A look at what's happening and what's coming up in Western Pennsylvania.

Chase policy

The deaths of three people after a police chase in North Versailles have stoked criticisms that it isn't worth risking lives to chase a suspect police know and might be able to arrest peacefully later.

Recount requests

Allegheny County delayed certifying its Nov. 8 election results so officials can review requests filed Monday seeking a recount of the presidential and U.S. Senate voting results .

Teen shot

The shooting death of 16-year-old junior firefighter Parker Hess has left the small Fayette County community of Republic reeling and waiting for answers.

Going flat

For some breast cancer survivors like Indiana County's Amanda Marshall, r econstruction isn't part of their plans .

Fighting for reps

Bud Dupree's return to the Steelers defense is testing the coaching staff's skills , as they try to fit five outside linebackers into four spots with only two on the field at one time.


The temperatures will be warmer today, although we'll see some showers. The high should be 64 with a low of 49 , according to WPXI.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
