Meeting set to discuss Coal and Coke Trail

| Monday, Dec. 22, 2003

Supporters of the proposed Coal and Coke Trail between Mount Pleasant and Scottdale will meet next month to lay the groundwork for trail construction.

The meeting is set for 1 p.m. Jan. 13 at Jimmy Paul's Restaurant, in Mount Pleasant. Supporters who attend will be asked to commit themselves or their organization to one or more tasks:

= Members of the Construction Committee will plan and work on building the trail.

= Maintenance Committee members at first will clear trash, cut weeds, shrubs and trees, and collect and recycle tires from the trail. After the trail is built, members will patch holes in its surface, mend fences and benches, and report major problems to the board.

= Membership Committee members will distribute brochures and recruit trail chapter members.

= Members of the Fund-raising Committee will contact businesses, organizations and foundations, seeking additional funds for construction, maintenance and operation of the trail and its supporting organization.

Grant money is available for the project, but the trail chapter must raise matching funds.

For more information, or to volunteer to help, contact the Coal and Coke Trail Chapter, P.O. Box 360, Scottdale, PA 15683.

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.
