Greensburg Tuesday takes
On a roll: Las Vegas is the latest destination for Spirit Airlines’ nonstop flights from Arnold Palmer Regional Airport, beginning April 16. Obviously Spirit’s air-travel model is working at the Unity airport, which has added more parking (which is free) to accommodate the increase in travelers. Indeed, operations have taken off. Here’s hoping local gamblers en route to Vegas will have the good sense not to wager their return tickets home.
Roof issues: A $1.2 million roof installed in 2003 at Norwin High School shouldn’t be leaking in two spots in 2014. The roof has a 20-year warranty. Before any quickie patch jobs are done “under warranty,” the entire roof should be thoroughly inspected and a determination made as to whether there’s a problem with the roofing materials or the roof’s installation. The district should not contend with any more leaks over the course of the warranty.
Slow down: A state trooper faces weeks of recovery after he was struck by an SUV as he picked up debris on Route 119 in East Huntingdon. State police said the trooper parked his vehicle to block the right lane and its emergency lights were on. Most drivers have sense enough to slow down when they see flashing lights in the distance, whether it’s an accident scene or a construction zone. People who don’t shouldn’t be driving.
