Championship Teams From the 80’s Honored at Ringgold High School Football Game By Matthew Peaslee Two teams from Ringgold High School were honored at Joe Montana Stadium on Friday, Sept. 16, before the Ringgold High vs. West Mifflin game. The 1982 football team coached by Billy Connors won the WPIAL Quad A championship title and the 1987 football team coached by Joe Ravasio won the Big Ten Conference championship and went undefeated during section play as the first team in school history to go without a loss in the regular season. “I was blessed to coach that team,” Ravasio said. There is a unique connection between those teams, too. In 1982, the Rams beat New Castle, 6-3, at old Pitt Stadium to win the WPIAL title. In the closing Joining the festivities of Ringgold’s championship teams were players and coaches (Left to Right): From 1982, Shawn White and minutes as New Castle was drivLynn Price. And from 1987 Dave Strange, coach George Overton, Coach Joe Ravasio, Don Law, and Jason Thompson. ing toward a touchdown, the Ringgold defense came up with a big stop. On a fullback dive within the Rams’ two-yard line, New Castle fumbled and Ringgold’s Harry McCullough recovered it. In 1987, McCullough’s brother, Marcus, was a team captain. Marcus is now the head coach of the present-day Rams. “It’s a common denominator between two great teams,” Ravasio said. Marcus McCullough has been a high school football coach in the area for nearly 30 years with other stops at Clairton, Monessen, Yough, McKeesport, Summit Academy and South Allegheny.

NOTE FROM THE PUBLISHER: The Media Does Not Exist to Be an Echo Chamber. ECHO CHAMBER : (“An environment in which a person encounters only beliefs or opinions that coincide with their own, so that their existing views are reinforced and alternative ideas are not considered.”) Over the last 4 weeks, we have received numerous calls and e-mails in response to a ‘Letter to the Editor’ that was submitted by one of our readers, and printed in our October issue. The letter titled – “Save our Country – We must vote Republican in November” prompted quite a few people to submit their own letters in support or, or in disagreement with the author. I was happy to see so much engagement and feedback from our readers! Because, regardless of what side of the political aisle you fall on – these responses were exactly the type of discourse and public forum that we strive to provide. As you will see, the “Letters to the Editor” in this November issue, offer a variety of differing viewpoints. (We could not print every submission that we received due to space constraints, but we made sure to include as many as we could, and have perspectives from both sides of the aisle). What surprised me (and disappointed me) were the calls and letters that we received that questioned our decision to print the submission in the October issue in the first place. Those who disagreed with the author’s opinions and comments said that we should have never printed it. That the author’s opinions had no right to be seen or heard. A few people even went so far as to call us “idiots” and that we “stooped to a new low”, and that our paper is “trash” and they “will never pick it up again.” We were told that we were pushing “lies” and “misinformation.” Wow. And all of this backlash simply because we provided a free, public forum for one of our readers to express their personal

views and opinions about the state of our country. Let me be clear to anyone who agrees with those sentiments noted above. We do not, and will not suppress free speech. Ever. Any Letters to the Editor that we print in the paper are the opinions and views of the author, and only the author. And we welcome their submissions – regardless if we agree or disagree. We do not exist to be an “echo chamber.” Anyone who lives in this country should understand the First Amendment, freedom of speech and freedom of the press. In today’s hyper-sensitive political climate, it seems that anything we disagree with is labeled as a lie or misinformation, misleading or fake news, and too many people want to silence those they disagree with. We won’t allow that to happen. Opinions are neither lies or facts. They are opinions. Viewpoints expressed from the perspective of that individual. You don’t have to agree. As a matter of fact – you are welcome to disagree, debate and challenge those opinions by submitting your own. Or – you can simply skip past the page and on to another article that better suits you taste. But don’t blame the Messenger for providing the forum that permits this free exchange of opinions and ideas. That’s one of the reasons we exist. And that’s never going to change as long as I’m the publisher. Sincerely, Douglas E. Haniford, Publisher

