Governor Wolf Requests Federal Aid to Assist Residents, Businesses for October Flooding in North Central PA

first_img Press Release,  Weather Safety Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today announced he has requested disaster declarations through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to the President for Bradford, Centre, Lycoming and Sullivan counties and through the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) for Lycoming and Centre counties. The requests were made in response to significant flooding in north-central Pennsylvania on October 21 that reached $33.2 million in damages, according to estimates.“After my trip there right after the flooding, I understood that the devastation in North Central Pennsylvania is more significant and wide-spread than we have seen recently in the commonwealth. These two programs are the best options available to provide financial assistance to both local governments and citizens who have been impacted by this flooding,” said Governor Wolf. “We’ve worked closely with local, county and state partners on multiple damage assessments, and we are confident that we meet the federal criteria for both declarations.”The major disaster declaration through FEMA will provide federal funding to local, county and state governments, as well as certain eligible non-profits in those counties through the Public Assistance program. The funds will reimburse costs associated with the response to and recovery from the flooding.  Eligible expenses include but are not limited to, costs associated with paying overtime, repairs to damaged infrastructure, equipment rentals, materials, search and rescue operations, and opening and operating shelters. That data was then relayed to the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency, which tracked and totaled the costs to present to the Governor.The overall estimated total costs associated with the major disaster declaration request are $33.2 million, which exceeds the commonwealth’s federally-established threshold of $18.1 million. It is important to note that total costs may fluctuate as applications for assistance are reviewed at both the state and federal levels. It is not known when the President will decide to grant or deny disaster assistance.If the Governor’s request is approved, applicants can be reimbursed up to 75% of the costs incurred on eligible expenses.The SBA declaration would provide low-interest loans to homeowners, renters and businesses with uninsured losses of 40 percent or more of their estimated fair market value. The SBA criteria of at least 25 potential applicants that sustained such losses was met in Lycoming and Centre counties.Governor Wolf signed a state proclamation of disaster emergency, which is required to request federal aid, on Nov. 16.Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf Governor Wolf Requests Federal Aid to Assist Residents, Businesses for October Flooding in North Central PA SHARE Email Facebook Twittercenter_img November 16, 2016last_img read more

David Johnson

first_imgFor some reason I started thinking about David Johnson the other day.  David was an athlete of mine when I taught at Whitewater High School in the mid 60’s.  David came to Whitewater from another school system when he was a freshman.  He didn’t know anybody so he joined the cross country team to feel that he was a part of his new school.  Before it was over, David became an excellent runner and this let him go to college on a partial athletic scholarship.  Besides the love for running, David also liked the outdoors.  His college education allowed him to be a park ranger.David moved to Alaska to pursue his love for the outdoors.  Before his untimely death of a heart attack, David started a marathon in his adopted state of Alaska.  If you have a son/daughter who moves to a new school system as David did, make sure they find some activity that allows them to become involved and make new friends.  David became one of the most popular students at Whitewater because he took a chance and came out for cross country.last_img read more

Biden says if he’s elected in 2020, he will not pardon Trump

first_imgDES MOINES — Former Vice President Joe Biden today said if he’s elected president, he will build on what he called “the squeaky clean…environment” of the Obama White House and have a policy for his family’s work that’s different than President Trump’s.“No one in my family will have an office in the White House, will sit in on meetings as if they’re a cabinet, will in fact have any a business relationship with anyone that relates to a foreign corporation or to a foreign country,” Biden said.Biden’s comments came during a Sunday afternoon news conference in Iowa. His son’s attorney issued a public statement early Sunday morning saying Hunter Biden will resign from a Chinese company and will not take any foreign work if his father is elected president.President Trump’s request that Ukraine’s president initiate an investigation of Joe and Hunter Biden’s activities in Ukraine is at the center of an impeachment inquiry. The former vice president, in speaking with reporters, said no news operation “of any consequence” that has examined the record has found he or his son did anything illegal.“What I’m not going to let you all do is take the focus off the problem,” Biden said as he started to rap the lectern with his knuckles to emphasize his points. “No one, no one has asserted my son did anything done. No one has asserted that I have done anything wrong except a lying president.”Five days ago, Biden for the first time called for Trump’s impeachment. Biden appeared Sunday afternoon at a forum sponsored by the United Food and Commercial Workers Union and Biden told the crowd of about 350 that it is a crime to ask a foreign power to interfere in a U.S. election.During an interview with Radio Iowa later Sunday afternoon, Biden said if he is elected, he will not follow President Ford’s example in pardoning Richard Nixon so Nixon was not prosecuted for his role in Watergate.“It wouldn’t unite the country,” Biden said. “You’d say: ‘Wait a minute. I get a parking ticket and I’ve got to pay it. This happens to me and I’ve got to go to jail. This guy does all these things that put us jeopardy and he gets off? I think this is of a different nature. And I think President Ford, God love him he’s a good guy, I knew him pretty well, I think if he had to do it over again he wouldn’t have done it…because he didn’t get re-elected.”According to Biden, Trump’s assertions about him and his son have had “no negative impact at all” on the Democratic presidential race.“Everybody knows he’s a liar — the president — I mean, for real,” Biden told Radio Iowa. “…I’m the reason he’s being impeached. He’s indicted himself by calling in foreign powers to try to impact the election.”A CBS News poll released Sunday found Biden and Elizabeth Warren were each the top choice of 22 percent of Iowa Democrats and Bernie Sanders was the top choice of 21 percent. Biden describes that as a “tie” among the three. The past four Democratic nominee for president all won the Iowa Caucuses, but Biden said he could win the party’s 2020 nomination without winning Iowa.“I’m going to win the Iowa Caucuses, but the answer is I could because this is a totally different circumstance now,” Biden told Radio Iowa. “You have, I don’t know how many candidates are going to be left, but you have somewhere between 10 and 20 and, you know, you’ve got to get a percentage of the vote in each caucus to count anything and I think we’ll do just fine and I think we’ll do extremely well in the following states as well.”Biden credited his lead among voters over the age of 50 to his history of campaigning in Iowa over the past three decades. Biden is expanding his Iowa campaign and by the end of this week will 70 paid staff here. Biden suggests there’s plenty of time to lay the groundwork for a Caucus Night victory.“You know, in Iowa it’s not over until the last person shows up,” Biden told Radio Iowa.last_img read more
