PennDOT outlines summer work plans

By Ron Portash

of Mainline Newspapers

On April 30, District 9 of The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation held its 20th annual Cambria County Municipal Outreach Conference in Ebensburg to inform local governments of planned road work and address concerns raised by the local government officials. District 9, headquartered in Hollidaysburg, covers six counties of southwestern Pennsylvania: Bedford, Blair, Cambria, Fulton, Huntingdon and Somerset. Thomas Prestash, the district executive, addressed the gathering of nearly 50 local borough council members, township supervisors, roadmasters and directors of public works at the conference. Prestash began by outlining PennDOT priorities; first and foremost are the roads that are part of the National Highway System, including interstates like I-99 and state routes such as Route 22, 30 and 56 in Cambria County, with bridges on these roads getting the highest priority. The second priority is given to bridges that carry more than 2,000 vehicles a day. State highways that carry less than 2,000 vehicles a day get the lowest priority. Prestash explained that each project proposal is reviewed for safety improvements and economic feasibility. Of the 2,084 bridges in the six-county area, only 2.8 percent are listed as structurally deficient. As part of the state’s private-public partnership to replace 553 bridges in the three-year span of 2015 to

2018, District 9 began with 48 on the Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. Of those 48, only three in Cambria County were listed: two on State Route 160 near Sidman and one near Prince Gallitzin State Park. Two of the three have been completed. The remaining Rapid Bridge Replacement Project on SR 160 near Humbert Road is scheduled to begin at the end of May or early June and is to be completed by September. The Rapid Bridge Replacement Project allows for quick replacement of small bridges with precast concrete assemblies. One problem area Prestash pointed out to the attendees is that PennDOT was audited under the 1971 Federal Highway Beautification Act. This audit SEE PLANS, PAGE 6

Cambria County Historical Society to offer History Shorts

PAGE 2 - Thursday, May 10, 2018 - MAINLINE EXTRA

By Kristin Baudoux

of Mainline Newspapers

The Cambria County Historical Society is offering the third lecture of its spring lecture series. This lecture is a “History Shorts� program, where four speakers will each talk about a different topic on local history. The event is scheduled for 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 16, at the Kimball Conference Center on West High Street in Ebensburg. Each speaker will present for about 15 minutes to provide attendees with an overview of local history subjects in about one hour. Allie Kaelin of the historical society said these History Shorts have been popular in the past. “We’ve done History Shorts about two years,� said Kaelin. “They tend to be really popular.� On deck for this lecture is Gary Bradley, who will talk about St. John’s Catholic Orphanage once located in Cresson. Dave Huber will then discuss the 11 hangings that occured in the former Cambria County Jail. While many of these hangings were small events, others were large happenings in town that required a ticket to attend. Adam Bolton will then present on the Southern Cambria Railway Crash of 1916. This infamous crash killed 25 and injured 63 people in a head-on collision on the Southern Cambria Traction line between Echo and Brookdale. Lastly, Jim Hostetler will discuss the time before Cambria County came to be. Hostetler will explore the Native American path known to white settlers at the Kittanning Trail, which is the setting for several stories of local lore and legends. Earlier this year, the Cambria County Historical Society presented a lecture on the year 1968. The presenter explored the significant events that happened 50 years ago and how they relate to today. The society also hosted a “show and tell� night last month. Attendees were encouraged to bring items of historical significance to the event and talk about the items. The historical society will host more lectures in the fall later this year.

Moore looking toward Central Cambria’s future

By Kristin Baudoux

of Mainline Newspapers

For the past few months, Jason Moore has been the acting superintendent at Central Cambria School District, but at April’s school board meeting, Moore was officially announced as the district’s superintendent. Moore has been employed with the district for four years and was originally hired as the school’s curriculum director before being tapped as acting superintendent. Before being hired at Central Cambria, Moore worked in the Greater Johnstown School District for 12 years as both a teacher and a principal. “My experience here has always been fantastic,� said Moore about his time at Central Cambria. “We have great kids, great parents and great faculty.� Though Moore didn’t officially take over the position until April, he has plans for the school for the rest of the year and for the upcoming year. One of his goals is to increase course offerings at the school. “We’re looking at having more options for the students,� said Moore. Moore wants to have more STEM [science, technology, engineering and math] classes available for the high school students. One program he is looking to implement is through the Inventionland Institute based out of Pittsburgh. According to its website, “Inventionland is America’s largest invention factory, where corporations and major retailers come for their innovative new product lines.� Inventionland offers a nine-

