The Aliquippa tragedy: The tragic death of two Beaver County children should be a sad object lesson in leaving youngsters unattended. Brooklyn Beatty, 2, and her sister, Ryeley, 3, died of injuries suffered when they apparently tipped over a dresser in their Aliquippa home on Friday. As this unfortunate incident shows, it only takes a few seconds for the unthinkable to happen.

The CCAC thefts: There can be little comfort in word that chemicals that can be used to make drugs or explosives were stolen last week from the North Side campus of Community College of Allegheny County. Among the chemicals missing from the school's science center are hydrogen peroxide, acetone and sulfuric acid. Authorities do say they don't believe the chemicals were taken as part of any threat. New security measures have been implemented campuswide in response. Why they weren't in place to begin with is a valid question.

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, made the squad for the fourth-straight year but will start for the first time in next Tuesday's mid-summer classic. And setup man Tony Watson and utility man Josh Harrison, both bringing their own brand of excitement to the game, will join “Cutch” on the roster in Minneapolis. It's three feathers in the cap of a franchise continuing its slow and steady rise.
