Watch out for the little ones

School is now in session in all area schools and motorists are asked to watch out for the youngsters waiting for school buses in the early morning. The mornings are often foggy and as the seasons change, it’s still dark when some boys and girls walk to the bus stops. So, slow down and remember they are out there.

Election is near

If you haven’t looked at the calendar lately, you probably don’t realize that the General Election is less than two months away and there are some very important offices on the Nov. 5 Clinton County ballot. It’s never too soon to start checking out the candidates for county commissioner, prothonotary, Lock Haven mayor and more.