step discovery method curriculum for schools that fosters creativity and innovation. Moore said that through this curriculum, students can go through the process of creating and marketing their own products using the core concepts of STEM education. On top of the additional STEM programs, Moore also wants to expand the school’s Advanced Placement courses and explore more dual-enrollment opportunities. Moore also is dedicated to revamping the district’s curriculum to prepare students for upcoming careers and technology. “It’s [curriculum] is a fluid thing. It changes with the times,� said Moore. Another issue Moore wants to tackle is school safety and he wants to know whether the students feel safe attending school every day. “We’re taking a hard look at school safety,� said Moore. “We want to know what’s the perception of the students.� Moore hopes to look at safety issues by getting input from the students. The schools are also undergoing several construction projects. Jackson Elementary’s main office will be revamped to improve school safety and privacy. The high school is also slated for exterior renovations in the coming months. Overall, Moore said he is ready to take on the challenges of the position. “I’m looking forward to the next five or 10 years,� said Moore. “I’m always optimistic.�

Central Cambria School Board makes administrative changes PAGE 4 - Thursday, May 10, 2018 - MAINLINE EXTRA

By Allie Garver

of Mainline Newspapers

Since the resignation of former Central Cambria superintendent Vincent DiLeo, the district has been running with administrators “acting” in their respective positions. At last month’s meeting, the board approved the hiring of Jason Moore as the superintendent. The May 7 meeting brought more changes to the administrative positions. Dr. Tricia Murin, who served as

the Jackson Elementary principal and the high school principal will now be the curriculum director for the entire district. There were also two lateral moves made in the district with Christopher Santini getting approval to move into the position of high school principal. Previously, Santini was the middle school principal. The final lateral move was with Joseph Strittmatter. Last year, Strittmatter was moved from the technology director position to the

principal at Jackson Elementary. Strittmatter will be the middle school principal next school year. Murin, Santini and Strittmatter will begin their new employment effective July 1, 2018. The school board also approved the posting, advertising and interviewing for the vacant Jackson Elementary principal position. Moving along to other staff changes, the board approved the retirement of paraprofessional II Angela Kupchella who was in the special education department.

Kupchella worked at the school from 2003 through 2018. Seth O’Brien had a change in his employment status, effective the start of the 2018-2019 school year. O’Brien was a long-term social studies substitute teacher and was hired as a full-time teacher. A new face in the middle school next school year will be Emily Paonesa who was hired as an English teacher, effective the start of 2018-2019 school year. Patricia Urgolites, who served as a part-time permanent housekeep-

er at the middle school, was approved to move to the high school as the attendance secretary. In other personnel matters, the school board approved the hiring of temporary summer help for maintenance projects, grounds upkeep and building cleaning. The hiring cannot exceed 30 workers. The board also approved the hiring of summer pool workers. Six of the returning adult summer employees will be considered “summer worker team leaders.”

completed the revisions requested and they were delivered on April 12.” According to Wray, the reason the revision process took so long is because three full sets of project plans were requested, which is 63 sheets. He said it takes some time to get the proper documents together. “All of the erosion control plan issues have been resolved,” added Wray. The post-construction stormwater management plan, which goes in conjunction with the erosion control plan, had planned revisions verbally

requested April 16, said Wray. The revisions were sent April 15, and additional comments followed. “We had a meeting with the conservation district on [April 24] on additional revisions they were requesting, and those were delivered on the afternoon of [April 24],” said Wray. With those revisions taken care of, Wray is just waiting for the approval letter from the conservation district. The Water Quality Management Part II permit is still outstanding. According to Wray, BVMA’s PENNVEST representative Dan Mikesic

planned to get into contact with the Department of Environmental Protection out of Pittsburgh to see if the permit is close to being approved. Chairman Mike Pisarcik asked if the outstanding permit will affect the PENNVEST funding. “We have to have that permit in place for closing,” said Wray. “That’s after we go through the bidding and everything.” The deadline for the PENNVEST application was May 2. Wray explained that July 18 is the PENNVEST board meeting, which is when the BVMA will find out

what the offer for funding is, and if the authority approves the amount received, bids would be opened at the August meeting. A December loan closing would then occur as well as a notice to proceed with the project, added Wray. Mike Palovich made a motion to approve the resolution to apply for the PENNVEST funding in the amount of $7,176,000 for the project. John Shestak seconded the motion. Palovich then made a motion to sign the letter of responsibility for PENNVEST. Desmond Warzel seconded the motion.

