Mt. Pleasant Community Yard Sale set for Saturday

| Tuesday, June 18, 2013, 6:42 p.m.

Mt. Pleasant Community Yard Sale will be held Saturday. Anyone interested in selling or buying should plan to hit the borough's streets for some great shopping and treasure hunting. The yard sale will be held throughout the town and will begin at 8 a.m. Maps of the street addresses of many of the families who are participating will be available at the Cat Committee booth that will be set up in the parking area behind Burn's Drug along Smithfield Street. This sale is a great way to get rid of unwanted clutter or find your latest treasure.

Although the crowd was small due to the imposing weather, last weekend's Concert in the Park was a nice event, with residents lined up for their turn at a ride in the fire truck or the Tower Truck. Thanks again to the borough for arranging the event.

The Geyer Performing Arts Center will hold auditions for the children's chorus of its August production of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” from 5 to 7 p.m. Monday.

Dreamcoat” will be presented Aug. 1-4 and 8-11. Not all children will necessarily be in all eight performances; details will be given after the show has been cast. The Geyer Performing Arts Center is located at 111 Pittsburgh St., Scottdale. If you have any questions, call 724-887-0887.

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.
