A note on our coverage during the Covid-19 pandemic: Local events have pretty much shut down during this pandemic and gathering is dangerous. In light of that, Print has reduced its publication cycle to once a month. The most recent edition was published on March 18. The next issue is planned for April 15. 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 weather this pandemic. Please be safe and healthy.

Helping with the move - Sankofa Community Garden had to move a block from its old location to Brushton Avenue in Homewood. Part of that move meant taking the frames for the raised beds, repositioning them on the new lot and filling them with soil that had been delivered in a 5-foot-high pile. Jaice Black, 6, of Homewood, left, and Messiah Abdullah, 7, of Turtle Creek, climbed to the top of
of the pile during a workday there. Find out more about what's happening in the East End by picking up Print at one of our retailers. Never miss another issue by subscribing to Print today.

Celethia Thomas, the chef for the event, was exposed to Covid-19 and is in quarantine, so she will be unable to cook for the fundraiser.

Echo Realty threatens parklett

Echo Realty, the real estate arm of Giant Eagle, said in a lawsuit appealling the denial of its request for a variance to build an 85-foot-high apartment building in Shadyside that if it loses that appeal, it will build the building to the lot line, eliminating the parklet that was going to be part of the new development.
