Never Forget - This Sunday
will mark the 15th anniversary of one of the worst days in our nation’s
history. On Sept. 11, 2001, nearly 3,000 men and women were killed in
devastating terrorist attacks in New York, Virginia and Pennsylvania.
The loved ones lost will be honored
and remembered in observances across the country, including one at
Pennsylvania’s own Flight 93 Memorial, near the site where one of the
four planes hijacked that day crashed.
In addition to a luminaria service on Saturday and observance on Sunday,
the National Park Service, which operates the memorial, is also
offering a free distance learning event to students and teachers in
grades 6-12 called “Action to Honor.”
During the program, rangers from the
National Park Service will explain how the memorial honors the Flight
93 passengers and crew, share their story and explore the symbolism that
can be found throughout the site today.

DuBois Water Restrictions
- The Dubois Water Department is one of eight public water systems in
the state that has instituted voluntary and mandatory water
restrictions. The Department of Environmental Protection recommends the
following ways to reduce water use:
Run water only when
necessary. Avoid running the faucet while brushing your teeth or
shaving, or letting the shower run for several minutes before use;
Check for household leaks. A leaking toilet can waste up to 200 gallons of water each day!
Run dishwashers and washing machines only with full loads.
Replace older appliances
with high-efficiency, front-loading models that use about 30 percent
less water and 40 to 50 percent less energy.
Install low-flow plumbing fixtures and aerators on faucets.
Clearfield and Elk are among 38
counties that are under a drought watch declaration, which calls for a
voluntary 5 percent reduction in non-essential water use. One county,
Potter, remains in a drought warning. Citizens in that county are
encouraged to voluntarily reduce their water use between 10-15 percent.
