Clairton Happenings

(To read more about Clairton, see “Lables” and scroll down.)

Welcome to Clairton, City of Prayer: The Clairton Silver Anniversary book published in 1947 lists, in no particular order, the following houses of worship in a city of some 10,000 souls: Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church, St. Paulinus Roman Catholic Church, First Presbyterian Church, First Methodist Church, United Free Gospel Mission, First African Methodist Episcopal Church, Wilson Presbyterian Church, Clairton Christian Church, St. Joseph's Roman Catholic Church, Morning Star Baptist Church, Pine Run Methodist Church, The First Slavish Roman Catholic Greek Rite Church, St. Clare's Roman Catholic Church, Episcopal Church of the Transfiguration, Christian Missionary Alliance, Mount Olive First Baptist Church, Church of God in Christ, Greek Church, Serbian Orthodox Church, and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Many continue as houses of worship today including Mount Olive First Baptist Church which recently celebrated its Centennial Anniversary. The church began in the early 20th century as a prayer band that moved from house to house. In 1910 Rev. J. Dowling became the first pastor of the church, then located in the home of Mary Williams on Railroad Street. For the next 10 years the church made several moves including the Liberty Theater and the attic of Rev. Columbus McElroy, until the congregation built a permanent home in 1921. Rev. William C. Callaway has led the church since 1962. We wish the church and its congregants the best for at least another century.

Clairton and drugs: You’ve heard the stereotype. Clairton has fallen into disrepair (true); many longtime residents have died or moved on (true, though many have stayed and continue to live and contribute) and those who remain cause problems and use drugs. According to a recent article in the local paper, Clairton might be getting a bad rap.

The Tribune Review did a story that focused and gleaned information from the Allegheny County Medical Examiner regarding drug deaths from 2006-2008. During that period 650 people died from drug overdoses and another 70 from drug assisted suicides; a number that exceeded deaths from murders and car accidents combined. The killer drugs were most likely to have come not from illegal street sales but from medicine cabinets.

The Tribune-Review analysis shows: 2 of 3 deaths involved at least one prescription drug; 4 of 5 victims were white; 7 of 10 were men and 2 of 3 victims lived in the suburbs.

Drug overdose deaths are not unique to poor, urban inner city residents. According to Dr. Neil Capretto, medical director of Gateway Rehabilitation Center, which has 20 locations in Western Pennsylvania and Ohio, “Twenty-five years ago, it was rare for a National Honor Society student from an upper-middle-class family or a 45-year-old accountant with an MBA to fatally overdose. Now, it is commonplace."

Make no mistake, drugs are abused in Clairton but more common is the case of James Trasp, 49, a father of two, seemed unlikely to die of a drug overdose. He was white, middle-aged, an iron worker who lived in Jefferson Hills. Nearly 7 million Americans abuse prescription drugs -- "more than the number who are abusing cocaine, heroin, hallucinogens, ecstasy and inhalants combined," according to the federal Drug Enforcement Administration. In Bethel Park, for example, heroin was officially listed as a cause of death in about half of the South Hills municipality's 11 fatal overdoses from 2006 through 2008. We are killing ourselves and too often it is done with drugs that are prescribed.

March for the Next Generation: John Hodish is the Public Affairs Director of the Clairton Community Outreach Program. He is also a Clairton native son – born and raised. He has spent much of his adult life trying to educate people to the inequalities that exist in Clairton. Some days he is more successful than others. The other days are the ones that he feels like he is talking to a brick wall. It was one of the latter days that he decided to do something rash… take a walk. Not so rash, you say? Well this is a 270 mile walk that will go from Clairton to Washington, D.C. By doing the walk Hodish hopes to get attention and thus donations to expand the efforts of the CCOP. The program offers drug and alcohol education to residents of all ages through clubs, activities, and counseling groups. The program relies on donations and volunteers for its survival. The walkers plan to make it to D.C. by August 13 and with the help of PA politicians, plan to send the president a message – literally – in the form of a package that will include information about CCOP, the cite, and letters from children. See the web site at John hodish, Clairton boy.

