History flashback: The Pittsburgh Press, Nov 24, 1907, a swimming expo in Oakland and East Liberty

Glory years. They are ahead of us, yet! 

Pittsburgh, we're going to bring back the big aquatic events, with a modern twist and spin of a SKWIM disk. In 2019, we have some news to share, as of the end of January. Stay tuned.

Thanks to a friend and fellow coach, S, for sending along the pointer to this article. 

The 2019 Events are going to be called, Aquatic Jamborees.

Stay in tune with Coach Mark as we plan for the summer.

Jeepers, 92 pages from the URA on the South Side

My wife and I lived in the South Side since 1990. Raised our kids here, but they're out of Pittsburgh now, but this is our neighborhood, and many others are fond of it too.

Like most things in life, change happens. We're all fine with change -- as long as it is for the good.

Sadly the guy we have on City Council talks out of both sides of his mouth and is ineffective. "Clean and Green." Yeah, right. I say a prayer every day for Mayor Peduto, because what's next in line is unthinkable.

The South Side survived, in large part because the URA stayed the hell out of this neighborhood for many years. The URA has been known to do a lot of damage to various parts around town.

The parking issues are slightly better and are going to improve even more because of UBER and LYFT. Don't drive to the South Side. Take an Uber for goodness sakes.

The thing that hasn't changed, and what shouldn't change, is RESPECT. We live, work, play, socialize, worship, shop, heal, retire and learn in tight spaces right next to each other. Respect the space between the two worlds, and all goes well. Behave. Show some decency and respect. And if yinz don't, your car will get towed.

Being literate in a modern world also means being able to code.

Friday events at Mt. Lebanon swim pool for water polo and SKWIM with guardians

Lifeguards, triathletes, hockey players, basketball players and coaches as well as adults, parents, teachers, guardians and kids — of course — come to a fun water workout on Friday evenings when there isn’t a home football game at Mt. Lebanon’s indoor, new, high school swim pool from 7:30 to 9 pm. Show up at 7:15 if you can so we can transition into activities and have some time to chat before we begin.
