Go vote: Roughly 20 to 25 percent of those eligible to vote will show up at the polls today. Those few people may well decide who is responsible for educating your children, paving your streets and generally affecting your life daily. Think your vote matters little? Think again. In 2009, four significant local races were decided by 10 votes or fewer.
Ready, set, launch!: Just in time for the Memorial Day weekend, it's National Safe Boating Week. And for the many Alle-Kiski Valley recreational boaters putting in for the first time this weekend, it's a great opportunity to run down the Coast Guard checklist of safe-boating practices. Among the most common violations — malfunctioning lights and life vests still wrapped in plastic. Enjoy the water — safely.
Sominex Syndrome: That seems to be what hit the Pittsburgh Penguins in the third game of their Stanley Cup series with the Ottawa Senators. The Pens were ready to go up three games to none in the best-of-seven series — just under 90 seconds remained, they led 1-0, and they were a man up on a power play. Then the Senators caught the Pens popping Sominex tablets, tied it up and went on to win 2-1 in double overtime. Game four is Wednesday night in Ottawa. Might we suggest a power drink or two?
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
