Here's what's trending for March 2.

State Senator Lindsay Williams is proposing legislation that would bar the state from allowing new cyber schools to open. The Democrat from Allegheny says the state should put the brakes on new cyber schools until the legislature passes reforms to laws for them. Governor Josh Shapiro has called for lawmakers to pass legislation setting a single statewide tuition rate of eight-thousand-dollars at such schools. Currently, tuition varies by district and in some cases tops 25-thousand-dollars per student.

An Amish man who has an organic dairy farm near Lancaster is suing the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture. Attorneys for Amos Miller say he's challenging material presented in Lancaster County Court that was the basis for a raid on his farm. But officials say Miller's products have led to illnesses in at least two states. When he was asked about people sickened by his farm's milk, Miller said, "They just need to stay tuned with nature."

New Jersey's state parks are hiring ahead of peak spring and summer seasons. The state has begun accepting applications for more than 800 peak-season part-time jobs throughout state parks, forests and historic sites. Available seasonal part-time opportunities include lifeguards, naturalists, history educators, general maintenance workers and office staff. Students and teachers whose availability may be limited to weekends are also encouraged to apply because there may be flexibility for some work shifts, and salary rates for all jobs have been increased for this year.

New Jersey ranks Number One for students who save money by attending a community college and then transfer to a four-year college. A new report shows 21 percent of students who transfer from community colleges to four-year colleges earn a bachelor's degree. Illinois and Maryland come in second. It's recommended that students who plan to follow this route take part in dual enrollment programs that let them take college courses while in high school.