Working to keep Clairton healthy: Kathy Tachoir is the 29th president of the Clairton Chamber of Commerce. Clairton and commerce are in her blood. She and her husband Roger own Tachoir’s Body Shop in Clairton, a successful business for decades. But her DNA runs deeper. She is the daughter of a family that owned Grisnik’s Bakery for generations. The photo above was taken in 1918. Sitting on the hood of truck towards front is Frank Grisnik, Jr.; Mike Kalcevich beside him, Mr. Kalcevic in front of Frank, Jr. Standing at foot of running board is Frank Grisnik, Sr., beside him Mike Verbanic, and at the rear of truck is John Snyder.

As president of the Chamber of Commerce she represents the chamber on the board of the Clairton PartnerSHIP, the State Health Improvement Program which is dedicated to better health in Clairton. The chamber also is part of the Unity group in Clairton, which includes churches, schools, the city and the local economic development corporation. Kathy Tachoir, Clairton gal and business leader.

Dr. Kenny Guinn

The Amazing Dr. Kenny Guinn

In the midst of the Great Depression in rural Garland Arkansas, a poor, illiterate family had a son they named Kenny. Not Kenneth or Ken, just Kenny. As times grew more difficult for the family they heard that crops needed to be picked in the San Joaquin Valley of California so they packed up, left Arkansas behind, and headed for the Land of Milk and Honey. They settled in the small farming community of Exeter where 10-year old Kenny became fast friends with another poor kid, Bob List from nearby Visalia, and a pretty little third-grader named Dema Lee Lane. The three dirt poor kids became lifelong friends.

Bob List was an excellent student. He graduated from high school and attended Utah State University then law school at the University of California. He made his home in Nevada, practiced law and went into politics. In 1979 Robert List was elected Governor of the State of Nevada. By this time his buddy Kenny and friend Dema had also married and moved to Nevada.

Kenny’s father could not read so 10-year old Kenny would bring the newspaper home each day and in a family ritual, read it to his Dad. As he grew Kenny became movie-star handsome, an excellent student, and a star multi-sport athlete in high school. Bob List tells that story that one afternoon a school car pulled up to the Guinn home, which was little more than a hovel. The Superintendent had Kenny in the car and brought him to the front door and said, “Mr. Guinn, I had to bring Kenny home to tell you that he was named valedictorian of the school.”

Kenny’s father became red-faced and said, “Don’t worry Sir. If he did that thing at school I’ll take care of him at home and tomorrow he will apologize to the whole school and never do that again.”

Kenny was recruited by many colleges and initially attended USC to play football, but once he learned they would not let him play basketball as well, he returned to nearby Fresno State to become a star in both sports. Kenny completed his degree, married his childhood sweetheart Dema, and began teaching high school. In 1964 and Dema moved to Las Vegas where Kenny became a school administrator. Five years later he completed his Doctorate and became Superintendent of Schools in the fast-growing Clark County (Las Vegas) School District. During his nine-year tenure as Superintendent Dr. Kenny Guinn implemented outstanding programs, and kept the District fiscally responsible.

In his first State of the State address Governor Guinn spoke about success when he said, “I believe we must measure success by how we are able to care for the most fragile of our citizens – our children, the elderly, and those who are disabled. We cannot afford to do everything but there are some things we cannot afford not to do.” And he walked the walk by creating such programs including the Senior Rx program to assist seniors with medical costs, the Nevada Mammovan program that provided mammograms to the uninsured, and the Nevada Check-up program for children. During his terms as governor the number of children served by the Check Up program increased from fewer than 2,000 to more than 30,000. Time Magazine recognized Gov. Guinn as one of the five best governors in America.

Two traits became apparent during Dr. Guinn’s tenure as superintendent; he outworked everybody on his staff, and he was a man of the people. He often made surprise visits to schools and was equally comfortable talking with the custodians, cafeteria workers, children, teachers, or principals.

In 1978 he left the school district to become vice-president of a local bank then Chairman of the Board of another bank. From there he accepted the position of Chairman and CEO of Southwest Gas Corporation. In 1994 when UNLV was rocked by a scandal that forced the university president out, Kenny accepted the position of interim president with the proviso that his salary goes to student scholarships and he would work for $ 1.00 per year. He got the university back on an even keel and by this time was one of the most popular leaders in the state of Nevada.

