Re: “Natural-gas proponents and renewable-energy advocates disagree on fracking’s potential to grow jobs in Pittsburgh

Jobs, jobs, jobs is a myth. Green jobs are outpacing fossil fuel jobs everywhere now.
But I'm commenting because the first paragraph is inaccurate. Environmental groups aren't doing the studies. Researchers are doing peer-reviewed studies that environmental groups cite. You must haven been thinking of the industry that pays for its own studies to come to its desired conclusions.

Re: “Local comic Day Bracey clashes online with alt-right comedian Owen Benjamin over canceled Pittsburgh show

Owen, seeing you go off in this thread is amazing. It totally makes you look like a completely rational and reasonable human being...One that is not at all concerned with the fact that his "career" is based entirely off of appealing to the lowest common denominator by exploiting flavor of the week controversy through thinly veiled racism/sexism.

Watching this guy completely crack publicly has been so gratifying.

Re: “Ligonier Theater

We just love our local theatre! It's a great place to see all the latest movies shown with their state-of-the-art laser projector! Plus, they do live musicals, as well! If you're in town and looking for something to do on a weekend, check out this wonderful family-owned theatre!

Awesome shop! The owners have great style, and I always find something I love there! Whether it's art, home goods, a great vegetarian cookbook, or something else, there's always something new to see! Highly recommended on your way through Ligonier!

Re: “Allegory Gallery

Although unable to visit in person, I have ordered online many times and have experienced nothing less than high quality customer service. My purchases were carefully packaged and sent out in a timely manner. I have had the pleasure of conversing with both owners of this shop via social media and have found them to be not only kind and generous but also very fun and quite likeable. Above all Mr. Thornton's original art work is very unique and special. Someday... if I ever find myself traveling in that area, this shop will definitely be on my list of places to go .

Re: “Allegory Gallery

Walk into this store and you immediately feel the positive energy and magic. The owners are always ready to help and encourage. Their hard work is evident in this beautiful space. This is my go to place for inspiration, art, jewelry supplies and a kind word. Although its easy to purchase online, sometimes you just need to see, touch and feel an item to connect to it. I highly recommend this lovely store.

What a find! I love this shop and spending time there. I wish I had more time for their classes and make-and-take days.

Re: “Allegory Gallery

I have been going to Allegory Gallery since they opened. I was very excited to finally have a local beading store and have been a satisfied customer from the start. The owners, Andrew and William are wonderful people. They are always bringing and creating new items, have fabulous trunk shows a number of times a year as well as some tremendous art exhibits. The classes - every Monday and Wednesday are wonderful. The teachers are terrific and these classes bring local beaders together who have now become good friends. These Monday and Wednesday classes are always free - you only pay for supplies, and are as appropriate for beginners as they are for expert beaders. They have also brought in some world renowned artists to teach special classes. These are always well attended - usually sold out, and we learn new techniques that take our jewelry making to another level. Ligonier is a lovely town and I highly recommend visiting it and stopping by Allegory Gallery. You wont be disappointed.

Re: “Pittsburgh foundations, journalists call out Pittsburgh Post-Gazette for editorial defending Trump's 'Shithole Countries' remarks many have called racist

People are writing racist comments to the PG that are allowed to remain without consequence. The threats made to African Americans is unacceptable. Please send Complaints to made naacp.pittsburg@verizon.net Thank You Pittsburgh!

Re: “Allegory Gallery

I travel in from eastern PA just to buy supplies, or participate in events and visit this store. Allegory Gallery has many unique beads, local art and displays. They support the community and the store has always had happy customers shopping or learning beading techniques during the store hours while I was there. Love this western PA gem!

Re: “Pittsburgh foundations, journalists call out Pittsburgh Post-Gazette for editorial defending Trump's 'Shithole Countries' remarks many have called racist

The comment section allows racist comments, and if anyone complains about it, they are dismissed from the sight. This is the most racist newspaper in America, and the people in charge of the comments section are pushing white nationalism.. Someone needs to contact the NAACP at naacp.pittsburg@verizon.net and start with that. Our city is not about this sick and disgusting bigotry. The Post Gazette Opinion Section is run by a White Nationalist, who does whatever she pleases, and should be investigated now!!! Gail Young

Re: “Allegory Gallery

I live in VA and actually drive up there just to visit this beadshop. I also buy from them online. Their classes are wonderful. The owners are wonderful people and they have a great staff. I have gotten to know many local regular customers through the classes, online groups, and bead design challenges. They are all great to interact with and I feel like I am part of a community. It is a small, lovingly curated shop--not some sort of bead superstore so if that is what you are looking for, move along. I love the art they have, as well as how they showcase bead-making as an art form.

Re: “Allegory Gallery

I love Allegory Gallery! The owners and staff are so warm and welcoming. It is my happy place. I didn't think I was a very artistically creative person,but the people at Allegory Gallery have really helped me to tap in to my creativity.
