Jake A. Taylor Seeks To Be Your Hebron Township Supervisor

Jake A. Taylor is seeking the position of Township Supervisor, Hebron Township, Potter County.

1997 Graduate of Oswayo Valley High School, 2001 Graduate of Mansfield University, B.S., Bachelor’s of Science, Business Administration.

2002-2006 U.S. Army, 1st Ranger Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment, Special Opertaions Command.

I am currently employed with Tennessee Gas Pipeline, where for the past five years I have worked as a technician and administrator.
I have been very active within the township for the past several months. I have regularly attended and added input to township meetings and have been attending all of the counties Natural Gas Task Force meetings, as well as meetings held within the county by representatives from the Penn State Cooperative Extension.

I believe it will be very important for the next township supervisor to be well informed and educated on the issues that will impact our township in the future. In the years ahead, our township will be home to the rapid development of natural gas and its supporting infrastructure. As our state legislators work to finalize “impact fees” or “severance taxes”, which the local municipality or township will receive the bulk of, it will be paramount for township officials to allocate and spend those monies in a way that will best benefit our township. In addition, I believe it is important to more aggressively pursue grant money and programs that would allow the township to better maintain its almost 40 mile road system. I believe that I possess the educational background and experience to best address these concerns and would greatly appreciate your support this Tuesday.

Please vote in the Primary, Tuesday May 17th, at the Hebron Township Building.

Republican voters will find Jake A. Taylor on the ballot as the second selection for Supervisor.

registered voters may write - in Jake A. Taylor for Township Supervisor.

Register Today for the 7th Annual Allegany County Conference on Aging!

Register Today for the 7th Annual Allegany County Conference on Aging!

Don’t miss the 7th Annual Conference on Aging, sponsored by the Allegany County Community Partnership on Aging; scheduled for Thursday, May 19, 2011, at Alfred University, Alfred, New York. This year’s conference is entitled “The State of Aging” and will feature national, state and regional experts who are committed to enhancing quality of life for older adults, caregivers and professionals. Registration costs are just $25.00 for caregivers and $40.00 for professionals. Pre-registration is required by contacting the Allegany/Western Steuben Rural Health Network, Inc. at 585-593-5223, ext. 10.

We are pleased to announce that Dr. Bill Thomas will join us as our inspirational Keynote Address. Dr. Thomas advocates for improved quality of life for all older adults through his online Changing Aging movement and as a world-renowned authority on geriatric medicine and eldercare. Bill is founder of two movements to reshape long-term care globally – The Eden Alternative and Green House Project.

Bill’s Eden Alternative philosophy put forward a radical critique of long-term care and offered a creative way to “change the culture” of nursing homes by bringing growth and laughter into the lives of elders. Now a global non-profit, the Eden Alternative has affiliates in Japan, Australia, Scandinavia, Europe, Canada, the United Kingdom and all 50 states. Bill continues to serve as president.

A self-described “nursing-home abolitionist”, Bill recognized that America’s nursing home buildings are “aging faster than the people living inside them.” This led him to imagine a radical alternative to nursing homes that became known as the Green House® Project. The model creates small, intentional communities where 7-10 elders and staff focus on living full and vibrant lives. Dr. Thomas graduated from Harvard Medical School in 1986, and was selected by the Mead Johnson Foundation as one of the top Family Medicine residents in the country during his three-year residency at the University of Rochester. He earned board certification in Family Medicine in 1992 and added a certificate in Geriatrics in 1994. Dr. Thomas travels the country addressing academics, healthcare professionals, and researchers. His lectures confront issues related to aging and longevity as well as the wise use of prescription drugs.

Mr. Greg Olsen, Acting Director of the New York State Office for the Aging, (NYSOFA) will join conference attendees to share information about the current state of affairs for aging services and its impact on elders. Mr. Olsen previously worked as the NYSOFA Deputy Director of the Division of Policy, Research and Legislative Affairs since 2007.

In addition, participants can choose to attend two workshops offered throughout the day. National and state-wide presenters will share their insight and expertise on vital topics; including social media and technology for long-distance caregivers, social media for professionals, late-life suicide prevention efforts, and Alzheimer ’s disease and Dementia.

