Out Of Plan Rates Coming For Highmark Members At UPMC Affiliated Hospitals??

Highmark members will likely pay more for UPMC access

By DAVID BRUCE, Erie Times-News
david.bruce@timesnews.com

State Sen. Don White now realizes western Pennsylvania's largest health system and its largest private health insurer simply can't get along.

More than three hours of testimony Thursday at Erie Insurance convinced the chairman of the Pennsylvania Senate Banking and Insurance Committee that the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center will not sign a provider contract with Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield. More...

GOT BRAKES???

More than 300 Commercial Vehicles Placed Out of Service
Pennsylvania State Police recently conducted a one-day, statewide inspection of commercial motor vehicles, finding enough violations to place more than one-quarter of the trucks out of service.

During "Operation Air Brake,'' state troopers, along with municipal police officers and members of the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission, inspected 1,444 commercial motor vehicles. A total of 317 vehicles and 60 drivers were placed out of service.

"As Pennsylvania's roadways become more crowded, it's important that everyone safely share the road and ensure that the equipment, especially brakes, are operating in excellent condition," State Police Commissioner Frank Noonan said. "We are committed to reducing the number of crashes that involve commercial motor vehicles by putting those that that are not safe out of service."

The enforcement effort, held across the state on Sept. 14, found at least one driver or vehicle safety deficiency in 67 percent of the inspections conducted. Officers issued 1,103 traffic citations and handed out 2,074 written warnings.

"Under ideal conditions, the braking capacity of trucks is twice as far as cars,'' Noonan said. "When large vehicles have brakes that are out of adjustment, it reduces their ability to stop. This increases the risk to other motorists on the road and the driver of the vehicle itself."

"Operation Air Brake" is part of a national Brake Safety Awareness Week campaign aimed at improving vehicle brake safety throughout North America. Officers conduct roadside inspections and educate drivers, mechanics and others on the importance of proper brake inspection, maintenance and operation.

Local State Police inspections:

Troop C (Clarion, Clearfield, Forest, Elk, Jefferson and McKean counties), 122 inspections; 25 vehicles out of service; two drivers out of service; 70 citations; 285 warnings.

Troop F (Cameron, Clinton, Lycoming, Montour, Northumberland, Potter, Snyder, Union and Tioga counties), 78 inspections; 16 vehicles out of service; five drivers out of service; 81 citations; 108 warnings.

NY Takes Drilling Rights To State Park In New Legislation

No Drilling in Allegany State Park

Don’t expect oil and gas drilling in Allegany State Park after all.

Governor Andrew Cuomo on Friday signed two pieces of legislation giving broad new protections against drilling in the park.

The legislation comes a couple years after U.S. Energy Development of Getzville, which has drilling operations in Western New York and Pennsylvania, said it had subsurface mineral rights in the park and wanted state approval to sink five test wells.

US Energy says it has claims on 2,800 acres in the Red House area of the park.

The two-bill package Cuomo signed says any oil and gas claim not actively used within the past 20 years shall be considered "extinguished" and the rights reverted to the state, and gives the state parks department powers over any effort to explore or drill within Allegany State Park.

Steelhead Fishing, Trout Stockings

Steelhead Fishing, Trout Stockings
and Family Fishing Programs Highlight Fall Fishing


Harrisburg, PA - Cooler weather may have arrived, but great fall fishing opportunities remain across the state for anglers and their families.

Battle wits with wild brook trout on a small mountain run or land a trophy rainbow trout from one of Pennsylvania’s well-stocked streams and lakes. Check the Fish and Boat Commission’s (PFBC) online stocking schedules for a complete list of fall stockings in your favorite county waters: http://pfbc.state.pa.us/pfbc_webgis/TroutStockingDetailsFall.aspx

Looking for a challenge? Head to Erie and its legendary steelhead fishing. The PFBC stocks more than a million juvenile steelhead each year and continually works on improving access to Lake Erie tributaries through property acquisitions and easements using angler funds acquired through the Erie permit and Erie/trout/salmon combo permit. For more information on steelhead fishing in Erie, including interactive maps showing popular locations, visit: http://www.fishandboat.com/steelhead.htm.

Want a great way to connect with your family? Discover just how much fun fishing can be when you do it together at a PFBC Family Fishing Program. Learn basic fishing skills like knot tying, casting, baiting the hook, and taking a fish off the hook. You and your family will have the opportunity to fish – no fishing license required. All equipment provided. Search the PFBC calendar for a list of Family Fishing Programs in your area: http://pfbc.state.pa.us/Calendar/Default.aspx.

“Fishing doesn’t end when the weather turns colder,” said Tim Schaeffer, director of the PFBC’s Bureau of Policy, Planning and Communications. “In fact, many anglers are just getting started with steelhead fishing in Erie and then ice fishing in the winter. Fishing is a year-round activity and contributes significantly to the state’s economy.”

