Senator Pat Toomey Has Visited With Constituents In All 67 Counties

Pennsylvania Dept. Of Agriculture News

Sept. 5, 2014

Message from George Greig
Secretary of Agriculture
When the storms Irene and Lee hit PA three years ago, many farmers experienced major setbacks. PDA and USDA secured crop insurance aid for those who needed it the most. Our risk mgm't tools worked, but I knew they could work better. When it came time for the country to prepare the 2014 Farm Bill, we talked with producers and crop insurance experts and worked with other state ag depts and our congressional delegation. We advocated for stronger provisions to benefit more farmers. We asked for streamlined policies and procedures to enhance crop insurance, and requested more flexibility in production recordkeeping requirm'ts. So when the new farm bill emerged, it placed an emphasis on risk mgm't, not on making direct payments to farmers. Four disaster programs were indefinitely extended, and now producers don't have to purchase crop insurance or NAP coverage to be eligible for disaster assistance. Best of all, we helped convince Washington D.C. that gov't-mandated dairy supply controls were not the way to go. We will have more details in the coming weeks on how we've helped improve crop insurance for PA.

Committee to Hold Pennsylvania Field Hearing on the Impacts of the Northern Long Eared Bat’s Federal Endangered Species Act Listing

Committee to Hold Pennsylvania Field Hearing on the Impacts of the Northern Long Eared Bat’s Federal Endangered Species Act Listing
Potential Listing Could Negatively Affect Pennsylvania & 37 Other States While Doing Little to Protect Bats
Bellefonte, Pa. – The U.S. House Natural Resources Committee will hold a Full Committee field hearing in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania on September 8, 2014 on “The Northern Long Eared Bat: The Federal Endangered Species Act and the Impacts of a Listing on Pennsylvania and 37 Other States.”  

The hearing will examine questions regarding bat data and non-human-caused disease, as well as the likely negative impacts that a federal endangered listing for this particular species would have on important activities such as farming and forestry. The Northern Long Eared Bat is one of hundreds of species included in the U.S. Department of the Interior’s 2011 settlements with two groups that requires listing decisions by 2016. A final decision for the Northern Long Eared Bat could be made within the next several months.

Witnesses at the hearing will testify about the economic impacts of the endangered listing on Pennsylvania citizens and how the actions regulated under the proposed designation would fail to mitigate problems causing the decline of the species.

“Similar to the listing and habitat designation of the Northern Spotted Owl over 20 years ago, this is a potentially sweeping decision that affects portions of 38 states.  It is vital that a decision of this magnitude be based on actual data, not settlement deadlines, and that it includes input from affected landowners and stakeholders not only from Pennsylvania, but from the rest of the two-thirds of the United States that would be impacted,” said Natural Resources Committee Chairman Doc Hastings (WA-04).

“This hearing is part of the House Natural Resources Committee’s effort to improve and update the Endangered Species Act. I want to thank Chairman Doc Hastings for initiating this timely hearing on the proposal by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to designate the Northern Long Eared Bat as endangered, which will have sweeping effects on a range of economic sectors in 38 states including Pennsylvania,” said Rep. Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-05).

“I support the Endangered Species Act’s (ESA) goal to preserve and protect domestic species. The proposal to list the Northern Long-Eared Bat on the ESA is another example of government rushing forward with a regulation that would have significant and far-reaching impacts on the economy, in this case, home building, farming, manufacturing, and even land management for ecological purposes. This hearing is an important opportunity to hear from local stakeholders on the negative effects that this potential listing would have on local communities and the U.S. Department of the Interior and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service should fully evaluate the ramifications of this proposal to find a solution that protects the bat while allowing activities that minimally affect it to continue," said Rep. Scott Perry (PA-04).

On June 24, 2014 the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) announced a six month deadline extension of its decision to list the Northern Long Eared Bat as endangered, citing substantial disagreement regarding the scientific data used to support the proposed determination.

Rep. Thompson, along with eight members of the Pennsylvania congressional delegation, had previously initiated a letter to FWS questioning the science used to support the designation and urging the agency to reevaluate the listing.

Motorists Advised of I-80 Line Painting in Clearfield, Centre and Clinton Counties

Motorists Advised of I-80 Line Painting in Clearfield, Centre and Clinton Counties

Clearfield –PennDOT is advising drivers on I-80 of line painting operations in Clearfield, Centre and Clinton counties, set to start next week. All line painting work is weather dependent with crews beginning work in Clearfield County.

