FACTORYVILLE — For the first time in six months, John Yanniello stood in front of a classroom full of children.

Unlike most area students, those at Lackawanna Trail will be in their classroom five days a week — spaced at least several feet apart and wearing masks.

On Thursday, Yanniello met the fourth graders in his math class. He also positioned a stand with his laptop so that other students, whose parents chose a virtual option, could see the math class, too.

Staying apart, Lackawanna Trail students came together for the first day of an unprecedented school year.

derry wae

The days are steadily getting shorter and we’re heading into the colder seasons. For me, that conjures images of warm beverages and comfort food. So I’ve put together this list of awesome smart home products for the fall, ranging from the Oxo Brew 8-Cup Coffee Maker to the Philips Hue Lily Outdoor Spot Light — and several other favorites. 

Of course, all of these gadgets are great year-round, but they’re especially nice to have when it’s cold outside.

Coffee is great any time, but a warm beverage can come in particularly handy during those chilly fall mornings when it’s still dark outside and you need to get going.
