Students Serve Those in Need in the Nation's Capital on Spring Break

Students Serve Those in Need in the Nation's Capital on Spring Break

DuBOIS – For this year's spring break, 20 Penn State students spent seven days in Washington D.C. learning about the issues that surround homelessness and poverty in the United States, and volunteering to help those who are homeless. The students had the opportunity to meet many homeless people on their service trip, putting faces with the issue.

Students volunteered at Capitol Area Food Bank where they sorted canned goods that are distributed to 700 area organizations, and at D.C. Central Kitchen, which serves 4,500 meals a day to local food shelters.

Marly Doty, assistant director of Student Affairs at Penn State DuBois, and Ken Nellis, campus athletic coordinator, accompanied students on the trip. Doty said, "I'm so proud of the Penn State students that I had the privilege of leading to DC. They are all incredible and I have a renewed faith in our country's future because of their leadership and determination."

"Interacting with the homeless and learning their story had the biggest impact on me," said student Evan Aravich. "I feel that homelessness is something that is commonly talked about but not completely understood. Looking back, I now have a more complete understanding of how homelessness affects the individuals going through it."

Students Aid in Superstrom Sandy Cleanup

Students Aid in Superstrom Sandy Cleanup

DuBOIS – A group of students from Penn State DuBois recently traveled to Baldwin, New York over spring break to assist in relief efforts that have been ongoing since Superstorm Sandy hit the area in October. A total of five students from the campus made the trip with the Christian Student Fellowship, led by Campus Minister Kyle Gordon and International and Multicultural Student Services Coordinator Tharren Thompson.

In Baldwin, students worked to repair the Nassau Christian Church and parsonage that was damaged by flooding. The reinstalled insulation in the floors by accessing crawl spaces, laid the subfloor, stripped damaged wiring for scrap, and installed drywall. The church will use the money they get from the scrap that the students collected to fund a young girl's tuition for seminary so she can become a missionary. Once the parsonage is completely finished, the church will use it to host more work groups to come and help rebuild the community. The church currently serves as a hub for those that are in need of assistance in the area.

"I know students left this trip knowing they made a significant impact in the lives of the people in the Baldwin community," said Gordon. "Even further, I know this trip made a significant impact in the lives of our team as several are now exploring how they can be more involved in community service and even make a career out of relief efforts."

Corbett’s DEP withdraws 4 pollutants from regulatory plan

Pa. eases water standard update after industry complaint 
Corbett’s DEP withdraws 4 pollutants from regulatory plan

Shale Gas Review
by Tom Wilbur
In the face of industry opposition, Pennsylvania officials have backed away from proposed standards that would limit certain kinds pollution that drilling and fracking operators can discharge into the Commonwealth’s waters.

Specifically, the agency has removed proposed standards for molybdenum, sulfates, chlorides, and 1-4 dioxane, because the restrictions “raised the concern of the business community,” according to a recent DEP report. The constituents were originally included in proposed updates to Chapter 93, which regulates water quality under the Clean Streams Law. The revised proposal is now pending approval by the Department of Environmental Protection’s Environmental Quality Board.

The most acutely toxic of the chemicals excluded from the proposed standards is 1-4 dioxane, a manufacturing solvent that can cause illnesses ranging from cancer to organ failure, and for which there is no current water quality standard in Pennsylvania.  Read more...

PA Wilds: Wineries thrive among elk, forests, and creeks

PA Wilds: Wineries thrive among elk, forests, and creeks
By Tataboline Enos. Originally published in Keystone Edge March 7, 2013

 
 The Pennsylvania Wilds may be best known for its wild places and wildlife, but as more people trek to the region to explore its woods, mountains and waterways, it is driving growth of another kind of tourism asset: a robust trail of wineries.


The Pennsylvania Wilds spans two wine regions – the Groundhog and Upper Susquehanna – and has long been peppered with a few unique, family-run wineries. But several more have opened or expanded in the region in recent years, creating jobs and helping define the visitor experience in this evolving outdoor recreation destination.