Voters Cannot Blame Any One Party For All That Is Wrong With Society Dear Editor: I guess I must be in the category of 3 in 4 Democrats who do not believe men can be pregnant. Pity the poor fourth Democrat who bemoans his inability to conceive. A recent letter to the Editor educated us on the merits of the WPA Intelligence poll that proclaimed “1 in 4 Democrat voters believe men can get pregnant”. This poll was the lead reason why you good voters should join the Republican band wagon. The letter also educated me on more than 15 major ills of American society, the fault of which lies solely with the party that has lost “all common sense and decency.” You might think I’m one of those - a hated Democrat. In reality I was a Republican for 50 years, until the Republican Party became the Trump party. You might think I urge you to vote Democrat. Not at all. Vote your conscience as well as your pocket book. Educated voters cannot blame any one party for all that is wrong with society. Educated voters also know where baby’s come from. Malvin G. Sander - Peters Twp.

Reader Thinks the October Letter to the Editor Author is an Idiot Dear Editor, The letter that you printed on page 2 of your October issue shows the writer is a Trump poisoned Republican idiot. By printing this letter you have stooped to a new low in publishing. I guess the letter writer isn’t the only Trump poisoned idiot around. Dick Giannamore - Webster

Republicans Need to Take a Stand and Speak the Truth

Patriotic American, MAGA Supporter and Proud of It

Dear Editor; I had to respond to the “Save Our Country” letter submitted by Chris Jones of Washington, PA. Mr. Jones was able to put into words exactly what I have been thinking for a long time now. I have spent most of my life as a member of the Democratic Party. As I started paying more attention to what was going on around me, I realized that the Democratic Party of my parents is a far cry from the one of today. I am now a Republican, and while my party isn’t perfect, it still upholds the ideals on which this great country was built. The far left lives with the misconception that they are the party of compassion, while the right is selfish and opportunistic. This is simply not true. The liberals need to come to terms with their unfounded anger before our country can become the great land of the free that it once was. It’s not easy expressing these opinions in todays climate, but Republicans need to take a stand and speak the truth. Kudos to Chris Jones for his heartfelt letter. I was inspired by reading it.

Dear Editor; I’ve loved to “pledge allegiance to the flag and to the United States of America” since elementary school, putting my hand over my heart because my teacher said it meant that I meant it. I remember loving John F. Kennedy when he talked about “what we could do for our Country.” As a teenager, I remember asking my dad what it was like to serve in WWII, discovering he just turned 17 when he went to Japan. I remember his pride regarding serving America, although he admitted he had no clue what war entailed until he experienced it. He never went into details, until I found pictures and he then talked about Japan and what it meant to “do the things we could do for our Country” as a soldier. My respect for veterans grew that day, as has my patriotism and love for my Country. You can then imagine what I and other American Patriots like me felt like on 9/1/22 when we were called a “threat to America’s democracy” by Joe Biden because we hoped to Make America Great Again (MAGA) and supported the person behind that phrase, Donald J. Trump. We were called “a greater threat” than any other, including spies intent on sabotaging our Country or “illegal” immigrants entering our borders, some coming with the intent of distributing drugs (Fentanyl) or trafficking people. I sat in disbelief hearing a sitting president say Donald Trump and MAGA Republicans were “the biggest threat to the very soul of this Country!” I heard Joe Biden speak this way about me and many Americans because of our audacity of wanting America to be great. I heard him say MAGA Republicans were “extremists,” a word never used regarding ANTIFA or BLM rioters who terrorized, looted, and burned down businesses. We were told back then by Nancy Pelosi and others that these groups were just “demonstrators exercising their freedoms.” We heard “freedom exercisers” encouraged to increase their unlawful actions by several seated Democrats. This hypocrisy and increase of far-left leanings made my family change parties, as we sadly watched the Democrat Party go farther away from their roots as the workingman’s or blue-collar Party (my grandpap’s words). I never thought I’d hear Joe Biden speak like this to Americans who he’s supposed to work for, not against — the Joe Biden whose tearful campaign promise was how he’d be America’s “unifier.” I respectfully suggest that Joe Biden take a closer look at the Constitution and rule of law and respectfully suggest he not continue to flip-flop his support of law enforcement for political gain. Insight was gained from his speech/rant as to what he thinks of Americans who disagree with him. Although meant to be derogatory and divisive by Hillary Clinton and now by Joe Biden, I’m signing this as a “Deplorable ULTRA MAGA,” a proud, patriotic American who loves her Country, just like her dad did.

