No justice, closure: Today marks the 20th anniversary of the murder of Stephanie Coyle in her Arnold home. Despite a concerted police investigation and her family's efforts to keep the crime in the public eye, no solid suspect has ever been found. The family has upped its reward to $90,000. We hope it helps.

Hate vandalism: Stupid high school bullying has apparently grown into even stupider vandalism for a Buffalo Township family, culminating last week in a swastika being chemically burned into their lawn. We hope the cops catch this idiot and the courts hand down a tough sentence.

Is there a plan?: The Westmoreland County Prison Board should be developing a solution to bunking inmates in the women's gym a month after Warden John Walton warned that the prison was nearing capacity. Putting cots in a gym doesn't sound like much of a plan.
