Gov. Wolf: As Powerful Winter Storms Reach Pennsylvania, Travelers Should Prepare and Heed Forecasts

Harrisburg, PA – On the busiest travel weekend of the year and with ice and snow forecast tonight through Tuesday, Governor Tom Wolf is alerting all Pennsylvanians and travelers to the state to be prepared for potentially significant travel impacts.
“As always, the safety of everyone in the state is my priority,” Gov. Wolf said. “The Thanksgiving holiday weekend will end with some potentially dangerous winter weather, making safety and preparedness even more important as folks travel. Please heed the advice of weather forecasters and emergency professionals and consider altering travel plans if necessary. I want everyone to have had a wonderful holiday weekend and safe travel is tantamount to that goal.”
Beginning in southwestern Pennsylvania this evening and traveling northeast, much of the state will feel the effects of two powerful winter storms that have made their way across the country, bringing with them snow, ice, heavy winds and difficult travel conditions.
The most significant impact of the storm will be felt in the northern tier to the Laurel Highlands across southern Pennsylvania, but all parts of the state could experience sleet and freezing rain, power outages and downed trees depending on how temperatures settle in overnight.
From Sunday evening through Tuesday morning, much of the state will see snowfall with northeast Pennsylvania experiencing the highest amounts, potentially topping 10 inches before the storm exits the state Tuesday morning.
"With a storm like this, a difference of just a few degrees can quickly change weather and road conditions," said Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency Director Randy Padfield. "Make sure you have emergency supplies in your car if you must travel, and stay in touch with neighbors so you can help each other if you lose power."
Gov. Wolf asked Pennsylvanians to please stay home if possible, but if you must travel, check available PennDOT and Pennsylvania Turnpike resources for the latest information, consider getting ahead of the storm by leaving earlier or alter your route to avoid impacted areas.
Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles, including color-coded winter conditions on 2,900 miles, by visiting www.511PA.com. 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information, and access to more than 950 traffic cameras. 511PA is also available through a free smartphone application for iPhone and Android devices, by calling 5-1-1, or by following regional twitter alerts accessible on the 511PA website.
For more information on PennDOT’s winter preparations and additional winter-driving resources for motorists, visit the department’s winter website, www.PennDOT.gov/winter.
For a list of up-to-the-minute travel advisories for the Pennsylvania Turnpike, visit here or view a travel conditions map to help you safely plan your trip.
The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC) advised Pennsylvanians to write down, print or save toll-free outage hotlines for your electric utility and/or your natural gas utility, which are listed on your monthly bills and posted on the PUC website. The PUC also encourages Pennsylvanians to call their utility company if an outage occurs and not to assume someone else has already done so.
Gov. Wolf also reminded Pennsylvanians that the application period is open for the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) to help families living on low incomes pay their heating bills in the form of a cash grant.
“Making sure all Pennsylvanians are safe and healthy is my top priority every day, but especially as we conclude the busiest travel weekend of the year,” said Gov. Wolf. “I cannot stress enough the importance for everyone to heed weather forecasts, listen to directions from emergency officials, plan accordingly, and check in on your neighbors, especially the elderly.”

Breanna Susan Winicki, 25, of Cuba, NY

Breanna Susan Winicki

Breanna Susan Winicki, 25, of Cuba, NY ended her battle with pain, suffering, loss, and addiction early Tuesday morning November 26th. 

Breanna was a smart, talented, and loving young lady. She graduated with honors from Cuba-Rushford High School. She was a very talented saxophone player and played in the high school band and Jazz Band. She also had a beautiful voice and sang with different choruses, from high school choir and Pop Group to county and state-wide choirs. 

She had a very promising future but when her Dad passed away from cancer when she was 16 years old, her whole life fell apart. She struggled with grief and then addiction as she grappled with her difficulties.

But she persevered and determined to try and get her life back together, she began attending J.C.C. in Olean, N.Y. in August where she was doing very well. She loved calculus, her teacher, and was very proud of herself for having a 100+ average. Breanna always excelled when it came to applying herself mentally and solving puzzles. 

Breanna had a very loving and supportive family who wanted to see her do well. She also had some wonderful friends – Hannah Gaeta, Patrick Chesney, Kandice Horn, and several others. Her family and friends knew that she was doing the best she could, but I always knew that she still had that hole in her heart in the shape of her father. We are heartbroken for her, and by her loss. 

She will be missed by; her mother, Laura Noll, stepfather, Steve Noll, sisters, Bridgette, Brooke, and Macy Winicki, stepsisters, Kayla and Jocelyn Noll, stepmother, Beth Arford, maternal grandparents, Fred and Mary Jane Kunderman, precious nephew, Auden Irving, paternal grandparents, Glenn Clark and Sue Winicki, and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Breanna was predeceased by her father, Eric Winicki, in 2011.

