Discussing the Future of Denton Hill State Park    
It was great to see so many people come out to an open house hosted by the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources this week to discuss the future of Denton Hill State Park.
The feasibility study conducted over the last several months simply reinforces what many of us already know. Denton Hill is a great asset to our area and it has substantial support across the community and the region.

I am hopeful that, as officials move forward with a master plan, we can get funding released to make the necessary improvements. As I stated at the meeting last night, our state land generates a great deal of money for the Commonwealth through oil, gas and timber development. It’s reasonable to expect some of that money come back here and be invested in our state park.

Ceremony to Recognize Cold War-Era Veterans
Over the years, I have had the honor of hosting events to recognize groups of veterans who served in World War II, Korea and Vietnam.

At a ceremony this spring, I will recognize Cold War-era veterans who served between Sept. 2, 1945, and Dec. 26, 1991.

To participate in the event, please register by calling my offices in Bradford (814-362-4400), Coudersport (814-274-9769) or Kane (814-837-0880), or go online at Everyone who registers will be contacted with information about the ceremony when it is scheduled.

The event is open to all veterans residing in the 67th Legislative District, which includes Cameron, McKean and Potter counties, as well as their family members.

To veterans who served in the Persian Gulf conflict or subsequent operations, please know that I wish to recognize your service as well and will plan to do so at a future event.

Reminder: Veterans Service Officer in Coudersport

A veterans field service officer with the American Legion will be available to assist veterans at my Coudersport office (107 S. Main St.) on Thursday, Jan. 28, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Assistance with services such as compensation, education, pension, health care and death benefits is available by appointment only. To schedule, please call the office at 814-274-9769. Veterans need not be a member of the American Legion to use the service.
