PUNXSUTAWNEY — Just what you've been waiting for: warm springtime weather so you can hit the highway and travel throughout the area without having to worry about snow and snow plows.

But now, those plows have been replaced with rather large farm equipment that may be traveling not only the back roads, but the main highways too.

That's why the Jefferson County Farm Bureau held its annual Rural Road Safety Day at Fezell's County Market Tuesday to bring awareness to the need for caution.

For the full story, packed with lots of tips for safe driving in rural areas, see Thursday's print edition of The Spirit.
