DCNR to Resume Spraying Woodlands to Combat Gypsy Moth Damage

DCNR to Resume Spraying Woodlands to Combat Gypsy Moth Damage
Harrisburg - The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources will target
eight counties in an aerial spraying effort to combat the effects of growing gypsy
moth populations in northwest and north central Pennsylvania.

The gypsy moth is one of the most destructive forest pests in Pennsylvania. When
the insect’s population peaks, it may strip trees of foliage, leaving them weakened
and susceptible to disease, drought and attack by other insects. A tree begins to
suffer when 30 percent or more of its leaf surface is lost.

“After a three-year absence of severe gypsy moth damage in our state woodlands,
the invasive forest pest has multiplied in some areas to the point where
suppression efforts must be resumed,” DCNR Secretary Richard Allan said.
“Woodlands selected to be sprayed this spring were determined by the number and
concentration of gypsy moth egg masses found, previous defoliation and ecological,
historic or economic significance.”

Gypsy moth numbers are at high enough levels that 43,124 acres of state
forestland, state parkland and Pennsylvania Game Commission land will be sprayed
in Cameron, Clarion, Forest, Jefferson, Lycoming, Potter and Tioga counties. Sixty
five acres of private property also will be sprayed in Venango County.

“Spraying is a suppression and forest management effort that will protect trees
from moderate to severe defoliation,” Allan said. “The gypsy moth will continue its
cyclic population with ups and downs, and we cannot eradicate the insect. It’s too
well-established, and is here to stay.”

DCNR last sprayed for gypsy moths in 2009, when more than 178,380 acres in 25
counties were targeted across the state. In 2008 a total of 221,221 acres of
private, state and federal woodlands were sprayed in 27 counties.

“Counties and cooperating agencies opt to enroll and share in the costs of
treatment in this voluntary program,” State Forester Daniel Devlin said. “Spraying
was not needed in prior years because the gypsy moth’s natural enemy, the fungus
Entomophaga maimaiga, caused populations to collapse across the state.
“Spraying helps contain the widespread gypsy moth damage we’ve seen in the
past, but the major controlling factor is, and will continue to be, the prevalence of
this fungus in our woodlands,” Devlin said.

Using helicopters, the spray program will begin in mid-April and end by June 1.
Tree foliage will be treated at the rate of one-half gallon per acre with the biological
insecticide, Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt), comprised of naturally occurring Bacillus
spores which must be ingested by the caterpillar. No chemical insecticides are used.
Begun in 1972, forest insect spray programs are a cooperative effort among DCNR's
Bureau of Forestry, county governments and the U.S. Department of Agriculture
Forest Service's Forest Health Protection Unit. County governments share the cost
of treating private residential and local government-owned lands for gypsy moth
suppression.

DCNR is soliciting public comment on the proposed gypsy moth suppression
program at a public meeting between 10 a.m. and noon Monday, March 11, in
Room 7A, Rachel Carson State Office Building, 400 Market St., Harrisburg.
Written comment may be mailed to Kevin Carlin, forest pest suppression
supervisor, Bureau of Forestry, Division of Forest Pest Management, Rachel Carson
State Office Building, 400 Market Street, 6th Floor, Harrisburg, Pa., 17105, or
emailed to kcarlin@pa.gov.

DEP Awards Energy-Efficiency, Pollution-Prevention Grants to 36 Small Businesses

DEP Awards Energy-Efficiency, Pollution-Prevention Grants to 36 Small Businesses

HARRISBURG -- The Department of Environmental Protection has awarded $290,010 in grants to help 36 small businesses across Pennsylvania invest in energy-efficiency or pollution-prevention projects.

“Since 2004, DEP has invested $7.5 million in 1,756 small businesses statewide,” DEP Secretary Mike Krancer said. “We are committed to investing in energy and pollution-saving measures in small businesses.”

Pennsylvania’s Small Business Advantage Grant program, funded through the Hazardous Sites Cleanup Act, helps businesses with 100 or fewer employees. It provides 50-percent matching reimbursement grants of up to $9,500 to implement projects that will save 25 percent annually in pollution-prevention or energy-related costs.

Of the $1 million in grants budgeted for the current fiscal year, this is the last of three announcements of selected grantees. The 36 new grants will create more than $1.1 million in private-sector investment in small businesses.

Examples of eligible projects include high-efficiency HVAC and insulation upgrades, high-efficiency lighting to save energy, installation of energy-efficient heat pumps and new auxiliary power units that help large trucks reduce time spent with idling engines.

For more information about the Small Business Advantage Grant program, contact DEP’s Office of the Small Business Ombudsman at 717-772-8909 or via email at epadvantagegrant@pa.gov.
No Northern Tier businesses received grants.

