Letter to the editor: Praise for Kaley Bastine’s efforts

Hats off to Kaley Bastine, a 7-year-old who has raised a large sum of money to support our local police departments (“Harrison’s Kaley Bastine spreading police fundraising efforts to New Kensington,” Aug. 28,TribLIVE). What a terrific young lady.

During my 35 years as a teacher in the Highlands School District, I had the privilege of meeting and teaching thousands of students, many of whom left a lasting impression on me. They made teaching enjoyable and worthwhile. Lucky for us, after graduation, many of them remained in the area; some are members of our local police departments. Hats off also to local officers Justin Bouch, Ken Hanzlik, Chris Cottone, Doug Helgert and Kurt Jendrejewski.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
