Lady Gaga House Hunting in Pennsylvania?

News broke back in September that Lady Gaga and “The Vampire Diaries” actor Taylor Kinney were the hot new item in Hollywood after meeting on the set of her “You and I” video. Now the pair have reportedly been spotted around Kinney’s home of Lancaster County, Penn. – and maybe checking out local real estate?

WHP TV, a local news station, says sources tell them Gaga has been spotted looking at the Oak Hill Road home, a 6000-square foot mansion on the mark for just under $1.7 million, which is located within the gated community of Bent Creek in Manheim Township (pictured, inset).

Gaga and Kinney have been spotted in Lancaster County several times recently – at local bars, restaurants and a food store in Lititz. Rumors are also running rampant on Facebook that Gaga has already purchased a home in the area. Local real estate agent Marilyn Berger tells the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that so far, it’s all just rumors.

“We hear that she may buy a house around here. I know other Realtors who handle higher-end houses, and they haven’t talked to her either. But if she’s looking for a house, I’d be more than happy to help her,” says Berger.

Winds could be hazardous today; some snow Monday?

The National Weather Service has issued hazardous weather outlooks for Southeastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware for wind gusts of up to 40 mph, which could topple branches and bring down power lines. The latest forecast in the meantime says there’s a chance of rain and snow showers Monday. The high today is expected be near 44 under mostly sunny skies, but west winds between 18 and 25 mph will make it feel colder.

The winds will begin to die down tonight with the mercury dipping to 26, the NWS says. Looking ahead, there’s a slight chance of showers Thursday night and Friday, but it will be partly cloudy with a low around 35 for New Year’s Eve celebrations Saturday night. For New Year’s Day, the forecast is predicting partly sunny skies with a high near 51. The chance of precipitation returns Sunday night in form of rain followed on Monday with a 30 percent chance of rain and snow showers. But with a predicted high of 45, whatever snow that might fall Monday won’t stick for long. The forecast for Tuesday calls for partly sunny skies with a high near 37.

Teen drivers face new limits Tuesday in Pennsylvania

Roadsign - Seatbelt

New restrictions for teen drivers in Pennsylvania take effect at 12:01 a.m. Tuesday, not Saturday, as previously reported. “Due to a calculation error, the effective date was incorrectly reported as Dec. 24 in a Dec. 19 PennDOT news release,” an agency update states.

As of Tuesday, 16- and 17-year-old drivers will need more training, they’ll be allowed to transport fewer passengers, and not wearing a seat belt will be enough for a teen driver to get pulled over. Even their teen passengers will have to buckle up. For older drivers, failure to wear a seat belt remains a secondary offense – subject to a fine if stopped for another reason.

Permit holders under 18 will need 65 hours of hands-on training, an increase of 15 hours. “Ten of the additional hours must include driving at night and five hours must occur during poor weather conditions,” according to a news release from the state.

The number of non-family passengers under age 18 is also restricted for drivers under 18, if no parent or guardian is present. It’s just one such passenger for the first six months after getting a junior license, which is possible at age 16-1/2. Then, until the driver turns 18, it’s three passengers – if the driver has a record free of committing violations and even partly causing crashes.

Winter advice from AAA. Speaking of young drivers, AAA Mid-Atlantic has some advice for parents: Help teen learn to handle winter driving. After a snowfall, parents should “take their teenage drivers to a big empty parking lot or open space and let him or her try stopping, starting and turning as safe speeds in a safe environment.” AAA also recommends reviewing the list of do’s and dont’s of winter driving, such as fully clear the vehicle of ice and snow, go slower, stay back, keep to major roads, avoid slamming brakes, avoid changing lanes, and don’t use cruise control.