Change Clocks, Replace Batteries in Smoke Alarms, Carbon Monoxide Detectors This Weekend

Change Clocks, Replace Batteries in Smoke Alarms, Carbon Monoxide Detectors This Weekend

Harrisburg – Pennsylvania residents are reminded to change the batteries in older-model smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors when they turn their clocks forward this weekend.

“Smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors save lives, but they’re only effective when they’re working properly,” State Fire Commissioner Ed Mann said. “It only takes a few minutes, but it can save you from a lifetime of heartache should a fire destroy your property or claim the life of a loved one.”

Before installing a detector or an alarm, Mann suggested writing the purchase date inside the unit. Whether a unit is battery-powered or hardwired, it should be replaced every eight to 10 years. Some newer models have a sealed battery compartment with a lifespan of eight to 10 years, and after that time, a new unit must be purchased.

Working smoke alarms cut in half the risk of dying in a home fire. Worn or missing batteries are the most common cause of a smoke alarm or carbon monoxide detector malfunction. Changing the batteries at least once a year is one of the simplest, most effective ways to prevent tragic deaths and injuries.

Carbon monoxide is created when combustible materials burn incompletely. Often called “the silent killer,” it is an odorless, colorless, tasteless gas that can incapacitate victims before they’re aware they’ve been exposed. Sources of carbon monoxide can include wood-burning fireplaces and stoves, gas-fired appliances, grills, and motor vehicles.

Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning are often mistaken for the flu and include nausea, headaches, dizziness, disorientation and fatigue.

Mann said this weekend also serves as an ideal time for families to review and practice their home evacuation plans.

Information about how to prevent fires and prepare for emergencies is available online at www.ReadyPA.org.

The Woman Wildlifer: Campus Instructor Pens Article in State-Wide Publication

Keely Roen
The Woman Wildlifer: Campus Instructor Pens Article in State-Wide Publication

DuBOIS – As a senior instructor in Wildlife Technology at Penn State DuBois, Keely Roen works in a field where most of her colleagues are men. While the number of women has increased across many fields over the past few decades, women who work in fields devoted to the study of wildlife and forestry remain less common. Since this imbalance can often serve as a backdrop for unique challenges, conflicts or even interesting anecdotes, Roen recently decided to put down on paper some of the experiences different women have had working afield. Her article, The Woman Wildlifer appears in the current winter newsletter from the Pennsylvania Chapter of The Wildlife Society (TWS), which can be on their website at http://joomla.wildlife.org/pa

"The article kind of came about organically," Roen said. "I had been speaking to a few female friends and colleagues in wildlife and related fields and we seemed to share a lot of the same stories. I then mentioned this to one of the board members of the PA-TWS in passing at last year’s annual conference and she felt strongly it would be a good article."

Roen then began asking her female friends and colleagues in related fields to share their experiences with her, and the information came pouring in.

"I asked a few friends and I got some great quotes," Roen recalled. "I tried to keep it focused on the people sharing their stories. I could have written a novel with some of the information I received."

Roen began teaching at Penn State DuBois in 2001, and was promoted to the rank of senior instructor in 2011. She currently teaches Wildlife Management Techniques, Terrestrial Wildlife Management, Wildlife Statistics, and Environmental Science. She focuses research and lab activity on projects where she is able to get her students involved in meaningful, hands-on work. This fall will mark the thirteenth year that she and the other Wildlife Technology Program faculty will trap, band, and release northern saw-whet owls for study. She is also currently working with a student to study the distribution of golden eagles, using motion-activated trail cameras. She'll use those photos in her teaching afterward, and she will make a presentation along with her student at the Penn State DuBois Faculty and Student Research Symposium in April.

Resolution Calls for Study of Game, Fish Commission Merger


 
Pennsylvania is the only state in the nation where oversight of fishing, boating and wildlife activities is managed by two separate, independent agencies. Given the economic challenges being faced by the Pennsylvania Game Commission and the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission, I have introduced a resolution calling for a study of a possible merger of the two.

House Resolution 129 calls on the non-partisan Legislative Budget and Finance Committee (LBFC) to study the financial feasibility, impact, costs and savings that may be realized by combining the agencies. It also calls on the LBFC to explore a range of options with regard to how to structure the state’s wildlife agency to best manage the wildlife and aquatic resources of the Commonwealth.

If we can eliminate some duplication of services and pool our resources through a merger, the money saved could instead be invested in boosting our fish and wildlife populations, benefitting sportsmen and anglers across the Commonwealth. I hope to get a vote on the resolution in the near future.

Keep up with all of the latest news from the House Game and Fisheries by visiting my website and signing up for hunting and fishing news updates.  You may also follow me on Facebook.
Bill to End State Ownership of Liquor Stores Introduced

 
Pennsylvania is one of only two states that maintain complete control over the sale of wine and spirits. Legislation was introduced in the House this week to change that.

