Elimination of Philadelphia Traffic Court on House Agenda Next Week
Philadelphia Traffic Court
The House is scheduled to vote Monday on Senate Bills 333 and 334 (Sen. Dominic Pileggi, R-Delaware County) to effectively eliminate the Philadelphia Traffic Court and transfer its duties to Philadelphia Municipal Court. The bills were overwhelmingly approved by the House Judiciary Committee by 24-1 votes.
Senate Bill 333, a constitutional amendment, would eliminate references to Philadelphia Traffic Court throughout the Pennsylvania Constitution. To become law, a constitutional amendment must be approved in two consecutive sessions of the General Assembly and then by the electorate.
Identified by bill number, the sponsors and summaries for bills scheduled to be considered in committee or on the House floor are posted below. More information regarding these bills can be found at PAHouseGOP.com by clicking on the “Research Bills” tab.

Pennsylvanians Reminded to Follow Firewood Quarantine Orders
Federal, State Quarantines Restrict Movement of Hardwood Firewood
HARRISBURG, Pa., May 31, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Pennsylvanians can help safeguard the state's trees from devastating insects and diseases by not moving firewood more than 50 miles from its origin.
A federal quarantine prohibits firewood from Pennsylvania hardwood from entering some other states because of the Emerald Ash Borer. A state quarantine restricts the movement of wood products out of Bucks County because of Thousand Cankers Disease.
"Firewood may seem harmless, but it hides pests that are hazardous to trees and the industries that depend on them," Agriculture Secretary George Greig said.
"Do your part to slow the spread of harmful invasive insects and diseases by using only locally harvested firewood and burning all firewood near the area where it was cut down or purchased. Never transport unused firewood," Greig said.
Even using wood as a transport aid for bracing tires, grills, buckets and tarps on the back of a pickup truck or trailer can spread pests, Greig said. A piece of wood, 18 inches long by four inches wide, can house more than 10,000 Walnut Twig Beetles.
"The spread of pests like the Emerald Ash Borer has been accelerated because of the movement of hardwood firewood," Greig said. "The majority of infestations have been found along the state's interstates."
Emerald Ash Borer beetles can kill an ash tree within three years of the initial infestation. Native to Asia, adults are dark green, one-half inch in length and one-eighth inch wide, and fly only from early May until September.
Larvae spend the rest of the year beneath the bark of ash trees. When they emerge as adults, they leave D-shaped holes in the bark about one-eighth inch wide. The beetle has been found in 31 counties in Pennsylvania.
Thousand Cankers Disease attacks walnut trees when fungus-carrying Walnut Twig Beetles tunnel beneath the bark and form cankers that starve the tree of nutrients. An infected tree dies within 10 years. The disease was discovered in Bucks County in 2011.
There is no known practical control for these pests other than destroying infested trees.
People who think they may have found pests like the Emerald Ash Borer or Walnut Twig Beetle in a new area should call the department's toll-free automated pest hotline at 1-866-253-7189.
For more information about the quarantines, visit www.agriculture.state.pa.us or call 717-772-5205.

Work on Myrtle Bridge Replacement on Route 44 in McKean County Starts Monday
The bridge spans Bells Run just east of the village of Myrtle in Ceres Township. The bridge was built in 1928, is 66 feet long and carries an average of 3,000 vehicles each day.
Preliminary work is scheduled to begin Monday, June 3, and drivers will encounter daytime flagging operations. A temporary bridge will be placed on June 11 or June 12. Traffic will begin using the temporary bridge near the end of June.
After the temporary bridge is placed into service, work will shift to remove the old bridge and replace it with a wider structure. While the new bridge is being constructed, there will be minimal traffic disruptions.
The project could last until next spring, however the project may wrap up earlier if weather and schedule permit. A.L. Blades & Sons Inc. of Hornell, NY, is the contractor for this $1.5 million job.
Drivers are reminded to watch for flaggers, use caution through all work zones, obey posted speed limits and always buckle up.

Galeton Weather Report May 2013by Henry Lush
The weather for May was interesting. The month started out with a week of beautiful weather, then by mid month it turned colder. Mid May was more like February than May. On the 13th it snowed off and on all day with mid day temperatures in the mid 30's. We had a freeze on the 13th and 14th. The oak tree's suffered and the leaves still are not fully out. Then the weather turned very nice with two days the afternoon temperatures hitting 89 degrees. After that May like period, March returned with morning reading in the high 20's and low 30's with frost. To add to the cold, it turned windy, however the last few days of May again it turned warm with 90 degree readings on the 30th and 31st.
We received 4.05" of rain and a trace of snow on two days. Last year we had 4.19" of rainfall and no snow. We had four days with thunder and hail was recorded on two days and fog on 13 mornings. Power was out for 16 hours on two days. None of the outages, according to Penelec were weather related, however, it was inconvenient for many.

