The new Moon Township bistro is located in the spot formerly occupied by Bullheads Bar & Grille.
Moon native Thomas Langan said it's a "chef's dream." The former Heinz Field chef and his wife Melanie have converted the former Bullheads Bar & Grille at 988 Brodhead Road into the new Savory Hill Bistro. The eatery opened its doors this week. The bistro will focus on cooking from scratch—offering a blend of local ingredients, a wine list featuring 30 to 40 varieties and a menu that will change with the season. "It will never get stale," said Langan, who said he has 20 years of restaurant experience. "We'll be rotating menu items with local ingredients."

The state attorney general's office charges a Moon Township man with insurance fraud.

Ryan Blumling, 32, of Brodhead Road, told investigators he would sometimes obtain legitimate scripts from doctors and then "wash" the script—wiping it blank with acetone so he could add the drug and quantity he desired. Blumling is charged with forgery, insurance fraud and drug possession in connection to the incident. A physician in Monaca contacted investigators in April after learning that a man identified as Blumling passed several fraudulent prescriptions in the Beaver County area using his …

There will be plenty to celebrate on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, but Riverdale Church is making plans for a special New Year's Day celebration, too.
Think of how busy you've been the past few weeks. Now multiply that by 200, and you have some idea about the goings-on at Riverdale Presbyterian Church this season. The congregation offered free gift-wrapping to shoppers at Beaver Valley Mall, and then church members filled a truck with new toys for disadvantaged children in Washington, Pa. Along the way, the church members managed to compile and publish a cookbook, which became a church best-seller and has all but sold out. Now the church is preparing for two services this weekend: 6 p.m. Christmas Eve, when the band will play, and 9 a.m. Christmas, when music will be accoustical. After that, everybody will take a breather before the festivities start again on New Year's Day, when the …
