Pennsylvania 4-H Week Celebrated Across The State

Pennsylvania 4-H Week Celebrated Across The State

by Sheila Gabreski

Program Assistant

Penn State Extension - Potter County

Pennsylvania 4-H Week was celebrated across the state this past week, March 11th-16th. Local 4-H youth and volunteers spent the week actively informing our Potter citizens about the 4-H program and the numerous benefits available through 4-H experiences.

The Potter County 4-H program prides itself on emphasizing the learn-by-doing approach. We have 17 active 4-H clubs across the county emphasizing project skills such as animal science, cooking & sewing scrapbooking, shooting sports, gardening, and more. Our 4-H Clubs elect officers and practice parliamentary procedure in their business meetings. They hone their public speaking skills and are required to do a formal demonstration in front of a club audience every year.

Potter County 4-H clubs also pride themselves on community service and teaching youth how to be active in their local neighborhoods. Our 116 Potter County 4-H members visit long-term care homes, collect donations for food banks and cancer associations, and give to the SPCA. They clean our County fairgrounds, place flowers at local cemeteries, recycle bottles/cans, and stock fish in local waterways. They collect used eye glasses and take valentines to Charles Cole Hospital. These youth work HARD to make a difference through their involvement in 4-H.

The next time you see a 4-H member or hear about a 4-H fundraiser, please support them with a smile or a donation. 4-H has been a strong part of Potter County history since 1916 and it will continue to be a program that teaches LEADERSHIP, CITIZENSHIP, and LIFE SKILLS for many years to come.

To learn more about the Potter County 4-H program or its alumni and friends associations, contact Sheila Gabreski at the Penn State Extension office in Coudersport, 274-8540 or srg22@psu.edu. The 4-H program is a youth development program of Penn State Extension. 4-H is open to all youth between the ages of 8 and 19.

GAME COMMISSION FINDS ADOPTIVE DENS FOR THREE ORPHANED CUBS

GAME COMMISSION FINDS ADOPTIVE DENS FOR THREE ORPHANED CUBS

HARRISBURG – After finding three black bear cubs stranded along a road near Troy, Bradford County earlier this week, Pennsylvania Game Commission officials today successfully completed a four-day race of locating and placing the two female cubs and one male cub in adoptive dens in Northeastern Pennsylvania.

Three orphan bears await transport to Pike County:

The clock started ticking on March 13, when Sullivan County Wildlife Conservation Officer (WCO) Rick Finnegan responded to the Armenia Mountain area near Troy, to investigate reports from passing motorists that three bear cubs were at the base of a fence near a township road.


“The cubs all weighed less than 6.5 pounds and were unable to walk,” WCO Finnegan said. “The immediate and surrounding area was surveyed for several hours and no adult female bear was observed, and there was no evidence of a vehicle collision. This unusual set of circumstances seemed to indicate someone may have unlawfully handled the cubs and dropped them off at this location.”

Bear cubs in Pennsylvania are born in January, and weigh 12 to 14 ounces. Female bears generally give birth to cubs every other year, and the cubs are weaned in late spring or early summer.

“Cubs at this age are extremely vulnerable,” said William Williams, Game Commission Northeast Region Information and Education Supervisor. “The immediate concern was to get the bears warm and hydrated. Cubs nurse on milk that contains nearly 30 percent milk fat, which allows them to maintain body function while quickly gaining weight; it essentially is a fluid that has the caloric equivalent of whipped cream.”

Dave Sittler, Game Commission biologist aide, places one of the bear cubs from Bradford County with three new siblings in Pike County:

WCO Finnegan took the two females and one male bear home, put ear tags on them and fed them evaporated milk from a baby bottle.

“The three slept a good portion of the evening, as they grunted and hummed and snorted and snored,” WCO Finnegan said.

The next step, Williams said, was to find adult females in the area that had cubs and would be receptive to having one of these three cubs placed with them.

“The Game Commission has had success transplanting orphan cubs to other nursing sows where they may be accepted and reared as one of their own,” Williams said. “It is the only real chance the cubs have at survival. However, trying to place three could be a challenge and timing is everything.”

Fortunately, Williams noted, now is the time of year that Game Commission biologists are visiting bear dens to study health and population trends of black bears by obtaining biological information from radio-collared sows with cubs. After locating a radio-collared sow, the adult bear is tranquilized and its general health status is evaluated. Any cubs are fitted with ear tags to identify each individual and aid biologists in studying black bear growth and dispersal trends.

