You’re Invited to the 12th Annual Senior Citizens Expo

Don’t miss out on the 12th Annual Senior Citizens Expo on Friday, Aug. 8, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford Sports and Fitness Building gymnasium.
Watch Video

The event features dozens of vendors that offer helpful information for senior citizens and their caregivers, such as health care, insurance, nutrition and exercise, fire safety, financial planning, fraud protection, government services, hunting/fishing, personal safety and more. This is a great opportunity to gather a wealth of helpful information all in one place. In addition, health screenings will be offered and lunch will be served.

For more information, contact my Bradford office at (814) 362-4400. A second expo is being planned in Roulette on Friday, Oct. 10. Looking forward to seeing you at one or both of these great events!

Honoring Area Veterans

Many brave men and women have given their lives for us, our country and our principles. It is important to always remember the service and sacrifice of these soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines and guardsmen.

On Saturday, July 12, I will join with VFW Post 6611 and others in a ceremony dedicating the State Route 1022 (Mill Street) bridge over Pine Creek in Galeton Borough, Potter County, as the Specialist Clark Robert Douglas Memorial Bridge. Please join us in paying tribute to this young man who died while serving our country in Vietnam. The ceremony begins at 1 p.m. at the bridge.

Earlier this week, the General Assembly approved and the governor signed legislation to name additional bridges in the county.
 • The bridge on Route 49 over the Cowanesque River between Dennis Hill Road and Church Street in Harrison Township will be re-named the Private First Class Roger P. Downey Memorial Bridge.  
 • The West Chestnut Street bridge in Coudersport Borough will be re-named the Private Edwin Tubbs Memorial Bridge.  
 • The Route 872 bridge near the border of Coudersport Borough and Eulalia Township will be re-named the Specialist Donald Stiles Memorial Bridge.

Doe Licenses Go on Sale Monday

The Pennsylvania Game Commission will begin accepting applications for the first round of doe license sales this Monday, July 14. The number of licenses has been reduced by nearly 60,000, so hunters who want a license should submit their applications sooner rather than later. In-state applicants only are being accepted for the first two weeks.

Antlerless deer license applications must be mailed directly to a county treasurer’s office and be mailed in the official pink envelope issued to hunters at the time they purchase their general hunting licenses.

Additional information about doe licenses can be found here.

Slow Down, Save a Life

The summer season is the busiest for road maintenance crews throughout the state, and PennDOT is reminding drivers to take extra precautions in work zones.

State law requires motorists to turn their headlights on while driving in all work zones, not just active zones. In addition, PennDOT asks drivers to not exceed the posted speed limit and maintain a safe distance around vehicles (don’t tailgate) and stay alert for signs and flaggers.

Failure to obey the law and drive with caution through work zones can have deadly consequences, as they did in 2010 when a local PennDOT worker, Jack Griffin, lost his life after he was hit and killed in a work zone by a driver who was under the influence of prescription drugs.

Motorists caught driving 11 miles per hour or more above the posted speed limit in an active work zone, or who are involved in a crash in an active work zone and are convicted for failing to drive at a safe speed, automatically will lose their license for 15 days. Fines for certain traffic violations – including speeding, driving under the influence and failure to obey traffic control devices – are doubled for active work zones. Also, the law provides for up to five years of additional jail time for individuals convicted of homicide by vehicle for a crash that occurred in an active work zone.
