New owner

The business handles apparel for schools, corporations, organizations, businesses and sports teams. A family-based business, it has recently expanded its specialty department headed by Gracie's sister, Debbie Kokel, who is marketing the store's rhinestone line.

Renewed interest

Joann Diegelmann is an up-and-coming artist from Carnegie's Cloverleaf Estates.

Retired and widowed after 35 years of marriage, she has renewed her interest in painting and working with embellished acrylic giclee prints. Giclee is French for “to spray or squirt” and refers to the process of how a faint image of the picture is printed out with the aid of a digital printer and is then embellished in paint. She is doing many of these pictures of animals from the Pittsburgh Zoo. She also is showing her work at several local arts and crafts shows.

Botanic Garden

Set to open in late spring or early summer is the Pittsburgh Botanic Garden, Collier Township, near Settlers Cabin Park. The first phase of 60 acres will be open to the public soon, with a goal to create a world-class botanic garden that, at 460 acres when completed, will be one of the largest botanic gardens in America. The site is located over acres of abandoned coal mines.

When fully developed, the garden will have 18 distinct gardens, five different woodlands, a visitor center, an amphitheater for cultural events, a center for botanic research, and a space for weddings and corporate meetings. Preview tours are being given now.

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.
