responded to the area of Portage Street (SR 53) in Summerhill Township for a report of a one vehicle fatal crash. Upon arrival at the scene, officers determined that the 20year-old male operator, Zeth Markel of Beaverdale, was driving north on SR 53 and was attempting to negotiate a left curve in the roadway. Markel lost control of his 2013 Chevrolet Equinox. The vehicle traveled off the roadway and struck an embankment. After impacting the embankment, the vehicle went airborne, and upon landing, began to roll over. Markel, who was unrestrained, was transported to Conemaugh Hospital for the treatment of his injuries and a legal blood alcohol test. The 21-year-old passenger, Lyle Popish, who was also unrestrained, was ejected from the vehicle. Popish was pronounced deceased at the scene by the Cambria County Coroner as a result of his injuries. Alcohol is believed to be a fac-

The event kicks off on Friday with special activities at the Cambria County Courthouse during the day. County employees will decorate the row offices in the theme of a Victorian-era Christmas carol. The

courthouse will remain open for visitors all weekend long. There will also be a Light-up Ceremony in the evening followed by a Cresson Lake Playhouse performance of “A Cresson Lake Christmas.� Some other events will include a Victorian concert at the historic Noon-Collins Inn, and a Hat Fashion Show & Tea with the Hat Ladies of Johnstown.

building were victims, Robert James Edgar Jr. of Coalport, Terry Lee Dewitt of Dysart, Scott Allen Harmic of Altoona, and Nicholas Allen Wills of Dysart. Three of the bullets penetrated into the interior of the building; one of these striking Edgar in the left hip and exiting through his left buttock. Edgar suffered a moderate wound and was treated at Altoona Hospital. Shick was originally arraigned on the charge of terroristic threats on Oct. 19. On Oct. 24, those charges were upgraded to also include four counts of aggravated assault and four counts of discharge of a firearm into an occupied structure. The accused was arraigned on the new counts on Oct. 24. His unsecured bail was set by District Judge Nileski at $20,000.

Hit and run Security surveillance observed a crash as a dark-colored pickup truck was traveling south on SR 219, Shawna Rd., Susquehanna Township, on Nov. 2 at approximately 7 p.m. The truck left its lane of travel, into the parking lot of Quaker Sales. The vehicle traveled onto the west side berm, traveling onto the guardrail striking a utility pole. The vehicle backed off the guardrail between two steel beams and struck a building. The truck then fled the scene north on SR 219. Access device fraud State police are investigating an incident around Oct. 28 in which someone from New York obtained debit card info on the victim and was able to withdraw $2,000 from her account.

Aggravated Assault Victim Anthony Roger Lee, of Dysart, and the accused, Russell Scott Shick of Beccaria, had a verbal confrontation in George’s Tavern, Dean Township, around 12:30 p.m. on Oct. 16. During the confrontation, the accused made threatening comments to Lee. Later in the evening, at about 11:30 p.m., the accused returned to the bar. He traveled southbound on SR 53, slowed his vehicle, and fired multiple shots out of his vehicle and into the structure of the bar. Inside the

Loretto museum to host ‘Conversations with the Curator’

MAINLINE EXTRA - Thursday, November 21, 2013 - PAGE 3A

The Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art at Loretto’s new curatorial lecture series, “Conversations with the Curator: A Lecture-and-Lunch Series for Art Lovers and Collectors,” will continue on Thursday, Dec. 5. The program will begin at 12:15 p.m. and includes a 45-minute talk by SAMA Curator for Visual Arts, Dr. V. Scott Dimond, as well as a box lunch. An informal Q&A period

will follow. The December program is titled “Temples Without Walls: American Landscape Painting and the Hudson River School.” For much of the 19th century, landscape painting dominated the art scene in the United States. Today, historians view the paintings of Thomas Cole, Frederic Church, Albert Bierstadt, and the other members of the so-called “Hudson

River School” as being some of the most original and significant works produced by artists of that time. In this talk, Dr. Dimond will discuss the rise and decline of this first important American art movement and explore the deep meaning behind the spectacular paintings that it generated. “These lectures are intended to be informative, yet informal and fun,” said Dimond. “There will be plenty

Organizations add support to regional inclusive playground PAGE 4A - Thursday, November 21, 2013 - MAINLINE EXTRA

By Justin Eger

of Mainline Newspapers

As representatives of S&T Bank handed Dr. Luke Lansberry a check in support of the Central Cambria community’s regional inclusive playground project, he didn’t even look at the numbers printed across the front of the check. Instead, he focused on thanking the bank’s management for their contribution, whatever the amount. Still, as he stood next to a movable box that has slowly been filling with loose change and dollar bills, all donated since the project was announced earlier this year, his reaction to what was printed on the check was literally physical. Seeing “$3,000� on the front of the check, Lansberry’s eyes visibly welled up, and he looked at his colleagues in near disbelief. “I’m speechless,� he said. “There are so many kind people in this community.� Indeed, whether it has been pennies, nickels, quarters, dimes, dollars or checks, the donations that have been made to the regional inclusive play-

Jennifer Mesoras, Dr. Luke Lansberry, and Candy Long, representing the Central Cambria Education Foundation, accept a donation of $3,000 from S&T Bank assistant branch manager Andrea Everetts, S&T community banking manager Dorothy Bailey, and S&T regional manager Frank Ferra. Photo by Justin Eger.

