A big thanks to everyone who made the Connellsville/Scottdale Salvation Army office (300 W. Crawford Ave.) open house such a success on Oct. 1. This office has been in existence for a year. The volunteers were wonderful as usual and all those who were interested, all I can say is thank you.

A special thank you to Maria Nascimben for creating the beautiful fall wreath which was given as a door prize. Thank you to Doris Rizza for the poster illustrations of the many projects the Salvation Army has been involved in. If you need Salvation Army assistance, call 724-628-2010.

In an effort to help local families in need, volunteers are needed to man kettles in two-hour shifts (or more) for the Connellsville/Scottdale Salvation Army Service Center when its Red Kettle campaign kicks off Nov. 29 and will run through Dec. 24.

Volunteers are needed to man kettles at the following locations:

• Mt. Pleasant Wal-Mart, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.

• Mt. Pleasant Kmart, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays.

Groups, organizations, families or individuals interested may call kettle chairwoman Maria Nascimben at 724-984-5487 or email at on or before Nov. 18 to schedule date, time and location.

Sympathy goes out to the Joseph Coppetti family on the loss of Janet Roth Coppetti. Her love for her family and friends was always first and politics followed. She was a Democratic committeewoman for the 4th Ward and judge of elections in the 4th Ward polling location. She will be missed by everyone who knew her.

Deepest sympathy to the family of Laura Levendowski, who was an avid volunteer for the Scottdale Salvation Army Unit, especially for the ringing of the bells for Christmas in July. She will be missed.

Readers, please take time out of your busy schedule to go and vote.

Enjoy our beautiful autumn weather.

Patricia Walker is a Scottdale resident.

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.
