Mayor Ed Gainey gets right to work

Ed Gainey, the first Black mayor of Pittsburgh is sworn in here by Allegheny Common Pleas Judge Kim Berkeley Clark, the first African American to serve as president Judge as his wife, Michelle, holds the Bible.

 

Gainey has already appointed some of his senior staff, including the city solicitor who needs the approval of City Council.

 

And he has put a hold on two contentious projects, one which would require rezoning a large swath of Oakland, and another to put a road through Schenley Park at Panther Hollow.

See the full story in the January 13 edition of Print.

Covid-19 wreaks havoc 

the new Omicron variant of Covid-19 has hit Allegheny County hard with the highest case counts seen over the course of the pandemic, so far. Universities are delaying student's return to in-person classes and the Pittsburgh Public Schools have been keeping buildings open as long as they have the staff, but closing them if they don't.

The rest of the story is available in Print, on newsstands in the East End.

WE MAY HAVE SEEN THE END OF THE SNOW DAY - Those surprise reprieves from classes, when all a kid had to do was go outside and get good and cold to come in for a hot chocolate may be gone forever. Now, instead of sleeping in, children have to be up and at their computers ready for a day of online learning. The hot chocolate has to wait. Here Theo Huntley, 7, of Point Breeze, goes sledding in Mellon Park after his online classes were over for the day.  Find out more about what's happening in the East End by picking up Print at one of our retailers.

A note on our coverage during the Covid-19 pandemic: Allegheny County has ios now seeing infections with the Omicron variant and new infections are riding to an average of more than 900 a day, which is higher than any time this year. So Print is not rushing back to publish more frequently, which means we are staying monthly for the time being. The most recent edition was published on December 16. The next issue is planned for February 17. If that changes, we will let you know in this space here and on our Facebook page.  Thanks for sticking with us. Our plan is to keep slowly publishing as we emerge from this pandemic, if we ever do. Please be safe and healthy.