Dr. Walter Cottrell, Game Commission veterinarian, hands off cub to be processed:

It just so happened that these annual studies were scheduled to take place in Pike, Lackawanna, and Luzerne counties during the remainder of the week.

In the pre-dawn hours of Wednesday, March 14, WCO Finnegan transported the cubs to Columbia County where he met Williams to complete the relay to the Pocono Mountains to begin the placement process.

By 9 a.m., a small crowd gathered in a Delaware State Forest parking lot in Porter Township, Pike County. Dr. Walter Cottrell, Game Commission veterinarian, arrived shortly thereafter with Mark Ternent, Game Commission bear biologist. Pike County WCO Mark Kropa had located a radio-collared sow that was known to be denning nearby. The small processing team made its way to the den site and soon the adult bear was tranquilized while her three cubs remained at her side.

After obtaining measurements and collecting biological information, the three cubs were fitted with ear tags and unceremoniously rubbed with dirt (to diminish human scent) before being attached to the sow’s nipples. Joining three offspring was one of the adoptive female cubs from Bradford County.

The team then traveled to the den of a second sow, only a few miles away. This bear was tucked into a ground den with her four cubs. The entire process was repeated and a second of the Armenia Mountain bears was provided with a new parent and siblings.

Today, March 16, at 10:30 a.m., the lone male cub of the litter was placed on State Game Land 180, Blooming Grove Township, Pike County, with a sow and her two cubs.

“It’s great when a plan comes together,” Williams said.

PennDOT Announces Highway Deaths in 2011 Second-Lowest on Record

PennDOT Announces Highway Deaths in 2011 Second-Lowest on Record

Harrisburg – There were 1,291 people killed in crashes on Pennsylvania roads last year, the second-lowest number on record and 33 fewer than in 2010, according to PennDOT Secretary Barry J. Schoch.

“While we are encouraged that the number of people killed on Pennsylvania roads dropped last year, we must remember that each of these victims has loved ones who have to deal with their loss each and every day,” Schoch said. “It’s because of those lives lost and all the lives that we hope to save next year that we are working on several fronts to make Pennsylvania highways safer for everyone.”

PennDOT has invested approximately $50 million in the last five years for safety improvements such as cable median barriers, centerline and edgeline rumble strips and obstruction removal. PennDOT also invests approximately $20 million annually in state and federal funds for safety education and enforcement efforts statewide.

Fatalities in crashes involving a drinking driver decreased from 417 in 2010 to 379 in 2011, the lowest number in more than 10 years.

Motorcyclist and bicyclist fatalities also decreased in 2011. Motorcyclist fatalities dropped from 223 in 2010 to 198 in 2011, while bicyclist fatalities decreased from 21 to 11 in that same time period.

Fatalities in hit-tree crashes also decreased, with 295 in 2010 compared to 250 in 2011. Fatalities resulting from cross-median crashes decreased from 84 in 2010 to 48 in 2011, and head-on crash fatalities fell to 158, the lowest number in more than a decade.

While many fatal crash categories saw decreases in 2011, some categories increased. Fatalities in crashes involving a 16-year old driver increased from 19 in 2010 to 29 last year. Crashes involving trains or trolleys and vehicles resulted in six fatalities, an increase from one fatality in 2010.

The lowest number of traffic fatalities ever recorded in Pennsylvania occurred in 2009, when there were 1,256 fatalities. The state’s traffic-fatality numbers are heading in the right direction, Schoch said, noting that in 2001, there were 1,531 fatalities.

Governor Corbett Proclaims March 18-24 Wildfire Prevention Week

Governor Corbett Proclaims March 18-24 Wildfire Prevention Week

Harrisburg – Governor Tom Corbett has proclaimed March 18-24 Wildfire Prevention Week in Pennsylvania, noting a relatively warm and dry winter has greatly increased the risk of spring wildfires in much of the state.

“Warm, sunny days and drying March winds can cause wildfire dangers to spike almost overnight,” Corbett said. “Last spring, wet, cool weather proved to be firefighters’ strongest ally, helping curb brush and woodlands fires that usually can be traced to carelessness and always endanger our vast forest resources.”

Last spring, volunteer firefighters and Bureau of Forestry personnel battled about 150 reported brush and forest fires that scorched almost 400 acres. The largest was mid-April blaze that burned 100 acres in northeastern Pennsylvania.

