Re: “More than 31 percent of people living with HIV/AIDS are not getting adequate treatment

Hello, I'm here to say thanks and appreciate Dr okoh for helping me cure my HIV. My name is Xian Saon from Pulau Pinang, Malaysia. I was infected by someone i loved and he did not tell me he was HIV positive. i was searching through the internet and i saw a comment of someone speaking on how Dr okoh has helped her get rid of her HIV virus and i contacted Dr okoh and i was told what to do, to my greatest surprise after patiently going according to instructions given to me by Dr okoh, i went for a medical test and the result was that negative. Once again i want to say thank you Dr okoh for getting me cured from this deadly disease. You can contact Dr okoh if you have any problem with your health on his e-mail: dr.okohspellhome@gmail.com and phone +2348110745051.

Re: “Independent animal kennel under fire for euthanasia techniques

First of all hankbat 1, your comment is so pathetic. Guessing no animal never could stand to be around you ... Second of all , this "dog cop" needs to somehow make himself feel superior to animals, because in the human race, he is nothing and he knows it. He has to pick on helpless animals to make him feel better about himself.

Such a shame that Paula Brewer is a Transphobe. Sure, she'll focus on the "b" in the LGBT, but pretend or harras the T!!!

Re: “Local concert promoter catches heat for comments about anti-violence protests

I'm still waiting to see what Mr. Drusky is going to DO to show that he is committed to the things he stated in his apology. Actions speak louder than words, and all that, right?!? Let's see something, Mr. Drusky! This is your moment... ... ... ... ... ... ...

There's not an epidemic of white kids getting shot by black officers, you moron. Are you really that daft?

Re: “Local concert promoter catches heat for comments about anti-violence protests

Gilbert Collar. White 18 year old kid. Unarmed (clearly as he was naked). On drugs. Shot by a black police officer 2 years ago in Alabama. Any reason these protesters refuse to protest in this case? Any reason national media ignored it 2 years ago and still ignores it now? The officer was not indicted. Don't fall for race baiting. Don't fall for the media.

Re: “Local concert promoter catches heat for comments about anti-violence protests

Paul, I guarantee you that 99.9% of the protesters don't know any facts of the cases. The protests aren't about anything at all other than people disrupting others lives. How about instead of praising the criminals we teach people to not be criminals. Quit buying into the media hype. You are falling for race baiting. It's disgusting and media needs held accountable. Try looking up the Broken Windows policy in NYC. See why it started and see what the impact has been in the amount of lives saved. Educate yourself. "wackos do what they do." is the same as stating you don't care about the lives of police and firemen.

Re: “Local concert promoter catches heat for comments about anti-violence protests

Brett; They werent there because that was wackos doing what wackos do. These protests have nothing to do with that. You need to live in the real world and see what these protests are about before making one comment about them.

Re: “Local concert promoter catches heat for comments about anti-violence protests

Brian Drusky has always been the most charitable person I know. He always will be. The flack he has taken over his comments is unwarranted. I'm guessing if you quizzed protesters 99.9% of them wouldn't know any facts of either case they are protesting about. Where were these protesters when a state trooper was ambushed in PA? Where were they when 2 officers were murdered while eating lunch in a pizza shop in Vegas? How about in the 90s when an officer in Cleveland pulled a kid over and was shot point blank with a shotgun? Where were they when the sicko on Pittsburgh a few years back had his mom answer the door awhile he shot the cops from upstairs? Where were they when a man set a house on fire, called firemen and then shot them?

Re: “Silent Vote: Tea-party Congressman Keith Rothfus is seeking a second term, so how come nobody seems to care?

Realize there are a lot people who are leftist liberal, middle, moderates, libratarians, conservatives. And these people fall in all combinations of categories. I personally am a fiscal conservative (who's paying for it, nobody lets me run a deficit like the government, they'll come take my stuff) and moderate on social matters. He is not ideal, but at least he tries to keep my hard earned money in my pocket. And it is a trade off, as I do not agree with several of his social statements. Painting any person with a wide stereotype brush is ignorant. Any democrat who wants to hold his hard earned money would consider this guy. Here's why- There are few in Washington who want to hold down spending, but plenty of moderate to liberal congressmen on social issues. This trade off works. See the bigger picture. We need to keep the fiscal conservatives to keep our cash.

Re: “Less is More: Eve Picker is going to fill the city's vacant lots — one tiny house at a time

I've met Eve and she is one tough business person and determined. But being determined and focused cannot turn the impossible into the possible.
City codes requirements prohibit the spirit of a mobile TH… thus much of the cost savings. A TH needs to be on wheels and that in PA is an RV. One cannot live in an RV all year in PA.
Eve wants to develop vacant lots into homes that one cannot usually afford. There is no investment value and thwarts the independence and freedom of TH living….
Portland OR is a great model for housing the homeless, maybe she should focus on that instead of being a profiteer.

Re: “Less is More: Eve Picker is going to fill the city's vacant lots — one tiny house at a time

I am very interested in this Vision. I have researched many tiny home designs, and have found that the biggest limitation is not with the house, but with a community willing to support the idea of tiny homes. Yeah, Garfield! As a single senior, who would love to also go car-less (as I once was in Philly), is there any vision to also extend a car-sharing program into Garfield? Garfield could become a model of the new approach to urban dwelling. Small, locally-owned businesses, in a mixed use approach, would also add even more vitality.

Re: “Small Business Saturday: For locally owned stores, holiday sales are a large part of a successful year

Support for local businesses is great! However, I find it a bit ironic since providing free parking is not a policy that helps local businesses! There are so many studies that have showcased the negative externalities that underpriced parking has. Putting aside the effects on the environment (increased air-pollution from cruising for parking since underpriced goods lead to shortages and parking shortage leads to cruising and more driving), free parking will lead to low turnover for each parking spot and eventually local businesses will have less customers coming in. And during holidays, market prices for parking are needed even more because of the even further increased demand! Subsidies such as local port authority rides or more frequent bus routes, subsidized bike rentals etc. might have been more helpful. This is actually a bit contradicting to the (great) effort of the mayor to make Pittsburgh a model city for bike-oriented transportation; on the one hand bikes are supposedly the epicenter of the transportation policies but on the other hand free parking is offered to people to support them use their cars more....

Re: “Less is More: Eve Picker is going to fill the city's vacant lots — one tiny house at a time

I am converting a small shed (10 by 16) into a tiny house in Preston County WV and plan to build one from scratch on wheels starting in the Spring of 2015. I see the Tiny House Movement as a solution to the housing issue as well as one way to cope with climate change. The tiny house uses less energy, is more adaptable to renewables and encourages it's occupants to have a smaller carbon footprint in every way. My daughter lives in Garfield and I'm going to be interested in visiting the tiny house construction sites whenever they get underway. www.carriebstone.com

That mention of Mr. Rapier being "in his 30s" is not going over well with his younger friends who are in their 40s. Way to go basic fact checking, CITY PAPER! =^)

Re: “Small Business Saturday: For locally owned stores, holiday sales are a large part of a successful year

When you shop local stores, your money goes 100% into your local economy! Marketing, community involvement and professional services are all beneficiaries. I love local shopowners; they are committed to our community, in a way that national chains are rarely able or willing to support. If you love a locally owned store, bar, or restaurant, please visit! We are here because of you; and it is truly our pleasure to take care of you!
Enjoy your Thanksgiving Day!