ground project have not only been generous, but steady. It is a project that, as Lansberry later said, “more and more people are beginning to understand why we need a place like this in our community.� The idea of a regional inclusive playground is as basic as you can get: a playground where children of all abilities can enjoy themselves. A worthwhile goal, but more difficult in its execution than one might suspect. As often as children can be excluded from playground activities due to physical or mental disabilities, it is a challenging prospect to develop a playground site that can be used, literally, by any of them. Lansberry, who has been leading the charge for this development, explained to S&T representatives visiting Cambria Elementary last week that the appropriate vision is a playground without borders, one that doesn’t tell a child in a wheelchair that they must enter a special way or use special equipment. “It’s about building social cap-

Dr. Lansberry said following the donation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What we really need to make this project a reality is for business leaders in the community to adopt a piece of equipment for the playground. This project is about giving every child the opportunity to play with their peers at the playground, to be able to swing, to go down a slide, to have the barriers of disability removed, even if only for an afternoon.â&#x20AC;? Indeed, AUCPF offered a similar message, challenging leaders of businesses and community organizations, whether for profit or non-profit, to support this project, and in turn, support children with disabilities, by making a significant contribution to the playground.

The $3,000 donation came just days before Choices, People Supporting People Inc. and Alleghenies United Cerebral Palsy Foundation presented a check to Lansberry and the Central Cambria Education Foundation in the amount of $30,000. That donation was presented just last evening, by Choices CEO Marie Polinsky and members of the AUCPF board of directors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are grateful for the support of the Choices Community Foundation and we applaud their leadership in this endeavor.

And it is those children Lansberry credits for helping keep the ball rolling on this project despite its $245,000 price tag. Their excitement with regards to the project is palpable, with educators sharing that the kids want it in place, right now, so them and their classmates can enjoy it. One educator shared a story of a little boy confined to a wheelchair who, during warmer weather months, canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to get outside and use the lone swing set up for disabled students in the existing playground. With a facility like this, she said, he would have more options. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s these little ones who are going home and educating their parents about this, about why we need something like this for the students, not only here, but throughout the region,â&#x20AC;? Lansberry shared, pointing out that the facility would not be reserved solely for Central Cambria students; any school interested in using the facility that is willing to transport their children to Ebensburg is welcome. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It benefits everyone, and it benefits us right here, as well.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good cause,â&#x20AC;? said S&T Bank regional manager Frank Ferra. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a community

District Magistrate Charity Nileski discusses time on bench "$"## $')&

  

              

District Magistrate Charity Nileski announced that she will be retiring at the end of her term, which wraps up this year. She has served as district magistrate in Cresson for 18 years, but has worked in the office since 1973. Nileski says she took a job as a magisterial clerk in 1973, and she held that position for over 20 years. In 1995, Nileski decided to run for district justice and was elected. She was sworn into her new office in 1996. Nileski credits her former boss, Ken Robine, for inspiring her to run for the office. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was behind me the whole way,â&#x20AC;? she said.

Robine had to retire in 1994 due to illness, and the office lay empty for almost two years. Nileski said Robine was very influential in her decision to take his place as district magistrate. District judges have duties in both civil and criminal law under the Judicial Code. Civil cases they handle include landlord-tenant disputes and contract or personal injury matters involving amounts up to $12,000. District judges are also the first person to hear misdemeanor and felony criminal cases, and they set bail and preside over preliminary hearings. Nileski said that she has been involved with thousands of cases over the past 18 years, and in 1988, the Cambria District Court

47-3-04 in Cresson had the highest number of cases in the county. Even with the large number of cases, she has been more than happy to serve her district. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I loved every minute of it,â&#x20AC;? Nileski said. Nileski said that she could have run for one more term before she would have to retire, but that she made the decision to step down at the end of the year. She said she wanted to make it easier for president judge Tim Creany to oversee the merger of her Cresson office with neighboring Portage. Two district magistrateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offices are being closed down, leaving eight remaining in the county. Nileski said that part of the case load from her court will be handed over to district judge Galen

Mr. Fremont J. McKenrick will be this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grand marshal for the 8th Annual Dickens of a Christmas event in downtown Ebensburg. Before retiring in 2009, Fremont McKenrick spent 57 years as an attorney in the South Center Street office his grandfather built, and as part of a family firm dating back to the early 1880s. For seven of those years, he served as assistant district attorney and afterward, the county's chief public defender from 1972-76. In addition to his career in law, Mr. McKenrick has also made a career out of serving his community. For decades, he has served as president of the Cambria County Historical Society and is an active supporter of the Boy Scouts of America. He has played the organ in church for more than 60 years, though considers himself to be more of a â&#x20AC;&#x153;jazz pianistâ&#x20AC;?, and is a longtime member of the Ebensburg

Presbyterian Church. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fremont was the first name mentioned for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grand Marshal,â&#x20AC;? said Danea Koss, community development director, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and it was a unanimous decision among Borough staff and officials â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in fact, we were surprised that he had not already been asked to serve as Grand Marshal.â&#x20AC;? Mr. McKenrick has spent nearly all of his 90 years as a resident of Ebensburg, apart from his time in the service and his years of schooling at Cornell University and Penn Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dickinson School of Law. Mr. McKenrick and his wife of 63 years, Margaret, raised their two children in Ebensburg; a daughter Ann (Chicchi) of East Brunswick, NJ and son, Bruce who passed away in 2006. They now have 5 grandchildren; three girls and two boys. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very happy and thankful to have been chosen,â&#x20AC;? said McKenrick, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quite an honor and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking forward to

it.â&#x20AC;? Mr. McKenrick will lead courthouse employees in song during the courthouse tree lighting and wassailing on Friday, Dec. 6 at noon.

