Headline Harrisburg By Matt Gabler



My staff and I have received so many phone calls in these last few weeks from so many groups that are and have been impacted by COVID-19. THANK YOU FOR YOUR VOICES!!

When Gov. Wolf vetoed Senate Bill 613, which would have put many Pennsylvanians back to work by allowing businesses the choice to open safely, my House Republican colleagues and I needed to change course.

We’re now using those groups’ individual voices and going back to work with separate legislation. House Bill 2400, which we passed this week, AND the pressure applied by skilled construction workers resulted in a return to job sites this Friday, May 1. All construction - public and private, residential and commercial - is back on the job one week from today!

Notaries are now allowed to work remotely, which helps some car shoppers and dealerships, but the work’s far from over. We respect the danger posed by COVID-19, but also respect our hardworking employers and employees - especially in small businesses - who have been unnecessarily prevented from supporting their families.

We’ll be in session next week. Some challenges lie ahead. Pennsylvania can be trusted to return to work in a responsible manner and we regard ALL jobs as essential.
 

Displaying the Colors

On Wednesday, the governor unveiled his regional plan that allows the reopening of Pennsylvania in three stages.

  

Standing Up for Workers


House Republicans are being accused of picking profits over people. House Bill 1822, which was passed Tuesday, would seem to contradict that allegation (which is untrue).

I voted for the legislation, which is now being considered in the Senate. I hope my colleagues there will do the same so Gov. Wolf can sign it into law.
 

We Hear You!


Unfortunately, the biggest thing with which we continue to struggle is finding answers to employment questions. More than 1.5 million Pennsylvanians are out of work and at varying stages in the unemployment compensation process, which is far from smooth and being overwhelmed.

Please click here to be directed to a resource that will hopefully answer your questions, including self-employed individuals and independent contractors who are filing for Pandemic Unemployment Assistance.

PITT-BRADFORD GRADS TO CELEBRATE AT HOME WITH FAMILY

 Madi Feeser of East Berlin is one of 265 
Pitt-Bradford graduates who will celebrate
 Commencement with her family and an 
online event on Sunday.
BRADFORD, Pa. -- Although they will be miles apart, members of the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford’s graduating class will put on their caps and gowns to sit down together at 2 p.m. Sunday.

Instead of being surrounded by their 264 classmates in the university’s KOA Arena, they’ll be stationed in front of laptop computers, tablets or even smartphones with the other people in their homes.

Aunts, uncles and cousins who might have traveled with them to Bradford will watch from their own screens in their own homes, as will the faculty and staff who have become a second family over the last few years.

  The university’s usual Commencement exercises at the Richard E. and Ruth McDowell Sport and Fitness Center, as well as commencement at other colleges and universities across the country, have moved online since large gatherings are not possible during the corona-virus pandemic.

A handful of staff will have worked for weeks to create this moment of celebration – interviewing graduating seniors to find out what was most important to them; brainstorming, investigating and learning new technology; soliciting and managing photos and congratulations videos and custom music; keeping track of all that content; shipping regalia; setting up a Zoom version of the annual pre-graduation dinner; creating an electronic slide for reach graduate; and editing, editing, editing.

Staff shipped regalia – the caps, gowns and hoods worn for academic ceremonies – to students last week in time for students to take pictures to submit for the online celebration.

Thomas Dabney’s family had already secured a cap and gown from a family friend for him to wear to a what-was-supposed-to-be-a-surprise backyard graduation party planned for Saturday. But the criminal justice major from Washington, D.C., will now have the chance to don his own fancy academic wear for both the backyard graduation and the online version.

Dabney said a cousin set up the backyard event, complete with mock diploma in a frame. His family now intends to attend both events, just as several members had planned to come to Bradford for Commencement since he is a first-generation graduate.

Nicolette Simon, an exercise science major from Lancaster, is also a first-generation grad. When her regalia arrived, she invited her cousins, who live across the street, to come take photos with her. But the entire family could not resist congratulating her and carefully and quickly broke social distancing protocol to take an extended-family photo.

Before she put on her regalia, Madi Feeser, an athletic training major from East Berlin, had to run to Walmart for a few supplies to decorate her cap. In recent years, decorating caps has become part of the Pitt-Bradford celebration week as students thank parents or God, celebrate their chosen major or career, or just joke around. Feeser said hers was going to say “I’m through with this B.S.”

The Pitt-Bradford Alumni Association is even sponsoring a contest for those who share their decorated caps on social media with the hashtag #UPBGRAD20. There will be prizes for the ones that illustrate the most Panther pride, best major/career specific, most artistic, best pop cultural reference and most inspirational.

Anuja Sharma, an international affairs student from Harrisburg, posted a picture of her cap with the hashtag earlier this week on Facebook. In the picture, her parents smile and hold the cap, which is decorated with a map of the world. “They migrated so I graduated,” it reads. “Proud daughter of immigrants.”

For those who’d like to take part in the online celebration, it can be seen at 2 p.m. Sunday, when the in-person ceremony would have been held, on www.upb.pitt.edu/commencement, on the university’s Facebook page, www.facebook.com/PittBradford/, and YouTube channel, uPittBradford.