Many of his friends as well as other movers and shakers in Nevada encouraged him to enter politics but he resisted – until 1998 when, with no previous political experience, he ran for Governor of Nevada against a popular ex-Las Vegas mayor. He won the race and served two terms as Governor. Although he ran on the Republican ticket, he was often characterized as being, “neither Republican nor Democrat nor Independent, but an advocate of the people of Nevada.”

During his stint as governor the state began its sideways skid economically, reflecting the national economic crisis. He spent countless hours, again outworking everybody else, trying to balance the state budget. When cuts had to be made his comment was always, “Save the funding for the children.”

When the tobacco lawsuit was settled Governor Guinn used Nevada’s share of the money to establish “Millennium Scholarships,” that would pay college tuition and other assistance for students who showed academic promise.

What are the odds that a small, rural farming community like Exeter, CA would produce two governors and a first lady? I’m sure they are incalculable. But it did.

Dema and Kenny Guinn moved into their home near downtown Las Vegas some 32 years ago. It was there they reared two sons and was the home Kenny used as a home base as he became the most popular man in the state of Nevada. When not working on one of his many project or for the betterment of Nevada citizens, Kenny loved to tinker around the house. So it was no surprise to Dema last week when he told her he was going to blow away the pine needles from the roof gutter. At age 73 he was healthy, fit, and still outworked most people half his age. She heard the ladder scrape and rushed outside to find her husband of 54 years lying on the ground next to the ladder. The ambulance rushed him to nearby University Medical where he was pronounced dead. Cause of death has yet to be determined.

Kenny Guinn had a huge resume; student, athlete, teacher, superintendent, executive, governor, and enough to fill a volume. But his life was devoted to his family and the people of Nevada. Dr. Kenny C. Guinn was my friend and a hero.

Clairton News

Lots of Clairton news today

Hot off the presses: The explosion last week at the Clairton works sent ripples of fear through the Mon Valley. Reports of the number injured ranges from 15-20 depending on the report. With memories of Nicholas Revetta’s death last September still fresh in the minds of residents, questions of the mill’s relevance are again being raised. The blast occurred at an oven in the Coke Works about 9:30 last Wednesday. At least two and possibly three of the injured were critical. Most of the injuries were burns. By Friday nine were still hospitalized.

Although most of the U. S. Steel mills in the valley have been shuttered for decades, Clairton Works is one of the few remaining. It employs about 1,500 and manufactures nearly five million tons of coke per year. The plant is an anachronism left over from Clairton’s glory days. Besides coke the plant also produces putrid air that exposes Clairton and Glassport resident to toxic air that increases their risk of cancer by 20 times the national average. That makes Clairton and Glassport the third and fourth highest risk air pollution in the nation. U.S. Steel had announced a $1 billion renovation of the plant last year but later cancelled those plans. Ironically, Clairton’s new, young Mayor, Richard Lattanzi, is the safety coordinator for nearby Irvin Works.

Magic Mike Super: Clairton native Mike Super can make plenty of things disappear. Ok, maybe not the bad air that surrounds the community, but the young magician recently brought his act to the Palace Theater in nearby Greensburg. In his act, Super mixes humor with illusions, makes audience members levitate, and even makes a vehicle disappear. The 1987 CHS grad also made The Daily News disappear... well, more accurately, he was one of many newsboys who tossed the paper six days a week. His high school magic, which he began performing at age six, also included being a member of the CHS Marching Band. He is in the midst of preparing a TV series. Mike Super, magician and Clairton boy.

Ghosts from Clairton past: The Pastore family name is well known in Clairton. Dan, Sr. was a local store owner and newspaper distributor, other family members were football heroes and achievers who added to the Clairton story. Sadly for at least one Pastore, life ended too soon. Eddie Pastore was killed 21 years ago. At the time Clairton was struggling fiscally and was in such turmoil that it had no police department. No local detectives, no hometown force that knew the community, and the case languished. A childhood friend has offered a $1,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of the murderer of Eddie Pastore.