members to meet with local police, firemen and emergency medical service personnel to learn more about what they do and break down the walls that may exist between them. Three local fire companies, as well as a multitude of local police depart-

ments and EMS personnel were in attendance for the event. They brought their vehicles so the community could have a closer look at a police car, ambulance and fire truck in a safe, non-emergency situation. The event also featured games, crafts and face painting for children,

information on emergency services and food for attendees. Junior Girl Scout Troop 46463 leader Kim Laverick said the troop came up with the event as a form of community outreach when the girls were working toward achieving their Bronze Awards.

The Bronze Award, the highest honor a Girl Scout Junior can achieve, represents how Girl Scouts can use their skills and interests to take action and make a difference in their communities.

The fourth annual National Day of Prayer ceremony was held May 3 at the Northern Cambria Borough building, and was led by Pastor Fred Catchpole of Hope Springs Church. Members of the Northern Cambria Borough Council, Ministerium and community gathered together to pray for the figures in authority, members of emergency medical services, the community and the nation. The National Day of Prayer was officially created in 1952 through a joint resolution of Congress and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. The law was then

amended in 1988, by both the House of Representatives and the Senate, and signed into law by President Ronald Reagan Thursday, May 5, 1988, denoting the first Thursday of May as a day of national prayer. This year, the theme of the National Day of Prayer was “Pray for America UNITY.” “Unity. We need it in church, outside of church, everywhere,” Catchpole said. The National Day of Prayer website said the goal of the day is “that individuals, churches and spiritual leaders in America will humble ourselves and unify in prevailing prayer for the next great move of God in America.”

Laverick said the event has grown much bigger than what they expected, and they are happy to see the community support their local heroes who keep them and their community safe. Girl Scout Mya Calhoun said the event helps her and others realize these figures in uniforms are just everyday people who are there to protect you if you need it.

At the Northern Cambria National Day of Prayer ceremony, which began with a rendition of “America the Beautiful,” members of the ministerium led prayers for intentions with individuals and community organizations in mind. Pastor Clint Pearsall of Calvary Evangelical Church prayed for the nation, president, lawmakers, the military and ambulance service members. He asked that those in authority who help defend the weak, poor, and oppressed have the “wisdom, discretion and strength to lead.” He also thanked and prayed for those who give of themselves to help save others in the ambulance services. Fr. Christ Bauman of St. Andrew

“When you see things on TV, it can be scary, but if you know what they do it makes you realize, ‘Hey, they are not so bad,’” Calhoun said. “It’s been very informative.” The event also featured demonstrations by the Madera Fire Company search and rescue team, which featured dogs tracking a “lost” child to show how they would help in a missing persons case. Cpl. Lucia of the Pennsylvania State Police gave a demonstration with his explosive sniffing dog, and

the Apostle Anglican Church prayed for the unity and fellowship of borough council and mayor Scott Litzinger to make good decisions for the welfare of the community. “Today we come together with one thing in common, a deep held love for this community,” Bauman said. Nancy Lockard of Child Evangelism Fellowship prayed for the safety of children in and out of schools, the school leaders to protect and give wisdom and intentions about abortion. Pastor Russ Havener of Garman Church of God prayed for the borough police and fire companies. He prayed for their safety in the line of duty as they protect others and

Smokey Bear stopped by to teach attendees about fire safety. The event provided an opportunity for the community to support their heroes, and gave these professionals a venue to do outreach and educate people about aspects of their job that could, hopefully, build trust between the community and fire, EMS and police personnel. “Things like this are really great,” said Tricia Rittenhouse of the Madera Fire Company search and rescue team. “It lets even the local

asked that they have “discretion and wisdom” and “become examples for kindness and help that can reflect in others they affect.” Catchpole said he is happy to lead this event every year and have a local ceremony oriented to the Northern Cambria community. He said he feels the community’s ministerium has come together over the past few years to accomplish great things. In his closing prayer, he echoed this sentiment by calling for more good to come to the area. “The pastors of this community of Northern Cambria are committed to see God do work in our area and bring a revival to Northern Cambria.”

