    Join In On The Fun

    Bradford Journal PhotoTeens wait along Main Street, Bradford, as the Homecoming Parade is about to begin, October 9th. Left to right are Maddy Weinberg 13, Lindsey Wind 13, Haleigh Reid 14, and Bailey Fedak 13. They tell us they are there to see family, to see the crush, to sup-port Bradford, and maybe to try a little candy tossed from the fl oats. And while they didnt mention it, this was only the beginning of the event that would end later in the evening at Parkway Field, with the game itself and the all-important half-time perfor-mance including the crowning of this years King & Queen.

    PennDOT Lists Area Projects And Closings The Pennsylvania Department of Trans-portation began a Route 155 improvement project this week in McKean County. Work this fall and next spring will focus on drainage improvements including new inlets and pipe extensions, as well as re-pairs to existing structures. An 8-mile work zone will stretch from the Route 155/Route 6 intersection in Mc-Kean County to the Potter County line. The work will be done under daylight signing, with fl aggers in the roadway to control traffi c. Drivers should expect short delays, as each work site will feature an alternating traffi c pattern. The project will also feature structure repairs on two bridges. This year, drivers will encounter temporary traffi c signals at a small bridge on Route 155, span-ning Buck Hollow Run near the village of Wrights. Crews will began work as early as Monday, October 12 to replace the bridges wing walls and make deck repairs. Work will take place fi ve days a week. The temporary traffi c signals will enforce an alternating traffi c pattern. 2016 will bring improvement work to a large bridge near the Route 155/Route

    6 intersection at the southern end of Port Allegany. Work will include deck replace-ment and back-wall and bearing repair. Temporary traffi c signals will enforce an alternating traffi c pattern. I.A. Construction Corporation of Frank-lin is the contractor on this $7.9 million job, which will span the remainder of this year and the 2016 construction season. Now that structural upgrades have been completed, the 10-ton gross weight limita-tion on Route 321 in McKean County will be lifted, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. Effective October 13, PennDOT lifted the 10-ton posting on Route 321 from the intersection with Route 6 in Kane Borough to the intersection of Route 59 in Corydon Township. The full depth reclamation project that led to the removal of the weight limit post-ing was made possible by Act 89, Penn-sylvanias far-reaching transportation funding plan. The Pennsylvania Department of Trans-portation today announced that all driver license and photo centers, including its

    5 ENTS WORTH by Grant Nichols Its A Matter Of Opinion...

    Guest ColumnistWould-be President

    -by Bob Perry

    In the event that both the President and Vice President were to vacate their offi ces concurrently, the Speaker of the House in the House would-be sworn-in as President. The House of Representatives are in the throes of fi nding and selecting a new Speaker to replace John Boehner who has announced his plan to step down at the end of October. The presidential line of succession specifi es who can act as presi-dent for a sitting president or president-elect due to death, resignation, removal from offi ce (by impeachment or subse-quent conviction) or incapacity to fulfi ll the offi ce. As we all know, the Speaker is but two heart beats away from becoming President and in the case both the President and Vice President lose their positions, the impor-tance of the qualifi cations of the Speaker becomes of great importance. The eligibility requirements to become President still remain that the person must be a natural-born citizen of the United States, at least thirty-fi ve years old and a resident within the U.S. for at least four-teen (14) years as stated in the U.S. Con-stitution: Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 as well as the Presidential Succession Act of 1947. When we consider who has oc-cupied the position as Speaker over time, many are highly questionable to become the leader of our country as well as the leader of the free-world. Along with candidates seeking the of-fi ce of the Presidency as well as that of the Speaker, there needs to be a litmus test to assure leadership of the highest order is all but guaranteed. It all starts with the indi-vidual and their integrity in seeking the of-fi ces as to their governmental knowledge, experience and leadership necessary to be a proper representative. The political affi l-iation is additionally singled out as to their integrity in supporting individuals seeking the noted offi ces. The electorate is at a disadvantage in the electoral process as they are bombarded by perceptions that in the voting booth are to them reality. The importance of who is selected and voted into the position of Speaker need special attention and con-sideration. The times we fi nd ourselves in has increased to possibility and probabil-ity that our leaders may well be subject to elimination by radical forces. Hope-fully, we do not experience the possibility. But, the probability is markedly increased whenever the President and Vice Presi-dent are in the same location. There devel-ops notable frictions and increased parti-sanship when the Speaker is from within

    the ranks of the House. The Speaker elect does not need to be a member of the House and it would be wise to consider others that have the needed qualities to lead at the highest levels of government. Certain-ly to be considered would be sitting and former governors who have executive ex-perience as well as intimate working re-lationships with the legislative process. The chance that Congress would achieve a working bi-partisanship in creating ma-jor legislation and getting the country on the right track eclipses what we have been subject to seemingly forever. The argument that a governor would be a great choice is they all have been required to work within a budget and would have a priority in leading the House in creat-ing fi scal responsibility and hopefully cre-ating balanced budgets. It is of note that both the House and Senate have a sinister pattern of creating rules that defy any con-ception of the democratic process and an outsid
