Update: At the general election in November 2017, the voters in the city of Pittsburgh elected to change the city’s charter to allow city workers the opportunity to take on part-time work as athletic coaches for Pittsburgh Public School. More than 31,000 YES votes, 73%, were in favor. By the way, the unopposed re-election of Mayor Bill Peduto, D, generated 95% support and 39,000 votes.
Listen to this radio interview
Radio host, Dimitri, talks with Coach Mark Rauterkus about more people being eligible to be hired as part-time coaches at Pittsburgh Public Schools.
There was a tie in the points served by the judges in the audience, but the winner was named. Catherine won for the third time in Pittsburgh.

To be honest, the meetings that were shared in the story that happened in City Hall and in Church after mass were with Pittsburgh’s former Bishop, Bishop Wuerl. This photo, taken a few years later at a special event for DePaul School show Bishop Z and Catherine. Both served as board members for the school.

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!
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.
Surf around this directory to see the text, budgets and art for the proposals: http://swim.cloh.org/betaburgh/

Yes. We seem to be able to get the technology for Summer Dreamers as a result of the efforts with the Digital Badges and the Sprout Fund.
I need to clear up two questions, it seems. That’s okay as I asked to meet with them a couple of weeks ago anyway.