Community Newspapers Should Not Print Political Viewpoints Dear Editor, The South Hills – Mon Valley Messenger should not be printing letters to the editor of an extreme political nature like that of Chris Jones. I'm not sure why this letter was printed. Perhaps it's intended for a good laugh considering the statements made throughout the letter attributing various activities to ONLY Democrats. Does the author know for a fact, for example, that there are no cross-dressing Republicans? I would also say that few people know much about Critical Race Theory as it is often used politically. Reading the original books that form the foundation of CRT would be a start. There are just too many assumptions in Mr. Jones letter to take it seriously. So as I said, it must have been meant as humor. But if not then shame on the Messenger for having printed this. George Dziamniski - Finleyville

Mrs. Carol DeUsanio - South Park

elry is priced from $1 to $5, and everything is checked to make sure it is not broken or missing any stones. Since its inception, the sale has raised $87,000 – last year's total was $12,000 – and Gasior said the goal is to hit the $100,000 mark this year.

Andrew Amrhein has held the offices of Treasurer and President during his six years of service on the Bethel Park Public Library board. He is also a prominent member of the community and small business owner, and a trustee member of the Pennsylvania Library Association. Andy is a man of big ideas. He created the annual Bethel Park Fantastic Four Golf Outing that benefits four of Bethel Park’s non-profit organizations: the Bethel Park Community Foundation, the Bethel Park Education Foundation, the Bethel Park Historical Society and the Bethel Park Public Library. In 2021, this event raised over $40,000 for these organizations. This event would not have been so successful without Andy’s tireless work and the sponsors he secured. Andy was also instrumental in making the library’s “Love Your Library” fundraising campaign a success in 2021. He set an ambitious fundraising goal of $50,000, much higher than the library had ever raised during this campaign in previous years. When the library was nearly $900 shy of the

goal on September 30th, Andy made a personal donation that put the library over the $50,000 mark. With Andy’s help, the Bethel Park Public Library has formed valuable partnerships with other community organizations. He has introduced library staff to key employees with the County Parks, South Park Theatre and the Bethel Park School District. These connections have resulted in numerous ongoing library programs, events and activities. For example, the library now hosts a summer story time at the outdoor theater in South Park. In turn, the cast of the Children’s Theatre productions come to the library to give the children a preview of their upcoming shows each month. The library’s new part-

nership with the County Parks enabled the library to host an outdoor Party in the Park that raised $22,000 for the library and South Park Theatre. Library staff are also now involved with several student clubs in the schools, have served on the school district’s strategic planning committee and are consulting with the high school principal on a school library refresh. As with most libraries, the Bethel Park Public Library was struggling to find space to store donated books for their annual book sale. When Andy heard about this dilemma, he sent a crew of his own employees to the library with a truck and moved all the book sale items to a warehouse he uses for his small business. When the pandemic made it impossible for the library to safely hold the book sale in one of their meeting rooms like they have in years past, Andy offered to host the book sale in his store’s parking lot. His employees erected a canopy, moved all the materials out of the warehouse, set up the tables and even helped pack up leftover items after the sale ended. The library raised more money from that book sale than ever before. The library board is more inclusive thanks to Andy’s connections. Municipal council and school board liaisons now serve on the library board, which fosters better communication between the library and these two entities. This improved communication has led to more consistent funding from the municipality

