Greensburg Tuesday takes

On a roll: Las Vegas is the latest destination for Spirit Airlines’ nonstop flights from Arnold Palmer Regional Airport, beginning April 16. Obviously Spirit’s air-travel model is working at the Unity airport, which has added more parking (which is free) to accommodate the increase in travelers. Indeed, operations have taken off. Here’s hoping local gamblers en route to Vegas will have the good sense not to wager their return tickets home.

Roof issues: A $1.2 million roof installed in 2003 at Norwin High School shouldn’t be leaking in two spots in 2014. The roof has a 20-year warranty. Before any quickie patch jobs are done “under warranty,” the entire roof should be thoroughly inspected and a determination made as to whether there’s a problem with the roofing materials or the roof’s installation. The district should not contend with any more leaks over the course of the warranty.

Slow down: A state trooper faces weeks of recovery after he was struck by an SUV as he picked up debris on Route 119 in East Huntingdon. State police said the trooper parked his vehicle to block the right lane and its emergency lights were on. Most drivers have sense enough to slow down when they see flashing lights in the distance, whether it’s an accident scene or a construction zone. People who don’t shouldn’t be driving.


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.
