Rep. Causer: Remembering Pearl Harbor Attack


Corbett should fire energy czar Henderson

Corbett should fire energy czar Henderson

Harrisburg – John Hanger today called on Governor Corbett to fire his “energy czar” Patrick Henderson.

“In a comment to StateImpact, Patrick Henderson demonstrated his ignorance and denial of climate science and smeared a distinguished Penn State professor, Dr. Michael Mann,” said Hanger. “Henderson’s willful, ideology-driven ignorance of science and his personal attack on Dr. Mann and Penn State make him unsuited to direct Pennsylvania’s energy policy. The governor should fire him.”

“In his comment, Henderson dredged up a collection of right-wing fantasies about climate change. The StateImpact article provides a useful fact check to Henderson’s unfounded assertions that expose the deep level of his denial,” said Hanger. “But the personal attack on Dr. Mann crosses the line of what is acceptable behavior from a top advisor to the governor.”

Dr. Mann has been the subject of a vicious smear campaign by right-wing Tea Partiers. Every investigation of Dr. Mann’s work has validated its integrity and supported his findings that the climate is warming and humans are the most significant contributor to climate change.

Henderson’s attack follows those of former Virginia Attorney General and defeated gubernatorial candidate, Ken Cuccinelli, who accused Dr. Mann of fraud and launched an official investigation. The Virginia Supreme Court ultimately ordered Cuccinelli to stop the investigation. Cucinnelli’s ideology-driven inquisition of Dr. Mann has been cited as a factor in his defeat in the Virginia’s governor’s race.

“The Commonwealth’s energy policy is in the hands of someone who discounts science and engages in hateful personal attacks,” concluded Hanger. “Pennsylvanians deserve better than that. The governor should fire him and set Pennsylvania on course to develop an energy policy based on science.”

###
Democratic candidate for Governor of Pennsylvania John Hanger is widely regarded as one of the most insightful and best informed progressive public policy experts in the state. Formerly a public-interest lawyer advocating on behalf of low-income families, John is nationally recognized as a leading authority on clean energy development and environmental protection. He served both Governors Casey and Rendell in key positions: first for Bob Casey as Commissioner of the Public Utilities Commission, where he successfully fought to cap electric rates to save Pennsylvania ratepayers billions and for two years as Secretary of the Department of Environmental Protection in the Rendell Administration. Throughout his career in public service, John has embodied the essence of his campaign slogan "Policy first, politics second."

Johnson, Psychology Professor, Announces Retirement

John Johnson
Johnson, Psychology Professor, Announces Retirement

DuBOIS – After 32 years of teaching and research, and dozens of published articles and awards,
Penn State DuBois Professor of Psychology John Johnson will retire at the end of this semester.

Johnson has taught at Penn State DuBois since 1981, earning his full professorship in 1995. He completed a research fellowship at the University of Bielefeld, Germany. He was previously an instructor at Johns Hopkins Evening College, and Towson State University. He is a member of several professional organizations, such as the American Psychological Association, and the European Association of Personality Psychology. Johnson completed his undergraduate work at Penn State, and earned his masters and Ph.D. in psychology at John Hopkins University.

Johnson has published numerous papers in academic journals. Last year he and a group of coauthors published the book Graphing Jane Austen: The Evolutionary Basis of Literary Meaning, which examines literature's affects on human psychology. In 2011, the Dutch IT company iTUDE released a personality test app for the iPhone and iPad that Johnson designed.

Recently, Johnson's colleagues gathered to wish him well and celebrate his career. At that retirement party Johnson expressed his appreciation for the relationships and experiences he's had while at the campus. He said, "What I really want to emphasize is the gratitude I feel about the opportunity to be here."

As a Penn State graduate, Johnson had a dream in graduate school of becoming a Penn State professor. "I have always been a Penn Stater and I always will be a Penn Stater," Johnson said. "By becoming a Penn State professor, I fulfilled my most precious career dream. How many people can say that? I'm so lucky."

Addressing the colleagues, past and present, who worked alongside him and supported him through the years, Johnson said, "Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for being part of my dream come true."


GAME COMMISSION URGES PARTICIPATION IN CHRISTMAS BIRD COUNT

GAME COMMISSION URGES PARTICIPATION IN CHRISTMAS BIRD COUNT
Volunteers sought for annual citizen-science survey.

Pennsylvania Game Commission officials are urging wildlife enthusiasts to join the tens of thousands of volunteers throughout the United States in the Audubon Society’s 114th Annual Christmas Bird Count, which will take place Dec. 14 through Jan. 5.

The Christmas Bird Count is the longest-running citizen-science survey in the world, and the data collected through the count allows researchers, conservation biologists, and other interested individuals to study the long-term health and status of bird populations across North America.