The event will conclude with a panel presentation entitled, “The State of Confusion” featuring experts on Medicaid and Medicare Reform. Ms. Ann Monroe, President and CEO of the Community Health Foundation of Western New York and member of Governor Cuomo’s Medicaid Reform Team; Mr. Bill Armbruster, Associate Director of NYS AARP; and Mr. Eric Hausman, NYC Department of Aging, will help audience members better understand the ever changing dynamics of Medicaid/Medicare Reform.

The conference cost includes a continental breakfast, lunch, afternoon refreshments and all conference materials. “I am looking forward to this exciting educational event,” explained Helen Evans, Program Manager of the Allegany/Western Steuben Rural Health Network, Inc. “In the past, over one-hundred fifty professionals, volunteers and community members have participated in the conference. This year we hope to break attendance records with such a dynamic agenda.”

“Without the generous support of our co-sponsors, this conference would not be possible. We would like to thank the following organizations and providers: ACCORD Corporation, Alfred State College, Alfred University, Allegany County Department of Social Services, Allegany County Office for the Aging, Allegany County Senior Foundation, Allegany/Western Steuben Rural Health Network, Inc., Cuba Memorial Hospital, Directions in Independent Living Center, Eden Heights, Ithaca College Gerontology Institute FLGEC, New York Connects-Allegany County, NYS EPIC, Total Senior Care, and Wellsville Manor Care Center.” continued Evans.

Theresa Denhoff has announced that she is seeking the judgeship being vacated by Barbara J. Easton for the 2011 primary race.

Denhoff, who resides in Hebron Township, is a life-long resident of Potter County. She is the wife of Gary (Bill) Denhoff Jr. and the mother of one. She is the daughter of Paul and Cheryl Phelps and the grandaughter of the late Arlo and Esther (Teenie) Scoville and the late Paul and Ethel Phelps.

Denhoff graduated from Coudersport Jr. Sr. High School, where she excelled in sports and in many clubs and community activities. She attended Wilson College in Chambersburg, PA., and in 2001 earned her Bachelors of Science degree with a concentration in Biology.

While at Wilson College she was very active in The Wilson College Government Association serving as Chief Justice. She was a member of Honor Council, served as Senior Class President, Junior Class Vice President and Freshman Class Treasurer. She was a member of Vet Tech Club and received numerous accolades in basketball, softball and field hockey.

Currently, and for the past ten years she has been working as a Licensed Veterinary Technician at the Coudersport Animal Health Center, working under the direct supervision of Dr. Ronnie Schenkein and Dr. Sally Fowler. She is in charge of day to day nursing care and has developed good personal skills while dealing with clients and patients. "In any line of medicine it is very important to keep medical records accurate and to be completely thorough. I will take these accurate and thorough decision making skills into the job of District Judge." During this time she also was on staff at Sagewood, Inc. counseling clients.

Denhoff is involved in the Hebron and Allegany Sporting Club, Genesee Rod and Gun Club, Shinglehouse Womens Softball league and a member of Northern Allegany Basketball Chapter. She has been a PIAA Basketball Official since 2002.

Magisterial District Judges are not required to be lawyers. All must complete an educational course and pass a qualifying examination before they can take office. They must also complete one week of continuing education each year in a program administered by the Minor Judiciary Education Board. All four candidates in this race have not taken this course yet. We are all on the same level playing field.

"The most important part of being a District Judge is to be a fair, honest, knowledgeable and even tempered individual; and I possess these characters. I am a very hard working individual who has a well rounded Liberal Arts education. I am impartial, objective and compassionate."

She would like to point out that some of the best District Judges Potter County has seen have been housewives, radio announcers, and plant workers prior to becoming a District Judge. It takes an individual who is fair yet firm while making life changing decisions for our citizens. Be an informed voter and research the matter by visiting the AOPC website or the Minor Judiciary Education Board. You will realize that electing a younger District Judge will not cost the taxpayers millions in retirement dollars. Like any individual who falls under Pennsylvania State Retirement, one must be at least 50 years of age and put in 24 years of service to have a Full retirement. Don't be misinformed.

"My name appears first on both the Republican and Democratic Ballots in the May 17th Primary. I appreciate your consideration and support."

Magisterial District Court 55-4-01 includes the voting precincts of: Genesee, Clara, Roulette, Allegany, Pleasant Valley, Hebron, North Sharon, South Sharon and Oswayo Townships; Shinglehouse and Oswayo Boroughs.
