Alle-Kiski Tuesday takes
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.
No respect from PSU: For too long, the Penn State Board of Trustees has treated its 24 Commonwealth Campuses poorly. University Park's “send us your money and shut up” attitude is condescending and counterproductive. So it was heartening to see PSU's three newest trustees visit Penn State New Kensington last week. One even pledged to never vote to close a campus while on the board.
