Transit authority fills management position

NEW CASTLE — David Richards has been hired as assistant general manager of the New Castle Area Transit Authority.

Manager Leonard Lastoria said Richards’ starting salary will be $50,000. The authority board approved the hiring this week.

Richards, 51, replaces Vicki Antonio who resigned in the summer.

Lastoria said a committee made up of three board members and the authority’s solicitor selected Richards from 25 applicants.

Richards served most recently as project manager for Bet-Tech Construction of Aliquippa and for 12 years as chief financial officer for PF Technologies of New Castle. He is also a former city councilman.

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?
