How Are Those Lights Coming? Baldwin Borough Manager John Barrett said at Tuesday night's Baldwin Council meeting that he continues to urge Duquesne Light officials to investigate the possibility of installing LED lights in Baldwin.

Hinish, a Baldwin grad, is recovering from the removal of a cancerous tumor.
Kurt Hinish has deep roots in Baldwin-Whitehall. A 1984 graduate of Baldwin High School, Hinish is a volunteer coach for the Baldwin-Whitehall Youth Football Association, and his wife, Tawnie, is a technology teacher for the Baldwin-Whitehall School District.

The Warriors took on the Dukes at Baldwin High School on Sunday.
Baldwin-Whitehall Patch reader and contributor Jeff Healy was at a youth football game between the Baldwin-Whitehall Warriors and Brentwood Dukes at Baldwin High School on Sunday. Healy got some shots of the Baldwin-Whitehall squad, which is made up of players not older than 11 years, and was kind enough to share them with us by uploading them to Patch's Pics & Clips gallery. Baldwin's 11-year-old team defeated Brentwood on Sunday, 36-6. You, too, can add photos and/or videos to our Pics & Clips gallery. Just follow directions on the Pics & Clips page. UPDATE: Reader Debbie Kemerer has added lots of photos, as well. --- Follow the Baldwin-Whitehall Patch on Facebook and Twitter. Sign up for the daily Baldwin-Whitehall newsletter.