'Home for the Holidays' House Tour Resumes in the Mon Valley By Lois Thomson If you notice a woman approaching your door carrying a loaf of zucchini bread, don't be concerned; rather, be flattered. It might be Kim Ciccarelli, and she may be asking for your consent to feature your home on the Mon Valley "Home for the Holidays" House Tour. "The former Dent Home in Ciccarelli started the tours in 2015 Brownstown is one of the featured after her cousin invited her to go on homes on the tour." one in Uniontown to benefit a children's fund. "That was my first house tour, and on the way home I thought this would be a great community project I could do because we have a lot of beautiful homes in the Belle Vernon area," she said. The tour – interrupted for two years by Covid – has since expanded to neighboring areas, and this year includes homes in Monessen, Donora, and Brownstown near Fayette City. In choosing the homes, Ciccarelli said, "I look at them from the outside. If the outside is well groomed, chances are the inside is, too. Some are wellknown in the area and have been a focal point for years. I knock on the doors and I usually have a homemade zucchini bread in my hand. Rejections are hard, but so many people are nice. Some say not this year, so I put them on my list for next year."12 She said she asks them to open the whole house because many people enjoy seeing not only the Christmas decorations, but the architecture of the house as well. Ciccarelli's purpose in starting the tours was to donate the money to local charities, and the first recipient was a drug awareness program at Belle Vernon High School, which received about $3,000. Since then, area libraries, food banks, and the Salvation Army have benefited, and this year, Ciccarelli said, "Our money is going to what's called the Bag Brigade, an organization that was created by some women in Rostraver Township." She explained the Bag Brigade is for low-income children who need a helping hand. The Brigade puts together up to 200 lunch packs and distributes them to kids so they have food to eat over the weekend. Money will also be donated to benefit Washington Township senior citizens; to Alliance Church in Brownstown, which is on the tour and features a 300-piece nativity display; and to the Donora Historical Society. A Chinese auction will also be held at house number 4 – Carrie and Susan Moore, the former Dent Manor in Brownstown. For more information or to reserve a tickets, call 724-747-5191.

It’s been another highly-successful fall sports season for Thomas Jefferson High School, with three Jaguar squads earning 3A Section championships as WPIAL Tournament competition nears. The TJ boys soccer, girls soccer and girls volleyball teams all clinched their respective 3A Section titles. The Thomas Jefferson boys and girls soccer squads won Section championships in the same year for the first time in school history. The girls soccer defeated Ringgold, 4-0, to earn its first Section championship since 2000. “I was just really happy and relieved at the same time,” said third-year TJ girls soccer head coach Sean Richter. “The girls deserved it (Section title); I really wanted it for them. For the seniors who will be moving on to leave

their mark and, for all the players who are coming back, to keep it going. They saw that hard work pays off. We can keep building off this season. The players now know what it took to get there and what it will take to be considered one of the top teams in 3A.” Girls soccer finished Section play with a 13-1 record (15-2 overall). The TJ boys soccer team won its second straight Section crown and ninth Section title under head coach Dr. Michael “Doc” Kulish. The Jaguars finished Section play with a 13-1 record (15-2 overall). The TJ girls volleyball squad won its second consecutive Section title, 10th in the past 11 years, and 18th overall under head coach Ron Kelly. The Jaguars are 12-0 in Section play (13-1 overall) at the time of this writing.

