Bucks County Conservation District offering FREE Stormwater Workshop

On Saturday, October 28th at 10 AM, the Bucks County Conservation District will host a stormwater management workshop for Lower Bucks County residents.   This workshop is at the Central Park Pavillion, Byberry Road, in Bensalem Township.

With rainfall on the rise, the region has witnessed an uptick in stormwater runoff.  the runoff has led to increased pollution and flooding concerns.  This workshop intends to address these challenges by offering participants insights on various tools and techniques to enhance water quality and diminish the amount of water runoff from their homes and workplaces.  In addition, attendees will have the chance to participate in raffles and walk away with giveaways.

Back to School & School Bus Safety

It’s time to go back to school already and that means school buses are on the roads again.

Pennsylvania law requires motorists to stop at least 10 feet away from school buses when their red lights are flashing and their stop arm is extended.  Motorists following or traveling alongside a school bus must also stop until the red lights have stopped flashing, the stop arm is withdrawn, and all children have reached safety.  Read more about school bus safety here.

Penalties for failure to obey school bus safety laws can result in a $250 fine, five points on a driving record and a 60-day license suspension.

Lower Southampton Youth Legion 16U Team Goes to State Tournament

Lower Southampton Youth Legion 16U Team was the first Lower South Legion Team to ever play in the state tournament.

Here’s some highlights of their AMAZING season:

  • 15-5 regular season earning #1 seed in the playoffs
  • Won the winner take all championship game 1-0 against Falls to advance to the regional tournament in Berwick, PA
  • 3-2 in the regional tournament earning a birth in the state tournament also in Berwick, PA
  • First Lower Southampton Jr or Sr American Legion Baseball team ever to advance to the state tournament
  • The state tournament had teams from the east and west playing for the state title.
  • Had an amazing showing finishing 3rd.  Only losses were to the eventual winner Upper Perk and runner up Penn Trafford

This team went into the regional and state tournament short-handed due to vacations and came together to play the best baseball they had played all year.  It was a true team effort, as contributions came from everyone on the team, up and down the line up.
