I'm 17, so he's using this kind of language with someone a lot younger than him. And I could easily say I'm offended by it, but I can't now. Let him say what he wants. My maturity surpasses his!

Please advise immediately how one is to determine from a post how old that poster is?
Maybe if the poster is under 18 they should end their post with the moniker "Goo Goo" so others realize they're dealing with someone still wet behind the ears.

Hahahahahahahahaha. Ninja 6, I think you need to get a life. I have read all the post on here, and noticed that you enjoy arguing with young kids, and you also like to spout off like you know what you are talking about. But keep up the good work. your post make me laugh. Your so smart you should be the Mayor of Kennerdell.ahahahahahahahaha still laughing

Thank you for your kind words and observations, Bonnie.
So, now you too are a suspect?
Hundreds of finger prints on that bench....yes , most likely. But how many times did you put your fingerprints on the underside of the bench and legs when tossing it over the cliff?
Don't underestimate the Pennsylvania State police when investigating a crime. That's why they are called Pennsylvania's Finest.

Posted by: bonnie    Time/date: 10/31/2012 5:34:15 PM
Ninja 6, Your a joke!!!!! Do you really think the state police are going to waste time and money on a Forensic team and lifting 100s of finger prints off that bench.come on do you even realize how stupid that sounded? It would be nice if they could find out who these local loosers are. but i sure dont know how they are going to get the right prints. dam i think I may have touched that bench a few times myself....

Posted by: smccoy57    Time/date: 10/30/2012 4:49:09 PM
So great to hear that those guys got the bench back to its place! Way to go!!Maybe you will need to bolt the bench to the mountain LOl. I'm thinking the next time someone wants to get destructive they should hurl themselves at a tree, there are plenty to choose from.

If I could, I'd help, too. I mean, I live here in Kennerdell, and when I hear of vandalism happening in Kennerdell, I go insane. These people disrespecting the people here should come forward, and accept their punishment! And NINJA 6, are you a guy or a girl?

Ninja 6 >>>>> Boy would that be great, although they're probably going to find that the ATVtraction group's prints are all over them!...I guess a couple of the guys from ATVtraction tried getting it up over the cliff during the road-clean-up, but could not, due to its weight. As you've read, a report was filed with the state police and they've recommended cameras and reward money...we'll see if we can find a "snitch" amongst the ranks of the Local Loosers...I'd say the liklihood of uncovering a "snitch" is very high. We'll see!!
Whoever spent their efforts pulling the thing back up over the cliff...THANKS A LOT. You should have called and I'd have been happy to have helped.

SAM.....step back a bit. Your last post does not reflect the way of the shadow warrior. Ninja never announce intentions. Ninja demonstrate intentions after lengthly, careful assessment of his quarry. Ninja use all available to him and does not always mean violence either. Learn your quarry and exploit his weakness to your advantage.

So now what is your gripe?
I'm glad you didn't force the Wilson Park Justice Squad into seeking Police assistance. All is well and fine with this tempered logic. You are showing wisdom beyond your years and should be proud of capable, rational thought.

Scott, my husband and I have a camp on North Tunnel Road, and I must say that we really enjoy our camp and our NTR neighbors. We understand your position, and why you closed the trails. However, we do enjoy riding your ATV trails, and thank you for having them open to us all these years. Is there any way we can get permission to ride them again? What would it take? Showing proof of insurance and signing a liablity release form? Becoming a member of the Hunting Club (if slots are available)? Please let us know if there is anything we can do. Perhaps we could buy a flag or sticker to put on our ATVs to show that we are "legal."

Posted by: Real Estate Legal Eagle    Time/date: 9/11/2012 1:27:07 PM
Wanted to address all myths RE: “private roads”; there is plenty of legal precedence here. Being involved in real estate law, in Venango County, I'm intimate with the statutes as they relate to Venango County’s many, so called, “private roadways”. Here are the legal facts:
1. The true privacy of any “private road” is only as private as the road’s least private resident who has a “lawful right of ownership and / or the right to grant entry and / or use” by means of ownership or lease.
2. No one can legally force another to make any contribution(s) toward the maintenance of any private road; owners who live on a private road are not allowed, by law, to levy any types of taxation or assessment.
3. The only TRUE private road is a road that has only one resident on it and is wholly owned one single individual or corporation. In cases such as this, it is no longer considered to be a private road; it’s a driveway.
4. If there are two or more residents, the resident that’s furthest down the road has a “Right of Privacy” beyond the first and subsequent residences, so long as there are well-established, safe points of “turn-around & regress”, without incurring eminent danger in doing so or by encroaching on another’s property.
5. If, in the case where permission is granted by a deeded and / or legal grantor to a grantee, the grantee shall have full legal right to make ingress, egress & regress up to a point where grantor’s property lies, and beyond, if it is deemed unsafe to make a turn-around at the point where grantor’s property terminates.
6. In the event that any individual or individuals attempt to block grantee’s egress, ingress or regress, to a property that grantor has provided permission to access, via roadways, easements or right-of-ways that are the legal right of the grantor, it is considered to be an unlawful act, and the actors may be charged as unlawful restraint, harassment or assault.

Looking for a camp or property along the Allegehny River for sale.

Posted by: Scott S    Time/date: 9/8/2012 4:39:31 PM
Yes, it is a fact that NTR is a private road and we own two fairly long sections of it. One of our river frontages is just up-stream of Benner's (basically the last large rock on the left...before the tunnel)...you'll find a survey pin in the middle of the rock); you will not see the other survey pins that were illegally removed by the obvious individual whose house is about 15' from our property-line. No, we do not contribute to the road fund because other parties have their boat docks, boats and trailers on our property, so, the actual users of our river-frontage should be pick-up-that-tab. NTR accesses our property and IS ALSO for the use of OUR GUESTS (all you folks seem to forget to mention that point...we will choose who our guests are) at any time that we choose. As far as the "pain" that we are feeling...I have no clue what you're talking about!...please elaborate because I'd love to know and I believe "Life is Good in Kennerdell". Finally, the individual who has his pontoon trailer parked on our property up stream of Benner's along the mountain-side...please have it removed in the next two weeks or it will be towed away. Once towed...you'll need to bring you wallet to get it out of "hock". THANKING YOU ALL IN ADVANCE!!

First of all, make no mistake about who is posting here. My name is Bill Fawcett. Last post was by me was "Outsider looking in". If you don't have the cahoonies to post you name, please remain silent. I was a Wilson Park property owner until summer of 2009. I sold out because I didn't like Obamas economic plans. I didn't sell because I didn't like Kennerdell or its people. Some of the nicest folks I have ever met live in Kennerdell. Hi Tater! I never did like the circus-like atmosphere of ATV riders in WP or my neighbors who ignored their children. I miss all the good things, but none of the bad. I asked permission everywhere I hunted, fished, and rode. I don't know how the entitlement crowd came to think they have a privledge to ride on others property, but maybe the land owners were too lax or comprimising. If ATV traffic was banned or controlled, I'd consider "investing" in the area again. Yea, Kennerdell is broken, but the fix is simple. Don't bother responding to this if your name is a secret. Live free or die. -Bill

Posted by: NTR History    Time/date: 9/7/2012 8:31:11 PM
NTR was always very peaceful and people did respect our private road signs, yes we are a private road. We now have people, teens and seniors careing less about legality and warning of not being wanted.
Please don't say poor Charlie or poor Scott for they invited and encouraged people to use these trails. We have had the Snyder hunting club meet at the beginning of NTR for summer picnics, quad rideing, and hunting. Why not on his front yard? Last summer we put speed bumps up, what did we have but Charlie rideing with children showing them how to jump the bumps (hi speed). Scott and Charlie are now faceing the pain they have placed upon us for years.
What comes around goes around.

If the road is PRIVATE, that means that it is owned by a person or company, not a governmental entity. The owner of the property has the right to restrict access to the road to anyone that they choose.

The property owners pay to maintain the road. Unless you have permission to be on the road, you can find yourself in trouble. At the very least, you are trespassing, and can be arrested.

if i had my own property with trails and bumps i wouldd put it there for people to have a good time not to put if up for a little and then say one daay ohh i think i am going to close it and piss everyone off. if there is trash then get off your lazy buttts and clean it up!!!!!!!! i agree wit the rider guy that the police should not get involved in it because it is private property! my family owns property up there too and they allow people to ride on it all they want!!!!! i know that you guys don't care what i have to say but i don't care i am just saying what is true!

450 rider:
Start a war with the State Police and they will be spending a lot of time in Wilson Park and no one will be riding unless they are sober, have the required head gear,licensing and insurance. I think you have a plan I can agree with. Have a nice Wilson Park day.

How many of you have ever heard this?.....( Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.) teens let me ask you this and please try to reply with an honest respectful answer. If you made a 4 wheeler race track on your property, and you had jumps and such and you really were proud of how nice it was and had hours of fun,and some people decided ..hey that looks cool I think I will just use it for my own fun. Then they started trashing out your track. making pot holes and ruining your trails you put in.and if you tried to keep them off your land by placing trees and such, and they still came in and ruined it, how would you feel? I know I would be mad. Thats how the property owners are feeling up here.Lets just all try to respect each other.Then maybe nobody will threaten to call the police and we can all enjoy the beauty of this wonderful area.Is that really to much to ask? Enjoy this beautiful area that the Lord has given us. I know that you are not bad kids and you just want to have fun,but there is a way to do that without causing so much grief, and I know that you are all smart enough to figure it out. have a great day

I think the last post by Rodney explains why the majority of folks come to Kennerdell. For years generations of family have come up to enjoy this pristene area.There are many ways to enjoy yourself up here, biking, hiking and boating to name a few.I understand riding your quads would be another way. So I quess what everyone is trying to explain is that you should have boundaries and limitations.I enjoy walking and in doing so almost had both of my little kids run over.This was on a access road not a trail so restraint needs to be put into play when riding through the public areas honestly that is all they are asking! Safety and respect should be utilized.

First off this is the first time I have posted on this site, but have read every post that is on it right now. I am a 55 year old man that enjoys the area and the people of the Kennerdell area. I am one of the campers in Kamp Kennerdell and we have the same problem there that Wilson park has with loud machines and dust. I have many times stopped men, women, boys and girls of all ages as the pass my camper and had a chat with them about a little respect. My camper sits right along the camp road that accesses the trails and we get more then campers and members of ATV Traction going by. For the most part everyone is very nice and polite after I have explained my point of view. I do ride and so does my wife, but we respect the property owners and yes I have stopped and not only asked for permission to ride across property but have also thanked them many times. We hold a party each year and have any where from 15 to 20 people come up and ride for the weekend. They are given the rules for riding and the follow them of they are never invited again. I guess the whole point of my post is you are not entitled to anything, or have the right because it is a free country. Let's all just respect each other and get along. Any of you that would like to stop by and chat, I am always willing to listen and give opinions. Just head down the camp road at Kamp Kennerdell and I have the BIG SHED, stop there is always a nice fire, good people and a cold beverage. This is just my humble opinion and willing to try to get this all settled and to move on with a great community with great people. Sorry sometimes I just ramble hope this all makes sense and I look forward to meeting some of you in the future.

wilson park is private property and if you call the cops, most of us will get away. they have cars that ide personaly love to see try to go down a trail. we all have sport quads that will reach speeds of 80 to 90 mph. not trying to be an ass but calling the cops would be the wrong way to handle it, would you like it if we called them on you for partying to loud? or riding around a little to fast? stand up for what you beleive in and do something yourself. stop them and tell hem how you want it. compromise. its works alot better than getting the po po involved.

I would like to say how amazed I am at how ppl think! First off, I don't blame Charlie or Scott for trying to keep ppl off of their property. We should be thanking them for the years they did let us ride. If it was my property I would have stopped ppl a long time ago. But can we totally blame the kids? If you grow up with no role models to teach you to respect ppl and their property then it's hard to know better yourself. I am sure if ppl started riding on these folks' property then they would be fast to complain. I often wonder if these parents take out a life ins. policy on their kids, buy them a bigger quad, and tell them it's ok to ride on the main roads. Are they just waiting to collect? Really don't tell me you care or love your kids! How many ppl have to get killed to make you care? And to the "ATVer in Kennerdell" you sure have some nerve to threaten to keep riding in front of Charlie's place till he opens HIS trails. Are you kidding me? If you want to ride buy your own property to destroy! You didn't pay for his property or pay taxes on it so deal with it! It's really sad how many kids have no one to show them how to: 1. Respect people and their property, 2. Work hard for the things they want in life and not expect every one else to give them everything, and 3. Earn their own respect. If you were real parents you would know the things your kids were writing on here and teach them respect.

i understand that you guys think i am disrespectful... yes at times i do think i am disrespectful but not all of the times... but the dust i CANNOT help even if i am going 5 mph! so on that sense you will just have to deal with it! my "mommy and daddy" do teach me things but when all you guys do is complain and yell at us riding and having fun they think it is ridiculios!!!! so they don't say anything to us!! us teen atv riders will not go on your private property anymore! but about the dust i can't do anything about and about us going fast and having fun! and no i do not have a job but i do have school!

To Pissed Off Teen... I really didn't think I would have to reiterate the sentiment of my previous post, as I thought I made things pretty clear, but here it goes (again): No one cares what you think. You have no tangible stake in Kennerdell, so your opinions of what should or should not be allowed are irrelevant. Any trail you ride on in the Kennerdell area is on other peoples' property, more specifically, not your property. I too enjoy use of the trails (respectfully and with landowner permission) and have a hell of a good time with everything Kennerdell has to offer (I am not one of the old folks who just complains). My primary concern, though, is that your expressed entitlement and claim to the trails sours the relationship between landowners and riders. What is the purpose of approaching them with your opinion in such an inflammatory manner? What is that going to accomplish? You catch more flies with honey than vinegar...

To the pissed off teen,
It is very clear that you only care about your own good times at camp. other people come to camp to have a good time too. But we cant enjoy ourselves because of you.Speeding up and down the roads til wee hours in the morning with your loud quads. stirring up the dust till it looks like at cloud coming at us. And you say if you dont like it LEAVE. well I think the law will be on the side of the property owner.You know the ones who pay taxes so they can have a place here to enjoy. not some little immature jerk like you who thinks we owe you a place to destroy .There Next time your mommy or daddy bring you to their camp try showing some respect are people who live in the park and may have to get up to go to work, and others who just come up to enjoy a pleasant weekend. Talk around wilson park is that they are going to fight back. We have decided to get the LAW involved.So the next time you are racing up and down the roads late at night and you see headlights BEWARE, or when you are creating so much dust also BEWARE the police might be in that cloud that you have created.
You may be a pissed off teen but we are pissed off property owners and we have had enough of your disrespect. And dont think for one minute that we will LEAVE. There are more of us than there are of you. and we are a whole lot smarter than you. so the next time mommy and daddy bring you to camp try being a little more respectful so we can all enjoy ourselves. And really .... you say after a week of working you come to have fun.Do you even have a job? And may I just say this.... I cant wait to see how COOL you are when your standing there in front of the state police.

to reality check... someone need to give you a reality check! i do believe that people should not be riding at like 1 in the morning but anything before that should be allowed! and about the property thing i believe that people should not ride on other peoples property but when you cross of fun and good trails thats when i get pissed off. if you don't like it then don't come up! us atv riders should have fun unlike you boring people who sit outside and complain about us! why do you think the trails are put there? to look pretty? just to be there? no they are there for people to have fun and enjoy!

I am writing this specifically to “Pissed Off Teen”, “P O’d Teen”, “450rider”, and “ATVer in Kennerdell”. First off I am guessing by the titles, grammatical errors, and disrespectfulness that you are all teenagers. I find your disrespectfulness absolutely amazing. I clearly understand it is not your fault as your parents apparently have taught you nothing about respect; however, I hope that at one point in your life you realize how wrong you really are. Charlie and Scott have opened up their property to you for years, and quite honestly if it was me I would have closed those trails years ago. Here you are being rude to these people, but let me ask you this: Have you EVER once said “Thank You” to any of the property owners who let you ride on their land? Teens such as yourselves are the reasons the trails should be closed. Oh, and for the one who said “There are lots of us that are very mad and if we've been having some beers we now take risks of seeing policeman when running down the roads.” All I can say is REALLY? I am embarrassed for you. Idiots, stay off the road it’s a law for a reason. The sad thing is that not even your parents guide you right from wrong in situations such as this. Its amazing to me that your parents not only let you drink as irresponsible teens, but then on top of it let you ride your 4wheelers and ride them on main roads at that!

OR BREAK THROUGH IT!!! SO HAHAHAHAHA ON YOU!

Wow, I cannot believe some of the things that have been posted on this site. Kennerdell is and will always be a wonderful place. I do not understand where all the hate comes from for the people that live or camp on NTR. I have been coming up here since i was a baby and my dad since he was a small child. The people on NTR are all friends of mine, and i know they have may back if I ever need anything. Just because we do not dress prim and proper, or act like we have a stick up our asses doesn't mean that we are not good people. We like to have fun on the weekends and while some of us may take it too far on occasion I am sure everyone does we all make mistakes. NTR is a private road, and we maintain it with money we raise and labor we provide. I cannot tell you one person on this road that has a problem with people coming down the road as long as they are respectful and drive slowly. (and do not drive down the road trying to provoke an argument by saying this is not a private rd.) As for the person saying that we as the residents of NTR are making the property value drop and making it harder to sell camps ... good if the people buying cabins on our road do not like the people we are, then we dont want them here. We are one big family on this road, and we are trying to keep it that way. I do not mind being close to my neighbors because i love them all.

I sell real estate for a living and there are lots of homes for sale in Kennerdell and the surrounding area. Typically, realtors must show neighborhoods, school district details and surrounding properties before any discerning buyer is going to lay his money down on the table to buy a house in any neighborhood. If you think that "goon squad members" standing in the middle of North Tunnel Road, flexing their beer muscles is adding value to your NTR properties, you're dead-wrong. These jack-asses are ruining things for everyone and nobody wants to be anywhere near North Tunnel Road, and, conversely, no one wants to see any of the North Tunnel Road residents anywhere near their properties. WARNING; the next time I see the drunken duncle standing in the middle of the road directing traffic with his glowing nose (actually much better than a flashlight), I am going to "floor it", watch them take a dive and then let God sort it out. I'm tired of all the losers who wear the biggest hats but have not a single cow in their field.

I been a member of this community for over 16 years and must say that this past weekend was the most quiet holiday weekend I've seen in Wilson Park relating to ATV's ever. If this is a reflection of Mr.Schneider and Mr. Myers closing of riding trails I'm all for it. I ride too but the residents of Wilson Park have been putting up with loud pipes and racing in the middle of the night by people with no regard to others who too come up for the same reason, to enjoy the area.This attitude of 'that's the way it is' is not right.
This racing is doing the same damage to Wilson Park roads and most in the middle of the night have been juiced up pretty good. Which brings another issue to mind. DEATH. I couldn't tell you how many have died since I started coming up here. One fellow bought his camp and died in an ATV crash several weeks later. They life flighted a young girl out of the field this year.This is ridiculous. The common element here is alcohol and assholes. Have a nice day.

Dear Pissed Off Teen >>>>>If you were a property owner who spent your savings to buy vacant land, then, at your own expense, installed & maintained trails for the community's enjoyment and then, ALL OF A SUDDEN, the people who used the trails increased dramatically as a result the MANY miles of trails that have been shut-down since 1996 due to bike trails, people who enjoy quiet, construction and the many irresponsible & rude riders...leading to an overwhelming increase in traffic and noise on us, which then causes the types of damage we're seeing with trees, erosion and drainage to accelerate…and the idiocy of complete strangers who arbitrarily choose to re-route the trails whenever a mud puddle forms, to a point that our backyard now looks like a mine-field of blockades and fallen / placed trees. Well, I hope you get the point that WE’VE HAD IT. If our property had been damaged to the degree that Mr. Myer’s property (east of Wilson Park) has been damaged, we would have shut-it-off years ago and I’m surprised that he is allowing it to continue. Our backyard will look like the trail out of Wilson Park…WHEN PIGS FLY. What do you think the cost will be to fix the damages that have been done and are you, or dada, prepared to make a contribution to cover the expense?
Our property is leased to many good people who pay good money to hunt and camp; it’s based upon these revenues that we are able to do as good of a job as we do to continue the never-ending maintenance. Bottom line, it’s gotten out-of-hand and, obviously, there are a lot of pissed-off people throughout the community. Our trails are for the EXCLUSIVE USE of the hunters and the campers who have demonstrated proof-of-insurance. If you want to use the trails, we need to have your dada name us as “an insured” on all your ATV’s policies, we need a Motorized Vehicle Liability Release form on record and we’ll accept your membership into the hunting club while we have slots still available.

The road exists because it used to be the railroad tracks and when they built the tunnel the land was parcelled and sold. Your deed states the road is a right of way for other owners to reach their property not a public road. The roads have always been private and maintained by the owners on the road. I remember when common manners existed and alot of disrespect comes from 30-50 year olds where do think the younger ones learn it. Kennerdell is a beautiful place and should be respected.

Typical selfish teenage entitlement. You clearly have no concept of earning anything. You believe that if it exists in the world, then somehow, it is yours to use, abuse, and eventually destroy. You have no skin in the game so do everyone a favor and stop providing opinions like they carry any weight. Leave the discussion to the adults who actually have a stake in the area, and remember that in terms of contributing to the world, at this point in your life, you run a substantial negative balance. You simply absorb resources without providing anything of value in return. And dust is not the real issue here; that issue is just a symptom of the greater problem: the lack of respect for your neighbors and the land owners in the area. But I guess that would require you to consider someone else’s plight instead of just your own…something you’re clearly incapable of doing.

Posted by: pissed off teen    Time/date: 9/3/2012 2:55:16 PM
to the people who are complaining, it is RIDICULIOUS that you block off the trails for us to ride because we like having fun. Also about the dust, it is not our fault that it hasn't rained, even if we go slow there will STILL be dust so if yoou don't like it then LEAVE!!!!!!!!! everyone comes up here to have fun and not to get yelled at for everything we do!!! and just to let the people know who blocked off the trails, we will ALWAYS FIND A WAY AROUND IT!!

