'Can't Get It Right' - Brooklyn James [OFFICIAL VIDEO]

SMSGT (Ret.) James (Jim) Milton Doan, age 74, Port Allegany Graduate

SMSGT (Ret.) James (Jim) Milton Doan
SMSGT (Ret.) James (Jim) Milton Doan, age 74, and late of Illinois, died November 1, 2014 after a long battle with heart disease. 

The son of Clarence Doan and Ella Guthrie, Jim grew up in Port Allegany and graduated PAHS in 1959.

Vietnam War Veteran
Jim was a veteran of the Vietnam War, and served twenty nine years in the Unites States Air Force, where he earned numerous medals and commendations, including the Vietnam Civil Actions Medal, Vietnam Campaign Medal, Air Force Commendation Medal with 6 Oak Leaf Clusters, Distinguished Service Award with four Oak Leaf Clusters, USAF PME Graduation Medal, Air Force Overseas Short Tour Service Medal, Air Force Overseas Long Tour Service Medal and the Military Training Instructor Ribbon.

The discipline and patriotism he learned in the Air Force never left him and thus following his military retirement, he devoted the rest of his life to Freemasonry and ultimately as a Master Mason he was welcomed into the Scottish Rite. Services will be held in Arlington National Cemetery where he will be buried with full military honors.

Jim is survived by two daughters, Wendy Eileen Davis (Illinois) and Deborah Rose Doan-Lopez (NC). He also leaves behind five grandchildren: Kylie Eileen Smith, Lacey Mae Smith, Chase Lauren Mingee, McKenzie Grace Doan and Karsyn Davis; two sisters: Elizabeth (Betty) Larkin (Bedford, Ohio) and Barbara (Barb) Hansen (Erie, PA). 

Jim was preceded in death by a Brother Clarence (Buddy) Doan and his parents, Clarence and Ella.

Senator Toomey, Pennsylvania Congressional Delegation Members Urge Federal Agencies to Abandon Controversial Waters of the U.S. Rule

Senator Toomey, Pennsylvania Congressional Delegation Members Urge Federal Agencies to Abandon Controversial Waters of the U.S. Rule

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Representative Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson, along with U.S. Senator Pat Toomey and eight additional Members of the Pennsylvania Delegation in the U.S. House of Representatives, today voiced strong concerns with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ (USACE) proposed “waters of the United States” (WOTUS) rule that would dramatically expand the scope of federal authority over water and land uses in the United States.

The letter was submitted today to EPA and USACE ahead of the closing of the public comment period, which is midnight on Friday, November 14. In the comments, the Members contend the rule jeopardizes Pennsylvania’s ability to manage its own water resources and would impose devastating impacts upon a wide range of economic activities across the state.

“The proposed rule is of great concern to the citizens of Pennsylvania because it will have significant impacts upon the commonwealth’s economy and ability to continue regulation, per the Clean Water Act,” the letter states. “The rule as proposed disregards the long-standing federalist approach empowered within the CWA and would expand federal jurisdiction far beyond the long-held intent of Congress and numerous Supreme Court rulings.”

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. The Members stated the prosed rule is a direct threat to the long-standing federalist approach empowered within the CWA.

“Through a strong state-federal regulatory partnership that provides adequate flexibility to address water quality while accounting for local and regional variations and conditions, Pennsylvania has demonstrated a successful track record of improving and protecting the ecological health of its waters,” the Members wrote. “The proposed rule fails to clearly define where the federal government’s jurisdiction stops, which is a fundamental threat to the CWA’s state-federal partnership and poses devastating impacts on Pennsylvania’s ability to manage its own water resources effectively.”

As the comments state, “Due to the fundamental flaws within the proposed WOTUS rule, we urge the Agencies to immediately vacate the rule and begin to address, within their statutory authority, the underlying programs prior to any further rulemaking attempts.”

The Members signing today’s letter include U.S. Senator Pat Toomey and U.S. Representatives Glenn Thompson (PA-05), Joe Pitts (PA-16), Jim Gerlach (PA-06), Tim Murphy (PA-18), Tom Marino (PA-10), Lou Barletta (PA-11), Mike Kelly (PA-03), Scott Perry (PA-04), and Keith Rothfus (PA-12).

