FIRST combines the excitement of sports with science and technology to create a unique varsity Sport for the Mind™.

This three day event is free and open to the public.
Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald says county police who patrol county parks are under-utilized. He wants to replace about 50 county police with 20 park rangers. No police will be laid off and park rangers would conduct more programs for the visiting public. Fitzgerald says the police will be reassigned to communities that are experiencing spikes in homicides, drug activity and other serious crimes.
