Westmoreland commissioners honor Hempfield’s Terry Ranieri

Rich Cholodofsky

Westmoreland County commissioners on Thursday issued a proclamation honoring the life of Hempfield’s Terry Ranieri.

Ranieri, 64, a 1975 graduate of Hempfield High School, died from cancer on Aug. 22.

Commissioners Gina Cerilli, Ted Kopas and Charles Anderson presented the proclamation to Ranieri’s brothers Tony and Eddy and their sister, Linda DeFloria, during a brief presentation at the courthouse in Greensburg.

The proclamation called for the celebration of Ranieri’s life and memory, honored his dedication to the Hempfield community and outpouring of support.

“Terry never met anyone he didn’t like. The only time he got upset was when the Steelers, Penguins or Pirates lost,” according to the proclamation, which celebrated Ranieri’s lasting memory and Hempfield Area High School’s No. 1 super fan.

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.
