They join Delta’s seasonal non-stop flight through Paris. To mark the occasion, Our Region’s Business traveled to Europe to explore the Pittsburgh/Germany business connection and the new air service that’s making it a bit easier. We’ll meet the airline executives who chose to serve Pittsburgh and visit the home offices of the German companies – Covestro and LANXESS – who’ve been investing in the Pittsburgh region for decades.

Capitol Hill remains in political gridlock, this summer – with little progress on key issues, such as healthcare reform. Members of Congress are also trying to recover from the shocking shooting spree in Virginia, on June 14th – at a Republican practice for a Congressional baseball charity game. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise – from Louisiana – was critically wounded, three others, including another Congressman, were shot, and several other people were injured.
We’ll talk with Congressman Mike Doyle (D) from Pennsylvania’s 14th Congressional District (City of Pittsburgh, and portions of Allegheny and Westmoreland Counties), about what happens, now, to try to break the political stalemate.
Please join Stacy Smith and Jerry Micco, for this timely discussion – Sunday morning@11:30AM., on the “KD/PG Sunday Edition”, right after CBS’ “Face the Nation”, on KDKA-TV.
