Beginning Monday, schools can order tree seedlings through the Seedlings for Schools program.
The Pennsylvania Game Commission once again is helping students learn about the vital role trees play in the environment.
The “Seedlings for Schools” program provides tree seedlings to classrooms so students can plant them as part of projects to improve wildlife habitat.
Orders placed as part of the “Seedlings for Schools” program are being accepted from Feb. 29 through March 25. To order, visit the agency’s website, www.pgc.state.pa.us, and click on the “Seedlings for Schools” icon.
There is no charge to schools that participate in this program. The seedlings are provided by the Game Commission’s Howard Nursery and shipping costs are offset by donations.
The program provides two levels of involvement based on the grade levels.
“Seedlings for Your Class” is primarily for pre-K and elementary students. As part of this program, the Game Commission provides a classroom or one grade level with enough seedlings for each student to take a seedling home to plant. Seedling choices are white spruce and assorted flowering crabapple. A teachers’ guide and planting instructions come with the seedlings and can also be accessed through the website.
“Seedlings to Develop Habitats” is primarily for middle- and high-school students. As part of this program, the Game Commission provides a variety of seedlings to students who might use them to improve habitat on school or community grounds or along streams, or to create tree nurseries or environmental areas.
Seedlings come in bundles of 25, and will be shipped directly to schools by UPS in April, as soon as they are available.
Once seedlings arrive, it is important to keep them moist, said Annetta Ayers, superintendent of the Game Commission’s Howard Nursery.
Seedlings should be handed out to students with their roots in plastic bags with moist shredded newspaper, or with the seedlings planted in juice or milk cartons for transplanting at home, Ayers said.
More information about the program can be found on the Game Commission’s website, or by contacting RA-SchoolSeedlings@pa.gov.
The “Seedlings for Schools” program is made possible through generous donations by the Wildlife for Everyone Endowment Foundation, Mealey’s Furniture, the Pennsylvania Forestry Association and the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.
Individuals and groups wishing to donate to the program can send checks to the Wildlife for Everyone Endowment Fund, which maintains the account for donations. Be sure to indicate the donation is for the Game Commission’s “Seedlings for Schools” program. Donations can be mailed to the Wildlife for Everyone Endowment Foundation, 341 Science Park Road, State College, PA 16803.

Montoursville, PA – Motorists who travel Routes 15, 1022 (County Line Road) and 1017 (Park Road) in the Monroe Township, Snyder County are advised of new truck and turn restrictions that will be in effect once signs are installed over the next few days.
Trucks over 50 feet in length will be restricted from traveling on County Line Road due to insufficient turning radii at the intersection with Park Road.
As a result of this restriction, trucks over 50’ in length traveling on U.S. 15 northbound will be restricted from turning left onto County Line Road and trucks over 50’ in length traveling on U.S. 15 southbound will be restricted from turning right onto County Line Road. Also, trucks over 50’ in length traveling on Park Road northbound will be restricted from turning right onto County Line Road and trucks over 50’ in length traveling on Park Road southbound will be restricted from turning left onto County Line Road.
The restrictions are a result of an engineering and traffic study performed by PennDOT.

Montoursville – On Monday, February 29, a contractor will begin building an access road off Route 147 in Northumberland County to begin clearing work for the new Central Susquehanna Valley Transportation (CSVT) project river bridge crossing.
The access road will connect to Route 147 just south of Ridge Road between Northumberland Borough and Montandon.
Route 147 will be reduced to a single lane intermittently over the next several weeks for shoulder work and the delivery of large tree clearing equipment.
Traffic will be controlled using daylight signing and flaggers. Minor delays are expected during the morning and afternoon rush hours. Motorists should be alert and drive with caution through the area.

Harvest quotas still unmet, early call made on season extension.
Pennsylvania’s first river-otter season in more than 50 years is being extended until Sunday, Feb. 28 because harvest quotas have not yet been met.
This will be the final extension, meaning this trapping season, which is open only in Wildlife Management Units 3C and 3D in northeastern Pennsylvania, will close at sunset on Sunday, Feb. 28.
While previous decisions to extend the season, which initially was scheduled for Feb. 21 to Feb. 23, have been announced nightly at 8 p.m., the Game Commission made an early announcement for this final season because it was clear Friday afternoon the quote would remain unmet.
More information on the season can be found on the Game Commission’s Facebook page, which can be viewed at www.facebook/PennsylvaniaGameCommission, and also can be accessed through a link at the Game Commission’s website, www.pgc.state.pa.us.

