  2. DuBOIS – There is still time to sign up for remaining seats in both a 10-week introductory sign language course, as well a 6-week intermediate class for those who would like to increase their sign language skills. This Fall Penn State DuBois Continuing and Community Education will offer both, with Marla Jo Ball as the instructor. These courses are Act 48 approved for continuing education credits for educators who work with hearing impaired students or those with autism who use sign language as their primary form of communication. Students applying for Act 48 credits must attend all the class hours and complete any independent projects in order to receive credits. The introductory class will meet from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. on Tuesdays, beginning October 1, in Room 209 of the DEF Building at Penn State DuBois. This class teaches finger spelling, conversational phrases and a variety of commonly used signs. The class will also include introducing students to the deaf culture and a variety of web sites for independent learning. Students will be introduced to the concept of “What does it look like?” as an approach to learning this language in comparison to learning a spoken language and how words sound. Class structure will include small group centers for practicing and improving skills. The goal of the class is to allow students to learn, recognize and reproduce more than 100 signs, while also gaining the ability to spell and read fingerspelling phonetically. At the end of the class, students will be expected to converse with others at a basic level. Registration is $160, with discounts for current Penn State students and employees. Contact Penn State DuBois Continuing and Community Education for details and discount codes. The more advanced class will meet Thursdays from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. beginning October 10, in Room 209 of the DEF Building at Penn State DuBois. It is open to those with basic knowledge of American Sign Language. As part of the class, students will be required to conduct an independent study project based on a specific topic related to American Sign Language. This project will require time outside of class, in addition to the nine hours of class. The goal of this class is to expand on their current knowledge of sign language and ultimately allow them to learn, recognize and reproduce more than 200 signs. Registration for this class is $100 and similar discounts to the introductory class exist for this class as well. Students wishing to register for either class can go to the Penn State DuBois web site at: https://dubois.psu.edu/listen-your-eyes-introduction-american-sign-language
  3. Don't Missunderstand Me - Lynyrd Skynyrd with Dale Kranz- Rossington and Travis Tritt
  4. Today
  5. I did say a "properly timed traffic light". Unlike the left turn light at Shaffer & B-Line. Traffic lights are programmable for volume of traffic and time of day. I deal with countless PennDOT projects each year. There are places a roundabout would work, Beaver Dr isn't one of them. Nor any other place in DuBois/Sandy Twp. The fools that proposed the idea failed to factor in the turning radius of tractor trailers due to their length. There is only enough room for a single lane roundabout there, maybe 2 lane if they buy land from the cornering property owners. But with the small radius a tractor trailer will use both lanes. And with the layout of the new sidewalks, I'm thinking the roundabout is off the table. Otherwise they would have pushed the new crossing at Division northwards to accommodate a future roundabout. The ONLY reason it is being considered is because PennDOT would pay for it. ...and I know that first hand.
  6. Turkey meatloaf patties, with cauliflower mash and asparagus.
  7. Oh, go pee up.a rope. WE ARE!!!
  8. well......they were frozen and defrost/thaw is not a known word to her.....so...after a min trying to defrost them she browned what she could, then tried cutting them up to put on a cookie sheet to bake.....it was a scary sight but.....it did taste ok, but you couldnt really call it chops any more
  9. It's a shame... I have quite a few friends that work there for Exelon. While some are going to other plants many others are going to be unemployed. I my self have worked there numerous times over the last 26 years during their refueling outages as have thousands of other tradesmen and tradeswomen. The impact of TMI shutting down is going to reach far and wide.
  10. Yesterday

  14. Wolf in sheep's clothing is what you are, mr.d
  15. stuffed shells, garlic bread and then my hubby is making milkshakes..yummmm.