On Monday, Sept 8, line painting will take place eastbound and westbound in Clearfield County from mile-marker 120/Clearfield to mile-maker 139/Centre County line. On Tuesday, Sept. 9, PennDOT plans to line paint eastbound and westbound in Clearfield County from mile-marker 123/Woodland to mile-marker 96/DuBois.

Sept. 15 and 16 will move line painting activity to Centre and Clinton counties, with crews line painting eastbound and westbound from mile-marker 139/Centre County line to mile-marker 170/Lamar in Clinton County.

Sept. 22 and 23 will complete Clinton County line painting, with crews painting from mile-marker 170/Lamar to mile-marker 194/Mile Run.

Motorists will find line painting information available on permanent and portable message boards in the region and on the Highway Advisory Radio System at 1640 on the AM dial.

Annual painting helps to improve the visibility of road lines and enhances roadway safety. With safety the number one concern during all painting operations, drivers should be aware that:

• The line painting operation is a moving operation. “LINE PAINTING – WET PAINT” signs and flashing lights are mounted on the back of equipment to warn motorists of the painting operation.
• Motorists should stay at least eight to ten car lengths behind line painting
equipment to avoid running over wet paint. The paint spray guns are two
inches off the roadway surface and cannot spray a vehicle. Paint can only get
on a vehicle if a driver runs over wet lines.

Motorists can check conditions on major roadways by visiting 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 700 traffic cameras. 511PA is also available through a smartphone application for iPhone and Android devices, by calling 5-1-1, or by following regional Twitter alerts accessible on the 511PA website.

Doctors: More heart patients should be brought to Olean General Hospital

Doctors: More heart patients should be brought to Olean General Hospital

By Rick Miller, Olean Times Herald

ALLEGANY — The Interventional Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory at Olean General Hospital opened Oct. 1, 2013.

It is the only hospital in southwestern New York that can find and fix serious heart issues, Dr. Christopher Mallavarapu told members of the Cattaraugus County Board of Health on Wednesday.

Over the past 11 months, the cardiac lab, a partnership between Olean General Hospital and gates Vascular Institute in Buffalo, has done 554 procedures, including 1,211 interventions and 51 STEMIs (ST Segment Elevation Myocardial infarction), caused by prolonged blockage of blood supply in the heart.

Dr. Mallavarapu said, up until a few years ago, emergency medical services from fire departments around the county were trained to get heart attack victims to cardiac care as soon as possible. That usually meant a medical helicopter trip to hospitals in Buffalo, Rochester or Erie, Pa.

He spoke about the importance of the “golden hour” in treating heart attack victims. “Now, we can fix things (here) right away and save a significant amount of (heart) muscle.”

The average American male will have a heart attack by age 66; for women the is age 70, Dr. Mallavarapu said. Looking around the table at the Board of Health meeting at the St. Bonaventure Clubhouse, he said, “Everybody probably has some degree of (coronary) blockage.” Coupled with high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol and other risk factors, an artery narrowed by plaque could burst, causing a major blockage leading to a heart attack.

“EMS plays a critical role here,” Dr. Mallavarapu said. Some can transmit EKGs of a patient from an ambulance en route to the hospital. In this case, the cardiac team is ready when the patient arrives at the door of the heart lab.

“The goal is to try to get (into the heart) within 60 minutes” of the attack, Dr. Mallavarapu said. Half of the patients arrive at the heart lab in ambulances, while about half are walk-ins who suspect they are having a heart attack. Read more...

Enrollment Opens for New Dairy Farm Risk Management Program, New Online Tools Available

September 5, 2014
USDA Announces Open Enrollment for New Dairy Farm Risk Management Program Created Under 2014 Farm Bill
Department, Assisted by Pennsylvania State University, Launches New Web
Tool to Help Producers Manage Unforeseen Economic Challenges  
Bellefonte, PA – The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has announced that beginning this week, on Sept. 2, 2014, farmers can enroll in the new dairy Margin Protection Program. The voluntary program, established by the 2014 Farm Bill, provides financial assistance to participating farmers when the margin – the difference between the price of milk and feed costs – falls below the coverage level selected by the farmer.