First off North Tunnel Road was never a private road and it still isn't.. It was an access road to the rail road tracks back in the day an for the gas company to get back there! And second, as we were making our way to the bike trail on North Tunnel Road, we did not get one smile or wave, what a miserable crew.. You could not give me a place down on your cliff side "waterfront" property. Nor would I want to be hanging on or over a hillside and climb up and down those steps or have no property to even park the car or have a fire. Certainly wouldn't wanna look out the window into my neighbors place either! And to the guy with the black jeep and big nose that told us to slow down at 10 miles per hour, get real and suck it!

We would like to thank Charlie Meyers and Misty Ridge for closing off some key trails that now help to limit access to members only from both directions. I am a member of the hunting club and have been for many years. We have noticed such a big improvement in the radical riding, the noise, the dust, the disrespect and the ATV traffic in the past few weeks that Kennerdale is actually now becoming tolerable enough to, once again, consider becoming fulltime residents. We hope that things remain as they are and that the people who do not belong, stay where they belong; at HOME!

I don't know if my post will get read since it doesn't begin with an insult. I'll start it with some questions...What the hell happened to Kennerdell? How many folks have to get killed or life-flighted? Why does everyone feel entitled to ride on someone elses private property? Why the neighborhood battles(north tunnel,south tunnel,Wilson,Brandon)? As a past property owner, I spent many weekends there and lived there full time for half a year. The week days were Heaven on earth, the weekends were the other place. Kennerdell has become an "occupy" encampment where folks have lost respect for each other.
Suggestion to the community: Why not try to promote ONE ATV-less weekend a year. Violators to pay a friendly $5 fine to the local fire department.

This past weekend Wilson Park had some vandalism, We are sick of it up here and whoever from whereever is going to be famous. We are installing camera's to catch these acts and whoever is responsible will be made an example. There is a lot of hard work taking care of the park every year and the respect for the park is at an all time low. So I would suggest that you spread the word for everyone to just stay out of the park.

First off I would like to start by saying that half of this stuff being posted is highly critical of the community and at the top it says it will not be posted but I see that's wrong, but oh well...

I would just like to say that there should be no complaints about N. Tunnel Rd. unless you are a resident from there because you have no business being on our road in the first place if you don't own property on our road. And to the person that said that the bike trail is public property I absolutely agree with you on that but you used a private road as access to the bike trail therefore you have no right to complain.

We wouldn't mind any one from Wilson Park or anywhere else riding ATVs on our private road as long as you have respect and ride slowly, but after repeatedly asking them to slow down and take their time riding past camps it gets old and no one wants to deal with that. (Plus the vandalism needs to stop). And as for the big boulders being dangerous I believe that speeding down the road on ATVs is a little more dangerous because we have children and dogs running around. Plus it is not only people from wilson park that are told to slow down, we also tell the people who own property on the road to slow down so don't think we are just doing it because you don't own property on our road.

Plus that whole thing about the inbred drunkers, duncles, funcles, grandfuncles, and whatever the hell else kind of strikes me as odd because you obviously don't know these people at all because I have a guess on who you may be referring to and yes they have bad moments but they would always give you the shirt off their backs.

Lastly, I would like to give props to the guy who made the comments about the grammer mistakes and the "licking of the playgrounds" that was freakin' hillarious.

Really people, is this what Kennerdale has become now? Quad riding in Wilson Park should have some rules but how would you enforce them? Where are the parents? Drunk somewhere that is where they are at. As far as the land owners blocking there property, not much you can do they own it. It is a shame that few mess it up for the rest.

kennerdell resident, i would like to know who these mentally challenged peolple are. and so the fire department knows who it is? what can be done about it?. there just kids having fun, back when you were a kid im sure you did the same thing, loud quads, need for speed, you know stuff like that. kennerdell has always been a hotspot for riders. the trails are fun and the scenery is nice. therefore it attracts campers with quads. as long as nothing personal is getting damaged who cares.

Posted by: barry    Time/date: 8/7/2012 10:58:41 AM
Hey wilson creeper. opps I mean reeper. let me just say this.... I do agree that the quads are too loud. your suggestion of a 10 oclock quiet hour is quite funny.and that will never happen as you well know.and for the quads belonging in the woods, well wilson park is the woods. and anyone owning land in here has just as much right to ride on the roads in here as you do. Are you trying to get a position as the mayor of wilson park?Do you think the park belongs to you? We have all had to put up with things in here that we may not like. so get over it.It has been like this for years and I really dont see it changing any time soon.If it bothers you that much maybe you should move out.And I really dont believe that 2 people ruined it for everybody.and calling them little bastards was a bit harsh.what are they really doing wrong? They are riding quads, and going to fast. Ok yes maybe they are but does that make them bastards?I dont think so. but it does tell me that you are an ass for saying that.and as far as them not paying for the roads... well I say if you have been paying for the roads ... you are not getting your moneys worth.and as far as saying that you will get a backhoe and move the trees that Mr. Meyers placed to block the trails...I hope he calls the police on you if you do that.It is his Property not yours. you are complaining of 2 little bastards and them not having respect... where the hell is yours? YOU DISGUST ME !!!!

On Sunday while I was showing the tunnel to some guests at the north end I stepped off the asphalt only to step on nails strategically placed next to the trail in an effort to stop atv's from passing under a cable to the bike trail or adjacent property. Now I understand that trespassing in these parts is as serious as voter fraud and child endangerment but if it had been one of the children I was with I would have found the person responsible.

Sorry to say that my family and I also live off North Tunnel Road and, even though we've been land-owners for decades, we're constantly under the watchful scrutiny of the many evil eyes of "The Clan that's Married the Clams". I have never met such a group of inbred drunkards in my life; we choose to avoid that class of people. Cuncles, funcles, duncles, grandfuncles, cheaters and wife-beaters is their way of life and the whole town knows it. They know who they are and it's no wonder that Mr. Myers was not able to sell those beautiful pieces of property to the far-North; who the hell would want to drive past that cluttered hell-hole where the banjos play...NOT ME! Oh, by the way, we better never see you come past our houses on your ATVs; you've ruined it for yourselves and everyone else and now your time has come to pay the piper.

My family and friends respectfully enjoy the beauty of Kennerdell, the River, the trails, and the community. We were very saddened to hear of the death of a young woman, in an unfurtunate atv accident, last night on Brandon road. Then today, as we were leaving, we learned a whole family had somehow gone over the road near the same spot!

As a property owner, nature lover, and respectful ATV rider, I wish some people in the Brandon Acres community wouldcare more for their neighbors, less for creating restrictions for others, and just be more neighborly.

Today our friend had thousands of $ in damage to their truck, due to one property owners negligence, when their tree fell over their property line and on to his truck, while he was parked their w/ permission of the property owner whohas repeatedly asked the owner of the adjacent property for coorporation in maintaining his property.

Fortunately none of us, or our children, were injured, but it was a close call. After the tragedy that occurred last night, I think we could all do abetter job of being neighborly instead of creating obstacles and creating dangerous situations for law abiding citizens who come to Kennerdell to enjoy the beauty and the weekend after a hard week's work.

We're glad to hear that access to Misty Ridge has been blocked to North Tunel Rd residents. They have blocked access to all of us who have enjoyed the scenic views from North Tunel Rd and we don't want to see them using OUR roads in Wilson Park to skirt the blockage up on Pine Hill Run. And, the jumbo-dumbo with the big red nose who is patroling North Tunnel Road like some kind of a troll (when he's not drunk or flat on his face after his daily fall); be aware that you're "in our sights". Stay at home if you know what's good for you; you've got plenty of room to ride in your own back yards lol!

Sorry about the delays in posting and also very sorry for the tragic situations that occurred this weekend and last weekend. Given the chaos, we've blocked access to our property from North Tunnel Road and will now be monitoring all people entering the property from across our driveway. If any of you are not aware, our property is designated for the use of Kamp Kennerdell customers and the members of Misty Ridge Hunters Association. We expect you'll "get the word out" that we DO NOT WANT YOU TO CONSIDER OUR PROPERTY AS YOUR PLAYGROUND...KEEP OUT! The damage that's been caused is costly and time consuming and we're tired of being responsible for paying the bills and doing the dirty work. If we hear you coming as a result of “aftermarket” “BIG MAN mufflers…we’ll be waiting for you and you’ll have your keys yanked; they will be returned by the PA State Police along with a $300 trespassing citation.
With the death of Bob “Hawkeye” Gerlach, the hunting clubs will have some turn-over this year, so, hunting club members need to act quickly to reserve their positions and have a “Motorized Liability Release” on file with us, in the event that they choose to enter our acreage via ATV. Thank You!!

So up here in Wilson Park, we have an ADULT flying around like a real asshole, with no respects for other campers or children riding around. Let the kids ride, atleast they are not out on the streets. Bikes don't need to be so loud.. There needs to be quiet hour at 10pm. Quad riding belongs in the woods not flying around on the park roads. Oh and we all would like to say a big thank you for the two inconseridate little bastards who ruining it all for everyone, and now all our trails are blocked off. There is a bunch of us in Wilson park that pay to keep these road updated, the ones that don't pay like to tear it up. And maybe we will have to come down with chain saws and a backho and move all the stuff blocking trails. Don't let two people ruin it for all

He owns the land and can do what he wants with it. It may be your "playground", but its his property. Your comments and threats of legal action jeopardize future use of trails in Kennerdell, so before you open your entitled mouth again, try not to be so selfish and think about the rest of us that enjoy using them as well. It's people like you (threaten legal action) thats what is wrong with this country. No responsiblity for your own actions...pathetic.

ATVer in Kennerdell

I am certainly not an expert at the English Language, but by the way you wrote your rant, you sound like you are way too young to be on an ATV in the first place. I think my elementary school aged kid can write better than you.

It is also PAINFULLY obvious that you do not respect "Mr. Myers" and his property, and that is most likely why he is blocking you from riding on HIS property, that he is free to do with what he wants! He and other people are getting mad at people like you thinking you are entitled to ride on his/their property, and are ruining it for the rest of us that do respect the owners property. You are not entitled to ride on the property, he was letting you out of the kindness of his heart! You should be thanking him, and other property owners for the privilege of being able to ride on their property, and not making threats to them!

And as far as "liking" playgrounds, if that is what gets you off, something is wrong with you!

A REAL ATVer in Kennerdell!

Mr Meyers you are indangering many people placing big rocks where ATVs and quads have always run and your movements have caused injurys to friends who are concidering actions agains you. the injurys are the result of your negligents. How wood you lick it if your playground was close in front of you? There are lots of us that are very mad and if we've been having some beers we now take risks of seeing policeman when running down the roads.How can you do this and think you can get away wit it? We have chian saws and will open it up again soon and will be lode in front of your house in the night hour until our trials are open againe.

Old Goober had the privilege of attending the Rockland VFD gun raffle this past weekend and had an experience of a lifetime. Goober made many new friends and hope more show up for the fall raffle. The food was beyond expectations provided by the women of Rockland VFD. Ladies, job well done.

Can you provide recent examples where crude things have been written about others? I think things have tamed-down nicely since it was requested that people "watch their words". I took a look back and I really don't see anything recent that could be construed as "inappropriate". Please take a look at the various blogs that are all over the Internet and you'll see that things are not always "peaches, cake & cream"...this is a rough world that we're living in and you need to get out and explore it to see just how lucky you are to have been raised in beautiful Kennerdell and just how sheltered of a life you've led; if you think this blog is inappropriate, well, let's just say that you're "in for a REAL shocker". Let me be the first to welcome you to THE NEW WORLD & THE NEW NORMAL!
Please do your part to become a part of the solution...not part of the problem. I'm sure you must be able to think of SOMETHING positive to say because what you'd written is just more "fuel on the fire"?

Posted by: North Kent Resident & Owner    Time/date: 3/10/2012 10:06:36 AM
Lisa, although leases are possible, everything that I'm aware of on NKR is private property and if you buy a piece of ground, everything that's on it is sold with the property. There are no rent fees, however, the property and structures are subject to taxation but Rockland Township, Venango County and the Cranberry School District, unless you're talking about an RV that's licensed for on-road usage; in this case, the property is taxed as vacant l;and and the taxes are pretty reasonable. Hope this helps. BTW, there are properties on NKR that are currently up-for-sale. Call 814-549-0066 if you're interested in one such property.

It was actually the Brantners camp, their basement caught fire. They were in Cranberry getting breakfast when the fire broke and their dog was trapped inside.

You must realize we in the Kennerdell Community live in a world not encumbered by the daily hubbub of our suburban enclaves and are free to enjoy our beautiful countryside and experience God's nature and the nature of God. With that said, it isn't hard to figure out why one would be spending his or her time stuck in front of an internet invented by Albert Gore.
We have the finest news sources from the big city.....every weekend the city folk tell us whats been going on in the outside world and once a week the wagon train arrives from Franklin with the latest local news.
If yall hear anything on the innernet, let us know here....

minerial rights do not include everything from your grass to hell, when a gas co. leases. they lease a certain shale level, so if the charley only has a shallow lease, he doesnt have the marcellus rights unless it has been agreed by the land owner. chesepeke can lease the land again fron the land owner like they are doing on n. kent road. they came and surveyed down the power lines, and what i have heard that they didnt have someones permission to survey. i am not against drilling, but try to talk to a person that has an existing well or lease to find out more info before you stroke that pen for the lease and the big bucks

To the cowardly writer (posted November 22nd under 'Scott s') who wrote "Your president of the club is a joke"... come on down and meet the Misty Ridge President (Bob "Hawkeye" Gerlach and clear the air, vent any issues and right any wrongs you may have rather than bashfully hiding behind your alias like a pussy. Between chemo treatments and stage 4 cancer our club President reengaged 50 plus members again and hosted another club party. If Hawkeye can't resolve your issues then see me and I'll gladly work with you. Be a stand up member and do something instead on rant and rave on this community web page. If not, we'll GLADLY DROP YOU and find a replacement as we have a waiting list for hunt club members!

It is spelled "Marcellus Shale". Instead of bashing Charlie Myers you should try to learn something from his tremendous business sense. Keeping mineral rights after selling a property is not uncommon. In fact, it would be a very wise decision given that gas companies are paying upwards of $2,000/acre.

Posted by: The Real Scott S    Time/date: 11/23/2011 8:47:45 AM
And now we have some lame dufus who is using my name to make posts on our community page as if it were me. (See November 22nd). Yes, in case you were just born, mineral rights are a separate entity and are not typically sold with surface rights. Yes, Mr. Myers does own mineral rights under a major portion of our property and we respect them. He also owns mineral rights under many other folks properties (including State Game Lands #39) which goes back for generations. Further, our hunting club president has always done well and if you are not happy with the club, please make yourselves scarce...we offer a money back guarantee. Further, if you were so stupid to have bought property in Pennsylvania without researching who owns OG&M...well then you're just, well...STUPID! YOU are the one who needs to correct your approach because you're obviously "in over your head".

Charles Meyers.... Are you the charlie myers who went and bought everyones mineral rights? You know when you and your pal Scott sell land to people? Folks when you actually buy land, you dont own mineral rights... Then after you own it, the folks from Marceleous Shale will seize your property and give you $900 an acre.... And guess who's wallet gets fat... Mr. meyers.... Look at all the stripping thats going on already..... This is a joke...Scott every bit of land that gets sold, comes with all mineral rights.. Correct?

On November 7 I found my bulldozer had been vandalized. It was setting on Scott Schneider's property which is a restricted area for four wheelers. So I felt it was safe there. Apparetly these were some trespassers that came onto the property. I also own property where four-wheelers and two-wheelers run. I have never posted any of my properties, but with the actions of these unsupervised children carrying on, I am beginning to have other thoughts. I have areas in my woods that these people keep making new trails to suit themsevles. I put up "No Four-wheelers" signs on a couple trails that I did not want four-wheelers. Come the week-end certain signs were tore down. So parents you better supervise your children and keep them more under control! Or maybe it may not of been children, though I have my suspicions. I am offering a %500.00 reward for the arrest and conviction of this crime. Would appreciate any information anyone has to the where-abouts of these vandals. Please call 814-385-6473 with any details.

MAZ - Since recession, we have not been pushing anything because the market has been dead. What is your intention and why would you not consider buying a house that already been built and ready to go. At this point, you're going to get the "best bang for your buck" by purchasing an existing home...you'll get it for 50-66 cents on the buck! With the high costs of building materials...I would not consider a "new home start" at this time, however, if you insist, I'm sure we can accommodate you with something.

Posted by: Scott S    Time/date: 9/21/2011 8:24:26 AM
Mr. Riddle
I am not sure where you've gotten your information, but it is incorrect. The prices range from $1,280 - $1,480 per year unless there are special hoops that need to be jumped thru for a new-comer in site preparation. Marlows campground is around $700-800 per year, however, they close their doors sometime in October and don't re-open until April...we're open 365 days per year. We also have over 800 acres to maintain and pay taxes on...Marlowes MAY have 5 acres, so we have a big difference here, as well.
You need to default to the basic economics of " Supply & Demand " and if the prices were too high, I would guess that there would not be such a big demand for Kamp Kennerdell...we're almost full and, for the most part, we're very happy with our mix of people. Thanks!!

Well Golly Jeez Mr Riddle, I do believe you have it all figured out. So you needs to go gets yerself a constables badge and start enforcing the laws of the land here in Kennerdell. Go on, step right up to the plate and spend your idle time enforcing while I am out fishing in my grumpy old boat.

Posted by: Tom Riddle    Time/date: 9/16/2011 4:59:18 PM
Scott needs to have the rules enforced, the noise that is in the middle of the day is not the problem, its the noise that the people at the top of phase III make at 2:00 / 3:00am that can be heard by the cabins on Seneca hemlock road. Also, all of the people having the fight on this page need to act their age and stop acting like school children, sure, Scott's rates are outrageous (realized this after some research) but for most of us, places that are open to riders is dwindling, so for $1800-2000 a year, that isn't too much to ask for.
and for the "old man out on the river" comment, i think thats just what you need Mr. W.

Posted by: WEBELONG    Time/date: 9/13/2011 2:33:55 PM
So what you are saying Mr. Scott S. is that Rick is just a whiner and complainer and maybe should be out in a boat on the river with the rest of the Grumpy old Men and the water is cleaner than the outflow from his mouth.

Posted by: Scott S    Time/date: 9/12/2011 8:33:00 AM
Mr. WeBeLong. Mr. Rick has been in the campground since before Phase III was conpleted and he has been a perpetual complainer since "day 1"...complaining about mid-day / weekday noise I was making with heavy equipment when he was sleeping off the prior night's bottle when I was trying to get some things wrapped up on landscaped. Complaints about the water...personally I drink it all the time an I find it to be very good. Rick also has the lowest price in the campground and, because he was in first...he has the nicest spot. As far as high prices, you should see what they charge to wash / dry their customer's cloths at their laundry mat...twice as high as in Venango. Rick should consider Mines & Meadows before he complains about KK...if not for his wonderful wife, we'd have had him moving years ago.

hi mr webelong. I, we , dont think we slammed kamp kennerdell, yes, i am sorry for the pricey thing .yes, we love it here, but i stand my ground on the other things. campers are not informed about riding during hunting season, I am friends with alot of members of the kennerdell hunting club and seems there is mis- communication as when the dead line is to not ride on misty ridge. we wont talk about the water issue, other than that , ill go to the desk at motel six and ask them to tell the people in the room next to me to keep the noise down.

Posted by: WEBELONG    Time/date: 9/8/2011 8:21:17 AM
I am amazed at the thought of Kamp Kennerdell being a little pricey. If you prefer the nice peaceful wonderful wilderness and all the features that Kamp Kennerdell has to offer then I guess its not so pricey after all. Or, you can stick yourself in a moldy cupboard (motel room ) for about double the price and subject yourself to an array of bacterial agents. Who knows what went on before you entered the room and who knows what your drinking and bathing in. At least you are prewarned that the water is not potable and that you will not be sharing showers with all who venture into the campgrounds, ewww. Water is available to fill your holding tanks for your own personal showers.So dont be slamming Kamp Kennerdell for what it dont have , Be happy for what it does have to offer.

camping at camp kennerdell is a bit pricey, go to camp kennerdell web site and talk to the owner, we were told 30-40 per night. you have 800 acres of trails to ride but expect to bring your own DRINKABLE WATER. NO SHOWERS. some port-a pottys are located in the the camp. no atv riding is permitted during hunting season on the property from nov to jan , the property is used by the kennerdell hunting club and they strickly prevent anyone from riding there. other than that , its a rustick get-a- way in the woods with some nice riding.

God has given me license to preach so please allow me to say some things that may not make some folks too happy. Our world is in trouble to say the least and so much of it is because of a lack of respect for those around us. We own atv's and yet because some have a lack of respect for property owners, we are limited to where we can ride. And that area is getting bigger everyday just because some have abused the privilege. If you don't have a deed to a piece of ground, you have no right to it unless you've been given pernmission to ride.You don't have the right to tear up someone's land just for what you call fun. I have visited folks in hospitals who were reckless on an atv.It's not pretty sometimes so I would encourage you to rethink what you call fun and be careful. Maybe then, those of us who enjoy just riding will still have a place to ride someday. Thanks for thinking about this problem!

Our water is provided by the Kennerdell Water Supply Company. We have a local Water Board that meets several times a year to discuss water related topics. The water is treated at the Water Treatment facility located in Kennerdell behind the US Post Office. Rates are billed every quarter and average approximately $55.00 per customer and billed at a flat rate and not based on usage.

To the ignorant contributor of 1/23/11: The "old people" to whom you refer are land-owners. Their right to adequately manage their land as deemed necessary far outweighs your wanting to have fun on the weekend. Additionally, they are well within their rights to make alterations to any trails that exist on their property; this includes gating them off entirely if a propensity for dangerous conditions exists. So before you boldly proclaim them as "our trails", you should realize that they are not. Unless you have an ROW/easement agreement (which implies that you own an adjacent tract) or have permission from the landowner, you really have no business being on them at all. The way I see it, you are just a criminal trespasser. Your misguided entitlement is, in the least, laughable. At most, could end up costing you your freedom or your life. Think twice...

