Alle-Kiski Laurels & Lances

Lance: To Springdale Council. If these folks want to find someone to blame because they look foolish, we recommend they find a mirror. They hired Julio Medeiros III to clean up the mess that is their police department. After four months, they're looking to fire him. So either they're micromanaging dilettantes or Medeiros was a bad hire (we bet it's the former). Either way, the situation is the council's fault.
Laurel: To Oberg Industries. The precision-component and tool-and-die manufacturer is looking to build an addition to one of its Buffalo Township plants and hire 40 to 50 new employees. This is on top of the 100 or so hirings in the past two years. Oberg has a 60-plus-year history in the Alle-Kiski Valley and provides good-paying jobs to several hundred local residents.
Laurel: To Lauryn Williams. The Rochester woman has become the first American woman and only the fifth athlete to win medals in both the summer and winter Olympics. The Beaver County star picked up a silver medal this week in the two-woman bobsledding competition in Sochi. Our heartiest congratulations.
Good luck: To the “THON” kids. This weekend, three Penn State New Kensington students will spend 46 straight hours on their feet “for the kids.” Melissa Gabrielli, Mitchell Hastings and Michael Cavazza will represent PSNK as dancers in the Penn State Dance Marathon — better known as “THON” — at the University Park main campus. THON raised more than $12 million last year.

TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
