Neurosurgeon J. William Bookwalter was examining a colleague’s patient who had back troubles when he made an unusual discovery: The operation that his colleague billed Medicare for was far more extensive than the one actually done, according to allegations contained in a lawsuit.
It turns out you can teach an old dog new tricks. That’s if the dog is super-soldier former CIA agent Jason Bourne (Matt Damon), and the trainer is director Paul Greengrass, who helmed Bournes “Supremacy” and “Ultimatum.” After the misfire that was “The Bourne Legacy,” a misguided attempt to pass off the franchise to Jeremy Renner, Mr. Damon and Mr. Greengrass ably right the ship, delivering a Bourne film that looks and feels like the kind that we’ve always loved.
When you’ve directed nearly four dozen films in the course of half a century, it might be hard to avoid repeating yourself — especially if you are a legend with carte blanche to make whatever you want and you like making a certain kind of movie.
Allegheny Valley Bancorp says profits slipped

Maybe this is what it means to live in the post-Roger Ailes era if you’re a conservative. Maybe extremely bombastic personalities like Bill O’Reilly of Fox News are doomed to be “misunderstood” by the public going forward.
When President Ronald Reagan, my father, was lying in a hospital bed recovering from the gunshots that nearly killed him, he said, “I know my ability to heal depends on my willingness to forgive John Hinckley.” I, too, believe in forgiveness. But forgiving someone in your heart doesn’t mean that you let him loose in Virginia to pursue whatever dark agenda he may still hold dear.
I’m so tired of the media telling me that I don’t like Hillary Clinton, that she’s too shrill, that she has a “trust issue,” that she’s part of the problem, etc., etc. In reality, she’s a smart, savvy woman who has worked her entire life to help others. The Republicans have, at every turn, tried to paint an evil picture of her that they hoped the rest of us would swallow.
Leave it to Donald Trump — reaching out to Russia for help in his quest to become president of the United States. Never mind that his request basically condones foreign state invasion of emails to and from our former secretary of state. Mr. Trump’s banking on some personal benefit accruing to him from a tidbit in one of 30,000-plus messages to or from the secretary — an end that surely justifies his means. (No, it doesn’t!)

As the manager at ArcelorMittal Monessen, I have witnessed the impact that imported steel has had on our industry here in America, and I know it’s a very real problem. Recently, I heard comments from both of our presidential candidates on the issue that indicate they both understand its importance. Whether it’s Donald Trump’s recent comments here in Monessen or Hillary Clinton talking about the Trans-Pacific Partnership deal, trade is obviously a central issue in the campaign.
In international affairs, in general, and particularly in relations between states that profess to be democracies, interfering in each other’s elections is considered to be bad form and unwise.
In the past few weeks, there have been several pieces in the PG extolling the unalloyed virtues of fracking as the best short-term answer to our energy problem, especially as emissions from fracking are about one-half those of coal.
Pittsburgh police Chief Cameron McLay’s enlightened views on community relations have been good for Pittsburgh. He has a good story to tell, but it was a mistake for him to tell it Tuesday from the stage of the Democratic National Convention.
Hillary Clinton and her supporters claim she’s broken the glass ceiling by being nominated for president of the United States. What they fail to mention is Bill provided the ladder to get her there.
