How long have you been at North Allegheny?  I taught at Burrell High School for one year (with Mr. Truesdell and Mr. Tozier---fun fact!). We all became NA Tigers eventually. I’ve taught at NASH for 23 years. I went to Peebles, Carson, NAI and NASH when I was growing up in McCandless, so technicall...

Joe Borsch would appear to be your everyday senior, attending classes, lugging around a bookbag, and making plans for life after high school.  But then you notice that he wears an NA Contractor ID badge and carries keys to certain doors in the building.  The Uproar demanded answers!   What exactly is your ...

Everybody knows the when-and-where when it comes to local movie theaters, but something that has slightly been forgotten are Pittsburgh’s drive-in destinations. Drive-ins have been around as early as 1910 -- shortly after movie theaters started popping up around 1908 -- and the industry skyrockete...

11/8/2018: It’s opening night for our school’s fall play: The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. All the actors and musicians are excited but a little bit tense. In my spot on the loft above the stage, I can see everything and everyone. I begin to recognize my peers and some of my teachers,...

  Big Dog Coffee: Maria: For being pretty hard to find, The Big Dog Coffee Shop was a diamond in the rough. The whole shop was bursting with color and a friendly atmosphere -- it was dog friendly and had free WiFi- but for me, that was where the goodness stopped. The simple vanilla latte was fine at best. It was ...

In America, no Thanksgiving is the same. Side dishes and other customs vary from region to region--even from house to house. We asked three Uproar members to give us a thorough account of their Thanksgiving traditions, from culinary customs to travel plans. Below are their special takes on Thanksgiving.   Amanda:  My typical T...

This Friday, on November 23, millions of Americans will rush out of their houses at 4 a.m. and fight through crowds and miserable traffic to celebrate the unofficial beginning of the Christmas season, Black Friday. The nature of this day may seem like such a 21st century thing, but the holiday has actu...

This past week, I ate my way through the North Hills in the attempt to find the best pizza in the North Allegheny School District. From Franklin Park to McCandless to the heart of Wexford, I eagerly "oohed and ahhed" with each new slice I tried. I came up with criteria to grade each pizza and gave overall rat...

What’s next for you? Do you have any albums coming up? I do, it's ready. I just have to finish recording it, but there is a full album written— just not recorded yet. It is on its way! It’s going to be called Crazy Ideas, so look out for updates on my social media (facebook.com/melinabowsermu...

Contigo: $9.99/24 oz I've personally owned this water bottle in the past, and I can say for a fact that it did not live up to my expectations. Although it is composed of durable plastic and contains a pretty decent volume of water for this price point, the handle that is supposed to make this water...
