Re: “Forgive Us Our Debts

Ladies and gentlemen please lend me your audience, I want to talk about something that I am just very excited about; We had a small restaurant and in my apartment I had a bad credit. It became very though for us, because people do not want to loan; banks and other financial institution do not want to loan money to us because of my bad credit. So I needed to find someone that was very lenient and also could pay really quick to us, so we wanted to add on to our restaurant in other words we needed an $80,000 loan which was really difficult at that time. So a friend of mine 'Sarah William' said checkout: tenterdenfundsplc@yahoo.com and i was like okay.. thou I didn't believe because I already lost $4,300 to scams and she said' just email or call/ text: +18027369174 and they will get back to you quick, I did exactly as she said. that day I got a response, the next day I got funded, it was that fast. I was blown away and I couldn't believe how quick it was, this guys are really fast. anyways thank you guys at Tenterden Funding Plc. I couldn't have done it without you, thank you for saving us the hassle. And I just want you guys to know that you can contact them as well if you are having issues regarding finance.;,

Re: “Over the Board

Hello BNC, I own Property in Beltzhoover and I want to rebuild soon as this neighbor hood gets it act together. I am not writing to start any more issues, I am hoping and praying that we start working together to move this community forward. It is our time now and the only folks we can blame is ourselves! So lets stop with the finger pointing and humble ourselves to create what God has given us in each other. Please stop the fighting and stop blaming each other and just hold each one up and give the benefit of the doubt. We should yell at the tugs / brothers and sisters that continue to dump trash in the empty lots and offer drugs to neighbors. Let's do a reset on this thing starting right now.... It is ok for us to make a mistake we just need to get past it asap. Note: NASA had several space ships explode leaving or coming but they went back to work the next day and we only talk about the success of the agency. Let's Make Beltzhoover a better place after our mistakes. LOVE YALL!!!!!!! God Blessed and forgive quickly!

Re: “As Donald Trump prepares to be sworn in as the 45th president, Ambridge isn’t waiting around for his help.

So moral of the story, there are two sides to every story. I am happy to see people who care out there trying to make a difference instead of just spouting comments about how the town has gone to shit while doing nothing to better the situation. I grew up in Ambridge and would love to see it bounce back!

I am sorry, but I disagree that Trump divided the people. Over the last eight years is when the people became more divided than ever.

Re: “As Donald Trump prepares to be sworn in as the 45th president, Ambridge isn’t waiting around for his help.

Hey SW PA native, thanks for the comment. The story actually mentions how Trump gained ground compared to Romney in Beaver County, and how there are clearly signs of significant Trump support in town. However, this story was inspired by the people of Ambridge reaching out to me, (not me going out of my way) wanting to tell a different story to what they are used to reading about in Ambridge.

The article is not about how Democrats are losing ground in Ambridge or how Beaver County is becoming more Republican. It is about a town and the people there that are working hard to try and improve Ambridge, regardless of national politics or the Democratic or Republican party.

As always, thanks for your readership and your input into the story.

Re: “As Donald Trump prepares to be sworn in as the 45th president, Ambridge isn’t waiting around for his help.

Ryan, it seems as though this story is devoted to "debunking" stories by "large out-of-town publications ... about how white working-class, Democratic voters were swayed by Trump and helped secure his victory in Pennsylvania and nationwide." Then, you cite Clinton's win by 12 points as though it's some exclamation point on a faulty narrative. Well, four years ago, Obama beat Romney in Ambridge by 26. (Add up the math from http://www.beavercountypa.gov/Depts/Elections/Documents/20121106ERP.htm) Aren't the data clear that Trump narrowed margins in several communities and flipped others statewide? (See https://billypenn.com/2016/11/09/how-donald-trump-won-pennsylvania-then-the-white-house/ among many examples.)

