Know Your Second Amendment Rights – State Rep. Tommy Sankey (R-Clearfield/Cambria) and I are hosting a concealed carry seminar on Saturday, March 19, at 9 a.m., at the Clearfield Driving Park in Expo Building 1 of the Clearfield County Fairgrounds. The seminar, which is free to attend, will be held during the Central PA Outdoor and Sports Show being held at the fairgrounds that weekend.

Speakers include Clearfield County Sheriff Wes Thurston, Clearfield County District Attorney Bill Shaw and United States Concealed Carry Association Instructor Jerry Schickling.

If you already have a concealed carry permit, or are thinking of obtaining one, please consider attending this seminar. There are misconceptions about concealed carry laws in Pennsylvania and we’re hosting this event in an effort to lay out the facts for gun owners.

Injection Well Hearing – This Monday, March 7, at 6 p.m., a public hearing on Windfall Gas and Oil’s application to drill a new injection-disposal well in Brady Township will be held on the Penn State-DuBois campus. The hearing will take place in Hiller Auditorium.

I have consistently expressed my opposition to the siting of this well in a residential neighborhood, and I have already submitted written comments to the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) in support of the neighboring residents’ concerns, a number of whom live within 1,000 feet of the proposed site. It is my hope the public feedback at this hearing will assist DEP in gathering the information the agency needs to make an appropriate decision that protects the neighboring residents of the area.

Anyone wishing to testify needs to sign up at the door to the auditorium Monday night before the start of the meeting.