Portage community puts final touches on upcoming Winterfest

MAINLINE EXTRA - Thursday, November 21, 2013 - PAGE 7A

By Amanda Petrunak of Mainline Newspapers

â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year we are proud to present our newest attraction for the Portage Winterfest, a historical scavenger hunt,â&#x20AC;? said Bonnie Fox, coordinator of Portage Winterfest. The Winterfest Committee held a meeting at the Chatterbox on Wednesday, Nov. 13 to discuss the upcoming events. Winterfest will take place Friday, Dec. 13, to Sunday, Dec. 15. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new attractions consist of sleigh rides through town and a historical scavenger hunt through Portage. The organization Thrill of the Hunt is partnering up with the Portage Winterfest Committee for this special event. The scavenger hunt will begin Saturday morning; it is free to the first 50 people who register. After the first 50 registrations, there will be a charge of $10 per ticket. It is an adult scavenger hunt, but smaller kids may come along with an accompanied adult. To register for the event, you must be 13 years of age or older. The purpose of the scavenger hunt is to challenge the knowledge of the town, while providing an adventure through the area. By uncovering the clues and completing the challenges, you can explore Portage and what it has to offer. You will need a smart phone, a social media page, such as Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, or Pintrest. It is recommended you wear a good pair of walking shoes. The course has not been completely mapped out yet, but it will roughly cover three miles total, depending on how the clues and challenges are tackled. Anyone can reserve a spot by registering online at www.thrillscavengerhunt.com/eve nts. Once you navigate your way to the site, click on the link that says Portage Scavenger hunt on the right hand corner of the page. The scavenger hunt will begin at 10 a.m., and it will end at 1 p.m. Not all the participants will need the full allotted amount of time, but extra time is added in to give each person in the community a fair chance. Be prepared to walk; the event will take place rain or shine. Winter conditions will not delay the event. All registration check-ins will take place at 24 Hour Fitness at 808 Caldwell Avenue. You must check in before the event. Come on out for a day of fun and excitement, and be prepared to learn the history of Portage. An adventure awaits you!

Local man films best friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s move to India to help children PAGE 8A - Thursday, November 21, 2013 - MAINLINE EXTRA

â&#x20AC;&#x153;A truly beautiful film about the power of love.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Morgan Spurlock After graduating from Cambria Heights High School in 2001, Steve Hoover moved to Pittsburgh and attended the Art Institutes. He and a friend founded Endeavor Media and have directed and produced many music videos, including Owl Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fireflies.â&#x20AC;? When Hooverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best friend Rocky Braat quit his job and went to India, he decided to visit an orphanage on a whim. There he met a group of HIV/AIDS children and was so moved by them that he gave up everything to help them. The children were dying, yet they found happiness in their lives. Rocky spent the rest of the summer at the orphanage and went back the next year. In his directorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s statement, Hoover stated that Rocky â&#x20AC;&#x153;had found home.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Years have passed since then. Rocky endures a daily diet of rice, a rat infested hut, visa problems. He suffers with the children. He counts out the pills for them in the morning. He is an amateur dentist, clown, teacher, friend and father to the children. They call him â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Rocky Anna,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; which means â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;brotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in Tamil.â&#x20AC;? Intrigued by what compelled Rocky to move to India, giving up his job and lifestyle to endure hardships in India, Hoover made a decision to go visit him. He said that â&#x20AC;&#x153;what he found him doing would strike a resounding chord in my heart and change me for good.â&#x20AC;? Hoover witnessed as Rocky and the children battle disease, pover-

ty and death. And despite it all, he saw their joy and he understood why Rocky gave it all up to experience it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was inspired to tell his story because I know him. I know he isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a saint or a miracle worker, but every day he fights his own nature and the forces arrayed against him, and I think that maybe this story could inspire others, as well.â&#x20AC;? The story turned into a featurelength documentary, something Hoover had always wanted to create. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Blood Brother,â&#x20AC;? tells the story of a man, dissatisfied with his life in America, who finds home living and working with children in need, dedicating his life to them unlike the other people who came and went in the childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lives. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any real personal connection to what he was doing,â&#x20AC;? Hoover said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I only had what he would tell me.â&#x20AC;? Rockyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life was something Hoover could not understand at first, but after filming he was changed too. Recently, Hoover helped one of the boys from the orphanage visit the United States. Hoover supplied him with a passport and a visa and brought him home to meet his family in Carrolltown. He said the boy rode a lawn mower for the first time, a simple pleasure we may take for granted. In the past year, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Blood Brotherâ&#x20AC;? won many awards including Sundance 2013 Grand Jury Prize, Sundance 2013 Audience Award and the Milano Film Festival Awards Best Documentary, among many others both nationally and internationally. The film has also received wonderful reviews from both filmmakers and critics.

