Re: “Fun with presidential campaign fundraising emails

As a moderate agonizing over less than inspiring candidates and the endless news cycles, I am trying to put this in perspective. For the issues I care about, now is not time to champion them, at least not with these two. I think Clinton will be handcuffed and Trump would ride the fence enough to drive the traditional conservatives crazy, therefore the best moderate choice. Holding my nose and voting Trump.

Re: “Alternative History: The lessons learned by the demise of In Pittsburgh Newsweekly

Three things stand out in my memory of InPgh: One, the ongoing series "On the bus with Kathy Jo," one woman's experience with riding public transit in the city. Two, an interview with Christina Aguilera, about practicing singing on the 11C Perry Highway as a kid, but more recently, being able to sleep in her own bed when her tour stopped here. Three, an interview with someone about casino gambling, where the interviewee was eating a sandwich. All the lip smackings and other food noises were included, which is what made it so memorable. But the content of that story was spot-on, and worth digging up, if you can find it.

Been listening to Kevin's shows since his earliest days at WYEP. He reps the very best that community radio can offer. Keep 'em spinning Mr. Amos.

Re: “Troy Hill’s Hooligans are injecting new blood, new philosophies on revitalization into the neighborhood

Troy Hill was a fantastic place to grow up. what a beautiful view of the city and river. Sidewalks for those that enjoy walking or bicycling. A few baseball fields and playgrounds for the children. Some of the most amazing people are from that small German community. I never understood the attraction to Southside or Lawrenceville but I definitely understand the attraction about Troy Hill. Many beautiful big homes that at one point were being split up into low income rental units and now it seems those homes are being renovated. If we didn't want the country life with animals I would really consider living where I grew up. There are so many families that never left and continued to push to keep it a great place to live. I feel Troy Hill is a great place to invest into properties it's up and coming! Once a Troy Hill boy now just a Troy Hillbilly:)

I have lived on Troy Hill for 25 years and I have no intention of leaving. I walk around Troy Hill, down to the trail and onto the island. People are friendly and I can see such a positive turn around and that makes my soul smile! Love to meet the 'Hooligans'!

Re: “Troy Hill’s Hooligans are injecting new blood, new philosophies on revitalization into the neighborhood

Having been in Troy Hill for 30 years and having moved there from the East End, I can honestly say that it is a great place to live and garden! the Hooligans make it delightful, the views are awesome and the neighbors/friends are the best of all. We have gained nearly 50 friends that love to socialize, eat great food, bowl, walk, learn new things, bicycle, stand up paddle, boat on the Allegheny and are fun to be around! what's NOT to love?

Re: “Troy Hill’s Hooligans are injecting new blood, new philosophies on revitalization into the neighborhood

Anyone who thinks Troy Hill is inherently more dangerous than any other place has obviously not been there in a while or believes rumors too easily. I lived in Troy Hill for two years until a little over a year and a half ago.

I'm from suburban Virginia and had never lived in a city before-- I was nervous! But the people of Troy Hill were always always friendly and helpful and I never felt like I was in danger even once! The community very actively looks after each other and keeps up-to-date on the goings-on there. I miss it every single day.

I was born and raised in troy hill and live there now. I bought a property there and love it! I have a young child who lives taking walks there, loves the ball fields, and the spray park. Everyone I encounter with in troy hill is friendly and I've never feared anyone or anything. My family lives troy hill!

Troy Hill is a super cool place. I've been up here a little over 2 years. It was totally off the radar for quite awhile.
