By Austin Vaught Contributing Writer Carrick residents heard an update on summer crime as Zone 3 officer Christine Luffey was the primary speaker at last Monday’s meeting of the Carrick / Overbrook Block Watch at its temporary location in former Birmingham United Church of Christ on Carrick Avenue. Officer Luffey opened the meeting and presented the monthly crime report to a smaller-than-usual crowd of about 35 residents. The report listed more than 60 criminal incidents that occurred in Carrick or Overbrook between June 4 and July 2. Among those incidents were 15 reports of theft, 13 reports of simple assault, three reports of aggravated assault, and seven reports of criminal mischief. Additionally, officer Luffey described seven of the most significant criminal incidents in detail: Police are investigating a shooting that occurred in the 2600 block of Brownsville Road on June 13 around 2:45 p.m. Officers responded to a 911 call stating a male victim was shot while sitting in his vehicle. The caller reported the shooter was driving a black truck. When police arrived, they observed the victim had suffered a minor gunshot wound and several bullet holes were found along the outside of his vehicle. Detectives are reviewing surveillance footage and processing the vehicle for evidence. The case remains open and under investigation. A female suspect was ar-

rested and charged with prostitution and loitering after police said she stopped a detective in an unmarked vehicle on The Boulevard. No additional information was provided regarding the exchange between the officer and the suspect. The incident occurred on June 9 at 8:41 p.m. A couple was arrested on June 12 at 1 a.m. after police visited a home on Merritt Avenue in search of a suspect with an outstanding warrant. Inside the home, police discovered marijuana, cocaine, hypodermic needles, and empty stamp bags. A male suspect was charged with drug possession and operating a vehicle without inspection after he was pulled over on June 17 around 5 p.m. Police said they searched the man’s vehicle after observing numerous scabs on his arm and discovered heroin in his possession. A man was arrested in the 100 block of Calhoun Avenue after a probation officer informed police he had discovered heroin and drug paraphernalia on the suspect’s living room table. He also stated that a child was in the home at the time. The man was charged with drug possession and endangering the welfare of a child. A man was charged with aggravated assault, criminal mischief, and burglary after Zone 3 police and SWAT arrested him at a home in the 200 block of Sprucewood Street on June 27 at 8:13 p.m. According to the report, a female victim told police the suspect choked her and held a gun to her head.

City launches resident guides for newcomers The City of Pittsburgh is celebrating the cultural diversity of the city during Immigrant Heritage month along with the launch of its first Resident Guide. The  Residents Guid e is an online resourc e that will offer Spanishspeaking residents helpful information about citywide services, resources, and function as a one-stop shop for residents’ needs. “This is a small step to make the city more accessible to all residents. We understand that knowledge is empowering; and by giving residents the tools and resources we aim to empower them and make this city an enjoyable and accommodating place for them, their families, and the greater community to live and thrive,” said Feyisola Alabi, special initiatives manager. In 2017, one of the goals for the new City of Pittsburgh website was to create Resident Guides — a page on the website containing important city information in one, accessible place and tailored to a community’s specific needs. The Department of Innovation and Performance, Welcoming Pittsburgh, and the Commission on Human Relations came together to create the first guide tailored to the

needs of the Hispanic/Latinx community. To ensure accuracy, relevance, and cultural appropriateness the team sought input from a diverse group of stakeholders in the Hispanic/Latinx community such as Casa San Jose, LACU, the Latino Community Center and Barrio Latino. After collecting all of the information, the city created an English guide that was then translated into Spanish by Nereida Daza of the Latino Community Center.  “Guides like this one will serve as bridges between our city and its residents. The commission will always support efforts of this kind as a means to ensure that every person who lives, works or visits our city feels welcome, and has access to information and resources in a language that they can understand,” said Carlos Torres, executive director for the Commission on Human Relations. This is the first of several guides the city hopes to publish on the website, each curated for a different community in Pittsburgh and translated into different languages. As information changes, it is the city’s goal to update the guides regularly. To learn more about the process and how we came to create these guides, visit https://

Carnegie Museums’ annual Summer Adventure is an invitation to its members to visit the museums and participate in a variety of events, earning stamps when they do—with each stamp representing a chance to win great prizes in an end-of-summer prize drawing. But this year, the Summer Adventure has a new twist: a friendly chatbot named Andy CarnegieBot is serving as a mobile guide to the four Carnegie Museums’ summer activities. Accessible on any smart phone through Facebook Messenger, Andy CarnegieBot also invites curious users to test their mettle in trivia games, participate in good-natured opinion polls, and take part in a natural history scavenger hunt. The bot was created by Carnegie Museum’s in-house Innovation Studio through a grant from the Knight Foundation. “We want to use technology to create compelling, fun interactions with our museums—whether or not a user is visiting,” said Ed Motznik, vice president of technology for Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh. “Andy CarnegieBot is an extension of us—of the four Carnegie Museums—and part of an ongoing effort to create more two-way communications through technology. In this case, we’re applying artificially intelligent chatbot technology. Guided by Andy CarnegieBot, users can see what’s happening at the museums and take part in trivia games, friendly opinion polls, and

