Not since Ivan: Wednesday's flooding in the Kiski Valley was the worst there since Hurricane Ivan pounded the region a decade ago. But officials are hinting that damage might not be widespread enough to trigger federal disaster aid. Floods don't seem “localized” when it's your house lifted from its foundation. Again, we're reminded of the need for homeowners to carry flood insurance.

Local boy makes good: Who says you have to be a great athlete to go far from the Alle-Kiski Valley? Leechburg native John Phillips made it to Italy — as the U.S. ambassador to that country. He leaves for Rome on Sept. 12, but not before his hometown threw him a going away party. Not bad for the kid who used to sell junk cars for $20. Good luck, John.
