The baby is named after family members who came to America on the Mayflower, according to Dad.
Alden William Johnson was the first baby born in 2013 at St. Clair Hospital. Alden arrived at 8:26 a.m.—four days after his due date—and weighed a whopping 11 pounds, 3 ounces. "It's exciting, 1-1-13, it's definitely memorable. It's totally not what we were expecting," said Alden's father, John Johnson. "The nurses were excited, too. Especially with him being such a big baby." John said he and mom, Jessica Johnson, might have been a bit more nervous than the average first-time parents. They are both nurses. "Well we know more than most people, so we get nervous. But everything went well. No problems," John said. John and Jessica have been married for five years and were neighbors as they grew up in Washington County. The name Alden William…

A 12-year-old girl in Mt. Lebanon said a man asked her to get into his truck.
Mt. Lebanon police are investigating an attempted child luring in a neighborhood near St. Clair Hospital. The 12-year-old Jefferson Middle School sixth grader told Upper St. Clair Patch she was near the intersection of Pinewood and Maplewood drives when she heard a vehicle squeal behind her.

When Jami Estabrook’s beloved dog named Molly escaped from her Mt. Lebanon home last August, she did everything in her power to find her. Estabrook scoured the area in her car, put up 400 “Lost Dog” fliers from Bridgeville to Bethel Park and even knocked on doors to see if her collie-shepherd mix with long black hair was wandering around their neighborhoods. Despite numerous close calls and apparent sightings between Mt. Lebanon’s Rec Center and St. Clair Hospital, she could never catch up with the elusive Molly. Even one of her traps only turned up an angry raccoon. But after six months of searching, she never gave up hope that her dog would appear alive. Then, the day after posting one last bit of information on her Facebook page, she …