authorities know we are here and they can give us a call if they need us.” “This event is really about community. You want everyone to feel safe these days, so this allows them to meet the police, EMS and firemen so they are not so timid around them,” Laverick said. Laverick said she was happy with this year’s turnout and positive response. She and the troop members hope to continue this day for the community for as long as they can.

involved all 67 counties, and concerned the enforcement of private signs on state right-of-ways. Signs for businesses or other types of advertisements or endorsements are prohibited when permanently or temporarily placed on the rightof-way of a state road. PennDOT is informing the sign owners of possible violations and is working with the owners to resolve the issues. If PennDOT does not meet compliance standards, the department could lose some or all of its federal highway funding. According to Prestash, PennDOT District 9 will pave 156 miles of roadway, sealcoat 342 miles and repair or replace 40 bridges. In Cambria County, this includes concrete patching and repair of Route 219 from Ebensburg north toward Carrolltown, along with rehabilitation of the two bridges on 219 over SR 422 and Colver Road (SR 4002). This project and the Chestnut Street bridge replacement in Nanty Glo Borough on SR 271 are well under way. Additionally, a culvert replacement project on Tripoli Road in Cambria Township will impact travel between Ebensburg and Colver. PennDOT is also planning to replace five traffic lights in Ebensburg Borough and Cambria Township. Three traffic lights will be replaced along SR 22 at the intersections of South Center

Street, Beulah Road and Mini Mall Road. In Ebensburg Borough, traffic lights at the intersection of Center and High streets along with the traffic light at West High Street and Ben Franklin Highway (SR 422) will be replaced. The traffic signal in Wilmore Borough at SR 53 and SR 160 will be replaced. The entire intersection in Wilmore is undergoing review to be redesigned to improve safety and traffic flow. In Allegheny and Clearfield townships SR 1011 from outside of Syberton to Chest Springs will undergo resurfacing along with SR 1023 north of Chest Springs through St. Augustine to SR 53 near Frugality. This resurfacing project will continue from that intersection north on SR 1029 to the intersection of Roseland Road near Glasgow. Indiana County PennDOT will be resurfacing a section of U.S. Route 22 that will extend slightly into Cambria County. The Moxham bridge replacement project on SR 403 in Johnstown is entering its second year. Five traffic signals on Scalp Avenue in Richland Township will be replaced. The Creslo section of Adams Township near the Forest Hills schools also will undergo phase four of the Safe School Sidewalk Enhancement Project. PennDOT is planning several road sealcoating projects in the

area. The sealcoat projects are designed to protect the road surface and increase durability and safety. The sealcoats are applied on a rotating, four-to-five year basis. The majority of these projects will occur in the Forest Hills School District areas this summer. Nine portions of roads in Adams, Croyle and Summerhill townships are scheduled to be sealcoated this year. This includes portions of New Germany Road, Wilmore Road and Frankstown Road/Fieldstone Avenue from South Fork to the Blair County line in Portage Township. Additionally, in the Portage area, Dulancey Drive from Cooney Road to the SR 53 intersection in the Scanlon Hill section of Washington Township is scheduled for sealcoating.

In the Carrolltown area, Plank Road from the Ebensburg Borough line north to the intersection with SR 219, portions of Carroll Street and Deveaux Street and SR 553 from the intersection with SR 219 to the Indiana County line will undergo sealcoating. A number of other highway safety and drainage improvements projects will be done as weather and time permit. Future projects were discussed by Vince Greenland, PennDOT District 9 assistant district executive. These projects include redesign of the intersection of SR 756 at Elton Road. This project will realign the road to create a near 90 degree intersection. This redesign will cause a number of homes to be demolished so the intersection can

become safer with better visibility and ease of assess. The Cloverleaf in Geistown will, in the future, undergo a major redesign so the multiple intersections will come together in a roundabout design. Also in the planning stages is a redesign of SR 291 and Brick Road and a redesign of Sunset Road (SR 4013) from SR 219 to SR 36 to increase safety and reduce curves and slopes. Additionally, a redesign of the Mt. Hope intersection near the Adams/Richland Township line is planned for 2019. Clapboard Run will be relocated onto Frankstown Road at a 90 degree intersection away from Solomon Run and Ragers Hill Road. Other projects expected in the future are still in the research stage and no details could be provided.

