The latest news from the State Capitol 
            
 
                          
Capitol Fountain Turns Pink - In an annual tradition at the state Capitol to raise awareness of breast cancer, the fountain outside the building’s East Wing was turned pink this week as a reminder that early detection saves lives. The fountain will remain pink throughout the month.

According to the American Cancer Society, nearly 250,000 women and men in the United States will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer this year, even though the public has become more informed about preventative care and the benefits of early detection.

To help with early detection, the Pennsylvania Department of Health offers the HealthyWoman Program, a free breast and cervical cancer early detection program that offers free mammograms and clinical breast exams.

On the Road Again - The Route 219/Brockport Road bridge over Mead Run in Horton Township is open to traffic again. It had been closed for construction and is now no longer structurally deficient.

Thank you to everyone who came out for Thursday's Senior Expo I co-hosted with state Rep. Tommy Sankey (Clearfield/Cambria) at the Clearfield County Fairgrounds. Turnout was great, and my staff and I enjoyed spending time with our neighbors and friends.

Thanks also to the vendors and agencies that took time out of their schedules to spend part of their day with us.
