Improving Pennsylvania’s Jobs Climate, More Gaming Reforms and Distracted Driving On House Agenda Next Week

Improving Pennsylvania’s Jobs Climate, More Gaming Reforms and Distracted Driving On House Agenda Next Week

The state House returns to session on Monday, Oct. 24, to debate and vote on various issues of importance.

As John Gardner once said, “The best social program is a good economy.” House Republicans take that comment to heart. In fact, the top House GOP Caucus priority is improving the state’s jobs climate and the key to a strong Commonwealth will be higher employment and economic growth. According to job creators and various studies, Pennsylvania still has one of the highest costs of doing business in the country when combining state and local taxes, fees, regulatory requirements and health care.

By working together, the House GOP, Senate and Gov. Tom Corbett are changing the state’s perception to throw open Pennsylvania’s doors to job creation and retention.

The House Finance Committee will move two bills, readying them for floor action the following week. The legislation, House Bill 1503 (Rep. Stan Saylor, R-York County) and House Bill 1552 (Rep. Bryan Cutler, R-Lancaster County), is part of the GOP caucus strategy of plugging away to improve the jobs climate and lower the cost of doing business in the state. The Saylor bill would create an “Angel Investor Tax Credit” for individuals who invest in innovative small start-up companies that have been in existence for less than seven years. Continuing the attack on lawsuit abuse, the Cutler bill would end “venue shopping” by claimants; a suit could only be filed in the county of the alleged incident.

Continuing the caucus quest to fix the state’s Gaming Law, the House will vote on a series of bills aimed at greater openness and transparency; the bills were inspired through inadequacies discovered through several years’ worth of Republican Policy Committee hearings and two grand jury reports. The House Gaming Oversight Committee on Tuesday will take up several other bills to help fix the obviously flawed law.

Distracted driving will be debated and considered on Tuesday.

The Weekly Schedule
Bill numbers will be used to identify the legislation being considered either in committee or on the House floor. The bills, sponsors and summaries are posted HERE.

Rep. GT Thompson Brings Government To High School Students In Home District

***Hundreds of Western Pennsylvania Students Attend "Government Outreach 2011"***

Bradford, PA – Students from high schools throughout the Western part of the 5th Congressional District last Wednesday attended a government seminar, “Government Outreach 2011,” at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford. “Government Outreach 2011” – hosted by U.S. Representative Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson, R-Howard,” and sponsored by the University of Pittsburgh – offered students insight into the role of the federal government and future career and education opportunities. Hundreds of students from over 16 area high schools were in attendance.

The Seminar’s activities included a welcome from Livingston Alexander, President of the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford, remarks from numerous motivational speakers, and career opportunity presentations from several event sponsors, including Ms. Amy Oswald, of Joy Mining Machinery.

“It’s a tremendous opportunity to have students from schools from all over the congressional district here at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford,” said Thompson, in welcoming the students. “I’m hoping that out of the conversations we have today, some of the students will learn new insight into how the world works, the functions of government, and maybe even find a career path or realize a passion.”

Thompson later spoke to his own education and career background, emphasizing the importance of a good education in creating opportunity. “Education has been a tool – a key to success and advancement,” said Thompson. During intermission, area high school students discussed their experience at “Government Outreach 2011,” including Page and Ashley from Bradford Area High School.

Two guest speakers were Penn State Professor Dr. Lawrence (Larry) A. Schardt, the author of “The Magic Moment: Creating a Lifetime of Happiness and Success,” and Mr. Robb Armstrong, the creator of the syndicated comic strip “Jump Start,” which runs in more than 450 newspapers in 8 countries. Both individuals offered motivational speeches on pursuing dreams and finding success in life. Similarly, Thompson challenged students to pursue their dreams. “If you have a passion, take a risk, and get after your dreams,” he said.

Prior to being elected to Congress, Thompson spent 28 years as a therapist, rehabilitation services manager and a licensed nursing home administrator, where he learned firsthand the importance of access to quality healthcare in rural communities. During the seminar, Thompson added that his passion for “making a difference in people’s lives,” is what ultimately led him into the field of healthcare and on to run for Congress, where a key focus of his work is advancing policy solutions in the area healthcare.

