"This is a first-class township. So if you want a first-class library, I
can't imagine running a library on $85,000 a year. ... I'm not an
accountant but I'm not stupid either." - Janet Beerhalter, Scott
Township commissioner about funding a library in the township.
1st-class ideas, 2nd-class cash
"If taxes go up in Scott, the library isn't going to be the main
culprit." - Ellen Souders, member of the Scott Township Library
Taking no responsibility
"The bank has been here since 1934 ... and through all the redevelopment.
Wilmerding has been turned into a gem, with no empty lots and new
housing." - Lawrence Ukryn, Vice president of Compass Federal
Savings Bank about the loss of a Wilmerding police force. North Versailles
Township is providing public safety services in the borough.
Withstanding the test of time
"I think people are making a big deal out of nothing." -Becky Caliari,
sales clerk at the Deli-Icious Delicatessen on Station Street
responding to residents' complaints about council disbanding the
Wilmerding police force.
Mountain out of a molehill
"Wilmerding is clean, has no real crime to speak of and good people." -
Tom Setz, owner of Station Brake Cafe and Deli-Icious Delicatessen
lauding the borough.
