  4. North Central PA LaunchBox survey aims to help businesses recover from COVID-19 crisis DuBOIS – Results are in from a survey distributed by the North Central PA LaunchBox intended to explore the needs of regional businesses as they endure the COVID-19 crisis, with an eye on reopening when possible. Serving the counties of Cameron, Clarion, Clearfield, Elk, Jefferson, Potter and McKean, the LaunchBox developed this short, online business recovery survey to fully understand not only the initial ramifications of COVID-19 towards businesses, but also ongoing issues that may impact those businesses once they begin to reopen. This project has been in cooperation with several counties in the region including Cameron, Clearfield, and Jefferson, along with municipalities and regional resource partners. The intention was to dig deeply into what needs local business and industry might have moving forward, so that the LaunchBox and other industry partners could help to connect business owners and community leaders with resources necessary to thrive coming out of the quarantine. “The concept behind this project is to be able to examine the effects of COVID-19 on businesses from municipal, county, and regional levels. This will help local and county officials gain access to data that they can directly pass along in conversations with state and federal legislators to further help assist businesses through all stages of this pandemic,” said North Central PA LaunchBox Director Brad Lashinsky. “Another benefit of this survey is being able to examine the effects of this pandemic on a regional level and to utilize the skills and assets associated with all the business resource partners in the region. It provides public officials and resource partners with an overview of the impacts to businesses throughout the region due to Covid-19. This will hopefully allow partners to best utilize their skill sets and resources to support those businesses being impacted. Lashinsky indicated that the raw data from the survey is going to be directly used in a new COVID-19 Rapid Response Recovery Program developed by the North West Industrial Resource Center, SEWN (Strategic Early Warning Network) and the Clarion University Small Business Development Center, in conjunction with other resource partners. They will take each individual survey collected, examine the needs, and call the company to further discuss developing a recovery plan for them to get through and past the pandemic successfully. The survey collected 288 individual responses. “COVID-19 has spread through our area and we are not sure of the final impact that it has created,” said Jefferson County Commissioner Herbert L. Bullers Jr. “Businesses throughout the surrounding areas began to consider laying off, putting themselves and employees in hardship. Thanks to the LaunchBox, a conversation began between business owners and local officials. This survey revealed the real effects and impacts that this brought to the area. The information that was accumulated, plus the conversation between those effected, will help the area return as quickly as possible to some sense of normalcy.” Clearfield County Commissioner John Sobel added, “The results are helpful in the sense that more information is better in reopening business in the County and the region. The same will be a complicated process and we need to do it right. I do want to thank Mr. Lashinsky for his efforts, as well as the DuBois campus of Penn State. I am hopeful that our local businesses will weather the effects of this most unfortunate event in human history.” Sobel continued, “The information does help us as local leaders work with the challenge of local businesses obtaining enough funding until they are able to get back on their business feet again. The survey results showed that most businesses felt that they might very well need further assistance because of the losses they’ve suffered. We now know to focus on trying to help them obtain a further influx of cash if necessary.” Lashinsky explained that as a result of the North Central Region Survey, the LaunchBox has been asked to conduct a survey for the North West Region, which includes eight counties. All told, the impact of the surveys will cover about a quarter of the Commonwealth.

  5. Saving time is VERY important to find the stuff you are interested in reading.. 90% of the time you can tell if its local, regional or state by reading the TITLE. If I started a new local/ regional forum, I'll be the one moving the topics to the correct forum. I move many, including yours, to the correct forum. The less .... the better. How do you check the Forum board? The best way is to use the "ALL ACTIVITY" STREAM where you see everything all on one thread from all of the forums & topics & posts. If you use the the "EXPANDED" viewing, you can read a little part of the description, to see if it's worth reading the full post .... If you choose the condensed version with Titles only, its shorter and quicker reading. http://www.godubois.com/index.php?/discover/ Also you can look at other DEFAULT streams or create you own stream