The seminar, a two-day event, continued Thursday in Lock Haven, PA, at Lock Haven University.

Study Confirms Global Warming

Koch Funded Study Proves Again Global Warming & Apologies Should Be Next

Scientific American said of physicist and climate skeptic at University of California-Berkeley: "Muller's views on climate have made him the darling of the climate skeptics." That probably explains why Professor Muller received a $150,000 grant from the Koch Brothers that partially funded the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature Project. Other funding included support from Bill Gates' Foundation.

Muller has now released 4 scientific papers (http://berkeleyearth.org/) that confirm the scientific work done by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, NASA's Goddard Institute, and the Hadley Center for Climate Prediction and Research in Britain. Muller specifically states his findings rebut the charges that the climate records have been manipulated or incorrectly presented.

Muller makes the following findings:

1. Global average land temperatures have increased 0.91 celsius degrees.

2. The rate of warming is accelerating and warmed over the last 40 years at a rate of 2.76 celsius for a century, after warming at a rate of 0.73 degrees celsius for the entire 20th century.

3. There has not been a cooling since 1998. Instead the rate of warming has accelerated to 2.84 degrees celsius from 1998 to 2010.

The science that the world is warming and the rate of warming is irrefutable. Professor Muller's BEST papers now pose a challenge to the honor of those who have funded and spread global warming junk science.

Will the global warming deniers such as Governor Perry, Senator Inhofe, George Will, and most of the conservative movement who often attack the left for adhering to junk science confess their error? Will people like Governor Perry who have smeared scientists by saying that they have manipulated temperature data to gain income apologize for their reckless, false charges?

For the rest of us, the Muller BEST data is the worst kind of good news. While it shreds the global warming deniers of all integrity, it confirms once more that substantial warming has taken place, the rate of warming is accelerating, and that our climate is changing in ways that can cause major economic and natural damages.

Jack Goga Announces New $4.1 Million Dickinson Facility On Boot Jack Hill

Groundbreaking ceremony held for future Dickinson facility

October 22, 2011

St. Marys Daily Press

Dickinson Center, Inc. [DCI], formerly Dickinson Mental Health Center, held a groundbreaking ceremony Friday morning for their new facility along Servidea Drive atop Boot Jack Hill in Ridgway.

The new facility will consolidate 10 distinct site- and community-based programs into a 28,200-square-foot facility and will house approximately 100 full- and part-time employees.

Dickinson's Chief Executive Officer Jack Goga gave a heartfelt presentation to board members, administrators, KTH-Hallstrom Construction, and to the county and borough officials who braved the cold to celebrate the birth of the facility.

"There is a rumor flying around that Dickinson is building a new facility," Goga said. "I am here today to tell you that is true and we are very fortunate to have a group of individuals in the name of KTH-Hallstrom building what will be a magnificent building for our organization.

"This is a project that has really been in the works for quite a few years. There has been an identified need for our organization; giving its growth and expansion particularly over the last 10 years, to really begin to think about the opportunity to consolidate our programs and coordinate our operations in a way that would be consistent with good business practices and being able to provide a more efficient level of care for our consumers and the residents of our community."

A competitive bidding process this past spring resulted in KTH-Hallstrom, a regional design-build company in DuBois, receiving the construction contract award. A guaranteed maximum price of $4,121,400 has been established for this building project. More...

NY Drilling Regs Offer More Protection To Fresh Water Sources

Insight: N.Y. gas drillers' victory soured by tough new rules

By Edward McAllister
Reuters
(Reuters) - The end of a drilling ban in New York was meant to be a new dawn for energy companies. After years of waiting, they would finally be able to exploit the richest deposit of natural gas in the country.

But as companies delve into new regulations for drilling in New York, they're discovering a bitter reality: half the land they had leased for drilling may now be out of bounds.

In proposed new rules for drilling, which are expected to be finalized early next year, the state has imposed an off-limits buffer around its waterways due to environmental concerns about the effects that drilling will have on water supplies.

