Wow. Bob Guzzardi - the guy the Corbsters spent $60,000 to kick off the ballot for the flimsiest reason - still took 3,501, or 14.46% of Allegheny county, Corbett’s home county. Additionally: Write-In took another 842, or 3.48% in Corbett's home. But hey, that left 82.06% for the unchallenged incumbent Governor. In his own primary. In his own home county. County-wide. Even after spending $60,000 to remove the only primary opponent by the flimsiest loophole, 303 - just over 3% - of Dauphin County Rs wrote in someone else.

Gov. Tom Corbett touted his support for science, technology, engineering and math — or STEM — education programs during a tour on Monday of the North Shore's Carnegie Science Center. Corbett is confronting intense criticism over past education cuts from four Democrats seeking their party's nomination in the May 20 primary to challenge him in November. But Corbett pointed to his February budget address in which he proposed $240 million in Ready to Learn block grants, including an extra $25.5 million for schools in Allegheny County, that could benefit STEM programs. Critics dubbed the proposed 3.3 percent increase an election-year ploy. “It is a challenging period of time for budgets, we understand that,” Corbett said. “But we believe that STEM is going to have a great role (in education) for future generations.” Corbett's budget “strategically invests taxpayer dollars into areas that will benefit students and the long-term economic stability of the commonwealth,” said acting Education Secre ...

American Bald Eagles Stage Comeback after 250 Years Submitted by Annika Linser on Tue, 04/01/2014 - The American bald eagle has made a comeback and the eaglets have also been witnessed hatching. The iconic bird is returning after 250 years since it nested along all three of Pittsburgh's rivers. A live webcam has been capturing the eaglets hatching in real-time. Six adult eagles have been spotted in nests. The nests have been built by the birds along three of the city's major rivers in Allegheny County. One is on the Monongahela River, another within view of the Allegheny River and a third in an undisclosed location along the Ohio River. It's not only bird watchers and biologists who are excited of the comeback of the majestic bird, but the entire community Allegheny County is filled with a felling of pride, said the Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania. "People who are not even birders are thrilled. It is awe-inspiring to see this magnificent creature return. The American bald eagle is in our psyche we ...

ANOTHER FEMALE BITES THE DUST Shantia Dennis, Woman Accused Of Selling Heroin In Happy Meals, 'Crushed' By Charges Joe Mandak 02/12/2014 TOPIC Crime PITTSBURGH (AP) — A woman charged with selling heroin hidden in Happy Meals when she worked for a Pittsburgh McDonalds is "emotionally crushed" by the charges. But defense attorney David Shrager stopped short of denying the charges against 26-year-old Shantia Dennis, of East Pittsburgh. Dennis' preliminary hearing was postponed Tuesday. It was reset for April 9 so Allegheny County prosecutors can get back crime lab tests on the alleged drugs involved. Dennis was arrested Jan. 29 after police say they caught her selling 10 doses of heroin hidden inside a Happy Meal to a confidential informant. Investigators said they also recovered more heroin from Dennis. Authorities say Dennis would sell the drugs to drive-thru customers who uttered the code words, "I'd like to order a toy."

At that time, he was city editor for the Pittsburgh Courier. He was promoted managing editor in 1948. After being managing editor, he was promoted to executive editor of the Pittsburgh Courier in 1956 and remained executive editor until 1965 after John H. Sengstacke purchased the ailing paper. During his time at the Courier, he highlighted the struggles of African Americans for fair employment opportunities. He was a civil rights leader noted for his ability to unify Black newspeople in the fight against discrimination of African Americans in the press. After retirement, he continued to be actively involved in the Pittsburgh community, including becoming the first African American officer on the Community Chest of Allegheny County Council. Prattis died February 29, ...

Allow me to blow your mind for a moment. I just called the Allegheny county permit department to inquire about building a small cabin on my land. They said I would need to call the health department first. So I do. The woman asks where my grey water will go. I say I won't have electricity or running water so It won't go anywhere. She asks where my waste will go then? I simply asked what does everyone else do in the woods? She then tells me... IT IS ILLEGAL! Pardon me!?!? I can't take a crap on my own land!?!? So does a bear poop in the woods? Seems like a simple question, but not legally in MD!

