Linglestown Gazette: Things and stuff

Tuesday, March 13, 2007

Things and stuff

* Has spring sprung? I doubt it, but today sure was a nice change of pace. High temp outside the Linglestown Gazette newsroom was a sunny 68 degrees. Nice!

* Now for a couple taxing matters ...

#1 - Capital Tax Collection Tax Bureau, a local agency that collects the 2-percent local tax from paychecks, seems to be underpaying Central Dauphin School District, Lower Paxton Township and several other nearby municipalities. According to The Patriot-News, the bureau has agreed to meet with local officials to discuss the problem. CLICK HERE to read the story.

By the way, Lower Paxton Township Supervisor David Blain has been spearheading the township's effort to make sure our tax dollars get to the right place.

#2 - Central Dauphin school board has finalized the tax-shift question that will appear on the May 15 primary election ballot. The issue is important to all renters and property owners. CLICK HERE for more details from The Patriot-News.

* Other notable tidbits ...

The Central Dauphn High School Alumni Association will be awarding $1,000 college scholarships to two members of the class of 2007. Applications are due by April 11, and are available at the association's Web site.

The Linglestown Garden Club is sponoring a trip on Wednesday, May 9 to Bucks County. Contact Heather Drothler at 234-8979 for the trip itinerary and other details.

Lower Paxton Historical Society will hold a "Show and Tell" meeting at St. Thomas Roasters in the village of Linglestown on Thursday, March 22 at 6 pm. Pictures and artifacts relating to the township's history will be shared.