Awards at the Honors Convocation recognize students for a wide range of accomplishments, from academic excellence, to overcoming hardships to succeed. Members of the staff and faculty are also celebrated for their commitment to supporting students and for their service to the campus and community.

FNN Article © Friday, April 24, 2020.

LIBERTY TOWNSHIP, PA - Liberty and Morris fire crews, as well as, Forestry staff responded to a land rescue involving a male bicyclist who was involved in an accident on a trail in Liberty Township on Friday afternoon just after 2:00PM.

Fire personnel first located the bicyclist's pickup truck around 2:14PM, as they responded to Mountain Top Road near the Reynolds Road intersection at the scene of a gas well pad and a locked gate. The bicyclist acknowledged that he had gone around the gate and was further down the trail when he had an accident.

Although there was a request for air medical, none could fly due to weather conditions at the time.

911 Dispatcher stayed on the phone with the victim until help arrived.

Firefighters reached the victim around 2:25PM and was able to provide assistance to the injured cyclist. Crews brought out the rescued rider to the ambulance, which was waiting along the Mountain Top Road. The individual was loaded into the ambulance around 2:53PM and he was transported to a hospital for treatment of a head injury he suffered in the crash.

Remember to support your local fire and ambulance departments.

Great job by all who assisted at the scene.

National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, April 19 -25, 2020

In accordance with National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, Potter County President Judge Stephen Minor, together with District Attorney, Andy Watson, and Victim Witness Coordinator, Anita Mead, had various activities planned to honor and remember both local and national victims of crime. The week was to have culminated in a commemorative tree planting and dedication ceremony on the evening of April 24, 2020. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we were unable move forward with those plans.

A young maple tree was donated by the Potter County Victim Impact Panel for the occasion. As a result of the social distancing/stay at home orders issued by Governor Wolf, the maple tree was planted on the Courthouse Square by the Potter County Maintenance Staff earlier this week and, bears a plaque from an anonymous donor with the inscription “Crime Victims’ Rights Week, April 19 -25, 2020. In memory and honor of those we have lost as well as those who continue to persevere. Seek Justice, Ensure Victims’ Rights, Inspire Hope.”

Even with the ongoing crisis, we wish to emphasize how important it is that crime victims are not “lost in a bureaucratic shuffle” and, continue to have a voice that is both loudly and clearly heard. As the plaque says, we will continuously endeavor to seek justice, ensure victims’ rights, and inspire hope.

Bridge Work to Resume Monday in McKean County

Bradford, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that preliminary work to replace a bridge on Westline Road (Route 3006) in Lafayette Township, McKean County, is scheduled to resume Monday, April 27. The bridge spans Kinzua Creek, near the village of Westline. 

The project will upgrade the status of the bridge from “poor” to “good” and provide a new structure that will be in service for decades.

Normal highway and bridge construction projects in Pennsylvania remain paused as part of the commonwealth’s efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. This project is part of critical work that continues statewide addressing safety needs and work needed to eliminate roadway restrictions that could impede the ability for the movement of life sustaining goods and services

Starting Monday, crews will continue construction of a one-lane temporary roadway that will carry traffic around the work zone as the bridge is replaced. This phase of construction is expected to take at least a month. Traffic will then be routed onto the temporary roadway to allow replacement of the existing bridge to begin. PennDOT will issue an update prior to the change in traffic pattern.

The temporary traffic signals currently enforcing an alternating traffic pattern across the existing bridge will remain in place for the duration of the project.

Overall work will include removal of the existing bridge, construction of the new bridge, roadway reconstruction, drainage upgrades, guide rail replacement, and miscellaneous items. Clearwater Construction, Inc. of Mercer, PA is the contractor for this $2.6 million job. All work is weather and schedule dependent.

The existing bridge is 103 feet long and was built in 1941. It will be replaced with a new, two-span composite beam bridge. Average daily traffic on Westline Road is just under 300 vehicles each day. PennDOT expects the new bridge to be open to traffic in the fall of 2020, with placement of an epoxy overlay and seeding taking place next spring.

Bridge Rehabilitation Begins Next Week in Tioga Township, Tioga County

Montoursville, PA – Motorists are advised that a bridge rehabilitation project will begin next week on Route 287 in Tioga Township, Tioga County. The bridge is located a half-mile north of the intersection with Route 1030 and a half-mile south of the intersection with Route 15.

The contractor, Wolyniec Construction, Inc., will complete the 350-foot bridge rehabilitation project, which is expected to take two-years. The work will include removal and replacement of the bridge deck, repair of substructures, new drainage, guiderail upgrades and painting of the existing steel structure as well as associated roadway approach work.

The bridge rehabilitation will begin Monday, April 27, 2020 and work will be completed during daylight hours.

Motorists should expect single lane closures controlled by a temporary traffic signal.

The $3.8 million bridge rehabilitation project is expected to be completed by November 20, 2021, weather permitting.

Motorists should be alert, slow down, expect delays, watch for stopped traffic, and drive with caution through the work zone.

Normal highway and bridge construction projects in Pennsylvania remain paused as part of the commonwealth’s efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. This project is part of critical work that continues statewide addressing safety needs and work needed to eliminate roadway restrictions that could impede the ability for the movement of life sustaining goods and services.
