Super Steelers…Super Win…Super Bowl!
How ‘bout them Stillers! Last Sunday evening our beloved black ‘n gold pulled off one of their patented fourth quarter comebacks to defeat the Arizona Cardinals 27-23 in Super Bowl XLIII at Raymond James Stadium in
It was the culmination of one of the most exciting seasons in Steeler history and it was a tribute to the players, the coaching staff, the management and all the intrepid fans who hung in there all season long, supporting the team at every turn; that is, all the fans who behaved themselves before, during, and after one of the greatest Super Bowls ever! There certainly was more than justification for jubilation in

Unfortunately, there was one blemish on Sunday’s Super Bowl night. The hooligan element took over in some places and turned the celebration into a night of irresponsible, reckless be behavior.

But in spite of these troublemakers, the vast majority of fans celebrated in a sensible way and for that we congratulate the police and other security personnel who did an admirable job of keeping the fun and frivolity under control.
And now, with the Super Bowl Steelers coveting yet another Lombardi Trophy, we can all look forward to a number 7 Super Bowl win a year from now. So, after a few months rest and relaxation, it’ll be time again for our exhortation…
Here we go Steelers…here we go…all the way the 7th heaven!

State Rep. Dom Costa from Stanton Heights, is introducing a bill that would create a state receivership to work in tandem with the state Public Utility Commission overseeing improvements at Pittsburg's troubled water and sewer authority.