Letter To The Editors...TRICARE FOR LIFE FOR THOSE OVER 65 YEARS OLD

Opinion
TRICARE FOR LIFE DRUG PROGRAM STARTING 1 JAN 2015.

BEGINNING 1 JAN 2015 YOU WILL HAVE THREE OPTIONS HOW YOU RECEIVE YOUR VA. DRUGS. 
1. THRU THE MAIL FROM YOUR VA HOSPITAL. 
2. DRIVE TO YOUR NEAREST VA FACILITY AND GO TO A DOCTOR, HAVE HIM PRESCRIBE YOUR MEDICINES AND GET THEM FILLED AT THEIR PHARMACY. 
3. SHOW CAUSE WHY THIS IS A HARD SHIP ON YOU AND RECEIVE A WAVIER FROM EXPRESS SCRIPT SO YOU ARE ALLOWED TO USE YOUR LOCAL DRUG STORE SUCH AS WALMART.

GO ON LINE TO MY TRICARE / EXPRESS SCRIPT AND CHECK IT OUT. 

I FOUND OUT THRU MY ARMY NEWS LETTER ABOUT THIS AND CHECKED OUT ON LINE. ALSO I NOW PAY SOME CO-PAYS TO WALMART FOR CERTAIN DRUGS WHICH I NEVER HAD TO BEFORE AND NOW I HAD THE DRUGGIST AT WALMART EXPLAINED TO ME TO GO ON LINE AS TRICARE FOR LIFE WILL BE ELIMINATED BY LOCAL DRUG STORES AT THE END OF MARCH UNLESS YOU HAVE A WAIVER TO THE NEW POLICY. 

I WENT ON LINE AND FILLED OUT MY WAIVER BECAUSE I AM NOT ALLOWED TO TRAVEL AND I MUST DO BREATHING TREATMENTS 4 TIMES A DAY AT HOME BECAUSE MY CO2 LEVEL AT PRESENT IS 86% AT TIMES . SO FAR THEY HAVE REFUSED MY WAVIER AS TWO YEARS AGO THEY HAD STOPPED PAYING FOR MY O2 THRU MEDICARE .. 

THIS IS THE DEATH SQUADS BEING PUT IN PLACE FOR SENIOR CITIZENS. I ALSO CALLED THE HOT LINE NUMBER FOR TRICARE AND THEY IMMEDIATELY SWITCHED ME OVER TO EXPRESS SCRIPT. MY WIFE CAN VERIFY THIS AS I SPENT 1 HOUR A DAY ON THE PHONE BEING SWITCHED FROM ONE PERSON TO THE NEXT AND FINALLY ENDING UP WITH FOREIGN SPEAKING PERSON WHO COULD NOT UNDER STAND NOR SPEAK ENGLISH WHO CLAIMED THEY KNEW NOTHING ABOUT THE NEW TRICARE PILOT PROGRAM BEGININNG 1 JAN 2015.

I HAVE ALL THE MATERIALS AT THE NEXT MOAA MEETING FROM ON LINE AND WALMART.. AFTER NEXT MARCH 30 2015 I MUST PAY ONE HUNDRED PERCENT OF THE COST OUT OF MY POCKET FOR MY DRUGS PLUS DONNA'S. MINE RUNS BETWEEN $1600. A MONTH AND DONNA'S $1200. A MONTH UNLESS WE GO TO THE VA.

Community Open House Planned to Highlight Opportunities Associated with East Branch Dam Rehabilitation Project

Community Open House Planned to Highlight Opportunities Associated with East Branch Dam Rehabilitation Project

Informational Event for Community, Local Small Businesses

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Representative Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-5) today announced a Community Outreach Open House to highlight economic opportunities associated with the East Branch Dam Cutoff Wall Rehabilitation Project that will be held in Ridgway, PA, on Thursday November 20, 2014, from 3:00pm to 7:00pm.

Initiated by Rep. Thompson’s office, in cooperation with Layne Christensen Company, the general contractor for the project, and hosted by the North Central PA Regional Planning & Development Commission, the event is open to the public.

“The Community Outreach Open House is geared towards the residents of Ridgway and the surrounding areas to learn more about potential economic opportunities associated with the East Branch Dam rehabilitation project,” stated Rep. Thompson.

The event will include representatives from Layne Christensen Company, the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers, the U.S. Small Business Administration’s (SBA) Small Business Development Centers, Pennsylvania CareerLink, and both North Central PA Commission PTAC and Northwest PA Commission PTAC.