The article also goes out of its way to quote people who speak highly of Ambridge and its possibilities, but offers no differing opinions -- other than repeating a guy's quote from The New York Times. Aren't you curious how support for the Democratic candidate declined by 14 percentage points in four years? Sure, Ambridge isn't a GOP stronghold, and maybe "outsiders" are wrong to give that impression, but what is the ultimate value of a story that gives superficial treatment to the borough's challenges? Western Pennsylvania is littered with towns like Ambridge, where some locals think a nice coffee shop or antique shop will spur inspiring, turn-back-the-clock downtown redevelopment. In other words, this feels too much like a defense of Ambridge as a reliably Democratic-voting town instead of a clear-eyed consideration and analysis of the region's voting habits. Beaver County has 18,448 more Ds than Rs (http://www.dos.pa.gov/VotingElections/OtherServicesEvents/VotingElectionStatistics/Documents/2016%20Election%20VR%20Stats.pdf), but Trump won by 6 points (http://www.beavercountypa.gov/Depts/Elections/Documents/2016_FINAL_ELECTION_RESULTS_BY_RACE.pdf). Westmoreland County long has had a -- declining -- Democratic registration edge, but Republicans, generally, win there now. If City Paper is going to venture to Beaver County to explain it to us, shouldn't it endeavor to tell a deeper, fuller story?

Re: “As Donald Trump prepares to be sworn in as the 45th president, Ambridge isn’t waiting around for his help.

Long shot, but any insight who made the homemade 'Drumpf' sign in the cover photo? For the last 4 or so years I've seen homemade signs in that style planted all around the steel towns between Tarentum and Leechburg. Interesting to see it in Ambridge too. Dedicated USW member?

Re: “Three Pittsburgh psychics make predictions for 2016

So now we are in the new year 2017. No, Sanders did not become president. I feel it was the will of the people to elect him though. I did not see ALL of the corruption of the press and election process.

I am posting a detailed line up of the many predictions that were spot on and the few that were not for this article on my website intuitz.com.

I hope everyone is seeing the light, the process continues.

Re: “Pittsburgh is poised for growth for the first time in 60 years. Will the city’s African-American community grow with it?

The day has come where living in The Golden Triangle will be economically challenging to the working class. It has always been a desirable location. Gentrification is needed in order for the city to regain its status within the country. All that is needed now is for The Penguins to develop a world class site where The Civic Arena once stood. Gentrification will bring retail and commercial development to the city.

Re: “Martin Esquivel-Hernandez has been a rock for Pittsburgh’s Latino community but with deportation looming, he’s the one in need of support

What this man "deserves" is prison, never to see the light of day again. I'm so sick of these stories where the media (and other liberals) attempt to make this a sob story and to turn the criminal into a victim. Yes... it's unfortunate that he dropped a bunch of anchor babies here. But that's HIS mistake and we should never be held responsible for cleaning up somebody else's mistake. This guy had the option of coming into the U.S. legally - thousands of people do it every year. It is not impossible - it's not even difficult. Now he has two options as far as I'm concerned... stay in Mexico and never see your family again (sad perhaps, but not my fault), or bring your family home to Mexico with you.

In my opinion, you should get one free bus ride home the first time you break in through our borders. The second occurrence should buy you a life-long prison sentence with no possibility of parole and no visitation.

And for those who say "Mexico is just too dangerous for people to stay there", I have to ask... then why the hell are thousands of Americans vacationing there every month?? Sure, SOME parts are dangerous - we have the same situation here in the U.S. If you're going to move, how about you move to a safer part of your own country instead of invade ours? Or here's a thought... how about you work your ass off to better your OWN country the way that we did over the decades here in the U.S.?

Re: “Showing Colors

I just scrolled in to this article. It's 12/29/16.
I could only make it through Ms. Young's writing before I puked all over my keyboard. THIS is journalism?
Violence is on the rise, racism is on the rise, hate speech is now graffiti on walks and buildings YET, YET the black population is on the RISE.
What could Ms. Young possibly have missed in her deep compelling research?

Re: “Double or Nothing?

My daughter is 29 and was diagnosed with ADHD when she was 4. She's not been able to lead a normal happy life. When in school (Westley Highlands), stimulants, risperidal and other medications were prescribed along with behavioral therapy which leaned toward abusive. Today, my daughter wants nothing to do with medication, she's depressed angry and has social anxiety. PTSD is also a continuing factor after suffering a childhood where mental health providers were more interested in their own importance than actually providing guidance. I would like to see her live a happy life...I don't see it happening...
