Alle-Kiski Tuesday takes
Unlocking the Allegheny: It appears the Allegheny River Development Corp. and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers are working their way toward an agreement to open the Allegheny River locks in Armstrong County. The development folks have come up with several solid ideas to open the locks for recreational boaters next year. The Corps opened the locks the past two weekends and they were busy. Keep talking.
21st century house calls: AK Pulser paramedics have a new medical device: an iPad. With it, doctors make virtual house calls on emergency patients, thereby getting the patient in front of a doctor even faster. Its use also helps first responders do their jobs better and can prevent unnecessary emergency room visits. And it's nice to see these devices used for something more important than updating one's Facebook status.
Congrats!: Joshua Broadnax. Under his nom de rap, “T-Grizz,” Broadnax's song “Johnny” won best single in the Pittsburgh Underground Music Awards. “Johnny” tells the tale of a young gangster trying to leave the life and the video, shot in New Kensington, can be seen on YouTube (rough language alert!). Broadnax is a 2004 Valley High School grad and former Viking football player.
