On the "Watch List": The Seven Dolors Parish probe. The investigation into the South Huntingdon Catholic church's accounts (one established outside the Greensburg Dioceses' policies) and news that its pastor, the Rev. Emil S. Payer, 66, is on administrative leave are especially disturbing. If parish money is missing, then the full "penance" provided by law should be swiftly administered.

Laurel: To a flood of volunteer aid. The Greensburg Volunteer Fire Department's dive team joined rescuers locally and from around the commonwealth in response to Irene's wrath in Eastern Pennsylvania. Large or small, these extra efforts on behalf of the public's safety deserve recognition.

Lance: To a contemptible contractor. Allegedly ripping off two rural churches for thousands of dollars in undone roof work is an abomination. Any prayers offered by the congregations for Jason Diirner, incarcerated in Cambria County Prison, should be that he repays every penny of what's reportedly owed.

Lance: To Elaine Weimer. The Connellsville grandma who fled a Wal-Mart, leaving her grandchild, 8, holding a bag of stolen goods, has been credited with time served and paroled. How fortunate for her. The inexcusable injustice to her granddaughter, however, won't be so easily corrected.