“The dairy Margin Protection Program created under the 2014 Farm Bill is now open for enrollment,” stated U.S. Representative Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-5), a member of the House Agriculture Committee. “This new program in an investment in cost-effective risk management that will provide our dairy producers with greater certainty and stronger tools to manage economic risks beyond their control.  I strongly encourage farmers to begin evaluating coverage options and program requirements well in advance of the enrollment deadline, which is November 28, 2014.”
Enrollment begins Sept. 2 and ends on Nov. 28, 2014, for 2014 and 2015. Participating farmers must remain in the program through 2018 and pay a minimum $100 administrative fee each year. Producers have the option of selecting a different coverage level during open enrollment each year.
USDA has also launched a new Web tool to help producers determine the level of coverage under the Margin Protection Program that will provide them with the strongest safety net under a variety of conditions. The online resource, available at, allows dairy farmers to quickly and easily combine unique operation data and other key variables to calculate their coverage needs based on price projections. Producers can also review historical data or estimate future coverage based on data projections. The secure site can be accessed via computer, Smartphone, tablet or any other platform, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Development of the online resource was led by the University of Illinois, in partnership with the USDA and the Program on Dairy Markets and Policy (DMaP). DMaP partners include the University of Illinois, the University of Wisconsin, Cornell University, Pennsylvania State University, the University of Minnesota, Ohio State University and Michigan State University.
Dairy operations enrolling in the new program must comply with conservation compliance provisions and cannot participate in the Livestock Gross Margin dairy insurance program. Farmers already participating in the Livestock Gross Margin program may register for the Margin Protection Program, but the new margin program will only begin once their Livestock Gross Margin coverage has ended.
The Margin Protection Program final rule was published in the Federal Register on Aug. 29, 2014. The Farm Service Agency (FSA), which administers the program, will open a 60-day public comment period on the dairy program.
FSA wants to hear from dairy operators to determine whether the current regulation accurately addresses management changes, such as adding new family members to the dairy operation or inter-generational transfers. Written comments must be submitted by Oct. 28, 2014, at or

Work on Route 255 project near I-80 DuBois continues

Work on Route 255 project near I-80 DuBois continues
Traffic delays expected Saturday as traffic pattern changes

DuBois – Traffic delays should be expected Saturday, Sept. 6, as work continues on PennDOT’s Route 255 project near I-80. Crews will be setting barrier and painting roadway lines in order to make another change to the traffic pattern on a small bridge just north of the Treasure Lake entrance.

Dependent on weather and work progress, lengthy delays could occur into mid- afternoon. The Northbound traffic pattern will remain shifted to the right shoulder while the southbound traffic pattern will be shifted to the center, opposing the northbound traffic as it crosses the structure. This will allow crews to work on the left lane and left shoulder of the bridge for the final phase of bridge repairs.

Flaggers will be in the roadway on Saturday from 7 a.m. into the afternoon hours enforcing an alternating traffic pattern during the traffic shift work. Once barrier is set and lines are painted, northbound and southbound lanes will reopen to traffic. A 10½-foot width restriction will be in place, which is a change from the previous 11-foot width.

Work remaining on the project includes guide rail installation and roadway milling and paving. This project started in May of 2013 and has included milling and paving, bridge deck repair, cleaning and upgrading of pipe culverts and inlets, water-line extension, and installation of new traffic signals at the I-80 ramps. All work is weather and schedule dependent. New Enterprise Stone and Lime Inc. is the contractor on this $3.7 million project.

Penn State DuBois Starts 2014 Golf Season Strong

Penn State DuBois Starts 2014 Golf Season Strong

Penn State DuBois’ Golf Team played their first tournament of the season on Thursday and walked away tied for first place with Penn State Lehigh Valley in the field of seven teams. PSLH ended up being named tournament champion based on a tiebreaking criterion. The “Bernie Gus Invitational” named after the long time golf coach at PSNK was played at the Links at Spring Church and was hosted by Penn State New Kensington. The weather was perfect for golf, sunny skies and little wind.

Seven full teams were represented in the first PSUAC tournament of the season. Top ten individual scorers for PSUD were Mitch Gilmore (Ridgway High School) who led the PSUD team with an 82 to earn the 5th place overall score. DuBois’ Tyler Woodard (Smethport Area High School) and Kristi Hanes, (Elk County Catholic) were close behind, finishing tied for 6th with 83’s. Rounding out the scoring for PSUD, Justin Quiggle (St. Marys HS) and Vinnie Montanari (Redbank Valley) both posted 97’s, and Justin Gumpf (Big Spring HS) posted a 100 to finish the scoring.