The Pennsylvania Departments of Transportation (PennDOT) and Environmental Protection (DEP) are seeking volunteers for this year’s Great American Cleanup of Pennsylvania that begins March 1 and runs through May 31.
The cleanup is sponsored each year by PennDOT, DEP, Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful and other partners. Groups participating in PennDOT’s Adopt-A-Highway (AAH) program, which involves volunteers cleaning roadsides year round, are also encouraged to participate in the cleanup.
“Pennsylvania is a beautiful state, and it’s imperative that we work together to keep it that way,” PennDOT Secretary Leslie S. Richards said. “I urge individuals to join the thousands of volunteers in their communities to participate in the cleanup this year to keep Pennsylvania not only esthetically beautiful, but environmentally safe.”
Interested individuals can find a listing of cleanup events, resources for organizing a cleanup, and other information about the effort online at www.gacofpa.org. Groups interested in adopting a section of highway are encouraged to contact their local PennDOT County Maintenance office and ask for the AAH coordinator, or visit www.penndot.gov under “About us.” Groups interested in adopting a locally maintained road, contact Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful, www.keeppabeautiful.org under “Keep It.”
“In addition to litter pick-up events, volunteers also organize recycling events for hard to dispose of items, helping to reduce illegal dumping that threatens public health and damages the environment,” DEP Secretary John Quigley said. “Volunteers can also take part by planting bulbs and trees that not only beautify our green spaces but helps to prevent run off pollution to our waterways.”
Also as part of this year’s cleanup, the PA Route 6 Alliance encourages residents near the Route 6 Heritage Corridor to register at www.gacofpa.org for their “Route 6 Round-up” beautification efforts.
During last year’s Great American Cleanup, 6 million pounds of litter was collected from Pennsylvania’s roads, trails and shorelines by more than 128,000 volunteers. PennDOT’s AAH program contributed nearly 71,000 volunteers who cleaned up nearly 40 percent of the collected litter on 8,757 miles of cleaned-up roadway.
Through PennDOT’s AAH program, volunteers collect litter on a two-mile section of state highway at least two times a year. The program currently has over 6,000 participating groups, more than 111,000 volunteers and 13,973 miles of adopted state-maintained roadways.
Gloves, trash bags and safety vests are provided by PennDOT, DEP, and the GLAD Products Company, a national sponsor of Keep America Beautiful’s Great American Cleanup. In addition, during “Pick it Up PA Days” from April 16 to May 9, registered events have access to reduced or free disposal at participating landfills sponsored by PA DEP and the Pennsylvania Waste Industries Association.

Potter County Law Enforcement, by and through the District Attorney Andy J. Watson, in association with Charles Cole Memorial Hospital and Potter County Drug and Alcohol Abuse Services, are pleased to announce the creation of the C.L.E.A.N. Protocol.
C.L.E.A.N. is an acronym for Concerned Law Enforcement Against Narcotics.
With the overwhelming support of the Pennsylvania State Police, Coudersport Borough Police Department, Shinglehouse Borough Police Department, the Sweden Township Police Department (Sweden/ Roulette Townships), Galeton Borough Police Department, Charles Cole Memorial Hospital, and Drug and Alcohol Abuse Services through Colleen Wilbur and Crystal Thomas, the District Attorney has initiated the C.L.E.A.N. Protocol to encourage individuals addicted to drugs and or alcohol to seek out Law Enforcement for assistance in obtaining rehabilitative services for their addiction.
This Protocol is unique in that any individual that approaches a Law Enforcement Officer or Official who requests help will not be prosecuted for reporting their addiction, possible crimes, or being in possession of controlled substances or paraphernalia that may be turned over to a Police Officer voluntarily.
The Protocol was drafted by District Attorney Andy J. Watson in light of the increasing abuse of controlled substances and alcohol throughout the nation, noting that many of Potter County’s citizens do not know where to turn for help. Although the Drug Task Force that was initiated in 2010 by DA Watson has been and continues to be very successful in removing many of the County’s main drug dealers from our community, “there is always more as law enforcement that we can do to help people,” said DA Watson. Through the legal system, many addicts are incarcerated and receive rehabilitative services, however the C.L.E.A.N. Protocol is designed to encourage addicted individuals to work with Law Enforcement before they are caught and arrested.
The C.L.E.A.N. Protocol is modeled after a similar initiative that was created in Gloucester, Massachusetts to bridge the gap between Law Enforcement and addicts who are interested in recovery.
“Even if one life can be saved through this type of cooperation, the Protocol is worthwhile,” said DA Watson. The District Attorney, local law enforcement, Charles Cole Memorial Hospital, and Drug and Alcohol Abuse Services are excited to work together regarding this new Protocol and look forward to working with the public towards a more sober and law abiding community.
Any individual seeking rehabilitative services may contact the District Attorney at 814-274-9450, the Pennsylvania State Police at 814-274-8690, Coudersport Borough Police Department at 814-274-8970, Galeton Borough Police Department at 814- 435-2600, Shinglehouse Borough Police Department at 814-697-6206, Sweden Township Police Department (Sweden/Roulette Townships) at 814-274-0654, or Drug and Alcohol Abuse Services representative Crystal Thomas at 814-544-7315.

