People need to use care in active school zones

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

I would like to acknowledge New Castle Police Officer Chris Fabian and The News for bringing attention to the issue of school zones.

I cross kids in front of John F. Kennedy Elementary School and it amazes me how drivers speed the way they do. I think they do not realize these are children in grades one through three. Some of these children are no taller than my hip, yet cars speed through at 50-plus mph.

I urge people to slow down. The zone isn’t that big, and if people think they are running late, they should think how much later they will be if they hit a child.

Are you concerned enough about the Heartbleed bug on the Internet to change all of your social media and website passwords?

Yes. It’s always a good idea to change passwords regularly anyway. I just have so many, I’m not sure where to start.
No. From what I’ve read, companies are still trying to figure out how to fix the flaw. The bad guys will just have access to my NEW passwords, too.
Not sure, but I blame Al Gore. He invented the Internet, right? How’s he going to get us out of this mess?