Plans for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dickens of a Christmas celebration in Ebensburg are shaping up, and the committee is excited to announce the return of the Holiday Home Tours. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The tours of the historic homes was one of the most popular events during Dickens of a Christmas,â&#x20AC;? said Danea Koss, Ebensburgâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Community Development Director. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had the tours recently because it is difficult to find residents willing to decorate a bit earlier in the season, and to open their homes to that many visitors.â&#x20AC;? But this year, several homeowners have stepped up. Some of the homes are new to the tour, and some are returning favorites from past tours. The tour will include the J. W. Leech House (Tusing), the Philip Noon House (Noon-Collins Inn), Fenwyck Hall Annex (Carlin), the Constantine Barker House (Askew-Houser Funeral Home),

the McFadden Homestead (Inzana), and the James House (Homady). â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are all great old homes, important to Ebensburgâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history,â&#x20AC;? said Borough Manager Dan Penatzer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are all examples of Victorian architecture and design, and all are decorated for the season.â&#x20AC;? This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Holiday Homes Tour will be held on Sunday, December 8th from 1 to 4 p.m. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased by calling the borough office at 814-4728780. The homes can be toured at the visitorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own pace, and in any order. Children aged 5 to 10 years old can be dropped off at the Young Peoples Community Center for the Dickens Drop-N-Shop event. While parents tour the historic homes, children will participate in activities including Christmas games, arts and crafts, a pizza party, and a movie.

House Tours return for Dickens of a Christmas

Despite the acclaim, Hoover said he never expected his documentary to be screened outside of Pittsburgh, but now it is set to play at over 70 theaters nationwide. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a great year as far as the film is concerned,â&#x20AC;? Hoover said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I never expected it to do so well, but now it has played all over the world.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Blood Brotherâ&#x20AC;? will be shown at Cambria Heights High School in Patton on Saturday, Nov. 23 at 7:30 p.m. Polly Slovikosky, who arranged the screening said that there will be no charge for admission, but donations will be accepted and all proceeds will be sent to Rocky and the children in India. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really happy that the people in my hometown get a chance to see [â&#x20AC;&#x153;Blood Brotherâ&#x20AC;?],â&#x20AC;? Hoover said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wish I could be there.â&#x20AC;? The film will also be shown at the Carmike 8 Theatre in Altoona on Monday, Nov. 25, and tickets are $11. Details about the screening and reserve tickets can be found at http://www.tugg.com /events/6272. Funding for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Blood Brotherâ&#x20AC;? was supported solely from donations, which means that every dollar of the filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proceeds goes to help the orphanage and the children with HIV in India, as well as supporting Rocky and his continuing efforts. Several nonprofit organizations have jumped on board to help with meeting financial goals. More information can be found at www.givethemlight.org and www.bloodbrotherfilm.com. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When all this blows over, Rocky will still be in India and we want this to somehow support him for a long time. We have no personal interest for financial gain in this project. We just want Rocky to continue to do his much needed work and hopefully inspire others to join in.â&#x20AC;? Advances in AIDS treatment have made possible a medication that can extend the lifespan of the children to basically normal. This creates a new challenge for the children living in the orphanage, since they are now able to live past the age the government mandates the orphanage to allow. New questions are raised, such as how will the children survive on their own? Proceeds will also go to help other hostels in India that are on the verge of being shut down so that these kids will not have to live without a home. Another

future goal includes hiring qualified staff to stay in the home with the children and provide motherly

Students’ mustaches make for a good cause at Saint Francis

MAINLINE EXTRA - Thursday, November 21, 2013 - PAGE 9A

By Megan Riner

of Mainline Newspapers

You’ve heard of walking for a cause, but what about growing facial hair for a cause? Saint Francis University students and faculty are participating in a worldwide movement to raise awareness for men’s health, one mustache at a time. Movember, a combination of the Australian slang word for mustache, “mo,” and “November,” the month for which the campaign is held, began in Australia in 2003. Since then, it has been changing the face of men’s health. Literally. Dr. John Miko, associate dean of business at Saint Francis University, started raising awareness for men’s cancer research last year. Miko partnered with the fraternity, Phi Kappa Theta, who hosted many events to support the initiative. Through these efforts, the university was able to donate more than $1,100 to the Movember movement. Altogether, more than $147 million was raised globally in 2012 and sparked 2.7 billion conversations about men’s health. Men who participate in Movember start off the month clean shaven. Along the way, as they grow their masterpieces, they are also increasing awareness for men’s health. These men raise funds through sponsors who donate based on their hair growing efforts. Women have been known to sport fake mustaches to show their support, as well. “For the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, groom, trim, and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery,” Miko offered. Men have been known to attempt to grow / shape their facial hair into that of famous mustache legends, such as Hulk Hogan, Tom Selleck, and Ron Burgundy. Approximately 50 people are involved in Movember at Saint Francis this year. These people include students and faculty, growers and fundraisers. “With their mustaches, sometimes ridiculously bad, these men raise vital awareness and funds for men’s health issues, specifically prostate and testicular cancer,” explained Miko. Movember is a cause that many college students can get behind and have fun supporting. “Students enjoy growing mustaches themselves and enjoy seeing professors sporting awkward facial hair,” Miko stated. “The more awkward the better because it starts a conversation about an important topic. It often goes like this: ‘What is going on with your face? It looks awful.’ Well, I am growing this to raise awareness and money for male cancer research and funding.” One in six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in his lifetime, which makes it the most diagnosed cancer, second only to skin cancer. One in two men will be diagnosed with some form of cancer in his lifetime. Since men can be indifferent about their health, the level of awareness for men’s health issues is severely behind other causes. “Movember aims to change the face of men’s health and reverse this way of thinking by putting a fun twist on this serious issue,” Miko said. “Using the mustache as a catalyst, we want to bring about change and give men the opportunity and confidence to talk about their health more openly.” Miko is hoping to surpass last year’s fundraising amount. Donations are being accepted at http://tinyurl.com/SFUMovember. “We want everyone to know that most cancers are highly curable if caught in the early stages, therefore Movember aims to increase early detection, diagnosis, and effective treatment,” explained Miko. “This will ultimately reduce the number of deaths from cancer.”