Police found five stamp bags of heroin in the vehicle. “We want Pittsburgh to be safe and whatever that takes, it’s what we’re going to do,” officer Luffey said. Following the June crime report, officer Luffey asked if residents had any reports or complaints for her to take back to Zone 3 police. Multiple residents complained about ongoing issues with dirt bike riders driving at high speeds through private property, recent breakins and vandalism at the former St. Basil school, and the high quantity of empty stamp

bags on the street in the 2000 block of Brownsville Road. A resident also complained about late night fireworks and asked if city laws or noise ordinances apply. Officer Luffey said new state laws allowing fireworks often supersede any city ordinances, but encouraged residents to call 911 to report them. “Always call, you don’t know how close an officer is,” officer Luffey said. “We get lucky a lot.” Ernest Rajakone, deputy manager of the city’s Office of Community Affairs, was also in attendance and asked if residents had any feedback for Mayor Peduto’s office. Several residents complained about recent flooding issues in the South Hills and

specifically mentioned Becks Run Road and the intersection of Route 51 and Route 88. “It’s only a matter of time before there is a tragedy,” a resident said. “Becks Run Road floods every time there is a hard rain.” Mr. Rajakone confirmed that multiple city departments are working on plans to ease flooding in the South Hills and that mayor’s office is working closely with Councilman Anthony Coghill to address the problem. State Rep. Harry Readshaw confirmed Becks Run Road is owned by the county and Route 51 and Route 88 are state roads, and said there is not much city resources can do to prevent flooding in these areas. Additionally, Mr. Readshaw provided a brief update on the Pennsylvania state budget planning process. He said this year’s budget passed and

Free mobile and web-based app assists military veterans The National Veterans Legal Services Program (NVLSP) recently launched the first of its kind app for use by military veterans and their advocates, available for download through the NVLSP website, Apple App Store, or Google Play Store. The application, NVLSP VA Benefit Identifier, helps veterans, with or without the assistance of a veteran’s service officer, determine specific VA benefits to which they are likely entitled. Veteran Rob Concklin found the app helpful and commented on Facebook. “I just wanted to write and say thanks for the benefits app. I went thru it, made a claim for five service connected conditions, three were granted immediately. I probably wouldn’t have even made the claim if it weren’t for your app.” A fourth condition was granted later for Mr. Concklin and while one condition was denied, he was pleased he filed a claim. The app directs users to a logic-based questionnaire that

assists in verifying whether a veteran should file a claim for service-connected disability benefits or nonservice-connected disability pension. The survey addresses all possible disabilities covered by VA regulations. Created in both English and Spanish, the app functions as a comprehensive logic tree, generating additional questions from previously supplied answers. To protect privacy, no data or personally identifiable information is retained. Once the questionnaire is completed, results can be emailed or printed and used as a reference when filing claims for VA benefits.

The Second Annual Goat Fest in South Side Park will take place on Saturday, July 28 from noon to 4 p.m., rain or shine. Goat Fest is free and open to the public at two locations in South Side Park.

Next Knoxville Council meeting will be July 11 The Knoxville Community Council’s next meeting will be the bimonthly forum on July 11, at 6 p.m. at Trinity Lutheran Church, 601 Brownsville Rd.

Classified Deadline: Thursday, Noon

Guest speaker will be Julius Boatwright, executive director of the Will Allen Foundation and founder CEO of Steel Smiling. Mr. Boatwright’s organizations focus on individuals and communities, instilling hope, removing barriers, educating and advocating available services and resources. They concentrate on underserved neighborhoods and connect individuals with mental health treatments.

“We’re hoping to maximize the benefit of this app for veterans by offering it as a free service, without any cost for downloading and utilizing,” said Bart Stichman, co-founder and executive director of NVLSP. “We want to provide a supplementary means for veterans to decide what their best options are in filing a claim for disability benefits.” NVLSP’s VA Benefit Identifier app does not assist with claims for a higher rating for disabilities the VA has already connected to military service; claims previously filed with the VA; or claims for disabilities resulting from VA health care, VA vocational rehabilitation or participation in a VA Compensated Work Therapy program. In completing the Identifier questionnaire, veterans should have documents available about their military service (DD Form 214), information about medical conditions and any prior VA decisions or related communications.

Upon completing the survey, veterans are advised to schedule an appointment with a veteran’s advocate chosen from a list of Veterans Service Organizations furnished in the app. Veteran’s advocates are regularly available to assist with applications for VA disability benefits, free of charge. A key highlight of the NVLSP VA Benefit Identifier is its ability to appropriately recommend when veterans should file for specific conditions, prompting them to submit an “intent to file” form with the VA, while further providing timelines and instruction on how to proceed with a formal claim. NVLSP’s app features an

easy to navigate interface allowing veterans to interact with a support point person and can be downloaded from the NVLSP website to any web-enabled smart device. NVLSP recently fixed some bugs in the app in May that

had frustrated a handful of users, and the problems identified were corrected. Download the NVLSP VA Benefit Identifier app on NVLSP’s website, from the Apple App Store, or from the Google Play Store.
