Lance: To New Kensington's warring authorities. Sewer is suing water because water is charging too much to read meters and sewer needs the water meter readings to figure out sewer bills, which are billed separately from water. Both sides are incurring legal fees that will be footed by the ratepayers. Here's a thought: Abolish both authorities and replace them with one water and sewer authority, which means less bureaucracy and one bill — all at lower cost to ratepayers.

Lance: To the Riverhawk. The Riverhawk is the just-chosen nickname/mascot for the new Armstrong High School. But what's a Riverhawk? Excellent question. Our research reveals it's a type a flower, specifically, a bearded iris. It's a perfectly lovely purple flower. Should make for quite the fearsome mascot.
