Are you distracted by your cell phone or life in general? Guess who needs your FULL attention: Kids getting on and off buses or waiting at a bus stop.
As the new school year begins, PennDOT reminds drivers in Moon and Robinson to remain vigilant as students and school buses return to the roadways. That means: Put the cell phone away, set your cup of coffee down, don't look in your rear-view mirror to fix your hair. Concentrate on who and what is around you. Countless accidents happen in the Pine-Richland community because drivers admit that they simply were not paying attention. (Check out our Traffic Blotters.) “Our ultimate goal is to make sure everyone safely arrives at their destination,” said PennDOT Secretary Barry J. Schoch. “Motorists should avoid distractions and obey school bus and school zone traffic laws so we have the safest possible environment for students boarding and …

Tell us your lunch box memories in the comments section or explain what your kids are bringing to school on the first day.
I can still hear my sandwich, apple and thermos rattling around in that blue, plastic lunch box I brought to school each day in elementary school. The food would be making a deep clunking sound as I carried my Snoopy lunch box with my little backpack slung across my shoulders. Ka-clunck, ka-clunk, ka-clunck. My elementary school in Mt. Lebanon, just a couple blocks from the house, didn’t serve hot food, so we packed our lunches each day or walked up to the now defunct Chicago’s Pizzeria when we were old enough. The only thing I did buy each day was a half-pint of milk. But by the time we made it to junior high, we were too cool for lunch boxes and usually brown bagged it or ate that scrumptious cafeteria food (anyone remember those pizza …

She said the gymnasium, library and auditorium are still undergoing renovations, but classrooms…
