On the “Watch List”: Heights Plaza reconstruction. A lot of handicapped people shop at the supermarket at the plaza and the hazardous conditions inherent in rebuilding the center after its devastating fire last year could be lethal for them. A man in a wheelchair who lives at the Harrison Hi-Rise next door got clipped by a tractor-trailer this week because the sidewalk he normally would use is closed. We hope the plaza's owner, in conjunction with the contractors and township police, can develop a safety plan.

Lance: To the American Lung Association. It continues to slander Greater Pittsburgh as having some of the nation's worst air pollution. That's because it continues to employ a bogus measuring methodology. It would comical if the scientific malpractice weren't so egregious.

RIP: Jeff Malak. We live in an age when it seems only the powerful, the famous or the infamous will be remembered. It's refreshing and inspiring to see a simple man remembered first and foremost for his kindness to all. Malak, 48, of New Kensington, who died Sunday, will be well-remembered by those who knew him as the car wash attendant at the Giant Eagle GetGo station in New Ken.
