New Law to Name Bridges in Honor Area Veterans, Causer Says

HARRISBURG – Two bridges in McKean and Potter counties will be named to honor area veterans under a new state law, said Rep. Martin Causer (R-Turtlepoint).

“President Calvin Coolidge once said, ‘The nation which forgets its defenders will itself be forgotten,’” Causer said. “Dedicating bridges in honor of the brave men and women from our area who honorably served our country is one way to pay tribute to them and remember their service and sacrifice.”

Under Act 29 of 2015:

The bridge on Route 155 over the Allegheny River in Port Allegany Borough and Liberty Township, McKean County, is designated the Port Allegany Veterans Memorial Bridge. The bridge is dedicated in honor of both past and present residents serving in the United States armed forces.
The bridge on Route T-325 over the Allegheny River in Coudersport Borough, Potter County, is designated the Lt. William E. Daisley Jr. Memorial Bridge. Daisley was an outstanding scholar, role model and athlete at Coudersport Area High School who graduated with high honors from the U.S. Naval Academy. In March 1993, he was taking part in a training exercise off the coast of North Carolina, and his plane never returned. The wreckage was discovered later that day, but his remains were not recovered.

Causer’s legislation to name the bridges was amended into another bill, House Bill 501, which was signed into law by the governor on July 10.

DEP Lifts Drought Watch for 37 Counties Across PA

The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) today lifted the drought watch declaration for 37 counties throughout Pennsylvania, based on recommendations from the Pennsylvania Drought Task Force. No counties remain on drought watch.

“We have seen an increase in rainfall in many parts of the state that has restored groundwater levels and streamflow,” DEP Secretary John Quigley said. “While conditions have improved, I would encourage all Pennsylvanians to continue to consider their water use and conserve whenever possible.”

The drought watch was issued on March 24 for Berks, Bradford, Cambria, Carbon, Clinton, Columbia, Indiana, Lackawanna, Lawrence, Luzerne, Lycoming, McKean, Mercer, Monroe, Montour, Northumberland, Pike, Potter, Schuylkill, Snyder, Sullivan, Susquehanna, Tioga, Union, Wayne, Westmoreland, and Wyoming counties. It was expanded on June 17 for Bedford, Blair, Centre, Franklin, Fulton, Huntingdon, Juniata, Lehigh, Mifflin, and Northampton counties.

The drought watch was declared because of below-average precipitation in the fall, winter and spring months which led to lower than normal groundwater levels. However, precipitation during the month of June was above average and a review of county monitoring gauges shows that the 30-day average stream flows and groundwater levels have risen to normal or above normal conditions across the state.

The Pennsylvania Drought Task Force uses reports and forecasts from the National Weather Service and U.S. Geological Survey, as well as analysis from DEP’s drought monitoring program, to make its recommendations on issuing and lifting declarations. The task force, led by DEP, will continue to monitor conditions across the state.

A drought watch declaration is the first and least-severe level of the state’s three drought classifications. It calls for a voluntary five percent reduction in non-essential water use and puts large water consumers on notice to begin planning for the possibility of reduced water supplies.

Water conservation tips and additional drought information are available by clicking here or visiting DEP’s website, www.dep.state.pa.us, keyword: drought.

Think About It

Human Nature
by Pastor B.J. Knefley

I went to a yard sale the other day and they had a small popup camper for sale. Now I wasn’t looking for a camper but by the time I’d left the sale I had put a deposit on it. I’ve laughed a couple of times because I bought a camper when I didn’t even know I wanted one. To make matters worse, my wife went back the next day and the people decided to not sell the unit and gave back the check. Now I had a dilemma. Although I wasn’t looking for a camper, I had bought one. But now I didn’t have it and what I didn’t know I wanted before, I now did. Have you ever noticed that when you’re looking for something you can never find it, but when you’re not, you see the item all the time. We found one about two hours away from our house and made an appointment the next day to look at it and subsequently purchase it. All of this for a camper that we weren’t looking for and didn’t even know we wanted. Human nature is a funny thing.

We are funny people. We buy things we don’t need and we need things that we don’t buy. Retailers know that by putting candy at the check out line, many will purchase them. The end caps of aisles are often the places that you’ll find promotional items. Again, retailers know that people will see an item while walking down the aisle looking for something else and be enticed to buy it.

I believe that we’re often trying to satisfy an inner longing. Without really know it, our human nature has a longing for satisfaction. Some have seen this as significance or belonging. If we are created beings, than wouldn’t it be logical to have an inner purpose to which we were created. Is it possible that some of our decisions and acts are really our human nature trying to satisfy something that we’re not aware is actually there? Paul, in Romans 1:18-32, speaks to the idea that the knowledge of God can be known by everyone but many push this knowledge aside to follow other pursuits. I’ve often wondered if we’re trying to satisfy our inner desires with things that are already perishing. Perhaps our human nature is desiring the real deal, we’re just too stubborn to follow it. Think about it.

Roulette Chemical Engine #1 Gets News Of $180,000. In Federal Grants For New Equipment

This afternoon I received a call a from US Rep. Thompson's office. They were excited to announce that the Roulette Chemical Engine Company #1 was awarded two Federal Grants this year! We were awarded $143,000 for the purchase of a new Ambulance and $37,000 for the purchase of an in house cascade system. Our members of the department are extremely excited about this news. This achievement would not have been possible with out the help from John Sly, our grant writer. This makes three grants we have received with his help in the last two years. Also it could not have been done with out all of the members of our station. Everyone plays a role in how this department operates. These items are greatly needed and will be a great addition to the station. I am proud to work with everyone and can't wait until the new items arrive at the station. Keep up the great work!!

Thompson Cosponsored, Bipartisan Resilient Federal Forests Act of 2015 Passes House

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 9, 2015
 CONTACT: Bailey Hall
Thompson Cosponsored, Bipartisan Resilient Federal Forests Act of 2015 Passes House 
Washington, D.C.—Today, the House of Representatives approved H.R. 2647, the Resilient Federal Forests Act of 2015, a comprehensive bill aimed at expediting and improving forest management activities, including those occurring in the Allegheny National Forest in Pennsylvania’s 5th Congressional District.

The Resilient Federal Forests Act of 2015 builds upon the work of previous Congresses to address the consequences of catastrophic wildfire, invasive species and disease infestations, along with other ongoing threats to the national forest system.  The bill also will return resilience and proper management to overgrown, fire-prone forested lands.

“The Resilient Federal Forests Act of 2015 will provide the Forest Service increased authority to manage our federal forests, particularly when it comes to dealing with constant, arbitrary and capricious litigation,” Conservation and Forestry Subcommittee Chairman Thompson said. 

“The Resilient Federal Forests Act of 2015 promotes collaborative management between the U.S. Forest Service and private sector.  This bill will also allow for states and interested parties to provide funding for projects.  Furthermore, H.R. 2647 will allow for commonsense and environmentally sound categorical exclusions, which will help the U.S. Forest Service cut through unnecessary red tape and expedite the planning process so our forests can be properly managed,” Thompson added

Prior to the bill’s passage, Thompson managed debate on the floor of the House of Representatives.  His opening remarks can be found here

The Resilient Federal Forests Act of 2015 cleared the House by a vote of 262-167.
