You're entitled to your opinion but not your own facts. Setting aside Ms. DiBattista (and I happened to be on your side), I've been appalled since I moved here more than 20 years at the neb-shitting that people do -- like who's behind in their taxes, who's having problems with the spouse, and many, many other things that Ms. Manners says should not discussed in public by decent folks.
However...
Those hypocrites at city hall are very, very good at making trouble with that kind of personal information to people they don't like or are afraid of. Like me, and some others who post regularly on here. It shouldn't be, but in McKeesport, it is. So, what's good for the goose is good for the gander.
You're shooting the messengers. Regular posters here DO care about McKeesport, that's why we're angry that city hall points at the people who pay their salaries. Now they have three fingers pointing back.
City hall plays games with McKeesport residents at will. You all paid for your city solicitors DUI trial.

Don't forget the second DUI by McKeesport city solicitor John Jason Elash.

Not icy patches! Of course, John Elash wasn't man enough to say he was driving drunk. He was content to cover it up for months until test were forthcoming. Your not honest Jason. Worst yet for residents, you represent McKeesport still.

Maybe the city residents should cease paying taxes by your McKeesport city hall reasoning? Name a city solicitor, like the McKeesport city solicitor John Jason Elash that doesn't pay rent? Name another city solicitor that doesn't pay the IRS? Name another city solicitor that tried to claim they crashed into 716 Long Run Road in McKeesport as a second DUI? What other solicitor other than the McKeesport city solicitor wanted ignore paying taxes? Well, if John Jason Elash skips paying taxes, do you think everyone else in the McKeesport should do the same? What about skip paying taxes like you in the city you live in? Or do you as city solicitor just sleep from house to house or at city hall? Kapish?

McKeesport Solicitor J. Jason Elash Faces DUI Trial
By William Peacock, Esq. on May 1, 2012 3:12 PM
A local municipal official faces a criminal trial resulting from a January DUI, after waiving his preliminary hearing on Monday morning, reports the Pittsburg Post-Gazette. J. Jason Elash is the Solicitor for McKeesport and has held similar positions with a number of towns over the course of his long legal career. A Solicitor is essentially a jack of all trades attorney for the city that researches and advises them on legal issues and regulations.
According to the Post-Gazette, Elash was leaving the inauguration party for Mayor Michael Cherepko when he crashed his SUV into a building in the 700 block of Route 48. After being taken to the hospital for a head injury, his blood alcohol content was allegedly measured at 0.196, which is more than twice the legal limit. He was also cited for speeding.
If he is convicted of a highest-level BAC (0.16 or higher) first time DUI offense, he faces some pretty severe penalties. The charge carries a minimum of 72 hours in jail, with a maximum of six months.
Because he was in an accident, he probably won't get the minimum penalty. There is also a fine of $1,000 to $5,000 and a 12 month license suspension, plus alcohol education classes and possible court ordered alcohol treatment.
An Occupational Limited License, which allows the driver to go to and from work, is available to first time offenders after sixty days of suspension.
Though it is inapplicable to Mr. Elash, for those with a single prior DUI, the penalties for a highest-level BAC DUI increase to a minimum of 90 days in jail and maximum of five years, plus a $1,500 to $10,000 fine, 18 month license suspension, ignition interlock device, alcohol education classes, and possible court ordered alcohol treatment.
Someone with two or more prior offenses can be sentenced to one to five years in prison, plus $2,500 to $10,000 fine, 18 month license suspension, ignition interlock device, and possible court ordered alcohol treatment.

Name another city where not paying taxes is acceptable? If you can, then it must be ok to do in McKeesport. If you can't, thence McKeesport is a city exclusive where residents refuse to due to city hall abuses.

You can buy influence in McKeesport, Ronald "Porky" Melocchi said so on his investigated tapped phone calls! Those are the people city hall in McKeesport looks up to. The machine means illegal payout gambling machine at the Viking Bar in McKeesport owned by indicted councilman Daniel Carr.

Ok, former councilman Paul Shelly lost money from false charges in McKeesport. The DA dropped the charges! What other city made false charges with the DA later dropping the charges?

They were false charges promoted by McKeesport city hall in favor of felon Edward Batista. It's a McKeesport city tactic.

On top of the multiple school and county tax liens Elash has against him, the IRS has recently filed 2 more. Check the public records online:
FTL-11-000512 for $42,444.82
FTL-11-000503 for $73,649.46
A total of $116,094.28 in back federal taxes! Unreal!
This is the guy that Mike Cherepko and his 3 cronies Diggs, McCall, and Walker on council keep trying to shove down the city's throat? The guy who Jim Brewster kept as solicitor for his whole 7 years?
Way to prove you are a puppet. Cherepko clearly doesn't give a damn about the city and only wants to keep crap like this going.
Vote NO to Cherepko!
McKeesport falls with Pittsburgh, minus the illegal gambling ring money. Master Cherry slots eats tires! Right Nick? Excellent job Nick!

Wow! That is quite a story. So who was the bag man who made the drop on this supposed pay-off? Were police officers involved in the frame up that had to be protected? What leverage did Brewster use over the cleaner to buy this alleged frame up? Was Eddie really arrested and put away to keep him from rolling on Brewster and the cops?

