Remembering Our Heroes
Monday, May 28, is Memorial Day, honoring the men and women who have sacrificed their lives serving in our nation’s military. More than 1.1 million Americans have died in wars in which the United States entered, including nearly 500,000 in the Civil War and 405,000 in World War II.

Please consider joining me at the VFW Post 33’s service at 11 a.m., at Westmoreland Memorial Park, located along West Newton Road, Greensburg, or consider participating in Memorial Day events in your community.

Fish for Free on Sunday
Anglers fishing in Pennsylvania’s waterways this weekend are encouraged to take advantage of the annual Fish for Free Day on Sunday, May 27. As part of this program from the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC), anyone (resident or non-resident) can legally fish on all Pennsylvania waterways without a license. All other fishing regulations will still apply.

To make the fishing experience more convenient on the Fish-for-Free days, people can borrow equipment from dozens of fishing tackle loaner sites across the state. Many of the sites are right at state parks, which are always a popular place for visitors during the Memorial Day weekend. Loaner sites are also available at county parks and some public libraries. Click here for the list of loaner sites.

This is the first of two dates set by the PFBC to enhance fishing opportunities. The next day is Independence Day, Wednesday, July 4.

Traveling Over Memorial Day? Check Traffic Conditions on
Travelers can log onto to check current traffic impacts from construction, traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 770 traffic cameras. The service is free and available 24 hours a day.

511PA is also available through a smartphone application for iPhone and Android devices, by calling 5-1-1, or by following regional Twitter alerts accessible on the 511PA website.

Travelers are always reminded to buckle up, put their phones away and stay sober when behind the wheel.

In other PennDOT news, driver license and photo centers will be closed Saturday, May 26, through Monday, May 28, for the holiday. Customers may still obtain a variety of driver and vehicle products and services online through PennDOT’s Driver and Vehicle Services website,
