Whom do I contact if I live along a state route and want to have my driveway paved? A. Contact the Highway Occupancy Permit Inspector assigned to the PennDOT maintenance office for your county of residence. In many cases, paving of a driveway is considered “maintenance only” and it would be only necessary to have the proper traffic control to do the work. It is always necessary to contact the PennDOT permit inspector first to determine if this is your situation. In Columbia, Montour and Northumberland counties, the permit inspector can be reached at 275-0441. Q. When is a permit required and how long is the process? A. When a driveway, local road or drainage facility or structure is constructed or altered within state highway right-of-way and may alter or need to be connected to a PennDOT drainage facility, a permit is required. It may take 30-90 days for a permit to be issued. Q. My township or borough has notified me of necessary sidewalk and/ or curb replacement; however, I live along a state route. A. Contact the Highway Occupancy Permit (HOP) Inspector in the appropriate PennDOT county maintenance office. Verify that the item in question is a Highway Occupancy Permit application. Provide the application number, county, state route number and your name. PennDOT has a 60day period in which to review each application. If the HOP application and proposed design follow the regulation and requirements, then the review generally takes less time. Sometimes an application will need to be reviewed by additional units depending upon the location and nature of work, such as within a planned construction area.

Our Commitment to You: Safe Operation At PPL’s Susquehanna nuclear plant, we take our responsibility to operate safely seriously. The safety of our plant neighbors and our employees is our top priority. We owe that to you.

We have comprehensive programs for maintaining, testing and upgrading equipment at the Susquehanna plant. Thorough inspections of plant components are done on a regular basis to ensure that the plant will continue to operate safely. We learn from experiences at our plant and other plants to improve operations. We’re proud of our safety record. It’s a tribute to the skill and dedication of our employees who recently completed a successful refueling and maintenance outage on Unit 2 that included the unexpected challenge of replacing turbine blades as well as completing more than 2,500 maintenance tasks and equipment upgrades. We’re also proud of our employees who contribute countless hours as volunteers in community organizations around the area. You’ll see them coaching youth sports, leading Scout groups, serving as elected officials, volunteering for fire and ambulance companies, and leading many groups that work to better local communities.

Music and Theater Bloomsburg Theatre Ensemble • The Landlover: A Pirate Musical (annual Family Summer Show), through July 31 An original play by Richard Cannaday; co-directed by James Goode and Richard Cannaday Times are tough for the crew of the pirate ship, Ma’Lady. Food is scarce, and excitement even scarcer. When their captain, John Flotsam, the last of the great pirates, loses his most prized possession, it’s up to the crew to go on land and get it back. A chance encounter with a fast-talking landlubber leads to an adventure that will alter these young pirates’ lives forever! Featuring an original script and songs by Cannaday, creator of “Ancient Greek Idol,” “The Landlover” is a boat-rocking, swashbuckling, plank walking good time for the whole family! Arrrgh! • The Guys (bonus show), Sept. 8-11 By Anne Nelson; directed by Daniel Roth The catastrophic events of the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, instantly and permanently altered countless lives, the landscape of the greatest city on Earth, and how we as a nation are perceived by our global neighbors. 343 NYC firefighters died in the line of duty that day. “The Guys” is an intimate and timeless drama about seemingly ordinary people called to perform extraordinary acts of courage and make the ultimate sacrifice. • Doubt, a Parable, Sept. 29-Oct. 16 By John Patrick Shanley; directed by James Goode The office of a Catholic School in the Bronx, 1964, transforms into a field of battle when the Sister principal confronts the Parish priest about his relationship with an eighth grader. Faced with the possibility of the unspeakable crimes, must we act before confirmation? Is asking for evidence a sign of compliance? There’ll be no doubt, though, you’ll be gripped and surprised when you join the Ensemble for one of the most produced American plays since 2003. “Doubt, a Parable” is the 2005 Pulitzer and Tony awarded play by the Oscar winning writer of “Moonstruck.” • Holiday Memories, Nov. 25-Dec. 30 By Truman Capote; adapted by Russell Vandenbroucke; directed by Gerard

Instead, it’s a play about what happens when Arlene, a spoiled used-to-be ingénue, and her lover, air-headed dentist Mitchell check in to a cheap hotel and plot to kill Arlene’s unsuspecting nebbish husband, Paul. Set in the classiest of all eras, the late 1970s, Bobrick and Clark’s (whose?) farce will not change your life. But it will make you laugh.

