Thousands of households in Pittsburgh and nearby areas have been under a flush and boil advisory since Monday night — and they’ll remain that way for the time being. PWSA’s Robert Weimar said Tuesday afternoon that the advisory will remain in place until the Department of Environmental Regulation gives the OK, which could come as early as Thursday: “It’s a high probability that we should be able to lift it sometime Thursday. At the very latest, we hope it will be Friday.” North Side, Millvale and Reserve Township residents who can't boil their water may fill containers at 10 sites.

More than 81 years after joining the Pittsburgh Pirates as an usher, 99-year-old Phil Coyne experienced a first in his storied career on Tuesday. In a proclamation ceremony inside the City-County Building, council members declared Aug. 29, 2017, "Phil Coyne Day" in Pittsburgh. The move was in recognition of Coyne's decades of service to the Pirates organization, the sport of baseball and the City of Pittsburgh itself. Now, officials and fans say they hope to see Coyne return for his 82nd season. As always, the soon-to-be centenarian says he hopes to be there, too.
