Seems as if it is going to be a bumpy ride, sadly.
Most of my ideas on the new leader of Pittsburgh Public Schools have been posted on the Facebook walls of mine and others.
Never had the pleasure of knowing or meeting this couple who also named their first son, Mark.
Happy 50th from Pittsburgh, PA!
Listen to three stories from Catherine.
Three proposals went to answer the call from the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership’s BetaBurgh RFP.
One of the plans, called, Rauterkus.com, aims to begin the process of conducting a feasibility study in 2016 for the building of one or more floating swim pools on one or more barges. It might be possible to get the project to a crowd-source stage (i.e., Kickstarter or Indiegogo).
Two other plans are in the works too:
- Swim.CLOH.org is for open water swimming.
- 4RS.org is for building two in-river lagoons for holding water games, both SKWIM and Water Polo with floating goals and simple lane line dividers for the game areas.
All three will have the BGC (Bloomfield-Garfield.org) as the financial 501(c)(3) for the grant period.

My cousin, Rock Rauterkus, has a business, and recently he helped me with a few things around our old, South Side home and office. Give him a call. He left his card:

You need to listen to Catherine’s story delivered in Pittsburgh at the South Side Rex Theater a while ago. It played on the podcast and the national radio show.
Future stories from her are expected. Some have already been recorded at other local events. In 2015 she was the “Grand Champion” at the annual event in Pittsburgh were all the prior story winners get to tell a story. This year’s Grand Slam is in a few months and she’ll be there again.
