PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – It’s a cold morning at the bus stop today but it will be much colder on Friday. No one is watching those diving temperatures more than school superintendents who have to decide whether or not to cancel or adjust schools.

Hines has one priority in moments like this: the “safety of the children waiting for transportation.” She said that the general guideline is zero degrees but “If I say zero, then is that with or without windchill? The nuances continue from there.” Dr. Hines said she also has to weigh the impact on students should classes be canceled, using the word “stability.” “We just got our kids in a really solid routine and I hate to disrupt that … [Read more...] about Bitter Bus Stop Mornings: To Cancel, Delay, Or Keep School Open?

“News never stops” is a phrase often used in the journalism world. And it’s a phrase Tori Yorgey, a TV reporter for NBC affiliate WSAZ of Huntington, West Virginia, took to heart when she was suddenly struck by a car during a live shot, fell and bounced right back up to finish her report. The incident unfolded Wednesday evening as Yorgey was reporting at the scene of a water main break in Dunbar. In the clip, she is facing the camera when a car comes up from behind and strikes her in the back. Yorgey lurches forward shocked saying, “Oh my God. I just got by a car, but I’m okay!” and her camera topples to the ground. “You know that’s live TV for ya!" she says with a laugh. "It’s all good! I actually got hit by a car in college too just like that. I am so glad I’m okay!” Yorgey fixes the camera and lights and gracefully rebounds to finish her report on the water break.
