Clothes 4U Ministry in Belle Vernon Open to the Public in January Pennsylvania Western University Wordmark Design Revealed Students At Cal U, Clarion and Edinboro Choose The Look For Integrated University’s Name The wordmark design for Pennsylvania Western University, its three sister campuses – PennWest California, PennWest Clarion and PennWest Edinboro – and the PennWest Global Online division was revealed recently. Similar to a logo, the wordmark will be prominently featured beginning in the spring, pending approval of the consolidation by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, the Philadelphia-based accrediting body for colleges and universities in Pennsylvania and the Mid-Atlantic states. Nearly 5,000 students selected the design from among three options created by the design teams serving the three western Pennsylvania campuses. Students from across the three campuses have been involved in the integration planning process from the start. In addition to choosing the wordmark design, students helped to select the name for the new university, which is expected to launch next summer and welcome its first students in the fall.

VETERANS HELPING VETERANS HOSTING AWARENESS EVENT IN HOMESTEAD JAN. 15 New Nonprofit Echoes Mon Valley Tradition Of Helping Vets By Michael P. Mauer An evening of awareness, entertainment and fundraising will be on tap in Forge Urban Winery at 210 East 7th Avenue in Homestead, as several local musicians will join forces there at 6:00 p.m. Saturday, January 15, to help local veterans. Although no cover charge will be required, profits from the sale of food and beverages at the event will go to Veterans Helping Veterans (VHV). Retired Marine Michael Lisovich, VHV founder, said he hopes the evening will assist the nonprofit with informing veterans that the adjustment to civilian life can be easier. Lisovich’s military career started in 1977 with training at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot in San Diego, CA, and cumulated through the senior warrant officer ranks. As a combat veteran who holds the Southwest Asia, Iraq and Afghanistan campaign medals gathered over 38 years of service, Lisovich said he takes the nonprofit’s work seriously. And despite scores of other agencies that are reaching out to those who’ve served, the Marine felt more hands were needed. A tragedy that happens 20 times each day in America was the catalyst. A few years ago during Memorial Day weekend following the news of a veteran’s suicide on social media, Lisovich decided to act. Combining organizational efforts with longtime associate Sue Watson, he repurposed the old Nickelodeon theater used through his business – Wines of America – to create a safe meeting place for veterans at the corner of East 7th Avenue and Amity Street in Homestead, PA. Complete with branch service flags and framed military photographs, the decorum Watson created reflects an atmosphere of a fraternal place for veterans to get together

and talk in comfort. There, veterans work through their problems, and reach out to other like-minded nonprofits and government agencies for assistance. Charted as a nonprofit 501(c)3 in 2019, VHV has been actively helping veterans since June 2020. Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, it has registered more than 80 veterans, logged 370 visits, and scheduled nearly four dozen outreach liaison meetings between veterans and veterans’ service officers, according to its newsletter. Included among the direct services VHV offers are round-trip bus tickets for former servicemembers to go to the Veterans Administration Pittsburgh Healthcare facilities in Pittsburgh and Aspinwall, meals, and laundry kits. Veterans also are provided computer access, and help in navigating the myriad of services available to them. Additionally, VHV is actively working to schedule visits on the first and third Thursday of each month from a Veterans Benefits Administration representative. Veterans will be able to receive information about service-connected compensation, and get answers for individual questions from a government expert. But it is not always strictly business at VHV. “We have many veterans who come in just for the camaraderie,” said Watson. “Rather than a crisis center, we are more like the United Service Organization with a kick.” Watson explained that where other veterans’ organizations and government agencies require appointments, VHV has an open door policy during its scheduled hours. Each veteran’s needs are individually assessed over an intake conversation and a cup of coffee. Watson - the daughter of a World War II Marine veteran - emphasized

that under a shared facilities agreement with Wines of America, the space in the old Nickelodeon theater where VHV operates should not be thought of as a bar or social club. During the time when VHV is actively serving its clientele, no alcohol is served or available. Veterans organizations are nothing new in Allegheny County. One of the oldest active ones – the Veterans of Foreign Wars approved its first constitution and bylaws more than a century ago at what is now the William Pitt Union building on the University of Pittsburgh’s main campus. Across the street on Fifth Avenue stands the large, majestic Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall and Museum. That building was built by Union veterans of the American Civil War who belonged to the Grand Army of the Republic. Like other veterans service organizations such as the VFW, the American Legion and the Disabled American Veterans, VHV encourages servicemembers to support each other through friendship and mutual assistance. It emphasizes camaraderie, connection, coffee and care as the four foundations it is built upon. And as also with the

more senior organizations, it works to connect veterans with help and resources. Many of these government resources for veterans – such as free or low cost health care, disability benefits, pensions and employment preference – were won through the lobbying efforts of veterans service organizations. According to United States Census data, more than 70,000 of the veterans living in Allegheny County are eligible for some or all of these benefits, depending on their service record or need. Watson said VHV made it through its first year of operation on a budget of $2,600. The director estimates that it’ll take roughly ten times that amount to keep the nonprofit’s doors open. For more information about the event, contact Sue Watson at: 412326-1959 (Michael P. Mauer served as an Army photojournalist during Operation Desert Storm. He was awarded the Joint Service Commendation Medal by Gen. H. Norman Schwarzkopf for his actions during the war, and is a life member of VFW Post 914 Intrepid, West Mifflin.)

