Enter first-ever Gazette contest

It's Wednesday, and that means the highly-acclaimed weekly feature Hump Day News 'N Notes is headed your way.

Name-that-street contest Gazette reader George submitted a good idea for a contest related to yesterday’s Linglestown Video Postcard. Check out the video and make a list of the streets and/or locations shown in the photos and video clips. CLICK HERE to submit you entry via e-mail. The reader with the most correct answers will win a cup o’ Joe at St. Thomas Roasters. Deadline for entering is Friday, March 28 at midnight. Good luck!

War of words A gigantic debate about Wal-Mart has broken out on the Linglestown forum at PennLive.com, see thread # 347.

Got the Comcast blues The furor over Comcast switching to digital TV seems to be getting more confusing by the day for those of us who haven't coughed up big bucks to get a digital high-definition television. According to a letter to the editor that appeared in today’s The Patriot-News (scroll down to the second item entitled “Cable requirement”), customers who aren’t using digital TVs will need a converter box to view channels 21 through 78 after the HDTV transition takes place next February.

The Comcast rep who I talked with today couldn't verify what channels would be moved over to a digital feed. I ordered a free-for-a-year converter box during the call.

CD High School news

* Gazette congratulations go to Alicia Kless for being named student-of-the-month for March by the Colonial Park Rotary Club.

* Did you take a tour Tuesday night of the newly renovated Linglestown Middle School. If not, CLICK HERE for details provided by Diana Fishlock of The Patriot-News.

* State police reported today that a 15-year-old female student at Central Dauphin High School has been placed in Schaffner Youth Center after carrying a knife to school Tuesday. Word on the streets is that the student may have been involved with the gunshots fired near the village Sunday night.

CD Rams sports

On the diamond, three hits by Sam Nott and three RBIs from Billy Felo headlined CD’s 14-5 decision over Palmyra. Zach Seaman added four runs scored to aid game-winner Nate Shroy.

In girls' soccer, CD opened its campaign with a stylish 4-0 victory at perennial District 11-AAA power Emmaus. The Yurkovic sisters, Allicia and Kate, combined for two goals and three assists for the Rams, who claimed a share of last spring's PIAA Class AAA title.

Moving to boys' volleyball, Nick Sheleman posted 17 kills and Jon Lutz chipped in 14 more to pace CD to a 3-1 blitz of Northern, my alma mater.
