Linglestown TGIF

CD news CD school board member Christian Malesic got a mention in The Patriot-News today in a story about Dauphin County Technical School’s budget for next year getting final approval. Malesic has been an opponent of the tech school's spending plan, saying its 3 percent increase is too much. He wrote an op-ed piece that outlined his position that was published last month in The Patriot-News, and he recently offered a resolution that the CD board passed stating that it would not raise the district’s property tax rate for next school year. … CD School District isn’t alone in dealing with woes related to having two high schools.

What are you doing to cut fuel and other energy costs?

I've downgraded from my military retired and plush revamped Hummer to the H3. It's a touch more economical on gas and should remain so even after I have the full size fridge/freezer and minibar installed. The kids like a nice icy Koolaid after their soccer games.

Kidding aside, driving an economical and reliable vehicle all along has always saved me money and continues to do so. Other bits: lights off when not needed and heating/cooling of zones rather than all spaces.

Bill, I've been trying to conserve energy and save on gas bills by driving closer to the speed limit.

Now's a really good time to get in the habit of doing this because the kids of the neighborhood will be out of school soon.

Consider driving 20-25 MPH through residential areas.
