Backyard News, 05.20.09

* I'm sorry to report that Lower Paxton police detective Joseph Allegrini, age 43, died unexpectedly last Thursday due to complications from hip surgery. (obituary)

* Gazette congratulations go out to two Linglestown boys who qualified to compete in the PIAA State Track and Field Championships at Shippensburg University, May 22 & 23:

Aaron Reynolds (pictured), a senior at Harrisburg Christian School, finished second in the District 3 AA Championship and is ranked sixth in the 1600 meter run for the AA State Championship.

Ed Schrom, a sophomore at CD High, finished fifth in the District 3 AAA Championship and is ranked 19th in the 1600 meter run for the AAA State Championship.

* Staying with high school sports, CD High boys' volleyball team won the Mid-Penn championship last week. Tonight they will be competing in the District 3 tournament at Central York High School. ... And, in baseball, CD High squeezed by Waynesboro 4–3 to advance to quarterfinals of the District 3 tourney. For a game report, CLICK HERE and scroll down.

* Dauphin County now operates a recycling center that accepts electronic products, as well as confidential paper shredding. Prior to the opening of the center, the county held recycling days two times a year at HACC. (Directions:  From Harrisburg traveling south on Cameron Street toward Steelton Borough, turn left at the City of Harrisburg Public Works sign. The recycling center is the first building on the right.)

Hundreds, if not well over a thousand persons attended the two wake sessions. My own wait was 1:15, but others later stood in line for two hours.
A real tribute to the man as a family member, involved community member, sports coach and law enforcement professional.
