Veterans recognized by Carnegie council on their day

| Wednesday, Nov. 13, 2013, 9:01 p.m.

Given that the Carnegie Borough Council voting meeting fell on Veterans Day Monday, council took the opportunity to invite members of the local Veterans of Foreign Wars and American Legion posts to be recognized prior to the voting motions.

“Nobody does a better job of making sure our veterans are never forgotten than these two organizations,” Carnegie Mayor Jack Kobistek said.

The mayor read a proclamation recognizing the two organizations, and council presented their leaders with certificates of appreciation. He said the organizations help organize the Memorial Day parade, serve dinners at the VA hospital and participate in flag services.

“It is an honor to honor these two organizations,” he said.

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.