Susquehanna Township talks Francis Street bridge progress

By Amber Stich

of Mainline Newspapers

The Francis Street Bridge was again a major topic discussed at the Susquehanna Township Supervisors meeting May 1. Residents have addressed the supervisors since the Troy Street bridge was closed due to structural concerns. Residents continued to express concern with the extended closure of the Troy Street bridge and with the supervisors repairing the

Francis Street bridge first. The supervisors have expressed their understanding and said they are trying everything they can to address the issue. The township supervisors received a grant for the Francis Street bridge, which is why that project is moving forward, but no grant money was received to repair Troy Street bridge. This month, the supervisors said they had positive news regarding the current Francis Street bridge project. The engineer said the drawings for the

project are finally complete and they are only waiting on three easements, before work can begin on the bridge. Chairman Terry Stafford mentioned that the original plan had to be altered to adjust for the gas wells in the area of the bridge. Besides the easements, the township should be accepting the final cost on the project soon, which, he said, means the project “is real close to a go.” Before the Francis Street bridge is closed for construction, a temporary bridge or

cover will be installed over the Troy Street bridge to allow for traffic during the project. The engineer said the temporary bridge should be able to handle most vehicles, including fire trucks, but he said they will defer to the experts and ensure that it is properly weight-restricted for its strength. This will allow residents to use the Troy Street bridge during the project until the township gets the money to replace it with a more permanent structure.

“Last summer, they contacted us and told us what size risers to get so we got them in October,” said Pisarcik. “Well, today, they called me and said they need 2inch risers.” On the paperwork Pisarcik received last year, it stated that the authority would need 1 1/2 inch risers. The problem was

resolved with some help from engineer Richard Wray. During the March meeting, Pisarcik said that he had to purchase new gas detection equipment because the sensors on the old one were bad. “We did get our gas detection equipment and we’ve all been trained on gas detection,” said

Pisarcik. The final item Pisarcik had was leak detection with the manholes. He received a complaint of a sewer smell on Jackson Street in Vintondale, and he found that water was “just shooting right into the manhole.” “It’s one of those things that

“We’ve been working very hard on these, pushing the engineer, pushing the solicitor,” Stafford said. “Nobody wants this bridge in more than we do. I know it’s been a long time for you guys down there, and we are sorry for that, but it takes time to deal with this stuff. Hopefully, we are working in the right direction, and things are starting to go our way.” The supervisors hope to have more information and good news about the bridge project at their next monthly meeting.

BVMA fixes leaking lines, trained on gas detection By Allie Garver

of Mainline Newspapers

At the April 25 Blacklick Valley Municipal Authority meeting, chairman Mike Pisarcik explained what has been going on with the system over the past month. “We fixed a 10-inch water line in Twin Rocks,” said Pisarcik. “That line there has been leaking since the contractors put the new valves in, so that’s a twoyear leak we found there. We figured that leak was close to [losing] 7,000 [gallons] a day.” Also in Twin Rocks, Pisarcik discovered the problem along Route 271. Pisarcik stated that a 6-inch line went under the road and onto the left side with only two shut-offs. “I knew we had problems underneath that road with leakage,” said Pisarcik. “We put a 6inch saddle on there with a 2inch corp stop and put a blow off there.” The line will be a “dead end shot” now so when the lines are flushed it can be blown out. Moving on to the Vintondale side of the system, Pisarcik said that there was a “snag” with risers for the paving being done on Main Street.

we’re going to constantly be working on them to try and keep them sealed,” added Pisarcik. With no other business to discuss, the meeting was adjourned. The next BVMA meeting will be held on Wednesday, May 30, at 6 p.m. in the Vintondale Borough Building.

