To mark the 17th anniversary of 9/11, Dorseyville Middle School students hosted an appreciation breakfast for local first responders, drawing more than 60 visitors to the school along Saxonburg Boulevard in Indiana Township.

Blawnox police Officer Patrick Goodman joined his son, DMS seventh-grader Nick Goodman, for an early-morning meal along with other students from Team 7A.

Teacher Todd Ashbaugh said he was grateful to donations from John Marshall Catering and the Gail and Steve Burke Educational Foundation, both of which made the second annual event possible.

“It was a wonderful turnout from each Fox Chapel Area community,” Ashbaugh said. “Thanks for keeping us safe.”

He said it is a great lesson for students to witness first responders taking time out of their day to interact at the school.

“The face-to-face time was invaluable for the kids and adults alike,” Ashbaugh said.

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.