Local People News South Park Native, Minnesota Twins Pitcher Randy Dobnak, Has Baseball Jersey Retired at College Alma Mater By Matthew Peaslee Randy Dobnak led the South Park baseball team to a WPIAL title in 2013. Now, he’s hoping to win a World Series with the Minnesota Twins. Along the way, Dobnak played baseball at Division II Alderson Broaddus University in Philippi, W.Va. Last month, Dobnak was invited back to his collegiate alma mater and had his No. 00 jersey retired during an Alderson Broaddus basketball game. He helped the Battlers win the Great Midwest Athletic Conference title in 2016 and he is the only graduate of the school to play in Major League Baseball. He pitched in the 2019 playoffs for the Twins and at the beginning of the 2021 season, Dobnak signed a five-year, $9.25 million extension with Minnesota. Dobnak made national headlines shortly after the Twins signed him from the Utica Unicorns, an independent league team in Michigan, in 2017. To supplement his miniscule income as an independent league pitcher, he drove for ride-sharing services Uber and Lyft while he was back home in the South Hills. A video featuring Dobnak’s parents, Randy and

Jodi, went viral in November when their priceless reactions were caught on film. Their son wrote them a heart-warming letter thanking them for their tireless support of his dream to play baseball at the highest level. As a sign of gratitude, their son paid off the remaining balance of their mortgage. “I’ve always dreamt about an opportunity to help my parents for everything they’ve done for our family. I’ll never be able to thank ya’ll enough,” Dobnak said. In 2020, when fans were not allowed to attend games at MLB ballparks, Dobnak returned home to Pittsburgh and started a game against the Pirates. He grew up as a huge Pirates fan and estimates he attended more than 150 games at PNC Park over the years. He was the winning pitcher against his hometown team on Aug. 5, 2020, a 5-2 win for the Twins. Dobnak went six innings, struck out one batter and only allowed three hits. His career MLB record is 9-12 with a 4.94 earned run average. He has 77 strikeouts. Dobnak met his now-wife Aerial while at Alderson Broaddus and the couple now resides in the eastern panhandle of West Virginia.

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. At Superior, our staff enjoy a full list of benefits: paid time off, paid training, health insurance, 401k and biweekly and quarterly performance bonuses, just to name of few. • Ability to work in the community where you live. Home care provides service to people living right in your community, you could be matched with a client who lives in your own community, where you are comfortable and familiar. Home care is perfect for stay at home mom’s with school age children as well as retired persons just looking for a rewarding part-time job. • No previous skill or experience needed! We can train you in all aspects of being a professional caregiver and our unique 90-day onboarding experience will assure you assimilate successfully in your new career. • Career growth potential is great with caregiving. We have our own internal career ladder to promote skill enhancement and growth on our team but opportunities beyond that abound. Caregiving is a springboard for careers in social work, nursing, physical and occupational therapy and even business ownership. Last but not the least is the greatest reason of all you should consider becoming a professional caregiver: the chance to do some of the most meaningful work imaginable on a team with other passionate caregivers. Caregivers intimately touch the lives of those they care for each day. Being able to bring hope, comfort and peace of mind to a person just by showing up and being yourself can be life changing.

Local Worship Catholic Parish Brings Together Children, Families throughout Clairton/Jefferson Hills/Pleasant Hills/West Mifflin By Matthew Peaslee What started as a home-based formation program recently emerged into in-person meetings at a Catholic parish in the South Hills. At recently merged Triumph of the Holy Cross Parish, promoting the faith to young people has been a key tenant over the past year and a half. The parish, made up of St. Clare of Assisi Church in Clairton, St. Elizabeth of Hungary Church in Pleasant Hills, Holy Spirit Church in West Mifflin and St. Thomas A Becket Church in Jefferson Hills,

started a program to encourage family fellowship back in March 2020. It was a way to strengthen families at home while churches were closed and visiting friends and neighbors was discouraged. Aptly titled the Family H.O.M.E. project, it gave parents guidance from the parents on how their children could develop a stronger faith life through prayer and fun research. H.O.M.E. stands for Households On Mission Eternal. Representatives from the parish have hosted online group sessions for interactive lessons on Church his-

