PennDOT, Police Focused on Reducing Impaired Driving Crashes through Labor Day

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.

Controversial Fracking Documentary Screens in Oregon

Controversial Fracking Documentary Screens in Oregon


Investigative News Team Covers Water Contamination in ‘Triple Divide’

Oregonians will have a chance to see Triple Divide, a documentary by Public Herald nonprofit journalists Joshua Pribanic and Melissa Troutman, as the two appear for three screenings in the western part of the state.

water_contamination_TripleDivide.jpg

[Judy tells Public Herald about her water woes since Marcellus drilling and fracking on her neighbor's property, 450 feet from her water well, in Triple Divide. © Public Herald]

Triple Divide has been called “a bombshell” and “the best documentary on fracking.” According to the filmmakers their original reports characterize how the state ‘world-class regulations’ fail to protect people, communities, and the environment.

“The public and state government officials are not seeing the full impacts from fracking because regulators are mismanaging data, and decisions are made based on politics instead of science,” says Pribanic. “The impacts we encountered in Triple Divide are systemic, they’re not isolated to a single state. If fracking was sold to the people of Pennsylvania as energy independence for America, will Oregon allow an export facility to be built on its shores?”

Pribanic and Troutman are touring their documentary across the U.S. after winning a grant from the California-based nonprofit Investigative News Network, with support from the James L. Knight Foundation and Tesla Motors. They’ll drive over 10,000 miles in a Tesla Model S, a long-range, all-electric sedan, and use Tesla’s nationwide Supercharger network where the car can be quickly recharged for free. Their goal is to cross the U.S. using zero gasoline and emitting zero greenhouse gas pollution.

The journalists aim to bring together people on any side of the issue to discuss solutions. “Pennsylvania has some of the best environmental laws in the country, but clearly it’s not enough," says Troutman.  "The industry is looking at states like Oregon for export facilities, but the people of Oregon need to know the external cost of fracking before decisions are made." 

Academy Award-nominated actor Mark Ruffalo co-narrates the documentary and added his voice to the project after seeing the film just weeks before its release in March 2013.  Ruffalo’s nonprofit Water Defense investigates water testing and protection measures. He’s also co-founder of the Solutions Project.

Triple Divide’s namesake, the triple continental divide in Pennsylvania, is one of four highly unique watersheds in North America where three major rivers begin and flow to separate parts of the continent, providing drinking water for millions of people downstream.

“This film is the shocking truth about how water and energy connect us all,” said Troutman.

The filmmakers will attend all Oregon screenings for discussion, premiering September 11th, 7:00PM in Salem, OR at the Grand Theater; Sept. 12th at 7:00PM in Portland at First Unitarian Church, Eliot Chapel, SW 12th and Salmon St.; and Sept. 13th in Astoria at the Columbian Theater.

Discounted Fishing License Available for Labor Day

Discounted Fishing License Available for Labor Day
 
HARRISBURG, Pa. (Aug. 27) – New or lapsed anglers who want to fish on Labor Day but don’t want to pay the full price for a license now have the opportunity to purchase a one-day discounted license for $1, under a special offer from the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC).
 
For the first time, the PFBC is lowering the price of 1-day resident and non-resident fishing licenses to just $1 on Labor Day, Sept. 1. With issuing agent and transaction fees, the total price for the 1-day adult license is $2.70.
 
This represents a 77 percent reduction on a 1-day adult resident license ($11.70) and a 90 percent reduction on the 1-day adult tourist license ($26.70).
 
PFBC Executive Director John Arway says the reduced license is an enticement to remind anglers that fishing is a year-round sport and doesn’t end after trout or bass season or when kids return to the classroom.
 
“We have a rich history of trout and bass fishing in the Commonwealth and the opening days are truly traditional events enjoyed by families,” he said. “But we also have many other outstanding fishing opportunities throughout the year.”
 
“Legislators have given us the ability to be creative with our pricing and marketing strategies, so we’re using the reduced cost license to attract people to this particular day,” he said. “We know a lot of people will be out on Labor Day enjoying the state’s natural resources. We think they’ll see this as a convenient and inexpensive opportunity to try fishing for the first time or to rekindle their interest in the sport.”
 
Anglers can use the discounted 1-day license to fish anywhere in the Commonwealth on Labor Day.
 
The Labor Day 1-day adult licenses are available through the PFBC’s Outdoor Shop and licensing agents. Visit the PFBC website for a complete list of agents.

