Guide to Pittsburgh Area Credit Unions

Guide to Pittsburgh Area Credit Unions

Credit Unions are financial institutions owned and controlled by the union’s members.  More of a populist way to do your banking, it’s no wonder credit unions appeal to Pittsburghers’ working-class, do-it-yourself sensibilities.  The Pittsburgh area is home to numerous credit unions, some have exclusive memberships and others more open.  The following is a list of many of the area’s largest credit unions.

Hauntingly Good Times: Haunted Houses in Pittsburgh

Hauntingly Good Times: Haunted Houses in Pittsburgh

It’s that time of year again. The air is cooler, the leaves are changing, and darkness descends earlier. The time of year when the scratching of a branch against your bedroom window easily turns into the decaying finger of a Zombie; when silver clouds passing across a full moon provoke visions of werewolves; and shadows falling across the floor inspire thoughts of lurking monsters. At […]

Neighborhood Notes: West Deer – “The Rural Life in West Deer Township”

Neighborhood Notes: West Deer - "The Rural Life in West Deer Township"

Drive a half-hour outside of downtown Pittsburgh and you’ll find yourself in the country. It’s one of the wonderful things about Pittsburgh, in my opinion, that we can enjoy the rural life and still be so close to the city (or vice versa for you city dwellers). If you head north on Rt. 28, then west on Rt. 910, you’ll come to West Deer Township. […]

PCTV – Pittsburgh’s Newly Renovated, High-Tech Soapbox

We’ve all heard the saying “use it or lose it.” It’s most often applied to physical health and exercise, but that saying is also apt when it comes to a community’s health and the exercising of rights — particularly the right to free speech. Pittsburgh Community Television’s mission is to encourage the residents of the city of Pittsburgh and local nonprofit organizations to exercise their […]

The New Ways to Work in Pittsburgh’s Shared Spaces

The New Ways to Work in Pittsburgh's Shared Spaces

The places where we work change with time. In centuries past, the workplace was primarily the home or farm. With the onset of the Industrial Revolution, workers moved into factories, and as the shift moved to administration and service-based economies, much of the workforce flocked into office towers where mazes of cubicles flourished. Transitions such as these are often times subtle. Today, where we work […]

Autumn: Pittsburgh’s Best Season

Autumn: Pittsburgh’s Best Season

  When my son was a toddler, he used to watch Barney, and while I found the purple dinosaur a bit annoying, each year when the days begin to grow shorter and the cicadas commence their symphony, ironically, I find myself singing a Barney song called “I Like Autumn.” That’s because I do like this season and, for a number of reasons, I think it […]

The State of the State Stores: Our Crazy Liquor Laws

In 2003, CBS News ran a segment on a California wine called Charles Shaw that was selling phenomenally well. The reason? Prior to the report, Charles Shaw’s Shiraz had beaten out 2,300 other wines to garner the gold medal at the Annual International Eastern Wine Competition.
