Tarentum’s business owners stepped up and got to decorating for the borough’s Christmas window decorating contest.

The Recreation Board has selected the winners.

“We had so many decorate, it was a very tough decision,” Tarentum Councilwoman Carrie Fox said. “These business owners went out of their way.”

Lehman Flower Shop took first place, followed by runnerup Costello Printing.

Asay’s News Stand came in third. There was a tie for honorable mention between Dry Bones and Seita Jewelers.

It had been a long time since such a contest had been done. The Recreation Board brought it back this year.

The board will sponsor a flower contest in the spring, Fox said.

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.
