The latest of Pennsylvania’s REAL ID rollout

Following the events of Sept. 11, 2001, the federal government put into action a more secure form of identification, known as REAL ID, for Americans seeking to fly domestically and/or enter certain federal buildings.

Full implementation of the new requirements will go into effect Oct. 1, 2020.

Although Pennsylvania is among the last of the states to make REAL ID available, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is preparing to offer the new identification starting in March 2019.

Chosen Words

Thursday, September 20, 2018 by The Press in Opinion

It Couldn’t Hurt

If you know someone

Who is down and out,

And is flailing all about,

Give them a call

To say hello,

It Couldn’t Hurt.

If you know of a neighbor

Who could use a hand,

Or who needs someone to care;

Pay them a visit

And give them a hug,

It Couldn’t Hurt.

If ever you get in a situation where

You are lonely, and hoping for someone to care,

Simply fold your hands and say a prayer,

It Couldn’t Hurt.
