An online method of paying court fees using credit and debit cards is being called a success by court administrators who credit it with improving efficiency and contributing to higher collection levels.
According to the Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts (AOPC), any traffic tickets, court-ordered fines, costs, and restitution issued anywhere in Pa. can now be paid using the online E-Pay system. The system was expanded from Common Pleas courts to all magisterial courts, phased in between April 2010 and December 2011.
A sure sign of spring's arrival is seeing bunnies hopping about, as is the case at Bucktail Bunnies, a local rabbitry owned by Cindy Wingard of St. Marys.
Having been born on a farm, Wingard has raised rabbits since she was a child. Today her hobby has turned into a barn full of 30 rabbits which she breeds annually.
According to Wingard, she started her rabbit-raising hobby again after her two children, Amy and Travis, were grown.
