Connellsville Laurels & Lances

| Friday, Nov. 9, 2012, 8:55 p.m.

Laurel: To Perryopolis teen Joshua Potter. This young man, who is a cancer survivor, took on an Eagle Scout project to help others in need. He collected toys for Children's Hospital, the facility that helped him in his battle with cancer. Because of Joshua's hard work, youth who are suffering will benefit from his contributions.

Laurel: To all Fay-West residents who cast a vote on Tuesday. Whether your candidate of choice won or lost, you did your duty and let your voice be heard through the voting process. Voting is a precious right that should never be neglected.

Community support: The Tri-Town area is hosting a huge Veterans Day Gala Sunday in honor of area veterans as well as a way to raise funds for its expansion of a veterans' memorial honoring those who fought in the Vietnam and Korean wars. The gala is scheduled at the Vanderbilt Fire Hall. There will be food and entertainment. The Tri-Town Area Historical Society event will benefit its Mile Of Pennies campaign, which is raising money for an new honor roll in the center of Dawson. The honor roll will be designed similarly to the World War I and World War II honor rolls that are currently in place. It will be adorned with the names of Vietnam and Korean War veterans of Dawson and Lower Tyrone Township.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
