An Ohio man has been arrested for providing false ID to Coudersport state police. Troopers say when they stopped 50 year old James Robinson of Martins Ferry, Ohio on a traffic stop, he falsely provided another person’s ID. The victim told police Robinson had done that before on traffic stops because his license was suspended. Besides being charged with providing false ID to law enforcement, Robinson was charged with speeding, failing to show license on demand and driving while license was suspended or revoked.

A Shinglehouse driver and her passenger escaped injury in a car/deer collision late last Monday night in Hebron Township.

The Governor’s Invasive Species Council is conducting the first statewide survey to measure costs of the damage inflicted by invasive species in Pennsylvania, and the costs tied to preventing and controlling them. The 15-20 minute survey distributed earlier in November through the council’s 21 member organizations, will be open until this Friday November 18.

The goal of the survey is to gather comprehensive data on nonnative species, their impact on local and state government, educational institutions, private businesses, property owners, nonprofits, and others working to control invasive species and the pathogens they spread and to counter damage they cause. Data collected from the survey will help inform a strategic, regional partnership approach to managing invasive species.

The Governor’s Invasive Species Council works to identify invasive plant, insect, and animal species that threaten or may threaten Pennsylvania’s natural and agricultural resources and the industries they support. Learn more about the council, the management plans it implements and strategic recommendations, as well as other efforts to protect and grow Pennsylvania’s $132.5 billion agriculture and food industry at
