I saw a Daily News article a few months back that said McKeesport was selected to receive KaBoom! money to upgrade a local playground or playgrounds. The photo with the cheesing Mayor was at Renzie. The playground condition is deplorable. Has the money been received? Spent? Where?

Usually one playground upgrade takes at least three photo ops. Upgrading will commence when the photo ops are completed.

Next photo opt will be the ground breaking with shovel in hand to "cover up" things.

The final photo opt will be a ribbon cutting ceremony with the senator providing the scissor.

What's up with this. Will Summer be over before Renzie's playground gets the upgrade?

I heard a shooting took place at the main pavilion last night during a grad party. Is no place off limits to these pigs? I haven't been in that park since the early 90's and I actually took my dog for a walk there a few weeks back and said to myself this is not a bad park and was positive I would return. Stores/Ice cream shop back open grounds looked good,etc-Never again! Get control of these ghetto pigs Mckeesport. Or don't either way I wont return.

Sorry to hear about the shooting, if confirmed. The local news media shuns away from reporting incidents that can be construed as being negative. I pray no one was injured.

Negativity, aka the truth, seem to ruffle the feathers of the mayor and senator. Like others, if the local news does not report it, then I like others will not believe or know it happened. How much local reporting did the biggest December SW PA video machine bust in our history and ensuing grand jury receive?

Word on the street is that gun fire was exchanged with our brave officers.

I sure hope that our officers were not firing warning shots and met force with force.

So much for Hope and Respect and Love.

The Post-Gazette reported it online a few hours ago. They're telling a different story than here, but they reported it.

Nevermind that $h!t, we'll all report the Colfax Street fire.

Pittsburgh news probably reported the ice cream maker in place of the shootings. The weather is 90 percent of the time on the air.
