Backyard news, 02.13.09

Businesswoman seeks school board seat ... Linda Dallago (pictured) has thrown her hat into the ring for the Central Dauphin School Board seat in Region 2, which covers Dauphin Borough, Middle Paxton Twp. and part of Lower Paxton Twp. In a press release, she pledged to work with other board members to bring spending under control and improve test scores.

Dallago has been actively involved with the school district for years, serving as PTO president at Mountain View Elementary and Linglestown Middle schools. Also, she helped found and organize Central Dauphin Youth Cheerleading in 2000.

In a letter to the editor published by The Patriot-News last summer, Dallago accused Justin McShane, the current officeholder, of relentlessly challenging the decisions and management of Dr. John Scola, the former schools superintendent who resigned last year.

To learn more about Dallago, check out a press release she issued last week to announce her candidacy.

One discussion thead on Pennlive deals with stink bugs...they have really started to infest the area.
Has anyone in the Linglestown area had any luck with extermination of them? They are slow-moving critters and easy to capture in a napkin or whatever, but how do you get them where it hurts...where they nest? Do they have any natural predators?
