Monday Gazette news

Ice storm cometh …

Statewide, 70,000 are still without power tonight – fortunately, most residents in the Linglestown area are not among the unlucky. I saw plenty of tree damage and a few downed utility lines Sunday afternoon

There was some excitement on Balthaser Avenue when an electrical transformer went belly up and lit up the night sky Sunday. Linglestown Fire Co. #1 was dispatched to the scene as a precautionary measure. Power was restored to homes by this morning.

Sports great visits area …

Only the over 40 crowd will appreciate this item.

Baseball hall of famer Brooks Robinson, a.k.a. the Human Vacuum Cleaner, made a stop in the Linglestown area Saturday. I have fond memories of watching Brooks play for the Orioles at Memorial Stadium in Baltimore.

Tax hike anyone?

Lower Paxton Township supervisors are scheduled to meet Tuesday night at 7:30 pm, Township Municipal Center, 425 Prince Street. Comcast cable subscribers can view a live broadcast of the meeting on channel 20.

The key agenda item is adoption of the 2008 township budget that will include a tax hike. If the budget is adopted in its current form, Koons Pool will not get its usual $10,000 grant.

I thought it was a transformer too. Turns out an electrical wire had snapped and was arcing across those below as the wind blew it around.
