We are committed to providing high-quality, personalized health care for women through all stages of life.
Premier Women’s Health is one of the largest independent obstetrics and gynecology groups in western
Pennsylvania. Our two offices are conveniently located in Moon Township and Sewickley, and our affiliation
with Heritage Valley Sewickley allows you to receive state-of-the-art hospital care close to home.
Our diagnostic imaging services have expanded to include men, women, and teens.
We now perform vascular, thyroid, and general abdominal ultrasound
in addition to mammography and bone density studies.

Above Staunton Heights in Moon Township the
magnificent eagle has been seen flying around.
Resident Joe Holmes took this shot during a
warm fall day, among other photos he saw of the
same bird on subsequent days.
With a wingspan of six feet, these birds of prey
generally fly around a 2,500 mile radius.
The eagle was seen several times more before it
disappeared from the landscape.
Who says eagles don’t land on the Moon, Moon
Township that is!

“Ignore the naysayers and conformists. Life is too short for regrets. Have confidence in your dreams. Follow your
passions, wherever they lead. Small joys still exist in our world. Discover the moments of magic and serenity in
secluded places. See the world for yourself without hesitation or fear. Discover a personal peace, and as Gandhi
once said, “Be the change you would like to see in the world.”
Traveling has been in uber-adventurer Brandon Wilson’s blood
since he was a young boy attending Moon Area School District.
He started traveling with his family as a child. After graduating
from Moon in 1971, he never looked back.
Since 1999, he has been making long-distance treks of 900
miles or more somewhere in the world every year.
Brandon and his wife Cheryl, a television producer originally
from Los Angeles, enjoy traveling together. She accompanied him
on their walk across Tibet in 1992.
Just recently, they completed a momentous trek of discovery. In
June, they set off on the recently formed Via Alpina for a nearly
1,500-mile (2,500-kilometer) trek the length of the Alps.
Their route took them across eight countries, as they left Trieste,
Italy to trek across Slovenia, Austria, Germany, Liechtenstein,
Switzerland, France and Monaco – eventually arriving at the
long-awaited Mediterranean Sea in September.
This Via Alpina route consisted of more than 100 stages and
lots of “ups and downs,” climbing 3,000 feet up and down a
mountain every day. So the Wilsons traveled light, carrying just
15-17 pounds (7-8 kilos). The latest ultra-light gear provided by
GoLite and Gossamer Gear saw them through the famous
unpredictability of the Alps: snow-bound passes, 40+ days of rain,
and high altitude winds. Climbing the Alps from hut-to-hut for
twenty miles a day provided a supreme physical challenge for
these trekkers, but what a unique (and ecological) way to
experience Alpine culture–one-step-at-a-time. It was total
immersion into local life, customs, history, and cuisine.
Brandon and Cheryl followed this unique trail for 3-1/2
months. At least, unlike their historic 1,000-kilometer trek across
Tibet, they didn’t have to dodge Chinese bullets–but they sure
missed Sadhu, their equine Sherpa.
As usual, Brandon chronicled this latest odyssey through daily
journal entries and photographs. Those notes and photos will
provide grist for his new adventure book scheduled for
publication from Pilgrim’s Tales publishing in late 2010. His
$OOHJKHQ\:HVW0DJD]LQH1RYHPEHU
chronicle will allow readers to vicariously share the daily challenges
and victories of their latest exploit. After reading it, readers may be
ready for an adventure of their own.
Like his other adventure books, this one is bound to provide an
intimate look at “deliberate travel.” As he puts it, “The Alps are
much more than gnomes and cheese. Plus, for folks seeking a little
peace and simplicity in these difficult times, I can think of no better
solution than to simplify, slow life down, disconnect from the
distractions of the outside world, and head off the beaten track.
The couple, among the first to complete the route, carried over 30
topographic maps supplied by Omni Resources. To better physically
prepare for this extreme daily challenge, they followed a regime of
aerobic and strength training at Upcountry Fitness on Maui.
Brandon is an award-winning author of three other true travel
adventures set in such rugged locales as the Tibetan Himalayas and
wilds of Africa. His most recent book is Along the Templar Trail.
This book just won the prestigious Lowell Thomas Gold Award for
2009 Best Travel Book. That award is the Pulitzer Prize for the
travel writing field. The book chronicles his recent 2,600-mile trek
for peace along what was once the route of the First Crusades from
France to Jerusalem.
This is Brandon’s tenth long-distance peace trek. He has also
walked Spain’s Camino de Santiago and Via de la Plata, St. Olav’s
Way across Norway, the Via Francigena from Canterbury to Rome,
the Buddhist pilgrim’s path from Lhasa, Tibet to Katmandu (as
related in his book Yak Butter Blues), and the Crusader trail from
France to Jerusalem (as related in his book Along the Templar Tail:
Seven Million Steps for Peace). He is a member of the prestigious
Explorers Club.For more information about the intrepid explorers,

