Summer love

Did you ever meet someone special at summer camp, at the beach, or in some other break-from-routine setting in the summer and a romance blossomed? And did it last, or did the sizzle fizzle with the change of seasons? We are doing a story about summer romances, whether they can continue, and how to make them last or let go. If you have a story to share, please contact Kellie Gormly at 412-320-7824 or kgormly@tribweb.com.

 

In-air tech: Do you like to stay connected or be left alone when you fly? A new study finds the percentage of airline passengers using smartphones, laptops and other personal electronics in-flight  has barely changed despite a new rule that allows them to stay powered up longer. How do you spent your time on flights — on your device or reading, sleeping or enjoying the travel bubble where no one can bother you. If you have an opinion, contact Rex Rutkoski at 724-226-4664 or rrutkoski@tribweb.com.
