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.

This week, I visited the Farm Show and interviewed Russell Redding, secretary of the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture; participated in Mike Waugh Celebrity Draft Horse Team Driving Competition; and helped the Valley Grange No. 1360 and the Pennsylvania Dairymen’s Association sell milkshakes. While I did not win the draft horse competition, I did hit the most cones!

Locally, the 88th 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.

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.
                                                                                                 
Rep. Delozier in the Community
 
• Earlier this week, I spoke at a Youth Advocate Program (YAP) legislative and policy training. I shared information about the Clean Slate Law that I authored and talked about legislative advocacy.
• On Thursday, I attended the Friends of the West Shore Theatre’s open house giving visitors one last look at the theatre in its present form. Silent movies were projected on the screen, along with live performances of 1940s music. A rendering of phase one of the planned changes was available for review. I look forward to the revitalization of the New Cumberland downtown, along with this theatre that has been part of the landscape for generations.

 
• Recently, I visited with preschoolers at the Kindergarten Academy in Mechanicsburg. While there, I read “Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes” by Eric Litwin. Afterward, I had a conversation on the importance of preschool with leaders from the Mechanicsburg Area School District and the United Way.
