KD/PG Sunday Edition

CBS2-Pittsburgh-11:30 a.m.

This Sunday morning, on KDKA-TV’s “KD/PG Sunday Edition” – with KDKA-TV News Anchor Stacy Smith and David Shribman, Executive Editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

On this week’s program:

Both Allegheny and Fayette counties are recovering from devastating flooding – one week ago – this Sunday.

Washington Boulevard – where a woman and her three children tragically died in flooding, several years ago – saw massive, flash flooding – again – last Sunday. Police had to rescue families from their cars – suddenly submerged, in flood waters.

While government leaders – on the state and local level – argue about whose responsibility it is – to solve the problem – Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto says the city will now do what is necessary – to protect lives. However, the financial cost – will run into millions of dollars.

Our guests include former Pittsburgh Mayor Tom Murphy – whose efforts to transform another environmental challenge – a slag dump – near Nine Mile Run – resulted in the development of one of Pittsburgh’s most beautiful, upscale and environmentally friendly neighborhoods – Summerset at Frick Park.

Murphy – now, a Senior Resident Fellow for Urban Development at the Urban Land Trust Institute, in Washington, D.C. —  and John W. Stephen III —  attorney, engineer, and environmental consultant to the “Living Waters of Larimer” non-profit organization – talk about possible solutions to the chronic, Washington Boulevard-Negley Run flooding problems – and how to pay for the project.

Then, we’ll examine the overwhelming impact of flash flooding – last Sunday night – in Connellsville and Bullskin Township, Fayette County – and what’s being done, to help those, whose lives were changed, forever, by this tragedy. Many families  — with limited resources – lost everything they owned, and had no flood insurance.

Our guests include Connellsville’s Democratic Mayor Greg Lincoln and Republican State Representative Ryan Warner – working – together – to assist as many people, as they can.

Please join Stacy Smith and David Shribman, for this timely discussion – THIS Sunday morning at  11:30 a.m., on KDKA-TV’s “KD/PG Sunday Edition”.

(Please note, that NEXT Sunday – because of the return of NFL Football programming on CBS and KDKA-TV – this program will be moving to Sunday mornings at 8:30 a.m. – through the NFL football season.)

On this week’s broadcast:

Point Park University continues to transform Downtown Pittsburgh – with its own efforts to establish a “city within a city”. Its campus now includes recreational space, new housing opportunities, and construction of a new Pittsburgh Playhouse – Downtown – and a media center.

We’ll talk with Paul Hennigan, Ed.D. – Point Park University’s President – about these achievements – and what the future holds, for this growing educational institution.

Then, the PPG Foundation and its employee volunteers are helping to bring a splash of color, to charter schools, in sometimes economically-challenged areas. PPG Foundation Executive Director Sue Sloan and Lois Mufuka Martin – Chief Volunteer Engagement Officer for the United Way of Southwestern Pennsylvania – join Jon Delano, to talk about their efforts to create “Colorful Communities” – including Pitcairn, Pennsylvania’s Propel Charter School.

Finally, Wesley Spectrum – a local, non-profit organization that provides autism and behavioral health assistance to children and youth, in Southwestern Pennsylvania – is the recipient of some “young blood” – on its Board of Directors. We’ll introduce you to Abby Geisel – a Fedex employee – who is part of Wesley’s “Junior Board” – and Wesley’s Chief Program Officer Pam Weaver – and learn about an event – this coming week – that is a result of their efforts: a “Night for Autism” – Wednesday, September 7th – at Wigle Whiskey Barrelhouse and Whiskey Garden, on Pittsburgh’s North Side.
