Cement City Walking Tour Covers Architecture and History By Lois Thomson "If you're interested in history, if you're interested in architecture, we cover all of those." Mark Pawelec, a volunteer at the Donora Historical Society and Smog Museum, was referring to the Cement City Home and Walking Tour, and why people would be interested in participating. Scheduled for Oct. 16 and 17, the tours begin at the museum located at 595 McKean Ave., with a presentation by museum curator and Cement City resident Brian Charlton, and is followed by a tour of two houses. Construction began on Cement City more than 100 years ago when the demand for housing coincided with the rapid growth of the steel mills in Donora. Housing needed to be constructed quickly and inexpensively, and a good option seemed to be to use concrete instead of traditional wood framing. Thomas Edison, who believed concrete houses could be built at a low cost, founded his own Portland (highly refined and finely ground) cement concrete factory in New Jersey in 1902. A neighbor of Edison's owned the Lambie Concrete House Corporation, and was chosen for the Cement City project. In addition to the connection with Edison, another distinctive and historic feature of these houses is that they are built in the prairie style that is most associated with Frank Lloyd Wright: they feature low-pitched hipped roofs (roofs where all sides slope downward to the walls) with wide, overhanging eaves, simple detailing, and smooth planes. Pawelec said this is the 11th year for the tour, and the idea began as a way to reach people. "We were looking for a way to promote Cement City, to basically think outside the box on how we were introducing history to the public." He said once they started, the tours "kind of took hold," and he said the architecture and building-designs component is a big draw. "We've had people come from Youngstown, Morgantown. A professor from West Virginia University. We've had architectural preservationists on our tours. We had a guy who studied at Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin school and met him once. They find out about it and they are willing to travel. Brian is a good storyteller, and we get people on the tour whose friends have recommended it." The 2-1/2 hour tour starts at 1 p.m. with a presentation of photos, artifacts and blueprints on Donora's National Historic District. The photos were taken during all phases of Cement City construction in 1916 and 1917. The home tour follows in the Historic District and points out various architectural and social details. The tour concludes by visiting the interiors of two homes with rooms that have been restored to the period. The cost is $15 per person.

YOUR HEALTH Monongahela Valley Hospital Cautions: Flu Vaccine More Important Than Ever

With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, physicians at Monongahela Valley Hospital are advising the community that getting the flu vaccine is more important than ever. “We encourage everyone ages 6 months and older to get the flu vaccine — especially those at high risk including older adults, young children and pregnant women,” said David Weber, M.D., MVH’s director of Infectious Disease. “Although the vaccine doesn’t provide 100% protection, it is still the best defense against contracting the flu and developing serious complications.” According to Dr. Weber, while the flu vaccine will not prevent COVID19, it will reduce the burden of flu illnesses, hospitalizations and deaths on the health care system and conserve medical resources for people with COVID. The flu numbers can be staggering. As the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports, during 20192020, the flu vaccine prevented an estimated 7.5 million influenza illnesses, 3.7 million influenza-associated medical visits, 105,000 influenza-

associated hospitalizations, and 6,300 influenza-associated deaths. Monongahela Valley Hospital is offering the flu vaccine at physician offices listed below. Thomas Sisk, M.D. Martik Plaza 6108 Brownsville Road Ext., Suite 204 Finleyville, PA 15332 724-782-0723 John Holets, M.D. 447 West Main Street Monongahela, PA 15063 724-258-2070 Joanna Swauger, D.O.

The program consists of monthly programs from October through May that address a range of topics from “Maintaining a Healthy Lifestyle” to “Depression, Anxiety and Suicide Prevention.” The series kicks off on Oct. 12 with “Your Personal and Family Health: The Need for Change and Personal Challenges.” Chad VorderBureggen, fitness director at the Center for Fitness and Health,

will discuss what it means to be healthy, how to train and eat healthy and the challenges youth face. “This is truly a community collaborative effort,” explained Darla Holley-Holmes, program director for the Monessen Positive Action Community Team which is working with the groups to create the programming. “Our goal is to present positive, real life concepts to help the students feel good about themselves. We want them to learn and engage in positive actions for themselves and their families as well as for the school and the community.” Jordan Moyer, executive director of MVH’s Community Care Network, shares Mrs. HolleyHolmes vision. “We are delighted to partner with the community groups to bring this important and timely lifestyle programming to the Monessen students.”