SHOOTING-RANGE PERMIT A FAKE, PENALTY TOPS $1,000
Game Commission issues reminder that a new permit and license year begins soon.
A Pittsburgh man has been fined $1,100 after he presented a wildlife conservation officer with a phony shooting-range permit he could have bought legitimately for $30.
The Pennsylvania Game Commission views the case as a timely reminder for those who take target practice at ranges on state game lands, where most participants who do not possess valid hunting or furtaker licenses must hold permits to use the range.
Both hunting licenses and shooting-range permits for 2013-14 go on sale soon.
Hunting licenses go on sale June 10, three weeks before the start of the new license year. Those needing shooting-range permits for 2013-14 must wait until July 1 to buy them. The permits that are on sale now are valid until June 30. The next permit period runs from July 1 to June 30, 2014.
Those who will need licenses and permits in the coming months might be able to save themselves some trouble by buying them soon after they go on sale.
The Game Commission in 2011 began requiring permits for range shooters without hunting licenses as a way to make sure all who use the agency’s firearms ranges contribute to the cost of their upkeep. Licensed hunters and furtakers are required to carry their licenses with them while using the ranges.
The range at which the counterfeit permit was presented is part of State Game Lands 203 in Allegheny County.
Wildlife Conservation Officer Dan Puhala said the range sees heavy use and he often patrols there. While at the range on March 13, Puhala observed a target shooter fire a series of about 10 shots, which he said was in violation of range rules that dictate a three-shot limit. Puhala asked to see the man’s shooting-range permit, and while the man presented a permit to the officer, it turned out to be counterfeit.
While shooting-range permits can be purchased online and printed at home, they have distinguishing markings that identify them as authentic, Puhala said.
The man was charged for the range violation and for possessing the counterfeit permit, and he pleaded guilty on Thursday to both counts. All told, the man was fined $1,100 and he faces a possible five-year revocation of his shooting-range permit and hunting-license privileges.
Shooting-range permits cost $30 per year for residents and nonresidents. Those 15 years of age and younger do not need a permit if they are properly accompanied by a licensed or permitted person 18 years of age or older. Additionally, each licensed hunter or range permit holder can bring along one unpermitted or unlicensed guest.
Like hunting licenses, shooting-range permits are valid from July 1 to June 30 each year. The permits can be purchased online at “The Outdoor Shop” on the Game Commission’s website (www.pgc.state.pa.us). Following the purchase, which requires payment by credit or debit cards, a downloadable permit is provided and can be printed on a home computer. The agency sells the permits through its Harrisburg headquarters and six region offices. However, since the purchase will be processed through “The Outdoor Shop,” only credit and debit cards are used for payment.
Hunting licenses also can be purchased online through the Game Commission’s website, and are available through a host of issuing agents. Countywide lists of issuing agents also are available at the commission’s website.

Please shower her with cards.
She is now living at the Guy and Mary Felt Manor on Fourth Street, in Emporium, PA 15834. I went to visit her last Sunday and she looked healthy, but her memory is slipping and she doesn't recognize some people. She said, "I'm so glad my kids put me in here because they take such good care of me."
Her memory is a guest book on her bedside table. She can still read and your cards would be a highlight of her day. So, get a card and mail it today!!!!"

Local Success Story In Abandoned Well MissionA local success story in the state’s endless mission to locate and cap abandoned gas and oil wells was shared at the recent Triple Divide Watershed Coalition meeting. Two “orphaned” wells were found in the Shinglehouse Municipal Water System recharge area, threatening the public water supply. Officials contacted the Pa. Dept. of Environmental Protection (DEP), which operates a program to retire abandoned wells in instances where responsibility cannot be established. DEP assessed the site, researched ownership records and assigned a high priority to the Shinglehouse wells.
“The orphaned well program has delivered,” coalition chairman John McLaughlin said. “Operators should walk their recharge areas, and if they find an abandoned or orphaned well they can get it addressed.” Work on the Shinglehouse wells is expected to begin as soon as August.
DEP acknowledges that there are tens of thousands of abandoned wells in Pennsylvania. Only about 2,900 have been plugged. DEP is collecting maps and other relevant documents to create a more comprehensive database as the agency addresses the wells on a case by case basis, with limited funds and personnel.

I heard a story the other day about a man who died and went to heaven. At the gate sat Peter who told the man that he needed 1000 points to get into Heaven. Since the man had done many good things in his life he wasn't too concerned with the point system. After all, he thought, he was better than most. So he started, "I've been married for 48 years and I never cheated on my wife or even had a thought for another woman." "Very good" said Peter, "That will be two points". The man went on to reported that he gave over ten percent of his income to charity. Again Peter said that was good and awarded him another two points. Getting a little flustered, the man shared that he had volunteered for several national disasters in both time and money. Peter again praised him for the great work he had done and awarded him four points. At that point the man threw up his hands in utter frustration and declared, "At this rate, I'm going to need the grace of God". Peter excitedly responded, "That's it, now you have your 1000 points, enter in by His grace."
Sadly, many attempt to please God by doing good things. But if that were the case, if you could earn your way, Jesus Christ died for nothing. But that's not what the Bible teaches. It stated that there are none righteous and that all have sinned and fallen short of His glory, (Romans 3:23). Try as we might, we will never be good enough. Salvation is always about the grace of God, not the works of man.
But is life just about heaven? I think not. Life is about now, today. Those who have placed their faith in God are to live out their lives today in the power of that faith. That means facing all that life has to throw at them in a manner that will point others to that faith. I'm not to live my life in a vacuum sequestered away on some mountaintop. Instead, I'm to be a disciple, living my life through His power. Sadly, many try to earn God’s acceptance through what they do. You’re already accepted through what He’s done, you just have to choose to accept it. It always boils down to one simple thing, it’s called choice. Think about it.
