Share the Harvest This Hunting Season
The Pennsylvania Game Commission is
once again offering the “Hunters Sharing the Harvest” (HSH) program,
which provides donations of venison to help people in need.
Pennsylvania’s HSH program is
recognized as one of the most successful among similar programs in about
40 states. It helps to deliver almost 200,000 meals to food banks,
churches and other assistance programs in the Commonwealth.
To donate venison, hunters are
encouraged to take a deer to a participating meat processor and identify
how much of their deer meat to donate to HSH. There are a limited
number of participating processors in our area; visit www.sharedeer.org for a list.

Investing in Our Rail Infrastructure
The Commonwealth recently announced a
$1.9 million investment in freight-rail infrastructure in McKean County
that will help retain more than 300 jobs in the area. The funding was
awarded to American Refining Group Inc. to rehabilitate 3,700 feet of
track and to add new loading racks for the refinery. The total project
cost is more than $6 million.
According to ARG officials, the
project will allow the company to safely handle an estimated 10,000 rail
cars and will help remove 40,000 trucks from state and local highways.
The grant is part of a state investment of more than $18 million in
freight-rail infrastructure projects across the Commonwealth.