The buffers are as much as 20 times larger than neighboring, industry-friendly Pennsylvania.

EPA Head Faults House Republicans Assault On Clean Air/Water

Op-Ed
'Too dirty to fail'?
House Republicans' assault on our environmental laws must be stopped.

By Lisa P. Jackson
Los Angeles Times
October 21, 2011

Americans must once again stand up for their right to clean air and clean water.

Since the beginning of this year, Republicans in the House have averaged roughly a vote every day the chamber has been in session to undermine the Environmental Protection Agency and our nation's environmental laws. They have picked up the pace recently — just last week they voted to stop the EPA's efforts to limit mercury and other hazardous pollutants from cement plants, boilers and incinerators — and it appears their campaign will continue for the foreseeable future. Read the entire op ed in the LA Times.....

Mazing For Miracles (tonight) Saturday To Benefit Arnot Ogden


Mazing For Miracles Slated for this weekend

Whispering Evergreens Farm in Ulysses, PA is proud to present Mazing For Miracles fundraiser for the Arnot Ogden Medical Center for the 2nd year in a row.

The funds raised from this event will go directly to the Children’s Miracle Network at the Arnot Ogden Medical Center. This program was designed to assist the Hamiltons in raising funds for a hospital that did so much for them and their daughter Marian who was born three months premature. “If it were not for the Arnot, Marian would not have done as well as she did” states Marian’s dad Marshall.

The Children’s Miracle Network assists families with a multitude of things including an emergency fund if their child needs to be transferred to another hospital.

Children's Miracle Network (CMN) is an alliance of 170 hospitals dedicated to raising funds and awareness for the treatment of infants and children. Since 1992, CMN at Arnot Ogden Medical Center has raised more than $4 million to support healthcare services for infants and children in a nine-county region of southern New York and northern Pennsylvania.

Each year, Arnot Ogden Medical Center's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) cares for more than 360 premature or critically ill infants. The pediatric program at Arnot serves more than 400 children annually and is the only dedicated pediatric unit in the Twin Tiers.

Every dollar raised locally stays in our region.

Every dollar benefits a child through medical care, equipment, programs or education. Last year Little Marian presented a check totaling $1,010 to CMN. This year Marian and her parents are hoping to raise $1,500 to donate to CMN and the families at the Arnot.

Please come out for Mazing for Miracles. October 22, 2011. Bring a flashlight as the corn maze will be dark. 320 Gee Hill Road Ulysses PA 16948.

These little pumpkins need us! For more information contact the Hamiltons at 814-848-7426.

Potter County Commissioners Meeting Agenda For October 20, 2011



Safety Issues Prompt Complete Drawdown of Speedwell Forge Lake

Safety Issues Prompt
Complete Drawdown of Speedwell Forge Lake


Harrisburg, PA – The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) is alerting anglers, boaters and the general public that it has begun to completely draw down Lancaster County’s Speedwell Forge Lake in order to alleviate pressure on the lake’s dam and spillway, which was heavily damaged by recent storm events.

“We inspected the facility on Oct. 17-18 and found that the spillway had lifted or ‘heaved’ as a result of increased pressure, subsequently creating numerous cracks in the concrete spillway,” said Dan Leonard, director of the PFBC Bureau of Engineering. “The spillway’s structural integrity has been compromised and we believe future storm events will further degrade its integrity. Therefore, we are proceeding with the immediate and complete drawdown of the impoundment until further testing and analyses can be performed.”

The lake is being drained at a rate of about one foot per day. Depending on the weather, it may take over a month to fully drain it.

In anticipation of the complete drawdown, the PFBC has temporarily lifted all seasons, sizes and creel limits on the lake and is encouraging anglers to harvest as many fish as they can.

“With the warm October that we’ve had so far, lakes are warmer than usual and fish are very active, which should make fishing very good now and as the lake is drawn down,” said Dave Miko, chief of the PFBC Division of Fisheries Management. “Anglers can expect to catch largemouth bass, crappie, channel catfish, bluegill, and carp.”

