    Three years after it resumed operation of the last vestige of the old National Tube Works, U.S. Steel is pulling the plug on pipemaking in McKeesport. McKeesport Mayor Michael Cherepko said he is “extremely disappointed” with U.S. Steel Corp.'s announcement on Monday that it will idle indefinitely its McKeesport Tubular Operations effective in early August. “I think it is devastating for the entire Mon Valley region,” the mayor said shortly after receiving word about the shutdown of plants in McKeesport and Bellville, Texas, two of 10 plants in the Pittsburgh-based steelmaker's Tubular Products division. The announcement came 60 days before...

    The surviving members of this family -- Lueana Coward and her three daughters -- now live with grief that's difficult to fathom. Lueana... was pregnant at 13 and had a second child three years later. She moved out on her own at 16... Introduced to cocaine in the late 1970s, she continued to use the following decade. So in 1992, shortly after the birth of her youngest son, Don, she began using crack cocaine. Lueana's habit grew to $300 a day. She sold her nicest clothes -- dresses of leather and suede -- and jewelry. She sold her blinds and...

    McKeesport man hopes to build a Hollywood on the Mon Thursday, May 10, 2007 By Margaret Smykla Even with a cigar clenched in his teeth and lots of padded girth, no one would confuse McKeesport's John Yost with film mogul Louis B. Mayer. Then again, no one would confuse Glassport with Hollywood. But a Tinseltown on the Mon could be on its way if Mr. Yost can work out a deal for property in Glassport on which he wants to expand his fledgling film studio. < -- snip -- > Sandy Urbanski, former president of the Glassport Development Corp., is...
