You might as well cc. You are already in violation of Whitehall code with the 38 cats you alreadyRead More have.

Baldwin Dad, your the one with the 37 cats as your neighbors in Baldwin have been complaining aboutRead More the stench that comes from your home.

Having had two of my kids spend time in Neonatal Intensive Care at Magee immediately after beingRead More born, I can't begin to come up with the words to express my gratitude for their work. Such a small gesture, like their blankets, can make all the difference in literally maintaining sanity in that environment as a parent. We still have both of the boys blankets from their stays. My youngest still uses his.

Terrific stuff.

when my son was 2, we had to make an er visit that turned into a transport to Childrens that turnedRead More into an admission.....he was not able to speak yet, but a volunteer at St. Clair's ER gave him a beautiful blankey that I was able to wrap him in for comfort during this scary time. That blanket sits proudly in our family room. What a wonderful show of love and compassion!

The only person who is delusional on the Patch is Ned. I have learned to read typonese but othersRead More can't. Ned go back under your rock.
Ned Hardt October 12, 2013 at 08:35 am
FYI, typonese, internet speak, is not equivalent to bad grammar, and all spelling errors are notRead More internet speak. If you, as you repeatedly claim, have learned this, you should not be confusing the two.
Margaret French October 12, 2013 at 09:13 am
I have to agree with Ned on that. There is a difference.

Hope no one in my neighborhood adopts him.
Frank September 29, 2013 at 07:53 pm
Well, that's the most idiotic comment I've read on this Patch to date.
Baldwin Dad September 29, 2013 at 11:36 pm
I am honored Frank, but perhaps you should spend more time on here. As a father, I would prefer notRead More to have a dog that has killed before in my neighborhood regardless of his training. I really could care less if you find that idiotic.
Baldwin Dad July 21, 2013 at 11:39 pm
I am going to volunteer so I can get an Isaly's chipped ham sammich. "chipping makes itRead More fresher, hammier, tastier"
cc July 24, 2013 at 07:00 am
Baldwin Dad, hopes they bring Isaly's chipped ham for you. I'll be taking 20 lbs of Isaly'sRead More chipped ham down to my son's that week. People down in Va Beach don't know what they are missing with not having chipped ham. When you try to even get pressed ham down there chipped they look at you like your nuts and won't chip it for you as they say it takes to much time to cut.

Bob, Wish the Patch had articles about all the fairs at the different churches though out allRead More communities. I forgot about St Thomas Moore till you mentioned it.
Ned Hardt June 23, 2013 at 02:35 pm
thanks for the St. Al's article, Bob. Hope they had a very successful event, only one night wasRead More marred by rain, and even then there appeared to be quite a crowd at the carnival grounds.

The young children will be traumatized by the boxing show??? Maybe we should rethink the the mockRead More car accident.
10-4GB June 10, 2013 at 05:05 pm
Wow, that was an odd call. It would have created a bigger crowd and boxing is a sport, it isn'tRead More like there was street fighting going on or something. I guess they decided to error on the side of caution, as in not wanting to "offend" anyone. But personally I think it would have been a great crowd draw!
M8TGMAN July 3, 2013 at 02:25 pm
Yes don't ever offend anyone...Ohh the lawsuits will be a flyin... This is the problem today, ourRead More kids are pansies and can't do anything but sit in front of the TV and play video games and watch senseless cartoons...Kids don't play outside in the woods anymore or do much of anything constructive...When I was young me and my 3 brothers would leave the house in the morning and not come home till dinner time...We didn't need anyone to amuse us as we were building dams on Weyman creek and catching frogs and snakes...Building tree houses in the woods and riding bycicles everywhere...Seriously, what is going on with parents and kids today ???

Congratulation to Alex and the Baldwin 105 Fire Company for a job well done...
Baldwin concerned September 22, 2012 at 01:42 am
Awesome job to Fire Fighter Vogel, 105 crew is a good crew, sometimes our heros run into trouble butRead More in all when the bells go off, these are the people they truly are, when they run through that door and put that gear on and honnor there title as a Baldwin 105 fire fighter. Its nice to see a good post. I hope people understand where I'm coming from.

These "haunted" sites are definitely a popular thing in the PGH area! the precursor toRead More Hundred Acres was the Haunted Yard, which originated on Becks Run Rd, and later moved to Bethel Park. Their volunteers rode a hearse in the Library Halloween parade, blasting tunes like Thriller and Ghostbusters from a big megaphone speaker. After ten years of very successful fundraising for Children's Hospital Free Care Fund and other charities, the Haunted Yard closed and donated their supplies (and some of their many volunteers) to the Hundred Acres group.
Robert Edward Healy, III October 9, 2012 at 08:00 pm
Tomorrow, Oct. 10, Hundred Acres Manor will donate all of its gate proceeds to benefit the family ofRead More Sgt. Perry Vahaly, a local SWAT and police officer who died in a tragic accident on Sept. 1. A big contributor to the South Hills community, Vahaly leaves behind a wife and six children.

It would be nice if they can do some kind of summer programming for the kids so that they don'tRead More loose so much over the summer.

Call animal control on the neighbors that are leaving their cats run. Go to Baldwin Township andRead More tell them you want a leash law for cats.
Debbie O'Rourke July 20, 2012 at 12:38 pm
Maybe we all need to advocate at the state level to adjust the laws to empower our localRead More authorities.

The spayneuter program is tremendous and having cats around is a great advantage. They keep theRead More mouse and rat population out of our neighborhoods. I would much rather see cats and kittens than rats and mice but we do need to make sure the cats are spayed/neutered or they will overpopulate.
