Lance: To challenged motorists. When the skies opened up early Wednesday and dumped a monsoon on Greater Pittsburgh, some motorists thought they could plow through the floodwaters. They learned the hard way. Worse, some even removed barricades set up by public safety officials to prevent such folly. Driving through floodwaters never is smart.

Laurel: To the PWSA. The Pittsburgh Water & Sewer Authority has extended, for 18 months, the contract of Veolia Water North America, its private management firm. And with excellent reason. Over the past year, Veolia is credited with cost savings and new revenue of $3 million. That helped to hold the line on customer rates. This is an experiment that's proving itself. Make it a permanent arrangement and we'll offer a hearty Hear! Hear!

On the “Watch List”: Pittsburgh Brewing Co. The maker of the iconic Iron City Beer has a new CEO. And Brian Walsh says he's planning an aggressive marketing campaign in an attempt to return the local suds to its onetime glory. Iron City and IC Light are brewed in Latrobe these days. Who knows, pumping an Iron (or two) might soon be back in vogue.
