Dozens of youth from the region came to White Bridge in Mt. Pleasant Township on Saturday morning for a Mentored Youth Fishing day.

The event, sponsored by the Jacobs Creek Watershed Association, draws boys and girls to the popular spot for trout fishing. The program is managed by the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission. Youth obtain a fishing license at a discounted rate and learn about fishing and being outdoors.

Annie Quinn, executive director of the watershed association, said about 70 boys and girls turned out for the event, joined by family, friends and mentors. The event is designed to foster interest in fishing and bring people out to activities in the watershed.

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.
