The former Moose Lodge building along Fourth Avenue in Tarentum is being razed to make way for a parking lot on Tuesday, Feb. 13, 2018.

The former Moose Lodge building along Fourth Avenue in Tarentum is about to become a parking lot.

Trib Total Media, the parent company of the Valley News Dispatch, purchased the closed building in 2017 as part of the company's efforts to increase its presence in the local community. The company's corporate offices, across the street from the Moose property, moved to their Tarentum location on Wood Street last year.

The purchase of the Moose property is meant to provide parking for the additional employees expected at the Tarentum location this year.

“We consider this purchase an investment in our community and an investment in our future as well,” said Jennifer Bertetto, Trib Total Media President & CEO. “We are making renovations to our building in Tarentum in order to expand our operations here and make this location our corporate home for many years to come.”

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.
