Gas line rupture forces school evacuation

NEW CASTLE — George Washington Intermediate Elementary School was evacuated this morning.

A reported gas line rupture forced students from the school. They were transported to the playground at the corner of Park Avenue and North Mercer Street.

New Castle police were in both areas, detouring traffic. The city fire department also was at the school. About 700 children were moved.

Around noon today, the school was being checked for gas.

Parents were being allowed to pick students up at the playground.

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?
