Local Jobless Picture Brighter Than One Year Ago

Local Jobless Picture Brighter Than One Year Ago

Potter County Today
joblessArea jobless rates continue to decline.  Potter County’s unemployment rate fell from 7.1 in May to 6.7 percent in June. A year ago, the June rate was 9.4 percent. Labor analysts point out that the jobless rates are seasonally adjusted and require a number of qualifiers. 

For instance, they do not include a substantial number of people whose unemployment compensation benefits ran out, nor those working part-time and/or working off the books. 

The state reported that, in rounded numbers, 10 Potter County residents exhausted their unemployment benefits in June, and an estimated 20 in July. Another 10 each are expected to lose their benefits in August and September.

It's No Misunderstanding: EPA Overreach on Waters of the U.S. Rule

It's No Misunderstanding: EPA Overreach on Waters of the U.S. Rule

August 8, 2014
By Rep. Glenn Thompson (R-Penn.)

The Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) regulatory attack on our economy in central and northwestern Pennsylvania has been growing for some time. In recent months, the EPA moved forward with another power grab to redefine the agency's jurisdiction under the Clean Water Act (CWA), through a new proposed rule commonly known as the Waters of the United States (WOTUS).

http://ih.constantcontact.com/fs171/1103199740370/img/543.jpgIn Pennsylvania, Agriculture is our number one industry. As in other parts of the country, our farmers and landowners know that clean air, clean water, and being good stewards of the environment in which they live and work is fundamental to their livelihoods. Despite local prerogatives and successful state and regional initiatives to protect our natural resources the federal government once again has chosen to undercut these efforts with punitive federal regulations.

In March, the EPA issued the WOTUS proposal, alleging the rule expands neither federal authorities nor the amount of water or land under the agency's jurisdiction. The EPA has argued the action will help eliminate ambiguity over which bodies of water are jurisdictional under the law. Unfortunately, this is a far cry from the truth.

In reality, EPA's plan represents an extraordinary expansion of federal power that will further harm our economy and the rights of both states and private landowners.

Enacted in 1972, the CWA was created as a partnership between the states and the federal EPA, in order to better manage identified pollution sources, through a range of pollution control programs such as setting wastewater standards. The scope of the law is limited to "navigable waters" and for the first time it made it unlawful to discharge any pollutant into these bodies, unless a permit is obtained.

The CWA was never intended to impinge upon states' authority as the primary managers of water resources within their borders. Additionally, the law was never intended to regulate smaller noncontiguous bodies of water such as streams, ditches, ponds, and creek beds, which would impose an unnecessary burden on economic activity.

Unfortunately, that's exactly what EPA has proposed.

Despite Supreme Court rulings interpreting the regulatory scope of the CWA more narrowly than what the federal government has asserted, the EPA's new rule moves in the opposite direction. In fact, essentially all waters in the country could potentially be subject to regulation and permitting approval by the federal government under the EPA's proposed rule.

When the WOTUS rule was released by EPA, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) issued what is known as an "Interpretive Rule" (IR) on the proposal. This IR went into effect immediately - and without any public comment - and named 56 typical agricultural practices that are to be exempt from the WOTUS rule. The IR appears to offer our a permit exemption for normal farming, ranching, and silvicultural activities, if, and only if, individuals comply with conservation guidelines which until now have been completely voluntary.

The Obama Administration and the EPA have argued the WOTUS rule and the IR are intended to eliminate ambiguity and offer greater protections for states, farmers and landowners, when in fact, they create new regulatory burdens, more ambiguity, and less certainty.

EPA Chief Gina McCarthy last month characterized the growing opposition to the WOTUS rule as "ludicrous" and "silly," and recently summarized the backlash as a "growing list of misunderstandings".

It's no misunderstanding. The EPA's WOTUS rule is a historic power grab that poses a fundamental threat to our economy and way of life in Pennsylvania and for communities across the country. Unfortunately, the only thing ludicrous is how EPA continues to believe a punitive one-size-fits-all approach to environmental stewardship is the only way forward.

