Re: “How the Rusyns Could Save Civilization

I highly recommend the Rusyn history and language 3wk course offered to those who speak English ,offered yearly in June, in Presov, Slovakia. I learned about it by listening to Dean Poloka's radio program at 73WPIT on Sundays at 2:30 est..

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: “Pet Cause

It is really a heart breaking moment for a owner to lose their most lovable pet in front of their eyes. Even they get into trauma after such incidence. To avoid such circumstances you can take them for regular check up and can follow the guidelines prescribed by your Vets. You can also refer to on line assistance for the same like I prefer trifexis - https://www.petcarerx.com/trifexis/22843 for prevention of heartworm as it shows results within seconds. However, before its consumption, dont forget to consult your vet.

Re: “Showing Colors

I just scrolled in to this article. It's 12/29/16.
I could only make it through Ms. Young's writing before I puked all over my keyboard. THIS is journalism?
Violence is on the rise, racism is on the rise, hate speech is now graffiti on walks and buildings YET, YET the black population is on the RISE.
What could Ms. Young possibly have missed in her deep compelling research?

Re: “Double or Nothing?

My daughter is 29 and was diagnosed with ADHD when she was 4. She's not been able to lead a normal happy life. When in school (Westley Highlands), stimulants, risperidal and other medications were prescribed along with behavioral therapy which leaned toward abusive. Today, my daughter wants nothing to do with medication, she's depressed angry and has social anxiety. PTSD is also a continuing factor after suffering a childhood where mental health providers were more interested in their own importance than actually providing guidance. I would like to see her live a happy life...I don't see it happening...

Re: “How the Rusyns Could Save Civilization

It was very interesting - to me as a Rusyn living in Slovakia - to read this article about American Rusyns indeed. Thank you !

Re: “Your Pittsburgh cat needs a Pittsburgh toy, like a felt pierogie

I'm surprised that local stores like Pittsburgh Center for Creative Reuse and Artist and Craftsman aren't mentioned as go to stores for these supplies, but corporate giants are! Great project though.

Re: “Tarentum man carries on the legacy of ‘That Guy with the Birds’

Wonderful to see! I saw John on a few occasions doing shows in different places. As an owner of 14 birds myself, I had great admiration for him. So happy to see Kenny carry on his legacy.

Re: “We Take Brunot in the Morning!

I'm a descendant of the Cumming family.....3 generations of which had owned and lived on the Brunot Island prior to it being sold....the land was farmed and the produce taken to market in Manchester and Allegheny City. I grew up listening to stories about life on the island...the family is no relation to Fortescue Cuming to my knowledge.

Re: “Turning the Tables

Hey, very nice site. I came across this on Google, and I am stoked that I did. I will definitely be coming back here more often. Wish I could add to the conversation and bring a bit more to the table, but am just taking in as much info as I can at the moment. Thanks for sharing.

Re: “Mike Wysocki’s Pittsburgh Pirates PNC Park 15th-Anniversary Team

Actually, now that I am waking up, AJ could easily replace either Maholm or Benson.

Re: “Mike Wysocki’s Pittsburgh Pirates PNC Park 15th-Anniversary Team

I'd go with the one year of Volquez over Benson.

Re: “Replanting Cranberry

This is an old post I see,I'm interested in the 18+/- acre spot at the corner of little creek and rt.19.
I had a vision last night. Let's call it a spiritual awakening because He literally woke me up out of my sleep to start sketching plans for a business venture that has been the desire of my heart for a long,long time. With that being said,can you please give me a call and let me know what your vision is for that piece of property? My name is Anthony...724-841-7532. I know what my vision is and I would just like to know if I can make my dream and/or life purpose come true.