The situation typically drains their resources – financially, emotionally and even health-wise. Parents of Addicted Loved Ones (PAL) is a non-profit with a group in Clearfield that comes alongside families to help. It provides education, peer support and hope at no charge. Using a structured curriculum at weekly PAL meetings, parents learn how to deal with issues ranging from enabling to guilt, providing education, encouragement and hope. They also have an opportunity to network with other parents struggling with the same issues for support and fellowship. The meeting lessons are designed to develop coping skills for family members so they can change their relationship with the addicted person, heal, and move forward with their own lives. The Clearfield Area group had been meeting in person at Hyde Wesleyan Church, 1215 Riverview Road, Clearfield prior to implementation of COVID-19 precautions. However, during social distancing requirements, the group was held virtually via ZOOM meetings to keep everyone connected as best as possible. “COVID-19 and the necessary precautionary measures have taken a toll on the recovery community, whether you are someone who suffers from Substance Use Disorder, or are a family member in recovery,” says Bobbie Johnson, the group’s local facilitator. “I’ve heard it said that the opposite of addiction is not sobriety, but connection. Our family members impacted by a loved one’s addiction need that connection, too, as part of their own recovery journey.” With Clearfield County transitioning to the Green Phase on May 29th, the Clearfield PALs group will begin meeting in person again on Monday, June 1st, at Hyde Wesleyan Church, Clearfield, from 5:45 p.m. – 7:15 p.m. Following CDC guidelines, the group asks that anyone not feeling well abstain from attending the live meeting, especially if he/she has a fever, cough, or shortness of breath. Chairs will be distanced six (6) feet apart and anyone wishing to wear a mask is welcome to, although it is not required. Other standard precautions such as handwashing will be in effect. Because Ms. Johnson realizes there are those who may not yet feel comfortable attending in person, she states that the online meetings will continue as well for those who wish to attend virtually. Anyone with questions or concerns is welcome to contact Ms. Johnson at 814-290-8476 or visit the group’s Facebook page at Clearfield PALs. There are currently more than 150 PAL weekly groups across the country in 36 states using the evidence-based program. Thousands have been helped by PAL. Often, as parents learn to deal with their challenges in a healthy way, their children also begin dealing with their addiction in a healthier manner.

  10. Elvera Grace Cataldi, age 88, of Drs Lane, Penfield, PA passed away unexpectedly on Monday, May 25, 2020 at her home. Born on December 23, 1931, in Cardiff, PA, she was the daughter of the late Enrico Luigi and Rose Josephine (Armanini) Segalla. She was a graduate of Bennett’s Valley High School Class of 1949. On July 8, 1950 she married her husband of 69 years, Dr. Francis C. Cataldi. He preceded her in death on October 14, 2019, and she has been lost without him. Elvera graduated from The Approved University of Beauty Culture in Indianapolis, IN, and was a self-employed beautician in the Valley for 50 years. She loved her customers, many of whom became like family. She had a green thumb, loved her flowers and could grow anything. She was hard-working and took great pride in a well-kept home. Elvera was known as “Vera” to family and friends and she could be counted on to cause or share a good laugh. Her daughters will miss her dearly, and her words of wisdom "in Italian" and attention to detail are with them constantly. She loved spending time with her family. Elvera is survived by her 3 daughters; Renee, Denise and Lisa, 1 brother Angelo (Joann) Segalla and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by 2 sisters; Marie (Francis) Lombardo & Inez (Carl) Salter and 1 brother Frank (Margaret) Segalla. Elvera was a loving Mother, devoted wife and good friend to many. There will be no public visitation and private services will be held at the convenience of the family. The Baronick Funeral Home & Crematorium, Inc is in charge of arrangements. Memorial donations may be made in her name to Bennett’s Valley Ambulance, 12479 Bennett’s Valley Highway, Penfield, PA 15849. Online condolences can be made to www.baronickfuneralhome.com

  12. Republican State Senate Candidate Herm Suplizio is inviting his two rivals to join him in a debate on Thursday in Reynoldsville. > 5/28/20 6pm Suplizio says he would enjoy another opportunity to share a stage with Rep. Cris Dush of Brookville and Dr. Jim Brown of Brockway. The three men are vying for the GOP nomination for the 25th District state Senate seat held by Senate President Joe Scarnati of Brockway who is retiring. The three have engaged in forums in St. Marys, Eldred and Clinton County. Suplizio wants to give voters in Jefferson and Clearfield counties a chance to hear the candidates. Suplizio is the city manager in DuBois, Clearfield County. Dush and Brown are from Brookville and Brockway, respectively, in Jefferson County. “There’s a lot for us to talk about. Voters want to know more about us with respect to our positions. I believe we owe them an opportunity to hear from us directly.” Suplizio proposes that the debate be held at the Reynoldsville Fire Hall beginning at 6 p.m. and be moderated by Jefferson County Republican Chairman Chad Horner. Suplizio urged his opponents to confirm their participation.
