  1. Ian Smith, a photographer for KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh, said that he was attacked by protesters who stomped and kicked him at a demonstration there. Smith, who said other protesters jumped in to save him, posted a picture on Twitter showing him with a bruised face and bloody hand.
  2. PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – During a press conference, Pittsburgh Police Chief Scott Schubert expressed disappointment and anger toward those that turned Saturday afternoon’s protest from peaceful to violent. “I can tell you as the police chief, I am very disappointed because this was a peaceful protest for something that was very serious, and this does nothing to honor the memory of somebody who died,” Chief Schubert said. “When you take it from a peaceful protest and you take it to a riot where you’re injuring people, you’re throwing rocks at people, you’re throwing cans at people, you’re hurting reporters, you’re taking over something that shouldn’t be.” RELATED STORIES: Pittsburgh Public Safety Places Curfew On Downtown Pittsburgh Pittsburgh Public Safety Has Declared ‘Unlawful Assembly’ Downtown, Urging Businesses To Close, Residents To Stay Home Store Windows Broken, Police Cruisers Set On Fire, As Downtown Pittsburgh Protest Over The Death Of George Floyd Turns Violent Both Chief Schubert and Pittsburgh Public Safety Director Wendell Hissrich expressed a belief that those responsible for taking the protest from peaceful to violent are not from the city. “We believe a lot of these individuals that are creating trouble are not from the city,” Hissrich said. “I am so angry at the fact that some segment hijacked this and then took some of the youth and brought them into the mix,” Schubert said. “This is something we take very seriously and we’ll do everything we can for the ones who did this and to find out who they are and to get them.” Schubert also expressed the belief that those responsible were not there to protest the death of George Lloyd, but just to create chaos and cause harm. “I’m willing to bet my check that there’s a lot of people who are anarchists, who, they’re not here to protest what happened, they’re not here to protest what happened, they’re here to take advantage of situations and throw it their way and bring other people into the mix and cause damage and cause injury,” Cheif Schubert added. “There’s no doubt that that’s who’s doing it and a lot of things we’re seeing are white males, dressed in the anarchist, ANTIFA, they’re ones who are fueling a lot of this. It’s just a damn shame that they took advantage of the situation, for something, something happened in another state where somebody died who shouldn’t have died, and they hijacked that message for their own.” Schubert promised Pittsburgh Police would find those responsible for hijacking the protests. “We will look at every video that we have, and we will do everything we can with our technology to find the ones who are responsible for a lot of this,” he said.
  3. Wolf Vetoes Bills to Safely Reopen PA, House Attempts an Override A day after Gov. Tom Wolf vetoed three bills aimed at safely reopening Pennsylvania, the House attempted an override vote on a bill that I co-sponsored. House Bill 2388 would allow vehicle dealerships, lawn and garden centers, cosmetology salons and barber shops, messenger services, animal grooming services and manufacturing operations to reopen. The vote was 115-87, 21 votes shy of the two-thirds majority needed for an override. House Bill 2412, which I co-sponsored to help reopen real estate services in the Commonwealth, was also vetoed by the governor this week. But shortly after the veto was announced, the governor announced new guidance to allow real estate operations to resume statewide anyway. This is not the first time the governor has acted in response to actions of the House. The same occurred with the construction industry, online vehicle sales, reopening plans and more. We are helping to drive the agenda toward reopening and will continue to do so. The third veto this week involved Senate Bill 327, which would have given county officials the ability to develop their own emergency mitigation plans for business.
  4. The Coyote really didn't give up like it appeared in the video - he just went back to place his mail-order with Acme. Stay tuned.
  5. Hello Hikers - don't you think that there may have been a reason why the place was named "Slippery Rock"?

  7. Wonder if he caught the virus from one of his tigers!?
  8. I watched him on TV last night talking about his bill that would freeze PA Legislators salaries during the Coronavirus and I also say a video of his last year in which he was talking about his bill that would eliminate the property tax - both are covered below: http://www.repfrankryan.com/NewsGroup/Press-Releases

  11. I did this with a small helium balloon when I was a kid - included my name and phone number. Received a phone call a few days later from the son of a farmer in Kane that he had found my balloon in their field.
  12. yinz A western-Pennsylvania bastardization of the phrase "you ones", which addresses more than one person. Since we "western PA people" do things like slur words together, replace almost all vowel sounds with a "schwa" sound (the upsidedown e in the dictionary), replace long "a" sounds with long "e" sounds, and refuse to pronounce any "t" that isn't the first letter of a word, this became "you-ens", then "youns", "yunz", and finally "yinz". Someone must have put this particular pronunciation and spelling in print at some point, since it seems to be the most accepted way to say and write it. The aforementioned characteristics of our accent are probably at least partly due to the diverse heritage of the population of this area, which is mostly made up of Italian, Irish, Polish, Native American, and African American people, NOT inbreeding, as someone in an earlier entry stated. The word has become associated with Pittsburgh in particular, whose natives are commonly referred to as "yinzers". "Are yinz comin' up fer Chrissmiss?" "What're yinz doin'?" "I seen yinz at the fleamarket yesterdee." yunz Pittsburgh second person plural form of you, you all, y'all in the south Yunz guys goin dawn ta Tree Rivers ta watch da Stillers game?
  13. Yes - because "You" is the Singular and "Yinz" or "Yunz" is the Plural. The British when developing their vocabulary just left out the Plural - so the 'Burghers correctly added the Plural to the vocabulary. The Brits may have the Queens English - but we have the Stillers English.
