Artist Demonstrations Scheduled During Twelfth Annual Art in the Wilds

Geno Boni works on a bowl at 
the 2017 Art in the Wilds show
The Twelfth Annual Art in the Wilds outdoor, juried fine arts show will take place on Saturday, June 23 and Sunday, June 24 between the hours of 10AM and 5PM in scenic Evergreen Park in Kane.
A total of 40 artists showcase and sell their work in the following categories: acrylics, oils, watercolors, drawings, mixed media, pottery, photography, fiber, wood, leather, jewelry, glass and metal.

Over the weekend, several artists can be found demonstrating at their booths during the show including: Stacie Johnson-Leske throwing pots; Leslie Halaby-Moore creating chain maille jewelry; Peggy Houser beading jewelry; Pamela Bartl spinning raw wool into yarn; Gregg Kristophel carving wooden spoons; and Ellen Paquette painting mythical animals.

On Sunday, plan to be at the gazebo:

At 11 am Debbie Penley of Sugar Grove PA says, she will turn a handful of wool into a peaceful sleeping fawn. Debbie is a juried artist with the Wilds Cooperative of Pennsylvania and is a fiber artist who creates whimsical animal portraitures and soft sculptures. Come to see how she makes them!

At 1 pm Michael Weishan of Cattaraugus, NY will demonstrate how to get proper exposures for photographs. He specializes in on-location landscape portraits and spends endless hours outdoors sorting out the patterns of nature and observing the interplay of wildlife. He will share his expertise with you. Feel free to ask questions.

At 2 pm Diane Castle-Babcock of Boonville, NY will tell you about the art of printmaking. She combines her love of the outdoors by creating impressionistic landscapes. She begins each print with a drawing and transfers it to linoleum. Using a variety of v-shaped gouges, she carves out and inks each layer (color) and then hand presses them onto Japanese rice paper for very fine compositions. She’ll show you how it’s done.

At 3 pm Connie Blair is a fiber artist from West Newton, PA who spent over 30 years teaching art. She creates one-of-a-kind fabric creations including hats, scarves and other accessories and will demonstrate the process of felting using the resist method. Layers of wool are wetted with warm water and soap and are agitated by rubbing and rolling. Come to see how she turns this into a hat. It’s fascinating!

Ask the demonstrators questions and involve them in discussions as you get the close-up opportunity to learn how they work. All of them sell their creative pieces at the show and you will have a better appreciation of the work that goes into each one.

Also, on Sunday at the food tent area: watch and listen to a young local high school student who really knows how to make a violin sing!

Under the direction of Janine Smith, Art in the Wilds will be featuring the student art exhibition and competition. High school students in districts from McKean, and five contiguous counties including Cameron, Elk, Forest, Potter and Warren have been invited to participate. Students submitted art pieces to their art teachers and those accepted pieces will be displayed at Art in the Wilds. Eight schools will be represented this year.

Art in the Wilds is made possible by many local sponsors including: UPMC Kane, Zook Motors, Northwest, CNB Bank and Highlander Energy Products, Inc. It has been supported by the Kane Community Development Foundation and Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.

Partners include PA Wilds Artisan Trail, PA Route 6 Artisan Trail, Allegheny National Forest Visitor’s Bureau, Kane Area Development Center and ArtWorks.

House Approves Resolutions to Address Workplace Harassment, Misconduct

HARRISBURG – The House today approved two resolutions, authored by Reps. Marcy Toepel (R-Montgomery), Donna Oberlander (R-Clarion/Armstrong/Forest) and Sheryl Delozier (R-Cumberland), to further safeguard employees and any individual who works for government or at the state Capitol from sexual and workplace-related harassment.

“As part of the caucus leadership team, we want to ensure these important issues are dealt with through a thoughtful, deliberate approach, rather than an immediate response that may lack power and direction,” Toepel said. “By taking the time to listen to people representing all perspectives, we will be best equipped to improve the professional climate for Pennsylvanians.”

Toepel is the House Republican caucus chairman, and Oberlander is the caucus secretary. Throughout her professional life, Delozier has been extensively involved in victim advocacy issues, as a volunteer with YWCA, a counselor to rape victims and a member of the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency.

The resolutions would review current laws and regulations and make suggestions for improvements.

Specifically, House Resolution 828 would create a task force to investigate the laws, practices and procedures surrounding harassment and sexual misconduct in the workplace. This comprehensive review would reveal any inadequacies in current laws, regulations and policies surrounding this subject, and produce a report to the General Assembly with its findings and recommendations. The task force – which would consist of attorneys, human resources professionals, employers, state agencies and victims’ service organizations – would provide legislators with a blueprint for potential legislation. It is largely based on the resolution that created the very successful Child Protection Task Force established in 2011 following the child abuse scandals in Pennsylvania.

