EMA Towers-Alternate PSAPs
In light of comments by Commissioner Stohler, Commissioner Litz took a field trip to see the north and south mountain EMA towers. Like most counties, Lebanon County is cash strapped with needs but no money to fund those needs. In light of the current Economic Stimulus Package, an adequate alternate Public Service Answering Point facility would take Lebanon County from barely holding our heads above water to becoming a leader in the community, especially when it comes to training volunteers on topics from Ag Terrorism to Safe Schools Planning. •Land is available. •The Municipal Building is not bomb proof. •A hill on site could serve as a bunker for the hardened section. •Fire School training is close to the proposed facility. •Infrastructure is available to the site. I cant think of a better investment than the safety of a community. The construction or improvement of an EMA facility will help us to meet federal and state guidelines (with a fully functioning alternate PSAPs) and provide a sense of security knowing that Lebanon County has built in redundancy. Obviously, the project will create jobs, which will help to stimulate the economy.

3 Big Retirement Withdrawal Mistakes
For more information on our WealthVision Financial Plan check out our info page here; http://moneyevolution.com/wealthvision/ For access to the 7 Core Elements of Retirement Planning Video Series and Action Guide Click here. http://moneyevolution.com/7-core-elements-yt/ Today I'm going to talk about Three Big Retirement Plan Withdrawal Mistakes. If you're planning for retirement, you're going to be looking at how you can make a transition from what we call the retirement accumulation phase, when you've been saving and investing money for your retirement, into the retirement withdrawal phase. You're going to take some of that money that you saved, and you're going to start distributing that money back to you, by starting to take some withdrawals. There's three big mistakes that we see people make here. Mistake number one is probably the most common one that we see, and it's Waiting Too Long to Begin Taking Withdrawals. And this mistake can actually compound into a couple of other little mistakes that actually can cost you a lot of money. People will often begin taking their Social Security benefits as early as they can at age 62, and not only does this prevent them from getting a bigger Social Security check and kind of maximizing that, but it also means that they're delaying taking their retirement plan withdrawals, and what that does is compound itself down the road, because as many of you probably know, at 70 1/2, the IRS is going to mandate that you're going to start taking some withdrawals from those retirement accounts. It's called the Required Minimum Distribution Rules. And what that might do is push you up into a higher tax bracket at that time, and on top of that, it can also affect your Medicare premiums as well, because your Medicare premiums are tied to the level of income that you make. So the more money you make, the more you pay for Medicare. One of the things that we look for, though, as a way to kind of get around this mistake is to really map out some of those cash flows. One of the things that we identified is that by taking some retirement plan withdrawals early on in retirement we can take advantage of what we call low tax years. If you're waiting to take Social Security, for example, or maybe your pension doesn't kick in right away, you might have few years early on in your retirement where you're in a very low tax bracket. By taking some of those retirement plan withdrawals early, you can take advantage of those low tax years and at the same time, help you get a bigger Social Security check down the road. It could also take some pressure off of some of those required minimum distributions. Maybe some of those won't be so high and pushing you up into those higher tax brackets. We can also look at doing some Roth conversions too as a way to take advantage of some of those low tax years. The second mistake is Taking Your Distributions At Too High Of A Rate. What I mean by this is that there are some schools of thought out there. Probably the most prominent of these is something called the four percent rule. This was created by financial planner, William Bengen back in the 90s, and he did a lot of math, studied some probability and statistics, and said that if you limit your retirement plan withdrawals to no more than four percent of your entire portfolio each year, you should have a pretty good chance that your money is going to last you throughout the rest of your lifetime. If we think about the four percent as kind of our withdrawal rate that we should be targeting, consider that if we go up to five or six percent, it may not seem like a big difference, but looking at the math, your probability of running out of money goes up pretty high once you start getting up to five, and especially once you get up to six percent or more. The last mistake is Not Understanding Your Cash Flow Needs. One of the things that we want to understand are some of the variabilities that you might be experiencing with your income and your expenses in retirement. Here we talk about the sequencing of returns. That's what William Bengen did when he did his research on the four percent rule. If we're earning, let’s say, a six or seven percent average return over time, because of the sequencing of returns, we could end up with a bad string of years where we're not earning that average or we have down markets, what is the impact of that on our long-term ability to sustain our retirement withdrawals? One of the ways we can get around this is to use a bucket strategy. What that means is we keep one to two years worth of liquid cash reserves in an account that's very safe, very accessible, so that as you need money to supplement your retirement, we don’t have to take it out of some of the riskier investments that might be in the stock or the bond market.

