Giving Our Emergency Responders What They Deserve

Click here to view video.
                                   
The House is preparing to vote on a package of legislation designed to support the emergency responders who serve our communities in the time of greatest need.

I was recently asked about the importance of and need for these bills, and appreciate you taking a few minutes to click on the link above and watch a recording of that interview.
 

My Bill to Support Local Jobs Becomes Law


While remaining a major employer in Pennsylvania, the coal industry can be a difficult line of work due to the economy and fluctuations in the markets.

To that end, legislation I authored that scores a victory for job creators and their workers has become law.

Please click here for more information on Act 74 of 2019.
 

Not Every Hero Wears a Cape!


This Sunday, Oct. 6,
through Saturday, Oct. 12, is Fire Prevention Week across the country.

This year’s theme, set by the National Fire Protection Association, is “Not Every Hero Wears a Cape. Plan and Practice Your Escape.” The goal is to recognize the everyday people who motivate their households to develop and practice a home fire escape plan and to encourage others to implement these basic behaviors that can save lives.

With today’s homes being filled with synthetic materials that burn hotter and faster, residents may have as little as two minutes to safely exit a burning structure.

A home escape plan includes working smoke alarms on every level of the home, in every bedroom and near all sleeping areas. It also includes two ways out of every room, usually a door and a window, with a clear path to an outside meeting place that is a safe distance from the home. Finally, home escape plans should be practiced at least twice a year by all members of the household.

For additional information about Fire Prevention Week and home escape planning, visit www.firepreventionweek.org.
 
 
If You Live in St Marys….



In case you haven't noticed, the road and wall repair project on Route 120 near the railroad crossing just west of Quala-Die, Inc. is underway.

Overall work will include roadway repair and paving, removal of the existing retaining wall and construction of a new wall, shoulder repair, guide rail installation, new curb and sidewalk.

Traffic control will feature daytime lane restrictions with roadway flaggers enforcing an alternating traffic pattern. Drivers should plan for short travel delays and lane restrictions in the work zone will be lifted at the end of work each day.

The project should be finished by early November.
 

Thank You for Your Service!

Photo by John EatonShown are members of Choir, Too and the Children's Concert Choir who will be singing during the Hamilton-Gibson Children and Youth Choirs' Autumn Chorale this Sunday, Oct. 6.

The Autumn Chorale concert featuring the 50 members of the Hamilton-Gibson Children and Youth Choirs is this Sunday, Oct. 6 at 2:30 p.m. in St. Paul's Episcopal Church on the corner of Pearl and Charles Streets, across from The Green in Wellsboro.

Julie Schlosser is the director of the Young Women's Choir, grades 9-12. Thomas Putnam directs both the Young Men's Choir, grades 9-12 and the Children's Concert Choir, grades 5-8. Director of Choir, Too, grades 2-4 is Cheryl Hein Walters. Parker Neal is the accompanist for all four choirs. The involved fifth through twelfth grade singers represent four school districts, Northern Tioga, Southern Tioga and Wellsboro Area in Tioga County and Galeton in Potter County.

Selections to be performed by the four choirs reflect this year's theme, which is based on an Ancient Rune: "The sky above me. The Earth below me. Fire within." "Through song we are exploring the earth and our responsibility in caring for it," Putnam said. "This includes the ground we stand on, the air we breathe and the skies above."

The Young Men and Youth Women's choirs will open the program with “Emerald Stream” by Seth Houston. Its message is environmental stewardship.

Among the other songs to be sung will be “Stars I Shall Find” by the Young Men's Choir; “Path to the Moon” and the unique “Four Grassi Lakes Seasons” by the Children's Concert Choir; and “For the Beauty of the Earth” by the Young Women's Choir.

All four choirs will join in singing "You Are Mine" with words and music by David Haas and "Fun with Fruit" by John Hoffacker. They will conclude the program with the rousing “Let the River Run” with words and music by Carly Simon.

Admission at the door is $8 for adults and $4 for students and children.

This concert is the kickoff for the choirs' annual Poinsettia Sale. The poinsettias are red and come in two sizes, a six-inch pot for $15 and a seven-inch pot for $20. The sale will end on Friday, Nov. 22 and the poinsettias will be delivered on Wednesday, Dec. 4.

Information about depression, suicide awareness and prevention, and other services available through the church's Comfort Ministries was provided by Albin and Mack to theatergoers.

This Sunday, Oct. 6 at 10:30 a.m., the United Methodist Church of Wellsboro at 36 Main Street is hosting a special church service. "It will be an experience of community connection and hope for those who attend," said Pastor Rich Hanlon. "Everyone is welcome."

Pastor Hanlon's message will be about suicide awareness, prevention and survivor support based on the mission statement included in the Methodist Church Book of Discipline. He will talk about the importance of the church and community reaching out to people who are depressed and thinking about suicide or who have been impacted by the loss of a loved one.

"The entire service will revolve around the subject of suicide," said Lory Albin. As part of the service, Albin is giving her testimony about being a survivor of a loved one's suicide.

During the service, the Hamilton-Gibson Young Women and Young Men's Choirs will sing “Please Stay.” It is an anthem for hope — an attempt to destigmatize mental illness and challenge everyone to help save a life by supporting those who are battling depression and have thoughts of suicide. The piece was commissioned by the Ohio Choral Directors Association College and University Commissioning Consortium and composed by Jake Runestad in 2016.

Albin chairs the church's Survivors United in Hope ministry for those affected by suicide loss. In September, she and Cathy Mack staffed a resource table at each of the five performances of Hamilton-Gibson's production of "Every Brilliant Thing." The play addressed depression and suicide. The resource table, provided by the United Methodist Church of Wellsboro, included information about suicide awareness, prevention and survivor support to help people suffering from depression or who knew of someone who was.

"Suicide statistics are staggering," Albin said. "Every 40 seconds someone takes their life in the United States. And I know from personal experience that losing someone to suicide is life changing."