Mike Boss grew up with Eddie and the fact that the investigation has not moved forward has stuck in his craw for more than two decades. So he is trying to get the case reopened. In addition to the reward efforts include a Facebook page, “Eddie Pastore Memorial” and a show on We hope the efforts of Mike Boss and his collaborators will provide new information for this cold case.
Clairton man hiking Appalachian Trail: On November 24, 2003 Clairton resident Rodger Henry Biddle had a very bad day. That day he was arrested for aggravated assault, discharge of a firearm into an occupied structure, 23 counts of terroristic threats, and 26 counts of recklessly endangering another person. He was shot six times by a SWAT Team with bean bags and pleaded guilty to all counts. But he fled to South Carolina and made the number one spot on the Allegheny County Most Wanted list. The second worst day of his life was a couple of weeks ago when authorities in South Carolina arrested him on the outstanding warrant and shipped him back to PA. Not quite the reason Clairtonians want to shout, “We’re Number 1!”

Hot August Nights in June: The area of Third Street and Baker Avenue became the hub of activity a couple of weeks ago. At 2:00 a.m. police from 12 different communities answered the “Officer needs assistance” call and went to that location. There they discovered what was described as a riot. Although there were reports of shots fired the only apparent injury was to a woman who broke her arm during the brawl.

Hometown loyalty: Ralph Imbrogno was recently furloughed from his job as Clairton’s City Manager after more than a decade of service in that position. The reasons were purely fiscal. The City has to cut costs and Ralph understands that. His history with the City of Clairton extends back to the early 1970s. The positions of City Manager and Finance Director were combined and a part time employee was hired to do that job. Although his tenure as a paid employee for Clairton has ended Mr. I. has vowed to assist the city with his expertise in any way he can. Specifically he said, "It's my home. Anything I can do to help out, I will do it." THAT is the attitude that will bring Clairton back to prosperity.

A special thank you for all who sent me information that appeared on today’s blog.

More Clairton History

Clairton Crucible; Clairton Cobras

The evolution: Although there was a lazy settlement in the nineteenth century where Clairton now stands the city did not start to blossom until the turn of the twentieth century. Indeed, it was in the early 1900s that Clairton became incorporated as a city. What many of us remember as the weekly newspaper The Clairton Progress, was not so named until later. It would be the third and final name of the local newspaper and would wither and die about the same time the steel industry did the same.

Crucible Steel: The Crucible Steel Corporation was formed in 1900 and was one of the earliest, if not the earliest steel mills in the area. Crucible owned Clairton Steel Company. The company was civic minded enough to begin a newspaper in about 1903 and name it after the corporation and the community it served; hence, the Clairton Crucible. A cursory review of the Clairton Crucible did not uncover any items detrimental to the steel company. In October 1903 United States Steel made an offer to purchase Crucible but backed out at the last minute. Clairton Steel tried to go it alone but had difficulty raising money to continue operations and by January 1904 was forced into receivership.

From whence it came: Crucible Steel organized St. Clair Steel and St. Clair furnace Company then merged them to become Clairton Steel Company. U.S, Steel played a game of Chicken and the result was they took over Clairton Steel Company in 1904. It is unclear when the Clairton Crucible stopped publication but the next title was the Greater Clairton Progress that started in 1918. It altered its name in 1925 and became the Clairton Progress until publication ceased in 1067 then published as The Progress until the mid 1970s.

A proud sports tradition: The Clairton Cobras became the Clairton Bears in 1941. I am unable to discover the reason behind the name change and invite any reader to offer one. The 1931 Clairton Cobras finished the year as WPIAL champs and boasted a record that included only one loss in six seasons – a 7-0 loss to Duquesne in 1930. It was not uncommon for crowds that neared 10,000 to watch the CHS teams. The game against McKeesport set a record attendance of 15,000 in 1931.

Football heroes: Over the years Clairton has been the starting point for many outstanding football players. All Americans Andy Berchock (played college at University of North Carolina) and Jim Kelly (was also All American at Notre Dame) were but two from the past but there was also Clairton Mayor Ken Stilley who starred at CHS then Notre Dame. The quality continues. Superstars Kevin Witherspoon and Eddie Ball helped take the Bears to their first state championship last year and quarterback/linebacker Desimon Green was recently named the Daily News Male Athlete of the Year. Desi has another year to help the Bears as he won the honor as a junior. We’ll be keeping tabs in him and will keep you informed.

