Hughesville locals

By Staff | Mar 13, 2012

If you get caught texting while driving be prepared to fork over $50! The new anti-texting law went into effect last Thursday. It is now illegal to text while driving. You’d think that would be common sense! According to AAA sending or reading a text takes your eyes off the road for 4.6 seconds. At 55 miles per hour, that’s like driving the length of an entire football field, blindfolded. As the mother of a soon-to-be-driving 16 year old I am very thankful for this new law. No text message is that urgent and is certainly not worth a human life.

It’s beginning to look a lot like tax time!! Income tax forms and instructions are available at the Hughesville library during library hours. There are also many new additions to the “bring one, take one” puzzle table. Plus, there are some new books in Large Type. Come check them out.

Meagan Murray is having her annual Hoss’s Community Night on Thursday, March 22 for “Meagan’s Box” Foundation, a charity that provides Christmas gifts to local children in need. Anyone who would like to go and have dinner can get a ticket/coupon by sending Meagan an email at megarita422@gmail.com. The tickets will also be available at local businesses.
