HARRISBURG – Pennsylvania Game Commission officials are encouraging bird and nature fans throughout the state to join tens of thousands of everyday North American bird watchers for the 2012 Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC), Feb. 17-20.

A joint project of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society, this free event is an opportunity for families, students, and people of all ages to discover the wonders of nature in backyards, schoolyards, and local parks, and, at the same time, make an important contribution to conservation. Participants count birds and report their sightings online at

“These types of activities provide the citizen-scientist with an opportunity to help wildlife,” said Doug Gross, Game Commission biologist. “Anyone who can identify even a few species can contribute to the information wildlife managers use to decide where to invest limited resources in land conservation, as well as habitat improvement or protection.

“Additionally, this is a great opportunity for beginning bird watchers to hone their skills, and for all participants to enjoy the winter landscape.”

Participants are asked to count birds for at least 15 minutes on at least one day of the event and reporting their sightings online at Additional online resources include tips to help identify birds, a photo gallery, and special materials for educators.

Gross encouraged those submitting reports to the GBBC website to also contribute bird sightings by registering at Pennsylvania eBird website managed by the Game Commission. To submit sightings, go to the Game Commission’s website ( and click on “Wildlife” in the menu bar at the top of the page, then choose “Birding” and then click on “Pennsylvania eBird.”

“The Game Commission was the first state wildlife agency to host and manage a state eBird website, which is dedicated to helping birders throughout North America and the world record their bird observations and improve our understanding of the use of bird habitat and seasonal bird activities,” Gross said.

The data collected helps the Game Commission and other wildlife researchers understand the importance of particular locations to birds and bird population trends, information that is critical for effective conservation. These efforts enable everyone to see what would otherwise be impossible: a comprehensive picture of where birds are in late winter and how their numbers and distribution compare with previous years.

Each year, in addition to entering their tallies, participants submit thousands of digital images for the GBBC photo contest. Many are featured in the popular online gallery.

Action Alert Concerning HB 1950

Action Alert Concerning HB 1950

Below is an urgent alert from PennEnvironment, concerning a pending vote on HB 1950, a bill which would strip local communities of their right to regulate Marcellus drilling through the zoning process. Please read this urgent message and contact your legislators through the easy process provided. Needless to say, time is of the essence.

For the last two months we've fought to stop House Bill 1950, a dangerous dramatic rollback to our environmental laws that would benefit Marcellus Shale gas drillers, not Pennsylvanians. But, now it seems like it may be on the move again with a vote happening this Monday evening.

We've got a plan to stop this bill, but it requires us to win over new allies and keep old friends on our side. Click here to email your legislators and tell them to do everything in their power to stop this attack on our environment and health.

After local officials, thousands of Pennsylvanians, and numerous public health, outdoors and environmental groups came out opposing this bill, you would think the legislature would fix it. Instead, it sounds like they may leave in the worst provisions of this bill, including ones that:

  • Prevent local townships and counties from setting commonsense protections above and beyond those set by the state;
  • Weaken environmental protections and leave gaping loopholes to allow gas drillers to pollute our environment and threaten our health. This includes legislation that could allow corporations to review environmental permits for gas drilling companies—instead of state environmental officials;
  • Enact corporate welfare that shields the drilling industry from paying their fair share through a watered down drilling severance tax—a fee that the industry pays in every other major drilling state in the U.S. Gov. Perry's Texas charges more than twice what's being proposed by the Pennsylvania legislature.

We can't let the gas drilling industry and their allies in Harrisburg get away with this. Tell your state Representative and Senator to do everything in their power to stop this bill before its too late.

DEP Awards 73 Grants to Protect, Improve Watersheds in 36 Counties

DEP Awards 73 Grants to Protect, Improve Watersheds in 36 Counties

HARRISBURG -- The Department of Environmental Protection announced today that it will invest in 73 watershed protection projects intended to improve watersheds, stormwater runoff, acid mine drainage and educational programs, among other environmental efforts.

This year, the Growing Greener program, which is funded by the Environmental Stewardship Fund, will award $9.72 million for 57 projects around the state. An additional project, funded by the Surface Mining Conservation and Reclamation Grant, will cost $72,912. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Section 319 Nonpoint Source Management Program, which was created through the federal Clean Water Act to help reduce water pollution from nonpoint sources, is funding 15 additional projects, which would total $3.12 million.

“We are delighted to provide support to local communities and watershed groups to fund projects that enhance and protect Pennsylvania’s water quality,” DEP Secretary Mike Krancer said. “That includes projects that address abandoned mine drainage, stream bank restoration, stormwater reductions and agricultural runoff.”

These projects will reduce nonpoint source pollution in watersheds where streams are impaired by implementing agricultural and stormwater best-management practices; developing, repairing or installing passive systems to treat abandoned mine drainage; and supporting the establishment of riparian buffers, among other goals.