How Pennsylvania rigged its electoral map
Partisan gerrymandering is rampant in America. Read more about the decision and its significance on vox.com: http://bit.ly/2CORxqW Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO Every ten years, America readjusts its voting districts. Which state you live in determines a key aspect of that prospect: who draws the map? In most states, politicians get to control that process. That can sometimes lead to political gamesmanship from both parties. In early 2018, the state of Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court found that the latest redistricting plan set up voters with a politically biased voting map. Which made it easier for one party to win representation in the national body of lawmakers. The implications of this discovery are significant. A new map could be a part of a shift in the balance of power in the United States.

Program aims to keep kids in school
By: Lara Greenberg HARRISBURG, Pa. -- One group is invading schools in hopes of increasing the graduation rate. There are two school districts in our area that are getting this group's attention. "Communities in Schools" is the group pushing this program in Harrisburg and York. They said the most recent on-time graduation rate available for Harrisburg is 46%. The group is looking to change that in just three years. Barriers are what Ryan Riley says is keeping students in the midstate from graduating on time. He says the biggest barrier is poverty. "Our teachers do a really good job at caring for their classrooms, but that nonacademic barriers is an issue that especially our urban schools, but most schools, don't know how to deal with," Communities in Schools president Ryan Riley said. That's where Riley's Communities in Schools, or CIS, group comes in. The organization focuses on reducing high school dropout rates. He said York has an on-time graduation of 73% compared to Harrisburg's 46%. "That's just bad. It's sad," parent Jazz Brown said. This school year, CIS zeroed in on Harrisburg and York, sending site coordinators to eight schools. Riley says the coordinators work with students and parents to address hunger, counseling and whatever else is needed. One parent said programs like this are necessary. "It takes a village to raise kids, period. You need as much help as you can get," Brown said. Riley says Home Depot even donated so CIS could offer laundry services at some schools. "They gave us washer and dryers and so we have a program where we can launder the clothes so the students feel like they have clean clothes," he said. Riley says in Pennsylvania schools where CIA has come in, CIS has helped bring on-time graduation rates up to 85% and improved grades with 96% of students. In Harrisburg and York, he hopes to make the same kinds of leaps. "We've been seeing improved attendance, improved parent engagement, higher parents attending student-teacher conferences," Riley said. "We need more of these programs. We really do. I hate that our kids are failing. It's sad. We don't want our kids to fail," Brown said. "Communities in Schools" has funding to work in Harrisburg and York for three years. Official data and results from the first year should be available by July.

Hearings begin in case of York city schools takeover
Reported By: Kyle Rogers YORK, Pa. -- A judge began hearings Monday to decide if he should appoint a receiver for the School District of York City. Judge Stephen Linebaugh opened up the courtroom on Monday morning to hear from lawyers representing the Pennsylvania Department of Education€™s petition to take over the city€™s schools. Before the testimony began, the judge agreed on a motion to suppress subpoenas issued by the teachers€™ union to look into communications between Charter Schools USA and the Department of Education. €œThe subpoenas were issued, in my opinion, on a fishing expedition,€ Clyde Vedder, an attorney representing the Department of Education said. €œThe interveners all want to make this case about a referendum of whether charter schools are a proper educational vehicle.€ Marc Tarlow, the attorney representing the school district, had no comment. Charter Schools USA could run the city€™s schools should the district€™s Chief Recovery Officer David Meckley be appointed as the receiver. Meckley was questioned Monday morning mostly about his background and his position as a CRO. Meckley, a longtime engineer, was appointed by the education department to assist in its recovery plan. He testified saying he made the motion to proceed to receivership based on decisions made by the school board, he felt were not on track to a proper recovery. In court, Meckley said he asked for receivership €“ among other things like poor grades -- because the district did not agree with an alternative plan to place some of the city€™s schools into charter, while keeping others in possession. Meckley was cross-examined by Tarlow in the afternoon saying the school district is expecting a $3 million dollar surplus, quite different than the projected $15 million deficit Meckley had predicted. On Tuesday, lawyers for the school district are expected to make their case on why the school district should not enter into receivership under Meckley. The hearing is scheduled to begin by 10:30 a.m.