“Almost all wildfires can be traced back to people,” Corbett noted. “A mere spark by a careless person can touch off a devastating forest blaze during dry periods when conditions are especially ripe for wildfires to spread. We urge residents and visitors to use common sense with campfires, outdoor burning and smoking materials.”

State Bureau of Forestry statistics show nearly 85 percent of Pennsylvania’s wildfires occur in March, April and May, before the greening of state woodlands and brush lands. Named for rapid spread through dormant dry vegetation, under windy conditions, wildfires annually scorch nearly 10,000 acres of state and private woodlands.

Anglers, campers and other state forest visitors are reminded open fires are prohibited on state forestland from March 1 to May 25, and when the fire danger is listed as high, very high, or extreme, unless authorized by district foresters.

Communities in heavily wooded areas are urged to follow wildfire prevention and suppression methods of the Pennsylvania Firewise Community Program to safeguard life and property.

DCNR’s Bureau of Forestry is responsible for prevention and suppression of wildfires on Pennsylvania’s 17 million acres of state and private woodlands and brush lands. The bureau maintains a fire-detection system, and works with fire wardens and volunteer fire departments to ensure they are trained in the latest advances in fire prevention and suppression.

For more information on Wildfire Prevention Week activities, contact local district foresters; call the Bureau of Forestry at (717) 787-2925; or visit www.dcnr.state.pa.us (select “Find a Forest” and then, “Wildfire”).

Editor’s Note: The following is the text of Governor Corbett’s proclamation:
WILDFIRE PREVENTION WEEK - March 18-24, 2012

WHEREAS, Pennsylvania’s bountiful woodlands and brush lands enrich the lives of both residents and visitors alike on a daily basis, providing irreplaceable habitat for countless flora and fauna species, a sustainable resource of timber and clean water and scenic recreational opportunities; and

WHEREAS, though both are sustainable resources, woodlands and brush lands quickly can be devastated by acts of carelessness. People are responsible for 98 percent of all wildfires, nearly 85 percent of which occur in March, April and May prior to the greening of our woodlands and brush lands; and

WHEREAS, wildfires annually devastate nearly 10,000 acres of state forest and even more private land; and threaten life, property and the sustainability of our valuable natural resources; and

WHEREAS, wildfire prevention hinges heavily on public understanding and appreciation of these values. Precaution and vigilance must be everyone’s personal charge, so that we can continue enjoying Pennsylvania’s millions of acres of woodlands and brush lands, now and into the future; and

WHEREAS, communities in heavily wooded areas are urged to follow wildfire prevention and suppression methods of the Pennsylvania Firewise Community Program to safeguard life and property; and

WHEREAS, these commonsense guidelines aid the brave men and women who serve as volunteer forest firefighters for our community volunteer fire companies and the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.

THEREFORE, In recognition of the importance of protecting our woodlands, brush lands, life, property and our natural resources, I, Tom Corbett, Governor of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, do hereby proclaim March 18-24, 2012 as WILDFIRE PREVENTION WEEK in Pennsylvania. I urge all Pennsylvanians and visitors to protect our valuable woodlands and brush lands by being meticulously cautious with the use of fire.

TOM CORBETT, Governor

Faulty cable blamed for 9-1-1 outage

Faulty cable blamed for 9-1-1 outage

Courier Express
BROOKVILLE -- A three foot section of a copper trunk cable is being blamed for the temporary interruption of 9-1-1 services within Jefferson County early Friday morning, March 9 according to Jefferson County Emergency Services Director Tracy Zents.

"9-1-1 operators were experiencing problems hearing callers late Thursday evening," said Zents. "Windstream, the telephone provider for the 9-1-1 service to the county, was contacted and was troubleshooting the problem at the time of the outage.

"A three foot section of a copper trunk line located within the Borough of Brookville became wet and stopped connectivity to the equipment located at the 9-1-1 center around 2:20 a.m.," said Zents.

Pingie said the needs of all these individual groups of students will be addressed by the different informational sessions that will be offered throughout the event.

A panel of students will talk about college life and their experiences at Pitt-Bradford. The panel for Saturday includes Brittany Thomas, a public relations major from Parkesburg; Yara Elbeshbishi, a chemistry major from Montgomery, Md.; Prasanti Babu, a biology major from Rockville, Md.; Charlie Burdine, a sport and recreation management major from Philadelphia; Daniel Robinson, a nursing major from Gifford; and Liz Tillman, a human relations major from Appleton, N.Y.