Some how and for some reason, my wife clicked on a web site a couple of years ago, well to make a long storey short we visied kennerdell and Kamp Kennerdell. We immediatly fell in love with the area. We have a permanent camp in the camp ground as a result we have found a beautiful community. I know as time goes on the area will be populated by people like us who are kind of weekend getawawers (if that is a word) and the more established people are not always accepting.. I think everyone needs to look at it both ways, the new commers need to respect the land and properties of others. example, hunters, fisher people, boaters, geo cachers and ATVer's. My family and I do all of the above. We walk our dogs on a leash, we quad where and when we are allowed, we buy our supplies from the local area to keep the economy moving forward. When we Geo Cach we pick up after the NON RESPOSIBLE people who litter and bring evil to the area. If you want to have an inexpensive hobby that is full of fun and adveture for the young and the experienced, check out geochaching.com, you will have a blast.. In closing please remember we bring good thing to kennerdell and the surrounding area, so next time you see a car near you, wave and smile, you never know when you or your family might need a hand, love is in the air and God owns the land, ohh and dont forget to carry a garbage bag for those who dont believe, Thanks Mark Naz......

Just wanted to share some thoughts with those of you who love Kennerdell. It's such a beautiful place to live and we hope we can keep it that way but there is a problem with some folks who seem to enjoy destroying things. Someone used a pumpkin to break out a back window in a car last week....not good! Someone used their atv to tear up the church yard a few nights ago....not good! And there are 2 or 3 atv's being ridden at a high rate of speed after dark multiple times....not good! If you know who might be doing these things, please talk to them because we are very concerned for them. We don't want to see them hurt themselves or someone else and statistics prove accidents happen. Our prayers are for them to make wiser choices for themselves....that would be a good thing!

We faithfully tried to hike up to Overlook ,but I think we turned back before we actually got there. Does anyone know of any trail guides or any info on the trail or the Kennerdell tunnel? Any advice would be so appreciated so that we may plan to try again next year. Thank you for your time.

If they are please give them my best. One of my best friends and traveling companion is Kate Eckert. She is Bill Eckerts widow. Do you remember him? He was the one who actually introduced us to your family. I saw Nick a few years back but I doubt I would know him to meet him on the street today. If you`re ever in the area stop in. Alot of things have changed over the years but Kennedell is still the little heaven on earth to live in. It`s not only beautiful but alot of good people are here despite our loss of so many. Thanks for remembering me. Mary

I love this site www.kennerdell.com. Lot of great information. I am Tech guy. I have been a Desktop Technician since 1997 but have tons of other interests. In my spare time... Oh, wait I don't have any of that (just kidding). Anyways, I have been aware of this website for quite some time and decided to join the community and contribute as well as learn a lot from others. I am excited to get started on the forum and am looking forward to a great journey together. Lots of potential friends and I look forward to meeting many online.

Hi Mary Miller.. You may not remember me but I knew you when I was about 12-15 years old.. My grandparents owned that log cabin "PUGH's"... Jeanne and Paul.. Parents: Carol and Bill and I had a sister and brother named Judy and Scott? Nichole Califato and I are still best of friends to this day thanks to wonderful Kennerdell!!.. We talk quite often about those special people that have made special memories for us and one of them is YOU! ( and yes! we remember mathew!).. Im not sure if you will remember us.. but I just wanted to leave a message to say hello.. I miss Kennerdell so much since my grandparents sold their place and looking forward to making a visit there next summer for sure!.. We really should try to get together.. at least for that annual awesome arts festival.. Hey.. I still have a newspaper clipping of myself at that festival when I was like 6!.. Fond Memories.. hope to hear from you!

Hey for a change it wasn`t me looking for dogs! Fixed that with a fence around my yard. Just wanted to correct that it was Matt who found the dogs and Bobby who helped carry them to the car and took out the dreaded porcupine needle. Those dogs looked like they had a rough week and as dog lovers we were certainly happy they were found, especially for the three cute little ones that were missing them. When you lose a dog around here it`s like looking for a needle in a haystack. Our family was glad to help. Mary

We are still looking for our pets that we lost this weekend. Someone spotted them crossing the bridge a day or two ago. The beagle (Jasper) and black & white border collie(Thumper) are missed by 3 small kids. They have collars on and are chipped. If you see them PLEASE keep them and contact me ASAP. They are very friendly and overweight! Jasper may not come to you as easily as Thumper but please try. My parents have a camp in Wilson Park so they may try to return there. You can contact them at 724-251-4934 or thesewnsew@hotmail.com. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!! PS> My parents are coming up later this afternoon to look for them.

STEELER RAFFLE TICKET WINNER FOR KENNERDELL MUSIC AND ARTS FESTIVAL Winning number was 728 based on Oct 3rd evening PA lottery number. Winner was Ed Muller--long-time camp owner on South Tunnel Road.

Thanks to everyone who sold the tickets and to all who bought them. We had 40 or so tickets that didn't sell.

Thanks so much to McClymonds Supply and Transit for the generous donation of the tickets each year.

This is really what funds the festival so please help next year by selling a book or buying a ticket from someone in town.

See you all on Saturday August 6, 2011!! www.kennerdellartsfestival.com

I have a camp down north tunnel road and I would like to bring up the fact that people think that it's okay to just going flying down the dirth road like it's their business. Well guess what, there are little kids and dogs and you are riding on a private road so it would be great if you would respect the fact that it's our road not yours and go slow =D
Kay thanks =)

Hello Kennerdell Community. The Oil Region Alliance is aware that there has been some vandalism at the lookout; we try to repair the damage as soon as possible. The lookout is a wonderful site, and so many stop by just to take in the beautiful scenery. We are very appreciative to Mr. & Mrs. Schneider for allowing the enhancements to be made, and have the site open for public enjoyment. If you happen to find any information on the vandals, please get in contact with me at kharris@oilregion.org. If we are able to find solid evidence to identify the culprits we will turn the information over to the State Police, and prosecute the individual(s). The overlook improvements were made for the members of the community and visitors to the region.

hi everyone , just want to thank everyone involved in the wonderful kennerdell art festival again this year. I grew up near Emlenton at a little farm area called Honeytown and have written a newsletter for about fifteen years.
It is such a delight to me to see this festival grow again each year as I attended one of the first ones down along the river . thank you Deanna , Nancy and Dianna
I don't mean to ignore the other wonderful sites around KENNERDELL , ITS A BEAUTIFUL PLACE
Let me add a little sketch her in words--from my honeytown news
I like it here in kennerdell---thats where I like to be--- the men are all gentlemen--- not red necks like in TENN. --now this is really country-- riding 4 wheelers and boating on the river -- leave your heartaches behind you -- and come to Kennerdell -- THE WOMEN HERE ARE PRETTY --nothing wild like in ARK-IN-SAW -- here they are really ladies -- drinking bloody marys and passing beer around--- but thats just a cover-- all the women in kennerdell-- are really ladies, angels in disguise -- so everyone come to kennerdell-- and hear the music- it rings out over the river -- and rings through the hills-- come to kennerdell-where music is really country-- where men are never red necks -- and women are really angels in disguise

Thanks to everyone who came out to support the Kennerdell Music and Arts Festival!! Thanks to all of the volunteers as well. It seemed to be a pretty successful event. We hope to have more crafters and artists next year. The music was terrific!! Winner of the canoe raffle was Paul W. from P and T Line Shack down here on South Tunnel Road. The winning number was 539. We still have Steeler raffle tickets for sale. They are $10 with two numbers on each ticket. The raffle is based on the PA daily evening lottery on 10-3-10. Send me an email through the web site: www.kennerdellartsfestival.com Winning artists will be posted there soon too. We still have t-shirts for sale as well. Don't forget--we will be doing the t-shirt contest for next year so start designing!! Thanks again and see you all on Saturday, August 6, 2011.

Hi! Gregg and I are starting our third year in Kennerdell, and I just wanted to say how much we love it here. The people are really friendly and helpful, and we couldn't ask for nicer neighbors. They work hard (at least most of them)and play hard. Kennerdell residents range from CEO millionaires to minimum wage blue collar workers--and everyone gets along (most of the time). There is nothing like a day on the river!

Food is old and hard again there's never no product in there anymore. Employees are very miserable and rude store is a mess again.

Long time lurker, thought I would say hello! I really dont post much but thanks for the good times I have here. Love this place..

When I was hurt in that car accident my life would be changed for good. Unfortunately that driver had no car insurance and I was going to be hurting for ever.

This was not time for me to start and guess what to do. I had to find a good accident lawyer to help me get what I needed. After all, my family was counting on me.

How awful was it? I has bedridden for 3 months, I had to have constant care and my clinic bills went through the roof!

Thankfully, I found a good referral site to help me.

I will post more later this afternoon to tell you more about what I have been going through.

in response to mr. kennerdell, I found in the venango county history that in 1867 john canan secured the charter to operate the ferry -- his successors being richard kennerdell and others. --1879 to 1881 the allegheny, kennerdell and clintonville railroad bridge afforded a means of crossing the river. THE u s census would be your next best bet to explorer john kennerdell -- I cannot go much further without better dates and name -- so you google kennerdell pa, usa history and find the census -- it will take some time

VOTE TODAY FOR THE 2010 KENNERDELL MUSIC AND ARTS FESTIVAL T-SHIRT DESIGN. Visit www.kennerdellartsfestival.com. You can check on the VOTE box to the left on the home page or go to the T-Shirt Contest page and vote from there. Only ONE vote per person. Voting ends May 10th. You can click on the image to make it bigger as they appear small on the page. We have some great designs and we want to thank everyone who took the time to submit their artwork. We also want to thank Rob Gerlach II for maintaining the website (free of charge) and posting the T-shirt voting area. It's pretty cool!! What great folks we have here in Kennerdell. We will be having a clean-up day at the park soon and we need all able bodies to help us remove the leaves, sticks, etc. It's a big job and we need lots of help. We have a fun day and provide the food and beverages for the workers. Bring your rakes, leaf blowers, gloves, and quads. Date to be announced soon. Anyone who would like to volunteer for the day of the festival to take ticket money, sell T-shirts and raffles, or just help with anything (there is always lots to do and not enough people), please let me know. We need help to keep this thing going every year. So far we have raised about $8,000 for the Kennerdell Community Center which may be used for a new fire truck or to fix the ceiling at the firehall. The money is very important to our little community. As always, we take cash donations for the festival and have room in our program for anyone wanting to advertise. The cost for the festival one-day insurance alone is over $500. We would really like to get a new little building this year for a shed/storage area. The current one is falling down. Contact me if anyone would like to sponsor the building. We will get a plague to recognize your contribution. THANKS TO EVERYONE!!

Windfall Tax on Retirement Income

Adding a tax to your retirement is another way telling the American people that you're so darn stupid that we're going to keep SQUEEZING YOU until we drain you of every last cent. Here's Pelosi's latest VERBATIM!

Nancy Pelosi wants a Windfall Tax on Retirement Income. In other words, TAX WHAT YOU'VE MADE BY INVESTING IN YOUR RETIREMENT. This woman is a nut-case!

MADAM Speaker Nancy Pelosi wants to put a Windfall Tax on all stock market profits (including IRA Retirement Funds, 401Ks and Mutual Funds), all to help the 12 Million Illegal Immigrants and other unemployed Minorities and SIMPLETONS!

This woman is a frightening HOE!



My Response: TELL THESE LAZY, UNEDJIMICATED, UNMOTIVATED IDIOTS TO REMOVE THEIR NECK TATTOOS, NOSE-RINGS, NIPPLE HOOPS & CLIT-STUDS SO THAT THEY, TOO, CAN GET A GOOD JOB AT SHEETZ OR WAL-MART...EVEN SHEETZ HAS A POLICY AGAINST " VISIBLE " STUPIDITY as far as their work-force and what they want to portray to their clients! Sure, I feel sorry for THE GOOFS and the decisions they've made which has resulted in their poor employment prospects, but, that sure don't mean I'm going to pick-up their tab. SORRY, BUB, GET A FREAKIN' JOB, AND, IF YOU CAN'T AFFORD KIDS???...KEEP YOUR ZIPPERS UP!

Please Post This! No more censure!!

You've got to consider the macro economics here! Although I do agree, whole-heartedly, that taxation needs to be a factor, one MUST consider the trickle-down effect of the prostitution business and the fact that it has a much more profound & stimulating effect that, let's say...drug dealing. Although everything that generates income SHOULD be taxed,...let's not lose sight of the fact that prostitution should be taxed at an incrementally higher rate. The reason is simple; the guy who sells / buys crack might smoke it all up in one night...then it's all gone...forever! A prostitute, however, can sell crack, wash it up at the end of the night and then re-sell it again tomorrow. Although Mr. Pimp might disagree, (as I'd expect...considereing he's used to paying nothing)...I believe it's time that he begin making some contribution to the tax base that keeps his streets adequately paved so that his girls don't break one of their high heels.

Wall Street tells you it's the beginning of a protracted bull market and stocks look great. Don't believe it. And whatever you do, don't bet your portfolio on it.

Look beneath the surface of the so-called recovery and you'll see enough trouble brewing to make the subprime market meltdown of 2008 "look like a walk in the park." That's not just my opinion. That's the conclusion from RealtyTrac, the nation's largest foreclosure tracking firm.

We just survived the worst years in history for foreclosures, but we may not be so lucky in 2010. One Federal Reserve member just reported that commercial real estate losses could reach 45% this year. That means $1.54 trillion in commercial loans could default, sinking the markets and plunging the economy back into recession.

There's more. Option adjustable rate mortgages are teetering on the
edge of the abyss, with $29 billion recast higher at the end of 2009, followed by another $67 billion in 2010. In fact, Barclays Capital says, "We expect 81% of the option ARMs originated in 2007 to default." Yet those headlines are buried while Wall Street blares out about corporate earnings that "are not as bad as expected" and "lower job loss numbers" that don't feel very low to me at roughly half a million per month.
And so unsuspecting investors are grabbing up cheap stocks, spurred on by Wall Street, and giddy with thoughts of a new bull market ahead.

You're about to get a rude -- and costly -- surprise. If you continue down the path Wall Street is leading you on you could lose the other half your net worth. YOU HAVE GOT TO PLAY THIS ONE REAL SMART, OR YOU'LL BE IN AN APPLIANCE BOX UNDER THE PETROLEUM ST. BRIDGE!

I have come across a very interesting article I would like to share with all of you wonderful people. It was written by a school student,and he calls it the New School Prayer.

Now I sit me down in school
Where Praying is against the rule
For this great nation under God
Finds mention of him , very odd

If scripture now the class recites
It violates the Bill of Rights
And anytime my head I bow
Becomes a federal matter now

Our hair can be purple, orange or green
That's no offense, its a freedom scene
The law is specific, the law is precise
Prayers spoken aloud are a serious crime

For praying in a public hall
Might offend someone with no faith at all
In silence alone we must meditate
God's name is prohibited by the state

We're allowed to cuss and dress like freaks
And pierce our noses, tongues and cheeks
They've outlawed guns, but first the Bible
To quote the Good Book makes me liable

We can elect a pregnant senior queen
And the unwed daddy, our senior king
It's inappropriate to teach right from wrong
We're taught that judgments dont belong

We can get our condoms and birth controls
Study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles
But the Ten Commandments are not allowed
No word of God must reach this crowd

It's scary here I must confess
When chaos reigns the schools a mess
So, Lord, this silent plea I make
Should I be shot, My soul please take

Shameful, Just Shameful

It's a slow day in the small Minnesota town of Marshall, and streets are deserted. Times are tough, everybody is in debt, and everybody is living on credit.
A rich tourist visiting the area drives through town, stops at the motel, and lays a $100 bill on the desk saying he wants to inspect the rooms upstairs to pick one for the night.
As soon as he walks upstairs, the motel owner grabs the bill and runs next door to pay his debt to the butcher. The butcher takes the $100 and runs down the street to retire his debt to the pig farmer. The pig farmer takes the $100 and heads off to pay his bill to his supplier, the Farmer's Co-op. The guy at the Farmer's Co-op takes the $100 and runs to pay his debt to the local prostitute, who has also been facing hard times and has had to offer her "services" on credit. The hooker rushes to the hotel and pays off her room bill with the hotel owner. The hotel proprietor then places the $100 back on the counter so the rich traveler will not suspect anything.
At that moment the traveler comes down the stairs, states that the rooms are not satisfactory, picks up the $100 bill and leaves town.
No one produced anything. No one earned anything...However, the whole town is now out of debt and looks to the future with a lot more optimism. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how the United States Government is conducting business today. SO SAD!

Sorry bout that, but I was told that the roads were taken care of buy the guy with the backhoe. Guess I need to get a shovel. WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

Posted by: Dr. Watson    Time/date: 12/29/2009 9:24:43 PM
Dear upper Wilson Park Property Owner , First of all Wilson Park does not have a backhoe, and as far as maintenance on the road, Bring a shovel. No one in Wilson Park is responsible for maintenance of the roads. If you feel like you would like to volunteer then have at it. If you are one of the fortunate people who have a camp between the entrance and my place , then your lucky because that is all I will be plowing this year. After 11 years of plowing the park the cost of fuel and maintenance have dwindled away my funds. So maybe someone else will step up and do the plowing. Have a Wonderful New Year !!!!

We are planning a New Years Eve bash at our place and would like to be sure we can get in with the forecast weather and whats already in the ground. Now that Wilson Park has a backhoe, we would like to see some improvements with overall maintenance and especelly the lower road. The lower road is a BIG mess and it needs of maintenance. Although we are not on the lower road ( thank God ), we still like to cruise the park occasionally without having to drive thru mud poodles that are a feet deep. Who should I talk to for some promise that the park will be in good shape over the holiday and also in the spring when we start using our camp regularly. We try to keep our vehical clean. Thank you.

The winner of the Kennerdell Music and Arts Festival Steeler raffle on Oct 4, 2009 based on the evening PA daily lottery number 336 was Cathy McKissick from New Castle, PA. She is a big fan and very excited to win.

I wanted to thank everyone for all of their help in selling the tickets this year. I especially wanted to thank Barb and John Varhola, Linda Lusher, Cindy Wingard, Pam, Hawkeye, and Rob Jr., and Scott Edkin. These folks sold several books and went out of their way to help me. There would be no festival without this raffle.

I also wanted to thank Mark McClymonds for donating the Steeler tickets each year. It's 100% profit minus the cost of printing the raffle tickets.

Don't forget, next year the festival will be held Saturday August 7th. We need folks to submit t-shirt designs by the end of January. Please visit www.kennerdellartsfestival.com for all the information!!

Community members join the Oil Region Alliance for the
Kennerdell Overlook Project Dedication

Friday, October 16, 2009; 1:00 PM
at the Kennerdell Overlook

Located on Kennerdell Road(approximately 4 miles from the intersection in Rockland)

Upgrades and safety improvements to the Overlook have once again made this site a favorite stopping place for folks visiting the area, and community members of the Oil Region National Heritage Area.

Come and enjoy the spectacular view, as you celebrate with the Oil Region Alliance, and its partners the completion of this project!

Please RSVP by Thursday, October 14, 2009, by contacting
Toni Kresinski at 814-677-3152, Ext. 110; or email: tkresinski@oilregion.org.

Refreshments courtesy of Venango Museum.

Parking for this event is located adjacent to the overlook at
the home of Scott Schneider, owner of both Misty Ridge and this overlook

>>>Received the following message from Kim at the Oil Regional Alliance. If you have children riding ATVs in the area would you please ask them to refrain from tearing up the parking area of the Look-Out. Kim is getting ready for a dedication & is hoping it looks good. THANKS!

Hi Scott:

I was out at the Overlook this past weekend to complete a few finishing touches, such as painting the kiosk, and installing the map on the Kennerdell Tract of the Clear Creek State Forest on the kiosk. The Overlook looked very nice on Saturday. However, when I returned on Sunday to do a few things, I noticed that it appeared 4-wheelers had been spinning circles in the parking area. The result was everything was covered in a heavy dust. I was not able to finish with some touch-up painting on the kiosk, nor put a protective coat of wax on the panels. I will try to get back out in the near future to complete this work. Please note that I do not believe the 4-wheelers are from ATV Traction.

In addition, the roof of the kiosk will be repaired in the near future.

Now that the final touches are almost complete we would like to schedule the celebration to dedicate the project. It is anticipated that the dedication will be scheduled for sometime in October. Is there any time in October that is not convenient for to attend the celebration? I will be contacting Handsome Lake Energy, ATV Traction, and other partners to check their schedule.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

As always thank you for all the hard work, you do in the up keeping of the overlook site.

The PIGS are back in their sty on the other side of the river dumping their garbage anywhere that they can throw it. Whoever owns those pieces of ground along Scrub Grass creek should either shut it down to these squatter-campers, clean up the unsightly trash regularly or patrol their land such that it does not continue to be the eyesore that I have to see every day on my way to work. These people are a WASTE and they need to be sent in some direction other than Kennerdell. I AM NOW DECLARING MY PERSONAL WAR AGAINST THE LOCAL PIG AND GOD HELP THEM IF I CATCH THEM DUMPING THEIR TRASH!!!

Looks like we have beer cans and fireworks to clean-up in the field as well. Thanks to the kind folks for the extra work!! We could really use some help as the festival is only a few weeks away and we haven't gotten much help with any of the other clean-up days. Please bring rakes, leaf blowers, quads, etc. Everyone who helps gets a 2009 festival t-shirt for FREE!! They are really cool too. I'd like to thank the Kennerdell Community Center folks who went up on their own a few week nights and did some cleaning/raking.

We have kayak and Steeler raffle tickets available for sale as well. This year's kayak is a hybrid canoe/kayak designed for hunting and fishing. Camo colored. Tickets are $3.00. The Steeler game is against the Browns on October 18th. Tickets are $10.00.

The web site for the festival is updated now with the music schedule and other info. Fireworks at the Kennerdell bridge after the event. www.kennerdellartsfestival.com

Hope to see lots of folks this Saturday!!! Thanks to everyone. We could also use some volunteers for the day of the event too. My contact info is on the web site.

