Hump day backyard news links

Here’s another in a news series of posts dedicated to keeping you in the know about all things Linglestown, Lower Paxton and CD schools …

Lower Paxton Twp. Is LP going to the dogs? Nah, but some residents do want a dog park. … Linglestown Gazette ran a police report last week about a fatal car crash. CLICK HERE to read the tragic story about the victim. … Time for a Q-tip: Ben’s Bagel Bakery & Cafe has closed its location at the plaza along Linglestown Road that is the home of Papa John’s pizza.

CD schools The new chief of the embattled Capital Tax Collection Bureau went before the CD school board Monday to ask them to reconsider giving the bureau the boot. The board’s likely response: You’re still fired! CLICK HERE for a summary of what took place by T.W. Burger of The Patriot-News. … Gazette congrats go out to new CD graduate Britney Kepler for being awarded a $1,000 scholarship from the CD High School Alumni Association. She is the daughter of Doug and Andrea Kepler of Linglestown, and will attend the University of Pittsburgh School of Nursing. (Source: The Patriot-News)

Koons Pool news Chuck Barto, the contact person for Koons Pool, has submitted a formal request to Lower Paxton Twp. for financial assistance to open the pool, according to Brian Leutchford, director of the township parks and recreation department. The supervisors have not acted on the request, he said. Leutchford did not know if the pool would be opened this season. The township does not operate the pool – it leases the facility to the pool board.

If you need a place to cool off or to swim laps, consider going to nearby Devon Manor pool.

Just talked to Chuck Barto and he advised that Koons Pool is to open this weekend, provided they are able to obtain the right chemicals.

This is great new for residents!

Keep your fingers crossed!

Can anyone please update on the status of the Pool? We drove by again Wed. and did not see anyone there working on it. Many members have migrated to other pools, some of us are paying per day to visit other pools awaiting the opening of this pool.

Could just doesn't cut it.

If the pool was a ball park the township would have found the $$$, water and chemicals to open on schedule and the use of phrases such as hope, could, should would never be considered. Come on Lower Paxton, get with it!
