Come And Get It

Two of our favorite things are food and emails. 

Yesterday, we got both in one! 


Here is a picture. 

If it doesn't explain everything, we promise to give a brief overview in a bit. 

Click on it, to make it bigger. 

(That's what he said.) 

So yeah. 

There is a spaghetti dinner this Saturday, from 1pm to 8pm. 

It's just 7 bucks a person, and there will be cool stuff to do, other than just eat delicious vittles. 

Please stop by. 

Events like this help our volunteer firepeople raise funds. 

So go eat. 

But not too much.  

These people aren't made of sausages and meatballs. 

(That's what she said.)

Should we allow you to try and figure out what the FF in today's title stands for, for a few more minutes? 

It could be... 

Fancy Feast 
Funky Foot 
Fat Face 
Four Fingers 
Foo Fighters 
Fart Flame 

but it's none of those

It stands for Fall Festival. 

The yearly festival is this Saturday, staring at 10am. 

As usual, there will be a bunch of good music. 

4 bands are set to rock your face off. 

There will also be tons of fun for the family. 

Including a play zone, entertainers and a pumpkin patch. 

They will also be doing the team bed races. 

This event gets pretty nuts. 

Teams of 5 people, decorate and modify a bed on wheels, then attempts to score the fastest time in the trials. 

If you would like to signs up a team, you can do it that day for $25. 

Not a bad price for some high-level competition.

It's okay if you turn this up.

Thanks to the bands, and fans of the bands for suggesting them to be featured. 

We hope you enjoyed this week. 

We did. 

Support local music.

Local Music

We will be taking our annual vacation next week (teaching English to wealthy princes in Dubai).

Yeah, we are totally into charity.

What does this have to do with local music, you ask...

We want to promote some of the local music scene.

So if you or your band has some (family safe) stuff on the YouTube, give us a shout. 

Each day will feature a new local act.

We know...

It's an awesome idea.

Don't act all surprised about it.

Monumental Week?

Back in March, we told you about a group that was trying to have the ten commandments monument outside of Valley High removed. 

Refresh your memory HERE, and HERE

Well, they are back at it. 

At the end of August, they again requested the monument be removed. 

And this time they have the backing of some local parents. 

We aren't sure if the board will plan on fighting this to the end. 

As it could end up costing lots of money. 

If they end up losing this battle, they will owe their legal fees, and could likely owe the plaintiff's fees as well. 

That's some serious scratch. 

The same group, Freedom From Religion Foundation, also requested that Connellsville High remove a similar monument. 

Conellsville officials covered theirs last week, and say they plan to remove it. 

Even though over 150 people showed up against their decision. 

And vandals have removed the covering a few times since. 

In the midst of the heated political season, we now have religious stuff. 

We can feel the heat from here.

We Have Not Forgotten

Today we remember all of the fallen from 9/11. 

It is still one of the clearest days that we can remember. 


And we don't expect that to change any time soon. 

We normally can find humor in most things we post about. 

All we can come up with today, is an amazing local photo by our great friend and contributor, David Cooper.

It's About To Get Real

The residents of Virginia Drive are about to lose it. 

For months, they have been crying out for help with the people that speed through their street, as a short cut to get to Lower Burrell. 

Read our previous posts... 



And now, the fine people of that street are claiming that harassment is a new issue in this saga. 

People are blowing their horns, yelling obscenities and throwing trash. 

That ain't cool. 

So at the most recent meeting with the mayor, the Virginia Drivinites let their voice be heard again. 

Claiming the city has put them on the proverbial back-burner. 

Mayor Guzzo assured them that the study was nearly complete. 

We plan on keeping our eye out around there. 

Standing guard, Hell's Angels-Style...

You Know The Drill


Do we have to actually say the words when we post a picture from the classic movie Men At Work? 

I mean, every time there is a holiday, the chances of garbage pickup being postponed a day, is near 100%. 

So here it is...

Your holiday-week reminder NOT to put your trash out until Friday night/Saturday morning.

We appreciate you not stinking up our block, for an extra 24 hours.
