Welcoming New Business

 
Last week, I toured Ameri-Source Specialty Products in Bethel Park. The company, which is a specialty steel distributor, will be opening a new manufacturing facility in Canonsburg soon. I am very excited to welcome this business to Washington County.
 

Local Residents Win Big at PA Farm Show
 
There’s still time to stop by if you haven’t yet visited the largest indoor exposition of its kind along the East Coast.

The 103rd Farm Show will wrap up Saturday, after hundreds of thousands of visitors have walked through the doors at the Farm Show Complex near Harrisburg.

In addition to all the delicious food offerings, the Farm Show features 6,000 animals, 10,000 competitive exhibits and 300 commercial exhibitors.

Admission to the show is free, but parking is $15 per vehicle. Shuttle service is provided.

Locally, the 48th District is boasting a lot of winners at this year’s Farm Show. Be sure to check out the list on the Farm Show website. The site also includes hundreds of photos from the week, categorized by competition.
 

January is Cervical Health Awareness Month
In recognition of January as Cervical Health Awareness Month, residents are reminded of the Commonwealth’s HealthyWoman Program, a free breast and cervical cancer early detection program for those who are not insured or whose insurance doesn’t cover the screenings.

Nearly 13,000 women in the United States are diagnosed with cervical cancer each year, but the disease is virtually always preventable with vaccination and appropriate screening.

The most common form of cervical cancer starts with pre-cancerous changes that can be found and treated before they turn into cancer. The changes do not have symptoms but can be detected through regular screening.

Among the services offered are pelvic exams, Pap smears and follow-up diagnostic tests for an abnormal screening result. Cervical cancer screenings are recommended for women beginning at age 21.

For more information, call the HealthyWoman hotline at 1-800-215-7494 or click here
 

Veterans Should Review Benefits
As the New Year starts, the Pennsylvania Department of Military and Veterans Affairs (DMVA) suggests veterans review the benefits they have earned through their service.

Veterans should check with a veterans service officer to see if a change in their circumstances or in benefit policies could make them eligible for different programs.

Veterans are encouraged to apply for federal health care and state benefits by visiting their local county director of veterans affairs or area accredited service organizations. County directors can be found by clicking here.

The first Tuesday of the month in my Washington District Office I host monthly veterans outreach hours with a department service officer from the American Legion. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call my office at 724-223-4541.

DMVA officials stress that veterans and their dependents should never pay for help to apply for benefits. There are about 200 veterans service officers in Pennsylvania who work with organizations such as the DMVA, county veterans affairs offices, and several veterans service organizations available to provide assistance at no cost.

To get timely information about state benefits, programs and services, veterans are urged to sign up for DMVA’s Veterans Registry at register.dmva.pa.gov.
 

Slow Down to Get Around Law Now in Effect
An expansion of the state law designed to protect roadside workers is now in effect in Pennsylvania.

Act 83 of 2018 adds trash haulers to the list of vehicles, including stationary tow trucks, mail delivery vans and other vehicles involved in performing a roadside service, to those for which a driver must slow down when passing.

Drivers are required to move at least one lane away when possible or slow down and be ready to stop if they cannot.

This law is in addition to the “Steer Clear” law requiring drivers to move over when approaching an emergency response scene.
