Sharpsburg residents can name boat ramp

| Wednesday, May 22, 2013, 9:11 p.m.

Sharpsburg residents can play a role in naming the 13th Street boat ramp.

Suggestions will be collected at the annual Guyasuta Days Festival this summer.

Council then will decide the winner.

A prize will be awarded to the winning suggestion.

Library

Sharpsburg is planning a fundraiser for the Sharpsburg Community Library on July 14 at the LeMont in Mt. Washington.

The event will be from 1 to 5 p.m. Details still are being finalized.

Officials are hoping for support from residents and local businesses.

Other fundraisers for the library, which is planning an expansion, will be held later in the year.

Donation

The Guyasuta Days Festival committee has made a $2,000 donation to the borough.

The money will be used for upkeep at Kennedy Park in Sharpsburg, which is the site for the annual event.

The festival committee donates money to various organizations each year.

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.