Local counts will occur on one day between Dec. 14 and Jan. 5. Volunteers can pick the most convenient circle, or participate in more than one count. There is a specific methodology to the CBC, but everyone can participate. The count takes place within “Count Circles,” which focus on specific geographical areas. Each circle is led by a “Count Compiler,” who is an experienced birdwatcher, enabling beginning birders to learn while they assist.

Those who live within the boundaries of a Count Circle can even stay at home and report the birds that visit their backyard feeders.

In either case, the first step is to locate a Count Circle that’s seeking participants and contact the local Count Compiler on Audubon’s website, www.audubon.org, to find out how you can volunteer.

There is no longer a fee to participate in the Christmas Bird Count.

Dan Brauning, who heads up the Game Commission’s wildlife diversity division, said the Christmas Bird Count makes an indispensible contribution to conservation because it monitors bird species that spend winters in Pennsylvania.

“Some of these species are much easier to count or monitor in winter because their breeding ground is so far north in areas where there are few people or roads to give access to habitat,” Brauning said.

The rusty blackbird, for instance, migrates from the boreal taiga forests of Canada and Alaska to the southeastern United States in winter, Brauning said. Pennsylvania is on the northern edge of its winter range, and it sometimes turns up in the Christmas Bird Count, he said.

Hawks also are more easily counted in winter, Brauning said.

Brauning said the Christmas Bird Count is a good way to introduce beginners to bird identification. It is much easier in winter to find birds through your binoculars, he said.

“Birds are easier to spot because the trees lack the leaves that hide birds from your eyes in spring and summer,” Brauning said. “And there are fewer bird species around in winter than at other times of year, so it is easier to learn bird species identification. In fact, many birders got started in this hobby in winter in a car with more experienced birders on a Christmas count.”

Expanding Higher Education Opportunities in Rural PA


The House Education Committee will hold an informational meeting next week on legislation I introduced to create a rural regional community college pilot program in our area.

A 2011 study by the Legislative Budget and Finance Committee noted the growing importance of community colleges in meeting the demand to provide education and training necessary in today’s economy. However, it also found that 25 of 26 rural counties in Pennsylvania have no community colleges and that rural youth typically pay twice the tuition of youth from areas with a community college.
                                   
House Bill 1701, and its companion legislation, Senate Bill 1000 sponsored by Sen. Joe Scarnati, were introduced in response to the findings of this study with the goal of creating a pilot program to expand affordable higher education options for students of all ages in the 11-county region of northwest and northcentral Pennsylvania.

The meeting is scheduled for 9 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 11, at the State Capitol. The meeting will be streamed live on my website at RepCauser.com.

Child Identity Theft Legislation Signed Into Law


 
Individuals who are convicted of stealing the identity of a minor will now receive a stricter sentence under a new law signed by Gov. Tom Corbett.

Act 97 of 2013 makes children under the age of 18 part of a protected class of victims for the crime of identity theft, along with individuals age 60 or over or those who are care-dependent.

In 2011, the Federal Trade Commission identified child identity theft as a growing problem with an estimated 142,000 instances of this taking place each year. The crime often goes unnoticed until the child reaches adulthood and applies for a loan or credit card. By that time, a great deal of damage has been done to the
individual’s credit record, and it can take years to rectify the problem.

Galeton Rotary Club News

Galeton Rotary Club News

By Henry Lush

The Galeton Rotary Club met on Thursday December 5 at the Ox Yoke Inn with president Doug Reeves presiding.

The club voted to contribute $2,400. To the Galeton Area School shop department for the purchase of new shop equipment.

This amount along with a $5,000. Donation by the Gale Foundation earlier this Fall will allow the shop teacher, Andy Meyers ,to purchase a much needed new piece of equipment for the shop. These funds are made possible by the Rotary Woodsmen's Show.

The club also voted to contract with Burdick Technologies to develop a new web page for the club to include 2014 Woodsmen Show activities.

The Rotary Christmas Star shines brightly over Galeton as it has since 1951. The star is a community tradition that is looked forward to by many which signals the start of the Advent Season. The club recognized and thanked Rotarian Tony Adami for replacing the burned out bulbs and lighting the star. Climbing up the steep hill then climbing up and on the star is a daunting task. We often take this for granted, but it is because of Tony the star is lit each year. Tony has been faithfully doing this for many years.

Next Thursday the club Christmas party will be held at the Pine Creek Inn.

Hanger says don’t fall for Corbett’s Medicaid charade

Hanger says don’t fall for Corbett’s Medicaid charade

Harrisburg – John Hanger today said that Governor Corbett’s cynical proposal to the federal government for Medicaid expansion is designed to be rejected.

“No one should be fooled by Corbett’s Medicaid charade,” said Hanger. “If Corbett had done the right thing and just said “yes” to the federal government’s offer to pay for Medicaid expansion, starting on January 1st 700,000 uninsured Pennsylvanians would finally have access to decent health care.”

