Jl 8 POST-GAZETTE: Thurs., July 29, 1982 ObituariesWeather Rev, Vincent Rocco dies, Diocese panel chairman The Rev. Vincent J. Rocco, 54, chairman of the Greensburg Catholic Diocese Commission on Peace and Justice for the past 12 years, died of a heart attack in Penn Hills yesterday morning. He was pastor of St. Matthew Church, Saltsburg, Indiana County, and was active in ecumenical and civic programs. Born May 13, 1928, in Braddock, he was the son of the late Giacomo and Carmella Rocco. He attended Dickson School in Swissvale and graduated from Cathedral Preparatory School in Erie. He received his bachelor degree from Maryknoll Seminary, New York, and his master of arts degree from St. Vincent Seminary, Latrobe, Westmoreland County, in 1954. He was ordained in 1955 by the late Bishop Hugh L. Lamb, head of the Greensburg diocese, and served churches in Greensburg and Mones-sen, Westmoreland County, and Dunbar, Fayette County. Father Rocco was the priest adviser of the Diocesan Council of Catholic Women Community Affairs Commission and also was a member of the Department of Justice and Rights of the Pennsylvania Catholic Conference.

Greater Pitt flights edge toward pre-strike levels Traffic at Greater Pittsburgh International and Allegheny County airports increased steadily during the first half of the year, according to a report released yesterday. But the number of passengers and flights using the county-owned facilities is still below levels set before last year's air traffic controllers' strike. David L. Donahoe, county aviation director, said the weak economy and continued restrictions by the Federal Aviation Administration on the number of flights have kept down activity at the airports. Donahoe said it will be the end of the year before the volume of operations returns to last year's averages. Even then, operations will be 15 percent lower than June and July 1981, when the airports set records for the number of passengers and flights. The total number of commercial operations at both airports rose from 19,166 in January to 21,534 last month, an increase of 12 percent, the report said. The number of passengers increased from 683,240 in January to 879,689 last month. Compared with the same period for 1981, the number of flights is down 19.6 percent and the number of passengers is down 12.1 percent. Greater Pitt was one of the commercial airports that suffered the largest cutbacks after the controllers went on strike last Aug. 3. Donahoe said additional growth in the number of flights and passengers is expected this fall, when USAir expects to be at its pre-strike level. County retirees granted increase The county Retirement Board granted a $10-a-month pension increase yesterday for 3,000 retired county workers. The increase, effective retroactively to June 8, is to cover increased costs of health insurance premiums. But the board put off action on a request for another increase of ?25 a month to cover cost-of-living increases. Comissioner William R. Hunt, retirement board chairman, said the board would not act on that request until the minimum service requirement for pension eligibility is raised from eight years to 15 years. The board voted unanimously to ask the state Legislature for permission to change the eligibility. Only people hired after the change is approved would be affected. Hunt said the pension fund could not afford the $25 cost-of-living increase unless the pension eligibility requirements are tightened. The requests for both pension increases came from the Allegheny County Retirees Association. Joseph C. Swider, chairman of the association, thanked the board for its action. He said the retirees understand the financial position of the pension fund and hope that the cost-of-living increase will be granted in the future. In asking for the increases last April, Swider said county retirees had not received a pension increase since 1975. Moses said the average retiree receives a pension of $600 a month plus Social Security benefits. Pickpockets in comeback, so stay alert By Jim Gallagher Post-Gazette Stafl Writer The descendants of Light-fingered Louie are back in town. Hold on to your wallet. Pickpockets are working Pittsburgh's streets again, police say. And more of the sticky-fingered thieves are expected to be in action now that the Pirates are drawing bigger crowds to the stadium and Downtown eateries and watering holes. Not too long ago, pickpockets seemed headed for the endangered species list of criminals along with grave robbers, cattle rustlers and snake-oil hustlers. Now, however, pickpockets seem to be making a comeback. Pittsburgh police have arrested about a dozen so far this year, and no one knows how many got away. Pickpockets usually work in teams of three, says Robbery Squad Sgt. Pete Walsh. Two members are called 'stalls' or "bumpers." The other is known as a "lifter." Typically, one of the bumpers jostles the victim, distracting his attention. The lifter lifts his wallet in the confusion. The lifter then quickly passes the wallet to the third team member. That way, the lifter can't be caught red-handed." The victims are usually men, often elderly men, says Walsh. "The old people get more upset when you jostle them because they don't want to get hurt," he explains. The trick is to distract the victim's attention so that he doesn't pay attention to the sensation of his wallet disappearing. One of the pickpocket team's favorite scams takes place at a crowded busstop. It goes like this: The first bumper boards the bus and asks the driver a question. He then turns to get off and bumps the victim in the process. The lifter