Emporium Leaders Honored for Service, Dedication

Congratulations to Emporium Borough Mayor Bruno Carnovale and Council President LuAnn Reed, who were recently recognized by the Pennsylvania State Association of Boroughs for their hard work and dedication to their community! Mr. Carnovale earned the “Mayor of the Year” award for his more than 50 years of service to the people of Emporium, while Mrs. Reed earned the “Distinguished Service Award” for her outstanding work on behalf of the borough while serving on council, the Emporium Volunteer Fire Department and several other community organizations. It was a pleasure to present certificates of recognition to both of them in honor of their achievements!
Rural Regional College Earns Final State Approval

More educational opportunities are on their way to our area now that the state Department of Education has given final approval to the Rural Regional College (RRC) of Northern Pennsylvania. This is great news for high school graduates looking to further their education and for people who want to enhance their job skills or are considering a career change.

RRC expects to enroll its first students in the fall, through a partnership with Gannon University. The cost will be $180 per credit and $60 per credit for dual enrollment students.

The college will serve Cameron, Crawford, Elk, Erie, Forest, McKean, Potter, Venango and Warren counties, providing affordable and accessible community college-type services not currently available in the region.

After working toward this goal with the Education Consortium of the Upper Allegheny and officials from throughout the region, it is exciting to see it become a reality for our students and communities.

Strengthening Penalties for DUI

People who have had their driver’s license suspended after a DUI conviction would face higher penalties if they choose to drive during the suspension under legislation recently approved by the state House.

Currently, anyone convicted of a DUI who then operates a vehicle despite their driver’s license suspension faces the same penalty – a $500 fine and 60-90 days in jail -- no matter how many times they get behind the wheel. House Bill 1049 would create a tiered system that increases the penalties with each subsequent offense, up to a $5,000 fine and no less than two years in jail for a fourth offense. In addition, the legislation would allow a judge to impose a maximum five-year jail sentence if the offender is also convicted of homicide by vehicle.

The bill is now with the state Senate.
Attention Parents: New Immunization Requirements for PA Schools This Fall

The Pennsylvania Department of Health has revised Pennsylvania’s school immunization requirements for the 2017-18 school year. The new rules require parents to get their children fully immunized prior to the fifth day of school or the students will be excluded from school. Previously, parents had eight months to meet school immunization requirements.

If a student is in the middle of an immunization series and it is too soon for the next dose, the parents must provide the school nurse with a written plan, signed by their health care provider, within the first five days of school.

For more information, contact your health care provider, visit or call 1-877-PA-HEALTH.
