Anderson to address vets
Care center plans Veterans Day observance
Greensburg Care Center at 119 Industrial Park Road has announced plans for its second annual Veterans Day observance to be held Nov. 12. Festivities will begin at 11:30 a.m. with a parade of veterans through the halls of the facility, followed by a program to honor the veterans in the activity lounge.
Guest speaker will be Charles W. Anderson, chairman of the Westmoreland County commissioners and a retired colonel of the U.S. Marines. Anderson graduated from Hempfield High School. He and his wife, Nancy, have three children and five grandchildren.
The program will include singing by vocalist Olivia Shultz and a reading by Joseph Pishko.
The varsity cheerleaders from Jeanette High School will also participate. Serving as master of ceremonies will be Eric Tepper, a former journalist from Latrobe and a former Derry Borough councilman.
Refreshments will be available in the activity lounge following the ceremony.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
