What gives with The Patch? They used to post a lot of info on Jackie and just stopped. You can only Read Moreread so much about bake sales and local talent contests. Jackie is the biggest thing that Pine-Richland has got going. Was there a problem?

Jackie's gonna appear on PBS Sunday night at 8:00 Eastern at the National Capitol to celebrateRead MoreMemor ial Day. Not a word in the Patch about this. What's wrong with you people?

Nothing about Jackie Evancho's appearance in the PBS National Memorial Day concert. Now, there isRead Moreno thing about her new single release, "The Rains of Castamere", from "Game of Thrones". Why has the Patch ignored Jackie, an international star in their own backyard?

Thank you for your service Mr. Rothfus. We need to look at North Dakota and Texas to learn how toRead Morem ake our natural resources work for us. The national economy can only change for the better from improving the local economy. Utilizing our local natural resources will provide so many primary and secondary and trickle down jobs. Western Pennsylvania is packed full with hard working, family oriented, good people that would make that endeavor a success. We need to tap our resources responsibly and immediately. We can make Western PA and the Pittsburgh region an example of success. From our Education Facilities, Medical Industry and Manufacturing, we have everything going in our favor. We just need someone like you to get in there and make them let us prosper. Thank you for all you do sir.

Sounds good until you look at the republican record in the house, their love of the rich (NO TAXESRead MoreO N THE RICH, PLEASE, they pay our campaign funds and buy us our seats!!!) and opposition to anything to benefit the health and wellbeing of almost everyone else, not to mention seeming to just love guns and the murder and mayhem they cause in the wrong hands by being totally unwilling (as are many democrats) to pass decent strict gun control laws that will keep them out of the hands of criminals and psychologically dangerous people. So Mr. Rothfus's activities in the direction of training folks are fine and dandy, but where is the support for health care for all? It is good that he seems now to support extending unemployment insurance, and it's nice to talk about jobs available, BUT, there are a lot more people out of work than there are jobs available...so where are the figures on that?

Jackie did perform at Carnegie Hall, just last week, on December 5th. She sang five songs, andRead Morethen she performed the closing finale "O Holy Night" accompanied by Sir James Galway (the flutist), and they were backed by a full orchestra and a 200+ voice choir. The name of the concert was An American Christmas Carol. It was organized by Tim Janis, who also performed in addition to other musicians and singers.

Carnegie Hall, NYC. I was hoping it was Pittsburgh when they first mentioned it.

Please consider Gloria & Lenny Bytner. I mention both because, well: they are a team. GloriaRead Morei s a wee woman who heads up the Herts & Hands group that makes blankets (and more) for hospice patients. She holds her sewing group at Crossroads Presbyterian Church in Wexford, PA on Rt 910. Lenny is her husband, a veteran who proudly served in the Army. *Even when Lenny had to go through, recently, chemotherapy they continued to volunteer to help others. They have used their own funds...and trust me: They have little to spare. They have no family in the Pittsburgh area..in fact they quietly go about their lives serving our country, our town...doing whatever they can. They are the people you would NOT notice if they walked by you on the street. They spend little on themselves...very little. And yet these peaceful people in the last quarter of their lives continue to help others. Lenny learned how to work a sewing machine so he could make blankets for other vets that were in Hospice. The group is now run out of money...THAT is how great the need. I can not tell you that this is the "biggest" non profit or perhaps even largest effort that you have been sent for your Hometown Hero, but I can promise you this: It is people such as Gloria and Lenny Bytner that exemplify what this season and what love of our fellow man should look like: Simple, honest, hardworking, and always there when times are the hardest whether that be on a battle field or in your last days on this earth. They have no children, and it would be fantastic if their efforts were recognized. Thank you for your consideration. My number is 724-259-2066 and e-mail is stacy@cburris.com.

I agree. Why does PR patch have articles about Highlands, New Kensington and other areas? It wasRead Morea lways great to hear about Pine-Richland events and news. If you go on the PRSD website there is so much going on with students and organizations within our community to share. Please let everyone know about these things to encourage attendance and congratulations.
