PennDOT, Police Focused on Reducing Impaired Driving Crashes through Labor Day
Harrisburg – As part of the national enforcement initiative, "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over,” PennDOT, state police and municipal police are focusing their efforts on reducing alcohol-and drug-related crashes through Labor Day.
"Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is unsafe and it’s against the law,” PennDOT Secretary Barry J. Schoch said. “Although alcohol-related crashes have gradually decreased, drugged-driving crashes and fatalities continue to increase. Both remain our focus though Labor Day and beyond.”
PennDOT statistics for 2012 show there were 3,306 drug-related crashes statewide, with 126 fatalities in those crashes. In 2013, there were 3,267 drug-related crashes statewide with 143 fatalities.
The same data also shows that alcohol-related crashes decreased from 11,956 in 2012 to 11,023 in 2013. Fatalities in those crashes decreased from 404 in 2012 to 369 in 2013.
During last year's Labor Day weekend, there were 150 alcohol-related crashes and two fatalities as well as 47 drug-related crashes and seven fatalities.
Statewide police statistics show that there were 54,121 driving under the influence (DUI) arrests in 2013, a decrease from 56,317 in 2012. DUI-drug arrests continue to account for a larger percentage of these arrests, with 18,987 such arrests in 2013, an increase from 17,064 in 2012.
The legal blood-alcohol content in Pennsylvania is 0.08 for motorists over the age of 21. Driving under the influence penalties can include jail time, license suspension and fines of between $500 and $5,000.
Pennsylvania's DUI Task Forces, the Pennsylvania State Police and local law enforcement statewide will conduct checkpoints and roving patrols as part of the crackdown.
Funding comes from part of PennDOT's statewide distribution of $4.2 million in federal funds from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Death Of Allegany Teenager At NY College Ruled Accidental Drowning
On August 26, 2014, at approximately 2:25 p.m. State Police responded to the Paul Smith’s College campus to investigate a report of a death.
The body of 19-year-old Nicolas G. Pendl of Allegany, New York was found on the shoreline of Lower St. Regis Lake. Pendl was found face-down in the water a short distance behind the Clinton dorms. No life-saving measures were taken due to obvious signs of death.
Franklin County Coroner Ronald B. Keough authorized removal of the body to AMC Saranac Lake. An autopsy is scheduled today for 9:30 a.m. and will be performed by Dr. C Francis Varga.
The preliminary investigation indicates that there are no signs of foul play and that a pre-existing medical condition may have contributed to Pendl’s death.
The cause and manner of death remains under investigation by the New York State Police in Ray Brook.
UPDATE: On August 27, 2014, Dr. C. Francis Varga performed an autopsy on the body of Nicolas G. Pendl at Adirondack Medical Center in Saranac Lake.
Dr. Varga determined the cause of death to be asphyxiation due to fresh water drowning which was precipitated by a seizure. Pendl had a known, preexisting seizure disorder. Franklin County Coroner Ronald B. Keough ruled the manner of death to be accidental.

Hearing Again Rescheduled for Hilcorp Application for Gas Well Spacing Units
HARRISBURG -- The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) today announced that hearing officer Michael Bangs has rescheduled the public hearing sessions on an Application for Gas Well Spacing Units, or spacing order, received from Hilcorp Energy Co., for October 27 and 28.
Hilcorp Energy Co. is applying for a well spacing order that establishes four gas well drilling units on 3,267 acres to drill into the Utica Shale Formation in Pulaski Township, Lawrence County and Shenango Township, Mercer County.
Under the Oil and Gas Conservation Law of 1961, when a spacing order application is submitted, an administrative hearing must be held prior to a final decision on the application.
On July 11, the hearing officer rescheduled the hearing sessions for September 16 and 17, after two previous postponements. Due to a scheduling conflict, Hilcorp requested new hearing dates. At the request of the hearing officer, the parties determined agreeable dates for the hearing.
On Aug. 5, the intervening property owners renewed their Motion to Stay, which would delay the hearing pending a final ruling by the Commonwealth Court on a related matter. On Aug. 11, hearing officer Bangs denied the motion.
The first hearing session has been rescheduled for October 27 and 28. The hearing session will begin at 10 a.m. and 9 a.m. respectively and be held at the Albert P. Gettings Government Center Annex of the Lawrence County Government Center, Assembly Room, 349 Countyline St., New Castle.