“A one-size-fits-all solution may not be the most effective approach for every case, and that’s why we want a thorough examination. It is our responsibility to ensure that our laws reflect the best practices for both public and private sector workplaces, and that they are applied fairly,” said Oberlander. “A task force similar to the one we created for child protection will give us the ability to look at the issue from various viewpoints and consider the best avenue for legislative action.”

House Resolution 829 would review anti-harassment and discrimination laws and policies affecting Commonwealth employees. The Joint State Government Commission (JSGC) would be tasked with reviewing the number, types and results of workplace complaints in state government agencies and entities, and provide a comparison of workplace policies related to harassment and sexual misconduct.

“As a long-time victims’ advocate, both through my work in the community and as the author of various pieces of legislation, I understand the anger, frustration and fear victims face,” Delozier said. “We owe it to the victims to remove barriers and make sure the most appropriate and effective safeguards are in place. The best way to do this is to evaluate what we already have in place in order to learn how we can address deficiencies to make perpetrators powerless in the workplace.”

The Senate is working on its own companion resolution to put the task force in place.

Spreading Oil & Gas “Brine” Waste On PA Roads Halted… For Now

by Melissa Troutman June 18, 2018
Earthworks Blog

For someone who doesn’t have an email account, Siri Lawson gets a lot done. In fact, she accomplishes more than most people who do use email.

After observing the use of oil and gas “brine” on her local roads and speaking with neighbors, Lawson realized that a decades-old common practice of spreading the drilling wastewater in her township was not only affecting the health of her community, it also seemed to be a violation of Pennsylvania law – despite being approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PA DEP).

Siri enlisted the help of attorneys at Fair Shake, an environmental law firm based in Pittsburgh, to appeal the state’s approval of oil and gas wastewater (called “brine” because of its extremely high salt and chemical content) to de-ice and suppress dust on dirt and gravel roads.

Though the appeal was determined moot by the PA Environmental Hearing Board, as approvals expired in December 2017, the PA DEP admitted that it should not have allowed the spreading of oil and gas “brine” waste on roads. Though DEP requires municipalities and companies to obtain a “certificate of analysis” that shows waste has been tested for toxins, the testing is very minimal and does not include dangerous oil and gas pollutants such as radium – a known carcinogen.

As a result of Siri’s appeal, the PA DEP has halted further approvals for road spreading of oil and gas wastewater.

However, a bill currently making its way through the Pennsylvania legislature would reinstate this dangerous practice of spreading oil and gas waste on roads. Read more......

PRESS RELEASE CONCERNING SHOOTING OF DOG BY OLEAN POLICE OFFICER

City of Olean, NY Police Department

On Friday, the 15th of June, at 10:10 am, the City of Olean Police Department received a call to assist the Cattaraugus County SPCA at 128 East Henley Street in the City of Olean. 

Two officers responded to assist the SPCA. Upon arrival the officers were informed by the SPCA personnel that they had been called to pick up a loose dog. The dog was very aggressive with them and they were unable to catch it with their catch pole. The second officer on scene was going to attempt to Taser the animal, but was unable to get into a position to do so safely and efficiently. 

Several calls were made to various Agencies in an effort to locate a longer catch pole. The Department of Environmental Conservation was contacted and responded to the scene with a longer pole. At this time, the dog was on the porch of the residence, and several attempts were made to try to catch the dog with the pole. There were two SPCA personnel as well as the DEC officer on scene, working together in an attempt to get the dog in a position to capture it using the catch pole. 

We were unsuccessful in our attempts to catch the dog using these means. 

The dog had been on the porch of the house up to this point. When the dog left the porch, and the officers no longer had the ability to control the dog’s movement, the decision was made to put the dog down. 

This event lasted just under two hours. We, as well as the SPCA, made every effort to safely capture the animal. There were many people in the area that would be in danger if the dog was allowed to run loose. 

While on the scene, more than one person reported to officers that the dog had bitten people previously. Our records indicate that there are two reports on file regarding this dog. One where it had bit another dog, as well as the most recent report where it had attacked its owner at the above residence; during this event, the dog was stabbed by the owner in self defense during the attack. 

I am making this information available due to the abundance of misinformation being put out by people who do not know the exact circumstances surrounding the incident. Unfortunately, we would have been criticized regardless of our actions. 

