Sara Innamorato co-founded She Runs Southwestern Pa. last year to help women run for office. Now, she's decided to try it herself. Last week, Innamorato announced that she's running for Democratic state Rep. Dom Costa's seat in the May 2018 primary, his first challenger in about a decade. Innamorato, of Lawrenceville, said Costa's voting record doesn't align with her views as a Democrat; she plans to “push progressive policies" in Harrisburg.
State Rep. Adam Ravenstahl is also getting a primary challenger, this one from Lawrenceville, too. He's a fun-loving, Bernie-supporting musician and DJ who believes in a woman’s right to chose, single-payer healthcare and a $15 minimum wage. He describes himself as a “political outsider” and a “community insider.” You may know him as Zombo.
And yet, here we are talking about the two Penguins goalies! After two straight losses to Nashville, the Penguins have a litany of changes they could make to their lineup in preparation for Game 5 back in Pittsburgh. The starting goaltender, however, should not be one of them. Rich Miller — reluctantly — explains why.
Predators games are filled with wanna-be country music stars, actual country music stars and players’ wives who have won more than a dozen Grammy awards. But their first two attempts at Stanley Cup Final National Anthems were, to be kind, poor. Our sports editor Dan Levy suggests here that Pittsburgh could give Nashville a run for its concert tickets if only the Pens would pull Jeff Jimerson and give the mic to anyone on this list ahead of Game 5.
