Pipeline program set at Westminster

NEW CASTLE — “Pipelines and Pooling: Expanding Natural Gas Issues” will be presented at Westminster College Saturday.

Roberta Winters, a former board member of the Pennsylvania League of Woman Voters, will lead the program set for 10:30 a.m. in Room 207 of Patterson Hall.

She will present again at 2 p.m. at the Mercer County Penn State Extension office, 463 North Perry Highway, Mercer. Both presentations are free.

Winter will discuss the nature of the pipeline infrastructure, its environmental impact, regulation and the role the public plays in pipeline siting and safety. She will also review how recent legislation has altered the rights of landowners.

Winters served two terms on the state league as director for natural resources and as vice president for issues and action. She coordinated the Marcellus Shale Natural Gas Extraction study guides and chaired the addendum studies on pipelines and pooling.

The presentations are co-sponsored by Westminster’s Environmental Programs and the League of Women Voters of Mercer County.

Contact Helen Boylan at (724) 946-6293 for additional information.

As Pennsylvania’s tax revenues from casinos plateau, some are saying Internet gambling should be legalized in the state. Do you agree?

Yes. If people are willing to spend money, I’m all for our state collecting additional taxes.
No. We’re already seeing casino tax revenue dropping. This would just saturate the market even further.
