Linglestown Gazette: Backyard news, 10.30.08

Backyard news, 10.30.08

* In high school sports, CD High's girls' field hockey team continued their winning ways in the playoffs by slipping by a tough Hershey squad 1–0 Wednesday at Henry Hershey Field. The Rams (19-4) will meet two-time defending champ Lower Dauphin (20-2-1) at 3 pm Saturday back on the Milton Hershey School campus for the district title.

* Lower Paxton Twp. police are investigating a purse snatching that occurred Tuesday night outside the Colonial Park Mall.

* Thanks to those of you who tracked down historical facts on Linglestown’s flying Pletz boys. Read the tragic story of their attempt to fly over Blue Mountain into Fishing Creek Valley that is inscribed in the pictured tombstone.

* I received a note from Rob Nease, publisher of HarrisburgatHome.com, about a contest that he is running on his website – a ticket giveaway to see Theatre Harrisburg's "Sound of Music" at the Whitaker Center in Harrisburg for the performance on Friday, Nov. 7. Check out the contest page and enter before noon on Monday, Nov. 3 – the winner will be contacted by phone. Thanks Rob!

* On the Election 2008 front, state Rep. Ron Marsico is unopposed on the ballot. This situation frustrates me because I believe no elected official should get a free pass.

As you know, recently I contacted Marsico about a planned dog park in Lower Paxton Twp., and I still haven’t received an acknowledgement to my e-mail and hand-delivered letter. Another Gazette reader and one of my friends had similar experiences.

All this tells me that Marsico badly needs to be challenged in the next election cycle during 2010. Please post a comment if you know someone who you believe would be a good candidate for taking on Marsico.

Bill, on your comments regarding Ron Marsico (and others) running unopposed. I agree 100%. Unfortu-nately, you probably saw the P-N article that Marsico had raised $40K for a non-competitive campaign. There are a lot of bright people in this District, and the Democratic Party needs to get more organized (outside the city) to support a candidate. I should have ran 2 years ago when I was unemployed.

Thanks for bringing light to this.
