Weekend backyard news, 10.18.08

* Dan and Katy Pratt, a young couple from Mechanicsburg, provided musical entertainment Friday evening at St. Thomas Roasters. They performed a good-sounding set of Christian and cover songs, along with a few original tunes.

* Koons Park was a busy place Saturday morning. Preparations started before dawn for a youth football playoff game.

Roofers were hard at work finishing a job on the salt storage dome and ripping off the roof on the maintenance building next to the main pavilion.

Finally, a crew from the Paxton Creek Watershed and Education Association were preparing to plant a rain garden next to the salt storage dome. The garden is one way the association is working to help clean up the Chesapeake Bay. Apparently storm water that drains from the park eventually reaches the Paxton Creek and ultimately the bay. The plants in the garden are supposed to filter out pollutants that get washed into the soil from the dome and parking lot. Another benefit of the garden is that it should increase the amount of water runoff that percolates into the water table.

* Friday’s edition of The Patriot-News included some stuff about life in Lower Paxton Twp.

– LP officials find a creative way to pledge allegiance to the flag.

– Comcast cable TV is no longer the only show in town as LP and 20 other midstate municipalities are about to get fiber optic service, or FiOS, TV from Verizon. CLICK HERE for a Q&A about Comcast and Verizon services.

Does St. Thomas ever get NON "christian contemporary" style groups in? Every group or performer I've seen listed there sounds about the same. I don't mean to be ignorant about it but it's really not a sound I prefer. You've mentioned that it's a shame more people don't come around for the free music, it could be that some people--who would ordinarily enjoy coffee shop music stuff-- don't really care for the sort of music they're bringing in.

Of course the owner has a right to support whatever kind of music he likes, blah blah blah, but if he wants to bring in a more diverse crowd he might consider more diverse music.

RE: Any NON "christian contemporary" style groups at Roasters

Sure ... check out Frank Cotolo the next time he does his thing. Plus, be sure to go hear Antonio Andrade (lifeshakes.com) on Friday, Nov. 7.

Java Geof doesn't recruit talent. People looking for a stage sign up to play, no audition required.
