    Exploring Pittsburgh neighborhoods

    in Travel

    Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is much more than a gray, smokey steel town.  It is a vibrant and colorful city filled with rich history, culture and culinary goodies.   The three rivers that meet at a point creates a flowing calming energy and provided the inspiration for Dutch artist Florentjn Hofman to select the city as her North American debut of his giant rubber duck.  Today, we will give you a glimpse into this remarkable city as we explore Pittsburgh's rich history through attractions like the Senator John Heinz History Center, we'll walk through the streets of The Hill District and we'll relive Pittsburgh's industrial past as we tour the Carrie Blast Furnaces.

    in Education

    The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview a favorite Pittsburgh Steeler,  Ernie Mills. 


    Ernie Mills comes to the Rattler squad as the receivers’ coach.  Mills was a standout receiver for the Florida Gators before being drafted in 1991 to the Pittsburgh Steelers.  He played in Pittsburgh with Holmes until 1996. In 1997 he played one season with the Carolina Panthers, before playing with the Dallas Cowboys in 1998 and 1999.  


    Ernie Mills led the Gators in receiving touchdowns with 10 in 1990.  That season he also garnered 770 yards receiving.  He was a first-team All-SEC selection with the 9-2 Gators in 1990, playing under both Galen Hall and Steve Spurrier in his time at the University of Florida.


    Ernie helped the Steelers get a birth in Super Bowl XXX with 39 catches for 679 yards while scoring eight touchdowns on the season.  Mills spent nine years in the NFL.  He finished his career with 196 receptions, 20 touchdowns and 2,934 yards.  Mills is still  regarded as one of the toughest receivers to ever play professional football.  His versatility as a blocker was often compared to the resolve of the area’s reputation for blue collar steel workers. Also a return man in the NFL, Mills gained  and amazing 1,818 yards on 80 kickoff returns.
