Many stores are sold out.
Stores in and around Upper St. Clair can't keep up with the demand for sleds. The holiday week's snowfall and cold temperatures have made for perfect sledding conditions for local kids. The Upper St. Clair 3-hole golf course has been packed with sledders every day. Dick's Sporting Goods at South Hills Village has no sleds left in stock. The same story over at Toys R Us. Both stores have trucks coming on Friday, but it's unclear if there will be any new sleds for sale. Do you know of a store with sleds still in stock?

Former Pittsburgh Steeler Jerome Bettis attracted a large crowd at the new Dick's Sporting Goods store.
Hundreds of fans wearing their black and gold best were on hand as "The Bus" rolled into town Saturday afternoon. Former Pittsburgh Steeler Jerome Bettis signed autographs at the new Dick's Sporting Goods store at South Hills Village. Some fans camped out in front of the store overnight to ensure an autograph wristband. Rick DeBenedetto, a self-proclaimed "big Bettis fan," said he showed up at the store at about 5 a.m. after driving into town on Friday from Rochester, NY.

Gun control advocates are asking the Moon-based sporting goods retailer to stop stocking high-powered magazines.
A Mississippi teacher is circulating a petition online requesting that Dick's Sporting Goods discontinue the sale of high-powered ammunition in light of a Colorado movie theater massacre that killed 12 and wounded 58.

Authorities said he used a high-powered, semi-automatic assault…