We chose to protect the public from a dangerous dog who, if allowed to run free, could have easily attacked someone in a populated residential neighborhood. We stand by our decision. 

Chief of Police Jeffrey Rowley.

Meadville, PA -- The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) will conduct a mosquito control operation to reduce high populations of mosquitoes on Tuesday, June 19, 2018, in portions of Keating and Eldred Townships, as well as Eldred Borough, McKean County.

Truck mounted ULV spray equipment will be utilized and the product used will be Duet applied at a rate of .67 oz/acre. This product is designed to provide quick knockdown and effective control of adult mosquitoes. The control work will begin late in the evening.

Weather conditions and other unexpected events (such as lowered mosquito populations) could delay or cancel this spray operation.  The rain date for this application is Wednesday, June 20, 2018. 

Certain mosquito species carry the West Nile virus, which can cause humans to contract West Nile encephalitis, an infection that can result in an inflammation of the brain. According to the Pennsylvania Department of Health, all residents in areas where virus activity has been identified are at risk of contracting West Nile encephalitis.

Individuals can take a number of precautionary measures around their homes to help eliminate mosquito-breeding areas, including:
•    Dispose of cans, buckets, plastic containers, ceramic pots, or similar containers that hold water.
•    Properly dispose of discarded tires that can collect water. Stagnant water is where most mosquitoes breed.
•    Drill holes in the bottom of outdoor recycling containers.
•    Have clogged roof gutters cleaned every year as the leaves from surrounding trees have a tendency to plug drains.
•    Turn over plastic wading pools when not in use.
•    Turn over wheelbarrows and don't let water stagnate in birdbaths.
•    Aerate ornamental pools or stock them with fish.
•    Clean and chlorinate swimming pools not in use and remove any water that may collect on pool covers.

If a resident has stagnant pools of water on their property, they can buy Bti products at lawn and garden, outdoor supply, home improvement and other stores. This naturally occurring bacterium kills mosquito larvae, but is safe for people, pets, aquatic life and plants.

Additionally, these simple precautions can prevent mosquito bites, particularly for people who are most at risk:
•    Make sure screens fit tightly over doors and windows to keep mosquitoes out of homes.
•    Consider wearing long-sleeved shirts, long pants and socks when outdoors, particularly when mosquitoes are most active at dawn and dusk, or in areas known for having large numbers of mosquitoes.
•    When possible, reduce outdoor exposure at dawn and dusk during peak mosquito periods, usually April through October.
•    Use insect repellents according to the manufacturer's instructions. An effective repellent will contain DEET, picardin, or lemon eucalyptus oil. Consult with a pediatrician or family physician for questions about the use of repellent on children, as repellent is not recommended for children under the age of two months.

Kayak launch dedication supported by Potter County Conservation District

Alan Kerkeslager, Genesee River Wilds co-founder, cuts the ceremonial launch ribbon with Genesee Headwaters Watershed Association president, Steve Richard
On Saturday, June 16 Genesee Park came alive during the annual Community Days celebration, and that afternoon Genesee Headwaters Watershed Association, the Potter County Conservation District, and others celebrated the opening of a new Canoe and Kayak Launch site.

The launch lies near the back of the park and features a kiosk provided for by Genesee River Wilds, a non-profit group working to provide more river access, boost interest in outdoor recreation, and conservation. Co-founder of the organization, Alan Kerkeslager, had the honor of cutting the ceremonial ribbon.

Steve Richard, Genesee Headwaters Watershed Association president, said “our mission as a community volunteer group is to minimize stream bank erosion and monitor water quality through sampling of macro invertebrate life. It is through our group’s application, assisted by the Potter County Conservation District, that we received the funding through the Western Pa. Conservancy to build the kayak and canoe launch.” The Conservation district also assisted in incorporating fish and wildlife habitat and bank stabilization structures.

The purpose of this new launch goes beyond recreational use. The project benefits both visitors and wildlife, and is a vital tool in creating appreciation for our waterways. “The headwaters area of the Genesee is unique, difficult to traverse and intimate,” Richard said. “If you are lost in the headwaters area, just find and follow a spring run, a bubbling brook or one of the branches and you will always end up in this park. The waters will guide you and the hillsides and hollows will cradle you, and you will be surprised at what you find on your journey.”

The project was made possible by Genesee River Wilds, the Genesee Township Park Council, the Western Pa. Conservancy, the Heavy Equipment Operations and Carpentry students from Alfred State College, the Potter County Conservation District, Dominion Gas and Jack Jones & Sons and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, which oversees that WAG Trail that runs from Wellsville to Genesee, Pa.
