Lance: To Chuck Pascal. The Leechburg attorney and longtime political operative is running for three — three — offices in next week's primary election: mayor, borough council and school board. State law prevents Pascal from serving in more than one. Our recommendation: Go to the polls on Tuesday and do not vote for this political mountebank for any office.

Laurel: To citizen involvement. Thanks to help from the public, New Kensington police captured a bank robbery suspect seven minutes after the First Niagara in Parnassus was held up last week. He escaped on foot and changed clothes in a yard, and people were calling the cops all along the way.

Good advice: Last week, a New Kensington family thankfully escaped with their lives in a fire at their rented house. But they lost all of their belongings. Making matters worse, they had no insurance. This should be a warning signal to all who rent – get renter's insurance. It's cheap and made even more affordable when bundled with auto coverage. Most homeowners, in particular those with mortgages, carry insurance. There's no reason for renters not to have coverage on their belongings.

Good luck: To Jim Budzilek. The Leechburg Area superintendent of schools overcame most of the problems that face tiny districts and strove to provide his students with the best education possible. We believe he'll do great as Mars Area's next superintendent.