  16. First off, I counted 14 slides but only 12 bad habits. False advertising. 1. Tailgating: You saw me coming, you chose to pull out, you're doing 32mph and now you're making a left turn!!! It's your fault 2. Driving too slow. If you hadn't done #1, I wouldn't have passed you just so I could do this. 3. Driving too fast. I'm late, get the out of my way! 4. Not dimming high beams: It takes too much effort to toggle that lever to keep from causing irreparable damage to my eyesight? Fine, how 'bout I follow you home and wee wee in your ear? Sound fair? 5. Blocking the left lane: This should be punishable by death 6. Changing lanes too often: You happy now, **le? You've been jumping back and forth for the last 5 miles across 3 lanes of traffic every time there was a gap 2 inches wider than your car in any lane and now you're behind me again. I hope your uterus falls out. 7. Using horn too much: I hate this one, and LFGal is a habitual offender. The horn is only to be used to avoid an accident. I scream vulgarities at the car in front of me, shake my head, gnash my teeth, but all in the silence of my own vehicle. LFGal thinks the horn is an extension of her vocal cords. Or middle finger. 8. Having road rage: Who, me? 9. Not pulling over for emergency vehicles: Emergency vehicles should be equipped with a wedge. If some pompous doesn't pull over don't even slow down mr.d, he deserved it 10. Playing loud music: If it weren't for Avenged Sevenfold blasting in my ears to calm my nerves I would equip my own truck with a wedge and not slow down. Consider my loud music a public service 11. Being a distracted driver: Again, say what you want about phones, food, etc... There have been driver's side vanity mirrors in visors for years and I never heard a peep. I'm starting a petition 12. Parking in handicap spaces: If you do this, you are a do**he and you know it, but I'll tell you another one that sets me into a blind rage. Do the Sheetzezeezzzezessezz have the hashed out spaces right in front of the doors where no one is supposed to park? Our convenience stores do. Parking spaces clearly defined on either side, with the front painted a solid color to keep that area clear. There's always one **le who is so important that they have to park their 2002 Impala with 24 inch rims there, get out with the car running and Lil' Wayne blasting at full volume, while they run in to get some Funyuns and an Orange Crush. If you are picturing a particular driver, that's on you, not me...
  17. Three Mile Island nuclear power plant's shutdown is imminent by MARC LEVY, The Associated Press Thursday, September 19th 2019 AA Exelon Corp. officials said the plant will stop producing electricity around noon Friday, following through on a decision the Chicago-based energy giant made in May after it became clear that it would not get a financial rescue from Pennsylvania. (AP photo) HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — The shutdown of Three Mile Island, site of the United States' worst commercial nuclear power accident, is imminent. Exelon Corp. officials said the plant will stop producing electricity around noon Friday, following through on a decision the Chicago-based energy giant made in May after it became clear that it would not get a financial rescue from Pennsylvania. Three Mile Island's Unit 1 opened in 1974 and is licensed to operate through 2034. But Exelon has complained that the plant is losing money in competitive electricity markets. Three Mile Island also faces particularly difficult economics because the 1979 accident left it with just one reactor. Decommissioning it could take decades. No nuclear plant that was proposed after the accident has been successfully completed and put into operation in the United States. https://wjactv.com/news/local/three-mile-island-nuclear-power-plants-shutdown-is-imminent
  18. Details of Incident That Sparked Lengthy Police Situation Released September 19, 2019 12:30 am· Author: Aly Delp CLARION TWP., Pa. (EYT) – Details have been released on an incident that sparked a lengthy police situation in Clarion County, resulting in multiple school cancellations and the closure of U.S. Route 322. (Photos by Dave Cyphert of ProPoint Media Photography) Court documents indicate the Clarion-based State Police filed criminal charged against 29-year-old James Ledos Cunningham, of Reynoldsburg, Ohio. According to a criminal complaint, on Tuesday, September 17, Clarion-based State Police received a call from a known individual who stated she received multiple concerning text messages from her sister. In the messages, her sister said she was with her boyfriend, James Cunningham, and he was going to kill himself. The individual was concerned for her sister’s safety and indicated her sister needed immediate police assistance. According to the complaint, it was reported that Cunningham and a