"Tied for first or not, it was as great way to start the season," said PSUD coach Pat Lewis. He added, “All of the conference schools were here and it is nice for our golfers to get off to a strong start. Eight of our ten golfers from last year’s PSUAC Championship team moved on to main campus, so this was a whole new group of golfers for DuBois again this year. I’m very pleased with their composure in their first collegiate golf match.” PSUD finished with a team score of 345 to start the conference season (5-1).

PSU DuBois' next match is September 8th at DuBois Country Club hosted by Penn State DuBois. 11:00 a.m. Shotgun Start

Roadside Spring Legal Issues to Be Considered

Roadside Spring Legal Issues to Be Considered

Penn State Extension
Posted: September 4, 2014
By the end of 2015, this roadside spring in Fox Township, Elk County, may be the most talked about spring in the state of Pennsylvania. On September 3, 2014, the Township Supervisors of Fox Township voted unanimously to cooperate with Penn State Law Students, under the direction of Ross Pifer, Director of the Rural Economic Development Clinic, to examine the legal issues for the municipality concerning the spring.
Roadside Spring Legal Issues to Be Considered

In 2013, Penn State Extension Water Resources Team sampled 35 roadside springs, located in 19 counties, throughout Pennsylvania. Ninety-one percent of these springs tested positive for coliform bacteria and 34 percent tested positive for E. coli bacteria. Public drinking water supplies must meet the EPA standard of zero for both of these drinking water parameters. This information was presented at a workshop at the 2014 Pennsylvania Association of Township Supervisors (PSATS) Conference in Harrisburg. Mike Keller, Fox Township Supervisor, attended that session and asked the Penn State Extension Water Team to test the roadside spring in Fox Township. On August 7, 2014, Water Resources Extension Educator, Jim Clark, sampled and tested the spring and it was positive for both coliform bacteria and E. coli bacteria. 

The Fox Township Supervisors are now in the position of many supervisors across the state. They have a roadside spring where people are collecting water for drinking and it has tested as not safe for human consumption, without treatment. The Penn State Extension Water Team contacted the Penn State Law School to gather more information about the legal issues surrounding roadside springs in Pennsylvania. The Penn State Law Students will now assist the Fox Township Supervisors by researching the legal questions such as; what actions, if any should the supervisors take, are township supervisors in any way responsible for the roadside spring, or should a sign be posted at the spring, and if so, what should it say.

The Penn State Water Resources Team is hoping to present an updated roadside spring workshop at the 2015 PSATS Conference reporting on the Fox Township project and also on the additional water testing they have completed since 2013. More Information...

9-5-2014 Recalls

09/04/2014 04:00 PM EDT

Tullia’s is recalling Italian Meatless Pasta Sauce code 530140. This recall has been initiated because a records review by the Washington State Department of Agriculture revealed that one batch of sauce produced with the 530140 code had a pH level high enough to allow the growth of Clostridium botulinum. If present, this organism can cause botulism, a serious and potentially fatal foodborne illness.

Think About It.......

The Road Less Traveled

Like many, when I’m traveling I like to get from point A to point B in the quickest amount of time. I’m generally not interested in sightseeing. I’m on a mission, and not many things will deter me from my objective. But I’ve also wondered what was beyond the four-lane highway? Where did those roads go and who were the people that lived out there? Today I decided to venture out on to one of those highways just to see where it would lead. I found out that they are not as busy as the four-lane highways, and it was filled with little towns, closed up buildings, and in some cases, dying communities. I’ve forgotten what it was like to drive and not find a gas station or convenient store for a half hour or more. Ironically the road that I was on was once the main thoroughfare for more than 160 miles. But now the interstate has taken away the traffic and the hub of activity centers around the exits as that is where you’ll find the fast food and hotels.

Taking the road less traveled is time consuming. You’re not going to get there fast, but there is so much more to learn. What I found on my trip today was that there’s a lot of poverty out there. Sometimes it’s easy to find if you’re looking in the inner city. But it isn’t as evident when you’re only hitting the highlights of the four lane highways, and skirting in and out of airports. To find out how people are actually living you’ve got to take the road less traveled.

We’re in an age when people don’t want to take the time to interact with their neighbors. It saddens me to hear people tell me that they don’t know their neighbors, especially when they’ve lived next to each other for several years. If we’re going to take the road less traveled, we’re going to have to put ourselves out there. It will mean taking time out of our lives and busy schedules so that our lives will intercept with others. Isn’t this at least in part, what it means to love our neighbor as ourselves? Could it be that Jesus is calling us to walk the road that is less traveled because that’s what he did? Think about it.
