Congratulations to Sandwich Club on 30 Years in Business

Congratulations to Sandwich Club in Langhorne on 30 years in business.  Earlier this week, Lower Bucks Chamber of Commerce hosted a celebration at the shop, where the Amato family, local elected officials, a representative from Langhorne-Middletown Fire Co, and members of the community gathered to recognize and celebrate this incredible milestone.  I was in Harrisburg and was very sorry to miss the event.   On my behalf, our staff presented a citation from the Senate of PA honoring them and their commitment to our community.

Sandwich Club is a staple in our community with not only great food, but incredible owners and staff. The owners, Joe and Rose Amato, do so much for our community and I want to wish them the very best and thank them for being such a great community partner.

Our Shredding Event – April 13

Rep. Joe Hogan and I will be hosting a shredding event on Saturday April 13 from 9-11:30am in my office parking lot, located at 370 East Maple Avenue in Langhorne. 

Residents of the 6th Senate District are encouraged to bring documents that contain sensitive information to be thoroughly shredded.  Due to high demand, individuals are limited to two file boxes of paper to be shredded. This is an event for residents only, no businesses, please. 

Our staff will be on hand during the event to address any state-related issues or questions.

Prior to the event, please place all shredding materials and donation items in the trunk of your vehicle.  Once you arrive, stay in your vehicle and staff will assist with removing the materials. 

Please consider bringing a non-perishable food item to be donated to those locally in need.

2024 Adult Trout Stocking Schedule Available

The 2024 adult trout stocking schedule is now available. The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission will stock approximately 3.2 million adult trout in 695 streams and 128 lakes open to public angling. An additional 1.2 million trout will be stocked by cooperative nurseries.

The trout stocking schedule is searchable by county, lists the waterways in alphabetical order, and indicates stocking dates, meeting locations for volunteers, and the species of trout that are planned to be stocked at each location. Pennsylvania’s statewide Opening Day of Trout Season is April 6. A single, statewide Mentored Youth Trout Day will take place March 30.

Trout to be stocked will include approximately 2.3 million Rainbow Trout, 702,000 Brown Trout, 132,000 Brook Trout and 14,000 Golden Rainbow Trout. As with past practice, the average size of the trout produced for stocking is 11 inches in length.

Cybersecurity Resources for Local Governments

Despite the perception that local governments are too small to be the target of bad actors online, Pennsylvania’s thousands of municipalities are at risk of cyberattack. In fact, 69% of state and local governments reported being hit in 2023 by ransomware – malicious software designed to block access to a computer system until a sum of money is paid.

To combat these attacks that often come with costly consequences, local governments should conduct a cyber assessment and make sure municipal employees understand the importance of using strong passwords and spotting suspicious emails. The initiative grew out of a January hearing held by the Senate Communications and Technology Committee and the Senate Local Government Committee focusing on cybersecurity threats faced by local governments and municipal authorities.

Funding opportunities exist to support cybersecurity efforts through the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency, which administers a program that distributes federal funding. Local governments can learn more at the new Senate Republican Cybersecurity Resources for Local Governments webpage.

Daylight Saving Time Begins This Weekend

Daylight Saving Time begins this Sunday, March 10, at 2 a.m. While cell phone and computer clocks usually change automatically, most people move their standard clocks and appliances ahead one hour on Saturday night.

It’s also a good time to check smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors. If the devices are older than 10 years, experts suggest upgrading to 10-year, sealed battery alarms. They don’t require any battery replacement throughout their lifetime. However, it’s still a good idea to press the test button on the alarms at least once every month.
