Lance: To Springdale Council. It hired ex-cop Mark Thom as summer help despite the facts that Thom was forced to leave the borough's police department and pleaded guilty to federal charges of abusing a prisoner in his custody. Thom is yet to be sentenced and may not be available to work anyway. A bad example has been set.

Laurel: To Apollo-Ridge officials and the teachers union. The district's new five-year pact with teachers provides modest raises in line with current economic realities and requires teachers to chip in for health care with deductibles and copayments — just like private-sector taxpayers have been doing for decades.

Laurel: To successful write-in candidates, particularly in communities where, otherwise, the May 21 primary would have been the final say in this year's local election process. Instead, there will be November contests in Apollo, Saxonburg, Leechburg and others.