Homeschooling Resources


omeschooling in the State of Pennsylvania is governed by Act 169 of 1988. Parents who intend to school their children at home should familiarize themselves with that law, a copy of which is available at the Pennsylvania Homeschoolers website (www. In addition, the Christian Homeschool Association of Pennsylvania ( offers an excellent book on the legal issues surrounding homeschooling, “Keys to Homeschooling in the Keystone State,” available for free download on the website. Both organizations’ websites, as well as Homeschool Convention ( are among the many excellent sites offering an extensive amount of information and resources to assist those seeking to educate their children at home. Essentially, the law stipulates that: • Children may be homeschooled prior to the compulsory school age in Pennsylvania of 8 years without reporting to their school district superintendent. • At the age of 8, parents must file a notarized affidavit with the school dis-

trict in which they live on a yearly basis, outlining objectives and learning goals for the school year and documenting that the child is immunized and has received the health and medical services required by law. • Parents must document instruction with a log of 180 recorded school days (or 900 hours for grades 1-6 or 990 hours for grades 7-12), as well as provide a portfolio of educational activities, a reading list, and examples of work demonstrating the student’s academic progress. • Children must take a standardized achievement test in third, fifth and eighth grades, which must be included in the portfolio submitted at the end of that school year. The Department of Education can supply a list of approved tests, and school districts may provide the test, although they are not obligated to do so. • A certified teacher, a non-public school teacher who has taught two of the last 10 years, or a licensed psychologist must evaluate the student’s work. Evaluations must consist of interviews with the student and a review of the log and portfolio. The evaluator will write a

report certifying whether or not the student is making satisfactory academic progress, which must be submitted to the district superintendent by June 30. To assist parents, CHAP maintains a list of available student evaluators in the area. Numerous support groups are available in the area to provide information and assist homeschooling parents. Many have monthly meetings, field trips or activities for children. Area support groups include the following: Catholic Homeschoolers of North Central Pennsylvania Karen Konkolics, 389-0456 Christian Homeschool Association of Pennsylvania Larry and Kim Huber, 717-653-2367 Catholic Homeschoolers of Pennsylvania Larry and Ellen Kramer, 717-8665425, Traditions of Roman Catholic Homes (T.O.R.C.H) Karen Konkolics, 389-0456 Trinity Homeschoolers (Northumberland County) Lisa Lauro (

The ideal Modern day Emergency Managetime for mitigation is before an emergenment has evolved from the post World cy occurs. Examples of mitigation are: War II Civil Defense system, which was engage in regular good housekeeping, concerned principally with the civilian storage and disposal practices. It’s also response to a nuclear attack.

The following is an ties which protect lives and property and attempt to apply the cornerstones of meet basic human needs. Response emergency management to the average activities normally fall into two broad household or business setting. categories: shelter or evacuation. Seek-

ing shelter indoors is used to protect occupants from an outside threat. Shelter works if you have adequate food, water, supplies and backup systems to sustain life. Evacuation is required when a threat is so potentially dangerous it requires relocation. Evacuation is more tolerable if you maintain a list of supplies you’ll need to gather in a hurry and have identified a means of transportation and a relocation destination. An effective response is often determined by how much effort was put into pre-emergency preparedness. Recovery is the process of returning to normal by engaging in certain short and long term activities. Short term objectives are designed to obtain shelter and get essential services back on line as soon as possible. The long term goal is usually to return life to pre-emergency standards. An effective recovery often depends on how much effort was put into pre-emergency mitigation. This information has been provided compliments of the Columbia County Emergency Management Agency.

BOATING Continued from page 124 registered in Pennsylvania are less than 16 feet in length. While Pennsylvania is primarily a small boat state, all kinds of boating are popular, from whitewater rafting to big-water boating. Pennsylvania law requires that all motorboats, including electric motorboats, must be registered. All boats using Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission lakes or access areas, must be registered or possess a launch permit. Registration fees are based on the length of the boat being registered and are determined on two-year cycle. Currently, fees for powered boats are the following: for boats less than 16’, the fee is $26; for boats 16’ to less than 20’, the fee is $39; and for boats more than 20’, the fee is $52. People who do not intend to use a motor may register their boat as a non-powered boat for $18 for two years, regardless of length. Boat owners also have the option to obtain a Use (Launch) Permit in lieu of registration for their unpowered boat. A one-year permit is $10 and a two year permit is $18. Registration forms are available at many marine dealers, county treasurer