“Because Corbett has refused to expand Medicaid, Pennsylvania loses $10 million each and every day that could be used to provide health care coverage and to support thousands of health care jobs,” continued Hanger. “What’s worse, the governor absolutely knows that his proposal is full of poison pills, like the requirement to seek work, which will compel the federal government to reject it.”

“I will accept the Medicaid expansion on day one of my administration. It’s the right thing for uninsured Pennsylvania families, including the families of many of our veterans, and the right thing for Pennsylvania’s economy,” concluded Hanger.
###
Democratic candidate for Governor of Pennsylvania John Hanger is widely regarded as one of the most insightful and best informed progressive public policy experts in the state. Formerly a public-interest lawyer advocating on behalf of low-income families, John is nationally recognized as a leading authority on clean energy development and environmental protection. He served both Governors Casey and Rendell in key positions: first for Bob Casey as Commissioner of the Public Utilities Commission, where he successfully fought to cap electric rates to save Pennsylvania ratepayers billions and for two years as Secretary of the Department of Environmental Protection in the Rendell Administration. Throughout his career in public service, John has embodied the essence of his campaign slogan "Policy first, politics second."

Pennsylvanians Urged to Join ‘Project Blue Light’ in Honor of Fallen Officers

Pennsylvanians Urged to Join ‘Project Blue Light’ in Honor of Fallen Officers

Harrisburg – The Pennsylvania State Police is asking people once again this year to display a blue light in their home or office window during the holiday season to remember fallen law enforcement officers and their survivors.

“The color blue is symbolic of peace and by displaying blue lights, you will show that you support America’s Peacekeepers,’’ said State Police Commissioner Frank Noonan. “Any law enforcement officer passing by the blue light on a dark, cold winter’s night may be warmed by the kindness it implies.”

Since the Pennsylvania State Police was founded in 1905, 94 members have been killed in the line of duty.

The most recent death occurred on Oct. 4, 2012, when Trooper First Class Blake T. Coble’s patrol car was struck by a tractor-trailer truck at a Beaver County intersection. Coble, who was 47 years old, is survived by his widow and two children.

“During the holiday season we are asking citizens and businesses to include at least one blue light in their holiday window decorations to show support to our active officers and honor the heroes who have been killed in the line of duty,” Noonan said.

Project Blue Light was developed by Concerns of Police Survivors Inc. (COPS), a nonprofit organization based in Camdenton, Mo., which represents more than 15,000 families of officers killed in the line of duty.

Think About It

The Rear View Mirror

Not many spend much time looking in the rear view mirror while they're driving forward. Yet it is always good to check it now and then to see what's coming up behind you. I would also suppose that many don't consider looking backward as they plow forward through life. This can be a dreadful mistake.

Did you know that history has a habit of repeating itself? A simple example of this is found in families. You've heard it said that fruit doesn't fall far from the tree; well this is a simple example of history repeating itself in families. But it can also repeat itself in our own lives. The problem is that we often don't look backward before we move forward. Confused? Let me try to explain.

It is often said that our past is a good predictor of our future. Although this doesn't have to be so, it often is. Why? Let me simply that it is because we don't look at our past in a way that we can make course corrections for our future. Looking back over our pasts can be a great way of learning. The mistakes we've made, the attitudes we've had, and the behavior that we've exhibited can all be changed, if we choose to. Looking backward can be a way of reflecting on what our future may hold. We can have the opportunity to ask ourselves if we want to continue on the same path we've been traveling, or if we want to make a change. Change is wonderful, but we will also find that our old habits die-hard. Learning from our past means that we have to make a consecrated effort to change direction to get to where we really want to go.

I've learned, and am still learning, that I have control of my destiny. Although it's true that I can't control what happens to me, I can control how I deal and respond to it. It's the same with my past. I might not be able to change my past, but I certainly have the ability to change my future. The choice is ultimately mine, but it will take looking in the rear view mirror as I go. By doing this on a regular basis we each will have a better chance of having a more positive outcome for our future. Think about it.

Penn State DuBois to Offer Free Math Course for Adults

Penn State DuBois to Offer Free Math Course for Adults

DuBois – Penn State DuBois, in conjunction with the Central Intermediate Unit #10 (CIU #10), will offer a free course in mathematics, beginning in January, for adults who want to brush up on their basic skills.

This refresher course is intended for any adult who wants to improve math skills to help further their education, or simply to advance their abilities for use in everyday life. For those who have considered enrolling, or reenrolling in college, the course will prepare them for math classes required in most degree programs.

