JST DRV service announcements

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about the “JST DRV” initiative by the Central PA Chamber of Commerce, which aims to crack down on distracted driving by using cool thumb bands and a catchy slogan.

The kids in the Building Leaders for the Susquehanna Valley helped with the initiative and they made public service announcements to launch the program featuring themselves and some other local faces.

Here are the results.

This first one is an explanation of the JST DRV philosophy, featuring BLSV advisor Jess Shaffer and his Jeep:

The next is a “pull over” featuring a real PSP Trooper:

Pretty cool stuff, especially for high school kids just trying to make a difference.

Holidays away from home

I may be spending the holiday in the office, but at least I get to go home at the end of my shift and see my family. For some people, that’s not an option.

Today in the Daily Item, is the story of families who are dealing with family members deployed overseas.

Sunday night, I visited with the Laubachs, whose son Bryan is on his fifth holiday deployment. Bryan’s father, Murray, was proud to show the military photo of his son showing Bryan’s military service ribbons:

Bryan is a National Guardsman serving in Kuwait and has been in the military for about 25 years, his mother said.

Bryan’s dedication, and the dedication of all our military men and women, is something to think about this holiday.

Have a Merry, Merry Christmas everybody!