ROUTE 255 IMPROVEMENTS CONTINUE IN SAINT MARYS

Route 255 Improvements Continue in Saint Marys
PennDOT issues update for week of Aug. 11

Saint Marys – Work to improve a section of Route 255 in the city of Saint
Marys is continuing as we move through summer. The project stretches from the
Tractor Supply Co. intersection to Route 120/State Street in Saint Marys. Once the
project completes this fall, travel along this section of Route 255 will be
smoother and more efficient.

Activity the week of Aug. 11 will include:

• The contractor will begin work on Monday at 7 a.m. and continue through
Thursday afternoon. Work will be performed during daytime hours only.

• Route 255 will continue to be restricted to one northbound lane between
Random Road and Mill Street and one southbound lane between Railroad Street
and Random Road. This traffic pattern will remain in place 24-hours per-day
until further notice.

• Vine Street will continue to be closed between Route 255 (South Saint
Marys Street) and Chestnut Street. Motorists are to follow the signed detour
route. This portion of Vine Street will remain closed until further notice.

• The contractor will continue with installation of a retaining wall along
Route 255 near Vine Street.

• During daytime hours, the contractor will be installing storm drainage
along Route 255.

• During daytime hours, the contractor will be working on driveways on the
west side of Route 255.

• The contractor will begin grading for sidewalk along Route 255 near Vine
Street.

• The contractor will continue grading the northbound lanes on Route 255.

• During the daytime hours, the contractor will be removing old signal
poles and installing conduit for new traffic signals.

• The contractor will begin placing topsoil and seeding areas along the
western edge of Route 255.

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 to 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.

Reminder: PennDOT Partners with Ag Progress Days to advise equipment transporters of road restrictions Width restrictions in effect on numerous projects

Reminder: PennDOT Partners with Ag Progress Days to advise equipment transporters of road restrictions Width restrictions in effect on numerous projects

State College – With PSU’s Ag Progress Days scheduled Aug. 12–14, PennDOT is advising equipment transporters of roadway restrictions they may encounter traveling to and from the event site. The event is held on the Penn State Research Farms along West Pine Grove Road in Pennsylvania Furnace.

Motorists should be aware of the following local restrictions:

• 12-foot width restrictions on Route 220 between Avis and Lock Haven in Clinton County.
• 10-foot width restrictions on two separate projects along Route 322 east of Boalsburg in Centre County.
• 10-foot width restrictions on Route 64 in the village of Nittany in Centre County.
• Due to 10-foot width restrictions and heavy traffic volumes, PennDOT advises use of the Blue detour on Route 22/322 in the Lewistown area. Westbound drivers will exit Route 22/322 at the Business 22 exit and follow Route 3006 (Juniata Street), Route 103, Route 3002 (4th Street), Business Route 22 and onto Route 22/522 at the Industrial Park interchange, re-entering 22/322 at the State College on-ramp. Eastbound drivers will exit 22/322 at the 22/522 interchange following that road to the Industrial Park off-ramp. They will then follow Business 22, Route 3002 (4th Street), Route 103, and Route 3006 (Juniata Street), re-entering Route 22/322 at the western end of the Lewistown Narrows. The Blue detour is also marked with Blue Detour signage.

Department of Health Reports First West Nile Virus Human Case of 2014

Department of Health Reports First West Nile Virus Human Case of 2014
Pennsylvanians Reminded to Take Steps to Avoid Infection

Pennsylvania’s first probable human case of West Nile Virus (WNV) infection in 2014 has been detected. A Philadelphia County man was hospitalized due to WNV. He has since recovered.

The departments of Health and Environmental Protection strongly recommend that all residents minimize their exposure to mosquitoes.

“Detecting the first human case serves as a great reminder for Pennsylvanians to take the proper precautions when they are outside or near areas where mosquitoes are prevalent,” Secretary of Health Michael Wolf said. “There are some simple steps you can take to protect yourself and your loved ones from mosquito-related diseases.”

Although mosquitoes can bite at any time of day or night, they are most active at dawn and dusk. When outdoors, people can avoid mosquito bites by properly and consistently using DEET-containing insect repellants and covering exposed skin with lightweight clothing. To keep mosquitoes from entering a home, make sure window and door screens are in place and are in good condition.

Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) conducts regular surveillance and control to manage mosquito populations around the state. So far, DEP has detected WNV-infected mosquitoes in 32 counties. However, it is likely that WNV is present in other areas as well.

“As always, we encourage Pennsylvanians to take caution and reduce their risk for mosquito bites,” DEP Secretary E. Christopher Abruzzo said. “Using a personal insect repellant or staying indoors during dawn and dusk will help prevent exposure to mosquitoes.”

The mosquitoes that transmit WNV breed in areas with standing and stagnant water. These areas can include urban catch basins, clogged gutters, discarded tires, poorly maintained swimming pools, flower pots and other types of plastic containers.

Simple steps to eliminate standing water around the home include:

Remove tin cans, plastic containers, ceramic pots, discarded tires or any object that could collect standing water. Drill holes in the bottom of recycling containers left outdoors.

Have roof gutters cleaned every year, particularly if the leaves from nearby trees have a tendency to clog the drains.

Turn over plastic wading pools and wheelbarrows when not in use.

Do not let water stagnate in birdbaths.

Aerate ornamental pools, or stock them with fish.

Clean and chlorinate swimming pools, and remove standing water from pool covers.

Use landscaping to eliminate standing water that collects on your property.

Treat standing water that cannot be eliminated with Bti products which are sold at outdoor supply, home improvement and other stores. Bti is a natural product that kills mosquito larvae, but is safe for people, pets, aquatic life and plants.

DEP will continue to survey affected communities to monitor WNV. When necessary, DEP will conduct larval and adult control activities to reduce the risk to human health. These efforts will continue through fall.

For a fact sheet on WNV, including symptoms, please visit the Department of Health’s webpage, www.health.state.pa.us, and click on “West Nile Virus Fact Sheet” under “What’s Hot.”

For more information, including current test results for mosquitoes, birds and horses, visit www.westnile.state.pa.us and click on the Pennsylvania map for WNV data tables, or call 877-PA HEALTH.

EXECUTIVE ORDER SIGNED 16 MAR 2012 BY PRESIDENT

THIS ORDER GIVES THE PRESIDENT EMPEROR-LIKE POWER TO DECLARE MARTIAL LAW FOR WHATEVER REASON HE DESIRES.

NEVER BEFORE IN OUR HISTORY HAS A PRESIDENT CLAIMED THIS KIND OF POWER WITHOUT AUTHORITY FROM CONGRESS. NOT EVEN DURING THE DARKEST DAYS OF WWII.

THE STATE OF OUR REPUBLIC AND OUR LIBERTIES IS IN MORAL JEOPARDY.

THE LEFTEST ELITES AND OUR COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF HAVE AN AGENDA WHICH IS COMPLETELY AGAINST EVERYTHING OUR REPUBLIC STANDS FOR AND ALL THINGS THAT MAKE US THE GREAT NATION WE ARE.

IT MUST BE FOUGHT NOW BY OUR PATRIOTS, RALLY TOGETHER TO SAVE THIS NATION FROM THESE MARTIAL LAW POWERS CLAIMED BY OBAMA. CURRENTLY OUR COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF UNDER HIS GUIDANCE HAS CREATED ENOUGH SCANDALS HERE AND AROUND THE WORLD FOR OUR CONGRESS TO BE AT A TOTAL GRIDLOCK. THIS IS SETTING UP THE PREFECT TIMING FOR HIM TO DECLARE MARTIAL LAW. AS HE HAS ALREADY STATED HE WILL BY- PAST CONGRESS WITH HIS PEN AND PHONE. HE HAS PROVED THAT HE WILL LIE TO THE WORLD TO GET WHAT HE WANTS IN MANY SPEECHES.

THE BIG QUESTION IS WILL OUR NATION (BOTH CIVILIAN AND MILITARY) STAND BEHIND A MAN WILLING TO DESTROY OUR CONSTITUTION AND OUR REPUBLIC OR REMOVE HIM FROM OFFICE.

