I have continued on with a
new "Soul Sis Speaks" blog at
See you there!
Donna Michele Baxter, soulfully known as the "SoulSis" is the creator and self-proclaimed WebMistress for TheSoulPitt.com -- Pittsburgh #1 African-American community web portal. Read her blog as she shares with you life as an entrepreneur in the city of Pittsburgh.
Today, the stories of that tragedy, told in-depth by the Johnstown Flood National Memorial and the Johnstown Flood Museum, still are the "hooks" that draw visitors to Johnstown, a town of 24,000 that's about 90 minutes southeast of Pittsburgh.