One of the Growing Greener program’s goals is to invest in projects that protect watersheds from impairment due to nonpoint source pollution or those that will restore damaged waterways. Some examples of priority areas are restoration activities to reduce pollutant load in impaired watersheds for which total maximum daily loads have been developed; projects in priority watersheds that would reduce the source of impairment; and priority activities that lead to water quality restoration and protection.

In this latest grant round, 130 applicants request about $24.5 million. Applications came from counties, authorities and other municipalities; county conservation districts; councils of governments; watershed organizations that promote local watershed conservation efforts; and other authorized organizations involved in restoring and protecting the environment.

Rail America To Aquire 70% Interest In Wellsboro & Corning RR for $18 Million

RailAmerica Signs Agreement to Acquire Majority Interest in the Wellsboro and Corning Railroad and Industrial Waste Group

JACKSONVILLE, FL- RailAmerica (NYSE: RA) today announced that it has signed an agreement to acquire a seventy-percent interest in the Wellsboro and Corning Railroad ("WCOR") and Industrial Waste Group ("IWG") from Myles Group for $18 million. Members of the Myles family will retain the remaining thirty-percent interest in the companies and continue in senior leadership roles. The acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to be completed early in the second quarter of 2012.

The WCOR operates 38 miles of track running from Wellsboro, PA to Corning, NY handling a variety of industrial products primarily used in the natural resources industry. RailAmerica anticipates the WCOR to experience rapid traffic growth and expand its freight and non-freight services in support of the development of the Marcellus Shale natural gas industry.

IWG performs transload, storage, and other value-added services for customers in the energy and waste management industries. It operates four transloading facilities located in Wellsboro, PA; Corning, NY; Toledo, OH; and Amelia, VA. RailAmerica expects IWG to continue to grow by developing transload operations in new markets and extending its services throughout RailAmerica's network.

RailAmerica President and CEO John Giles said, "This is an exciting opportunity for both RailAmerica and Myles Group. The rail and transloading infrastructure at Wellsboro is uniquely located in the heart of the northern Marcellus Shale and represents a key asset in the transportation of both inbound and outbound products for major exploration and production companies. Both WCOR and IWG have established relationships and contracts with leading companies in the energy and related industries. The acquisition allows RailAmerica to gain direct exposure to the enormous potential in the area and also leverage the expertise of Myles Group in opening similar transload facilities throughout the country."

Giles continued, "This transaction, along with our acquisition of the Marquette Railroad also announced today, is the result of our ongoing focus on growth through corporate development and strategic investments. We continue to pursue an active pipeline of opportunities and are optimistic about the outlook for additional accretive investments."

Over the next 12 months of operations, WCOR and IWG combined are expected to generate approximately $17 million in revenue, $3.5 million in operating income (excluding closing costs) and $1.3 million in depreciation and amortization. RailAmerica intends to finance the purchase using cash on hand and its revolving credit facility. The financial results of the WCOR and IWG will be consolidated into RailAmerica's financials, and RailAmerica's net income will be reduced by the thirty-percent minority interest.

RailAmerica, Inc. owns and operates short-line and regional freight railroads in North America, operating a portfolio of 43 individual railroads with approximately 7,400 miles of track in 27 U.S. states and three Canadian provinces.

Adversity reveals character! Every challenge we face in life can lift us or sink us. What are you gonna do when life hits the fan? Myself personally would find the nearest drug or bottle of booze and medicate myself into oblivion the only problem was when I came back to my senses life was worse.

So what are you gonna do today when life hits the fan! When it happens to me I like to go some place quiet and pray for peace and wisdom. Taking a time out and changing your surroundings is a great way to put a challenge in a new perspective. We cannot continue to let adversity rule and determine how we live, but we can take rule over adversity and use it to develop a strong moral character! REMEMBER JESUS LOVES YOU!

BRADFORD, Pa. – The Rev. Leo Gallina, a Bradford native and former pastor of St. Bernard Catholic Church, will receive the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford’s highest honor at this year’s commencement ceremony.

Dr. Livingston Alexander, president of Pitt-Bradford, will present the Presidential Medal of Distinction to Gallina at the 2012 Commencement Ceremony scheduled on April 29 at 2 p.m. in the KOA Arena of the Sport and Fitness Center.

In commenting on campus sentiment about Gallina, Alexander said, “The university community is thrilled to be able to honor Father Gallina. Many of us, faculty, staff and students alike, have found inspiration in his generosity, commitment and enthusiasm. Through his direct and indirect gifts, he has left a lasting legacy at Pitt-Bradford.”

Gallina responded with his trademark humility.

“I am most humbled by this award and truly enjoy helping out in a small way so that others may have an education for the future,” he said. “I thank the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford for this great distinction.”

Gallina has been a steadfast supporter of Pitt-Bradford, creating the Leo J. and Jessie S. Gallina and Father Leo J. Gallina Scholarship and the Phillip John Gallina Scholarship in memory of his parents and brother. Since 1998, those scholarships have assisted 42 students.

