FAYETTE CO: Troopers Shot. Last night, shortly after 8pm, two troopers assigned to the Criminal Investigation Unit at PSP Uniontown (Troop B) were shot and wounded in Fairchance Borough, Fayette County. 

This occurred as they arranged a meeting with a suspect, 26 y/o Clarence Belsar, who was thought to be selling a stolen item related to recent burglaries in the area. When Belsar saw the troopers approaching, he began to walk away and ignored commands to stop. The troopers attempted to stop Belsar and a struggle ensued. Belsar pulled a handgun and fired one shot, striking both troopers. They returned fire, killing Belsar. 

One of the troopers suffered a wound to the hand and was treated and released. The other suffered a gunshot wound to his abdomen and is listed in serious condition. He is expected to recover. 

The investigation remains active and is being conducted alongside the Fayette County District Attorney's Office. Thank you to everyone offering support, thoughts, and prayers.

Penn State DuBois Students Serve Community for Outreach Day

Students organize documents and prepare a mailing at DuBois Historical Society during Outreach Day 2017
A total of 146 new freshmen, plus their faculty and staff group leaders, reached out to communities throughout the region on Friday for Penn State DuBois Outreach Day. Each year, as part of New Student Orientation, new students volunteer at various charitable and community oriented organizations in the area, giving students a look at the importance of service, while lending a hand to local charities. In all, 17 organizations were served this year, including Habitat for Humanity, The Soul Platter Café, Jefferson County Area Agency on Aging, Tri-County Church, Brockway Depot, Bilger's Rocks, The Salvation Army, Boy Scouts of America, DuBois Historical Society, DuBois Continuum of Care, Gateway Humane Society, The Red Mission House, Rumbarger Cemetery, Special Olympics, The American Red Cross, Children's Aid Society, and CAST.

Each group was led by a campus faculty or staff member, as well as a student orientation leader, who then took students to their work site for the day. They performed landscaping, cleaning, litter pick up, and other duties that met the needs of their specific service site, in order to give back to their local communities around DuBois, Clearfield, Brockway, and beyond.

"It's important that students engage in community service right off the bat. It teaches them about social responsibility and places where they can get involved," said Instructor of Human Development and Family Studies Marly Doty, who organized this service effort with the Office of Student Engagement."That blossoms into future projects, community service trips, and even jobs. They're making connections, meeting people, and giving back. It increases their odds for success and builds a stronger community all at the same time."

The students agreed that making service a part of their orientation helped with building their community ties. Freshman Scot Coble said, "I really like it. It's important to give back to the community and to other people, so that others can enjoy our communities. It's interesting to have this opportunity to get out and learn more about what's here, too."

Fellow freshmen Jerimiah Irvin said, "It's a nice chance to get out and learn more about the community and see where we can help."

Terry O'Connor appreciates that help as the president of the Bilger's Rocks Association. He and fellow association members oversee the park near Garmpian, PA, the surrounds the 320 Million year oldnetwork of giant sand stone boulders, caverns and caves. Here the group cleaned up litter from around the grounds, hung signs, and more.

"The survival of the park depends upon volunteer efforts. We want to take advantage the generosity of people willing to help, and we want them to come use this place, too."

Classes for Penn State DuBois students begin on Monday, August 21

Mosquito Spraying Set for Lycoming County on August 21, 2017

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) will conduct a mosquito control operation to reduce high populations of mosquitoes on August 21, 2017, in portions of South Williamsport Borough and Armstrong Township, Lycoming County.

The treatments will be administered via truck mounted spraying equipment, spraying residential and recreational mosquito habitats. The equipment dispenses Biomist 3+15, applied at a rate of .75 ounces per acre.

This product is designed to provide quick, effective control of adult mosquito populations. Due to the application technique being used, the application material has a very low toxicity profile to mammals and is safe for the environment.

Certain mosquito species carry the West Nile virus, which can cause humans to contract West Nile encephalitis, an infection that can result in an inflammation of the brain. According to the Pennsylvania Department of Health, all residents in areas where virus activity has been identified are at risk of contracting West Nile encephalitis.

So far in 2017, West Nile virus has been detected in Adams, Allegheny, Beaver, Berks, Blair, Bucks, Cambria, Carbon, Centre, Chester, Columbia, Cumberland, Dauphin, Delaware, Erie, Fayette, Franklin, Greene, Lackawanna, Lancaster, Lawrence, Lebanon, Lehigh, Luzerne, Lycoming, Monroe, Montgomery, Montour, Northampton, Northumberland, Perry, Philadelphia, Schuylkill, Union, Washington, Westmoreland and York counties.

Weather conditions and other unexpected events could delay or cancel this spray operation. If conditions do not allow application on August 21, 2017, August 22 will serve as the back-up spray date.

Individuals can take a number of precautionary measures around their homes to help eliminate mosquito-breeding areas, including:

Dispose of cans, buckets, plastic containers, ceramic pots, or similar containers that hold water.

Properly dispose of discarded tires that can collect water. Stagnant water is where most mosquitoes breed.

Drill holes in the bottom of outdoor recycling containers.

Have clogged roof gutters cleaned every year as the leaves from surrounding trees have a tendency to plug drains.

Turn over plastic wading pools when not in use.

Turn over wheelbarrows and don't let water stagnate in birdbaths.

Aerate ornamental pools or stock them with fish.

Clean and chlorinate swimming pools not in use and remove any water that may collect on pool covers.

If a resident has stagnant pools of water on their property, they can buy Bti products at lawn and garden, outdoor supply, home improvement and other stores. This naturally occurring bacterium kills mosquito larvae, but is safe for people, pets, aquatic life and plants.

Additionally, these simple precautions can prevent mosquito bites, particularly for people who are most at risk:

Make sure screens fit tightly over doors and windows to keep mosquitoes out of homes.

Consider wearing long-sleeved shirts, long pants and socks when outdoors, particularly when mosquitoes are most active at dawn and dusk, or in areas known for having large numbers of mosquitoes.

When possible, reduce outdoor exposure at dawn and dusk during peak mosquito periods, usually April through October.

Use insect repellents according to the manufacturer's instructions. An effective repellent will contain DEET, picardin, or lemon eucalyptus oil. Consult with a pediatrician or family physician for questions about the use of repellent on children, as repellent is not recommended for children under the age of two months.
