KICKING IT OFF: The Kiski School welcomed co-chairs Russell C. Swank III, '67, and Sandy Mellon, headmaster Christopher Brueningsen and George Davison, '82, to a fundraising kickoff celebrating its $8 million athletic center. The center, set to open in fall 2015, includes an expanded weight-training facility and gymnasium, and is the capstone project of the school’s 10-year, $23 million capital campaign. The event was Nov. 7 at Inventionland in O'Hara Township, created by and owned by another Kiski alum, George Davison, ’82.

THE BACKSTAGE BASH: The red carpet was rolled out for a sold-out crowd arriving at the Renaissance Pittsburgh hotel on Nov. 6 to celebrate WYEP’s 40th anniversary. While guests battled over some hot-ticket items in the silent auction — including house concerts donated by Joe Grushecky, The Clarks and Mike Glabicki — acoustic sets were performed by Jessica Bitsura, The Wreckids, Bill Deasy and Scott Blasey before Trombone Shorty hit the stage. WYEP began its life in a basement studio in Oakland. Over the years, it has morphed into one of our city’s most treasured havens for independent artists, both locally and nationally. Shown: Karla and Clint Hurdle and Jim Trdinich

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.