Missing WWII sailor from Portage may have been located By Ron Portash

of Mainline Newspapers

One of many missing World War II servicemen may have been located after 72 years. The remains of a TBM Avenger torpedo bomber have been found near an island in the Pacific Ocean. Officials from the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA) contacted the family of former Portage resident Walter E. “Bert� Mintus in December 2017. On July 27, 1944, an Avenger containing a crew of three, including Mintus, disappeared after a bombing attack in the Palau archipelago. Several years ago, Lisa Fedorka, of Texas, was researching her family tree on a genealogy website and flagged a connection to Walter Mintus. In 2017, DPAA contacted Fedorka and her husband, Paul, to see if she was related to Mintus. DPAA also asked for a second relative because they needed several DNA samples to help identify one of the human remains found in the wreckage of a TBM located merely 300 yards from the mangrove jungles of Aimeliik in the Republic of Palau. Although Chuck Prichard, director of public information at DPAA, could not confirm that the human remains found were Mintus, pilot Richard Houle and an unnamed turret gunner, research papers and new articles published in 2014 and 2015 indicate a TBM Avenger and F6F Hellcat fighter were located within days of each other in Palau. Mintus’ nephew, Richard Kozak, of Conway Pa., who provided the second required DNA sample, stated that the disappearance of his uncle has haunted the family, especially Walter’s stepsister Caroline, until the day she died. As a young man growing up on Jamestown Road in the Sonman section of Portage Township, 1940 census records show Walter Mintus was 18 years old, working as a coal miner and living with his parents, John and Caroline, along with his brothers, Thomas and Leonard. Like many young, patriotic men of the time, Walter Mintus entered the Navy to serve his country after the surprise attack at Pearl Harbor. After completing basic training, Walter went on to train as a radio operator/gunner for

the TBF/TBM aircraft. Mintus was assigned to the torpedo squadron VT-51 on the light carrier San Jacinto. On that fateful day of July 27, 1944, the TBM took off. Somewhere over Ngerekebesang Island of the Republic of Palau, the plane came under fire, lost a wing and crashed into the ocean. Mintus’ position as radioman gunner required him to fire a single .30 caliber machine gun through a rear facing “tunnel� behind the bomb bay of the aircraft. The original vacuum tube radio equipment Mintus was trained to operate was massive, especially by today’s standards, and it filled the whole glass canopy to the rear of the pilot and ahead of the gun turret. These radios were accessible for adjustment and repair through a “tunnel� within the fuselage radioman’s position. The only exit for the radioman and turret gunner was through a door in the side of the aircraft. If that squadron and carrier sound familiar, that is the same squadron and carrier that former President George H.W. Bush was flying less than three months later when he was shot down and rescued by the U.S. submarine Finback. In 14 months, from March 1944 to May 1945, 217 planes from the Army, Navy and Marine Corps were shot down or unaccounted for in the Palau area. Since 1993, Project Recover has found 36 American planes, and a few dozen Japanese aircraft. Project Recover’s goal is to find the final underwater resting places of all Americans missing in action since World War II. Upon locating this TBM Avenger and F6F aircraft, Project Recover provided detailed information about the discovered wrecks and possible links to airmen listed as missing in action to the Department of Defense’s Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency. DPAA is tasked with recovery and repatriation efforts, including notifying the families of these MIAs. Project Recover is a partnership among researchers at the University of Delaware’s College of Earth, Ocean and Environment, Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California-San Diego, and the

BentProp Project, an MIA research organization. The search for the Avenger and its crew lasted nine years. Using local stories and contacts, historical archives, interviews with veterans and ship and squadron logs, the researchers determined approximately where the plane went down, but not enough to pinpoint the exact location. For two months researchers used high-tech equipment, like side scanner sonar, which is an underwater robot shaped like a torpedo and continuously goes back and forth, to scour the area. The Avenger was found March 24, 2014. The discovery team held a ceremony April 1 of that year to honor the fallen heroes in the wreckage. According to a statement from the Scripps Institution, the more than 5-ton TBM-1C Avenger is one of many downed aircraft scattered underneath Palau’s waters. The model Project Recover found was one of more than 2,300 manufactured by General Motors during the war, with the Grumman Corporation and GM building thousands more TBM and TBF Avengers through the war and into the 1960s. In addition to the aircraft lost in Palau, the remains of an estimated 80 to 100 U.S. service members are dispersed throughout the island country’s lagoons and reefs. For Rich Kozak, the memories of his uncle Bert are still fond, from playing with him in the hay barn to giving the kids rides on his Indian motorcycle. Kozak was only six years old when the family received the telegram stating that Mintus was missing in action. As a loving son, Mintus recorded a message onto a phonograph record and mailed it home prior to shipping out. Kozak remembers the family playing the message repeatedly on the day the Navy sent the notification. “There was a lot of crying that day,� Kozak said. In 2003, Kozak’s sister, Agnes Phillips, wrote to Mintus’ squadron mate and former President George H.W. Bush seeking more information on her uncle’s disappearance. Bush sent back a letter detailing what he

