Margaret A. "Peg" Dennis, 96, formerly of Canfield Hollow Road, Eldred, PA

Margaret A. "Peg" Dennis, 96, formerly of Canfield Hollow Road, Eldred, PA, went to her eternal home while residing at Sena-Kean Manor, Smethport, on Sunday (July 27, 2014) following a brief illness.

Margaret was born on Sept. 21, 1917, to Willard and Margaret McCord Crone. On April 2, 1933, in Port Allegany, she married Richard Dennis, who passed away on July 16, 1987.

Margaret was a homemaker and a seamstress. She was admired by many. She was admired for her grace, dignity, joyful attitude, faith and strength during difficult times. Her many gifts included sewing, quilting and crocheting. She raised a large family and was adored by her children and grandchildren. It has been said that her faith was passed down through generations. Though many might say 96 years was a long time to live, for Margaret it wasn't enough. Many will continue to benefit from the blessings she provided. Her pleasant smile and kind spirit held true until the end and has been passed on to those she held dear.

Peg was a dedicated member of the Eldred United Methodist Church, where she was a past member of the choir, circle no. 3, and had been active in various other church activities.

Margaret is survived by her son, Donald (Joyce) Dennis of Shinglehouse; three daughters, Kathryn Schwab of Duke Center, Margie Gruber of Rocklin, Calif., and Dorothy (James) Brown of Virginia Beach, Va.; 12 grandchildren; 25 great-grandchildren; 29 great-great-grandchildren; and four great-great grandchildren due in the near future. She has left quite a legacy.

In addition to her husband and parents, Margaret was preceded in death by a son, Joel Dennis; daughters, Mary Louise Dennis and Marcia Dennis; a granddaughter, Anne Schwab Rogers; and a brother, Mark Crone.

Friends may call from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. today at the Frame Funeral Home. A funeral service will be held on Wednesday at the Eldred United Methodist Church at 11 a.m. with the Rev. Gary Sheesley and the Rev. Donald Henderson, co-officiating. Burial will follow in McKean Memorial Park, Lafayette.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorials be made to Hamlin Bank to benefit Trystan Dennis under the name of Larry Dennis Jr.; or to a
charity of the donor's choice.

Trystan is Peg's 11-year-old great-great-grandson, who is currently battling leukemia.

Fish And Boat Commission Urges EPA Help On Susquehanna River

Fish and Boat Commission Urges
EPA Help on Susquehanna River
 
HARRISBURG, Pa. (July 29) – The Executive Director of the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) is calling on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to help identify the factors contributing to the poor health of the Susquehanna River and begin taking steps to improve the river’s condition “before it becomes too late to repair the damage.”
 
In a July 28 letter to EPA Administrator Shawn Garvin, Executive Director John Arway said the agency supports the EPA’s recent decision to increase oversight of pollutants from the agricultural sector in Pennsylvania’s portion of the Chesapeake Bay, but said more needs to be done.
 
“While large strides have been made in other sectors, the agricultural sector has been more complicated to understand and subsequently account for in regulatory improvements,” Arway said. “Further investigation into the agricultural contribution will be challenging but one that is much needed and long overdue.”
 
In particular, Arway urged the EPA to establish thresholds for reducing the amount of dissolved phosphorus, which he said is “plaguing the water quality” of the Susquehanna River and the Chesapeake Bay.
 
“While target parameters such as total nitrogen and total phosphorus are important in estuarine management, I strongly recommend that EPA’s upcoming focus include targets specifically for the Susquehanna River, a riverine environment that’s the bay’s largest tributary,” he said. “These would include the dissolved components of phosphorus which are fueling algal blooms and increased productivity in the Susquehanna River and its tributaries creating the primary stressor that cause young bass immune systems to be stressed, the fish to become weakened, then become infected with bacteria and die.”
 
Arway said that specific recommendations which would have far-reaching impacts to improve the Susquehanna if enacted statewide include:
  • Avoid agricultural applications of phosphorus in the autumn.
  • Reduce the phosphorus load delivered during the spring period (March 1 to June 30).
  • Increase the scale and intensity of agricultural Best Management Practices (BMP) programs that have been shown to reduce phosphorus runoff. 
  • Strengthen and increase the use of regulatory mechanisms of conservation farm planning to reduce nutrient loadings.
  • Accelerate 4Rs (Right source, Right rate, Right time and Right place) outreach/extension programs and phase in mandatory certification  standards for agrology advisors, retailers and applicators to ensure fertilizer is applied based on the 4Rs. 
  • Ban the application of manure, biosolids and commercial fertilizers containing phosphorus from agricultural operations on frozen ground or ground covered by snow.
  • Work with local governments to promote and accelerate use of green infrastructure (such as filter strips, rain gardens, bio-swales and engineered wetlands).
  • Prohibit the sale and use of phosphorus fertilizers for lawn care. 
A complete copy of Executive Director Arway’s letter to the EPA is available on the PFBC website.
 
