Laurel: To the “Olympic” Penguins. Our Pens will be well represented at the hockey rink during the Sochi games, with Brooks Orpik and Paul Martin playing for the United States, Sid Crosby and Chris Kunitz for Canada, Olli Maatta and Jussi Jokinen for Finland and Geno Malkin for the host, Russia.

On the “Watch List”: The ice jam. There are millions of tons of ice stuck on the Allegheny River between New Kensington and Creighton. The jam creates the potential for damage along shore and for flooding. Hopefully, the warmer weather and rain forecast for today and the weekend will slowly break up the jam and the chunks just float away.