Hello folks. Planning is underway for the 51st Annual Kennerdell Music and Arts Festival. This year it will be on Saturday, August 1, 2009 from 10am to 8pm. Please visit the website at www.kennerdellartsfestival.com for more info. We hope to have it updated soon. We are looking for artists, musicians, crafters, and, of course, volunteers and sponsors!! Contact info is on the website. We will have kayak and Steeler raffle tickets by the end of May. We are planning a meeting at the Kennerdell Community Center on Thursday, May 14th at 7:30pm if anyone is interested in attending. Also, we have scheduled a clean-up day at the park for Saturday, May 16th starting around 9am. We need lots of help so please spread the word. The upper part of the park needs cleared of dead branches and leaves. Bring your rakes and leaf blowers. We will reschedule if the weather is poor. T-shirts are still available from last year at a reduced cost. If interested, please send an email thru the website. We will have a new T-shirt design for this year. The fire dept. will hold their chicken BBQ at the festival. We are planning a great line-up of musicians including perhaps the original founder of the event--Eugene Reichenfeld. We hope to see a lot of you folks from Wilson Park this year on the clean-up days! Thanks to everyone for their support.

Dear goob. I think we will make through this. I dont like it any more than you guys. Why worry now! wait till it gets really bad, ok, so he raised the prices of smokes up 80 cents a pack causing un-employment to go up,(proven fact that drive threws and smoke shops business declines by more that 25% during price hikes) but its ok, i can deal with this. wait till the incentive packages fail due to non-direction of funds,(but i hope pa gets new bridges). the end of all creation will come to a close if he screws with alcohol!!then, I, will scream run, run, hide hide, and run to the hills. Im not worried now cause its way too soon. give it time!

Well said and very sorry that I agree with with you on the sad state of affairs here in the ole' IOUSA. When is the last time you tried to purchase a 30 Ot 6 bullet for your gun...or even a 9MM? I can't find them anywhere. Ruger stock price is the market's best performer...what does that tell you? Hide your guns, stock up on ammunition and bolt your doors...there is a revolution beginning to surface and it is about to get real ugly!

Maybe we should all clean up our own yards instead of flinging mud on our neighbors yard.Doing it on the community page was not exactly the way to go about it. I am sure your neighbor was a little embarassed and offended. I know what I would tell you if you did that to me.

Nothing wrong with suggesting if you are willing to help it become a reality.

"This page was really working for a while because people hear have a tendency to get real lazy, but, if they know people are watching there laxyness they might actually get up off there flab and clean upsomething..."
Please post your address so we may add constructive criticism to your homestead.

"I would like to suggest that the family kitty corner from the Kennerdell bridge finish the clean up of the cat-house that is laying in there front yard for the last year. How much time could this really take. Im tired of looking at it and please finish this huge task! It might take 5 minutes. I will clean it up my self because I could use the wood. If this is OK, please put a sigh in fromt of the wood that says FREE and I will do it for you if you are to busy. Your house is the first thing people see when they cross the bridge and it is not setting a acceptable standard in my opinion."
Again, please post your address so we all may assess your surroundings and see if it lives up to standards we can live with.

Dear OCO >>> Thank you. There has been a lot of positive feedback and this was made possible, in part, by some fine people at the Oil Regional Alliamce who are promoting southern Venango County as a tourist attraction. Although budgets are tight these days, I expect you will see much more in the years to come.

Thanks for your efforts and what you’ve coordinated with the ongoing renovations at the Kennerdell overlook. The informational placards are very informative and professionally done. The removal of the trees must have been a difficult task, but certainly made a world of difference by opening up the beautiful view to what I once remember it as when I was a child and introduced to Kennerdell by my parents in the early 1900’s. I am now well over 80 years old and am glad to, again, have the chance to enjoy and relive so many of the wonderful memories that I had as a child. The memory that stands out most clearly is the variety classic, antique automobiles that used to frequent the overlook (we thought they were modern at the time); I vividly remember the well-to-do older folks from Oil City coming to the lookout on Sundays. They were always dressed up so nicely. The lady-folk used to carry their brightly colored parasols and fancy, feathered hats. The men-folk wore their suits and all tried to look like Al Capone. I was just a child then and my sister and I were confined to the rumble seat of my grandfather’s car. The road was a simple one-lane dirt road at that time and I remember it was a very dusty ride. These are all memories that have recently come back to me now that I’m frequenting the lookout again; I thank you for that. We stopped coming to the lookout when Kennerdell allowed it to become a dumping ground; there were rats and many undesirables who scared us away; it was not a good place to be. Hopefully these dark days are behind us now that an outsider has taken control and shown some pride of ownership; this should have be done years ago. Keep up the good work!

My dear Sherlock, First of all,Why are you dragging the Brantners into this,They have nothing to do with this.Now lets get down to business. It started with a simple discussion about orbs, and then you decided to add your brilliant IQ ( pfft ) into it and now your talking as if you are smoking crack or something. I think you are a coward, for you stated that you were coming by over the weekend to observe these orbs for yourself and you never showed, let the truth be known. I pretty much figured you were probably stuck in your hip waders in your own yard of BS. Your really showing us all your HIGH IQ. Well your not going to drag us into your pit of sludge or whatever you want to call it, so take care and be careful of what you eat, for it just may be something you produced.

My dear Watson, or baby Watson,
Trust me, my IQ is higher than you can count with the help of all your digits. What exactly is "my duo"? I have never met a Watson who knew what he/she was talking about. Please introduce me if you know of one.
No BS on my shoes as I deftly dance around your yard. I've been fixxin' to tell you, it gets mighty deep in your yard, regardless of the time of year.

You needn't use any optics to see me, and if you had said optics, you certainly wouldn't see any BS from my mouth. Nothing but the truth! I realize the truth hurts, so I will leave the Brantners out of this discussion.

Good luck with the orb study. Barrack Hussein O-bomber will probably find a cabinet position for you to use up the money he confiscated from me.

Dear Sherlock,How High is your IQ exactly? My Father is the one in your duo that has a letter D and a letter R In Front of his name so I think it's Safe to say he knows what he is talking about. If you come here often then like the rest of us you have plenty of that BS that you speak of on the bottom of your shoes, It tends to get mighty deep around here during the winter months. but it seems to me upon looking at you with my magnifying glass you also have some of those pesky BS particles Coming out of your Mouth so here's a wet nap to wipe that off... Now be quiet and let my father get back to his investigation of His orbs

My Dear Sherlock,
It appears you have given up on investigating. I would like to propose an invite for you to capture your own orbs. You should bring your digital camera to the homestead some evening and snap a few orbs of your own. I have for some reason over a hundred orbs who seem to like to hang out here. Male or Female ? I dont know, I have never seen one naked. They are not in my head , They are on my camera and a few of my frinds have them on their cameras also. So feel free to stop in and check them out for yourself.

You are right Goober.

I couldn't believe there were no posts about the Arts Festival...I waited over a week and couldn't believe that with all these past commentators....that no one had nothing to post.What has come over us?
It looks like a lot of people went and had a good time.....I did and look forward to next year.Did anyone else have a good time except for the select few that took the time to say thanks?

Well,I'd like to say thank you to the people who put the Kennerdell Music and Arts festival 2008 together.I must say,it was a fine event.With the VFD running out of food,it shows more attended than were expected.The arts and crafts were very nice and the music even better.Ol' Goober was a dancin' and a prancin' to the fine music all day long.The crowd was a rockin' and a rollin' quite nice too.My cousin Phineas Finchley and his wife Phoebe came in from the east end of the state for the event and hope to see it next year.Again,thank all you hard working people for a five star event.

The Kennerdell Community Center will be preparing food items for the 50th Annual Kennerdell Music and Arts Festival at the firehall on the evening of Thursday, July 30th. It always seems to be the same people who work really hard to make the community safer and nicer to live. Lets give them a hand!! Don't forget, the chicken BBQ helps make money to support the fire and rescue service that you may need someday. If you have an hour or so to spare on Thursday evening, please stop on down to the firehall and help scrub potatoes, wrap silverware, etc. The more people who help, the quicker it gets done. There are 350 chickens that will be cooked on Saturday. That's 350 baked potatoes to scrub and 350 silverware sets that need wrapped. Also, we need help with the pies for the dinners. We will need 350 pieces of pie too!! If you would like to donate a pie, contact one of the Community Center members or get it to the park early Saturday morning. In addition, if you want to volunteer for the day of the festival, we could use your help even if for an hour or so. We need relief people, help making sure the garbage cans are managed, assistance with the kids activities, and lots of other tasks. If you have always wanted to participate in your community but have never done so, now is the time!! We could still use some Chinese auction prizes so if you have anything to offer through a business or a personal donation, please go to the website for the contact info. www.kennerdellartsfestival.com We are also accepting non-perishable food items and monetary donations for the food bank in Seneca. Please bring old but clean towels and blankets, dog/puppy or cat/kitten food for the Venango County Humane Society too. One last thing, if it rains on Saturday, the rain date is the next day, Sunday Aug 3rd. We will be up at the park off and on throughout the day on Friday and early Saturday so if you want to help, just show up. Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello everyone. Just a quick reminder that the 50th Annual Kennerdell Music and Arts Festival will take place this coming Saturday, Aug 2nd from 10am to 8pm in Wilson Park. We've been working really hard and we have a great day planned full of music, art, crafters, and kid's activities. The website is up and running now with lots of information including the full music schedule. www.kennerdellartsfestival.com Fireworks are scheduled to be set off on the river by Marlowe's campground around 9:30pm. The Community Center folks are providing all of the food--chicken BBQ (only 350 being made so get there early), hotdogs, sloppy joes, nachos, etc. Artists and crafters can still register up until the morning of the event. We are raffling a kayak which will be on display at the festival. We have a great Steeler raffle too but those tickets are going quick so hurry!! We will also have a 50/50 and a chinese auction with some nice prizes. Cost of admission is only $3.00 for adults and kids over 16. No parking fee. Everyone who pays the $3.00 to enter, gets a free chance at a pair of Monday night Steeler tickets for the Ravens game on Sept 29th. A parking pass is included. The winning ticket will be drawn the day of the festival. We hope you will come out and support our efforts over the past few months. Thanks again to everyone who helped make it possible.

I would like to invite everyone to the Kennerdell Church of God on Sunday July 20 at 7:00 pm for a FREE concert in the church yard.
Performing will be Tammi Dahl and Mark DeWalt. This is a show that you won't want to miss, as these are two of the most talented performers I have ever seen. Also that evening we will be serving free hot dogs and cookies. Hope to see you there.

There are also several services out of Franklin that handle the Franklin - Kennerdell route...they will drop you off and then pick you up at a predetermined time just down stream of the bridge in Kennerdell. There are also several other companies that handle the "upper Allegheny" routes and will arrange for drop-offs in either Tionesta or President and then pick you back up at the Arlington Hotel in Oil City. I've done many of the routes and they are all very nice, but, if you ask me for my opinion, I would say that the Kennerdell to Emlenton route is the most boring. Google it and you should come up with some phone numbers to contact.

Where is the closest put in for a canoe near Kennerdell and can anyone tell me how many river miles is would be to Emlenton? cI canoed this part of the river during the Allegheny sojourn a few years back and enjoyed it so much. I would like to do this part of the river again. Thanks for the help.

The festival is Saturday, Aug 2, 2008 from 10am to 8pm. Rain date is Sunday, Aug 3, 2008. There is a website that I am working on and hope to have things complete soon. www.kennerdellartsfestival.com

I asked this once last year, but am still awaiting a response: Does anyone in Brandon permit folks to use their waterfront property or is there any common area down there? Our family's waterfront access was blocked by Rails to Trails years back and we can't get in the river any longer. We'd probably use the camp more if we could hang out by the river. Anyone?

I just wanted to thank all of the wonderful folks who came to help in Wilson Park on June 13th. Even though it was raining, they showed up in pretty good numbers with ATVs/carts, rakes, blowers, tractors, etc. We got a lot accomplished and had a fun day. People really worked hard.

There is still lots to do and the next clean-up day will be July 12th. Please help if you can. Bring rakes, blowers, buckets, etc. The buildings need cleaned and we have some painting to do as well. Most of the work involves removing sticks and leaves. The park has not been maintained in several years.

Most of the people who helped yesterday were members of the ATV Traction group. They are too numerous to mention all of them but I'd like to thank Scott Vogel for getting them all together. Also, we had a few Kennerdell folks--Pastor Bobbie's husband Ray, Charlene Myers and Chase, Ann Parys, Kathy Francis, Chuck Vernam, and Mark McClymonds. We also had Marilyn Black from the Oil Region Alliance. I hope I didn't leave anyone out.

I want to thank my wonderful Mom, Mary Miller, for making most of the food. John Janacone with the ATV traction and a South Tunnel fellow, gave a $50 donation. Again, thanks so much to everyone who is helping me to bring back the Kennerdell Music and Arts Festival on August 2nd.

George Roney that would be a great idea I think some trees growing there would help with the erosion, not to mention it would look better.

Posted by: Deanna Miller    Time/date: 6/10/2008 6:45:07 AM
Hello folks. We are having a clean-up day at Wilson Park this Saturday, June 14th. Starts at 8am. Please spread the word and if anyone can volunteer for the day, we could use your help. This was a last minute plan with the ATV Traction group as the original date of July 12 was in conflict with an important board meeting. We will still do the July 12 day if it doesn't all get completed this Saturday. Please bring rakes, etc. I am trying to arrange for coffee from the Community Center. I will get some bagels/cream cheese as well. There will be some sort of sandwich material. If anyone wants to bring cookies, covered dishes, etc., that would be appreciated. There will be water and pop too. Most of the work involves raking leaves, making sure the paths are clear, and cleaning and repairing the buildings.

Plans are moving along well for the Festival and we are hoping lots of folks come out on August 2nd to enjoy the music and art/crafts. If anyone is interested in a table or entering art/playing music, please give me a call. My cell is 412-780-7637. We are selling raffle tickets for a kayak too. I will have those with me at the clean-up day. They are $2.00 each. Of course, we are also accepting donations. There is an account now and checks can be made out to "Kennerdell Arts Festival". We have had some generous donations from a few folks already. Also, we could use donations for a chinese auction so if you have a business and can do a gift certificate or donate items, that would be terrific. Items can be dropped off here at the house or contact one of the Community Center folks.

Again, please spread the word about this Saturday as it is last minute and there is not much time to organize a big group. Thanks in advance for all of your help!!!

Being from the South Tunnel side and after reading all the crap posted over the winter months about the mess in Kennerdell, I finally had a chance to take a drive down North Tunnel Road this weekend. Kennerdell-North has never looked so good! I saw nice improvements on the church grounds, great looking lots near the tunnel’s north end, junk piles removed, many home improvements, landscaping and building everywhere I looked. There continues to be many major improvements taking place every year and everywhere in Kennerdell and it looks like the community is off to another great start for the building season of 2008. Keep up the good work and forget about the jealous bastards that want your river frontage at 1950’s prices.

To Bill: The observations that I made concerning your first post were observations I considered valid at the time. Perhaps with a tad more digesting of said post my conclusion may not have been so decisive.

I can see now from your second post that I was off base concerning your expressed views. I like you detest censorship but as you have alluded to it was a necessary evil in order to take control of the contemptible content that was consuming this forum.

Point taken about “thorn in my side and hectic day” they were my interjections garner from a perceived notion.

Perhaps if I ever make the 1,100 mile trek from Florida to Kennerdell we can go fishing.

Posted by: Bill    Time/date: 5/12/2008 7:08:14 PM
Dear Archy, I never mentioned the rights of the owner of this forum, of course he can do what he wishes, it's his site! I also understand the motives of censoring by the owner. There are some lowlifes lurking here. Further, I never said or alluded to censorship being a thorn in my side. I was pointing out that some folks are thankful for censorship. I can obviously live with censorship on a web page. I just don't understand how a thinking American can praise it. I, for one, will always prefer freedom. BTW Arch, my day wasn't/isn't hectic.

Posted by: Scott S    Time/date: 5/12/2008 8:52:12 AM
Morning Archy >>> Although definitely not pro-censorship and not totally sure it was the right decision, there were many fine folks of Kennerdell who believed that certain topics and issues were getting out-of-hand, posted anonymously and in a manner that attempted to embarrass the community and to “drive wedges” between neighbors and neighborhoods, etc. This blog will remain “lightly” censured, and now that the issue has been brought to light, hopefully there will be no need to censure anything. We’d like to see postings that are fair, objective, constructive and factual, because these types of anonymous Internet blogs always opens the door for lies, half-truths and venomous gossip, most of which was written to piss-off Kennerdell residents and the many hard-working people who’ve dedicated countless hours, sweat, thought & money to make it a desirable place to live. Kennerdell is a unique place to live and visit; hopefully you’ll agree that it’s unproductive to cast Kennerdell in a light that’s anything less that what it truly is.

Posted by: Archy McNally    Time/date: 5/11/2008 1:27:40 PM
To Bill: I am also an observer. On this form you have expounded about your concerns with censored material with authority and passion and for this you should be commended. However the host of this form has the right to censor any material he deems distasteful. With that in mind why would you take the time out of your hectic day to read this form if censorship is such a thorn in your side?

Posted by: s mccoy    Time/date: 5/6/2008 10:28:12 PM
We were wondering if there are any squirrel dog or coondog hunters in kennerdell?

Posted by: Bill    Time/date: 5/6/2008 7:45:40 PM
Dear Just an Observer,
I too am an observer. I don't wish to slit your throat or build you up. I think someone needs to wake you up! You thank the page hosts for censorship, but obviously read it anyway. I don't like censorship or cowards anonamously taking shots at others via this web page. I am however an adult living in a free country and don't want or need someone censoring the information I digest. Hopefully someone(Al Gore?) can provide you, as you wish, with an internet that does your thinking/censoring for you. For the rest of us, please don't do our thinking for us. Have a nice day and be sure to surf by the Libertarian Party's website.

To those who are vandalizing Wilson Park:
It was just brought to my attention that someone has be vandalinzing and destroying a valuable asset to this community. Someone has been stealing picnic tables, tore the door off of a shed, caused damaged to the stage and much more. This is being done at the Community owned park in Wilson Park. If anyone knows who is doing this or has any more info please contact me or the State Police. Also I would like to ask everyone to keep an eye on the park. This year (with the great efforts of some wonderful local folks the Kennerdell Arts and Music Festival is coming back!!! Lets hope and pray that a few don't destroy the park in the meantime.

I’ve been around the world and throughout the entire United States on many occasions. I've never seen a place that is more beautiful than Kennerdell and this same endorsement has been made by many of my well-traveled friends who visit. Yes, there are places that are AS beautiful, but none MORE beautiful than Kennerdell. The community is dealing with “sour grapes”; posted by a select few who are hell-bent to trash the community over a chronic jealousy that they hadn’t the foresight to invest when the times were opportune. As far as property values are concerned, you can’t blame those who have made large investments of time, money and sweat for reaping the gains that come when property values increase as a direct result of their efforts…remember one thing…their contributions toward the appreciation of their land values have also appreciate YOUR land…assuming you were smart enough to have invested in the community when prices were low! Take a look around the states…property values in Kennerdell are still well-below all national averages, so, these trashers still have time to make a move if they’re able to get that big thing they’re all sitting on up off of the couch.
I predict that Kennerdell property values are going to go thru-the-roof within the next 10 years; the Baby Boomers are coming soon, they’ll bring their money and they’re not going to be interested or concerned with where they can work; they’ll not be concerned with what they have to pay for a piece of river-frontage; Kennerdell will become a “ retirement / bedroom community “ and local jobs will not be important…the jobs are NOT COMING BACK and that’s OK with me. Just take a look at the improvements that have been made in recent years and you’ll get a “ flavor for the good things to come “…it’s just beginning! If you want to participate, then fine!...if not, then that’s fine, too…just don’t hold it against those who have a plan and stick by it. Get you butts up off the couch!!

Please let me say that I am not endorsing the over all censorship of this page, and of the people who contribute to it. It is that lately there has been a lot of senseless posts, by folks who will not list their name. The way I see it if I am going to say something I will be proud enough to put my name to it and not hide behind a false name or alas. Again let me say that we have a wonderful community to be proud of even with our faults.

Posted by: Morris Lester    Time/date: 4/13/2008 8:40:16 AM
While it may be refreshing for some who seem overly concerned with property values and possible future sales of said property in the area,hiding the communities 'dark side' through censorship is falsely portraying that communities appearance.Many subjects were broached on this forum that indeed should be fixed as a community.Hiding them in the closet is no way to grow healthy as a family or community.
Thank you for the opportunity to speak out.

Thank you for taking this diffucult step concerning some of the posts. It is sad that steps like this sometimes need to be made. This effort will portray our community in a positive aspect and not allow the actions of a few to set the example. God has blessed us with a wonderful community and we should be thankful.

Hi Everyone- Our family just received a flag in memory of Bob that was flown in Iraq on Feb 3 2008. Needless to say we were very proud to get it. The young man who sent it to us is a local Kennerdell "boy" who graduated (Cranberry High School) with my son Bob. This is his third tour in Iraq plus one in the Gulf War. I got to thinking that it would be nice if anyone wanted to send him a card, goodie box, etc to thank him for his service to this country. His address is SFC William Borton HHB2-320th FAR 1BCT
APO AE 09391

Pass this on to anyone who might want it. Support our TROOPS!!

I used to love spending time in Kennerdell -- I considered it good therapy. You know fresh air, nice peaceful ride through the trails, sitting on the river bank, visiting with the locals -- it was great. What has happened to this community !!? Now all I hear about is the bickering drunks -- I am sick of the slurring, drooling, loud, non-sense drunks. I think just about everybody in Kennerdell has a bar -- that is what life is focused on -- the community needs help. Maybe you guys could get a group rate for AA or rehab therapy.

Your best best would be to contact ATVtraction at www.atvtraction.org for all trail, location & membership details. I believe Scott S. also has maps available that cover Misty Ridge, however, Misty Ridge is only a small portion of the acreage our group controls in the Kennerdell area. There is a map of the Misty Ridge trails on this website ( see Perimeter Survey page ). Hope this helps!

Pig Patroller: You better give it a bit more thought because if you block off access to their sty on the other side of the river, you’re going to have them all wallow across the river to the Kennerdell side and then you’ll have their broken beer bottles, dirty syringes and poop-piles to step in when you’re down enjoying the riverside with your family. Keep the pigs in their existing pens across the river…PLEASE!!!