PITT-BRADFORD TO PRESENT PLAY ‘OH, THE HUMANITY’

PITT-BRADFORD TO PRESENT PLAY ‘OH, THE HUMANITY’

BRADFORD, Pa. – The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford’s Division of Communication and the Arts next week will present “Oh, the Humanity,” a group of five small plays written by Will Eno.

The play, which is directed by Dr. Kevin Ewert, professor of theater, takes place at 7:30 p.m. April 4, 5 and 6 in the Studio Theater of Blaisdell Hall, and at 2 p.m. April 7. The production runs about an hour with no intermission. Tickets are $6 for the public and $2 for all students.

The loosely connected plays capture emotional moments in the lives of ordinary individuals: a coach admitting defeat, a man and woman each preparing to record a video for a dating service, and an airline spokesperson trying to spin a tragedy.

“Will Eno has one of the most distinctive voices in the theater today,” Ewert said. “His work has been called ‘existential stand-up,’ and that nicely captures his ability to create these hilarious moments of our everyday failings, our agonies and our anxieties.

The cast includes Josh Ellson, a radiological science major from Export; Matthew Tuzynski, an interdisciplinary arts major from Clarks Mills; James Segee, a writing major from Bradford; Stephanie Mihalik, a history-political science major from Pittsburgh; Nyssa Brumagin, an interdisciplinary arts major from North Warren; community member Kelley Baker-Ewert; Love Lee, a broadcast communications major from Upper Darby; Michael Robinson, an interdisciplinary arts major from Louisville, Ky.; and Danielle Scott, a history-political science major from Altadena, Calif.

Tickets are available in advance through the Bromeley Theater Box Office, which can be reached at (814)362-5113 or showtix@pitt.edu.

For disability-related needs, contact the Office of Disability Resources and Services at (814)362-7609 or clh71@pitt.edu.

Halls Run Bridge Work Starts April 8 under Flagging

Clinton County
Halls Run Bridge Work Starts April 8 under Flagging
Temporary signals will control traffic starting April 16

Lock Haven – On behalf of Governor Tom Corbett, PennDOT today announced that work to replace a bridge on Route 144 south of Renovo will get underway on Monday, April 8. Once work is complete, PennDOT will be able to remove the current one-truck-at-a-time posting and delete the bridge from the list of structurally deficient bridges in Clinton County. Replacement will also provide area drivers with safer, more efficient travel across a modern structure.

Weather permitting; work on the bridge will start April 8 under an alternating traffic pattern, with flaggers present in the work zone. On Tuesday, April 16, temporary traffic signals will be in place to enforce an alternating traffic pattern. Lane width through the work zone is ten feet.

The bridge spans Halls Run, about three miles south of Renovo in Noyes Township. The Halls Run Bridge was built in 1941, is 32 feet long and carries an average of 320 vehicles each day.

Work is expected to last through late October and includes replacement of the old bridge with a new concrete box beam bridge, approach work, paving, guide rail updates, and miscellaneous items. LTT Trucking LLC of North Bend is the contractor for this $1 million job.

Drivers are reminded to obey posted speed limits and always buckle up.

Potter County and Charles Cole Memorial Hospital have partnered with Clinical Outcomes Group Inc. (COGI) for smoking and tobacco cessation programs. 

Participants are eligible for nicotine replacement therapies, including gum, lozenges or patches. All services and products are free.

A free 90-minute smoking cessation workshop will be held by COGI on Tuesday, April 9, at Cole Hospital’s main conference room.

 Participants can choose between sessions at 7:30 am, 1 pm and 6 pm. Call 814-260-5550 to register.  In addition to holding workshops, COGI refers individuals to support groups and otherwise helps them through the process of quitting. For more information on COGI, send email to quit@COGInc.org, or call 1-800-264-1290. COGI has been providing services in Pennsylvania for more than ten years.

Recent tax increases on tobacco products and further revelation about the impact of smoking on both the smoker and others who breathe the toxins have resulted in a larger number of smokers attempting to quit.

Bright Voices of the Allegheny National Forest

Bright Voices of the Allegheny National Forest

By Laurie Barr



Fireflies, like honeybees and butterflies have four stages in their lifecycles. These include egg, larva, pupa and adult. This remarkable lifecycle is called “complete metamorphosis.” Fireflies, honeybees and butterflies have something else in common; they use unique visual communication to convey ideas and information.

