BROOKVILLE â€” Last Friday, the Jefferson County Commissioners proclaimed April as Child Abuse Prevention Month.
Pat Berger, executive director and forensic interviewer for Western PA CARES for Kids, said she appreciated the month-long recognition, but reminds county residents that child abuse occurs every day.
â€śI think itâ€™s important that we as a community are watching out for children and are aware that itâ€™s happening all the time,â€ť she said.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” The end is in sight for the PennDOT traffic signal project, with paving scheduled. But some members of Punxsutawney Borough Council have questions regarding the new no-turn-on-red signs placed at two of the downtown intersections.
Milling, paving and line painting is scheduled from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. the week of April 16-20, Borough Manager Ben White said at Tuesdayâ€™s Public Works Committee meeting, while the traffic signal turn-ons are scheduled for April 25-26 at two intersections per day.
