Re: “Donald Trump lost the declining, white working-class Southwestern Pa. towns he visited

Just a note: I believe the (very nearly 100% tallied now) final numbers have only a 44,307 margin of victory for PA statewide - Clinton 2,926,457 to Trump 2,970,764. http://www.electionreturns.pa.gov/ENR_NEW

Re: “Concert review: Ms. Lauryn Hill at Carnegie of Homestead Music Hall, May 11

I went to see Lauryn last night in St.Petersburg,FL as an early birthday present. I totally agree with Keyona Dawson,thank you for that. She definitely had no interaction with the crowd and was extremely cold someone yelled "We love you Lauryn" her response was a little giggle (under her breath). I love Lauryns' music and felt extremly disappointed. It felt fake and to "glammed up" for me. She did a great rendition of Nina Simones'"Feeling Good" that was the best song she performed. I understand that her style has changed but would have loved to see her mix it up a bit more (slow down the music tempo to the orginal one without that jazz/pop feel. I was hoping to see and hear a bit more of her real music being "L Boogie" or "Lauryn with the guitar." She didn'the even sing "Piece of Mind" which I guess was a good thing, I probably would not have been able to follow along with the song anyway. As one of my birthday gifts this was a waste of time and money. I truely wish I could of gotten a refund. I could have watched the taped performance of this. I hope she changes her performance before going to Miami,FL which I am sure she will. Love Lauryns' music but that performance was not what I expected at all.

Re: “Pittsburgh’s Bloomfield neighborhood gets its first luxury lofts

Horrible. Already people are being driven out of Bloomfield, just like in Lawerenceville and East Liberty, and this will just make it worse. Good plan, Peduto, making the city unaffordable for all the people that got you elected in the first place.

Re: “Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority responds to lead concerns with series of community meetings

During the PWSA meeting discussed in this article, I had asked questions trying to determine the cause of PWSA changing the water treatment mix. I was not able to get a direct response.

What I was trying to uncover is expressed in the following 2 paragraphs of this article: https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2016/sep/12/pittsburgh-water-expensive-rust-colored-corrosive

"
By 2010, the water agency was struggling with what seemed like an invasion of cancer-causing chemicals called trihalomethanes, formed when salty fracking wastewater came into contact with treated drinking water.

In an effort to reduce brominated trihalomethanes, the PWSA dropped chlorine levels, one of several factors Stanley States, the director of water quality at PWSA until 2014, believes led to increased lead levels.
"

This leaves me with a question that has 3 parts:

1) Can we get data or information from PWSA - or past PWSA employees - regarding whether fracking contaminants were a factor in the treatment change?

2) Can we get PWSA - or elsewhere - to provide evidence that this change aggravated the leaching lead issue many to most Pittsburghers are faced with today?

3) If (1) and (2) are 'Yes', then will Pittsburgh utilize the 2011 ordinance CHAPTER 619: TOXIC TRESPASS RESULTING FROM UNCONVENTIONAL NATURAL GAS DRILLING to obtain enough money from the fracking industry and lessors to pay for the replacement of lead pipes within the city? The Toxic Trespass law is here: http://www.marcellusprotest.org/sites/marcellusprotest.org/files/Pittsburgh%20Toxic%20Trespass%20Ordinance.pdf

Many Pittsburgh homeowners (including myself, my test result came in at 9.63) and business owners will soon have to pay several thousand dollars each for a problem that likely did not exist before the combination of fracking contaminants and Veolia mismanagement aggravated the problem - caused lead pipes to once again leach lead in unsafe quantities. Can we not instead get those reponsible to pay for these changes?

Re: “Pittsburgh City Council introduces city ban on conversion therapy

The strange paradox of the 'progressive' gender advocates - we need to ban all forms of therapy to minors that attempts to change sexual orientation because that would be homophobic. But we should actively provide synthetic hormones, hormone blockers or gender reassignment surgery to minors who believe they were born in the wrong biological body - because to it would be transphobic not to.

Re: “Pittsburgh City Council introduces city ban on conversion therapy

No one is parenting anyone's children here. The STRONG MESSAGE is that our city will refuse to demonize sexual minorities under the incoming Trump regime.
