Finishing touches on water tower to cost Sharpsburg $6K

| Wednesday, June 26, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

The final step of painting the water tower in Sharpsburg will cost about $6,000.

Crews will paint “Sharpsburg” on both sides of the tower in white lettering against the blue tower. The colors are the colors of the former Sharpsburg High School.

The tower also was cleaned earlier this year.

Library fundraiser

A fundraiser for the Sharpsburg Community Library has been rescheduled for Sept. 22 at LeMont on Pittsburgh's Mt. Washington.

The event had been scheduled for next month, but more time was needed for planning. The event will be from 1 to 5 p.m.

Other fundraisers for the library, which is preparing for an expansion, are planned for later in the year.

Toy bash

Sharpsburg will make a $100 donation to the Seneca Area Emergency Services' inaugural toy bash.

The event is scheduled for later this year.

Baseball donation

The Sharpsburg Baseball Association will receive $750 from the borough.

Association officials plan to use the money to purchase a scoreboard.

Street sweeping

Street sweeping in the borough is back on track.

Councilman Lou DeLuca said some streets were not swept after a problem with the street sweeper.

Those repairs have been made.

Street sweeping takes place the first and third Mondays and Wednesdays of each month through Nov. 20.

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.
