As a Pittsburgher born and bred, Dejan is about the only print journalist I've followed in recent months. His style is honest but fair and his sense of humor adds to his efforts. He doesn't take himself too seriously and is always willing to interact with his readers. Congratulations to Dejan and good luck! He is making a bold move and I believe it will pay off!

Re: “Organic farmer seeks to halt natural-gas facility

I guess all the Health problems all the experts who work with the chemicals are wrong... Just a coincidence... The smoking industry told their sales people smoking was safe too! Hello- they have an agenda! Their agenda is money not people- not anything else! Not even their employees. If this is so safe let the Twp supervisors or the farmers who want it put it on their land!

Re: “Trib sports writer Dejan Kovacevic leaves paper to start website

Dejan's columns and blogs are often interesting enough, but, wow, does he demonstrate an ego beyond belief, which intrudes in his writing. From his constant and shameless plugs for radio appearances and other media events to the recent (and more frequent) nasty comments directed at any participants in his chats who dare to disagree with him or question his views, Dejan has gone over the top with his perceived local celebrity. I always wondered how many "Press" colleagues were thrilled to see him depart their office; now, I frankly wonder if he simply wore out his welcome at the "Trib." Bob Smizik is still the standard for Pittsburgh sportswriters.

Re: “Trib sports writer Dejan Kovacevic leaves paper to start website

To Jorgensen, Jay Mariotti is not a bigger name than Dejan Kovacevik in 2014. Maybe in 2005, pre-allegations and when he was still on ESPN.
It's simple: Dejan has 51k Twitter followers ... Jay has 2k.

Re: “Trib sports writer Dejan Kovacevic leaves paper to start website

Um, good luck with that. Jay Mariotti, a much bigger name, tried this same concept and it was a bomb. Is Dejean really going to travel to road games? How's that gonna work when the Steelers and Pens are both on the road at the same time? How bout when the Pirates have a big story breaking and he's allegedly in Columbus covering the Pens?
Methinks it'll really be just Dejean bloviating from his couch on topics, doing no real reporting. So, on that basis, I'm out.

Re: “No announcements planned after Peduto promises swift investigation of Pride altercation

This is why we need police officers who actually LIVE in Pittsburgh - not hillbillies from the surrounding area who don't know how to behave in a city.

Re: “Results of this year's Pittsburgh Underground Music Awards

This was fixed in my opinion. Congrats to EVERYONE that won!!! & my opinion is only geared toward two catorgories....-male rap artist & -rap album/mixtape.... and when it comes to actual grind, work ethic, lyricism & consistency of a nominated "male rap artist" then -Quizzle The Cannon shoulda won OR actual view numbers, quality product nd popularity of a nominated "rap album/mixtape" then -The Underdog Pt.2 should have won! Thats just my honest opinion but i mean if you disagree then hit up datpiff or google or wherever else. Actual resumes and numbers dont lie. It was fixed nd personal favorites were awarded!

Re: “Organic farmer seeks to halt natural-gas facility

The chemical impact of these compressor stations is VERY VERY small, almost obsolete. Especially if they're built and maintained correctly. (I work at one of these sites)

Yes, they're loud. But if the developers re-work the site (build hills in all the right places), the noise can be drastically minimized.

This farmer needs to lighten up. It's not the end of the world. His cows will still taste yummy and even disciminating consumers (of which I am one) will still buy them.

Re: “Lyft, Uber ordered to cease operations (UPDATED)

The Taxi companies need a wakeup call. If you're soooo worried about Uber and Lyft maybe you should take a look at the service you offer. If you were reliable Uber and Lyft would be no threat to you. I don't live here but visit often. Getting a cab for a trip downtown is impossible. I would never have even tried Uber if the yellow cab was even close to being reliable. Now I am the biggest Uber fan. Go hide in the corner and stuck your thumb yellow cab. Let the better ride service do their job.

Re: “Brand New returns to Pittsburgh, after three year layoff

You should mention how Jesse changed the repeating line at the end of Soco to "I'm just jealous, cause you're young and in love."

It was a fitting and touching end to the set.

Re: “Mt Washington dog park to be removed

The City should absolutely not move or close this park. All dog owner need to unite and call the Mayor’s office and complain to 311.

Pat Ward is a cranky old lady that thinks Olympia park is her front yard. She calls the police all the time to complain about noise for anything going on in the park. She once called the police over the noise from a little league baseball game. Also her argument that the park is in a residential area is crazy. ALL CITY PARKS ARE IN RESDENTIAL AREAS!