then lifts his wallet. In another version, the bumper drops change near the victim and bends to pick it up. To frustrate the pickpocket, Walsh recommends that men carry wallets in their jacket pockets. They might also keep their money in their front pockets. Women should keep their wallets buried as deeply in their purses as possible. Walsh says the victim of a pickpocket should make a lot of noise about it. Bus drivers can call for police by radio, he notes. Man in wheelchair missing for week A missing persons report has been filed for Paul Stirling, 52, of 2117 E. Carson St., Southside, who is confined to a wheelchair. His wife Jackie said he hasn't been seen since July 21. He left home in his wheelchair, taking with him only Valium and codeine. "He has been very depressed and I'm afraid he might do something to himself," Mrs. Stirling said. "He is very depressed about the wheelchair. He has been in it about a year." Stirling is 6 feet tall, 160-165 pounds, has blue eyes, fair skin and light brown hair with a receding hairline. He wears black-framed glasses. Lottery numbers Yesterday's daily number 663. Big 4 - 2879. Cinemette South's run near end- By Chet Wade Post-Gazette Start Writer Yet another movie theater appears to be heading for "THE END." The Allegheny County Industrial Development Authority approved a $1.2 million loan yesterday to several businessmen to convert Cinemette South in Scott into an office building. The theater, part of the Cinemette chain, is located at 2090 Greentree Road. Earl Hollinshead, who appeared before the authority board representing the businessmen, said the sale has not yet been completed. Approval of the loan by the authority was needed before the transaction could be worked out, he said. Cinemette South, which has two theaters, will continue to operate until the sale is completed, Hollinshead said. Hollinshead is listed as a trustee for three of the principals in the deal: Ann M. Rosenberg, James R. Mendelson and Kathy S. Mendelson. Also listed as principals are S. Michael Streib and Leonard M. Mendelson. Several offices are already located in the building. By leveling off the sloped floors of the theaters, the prospective purchasers hope to have a total of 23,000 square feet of office space on the 2.3 acres of land. Employment is expected to reach 59 people with a payroll of $1.2 million annually within three years. The industrial development authority also approved a $6.27 million loan to Parkway Center Associates to acquire 3.31 acres on Old Campbells Run Road, Robinson, and to erect a four-story office building and parking garage. Paul Kossman, Town Develop ment Inc. and Muben Realty Co. are listed as general partners in ParK way Center Associates. The 88,000-square-foot building is expected to employ 400 people withr in three years of completion. Other loans approved by the ai thority board were: $2.1 million in two loans to Chi? Chi's Inc. of Louisville, Ky., to erect Mexican restaurants and cocktajl. lounges in Parkway Center Mall and on William Penn Highway in Monroeville. Each restaurant would seat 400 people. $600,000 to Don Allen Chevre" let Co. for a $1.2 million project that includes the purchase of 1.3 acres along Baum Boulevard and the corf-struction of a 9,000-square-foot' building to service and repair cafs7 $500,000 to Watson-Standard Co. toward a $520,000 renovation ol a four-story office building at 101-103 Wood St., Downtown. Plum OKs zoning for retirement units Plum Borough Council last night tentatively approved a zoning change that would allow for a 370-unit retirement community in the East Oakmont section. The unanimous vote allows the Presbyterian Association on Aging of Oakmont to begin plans for the 1 community, to be located on 200 acres on Route 909 adjacent to Oakmont East Golf Course. The plan calls for 250 homes and a 120-unit apartment building to be built by next summer. Charles Pruitt, president of the association, told council that his group had chosen the East Oakmont site from six in Allegheny County. Presbyterian Association has operated a home in Oakmont since 1950, and a group home in Washington, Washington County. Based on Heritage Village, a 2,800-unit community in Southbury, Conn., the East Oakmont communi ty will be planned to "place homes in the landscape without flattening trees," Pruitt said. Residents will receive maid ser-vice and exterior home maintenance. About 20 residents, most from the East Oakmont section, attended the meeting, saying they were concerned that the borough would open dead-end streets or add to a sewage problem. But Mavor A.E. "Tony" O'Block said that a sewage plant along Plum Creek might part of the plan. "In my opinion, this is going to help East Oakmont get its sewerage a little faster," O'Block said. located become Rape charges are dismissed Rape charges were dismissed yesterday against three men accused of attacking a Pittsburgh Job Corps student in Schenley Park because the woman decided not to prosecute. The men, also students at the Job Corps, located at 3113 Forbes Ave., Oakland, are Michael Myerski, 19, of Wilkes-Barre, Luzerne County; William Schmalz, 19, of Johnstown, Cambria County; and Marc Johnson, 20, of Leetsdale. Police said the incident occurred on July 17, under the Anderson Street Bridge in Schenley Park. The 17-year-old woman, who lives in Harrisburg, had gone into the park with one of the men, and later met up with the others. She later identified the men for the police and warrants were issued for their arrests. Meteorological record Highest temp. July 29 Pollution forecast since 1874 was 96 in 1901. Downtown Moderate.