Posted by: Pig Patroller    Time/date: 3/28/2008 8:00:35 AM
Whoever owns the property along Scrubgrass Creek on the other side of the river should think about blocking off the access points with something that will keep vehicular traffic out; I expect the pigs will be moving back into their sty in the very near-term and these pigpens need to be closed down if you want to keep the area clean and drug-free.

Okay. Us ATV riders are going now where so if anyone is going to leave it's going to be you snotty ass people. I can tell you have never ridden a 4 wheeler. Try it sometime. But any ways the ATV traction group does ALOT for Kennerdell. They DON'T make up ALL the garbage. Infact they clean around to make it pleasure able and more fun. So don't say that we all should leave because...hey! REALITY WERE NOT GOING NO WHERE!

Posted by: leradoo    Time/date: 3/20/2008 7:52:13 PM
Dear wow, Yes. I am apologizing to Goober for hurting his feelings. because I am a better person than he is .Although I have my own thoughts about what kind of person he is and how he likes to stir up trouble.I do not want to hurt anyone.And trust me I do have some thoughts that he is a few fries short of a happy meal.

Posted by: Hunting For Goober    Time/date: 3/20/2008 10:25:27 AM
Thanks Rick...at least I now know the hat he MAY be wearing. Has anyone seen someone wearing a "Goober Hat" in Wilson Park?...it’s the one with all the jagged points!

Also to "WOW"...I don't think that you have Goober properly pegged! Although the “Johnny-B-Bad” living in the A-frame definitely falls into what I’d term “the Goober Category"...I don't think he's smart enough to operate a computer; anyone that would purposely, intentionally and strategically be COINCIDENTALLY walking in front of and pulling out in front of moving ATVs being driven by the local drunkards just to stir-up problems in WP is not the brightest bulb on the tree! Further, this guy was also dumb enough to discard a month’s worth of his garbage in plastic bags, along the road, at the main entry to WP and the garbage had his name all over the discarded mail that was inside of the bags and then strewn all over the neighborhood by wild animals for the food scraps!...definitely an idiot!! He did get his wife to clean it all up after he was called unto the carpet by the WP community in a very pointed and meaningful manner.

Let me tell you...the "REAL GOOBER" is a very cunning animal that can change his colors, at will,…just like a lizard; he is a "master of disguise" and will be very hard to corner. I suspect he’s definitely smart enough to have changed his hat since “getting the boot” out on I-80 and I also believe there’s a real potential that he may be that bad hombre that’s expected back in town with the rainbow snow-cone hair-do. Just some food for thought, but,…I believe there may be some connection, so, don’t discount anything at this point in time.

he is nothing but dis-respectful, to everyone he lays
eyes on.. and your going to appologize? are you serious?

and i wanna know if im reading this right, is everyone
saying goober is the guy in Wilson Park that lives on
the corner in the blue house/cabin or whatever by
the trails that take you to the look out and misty ridge?
he walks his dog back there, and if so i can see why.
whoever is it there is a creeper. he just stands back
there with his dog. and he almost ran into the front
of my quad trying to back up.

dear (hunting for goober). I can explain the whole thing about goober . It started in a little town in mayberry SC. goober owned a small gas station out of town. he really didnt make much money . he was treated like a real idiot back then. well, this ticked him off big time ! he tried to get some help from his brother but he was busy pissing off sgt carter. barney got promoted to detective in L.A. andy had enough of goober so he told barney to just grab goober, through his ass in the car, and drop him off somewhere were he can find his way back home. barney,( heading to LA) was traveling on rt 80, stopped to make sure that he had not lost the 1 bullet that andy gave him. pulled onto rt 8, thew goobers ass out! goober, somehow found his way into kennerdell , never accomplished much, but still living here. no one has seen him or talked to him but we feel his presence.

If Goober says hes "100%" real and can ASSURE us he is, i think everyone, along with myself would LOVE to meet him. What's everyone
think? "Old Goober ain't a stirrin' no pot" and you've been stirring the pot, ever since YOU CREATED IT. "Leradoo,I think yall should mind yer own bizzness" something you should take into consideration too! "Yall call me a retard which isn't quite neighborly of you." and you've been saying stuff about everyone person you laid eyes on in Kennerdell, and just because of that i bet you any money some un-neighborly parties WILL take place, just because of your un-neighborly way of handling situations, remarks, and attitude.

so keep posting negative comments, again and again..
getting people pissed isnt the way of handling things, because it
just makes them more mad, which wants to make them continue on
every more -- you'll learn, one of these days
nothing is going to change

kthx (:

Rozanne>>>Thanks for the heads up; we’d had a huge problem with Viagra, Porn and other forms of Auto-Spam coming into this site from both foreign countries and domestically until we installed the appropriate filters. If you fine tune your “ settings “ and establish proper firewall parameters…it will go away. We’ve had no further issues since installing them. The reason that we do not have any “ Real “ direct links to us within the website is another means of Spam control. If you take a look at our Home Page, you’ll note that our e-ddress is expressed as " scottsat(use @)kennerdelldot(use.)com "…this is the best way to express an e-ddress on a web-page if you want to fool the web-crawlers & spiders that cruise The Web to collect e-mail address from the Internet for the purposes of building Spam distribution lists.

FYI to the Kennerdell Website, people are robbing your website name to send spam mails about Viagra. and example is someone used my name to send to me rozanne@kennerdell.com. I've never been to this website before.

As there is no real direct link to the webmasters this is the best way to advise you.

Heart in KD: What a breath of fresh air...good points and insite; something neutral > positive for a change! We truly can conquer all problems if we work together as a community and KD is a great place and I believe it will remain so.

Posted by: Heart in KD    Time/date: 3/7/2008 3:18:50 PM
I’ve been coming to KD all my life and most of the people have been friendly and I think of as family. Of course there is always some grumpy person around and when they pass or move on another one takes his place. Sometime I think the seller makes sure the person is nasty, “Only cantankerous people aloud”. KD’s always been a hodgepodge of higher quality homes and low-cost and low-maintenances, drunkards singing loud into the night and God fearing folk praying in the morning, fisherman, hunters, motorcyclist and naturalist. We all have our own ideas about what KD is, but one thing is certain it’s a place that has captured our hearts. It’s a place we like to go and do our own thing. It’s sometimes hard to see changes taking place like the state park, bike trail and the ATV group. I have a hang up with all these groups for the same reason. It limited my freedom to roam the mountainside. But what choice do we have in life but to except the changes that occur and try to find the positive. Across the river is safe from development as with the other land that has been purchased by rails to trails and ATV. A lot of you people come from places that have zoning and orderdences. Is that what KD is coming to? If you wait long enough people that own the run down places will move on and some one will come in a build a bigger and better place. The drunks will get old and mellow out. Get to know your neighbors and who owns what. If you see a squatter or litterbug, confront them and tell them your going to inform the landowners and or authorities. That’s how it used to be. As a kid we couldn’t make it back home before a neighbor told on us when we did something wrong via telephone or driving down to see our parents. Get your neighbors back and get busy helping each other instead of gripping. Have you thought of using this sight for a place to brainstorm for solutions for your problems? Good luck! Yea this is all over the map.

If anybody qualifies as "muppears" it would be most of the ATV Traction group.I have no problem with the ATV people as long as they are civil and respectful of late night things.But now it looks like ATV Traction thinks its some type of Quasi local government entity.It is appreciated that you help in our community and such but it does not give you any type special privileges or the right to warn another that he 'better watch out'.You are no more welcome than your last actions indicate.I hope this is not a reflection on the other ATV Traction members attitudes.have a nice day.

If the unruly noise of an atv bothers you move to the city. atv traction encourages respectfull riding and does alot for your community including cleaning up all the mess. weather or not i am welcome by you doesen't much matter to me, I will be there as often as i can and enjoying myself to boot, Jim

My family and friends now consider kennerdell our second home on the weekends. We stay at the man from Chicago's kamp and had nothing but the best time with him and and his family. The guy has went to all measures to make our stay here enjoyable. We were total stangers when we came here but he and his wife opened there arms like other local people and made us feel welcome. Unlike the crappy people i have to deal with in youngstown,I'll trade your little bitches and cryers any day !!

I will take the high road, here... unlike the commentary from some person who claimed that he or she was an 'ATV Traction Board Member' about a month ago.

Yes it is true that I no longer am a ATV Traction Member, but for what it is worth... even though I have hard feelings for some folks in this organization and will for a very long time, as they are on my 'Bucket List' for the most part 99% of the members of ATV Traction are good law abiding folks.

So for you who want to be a stereo typical individual 'ATV Hater' it is not the members of ATV Traction that you should be attacking, it is almost always the locals who cause issues and if not them, then the Muppears.

Best Regards...

I understand that the ATVs have again been welcomed onto Misty Ridge & Myers’ property through Atvtraction, so, the town is going to be invaded this next Saturday to begin another season of crapola and disruption, so, keep your eyes peeled for trespassers and get prepared for another season of loud, obnoxious ruckus. If you catch these a—holes on property they are not allowed on, plan on giving them the royal sendoff. We don’t want them here and they should all go back to where they came from, including that jerk from Chicago who lives up on the hill.

Young Gun: As you’ll plainly see by reading the page, there’s no one here who has been awoken as a result of your arrival announcement, come high-noon, at the break of spring, although I, for one, can’t wait! This page has been HUMMING all winter long over issues much more interesting than a wannabe cowboy that’s running through the woods with blue hair. However, given your recent notice to the community, I think it’s really just a matter of curiosity as to the hair color you’ll show up with when you burst into the saloon at the OK Corral with your pea shooter. I think the community is looking for some hint as to your mood, because your mood will have major impact as to how you’re dealt with, so, you might want to consider the color of your bouffant very carefully. For your information Lady Clairol has a hair color that’s formulated for every possible occasion and mood; just ask my wife. Choose your color wisely, sonny boy…choose it wisely!

I see there’s been lots a talk with respect to the re-arrival of that “YOUNG GUN” and his entourage of bad hombres into the K-dell territories this comin spring? I think all should know that the simple thought of it is making us Shaler boys quiver in our boots and causing our trigger fingers to be a twitchin! Just so we all know who’s who and where to train our sights based upon his foreboding and imminent arrival, does anyone know the hair color that he’ll be sportin as he pulls up into the old corral driving that old iron horse? The last time we seen em, his hair was blue, but, the word’s out on the trail that he may be moving in under cover of disguise this time; possibly tricking us boys by slithering into town with a pink, purple, orange or green bouffant? It’s also been rumored that he’s possibly preparing for an even more stealthy ensemble of the latest in hair fashion; one similar to a fluorescent rainbow snow-cone, which would certainly provide an unfair advantage and a maximum sneak attack potential? Is there any truth to this rumor? I recon the town’s folk deserve some adequate warning such that preparations may be made. In the meantime, MAMA, don’t let your baby grow up to be a rainbow haired cowboy, because we’ll tie him up to a tree down there on the river, and, before dawn, the entire peninsula will be awake by the sounds of a pig squealing in the night once them north tunnel boys catch wind!

One final comment. That jerk living up on the hill under the blue roof is also the biggest drunk in the town. This website stinks and I will never be back. Take your stupid website and go back to Chicago.

We’ve been reading the community page with great interest and ATVtraction would be happy to assist in a major cleanup effort and beautification of downtown Kennerdell and North Tunnel Road. We’ve played a roll in managing your litter along the highway and, now that we have it under control, we would be happy to lend a hand at cleaning up some of the mess along North Tunnel. Although we’d like to see some participation and approval by the townsfolk, we’d be happy to bring our team in and do the job for you. We believe you have much unrealized potential in your beautiful community, but we believe something radical needs to be done to bring the standards up to some acceptable level of aesthetic appeal. A few things we’d suggest in order to reduce the mess:
- Centralize boat and dock storage to a designated area and keep the roadway and river view clear
- Remove rusted steel junkpiles and miscellaneous debris that’s laying around
- Clean-up the smoldering toxic burning pile in front of Mr. & Mrs. ? log cabin; big eyesore…bigger nose sore when burning. We’re not sure who owns it.
- Remove all construction cones and unused construction materials from edge of roadside
- Work with homeowners to clean up junk on porches and assist in preparing for spring garage sale; residue could be removed and discarded
- Remove and recycle junk RVs and vehicles; we have a dump truck and could recycle much of this material for profit
- Camouflage, relocate or recycle the gas-pipe mess
- Remove / relocate all the miscellaneous 55 gallon drums
We have a number of other ideas that we’d be happy to discuss if you would like to take us up on our offer of getting involved. You will be happy with the improvements. Please get in touch with us as we are looking for a meaningful springtime project that will demonstrate our value and environmental focus.

Posted by: Who Or What Is Barak Obama??    Time/date: 2/7/2008 2:10:20 PM
Barack Hussein Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, to Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., a black MUSLIM from Nyangoma, Kenya and Ann Dunham, a white ATHEIST from Kansas. Obama's parents met at the University of Hawaii. When Obama was two years old, his parents divorced. His father returned to Kenya. His mother then married Lolo Soetoro, a RADICAL Muslim from Indonesia.? When Obama was 6 years old, the family relocate to Indonesia. Obama
attended a MUSLIM school in Jakarta. He also spent two years in a
Catholic school.
Obama takes great care to conceal the fact that he is a Muslim. He is
quick to point out that, "He was once a Muslim, but that he also
attended Catholic school."
Obama's introduction to Islam came via his father, and that this
influence was temporary at best. In reality, the senior Obama returned
to Kenya soon after the divorce, and never again had any direct
influence over his son's education.
Lolo Soetoro, the second husband of Obama's mother, Ann Dunham,
introduced his stepson to Islam. Obama was enrolled in a Wahabi school
in Jakarta.
Wahabism is the RADICAL teaching that is followed by the Muslim
terrorists who are now waging Jihad against the western world. Since
it is politically expedient to be a CHRISTIAN when seeking major
public office in the United States, Barack Hussein Obama has joined
the United Church of Christ in an attempt to downplay his Muslim
background. ALSO, keep in mind that when he was sworn into office he
DID NOT use the Holy Bible, but instead the Koran.
Barack Hussein Obama will NOT recite the Pledge of Allegiance nor
will he show any reverence for our flag. While others place their hands
over their hearts, Obama turns his back to the flag and slouches.
The Muslims have a plan on destroying the US from the inside
out, what better way to start than at the highest level - through the office of the
President of the United States! Would you want this man leading our country?

Posted by: Do Your Homework, Stinky    Time/date: 2/6/2008 4:21:01 PM
You’d made the comment that “those Misty Ridge people jacked up the cost of property”, so, I decided to do some research. I found that North Tunnel currently has 3 vacant lots for sale and one with a riverside trailer. To compare apples to apples, we’ll disregard the property that has the trailer and keep our data specific to the vacant land only. Here we go;
1. You’ve got a river frontage parcel at the far north end of North Tunnel Road that is just slightly over an acre which is priced at $129,000.
2. You’ve got another river frontage parcel right next to the one mentioned above, also just over an acre which is also priced at $129,000.
3. You’ve got an 85’ wide x 512’ deep lot that’s kitty corner from The Hawkeye Tavern; this one is priced at about $85,000
If my math is correct, we’re talking about an average of some number slightly less than $114,333 / acre. I remember 20 years ago, or less, when all these properties, even with decent houses on them were selling for $20-30,000…I wish I’d have had the foresight to buy 10 of them. Was your comment concerning “those Misty Ridge people” referring to THEIR property or the properties of their neighbors down on the river? If you’re referring to the properties of others, then, I’m going to assume that you are not a land owner, because, if you were, then you’d have to be delighted that the value of your property has gone up, just like I am. If you’re referring to what’s been sold in Misty Ridge, then you better do you homework because they have never sold anything that’s even approached the price / acre that I’m seeing today. I think Scott S is right, YOU”VE ALREADY MISSED THE BOAT, because, I can almost guarantee that these 3 properties are going to sell for a price close to what’s being asked and I may be the first to buy one as an investment; they are all beautiful parcels and they are not making any more of them at this time. You sound like you may have bitten into a sour grape!!

Posted by: Proud To Be South Tunnel Resident    Time/date: 2/6/2008 11:02:46 AM
Anyone looking to settle in Kennerdell should consider South Tunnel Rd. (turn right off of bridge after crossing into Kennerdell). We live in a completely different world over here and the value of our real estate is much higher than the average shack on North Tunnel Rd. We have sun all winter long, whereas most of North Tunnel never sees the sun from September until late April; North Tunnel is absolutely frigid ALL WINTER LONG! Our wintertime temperatures are always at least 10 degrees warmer than the permafrost tundra typical of North Tunnel Rd. Our road is maintained much better due to the fact that it does not see the continuous freeze / thaw cycles that are typical of North Tunnel Rd. or the persistently rude ATVers buzzing back and forth 9 month / year (we’ve welded an impenetrable gate at the southeast end DEAD END – SO SORRY CHARLIE!!). We do not have nearly the number of hovels, outdated RVs, trailer trash, double-wides, docks, pontoons, taverns, drunks and junks that are strewn everywhere along North Tunnel Rd. AND, we don’t have to look at that industrial stockpile of piping and antique industrial drilling equipment every time we drive down our road. We also do not have a boat launch that clogs the road with outsiders all summer long. South Tunnel Rd. has attracted some high value homes over the past 10 years that will never come to North Tunnel Rd. where they have a tendency of playing “musical trailers”, moving them around every other year. When we sell a hovel on South Tunnel Rd., it is razed and replaced by a half-million $ home. People also respect the right-of-way and do not block it or attempt to control who comes in & out. We are able to do this because most of us have ample parking which is a major consideration as far as your real estate value. Most importantly, we respect the evening “quite time” and don’t have to listen to some Chimpanzee banging on some drum-set until 4 in the morning. Check us out!!

Sounds like they are getting down on ole’ Scott again for that big mess he’s made up there at Misty Ridge. Well, at least they’re not getting down on us ole’ Shaler folk who have invaded Wilson Park; isn’t it nice to see someone else come under fire for a change? I took a ride down North Tunnel to see for myself what everyone’s talking about; IT LOOKS LIKE AN INDUSTRIAL WAR ZONE with all the junk boats, docks and miscellaneous crap they have lying around. There’s one guy near the end of the road who actually has 4 boats sitting in his yard and hanging out over the road; you can't even see the river! Next time you head to the post office, take a look at a couple of them houses close to the bridge and you can actually imagine Deliverance II being filmed right there; what the heck is all that junk doing out on their porches? Yea boy, just like “Kennerdell Hunter” said, we are taking over at a rapid pace and we’re going to make Kennerdell look like the wrong side of the tracks within the next few years. Let’s keep it up boys and let’s give Mr. Stink-Hole the ole’ Wilson Park Welcome once we find out which rock he’s hiding under.

I’m happy to be part of a group that have been members of the Misty Ridge hunting club for several years and we’re glad to have the chance to participate, without being overrun by hordes of local yokels like you. Based on your negative BS, you’ve apparently been bred to view everything you see as your private and personal domain; always looking for a new potential dump-site, huh? We’re glad that Misty Ridge is a private club and not just another one of your Pennsylvania entitlement programs, so, you’re going to have to deal with it. In case you’ve not noticed, Pennsylvania has become a welfare state and it’s your type of mentality that’s sown these seeds which will lead to your imminent future financial failure and the failure of those who subscribe to your negativity. You’ve allowed these seeds to take root, now, over many generations, and, where has it gotten you? You, my friend, are in need of a change in your personal philosophy, and, we’re here to help!

We, as newcomers and owner / builders of summer homes and retirement homes, throughout Kennerdell, are changing how things will be done in the future. I ask you, Mister Stink, what’s been your contribution to this community that you claim “will be forever in your heart”; maybe some rotted out trailer or a dilapidated, moss covered hovel that scares potential buyers away from Kennerdell who have the money to invest that will lead to your and your neighbor’s property appreciation? A lot of us are sick and tired of all the junkers who have trashed Kennerdell and then sit on their tuffets and wait for someone else to clean up the mess; just look around, my friend! Do you like what you see? Just take a look out your window and then get up off that big thing that you sit on all day, get yourself motivated, and make some kind of an improvement…or get out of here.

I know you said you would not be back to this website, However I have a feeling you will. And if you decide to come back , READ THIS !!! The property owners in the Kennerdell area are happy and proud of what we have here. As far as your statement about Misty Ridge, you have no idea of what Scott has done to improve this area to keep it beautiful and from becoming a commercial wasteland. When I read your post , the only assumption that I could come up with is pure jealousy. I think I speak for all the wonderful people in Kennerdell. As far as people using this page to complain on, um, that would make you a hypocrite. For you also complained here. So the end result would be that your simply a " JEALOUS HYPOCRITE " and you probably should not move in or around the Kennerdell area. Best of Luck where ever you go. But please just GO!!!

Mr. Grow Up & Smell >>>>> It’s important to every Kennerdell land owner who has expended the effort to add value to their properties, that their properties have actually appreciated in price over the years and I’m not offering YOU any apologies that our time, sweat & efforts may have played a small roll in what’s taken place with respect to land values. Perhaps it’s due to my Chicagoland upbringing that I see beauty, opportunity and limitless potential within the Kennerdell community that so many take for granted. I believe that Kennerdell has the uniqueness to take advantage of the “ once in a lifetime - mass exodus “ of the baby-boomers from the crowded cities and we’re doing what we need to do to prepare for it…are you? I also see a whole bunch of anonymous posters who would rather tear down this community rather than build it up. What I see in Kennerdell is certainly better than what I see occurring in Oil City, Franklin and most other local communities caught up in the urban Appalachian “ blight-of-the-do-little “…I suppose you’d prefer depreciation? I’m truly heart-broken that you’ve missed the boat in Kennerdell, but it may not be too late! I’d suggest that you get yourself a ticket for the next departure and, this time, make sure that you arrive at the platform on time; no one is waiting around for you to get up off your couch.

As far as your comment regarding our website and that we should go back to where we came from…SORRY BUB, but we’re here to stay and, please don’t make the mistake of confusing me with someone who owes you something!

