State and local police, plus PennDOT, are taking part in a national initiative through Labor Day to target motorists driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

"As we remind motorists to drive sober for the Labor Day holiday, we also want to raise awareness of the growing safety threat that drugged drivers present," PennDOT Secretary Barry J. Schoch said. "While overall DUI crashes are trending downward, we're seeing a troubling increase in drug-related crashes each year."

“We rate schools based on their contribution to the public good in three broad categories:
1. Social Mobility (recruiting and graduating low-income students),
2. Research (producing cutting-edge scholarship and PhDs), and
3. Service (encouraging students to give something back to their country).”

The Dramateurs at the Barn Playhouse in West Norriton performed “A Little Night Music” Sunday afternoon, and we were there. It was marvelous, and well worth the $15-$17 a ticket. We cannot sufficiently stress that community theater in the suburbs offers affordable family entertainment, and it doesn’t require a trip into the city, or big bucks for parking.

Based on Ingmar Bergman’s “Smiles Of A Summer Night,” the play is a summer idyll about mismatched couples and the importance of seizing and appreciating life’s rare wonderful moments, because they are fleeting.