Honeybees communicate by "dancing.” Worker bees collect nectar and pollen and then return to the colony and perform a dance to tell the other bees where they have been and where they may go to collect nectar and pollen. Butterflies communicate with each other by using special flutter and flight patterns. The male butterfly will attract a female by performing a "courtship dance” and if a female is interested she will join him. Their “voices” are their unique and elaborate dances.

Unlike bees and butterflies, which are active during the day, fireflies communicate with each other and attract their mates by creating their own light after the sun goes down. Their messages, written in light reach out to each other and also deliver information. Their bright voices communicate not only with each other, but also to the world with clues to the health of their forest habitat.

Each stage of the firefly metamorphosis: egg, larva, pupa and adult, depends on a healthy environment. However their remarkably beautiful form of communication during their mating ritual involves a language of their own and requires darkness.

In the Allegheny National Forest a remarkably rare population of fireflies which communicates by performing in an amazing dance of bioluminescence en masse and in synchronicity were discovered.

The Allegheny Defense Project (ADP) recently announced in their January 2013 newsletter, The Hellbender Digest; “Synchronous Fireflies Confirmed in the Allegheny National Forest” after an international team of biologists were invited to the area of the ANF where these rare fireflies were discovered, near the Black Caddis Ranch Bed and Breakfast, in Kelletville, PA. Close to where the ADP members first observed the synchronous fireflies.

The research shed light on one of the greatest “wonders of nature” the ANF has to offer. The ANF is one of only a few places on earth to host this spectacular natural synchronous light show. The team of international researchers confirmed the population of rare synchronous fireflies in the ANF by performing field studies, flash timings, microscopic exams and DNA analysis. There are other confirmed populations of synchronous fireflies in the Great Smokey Mountains and in Southeast Asia. The researchers; members of the ”FIRE” (Firefly International Research and Education) team, studied the Great Smoky Mountains National Park Photinus carolinus populations and confirmed this inspiring ritual. A “True Wonder of Nature.” The phenomenon attracts thousands of tourists annually to the Great Smoky Mountains who come armed with blankets and lawn chairs to view this inspiring and spectacular display. Preservation of the darkness of their habitat is fundamental, not only to the species survival, but also to ensure the spectacular display of light will entertain generations to come.

Their inclusive message, their brilliant behavior, their bright voices of the Allegheny National Forest, are far too important to ignore.

Discovering and learning about the lifecycles and habitat of these amazing fireflies can be a fun for the entire family!

The “First Annual PA Firefly Festival” will take place June 21-23 kicking off at the Black Caddis Ranch B&B in Kellettville, PA. Family friendly activities will be planned throughout the weekend!

Friday and Saturday nights the fireflies will provide the spectacular entertainment!

Study on Consumer Demand for Natural Gas Service to Begin

Study on Consumer Demand for Natural Gas Service to Begin

Penn State Extension
A bi-partisan state senate resolution passed to study the demand for natural gas service in the Commonwealth

Study on Consumer Demand for Natural Gas Service to Begin

State Senate Resolution 29 was unanimously passed by the Pennsylvania State Senate on March 11th that directs the Center for Rural Pennsylvania to study the potential need for residential, commercial and industrial natural gas service in the Commonwealth. The Center will collect and analyze the following information:

• the estimated demand for natural gas service in un-served and under-served areas of the Commonwealth;

• the estimated price consumers are willing to pay for access or conversion to natural gas service;

• identify any regional differences in consumer demand and willingness to pay for natural gas service; and

• any other relevant economic information on the costs and benefits to expand natural gas distribution infrastructure.

The study will be completed by August 1, 2013.

According to the Resolution, the US Census Bureau estimates that only about 51% of PA homes are heated with natural gas. Many residents don’t have access to natural gas service due to the lack of natural gas distribution infrastructure. With the natural gas abundance in the state, the study will help determine if it may be beneficial to lower energy heating costs, provide economic development opportunities, create jobs, and lower net emissions of carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxide and sulfur dioxide through greater availability throughout the state.