offices, any Fish and Boat Commission regional law enforcement office or by calling 717-705-7940. Launch Permits are also available at Pennsylvania State Park Offices. A listing is available at the Commission’s Web site at www. The boating portion of the site also provides necessary forms, down-loadable regulations and boating guidelines, and information about boating safety courses - including locations of the Commission’s Basic Boating classroom courses and Boat Pennsylvania’s Internet and video-correspondence boat courses. BOAT TITLING The Commission began issuing boat titles after March 1, 1998. A certificate of title is a legal document that proves ownership, and is not the same as boat registration. Application forms are the same ones used for boat registration and are available at county treasurers’ offices, certain boat dealerships, the Commission’s headquarters in Harrisburg and all regional law enforcement offices. The fee for a certificate of title is $15. PERSONAL WATERCRAFT Personal watercraft (PWC) are defined

as vessels less than 16 feet in length that use an inboard engine powering a water jet pump as their primary source of propulsion. PWC operators must follow the same laws and regulations as other boaters and must wear a life jacket at all times. It is illegal for anyone to operate a PWC without a Boating Safety Education Certificate, which can be obtained by taking a boating safety course (see the Commission Web site for class information). See age restrictions below. MINIMUM AGE FOR OPERATING BOAT • 0-25 HP motor — none • Greater than 25 HP — Persons 11 years of age or younger may not operate; persons born on or after Jan. 1, 1982, may not operate unless they have obtained and have in their possession a Boating Safety Education Certificate • Personal Watercraft (PWC) — A person 11 years of age or younger may not operate a personal watercraft; a person 12 through 15 years of age may not operate a personal watercraft if there are any passengers onboard 15 years of age or younger

BUCKNELL UNIVERSITY Moore Avenue Lewisburg, PA 17837 Telephone: (570)-577-2000 Founded in 1846, Bucknell University has earned its reputation as one of the nation’s top liberal arts institutions. At the same time, the university features outstanding professional programs in engineering, business, education, and music, as well as nationally ranked programs and pre-professional advising that prepare students for success in law and medicine. Bucknell is among the top 20 U.S. liberal arts colleges in the number of graduates who go on to earn doctorates. The program of study across more than 60 majors and 65 minors is often combined into a fascinating array of double and triple majors that gives every student the opportunity to fulfill his or her greatest ambitions. Students come to the classically

beautiful campus in historic Lewisburg from across the nation and the world, including from nearly every state and more than 60 countries. They comprise a student population of more than 3,500 undergraduates and 150 graduate students who take advantage of Bucknell’s expansive, rigorous curriculum and enjoy nearly 200 student organizations devoted to a range of interests — from service-learning programs and Greek life to study abroad and Division I athletics. And they enjoy a learning community where every class is taught by a full-time faculty member. Together, Bucknellians learn at the highest levels to lead, to serve, and to prepare for success in a global society. Bucknell distinguishes itself by combining the best characteristics of a traditional liberal arts college — selectivity, personalized education, residential living and a commitment to the teacher-scholar model — with the advantages of a larger university with research opportunities and facilities, diverse curricula and extensive cocurricular resources. Bucknell also offers an array of experiential learning opportunities, from the Student Managed Investment Fund, a yearlong class in which students take charge of real-money investments, to the Bucknell Brigade, a bi-annual service trip to Nicaragua, where Bucknellians have, for the past decade, helped to rebuild a community devastated by Hurricane Mitch. Bucknell students contribute time, supplies and money for projects ranging from rebuilding the area affected by Hurricane Katrina to volunteering with the local fire company. Many students participate in intramural and intercollegiate Division I athletics; work on one of the numerous publications; host a show at the radio station; participate in student government; help with community volunteer projects; perform with one of the many music, drama and dance groups; or join one of 19 social fraternities and sororities.