I think all of you Kennerdell people need to stop whining and being soooooo concerned about other people. This is my third visit to this website and all I read is griping. Appears as though the griping started once those "Misty Ridge" people moved in and jacked up the cost of property. Go back to where you came from and take your website with you. Charging people to ride ATV's and hunt...
So what if a few people go there to have fun. A little yelling and screaming brings lively hood to the hills.
No sense in replying to this post. I'll never visit this website again. Too much negative information being passed about a wonderful place to be. Kennerdell will forever be in my heart.

I have decided to come back home because your never around when I need you. I was lying on your couch for the last couple of weeks , waiting for you but you never showed. By the way, Your out of beer and those vintage playboy books, I had to use for pooper paper because the mice took yours. And I think you will probably need to bring a big plunger to get it working again. From the postings I have been reading here, I think your gonna need a bigger couch. Please Dr. Phil , Get back here soon. Our town is falling to pieces and we need some of your expert advice to keep it together. Shall we gather at the river ? I'll be singing He'll be coming round the mountain till you get here. Take Care and HURRY !!!! Trivia Question ! Outside Peg and Dukes store there was a soda machine and in it was what kind of Rootbeer ? I think I have the only bottle left.

Don’t feel bad Mr. Deliverance…….I own a place on North Tunnel Rd. that I visit almost every weekend, at least 9 months during the year and fairly regularly in the winter. I can count on having to get out of my truck at least once,…….often twice, and start banging on garage doors and trailers anytime from the middle of the afternoon to the middle of the night in order to get the drunks into their vehicles and off of the right-of-way so that we can get thru to the turn around when I’m dragging my trailer. I figure on about a 5-10 minute delay per drunk, so I have learned to plan accordingly.

I wheel surprised dat Professor Walzunder Miyize (sounds like a rich, Jewish he-she…..kinda cute I’ll bet) wood be havin touch difficulty believin dat it could actually happen twice in one weekend, when, sometimes it happens to me twice in one night!!!!!!!!!! Waz up wit da BS Walzie???????? You either must not know the road situation or you’re sitting smack dab at the heart of the problem! Which is it? Also, a 7 degree winter afternoon or night is when the problem is most prevalent. The drunks don’t be expecting traffic during da winter months, n everyone is inside warmin up to da bottle and know one even hears em honkin because the music is so friggin loud. Cut da BS, Walzie………you got a problem up there!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can’t speak for “What does Kennerdell Want to be”, however, as a prospective land buyer and home builder, all I really care about is what Kennerdell is today. I think it would be a great thing, as Pastor Bobbie points out, if people could really see the wondrous warmth which, undoubtedly, lies in the hearts of Kennerdell’s residents who call the gorgeous riverside community their home, BUT, when purchasing real estate, curb appeal, neighbors and location are the most important considerations when contemplating the largest investment that the typical family will ever make. It’s my wife who put her foot down based upon our initial experience; first impressions are tough to change! I don’t personally hold any grudge against those who prevented our travels and scared my daughters, but it is an indicator as to how the red carpet was rolled out to people who were perceived as “outsiders”. We’d be foolish not to take this experience into consideration when making our decision. Please don’t misunderstand because we’re not giving up on the Kennerdell area; we will buy and build somewhere nearby and we are currently looking at alternate options on South Tunnel Road, Wilson Pork, Seneca Hemlock, Titas Road, North Kent Road, Brandon and Mystic Ridge; there are many options around the Kennerdell area and the entire area is beautiful, but, the decision’s been made that we will avoid Kennerdell’s downtown area and North Tunnel Road. We have yet to visit the Sunny Slopes subdivision, but, this is another option we plan to explore. Thank you for your response to “WDKWTB”; it shows me that there are good people who are concerned with the perception of their village and its future. At the same time, I think there were a number of valid observations that “WDKWTB” had made which certainly need to be addressed if the Kennerdell community is looking toward maximizing its curb appeal, value, appreciation, long term village prosperity and continuous improvement.

Please permit me to answer the post about "What Does Kennerdell Want To Be?" Seems to me you were only looking at the outside of Kennerdell. Won't you try and spend time with the PEOPLE of Kennerdell and then rethink your opinion. The folks who have lived here, worked hard here and raised their families here are better than your judgment of who they are. It's so true that man looks on the outside but God looks on the heart. These folks have wonderful hearts as they care about one another and help when there's a need. It's a small community that is wondering what is happening to the quiet,serene and safe place it once was. I think you would truly enjoy the spirit that embodies the "river folk" if you can look beyond what you can see! Blessings to you, Pastor Bobbie

Wow, that last writing really hit home based upon our one experience in Kennerdell a couple weeks back! My wife, family and I made an attempt to check on 2 adjacent parcels we’d heard were for sale on North Tunnel, but, we came upon a road block of several vehicles preventing us from getting past on the narrow road. After honking, we were descended upon by a group of Town Drunks who gave us the 3rd degree on What we were doing, Where we were going and What business we had on the road. They slurred to us that we were on a private road and that only land owners were allowed to use it. I explained that we were looking for 2 parcels of land said to be for sale, but this “goon squad” appeared in no condition to understand anything and told us that we were completely misinformed and we’d be wise to leave. These guys were so wasted that we all had a hard time understanding what they were slurring, so, we decided to back up for well over a half mile before we could safely turn around. On our way out, we kept our eyes peeled for slanted eyes playing banjos and it was very scary for my daughters; they were crying. Anyway, we’re now considering the Brady area for a suitable parcel in a more friendly, less inbred community. This was a big disappointment and a waste of our time; I can only wonder what it’s like during the peak months of summer; it’s got to be quite a freak show!

Praise the Lord that we’re NOT Kennerdellians, but, we will take the opportunity to respond to the survey. OUR ANSWER IS EITHER #9 AND / OR #7. I believe that a few bucks or beers may have gotten us in past the Hillbilly Toll-Stop, but, I was taking no chances with my family on having to “squeal like a Pig” to be provided “Deliverance” on the way back out in front of my wife and daughters. I think we made the right decision by simply backing on out while we still had the chance to get away. Thanks, but we’ll pass on Kennerdell!

I’m looking for a place to build my dream home and retire in a few years and, after a review of your community’s website, I was intrigued enough to make the 90 mile trip, BUT, I was highly disappointed in what I’d seen at river level…especially along North Tunnel Road. I was left with the impression that Kennerdell really has no clue as to what it wants to be when it grows up. Would you Kennerdellian townsfolk PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO COMMPLETE MY SURVEY? Your input will be instrumental in my decision as to where I will purchase and build? Here are my questions:

1.) Is Kennerdell going to be a trailer park?
2.) Is Kennerdell going to be a dry-dock for broken down boats?
3.) Is Kennerdell going to be an industrial storage area for pipe?
4.) Is Kennerdell going to be a storage area for “museum quality” heavy equipment?
5.) Is Kennerdell going to be an RV park for broken down RVs?
6.) Is Kennerdell going to be an RV storage facility for vintage model beauties?
7.) Is Kennerdell going to install a toll road to the north gate?
8.) Is Kennerdell going to allow boats and permanent structures to encroach on the road easement that we would require to get in & out easily?
9.) Is Kennerdell going to be “all of the above”?

Your community needs to implement a plan and take some action if it’s going to attract quality, well-heeled, single-family residential home-starts. Based upon my initial impression, I expect that “answer #9” is the most likely long-term probability, and therefore, we’re now concentrating our search on Wilson Park, Misty Ridge and Seneca Hemlock, all of which appear to be operating under some type of coherent, consistent plan. For the record, we’ve also looked at Sunny Slopes and it’s in about the same shape as the Village of Kennerdell…another hodge-podge of “all of the above”. NO THANKS!!!...give me the virgin high country…just like Mountain-Side Mama With A Gun had eluded. Thank you Ms. Mama…you’re my kind of gal!!!

Rick has a point. It’s just human nature ( actually human flaws ) to trash anyone and everyone; no one is immune from the Wrathe of people like Wrathe. By copy to Rick, I understand you’re looking for a boat? You might want to peruse North Tunnel Roads before making a decision on your next dream-boat. The next time you’re in town, you’ll see there are many options to choose from; North Tunnel Road is a virtual “showroom” and it will save you the price of admission for Pittsburgh’s upcoming boat show at the Convention Center or Cleveland’s IX Center. You might also consider connecting with Papa Pole; I’m sure he’d be very pleased to meat you and show you around his boat yard. I also noticed that there’s an absolute BEAUTY about a mile southwest of the Kennerdell Bridge that’s on the right side of the road as you’re heading out of town. You’ll see that there are lots of options here in Kennerdell for finding that perfect rub-a-dub-dub-for-three-men-in-a-tub! LOL!!!

I have a cabin in Wilson Park and I guess I am one of the "city slicker". If we are being catagorized, let's call us what we really are.... good people just having fun at our camp. Wilson park is not just a plan of homes. We all own property in the plan so let's find a way to coincide together.

Does anyone know what the definition of Insanity??? It's doing the same thing over and over but expecting different results. Your emails will not change how we act, what we drink, or the volume of our music. Talking with us will make the difference.

Oh, pistol packin’ mama, everytime I read your posts, it causes me to gig my bobber and I’m afraid I’m going to miss that big fish because it’s quivering my worm. I’m the best fisherman in Kennerdell and have a nice trailer down here on Tunnel Road with a couple of boats. Is there any chance that we could meat some day? Between your shootin skills and my proven abilitys with my pole, I’m sure we’d always have food on the table and could live happy ever after; you’re place or mine with a fine bottle of wine? Please let me know how I might contact you. I would really love to meat you. Where do you live any what is the chance of getting together? Awaiting your reply. Happy New Year and I’d like to make it a good year together with you. I’m very lonely and hope that you respond soon.

ATVtraction, Inc. revoked Wrathe’s membership last year due to several “unmentionables“ that he’d been involved in, to the embarrassment of the club at more than one group function. ATVtraction, Inc. was also well-aware that Wrathe was stirring up trouble for the club in Kennerdell by spewing his threatening venom all over the Kennerdell Community Page for a considerable period of time, also. We also suspect that Wrathe had gone under several aliases on the Community Page in an attempt to “cover his tracks” on a number of issues that really were none of his business. We, at ATVtraction, do not like to dwell on negativism, so we’ll keep ”the particulars” under-wraps, but, it’s safe to say that Wrathe has now been forced out and, hopefully, moved in the direction of greener pastures, clubs and other community page forums; in any event, he’s out of Kennerdell and won’t be coming back. We wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors and trust that, for his own sake, there’s been a lesson that’s been learned.

River-side Papa with a Pole! Did you read my initial post? I’d never even consider a date with some Strange-Moe living in some run-down, rodent infested trailer on the edge of the Allegheny River, much less, someone that has a Venango-edjimicated vocabulary and multiple boats; both of which are probably blocking the road’s right-of-way, right?. I’m envisioning your trailer is 50s-70s vintage, maybe pink, purple or pea-green? Probably parked on someone else’s land? Can I assume you’re also unemployed? Believe me, I’ve driven down both Tunnel roads enough times to realize that I’d made an excellent decision and investment by avoiding the Tunnel roads, entirely, when I finally decided to settle into Kennerdell’s fresh, high-country. Papa Pole, I’d also recommend that you sign-up for English 101; your homonyms could use some refreshment. Good luck finding a suitable mate, and, this time, I’ll assume you’ll take the time to bait your hook properly!

By copy to Rick, you might want to peruse North and South Tunnel Roads before making a decision on your next dream-boat. The next time you’re in town, you’ll see there are many options to choose from; North Tunnel Road is a virtual “showroom” and it will save you the price of admission for Pittsburgh’s upcoming boat show at the Convention Center. You might also consider connecting with Papa Pole; I’m sure he’d be very pleased to meat you and show you around his estate. I also noticed that there’s an absolute BEAUTY about a mile southwest of the Kennerdell Bridge that’s on the right side of the road as you’re heading out of town. You’ll see that there are lots of options here in Kennerdell for finding that perfect rub-a-dub-dub-for-three-men-in-a-tub! LOL!!!

By copy to Doctors Phil and Watson, I think you’re heading in the right direction if you’re planning to establish your practices here in the Kennerdell area. I believe you’ll both be quite pleased with the potential clientele.

Mountain-Side Mama With A Gun!!, In response to your question about kennerdell.org, My wife was the person who maintained that site for a few years. We did have quite a few visitors, and did have some historical photos, as well of photos from community events on the site. The site was paid for by the Kennerdell Community Center, and maintained by my wife. As I am sure you can appreciate, our lives got quite busy with her going to school full time, and working, and myself working long days, and sometimes weekends. We then bought a new house, in Kennerdell, and had a baby, and as I am sure you know, family comes first. We had to prioritize, and we were not able to do as much as we used to. There has been some discussion recently about somebody else wanting to start that site up again, and maintaining it. My wife also talked about wanting to do it again also, but right now she/we are not able to commit the time needed.

Has Mrs. Local responded to your request for the historic pictures? Please keep us informed. I ( and I believe I speak for the vast majority ) want to see our community’s website expand in content. I WOULD LOVE TO SEE THE HISTORIC PHOTOS OF KENNERDELL INCLUDED, but, it’s my feeling that if you’re looking for a contribution from the locals, I would not hold your breath! We should all do our part to improve and promote Kennerdell and its website, to the mutual benefit of all residents and land owners. I am also very pleased that we all have a voice through the Community Page of kennerdell.com, and that the facts and the exposure of those who regularly show inconsiderate, rude, late-night behavior has finally been brought into focus and up for discussion.
Although I’ve seen major improvements over the past 10+ years in certain areas, the Kennerdell community is still in need of MAJOR CHANGE and it will not begin until there is dedicated involvement by more than a just a few tireless workers; we all need to get involved! Didn’t the Kennerdell Community have their own website? Was it not www.kennerdell.org? What happened to it and why is it not on-line anymore? I see that Misty Ridge’s www.kennerdell.com was actually promoting the .org competition and, now, when I type the .org site into my browser, the only thing that comes up is .com’s promotion of .org? Who dropped the ball, and why? Let me guess; too much work and not enough drive to get up off the couch? Did I hit the nail on the head again? Regardless, we’ll stick with .com; it’s very professionally done and we LOVE the Community Page because it humorous, informative and rings as true as a bell to what I personally see going on. We need a change and I can see excellent changes on the horizon; let’s all give the community a chance to mature under new leadership and let’s not bury the truth for the sake of promoting a community that needs to pull itself out of the stone-age.

Its amazing how in this community we are so eager to spread the word when someone screws up. I have screwed up and been the talk of the town ,but rest assured someone will take my place. I have come to realize that this is one poop playing community, because it seems like everyone loves to play in other peoples poop. Take notice when something nice or positive is posted nobody responds , but when someone throws poop at someone everybody jumps right in to play. People who live in paper houses should not throw poop. And by the looks of things around here there are a lot of paper houses with holes in them. Constipation is not a problem here in Kennerdell we all seem to have the runs, because when someone poops we all run with it. As an old addage states we should love thy neighbor not poop on thy neighbor. And believe me everybody's poop stinks just ask thy neighbor. Like I said I have screwed up and I will be the first one to admit my poop stinks, does yours ? Although all this poop slinging does provide entertainment , it does nothing to support the peace and serenity that we all strive for in this community. So the next time you see your neighbor shake his hand and tell him to have a nice day. Then you might want to go wash your hands just in case. lol. Take Care everyone and Have A Wonderful Day.!!!

After reading some of what is on this page, I am amazed at how so much of the "Positive Kennerdell" is not discussed. But then so many of us do not see the positive as the negative is so visible and more entertaining or so its thought! We have a resident from Kennerdell who will be 99 yrs old next month. Think about sending her a card. Laveina Sines, The Caring Place, 103 N 13th St., Franklin, Pa. 16323. Her birthday is Feb. 25. She's sharp as a tack and has only positive things to say about the Kennerdell she loves so much. Julia Myers is another Kennerdell treasure who loves to discuss what Kennerdell has been. That is the key to why we can enjoy the beauty of the place now. Her son Charlie, has worked very hard to keep this community safe and sound for us to enjoy. It might just feel good for you to say "thank you" to these folks for what they stand for. I know it's easier to tear down than it is to build up but what do you have left when you do that? Someone wrote, it's a new year; the old is over and done. Let it go and try to do something new for yourself and our community....fly like an eagle and things just might look different to you! Happy New Year!

its time to drop the drama and the same naggin about the same
people and same topics..about 5 months went by and shaler is still being brought up, but now the focus switched onto other people, but one retard still likes to throw in a laugh about the 'city slickers'... this site is really gettin out of hand..no one knows when to stop and when to keep their mouth shut

its time for some nice comments about kennerdell, after reading
this site no one is going to want to come up anymore or even

Seeing a ghost,
There was a professor at PSU conducting a lector on ghosts and paranormal. He asked the class if anyone had ever seen a ghost, 80% of the class raised their hands. Next he asked if anyone thought that they had talked to a ghost, 50% raised their hands. Next he asked if anyone had thought that they touched a ghost, 20% raised their hands. He was getting such a good response that he was going to ask one more and final question. Has anyone ever had sex with a ghost, one fellow in the rear of the class from Kennerdale raised his hand. The professor stunned asked the Kennerdalian to come to the front of the room. He said that he had been doing this for 26 years and never had anyone ever said that they thought that they had sex with a ghost. Oh my God the Kennerdalian said, I was in the back of the class and it was hard to hear, I thought you asked if anyone ever had sex with a GOAT.

Scott, after reading the long running series of diatribe that’s regularly posted on this site, I have no idea why you even make the effort to maintain it, while putting yourself through the daily anguish of having to explain your positions and actions. Personally, I find the website to be informative and entertaining, however, the flack that’s sent your way, even from those who have lived here their entire lives, but done nothing in terms of making any tangible contribution to the community other than issuing their complaints and criticisms???...all I can say is that it’s a testament to why Kennerdell will remain mired in a 1950’s mentality for decades to come. I’m sure you’ll agree with me when I say that “I’m just glad to live up here on the hill” where we have the wide open spaces, room to roam & breathe, void of the Kennerdell-Klutter that Kennerdell’s forefathers had no foresight to prevent. Two boats in every yard and no place to park a few cars when I’m having a party; OH YEA, that’s exactly what I want out of life! Although I’ve followed the community page for many years, this is my first post to the site, however, you can expect me to become a regular, because, I can no longer keep my mouth shut. Good Luck with it!

To Julie Matthews:
I was tied in with a group of drinking budies that started Slackers Bar & Grill in Oil City on Elm Street years ago. I go by Slackers & Crew when using the internet, MSN and chat forms, etc. I am interested in purchasing the Hawkie Tavern form who ever own it and I do not want to use my real name cause I would be familiar to many customers in Kennerdale. I also no who Charlie is and I no he is in succession of title to the property acording to the tax records that Ive looked at. For your use, always best that real estate transactions need to be kept low key prior to signing sales agreements and I am willing to pay a high profit price to your dad for the tavern. There was no disrespect or was there any incinuation that your dad, Mr. Gerlach or anyone else was running an illegal speakeasy. I simply saw that there was a posting to this website on 10-26-07 and 10-28-07 that referred to it as AN ESTABLISHMENT, which, in my mind means A BUSSINESS. I’m interested in buying the ESTABLISHMENT when its finaly for sale. I like the fact that there is no police force in the town and that Kennerdale has an long standing anything-goes reputation with a excellent customer base. Ive been past this tavern many times and it is always very busy on weekends.
Please let me know who to contact to discuss the possibility of a sale weather now or in the future. Do I call Charlie? Please let me know the best number. THANK YOU.

Julie>>>Our site contains a “ Community Page “ that provides access to all who want to make “ posts “ and our criteria has been that we do not censure anything other than “ Foul Language “…we have filters for that. Yes, the original intent was, and will remain, to place Kennerdell in the best possible light,…please don’t lose sight of the fact that we’ve also made a big investment in Kennerdell. We continue to promote the area vigorously and are optimistic as to the community’s future in many different respects, BUT, as with everything Internet related, things may be written that may be upsetting to some…including Cindy and me. If you’ve followed the community page over the years, you would have seen that I was continually coming “ under fire “ on a number of issues by anonymous posters, BUT…we still posted every one of them!! We’re glad these postings have now dropped off the bottom of the page due to the amount of allotted server memory.

Where do you draw the line and what would give us the right to be the ones who decide where to draw it?? I am not fond of censorship of any type…are you??

If you, personally, want to make a positive contribution, why don’t you take on the responsibility of scanning all those ancient Kennerdell photos that your family has from “ years gone by “?...there are shoe-boxes full of them. I’ve talked this over with Charlie, Darlene & Julia, and, although I was given a few ( which I promptly returned after scanning )…I still do not have enough to make it worth our while to develop a slide show. If you want to preserve the interesting history of Kennerdell for all to enjoy and make a positive contribution of your own, please provide us with a CD-ROM or “ mass storage device “ containing those old “ black & whites “ such that we can incorporate them into Kennerdell’s website…it would be very nice and better than anything we currently have. Please give me a call to discuss when convenient.

To Scott: I thought this was to be a positive site about our area.

To Slacker and Crew: What were you trying to infere about the Hawkeye Inn? Are you saying it is an illegal speakeasy? Are you implying that my dad has done something illegal? This is Bob's private residence. (By the way, my dad is Charlie, not Bob.) Why do you use a code name. Maybe others who follow this site know who you are. If you are going to make derogatory comments naming people directly, you should atleast use your real name.

I’ve tried to do some research on the Hawkie Tavern and, based upon the parcel’s tax ID, I see that it is owned by Charlie Myers. Is Charlie Myers the man who runs the Hawkie Tavern? Is Gerlack that bartender that lives in the old green trailer beside it? What are the hours that they are open? I thought Kennerdale was a dry town in a dry township? What’s up? We are looking for a place to party in the evenings and get drunk. What is the phone number because I can’t find any number in the book?

From a woman’s perspective, if I caught my new husband cheating on me after only 1 month of marriage, I would have his little worm and pair of peas clamped down in my vice so quick and so tight that he might FINALLY be able to hit that hi note in his rendition of “ I Did It My Way”. He’d also be wearing that base drum as a cute little tutu, both tom-toms for bracelets and his snare drum as a hat. Mrs. Hawkie; why don’t you do all of your neighbors a big favor and see how many of those drums you can work into his ensemble so that we can all get some peace and quiet in the neighborhood? We’re all tired of hearing the same old crap until 4 in the morning.