Students Will Be Armed With Rocks in Case of School Shooting, PA Superintendent Says
A school district in Pennsylvania has announced it intends to arm students in case a school shooting takes place at one of their schools—with rocks. The students will have a bucket of rocks nearby to hurl at a shooter, the superintendent of the Blue Mountain School District announced. “Every classroom has been equipped with a five-gallon bucket of river stone. If an armed intruder attempts to gain entrance into any of our classrooms, they will face a classroom full students armed with rocks and they will be stoned,” said Dr. David Helsel, testifying to the House Education Committee last week in Harrisburg. Helsel told WNEP that the idea is legitimate and can help if a shooter does open fire in a school. “At one time I just had the idea of river stone, they`re the right size for hands, you can throw them very hard and they will create or cause pain, which can distract,” said Helsel. The unorthodox measure isn’t the only one the district is taking; teachers, students, and other staff members were given training through the ALICE program. The active shooter response training focuses on preparing school attendees in the event of a shooting. According to the training institute’s website, “ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate) Training instructor-led classes provide preparation and a plan for individuals and organizations on how to more proactively handle the threat of an aggressive intruder or active shooter event.” It added, “Whether it is an attack by an individual person or by an international group of professionals intent on conveying a political message through violence, ALICE Training option based tactics have become the accepted response, versus the traditional ‘lockdown only’ approach.” But Helsel said the bucket of rocks will be crucial if teachers lockdown a classroom. Students and teachers said they support the idea. “It matters because it will help protect the schools, anything helps, rocks are better than books and pencils,” one student told WNEP. However, others dismissed it. “I think it’s rather comical,” one student said.

Gov. Wolf lays out plans for PA
By: Lara Greenberg HARRISBURG, Pa. -- There's a new governor in town. Democrat Tom Wolf was sworn in Tuesday afternoon as the 47th person to hold the position in Pennsylvania. He replaces one-term Republican Gov. Tom Corbett. There was a sense of hope and optimism for the future of Pennsylvania as Wolf was sworn in. There was some disruption caused by fracking protesters during the inauguration, but Wolf stayed focused and insistent on fixing three of the state‚„s big problems. "Over the next four years, my administration will be dedicated to three simple things: First, jobs that pay, second, schools that teach, and third, a government that works," Wolf said. With that first goal, jobs, Wolf pushed to bring manufacturing jobs back to the state and used that moment to address fracking protesters in the crowd, some of whom were removed from the stands during his speech. "To the protesters here today, I say: Help me develop these opportunities in a way that is clean, safe and sustainable," Wolf said. Wolf also spoke to the need for every student in the Commonwealth to have a strong, solid education and for every teacher to have the resources they need to provide one. "Our state will never be as strong as it needs to be if some schools have all the resources they need and other schools are cutting band and football just to keep the lights on," Wolf said. Wolf acknowledged that with a Republican-controlled state legislature lawmakers will have to work across party lines to accomplish his goals, but he believes they can. "I know that if we come together with a sense of shared purpose, we can build the better future we all deserve as Pennsylvanians," Wolf said.

Fight against bullying
YOUR DESCRIPTION HAS REACHED THE LIMIT OF CHARACTERS ALLOWED AND WAS CUT. By: Jackalyn Kovac JOHNSTOWN, Pa. ‚" Every parent worries about their child nad hopes they are not a victim of bullying. The topic of bullying is extremely sensitive. WJAC-TV reached out to a number of victims and their parents, but all of them backed out at the last minute in fear of increased bullying. In the state of Pennsylvania, schools are required to have anti-bullying policies in place to help students, but is it enough to protect children from the lasting effects of bullying? Bullying, by definition, is unwanted aggressive behavior that is repeated multiple times. "The person that's being targeted didn't do anything to put themselves in that situation and needs help to get out of it," Shiryl Barto said. Barto is the manager of the Center for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention at Windber Research Institute. She said bullying is often first seen in elementary school and is most reported by the victim and witnesses. "They still sense right and wrong and want teachers to do something about that," Barto said. Barto said as children get older, the bullying continues and the reports decrease. She said children in high school report bullying the least of all, and schools need to teach kids what the bullying behavior is. But as a parent, what should you look for to know if your child is being bullied? Barto said students who are bullied may try to avoid school and extracurriculars by faking an illness, and their grades may take a turn. She said possession may go missing as students try to barter their way out of this situation. Experts suggest talking with your child bout what is going on so that a plan of action can be taken. "A very important thing adults can do, aside from learning what it is and what it isn't, is to listen," Barto said. "To maybe share some stories with children about their own experiences when they were growing up." Barto said bullying isn't something new. Other generations went through it, and some see it as a normal part of growing up. But more spotlight on the topic has led to laws and policies in 49 states, but nothing federally. Pennsylvania's anti-bullying laws cover both bullying and cyberbullying. WJAC-T V reviewed the law and found it only outlines how a school's policy should look. "We're more of a local control state, so we try to keep everything at the local level," Michael Kozup, the Pennsylvania Department of Education Safe Schools Office director, said. The law requires schools to have a policy related to bullying and incorporate it into the school's student code of conduct and appoint a staff person to receive the reports of alleged bullying incidents. WJAC-TV spoke with three schools in the viewing area, and those districts said they appointed a safety officer or a principal to handle the reports for their district. Schools must also post their policies online. Of the three districts, Greater Johnstown School District did not have a clear link to their policy, but after a quick call to the school's administration, a copy of the policy was provided. The policies must be reviewed every three years, and revised policies must be submitted with their annual report. The law does not include information about what should be included in the policy and how it should be implemented. Kozup said most districts get their policies from the Pennsylvania School Board Association. He didn't have any comment on whether the state should have a direct law, but where parents should look for a solution to problem

