The “stars” came out last month for the Hahntown Elementary School's annual “Reading With the Stars” program.

The local celebrities who read to about 80 youngsters were: North Huntingdon Police Det. Sgt. Jeff Bouldin; Barbara Flynn, Norwin Public Library children's librarian; Dr. Steve Gribar, a general surgeon at Excela Health Westmoreland hospital in Greensburg; Tom Kerber, owner of Kerber's Dairy in North Huntingdon; Cindy Corder of Bella Amici Photography, North Huntingdon; Mary Senchur, Eat ‘n Park senior vice president of operations; Westmoreland County Judge Meagan Bilik-DeFazio; Halle Copeman of S&T Bank of Irwin; and Carly Paulovich, a pharmacist at Giant Eagle supermarket.

After the readings, Stage Right, a Greensburg theatre arts company, performed “Cat in the Hat Comes Back” for the students.

The special event has been held for more than 20 years, said Shannon Glenn, a second-grade teacher at Hahntown Elementary School in North Huntingdon. It was started at the former Scull Elementary School by Diane Moretton, a mother involved with the school's PTA, Glenn said.

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.