Mountie Madness event shows off new building on Cresson campus

While sudden and sporadic snowfalls might have kept many in Cresson at home the night of Nov. 12, many braved the cold night for a chance to support the Mount Aloysius College Mounties — and tour the campus’ newest addition, the $25 million Athletic Convocation and Wellness Center that has been under construction for well over the last year. But while physical construction took a relatively short time, the building itself has been on the Mount Aloysius College radar for years. “Fifteen years,” explained Dr.

Tom Foley, MAC president, as visitors and students alike wandered the halls of the new facility, located at the western edge of campus. “This has been a long time coming. Sister Mary Ann Dillon, the previous president, had a vision for this place, part of a campus master plan, and this is the final piece of that plan.” It took so long, Foley shared during the evening’s events, because it takes a long time to raise $25 million, though some help was forthcoming from the state of Pennsylvania, which offered a $10 million grant to help facilitate construction.

Will bear harvest trend continue? PAGE 2B - Thursday, November 21, 2013 - MAINLINE EXTRA

2013 seasons hold promise, but hunters might need to up their efforts

Recent years have been some of the best on record for Pennsylvania bear hunting, and the annual statewide bear seasons again are about to kick off. Leading the way is the statewide archery bear season, which opens Monday, Nov. 18. And after that five-day season comes to a close on Nov. 22, properly licensed hunters who still are in pursuit of a bear can participate in the fourday general season that opens Saturday, Nov. 23, then runs from Monday, Nov. 25, to Wednesday, Nov. 27. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been plenty of reason to get excited about bear hunting in recent years. The 2012 harvest of 3,632 bears statewide represents the third-largest in state history. And last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s take follows an all-time record harvest of 4,350 bears set in 2011. A growing bear population, which now numbers 16,000 to 18,000, and expanded hunting opportunities in recent years have contributed to the large harvests. And the combination has helped to create a sweet spot in time for in-state bear hunting, said Mark Ternent, bear biologist for the Pennsylvania Game Commission. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In Pennsylvaniaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never been a better time to hunt bears,â&#x20AC;? Ternent said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nowadays itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s getting increasingly harder to identify our so-called best bear hunting counties, because opportunities are becoming increasingly better throughout so much of the state.â&#x20AC;? In 2012, for example, hunters harvested bears in 56 of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 67 counties, and Pennsylvania routinely has been seeing harvests in 50 counties or more. Bear-hunting success across the state is something Ternent said simply wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t possible 30 years ago, when bear populations were more concentrated in core areas of northcentral and northeastern Pennsylvania. And this expanded range has many Pennsylvanians reclassifying what they consider â&#x20AC;&#x153;bear countryâ&#x20AC;? and where they might choose to hunt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a case where there are only a few areas where a hunter might get close to a bear,â&#x20AC;? Ternent said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That opportunity exists throughout much of the state, and in areas some might not expect.â&#x20AC;? To suppress conflicts that might arise from bear populations expanding into more inhabited parts of the state, an extended bear season exists in a handful of Wildlife Management Units. In WMUs 2B, 5B, 5C and 5D, bear season is open concurrent to the archery, early muzzleloader and firearms deer seasons. And hunters in other WMUs also have a limited opportunity to harvest a bear during portions of the upcoming firearms deer season. Those areas include WMUs 3A, 3B, 3C, 3D, 4C, 4D, and 4E. A complete list of opening and closing days can be found on Page 36 of the 2013-14 Pennsylvania Hunting & Trapping Digest

issued to hunters when they purchase their licenses, or at the Game Commissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website, www.pgc.state.pa.us. All bear harvests must be reported to the Game Commission. Hunters who harvest a bear during the fourday general season must take it to one of the Game Commissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s check stations within 24 hours. Taking bears to a check station also might be required in WMUs where bear hunting is permitted during all or a portion of the firearms deer season. A complete list of requirements, check stations and their dates and hours of operation can be found on pages 37 and 38 of the 201314 Pennsylvania Hunting & Trapping Digest. Hunters who harvest a bear during the bear archery season â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or in any other period where check stations are closed â&#x20AC;&#x201D; must within 24 hours contact the Game Commission region office that serves the county in which the bear was harvested for checking instructions. Ternent said bear hunters up their chances of success by hunting near available food sources, and with a spotty acorn crop this year, preseason scouting might make the difference. Locating acorns might result in finding a bear nearby, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hunters might need to do more homework than usual this year,â&#x20AC;? Ternent said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bears will shift around to find food, and those hunters who scout for areas with better foods, whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s acorns, beechnuts, black cherry, or agricultural fields, will have an advantage. That doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean the hunter who heads to his usual spot wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find bear sign; he just might see more or less of it depending on the local food conditions.â&#x20AC;? Still, Ternent said thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no reason to believe 2013 doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hold the potential for another record harvest. Among other factors, the bear harvest is driven by the number of bears and the number of bear hunters, and both appear to be up this year, he said. The weather during the season will play a crucial role in determining the harvest. For those taking part in the bear seasons, the opportunity exists to harvest a truly large bear. Last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s harvest included 45 bears weighing 500 pounds or more, five that surpassed the 600-pound mark, and the heaviest bear overall â&#x20AC;&#x201D; harvested in Monroe County â&#x20AC;&#x201D; weighed 709 pounds. Ternent confirmed also that bears weighing in excess of 800 pounds continue to roam Pennsylvaniaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wilds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of rich tradition tied to bear hunting in Pennsylvania, and the upcoming seasons hold a lot of promise,â&#x20AC;? Ternent said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While predicting the harvest is tricky business, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always a safe bet to say that a number of hunters will experience the thrill of a lifetime in the coming weeks.â&#x20AC;?