PRAYER HELPS BUT WE ALSO NEED WARRIORS TO ASSIST IN SOLVING THESE PROBLEMS. ALONG WITH GOD'S HELP, WE CAN TAKE BACK OUR GREAT REPUBLIC. GOD HAS GIVEN US OVER THE PAST FOUR YEARS MANNY BLESSINGS AND WE HAVE FAILED TO USE THEM WISELY TO BECOME THE LEADER OF THE WORLD. NEW SOURCES OF ENERGY SUCH AS OIL, GAS AND COAL FIELDS. WITH THESE EXPORTS ALONE WE COULD BECOME THE BEST PROVIDER OF ENERGY TO ALL THE POORER COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD.

Regeneca Worldwide a division of VivaCeuticals, Inc.

DMAA is also known as 1,3-dimethylamylamine, methylhexanamine, or geranium extract. DMAA is commonly used as a stimulant, pre-workout, and weight loss ingredient in dietary supplement products.

DEP Awards Grants to Restore, Protect Pennsylvania’s Coastal Zones

DEP Awards Grants to Restore, Protect Pennsylvania’s Coastal Zones

The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has awarded more than $750,000 in annual coastal zone management grants to organizations dedicated to protecting and preserving Pennsylvania’s coastal zones along Lake Erie and the Delaware Estuary.

“These grants play an important role to ensure the protection of our coastal waters,” DEP Secretary E. Christopher Abruzzo said. “This money will not only improve coastal waters, but provide additional recreational and educational opportunities for nearby residents.”

The annual grants were awarded to 22 non-profit and government organizations for 25 projects in counties that border Pennsylvania’s coastal zones or have a direct impact on water quality in those areas.

Coastal zones and adjacent shore land face increasing pressure from development, erosion, biodiversity losses and pollution. Pennsylvania’s two coastal areas are a 112-mile stretch along the Delaware Estuary and 76 miles along Lake Erie.

Coastal zone management grants support programs that measure the impact of various pollution sources, improve public access, preserve habitats and educate the public about the benefits of the state’s coastal zones.

The Delaware Estuary coastal zone is in Bucks, Delaware and Philadelphia counties and contains islands, marshes and the shore lands of tributaries that are affected by ocean tides. The Delaware Estuary is considered one of the largest freshwater ports in the world. The Lake Erie coastal zone is in Erie County and includes several major tributaries’ shorelines.

These grants are largely funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and Administered by DEP’s Coastal Resources Management Program. NOAA is a federal agency under the Department of Commerce with programs in each state that work to inform residents of the changing impacts of weather and water resources. In Pennsylvania, those programs include the National Ocean Service and National Weather Service.

The Coastal Resources Management Program is now accepting applications for 2015. Non-profit organizations, schools and universities, local government organizations, authorities and state agencies are all encouraged to apply until the current grant round closes on Oct. 22, 2014, at 4 p.m.

Water Emergency In Austin Boro


Maximum Speed Limit Increases to 70 MPH Monday on Two Interstates

Maximum Speed Limit Increases to 70 MPH Monday on Two Interstates

Clearfield – Motorists are advised that the maximum speed limit will be raised to 70 mph on two roadways as sign installations begin on Monday, Aug. 11.

Following engineering analysis, PennDOT is piloting the 70-mph maximum speed limit on two interstates:
• 88 miles of Interstate 80 from Exit 101 (DuBois) in Clearfield County to mile marker 189 in Clinton County; and
• 16 miles of Interstate 380 from Interstate 84 to north of Exit 8 (Tobyhanna Interchange) in Monroe County.

PennDOT will use data collected from the pilot locations while evaluating other 65-mph roadway sections for potential 70-mph implementation in the spring or summer next year. Roadway sections that can safely accommodate the increased speed could start being signed soon after the evaluations are complete.

The 70-mph speed limit was implemented on the Pa. Turnpike from Blue Mountain (Interchange 201) to Morgantown (Interchange 298) on July 22.

Passed last fall by the General Assembly and signed by Governor Tom Corbett, Act 89 of 2013 enabled PennDOT and the Pa. Turnpike Commission to raise the maximum speed limit on freeways within Pennsylvania to 70 mph. The plan invests an additional $2.4 billion to $2.5 billion into Pennsylvania’s transportation assets by its fifth year.
