The boys team zero in on the girls during a summer snowball battle on the Sewickley Public Library lawn Friday, July 19, 2013. The 'snowballs' were made of corn starch and shaving cream.

The thermometer might have reached 90 degrees last week, but children managed to hold a snowball fight at the Sewickley Public Library. The snowballs — made of corn starch and shaving cream — was hosted by the library's teen department.

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.
