Nominations welcome for Sewickley Herald honors

| Wednesday, Feb. 19, 2014, 9:00 p.m.

The Sewickley Herald is accepting nominations for the newspaper's Man, Woman and Citizen of the Year honors.

From now until March 14, we'll look for your recommendations of those who have given unselfishly to the Sewickley Valley community.

Send us a few paragraphs detailing the achievements of that someone special.

Include your name, phone number and email address so we can learn more about your choices.

Letters can be sent to Editor Mya Koch, 504 Beaver St., Sewickley, PA 15143 or emailed to her at mkoch@tribweb.com.

Honorees will be named in the March 27 edition of the Sewickley Herald.

On April 25, the Herald will host its annual honors dinner, when the community gathers to salute a new set of honorees.

From the beginning 38 years ago, B.G. Shields, then-editor of the Herald, established the event to honor select individuals who had contributed above and beyond, in quiet ways or on the public stage, as documented in the pages of the paper.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
