Every year at this time, traffic inevitably seems to get a little bit heavier as those bright yellow school buses start their daily routes. It’s easy to get frustrated if you are behind a school bus as it makes a dozen stops to pick up students—especially if you are already running late. But adding a few minutes to your commute is certainly a small price to pay for the safety of the more than 1.5 million students transported daily in Pennsylvania.
The Ephrata Police Dept. is a PA MedReturn location The goal is to help fight prescription drug abuse, especially among children and teenagers who often resort to unused or expired medications. Residents may dispose of unused prescription medications by depositing them in the blue box located in the lobby of the Ephrata Police Station.
The box will accept: prescription and over-the-counter solid medications (tablets and capsules); and pet medications.
FROM THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY'S OFFICE:
Quarantine with family members does not mean that family and intimate partner crimes of violence or sexual abuse will not be investigated. If you or a member of your family are in danger, call for help. We recommend that you call the police, but if you don’t feel safe enough to do that now, there are agencies who can help.