I guess you had no choice Paul? Or, at least you thought you had no other choice. Truth be told, You had other options. You should have done the right thing. It's not too late. Anyone who was wrongfully imprisoned would have every right to be afraid. You knew you couldn't count on the DA's office for help. You were only a councilman and on the wrong side of the power brokers. Call the feds, it's not too late.

I do believe Paul should go after Brewster if a set up took place. If people have facts and witnesses willing to testify to such a set up they should come forward. No political figure should have the power to carry out such a heinous act against an innocent person.

Senator Brewster, remember when I came to you for help? I'm still not going to call it even, just yet. Maybe you can call the worthless DA Zappala to have some of his mobsters squeeze me.

I don't think so. I'm doing the squeezing.

I also went to Clairton City Manager Ralph Imbrogno for help. He threatened to sue me and had the Clairton Police tail my wife and I and we ended up paying over $600-$800 in traffic violations. Maybe you could have me arrested like you did to Paul Shelly. Did anyone ever tell you you nothing but a punk, cheap ass punk.

I believe I'm harassing you Senator Shithead call Da Zappala, have me arrested.

Another option is to have McKeesport police leave their gambling joints or the Viking Lounge and have me arrested. What Say Senator Blockhead?

Mr. Ference, why are you doing this on a blog that causes Mr. Elash more harm and embarrassment? He's paying all of his debts off while you people sit there and just take shot after shot? If he wasn't he'd be in jail! My daughter asked me about why this was happening if he made it all right, been punished, admitted mistake and is fixing it all? He was in school when whatever happened to your son happened. I'm sorry it did and you have my deepest condolences, sincerely. But why you are discussing this on this thread means you want to hurt his wife and three daughters by rehashing his admitted mistakes that he has taken full responsibility for and is paying full price to correct. Kindly refrain from such intentional harm to him and his family. I'm sure you are aware how passionate a man can get when someone who they have never met or never harmed or even wished harm on in any way proceeds to harm their family over and over. Jason has coached my daughter for years. He has gone above and beyond for each one of them. Ask anyone! Sure he made a mistake on his taxes and drove after drinking. He's a great guy, great coach, helps everyone! Can't you just leave him alone? I don't know anyone that hasn't made mistakes, do you?

Mr. Elash is no concern of mine. Lou Washowich, Tom Brletic, Bill Scully, Brewster, Archabbot Nowicki, Donald "The Lavendar Don" Wuerl are my concerns. Even the Sicilian Scumbags I so often write about are just scumbags no real concern of mine.

1pw Persons Walking Along a Roadway
• If sidewalk present, pedestrian must use it and may walk in either direction. Sec 3544(a)
http://www.dvrpc.org/transportation/safety/pr...
...
This is true for McKeesport, and doesn't provide excuses of any kind. The McKeesport police need training because collecting money counts. No one may collect money for donations of any kind, no leaf blowing, not even watering flowers Shawn Morris. You can be sued for improper charges and allowing pedestrians in your city to obstruct traffic. It's the state law. All state laws trump local made rules and codes in every state. Always. John Elash needs to learn proper law. Lying to the public counts for misrepresentation of McKeesport. False interpretation of the law breaks John J. Elash clause of employment agreement. The finding that he lied causes the public to wonder how often and what else has John J. Elash lied about as a city solicitor. McKeesport has a wayward multiple DUI charged city solicitor. He owed the IRS more than $100,000 and has access to police use to the extent of bending his useless false advice. He's doesn't have the proper credentials to be a true lawyer and lies as solicitor. He should be fired. Civil rights are played with in McKeesport.
...

• If no sidewalk, but shoulder is present, must walk on shoulder and may walk in either direction. Sec 3544(b)
• In the absence of sidewalk and shoulder, pedestrian may walk in road, as close to edge as practicable and must walk on left side of road facing traffic. Sec 3544(c)

http://www.dvrpc.org/transportation/safety/pr...

Cross References. Section 3543 is referred to in section 3542 of this title.
§ 3544. Pedestrians walking along or on highway.
(a) Mandatory use of available sidewalk.--Where a sidewalk is provided and
its use is practicable, it is unlawful for any pedestrian to walk along and upon an adjacent roadway.
(b) Absence of sidewalk.--Where a sidewalk is not available, any pedestrian walking along and upon a highway shall walk only on a shoulder as far as practicable from the edge of the roadway.
(c) Absence of sidewalk and shoulder.--Where neither a sidewalk nor a shoulder is available, any pedestrian walking along and upon a highway shall walk as near as practicable to an outside edge of the roadway and, if on a two-way roadway, shall walk only on the left side of the roadway.
(d) Right-of-way to vehicles.--Except as otherwise provided in this subchapter, any pedestrian upon a roadway shall yield the right-of-way to all vehicles upon the roadway.
§ 3545. Pedestrians soliciting rides or business.
No person shall:
(1) Stand on a roadway for the purpose of soliciting a ride.
(2) Stand on a roadway for the purpose of soliciting employment,
business or contributions from the occupant of any vehicle.
(3) Stand on or in proximity to a highway for the purpose of
soliciting the watching or guarding of any vehicle while parked or about
to be parked on a street or highway.

Sue the city if any accident is caused, because McKeesport police will always side with friends against the state law. It's been proven in McKeesport many times.

Traffic isn't obstruction on a roadway, pedestrians are. Especially with sidewalks present, its the state law.
