A theft in Fox Township last month remains under investigation by state police at Ridgway. A package delivered by the Postal Service December 17 to the home of a 63 year old Fox Township man was stolen between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm. The package contained a Guillemot Kayak Robo Bevel valued at $95.00 and a Lee Valley Mini Shoulder plane valued at $45.00.

State police at Ridgway arrested a 46 year old Nicktown, PA man for DUI after stopping him on the Quehanna Highway Saturday evening for traffic violations. Troopers withheld his name but say they determined he had been driving his 2015 GMC Sierra under the influence of alcohol.

Tioga County

Minor injuries were reported for an Elmira woman whose SUV overturned Saturday morning in Lawrence Township. Mansfield troopers said Barbara Blew was going west on Route 328 when her Suzuki Grand Vitara went off the road, struck a ditch and rolled over twice before coming to a stop.


Reps. Tina Pickett (R-Bradford/Wyoming) and Clint Owlett (R-Tioga/Bradford) issued a statement in response to an announcement Monday by the Pennsylvania Office of Consumer Advocate (OCA) and Office of Small Business Advocate (OSBA) that they have filed a formal joint complaint against Frontier Communications for its failure to provide reliable service to customers.

“We are encouraged by the actions of OCA and OSBA and look forward to the next step. This is happening because of the hundreds of people who took the time to fill out formal complaint forms about their experiences with Frontier. In fact, nearly 350 people returned those forms to our offices, giving the evidence needed to pursue a formal complaint against the company.

“To further its case, OCA and OSBA will likely hold meetings in the area to gather additional testimony. We will be working with the agencies to finalize dates for those sessions and pass them along as soon as the information is available.