As I understand it, these events went hand in hand with another big fist fight and assault that occurred at the Hawkie Inn which then led to her running her vehicle down North Tunnel Road in excess of 70 MPH, ripping down your fence, destroying SRE’s gas meter, tearing through trees and shrubbery and endangering my property as well as the lives of those who live in this fine community. I’ve examined her Jeep Liberty, which now resembles a Sardine can after it’s been cracked open; lots of damage that neither of you can hardly afford; GREAT BOB-JOB. The next time that we see either of you racing after each other down North Tunnel Road or playing Chicken on our private road, which, I understand is becoming a bi-weekly event, SRE gas company has asked that we block your path, call the Pennsylvania State Police and have you both thrown in the drunk tank and charged with DUI and reckless endangerment. My friends at SRE are very upset with the huge loss of natural gas that you caused and have not made arrangements to cover, so, I’m letting you know the actions we've been asked to take, such that your able to save the money you’ll need to cover your bail, attorney costs and fines. I fully expect you'll also be hearing from SRE gas company's attorney via registered mail soon, but, in the meantime, grow up already and curb your shrew.

Message to Ruth McMillin >>> I contacted John regarding your inquiry and he referred to you as " Aunt Ruth ", so, I think he knows you and he said he would make contact with you. He is related to the family that has the old McMillin Cemetery here in Kennerdell, so it sounds like a " sure thing " that there is a relationship with you, as well. Please try to make contact with John...I'm sure he'd be happy to hear from & touch base with a long-lost relative.

Congats on making it to 88! Cindy & I wish you a very Merry Christmas and we hope that you have another 88 good years ahead of you.

I'm from shaler and I have a camp in brandon. I like to come up on the weekends and have a good time. I've been known to have the radio going into the night and I'm sorry if it has bothered anyone. If people from shaler are too loud then you people that complain about it should get off your ass and tell them. Being the fine hardworking and respectful folk that we are would be happy to accomodate anyone's complaints. I don't get all the Shaler and Pgh bashing that goes on. The weekenders pay a good portion of the taxes in thease areas and are starting to build higer end vacation homes which brings in more tax dollars so how about showing a little respect to us city folk

" Posted by: not enjoying your party Time/date: 8/5/2007 10:09:12 AM
I just can not beleive how disrespectful some people are.I can understand that this is your camp. and you come here to have a good time. That is all fine and dandy ,drink as much as you want and have all the fun you can have, but cant you tone it down after 11 oclock? Closing our windows on a hot summer night is not fun for us, listening to your loud music until 1 oclock am is not fun either.We live here along with others that live here.We are not always off on the weekends ,when you have to get up early after being kept up all night it is not what I call a fun weekend.Why cant you come up here and have fun and show a little respect for others?Why do you have to scream at the top of your lungs? I bet they can hear you on the other mountain. I do not want to make enimies here, I show you respect so can you please do the same?"
I try ann deal with yall...make mention that it duz bother me somewhat,and callz yall a bunch of clowns....well ya act that way expect to be seed that way.Yall want nice things on this here page look in the mirror.This page had crying about Brantners kids boozin from the lower road ana how yall should call the police and tern them in..yall call the weekenders a pain in the butt and they get all wack up likes we a bunch of farmers...So doan yall put it on 'Ol Goober..youz all guilty of been hippocrits.

Posted by: anyways...    Time/date: 11/17/2007 6:57:47 PM
i think this whole thing shouldnt have ever been even brought up on here anyway it's really gotten out of hand, this whole page is filled with drama. goober just needs to keep his mouth shut, and say something to the shaler group himself, not let the whole damn town of kennerdell know. and for anyone else that has a problem with the partyin and drinkin, then just say it to them.. the last atleast 20 comments were against the shaler/pittsburgh people, so if you want peace and stuff, atleast be cival about it, not try to put your word across on the internet...

seriously, how many people actually read this shit? only people
that really truely has nothing better to do with their lives
come on here and check it everyday, and have to put their word it.

hopefully you will agree with me on this

Responding to Ruth McMillin Cunningham>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Ruth, I know where the cemetery is. It was partially on property that we previously owned ( and have since sold ) and partially on property now owned by Jim Schry...the farmer next door. The folks we sold the property to have made improvements to the cemetery by erecting a decorative fence and have done a nice job. I'm not sure as to the history, but there is a gentleman by the name of John R. ( Jack ) McMillin who is the Controler of Butler County, here in NW Pennsylvania who is the great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great grandson of the original settlers. I met this man at the Kennerdell Look-Out in August who was searching for the cemetery. If you are looking to make contact with him his details are as follows. John McMillin, County of Butler, PO Box 1208, Butler, PA 16003-1208. His phone number is (724) 284-5131 and his e-mail is jmcmilli@co.butler.pa.us. I'm sure John would be happy to speak with you. Just as an FYI...it is suspected that there was a body dug-up & stolen from your cemetery many years ago...the hole is still plainly visible. There was an investigation, but no one was apprehended. They were probably looking for Civil War relics.
Anyway,...I hope this helps and GOOD LUCK in tracking down your roots!!!

First of all Goober is kind of out there a bit,But he does have a point.Sure this is your camp and you should have fun when you come here, but you should show respect for the older folks who like to come here and RELAX.and also for the people who live here.We love it here too. That is why we chose to live here.You are giving the Pittsburgh people a bad name when you are so loud.You say it is nothing big, well it is when you are disturbing the peace.And we really do not care how much you drink as long as it does not affect anyone else.You said Kennerdell may not be the right place for you,if you are going to be so disrespectful I honestly do not know of any place that would be right for you.And people who live here in wilson park all get along. We look out for one another and we will look out for you too.We are not true campers I guess, but we are true friends<nieghbors and homeowners. So to your loud all night noise ,as you said in your letter,"we dont want to hear it" we just want to get along,Thats not asking too much is it.We are all adults after all.

Sounds to me like we have a good ole' feud a brewin' while the pigs be a stewin'. Never been to Shaler, but I hear the Women there could be Whalers. I really don't want to get in the middle of another Wilson Park boo-foo, because I don't want to wind up on the spit and I never ever want to be tied to a tree and told to "squeal like a pig".

End it boys! We all have something that's good in Wilson Park. Real estate values have sky-rocketed ( congrats to the land owners - condolences to the procrastinating "bonners" ), the roadways are improving and the structures that have been built throughout the park are setting new, higher standards. All in all, Wilson Park is a great place to live ( and it's going to get much better ), so it might be a good idea to leave the hatred back in Pigsburgh...where it belongs. Let's try to set an example of how a community can work together toward common goals worth pursuing and we will all be rewarded. If you want to see nice returns on your collective investments, we have got to come together as a cohesive neighborhood and not post things within this web-forum that cast the neighborhood in a cloud of negativity. All the negativity that emanates from WP is enough to scare your prospective buyers away!


As far as the "hootin' & hollarin'"...you can count me in. As far as the next pig roast, I hope I receive an invite.

Also you can’t expect people to not ‘hoot-n-holler” on a holiday weekend. And before you go talking like the cool cat you think are its the trail behind the BRANTERS not BRANTLEYS, get your facts straight smart ass... And no one from our ‘party’ went in a jeep down that trial. Although there was an incident with Glenn White’s brother in law who was an inexperienced driver on a quad went down that trail and hit a rock the wrong way and went over the side, which had to get life flighted. And you cant just ‘walk out’ a concussion and a hole in your head. And for your information..I like how the user, leradoo said “Are you saying that those city slickers are smarter than you are?” as the matter of fact yes we are smarter then you, considering we can spell DAYS not DAZE and also DON’T instead of DOAN.

Wow, Goober… you really are a true goober. When I say this I think I speak for all the “drunks” up around the bend…If you wanna talk your ‘shit’ to us shaler city slickers how about speaking in language that we can actually understand. Just like the one person
said--It’s pretty sad that you have nothing else better to do in your life then sit behind a computer and talk stuff on people, when it‘s suppose to be a page where people can say how much they like Kennerdell, not for people to hear your bullshit. We come up Wilson park to have a good time, if you have any problem with that, then come up and say it to our face not spread our business all over the internet for other people to see. I like how you use the pharse ‘shaler clowns’ when mean while I bet you have never even been in shaler or even know what it is like or about, your just too busy talking like the damn redneck, hillbilly that you are. You said--“c'mon down sonny boy and get ure medicine.Yall doan wann mess with the Finchley clan.” I don’t see you coming up to the crazy alcoholics and complaining or atleast asking to tone it down a bit. You’re all talk and no action. And for your information ‘that poor dead pig up the mountain over labor day’ was mighty good and it was bought to be eaten, and if it wasn’t suppose to be ate then they wouldn’t be selling it for people to buy. And considering you live in Wilson Park, I bet that you are a hunter, probably going around shooting deer that aren’t suppose to be shot, its just another fun thing for a hillbilly to do. And your telling me that you don’t eat dead animals, unless you’re a veggiterian you must be lying, considering you live in the middle of no-where land, where most people go hunting at.

Rick: I should have mention it to you, but, I knew there would be more people than we really needed...which has always been the case. The ATVtraction guys have got a plan and put it into action...Bingo, Bango, Bongo...it's done! I actually received the newsletter which stated the cleanup date 5 days after it had taken place, too. I'll let you know the next time, which is usually in late April close to Earth Day.
Thanks for your humor...I'm sure everyone gets as much of a " kick out of it " as we do. I would like to see you enter your speed boat in The Great Kennerdell Regada this next summer; I think you'd stand a very good chance at winning the grand prize. The next time you're coming into Kennerdell, you might want to grab that recliner that's sitting along the road...you'd be floating in style.

It appears the Burke / Bennett / Hagar team is getting geared up for the CHRISTmas season at their business enterprise southwest of the Kennerdell Bridge. In fact, it seems they’ve now expanded their product-line such that they’re now handling an impressive array of recliners and other select pieces of furniture. It was just prior to CHRISTmas last year that they staged their “Grand-Opening”, and I’m glad to see that, one year later, the business is still looking good and, obviously, remaining healthy. You know, 50% of all businesses fail within the first year of operation, so, all indications are that the business remains healthy and fiscally strong.

I believe there’s also a new satellite facility that Mr. Hager’s expanding into along North Tunnel Road? Based upon what I’ve heard, this branch will be specializing in Harley Davidson “after-market” custom parts and accessories. I drove by the hovel last Saturday morning and saw him trying to pull his hair out of his drive-belt, so, I would not be surprised if there are future plans for further expansion into apparel and head-wear, given the fact that most of his hair is now laying in the driveway. I would like to personally wish him the best in his latest “venture” and continued success into the future.

We had a great day for the road clean-up -- the weather was great ! ! What a great bunch of people to be affiliated with. It is amazing that the locals can not seem to get it together to do something positive for the community and the surrounding area. It takes the visitors (the people that appreciate the beauty of our environment even though they do not live here) to help maintain what God created. People that trash our natural beauty and then make excuses why they can't clean up after themselves (like the Bennett area) should be heavily fined and then maybe they would find the resources and/or the time to clean up their own eye-sore ! ! ! Some people live their whole lives procrastinating and making up phoney excuses (they must have learned this at an early age) and some people don't just sit around talking about what should be done -- they just get up off their duffs and do it (they are the successful ones in life). Anyway, I have said enough -- so I had better get moving again -- time to get off my duff -- HAVE A GOOD _______ ! ! !

Just wanted to take a moment to thank Scott and Cindy for their time to help the members of ATV Traction in cleaning up the road ways in the kennerdell area. I will admit that the many hands made little work of the job that was ahead of the members of ATV Traction. I especially want to thank the younger people that were involved in cleaning up in your community. See everyone in the spring for the next clean up. Kennerdell is such a nice place with many friendly people, I have been coming to the area for almost 40 years now and enjoy it as much today as I did when I was younger.

Thanks also for picking up after " The Bennetts " mess...that thick pile of garbage close to Broken Bridge is now gone and I can tell you that's the biggest improvement that could have been made.

Just open a free account on photobucket.com and load them there. Then post the link and Scott can pick and choose some of the pics to add if he and you would like. Plus we could all see the pics that you have taken of wonderful Kennerdell. Just a suggestion.

Posted by: Scott S    Time/date: 10/5/2007 9:01:48 AM
If you want to, we can compare some pics. If you've got some nice ones, we would be happy to include them in our website, with proper credit to you. I would need to receive them on a CD and we could set up a section within our site that could include a bunch of thumbnails, which, when expanded, would bring them up full-screen. Might even be able to set them up as a slide show!...might be nice!!
Feel free to give me a call anytime...724-981-5444 x-317 M-F 7A-4P or at hime after 5:00PM...814-498-2070 if you'd like to discuss.
Best Regards,

I agree 100% that something needs to be done on the other side of the bridge, but Rockland Twp, nor anybody from the town of Kennerdell can do a thing about it as far as I know. Once you cross the Kennerdell bridge, you are in Clinton Twp, not Rockland. Here is the information for the Township building.

What’s with all the pig-slop hovels surrounding Marlowe’s Scenic River Campground on west side of the Kennerdell Bridge? Who would want to camp amidst the debris and swim downstream of the raw sewage that’s coming flowing in from all the squatters ( no pun intended ) who camp upstream of their facility? Don’t you people have any pride in your community and why would The Bennett’s segment of Adopt-a-Highway be in such pooped up shape? Who are these people and why is PENN-DOT allowing them to maintain their Adopt-a-Highway signage if they are not willing to put forth a minimal required amount of effort to follow through with their obligation? Does anyone have their phone number or know where they live?...and please don’t tell me they live along that section of roadway!?! I am with ATVtraction and would like to discuss expanding our segment of Adopt-a-Highway all the way to the Kennerdell Bridge, such that we can clean up their mess and get things back to some presentable level of order. Please let me know how to contact these people: something has got to be done! Thanks!

Best of both worlds, here...My family has owned camps from the Wilson Park, vairety to a camp alongside the Allegheny River (down river side of the bridge) to a Farm dubbed by my family the "Funny Farm" in Eau Claire. I may not have been born in Kennerdell but who can say that they were, if you were, then you must be Ancient. No hospitals in Kennerdell, PA. But I was raised, there and elsewhere (Kennerdell to Eau Claire to Clintonville to Pittsburgh) and many points, in between!

So who are the real deal "Local Yokels" here anyways?

Rick…thanks for the positive comments; it’s always a pleasure to see that someone from outside the area has found something good to say about Kennerdell, its residents and resources. As you’ve seen and read, we have more than our fair share of Appalachian, root-bound, complainers who feel it’s their god-given right to be “labeled as disabled” and showered with every possible entitlement program, exploiting every possible loop-hole in the system to insure their “free meal ticket” arrives, monthly. Then, these same parasites trash their rented residences that are paid for by Section 8 and leave the mess to be cleaned up by someone else...JUST LOOK AROUND! Whether we’re talking about the Access Card, disability, SSI, Food Stamps or the host of other little “gimmes” such as their free prescriptions plans that keep their candy dishes filled to the brim with pain-killers…we certainly have our fair share of “do-littles” who are well-accustomed and perfectly adapted by their generations to suck off the system; it’s become their way of life and they don’t want it to change. It is these people who are not pleased that the “outsiders” are taking over how the community moves forward.
Here’s the biggest problem…~85% of the residences in Kennerdell are seasonal and the owners of these properties are not entitled to a vote. Therefore, these root bound Appalachians which comprise ~15% of the flop-houses also control ~100% of the votes. Take a look at the progress that’s been made by the “local yokel” over the past 100 years and then compare it with the progress that been made by the implants, mup-ears, out-of-towners, burgers, Ohioans over the past 10 years. Believe me, the money that’s now bringing urban renewal to Kennerdell is not coming from Venango County…it never will. The money that brings renaissance will come from across the Kennerdell Bridge.
As my final point…you ought to see rush hour in Kennerdell on a Monday morning! Believe me…you won’t feel rushed!

why would anyone care about someone crapping in the woods. it is good fertilizer for the trees and mushrooms. of course it is not pleasant seeing somone crapping but we all do it. crap is only the waste products of the food we eat. land owners of kennerdell, you should encourage pooping in the woods to keep all of the trees growing. it is best to crap on an atv trail, in this way it will be spread around by the knobby tires of the atv. insuring an even tree growth. so for all the landowners with crapaphobia, relax. poop is a good thing. farmers for years have put crap on their fields to grow the vegetables that we eat.

Posted by: Wilson Park Native Reintroduction    Time/date: 9/4/2007 7:59:36 AM
I’ve understand that Wilson Park is instituting a “ Native Reintroduction “ initiative in attempt to keep the Coyote, Possum and Porcupine populations in check in the surrounding forest. Well, it was Saturday night that I came upon one such native and a white female Zombie who appeared to be hunting, after midnight, on the southern edge of the Kennerdell Peninsula, however, if they were hunting, they will definitely need to be provided with better tools for hunting and gathering of berries and other meats. The closest thing that resembled any type of weapon was one of those “ Afro-Picks “ that was in his hair, a can of Colt 45 Malt Liquor in one hand and a cell phone that the native hunter was using as a flashlight to light his way down the trail in the pitch-dark.

How many natives have been reintroduced into the Wilson Park jungle, so far, and is there a plan in place to equip them with the required knives, bows, arrows & spears such that they can become effective hunters? Do we have any idea as to their migratory pattern and if they are reproducing naturally in the forest? Rumor has it that they are equipped with brand new vehicles that they are using as a means of migration to the east, however, a map of the trail system should become standard equipment which is issued by their “ outfitters “. As my travels continued, I noted a disabled vehicle that had slid down the mountain-side in a very inaccessible area. My guess is the vehicle will be there for years to come and will certainly underscore the importance of a good map

If there is anyone aware of the details behind the “ Reintroduction Program “, please let us all know such that we’re all informed as to what’s going on. THANKS!!

Wow, now this is some serious crap were talking about here. I think if someone "Landowners" were to contact ATV Traction's Venango Chapter you just might be able to get some help to clean up between Summit city road and the Kennerdell Bridge. ATV Traction cleans the road between 308 and the Summit city road twice yearly. Spring and fall. I am looking for a small piece of land myself up along the road, nothing fancy just a lot someplace to leave it as it is and just to camp on once in a while when I come up to go fishing. If any of you Land owners along the road where all the junk is would like to have a good neighbor once in a while that likes nature as it was intended drop me a line. Now lets hope we can all get this crap and oh yes, the poop :O) cleaned up. and by the way I think I would rather see a fat lady parking herself over a log than some creep throwing there garbage over the lookout where many have devoted much time to keep your area pristine and natural.

Response to Scat Scanner:
Multiple land owner's property is involved, some of which is owned by Charlie Myers. Most affected property is owned by the big guy on top the hill near Rt 308, back the lane next to the broken down barn...he's got about 900 acres which boarders Scrub Grass Creek and the Kennerdell Road. The perpetual yard sale is owned by Tom Burke's widow who lives in Florida and couldn't give a crap whose pooping or trashing her land. Jim Hager, Kennerdell's village idiot, is the gay who was hired by Tom Burke's widow to clean-up the property to get it ready to sell...GREAT JOB JIM! This loser took what he wanted and threw the rest into the front yard like a Pig. This guy lives on North Tunnel Road and is about to be foreclosed upon. If you drive down North Tunnel Road, I'll bet you can easily pick out his current " hovel ", so, take a drive by and you’ll see what you’re dealing with.

As a final note, if you think it's bad now, just wait and see the mess that will be piled up along the road after this holiday weekend. Someone needs to block off every entrance to every campsite along the Kennerdell Road Southwest of the bridge. I see that the guy who bought the swimming hole has already attempted to block off his area, but, they've already cut a new trail to get back in. Tough problems require decisive action and what's going on over there certainly falls into this category.

Pig Hunter, Do you know who owns the land where all this poop and garbage gets deposited? Who owns the "yard sale" dump? Are there any zoning laws or township ordinances in Rockland? Broken down homes and trailers have become a problem all over the Kennerdell area. It's time to put an end to it.

Poop Patroler, Some of us enjoy seeing a big naked female ass along the local roads. It sure is better than turds and garbage. Also, the west-side(actually, it's the south side) problems can't be dumped on one family that generously volunteered to pick up litter. The area needs a major enema that will require the whole community. Can someone ask the firehall to post a clean-up day on their sign by the bridge?

Sick of Poopers, An outhouse is a start if it's a legal one and gets serviced. Maybe the landowner visits here. S of P's, What did the township say when you called?

Helpthyself, Bingo! You "get it".

To all, This board has become a place for people to annonamously BITCH and take shots at each other. Get off your pooper and at least make a phone call or shoot an e-mail off. We're in this together.

Posted by: helpthyself    Time/date: 8/29/2007 7:28:13 PM
Why's it the Bennetts problem? You people pay taxes don't you? Make arrangements with the State, County , Township or whoever to supply the trucks and have a clean up day (along with the Bennetts). That way you show up or shut up!

How about that nice outhouse someone put up down there at the creek? Now that is really classy.They may not have all their teeth but by gollie they got themselves a pooper.Maybe if we call the township they can do something about all that mess along the road(fallen down structures)We all need to start compaining.Maybe we will get something done about it.

