“People Purpose Planet” Puts Spotlight On Coalition For Christian Outreach

The good work of non-profit organizations continues to be recognized moving into 2019, as Dr. Pete Birchler from the Chiropractic Health Center in Chippewa presented January’s edition of “People Purpose Planet” on A.M Beaver County with Matt Drzik.

This month focuses on the Coalition For Christian Outreach, a national organization that helps college students learn a faith-based, hands-on approach to life in the “real world”; one that takes the focus away from the typical book-based academia most colleges teach. Geneva College graduate (and former Beaver County Radio intern) Caleb Musselman is the CCO leader for the Beaver Falls college, and he spoke about the purpose behind the CCO and the activities/events that promote its practices.

One of these events is the upcoming Jubilee conference in Pittsburgh in late February, an event in which Dr. Birchler is helping by donating proceeds to the CCO and Geneva College for students to go to the event. (See video for further details.)

Bevy Of Subjects Surface During Final Work Session Of 2018

A larger-than-usual crowd descended upon the Commissioners’ weekly work session on December 19, the final session of the calendar year of 2018.

The county was one day removed from learning that the repeal request toward property value reassessment was denied. Now the county has a 30-day window in order to appeal once more or go ahead with the first reassessment in over three decades, so says County Solicitor Garen Fedeles:

 

Both Fedeles and Commissioner Sandie Egley confirmed that the reassessment would be discussed during the executive session.

Meanwhile, District Attorney David Lozier talked about the push for a new joint operation with the Federal Government in order to create a Federal Drug Task Force:

 

The Commissioners’ final meeting for 2018 will be the public meeting on Thursday,  December 27. The office will be closed on December 25 & 26.

“Presents For Patients” Now In Its 35th Year

At this time of year, and at a certain point in most of our lives, the Christmas season becomes less about expecting gifts and more about expecting to be the giver of cheer.

Charities Director Shelli Sommariva talked with Matt Drzik on A.M. Beaver County regarding this year’s drive, including instructions on how to help and what to get.

To contact St. Barnabas Charities regarding Presents For Patients, you can phone them at (724) 625-3770 or visit them online at www.presentsforpatients.com.

Beaver Falls Winterfest & Annual Holiday Parade Set For November 24

As per tradition for the last 30 years, Thanksgiving Weekend will welcome the Christmas season to Beaver Falls as Santa prepares to enter the city at the end of the annual parade. But instead of just milk and cookies (and parade candy), the city will be welcoming him with grilled cheese, carnival games, and rock’n’roll.

This year presents the first ever Beaver Falls Winterfest, presented by the BF Business District Authority as well as the city itself. The festivities will take place on 13th Street between 7th & 8th Avenue next to the Carnegie Library. There will be no fewer than 6 food trucks open, there will be children’s games and activities, and musical entertainment provided by the Blackhawk Academy Choir and For Those About To Rock Academy.

Winterfest organizers Paula Durish, Nancy Valentine-Jones, and Chris Kosanovich joined Matt Drzik on A.M. Beaver County to discuss this year’s Winterfest, as well as the details for the 30th Annual Beaver Falls Lighted Christmas Parade. The parade will kick off at 6, and Santa will be traveling to SantaLand after the parade at the Winterfest site. The food trucks will stay open throughout the parade.

If you have questions or inquiries about Winterfest or the Parade, contact the Winterfest committee at bfchristmascommittee@gmail.com. If you missed the interview from this morning, click on the players below to listen back (or again)!