Northern Cambria mayor disputes borough manager’s raise

MAINLINE EXTRA- Thursday, November 21, 2013 - PAGE 3B

By Megan Riner

of Mainline Newspapers

When the Northern Cambria borough council motioned to approve a $1 an hour raise for borough manager Dee Nagle, as recommended by the finance committee at the meeting Tuesday, Nov. 12, Mayor Carol Jarvis posed a question for council president Eugene Certo,

who is also on the finance committee. “How is there money for a raise but not for a rifle when a rifle costs less than the raise?” Jarvis queried. Jarvis explained that six guns were sold between March and April for a total of $3,997. Raising the borough managers wages by $1 an hour will total $2,080 for the 2014 year. Jarvis recalled the May meeting when

councilman Wilbur Kelly motioned to buy a rifle for the police force for $1,970. Rifling through her notes, Jarvis stated that Certo voted “no” to the purchase. “Kelly has been on the finance committee for a year and a half and he has never been to one meeting,” Certo told Jarvis, “so he doesn’t care about the budget.” Certo defended his reason to

approve the raise and said, “She [Nagle] puts a lot of time in. These meetings she doesn’t get paid for. She isn’t even the highest paid person in the borough, but she has the most work.” Jarvis still wanted to know why her request for a second rifle was denied when the money was clearly there. “Why buy another rifle if there’s

no bullets?” Certo asked Jarvis. “That doesn’t even make sense.” “Eventually there will be bullets,” Jarvis informed him. “Eventually I’ll be dead,” Certo fired back. “Kelly made the comment that he would give the borough all the bullets they need. Where are they?” “There hasn’t been a bullet fired in SEE MAYOR, PAGE 12B

Power Team delivers message of strength      

 PAGE 4B - Thursday, November 21, 2013 - MAINLINE EXTRA

By Megan Riner

of Mainline Newspapers

The Power Team, a group of professional athletes and world record holders, all of whom are gifted speakers, delivered its message of hope and encouragement to the students at Northern Cambria Elementary / Middle school on Friday, Nov. 15 in a unique way. Two of the Power Team members, Bonzai and Timber, wowed students with their amazing strength. Timber currently holds the world record for breaking through approximately 18 feet of ice walls, and is vying to break the record for number of baseball bats snapped in half. Timberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sheer size was enough to make the students gasp in awe â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 6-foot-3 and 300 pounds, with a chest measuring five feet and biceps measuring nearly two feet. Timber blew up a hot water bottle, guaranteed not to break, as if it were bubble gum. The bottle burst with a loud bang. He also snapped a Louisville slugger like a toothpick and crushed two cans of soda onto unsuspecting audience members who were doused with the beverage when the cans erupted. Bonzai also had the students cheering when he ripped a 1,000page phone book and bent a halfinch steel pipe twice using his teeth. The latter feat is something unique to the Power Team, since the severe injuries it caused to competitors, ripped biceps and pectoral muscles, eliminated it from strength competitions. After capturing the students attention with their muscle power, Bonzai, whose real name is John Kopta and who is vice president of the Power Team, held the students rapt attention as he spoke about the importance of saying no to drugs, alcohol, and peer pressure. But it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the typical â&#x20AC;&#x153;donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do drugsâ&#x20AC;? speech that students are used to. Kopta found a way to connect with the students using actual experiences from his life in a way that would mean the most to them based on their age levels. The message was the same for both of the elementary schoolsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; students â&#x20AC;&#x201D; you can be anything you want to be. Follow your dreams. Think for yourself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tough times donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t last,â&#x20AC;? Kopta assured the students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tough people do.â&#x20AC;? Kopta described the three chairs of life that people sit in. The first chair is the chair of commitment to a dream or goal. This is a chair that everyone starts out in. The second chair is the chair of compromise and the third is the chair of conflict. People have the ability to choose which chair they want to sit in. Kopta also provided examples of teenagers who started out in the first chair, committed to their dream. These teens had everything going for them, star athlete on the basketball court with offers to play at any school he wanted, a cheerleader whose only dream was to cheer in college. But these teens chose drugs and alcohol over their dreams. The star basketball star is now an alcoholic. The aspiring cheerleader was in a car accident after a night of drinking. Her best friend died and she is forever paralyzed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You might think it might be cute to get drunk or get high for the first time, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not cute when the consequences are real,â&#x20AC;? Kopta told the students. He then stated that life is about choices and the students are the only ones who can make them for themselves. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are lots of stores and roads in Pennsylvania,â&#x20AC;? Kopta explained, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but there is only one of you.â&#x20AC;? For the elementary school chil-

