Remember Those Who Labor This Holiday Weekend

Labor Day weekend marks the symbolic end of summer. There are trips to the shore, cookouts with family and time spent on the water boating or fishing. I encourage you to take a few moments from enjoying Labor Day festivities to recall the significance of the holiday.

Labor Day is a time we set aside to thank and honor all workers for their contributions to society. From factory workers to first responders, teachers to medical professionals, and municipal and county workers to small business owners – everyone plays an important role in helping our community grow and prosper. Many people will have the ability to rest from their labor, but others serve in positions that will require them to work through the holiday. When you encounter such individuals this weekend, offer them a kind and encouraging word to thank them for all they do. I likewise thank all of you who are or have been employed for the services you have provided. This is your holiday. Enjoy it to the fullest, and please stay safe. Happy Labor Day!

School In Session, Watch for Buses, Students

With school now in session, motorists are reminded to use additional caution on roadways with school buses and other school transportation vehicles soon taking to the road.
Pennsylvania law requires that motorists stop at least 10 feet away from school buses when their red lights are flashing and their stop arm is extended. Motorists following or traveling alongside a school bus must also stop until the red lights have stopped flashing and the stop arm is withdrawn. Do not proceed until all the children have reached a place of safety.

Penalties for failure to obey school bus safety laws can result in a $250 fine, five points on a driving record and a 60-day license suspension. Parents are reminded to ensure that their children are at the bus stop early to avoid rushing. Students should stay where the bus driver can see them while boarding or exiting the bus.

Beware of “Skimmers”

I want to make you aware of the use of “skimmers” on payment devices, a technic used by criminals to obtain your data off of a magnetic strip on your credit or debit card. Typically, a devise is planted on machines, such as ATMs or gas pumps, and then steals your information The data can then be used to withdraw money from your bank account, or make charges to your credit card.

Tips to protect yourself:                                    

  • Use ATMs in well-lit, secure locations and avoid using ATMs that are stand-alone units in corners of stores or other out-of-the-way locations.
  • Look at the card reader slot and surrounding areas to see if anything looks out of place, mismatched, or loose.
  • Make sure no one is watching you enter your PIN (or possibly filming you on a cell phone).
  • Consider using your credit card instead of your debit card to avoid compromising your PIN and to gain other consumer protections.
  • Choose gas pumps that are closer to and within the line of vision of the cashiers.
  • Check your bank and credit card statements frequently to watch for fraudulent activity and report any unfamiliar activity immediately.
