Snow caused few problems

NEW CASTLE — Despite a weather system that turned roads icy Saturday evening, no major problems were reported by local police agencies.

Snow squalls put a quick coating of snow on roadways, turning roads and walkways slippery about 5:30 p.m. Saturday. 

A pick-up truck overturned on Interstate 376 in Union Township just before 6 p.m. but the driver was not injured, according to Steve Stasko, chief of Union Township Volunteer Fire Department. The driver, whose name was not available, was from South Carolina and was driving too fast for conditions, he said.

Otherwise, the Pennsylvania State Police and other police agencies reported no major problems, just a number of fender benders.

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?
