    Woman unknowingly becomes getaway driver

    CORAOPOLIS, Pa. - An elderly woman unknowingly gave a bank robber a lift, according to the woman and police.

    Juanita Bland, 75, was stopped near a post office in Coraopolis shortly before noon Monday when the electric sliding door of her minivan became stuck. The van is equipped with a motorized door and ramp for her wheelchair.

    "I couldn't get out of the van, so I waited a few moments hoping somebody would walk by who might be able to help," said Bland.

    "Then I saw this fellow walking my way, so I beckoned him over and asked if he could please help with the door."
    The man, according to police, had just robbed a PNC Bank branch.

    The man slid the door closed, and then got into the passenger seat and asked for a ride, Bland said.

    "He didn't seem threatening or anything, so I said 'OK' and drove off," she said. He exited a few blocks later, got into a white sedan and drove off.

    Bland said a friend called her concerned that she had been abducted because another acquaintance heard on a police scanner that the suspect had gotten into her van.

    "When I think back now of what could have happened, I feel blessed that I'm OK," Bland said.

    A Smile

    A smile cost nothing, but gives so much.

    It enriches those who receive it,
    without making poorer those who give.
    It takes but a moment, but the memory
    of it sometimes lasts forever.

    None is so rich or mighty that he
    can get along without it,
    and none is so poor but that
    he can be made rich by it.

    A smile creates happiness in the home,
    fosters goodwill in business,
    and is the countersign of friendship.

    It brings rest to the weary,
    cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,
    and it is nature's best antidote for trouble.

    Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed,
    or stolen, for it is something that is of no
    value to anyone until it is given away.

    Some people are too tired to give you a smile.
    Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile
    so much as he who has no more to give.
