The store will be open Monday from 10 am to 9 pm.

CD sports Gazette congratulations go out to CD junior Justin Shirk for winning his second straight PIAA Class AAA javelin title Saturday at Shippensburg University. The story behind Shirk’s victory as told by Rod Frisco of The Patriot-News is quite interesting.

History byte The official name of the historic section of Linglestown is The Town of St. Thomas. Linglestown Gazette reader Harry recently asked in a comment if Thomas Lingle, the town’s founder, named the town after himself, or the saint. Please post a comment or send an e-mail if you’re in the know.

History byte #2 … According to two longtime residents of the Linglestown area, the home where St. Thomas Roasters coffee house is located previously was a pharmacy that closed up shop sometime in the mid-1970s.

Mowing contest update … For those of you entered in the mowing contest, the count is up 10. Due to last week’s rainy weather, the last cut started on Wednesday and ended on Friday.
