Morning update: Halloween, self-driving Uber & Steelers’ Jones

| Monday, October 31, 2016 7:21 a.m.

A look at what’s happening and what’s coming up in Western Pennsylvania.


Uber has rolled out its latest fleet of self-driving cars on Pittsburgh’s streets, with a self-driving Volvo spotted last week in Oakland.


The biggest scares at Pittsburgh-area costume shops this year came from the real-life horrors of the presidential campaign, or customers’ clashes over hot-ticket costumes like Harley Quinn from the summer blockbuster movie “Suicide Squad.”


Former first-round pick Jarvis Jones is starting to thrive amid an uncertain future with the Steelers.

Holiday prep

Volunteers from the Latrobe Art Center are restoring 12 wooden soldiers that have long been a part of the city’s holiday display. Members are cleaning, sanding and painting the soldiers with a deadline of Nov. 23 so they’re ready for light-up night around Thanksgiving.

Today’s weather

The weather for Halloween should be a treat, with a partly cloudy day with a high of 55 and a low of 45, according to WPXI.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using 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.