“For individuals seeking employment and local small businesses interested in opportunities, this is an open forum for those individuals and companies to gather information and have their questions answered,” Rep. Thompson added.

The Community Outreach Open House will offer residents and businesses information on potential project employment opportunities, including where to find project job postings, Layne’s procurement process and prerequisites, how to register your small business with the SBA, among other project resources and opportunities.

The U.S. Army Corp of Engineers awarded Layne Christensen a $132.5 million contract in August of 2014. Work on the project, which is scheduled to commence in the early part of 2015, involves installing a concrete cut-off wall within the existing embankment and bedrock of the dam along with associated ancillary work to support this effort.

“This project will address significant mine fire that will result in a safer, healthier environment for area residents,” said to Mike Korb, Director, Program Manager, Wilkes-Barre District, BAMR. “Residents will see quite a bit of activity at the fire site, but can be assured it is all in an effort to eliminate this hazard.

The fire was discovered near the coal refuse bank on Oct. 20, and reported to DEP’s Wilkes-Barre office. Local public works and fire companies were unsuccessful in their attempts to dig out and extinguish the fire.

On Oct. 28, DEP hired a contractor to drill near the fire to determine its depth and intensity. The contractor drilled 25 boreholes, three of which were 20 to 40 feet deep and registered at 100 degrees Fahrenheit. The depth of the fire is still unknown; however it measures approximately 35 feet in diameter on the surface. The area to be excavated will likely be less than one acre.

The fire excavation and quenching project will consist of constructing access roads, establishing a water supply, applying firefighting foam, excavating and quenching the refuse material and re-grading. Upon completion of the project, any disturbed areas will be seeded, cleaned and the equipment removed from the site.

Leeward Construction will be required to have approved gas monitoring equipment on site at all times to check for carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulfide and oxygen. Those equipment will take a minimum of three readings a day, within 20 feet of the nearby homes or as directed by DEP.

Funding for the project is provided by the Abandoned Mine Reclamation Fund, which is subsidized by the coal industry via a tonnage fee on coal mined.

Committee Hears Efforts to Control CWD in PA, Causer Says

Committee Hears Efforts to Control CWD in PA, Causer Says

Rep. Martin Causer
HARRISBURG – Efforts to control the spread of Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) in Pennsylvania’s deer population was the subject of an informational meeting of the House Game and Fisheries Committee, chaired by Rep. Martin Causer (R-Turtlepoint), on Thursday.

“Since it was first discovered on a captive deer farm two years ago in Adams County, additional cases of Chronic Wasting Disease have been identified in both free-ranging deer and other captive deer farms in the state,” said Causer. “Given the potentially devastating impact the disease could have on the population of deer and other cervids in Pennsylvania, it is important for members and the public to know what is being done to help control the disease.”

Because the disease is affecting both captive and free-ranging deer, both the state Department of Agriculture and the Pennsylvania Game Commission are involved in efforts to combat CWD. Representatives of both agencies appeared before the committee to discuss the nature of the disease, their efforts to control it and the difficulties it presents.

“This disease-causing organism has no DNA, so it’s not like bacteria, not like a virus, and that presents some real unique challenges in control,” said Dr. Craig Schultz, director, Bureau of Animal Health and Diagnostic Services and state veterinarian in the Department of Agriculture.

He noted that there is no treatment for a deer once it is infected and no vaccine to prevent infection. There is no practical means of testing soil for disease-causing prions and no accurate live-animal test to identify an infected animal. CWD is transmissible by relatively casual means, which also makes it difficult to prevent the spread of the disease.

Dr. Justin Brown, wildlife veterinarian with the Pennsylvania Game Commission, pointed to the stability of prions in the environment as another challenge, noting they can remain infective for years in the soil. He also discussed the importance of properly disposing of high-risk parts – those parts of the deer where prions accumulate, such as the brain, spinal cord, lymph nodes and spleen.

To help prevent the spread of the disease, the PGC has placed a ban on the importation of high-risk parts into Pennsylvania from states with CWD and a ban on the transportation of high-risk parts out of the disease management area. To further control the spread and prevalence of CWD, the commission has placed a ban on feeding wild deer, on the use of urine-based attractants and on rehabilitation of cervids in the disease management area. They are also working to increase the antlerless harvest in areas with CWD in wild deer.

