Linglestown Gazette: Heard on the streets

Wednesday, November 14, 2007

Heard on the streets

Paul, John and Jim …

Is this the name of some British pop group? Could be, but I’m referring to the last three owners of the auto repair shop in the Linglestown square.

According to a source, Jim Murphy, the newest owner who recently opened Murphy's Automotive with his son, worked in a supervisory capacity for Midas Muffler in the Harrisburg region prior to going into business for himself. The customer that I chatted with was very satisfied with her first service job at the shop, a fuel pump replacement.

Purdy beat Malesic ...

According to the latest edition of The Paxton Herald, Christian Malesic defeated write-in candidate Jay Purdy in last week's school board race even though Purdy received nearly 1,400 more votes than Malesic.

Was the election rigged? Hardly. The paper claims voters were confused by Purdy's name appearing on the ballot in the township supervisor race, and pushed that button instead of writing in his name for school board.

Purdy stopped campaigning for township supervisor in October to run against Malesic, a move that came too late to get his name off the ballot.

Townhouse construction delayed …

I’ve been told McNaughton Homes won’t start construction this calendar year on The Townes at Autumn View, an 18-unit luxury condo community near Koons Park. The condition of the housing market apparently isn’t suitable for moving forward with the project at this time.

Site prep and street construction have been completed. Installation of underground utilities is almost finished.

Ho, ho, oh no ...

Think twice before decorating for Christmas before Thanksgiving. Check out this story out of Cumberland County.

Any word on the development on Patton Road where that farm is at the base of the mountain that McNaughton Homes controls?

From The Patriot-News on 11/15/07:

The Lower Paxton Twp. planning commission tabled plans for a 300-home development. McNaughton Co.’s proposal to build Autumn Oaks on 313 acres off Patton Road was put on hold.

Service and communication at Murphy's is great! Had a bit of work done and was happy to hear my phone ring with what they found and cost to fix it. Quick too.
