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!

Same sad excuses, same delusional lies. cc, you must be a very pitifully sad person to continuallyRead More lash out as you do, with really nothing factual ever to say, just sad sad unsuccessful attempts to aggravate and/or enrage others to your level? Why? What does this behavior gain you other than a reputation as an internet nutcase?
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.

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.

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.
Sandy Carlucci August 9, 2012 at 01:25 pm
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.

Terry I agree with you and here is one of the Ordnance from Baldwin Township: §2-201. HarboringRead More of Animals. No person shall keep or harbor any dog, cat, or other animal in the Township so as to create offensive odors, excessive noise, or unsanitary conditions which are a menace to the health, comfort, or safety of the public, or otherwise permit the commission or existence of a nuisance as defined herein. (Ord. 330, 4/5/1988, §1) §2-203. Other Nuisances. 1. Any dog, cat, or other animal which scratches, digs, or defecates upon any lawn, tree, shrub, plant, building, or any other public or private property, other than the property of the owner or person in charge or control of such animal, is hereby declared to be a nuisance. 2. No person being the owner or in charge or control of any dog, cat, or other animal shall permit such animal to commit a nuisance on any school grounds, city park, or other public property, or upon any private property other than that of the owner or person in charge or control of such dog, cat, or other animal without the permission of the owner of such property. Where the owner or person in charge or control of such animal immediately removes all feces deposited by such animal and disposes of the same in a sanitary manner, such type of nuisance shall be considered abated. (Ord. 330, 4/5/1988, §§3 and 4)

§2-204. Exemptions. Persons with defective eyesight or hearing while relying upon a dogRead More specifically trained for these purposes shall be exempt from compliance with this Section. (Ord. 330, 4/5/1988, §5) §2-205. Penalties. Any person, firm or corporation who shall violate any provision of this Part, upon conviction thereof, shall be sentenced to pay a fine of not more than $1,000 plus costs and, in default of payment of said fine and costs, to a term of imprisonment not to exceed 30 days. Each day that a violation of this Part continues shall constitute a separate offense. (Ord. 330, 4/5/1988, §6; as amended by Ord. 427, 4/4/2006)

Predatory Behavior of Cats http://www.perfectpaws.com/help3.html Understanding Your Cat's PredatoryRead More Behavior Cats are born with a hunting and chasing instinct. But they are not necessarily born hunters that kill for food. Killing and eating prey are generally learned behaviors. Hunger will not automatically teach a cat to kill. A cat can be a skillful mouse killer and yet never eat a single mouse or even desire to eat one. Kittens are programmed from birth to chase. Through play, they develop the coordination and timing needed to successfully capture their target. They learn to adjust their speed to the speed of moving objects. They learn to gauge distance by pouncing. Play gives the kitten a chance to learn to make judgments by experience. The mother cat teaches her kittens to kill to eat. Her first lesson consists of bringing home dead prey and consuming it in front of the kittens. Soon they learn to join in. At the end of this stage, she brings the dead prey home and leaves it for the kittens to eat on their own. Cats will not only do this for their own litter, but for another cat's kittens as well. Many cats (especially spayed females) will provide this lesson to their human owners. Thus, bringing home dead prey and dropping it at our feet. You can go and finish reading why cats do this as it is a long article.

Thank you to the people that parked in handicap parking spots today so that people like I who useRead More oxygen and are in a wheel chair could not attend. It is very thoughtful of you to take handicap parking space. When I asked you where your handicap plaque was, you told me to go somewhere. I hope you enjoy the ticket that you received on your car and enjoy paying for it also. It was a shame that the police wouldn't have the car towed, but I do want to thank him for putting a ticket on the car. Since I couldn't find a close parking spot, my husband and I and grandchildren went home and they were disappointed that they were looking forward to the day.
JustMe June 3, 2012 at 07:07 pm
cc, I'm sorry that this happened to you and your family. There are people out there that don't careRead More about anyone but themselves. People shouldn't park in handicap spots unless they have a handicap tag or plaque. I wish they would of towed the cars for your sake so you and your family could of enjoyed the day.
Robert Edward Healy, III April 4, 2012 at 06:26 pm
Library Director Joyce Chiappetta has confirmed that the show will go on as planned despite how manyRead More tickets sell by the end of today. We regret the misinformation.