I was coming home from work the other day down the Kennerdell Road west of the bridge and saw a sight that disgusted me. As I was coming around the bend in the Bruce & Brad Bennett Adopt-a-Highway section, going very slowly, looking for river fowl. Low and behold, I saw a big, fat, naked, female ass squatted over, holding herself up by a tree…..the tree was under stress and about to break….. and she was taking ( actually leaving ) “ a dump “ about 10 feet off the highway. From the back side, she looked like she was a cow getting prepared for artificial insemination and it was about the foulest thing I ever did see. Quite frankly, I’d rather inseminate a cow than risk getting my elbow stuck up inside THAT 6” long x 4” wide gash. If I’d have had my camera, I would have zoomed out as far as I could such that I could get that BIG THANG into the view-finder, but, unfortunately, all I have is the memory……..my camera was at home! In any event, it was quite a sight, so, KEEP YOUR EYES PEELED and you may just catch sight of something that will stick with and change you for the rest of your life… Certainly, in my book...this qualified as one of the 8 wonders of Kennerdell. I simply stepped on the gas before I caught sight up what was soon the follow...if you know what I mean!
What is wrong with the Bruce & Brad Bennett Family that they have allowed their section of roadway to get so bad? If they can’t handle the job they’d committed to do, then they need to give it up to an organization that’s prepared to get it under control. I represent ATVtraction and we’ve been assigned the section of roadway to the west of “ The Bennet Family “. We are willing to take over the Bennett’s responsibilities immediately given the fact they’ve fallen asleep at the wheel and have allowed the “ trashing “ of one of the most beautiful stretches of roadway leading into Kennerdell. Get with it Bennetts…….GET WITH IT !!

What the heck is going on west of the Kennerdell Bridge? Between the littered yards, the broken down homes & trailers and the garbage all along the roadside, I'm getting the impression that the community is being invaded by unemployeed / under-employed slobs who have absolutely no respect for themselves or our community. The saddest thing is that these squatter-campers who are pooping all over the ground don't even own the land.
I popped in to one of these campsites and asked these tattoo'd, pierced-up " winners " if they even knew who owned the land...the response went something like this...DUH...doughno...taught dis was open for everyone da use. Then, when I asked if they thought there was some weekly garbage clean-up team who is responsible for cleaning up their weekly mess...the response went something like this...DUH...taughtso...every week we come back the mess is always cleaned up...what day does da garbage man come?
Words of wisdom...get these toothless hags and their losing entourage off of your property, put up gates and / or block their entry onto your property, PERMANENTLY. The key to Kennerdell resident's future success is keeping the real estate values moving upward and I can assure you that what I see taking place on the western side of the Kennerdell bridge is not viewed as " an attraction "...you have got to keep these losers out of Kennerdell!

Thanks Curious...I think a serious inquiry deserves a reasonable response. I get a kick out of the " tangents " that some of these posters bring to the party. I can tell you one thing...that cabin that's for sale thru McDufus on top of the quarry will not be around a long time. High walls tend to creep, erode and undermine structures. Further, the junk that you see on the top side of " Marlowe's Mud Hole " will be there for the rest of your life. If your inquiry was based upon some interest you may have in that structure...I would avoid it " like the plague ".

To Curious About Quarry:
Mr. Paul Marlowe has not met the federal guidelines for reclaimation of a mine / quarry and he is in jeopardy of being held liable in the event of an accident. It is against the law to leave a " high wall ", and when his business went " belly up "...he was obligated to grade it down such that it is not a hazard or a future source of errosion.

If we worried about everything being safe, we would all live in a Bubble!

ATVing is inherantly dangerous, each rider young or old understands this... infact many of us, live/ride for some degree of danger, it is what makes this sort of recreation, FUN!

If we rode on 100% safe trails, it would not be FUN any longer!

You might as well, pull up your Rockin Chair and go to sleep when trails become 100% safe!

Yes the "railstotrails" project embroiled many folks for their actions and procedures.

I and many others think that the "railstotrails" project is a big waste of taxpayers funds.

Yes, it targets a niche market but not ALL. The "railstotrails" project is not unlike other governmental entities, they and their counterparts need to be at the very least, less restrictive and more conducive to ALL parts of society.

It's kind of a bummer to go to camp and not be able to hang out bythe water. If anyone in Brandon actually allows people to "tresspass" on their beach, can you let me know soon? We'll be up there this weekend probably. Thanks!

I just can not beleive how disrespectful some people are.I can understand that this is your camp. and you come here to have a good time. That is all fine and dandy ,drink as much as you want and have all the fun you can have, but cant you tone it down after 11 oclock? Closing our windows on a hot summer night is not fun for us, listening to your loud music until 1 oclock am is not fun either.We live here along with others that live here.We are not always off on the weekends ,when you have to get up early after being kept up all night it is not what I call a fun weekend.Why cant you come up here and have fun and show a little respect for others?Why do you have to scream at the top of your lungs? I bet they can hear you on the other mountain. I do not want to make enimies here, I show you respect so can you please do the same?

Thanks to the efforts of Scott Vogel & ATVtraction's Venango County Chapter, the Kennerdell and Seneca Hemlock Roads are again " litter free ". A quick " touch-up " was also done at the Kennerdell Look-Out, which is now ready for the Summer Season. All in all, about 8 miles of roadway has been cleaned up. For the record, neither ATVtraction nor Misty Ridge is responsible for the 2 mile streatch immediately west of the Kennerdell Bridge...so, don't blame us for that mess and the Burke Pig Sty that you'll come across as you traverse that section of road-way. I find it amazing that certain residents who are responsible for that mess can still hold their heads high in the community, yet, at the same time create an abomination which casts a MAJOR negative " first impression " on this beautiful place we've all come to enjoy.
I recently had a conversation with one of the Township Supervisors who has initiated some legal action against these persons in order to get it cleaned up...I wish them luck in their efforts!
I also noticed that some ambitious volunteers took on the clean-up along the Coal City Road...congratulations to you and I'm sure I speak on everyone's behalf when offering thanks for your actions and community involvement. Isn't it amazing what major impact a few hours of work can have at improving the local environment? Another great example of " Think Globally - Act Locally ". Thanks guys from everyone in Kennerdell!!

Saturday April 21st is Highway clean up day. ATV Traction will be cleaning up Kennerdell road From 308 down to the closed bridge, then will proceed to the kennerdell side and help Scott S. with the cleanup from the Kennerdell bridge up over the top past Misty ridge over to the trail head off of Seneca Hemlock Road.

Any one that would like to come out and see what we are about and meet a few of the membership, please come on out. I think it would be a great way to meet a few of the people in your community. I do apoligize that I will not be able to make this date as I will be out of State on a previous engagement. Scott Vogel Venango Chapter President and a nice crew from ATV Traction wil be there to say hello.
Watch out for the Highway cleanup crew :O)

Hey Goober, I commend you on your fine words for the residents of Wilson Park and the ATV Issue. you are so correct about respecting the non rider. I wish there was more we could do for your community, everyone I have met over the years have been more than kind to me and the riders that were with me.

We all know that there is a bad egg in every sport and these eggs need to be singled out. several times I have been thru the Wilson park area and have noticed young kids with Atv,s doing donuts and tearing up the area around the shelter. I have stopped and watched them and noticed none had plates or registration on their machines and wondered if their parents new what they were up to.

Why would the parents of these children let them destroy the grass area around the pavilion when they themselves have worked so hard to maintain the beauty and quality of the area. We need to get the word out that under Pa's new laws that all riders under the age of 15 must have a youth training certificate from the DCNR or the ASI to ride off ones own land. The Law also states that all ATV's must be registered and Insured in Pa. Insurance is not necessary if your atv is ridden on your land but still must be registered.

The shame of the whole issue is these parents are setting themselves up for a fine by not obeying the law.

One thing for sure is there are many fine people in the Wilson park and Kennerdell area! I know, I have met many of them.
Please ride safe and above all respect other people's rights everyone has the right to enjoy what they do whether it be indoors or out but please be courteous and respectful.

Chriscraft - Thanks for your kind words; they are truly appreciated! I thinks it's a darn shame that no one has responded, because Kennerdell has a VERY interesing history. If you really want to get a pretty good rundown on what I've learned over the past 16 years, I'd be happy to speak with you over the phone. I sit in front of computers all day M-F and I hate them with a passion. I'd rather talk over the phone and I know you have my number. Best Regards to You !

Thank you so much for your words to the community, yes, maybe I should have given my phone # and that would have sparked a responce, probably not though. Look at it this way, if any of the "local-yocals" had any interest in my original post they could have very easily mentioned, " hey, here is my #, call me about your ?'s". Sounds to me that there isnt many up there that have any concern about their towns history when an outsider is concerned enough about items in their town that might have interest to a history buff. I guess I had written that responce just to see if anyone was awake there, sounds like I woke up the sleeping dog, heehee. Again, Scott, thank you for calming things down, sounds like you are the only civilized person there, wish there was more like you.

I’d love to respond to every inquiry that comes across this board where I have something to add, but I simply don’t have the time to be writing one epistle after another. Although I agree that Chriscraft deserves a better response than what he’d gotten, bottom line, he may have gotten a better response had he provided a phone number. I would be delighted to provide all the details that I know, but when a gentleman writes a 2 minute post that requires an hours worth of time to respond, I have look at the “ value analysis “ and make the correct decision. Chris…I have some of the history, so, if you’re truly interested, feel free to give me a call. 724-981-5444 x-317 ( 7A-4P ) or 814-498-2070 ( after 5P ).

Just for the record, I’m from Chicago, so my knowledge on the subject will be somewhat limited, although still better than most. It’s too bad that one of the ole' local-yokels won’t take the time out of their “ busy “ days to respond. It's pretty sad when the history of the Kennerdell tunnel has to come from someone from Chicago. Please don’t shoot me…I’m only the “ enabler “.

Posted by: valley girl    Time/date: 3/2/2007 2:32:22 PM
Can I just say one thing? Looking over the page I see that " Chriscraft posted a message about the tunnels and no responce from any of you "locals" could even help her or him out but yet let them reply to you guys as they did and the whole town jumps on them. Sounds to me maybe you guys dont even know about where you live or anything about it's history. Ohhhh, one more thing, I didnt check the spelllling before I sent this. LOL

I really get a kick out of this community page!!...What a hoot! But, given the fact that my spelling is sometimes not the best either, I find that I can make myself look a little less " hickish " if I draft my posts in MS Word and then,...after a spell-check, do a " cut & paste " into the Community Page posting window. These posts also have a strict limit of 2000 characters ( including spaces ), so, you can also use the " Word Count “ feature which is found under the " tool " section in MS Word. This will save you a big hassle of re-editing after the post has been rejected for being too “ wordy “.

If you follow these couple of tips…your future postings will make you APPEAR to be an unbridled genius…LOL

recently discovering KennerdELL, beautiful place you guys have there, I am from Kittanning and never been to KennerdELL until the first of this year. I am an old railroad tunnel buff I guess you would call it. I explored the kennerdELL and Rockton (Its not Rockton, (its ROCKLAND) tunnels, I noticed the ROCKLAND tunnel has a headstone <<< (I believe these are not headstones, headstones are at the head of a grave, what you saw at the top of the archway is a KEYSTONE…KEYSTONE: the wedge-shaped piece at the crown of an arch that locks the other pieces in place) of 1915, I didn’t <<<(DIDN’T) see one for the KennerdELL tunnel. Does anyone know if there is any historic records <<<(THOSE) tunnels when they were built, how long it took to build them. I realize that back then it was a nessesity <<<(NECESSITY) more than documenting them for someone to look back on 100 years later. I am just amazed at how 100 years ago something like that could be built, back before GPS's, and electric lights and deisel <<<{DIESEL) engines. If anyone has any leads or any information on this I would really appreciate <<<(APPRECIATE). Thank you very much, OH, by the way, you guys really have a wonderful community up there, something to be proud of. Thanks again.

Scott – You have an unstable man who claimed to live across the street from you; I’m told by folks in Kennerdell that he’s known as Jumbo-Crack-Jack. It appeared he was having some kind of a psychotic episode this past Sunday afternoon and I saw that the Pennsylvania State Police were involved and were having a difficult time getting him sedated. I saw him on your side of the highway and it appeared he was snooping through your ditch. There was also some other incident that Jumbo was involved in on the south side of the road, as well…close to the cut-off to the Kennerdell Overlook. I’m not sure what was going on while you were out, however, I thought you should be aware of it.

I would almost be willing to make a bet on who you are, I do not care to divulge your name nor will I. I feel that if you want anyone to know who you are that is up to you and not for me to make the decision. I did in no way intend to make you feel embarrased about your anonymity.
I have always felt that when posts are made the readers should know who the person behind the post is. everyone needs to learn to be more honest and more upfront about there feelings. the world will be better for all if this were the case.
seems we all hear the story of who done what but it always comes thru the grapevine in the same method, someone always hides behind there "secret name" .
I sure miss the good ol'e days when you new your neighbor and everyone was welcome to your house and there were no conditions, it was pure friendship and love for your neighbor.
I remember when I was a child and asked my father one time why there was an X carved on our front steps, he explained to me that this is where a traveler or "Hobo" I guess they called them could get a free meal if they were hungry while traveling thru our neighbor hood. since we lived very close to the railroad yards in Conway pa. when I was a young boy many strangers visited our back porch for a meal and I can't ever remember my father turning one away.
The traveler before them carved the X and my parents always made sure there was enough to feed the stranger when they knocked on the door. The X was still there until they tore down the house about 20 years ago but my father was long gone before that.

As always ATV Traction is here to help our friends in the Kennerdell area. Just let us know what we can do to help.

Thanks Ray ! Just as an FYI to all members and friends, I spoke with Brian Mills ( ATVtraction President ) about 2 weeks back and he has graciously agreed to assist us, monetarily, in our legal defense of re-opening our right-of-way that we’d incorporated into our Misty Ridge - Phase I sub-division . You may not be aware, but Jack Walker and Linda Walker ( 2760 Kennerdell Road ) have taken it upon themselves to illegally block-off our legal easement with a very dangerous elevator cable that’s strung at neck-level. Although they did mark the cable with fluorescent ribbon, there’s a lot of fog that we deal with on top of the peninsula that obscures its view. It’s just a matter of time before someone winds up decapitated. BE VERY CAREFUL UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
As of January 17th, the Herbster / Walker clan has been granted a grace-period of exactly 15 days to remove all the blockades. If they do not comply, an injunction will be issued and a lawsuit launched; from this point, we will no longer compromise; there will be a permanent redirection of trails south of the Kennerdell road. Scott Vogel, Venango County Chapter President took the time from his busy schedule to attend the preliminary meeting with my attorney, so, he is up-to-date on all the issues. I would like to provide you and Brian with copies of all the pertinent written facts, however, I need a fax number. Given the funding your group has committed, I feel it’s fair that you have copies of the documentation which clearly shows our intent and timeline. We will post all pertinent documentation on our website such that everyone in the community is also aware of the facts…postings coming very soon !
We’ve had a lot of folks inquire as to “ why WE blocked off the trail “. WE did not take this action, but WE are taking the necessary actions to reverse it. The location of the revised Right-of-Way will make more sense and we’re looking forward to the improvement.
Scott S.

I being one not ashamed of my name and you knowing who I am I just wanted to let you know it was nice of you (WRATHE)to apoligize to Pastor Bobbie. It may also interest you to know that she and Her family are members of ATV Traction Inc.

I wish that someday maybe after one of her Church services she will be able to meet up to attend one of our meetings and attend a ride with many great members of Venango County Atv Traction.

I wish to thank all the gracious Land owners that let ATV Traction enter upon their lands. with out you, we would have nothing! it would be nice to let all of you know that the trails we use we maintain and indeed respect our gracious landowners.

Message to "WRATHE" - I have no idea who you are and you have no idea who I am, but, for whatever it's worth, I'd like to thank you for your posts and your involvement in trying to help manage the fragile situation that exists between good ATVers, bad ATVers and landowners in Kennerdell. We have a very good thing going here in Kennerdell and we cannot let it slip away; it makes Kennerdell what it is and has been the biggest driver to quality growth in the community. The improvements we've all seen over the past few years have come as a direct result of folks like you who are vocal, authoritative, "take-charge" and definitive as to your group's expectations of other's conduct, and, without people like you (and me), it would all fall apart and we could certainly lose access to the vast openness that draws all of us here.

I know it's easy to be abrupt and quick-fingered, sometimes, when responding to various posts that appears on this page from time to time, however, it all boils down to the intent of the actions and writings. I'm glad there are others, like you, helping to preserve the sport, define the expectations and to identify and quarantine the bad apples; there are not that many of them and we now know who most of them are. We are doing the same and we have always had excellent support from ALL associated landowners. They are appreciative of our presence and involvement. KEEP IT UP, MY FRIEND and let's keep this good thing going!! Spring is coming and it's ALMOST time to ride and have some fun!

Final note...I think you ought to get together with Pastor Bobbie and show her around the area via ATV. I'm sure there are many beautiful nooks and crannies that she might be interested in learning how to get to. I've never met the gal, myself, but she sounds like the kind of girl who deserves a key to the community.

recently discovering Kennerdale, beautiful place you guys have there, I am from Kittanning and never been to Kennerdale until the first of this year. I am an old railroad tunnel buff I guess you would call it. I explored the kennerdale and Rockton tunnels, I noticed the Rockton tunnel has a headstone of 1915, I didnt see one for the Kennerdale tunnel. Does anyone know if there is any historic records of theose tunnels when they were built, how long it took to build them. I realize that back then it was a nessesity more than documenting them for someone to look back on 100 years later. I am just amazed at how 100 years ago something like that could be built, back before GPS's, and electric lights and deisel engines. If anyone has any leads or any information on this I would really appriciate. Thank you very much, OH, by the way, you guys really have a wonderful community up there, something to be proud of. Thanks again.

I am so sorry someone took offense at what I wrote! It was my intention to just share a positive side to what I see as hurt between residents who seem to be at odds with one another. I love ATV's; I own one! Blessings to you all, Pastor Bobbie

Wrathe: It sounds like you have a chip on your shoulder ! Pastor Bobbie loves this area and is an ATV buff herself -- I think you should go back to manner school. Rethink what you said and give the nice woman an apology -- if you are man enough. At least she is trying to bring some postive comments to the community.

This message is to "Pastor Bobbie"

So by you saying that we live in a beautiful and blessed place, are you and your sybling inferring that the ATV is a Ugly and Damned thing?

If so, you are being Judgemental, and Sins of the Teacher can only produce Sins of thier followers!

After reading some of the mail on this page, I just wanted to say, our son recently returned from Iraq and was here for Christmas. He was in awe of the beauty of this area and told us how blessed we all are to live in such a great place. Please don't take it for granted! We are free to make good choices so can we choose to work together and keep Kennerdell beautiful and blessed? Happy New Year-2007!!

Hey y'all

Did you ever think to maybe get some volunteer help from Clubs or Organizations such as ATV Traction...I am sure if you put your heads together and stop all of your whining and common complaining, you can get many of those pesky potholes repaired, in a New York Minute & by a Country Mile!

See the way I see it, most WP Residents complain about the ATV Riders and so forth, but if you would come to a Tracttion Meeting from time to time and if you ask us for some help, I am sure that you can and will find that Us ATV'ers are not all bad.

Traction's Chapters are always seeking ways to try and shed some of the negative light, that others create for us...Think about it, formulate a plan, and take it up with your local Chapter. In reference from the an above statement, if Traction and equal Members of WP come together for a common goal, many things can be accomplished.

We have proved it, time and time again...and WP can too!

We are wp residents. Every year we {my husband and children and myself} get out there with our shovels and fill in potholes ,dig out the ditches and plow the roads. Some of you just drive by and wave. How nice of you. And how dare you complain about the roads when not one of you will lift a finger to help. you sure do use your fingers to type up a complaint on here though. Filling in potholes does not cost a dime and it sure does help. If we all would fill in 1 or 2 the road would be better, not perfect but definitly better.One person can not do it all themselves.Lets get together and plan a work day. we could accompish alot and maybe have a little fun doing it.Maybe we could have a Wilson Park Yard sale and use the money for materials.

Cherry popped this: " both Long-Road and Short-Road feel their real estate values would improve, but neither feels any obligation to pay there fair share to make it happen!"

They must be Democrats!

I think public transportation should be available for WP camp owners and guests to get to Walmart. I think this should be free also. Raise the rich peoples taxes! Maybe I'm a Democrat?

Humorous reading the posts concerning Wilson Park Interstate System…LOL! Basically, we have 2 opposing views on road usage, but, one common conclusion… both Long-Road and Short-Road feel their real estate values would improve, but neither feels any obligation to pay there fair share to make it happen! Well, here’s my 2 cents. I like the country-life and the Wilson Park Interstate System serves my purpose just fine. I got a 4 WD PU truck, have a property that’s about ½ way into the park, I do come up pretty regularly, but, I enjoy the peace & quiet of winter once the ATV idiots have gone into hibernation AND, I don’t care about the condition of the highway. Annually, I do some basic road maintenance in front of my place, but there is no stone left on the road, so, my idea of annual maintenance is throwing a few shovels of mud into my hole and dropping a big rock right on top of it just like a Cherry on a sundae. This approach works great for me…good to go for another year! As far as paying for YOUR improvements, I will not spend one thin dime on the roadway, so, please spend my 2 cents wisely…it’s all you’ll be getting.

I like the roads it keeps people out. Lets LEAVE THE ROADS ALONE.

We have a camp, which is in upper WP and we have about the longest, bumpiest ride back to our place that anyone could possibly imagine. I’d like to see the road improved because I also believe it would improve our property values, but I don’t think it’s fair that I should have to pay the same amount as those who visit the area frequently. We only use our camp 1 or 2 times per year, and even though we use more of the roadway to get to our camp, the number of miles we actually drive on it over the course of a year would be significantly less than those who live near the entrance, but use their property most every weekend.

I have a camp which is very close to the entry of Wilson Park and, although I would like to see the road improved in hopes that it would improve value of my property, I do not feel as though I should have to pay the same amount as those who live at the end of the road, due to the fact that I use a lot less of it. We spend as many weekends as we can in Wilson Park and really love the area, but the road is a major negative for our community.

Posted by: Mr. Pot-Hole    Time/date: 11/30/2006 8:54:35 AM
I would be happy to fix the road! Please let me know the specific areas where you'd like to see improvement and the budget you have to work with. WP has needed road improvements for decades and it is not going to be cheap. Do you have any funds in your road fund? The last time I'd inquired as to the financial viability of the WP road fund, I was told they were approaching the $20 level. I'm figuring this will take care of 1 mid-sized pot-hole. Do you have a specific pot-hole in mind once we get started?

NO! Some idiot down there likes the road bumpy. Go figure.

Can someone please assign me an IQ number? God tells me that Darwin may be on to something. The stupid ones don't survive long with ATV's, alcohol, & dope weeding them out of the gene pool.
