Linglestown Wednesday musings

It’s hard to believe that it’s already hump day. Monday holidays always mess up my sense of time.

Village briefs If you’re waiting with bated breath for Verizon FiOS TV to be launched, your wait might be coming to an end in the not too distant future. Verizon has just begun negotiations for a cable TV franchise with Lower Paxton Township, according township manager George Wolfe. … What’s happening with the square project? Well, pretty much the same old same old. Township officials are still trying to nail down right-of-way agreements with property owners, and the Village Committee is trying to make arrangements with property owners to run a public water line through the historic section of the village. The township is still aiming to seek construction bids before the end of the year, said Wolfe.

Neighborhood meeting on tap Stray Winds Area Neighbors (SWAN), a community group comprised of Lower Paxton Township residents who live in the township’s northwest quadrant located just west of Linglestown, will be holding their monthly meeting tomorrow night, Thursday, May 29, 7 pm at Epiphany Lutheran Church, 1100 Colonial Road. Linglestown-area residents are welcome to attend.

The group has members attend most township meetings and file summaries of goings-on for a monthly Web-based newsletter. This is a great service for all LP residents!

I recently had a chance to meet with Eileen Hurley, the group’s secretary/treasurer, and Watson Fisher, one of the reporters that attend public meetings. Eric Epstein, a notable government watchdog who lives in LP, is a SWAN leader.

Koons Park Pool watch
The grass at the pool has been hacked down. Hey, it’s a start. I’ve been told the pool will open mid-June.

Restaurant review There’s a review of the new Mikado Japanese Steak House and Sushi Bar posted on the Linglestown forum on PennLive.com, see thread #381. The restaurant is located at the intersection of N. Mountain Road and N. Lockwillow Avenue that formerly housed Senor Pepe’ Tex-Mex.

Business expo coming to area A first-ever Summer Sales Expo is coming to New Hope Church on Colonial Club Drive this Saturday, May 31, 9 am to 2 pm. The expo will feature local independent consultants and business owners, displaying and selling their products and services. Door prizes will be awarded every half hour and some cash-and-carry items will be available – there’s sure to be something for everyone! For more info, send an e-mail to Laura Bowman.

Interesting group, SWAN is. I applaud them for their efforts, firstly. More importantly, seeing a group of people genuinely interested in their area is good to see, just like with the Village of Linglestown.

One step at a time, we can bring more people into the business of local government - which, believe it or not, is much more important than our national government when it comes to our day-to-day lives.

I ditto Harry's comments. One of my goals is to help reverse widespread apathy among the citizenry concerning civics, especially at the local level.
