Greensburg Tuesday takes
Kristina Quigley, R.I.P.: The death of the Seton Hill University lacrosse coach, 30, and her unborn child in a bus accident Saturday while en route to a match in Millersville, Pa., is a painful reminder of just how fragile life is and how, in an instant, everything changes. In tragedy's aftermath, it's obvious that this young mother, youthful and vibrant, touched so many other lives. May she rest in peace.
The show won't go on: It's official. The Westmoreland County Airport Authority has put the kibosh on next month's air show after the Air Force canceled the remainder of its Thunderbirds' aerial performances this year because of the dastardly sequester. We suppose finding another show headliner or pressing on with events that had been scheduled — rather than pulling the plug on the heels of the Air Force announcement — was simply out of the question. Whatever happened to the can-do spirit and determination that propelled the first pilots into the wild blue yonder?
Actions have consequences: That's the sobering takeaway from two Steubenville, Ohio, high school football players being convicted (found “delinquent” in juvenile court jargon) of raping a Weirton, W.Va., teen girl in a series of drunken escapades. And other alleged actions could have even more widespread consequences: A grand jury next month will begin investigating if there was a cover-up by adults.