difficult terrain, such as is captured in this photo by Cheryl.

he bus comes, rolling along the stark gray pavement and grinding to a
stop in front of the waiting children. Inside, the driver cranks open the
door, and the children enter the inner hull. They take a seat on the
padded cushions lining the interior, and the bus driver once again closes the
door. Their faith in the driver, the children begin to socialize, do a last
minute assignment, or sleep. They trust that they will arrive safely to their
destination.
It is the bus driver’s job to make this happen. Their duty is to transport the
children securely and without incident. And for Miranda Peterson, driver for the
Moon Area School district, she does just that. In order to provide the best possible
care for her students, Miranda begins organizing her day the night before.
“ ‘Safety first’ is my motto when I prepare for work the night before by checking
the next day’s weather forecast, making sure my work clothes are neat and clean, and
getting to bed at a decent hour,” said Miranda. “I awaken at 5:30 a.m., dress, grab a
cup of coffee, re-check the weather forecast, and head out the door by 6:10 a.m. At
work I sign in, check for important memos, grab the bus key, and head out to my
bus. As I approach my bus, I begin my safety check by looking for obvious issues on
its exterior. Then I start the bus and continue the daily safety check while it warms
up.”
However, a lot of the real trouble begins when Miranda finally gets on the road.
The road is where other drivers can influence her bus, and therefore where she must
be most careful.
“Automobile drivers are the worst part about driving because they threaten the
safety of my students,” said Miranda. “They jump out in front of my bus despite the
fact that it is nearly fifteen tons of metal. They ignore the eight-way lights by driving
through them; this must be because they are inattentive or they don’t fully
understand when they should stop and wait. A reminder for everyone, if you see the
eight-way system, stop! It only takes about thirty seconds to load our students.
Always stop and wait!” These new safety systems were put in place to help other
drivers be conscious of the buses around
them. However, it was not always so
clear-cut. Chet Divito works for
Student Transportation of America
(STA), Moon’s busing provider, and
runs the overall operation of the
terminal. He can remember a time
when things were not as safe.
“Some of us are old enough to
remember school buses with one
light and no yellow lights,” said
Chet. “We now have crossing arms
in the front of the buses and twoway radios in buses for
communications. Strobe lights are
now coming into practice for dark
and foggy mornings. Seating on
school buses went from metal
backs and steel rails to all seats
being covered with inches of
padding surrounding this metal.

The Pittsburgh Airport Area Chamber of
Commerce (PAACC) is pleased to announce a
new look. Over the past several months, a team of
chamber volunteers, led by Dan Murphy of
Heritage Valley Hospital, was given the green
light to completely revamp and update the
chamber’s name, logo, tagline, Web site, and
more. After months of work, the chamber will
receive its biggest facelift within its past 105 years
of existence.
“Over the years the chamber in the Pittsburgh
Airport Area has become the second largest
chamber in the Pittsburgh region,” noted
committee chairman Dan Murphy. “We wanted
to leverage the fact that we are the host chamber
in the area that welcomes new businesses into the
Pittsburgh region and beyond.”
Many Pittsburghers are unaware that the
chamber covers 31 communities surrounding
