  2. DuBois takes fourth consecutive win in BEST Robotics DuBOIS – DuBois Area High School has taken the top spot in the BEST Robotics Contest at Penn State DuBois for the fourth year in a row. Taking first place in BEST means the team's performance in robotics, their engineering design notebook, marketing plan, and other areas of the competition were all tallied and combined for a total score. This gives DuBois a bid to advance to the regional competition planned for December 7, and 8, in Denver, Colorado. First place in the individual robotics portion went to Mentor Christian School, from Mentor, Ohio. Taking first in robotics also gets Mentor a bid to the regionals in Colorado. BEST (Boosting Engineering, Science and Technology) took place on Saturday, October 19, in the campus gymnasium. This year’s theme was titled “Off the Grid” and was based on a scenario where a natural disaster has taken out the supply of electricity to an area. In the simulation students were required to use their robots to repair the electrical grid. BEST provides all necessary parts and equipment for teams to build a robot that they can use to run a course and perform specified tasks. The robot must be built within a six-week time frame. On the days of the contest, all teams run the course, competing for the best times and course completion. Through participation in this project-based program, students learn to analyze and solve problems utilizing the Engineering Design Process, which helps them develop technological literacy skills. The goal is to better prepare these students for further education and careers in STEM fields, (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). The learning opportunities with BEST don't stop at STEM fields. Teams also compete and receive awards for other areas of the project, which include marketing, exhibition, an engineering notebook, sportsmanship, team spirit, and more. “The greatest thing about BEST Robotics is how it brings together people with different skills and teaches them that each person has talents, whether it’s graphic arts, programming, marketing, building, or leadership skills, that are all equally important to the success of an organization,” said Stephen Feldbauer, instructor in the Penn State DuBois engineering programs, and coordinator for BEST at Penn State DuBois. Schools participating in Penn State DuBois BEST this year were Altoona High School; Bethlehem Center High School; Cranberry Area School District; DuBois Area High School; Mentor Christian School, from Mentor, Ohio; Oil City School District; The Tatnall School, from Wilmington, Delaware; Redbank Valley High School; and Redeemer Lutheran School. Other awards included Best Notebook: Cranberry Area; Marketing: Cranberry Area; Spirit and Sportsmanship: DuBois; Team Exhibit and Interview: DuBois; Best T-Shirt: Cranberry Area; Best Team Flag: Cranberry Area; Founders Award: DuBois; Most Robust Robot: DuBois. BEST Executive Director Michael Steiner attended Game Day at Penn State DuBois, as he did for the kick-off event in September. Steiner oversees the entire nation-wide organization, based out of Pittsburgh, including 47 hubs, more than 900 schools, and nearly 30,000 students participating each year. He praised the DuBois hub for its organization, talented students, and exciting atmosphere. “The reason I’m here is that I see in every one of you an amazing scientist or engineer,” Steiner told the students. “I believe in you, and I want to see you go forward and succeed.” BEST at Penn State DuBois is made possible by Platinum Sponsor Miller Fabrication Solutions, Silver Sponsors Atlas Pressed Metals and Comtec Manufacturing, Inc, and Bronze Sponsor Eastern Sintered Alloys, Inc. # # # DuBois Area High School students raise their flag in celebration after winning first place in the Penn State DuBois BEST Robotics Competition on Saturday.

  10. Dr. Francis C. Cataldi, 90 years old, of Drs Lane, Penfield, PA passed away peacefully at his home on October 14,, 2019 with his wife and daughters at his side, after a brief illness. Born on November 23, 1928 in Tyler, PA, he was the second son of Angelo and Concetta Paturzo Cataldi. Francis graduated from Huston Township High School in 1946. He married Elvera Grace Segalla on July 8, 1950 and entered the Army in 1951. Before being honorably discharged, he and Vera moved to Indianapolis, IN and he entered Lincoln Chiropractic College, graduating with honors in 1958 as a Doctor of Chiropractic. Francis was very proud of the fact that he worked various odd jobs to put himself through Chiropractic School while supporting his wife and newborn child. Francis practiced as a Chiropractor in PA for 50 years, and his daughters are still approached by people who miss his honest and caring treatment. He also worked for the State of Pennsylvania and for the Department of Environmental Resources as a Surface Mine Inspector, for 10 years prior to retirement. During that time, he served as Union President for AFSCME. Even in retirement, he had a thirst for knowledge and was always available to family and friends for help and advice. Francis was a member of the Driftwood Masonic Lodge No. 532 and served as Grand Master in 1973, 1977 and 1981. He remained an honorary member until his passing. He will be dearly missed by his wife for being a caring, trustworthy and loving husband. His daughters will remember him not only as their hero, but for instilling the importance of hard work, honesty, knowledge and principals. He is survived by his wife of 69 years, 3 daughters, Renee, Denise, and Lisa, and a sister, Jennie Emmert. Many may remember him as "Doc" or "Bear", his childhood nickname. He was preceded in death by his parents, 2 brother (Cosimo and Antonio "Tony" Cataldi), and 1 sister (Anna Marie Herzing). 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 his name to Bennett's Valley Ambulance, 12479 Bennett's Valley Highway, Penfield, PA 15849 or Penn Highlands Hospice Nurses 100 Hospital Avenue, DuBois, PA 15801.

Christ Lutheran is located at 875 Sunflower Drive, just off Maple Ave., in DuBois. The workshops are: 3 p.m. – A different way to strum. Learn simple but very effective techniques that lead to a smoother, more concise and more interesting player. Advanced and beginner players both can learn from these techniques. 4:15 p.m. – Songs of the 60s and 70s. Learn a handful of tunes from the golden age of rock and pop music. These are chord/melody arrangements but there will also be strum and sing versions too. Ross will perform in concert at 5:45 p.m. open to everyone. Cost for the day is $20 for one workshop; $35 for two workshops. All price levels include admission to the concert. A pass the hat is scheduled for walk-ins to the concert. Advance reservations may be made by e-mail at ginnyschott@gmail.com or by telephone at 814-371-4627. Ross, born in Meadville and raised in Falls Creek, graduated from DuBois Area High School in 1986. Now based in Chattanooga, Tenn., Ross has tackled everything from Radiohead to Bach and come away with a renewed appreciation for what the humble dulcimer is capable of. No genre is off-limits, nor is there a limit to what Ross has envisioned for this specific instrument. The dulcimer is an unassuming thing, with a handful of strings and a history that feels embedded in the lineage of countless Appalachian musicians. But Ross has taken it and Ross became intrigued with the instrument when he was given a mountain dulcimer as a birthday present. At first, the instrument was a curiosity but before too long it became his instrument of choice. A chance meeting with musician, author and producer Robert Force (himself a dulcimer iconoclast) led to the 2005 release The Moonshiner's Atlas and a complete change of focus. Since then Ross has become an in-demand performer at folk and dulcimer festivals throughout the US and Europe. He's performed at such festivals as Kentucky Music Week, the Central Ohio Folk Festival, Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, the Lancaster (UK) Music and the prestigious Philadelphia Folk Festival. Ross' most recent release is called "Found Objects." It's a collection of original compositions, outside-the-box covers, original tunes, mashups and thoroughly unexpected arrangements of traditional songs. It’s an eclectic mix that led Times-Free Press reporter Joshua Pickard to call it “a sound both experienced and timeless, a result of its celebrated past and boundless future.”