known female were in a white Subaru Legacy on Old U.S. 322 in Clarion Township, near Piney Dam, which leads to a boat launch and parking lot for access to the Clarion River. The individual reported the woman pinned the location on her phone and forwarded it. It was also reported that Cunningham was refusing to admit himself into the Clarion Psychiatric Center. While speaking with the individual, Trooper Reilly received a call from Trooper Owen of the Franklin-based State Police. Trooper Owen related that Cunningham’s mother was currently reporting that her revolver was stolen by Cunningham. The handgun was described as a silver and pink .38 revolver. The complaint notes that further investigation revealed that Cunningham was entered into the NCIC as a wanted person for failure to appear on misdemeanor charges filed in Venango County. Trooper Reilly was then contacted by the known individual again, and the individual related the known female sent a text message confirming that Cunningham had a gun. Troopers were then dispatched to the scene along Old U.S. 322. Troopers on-scene requested that Trooper Reilly contact the known female and have her leave Cunningham if she could, or attempt to have Cunningham speak to them. The female indicated that Cunningham refused to talk to anyone but her, and when asked if she could drive away, she stated that if she left, Cunningham would kill himself. According to the complaint, while speaking to the known female in the vehicle, Cunningham became agitated and walked away from the vehicle. The woman related that Cunningham was currently by the river and “had the gun out.” Trooper Reilly then told the woman if she was able to walk away, she needed to walk to the troopers at the scene. The woman then started walking and said that Cunningham began following her with the gun. The woman was able to make contact with troopers at the scene. While walking to the troopers, the woman related that Cunningham was supposed to go to the Clarion Psychiatric Center around 3:00 p.m. and that they “had an open bed for him and were expecting him.” She also verified that Cunningham was in possession of a handgun. According to the complaint, at that point, Cunningham did not make contact with the troopers and his location was unknown. Around 9:07 p.m., notifications were made requesting SERT Special Emergency Response Team and a Pennsylvania State Police Aviation Unit to respond to the scene to help in locating Cunningham. Trooper Bauer was contacted at 9:11 p.m. and requested an emergency mental health examination for the suspect. Contact was made with Clarion County Crisis at 9:50 p.m., a mobile crisis worker reported to the Clarion-based State Police barracks at 10:40 p.m., and an involuntary 302 warrant was approved. Troopers were able to secure the white Subaru on Old U.S. 322 on Wednesday, September 18, and a black 9mm handgun, registered to the known woman, was located inside the vehicle. The woman said that Cunningham remained in possession of the snub-nosed .38 revolver he had stolen from his mother. The situation came to an end when Cunningham was finally taken into custody around 8:00 a.m. on Wednesday, September 18. The incident resulted in the closure of U.S. Route 322 between Shippenville in Clarion for nearly 12 hours. Cunningham was arraigned in front of Magisterial District Judge Duane L. Quinn at 3:15 p.m. on September 18, on the following charges: – Possession Of Firearm Prohibited – Receiving Stolen Property, Felony 2 – Flight To Avoid Apprehension/Trial/Punishment, Felony 3 – Firearms Not To Be Carried Without License, Felony 3 Unable to post $150,000.00 monetary bail, he was lodged in the Clarion County Jail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, October 1, with Judge Quinn presiding.
  19. If this helped to make your day, My work is done here.
  20. Nope, not how it works mr.d triggered my OCD and now I have to respond to every number
  21. LFG

    And awaaayyy we go

    Here in SC that's one week that Muschamp is guaranteed not to lose Clemson has 10 bye weeks. It's called an ACC schedule
  22. You would think so, but I think the compulsion to do the act is stronger. And after awhile it gets out of control. Heck, the guy had images on his phone! Some people just figure they will never get caught. It's scary to think of how many pedophiles are out there that we don't know about yet.
  23. Its important to remember history and to take a look back every once in awhile. Thats how we remember where we came from, and also helps us to learn from the past and hopefully not repeat our mistakes.
  24. All the points listed are just plain old common sense. Most of us know that. I get really irate when folks don't follow it. I'll admit I'm not perfect, and sometimes I goof up, but 99.9% of the time, I do what I'm supposed to.
  25. Time Left: 1 month and 30 days
