Fundraiser solidifies Aspinwall baseball, softball finances

| Wednesday, April 17, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

The Aspinwall Baseball and Softball associations won't need financial help from the borough.

Officials had considered making a contribution to the organization after former member Susan Sundo was accused of misusing a debit card to make more than $4,800 worth of charges.

She was charged with theft last month and faces a preliminary hearing in June.

Councilman Jim Donahoe said a fundraiser held earlier this month helped the group and assistance from the borough is not needed.

“Their finances are pretty much taken care of,” Donahoe said.

Donahoe said the group plans to make its finances more transparent.

He said he will be one of two people who signs checks for the organization.

Next meeting

The next council meeting is scheduled for May 1 at 7 p.m. Meetings are held at the borough building on Commercial Avenue.

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.