"This is a great opportunity for people who want to update their math skills," said Adult Student and Veteran Services Coordinator Sueann Doran. "What they learn here can really give them an edge if they choose to enroll in college; or they can simply come away from this with a better knowledge that they can apply to their day-to-day lives." Doran explained that there is no obligation to enroll in additional courses for those who take advantage of this free opportunity.

Students in the course will receive an assessment of their math skills at the beginning, and another assessment at the end to determine how much they learned.

The math improvement course is sponsored by CIU #10, one of 29 regional education delivery organizations in Pennsylvania.

Pennsylvania's Intermediate Units are funded by the Department of Education and local school districts. They can provide special education services, student counseling services, staff continuing education opportunities, and program planning assistance to the public and non-public schools.

Space is limited for this math improvement program. Classes will meet from 6:00 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursday beginning January 14, and ending on May 1, in room 204 of the DEF Building at Penn State DuBois. A refundable $50 deposit for text books is required, and due on the first day of class.

To register, or for more information, call the Clearfield Development Center for Adults at 814-765-8118, or the Penn State DuBois Office for Adult Student and Veteran Services at 814-375-4772.

Update for Route 255 Project in Saint Marys, Week of Dec. 9

Update for Route 255 Project in Saint Marys, Week of Dec. 9

Saint Marys – Work to improve a section of Route 255 in the city of Saint Marys continues as colder weather sets in. The project stretches from the Tractor Supply Co. intersection to Route 120/State Street in Saint Marys. Work this year is concentrating on the section between Wendy’s and Satterlee & Sons. Once the project completes in late summer 2014, travel along this section of Route 255 will be smoother and more efficient.

Activity the week of Dec. 9 will include:

• The contractor will begin work on Monday morning at 7:00 a.m. and continue through Thursday. All work will be performed during daytime hours.
• The contractor will be repairing the traffic signal at the Tractor Supply intersection. Stay alert for different lane closures in this area.
• Route 255 will be restricted to one lane in each direction between State Street (Route 120) and Vine Street for the installation of water lines and sanitary sewer lines.
• Route 255 northbound will be restricted to one lane between Jeep Road and Pistner Road for installation of guide rail at Pistner Road.

All work is weather and schedule dependent. Motorists are advised to watch for slow-moving and stopped vehicles through the entire work zone. Motorists are advised to be cautious when traveling through the work zone and should obey the posted speed limit.

Overall work includes pavement repair, drainage improvements, addition of a right-turn lane for Route 255 northbound traffic at Vine Street, re-alignment of the Arch Street intersection, a right turn lane on Route 120 east for traffic heading south on Route 255, and other construction items. Dave Gutelius Excavating Inc. of Mifflinburg is the contractor on this $12.8 million project.

Ten appointed to PA Wilds Artisan Trail Advisory Committee

Ten appointed to PA Wilds Artisan Trail Advisory Committee

Ten men and women have been appointed to serve on a newly formed Advisory Committee to help shape the PA Wilds Artisan Trail program going forward.

The PA Wilds Artisan Trail Advisory Committee replaces the less formal “Artisan Workgroup,” which since 2006 brought together various stakeholders to help get the Artisan Trail off the ground.

“The artisan workgroup was a great resource, but as the trail program has grown in popularity and complexity we needed a more structured set up,” said Tataboline Enos, who oversees the program. “The Trail has doubled in size in the last two years, so we wanted the organizational side to evolve with that. The Advisory Committee will provide a great way to get regular feedback from within the membership on how things are working and how the program can improve.”

The initial Advisory Committee was appointed; future seats will be filled through an application to the committee and a vote by sitting members. Terms run three years and are staggered.

The founding committee consists of: Abbi Peters, ECCOTA; Brandi Hanes, Elk Country Visitor Center/KECA; Joe Lanich, Laughing Owl Press; Jody Fresco, Gateway Lodge; Merry Ryding, PA Route 6 Coordinator; Doug Firestone, Firestone Forge; Tina Johns Solak, Cameron County Artisan Center; Steve Getz, Station Gallery; Marilyn Blackmore, Art in the Wilds; and Stephanie Distler, Artisan.

“Most of these people are longtime members of the trail, the artisan workgroup or both,” Enos said. “Many have earned ‘Champions of the PA Wilds’ awards and all have demonstrated a deep commitment to their communities and to revitalization efforts in the Pennsylvania Wilds. Together the group brings a wide variety of experience to the table – in the arts, business, licensing, events, education and managing other membership programs. I’m very excited to work with them.”

In addition to the 10 appointees, Potter County Education Council Executive Director Bob Veilleux, one of the program’s founders, will serve on the Advisory Committee in an ex officio role. DCNR PA Wilds Director Meredith Hill will serve as the trail’s DCNR Liaison.

To learn more about the Advisory Committee’s members, or the group’s role, visit the "Trail Leadership" link at www.pawildsartisans.com
