| Saturday, Jan. 20, 2007

KITTANNING -- Borough police are attempting to collect between $10,000 and $12,000 in outstanding parking fines, said police Chief Ed Cassesse.

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.
