Nothing else to do?: State Rep. Daryl Metcalfe wasted Butler County District Attorney Richard Goldinger's time by demanding an investigation of Republican county Commissioners Bill McCarrier and A. Dale Pinkerton. At a time when many of the Cranberry Republican's fellow lawmakers are going to jail for real corruption, he wants the commissioners prosecuted for — GASP! — going to two polling places in his 12th District on primary election day. Goldinger diplomatically told Metcalfe to get lost.

Not a good sign: It's a sad, if not telling, indication that there'll be no Community Days celebration in Jeannette this summer, in part because of dwindling volunteers who work on the event year-round.

And that's not good for a city struggling to pull itself up from fiscal despair.

Those Bucco All-Stars: Three Pittsburgh Pirates have been named to the National League All-Star Game team. Outfielder Andrew McCutchen, last year's league MVP will start for the first time in next Tuesday's mid-summer classic.