Board meetings: Third Thursday of each month at the school, 6 p.m. Greenwood’s rigorous curriculum nurtures natural curiosity and leads to academic excellence. Greenwood encourages students to learn through innovation and collaboration, preparing them to succeed in high school and beyond. Preschool (whose program is based on the Reggio-Emilia approach to learning) through eighth grade students explore their world locally and globally, benefiting from hands-on, experiential learning. Greenwood’s experienced and highlyskilled faculty design the school’s curriculum, exceeding the standards set by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the Pennsylvania Association of Independent Schools. The curriculum emphasizes reading, writing, mathematics, social studies and inquiry-based science. Teachers carefully assess these core academic subjects in a variety of ways. They attend to the whole child by providing classes in art, drama, music, foreign language, library, computer skills and physical education, as well. In 2011-2012, the all-school thematic study is “This Land is Your Land, This Land is Our Land.” Greenwood is rooted in more than 300 years of Friends education in America that promotes academic excellence, non-violent resolution of conflict and

respect for all. The Quaker testimonies of peace, integrity, equality, community, simplicity and service underlie Greenwood’s student, faculty and community life. Greenwood graduates excel academically and as citizens who have the confidence and commitment to make a positive difference in the world. All students participate in community service projects. Greenwood welcomes all children without regard to economic, social or religious background; 10 percent of current students come from Quaker families. The school offers generous financial aid based on family need and the Greenwood Scholars Program for qualified students in grades five-eight. • Greenwood’s Mission Statement: Greenwood Friends School teaches children to think critically, creatively, and compassionately.

Croutch • Established: 1971 • Enrollment: 86 • Faculty: 11 full time, 2 part time • History This year, 2011, marks Maranatha Christian School’s 39th year in serving the community and churches in Christian education. This endeavor began in 1971, when God raised up a group of concerned men and women who saw a need to provide a Christian school with God-honoring, high-quality education to meet the needs of the future generation. Since its beginning, the school has been dedicated to providing quality education from a Christian perspective. In addition to its core curriculum, Maranatha also encourages young men and women to grow in Christian character and commitment to Christ. An education focusing on God’s perspective will give students a firm foundation from which to evaluate the present and meet the challenges of the future. bie Gownley, Kathy Holleran, MaryMaranatha Christian School is in a Alice Krebs, Edward Ludes, Jennifer beautiful setting overlooking Paradise McLaughlin, Dr. Margaret Mary West Valley near Turbotville, Northumberland and Dr. Robert Wislock.

This Catholic elementary school offers a complete curriculum with state-certified teachers in preschool through grade 8. All are lay faculty with the exception of grades 2 and 4. A religious instructor of the same order as the founding Sisters teaches second grade. Fourth grade is taught by a Sister of the Immaculate Heart of Mary order from Scranton. St. Columba School proudly celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2004 and looks forward to continuing its academic excellence and strong spiritual influence in the community into the next 50 years. • Accreditation: St. Columba School is accredited by the Pennsylvania Department of Education and regulated by the Catholic Diocese of Harrisburg; the only elementary/middle school in Columbia County accredited by the Middle States Commission on Elementary Schools. • Curriculum strengths: The principal and teachers hold PDE certification, including continuing professional development for Act 48 standards. Music, art, physical education, computer technology, and library science are taught weekly by qualified instructors to all grades K-8. A foreign language program is incorporated into the language arts curriculum for grades one through eight. Computers are integrated within each classroom, including many new opportunities to enhance instruction since the recent installation of the Diocesan WAN (wide area network). The curriculum follows the Diocese of Harrisburg Curriculum for

Elementary Schools and is aligned with state and national standards. St. Columba Middle School, which begins in Grade 5, is departmentalized for math, religion, science and social studies. • Philosophy of Education: St. Columba School welcomes every child of any faith background to its morally and spiritually rich environment, which features exemplary academics, solid faith formation, service-oriented leadership privileges and community outreach opportunities. They have earned a fine reputation for inspiring their students to reach their full potential and achieve personal success. Motivated by consistently superior achievements, St. Columba School will continue to prepare students for the 21st century by offering an integrated approach that brings together mind and body, matter and spirit, knowledge and reason, science and religion.

Steven Fauser • Professional Staff: 21 • History For over 100 years, since 1890, St. Joseph School has been providing a caring, Catholic education in Danville and the surrounding area to first through eighth grade students. It is a school, which in partnership with their parents, has been dedicated to preparing students for the future. Our program is designed to make a distinctive contribution to that future by helping children develop as individuals: academically, spiritually, emotionally and physically. We emphasize strong Christian values and Faith in God. We believe: that all students will be instilled with a love of their faith through a traditional Christian-centered education, that no education is complete unless it includes the principles of the Gospels, and that the parents are the primary educators of their children and we accept our role as partners in the mission of Catholic education. • Academics St. Joseph School has a tradition of

