Mayor William Peduto announced today that the City of Pittsburgh will host a free training program for childcare providers to receive state-required pediatric first aid, CPR and fire safety certifications. Biennial certifications are critical to ensuring the safety of children and staff, but can be expensive for childcare facilities who often operate with limited funding and resources. This free course helps to alleviate that cost for the city’s childcare facilities, while allowing them to maintain a high standard of safety.
“It can be very difficult and costly for childcare facilities to ensure that their staff members have access to high quality training opportunities. Our program aims to ensure that programs that need this vital training are able to get it and to keep the children in their care safe,” said Tiffini Simoneaux, Youth and Education Manager for the Office of Equity.
Due to safety precautions, the program will be offered in a hybrid format with participants at two physical locations following strict COVID-19 protocols. Virtual…

Melissa Ellison, called Missy, was 20-years-old.
It was Dec. 28, 1987. Missy was living in mobile home off Coljean Road in Taylor’s Trailer Park, which was owned by her parents. She had recently separated from her husband and had invited a friend and the friend’s boyfriend to move in with her to help with the bills.
Around 11:30 p.m., Missy spoke to her mother on the phone. Missy told her mother she was scared, but she wouldn’t say why.
By 4 a.m., Missy was found dead. She was beaten to death with a charred log taken from the fireplace, which was then left by the front door.
Missy’s roommate told officers she woke up because she heard Missy’s baby, Casie, crying.
Why was little Casie on the couch? Whose vehicle had left tire tracks outside the home? There were so many questions investigators worked to find answers to.
There is another strange thing that stands out to Missy’s family. They say when they were asked to look at the scene and see if anything was out of place, they noticed two pictures…

Our country has two main political parties-Democrat & Republican. Each would like to make you think they are different then the other. Put the reality of it is that both are exactly the same. Both parties want control and will do anything to get it. They spin every issue to suit their purpose. When Bill Clinton was President the Republicans wanted you to think he should be removed from office for having an affair with an intern. The Democrats wanted you think it was no big deal and not an Impeachable offense. Recently the Democrats wanted you think every single thing President Trump did was Impeachable, while the Republicans were just the opposite. And the main stream media is no help. If you turn CNN you think the President is the worst thing since Hitler. If you turn Fox you think the President is the best thing since the Rubix Cube. And now that Biden is in office it will all reverse and CNN will have nothing but good things to say about the President and Fox will only say bad things about him. So with all of this double standard who is right? What is the actual truth? Well the answer is there is no truth and no one is right. They all are lying. They all just want to move their view points to you so you will vote their way. In getting you to vote their way they hope to…