More information about the Susquehanna River impairment is also available on the website.

7th Year To Fill A Backpack

As we head in to our 7th year of collecting school supplies and filling backpacks for children in need we would like to Thank everyone for their continued support…we could never keep going without the continued support of our local communities.

In 2008 when we started the program we honestly never thought that it would continue to grow as much as it has. When the program started we were distributing in 3 towns and have now grown to 6 different counties including Cameron, McKean, Tioga, Lycoming, Bradford and Potter and well over 40 different towns. As the need continues to grow our organization will as well.

At this time our main objective is to raise money to be able to purchase backpacks for the 2014 distribution year. Due to the cost we have minimal backpacks donated. We work closely with a wholesaler that offers us free shipping due to the size of our orders. We continue to look for the best pricing available to help make our funds go farther each year. Our order for backpack’s this year consisted of 1,020 backpacks for a total cost of over $7,300 which has pretty much depleted our backup funds. We are hoping to bring in additional funds by continuing to do our fundraisers including the 12 Days of Christmas Raffle beginning in October.

Please remember that we are a 501©3 organization which means that any donation made to the To Fill A Backpack program is deductible on your following years taxes. We will gladly issue a receipt for any donation made.

We are headed in to this collection year full bore in hopes of expanding even farther. We are still working on the Kane and Mt. Jewett areas.

Our current drop off locations are Perry’s Store – Austin, Coudersport Public Library & KOS, Inc. – Coudersport, Main Street Fitness – Eldred, Copy Katz & Endeavor News - Emporium , Galeton Public Library – Galeton, Genesee Township Office - Genesee, PA, Creative Cuts, Gold Mountain, Knoxville Post Office & Prime PC – Knoxville, HMAC & Northwest Bank – Lawrenceville, First Citizens Community Bank

If anyone would like to make a monetary donation they can send a check, money order or cash to To Fill A Backpack - Attn: Donations - 81 Burleson Avenue - Roulette, PA 16746. You can also make a donation with a credit card by going to www.tofillabackpack.org and click on the "Make A Donation By Credit Card" at the bottom of the screen.

State Senate Votes To Reform Pensions / Bill Awaits House Approval

Scarnati: State Senate Works Toward Pension Reform

HARRISBURG – The State Senate has recently passed bi-partisan legislation to begin reforming Pennsylvania’s pension system by moving members of the General Assembly and other statewide elected officials to a defined contribution plan, according to Senator Joe Scarnati (R-25).

Scarnati explained that last month the Senate unanimously passed Senate Bill 922, which takes an important first step to move all elected officials, including members of the General Assembly, out of a defined benefit public pension plan to remove this financial burden from taxpayers.

“Reforming public pension benefits is an important goal that Senate Republicans have been engaged in throughout the current legislative session,” Scarnati said. “Leading by example is what Pennsylvania residents expect and deserve from their elected officials.”

The amended version of Senate Bill 922, which was approved in a historic vote by the full Senate, would remove members of the Senate and House of Representatives as well as the judiciary from the current defined benefit pension plan. The bill would create a defined contribution plan similar to a 401(k) plan for legislators, the Governor, the Attorney General, the Auditor General, and Treasurer upon re-election, as well as the judiciary upon retention.

“Recently the governor has been traveling across our Commonwealth to speak with Pennsylvania residents about the need for pension reform,” Scarnati stated. “I appreciate that the governor shares our concern for the long-term sustainability of our Commonwealth’s pension systems, and look forward to sitting down with him to proactively work as a team to solve this problem.”

Scarnati noted that Members of the Senate decided to change their own pensions first, before asking others to make changes to their plans. If changes are to be made to the retirement system for state employees, then those that vote for those changes should be held to the same standard.

“This issue did not arise overnight and requires that we work together to enact responsible pension reform in a strategic manner,” Scarnati said. “I am very pleased to work with my colleagues in the Senate to take the first steps to address the long-term sustainability of the state’s public employee pension systems.”

Senate Bill 922 is currently before the House Finance Committee.
