Opportunity Park Buildings Near Completion

Looks like a ribbon cutting in the near future for building 33 at the Titusville Opportunity Park. According to James Becker, Executive Director of the Titusville Redevelopment Authority, and speaking at yesterday's TRA monthly public meeting, everything but the review of two storm water management documents by engineers for TRA and the City of Titusville is completed. The detail will be signed off when the city approves Storm Water Management plan. Becker says the company is already moved in. The company is now only waiting on signage.

Building 32 is moving well along. Becker says the man doors are now all installed and the garage doors will be here this week. Lighting and concrete are both 70% complete. Regarding the twenty series buildings, Becker reports potential bidders were on site late last month and so he expects good participation with the bids. The bids will be received by this Thursday and opened on August 18th at 3 pm. TRA's engineers will then review the bids and make recommendations. The TRA board will take an e mail vote and ratify in person at the September meeting the bids chosen and recommended. The contractors could be on site by Labor Day.

CLAMA Cleans Lake Waters

Weed harvesters are hard at work in both Chautauqua Lake and Conneaut Lake this summer. The Conneaut Lake Aquatic Management Association (CLAMA) says the weed harvester machine is picking up more plants and weeds from the lake this year than ever before. The growth is attributed to zebra mussels that appeared three years ago. Invasive species and other plants in the water get caught in jet skis and boats and also affect swimmers and home values if the lake isn't swept clean each day. The weeds are given to local farmers to use as fertilizer. CLAMA is looking for employees for next summer. They also operate 100 percent on donations and will need an additional harvest machine in the next two years. If you’re interested in donating or applying for a job:

American and PA State Flags at Half-Staff Harrisburg and Northumberland Cty

Governor Tom Corbett has ordered U.S. and state flags to fly at half-staff at state facilities in Harrisburg and Northumberland County in honor of a Pennsylvania native who was the last surviving crew member of the plane that dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima. Flags are to be lowered today until sundown in memory of Capt. Theodore "Dutch" VanKirk, whose funeral is scheduled also today in his hometown of Northumberland.

VanKirk was the navigator on the B-29 bomber called the Enola Gay. He once said he thought the catastrophic bombing of the Japanese city in 1945 was necessary because it shortened the war, but that he would like to see all of the world's atomic bombs abolished. VanKirk was 93 when he died July 28 at a Georgia retirement home.

Ag Secretary Greig Speaks Up for Farmers

Saying “This isn’t a political issue, it’s a Pennsylvania issue,” Secretary of Agriculture George Greig issued a statement Friday concerning increasing property taxes and the impact this has on farming. He says, “Right now, farmers and all other PA landowners have an important opportunity to improve their bottom lines and put our state on a path to economic stability.” “Urge your legislators,” he says, “to enact meaningful pension reform. Failure to do something now means property taxes will continue to rise, as school districts are forced to continue finding ways to pay their obligations.”

Citing the average PA farm as 123 acres, Greig says farm familys pay a disproportionately large share of taxes. He says the pension crisis is hitting farmers the hardest. In a recent meeting with Governor Tom Corbett, the leaders talked with Huntingdon County farmers to learn how rising property taxes are affecting their operations and families.

Oil City Becomes Artist Destination

Like many other Pennsylvania communities, Oil City had to regroup, recalibrate and reinvent after being mostly industry-driven for decades. Once the nation’s oil production center, the boom days are now ensconced in history and Oil City has had to make some adjustments to stay vibrant and viable. It’s choice? To embrace the arts and our local artists.

The area happens to be rich in the arts. Over the years the city’s emerging vision is to display works of art, in every genre, everywhere – including inside stately old landmarks such as the National Transit Building. For instance on the 2nd Floor, just outside the elevator doors, there’s a larger-than-life papier mache Charlie Chaplin lying on the floor. Beside that, book illustrator John Manders is snapping images of Kat Sockey who is clad in medieval attire and wielding a sword. Manders plans to use the images to guide his drawings for a graphic novel.

Joann Wheeler, Head of Oil City’s Artist Relocation Program, deals in Styrofoam. As an artist herself, Wheeler is wooing other creative types to Oil City, including an incentive from a local bank with a financing program. Artists have to apply for the program. If approved they are connected with a realtor and local bank. Since the program got started 8 years ago, 32 artists have relocated to Oil City. It’s a Renaissance Age in the former oil region and Oil City is leading the way.