Donora Historical Society And Smog Museum Has Vintage High School Sports Films Of Mon Valley Schools Among the many items that the Donora Historical Society has in its collection are over 125 basketball and football games of Mon Valley teams from 1955 to 1979. They are original 16mm films that are mostly converted to DVD (104 out of 125). We launched the project in 2015 to start to transfer the films to DVD to not only get them in a usable format to be added to our artifact collection and our presentation offerings, but to get these games in the hands of the players that played in them some 35 to 65 years ago. Some games feature extensive footage of parent’s nights, football coaches, cheerleaders and bands. Most games sell for $25/game plus S&H. For games that have yet to be converted, there is a cost to transfer to

DVD that includes a copy charge. This charge can range from $40.00 to $70.00 depending on the game's length. If you are interested in a particular game that hasn't been converted, please let us know by sending an email. As you can see below in our inventory list, all of the Mon Valley teams are represented in most years. Some of the legendary Donora players include Larry Crawford, Malcolm Lomax, Bernie Galiffa, Ken Griffey, Art Coleman and Ulice Payne. Other notable players such as: Fred Cox (Monongahela); Gary Seykoski and John Radic (Ringgold); Larry Hughes and Ken Burkes (Rostraver);

Home & Garden Pre-Season Prep: 5 Tips For Winterizing Your Home (BPT) - From prepping the outdoors to indoors, here are five things you can do to get your home ready for winter. Clear your gutters and roof. Gutters are essential in keeping your home dry as they divert rain and snow away from your roof, preventing water from infiltrating your home and causing damage. Removing dead leaves and debris from your gutters can help prevent potential ice dams, gutter detachment and overflows. While you're up there, remove any debris or branches that may have collected on the roof and look for missing or damaged shingles that need to be replaced. Seal around windows and doors. One of the most effective ways to save on heating bills is by sealing your doors and windows. Moisture and cold air can seep through the small openings and cracks of doors and windows, causing your home to feel drafty and chilly while increasing your energy bill. Stay warm and protect your home by replacing exterior caulk with a weatherproof sealant like Dynaflex (Continued on page 25.)

extreme temperatures while protecting against mold and mildew as well as damage from harsh weather. Insulate your attic. Once you've sealed your home, you want the warm air to stay in and not go up and out through your attic, so head up there to make sure it's properly insulated. Add more insulation as needed and be sure to weatherstrip any windows, doors or openings that lead into the attic. An insulated attic can also prevent damage to your roof and reduce the chances of ice dams forming. Change the direction of your ceiling fans. It's common knowledge that hot air rises, but did you know you can use your ceiling fans to maximize airflow? Locate a small switch on the motor of your fan and flip it the opposite direction so your fan rotates clockwise. Setting your fan in a clockwise direction will help distribute warm air around the room and reduce heating costs. For more tips and products to winterize your home, visit DAP.com.

Fresh air is a terrific option for banishing bad smells. Throwing open windows creates a cross breeze that can chase stale, musty air away in a hurry. You can also improve your air quality by adding house plants, which naturally help purify the air by absorbing pollutants and exchanging carbon dioxide for oxygen. Plants like jasmine, eucalyptus and gardenias also offer their own pleasant scents.

Textiles and other soft surfaces throughout your home easily trap odor-causing bacteria, dust and other particles that can contribute to unsavory smells. That’s why it’s a good idea to regularly give the rugs, carpet, bedding, throw pillows, curtains and other soft surfaces throughout your home a deep cleaning. If you can’t machine wash an item, use a vacuum with a hose attachment to remove as many hidden particles as possible.

be your towel. That’s especially true if, like many people, you reuse a towel several times before washing it. Hangdrying your towel may not be enough to chase away smell-inducing bacteria. However, the growth of bacteria is reduced on heat-dried towels by as much as 99%, according to a study commissioned by Amba Products. The line of heated towel racks produces radiant heat to gently warm and dry towels. That can help eliminate moisture, resulting in less growth of mold and mildew. They also offer time, water and energy savings, plus some models come ready to use and take as little as 5 minutes to set up.

Simmer Fresh Aromas If you need to add a pleasant scent in a hurry, such as just before hosting a special event for guests, consider simmering something that smells delicious on the stove. Simmering a blend of orange slices, cloves and cinnamon in a pot of water over low heat produces a subtle, pleasing scent that doesn’t overpower the room. Diffusers, candles and room sprays can also help add appealing smells in rooms that may need some extra attention.

