Allegheny City Historic Gallery, which is devoted to North Side history and opened in 2015, is moving into a new space. The gallery has been a "labor of love," according to co-founder Kim Gandy. While the gallery's physical location is changing, one thing isn't: Admission will still be free. “The important thing is, when someone wants to get the inkling to come in or to reminisce, we’re available to them at no cost," Gandy said. "We don’t want to turn anyone away.” Find out what they need from you to help make it happen.

The Steelers' path to winning in the playoffs and going to the Super Bowl is pretty simple: Play simple. Run the ball. Stop the other team from running the ball. Win. While Miami ran all over the Steelers in Week 6, Pittsburgh is better than they were the last time they faced the Dolphins, on both offense and defense. Should the Steelers beat Miami this Sunday, then all the team needs to do is beat Kansas City the following Sunday, then beat New England, most likely, the Sunday after that. See? Simple.
