While at The Tribune-Democrat: Dawn and Tina visited The Tribune-Democrat on Wednesday.

Ed Rendell’s announcement of funding for a nursing school at Pitt-Johnstown and other local projects, and they agreed that it was an important story and deserved prominent play. They also liked a picture by staff photographer Dave Lloyd featuring two young boys and a puppy. “I don’t particularly like dogs, but that picture is so cute,” Dawn said. The picture appeared Friday on Page A4.
