go. He gets along with my dog and with my other cats except my one cat who is not very nice she hates everybody. I would guess the orange kitty is about 3 or 4 months. We need to find a home for this boy asap I already have 2 cats, a dog, 10 chickens and 3 rabbits I can't take on any more pets at this time. Please send an email to Solomon's Words or call us at 544-9004. Thank you very much and remember there are places where you can have them neutered at lower prices.

Causer Announces Funding for Affordable Housing
|Rep. Martin Causer|
HARRISBURG – Rep. Martin Causer (R-Turtlepoint) today announced nearly $170,000 in funding for three affordable housing projects in the 67th Legislative District.
The funding is provided through the Pennsylvania Housing Affordability and Rehabilitation Enhancement Fund and impact fees generated by drilling in the Marcellus Shale.
“These investments will go a long way toward ensuring the availability of affordable housing to our citizens and at the same time will also support efforts to revamp and revitalize our communities,” Causer said.
The funding was awarded as follows:
· City of Bradford Second Ward Neighborhood Revitalization Project -- $20,000. The project includes the acquisition of homes and vacant lots to make way for the construction of new in-fill housing or the rehabilitation of those able to be saved. The project anticipates the construction of four new homes and one existing home.
· 57 Hawthorne Road, Bradford -- $20,000. This project involves the demolition of an existing structure to make way for the eventual development of a new duplex to be made available to low-income households.
· Potter County Homeless Prevention Program -- $129,895. The program will provide short- and medium-term assistance in the form of rental payments, security and utility deposits and utility payments in order to rapidly re-house those currently homeless or those at risk of becoming homeless. Priority will be given to households at or below 50 percent of the area median income. It is anticipated that 40 households will be assisted at an average of $1,200 per household.
The affordable housing program is administered by the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency. A total of $8.45 million is being distributed in 22 Pennsylvania counties.

| photo shows Pat Drummond, left, and her daughter Denise and their book, ‘My Grama’s Garden.’|
The Friends of Hanley Library will host “My Grama’s Garden: A Conversation with author Pat Drummond and illustrator Denise Drummond” at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 18, in the Mukaiyama University Room in the Frame-Westerberg Commons at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford.
During the event, which is free and open to the public, Pat and her daughter Denise will discuss how they came to collaborate on a six-year project, which culminated in the publication of their first children’s book, “My Grama’s Garden,” in 2011.
The program will include an informal presentation and audience question-and-answer period. Copies of “My Grama’s Garden” will be available for purchase before and after the program.
The inspiration for the book was the women's love of nature and the beauty of Pat Drummond’s Pennsylvania perennial gardens. The book, illustrated by Denise Drummond, contains exquisite, vibrant, full-page watercolor illustrations authentically depicting the many varieties of flowers, butterflies, woodland creatures and insects. The illustrations are complemented by a story written by her mother, Pat Drummond, an accomplished writer and gardener.
In June 2012, their book received the Benjamin Franklin Award for Best Children’s Picture Book by The Independent Book Publisher’s Association, and also second place for Best First book. In September of that year, “My Grama’s Garden” was awarded the silver place Moonbeam Award for Best First Book.
Pat Drummond grew up in Texas and was influenced by her mother, who wrote poetry and had her poems published in anthologies. After marriage, Pat Drummond and her husband, Don, moved to his home in Pennsylvania, where Pat received a Bachelor of Arts degree in writing from Pitt-Bradford. She has written poetry, short stories and music. This is her first children's book.
Denise Drummond began her love affair with nature at an early age while growing up in the woodlands of Pennsylvania. She draws and paints nature scenes with a special love for our national parks and wilderness areas. A self-taught portrait and landscape artist, Denise Drummond’s works are created mostly using graphite and watercolor. Her work has been shown and collected nationwide.
Denise Drummond has placed five times in the prestigious Arts for the Parks contest, placing in the top 100 in the nation. Her works were on tour of the country with the “Top 100” show, traveling to art galleries and museums for a year at a time, then to be sold to collectors around the world. Her love of nature and the lure of mountain places, led her to spend three summers in Glacier National Park, where she began a series of National Parks drawings.
Currently, she is working on completing illustrations for another book also written by her mother, titled “Grandpa Spence.” She continues to draw and paint landscapes, and has also been making panoramic giclée prints of some of her photography.

Do I Have To?
Doing what we don't want to do isn't always easy or enjoyable. Today is one of those days that I find myself doing what I would rather not be doing. I'm in a series of meetings and classes for the next several days. Some of my time is spent connecting with many whom I need to meet with. But if the truth were to be known I'd much rather be home sailing, or one of the many projects that I have waiting for me at home. The question might be asked; do I have to? I suppose I do have a choice in all of this but is it realistic to think that we should always get to do only what we want. Many times we need to do what we may not want to do.
Some in our society seem to believe that everything that we do should be pleasurable. To do something that isn’t pleasurable would seem to be foolish and unnecessary. Somewhere along the way we seem to have lost the importance of sacrifice and servant hood. We have moved, or are moving into a society of entitlement, where others owe us, and we are looking to be served rather than to serve.
Jesus had much to say about the subject of servant hood. In John 13, you will find the story of Jesus washing the feet of his disciples. It is here that he states, “I have given you an example to follow. Do as I have done to you. I tell you the truth slaves are not greater than their master. Nor is the messenger more important than the one who sends the message. Now that you know these things, God will bless you for doing them.” But it isn’t easy to always put someone else first. Taking the backseat isn’t always fun, nor is letting someone else have the glory when it really belongs to us. Perhaps we all have asked if we had to, but it is in doing this very thing that we are blessed.
When Jesus talked about loving God with all of your heart, mind, and soul, and added, to love your neighbor as yourselves, (Matt 22:37-39), he was saying to put everything above ourselves and serve God and one another. I wonder what would change in our lives if we started to practice that. Think about it.

