Greensburg Tuesday takes
Route 30’s “direction”: Little more than a month after a head-on crash killed police Lt. Eric Eslary on the divided highway in Ligonier Township, a car turned on to the same highway eastbound in the westbound lane at Kingston Dam. It nearly collided with an oncoming vehicle before moving over and driving away, the wrong way, in the breakdown lane. A closer look at the highway’s access points between the dam and Ligonier is warranted before another tragedy unfolds.
Easy money: On the “advice of counsel,” the excuse de jour of educrats everywhere, Norwin’s school board approved a new $110,000-a-year administrative job for former Stewartsville Elementary School Principal Doreen Harris, who, to no one’s surprise, was the only candidate considered. This, after Ms. Harris was sued for age discrimination by a retired janitor, for whom the school board unanimously approved a $72,538 settlement. Did we mention that the same stewards of the public’s interest saw fit to approve a 2015-16 budget with a 2-mill property tax increase?
Cleaning up: So many volunteers showed up during the first two scheduled Saturdays for Jeannette’s cleanup days that a third day was canceled. That level of commitment by volunteers is encouraging. It’s also something to build on.