Gallina also has supported several community organizations, including the Bradford Area Public Library, Bradford Hospital Foundation and scholarships at Gannon and St. Bonaventure universities. He has also given his time to serving on the boards of numerous local organizations, including Beacon Light Behavioral Health Systems, Futures Inc., The Bradford Family YMCA and the Bradford Hospital Foundation.

Gallina is a Bradford native, the son of Leo J. Gallina, a professional independent certified public accountant, and Jessie S. Gallina, an elementary schoolteacher in Bradford. Gallina’s parents were enthusiastic volunteers themselves, working with the Bradford Children’s Home, Bradford Hospital Auxiliary, the American Association of University Women and the Catholic Girls’ Club.

Ordained in 1965, Gallina attended seminaries at Gannon University in Erie, Christ the King in Allegany, N.Y., and Catholic University in Washington, D.C.

His career in the priesthood took him to Cathedral Prep in Erie, where he taught; St. George’s Church in Erie and St. Tobias Church in Brockway, where he was an assistant pastor. He served as pastor of St. Theresa Church in Shinglehouse, Sacred Heart Parish in Genesee, St. Boniface Church in Erie and St. Bernard Church in Bradford. Gallina retired last summer after 46 years of service to the church. He currently lives in Erie, but returns to Bradford often.

Gallina is the 25th individual awarded the Presidential Medal of Distinction, which is presented to a person who has either volunteered his or her time for several years; supported the university either financially or with expertise or advice; served the university’s service region through community; government or business affiliation; or has made distinctive achievements in his or her field that have affected Pitt-Bradford.

Previous medal winners were George Duke; Thomas Bromeley; former University of Pittsburgh Provost James V. Maher; Dr. Williams C. Conrad and the Stackpole-Hall Foundation; Harry R. Halloran Jr. and Harvey L. Golubock of American Refining Group; Madeline Miles; Judge John M. Cleland; Dr. Richard E. McDowell; Dennis Lowery; Edwin Clemens; Marilyn Horne; Howard Fesenmyer; Henry P. Pruch; Robert D. Galey; Lester Rice; William F. Higie; Samuel Gregg Jr.; Dr. Robert C. Laing; Harriett B. Wick and Sarah B. Dorn; former U.S. Rep. John E. Peterson; Virginia L. Miles; and Dr. Robert B. Bromeley.

Don't Be Taken By This Scam

The call came from a number (530)419-2193. This is a scam! Do not send money!!
A Coudersport resident received this call today*****
I received a call at work today from a Mark Robinson(a very heavy Indian accent). He stated he was affiliated with the Brook's Associates Law Firm. He told me that I had a lawsuit filed against me and he needed my lawyer's contact information to speed the process along. I told him I didn't have a lawyer. He then asked me if I was aware of the lawsuit. I said no. He stated he would transfer me to a Senior Adviser, who could tell me what the lawsuit was about. I told him I was at work and they would have to call me back....He interrupted and told me if I didn't talk to this adviser that I would be arrested and then I couldn't get any help. When he tried to transfer me the line went directly to a dial tone. He then called back on my work line and very rudely declared that I hung up the phone in his face! I told him I did not and he said alright I will transfer you again, and again the dial tone. The third time he tried to call my boss answered the phone and told him that I was not allowed personal calls at work, I was on the clock and not to call back again. I then got a voicemail on my cell phone. The same man, and the same story. On my break I called the number back to find out what this was all that point David Jones answered(also with a very heavy accent-probably the same man) with a, "Hello". Most companies that I know of announce themselves promptly....1st red flag. I was told that there was a lawsuit against me, that I would be arrested first thing on Monday morning, and that I would be charged with 3 felonies. He then read me an affidavit. I asked what company was filing this against me? I was told a federal bank that runs hundreds of different loan companies with different names. He asked me if I was intending to defraud this company by not paying them. I said no and I didn't know what he was even talking about. He told me I owed $962.and some change in interest and court fees. I then asked for the number to the company that I supposedly owed this money to and Mr. Jones stated," They don't want your money now." 2nd red flag. I then said wait a minute, these people want me arrested and are taking me to court over money I owe them but now they don't want it....He then told me he could stop the whole process by submitting an application to the company but that I needed to send $300 today for an application fee. 3rd red flag! I told him I didn't have $300 and if I did I would've paid whoever it was claiming I owed money in the first place and that I guess they would have to arrest me then.....I got an abrupt end to the call(hang up). The call came from a number (530)419-2193. This is a scam! Do not send money!! I googled the number and was presented with a list of articles about this same men, same story, and same scam. There is also a youtube audio of the same men, same story. I have no idea how they got my work info or my cell phone number! I wanted to get this info out to people in the area that this is happening and hopefully prevent someone who is maybe a little more timid than I am from being taken advantage of.