PFBC biologists will conduct fish salvages within the next several weeks and will move the fish to nearby waters. Biologists have not yet identified those waters. Although fish salvages generally save a large number of fish, a significant amount will also perish, added Miko.

“We will collect as many fish as we can through netting and electro-fishing, but it is impossible to capture all of them,” he said. “Fish die during any drawdown and salvage effort. Many hide around structures where we simply can’t reach them, and others become buried in the mud when they are slow to exit the lake with the remaining water. Anglers and the general public should expect to see this.”

In particular, a large number of the gizzard shad population is expected to perish. The species - a silver gray forage fish which ranges from 4 inches to 12 inches in length - experiences natural die-offs each spring at the lake. They also have a limited tolerance to handling.

The lake will remain open to public use until the water level reaches a point where it may be unsafe for anglers. At that point the lake will be closed and signs will be posting alerting anglers of the closing.

Located in Elizabeth Township, Speedwell Forge Lake is a 106-acre impoundment owned by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and managed by the PFBC for public fishing and boating. The Commonwealth acquired the property in 1963, and the dam was constructed in 1966. The Commission's Southeast Region office is located at the lake.

The lake is one of 16 high-hazard and un-safe dams managed by the PFBC on behalf of the Commonwealth. The PFBC estimates that it will cost $6.43 million to reconstruct the dam’s concrete spillway and reinforce the embankment. However, the project is currently unfunded.

The PFBC is currently rebuilding four high-hazard and un-safe dams, including Leaser Lake in Lehigh County, Opossum Lake in Cumberland County, and the Dutch Fork and Canonsburg lakes in Washington County.

More information about high-hazard dams and the funding needed to rebuild them is available on the PFBC website at: http://www.fishandboat.com/dams/index.htm.

PennDOT: Gas Tax Hike Needed Just To Keep Up With Inflation

PennDOT secretary calls for gasoline tax hike

By ALYSSA MURPHY - amurphy@sungazette.com ,
Williamsport Sun-Gazette
The last time Pennsylvania increased the tax on gasoline was in 1997.

Speaking at a breakfast at the Genetti Hotel hosted by Glenn Hawbaker Inc., state Secretary of Transportation Barry Schoch suggested raising the fuel tax to meet inflation.

For every gallon of gasoline purchased since 1997, 12 cents goes to the state Department of Transportation. Schoch said as fuel efficiency has risen, fewer gallons of gasoline are sold - and that means less money coming into the state coffers. More...

Mazing For Miracles Saturday To Benefit Arnot Ogden


Mazing For Miracles Slated for this weekend

Whispering Evergreens Farm in Ulysses, PA is proud to present Mazing For Miracles fundraiser for the Arnot Ogden Medical Center for the 2nd year in a row.

The funds raised from this event will go directly to the Children’s Miracle Network at the Arnot Ogden Medical Center. This program was designed to assist the Hamiltons in raising funds for a hospital that did so much for them and their daughter Marian who was born three months premature. “If it were not for the Arnot, Marian would not have done as well as she did” states Marian’s dad Marshall.

The Children’s Miracle Network assists families with a multitude of things including an emergency fund if their child needs to be transferred to another hospital.

Children's Miracle Network (CMN) is an alliance of 170 hospitals dedicated to raising funds and awareness for the treatment of infants and children. Since 1992, CMN at Arnot Ogden Medical Center has raised more than $4 million to support healthcare services for infants and children in a nine-county region of southern New York and northern Pennsylvania.

Each year, Arnot Ogden Medical Center's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) cares for more than 360 premature or critically ill infants. The pediatric program at Arnot serves more than 400 children annually and is the only dedicated pediatric unit in the Twin Tiers.

Every dollar raised locally stays in our region.

Every dollar benefits a child through medical care, equipment, programs or education. Last year Little Marian presented a check totaling $1,010 to CMN. This year Marian and her parents are hoping to raise $1,500 to donate to CMN and the families at the Arnot.

Please come out for Mazing for Miracles. October 22, 2011. Bring a flashlight as the corn maze will be dark. 320 Gee Hill Road Ulysses PA 16948.

These little pumpkins need us! For more information contact the Hamiltons at 814-848-7426.
