No injuries reported in school bus accident

NEW CASTLE — No students were injured in an accident Friday afternoon involving a Mohawk school bus.

According to superintendent Kathy Kwolek, the accident occurred around 4 p.m. on Martin Kelly Spears Road in Mahoning Township.

A car struck the bus, which was carrying about nine elementary students, near the intersection with Churchill Road.

Kwolek said personnel from Noga Ambulance were sent to the scene to examine the children, but none was injured.

Parents also were contacted, Kwolek said, and some who lived near the accident site arrived to take their children home.

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?
