Ready for some football?: Summer may be in full swelter, but there's a definite feeling of fall in the air with the opening of the 48th annual Pittsburgh Steelers training camp at St. Vincent College. The first practice is scheduled Saturday at Noll Field. An evening practice is scheduled Aug. 14, 5:30 p.m., at the college. There's also the Latrobe area's annual Steelers celebration, which kicks off at 7 p.m. Aug. 2 at Latrobe Memorial Stadium. Let's get out there and show the ol' home team some support. Here we go!

Justice on the farm: It's not uncommon at this time of year to read about lunkheads who “off-road” their pickup trucks or other vehicles in farmers' fields. Many get caught, including a young man from Latrobe who's accused of causing more than $5,000 in damages to a Derry Township farm. Those convicted of such stupidity should be sentenced to work in the fields they damage, perhaps picking beans or harvesting corn. A few weeks of that kind of labor and these jerks won't think of even walking through a farmer's field.

Happy 125th, Jeannette: For all the negative news out of Jeannette lately, not the least of which is the city's ongoing fiscal plight, the anniversary celebration is a welcome change. It begins Wednesday and continues through Saturday on Magee Avenue. Here's hoping folks near and far will join the festivities and help Jeannette toast its anniversary in fitting style.