offering its students a quality education that stresses the basics of education. We emphasize: - that all students are capable of learning and deserve a quality, individualized education - reading skills, particularly in primary grades, stressing phonics, comprehension and oral reading - development of language arts in the intermediate and middle levels, stressing grammar, spelling, vocabulary and creative writing - art, music and physical education for children at all grade levels - hands-on computer usage for enhancement and reinforcement of academic skills at all levels - opportunities for enrichment/remedial instruction - programs for student recognition and honors - a math facts program which encourages the development of math problemsolving strategies - Spanish at the seventh- and eighthgrade level - advanced math classes • Faith Formation St. Joseph School cultivates a strong faith in God, stressing positive values. It encourages its students to become involved Christians. We offer monthly liturgies that emphasize student participation, weekly liturgies and Stations of the Cross during Lent, monthly opportunity for the Sacrament of Reconciliation, observation of special traditional Church devotions, thorough sacramental preparation, participation in daily prayer and student retreat days. • Service St. Joseph School is known for its student involvement with the community, for we feel that Christian service is learned early in life and learned best when practiced. We encourage sensitivity to the needs of others through social justice and service projects in the community, greater respect for peers through our students’ developed respect for themselves, and parish involvement as a foundation for future leadership skills. • Extracurricular activities: We broaden our students’ education by enhancing our classroom education with the following valuable extracurricular activi-

Bloomsburg Theatre Ensemble

SEASON 34 something for everybody. By John Patrick Shanley September 29 - October 16, 2011 Directed by James Goode The office of a Catholic School in the Bronx, 1964, transforms into a field of battle when the Sister principal confronts the Parish priest about his relationship with an eighth grader. Faced with the possibility of unspeakable crimes, must we act before confirmation? Join the Ensemble for one of the most produced American plays since 2003. Doubt, a Parable is the 2005 Pulitzer and Tony awarded play by the Oscar winning writer of “Moonstruck.” By Truman Capote, adapted by Russell Vandenbroucke

November 25 - December 23, 2011 Directed by Gerard Stropnicky “Oh my, it’s fruitcake weather!” Truman Capote’s stories of his childhood holidays in the Depression Deep South are filled with joy, love, family, poignancy, music, vivid characters, and entirely American grace in this funny, beautiful, and fast-moving stage adaptation. By Ron Clark & Sam Bobrick March 8 - 25, 2012 Directed by Richard Cannaday Every generation or so, a play comes along that makes us reach deep within our souls to reveal what lies within, this is not that play. Instead, it’s a play about what happens when Arlene, a spoiled used-to-be ingénue, and her lover, air-headed dentist Mitchell, check in to a cheap hotel and plot to kill Arlene’s unsuspecting nebbish husband, Paul. Set in the classiest of all eras, the late 1970’s, this farce will not change your life. But it will make you laugh. Hard.

Intrigued by what’s going on in the next room, Dr. Givings’ wife, will soon discover the ‘shocking’ side-effects (or unexpected benefits) of her husband’s revolutionary gadget. Take a peek at what happens when hysteria becomes hysterical. *In the Next Room offers an innocent examination of some adult topics. Parental discretion is advised. PLUS THESE BONUS SHOWS:

The Guys September 8-11, 2011 by Anne Nelson directed by Daniel Roth

History of Press Enterprise is your source for local coverage


t all began the evening of Feb. 28, 1902. The Susquehanna River was overflowing from recent heavy rainfall and two young business partners, Paul R. Eyerly and Charles T. Vanderslice, were struggling to bail out the rising water in the newly opened downtown Bloomsburg office of The Morning Press. By daybreak, the ambitious young men had reduced the water level enough to publish the first edition of The Morning Press, datelined March 1, 1902. The pair had embarked on a challenging project: launching a new daily newspaper serving the Bloomsburg area. The venture joined four other local newspapers in publication at that time: the Columbia County Republican, the Democratic Sentinel, the Bloomsburg Daily and the Columbian. However, due to the flood, the Morning Press was the only local newspaper in circulation in the days after the waters rose. Eyerly handled the paper’s news-gathering operations while Vanderslice managed the business and mechanical aspects of the operation. The following year, C.A. Rasely, Berwick, launched the Berwick Daily Enterprise, an evening newspaper serving Berwick residents. Rasely sold the Enterprise to Eyerly and Vanderslice in 1907. Under the new leadership of Emmett Eyerly, Paul’s brother, the Enterprise saw substantial growth. The new owners also upgraded the printing equipment and purchased a new home for the newspaper. Meanwhile, The Morning Press continued to grow. By 1914, the newspaper had passed the 5,000 circulation mark.