dren, Kopta delivered the same â&#x20AC;&#x153;be drug-freeâ&#x20AC;? messages, but used superheroes to illustrate his point. He told the kids to be a â&#x20AC;&#x153;HERO;â&#x20AC;? to Honor Each other, Respect Others. Kopta told the students to respect everybody. He also reassured them that dreams do come true. The messages seemed to hit home with the students. Every eye was on Kopta as he shared stories of dreams that died due to the use of drugs and alcohol. Middle school students were all in agreement that the show was awesome and a lot of fun.

accounts thus far, it was money well spent. At the heart of the facility, of course, is its athletic uses. Mount Aloysius basketball players took to the polished hardwood courts that night, flanked on either side by fans, fellow students, family members, and the Mount Aloysius College community at large. As they did, the multimedia technology was also put on display, showcasing an impressive sound system and video wall that highlighted the key points of the night. Roving videographers, too, added footage to the wall in a manner reminiscent of professional level stadiums and auditoriums. Outside the courts, though, the Athletic Convocation and Wellness Center offers more. Yes, there are the requisite concessions stands and merchandise tables, locker rooms and training facilities, all on display to support the eveningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mountie Madness,â&#x20AC;? but there were also educational spaces. Little expense was spared in constructing new classroom space, which Foley said will be used by 15 classes in the upcoming semester, all with state-of-theart access to technology. Furthermore, the building will become a sort of home for the collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business department. Faculty have already begun moving into their new offices that are housed on the western edge of the facility, and Foley has encouraged that faculty to put their students to work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re planning to host our first high school basketball game here in January,â&#x20AC;? Foley said by way of example. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So we brought the business students here and told them to build us a plan â&#x20AC;&#x201D; how do we market the event, the building, the campus, all of it. We want them to tell us what to do, and gain some practical experience from the exercise while they do it.â&#x20AC;? But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for the future. Last Tuesday evening, instead, was about the excitement of a project completed and a public welcomed. The campus has long hoped that the community beyond the campus walls would also find the Athletic Convocation and Wellness Center a haven for their own needs. To that end, the building boasts a startlingly expansive fitness facility with numerous high-tech instruments to help people reach their personal goals. As students, faculty, and visitors explored what was available,

excitement was very much palpable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This place has a lot to offer,â&#x20AC;? said one visitor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just about athletics. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really a lot that the community can take advantage of here.â&#x20AC;? An official â&#x20AC;&#x153;grand openingâ&#x20AC;? event has yet to be scheduled for the Athletic Convocation and Wellness Center, though one should be forthcoming sometime in the spring of next year. As to the delay, a sudden snow squall that pasted visitors gathering outside for a flag-raising ceremony was enough to remind all those in attendance that the Cresson campus is often at the mercy of the elements â&#x20AC;&#x201D; at least outside. Inside, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a whole other world.

The fitness center in the new Athletic Convocation and Wellness Center on the Mount Aloysius College campus will be open to the public. Photo by Justin Eger.

Antonio Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best is still to come Look for us on Facebook!

Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is a pretty good player, right? We saw his formidable talent again Sunday when he had seven catches for 147 yards and two touchdowns in a 37-27 win against the Detroit Lions. Brown leads the NFL with 74 catches, two more than Houstonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Andre Johnson. He ranks fifth with 952 receiving yards, the second most by a Steelers player after 10 games since 1960. A case can be made Brown is well on his way to being the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Most Valuable Player for the second time in three seasons, although Ben Roethlisbergerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supporters in the locker room might vote differently. But Brown isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even close to being the player he can, should and, hopefully, will be. This is just his

fourth NFL season and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s far from a finished product. He still will drop critical passes from time to time. Even worse, Brown still often will run the wrong route. Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mental errors happen more than you might think. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve definitely got to get better,â&#x20AC;? Brown said. That was nice to hear. Even more encouraging was Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s declaration that he plans on training in the offseason with Lions great Calvin Johnson in Atlanta. Johnson is considered the best receiver in the NFL and the Lionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hardest worker. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a student of the game. No one becomes truly great without paying attention to even the smallest details. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anything I can do to learn from him, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do,â&#x20AC;? Brown said. Look out if a little of Johnson rubs off on Brown SEE STEELERS, PAGE 11B

Two women playing twelve instruments! The award-winning, musical duo Simple Gifts is back as Saint Francis Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Artists-inResidence for the fall 2013 semester. The fun, energetic duo performed on campus in November 2012, and returned by popular demand. Simple Gifts plays a variety of ethnic-folk styles, from lively Irish jigs, to down-home American reels, to everything in between. Based in the hills of central Pennsylvania, these women play an amazing array of instruments. They combine tradition and innovation, creating some of the finest arrangements in folk music today. Simple Gifts delivers their music with intensity and enthusiasm, making this a show that is not to be missed! As part of their Artist-inResidence duties, Simple Gifts performed concerts and hosted workshops for the local and Saint Francis communities throughout the semester. Their grand finale will take place on Saturday, Nov. 23. From 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. they will hold a workshop that is open to the public in the campusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; JFK Auditorium. All ages are invited to participate and bring folk instruments. The cost is $3 or a donation to the Dorothy Day Centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Food Bank. They will conclude with a public performance at 7 p.m. in the JFK Auditorium. The cost is $5 or a donation to the Dorothy Day Centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Food Bank. This project is partially supported by a grant from Pennsylvania Performing Arts on Tour, a program developed and funded by the Heinz Endowments; the William Penn Foundation; the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency; and The Pew Charitable Trusts; and administered by Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation.

