Linglestown Gazette: BB’s Linglestown notebook

Saturday, August 23, 2008

BB’s Linglestown notebook

* Linglestown got some ink in Friday’s edition of The Patriot-News. Beat reporter T.W. Burger filed an interesting story about the fate of an old, old cemetery (pictured) owned by the Linglestown Church of God.

* Speaking of Burger, I had the pleasure of meeting Terry in person for the first time this week. We broke bread and swapped stories at St. Thomas Restaurant just prior to his meeting with church officials to gather information about the cemetery. I discovered his wit and storytelling prowess when he penned a column entitled "Burger To Go" that appeared weekly in The Patriot-News. The paper dropped the column a few years ago, but you can still read Terry’s latest musings on his blog.

* After an intense week of following Linglestown Twilight baseball, it’s now time to make the transition to football as the Linglestown Colts varsity teams start their season tomorrow (Sunday, Aug. 24) at Koons Park against the Mechanicsburg Wildcats, first game at 1 pm. I tentatively plan to attend the midget division contest and file a report about what takes place on this blog.

* Kudos to the LP parks crew and the football association for greening up the gridiron at Koons Park.

* I chatted with Village of Linglestown Committee member Bill Minsker about the upcoming square and village improvement project. He said construction is still tentatively scheduled to start next spring. He did pass along a new tidbit – enough property owners along Linglestown Road in the historic section of the village want to hook up to the public water system for a waterline to be installed as part of the project.

* My buddy Frank Cotolo and his traveling musical extravaganza is once again booked to appear on the stage at St. Thomas Roasters coffeehouse on Friday, Sept. 5, 8-10 pm, no cover. Be sure to mark this date on your social calendar!

* Last but not least, here’s an update on the mowing contest – The dry patch of weather that we’re experiencing has caused BB’s mowing count to be stuck at 21 since Aug. 4.

As for the mowing contest, thank the Lord for the August dry spell which in turn keeps Bill's mower on the sidelines. My contest entry of 27 is still in the running it appears. Yes!
