Robinson Township Police blotter for Wednesday, Dec. 12.
A Monessen woman forked over $300 for a pair of Justin Bieber concert tickets that turned out to be fakes, according to Robinson police.

Club officials say the 2011 season proved to be the club's worst fiscal year.
A Moon Golf Club official said a wet spring season and stretch of sweltering summer days made for a difficult year for the community golf course. By May, rainy weather shuttered the 18-hole course more than a dozen times, leaving the club nearly $100,000 behind in revenue. It was a loss the club never managed to recoup, said Ralph Canterbury, a member of the Moon Township Recreational Authority, to whom the township leases the course. "We really did not recover [from the spring]," Canterburry said. "We stabilized, but it was not a great summer. It was hot and dry for a long time, and then it went right back to rainy." In September, the Moon Township Board of Supervisors agreed to postpone two of the club's three $60,000 yearly lease …

Troopers train critical eyes on nearly 1,700 buses to ensure that they can safely transport children.
It didn’t matter to Trooper Brian Davies that the school bus he was inspecting Wednesday morning was brand new. Pennsylvania State Police troopers out of the Moon Township barracks inspected nearly 1,700 buses this summer, but Davies was taking no chances with the 2012 International bus right off the assembly line. “I try to look at every bus the same, whether it’s brand new or 10 years old,” Davis said, noting a recent inspection revealed a new bus had a broken brake line. “It can be brand new and have problems or be 10 years old and in perfect condition.” Five troopers at the barracks inspected 1,687 buses from across Allegheny County this summer and found 445 violations, mostly malfunctioning light bulbs or other minor problems that are…
