Backyard news, 11.05.08

* I need your help to help individuals and families who are having trouble making ends meet.

Please consider stopping by Amelia’s Grocery Outlet this week to make a contribution to the Food Drive sponsored by this blog. If all you can afford is a 99-cent can of soup, hey, that’s fine with me – every little bit will be greatly appreciated by the growing number of people served by the food pantry at LifePoint Church, which serves Lower Paxton and West, East and South Hanover townships.

* The controversy over a plan floated by McNaughton Homes for 91 luxury homes on the slopes of Blue Mountain has been resolved. McNaughton, residents of Centennial Acres, community watchdog group SWAN worked together in recent weeks to come up with a revised plan that was approved Monday by the Lower Paxton Twp. supervisors.

SWAN chairman Eric Epstein and McNaughton Homes spokesman Joel McNaughton credited the board of supervisors and its chairman, Bill Hawk, for their selfless contributions during the plan review period.

* Gazette congratulations go out to the CD Rams girls' field hockey team for winning their first-ever state championship tourney game Tuesday. They defeated Downingtown West by a count of 3–1.
