Senior citizens and their family members and caregivers are once again invited to the annual Senior Citizens Expo in Bradford on Friday, Aug. 12. The free event will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford Sports and Fitness Gymnasium.

Health screenings will also be offered, and door prizes will be awarded. Lunch will be provided for all attendees and exhibitors.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by our table at the Potter County Fair this past week. My family even came out to help, though they managed to escape long enough to enjoy a few rides and delicious fair food. If you’re looking for more fair fun, the Cameron County Fair runs Aug. 7-13 and the McKean County Fair runs Aug. 14-20.
Back-to-School Vaccination Clinics Now Available 
Before long, kids will be heading back to school. To help keep them healthy, the Department of Health is holding a series of immunization clinics in Cameron, McKean and Potter counties, offering both extended weeknight and Saturday hours.

The clinics provide vaccines at little or no cost for children through 18 years of age who are Medicaid eligible, uninsured, underinsured, or American Indian or Alaska Native. The cost is $5 per child (payable by check or money order) for families above income guidelines. No child will be turned away because of an inability to pay.

This coming week, clinics will be offered in Smethport and Coudersport, and future clinics are scheduled in Bradford and Emporium. Advance appointments are required. Click here for a detailed list of clinics and information about making appointments.
DEP Declares Drought Watch for 34 Pennsylvania Counties
The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) this week issued a drought watch declaration for 34 Pennsylvania counties, including Cameron and McKean counties, and a drought warning for Potter County. The declarations are due to low stream flows, declining groundwater levels and below-normal precipitation.

A drought watch, the least severe of the three drought declarations, calls for a voluntary 5 percent reduction in non-essential water use. A drought warning calls for a voluntary reduction of 10-15 percent.

Child Car Seat Law to Take Effect Next Week
Children under the age of 2 will need to be securely fastened in a rear-facing child safety seat under a new state law that takes effect on Friday, Aug. 12.

Under Act 43 of 2016, a child under age 2 must use the rear-facing seat until he or she outgrows the maximum weight and limits designated by the manufacturer. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration currently recommends infants should be in a rear-facing car seat until they weigh at least 20 pounds and are at least age 1.

According to existing state law, children under age 4 must be buckled into a child safety seat. Children ages 4-7 must be buckled into a properly secured child booster seat, while children ages 8-18 must be buckled in a seat belt.

Has any one ever tried to contact his satellite office in Coudersport? I have tried again and again, not recently, but the phone call was never answered. Always a recording. In almost every instance I needed an answer at that time, not when someone got around to return my call, never knowing when that might happen. I know there might be times when the associate may be busy, but always?