â&#x20AC;&#x201D; weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be talking about a really special player. Brown has such respect for Johnson that he asked to exchange jerseys with him after the game Sunday. You should have seen him stick Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s No. 81 jersey â&#x20AC;&#x201D; covered with dirt, grass stains, sweat and perhaps even a little blood â&#x20AC;&#x201D; into his backpack before heading off into the Pittsburgh night. He clearly treasured his valuable piece of memorabilia. But Johnson went home with a nice prize, as well. Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s No. 84 jersey might be worth something one day. A lot, actually. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a big-time wideout of our own,â&#x20AC;? Tomlin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We think he is capable of affecting the outcome of games, much like their guy.â&#x20AC;? Brown had a huge impact Sunday, both early and late in the game. He turned short passes from Roethlisberger into 34- and 47-yard touchdowns on the first two possessions as the Steelers opened with their no-huddle offense. As impressive as Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s catch-and-runs were, his 16-yard grab early in the fourth quarter on a third-and-9 play from the Steelers 4 with the Lions leading, 27-23, might have been more meaningful. The Steelers ended up going 97 yards in 16 plays to score the go-ahead touchdown on that drive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ben put me in some opportunities where I could make some plays,â&#x20AC;? Brown said. Brown did. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a credit to him,â&#x20AC;? Roethlisberger said of Brown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He just makes plays, when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s there and when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not there. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just the special player that he is.â&#x20AC;? It looked as if Brown was eager to hold his own against Johnson. The hype surrounding Johnson in the days leading up to the game was everywhere. If Brown heard â&#x20AC;&#x153;Megatronâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nickname â&#x20AC;&#x201D; once during the week, he heard it hundreds of times. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not a lot was written and said about [Brown], of course,â&#x20AC;? Tomlin said. Johnson had a better statistical day with six catches for 179 yards and one touchdown despite, improbably, being held without a catch in the second half. That was okay with Brown. He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just leave Heinz Field with Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prized jersey. He and his teammates went home with a significant win, one that pulled them to the fringe of relevancy in the AFC playoff picture. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This game isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t about proving yourself to any individual,â&#x20AC;? Brown said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about team â&#x20AC;Ś Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m always the same no matter who weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re playing. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just trying to will my team to win.â&#x20AC;? Brown did a great job of it against the Lions. Who knows what heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do Sunday when the Steelers play in Cleveland? The feeling here is his best is yet to come.

The Administration Building at the Cresson TB Sanatorium was designed in Tudor style to honor Scottishborn Andrew Carnegie, donor of the property. Carnegie had planned to build his â&#x20AC;&#x153;American Castleâ&#x20AC;? on the 500 acre track he owned on top of the Allegheny Mountain. However, following the death of his mother, who died in Cresson, Carnegie abandoned the plan and sold the property to the state for one dollar.

this town in 25 to 30 years in malice,â&#x20AC;? Salvatore Taranto offered. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need any more weapons.â&#x20AC;? Jarvis responded, â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are two towns and we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get a second rifle, yet we have money for anything else.â&#x20AC;? Again the argument broke out between Jarvis and Certo about what good is a gun without bullets,

with the mayor finally saying something about getting bullets in December. Taranto restated his opinion that the town doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need another gun and that it has nothing to do with the budget. Jarvis restated that the council always votes â&#x20AC;&#x153;noâ&#x20AC;? to her request for a second rifle. James Sabella asked for the roll call on the motion so that the meeting could continue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not done, Jimmy,â&#x20AC;? Jarvis exclaimed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Make a motion,â&#x20AC;? Taranto told

Jarvis, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll vote it down again.â&#x20AC;? It was then stated that the street and police departments were both receiving three percent pay increases so the council â&#x20AC;&#x153;didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget anybody.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you think she deserves it?â&#x20AC;? Sabella asked the mayor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I said no offense, Dee,â&#x20AC;? Jarvis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She puts in a lot of time,â&#x20AC;? Certo reiterated. Jarvis responded, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not saying she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. She does a good job.â&#x20AC;? Sabella asked again for a roll call

on the motion. The mayor stated she had another question on the motion before they moved on. She wondered why there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a pay increase when officers were promoted. It was argued between the mayor and the council about the terms of the Fraternal Order of Police contract. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Can we have a roll call?â&#x20AC;? Sabella demanded. Ignoring him, Taranto said they couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do anything because of the contract. Jarvis exclaimed that two officers have already left their posi-

tions here. Taranto told her that they left to better themselves. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Things were said when they left,â&#x20AC;? Jarvis said. The council members asked what more they could do; they thanked the men for their service, did they want a parade, too? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We lost no full-time officers before we had this mayor,â&#x20AC;? Taranto said. Sabella got his wish and roll call was taken; the borough managerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s raise was unanimously approved by all of the present council members.