Schaeffer noted that organizations across the country will recognize these economic contributions as part of National Hunting and Fishing Day, which is on Saturday, September 24, this year. In order to accommodate legislative schedules, PFBC representatives will take part in a National Hunting and Fishing Day celebration on Wednesday, Sept. 28, in the East Wing Rotunda of the State Capitol in Harrisburg.

“The event, which will feature a series of informational booths, will run from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m., and will include remarks by Executive Director John Arway,” added Schaeffer. “The event will highlight the importance of fishing and boating and the impact the agency has had on the state’s cultural heritage, recreational attributes and economy.”

“Mr. Arway will also describe the challenges of balancing the needs of anglers and boaters while responding to the increasing workload created by Marcellus shale development, and he will explain the benefits of being able to offer multi-year fishing licenses, which the PFBC would be permitted to offer under the pending Senate Bill 1049,” Schaeffer said.

Anglers and boaters can sign up to receive email updates on the activities of the Fish and Boat Commission at http://www.fishandboat.com/newsreleases/edelivery.htm. The PFBC is also using today’s popular social media. Individuals can stay in touch by following the Commission on Twitter at www.twitter.com/fishandboat.

Gajanan, Race to be honored by Pitt-Bradford alumni

GAJANAN, RACE TO BE HONORED BY PITT-BRADFORD ALUMNI

BRADFORD, Pa. – The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford Alumni Association will honor Dr. Shailendra Gajanan with its Teaching Excellence Award and Ryan Race ’07 as its Distinguished Volunteer as part of Alumni and Family Weekend.

Gajanan was nominated by Danielle Graves ’00, who was an economics minor at Pitt-Bradford, in large part due to Gajanan’s teachings.

“Economics can be a rather uninteresting subject for some,” she wrote in her nomination. “While attending classes with Dr. Gajanan, however, I never felt that he lost anyone’s attention. He used humor and really taught the subject on a level that related to all of the students, such as using examples with beer and pretzels.”

Mark Byrne ’98 also nominated Gajanan.

“As a former student, I can say, without hesitation, that Dr. Gajanan played a major role in my development at Pitt-Bradford. His intellect, subtle wit and keen sense of how to connect with students furthered my educational experience at Pitt-Bradford beyond what I imagined was possible.”

Gajanan has been teaching at Pitt-Bradford since 1992 and has conducted research on water issues and the spread of the chickungunya virus in his native Chennai, India. He has also researched the local economic impact of Pitt-Bradford and of a proposed four-lane expansion of U.S. Route 219. Currently he has teamed up with Jim Dombrosky, assistant professor of hospitality management, to study the Pennsylvania wine industry.

Past recipients include Dr. Vincent Kohler, Dr. Marvin Thomas, Dr. Michael Stuckart, Dr. Patricia Bianco, David Blackmore, Dr. Richard E. McDowell, Dr. Richard Frederick, Jeffrey Guterman, Lizbeth Matz, Isabelle Champlin, Dr. Gautam Mukerjee, Dr. Warren Fass, Don Lewicki, Dr. Helene Lawson and Dr. Stephen Robar.

Race was nominated by Lori Mazza, director of athletics, who cited his work to create the “Panther P” athletic logo used exclusively by Pitt-Bradford and his support of the athletics program.

“Ryan was instrumental in reviving our alumni basketball game,” Mazza said. “He was also a leader in this year’s athletic auction.”

She also mentioned Race’s steady support of the men’s basketball program, attending games and other events on campus.

“Ryan is always willing to help out Pitt-Bradford if he can,” Mazza said. “He has been an excellent representative of the university in Bradford through his work with Northwest Savings. He always mentions Pitt-Bradford fondly and truly represents an alumnus who loves his hometown, alma mater and job.”

Past recipients include Dennis Lowery ’63-’65, Susan Silvestri ’72-’74, Gregory Silvestri ’73-’75, Bill Krieg ’64-’66, David Higie ’74-’76, Sharon Knouse ’88, Sandra Macfarlane ’80-’82, Anita Dolan ’88, Tim Fannin ’78, Ward Garner ’89 and Craig Hartburg ’73-’75.

Both men will be honored at an awards brunch Oct. 1 that will also include Athletic Hall of Fame inductees Matt Barnes and Missy Wahlberg. Additionally, Pitt-Bradford’s first men’s basketball team from 1965-67 will be honored.

The brunch will take place at 10:30 a.m. in the Mukaiyama University Room in the Frame-Westerberg Commons. The public is welcome to attend. The cost is $12. For reservations, call the Pitt-Bradford alumni relations office at (814)362-5091.

Two Beautiful Albino Deer

I took these pictures of two Albino deer. The one on the right was the Mother and she had a fawn. I have seen one in the wild before also a Piebald, but I have never seen two together. The Chances of seeing an Albino Deer in the wild is about 1 in 100,000 which can be found online. It is said that you have a better chance of finding a piece of Gold in a stream than to see an Albino Deer in your lifetime. We have seen three this year. Do you think the chances are rising?