The Senate Resolution 29 may be found here.

Rich Products Recalls Several Products

Buffalo, NY,  Firm Recalls Frozen Mini Quesadilla, Pizza, Cheese Steak and Other Snack Products Due To Possible E. Coli O121 Contamination
Recall Release CLASS I RECALL
FSIS-RC-025-2013 HEALTH RISK: HIGH

WASHINGTON, March 28, 2013 – Rich Products Corporation, a Buffalo, NY firm, is recalling approximately 196,222 pounds of frozen chicken quesadilla and various other heat treated, not fully cooked frozen mini meals and snack items because they may be contaminated with E. coli O121, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.

The following products are subject to FSIS recall: [View Labels (PDF Only)]

7.2-oz. cartons of Farm Rich mini pizza slices with cheese pepperoni and sauce in pizza dough, UPC code 041322376909 with a best by date of May 15 or May 16, 2014.
22-oz. cartons of Farm Rich mini pizza slices with cheese pepperoni and sauce in pizza dough, UPC code 041322356437 with a best by date of May 15 or May 16, 2014.
18-oz. bags of Farm Rich mini quesadillas with cheese, grilled white meat chicken in a crispy crust, UPC code 041322356352 with a best by date of May 14, 2014.
21-oz. bags of Farm Rich philly cheese steaks with cheese, beef & onions in a crispy crust, UPC code 041322356345 with a best by date of May 13, 2014.


In addition, the following products, which fall under FDA jurisdiction, are also being recalled. FSIS is issuing this news release to make the public aware that these products are also considered potentially adulterated and should be properly discarded or destroyed.

22-oz. cartons of Farm Rich mozzarella bites in a pizzeria style crust, UPC code 041322374431 with a best by date of May 19, 2014.
7-oz. cartons of Farm Rich mozzarella bites in a pizzeria style crust, UPC code 041322376916 with a best by date of May 19, 2014.
22-oz. bags of Market Day Mozzarella Bites, UPC code 041322804358 with a best by date of May 12, 2014.


Each product package above contains the establishment number "EST. 27232" or "P-27232" inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The products subject to recall were produced between Nov. 12, 2012 and Nov. 19, 2012 then distributed for retail sale nationwide. FSIS and the establishment are concerned that some product may be present in household freezers.

FSIS was notified of a multistate investigation of E. coli O121 illnesses on March 19, 2013. Food samples were collected from an ill individual in New York as part of this investigation, and tested by the New York State Department of Health Wadsworth Laboratory. At present, the cluster includes 24 cases in 15 states. A sample of a Farm Rich frozen chicken mini quesadilla product from a New York case tested positive for the outbreak strain of E. coli O121. Eight cases in Michigan, Mississippi, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Virginia report consuming Farm Rich products. FSIS is continuing to work with federal and state public health partners on this investigation, including the New York State Department of Health, New York State Department of Agriculture & Markets, Food and Drug Administration, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to ensure that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at: www.fsis.usda.gov/FSIS_Recalls/
Open_Federal_Cases/index.asp.

Many clinical laboratories do not test for non-O157 Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC), such as STEC O26, O103, O45, O111, O121 or O145 because it is harder to identify. Infection with E. coli O121 can result in dehydration, bloody diarrhea and abdominal cramps 2-8 days (3-4 days, on average) after exposure to the organism. While most people recover within a week, some develop a type of kidney failure called HUS, Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome. This condition can occur among persons of any age but is most common in children under 5-years old and older adults. Symptoms of HUS may include fever, abdominal pain, pale skin tone, fatigue, small, unexplained bruises or bleeding from the nose and mouth, decreased urination, and swelling. Persons who experience these symptoms should seek emergency medical care immediately.

Consumers with questions regarding the recall should contact the company's consumer line at (888) 220-5955 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. EST Monday through Friday or visit the company website at www.farmrich.com

Think About It

Have You Ever Imagined?

