Day’s school safety security bill now law

Gov. Tom Wolf has allowed my legislation, House Bill 178, to lapse into law and become the Public School Code of the 2017-18 budget package.

Overall, I am pleased that important measures to allow schools to better prepare for safety and security threats, along with other significant improvements to our educational system.

Our children and their education must be at the forefront when we consider any type of public policy.

EDITOR’S VIEW

Thursday, November 16, 2017 by The Press in Opinion

The gift that keeps giving must be the right fit

If you have ever loved and lost a pet, you will understand my family’s hesitation in getting another.

I have written about my pets before — a 16-1/2-year-old Old English Sheepdog and an indoor shelter cat we had for more than 16 years.

Both died recently within six months of each other. We have been in mourning.

My Editor’s Views in the past have been about understanding the responsibilities of pet ownership before acquiring a pet for yourself or as a gift for someone else.
