Backyard news, 01.20.09

B² update ... The stomach virus making the rounds at my house snagged me last night, so I'm a low-energy journalist today. I'm going to keep this update short and sweet.

Government watchdog ... Three of the five Lower Paxton supervisors held a brief meeting tonight (Bill Seeds and Bill Hornung were absent). Notable actions: Reading-based McCullough Consulting Group was hired to assist the township obtain grants for the ongoing sewer improvement projects, and two resolutions were approved for the planned traffic signal at the intersection of Locust Lane and Nyes Road.

Police update ... Bill Hawk, who chairs the Lower Paxton Board of Supervisors, swore in Bryan Walters, a native of Lewisburg, as a new township police officer tonight. Walters recently graduated from the Police Academy at Harrisburg Area Community College. Godspeed to you, Bryan, as you patrol our neighborhoods.

And, the following officers were promoted by Chief of Police Bair: Gary Seifelt, promoted to lieutenant; Timothy Hicks, promoted to sergeant; Justin DePasqua, promoted to corporal; Rich Needham, promoted to corporal. Congrats to all!

LP resident seeking judgeship ... Dauphin County Assistant DA Francis Chardo, a Lower Paxton resident, is seeking election to the Dauphin County bench. He's been involved in some notable cases, including the pending perjury case against Pocono slots casino owner Louis DeNaples, a rich guy in the Scranton area who is rumored to have mob connections.

Love that link love ... Here's a shoutout to Matthew Koons of West Hanover Twp. for linking to the Gazette on his self-entitled news and commentary blog Matthew Koons Reports. Matthew reports that he had a meal at the Chocolate Cafe yesterday and thought it was very good.
