Is it unPittsburghly of Kennywood to pick Hunt’s over Heinz? | Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

For the first time, Kennywood is serving Hunt’s ketchup with its chicken tenders, fries and hog dogs. And people are none too happy about it, chief among them North Shore resident Will Koz.

When the 31-year-old got wind of the concession stand switch up earlier this week, he started a petition on Change.org  to bring the city’s much-loved Heinz ketchup back to the park for its 121st season.

“THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE!”  he wrote in his online plea to supporters on May 25. “Blasphemy!”

With Heinz and Kennywood being such huge staples in Pittsburgh, Mr. Koz said he found it odd that the two entities had parted ways.

Pa. Dept. Of Health Declares Hepatitis A Outbreak, Allegheny County Hit Hardest – CBS Pittsburgh

The state’s department of health has declared a hepatitis A outbreak and Allegheny County is one of the hardest hit counties.

Hepatitis A is a liver infection, caused by the virus and it spreads from person-to-person after someone puts something in their mouth that has been contaminated with the fecal matter of a person infected with the virus.

People at risk for contracting the virus are:

 

  • A person that has encountered a person with hepatitis A
  • People who use intravenous drugs
  • Homeless
  • Men that have sex with other men

 

Symptoms are mild and can last several weeks. More severe infections could last several months and many people infected do not experience any symptoms.

Mon Incline REOPENS| TribLIVE.com

The incline has been out of service since Feb. 4 to repair damage caused by flooding. On Jan. 19, a Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority water main that runs along Grandview Avenue in Mt. Washington broke, flooding the upper station and forcing it to close for five days.

Two weeks later, that same water main broke in two separate locations causing extensive damage.

“I want to thank the residents and businesses in the Hilltop communities, especially those in Mt. Washington, who have been extremely patient over the last three months,” Port Authority of Allegheny County Development Officer David Huffaker said in a news release. “Closing the incline for an extended period of time certainly was difficult, but for safety reasons had to be done.”

Inspectors from the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry authorized the reopening of the incline Thursday afternoon