New DEP Online Tool Speeds Pre-Application Process for Permit Applicants
As part of its continuing effort to create a more efficient permit application procedure, DEP has developed an online Permit Application Consultation Tool (PACT).
The online tool is designed to quickly and easily assist potential applicants in determining which types of environmental permits, authorizations or notifications would be needed for specific projects. Based on the user’s responses to a series of simple questions, PACT provides information on permits and other information an applicant should consider.
When the tool’s questionnaire is completed, PACT automatically submits the information and attachments to the Assistant Regional Director in the department’s appropriate regional office. This information serves as the basis for a Pre-Application Conference. At the conference, DEP staff verifies the information and discusses the needed permits or authorizations with the applicant. Pre-Application Conferences often result in a savings of time and resources—especially when multiple permits or authorizations are needed.
“This is another example of DEP’s commitment to improving efficiency without sacrificing the quality or transparency of our reviews,” Acting DEP Secretary Chris Abruzzo said. “Since the original Permit Decision Guarantee was implemented last year, DEP has resolved 66 percent of all backlogged applications. This allows us to move much more efficiently on new permit applications, ensuring that they meet their target timeframes.”
For more information, visit www.dep.state.pa.us and click on Permits, Licensing and Certifications. By clicking on the link you can access the Pre-Application Information Tool and the questionnaire.

PennDOT, State Police Participate in National Child Passenger Safety Week
Police, Safety Groups to Offer Safety Seat Checkpoints Statewide
Harrisburg – State Police and PennDOT are encouraging motorists to participate in free child passenger safety seat checkups throughout Pennsylvania as the agencies mark National Child Passenger Safety Week, Sept. 15 – 21.
In addition, Saturday, Sept. 21, 2013, has been designated as “National Seat Check Saturday.”
“I urge all parents and caregivers to get their seats checked, because using the right seat in the right position is so important to children’s safety,” PennDOT Secretary Barry J. Schoch said. “Anyone who transports children has the responsibility to make sure they’re legally and correctly secured – that’s why we work with police and safety partners to make child safety resources available year-round.”
PennDOT funds resources such as training and educational materials for 145 fitting stations across Pennsylvania, at which more than 5,000 car seats were checked last year. The checkups are designed to teach drivers the proper installation and use of child safety seats.
“Our first priority must be to protect the safety of our most precious cargo every time we get behind the wheel,” Pennsylvania State Police Lieutenant Colonel George L. Bivens said. “Traffic crashes are among the leading causes of death in Pennsylvania, and educating the public about the proper use of child safety seats plays an important role in saving lives.”
Each of the department’s troops will conduct at least one safety seat check during the week, Bivens said. The seat checks are designed to teach drivers the proper installation and use of child safety seats.
“Child safety seats will save lives, but only when they are installed and used properly,” Bivens said.
Pennsylvania law requires that children under the age of 4 ride in a federally approved car seat that is appropriate for the child's age, height and weight. Children between the ages of 4 and 8 must use a booster seat if they are no longer in a car seat.
The state’s seat belt law mandates that children ages 8 to 17 must use a seat belt, and violating this law is a primary offense. It is a secondary offense for drivers and front seat passengers age 18 and older to travel unbuckled.
Because of the potential dangers associated with air bag deployment, children ages 12 and under should always ride in a vehicle’s back seat.
The State Police Bureau of Patrol also offered the following tips:
• Read and follow the car seat and vehicle manufacturers’ instructions;
• Use the car’s seat belt to anchor the seat to the car unless you are using a child safety seat with the LATCH system;
• Fill out and return the registration card for your seat so you'll know if it is recalled because of a problem;
• Make sure the seat’s harness fits snugly; and
• Use a tether strap if the seat requires it.

Thompson Announces Rural Hospital Grant for Charles Cole Memorial Hospital
Federal funding will support medical information technology upgrades
|U.S. Representative Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson|
“Healthcare delivery to our rural communities can be challenging,” stated Rep. Thompson. “These types of grants level the playing field with our urban counterparts, and will assist Cole Memorial in upgrading their current technologies to meet the changing industry standards and better serve the people of Coudersport and the surrounding communities.”
Cole Memorial will receive approximately $7,500 that will be used to support the transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10, the new diagnosis and procedure code sets used by hospitals to group and identify patient encounters. Hospitals are required to make the transition to ICD-10 by October 1, 2014.
|Edward C. Pitchford|
In Pennsylvania, a total of 20 small and rural hospitals with fewer than 50 beds, will receive funds through the SHIP grant. The SHIP funds are initially awarded to the Pennsylvania Office of Rural Health, which provides technical assistance to hospitals throughout the commonwealth.
The Pennsylvania Office of Rural Health was established at Penn State University in 1991. It is a joint effort by the university’s College of Health and Human Development and the Penn State Outreach and Penn State Extension. The office is funded by the federal Office of Rural Health Policy of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the Pennsylvania Department of Health, and Penn State.
