No-Idling Standard for Buses Nets Praise

By Eric Harkreader

Excerpt: South Middleton’s school directors found themselves on the receiving end of a citizen advocacy group’s praises Monday night as it sought support for legislation to limit commercial truck exhaust.

‘(Superintendent Patricia Sanker) doesn’t mess around. She just says no idling and that’s that,’ said Winston Cleland, the treasurer of Clean Air Board of Central Pennsylvania and former superintendent of the West Perry School District.

Appearing along with Dr. Phil Carey, a pulmonary physician of 25 years with offices in Carlisle, Cleland thanked the district for its practice of shutting school buses off when they’re not in use.
