Laurel: To more computer reuse. Goodwill of Southwestern Pennsylvania has overcome inability to meet demand, which forced a halt to its sales of donated, refurbished, $199.99 “Good-to-Go Computer” systems about 18 months ago. Now, the program's back, providing high-tech bargains, helping fund Goodwill job training and education and keeping heavy metals out of landfills. And with state law banning landfill disposal of computers and related items as of Jan. 24, and new computers sure to be under many Christmas trees, its return is well timed indeed.

On the “Watch List”:

• The Tarentum branch of the Allegheny Valley Library. The building housing the library has gone on the sales block. We hope any transaction goes smoothly and the new owner is amenable to keeping the library there on Lock Street, where it's close to lots of residents and has nearby parking.

• Springdale Township's one-man road “crew.” The commissioners have a decision to make: Is there or is there not enough work for two employees? If yes, hire someone. If no, contract with a neighboring municipality for the work. We can't believe the township's insurance company has allowed this.
