Golden Afternoons with Donna Emmick is Tuesday, Oct. 9

 Donna Emmick demonstrates one of the 
exercises that can be done by men and 
women 55 and older while sitting in a chair.
This coming Tuesday, Oct. 9, from 1 to 2 p.m., Donna Emmick of Wellsboro is presenting a Golden Afternoons program on Chair PiYo in the Deane Center lobby at 104 Main Street in Wellsboro. It is free and open to people ages 55 and up. Fruit, veggies along with coffee, tea and cookies will be provided free.

"For this Golden Afternoons program, I will be showing participants how to do a modified version of PiYo, a Pilates and yoga fusion workout," said Emmick. "We will do stretching and simple calisthenic moves participants can do at home. During these exercises, we will use chairs for stability. The chairs are placed on top of mats so they do not slide. The moves are done sitting in the chairs or standing near the chair for support. It is a great workout to improve balance, strength and flexibility and helps with blood circulation," she added.

Emmick is certified and licensed in many different fitness formats since first becoming an instructor in 2010. She teaches PiYo Live, Boot Camp and Full Strength through the Wellsboro Department of Parks and Recreation. Classes she has taught in the past include Insanity, Zumba, Butts & Guts, Kettlebell, Indoor Cycling and Cardio Kickboxing.

Game Commission campaign seeks to increase hunter safety.

Scouring nearly 30 years of medical-database records, a group of doctors has found that nearly 40 hunters each year in Pennsylvania experience falls from tree stands that result in traumatic injuries.

On its own, that number might be surprising; even sobering. But it tells only part of the story.

Little is known about the exact number of Pennsylvania hunters who fall from tree stands each year or the reasons why they fall.

But one thing is clear – if every tree-stand user wore a full-body harness and kept it attached to the tree at all times while hunting from or installing or taking down an elevated platform, or climbing or descending trees, 100 percent of severe falls to the ground could be eliminated.

In Pennsylvania, there’s no requirement to report tree-stand falls, and even if there were, some falls inevitably would be missed. But by delving into records available on the Pennsylvania Trauma Systems Foundation database, Dr. Joseph Smith and his colleagues have compiled what’s believed to be the only report on tree-stand falls endured by Pennsylvania hunters.

Reports in the database go back to 1987, and Smith and his colleagues have documented 1,109 from 1987 to 2015. But in most cases, few other details about the falls – including what might have caused them – are available in the database.

“It makes it very hard to say very much,” said Smith, who retired in April after a more than 35-year career in providing critical care, more than 30 of them spent at Geisinger Medical Center in Danville.

Because the database includes only falls that resulted in the victim being taken to an accredited trauma center, it’s hard to tell how many more falls remain undocumented. Hunters who seek medical treatment at non-trauma medical facilities, heal from minor injuries at home – even severely injured fall victims who die before making it to a hospital all are left out of this count.

Falls sustained during preseason setup, postseason tear-down or scouting excursions also could be missed. To better ensure the falls studied were hunting-related, researchers limited their review to falls that occurred within or one day prior to an open deer season.

Game Commissioner Michael Mitrick, a retiree since January after 36 years working as an orthopedist in York, Pa., said he routinely would see three or four patients a year who injured themselves while using tree stands, but likely never went to a trauma center.

Their injuries might range from broken wrists to neck and back sprains to cuts and bruises – generally far less severe than the injuries documented in the report. But these cases help to better understand how frequently falls occur.

Mitrick was one of about 15 orthopedists in the York area. It only stands to reason the others were dealing with a similar number of tree-stand-related injuries, he said.

“So you’re talking about 45 cases a year, just in this one community,” Mitrick said.

And Smith pointed out the number of tree-stand falls in Pennsylvania has trended upward as tree-stands have become more popular.

Based on reports in the injury database, in 1987, fewer than one in 100,000 hunters experienced a tree-stand fall while hunting deer in Pennsylvania. In 2015, almost 12 in 100,000 fell from a stand.

But this increasing problem has a solution – never use a tree stand without wearing a full-body harness that’s connected to the tree.

Today, about 90 percent of the tree stands marketed and sold in the U.S. are produced by companies that are part of the Treestand Manufacturer’s Association, which since 2004 has made it an industry standard to include a full-body harness with each stand, said John Louk, the association’s executive director.

