  1. Both municipalities were going to do a RFP on their own. These are becoming common procedures for many municipalities across Pennsylvania. Here is one for Brentwood Borough https://www.brentwoodboro.com/bids-rfps/send/133-rfps/19458-rfp-2022-02-emergency-medical-services.html
  2. This is a preliminary proposal. It was placed on the Consolidation website so the residents could read it and then voice their opinions. I think there is a phone in option to attend meetings.
  3. This request for proposals for Emergency Medical Service is common for many municipalities in the state. If you would have any concerns then you should attend one of the upcoming Consolidation meetings. Joint Board meetings 1st and 3rd Monday (Except 7/4) at the City Building at 6pm. Sub committees meet on the Wednesday before the Joint meetings. https://duboispa.gov/consolidation/?fbclid=IwAR0baBH7CDqcH8F7eBqa0E3wych2cAIpJZ6ZpSFrTUwM0gt_YA21ACFOEoY https://duboispa.gov/wp-content/uploads/2022/06/Arbaugh-Draft-EMS-RFP.pdf Brentwood, Pa.

    OZ?

    If you feel Fetterman is a better choice then vote for him.

    OZ?

    The event was invite only. He answered questions about his dual citizenship and his home in New Jersey. I will be voting for him. Not sure why anyone would vote for Fetterman. Oz will be back in the area in the coming months.
  6. From their Facebook page: The restaurant is up for sale. We are and will remain open during this process. Thank you ahead of time for your continued support.
  7. I have had three Pfizer shots and received the Moderna vaccine in early April for my fourth. I have been in close contact with individuals who had Covid recently. The vaccine seems to offer protection to me. I will get a fifth shot when the new combo comes out. Most people are not reporting their cases anymore so case counts are inaccurate.
  8. Most consumers are better off skipping a electric car purchase for now. I looked at buying a electric Cadillac Lyriq. The break even point for any savings did not occur until year 22(2044)
  9. These planes still use jet fuel. They are hybrids. https://www.aviationtoday.com/2021/07/20/electric-cessna-grand-caravan-development-fly-2024/
  10. There are websites that EV owners list which charging stations are in good shape and some that do not work. A 20 minute listed charge might take 3 hours because there is something wrong with the charger. I Rented an Electric Car for a Four-Day Road Trip. I Spent More Time Charging It Than I Did Sleeping. Our writer drove from New Orleans to Chicago and back to test the feasibility of taking a road trip in an EV. She wouldn’t soon do it again. https://www.wsj.com/articles/i-rented-an-electric-car-for-a-four-day-road-trip-i-spent-more-time-charging-it-than-i-did-sleeping-11654268401?st=48u9mytewpnqvq0&fbclid=IwAR0JoeFrYCRHygwxYmJSaxsM0-kufQVPu1VhArCdEnYditabEfv9SUc09M8
  11. You would use the back up whole house battery to charge the EV. There are some cases where a EV makes perfect sense. If I was 25 years younger I would consider adding solar panels to my home. The EV payback would be a few years then since you are not paying for the electricity( you are using the solar panels for house electricity)
  12. Let the market place decide. Electric vehicles are fine for some people. There is even a dealer that will lend you a gas power vehicle to use on extended trips 3 times a year if you have range anxiety. If I wanted to replaced my vehicle with a electric one the payback date for savings was over 20 years out. https://www.edmunds.com/calculators/gas-guzzler.html
  13. The company that operates flights at the DuBois Airport will begin to change out their aircrafts to electric. Southern Airways and Surf Air Mobility Agree to Merge No immediate changes expected to current Southern operations, but electrification of the Southern fleet to be accelerated. https://www.aviationpros.com/airlines/press-release/21268397/southern-airways-southern-airways-and-surf-air-mobility-agree-to-merge
  14. Armed with Gore's utility bills for the last two years, the Tennessee Center for Policy Research charged Monday that the gas and electric bills for the former vice president's 20-room home and pool house devoured nearly 221,000 kilowatt-hours in 2006, more than 20 times the national average of 10,656 kilowatt-hours. "If this were any other person with $30,000-a-year in utility bills, I wouldn't care," says the Center's 27-year-old president, Drew Johnson. "But he tells other people how to live and he's not following his own rules."
  15. I like the plug in electric/ gas hybrid vehicles. You can drive for about 35 miles on all electric before the gas motor kicks in. Many owners fill the gas tanks only a few times a year( around town driving) but if you need to go on a long trip you have a range of almost 600 miles for some of them. Unfortunately the manufacturer charges a hefty premium over a regular hybrid making the payback too long. https://www.motorbiscuit.com/2022-toyota-rav4-prime-vs-rav4-hybrid-eco-friendly-hybrid-showdown/
  16. The Board of Directors of all organizations need to be vigilant to this type of activity. This happens when long time leaders are given little oversight.
  17. Many Chinese immigrants who speak little English are exploited by their employers. Government audits usually reveal numerous violations of federal and state wage-and-hour laws.
  18. Prevailing wage drive up construction cost for projects by roughly 20%.
  19. California Wildlife Crossing to Be Largest in the World The 10-lane highway overpass in Los Angeles designed to allow mountain lions and other animals to more freely roam, find mate. A 200-foot-long wildlife overpass under construction in Los Angeles aims to help mountain lions and other animals roam safely across the concrete jungle of Highway 101, raising their chances of long-term survival. Preservationists had raised concerns that the city’s winding freeway system forced area mountain lions to breed with nearby relatives, which could lead to lower survival rates. The new overpass, which will connect the Santa Monica Mountains to the Simi Hills over 10 lanes of highway in Agoura Hills, will allow the animals to mix with other, unrelated mountain lions. The Wallis Annenberg Wildlife Crossing, which broke ground recently, will be the largest in the world when it is completed, according to California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s office. It will be about 165 feet wide, complete with soil, vegetation and walls to help block both light and noise from the road, said Seth Riley, wildlife branch chief for the National Park Service’s Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. Dr. Riley said the goal is to make the overpass feel like it’s part of the natural area. “Actual conservation action is occurring, which is really exciting,” said Dr. Riley, whose team has been studying the effects of growth and urbanization over the past 25 years. https://www.wsj.com/articles/california-wildlife-crossing-to-be-largest-in-the-world-11651147265?mod=hp_listb_pos4
  20. Yes there was a weak attempt. It was easier to do nothing.
  21. Reynoldsville would be better off contracting police services with the new City of DuBois. Here is the preliminary plan outlined for DuBois/Sandy. https://duboispa.gov/wp-content/uploads/2022/04/Police-consolidationpp.pdf
  22. DuBOIS — Teams traveling to DuBois and Clearfield County for the 2018 City of DuBois USCAA Small College World Series are expected to begin arriving to the area this Saturday. A total of nine traveling small college baseball teams, along with Penn State DuBois, and 10 traveling softball teams will compete at Showers and Heindl fields for their respective national championships this coming week starting on Monday. Overnight bookings have come in higher than originally estimated, according to Matthew Checchio, president of Magnus Marketing. When initial planning was under way in the fall, the planning committee estimated approximately 750 room nights with local hotels. However, more parents, fans and school officials are expected to be traveling with the teams as the estimated room count was approaching close to 1,000 room nights at hotels and lodging locations within the county as of Wednesday. The event is expected to bring the largest number of room bookings by a single event in Clearfield County history.
  23. Do you have any facts about this "behind the scenes" income????
  24. Denny Heindl, a Ridgway resident, is giving $10,000 a year for forever to be used to maintain the field.
  25. Consumers can still get all the calories they need for about five dollars a day per person.
