On the “Watch List”: The Westmoreland County Prison Board. Bunking inmates in the women's gym this month and warnings from Warden John Walton last month that the prison was nearing capacity should prompt a plan on how the county intends to handle the prison's “fit.” This has been a recurring issue. Putting cots in a gym doesn't sound like much of a plan.

Laurel: To The Westmoreland Museum of American Art. A ground-breaking ceremony Friday marks the start of a major expansion that will include a new wing to be built on the North Maple Avenue side of the building. It's part of an ambitious $38 million campaign, for which $17.6 million already has been raised or pledged.

Laurel: To organizers of the Westmoreland Arts & Heritage Festival. The annual bonanza of arts and crafts (and food) at Twin Lakes Park did not disappoint with its many demonstrations, displays and public performances. Organizers put the crowd estimate at 150,000 — which shows that despite the weather's vagaries, this outdoor fest is as popular as ever.

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. Driving through floodwaters never is smart.