Breanna Susan Winicki’s memorial service will be held at the Mark F. Rinker Funeral Home & Memorial Service, Inc, 9 Bull Street Cuba, N.Y. on Monday, December 2nd from 5pm to 8pm.

2020 PENNSYLVANIA FISHING LICENSES, PERMITS AND GIFT VOUCHERS TO GO ON SALE DECEMBER 1!

HARRISBURG, Pa. (November 26) – Just in time for the holiday season, the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) is excited to announce that 2020 fishing licenses go on sale beginning December 1!

“When you buy a fishing license now, you really get the most value for your dollar,” said Amber Nabors, Director of the PFBC Bureau of Outreach, Education and Marketing. “Not only will you be covered for every fishing season for the rest of this year and next year, but if you like to buy your license at a store, you can avoid the long lines we often see around the start of the spring trout season.”


All fishing licenses and related permits purchased now are valid for up to 13 months, from December 2019 through December 31, 2020. Licenses and permits can be purchased at www.gonefishingpa.com, at more than 700 issuing agents, county treasurers’ offices and at all PFBC regional offices.

In addition to licenses and permits, such as the trout/salmon or Lake Erie permits, customers may choose to purchase vouchers that can be given as gifts and be redeemed by recipients.

“We are always looking for ways to spend more time with our families and friends,” said Nabors. “Vouchers make great gifts for the avid angler in your life or even someone new to the sport. If you want to introduce someone to fishing, buying them a license voucher can be the nudge they need to join you on the water this year.”

The price of an annual resident fishing license this year is still $22.90. Multi-year options are also available in 3, 5 and 10 year increments. The most popular add-ons, a trout-salmon permit and a Lake Erie permit cost $9.90 each, or $15.90 for a combination permit. Once again for the 2020 license year, customers can purchase a collectible fishing license button for $10. This year’s button features a pumpkinseed sunfish design and is customized with the angler’s individual license number (buttons are not issued at the time of purchase and will be mailed to the buyer within 3-4 weeks).

In 2020, anglers who visit a license issuing agent in-person can receive the Fishing Summary book free of charge. The book, which outlines current fishing regulations and laws, seasons and creel limits, and safety information also includes advertising and coupons. An identical, digital version of the Fishing Summary book can be viewed and printed for free at www.FishInPA.com, or viewed on the free FishBoatPA mobile app for smart phones.

“Pennsylvania anglers have a lot to look forward to this year,” added Nabors. “In 2020, we will be more than doubling the number of trophy-sized trout being stocked in lakes and streams across the state and extending many of our Keystone Select Stocked Trout Waters. We’ll also be increasing the number of Golden Rainbow Trout that we stock prior to the trout season and stocking them in-season for the first time ever. The FishBoatPA app can help you keep track of stocking locations and the expanded special regulation areas closest to you.”

Customers purchasing a 2020 license can once again can support their favorite PFBC programs through the purchase of voluntary permits for Bass, Musky, Wild Trout and Enhanced Waters, and Habitat/Waterways Conservation. These permits are not required for fishing and carry no additional privileges, but all funds generated through them are reinvested into their respective program.

While youth anglers under age 16 do not require a fishing license, they must have either a Voluntary Youth Fishing License ($2.90) or a free Mentored Youth Fishing Permit to participate in various youth opportunities throughout the season. This includes the Mentored Youth Trout Fishing Days, which occur the week before the opening of the regional and statewide openers in each area.

The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission is a user-funded agency that operates primarily on funds generated through the sale of fishing licenses, boating registrations and associated fees. The PFBC receives no Pennsylvania General Fund tax revenue to support its programs.

Important 2020 Fishing Dates:

December 1, 2019 – 2020 Fishing Licenses On Sale

March 28 -- Regional Mentored Youth Trout Day (18 southeastern counties)

April 4 – Regional Opening Day of Trout Season

April 11 – Statewide Mentored Youth Trout Day

RECALLS

UNFI Voluntarily Recalls Wild Harvest® Organic All-Purpose Flour, Unbleached
UNFI announced today a voluntary national recall of five-pound bags of its Wild Harvest® Organic All-Purpose Flour, Unbleached, with a Code of AA BEST IF USED BY 010820 CC 15:58 and UPC Code 711535509158. The recall is being issued for the potential presence of E. coli. During routine FDA sampling of the five-pound bag product, results were found to be positive for E.coli.

