Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro hosted a roundtable and press conference yesterday in Norristown with state legislators, district attorneys, and survivors of child sexual abuse.  The purpose of the roundtable was to highlight the need for the legislature to approve four key reforms recommended by a statewide grand jury that investigated sexual abuse of minors by Catholic Church clergy, and decades of institutional cover up by church leaders.  Shapiro was joined by State Representative Todd Stephens (R-151), and Senator John Rafferty (R-44), along with Montgomery County (D.A. Kevin Steele) and Bucks County (D.A. Matthew Weintraub) Prosecutors.

 

PennDOT District 9 is getting help from area schools including some in Huntingdon County in the “Paint the Plow” creative outreach project.   The project began in 2015 to promote winter safety and has expanded across the Commonwealth.  Schools have been asked to paint plows with a winter safety theme, or even school mascots, incorporating the theme, “Know Before You Go”.  Once the painting is complete, the plow blades will run in the areas of the respective school districts.  PennDOT will pick up the painted blades no later than October 17th.
