Re: “OxyCide is supposed to make hospitals cleaner and safer for patients, but what about the staff that has to use it?

Oxycide is a dangerous chemical. Shame on those who run a health facility that is for peoples health while having employees use such a chemical. I have read many complaints from this chemical. I have seen situations where OSHA investigated and no problem was found.
My wife has had eye problems that presently have no cure. We have asked if it could be from the over exposure and use at Pekin Hospital (Unity Point Pekin). The doctors do not know. This stuff is bad news. If you think it kills c/diff..so does gasoline and fire.
If you have never used it. Or been exposed to it. Or, experienced the horrible side effects. How dare you say it is good stuff.
I think it is time a law suit was filed against the hospitals and the makers of that chemical. As well, any people involved in exposing workers to it.
My wife may lose her sight over this chemical. No recourse. No one held responsible. No one to stop this foolishness. Not even an intervention from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. 2017 or 1917 i ask you?
Sincerely. Pissed off in Pekin, Illinois.

Re: “How the Rusyns Could Save Civilization

Someone mentioned the lemko hall in yonkers n.y. As a child we used to attend dances etc at the hall. I remember an outside platform for dancing.

Re: “How the Rusyns Could Save Civilization

I grew up in St John's Byzantine Catholic Church in Lyndora, PA- part of Butler. I was surrounded by the culture and heard many stories of my ancestors coming to West Virginia to the coal mines then moving to Butler for the safer working conditions of the steel mills. We grew up making paska, halupki, halushki, cheregi. Adorning our Easter baskets for the church blessings with very specific items and including our best decorated pysangi. We visites St Macrenia every year. Grandma and Didi got us t-shirts with sayings like "me a Carpathian you're kidding" (which we had no idea what it meant) Mass was in "Slovak" but I think it was more regional than that. Thanks for a great article highlighting the uniqueness of our heritage

Re: “Life in Balance releases Om to Ohm on Koch Records

Life in Balance: Om to Ohm CD, I like the artwork used on the cover. Is the artwork copyrighted? If so, how do I get permission to use it on a tee-shirt for my personal use. I'm not interested in mass production or financial gain. Please let me know.

Re: “WWE robbed fans at Money in the Bank and rubbed it in on Smackdown

I really want Carmella to win now. After that Promo she needs to get it back, it was perfect. I also want Ellsworth to get involved again, just not unclip it. I want Ellsworth involved because I REALLY want to to see a Becky vs. Ellsworth at Summer Slam! It would be so satisfying to see her Blexplex his ass all over the ring!

This is a great tribute to our town. Very nicely written. Thank you.
How long will this be available on line to read? I'm having trouble sharing the CP longform version to Facebook.

Re: “Like so many former Western Pennsylvania company towns, Ford City is in dire need of a comeback

This article summarizes the plight of so many western PA towns: industrial decline resulting in job loss, misdirection and mismanagement in revitalization attempts, further population and quality of life decline..

Re: “Like so many former Western Pennsylvania company towns, Ford City is in dire need of a comeback

This might be worth reading if anyone outside of Ford City cared about Ford City.

Re: “Despite changing infrastructure needs in the Mon Valley, the Mon-Fayette Expressway refuses to die

This road is needed and really needs to go into Pittsburgh. All the tree huggers don't want the road. it is true the city of Pittsburgh is afraid that more businesses will got outside the city and the city wants to stop the road. whoever named this the zombie highway is a joke this road has constantly being built and there are still some steel mills that will benefit from this road. People want Pittsburgh to stay in the 1950's you go to other cities in this county and they are upgrading there infrastructure with better roads in Pittsburgh they fight everything. So maybe the rest of the country will just bypass Pittsburgh in general.

Re: “Advocates are concerned Port Authority’s new fare-check policy could lead to deportation of undocumented immigrants

Ruiz says "Port Authority's policies might not be enough to ensure LAW ABIDING undocumented immigrants avoid deportation". The only way they run your name is if you choose to ride but not pay... that is not LAW ABIDING. Pay for your ride and there is no problem

Re: “Advocates are concerned Port Authority’s new fare-check policy could lead to deportation of undocumented immigrants

Lots of cities have similar fare policies and have made commitments protect our immigrant neighbors by not checking immigration status. That's not the job of the transit police or fare control staff.

Re: “Advocates are concerned Port Authority’s new fare-check policy could lead to deportation of undocumented immigrants

Or just pay the fare and don't steal from others. Every time someone "forgets" to pay the fare, the Port Authority still has expenses that the rest of us who didn't "forget" have to bear.
