Greensburg Laurels & Lances

Laurel: To all assisting in the resumption of classes this week at Franklin Regional Senior High School. After a student's horrific stabbing rampage, the difficult task of restoring normalcy, and a sense of security, began with special sessions at the campus — and lots of community support. Here's to moving forward.

Lance: To the Rullo deal. After months of wrangling over an employment dispute with administrator Lisa Rullo, Greensburg Salem school directors agreed to pay her $193,000 to make the matter go away — regardless of citing specific reasons for why the district wanted to demote her. Was the district's case against Ms. Rullo so weak, or ill conceived, that a fat bolus of cash was the only resolution? And what happens, in this district or others, if another staffer or administrator up for demotion or discipline envisions a similar payday? This is the sorry price paid when the tail wags the dog.

On the “Watch List”: Unity-Latrobe relations. The township is pulling out of a joint recreation commission with Latrobe. A snit over funding for Adams Memorial Library in Latrobe turned into a donnybrook. And now Unity is miffed because it didn't have much “correspondence” with Latrobe over putting a resource officer (a police officer) in the Greater Latrobe School District, which serves Unity? This new low in communications between neighbors requires less finger-pointing by municipal leaders and more willingness to sit down and clear the air.
