  • Never Forget Sept. 11, 2001
     
    On the 16th anniversary of the devastating terrorist attacks on our nation, communities throughout the country are pausing to remember the nearly 3,000 men and women who were killed on Sept. 11, 2001, in New York, Virginia and Pennsylvania.

    It is my hope that events like these, which will take place across the nation, will remind all Americans we are a nation founded on principals of tolerance, religious freedom and freedom of speech. God bless America and all who live here.

    REAL ID Extension Requested

    Pennsylvania recently applied to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for a REAL ID enforcement extension. The current extension is set to expire on Oct. 10. Should the extension be granted, Pennsylvanians would continue to be allowed to use their current driver’s licenses or PennDOT ID cards to enter federal facilities.

    Earlier this summer, the governor signed into law Senate Bill 133, now called Act 3 of 2017, which gives residents a choice of obtaining either a REAL ID-compliant license or ID card or a standard driver’s license or ID card. PennDOT plans to have REAL IDs available in the spring of 2019 and is hopeful that DHS will issue additional extensions to Pennsylvania during this time frame. Oct. 1, 2020, is the date REAL IDs will be mandatory for anyone boarding a commercial flight. For additional information, visit www.dmv.pa.gov.

    Spotted Lanternfly Spotted in Doylestown Township

    The Spotted Lanternfly, an invasive insect from China, has been found in Doylestown Township. The insects have the potential to destroy crops, such as grapes, tree fruits and hardwood lumber. Spotted lanternflies have been found in wooded areas and residential landscapes, especially where there are tree-of-heaven trees.

    According to the, the United States Department of Agriculture has confirmed the presence of the dangerously invasive lanternfly in three areas of the township: Font Hill, Hospital Drive and New Britain Road near the Rt. 611 Bypass.

    Sightings of the fly in northern Bucks County were already confirmed this summer, prompting a quarantine in Springfield, East Rockhill, West Rockhill, Perkasie and Sellersville. Sightings have also been confirmed in Montgomery and Berks counties.

    The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, which in August announced the local towns under quarantine, has not confirmed if this development now means that Doylestown Township is under quarantine as well.

    Any item, which includes firewood, vehicles, outdoor household items and any items stored outside during the fall, as well as building materials and plants that could hold any life stage of the insect may not be moved outside the quarantine area without inspection and compliance. The impacted communities support the quarantine.
