Back to School - Driver Safety Tips
With students returning to on-site education in the new school year, drivers should remember these rules of the road from the National Safety Council (nsc.org):
- Slow down to the posted speed limits in school zones, and be alert.
- School buses make frequent stops. Flashing lights mean get ready to stop.
- You must stop when the red lights are flashing on a bus, and no passing.
- Watch for students at crosswalks and obey crossing guards and traffic control devices.
- Pay attention on streets near schools.
- Distracted driving is a danger to everyone. Put away your devices, beverages, cosmetics and food while driving.
Monthly Water Conservation Tips - September
Conserve water when you wash your car. Clean your car using a hose with a nozzle so that you can easily shut off the water when you don’t need it. Better yet, use a bucket instead of a hose to save even more water. Or look for a commercial car wash that recycles water.
Put your dishwasher to work. Washing dishes by hand generally uses more water than a modern dishwasher. Scrape your plates instead of rinsing them and load it up! Just be sure to wait until you have a full load it run it.
We're plastic bags and plastic wrap. Please don't put us in the recycling bin.
That goes for all of us: the plastic shopping bags you get at restaurants and stores. The plastic bags for buying fruits and vegetables and the kind that zip-lock closed. Cling wrap and the packaging around your toilet paper and paper towels. None of us belong in your recycling bin.
Plastic bags and plastic wrap like us create big problems. We can end up as litter, impacting the environment. We also jam up the machines that sort recycling. Basically, we are trouble.
So the next time you're recycling at home or at work, don't recycle us. It's much better to throw us in the trash. It may feel wrong, but you’re protecting the environment by keeping us out of your recycling bin. Learn more and other tips about what to and what to not recycle at recycleornot.org.
Emergency Broadband Internet Cost Assistance
Having internet access at home is not a luxury anymore; it’s a necessity just like electricity and clean water—a fact which the pandemic has laid bare. Despite this critical need, access to the internet at home isn’t always affordable.
The Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) is a federal program created by Congress in the wake of the pandemic in order to make sure that everyone has the internet access necessary to live, work, and thrive in today’s America.
The Emergency Broadband Benefit provides eligible recipients with up to $50 a month for broadband service and up to $100 for a connected device. You can qualify for this discount regardless of your immigration status.
Find out if you qualify by calling (833) 511-0311 or visiting GetEmergencyBroadband.org.