The Great Depression in Clairton: Both my parents came of age in Clairton during the Great Depression. My mother often told me how during the 13 years her father was mostly out of work the family of four girls and two boys survived by keeping chickens, a cow, and raising their own food in the huge garden next to the house. She and her brother Mike also worked after Grisnik’s Bakery closed, cleaning up the place, the dough and flower on the floor and machines needed to be cleaned for the following day’s baking. In lieu of pay they would receive flower that my grandmother used for baking.

She also told me of how my grandfather repaired the boy’s shoes with slices of discarded tires and the girls often wore dresses made from flour sacks. The story came back to me in a recent email I received about flour sack dresses. Please enjoy and appreciate the fact that today’s economic crisis does not compare with the Great Depression.

The Flour Sack
By Colleen B. Hubert

In that long ago time when things were saved,
When roads were graveled and barrels were staved,
When worn-out clothing was used as rags,
And there were no plastic wrap or bags,
And the well and the pump were way out back,
A versatile item, was the flour sack.

Pillsbury's Best, Mother's and Gold Medal, too
Stamped their names proudly in purple and blue
The string sewn on top was pulled and kept;
The flour emptied and spills were swept.
The bag was folded and stored in a sack
That durable, practical flour sack.

The sack could be filled with feather and down,
For a pillow, or t'would make a sleeping gown.
It could carry a book and be a school bag,
Or become a mail sack slung over a nag.
It made a very convenient pack,
That adaptable, cotton flour sack.

Bleached and sewn, it was dutifully worn
As bibs, diapers, or kerchief adorned
It was made into skirts, blouses and slips
And mom braided rugs from one hundred strips
She made ruffled curtains for the house or shack,
From that humble but treasured flour sack!

As a strainer for milk or apple juice,
To wave men in, it was a very good use,
As a sling for a sprained wrist or a break,
To help mother roll up a jelly cake,
As a window shade or to stuff a crack,
We used a sturdy, common flour sack!

As dish towels, embroidered or not,
They covered up dough, helped pass pans so hot,
Tied up dishes for neighbors in need,
And for men out in the field to seed.
They dried dishes from pan, not rack
That absorbent, handy flour sack!

We polished and cleaned stove and table,
Scoured and scrubbed from cellar to gable,
We dusted the bureau and oak bed post,
Made costumes for October (a scary ghost)
And a parachute for a cat named Jack.
From that lowly, useful old flour sack!

So now my friends, when they ask you
As curious youngsters often do,
"Before plastic wrap, Elmer's Glue
And paper towels, what did you do?"
Tell them loudly and with pride don't lack,
"Grandmother had that wonderful flour sack!"

Clairton Info and Oldies Quiz

Don’t drink a fifth on the Fourth

Hot off the presses from the Clairton Crucible: During last Monday’s Council meeting, the clerk was absent so S. C. Wilson served in that capacity. It might seem like a mundane meeting but business must be conducted. A loan of $8,000 was secured from the Union Trust bank, a bill to Clairton Hardware was ordered paid as well as two outstanding bills to the Monongahela Water Company. Eight streetlights were authorized at Waddell and Sixth Street, Fifth and Park, Fifth and St. Clair, Fourth and Ridge Street, Third and Mitchell, Third and Large, and other locations. The fire Department will be relocated to the Payne Building. Various other agenda items were addressed. The Council meeting was reported in the January 1, 1904 Crucible. Thank you Jim Hartman, President of the Mifflin Historical Society.

One more thing: One other item in the January 1, 1904 Crucible, “Big reduction in men’s fine underwear at Thomas and Company, Blair.” Aren’t you sad you missed it? The Crucible was the forerunner of the Clairton Progress.

Thank you Dr. Ron “Painless” Kunz: We recently wrote of the CHS Class of 1960 Clairton High School Reunion. Dr. Kunz took the time and effort to create a 2-CD set of songs of the era from the 50s onward. Since we are midway through summer school it is appropriate to provide a mid-term exam based on the songs that Ron provided.