could remember about “your uncle, the heroic Walter Mintus.� He went on to say, “Your uncle went on a mission to Palau on 27 July 1944 with Lt. (Roland Eichard) Houle and they never returned...they were shot down. I was shot down on 2 Sept. 1944 and lost both of my crewmen.� While in the White House, George H.W. Bush tried to locate the surviving members and relatives of the deceased of squadron VT-51. Prichard said in a telephone interview that little information could be confirmed at this point if the Avenger found actually was that of Mintus, Houle and an unidentified squadron mate. DPAA is conducting DNA testing, and as of Monday, May 7, the identities of the remains found have not been confirmed. Kozak is hopeful that he and the surviv-

ing family members of Uncle Bert can have closure. An article on LiveScience.com details the recovery efforts of the United States Naval ship Salvor, a Navy rescue and salvage ship at the excavation site. The recovery team completed its mission Feb. 25 of this year, working for 45 days in 2-hour shifts. Both DPAA and the United Sates Navy Pacific 7th Fleet won’t release identity of the human remains until it is verified and next of kin are notified. Including the crew of three from the located Avenger, there are 72,941 soldiers still missing from World War II. Hope remains with Walter Mintus’ family that this discovery of the aircraft can finally answer the haunting question that has lingered for nearly 74 years: what happened to Bert Mintus that day?

Nanty Glo Water Authority operator addresses main line washout PAGE 10 - Thursday, May 10, 2018 - MAINLINE EXTRA

By Allie Garver

of Mainline Newspapers

A washout on a main water line from Allie Buck Road to the Nanty Glo Water Authority’s treatment plant was brought up by operator Larry Krampy at the May 2 meeting. A washout means that the line is exposed, explained Krampy. “It’s about eight or 10 feet long,� said Krampy. “As of right now, we can’t get to it [because] it’s too swampy. We’ll tear up people’s yards.� Krampy said that he’s aware

that the water authority has an easement for the water line, but he wants to be considerate and wait until that area dries up. “How many gallons do you think [we’re losing]?� asked board member Steve Mikesic. Krampy said that just the line is exposed and there is no leak. Engineer Brian Shura said that since the weather is warming up, there shouldn’t be a problem with freezing temperatures affecting the line. Board member Diane Holby asked how something like that would happen.

Krampy said that all of the heavy rain covering the area recently eroded the dirt over the line. “We measured the line, and it was about 3 foot of dirt that was washed out,� said Krampy. “It had a legitimate amount of cover on it. It is an issue and we have to get back into it.� In other matters, Krampy asked when the authority wants to pave the spots on the road where leaks were fixed during the winter. Davis, Edwards, Locust, Roberts and Race streets all need paved.

“Do you want to go private contractor or do you want to go borough?� asked Krampy. Krampy added that he isn’t sure what the agreement is with having the borough workers do the paving as far as time and materials are concerned. According to Krampy, there have been times where the authority hired a private contractor and there have been times when the borough workers did the paving. “We don’t know what you guys want to do with it,� stated Krampy. “It’s early in the sea-

son, so you have time to talk about it and everything like that.� Krampy added that Edwards and Locust streets both have large areas that need paved. The final item Krampy had was the flushing of the lines from May 7 through May 18 in Nanty Glo and May 18 and 19 in Revloc. He will be flushing during the day rather than at night because he wants to teach assistant operator Tom Williamson and laborer Donny Thomas how to flush.

some Portage Area High School students, will be planting the seedlings on the authority’s watershed properties in the near future. The Department of Environmental Protection requested additional information for the authority’s emergency action plan. The authority gave permission to the engineer to pursue funding for the additional required engineering work through the Mariner East Pipeline Grant Program. The program was developed as a way to let communities impacted by the environmental violations during construction of the

Sunoco pipeline use the fine money. The authority is required to have an emergency action plan in the event of a catastrophe. These plans are required to be submitted to the DEP in conjunction with the Pa. Emergency Management Agency. These plans have been in place for decades and are updated periodically. The authority received the annual lease payment of $2,000 from Duke Energy for a transmission line easement in the watershed area. Fund and royalty payments for several windmill and other energy corpora-

tions are placed in the authority’s capital reserve for future

upgrades and reconstruction projects.

