A conference on African American health problems yesterday recommended dozens of ways to improve health care in Pennsylvania and called for establishing a state agency for minority health issues. Conference leader State Rep. David P. Richardson (D., Phila.) said the goal of the four-day session was to persuade Gov. Casey to provide $3.5 million for the proposed agency.

We just speak off the cuff," Richardson told about 40 conference delegates who issued recommendations to be presented to Casey.

Calling themselves the Citizens Marcellus Shale Commission, organizers also countered criticism from one of their former members, Maya K. van Rossum, who on Friday described their final recommendations as watered down to become "politically palatable.

The executive director of the Chester County Intermediate Unit presented at the West Chester Area school board meeting this week alternatives regarding the future of the county's two vocational-technical schools. During the board's monthly meeting Monday, John K. Baillie reported on the recommendations of the Occupational Education Advisory Council, formed to study the reasons for the decline in enrollments at the county's two vo-tech schools. He told the board that the council's recommendations offer alternatives that would help to bolster enrollments and would make the vo-tech school programs eventually pay for themselves.

A much-anticipated report, aimed at settling the stalemated contract negotiations in the Coatesville Area School District, recommends that salaries for the district's 485 teachers be raised by 6 percent or more in each of the next three years. The recommended salary increase is more than double what the Coatesville school board has offered to pay the teachers. The report, completed by the Pennsylvania Labor Relations Board, was ordered because of the two sides' inability to reach agreement on a new teachers' contract.

The transition team tasked with issuing recommendations for Mayor Kenney's first year in office handed him more than 100 suggested initiatives in a 65-page report released Tuesday. If Kenney follows the recommendations - and the timeline - he's got a busy road ahead. The report, compiled and edited by Kenney's policy team, largely reflects his campaign promises across every aspect of city government, but offers few details on how to fund or accomplish the initiatives. Kenney spokeswoman Lauren Hitt said the report offered recommendations, "not a list of what we're going to do. Some we will do, some we won't be able to do. " In November, Kenney appointed a diverse collection of leaders from the public and private sector to focus on five areas: education, economic opportunity, public safety, efficient government, and ensuring a diverse workforce.

HARRISBURG - Gov. Corbett's advisory group on natural gas drilling in the Marcellus Shale is set to meet in public Friday to recommend ways for dealing with the growing industry - catch is, the public won't necessarily know what it is they are recommending. That is because the governor's much-ballyhooed commission has decided it will not detail the actual recommendations when voting on them, but instead include those that are approved in a report it will send to the governor by the end of next week.

A daily dose of aspirin can help prevent both heart disease and colorectal cancer in adults age 50 to 69 who are at an increased risk for cardiovascular problems, an independent panel of medical experts said Monday. The final recommendation from the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force said that low-dose aspirin - typically, 81 mg - is most beneficial for people age 50 to 59. For adults 60 to 69, a decision should be made with their doctors because aspirin can increase the risk of bleeding, the panel said.

Sparking strong reaction from doctors and child-development experts, an influential task force says there's insufficient evidence to argue definitely that the benefits of screening all young children for autism outweigh the harms. "There's not enough evidence for us to recommend for or against screening in children for autism under 30 months," said David Grossman, a Seattle pediatrician who is vice chair of the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force. "Clinicians need to make a judgment on their own about whether to screen.

Wolf, including 184 recommendations that identify best practices for pipeline siting, permitting and safety.

Though pipeline regulation largely falls under the scope of the federal goverment, the recommendations include suggestions on employing better routing and construction methods to reduce environmental and community impacts.
