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.
TribLive commenting policy
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 â 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.