Thanks,

Apple Request

Apple Request

I am a teacher at a local school district and drive the majority of Route 49 on a daily basis. Along my drive I have the awe-inspiring experience of observing a multitude of apple trees in full harvest. Unfortunately, many of these trees are bearing fruit that drop straight to the ground and are not enjoyed by human consumption.

I would like to inquire if anybody who owns these trees would give me permission to stop and gather some of these apples to utilize in celebrating the upcoming anniversary of Johnny Appleseed's birthday with my students.

Program works to raise the visibility and profitability of artisans and arts-related businesses in PA Wilds

September 2011 – The PA Wilds Artisan Development Initiative is now accepting applications for its fall jury session for artisans and retail sites interested in joining the PA Wilds Artisan Trail.

Started in 2006, this program aims to raise the visibility and profitability of artisans and arts-related businesses in the PA Wilds in two main ways: by branding high-quality, locally-made artisan products with the “Proudly Made in the Pennsylvania Wilds” brand so these products can command a higher price; and helping get more of these items to market by establishing an Artisan Trail and an online presence for the program
(www.PAwildsArtisans.com) so artisans can more easily market their products to residents, visitors, design professionals and the like.

Skilled visual and craft artisans living in the PA Wilds are encouraged to apply to the program. Likewise, shops, restaurants, lodges, galleries, visitor centers and other retailers in the region who are interested in selling handcrafted items by PA Wilds Juried Artisans, and tying into the PA Wilds brand, are encouraged to apply to become a stop on the PA Wilds Artisan Trail. Jury sessions are held twice a year – in the fall and spring. The deadline for fall applications is Oct. 14.
 Membership guidelines are available at www.pawildsresources.org or by emailing tbrant@pawilds.com.

 The online application for businesses that want to renew or join the Artisan Trail as a retail stop are available at: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2012artisantrail

 The online application for artisans looking to join the program is available at:
http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/DZB2QRR

To learn more about the PA Wilds find us at www.pawildsresources.org or at facebook/PAWildsResources or on YouTube at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OxX3ppxMt6k

The PA Wilds Artisan Development Initiative is funded with support from the PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and the Appalachian Regional Commission.

Speed Display Sign Placed in Austin Borough, Potter County

Austin –In an effort to improve highway safety, PennDOT placed a radar-controlled speed display sign along Route 607 (Main Street) in Austin Borough, Potter County.

The sign faces southbound traffic on Route 607 in the village of Austin. This area is posted with a speed limit of 40 miles per hour.

The speed display sign will remain on location for about three weeks and will register the speeds of vehicles traveling along that section of roadway.

The speed display sign uses radar to determine the speeds of oncoming traffic. Those vehicle speeds are then posted on the lighted section of the sign. Above the speed display is a speed limit sign showing the posted 40-mile-per-hour speed limit for that section of Route 607.

PEC Basic-SafeGulf/SafeLand Orientation Train-the-Trainer

The Potter County Education Council and the Seneca Highlands Career and Technical Center are seeking interested individuals for the PEC Basic-SafeGulf/SafeLand Orientation Train-the-Trainer program.

The PEC Basic-SafeGulf/SafeLand Orientation Train-the-Trainer course allows an instructor to administer the PEC Basic-Safe Gulf/SafeLand Orientation course. The PEC Basic-SafeGulf/SafeLand Orientation course was designed to take the place of multiple operator orientation courses and to give each student a general idea of life and safety issues in the oil and gas industry - upstream, downstream, onshore, and offshore. As more and more industries are accepting and/or requiring this credential, having an in-house trainer can greatly reduce the cost of certifying your employees and increases your flexibility in scheduling the training.

Each instructor will receive classroom training and the following manuals: • PEC Basic Orientation Instructor Manual, • PEC Basic Orientation Student Manual, •PEC Basic Orientation Video, •All-in-One Video, •Backdrop for Student Photographs, •PowerPoint Presentation and reference material that will support the instruction of the program.

Ten individuals are needed to run this course. If you are interested in this course, call (814) 545-1333.

Thank You

Puppy Needs A Good Home

Puppy Needs A Good Home

I have a 7 month old lab/husky mix boy that is looking for a good home. He is very lovable, up to date on his shots and neutered.

His owner surrendered him to the vet who currently has him because they were threatened to be turned in for animal abuse...he lived in a crate for the 3 days the owner had him. He will have to go to a shelter soon and because of his size the vet is not sure how long they will be able to keep him before they have to put him down.

He is currently located in St. Mary's but I am willing to go get him if you will give him a home and possibly donate some money to cover the gas to go get him (this isn't required...).

If you are interested please let me know as soon as possible so that I can possibly make arrangements to go get him this weekend. You can give me a call at (814) 544-8032 or send me an email to beuford@gmail.com and I will get back to you. Please be sure that you are willing to take on the task before you accept this one...if you are going to tie him outside and just give him water and food every day then please don't say that you will take him. He is a dog and needs love just like you would love your kids.
