Austin School Super To Testify Before State Panel Thursday

Superintendent Jerry Sasala
Austin Area School District in rural Potter County is a poster child for the Pa. State Land Tax Fairness Coalition (new Coalition website here), with about 90 percent of its real estate tax-exempt due to state ownership. 

On Thursday, Jan. 29, Austin Area School Superintendent Jerry Sasala will testify about the inequities during an appearance before the Pennsylvania Basic Education Funding Commission in Greenville. It’s comprised of 12 Senators and Representatives, as well as the State Education Secretary, State Budget Secretary and State Deputy Secretary of Administration. 

The Potter County Commissioners are going to host a public viewing of this tomorrow at the Gunzburger Building on the big screen at 10 am. First room on the left inside the front door. 

The hearing can also be viewed live starting at 10 am on Thursday, Jan. 29, through the website here. Superintendent Sasala is scheduled to speak at about 11 am.


Superintendent Sasala is poised to advance the coalition’s mission to persuade the legislature to increase the in-lieu-of-taxes payments on state-owned land, and provide a cut of the revenue the state derives from gas/oil leases and timber sales for counties, school districts and municipalities. “Our school district is severely stressed by the high proportion of real estate that is owned by the state and is thus tax-exempt,” Sasala will tell the commission. “By law, school districts, municipalities and county governments depend on the real estate tax for the bulk of their necessary operating revenue. The system is unfair, since property owners face a burden that is clearly disproportional and unfair.”

2015-16 HUNTING/TRAPPING SEASONS RECEIVE PRELIMINARY APPROVAL

Final approval of seasons, antlerless license allocations, to occur in April.

The Pennsylvania Board of Game Commissioners today gave preliminary approval to hunting and trapping seasons and bag limits for the 2015-16 license year.

Modifications proposed for the 2015-16 seasons include: opening the bobwhite quail season in all but one of the state’s Wildlife Management Units; expanding the crow hunting season to include an additional weekend; decreasing the length of the fall turkey season in WMUs 2E, 3D, 4A, 4B and 4D to create a two-week fall season, plus a three-day Thanksgiving season; running the archery deer season from Sept. 19 through Nov. 28 in WMUs 2B, 5C and 5D; and implementing a conservative-harvest river otter season in WMUs 3C and 3D.

The public may offer comments on all proposed 2015-16 seasons and bag limits, as well as other board actions, between now and the board’s next meeting, April 9 and 10, at which time the board is scheduled to finalize seasons and bag limits for 2015-16.

Also, the board will receive at its April meeting staff recommendations for antlerless deer license allocations for each of the 23 WMUs. Deer harvest estimates for the 2014-15 seasons will be available in mid-March.

Following are several articles on meeting highlights.

ICE-O-RAMA SATURDAY JANUARY 31

The Friends of Lyman Run and Lyman Run State Park will be hosting ICE-O-RAMA at Lyman Run State Park on Saturday, January 31 from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm. A fun filled day of family oriented winter activities is planned including a look at the huge fin of the Giant Ice Shark of Lyman Lake (Lymanensis carnivorus). This legendary creature was thought to be extinct but evidence of its existence was discovered while the new Lyman Lake dam was being reconstructed. Want to know more about it? Then plan to attend this winterfest to learn where it came from and whether or not it still swims under the ice of the lake! Under water cameras will be looking for any evidence of the shark and anyone with a smartphone who downloads the FISH PHONE APP. from Vexilar (also available on itunes and Google Play) will be able to tune into the camera and take photos of what might show up. This app must be downloaded prior to coming to the park as there is no Wi-Fi available there. But the Bluetooth capability of your smartphone will allow you to “tune” into the camera’s live-streaming images.

Free tickets to this event have been passed out all month and will also be available at the State Park’s information trailer that will be parked at the dam spillway. Event Schedule and maps will also be available. At each venue participating kids can have their tickets punched and when full, can take them to the trailer for a free prize of an actual shark tooth (while supplies last). Activities for the day include: Downhill sledding (bring your own sled or saucer to zoom down this awesome hill!), clinics at various times of the day to teach cross country skiing (have skis? bring them along and get some “pointers” – some skis will be available), learn how to snowshoe (equipment provided), snowmobile rides through the Daggett campground provided by the God’s Country Black Forest Snowmobile Club, Family Ice fishing clinics (equipment provided) and of course, the Giant Ice Shark fin…do you dare to touch it?

The Friends of Lyman Run, a chapter of the Pennsylvania Parks and Forests Foundation, will be selling refreshments. Hot coffee and hot chocolate ($1.00 ) and several varieties of soup ($2.00) will be available at the park pavilion. Put on your long johns, scarves, hats and mittens…and come out and play in the snow with us!

Lyman Run State Park is located at 454 Lyman Run Road, Galeton, PA. lymanrunsp@pa.gov or (814) 435-5010. Friends of Lyman Run…LIKE us on Facebook!
