Better recreation: A study into the operations of the Ligonier Valley YMCA and the Latrobe-Unity Parks and Recreation Commission, with an eye toward possible joint ventures and cost savings, makes considerable sense. It is unfortunate, however, that past disagreements have led to Unity's decision to withdraw from the commission in December 2014 (which has no connection to the aforementioned study). So much more could be realized if neighboring locales put residents' interests first instead of provincial squabbles.

The “cost” of teacher training: Greensburg Salem school directors are rightly concerned about teacher training days that cut into classroom instruction. But — perish the thought! — it's out of the question to ask all teachers (participation must be 100 percent) to use their free time for job training, which is not exactly uncommon in the private sector. Here's an opportunity for teachers to step up.

Pipeline pains: While some North Huntingdon residents are breathing a sigh of relief over a decision to reroute a liquid-gas pipeline away from their homes, the larger issue persists: With the boom in natural gas drilling throughout the region, where do new pipelines go? Once-rural areas of Western Pennsylvania are today's subdivisions. And pipeline companies aren't always going to have the rerouting option. Any lingering questions over the safety of these pipelines must be resolved.