Clean Common Culprits Every household has some common culprits and, if you’re noticing smells, you may need to step up your game to keep these areas clean. Trash cans, litter boxes and pet beds all need regular attention that goes beyond the basics. Make a point of not only emptying the trash but also cleaning the trash can itself. Don’t just scoop the litter box. Replace the entire pan at least weekly. Strip and wash the exterior covering of pet beds and air out the cushion. Keeping your home clean and smelling great does not have to be complicated. Maintaining a regular cleaning schedule and incorporating ways to purify and enhance the air can make the space more enjoyable. To get your home refresh started, visit ambaproducts.com.

ASK the

EXPERTS OPHTHALMOLOGY Q: When do I need cataract sur-

gery? What are my options if I do? A: A cataract is the clouding of the natural lens within the eye. Virtually all of us will get cataracts as we age. Cataract formation is usually a gradual process and vision changes can be subtle. Common symptoms include blurred or dim vision, sensitivity to light with glare, seeing halos, difficulty with night vision, and needing brighter light for reading. Often, the prescripBy Aaron S. Wang, tion of your glasses changes frequently, with M.D. diminishing improvements with each change. Ophthalmologist Ophthalmologists recommend a comprehenGlaucoma-Cataract sive eye exam to have your visual acuity measConsultants, Inc ured and your eyes (pupils) dilated. A special microscope called a slit lamp is utilized to view and grade your cataract. You will be evaluated for other eye diseases, such as glaucoma or macular degeneration as well. The decision to proceed with cataract surgery is based on how much the cataract interferes with your vision and daily activities. There is usually no rush, but the surgery can become more urgent if, for example, you fail to have adequate vision for driving. Fortunately, cataract surgery is one of the safest and most effective procedures. Typically, it is an outpatient procedure done under light intravenous (IV) sedation. Through microscopic incisions, your cloudy natural lens is emulsified; with ultrasonic energy and is replaced with a clear artificial lens. This artificial lens is called an intraocular lens (IOL). Your vision should significantly improve over the next few days as long as you use your prescribed post-surgical eye drops. There are different surgical options, including upgrades that can be associated with out-of-pocket expenses. Standard cataract surgery with a basic IOL is covered by insurance. It is a fine option if you are comfortable wearing glasses for both distance and near vision after surgery. Upgraded options leverage the latest technologies, including laser-assisted cataract surgery, intra-operative aberrometry, and premium IOLs (toric and/or multifocal IOLs). These technologies deliver customized surgery, address optical irregularities of your eyes, such as astigmatism, and minimize spectacle dependence. You can choose to

Box 13363, Pittsburgh, PA 15243 or e-mail news@messengerpaper.com reduce your need for glasses for distance vision or near vision or both. An ophthalmologist will meet with you for a cataract evaluation, with the intention of learning your individual visual needs, answering all of your questions, and guiding you toward the most appropriate option for which you may qualify. In addition to the options mentioned, an ophthalmologist can also offer “drop-less” cataract surgery if you have difficulty instilling eye drops. Typically, regardless of which surgical option is chosen, the surgery takes minutes, you leave without a stitch or patch, and the improvement is life changing. A corneal sub-specialist, such as myself, can also perform a number of treatments concurrently with your cataract surgery if you have other co-existing eye diseases. An example includes the latest in corneal transplantation (DSAEK, DMEK) for Fuchs’ Corneal Dystrophy. Another example is minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) to lower your eye pressure. Combined surgery, when needed, provides convenience and the quickest route to your best possible vision.

He subsequently completed a fellowship at Shiley Eye Center, UC San Diego Health. Dr. Wang practices with Glaucoma-Cataract Consultants, Inc. To contact Dr. Wang, please call 724-483-3688.

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.
