After a week of laboriously re-counting votes, the Potter County Canvassing board on Thursday certified the votes for the Republican nomination for County Commission. Nancy Grupp improved her lead from one vote to three votes over J. David Buckler  to finish with 1493 to 1489. Incumbent Paul Heimel was the top vote getter with 1505. Lorentz Larry Hinrchsen came in fourth with 247. Barry Hayman was unopposed for the Democrat nominator so in all likely hood,  Heimel,  Grupp and Hayman will form the new board of commissioners this coming January.

Paul Heimel – 1505

 

Nancy Grupp – 1493

 

Lorentz Larry Hinrichsen – 247

 

J David Buckler – 1489

Rep. Martin Causer tells Black Forest Broadcasting News that the t House Health Committee has approved legislation to better manage pain clinics and to identify patients who have previously overdosed on opioid’s. HB 1005 require health professionals and first responders to document the use of Narcan or Noxlozone or any other opioid overdose agent in the patient’s record and in  a state data base so the information can be tracked. HB 1214 was also approved. It  would require pain management  clinics to be licensed and regulated by the Department of Health to insure they are  not prescribing or  dispensing controlled substances inappropriately .Causer says  it’s important that people with chronic pain can access the medication they need but it is equally important to prevent abuse or misuse of controlled substances . Both bills were reported from the House Health Committee and now move to the full house for consideration.

State police at Emporium seized suspected drugs and paraphernalia from a home on the CCC Memorial Highway in Lumber Township last Sunday afternoon.  Troopers found the items in a room after being called to the home to investigate.

Police also did not release the name of a 30 year old Emporium man for DUI after his vehicle was stopped for an alleged traffic violation on the evening of May 22. Troopers at Mansfield have charged a 28 year old Tioga PA man for DUI  after they stopped his 2004 Buick LeSabre on Route 287 in Middlebury Township   late on the night of April 13. Troopers at Ridgway have charged 31 year old Bryan Dumire with drug possession after they allegedly found him in possession of a small amount of marijuana in a commercial bottle without a prescription label when they stopped his 2004 Mazda RX8 on Race Street in Ridgway Wednesday night.

 

 

COUDERSPORT, Pa.—Cheryl L. Scoville Phelps, 64, of Coudersport, went to be with the Lord, at home surrounded by her family, on Tuesday, May 28, 2019, after a courageous battle with cancer.

Cheryl attended Northern Potter High School.  She was a homemaker for 12 years in the Coudersport area, before being employed from what is now the Coudersport Shop N Save, retiring after 32 years of service.

In addition to her parents, Cheryl was predeceased by her father-in-law and her mother-in-law, Paul and Ethel Phelps; and a sister-in-law, Beverly Rogers.

 

Family and friends may call from 2 pm to 4 pm and 6 pm to 9 pm on Monday, at the Virgil L.
