Alle-Kiski Tuesday takes
Horse sense: The Equine Angels group rescues what it says are neglected horses from farms in Butler County and state police file charges against the owners. But the owners say the horses are fine and the cops screwed up. Butler District Attorney Richard Goldinger sides with the owners and drops the charges. We're not sure what's going on here, but all of the parties need to sit down and hash things out. But the owners' lawsuit against Equine Angels may prevent that.
Traffic? What traffic: After PennDOT closed the Tarentum Bridge eastbound for paving the weekend of Aug. 10-11, we saw long lines of traffic. But last weekend, the westbound lanes were closed and traffic really wasn't a problem. We're not sure why, but who cares?
Kudos: New Kensington, Arnold and the Kinloch section of Lower Burrell are downtrodden communities, but they still have residents plugging along to make them better places to live. Two festivals on Saturday certainly demonstrated that — Rock the Block was a great New Ken-Arnold event and Kinloch Day celebrated the neighborhood's revitalized playground.
No more Heinz “Anticipation”: The ketchup giant has fired nearly one-third of its Pittsburgh headquarters staff mere months after going private. Job cuts were expected but, perhaps, the large number of cuts were not. The new bosses say they're committed to keeping Pittsburgh as their headquarters. Saying is one thing; doing it will be another.