House Bill 790 seeks to privatize the sale of wine and spirits in Pennsylvania, allowing consumers to purchase alcoholic beverages at licensed grocery stores, convenience stores and other locations.

There is a great deal of public support for changing the state’s liquor sales system. However, it is a complex issue and it is very important to examine every detail of the plan to ensure it does not actually cost the state money in lost revenues in the future. I also want to make sure rural areas like ours will continue to have convenient access to these products. Finally, we need to make sure establishments selling alcoholic beverages remain vigilant in keeping these products out of the hands of people under the legal drinking age of 21.

The bill may come up for discussion in committee in the next week or two.
Don’t Forget to Spring Ahead!

Clearfield Bank & Trust Invests in Penn State DuBois Students

Clearfield Bank & Trust Invests in Penn State DuBois Students

Check presentation: Left to right: Bill Wood, chairman, president and CEO of Clearfield Bank & Trust; Melanie Hatch, chancellor, Penn State DuBois; Rick Ogden, senior vice president, chief financial officer and treasurer & Trust. of Clearfield Bank
DuBOIS – Clearfield Bank & Trust Company has recently made a commitment to support the educational pursuits of area students by establishing the Clearfield Bank & Trust Company Scholarship at Penn State DuBois. Clearfield Bank & Trust pledged $5,000 to the scholarship this year, and will make annual contributions to the fund, which will be distributed in its entirety to qualifying students each year.

This scholarship will provide recognition and financial assistance to outstanding undergraduate students enrolled or planning to enroll at Penn State DuBois who have superior academic records and a need for funds to help cover their college expenses. In an effort to support those in Clearfield Bank & Trust's immediate area, students from Bedford, Blair, Centre, Clearfield, or Huntingdon Counties will be given first preference.

"The DuBois Campus of the Pennsylvania State University has been part of the community for over 75 years and we are proud to be a supporter of the campus," said Bill Wood, chairman, president and CEO of Clearfield Bank & Trust Company. "As a locally owned community bank, we understand the importance of a secondary education. It provides graduates with opportunities that may not be available to those who have not obtained an advanced degree. We hope Clearfield Bank & Trust’s scholarship will help students achieve their aspirations in life."

Penn State DuBois chancellor Melanie Hatch agreed with Wood, saying that higher education is very often the key to individual success. Though she added that scholarships like the one established by Clearfield Bank & Trust put that education within reach for so many. She said, "The support that Clearfield Bank & Trust has extended to us will have a tremendous impact on the lives of students who receive this scholarship. By contributing, each year, to this fund they’re helping students, who may not be able to afford a college education without the commitment Clearfield Bank & Trust has made."

By establishing this scholarship, Clearfield Bank & Trust is also helping to support For the Future: The Campaign for Penn State Students. The campaign’s top priority is keeping a Penn State degree affordable for students and families. The For the Future campaign is the most ambitious effort of its kind in Penn State’s history, with the goal of securing $2 Billion by 2014. Penn State DuBois' individual aim is to raise $12 Million by 2014, and the campus is now at 80 percent of that goal.

Think About It.

You Don’t Have To Agree

The funny thing about life is that you don’t have to agree with everyone to get along, or at least it used to be that way. I say that because there was a time you could disagree with someone and be accepted. Today, depending upon what you disagree on, you could be labeled a bigot, intolerant, behind the times, and a host of other terms that I won’t go into here. It’s sad really because it all seems to come back to the point of being right, or at least right in one’s own eyes.

I have a friend that used to wear a tee shirt that stated, “You Can Go To Hell If You Want To”. It was quite a bold and in your face statement and I’m sure it probably offended some people. But the point is, you can go to hell if you want to because your choices make it so. I choose to believe or not believe and what I choose to believe is more often about what I want, rather than what is right or true. In other words, what I desire can have more of an influence upon my decisions than truth. Paul said it this way, “I want to do what’s right, but I don’t do it. Instead, I do what I hate”, (Romans 7:15). I’ve also heard it described as having two wolves inside us that are fighting with each other and the one that we feed will win over the one that we don’t.

We all have heard the expression, “Do what makes you feel good”, but is that good advice? Are we really feeding a destructive choice that although may make us feel good for the moment; will have eventual long lasting negative impact? That’s part of the problem, agreement with others is more often based upon our own likes and dislikes, what makes us feel good, rather than what’s right or true.

Jesus made the statement that he was the way and the truth, (John 14:6). You may not agree with that statement, and freewill gives you every right not to, but it doesn’t take away from the fact that this is what Jesus spoke. If I accept what he said is true, then I also have to conclude that my way isn’t going to work any more and that I need to follow his way. Perhaps I should just ask; how’s your way working for you? Think about it.