E. coli can cause serious and sometimes life-threatening infections in infants, older people, pregnant women, and people with weakened immune systems. The most common symptoms of E. coli are diarrhea, abdominal cramps, nausea and vomiting, which develop within three or four days of eating contaminated food. The illness usually lasts about a week and most people recover without treatment. Guidance from FDA and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) continues to warn that consumers should refrain from consuming any raw products made with flour and that all surfaces, hands and utensils should be properly cleaned after contact with flour or dough.

To date, UNFI has not received any direct consumer reports of confirmed illnesses related to this product. This recall is being issued out of an abundance of care.

Think About It............

I Failed At Retirement

by Pastor B.J. Knefley

Seven years ago, I retired from Pastoral Ministry. I’d like to say that I’ve done well at retirement, but I haven’t. The first free Sunday, I preached. My sister asked what I was doing after I retired and when I told her, she replied “Yup, you failed”.

Actually, for the first couple of years I didn’t do too bad with keeping my speaking engagements to a minimum. I bought a sailboat, (4 actually) and took up sailing. We did some traveling and generally enjoyed several different pastimes. But eventually my mouth was saying yes to various ministry commitments while by heart was screaming NO. In case you didn’t know this is called stress.

The last two years have been the worst. I’ve been preaching most weekends. I did take some time off to have open heart surgery, but even with that I was back into the daily grind of message preparation and speaking. For those that don’t know, message preparation is usually 15-20 hours. The presentation, although usually only 30 minutes, is very draining for me. Why? Simply because it’s not just words. I’m very passionate about what I’m sharing, and it drains me of energy. Sadly the 20 pounds I shed at the beginning of my retirement has found its way back. Again, simply because of stress. So, I’m trying another round at retirement.

I just finished my last scheduled speaking engagement, and I’m relieved. I have nothing on the horizon to prepare for and I don’t plan on changing that. It feels good but will I remember my resolve to keep it that way? My last message was about what we leave behind and frankly there are things I want to change and do in my remaining time that I have left. We can easily find ourselves in busy work that has no value. I like to spend more time with my family and people in general. Not the masses but individuals. I want to do more distinctive writing. So I’m setting out on a new journey. In part I’ll be reevaluating everything I do. Perhaps we all should try this every once in a while. 

Think about it.

USDA's Recommendations for a Safe Thanksgiving

WASHINGTON, Nov. 25, 2019 – Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on the things we are most thankful for and to enjoy a delicious meal with loved ones. Some take the lead for meal preparation while others share the responsibility. No matter how your meal comes together, everyone must work together to prevent foodborne illness.


“With large meals come food safety risks, so when I prepare my family’s Thanksgiving dinner, I keep food safety in the forefront,” said Dr. Mindy Brashears, the USDA’s Deputy Under Secretary for Food Safety. “Washing hands properly, keeping the raw turkey away from other ingredients, cooking turkey to a safe internal temperature of 165°F, and promptly refrigerating all of our leftovers within 2 hours after mealtime are all ways we keep our meal safe.” Follow these tips from USDA to ensure a food safe meal this Thanksgiving.

Tip 1: Wash your hands

The first step to safe food preparation is always handwashing. Handwashing reduces the risk of foodborne illness and is especially important after handling raw meat, poultry, seafood and egg products. In a recent USDA study, participants shockingly failed to wash their hands sufficiently nearly 100 percent of the time. Follow these five simple steps to wash your hands properly and keep your loved ones safe:

Wet your hands with clean, running water, turn off the tap, and apply soap.
Lather your hands by rubbing them together with the soap. Be sure to lather the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails.
Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds. Need a timer? Hum the “Happy Birthday” song from beginning to end twice.
Rinse your hands well under clean, running water.
Dry your hands using a clean towel.

Tip 2: Prevent cross-contamination

Turkeys can be large and hard to handle, which makes the risk of cross-contamination higher during Thanksgiving meal preparation. Turkeys may contain Salmonella and Campylobacter, common pathogens that can cause foodborne illness. Our recent study found that 60% of sinks were contaminated after handling raw poultry in the sink, so if you handle your turkey in the sink, be sure to fully clean and sanitize your sink and other surfaces after handling your raw turkey and before prepping any other Thanksgiving sides and dishes

To clean surfaces, wash them with soap and warm water to remove dirt and debris. Then use a solution of chlorine bleach or an alcohol-based solution to sanitize. Sanitizing will reduce the number of bacteria present on a surface and ultimately leave your sinks, counters, and other surfaces safe from harmful bacteria.

