This has been a very busy summer on the campaign trail. We have been to the Ralston parade, Montrose parade, Lewisburg parade, Demfest at Knoebels Grove, Lycoming County Fair in Hughsville, and the Troy Fair in Bradford County.
Coming up will be the Victorian Tea in Laporte, Union County West End Fair, Harford Fair in Susquehanna County, and Sullivan County Fair in Forksville.
I look forward to meeting you at one of these events!

Unearthed director, Jolynn Minnaar, spoke at the 2nd Shale Gas Conference held in Johannesburg yesterday. Entitled A Sidelined Society: The sales pitch, seclusion and secrecy around shale gas, her address unpacked the flawed sales pitch presented to South Africa, illustrated the seclusion of rural communities being targeted for gas extraction and revealed the devastating prevalence of non-disclosure agreements that have bought the natural gas industry a spotless track record of “no documented cases of contamination”.

Forcing natural gas out of shale rock through hydraulic fracturing is riskier than conventional gas development and requires tougher rules than those now in place, the International Energy Agency (IEA) says in a new report.
The IEA says such measures are entirely feasible, adding at most 7 percent to the costs of drilling. And the agency says they are necessary.

Today Aqua America will begin to tear down some of what is left of the Riverdale Mobile Home Park in Jersey Shore, PA.
I attended Hands across Riverdale Prayer Vigil last evening. While it was going on people were trying to salvage what they could: their outdoor plants and the siding from their former homes to sell for scrap.