Area superintendents dealing with significant amount of snow days
Original Air Date: 2/20/14 By: Kerri Corrado FERNDALE, Pa. -- There seem to be more snow days than school days recently, as the winter weather has walloped counties throughout the area. Now district leaders are tasked with figuring out how to fit the snow make-up days into their schedules.This is probably the most difficult winter we have had to deal with school delays, school cancellations, and early dismissals, Ferndale School District Superintendent Carol Kakabar said.Mother Nature seems to have been granting student wishes for a snow day one too many times this winter, but school officials have plans in place to make up the days missed.You use your built-in snow days first, Kakabar said. Typically the days after that, that are missed, [those] are added to the end of the school year and that bumps back the last day of school and obviously graduation.Extending the school year is a common theme among school districts. Many students will have to attend school well into June.We are at the point now where we need to look at bumping the end of the school year, Clearfield Area School District Superintendent Terry Struble said.School officials are working with the Pennsylvania Department of Education to make sure they meet their 180 days of school requirement, plus meeting their set number of classroom hour requirements.We have Keystone Exams, we have PSSA's [testing] and a lot of other work that we need to help prepare our kids for, Struble said.School officials are stressing the importance of having snow days to make sure their students are safe as they monitor the forecast, check in with municipal crews about roadway conditions and try to notify parents if school is canceled as soon as possible.If the roads aren't suitable to drive on, we don't want our children on the bus, Kakabar said.

PennDOT, police urging safe driving during Nat
By: Erin Calandra STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- They're popping up everywhere: construction zones. This is National Work Zone Safety Week, and officials are minding drivers to be careful. With when orange cones and construction signs popping up all over the place, and now, PennDOT and police are reminding drivers to slow down and save a life. PennDOT Assistant Maintenance Manager Jeff Collins knows what it's like to work on the highway while trucks and other vehicles blow past. "You're trying to focus on the work you're doing plus look out for cars," said Collins. The PennDOT workers you see on the side of the interstate are just like us. They know driving through construction can be frustrating, but they have a job to do, and they want to get home to their families safely. And police officers are out in full force keeping a watchful eye. We've all seen them before -- orange flags and cones, "Road Work," "One Lane Ahead" ‚" these signs are trying to tell you something, and officials are warning drivers that when they get into an active construction zone, they need to slow down, pay attention and stay a safe distance around other vehicles ‚" or their fine will be doubled. Collins said the bottom line is to slow down and safe a life. "Everyone is trying to get to where they are going fast and they need to take time to watch for workers," said Collins.

What Research Tells Us About Reducing Chronic Absenteeism
This recording of the virtual workshop, What Research Tells Us About Reducing Chronic Absenteeism: A Webinar for the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE), enables participants to better understand chronic absenteeism, its prevalence and use as an accountability measure in Pennsylvania, and promising strategies for preventing and reducing it. Presenters introduce chronic absenteeism and discuss its root causes and prevalence nationally and in Pennsylvania. They then provide an overview of how PDE plans to hold schools accountable for chronic absenteeism and describe key components of interventions that have succeeded in reducing chronic absenteeism, as identified through an Ask-a-REL literature search. The workshop concludes with two school- and community-based practitioners sharing their experiences partnering and implementing an intervention identified through the Ask-a-REL and answering audience-submitted questions.
