Firefighter escapes serious injury

by Marie Chomicki

A Wellsville firefighter avoided serious injury after a big, quick flash of fire exploded in his face as he was knocking down a fire inside a pickup truck Wednesday afternoon, June 15 at 2:17 p.m. on Alpine Road, Warrington Township. “It was pretty intense,” Wellsville Assistant Fire Chief Craig Harlacker said of the ordeal. "We couldn't predict it, we couldn't see it." The fire was fully involved and the driver, Thomas Barthel, Jr. of Dover, was standing outside of his Dodge Ram pickup when responders arrived. Harlacker said, “We got out quick.”

246 seniors march into the future

Resist the temptation to pursue selfish ambition. Impact the problem of hatred toward one another. Get some clean energy happening. These were just a few of the charges given by teachers and staff to the Northern High School Class of 2016 at graduation last Thursday night. “How will you use your experience and skills to make a difference in your community and the world?” asked Northern School District Superintendent Dr. Eric Eshbach in his remarks to the class, noting that “Sometimes you are presented with challenges that become opportunities.”

Fire company still under microscope
by Peggie Williams

Two months ago Citizens Hose Company No.1’s Chief Scott McClintock was grilled by supervisor Mike Ryan; this month it was Dean Trump, a member of the board of directors of the fire company, who was under the microscope. Ryan wanted more details on the resignation of EMS department head Traci Cook and many of her co-workers. But Trump refused to go into many details. “I won’t discuss personnel matters in a public forum,” he told supervisors.

Allstate keeps its cool, wins Minors gold
by Andy Sandrik

Even when considering all the factors -- a championship game being played under the lights in front of an electric crowd -- Mike Walker could only describe his Saturday night as "fun and relaxed." Walker's Allstate team, with the exception of a skittish final inning, was able to keep its nerves in check in a 9-6 victory over Kampel Enterprises in Dillsburg Youth Baseball's Minors division championship game, held at Ryder Field.

Jack Panas Insurance regains swagger, wins Majors title
by Andy Sandrik


For much of the Dillsburg Youth Baseball season, Jack Panas Insurance was in complete control of the Majors division. Erick Johnson's team cruised to an 8-0 start, which consisted mostly of blowouts. It seemed like there was nothing that could stop JPI. Then one of the team's star players went down with a broken hand. As Johnson put it, the wind was taken out of his team's sails. JPI lost three games down the stretch, including to eventual champion Steve Morret Plumbing, to lose control of the division. "We peaked over those first eight games and we were sailing," Johnson said. "After we lost one of our key players, everyone looked around as if to say, 'What do we do now?'" It took a great effort, but JPI was able to get its groove back.
