Remembering a Liberty resident

| Sunday, Feb. 17, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

Word has been received of the passing of former Liberty resident Alverda Roadman Duchek on Jan. 20 in Youngstown, Ohio. She was the daughter of the late James and Ruth Roadman, and had attended the former Dunbar Township Junior Senior High School. Our sympathy to her family and friends in our area.

Leisenring Presbyterian Church will hold the monthly food pantry on 8:30 until 10:30 a.m. Wednesday.

The Dawson-Vanderbilt Lions Club will hold a spaghetti dinner from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. March 3 at the Brownfield Community Center, located at 291 Banning Road, Dawson. Cost is $7 for adults and $3.50 for children ages 6 through 12. Children 5 and younger are served free.

The next meeting of the Tri-Town Community Crime Watch will be held on at 7 p.m. March 18 in the Vanderbilt Borough Building.

Community Connections, the parent training series sponsored by all Fayette County schools, will host its next meeting at 6 p.m. Feb. 26 at the Fayette County Behavioral Health Administration on Jacob Murphy Lane in Uniontown. This month's topic will be “Gifted Education: Definition of Terms and Paperwork, Guidelines of Identification and Gifted Programs; Addressing the Needs of Gifted Students.” Speakers will be Anne Peters, supervisor of special education, and Yolanda Pato, gifted teacher, both of Frazier School District. For more information please call 724-736-1109.

After a campaign of several years, the Dawson/Lower Tyrone Honor Roll project is rolling into its final phase, that of finalizing and approving all of the veterans names from the Korean, Vietnam and Cold War era and submitting them for casting in the bronze plaque. Although all costs are not met, the committee feels that upcoming fundraisers may cover the final costs. Since the project began several years ago, material costs have increased drastically. Hopefully, a dedication in spring or early summer will still be possible.

The Honor Roll Committee is selling a ticket to help raise funds. The tickets are $2 each and have both a winning amount and a bonus. Tickets are available at the following locations: Sweet Peas (Vanderbilt), Tri-Town Market, Bucks Dairy Store, John Prah's Barber shop (South Connellsville) or from any committee member. The committee is planning a program booklet that will accompany the dedication celebration of the new honor roll. Commercial or personal ads are available in the booklet, from 18 page to full-page ads. Ad space is available from any committee member. You may also honor or remember a loved one with a personal line or block space. Information is available from any committee member or by phoning 724-529-7298.

That's it for this week, friends.

If you have something that you want to see here, just give me a call at 724-529-7927, send me an email at, or drop me a line at 276 Banning Road, Dawson, PA 15428.

Beth Lynn is a resident of Dawson.

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.
