Employees and patients at ManorCare Health Services in Ross Township honored emergency responders on Sept. 11 with an event called “Breakfast-on-the-Go!” featuring free take-out meals for busy police officers, firefighters and emergency medical personnel.

“This was our first event of this kind and we decided it will be an ongoing annual event at ManorCare North Hills,” said Jennifer Scarfone, the facility’s business development specialist.

Breakfast bags also were assembled and delivered to local police, fire and EMS stations for first responders who couldn’t make it to the facility.

Scarfone said the event was not only a way to honor and remember the first responders who died during the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attack, but to meet and shake hands with local emergency responders who “bravely serve our community day in and day out.”

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.
