Phase one of the Brentwood Park renovations will begin after the July 4th celebrations.

The construction work includes basketball courts, baseball fields and a dek hockey rink, council members said on Tuesday night.

The new picnic tables and umbrellas are now up on the civic center porch.

Officials are financing an estimated $8 million renovation of the park off of Brownsville Road.

In other business:

• Volunteers are needed for the Fourth of July celebration to stuff packets and fold T-shirts.

Participants can go to the library community room on Friday at 10 a.m. and noon to 8 p.m. or Saturday and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m.

Organizers also are looking for World War II veterans to ride in the parade, which is scheduled for 10 a.m. on July 4 on Brownsville Road.

Those interested can call Dave Buechel at 412-310-744.

• Central Blood Bank will host a blood drive on Friday in the Brentwood Library community room from noon to 6 p.m.

All donors will receive two Pirates tickets in the mail.

Appointments can be made at www.centralbloodbank.org.

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.