The first two-day hearing session will accept testimony on the spacing order application. DEP, Hilcorp and property owners and operators in the area subject to the order will be eligible to provide testimony. The first session will be open for the general public to attend and observe.
The second hearing session will begin at 6 p.m. on October 28, at the same location. As requested previously by DEP, anyone from the general public will have the opportunity to provide input about the application at the second session.
Interested persons and operators wishing to present testimony at either session should contact Glenda Davidson at 717-787-4449 at least seven days prior to the first session. Those giving testimony at the second session will be requested to submit three written copies of their oral testimony to the assigned hearing officer.
The department will submit a public notice of the rescheduled hearings for publication in local papers at least two weeks prior to the hearing sessions. Although not required by law, DEP also will directly notify all royalty owners and operators within the area subject to the requested order. Information on the hearing will also be published in the Pennsylvania Bulletin.
For more information about Hilcorp’s application, visit www.dep.state.pa.us and click on “Oil and Gas,” “Office of Oil and Gas Management” and then “Conservation Law.”
Pennsylvanians looking for more information should call 717-772-2199.

Congressional Candidate Kerith Strano Taylor & 25 Women Candidates Meet To Commemorate Women’s Equality Day
Congressional Candidate Kerith Strano Taylor & 25 Women Candidates Meet To Commemorate Women’s Equality Day
HARRISBURG, PA: Today, on the steps of the State Capitol, over two dozen Democratic women candidates, including Pennsylvania Fifth Congressional District candidate Kerith Strano Taylor, met to commemorate the 94th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, which guaranteed women the right to vote.
2014 marks the largest amount of Democratic candidates running in Pennsylvania to ever run for office, over 40 in total. These candidates assembled to publicly declare their commitment to working together to solve the problems which face the state and the nation. Katie McGinty, Chair of Fresh Start PA spoke to the crowd and encouraged them to continue to run for office and make their voice heard. “So-called “Women’s Issues” are everyone’s issues. We will work together to improve the economy and create good jobs, assure quality public education for all of our children, protect the environment for the generations to follow, support small business and improve health care for all.”
Strano Taylor said, “Women have had the vote for 94 years, however they are still tremendously underrepresented in the halls of our legislatures and executive offices. We standing here are going to change that and follow the words of Mark Twain, who said over 100 years ago, during the struggle for the women’s vote that women should “rise in their might and change the awful state of things existing here.”
After Representative Allyson Schwartz leaves office in January 2015, as she did not run for another term, it is very possible that Pennsylvania will have no women representing it in Congress, out of 18 Congressional Districts.
The event was sponsored by the group ByWomenForWomen. The founder of ByWomenForWomen Lois Herr said, “We believe that government can be better and function more effectively, and we are collectively inspired to making that happen. We are committed to working across party lines to break down the barriers that keep the peoples’ voices from being heard and to bringing ethics and accountability to the forefront of government.”
In 1971, Congress designated August 26th, as Women’s Equality Day. It was established to not only mark the passage of the 19th Amendment in 1920, but also calls attention to women’s continuing efforts toward full equality.
Kerith Strano Taylor is the Democratic nominee in Pennsylvania’s Fifth Congressional District. A strong advocate for children and families, public education, and healthy communities, Kerith believes that Congress is broken and is failing to serve the needs of all Americans. She believes Congress can work again and she brings to the table the knowledge, skills, and abilities to make that happen.
Born in Clarion County and raised in Jefferson County, Kerith graduated from Penn State University and the George Mason School of Law. She practices law in Brookville, and serves as the Guardian ad Litem for Jefferson County, representing children in the foster care system. Through that work, since 2006 Kerith has had a seat on the Statewide Children's Roundtable Initiative. In 2011, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court appointed Kerith to the Juvenile Court Procedural Rules Committee, where she is helping to improve the rules governing actions for juvenile delinquency and dependency courts.
Kerith is the President of the Brookville School Board. In her work, Kerith Strano Taylor is widely recognized as an effective negotiator, a person who can help transform the most heated disagreements into sustainable solutions. She is a smart and savvy leader; a woman who brings out the best in others and encourages collaboration to solve critical problems. She will bring these much needed skills to Congress in 2014.
Kerith continues to live in Brookville, where she and her former husband work together in The Taylor Law Firm and share custody of their two children, Laurin and Ethan.
