Thumbs up: To area road crews that got out late Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning to clear away snow and combat ice. From PennDOT workers to municipal units, they kept us moving and safe. Also to crews that made sure the power stayed on despite conditions.
Thumbs down: To a second female pedestrian being grabbed by someone jumping from a vehicle in the State College area. A woman told police she was confronted Saturday on Allen Street. A Penn State student said she was abducted on campus a week earlier but escaped.
Thumbs up: To Penn State’s new policy that Bangladesh companies that make licensed university gear must sign a contract pledging to keep their workers safe. A building collapse there last year killed 1,100 workers. The policy also bans items made in sweatshops.