Have you ever imagined what God has planned for your life? Probably, like most of us, you've been plugging away, one day at a time, just trying to get by. But this is what God says about your future; "No one's ever seen or heard anything like this, never so much as imagined anything quite like it - what God has arranged for those who love him". (I Corinthians 2:9 Msg) Wow! Did you catch that? No one's ever seen, heard or imagined what God has arranged for those that love him. That means that for all that love God, he has promised a future and a hope.

There is a key to this promise and it has to do with those who love him. The problem is, many want the promises of God without the obedience. Jesus stated that if we loved him then we would do his will, (John 14:23). Loving him and doing his will go hand in hand, you can't have one without the other. Another thing about this promise is that it's about his plan for our life. This may mean that it may not coincide with what we had planned. And frankly speaking, what we have planned maybe very limiting to what he has planned.

One of the things that I am learning, (note that I said "am learning") that walking in the things that he has planned takes risk. Think about it for a moment. If we can't imagine what he has planned how then could it even come into our heads to do it? If it is truly beyond our reach, then it will take faith and a walk of obedience to get there. To do that means that we've got to go where we've never gone before. Sadly many, and this is for Christians, like the comfortable life of what's normal, predictable, and safe. As a people, we don't like risks and we often don't like new. But Jesus is calling us all into a life of obedience and if we are going to be followers of him, then we must go to where he is beckoning us to go. Risky? Sure it is, but is there another way? Remember this, Jesus said, "According to your faith will it be done to you", (Matt 9:29). You will only go as far as your faith will allow you to go. Think about it.

Lonny Is Trailing Behind By 91 Votes--Did you vote today?

I have no idea how Peter does it, but every Thursday he suddenly ends up nearly a hundred votes ahead of me. I am presently 91 votes behind.

It is so disappointing to return home and see that kind of spread when most of the week Peter has been trailing behind me. Especially after all the effort and constant voting my supporters have poured into this week's contest to keep me at the top.

However, I am so pleased to still be near the top and I believe my supporters can push me right back up there. Yes, I believe all of them are that good. I would love to see at least 50 more votes votes come in tonight to help close up the gap that Peter has once again created. Peter has the lead with 985, while I am at 894. This is the largest gap between positions this week. Thanks to all of you I held onto 1st place for 72 hours! So you scared him good.

I would love for my supporters to take the lead again by Friday and steal 1st away at the last minute on Saturday evening. I thank everyone for the continuous votesm encouragement and support. You all are just awesome no matter where I finish in this round. I figure if I can keep in the top three I will probably move on to the next round. I hope this cartoon has added a smile to your day, as you all have added a smile to my week.

There is a 2 day challenge of 500 votes or more by the closing of Saturday evening. We are looking at hitting 1,000 by the endo of the day, or early morning tomorrow. Thanks for breaking so many records this week alone!

Please share the post or the link. Thanks again everyone one.

Hope needs a home

This is Miss Hope. She needs someone to nudge and snuggle. She's about 3 yrs old so this is about as big as she's going to get. She came up to my husband outside about 5 months ago. She was skin and bones with scratches and cuts from her ear to her tail on one side. She came up and nudged his leg, just purring away. After the first 24 hours of calming her, getting food in her a little at a time and getting her to sleep, we set her up in our guest room. She's been there ever since. She's healed well and filled out nicely. She's been a sweet girl but she deserves a family of her own. In a couple of weeks we'll get her fixed and get her shots. We'd keep her but we've already got 9 cats and 2 dogs so we've got a pretty full house.

She lives to nudge, purr, get belly rubbies and eat. She LOVES kids and is happy just to curl up and be loved. She is litter trained and needs to be an inside only cat. She is a special needs kitty but her treatment only requires someone to spoil her a little and she gives sooooo much love back.. Hope is an HIV positive kitty which is different for cats than for humans. She can't transmit it to humans and the only way cats transmit it to other cats is through deep bite wounds. I have a little book about feline HIV. The book was written about a cat that was diagnosed with HIV at 16 yrs old. It's not expensive. I'll give you the simple recipe for the mush she gets along with regular cat food. If you're interested, contact me at moozandsqrl2001@yahoo.com and we can arrange a time for you to meet her. WARNING: It could be love at first sight.
