Participants in the Wyoming County Prison Board meeting on Aug. 21 included (clockwise from back, left) commissioners Judy Mead, Tom Henry, and Ron Williams; chief clerk Bill Gaylord; sheriff Ned Sherman; district attorney Jeff Mitchell; warden Ken Repsher; judge Russell Shurtleff; and solicitor Paul Litwin. The board regretfully accepted the resignation of Matthew Landsiedel but wished him luck on his new job as a teacher and the promotion of Gene Bulman and Logan Dickinson from part-time to full-time corrections officers. Inmate intakes outnumbered releases by 10 last month, with 86 currently incarcerated at Tunkhannock, nine at other prisons, and three assigned to rehabilitation facilities.

Managing Editor of, dedicated to providing interesting information about life in the Endless Mountains region of northern Pennsylvania. The website - a meager investment with no immediate return - is meant to be community-based and to reflect the varied tastes of its readers. Submissions from legitimate organizations and event coordinators are welcome and will be published as space and time allow. This website is operated by Endless Mountains Media Services. I am seeking submissions of news stories, promotional press releases, and photos for posting with full recognition for the submitter. I am also hoping to build a base of correspondents who would enjoy being my "ears and eyes" in parts of the four county region where news is happening. I am also a self-employed media consultant and freelance writer/editor, providing professional services for businesses, municipalities, and organizations for which retaining a full time staff writer is not a viable option.
