Re: “Why can’t local homeowners include “green” attributes in real-estate listings?

Barbara Kohl is hindering marketing and appraised value of these homes. The MLS is behind the current market and the movement to implement green features has been around for more than a few years. See the Green The MLS website for examples that have been in place for years. When home buyers start using agents outside their MLS, it might send a message. CCI -Get Energy Smarter in Pittsburgh held two events in October. I spoke at both events to agents and a few builders about valuing and marketing green features. It was clear these agents were frustrated about the MLSs lack of proper fields to allow better marketing and appraised value. Before I arrived in Pittsburgh, I searched their MLS public side for a home with energy efficient or green features and none could be found. How is an appraiser supposed to find comparable sales when valuing these homes. Make a difference Pittsburgh and dont give up making your MLS updates. Your customers deserve the best marketing.

Funny thing though, Kendall was right. His word's STILL ring true.

Re: “Johnstown progressives are sick of national media painting them solely as Trump Country

This is great work. I hope that Ryan Deto or some other intrepid CP reporter will do a follow up into the wilds of places like Cranberry to interview Trump voters there. I would read that with delight.

Re: “Johnstown progressives are sick of national media painting them solely as Trump Country

I grew up in Johnstown but haven't lived there since leaving in 1985 for better job opportunities elsewhere. The Politico story has stirred up a lot of commentary from current Johnstowners and among my fellow ex-pats, for sure. I've always known that the city isn't completely populated by bigots yearning for the past, but am very glad to see them speaking out now.

Re: “Ranking Pittsburgh’s contributions to pro basketball

What credible list of local NBA talent can exclude Norm Van Lier? The pride of Midland, 3-time NBA all-star and 1971 assist leader, " Storming Norman" would have at least given you a nice, even Top 10 list.

Re: “Impeach Trump

Your paper has become nothing but a liberal rag and a waste of time and space for people who actually have a brain and are not brain washed such as yourselves.

Re: “Johnstown progressives are sick of national media painting them solely as Trump Country

Happy to see these responses. The attitudes displayed in the article, AND the apparent inability to accept change of any size, shape, flavor, would lead the rest of the aware world to write off Johnstown. They're hateful and stubborn? OK, then, be that way, and buh-bye.
But if those voices are truly not representative, speak up and speak out. America is NOT a White Christian country, and neither coal nor buggy whips are coming back to fuel an economic engine.

Re: “Johnstown progressives are sick of national media painting them solely as Trump Country

As one who grew up in Johnstwn I was sickened at the notice that we, African Americans, do not work. These are the same people who worked with my father, brothrrs in the steel. I am sick and tired of reading stories by racists. It should stop. Steel mills are not coig back. They support Trump no matter because he is the Chief RACIST in the Whie Housr.

Re: “Johnstown progressives are sick of national media painting them solely as Trump Country

Speaking for my self only, knowing a few people in the article, I am embarrassed for our area. Unfortunately he took a small sample from our area and made them our voice.
In his first article, he found these people outside the rally. And as we all know, they tend to be VERY vocal.
The follow up has the area talking. Which, to me is a good thing. We need to speak louder than our racist counterparts in this area.
I am as much to fault as many. I tend to speak my mind,in small circles, not wanting to make waves. But, it is time to flood Johnstown again. This time with our outrage. Our community is better, smarter more rounded, more grounded than the persons he choose for his article.
We, collectively are not as narrrow minded as the sample he pulled.

Re: “Some of Pittsburgh’s Republican suburbs are turning blue

We in suburban Pittsburgh and all over the country have become much more politically active and aware. Toomey and Murphy have totally abandoned us in their pursuit of Republican Draconian policy. Thank God we're done with Murphy. The blue wave will continue. The Orange Moron has embarrassed us and taken us back to the 1900s. We will not go back!!! #PERSIST #RESIST

Re: “Sign the petition, call your Congressional reps, let’s impeach Donald Trump

Yo Pgh City Paper, I believe it is time to put Hillary, Billy Boy, Mueller, Comey, and that Muslim traitor Obama in prison, yesterday. They sold the Russia"s 20% of our uranium supplies and no one is talking about said sell. The Clinton Foundation received 145 million dollars and Congress was by pasted by those criminals....That's TREASON! Snowflakes are you still continuing to view/listen to FAKE news. No wonder you have no clue what that Witch (she is one in real life) Hillary is up to. Snowflake's have you looked at the stock market, unemployment rate? Some of the 80,000 companies that left during the traitor Obama's 8 long long long years are starting to come back. So you snowflakes instead of asking, "do you want fries with your sandwich" will have an opportunity to work at a real career, after you graduate. It's time to wake up snowflake's and leave the DNC plantation!
