Re: “Wigle Whiskey starting crowdfund to create a new whiskey museum in Pittsburgh

I collect antique whiskey stuff and have many antique whiskey items from both MD and PA. I would be willing to lend some antique PA whiskey items for display. See "GunOwnerDan" in youtube to contact me.

Re: “Pittsburgh group protests vice-presidential nominee Mike Pence's workers'-rights history and policies

Absurd that people strictly adhere to party lines. I personally have voted for the democrat tickets my entire life, and this will be the first election I refuse to do so. I want an outsider who has been successful and not the face of my party who has been embroiled in more controversy and is a compulsive liar. I don't like Trump, but I do think that he has proven to be able to run multiple companies profitably (not all, but definitely multiple), so he has a better chance of doing that for our government. Especially moreso than someone who supposedly came out of the white house "penniless" and used her political weight for personal enrichment while jeopardizing our nation and lying to her people constantly. I don't believe in these lifelong politicians anymore, as they only serve those who benefit themselves. We need a drastic change and shake up -- and yes, change is scary - but look what it brought us last time we made history by electing our contry's first african-american president! Aside from his personal perogatives, I think he did a far better job than what we will get under a Clinton Administration, and that is indeed scary!

Re: “Hillary Clinton campaign focuses on women in Pennsylvania

She's a terrible candidate - and so is the right's pick this time too.
As a woman who was raped, I can not support someone who got a rapist off the sentencing he deserved. Hillary proudly acknowledged she won the case, yet she claims she fights for women. To shame Mrs. Clinton! You should be appalled with yourself as the majority of women victims are not buying into your false image. Actions speak louder than words!

Re: “Pittsburgh is the first stop for millennials looking to raise awareness of affordable-housing issues

Citwatchee - Good news! The Whole Foods could actually benefit the community if done in the right way. Check out this example in New Orleans. WF partnered with The Refresh Project to provide a job training and culinary kitchen on site, healthy foods education, community space etc. I HOPE there are some lessons here that could be borrowed for your community. - Rachel Reilly Carroll

Re: “Prayer vigil held in Downtown Pittsburgh for undocumented immigrant Martin Esquivel-Hernandez

The Emmanuel Lutheran Church of Eastmont is in Penn Hills, just a few doors down from the Wilkins Township border. It is NOT in Monroeville.

He should request asylum. I feel for him, but laws matter.

Re: “Pittsburgh is the first stop for millennials looking to raise awareness of affordable-housing issues

While there were plenty of options for Wholefoods expansion, the reality is a deal has been done. The question is can the deal turn lemons into lemonade in terms of design quality and up front inclusion of replacement affordable housing -mixed income over the top of whole foods.... Both/And not either/or!

Re: “Ball on the Bridge highlights LGBT ball culture on the Andy Warhol Bridge

It might have occurred to the author to bother to define the term "ball culture".

Re: “Pittsburgh officials asking for input on 'Complete Streets' and bike-lane plans

Bravo!!! The more space, safety, accommodation, and consideration of ALL people moving around the city the better. AND tourists will be attracted based on ease of biking here.. I do not use my bike on city streets due to fear; so I applaud these ideas...Peace..

Re: “Dave Matthews Band's Boyd Tinsley talks about longevity, playing Pittsburgh and the group's 25th anniversary

I saw DMB in Pittsburgh in 2010 at Heinz Field, I don't think I've seen the band play that good ever...20-30 minute versions of #41 and Two Step that left most people breathless. Clear skies, moon rose behind the band, It seemed like they played 11-14 songs at 2 hours and 45 minutes, but they might have played more songs...i was completely amazed and converted...the closest to what I heard and saw at Pittsburgh was captured on CD, DMB Live at Wrigley Field in Chicago...

Re: “Faced with steep renovation costs, Pittsburgh's James Street Gastropub launches #SaveJamesStreet campaign

Dear Editor,

I would like to share my thoughts regarding the recent article about James Street Gastro Pub. James Street is a very cool venue with a lot to offer. It would be a shame if it were no longer part of the North Side entertainment scene. I am troubled by a couple of things that I read. Mr. Saftner said that because of noise complaints the livelihood of the pub is at risk. This is not new that noise is an issue. The upper floors are not air conditioned and the windows are open . A single flute player would be acceptable but I don't see that on the schedule any time soon. The owner needs to update the building and is playing on our kind and generous nature to foot the bill. Well, we are already paying. There is a cover charge to walk in the door and the food prices have gone way up and the quality of the food has gone down. So I usually stop at the Park House for a couple of drinks and great food at a fair price before I go to a show. The owner is taking advantage of some publicity and is now asking us to help pay for updates. Stop the madness! He needs to be like every other responsible business owner and use the money he's already making off us to make the improvements. Oh, and my house and car need a few repairs if anyone wants to help me pay.
