Linglestown Gazette: Linglestown gets artsy

Linglestown gets artsy

The back room of The Linglestown Chocolate Cafe was converted into an art gallery Wednesday to display the work of David Russell (pictured, right side of photo), a Lower Paxton Twp. resident who served as a combat artist for the Army National Guard. The event was organized by the Lower Paxton Township Arts Council.

I attended the open house with my daughter and enjoyed the wide variety of subjects that David captured in his paintings. After getting home, I realized that I’d met David a few times at St. Thomas Roasters and a couple times at church – but I didn’t know his last name.

Koons Pool update Gazette reader Gail Reece of Delectably Yours Home Interiors & Decor submitted an update on what's happening (or not happening) with the pool:

I called the township today for additional information and they still do not know when it will open and there are no guarantees it will. It's a sad day. We were looking so forward to the pool again this year.
Mixed bag of nuts If you love dogs like I do, you may want to participate in a capital campaign planned by the Humane Society of Harrisburg. … Now, a brief civics lesson – CLICK HERE to learn what happens when local governments don’t get tax payments on a timely basis. This is a problem that Lower Paxton Twp. and CD schools have experienced with Capital Tax Collection Bureau, resulting in the bureau getting the boot. … Time for another Q-tip – Sutliff has closed its sales location that was located in front of the Gander Mountain sporting goods store. … CD East and CD high schools held graduation ceremonies this week. … The rain must have come down in buckets last night. I slept through the storm and awoke to the sound of my sump pump running.