For hunters who need to replace a harness or who just want something different, at least seven companies produce after-market harnesses priced between $49 and $159, he said.

Safety lines, often referred to by the brand name Lifeline, are the most efficient way to remain connected to the tree while climbing or descending, and they cost about $35 each, Louk said.

Using this simple and relatively inexpensive gear, and following other safe behaviors such as climbing with care, always using a haul rope to raise gear into the stand, and to never loading a firearm or nocking a bolt or arrow before settling in, can eliminate severe falls to the ground and help prevent serious injury and death.

To better raise awareness of safe hunting from tree stands, the Pennsylvania Game Commission has launched its Hunt Safely, Wear a Harness campaign. The campaign logo, which is appearing on billboards, signs and print and digital advertisements, serves as a frequent reminder for hunters to use fall restraints every time they hunt from a tree stand, and to never leave the ground without being connected to the tree.

“When hunting from a tree stand, it’s just as important to bring your harness with you every time you go out as it is to bring your firearm or bow, and we want all hunters to understand that,” said Steve Smith, who heads the Game Commission’s Bureau of Information and Education.

So as you head afield this fall, Hunt Safely, Wear a Harness every time you hunt from a tree stand.

And return home safely to share the stories of every hunt.

Climbing Connected

Wearing a full-body harness is essential to staying safe when using a tree stand, but a harness can prevent falls to the ground only if it is connected to the tree.

That means you must wear your harness, and be sure it’s connected to the tree, at all times you’re in the stand, as well as when you’re getting into and out of the stand, or climbing or descending trees.

A hunter using a climbing stand should tie-in the safety rope or strap that pairs with the harness before beginning to climb.

Most safety ropes and straps have a sewn or knotted loop on one end, and the opposite end can be wrapped around the tree and through the loop, then cinched tightly. There’s often a separate loop, many times a carabiner loop held by a prussic knot, onto which to clip your safety harness.

Consult the manufacturer’s instructions to ensure proper installation.

You’ll want to move the safety rope or strap up the tree first, then tighten it, each time before moving the platform up the tree. If the rope is at or slightly above eye-level as you stand on the platform, you should have plenty of room to raise the platform to a higher standing position before moving the rope up the tree again before climbing.

Make sure you have proper contact with the stand and tree every time you move.

It takes only a little longer to climb with a rope, and if the stand fails due to breakage or a pin pulling out of the climbing band, or if a fall occurs because slippage or loss of balance, the harness and rope will prevent falling to the ground.

With pre-installed hang-on stands – and especially ladder stands – the most practical way to stay connected to the tree is through a safety line, commonly referred to by the brand name Lifeline, that hangs to the ground from above the platform.

Because the safety line is installed above the platform, the tree must be climbed first, but other safety ropes or straps can be used along with your harness. When installing a safety line at a hang-on stand, a linemen’s style belt can be worn while ascending the tree. A linemen’s belt might not be an option for many ladder stands, but a separate ladder and linemen’s belt could be used to install the safety line before the ladder stand is installed.

When using a ladder stand, climbing stick or tree steps, make sure to maintain three points of contact (two hands and one foot, or two feet and one hand) with each step.

The important points are to always take your time and be safe when using stands. Always put on your safety harness while you’re still on the ground, and keep it connected to the tree at all times until you’re back on the ground.

JKLM Energy Hosts Operations Tour of active Potter County operations

POTTER COUNTY, Pa. – JKLM Energy, LLC (JKLM) recently hosted county and local government leaders, representatives of conservation organizations, and other guests on a field tour of the company’s active Potter County operations. The tour included a visit to a drilling rig, a completions operation, and a producing well site.

“JKLM Energy recognizes that the community has a great interest in natural gas development in Potter County, and one of the best ways to share information is to show our neighbors first-hand what takes place on well pads throughout the various stages of development,” said Scott Blauvelt, Director of Environmental Health & Safety.

During the tour, JKLM professionals discussed the company’s history and modern technologies that have enabled America’s shale revolution. Tour participants learned about best practices and rigorous safety protocols that the company uses to responsibly produce affordable, clean, and reliable energy.

“Every time I attend a tour, I learn something. I gained a better understanding of an industry that is constantly progressing. It was good to see the safety protocols that JKLM takes to protect the environment and local community,” said Borough Manager Beverley Morris.