In recent months, Triumph of the Holy Cross Parish has welcomed back parishioners to its churches and more events have been able to be carried out as loyal volunteers are ready to get back into helping the community. The H.O.M.E. project members have met for special monthly liturgies and came together for group projects such as making a large cross out of many individual wooden tiles, called the Patchwork Parish Cross. The H.O.M.E. project also partnered with the parish’s Social Concerns Outreach

ministry to complete a service project. This Advent season, children met to discuss the meaning behind the Advent wreath and learned about how Christmas carols can tell the story of Jesus’ birth in the Nativity. This month, the H.O.M.E. project will meet on Sunday, Jan. 9 in Vincentian Hall at St. Thomas A Becket Church at 10:30 a.m.

PAIN MANAGEMENT Q: What are new treatments

for back pain? A: New, minimally-invasive treatments for lumbar spinal stenosis may be the answer. Lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) is the most common reason for patients older than 65 to have spine surgery. Symptomatic LSS can cause low back pain and/or leg pain when walking or standing that is improved with sitting or bending forward. Conservative treatments for LSS have tradiBy Anthony Cuneo, tionally included physical therapy, pain medMD, PhD ications, and injections. While surgery can be Physical Medicine effective for patients that do not improve with Specialist conservative treatments, these operations are The Orthopedic Group invasive and can have procedural and anesthesia complications. There are two new and exciting treatments available to patients with LSS that helps to bridge the gap between conservative treatments and invasive spine surgery. Both treatments address the root cause of spinal stenosis and are outpatient procedures performed at Spartan Health Surgicenter. They take about 45 minutes to perform and do not require general anesthesia. MILD (minimally invasive lumbar decompression) procedures remove excess ligament tissue to restore space in the spinal canal. MILD is as safe as an injection. Restrictions following MILD are minimal, with return to normal activity within a few days. Patients are typically able to walk for 16 times and stand for seven times longer following the procedure. Vertiflex is a spine spacer that can treat up to moderate stenosis. Following the procedure, 80% of patients have improved leg pain and 65% have improved back pain. There are six weeks of restrictions following Vertiflex placement, with potential complications including fracture where the spacer is placed and spacer migration. If you are interested in learning more, please call 724-379-5802 to schedule an appointment at The Orthopedic Group.

Home & Garden How to Go Curtainless This Winter

In the northern hemisphere, the sun's lower winter angle in the sky peers straight into your windows, causing glare, more fading from its UV rays and unwanted hotspots. The usual remedy is to block out the natural daylight with curtains or blinds. However, this may darken the interior and create the need to turn lights on. Then there's the appearance of the home. From the exterior a home's windows may appear disheveled with a drape partially open, a blind a bit crooked and next to it, a curtain pulled tight. (Continued on following page.)

Then there's the cost of curtains, drapes, blinds and shades, that can add up quickly. Can you go "curtainless" and still reduce the sun's glare? "A cost-effective solution is longlasting, professionally installed window films, which can be permanently affixed to the glass by experts in a day or less to windows, doors and skylights. Many designs and features are available, such as privacy films that still allow in natural light, or clear, glare-reducing films that offer energy savings," says Darrell Smith, executive director of the International Window Film Association (IWFA). Window films themselves are hightech systems with multiple performance coatings produced to address specific problems in buildings. They may last 15 years or more and can be installed on single or dual pane windows in good condition, and they may also upgrade the glass to today's energy standards. Window films with the IWFA logo are rated just like windows for their energy savings features. Window film manufacturers and businesses may offer a warranty that not only covers the window film, but may also cover the window glass. "Window films are always 'on' and work when you need them so there is no need to pull drapes, shade or blinds," adds Smith. Other benefits in addition to savings may include enhanced safety, the blocking of up to 99 percent of UV rays and privacy films. Window films may also help to keep heat in during winter and reduce the sun's solar heat by up to 80 percent in summer. Another plus is that a home may have a cleaner, modern look. Get in touch with a local window film business at www.iwfa.com before the sun forces you to be in the dark.

An easy interface lets prospective chefs choose from six food programs (smoothie, soup, chop, ice crush, frozen dessert and spread) and three different textures (smooth, medium, and course), to create 18 possible blends that will suit any palate. Other innovative key features include a triangular jug design to reduce waste by keeping ingredients from getting stuck in corners, and a German-forged Precision Edge blade for durability and performance. But wait, there's more: The Braun TriForce Power Blender cleans up after itself with a self-cleaning setting and an easy-to-wipe surface.

