Alle-Kiski Tuesday takes
Show of support: If anyone doubts the Alle-Kiski Valley's support of veterans, we refer you to the 150 people who walked 10 miles in sweltering heat Saturday to complete the PA Hero Walk, the annual 320-mile trek supporting the Wounded Warrior Project.
Fresh looks: It seems “redding up” is the order of the day. In Jefferson, some senior citizens are seeking help to keep a local cemetery neat and tidy — something they've been doing single-handedly for too long. In Natrona, local kids are helping to complete mosaic sculptures in the town's newest park. And Kiski Area students are sprucing up a street or two each week in Vandergrift this summer — picking up trash and planting flowers.
Speaking of flowers ... : No one has gotten more flowers planted this year than second-grader Tyler Jaworskyj of Kiski Township. He asked neighbors along Edmon Road to plant flowers around their mailboxes. More than 30 have complied so far and Tyler has civic pride blooming along his street.