JKLM operates solely in Potter County where the company has primarily concentrated its efforts on developing gas from the Utica Shale formation. For the past two years, JKLM has operated one drilling rig and it plans to continue to do so for the foreseeable future as it drills an expected 14 wells in 2018. JKLM is currently the second largest Utica Shale gas producing company in the state.

“Our mission is to responsibly develop shale resources to advance our energy security, protect and improve our environment, and add to the economic vitality and quality of life in the region,” said Blauvelt. “It is a privilege to operate in this community and we are proud to be in Potter County.”

Since she’s been in the ESS program, Amber was hired as a cleaner at the Knights of Columbus, DCI, the Drop-In Center, as well as, working in the produce department at a local grocery store.

“If you know a company or manager that wants to learn more about hiring individuals from this program, please contact Dickinson Center,” added Linton. “We’re also currently seeking new Employment Specialists for this program in Elk County.”

To coincide with this year’s observance, the county commissioners in Cameron, Elk and Potter counties are presenting a proclamation during their October meetings. They’re joining DCI and other regional employers in raising awareness about disability employment issues and their commitment to an inclusive work culture.

"Dickinson Center is proud to be a part of this year's National Disability Employment Awareness Month," said Marsha Dippold, director of Employment Support Services. "We want to spread the important message that we value all perspectives in the workplace, including those of individuals with disabilities. Thank you to our consumers, staff, employers and community supporters for showcasing the success of our program which had an 86 percent job placement rate for our consumers over the past year."

Employment Support Services (ESS) strives to find jobs for people with disabilities that are best suited to the individual’s strengths in Elk, Cameron, McKean and Potter counties. Individuals are provided assistance through the entire job search process, from constructing resumes, practicing interview skills, and applying for jobs. The support continues after being hired until the employee, employer, and employment specialist are all confident that the job can be performed independently.

Additional opportunities are available from Elkwood Arts at DCI, a licensed vocational facility that provides employment and training to disabled adults at different levels of intellectual disability. Products include quality, handmade furniture and wood items.

Ag Committee Discusses CWD with PA Deer Farmers

The House Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee, which I chair, had the opportunity to visit a Harrisburg-area deer farm and talk with the owners and other members of the Pennsylvania Deer Farmers Association (PDFA) on Tuesday. Much of the discussion was focused on chronic wasting disease (CWD), the extensive efforts deer farmers are taking to prevent this deadly disease in their herds, and the challenges it presents to their livelihoods. Thank you to the Schmidt family, owners of Rocky Meadow Whitetails, and to PDFA for organizing this informative tour and discussion.

Feds Extend REAL ID Grace Period

Pennsylvania has been granted an extended grace period to comply with REAL ID requirements set by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. The grace period was set to expire Oct. 10, 2018, but has now been extended until Aug. 1, 2019. A final federal deadline for all states to comply is Oct. 1, 2020.

This grace period extension means that Pennsylvania residents will not face access issues when entering federal facilities or boarding commercial aircraft through at least Aug. 1, 2019.

REAL ID is voluntary for Pennsylvania residents, but encouraged for those who may need to access certain federal facilities, such as military bases, or fly commercial flights within the United States. Residents also have the option to use other, non-REAL ID forms of enhanced identification. Click here for that list

Residents wishing to obtain REAL ID-compliant driver’s licenses and photo ID cards can obtain them, beginning in March 2019. In the meantime, customers are encouraged to pre-verify for REAL ID the required documentation as soon as possible, giving them ample time to prepare.
One of the required documents is a certified copy of a birth certificate, which can take up to several months to process, depending on one’s circumstances. My office can help residents with birth certificate applications. Call or stop by for more information.

More information about REAL ID, including frequently asked questions, can be found at

To honor those who have fought breast cancer or are fighting it now, the fountain at the Pennsylvania State Capitol’s East Wing was dyed pink on Tuesday for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The pink fountain is also a reminder to all women of the importance of mammograms and early detection. This week, the House also passed House Resolution 1048 recognizing October 2018 as “National Breast Cancer Awareness Month” and Oct. 19, 2018, as “National Mammography Day” in Pennsylvania. The American Cancer Society estimates that 268,670 women and men in the United States will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer this year, and that’s why it is important to continue to educate the public about breast cancer and stress the importance of routine self-breast exams, regularly scheduled doctor visits and yearly mammograms as recommended.
