New Ludlum mill: We've been hearing for a while that not all is rosy with the construction of ATI-Allegheny Ludlum's new $1.1 billion rolling mill in Brackenridge. Ludlum had said it planned to start operations by the end of 2013, but now say it won't be fully functional until much later this year. ATI says it will provide an update during its Jan. 22 investor meeting to review 2013 results. We'll anxiously await.

Movin' on up: A “state of the county” presentation by Westmoreland's three commissioners to the Westmoreland Chamber of Commerce strikes a number of positive chords: Unemployment (6.8 percent) is down, the average price of homes is up (4.6 percent) and property sales are on the rise (10.6 percent). Economics professor Robert P. Strauss at Carnegie Mellon University attributes those positives to a “regional tilt” to Westmoreland. In all, it's a positive snapshot. The challenge ahead is to maintain that momentum.

Congrats!: To Bob Shoop. It appears the Oakmont native and former Riverview High School football star will become the defensive coordinator at Penn State. Shoop served in that position at Vanderbilt University for all three years new Nittany Lions Coach James Franklin headed the Commodores' program.
