2019 Allegheny River Clean-up
Warren, Pa. (August 21, 2019) — The USDA Forest Service – Allegheny National Forest will be participating in the 11th Annual Allegheny River Clean-up from Saturday, September 7 to Saturday, September 14, 2019.
The Allegheny River Clean-up is an annual event that is a cooperative of several federal, state, county, private organizations, and private citizen volunteers who patrol the Allegheny River’s shorelines using boats and trucks, while others walk to collect trash and debris.
Over the past 10 years the clean-up has had over 3,270 volunteers who have taken 1,457 tires, 436 cubic yards of trash, 116,789 pounds of metal and debris out of the river, making it cleaner and safer.
Shared stewardship events like this allow many organizations to pool their resources to help preserve our waterways for healthy drinking water, protect and improve ecosystems for all wildlife, and make recreation areas safe for the public to enjoy.

Conservation Day 2019
Conservation Day was a huge success once again this year with a large number of participants on hand to make light work of many projects. Students and Teachers from the Tidioute Community Charter School joined forces with the Tidioute Borough and some communtiy volunteers and participated in this annual event known as Conservation Day. Students lend a helping hand in "sprucing up the town" while learning about conservation through community service. We would like to thank everyone for their hard work. Our town looks great and the improvements can be enjoyed by all. A special thank you to the 7th - 12th grade students of TCCS, Ms. Kelly McKean for organizing this event, and to Mrs. Deloris Timco for her flower and design expertise .

Local resident and inventor Carmen Fedele was recently showcased in the following article published in Farm Show magazine.
Simple Invention Turned Into 80,000 Sales
Carmen Fedele, Sr. worked in a truck maintenance shop back in the mid 1990's keeping a fleet of trucks in good repair, which often required repairing or replacing wheel seals. "Back then we didn't have a tool other than a sledge and pry bar to knock the seal out," Fedele says. "Eventuallythe seal came out, but it was difficult and the bearing could easily be damaged."
One evening Fedele went home and started thinking there had to be a better way. "I had a couple pieces of 1/2 by 1-in. scrap metal in my shop and I used a hacksaw to cut a piece about 4 in. long, sharpened one edge and bent it slightly so it would hook behind the seal." Fedele then welded a metal bar perpendicular to the hook for a handle. He tried the puller on a few seals the next day and it worked exactly as he thought it would.
Fedele's invention was so simple and effective that he had the idea patented in 1995. In 2 years he made more than 1,500 in his shop and sold them himself. "I had a band saw set up with jigs to cut the parts, and I bought the handles 100 at a time," Fedele says.
Fedele eventually sold the manufacturing rights to a company that's now owned by SKF Tools. "They still make the tool nearly 20 years later the same way I designed it," says Fedele. "The tool works on most tractor, truck, dolly or trailer wheel seals. I guess the idea was a good one, because about 80,000 have been sold over the years." Source: FARM SHOW MAGIZINE

Bees play a vital role in our everyday lives. Here are a few ways to help save them from becoming extint.
For quite some time now our award winning Tidioute Community Charter School has been growing by leaps and bounds. The school continues to progress and expand with the addition of a new music room completed last year, and the acqusition of the large victorian home adjacent to the school. Another great success story is the FREE lunch program implemented four years ago which provides each and every child with breakfast and lunch at no cost! That's right, FREE to every student! The program continues with the start of the 2018 - 2019 school year and is offered to every TCCS student currently. We are TCCS proud! Go Bulldogs!

A photo of Tidioute made the cover of a booklet entitled "Remember When" which was included with the August 31st, publication of the Warren Times Observer. The photo shows the Cholcolate Shop on main Street in Tidioute, PA Owners: Joe and Thelma Sabella (1959-1969). The Chocolate Shop was the original "convenience store" along with a lunch menu and became a local hangout for Tidioute teens, complete with pinball machines and juke box playing those great songs from the 60's. Up the street were the Mansfield Bar & Cafe and Christy's Market which of course is now known as Evan's Market.