Portage Municipal Authority discusses summer projects By Ron Portash

of Mainline Newspapers

At the Portage Municipal Authority meeting held May 3, waterline replacement projects for the coming weeks were discussed. The first, expected to start this week, is the line replacement and improvement along Groggin Lane off of Portage Street in the Jamestown section of Portage Township. The current line will be replaced with a larger diameter supply line and connected to a loop to ensure a constant pressure flow. The increase in the diameter of the water line will allow for any future expansion of additional homes in that area. A fire hydrant was discussed to be added to the line to improve fire fighting access to the water supply in that area. After the completion of the Groggin Lane project, Frazer Street in Martindale is to be replaced and upgraded. This will allow for an increase in water supply for local homes. After this project, line replacement on Meadow Lane in Jamestown is scheduled. According to authority superintendent Ron Cadwallader, these projects are dependent on the weather and emergencies like line breaks. No definite timeline for the work can be determined. Cadwallader said that the authority received 165 Northern Red Oak seedlings from the Pennsylvania Game Commission at no cost. The Trout Run Watershed Association, with the help of

An issue was broached at the Nanty Glo Water Authorityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s May 2 meeting about water meters in regard to apartment buildings and how that affects revenue for the authority. An example board member Diane Holby gave is when one building contains five apartments but only has one water meter. There are several cases similar to this situation in Nanty Glo, according to Holby. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re losing a lot of money,â&#x20AC;? said board member Lynne Stock.

At the May Clearfield Township meeting, the supervisors focused on purchasing a new truck for the township crew. The supervisors were having issues with the old truck and officially decided to look into pricing on a new vehicle at last monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting. Chairman David Kibler presented the other supervisors with a multitude of bids on both the purchase of a truck as well as separate bids for the purchase of a bed. After examining the pros and cons of going with a super cab or a crew cab model and the type of bed for the truck, the supervisors looked at all of the bids to make a decision. Kibler said regardless of what the supervisors decided to go with, all of the trucks he looked at had the capacity to hook onto their plow and spreader models, so they would work well with the townshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s existing equipment.

[apartment] would pay a minimum,â&#x20AC;? said Svirsko. The minimum fee, added Krampy, is $30. Right now, the authority is billing buildings with separate apartments and one meter by charging for 4,000 gallons of water usage, even if there are four apartments in that one billing. What they should be charging, said engineer Brian Shura, is for 16,000 gallons of water and charging each apartment the minimum fee. Krampy suggested having Svirsko write up specific rules and regulations so the landlords will have to come into compliance when the

building is sold. Svirsko said that it should state in the rules and regulations that a â&#x20AC;&#x153;multiple dwelling unit with one meter [is] not in compliance with rules and regulations.â&#x20AC;? Holby asked if they can make that a rule now so that certain buildings can come into compliance soon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would plan into it instead of just jumping into it at a meeting,â&#x20AC;? said Svirsko. Svirsko will work on a section in the rules and regulations about multiple dwelling units. The board members and Krampy will create a list of buildings with multiple apartments but only one meter and give it to Svirsko.

The supervisors decided to go with a crew cab gas model truck from Stuckey Ford at a cost of $40,853 and a bid for a stainless steel bed from U.S. Municipal for $23,995. The supervisors said that while the crew cab was slightly more expensive, it would allow more versatility for storage or for transporting workers to job sites. There was some discussion as to why the supervisors chose gas instead of diesel for the truck, and the supervisors said that diesel trucks seem to have more issues,

break down more and cost more for fuel. Kibler pointed out that PennDOT and UPS are using more gas vehicles now. Before moving on, vice-chairman Joseph Vescovi suggested the supervisors look at how much they could get for the old truck in trade-in value to help with the cost of the vehicle. The supervisors said they would look into that during the purchase. There was also discussion about paying for a portion of the truck from their liquid fuels due to the equipment

allowance. On building maintenance issues, supervisor Robert Carl said a piece of metal siding would need repaired soon so water damage would not happen. The supervisors approved the repair. Lastly, the supervisors talked about hiring an as-needed position to help their current crew, as one employee currently has an injured shoulder and will need help mowing grass. The supervisors agreed to look into their options for the position.
