Linglestown getting a touch of the Orient

Today’s top story A new business is gearing up to open on the village square next to St. Thomas Restaurant. According to a banner, Oriental Market and General Store will open Sunday, May 4. (Hat tip to Gazette contributor Q.)

I’ve got letters (from The Patriot-News) Addamay Hafer of Lower Paxton Township says Central Dauphin School District’s decision to switch to a for-profit tax collector will cost taxpayers big dollars, and rebuts statements by school board member Justin McShane. … Former Central Dauphin School Board member Helen Wagner penned a letter that takes current member Christian Malesic to task over his op-ed that questioned a proposed budget increase requested by Dauphin County Technical School.

CD sports Ouch! At the ballpark Wednesday, CD East's Levi LaFleur slammed a two-run, walk-off homer to pace the Panthers's 3-2 victory over CD. East’s Kevin Pagano drew a one-out walk in the seventh before LaFleur ripped CD reliever Zach Seaman's first pitch. Seconds earlier, Seaman took over for CD starter Kyle Weldon, who allowed no hits through 6 1/3 innings. The Rams are in third place in the division with a 5-3 record, 9-5 overall. … In another cross-township matchup, CD topped CD East 12-2 in softball as Kiersten Darhower, Tiara Tolene and Sam Sinisi each had two hits and Kelsey Shutt had two RBIs. The Rams are in first place with an 8-0 divisional record, 11-1 overall. … In girls’ lacrosse, Cumberland Valley topped CD 15-8.

Many of us like oriental food and might find a market at the square handy. I like to shop at two oriental markets on Paxton Street but Little Saigon is my favorite. If you've never eaten Vietnamese, give it a try. If you like Ramen, and who doesn't, (especially if you've been a soldier)you'll like Vietnamese "Pho".

Thanks much for submitting a comment, scoutpylut. I'm curious to see what kind of food and merchandise the store will offer. Currently, you can't see what's happening inside the house because the windows are covered.
