Be Smart About Financial Aid
 
The Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA) is encouraging college-bound students and their families to visit MySmartBorrowing.org to help make informed choices about student loans.

This free, easy-to-use tool helps users understand how different career, school and financial decisions can influence the cost of an education and their ability to repay student loans, while maintaining a comfortable lifestyle long after graduation.

The site was recently updated with enhanced college and career projection data through 2026. This includes expected college costs for various majors at different schools and future employment opportunities and salary levels for different careers and geographic locations.

This data helps provide a personalized look at a student’s potential cost of attendance at different schools, while highlighting salary expectations for a particular degree and future employment prospects. Students are encouraged to use the site more than once so they can compare different scenarios, using different schools and careers, to see how the choices they make can affect their futures.

For more information about financial aid opportunities, visit PHEAA.org.

Invasive Asian ‘Longhorn’ Tick Confirmed in Pennsylvania
 
A new variety of tick was confirmed on a wild deer in Centre County recently, and the Department of Agriculture is encouraging people to take precautions to protect themselves, as well as livestock and pets.

The Asian, or longhorn tick, Haemaphysalis longicornis, is an invasive species that congregates in large numbers and can cause anemia in livestock. It is known to carry several diseases that infect hogs and cattle in Asia. So far, ticks examined in the United States (they have already been found in Arkansas, New Jersey, New York, West Virginia and Virginia) do not carry any infectious pathogens.

The Asian tick infests host animals in dense clusters of numerous ticks. Female Asian ticks reproduce asexually, so a single tick can lay 2,000 eggs after feeding on a host. Cattle, pets, small mammals, birds and humans are all potential hosts.

To protect against ticks, people are reminded to wear long sleeves and pants when outdoors and use insect repellant containing DEET to help keep you safe from ticks and the diseases they carry. It is also important to check yourself and your pets for ticks when you return indoors.

Native to East and Central Asia, the tick was originally identified in the U.S. in New Jersey, where it was found in large numbers in sheep in Mercer County in 2017. It has also been found in Arkansas, New Jersey, New York, West Virginia and Virginia.

To reduce tick habitat, maintain a nine-foot distance between lawn or pasture and wooded areas, keep grass height low, and remove weeds and brush bordering wooded areas.

Rep. Delozier in the Community

 
• On Saturday, Mechanicsburg Borough held its third annual Community Day kicked off by Mayor Jack Ritter and borough council in the Park. It was great to see so many people come together to enjoy the beautiful park and its facilities. The Olde Towne Baseball Game, fire company’s kids’ course, bounce houses and a free day at the pool were just some of the reasons to attend.

 
• The Central Chapter of the Pennsylvania Restaurant and Lodging Association hosted a legislative roundtable earlier this week. I joined some of my House colleagues in providing an update and heard the concerns of those in attendance. Hospitality industry employees work long hours to provide important services to residents and visitors alike.

• Lisburn Community Fire Company held its Olde Time Festival at the end of last week. This annual event offers something for everyone and included food, music and rides. If you’ve never been, I encourage you to attend next year.

 
• On Wednesday, I celebrated India Independence Day during a ceremony at the Capitol. Asian Indians play an important role in our community. I’m glad to have had the opportunity to speak at the event.