CAREGIVING Q: Why should I consider becoming a professional caregiver? A: Caregiving in home care as a career is often overlooked because a person may think they either don’t have the skills necessary to be a capable caregiver or there is no viable career path in caregiving. Nothing could be further from the truth! There are so many benefits a caregiving career can offer, here are some of the most Kimberly L. attractive: • Flexible work schedules, day, evenings, Pirilla-Scalise, overnights and weekends. Fulltime and PartExecutive Director time hours are always options as well. Superior Home Care • Besides the normal flexibility offered in home care, there is also day-to-day flexibility that most other jobs can’t offer. Snow day for your kids? Not a problem to shift your work day a little later. In home care, we have room to shift schedules when life demands it. • Competitive wages based on skill and experience. Wage scales vary by employer but at Superior, our wage scale runs from $10/hour for a person with no experience all the way up to $15/hour for a highly experienced person. • Besides a competitive wage, most home care employers do offer benefits.

GASTROENTEROLOGY Q: Why getting a colonoscopy could be the best way to find the answer and save your life in the process.

A: What is one of the greatest success stories in modern medicine, the death rate from colorectal cancer has decreased significantly in the last 30 years. There has been a 2% decline in the rate of colon cancer among Americans every year for the last 15 years. Colorectal cancer (CRC) develops in the colon By Dr Nicholas Bellicini or rectum and is the second leading cause of canPittsburgh cer deaths in the U.S. According to the American Gastroenterology Cancer Society, approximately 140,000 new cases Associates of CRC were diagnosed last year and more than 50,000 died from the disease. According to recent studies, both the incidence and mortality of CRC are declining due to improved screening efforts and early detection. However, numerous studies have shown that even greater reduction in CRC could be achieved if more people receive screening colonoscopies. Nearly all colon and rectal cancers start out as small polyps that can become larger and progress to dysplasia and cancer. Several different types of polyps can form in the colon, but the most common and important are adenomas. These are the polyps that most often transform into cancer. The goal of CRC screening exams is to detect and remove adenomas before they progress. Numerous tests are available for CRC screening, but the gold standard is the colonoscopy. For the procedure, the patient is comfortably and safely sedated, and a thin, flexible rubber scope with a tiny camera is inserted into the rectum and advanced gently around the colon. Colonoscopy detects most small polyps and almost all large polyps and cancers, which are then removed and analyzed. The typical exam lasts only 15-20 minutes. In 2018, the American Cancer Society changed the recommendation for both men and women at average screening risks to begin screening at age 45 instead of 50. If no polyps are found, the exam should be repeated every 10 years. Repeat exams may be considered sooner with people with increased risk factors, such as family history of colon cancer, African Americans, smokers, obesity, or people with inflammatory bowel disease. Age should not be a cut off per multiple societal recommendations. People who are in good health and with a life expectancy of more than 10 years should continue regular colorectal screening through the age of 75. Dr Nicholas Bellicini is a board certified Gastroenterologist in private practice serving patients in the Mon Valley, South Hills and city of Pittsburgh, including Spartan Surgical Center, South Hills Endoscopy Center, St Clair Hospital and UPMC Mercy.

Home & Garden Kitchen and Bath Upgrades To Do Before the Holidays

(BPT) - Days are beginning to shorten and the evening air has a hint of coolness, which means soon there will be thoughts of planning for the holiday season. Many homeowners saved money during the past year due to putting vacations on hold, working from home and not spending as much on events. More households have the money for the home renovation they may have been planning.

"A change in lighting can make all the difference in the look of your home, but when considering any electrical changes it's best to hire a qualified electrician to examine your home's electrical system," said O'Rourke. "Updating old electrical installations may eventually reduce your homeowners insurance cost as older electrical systems are more likely to be considered fire hazards, which can impact the cost of your coverage. Updated electrical equipment can lower this cost." 2. Replacing old appliances with high energy-efficiency appliances Smart refrigerators and dishwashers will generate looks of admiration from your guests while making holiday meal prep and cleanup easier and less time consuming. These appliances go beyond their aesthetically pleasing qualities as they can also lower energy consumption and costs, and help reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Update floors and countertops Granite and marble countertops, wood cabinets, and stone floors are some of the more popular materials being used to give homes a modern look. These high-end renovations will increase your home value, as well as your premiums, but not by as much as you think. "There is a misconception that premiums will jump significantly with the installation of contemporary materials, but on average, Mercury Insurance policyholders may only see an increase of several more dollars a month added to their policy," said O'Rourke. It's important to review any home renovations with your insurance agent in a timely manner. If not, there could be gaps in your existing coverage that may not protect your new investment if disaster strikes.

