Feeding time at the James Sharp Landing

Jennifer Daniels and her daughter, 8-month-old Cheyenne Galford, feed the ducks that frequent the 13th Street boat ramp in Sharpsburg.

Sharpsburg resident Jennifer Daniels took time Tuesday morning with her daughter, Cheyenne Galford, to feed the ducks swimming in the Allegheny River at the James Sharp Landing along 13th Street.

Daniels is a lifelong resident of the borough and said the summer spot has changed dramatically since she was a child.

“It used to be all dirt and rocks,” she said. “I wasn’t even allowed down here.”

Since the borough has poured money into improvements at the boat dock, Daniels said she brings her 8-month-old baby frequently to sit under the gazebo, watch boaters and enjoy the amenities.

The pair have even named some of the ducks, with Daniels saying she recognizes many that have returned from previous years. On Tuesday, there were at least 30 floating on the water, waiting for her to toss bread their way.

“It’s really nice now and I think more and more people are enjoying it,” she said.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
