Mt. Lebanon football coach Mike Melnyk "resigns"

It appears that Brian McFeeley and John Grogan thought that Mike Melnyk should rethink his future at Mt. Lebanon High School.

At the time of this post, there were three comments, all agreeing that the parents were to blame.

Looking for deer "management" on the municipal website? Good luck!

After searching for the link to Mt. Lebanon's deer "management" program, I finally did a search. Sure enough, it was hidden on December 5, 2018. To find it, go to  

  1. Home >
  2. Services
  3. >
  4. Administration
  5. >
  6. Official Documents>
  7. Deer Management Information>
  8. Historical Deer Management Information

Whew! That was easy. There is no information about Tony DeNicola's proposal for killing up to 75 deer for no more than $59,605. Such a bargain!!! Want to hear more about this deer killing sale, go to tomorrow evening's commission meeting where you will hear Craig Grella (the guy who is afraid of deer) read this action item on the agenda. We go through this exercise every year. Nothing is posted on the municipal website. No car crash reports. No proposals.  No documentation whatsoever.

Last year, we spent $1352.81 per deer killed in Mt. Lebanon. 57 deer were killed. If DeNicola kills 57 deer next year, it will only cost taxpayers $1045.70 per deer. Remember, Tony told us that it would only cost us about $200-$300 per deer, while sterilization would cost much, much more.

Baby, Just GO Outside UPDATED

Being totally out of touch and filled with hate, I bring you this updated version of a Christmas classic.

Update December 10, 2018 5:21 PM To show how I got with the program, here is a list of more politically incorrect Christmas songs that need to be banned.

1. I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus: subjecting minors to softcore porn

2. The Christmas Song: Open fire? Pollution. Folks dressed up like Eskimos? Cultural appropriation

3. Holly Jolly Christmas: Kiss her once for me? Unwanted advances

4. White Christmas: Racist

5. Santa Claus is Coming to Town: Sees you when you’re sleeping? Knows when you’re awake? Peeping Tom stalker

6. Most Wonderful Time of the Year: Everyone telling you be of good cheer? Forced to hide depression

7. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: Bullying

8. It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas: Forced gender-specific gifts: dolls for Janice and Jen and boots and pistols (GUNS!) for Barney and Ben

9. Santa Baby: Gold digger, blackmail

10. Frosty the Snowman: Sexist; not a snow woman

11. Do You Hear What I Hear: blatant disregard for the hearing impaired

12. Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas: Make the yuletide GAY? Wow, just wow

13. Jingle Bell Rock: Giddy up jingle horse, pick up your feet: animal abuse

14. Mistletoe and Holly: Overeating, folks stealing a kiss or two? How did this song ever see the light of day?

15. Winter Wonderland: Parson Brown demanding they get married…forced partnership

Oh my!!! Look at all the hate we have been singing about all these years!!!

One very determined troll

As of November 8, 2018, I changed the settings on Lebo Citizens to No More Comments. On Thursday, December 6, 2018 at 6:22 PM, I missed a call dialed from the Mt. Lebanon Library. I was out and didn't hear my cell ring. When I came home, there was a call on my caller ID, also from Mt. Lebanon Public Library, at 6:23 PM.

No messages were left on either phone. I didn't think anything of it, until I opened my email this morning.

Your post on Dec 4 perfectly illustrates how out of touch and filled with  
hate you are.

This is one, very determined troll. Obviously, I offended a Mt. Lebanon Public Library employee. Wow!

Gee, who could that be? Perhaps the Community Engagement Coordinator of Mt. Lebanon Public Library and potty-mouthed school board commenter, Beth "Shit Show" Evans.

Am I the only one offended by this?

This is in the Teen Section of Mt. Lebanon Public Library.

Congratulations to

Mike Riemer, school board president, and Sarah Olbrich, school board vice president! I think last year was one of the school board's best years in a very long time.

No drama this year. Remember the disgraceful comment session from residents last year? Glad it was peaceful this year.

Congrats to our school board! Did you ever think I would say that? 😉

What do you do when... UPDATED

you had a bad experience with a local business and it is virtually impossible to leave a bad review? I was taken off their mailing list, blocked on Facebook, and my reputation was smeared. Since I was blocked on Facebook, I couldn't leave a review.  I went on Yelp. I left a well thought out review (not a rant and even complimenting when credit was due) on Yelp, only to have them get it removed from Yelp. The Yelp legal department called it, "a conflict of interest," citing that I was a former employee. Sorry, Yelp, I was never an employee. 

Only rave reviews are left, some by relatives of employees.  Other positive reviews are given by sympathetic customers who listen to the sob stories.  Shouldn't the public have the right to read ALL reviews, both good and bad? We are talking about purchases that are worth thousands of dollars.

Going to the Better Business Bureau is not an option. They have been reported to the BBB through the years - not by me, but by others. 

My money is no good there. Oh yeah. They are always on the Mt. Lebanon tax lien list every year.  Even the IRS is after them. All public information and well documented. They may think that they won, but you can't keep treating your best customers like crap. It does catch up to you, sooner or later.

Update December 2, 2018 9:28 AM There is legislation which supports consumer rights and the integrity of critical feedback about products and services.

Yes, You Can Post That Negative Online Review, Says Congress

It's not as complicated as it looks.

Don't let this scare you.

I made it all the way to the end of the flow chart, but it did cost $7000 for the PA Supreme Court to tell me that they wouldn't hear the Petition for Allowance of Appeal. We don't have the Right To Know where lethal weapons are being discharged on Mt. Lebanon private properties.

Lamb didn't sign

U.S. Rep. Conor Lamb, D-18, Mount Lebanon, who won the new 17th Congressional District seat on Nov. 6, did not sign the letter, although he has expressed his opposition to having Pelosi serve as Speaker. A Lamb spokeswoman said Monday that nothing had changed, noting that Lamb has repeatedly stated after the election that he would not vote for Pelosi in caucus or in a House floor vote.

Uptown Parking Meters

Mt. Lebanon will not be enforcing the parking meters on Thanksgiving, Black Friday nor Small Business Saturday. The garages will be managed on a regular schedule.

The Municipality will also be rolling out the "Courtesy Ticket Program" beginning Monday, December 10th and that will carry on till Wednesday, January 2nd. Customers are extended a 'grace period' of one hour after a meter expires as a Holiday courtesy. A green courtesy ticket is issued on expired meters that inform the driver of the bonus. After the one hour a standard ticket would be issued (i.e. with a fee).

No more comments

You may have noticed a drop in comments in the past couple of months. I have not been accepting most of the ones submitted. The haters are having a field day here.

It is ending now.
