Fundraiser planned for Moon teacher injured in I-376 crash
Friends will hold a benefit fundraiser Dec. 1 for a Moon Area High School teacher who was severely injured in car crash last month.
Josh Prigorac, 27, of New Castle injured his head when his car slammed into the rear of a tractor-trailer on Interstate 376 in Lawrence County on Oct. 24, state police said. Prigorac started as a special education teacher for the district in August.
A spaghetti dinner will be held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Independence fire hall on School Road in Beaver County. The event will include entertainment and a Chinese auction. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children 10 and under. Children 2 and under can eat for free. For additional information, call 724-513-1016 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for tickets, which also can be purchased at the door.
Donations are being accepted at Clearview Federal Credit Union branches. Checks can be made out to the Josh Prigorac Fund.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments â either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
