It's time again to highlight community members who make the Sewickley Valley a better place.

You, our readers, again are invited to help this community newspaper select honorees for the Sewickley Herald's Man, Woman and Citizens of the Year.

From now through Feb. 28, we'll look for your recommendations on those who have given to the community.

Send us a few paragraphs detailing the achievements of an individual or group whom you think should be honored.

Include your name, phone number and email address so we can learn more about your choices.

Letters can be sent to the Sewickley Herald, 504 Beaver St., Sewickley, PA 15143 or emailed to rcherry@tribweb.com.

Honorees will be named in the March 8 edition of the Sewickley Herald in print and online.

In the spring, the Herald will host its annual honors celebration, when the community gathers to salute a new set of honorees. We will announce details of our event in the coming weeks.

From the beginning more than 40 years ago, B.G. Shields, then editor of the Herald, established the award to honor select individuals who had contributed above and beyond, in quiet ways or on the public stage, as documented in the pages of the paper.

And we've done so ever since, from our first honorees — Gloria Berry and District Justice James Russo, to our most recent group of honorees — Floyd Faulkner, Terri Tunick, Parker Redcross, and The Tull Family Theater.

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.
