The latest news from the State Capitol 
Conserve Water - Clearfield and Elk counties are among 34 Pennsylvania counties now operating under a drought watch as issued by the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). The declaration is in response to low stream flows, declining groundwater levels and below-normal precipitation primarily across counties in the upper half and south-central portions of Pennsylvania. These conditions have resulted in rainfall deficits of as much as 6 inches during the past 90 days.
A drought watch calls for a voluntary 5 percent reduction in non-essential water use. DEP recommends the following ways to reduce water use:
• Run water only when necessary.  Avoid running the faucet while brushing your teeth or shaving, or letting the shower run for several minutes before use.
• Check for household leaks.  A leaking toilet can waste up to 200 gallons of water each day.
• Run dishwashers and washing machines only with full loads.
• Replace older appliances with high-efficiency, front-loading models that use about 30 percent less water and 40 to 50 percent less energy.
• Install low-flow plumbing fixtures and aerators on faucets.
It’s Fair Week – The Elk County Fair will be held this Tuesday, Aug. 9, through Saturday, Aug. 13, in Kersey. For more information, please click here to visit the fair’s Facebook page.
You still have two more days to enjoy the 156th Clearfield County Fair, which is going on Friday and Saturday in Clearfield. Here are a few photos from Monday night’s firemen’s parade.  
Attention Hunters - The Pennsylvania Game Commission will be hosting a hunter training course on Saturday, Sept. 10, at Moshannon State Forest, 3372 State Park Road, Penfield. The course is required by law for all first-time hunters and trappers before they can purchase a license.

Thank you to everyone who came out for Wednesday’s Disability and Aging Resource Expo at the Johnsonburg Fire Hall. My staff and I enjoyed working with the many vendors who took part, and spending time with all the people who attended the event. We’ve enjoyed partnering with Life and Independence for Today (LIFT) these last three years.
In the photo above, I’m speaking to John Franzoni of Weedville while taking a break from a radio interview. Below, I’m checking out one of the handicap-accessible kayaks that are available at Parker Dam State Park in Penfield. Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources employees Eric Rensel and Carey Huber are also pictured.
