An eight-hour AARP driver safety class in Roane County next month offers area senior citizens a refresher course on driving and an update on rules of the road.
The new two-day AARP Smart Driver course will be from noon to 4 p.m. Aug. 18-19 in Kingston Community Center.
The course has been updated from those previously taught.
Course participants will be taught to adjust to age-related physical changes; reduce incidents of violations and accidents; and update driving skills and rules of the road in a stress-free environment.
In carrying out its mission of encouraging informed and active participation in government and in preparation for the Aug. 7 Roane County General Election, the Oak Ridge League of Woman Voters will have a candidate forum next week.

Steve Arney and Eugene Martin of Harriman Care and Rehabilitation Center recently traveled by plane to Panama City Beach, Fla., for three days of fun and adventure on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico.
The men were among a group of Signature Healthcare residents who spent a vacation enjoying nightly music and movies by the pool of their resort, dinners out, time on the beach, parasailing and a trip to Gulf World.
