Paying up: Increases in the collection of restitution payments to Westmoreland County crime victims (up 37 percent in 2013) reflect an ongoing trend since Clerk of Courts Bryan Kline took office in 2009. Defendants who miss their payments are summoned to a hearing. That's as it should be. Court-ordered fines and restitution become meaningless if they go uncollected. It's good to see that the buck does indeed stop at Mr. Kline's office.

R.I.P.: Noah Cornuet. The Burrell High School football player and wrestler, who died last week from a rare heart tumor during practice, was by all accounts an outstanding young man who was wrapping up his Eagle Scout project when he died. Let's hope the Boy Scouts of America look kindly upon a request to posthumously award his Eagle status. Our condolences to Noah's family and friends.

PNC Park prescription: Now hosting the Detroit Tigers after losing a home series to the San Diego Padres for the 14th consecutive time, the Pirates are free of that seeming jinx but still hurting from injuries. Chants of “Get well soon!” for Neil Walker and Andrew McCutchen can alternate with “Let's go Bucs!”