Renters Rely On Reviews And Ratings During Pandemic (NAPSI)—The search for a new place to rent can bring challenges and stresses, but pandemic concerns and restrictions on in-person tours can make that search more difficult. As a solution, renters are skipping the physical tours and going digital to vet communities. As such, online ratings and reviews have become critical for many renters seeking new spaces.

Expert Opinion “More than 85% of all renters industrywide indicate they read reviews before making a decision on which apartment they want to live in. That’s significant,” said Mike Gomes, chief experience officer for Cortland, which owns and operates more than 200 apartment communities across the (Continued on following page.)

Through a responsive customer care team and a tenantfocused service philosophy, it has maintained its position as the No. 1 property management brand in online reputation. “When the lockdowns started, our teams had to not only begin to care for our Cortland residents in an unprecedented way, but also quickly pivot to a leasing and touring experience that was mostly—and at times entirely— digital,” Gomes said. Amazon, Google and other e-commerce sites have seen consumers make purchasing decisions based on online ratings and reviews from fellow consumers. It’s no different for apartment communities.

(Continued from page 29) the full reviews. Apartment communities with reviews that laud service managers as friendly and responsive, or with reviews that commend the premises for being well-maintained, will win out every time over an equally rated property with less-than-glowing reviews. The many factors that cause renters to rate or review a community positively or negatively have some basis on the physical state of their community, such as cleanliness and available amenities. However, there are many intangible factors, including customer service and a sense of security and community, that can help drive those ratings, according to Gomes. And according to the 2021 Property Management Report by Reputation, renters now leave more reviews than ever, “with positive sentiment centered around digital tools used by property managers and the speed at which building staff respond to various requests.” Customers are savvy, Gomes said. “They know that the first glance at the physical property doesn’t tell the full story,” he added. “They can pass some judgment on a community’s perceived safety by driving by the community at night, but they know it’s very different from knowing if a community is a safe and quiet place to live. It will not tell them if the management and maintenance team are responsive and friendly. But online reviews from people who live in those communities will.”

BACKYARDING TRENDS IN 2022: TurfMutt Foundation Predicts Americans Will Continue to Expand Outdoor Living

(NAPSI)—“Backyarding”—the trend to move indoor activities outdoors that was made popular during the pandemic —is here to stay and will continue to expand in 2022, according to the TurfMutt Foundation, an environmental education and stewardship program that encourages outdoor living and caring for green spaces. “Backyarding is a way of life now,” says Kris Kiser, president and CEO of the Foundation and its parent organization, the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute (OPEI). The TurfMutt Foundation predicts the following backyarding trends for 2022: Lines between the indoors and the outdoors continue to blur. Doors and windows will be opened to the great outdoors and more people will enjoy breakfast or a nightcap on the deck. Decorating choices will marry the outside and the inside, with colors and tones that provide more visual connection between indoor areas and the backyard, for a seamless transition. Offices turn to the outdoors. There will be no need to turn to technology to create a virtual backdrop for video calls. Privacy screens, electrical outlets and Wi-Fi extenders become more common. Kids (and adults) spends more time outside learning. Kids will take (Continued on following page.)

They brush up on STEM concepts (TurfMutt’s free lesson plans can help) by planting and studying flowers, bugs and weather. Al fresco dining becomes the norm. Grills, pizza ovens and overhead lighting with seating will make many homes outdoor eateries for families and neighbors. Interest in outdoor kitchens, pergolas, shade sails and landscaping will define and enhance outdoor dining. Business deals get cooked up in backyards. While socializing around fire pits and watching the kids play, adults will have the informal conversations that used to happen in other venues. Games of croquet and cornhole could turn easily into business networking opportunities. The backyard is the first place people turn to for relaxation and stress relief. Yoga, hammocks, reading nooks, calming water features and more add spa-like features to the backyard. More people plant with peace of mind at heart, adding colors that make them feel good. Outdoor entertainment evolves. Movie projectors with sound systems and outdoor screens turn the yard into a theater. Expect to see fire pits, outdoor games and more. Homeowners will plant with wildlife in mind. Knowing the backyard is a habitat for pollinators, insects, birds and other wildlife, homeowners likely will choose plants, trees and shrubs that nurture and support wildlife. Pampering pets only increases. Fencing, sandpiles for digging, doghouses and even agility courses for pets to enjoy will become common. More people discover their backyarding personality types and design a yard that matches their outdoor lifestyles. They will map out their yards, take an inventory of tools and equipment available to create and maintain their dream and then work hard to create a defined backyard that meets their needs.

READER ADVISORY: Reader Advisory: the National Trade Association we belong to has purchased the following classifieds. Determining the value of their service or product is advised by this publication. In order to avoid misunderstandings, some advertisers do not offer “employment” but rather supply the readers with manuals, directories and other materials designed to help their clients establish mail order selling and other businesses at home. 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.