The death of Phillip Seymour Hoffman is tragic. I will not judge him. I just feel sad he will not be able to share his tremendous gift anymore. The 22 overdose deaths in Allegheny County in the last two weeks are equally tragic. I can't judge them either. I will say that it seems bizarre to me that people are insisting that the death of Rocco is somehow more tragic then the death of these sad people. Who knows what gifts might have been lost when these people died? PSH had drug problems his entire fault life and he did great work despite his addictions.

As the region's public transportation organization endured a very public multi-faceted battle of increased fuel costs, cuts in the labor force and cuts in routes, things had been looking more and more grim. Enter Ellen McLean, the former CFO of the Port Authority who stepped into the role of the Port Authority's Interim CEO in February of 2013. Over the past few months, things have been looking up for the Port Authority under her leadership, and after an extensive search to determine a permanent CEO, it was decided that there was no better candidate to fill the bil .. ...

... hump days -- in 1912 and 1913, Pittsburgh authorities carried out "The Hump Project" to clear out and level the natural topographic bulge that existed between the Hill District and the Point. Ungodly amounts of earth moving with primitive equipment changed the gradient of Grant Street, Diamond Street, and Oliver, Fifth, Sixth, Webster and Wylie Avenues to the gentle uphill configuration we have today between Smithfield and Ross. The sheer volume of dirt was one thing. Water, gas and sewer lines were quite another. The biggest problem was working around enormous existing buildings in the area like the Allegheny County Courthouse and Jail, 20-story Frick Building and Kaufmann's department store. Photos 5 and 6 show the renowned "Bridge of Sighs" during the project, across which guilty defendants were whisked from the courtroom to their jail cell. The old jail itself, photo 8 and 9, was more beautiful outside than inside (obviously) and was world renowned for its Romanesque architecture by Henry Hobson . ...

I am a born and bred Pittsburgher. My family started Pittsburgh's first cab company. GREEN CAB. My grandfather drove those cabs while getting his BA at the University of Pittsburgh. One snowy night, he rolled over in one of those cabs, but escaped without a single injury. My people were deep into culture and God. Church was a staple for me since baptism. Half my blood is from dear father. ROBERT E. MCKNIGHT, who, upon a magna *** laude graduation from Vanderbuilt University..was grabbed by Westinghouse and moved to our East End. He began a 44 year career here with big W. I know the east of Pittsburgh well. I was a knotholer at Forbes of the most interesting places for baseball to be played. It was there I saw the great 1960 Pirates play. Met the great Roberto Clemente. I adored them all. I was from city people. But my parents migrated further to the east to the suburbs. I was raised in the largest township in Allegheny County, Penn Hills. I have had a charmed life. Amen!
This was emailed to me this morning Public Service Announcement Please note information on bottom At least 22 people in Western Pennsylvania, including 15 in Allegheny County have now been killed by a deadly mix of heroin and the narcotic Fentanyl. The heroin is believed to be in bags stamped with the words Theraflu, Bud Ice and Income Tax. "Heroin with these specific stamps has been identified by narcotics agents not only in Allegheny County, but also in Westmoreland, Armstrong, Butler, Lawrence and Beaver counties. However, these stamped bags could already or eventually be available in other counties across Pennsylvania," Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane said. "We are contacting hospitals, medical examiners, and police departments in surrounding areas to be on the lookout for these specific stamps of heroin." According to the medical examiner's office, preliminary tests on the bags labeled "Theraflu" show they appear to contain the drug Fentanyl. Fentanyl is roughly 100 times more powerful th ...
FYI: WARNING: The death count is growing in western PA from a deadly heroin being sold on the streets. Twenty-two people have died in the last week including 15 in Allegheny County from this heroin.

PA Attorney General Kathleen says that the stamped bags that this drug is being sold in have been found in six western counties. Kane is calling this a "major public health crisis" and warns that this drug could spread to other areas beyond western PA. (source: CBS Pittsburgh & Pittsburgh Courier)
