Greensburg Tuesday takes

Rough road to training camp: Only PennDOT, in its scheduling wisdom, would opt to mill a section of Route 30 to and from the Steelers' training camp at St. Vincent College and leave it a rutted mess on the first weekend of practice. Or is this PennDOT's way of suggesting that Steelers fans are in for a rough season? With timing like this, it's no wonder PennDOT is the butt of jokes.

Final straw?: Frank Trigona of Jeannette wants the city to pay nearly $267,000 in damages and legal fees awarded in a lawsuit against the city involving his rental properties. The city, which is trying to borrow money just to keep operating, apparently doesn't have it. Even if city fathers dodge this bullet, how much longer can they put off state oversight, which seems to be inevitable? Or, more importantly, at what cost?

Pennant pivot?: The four-day, five-game series that the Pittsburgh Pirates began at home on Monday against the St. Louis Cardinals might not determine this season's outcome — once it ends, the teams still have nine more games against each other — but its implications are clear. With the Bucs and Cards dueling for best National League record, this series — to many, the biggest in PNC Park's history — could be a turning point, setting the tone and direction for the stretch drive. And Wednesday's trade deadline only thickens the plot. Let's go Bucs!