Tip 3: Cook the turkey to 165°F

The only way to kill bacteria is to fully cook your turkey and any other dishes with raw meat, poultry, or egg products. They must be cooked to a safe internal temperature as measured by a food thermometer. To properly take the internal temperature of your turkey, test it in three areas — the thickest part of the breast, the innermost part of the wing, and the innermost part of the thigh. Once all three locations reach 165°F, the bird is safe to eat. If one of those locations does not register at 165°F, then continue cooking until all three locations reach the correct internal temperature.

Tip 4: Follow the two-hour rule

It’s tempting to go back for seconds (or even thirds), but perishable foods are only safe out on the table or buffet for two hours. After two hours, food will be in the Danger Zone, temperatures between 40-140°F, where bacteria can rapidly multiply and cause the food to become unsafe. Make sure all leftovers are placed in the refrigerator within two hours to safely enjoy them later. Put them in small, shallow containers. If foods have been left out for more than two hours, they should be discarded.

Tip 5: Ask your questions!

If you have any questions this Thanksgiving, you can call the USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline at 1-888-MPHotline (1-888-674-6854) to talk to a food safety expert or chat live at ask.usda.gov from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern Time, Monday through Friday. If you need help on Thanksgiving Day, the Meat and Poultry Hotline is available from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Eastern Time.

You can also visit FoodSafety.gov to learn more about how to safely select, thaw and prepare a turkey. For more Thanksgiving food safety tips, follow FSIS on Twitter @USDAFoodSafety or on Facebook at Facebook.com/FoodSafety.gov. Happy holidays!

SUNDAY HUNTING BILL SIGNED INTO LAW IN PENNSYLVANIA

Expanded opportunities coming in 2020.

It’s official: expanded Sunday hunting is coming to Pennsylvania in 2020.

Gov. Tom Wolf today signed into law Senate Bill 147, which permits additional hunting on three Sundays per calendar year – one within the archery deer season, one within the firearms deer season and one selected by the Pennsylvania Game Commission.

The law will take effect Feb. 25, 2020, and the first new Sunday hunting opportunities will be identified by the Game Commission thereafter.

In Pennsylvania, Sunday hunting generally is limited to the hunting of foxes, coyotes, crows and feral hogs during open seasons.

Introduced by state Sen. Dan Laughlin, R-Erie, Senate Bill 147 passed the state House of Representatives by a 144-54 vote Oct. 29, then passed the state Senate by a 38-11 vote Nov. 18.

Game Commission Executive Director Bryan Burhans said today’s signing of Senate Bill 147 by Gov. Wolf is a win for Pennsylvania’s hunters.

“People today tend to lead busy lives, and hunters are no exception,” Burhans said. “No matter how badly a hunter might want to get out and enjoy the outdoors during hunting season, other responsibilities might take priority and make it difficult.

“Providing opportunity to experience hunting on previously closed Sundays has game-changing potential for hunters with tight schedules and, in many cases, will make a difference by enabling those hunters to hunt alongside their children, setting them on a path they’ll follow the rest of their lives,” Burhans said. “To Sen. Dan Laughlin and to all of those who supported the bill and helped to make it a reality, please accept a heartfelt thank you on behalf of the Game Commission and hunters statewide.”

Laughlin, Chair of the Senate Game and Fisheries Committee, said the new law will create opportunities for tens of thousands of working families across Pennsylvania.

“I believe this has been a long time in coming and is truly a tribute to the thousands of hunters and the many organizations who have supported this effort,” he said. “Weekends are essentially the only time that most working men and women can get out into the woods. The same could be said for many young people, the ones who represent the future of the sport. Lifting the ban will give them increased opportunities to pursue the activity that they love.”

Sen. Jim Brewster, D-McKeesport, who serves on the Senate Game and Fisheries Committee as Minority Chair, sees the new law as an important tool in helping to recruit new hunters and keep them active.

“Sunday hunting will boost interest in the sport and open up new opportunities for hunters who are unable to get into the woods on other days of the week,” Brewster said. “I have been a longtime supporter of adding days when hunters are able to be in the field.

“This law will create access yet provide reasonable protections for farmers and landowners,” he said. “Sunday hunting will allow us to usher in new generations of sportsmen and women to enjoy our woodlands.”

Prior to passing the House of Representatives, Senate Bill 147 was amended to require all hunters on private land on the selected Sundays to carry written permission from the landowner. This requirement does not apply on Sundays when only foxes, coyotes, crows and feral hogs may be hunted.

The bill also gives Game Commission officers the authority to investigate private-land trespassing complaints and enforce trespassing violations as a primary offense. Previously, trespassing violations were referred to police unless a Game & Wildlife Code violation also was alleged. Once the new law takes effect, hunting-related private-land trespassing violations will be enforced year-round by the Game Commission.
