Based on our review of the record, and for the reasons stated in said report which we adopt and incorporate, we will dismiss the petition as untimely.            We emphasize our agreement with the statement in the WCJ’ s Report that “it [is] a waste of the Board’s resources to respond to a Petition for Reconsideration when the lien claimants (and/or their purported representative(s)) had ample opportunity to object to the notice of intent when it issued, and chose to do nothing until after the WCJ issued the Order Dismissing the Lien Claims.”/ / // / // / // / // / // / // / // / // / / ,             For the foregoing reasons,            IT IS ORDERED that the Petition for Reconsideration is DISMISSED.WORKERS’ COMPENSATION APPEALS BOARD            DEPUTY    _____________________________________________CRISTINE E.
