Adventures of a wildlife photographer "Hidden Alaska"-Part 8

July 24, 2012

When I last wrote I was out to sea, at the end of Resurrection Bay, south of Seward, Alaska. We had a wildlife filled, beautiful scenic boat ride from Fox Island southward towards the Kenai Fjords. Seeing Killer Whales, Sea Lions, Harbor Seals and a vast variety of birdlife was, to this photographer, incredible. It was becoming quite clear to me that this was really the photographic adventure of a lifetime. Not only was I seeing a vast amount of wildlife and scenery, but we were definitely off the beaten path, so to speak.

County endorses application for ‘shelter’ grant

July 24, 2012

SMETHPORT – A high rate of poverty and substantial unemployment have led to an ongoing “homeless” problem in McKean County.
To address this dilemma, the Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA) in Bradford is seeking a grant of $68,374 from the state Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED).
Using funding from the United Way and other sources, the YWCA will match the grant “dollar-for-dollar,” according to Amy Pierce. She is the executive director of the YWCA, which operates the only “homeless shelter” in McKean County.

Another appeal made to change timber value

July 24, 2012

SMETHPORT – Within a month, Jim Herzog of Smethport again will be appealing the assessment on his timber land in McKean County.
A notice he received earlier this month from the county assessment office shows that the value for “Clean and Green” forest reserve properties is $255 per acre.
Herzog, however, claims that all forest properties under the “Clean and Green (C&G)” program should be valued at only $94 per acre.
