On the “Watch List”: The Verona Doughboy. The World War I Doughboy memorial statue has been through a lot over the years, suffering damage and deterioration. It's haunted the borough's garage since collapsing in 2007. Borough officials say restoration is underway and they hope the Doughboy will be back along Allegheny River Boulevard by the end of 2014, the 100th anniversary of the war's start. Let's hope so.

Laurel: To Gerry Vaerewyck. The West Deer supervisor has filed a complaint with the state Ethics Commission over board Chairman Jeff Fleming's construction company doing work at the township-owned senior center. We don't know if Vaerewyck is right, but at least he carries with him the courage of his convictions. Far, far too many public officials turn a blind eye when their fellow council members, supervisors, etc. violate their oaths.

Good luck!: High school football kicks off tonight. We don't have any teams favored to win a WPIAL championship, but some Alle-Kiski teams will no doubt make some noise in playoffs. And we also have our fingers crossed that none of the kids suffer serious injuries.
