U.S. Rep. Tim Murphy (R-Upper St. Clair) had some of his constituents worried Tuesday after arriving at the Veterans’ Affairs Committee's investigative hearing on the outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease at the VA Hospital in Pittsburgh in a wheel chair. Murphy is recovering from a herniated disc. His doctors asked him to limit some of his movement through the week. He’s recovering well and is maintaining a full schedule, according to his spokesperson.

How you can help keep your neighborhood safe this winter.
The Upper St. Clair Volunteer Fire Department issued a reminder to residents on its new Facebook page to keep neighborhood fire hydrants clear of snow. As we all are aware, the snow has started to consistently fall. To help us execute our duties on the fire scene in a timely manner, we ask you to do your best to keep the area around fire hydrants clear of snow. This will help us to locate and use the hydrants immediately instead of us searching and digging them out. Your help is greatly appreciated throughout the winter season!

Supporters crowded a meeting and a Facebook page has been started.
By the time she reached ninth grade, Emma Pasekoff was already falling through the cracks. The Mt. Lebanon High School teen fell in with the wrong crowd and lost interest in school. She began losing the respect of her parents, who thought she would never graduate. “I started losing hope for myself. I didn’t care about getting good grades,” said Pasekoff, 20, of Sewickley. “Everything was just immensely deteriorating.” As a last-ditch effort, the 10th grader decided with her parents and principals to try the Alternative Center for Education, a separate alternative school on the Parkway West Career and Technology Center campus. Pasekoff focused on schoolwork, took up the culinary arts program at Parkway and turned her situation around, going…

One lady and two guys team up for a smooth sound, mixing old favorites with enthusiastically received originals.
You've probably heard a local band playing in your neighborhood. Sometimes against your will. But you'll probably want to listen if the band called LocaL comes to your neighborhood. That's right. The second "L" is capitalized, too, because that's the first letter of the first name of two of the original band members. You follow? Well, they're down to only one name starting with "L," but they're still LocaL. And they're local, crossing through Upper St. Clair to meet up with one another: Vocalist Leigh-Anne Yost, the remaining "L," lives in Bridgeville; guitarist Kyle Ingram and percussionist-guitarist Zack DeFelice are Peters Township High School graduates. Got it? Good. OK, let's hear from Leigh-Anne, who's a heck of a writer along with …