Dear Genesee Township Supervisors & Residents,
It is with much regret that I am informing you of my immediate resignation as Secretary/Treasurer of Genesee Township.
Not only is it unconscionable for me to work in such a hostile environment, it is also physically and mentally debilitating to work under such stressful circumstances. In addition to the ongoing ridicule and harassment, the most recent disregard to principal, ethic, law, and employee safety, has encouraged me to remove myself from this toxic arena.
This decision has proven to be most difficult. With it, I am relinquishing so many things that I have treasured. For example: I have always gotten great satisfaction from assisting our residents and building relationships with them. I absolutely loved developing and sharing the Genesee Community Newsletter.
I was proud to represent Genesee Township and Potter County on the PSATS Secretary/Manager Committee. My presence on this committee gave a voice to our rural area north of Interstate 80.
I have felt honored to be the President of the Potter County Township Officials Association for the last several years. I was gratified to sit on Potter County's committees when they needed insight from the municipal level. My position at Genesee Township has always been a matter of heart.
Perhaps that is why resigning grieves me so.
In closing, I have left behind a handbook for multiple processes. I have developed a guide for the time sensitive things such as reports, advertising, budget preparing, etc.---They can be found in the top left drawer of the desk. I built a file for the necessary steps to take in replacing the secretary—it can be found in the Personnel drawer of the filing cabinet.

US 6 Bridges to be replaced as part of Public-Private Partnership Project
(Clearfield, PA) – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project includes Sixteen PennDOT bridges in McKean county that are due for replacement under the program, with most scheduled to be constructed in 2017.
The project contractor, Plenary Walsh Keystone Partners (PWKP) invites the public to a public plans display, to review information and provide input on two of the bridges planned for reconstruction:
BRIDGES: US Route 6 over Marvin Creek at Hazel Hurst and
US Route 6 over Warren Brook at Marvindale
WHERE: Hamlin Township Office, 22 Park Road, Hazel Hurst PA 16733
WHEN: February 29 through March 14, 2016; 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Monday-Friday
Design is still very preliminary, but conceptual traffic control for both structures is for staged construction, maintaining traffic on one alternating lane (possibly signal-controlled) during construction which should last about 23 weeks for each project, tentatively scheduled to begin May 2017.
These bridge replacements are part of the Rapid Bridge Replacement Project, a Public-Private Partnership (P3) between PennDOT and PWKP under which PWKP will finance, design, replace, and maintain the bridges for 25 years. The P3 approach allows PennDOT to replace the bridges quickly while achieving savings and minimizing impact on motorists.
To see the bridges included in the statewide initiative and to learn more about the Rapid Bridge Replacement Project and P3 in Pennsylvania, visit www.P3forPA.pa.gov. Additional information on the project, the team and how to bid on the project can be found at www.PARapidBridges.com.

Where Is God In Your Decisions?
by Pastor B.J. Knefley
We are making decisions every day. Some are simple decisions, while others are more involved. Some we seek counsel for while others we don’t. How do we determine which decisions need the involvement of God and which don’t? Or do we even need to seek God’s involvement in any decision?
It has been my experience that we often seek God for the things that we want his involvement in when the answer is going to be in our favor. But when he might say no, we’re really not interested in hearing his answer. Or the other scenario is that after we’ve made a decision that turns out badly, we seek God to rescue us. Unfortunately we often make decisions and then ask God to bless them.
In Isaiah 30:1-5, God scolds his people who seek counsel, but not from him. They develop plans but don’t seek his spiritual direction. They ask for advice, and get their strength from others. Consequently their behavior will bring shame upon them. Isaiah speaks clearly that it is only God that knows the future and to not consult him is foolishness. Yet, we like the leaders of Israel, are constantly making plans without consulting God. Who we should marry, where we should live, what we should buy or not buy, or even what career we should pursue are decided without any thought that there may be one who has a greater plan for us. We made decisions that in hindsight we realize we shouldn’t have made, and we probably know someone who has done the same thing.
What do you suppose would happen if we started to ask God before we did something? For some, the first thing that would happen is that they wouldn’t get into debt. For others, they would never get into a relationship that would produce heart ache later on. Overall, we all would probably live happier and healthier lives; we just wouldn’t always get what we want. Think about it.
