Penn State turfgrass scientists recently developed a nutrient management plan for the Lost Creek Golf Club in Juniata County.  The plan was developed to protect the trout stream that runs through the course.  The innovative project — believed to be the first comprehensive nutrient management plan created for a Pennsylvania golf course — was funded by the Chesapeake Bay program and was part of the Juniata County Conservation District’s restoration of the Lost Creek watershed.  Lost Creek is located in Fayette Township just north of Route 35 in Oakland Mills.   The 18-hole course opened in 1965.

 

With the December 31st entry deadline quickly approaching, PennDOT and the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) are reminding high school students in grades 9 through 12 to submit their entries for PennDOT’s Innovations Challenge.  This year’s challenge asks students to look at innovative methods, aside from laws and educational programs, that can be developed in the next five to 10 years to get drivers to slow down in work zones.  The Innovations Challenge helps students explore transportation challenges and open minds to the possibility of working for PennDOT after graduation.

 

A Chevy Express operated by a Mill Creek woman slid off Route 655 Saturday morning in Menno Township, Mifflin County.  State Police say 19-year-old Debra King was attempting to pass a horse and buggy when her auto hit a patch of ice and went down a small embankment and rolled over.  King was not injured in the crash.