Creative Ways to Enjoy Gardening This Fall (BPT) - When the weather starts to cool down, there are plenty of ways to enjoy the fall gardening season, both indoors and out. All it takes is a little creativity - and the right plants. Eat your garden If you enjoy using fresh herbs and vegetables to help create flavorful meals, you can still grow them yourself inside on a sunny windowsill or kitchen counter, or outside on a patio table or balcony. The new Kitchen Minis™ collection of tabletop vegetables from PanAmerican Seed gives you cherry tomatoes, sweet peppers or hot peppers even if you don't have a garden at all. These compact potted vegetable plants come fruiting so you can harvest and enjoy your own tasty veggies with the satisfaction of success right in your own home. Bring outdoor plants inside To add an extra layer of visual appeal and texture to any room, choose vivid plants and flowers that make a bold design statement, contrasting beautifully with your plush pillows and chunky throw blankets this fall. Here are a couple of traditionally outdoor plant options that also do well indoors once the temperatures start to drop. • Jurassic™ Rex Begonias have a (Continued on following page.)

5 Creative Ways to Transform Your Kitchen (BPT) - The kitchen is famously the go-to room of the house where family and friends gather to spend time together, so it should be a space that you enjoy hanging out in. If your kitchen's décor is starting to look a little tired, you can always freshen things up by adding modern and functional touches. Here are five ideas - from simple to complex - that can transform your kitchen from tired to top-notch. 1. Color your world Adding color doesn't need to be expensive or time-consuming. For instance, small appliances are to kitchens what throw pillows are to couches. Look for small, countertop kitchen appliances with a color you love and put them on display. Get creative with colorful art. Dress up your floors with a colorful runner. Paint something - an accent wall, a nook, woodwork, or if you're an experienced DIY-er, cabinets. You hold the palette, so go ahead and make your statement. 2. Warm up your countertops If you want to add a bit of natural warmth to your kitchen, consider butcher block countertops from LL Flooring, which offers an array of beautiful options. "There is nothing like the warmth and durability of wood to add timeless style to your kitchen," says Jennifer Meska, design expert at LL Flooring. "Classic styles like American Walnut are one of the most highly soughtafter domestic hardwood choices." Adding to the benefits of butcher block, the close grain of the wood provides a smooth, scratch-resistant surface that's easy to clean. 3. Make a cozy, intimate seating area Because people tend to congregate in the kitchen, invite them to stay awhile by installing a modern seating area. Get creative with counter seating, or carve out a cozy nook in a corner. Banquet seating or a bench at a window-side table can give your kitchen an inviting atmosphere.

The South Hills-Mon Valley Messenger publishes community news free of charge.

(Continued from previous page.) lives are busy, and kitchen seating is a multitasking hero. Seating that's both comfortable and functional allows you to spend time with children as they study, or socialize with guests while cooking a meal. 4. Shed a new light on it Updating your light fixtures can make a night-and-day difference in the mood of your kitchen. The easiest to install is pendant lighting that you plug into the wall. Hang a hook from the ceiling and swoop the cord over it and voila, you've got modern lighting. When in doubt, recessed lighting is always on trend. Installing it with a dimmer switch may require professional installation, but the end result is worth it. Need a quicker fix? Make a statement by replacing outdated fixtures with decorative track lighting, a lightbar over the kitchen island or an artistic chandelier. 5. Put a spotlight on your kitchen floor Fresh flooring can greatly revitalize your kitchen, instantly sprucing up any dull décor with a timeless product that is resilient, waterproof, durable and attractive. LL Flooring offers hundreds of waterproof styles to choose from, including the new CoreLuxe Americana collection, a line of extradurable vinyl flooring in natural wood hues that are sure to enhance your décor. Breathing new life into your kitchen can be as simple or as complex as you want to make it. Start small and go big, or start big and accent with small touches of color. Make it yours, and make it inviting.

Under NO circumstance should you send any money in advance or give the client your checking, license ID, or credit card numbers. Also beware of ads that claim to guarantee loans regardless of credit and note that if a credit repair company does business only over the phone it’s illegal to request any money before delivering its service. All funds are based in US dollars. 800 numbers may or may not reach Canada.