Oswayo Valley School District Announces Open House


Drawdown To Begin At Colyer Lake

Drawdown to Begin at Colyer Lake
 
HARRISBURG, Pa. (Aug. 27) – The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) today said that it will begin the final drawdown of Colyer Lake in Centre County on Tuesday, Sept. 2., in advance of a construction project to rebuild the lake’s dam and spillway.
 
The drawdown is expected to take several weeks to complete. The lake can be drained at a rate of about one foot per day, depending on weather. The lake currently has only 16-17 feet of water remaining at its deepest point.
 
As the lake reaches the final stages of draining, the PFBC will conduct a fish salvage to remove and relocate as many fish as possible. Although fish salvages generally save a large number of fish, a significant amount will also perish.
 
“We will collect as many fish as we can, but it is impossible to capture all of them,” said Dave Miko, PFBC Chief of Fisheries Management. “Fish die during any drawdown and salvage effort. Many hide around structures where we simply can’t reach them, and others become buried in the mud when they are slow to exit the lake with the remaining water. Anglers and the general public should expect to see this.”
 
The lake will remain open for public use through Monday, Sept. 1. At that point, the PFBC will close the facility.
 
Construction to repair the lake’s dam and spillway is scheduled to begin in October and is expected to be completed by late 2015.
 
The lake is expected to be refilled and fully useable again by spring 2016.
 
In early 2013, the PFBC announced that the lake’s dam was unsafe and the lake would have to be drained. This was done after routine inspections by PFBC engineers and the state Department of Environmental Protection found that existing undermining beneath the dam’s spillway had become more severe. A design project was already underway to rebuild the facility.
 
In November 2013, Gov. Tom Corbett signed into law a transportation bill which provided funds which can be leveraged with other sources to help the PFBC rebuild high-hazard dams like Colyer Lake. The $7.2 million construction project is being funded with $5.85 million from the state’s capital budget, $1.25 million from the PFBC as a result of the transportation law, and $100,000 from the Save Colyer Lake organization.
 
Colyer Lake is a 77-acre reservoir located in Potter Township in Centre County. It is owned by the Commonwealth and managed by the PFBC.

Death Of Allegany Teenager At NY College Ruled Accidental Drowning

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.

Thompson: President’s Renewed Focus on Improving Mental Wellness of Military, Veterans is a “Step in the Right Direction”

Thompson: President’s Renewed Focus on Improving Mental
Wellness of Military, Veterans is a “Step in the Right Direction” 

 Senate action on House-passed measures would enable President to fully
implement proposed actions to protect nation’s war heroes  

Bellefonte, Pa. – U.S. Representative Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-5) is calling on the Senate to take action on a series of House-passed bills that would improve the mental health of veterans and active military and address the unemployment disparity facing the nation’s veteran population. 

Thompson’s remarks came in response to a series of proposed executive actions announced earlier today by President Obama that are designed to support the health and wellbeing of veterans and servicemembers.  

“The President’s new initiatives that would further protect the mental health and wellbeing of our veterans and servicemembers is a step in the right direction. Unfortunately, if we are to fulfill the promises we have made to our nation’s war heroes, we need more than a commitment from the administration. The House has passed a series of bills with overwhelming support that would give the Department of Defense the appropriate authorities to fully implement these proposals,” Rep. Thompson said. “It’s time for the Senate to act on these commonsense, bipartisan reforms.”

On May 22, 2014 the House passed Thompson’s Medical Evaluation Parity for Service Members (MEPS) Act (H.R. 4305), as part of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2015. The Senate has failed to act on this bipartisan legislation, which passed the House by a vote of 325-98.

According to a recent Army study nearly one in five Army soldiers enter the service with a psychiatric disorder, and nearly half of all soldiers who tried suicide first attempted it before enlisting. The MEPS Act would institute a preliminary mental health assessment at the time recruits are first joining the military.

On June 20, 2014, the House passed the Defense Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 2015 (H.R. 4870), which includes Thompson provisions that will prioritize investments for the expansion of telemedicine across the military. The Senate has failed to act on this bipartisan legislation, which passed the House by a vote of 340-73.

On April 30, 2014, the House passed the Veterans Affairs and Military Construction Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 2015 (H.R. 4486), which includes $165 billion in funding, a $7 billion increase over 2014. The Senate has failed to act on this bipartisan legislation, which passed the House by a vote of 416-1.
On March 11, 2014, the House passed the Hire More Heroes Act (H.R. 3474), a bill that makes it easier to hire veterans by exempting those who already have health insurance from being counted as full-time employees under the President’s health care law. The Senate has failed to act on this bipartisan legislation, which passed the House by a vote of 406-1.

Forced Pooling Hearing Again Rescheduled For Hilcorp Application

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.