Both men said efforts to control the disease are further complicated by the fact that it can take 18-24 months, and sometimes more, for an infected animal to begin showing clinical signs of the disease. Research has also shown infected deer may be shedding prions for months prior to showing any signs of the disease.

“It was interesting to learn what these two state agencies are doing with regard to CWD, but what was most surprising to me is how limited the information about the disease really is, even though it has now been found in 24 states,” Causer said. “Everyone agreed more research is needed to understand the cause of the disease, how to test for it, and how to deal with it.”

In addition to the effects on the deer population itself, Brown of the Game Commission also pointed to the potential impact the disease may have on the Commonwealth’s hunting traditions. In states where CWD has existed for some time, studies have shown hunter participation declines noticeably as the prevalence of CWD increases. Considering that deer hunters spend nearly $1 billion on hunting and related activities in Pennsylvania, it could have a significant impact on the state’s economy.

House Passes Bipartisan Legislation to Approve Keystone XL Pipeline

House Passes Bipartisan Legislation to Approve Keystone XL Pipeline

Thompson Calls Upon Senate to Approve Stalled Energy Infrastructure Project

*** 2014 U.S. State Department report estimates project will support 42,000 jobs nationwide***

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Representative Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-05) today issued the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 5682, legislation to approve the Keystone XL Pipeline. H.R. 5682 passed with bipartisan support by a vote of 252-161.

“Today, the House passed legislation to approve the Keystone XL Pipeline, a measure that has broad bipartisan support in both the House and Senate, will create thousands of American jobs and take us another step toward energy self-sufficiency. Given the obvious merits of moving forward with this vital energy infrastructure project, it is my hope that the Senate will put aside partisan politics and finally bring this important jobs bill to a vote.”

On March 23, 2013, the U.S. Senate approved the Keystone XL Pipeline as part of the Fiscal Year 2014 Budget Resolution by a bipartisan vote of 62-37, which included the backing of Senators Pat Toomey and Bob Casey.

Over the past few years, the House has voted numerous times to approve the pipeline, most recently when it passed H.R. 3, the Northern Route Approval Act, with broad bipartisan support.

Since the passage of H.R. 3, the U.S. State Department completed its Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement in January 31, 2014, which found that the pipeline would have limited adverse environmental impacts and would support more than 42,000 direct and indirect jobs nationwide.

Despite strong support in Congress from both Republican and Democrats, legislation to advance the Keystone XL pipeline has never received a final vote in the Senate.

Think About It

Are You a Nut?
by: B.J. Knefley

“If it seems that we are crazy, it is to bring glory to God. And if we are in our right minds, it is for your benefit” (2 Corinthians 5:13)

Paul, as you can see from the verse above, wasn’t afraid of being considered a nut. In the passage of scripture from which this verse comes, Paul is talking about being God’s Ambassador. As His Ambassador, Paul saw his responsibility as one that depended not on man’s opinions, but rather upon God’s. He said of those who have become Christians that they have “become new persons. They are not the same anymore, for the old life is gone, a new life has begun!”, (2 Corinthians 5:17). What’s he talking about?

Paul is referring to the old nature, that sinful life that we are all born with. In 2 Corinthians 5:15 he says, “He died for everyone so that those who receive his new life will no longer live to please themselves. Instead, they will live to please Christ, who died and was raised for them”. The operative word is receive. Paul’s history of being a man who persecuted the Christians is well documented in the Scriptures. But, one day he met Jesus Christ on the road to Damascus and that one encounter changed his life. Paul’s life took a 180-degree turn. He left his old life, and followed Christ with a new life. Those that knew him thought he had gone nuts. But Paul saw this as actually what he needed to do as he was no longer the same man that he used to be. The purpose of his life was now to please Christ.

Those who have encountered Christ are often looked on as being a little nuts or crazy. Like Paul their life changes, things they used to do, they no longer do. Their friends don’t find them to be fun to be around anymore. They are often counseled to “don’t get to religious”, “don’t go overboard”, etc. Yet if they were to talk to Paul, he would encourage them to not let the world be an influence. If you’re not sure where you stand, just ask yourself if there’s enough evidence to convict you of being a nut. If there isn’t then I guess the answer is plain. Think about it.
