Backyard News, 12.12.11

* Tree experts cut deal on Linglestown's Christmas tree ... According to The Patriot-News, Lower Paxton Township's Shade Tree Commission (yes, there is one) nixed the idea of "4 trees in 4 years" in the square, but recommended the location for the tree that was planted in front of Murphy's Auto Repair.

The tree was donated by Karl Valley of Paxton Church and Crums Mill roads.

* Linglestown Fire Company news ... Signs have been posted along the route Santa will travel with the help of firefighters this Sunday, Dec. 18. I'll post the schedule if I find it.

Also, Captain Sean Harp passed along a note about the passing of the fire company's last charter member, Ed Deibler. He was 100-years-old when he died on Dec. 9. Services will be held this Wednesday, Dec. 14 at Hoover Funeral Home, Linglestown. CLICK HERE for more details from The Patriot-News.

* Guess who's back? ... Shalyn's Hair Studio has reopened in the Linglestown square.

Just wondering if the pine trees could be planted in other areas than on the square. Maybe the commission would approve tree locations that wouldn't block views of traffic at the roundabout. Evergreens do add something the streetscape is missing. Why not explore other seeded areas along the side of Linglestown Rd in the town itself?

Thanks for the comment!

I believe the "4 tree" idea was tied to Christmas decorating more than adding a missing element to the streetscape.

The improvement project included the planting of many trees that thrive in narrow strips of ground. The Shade Tree Commission was consulted during planning for the project.

The village will be less barren when the trees mature.

The three Township Fire Companies (Colonial Park, Linglestown, and Paxtonia) have been asked by the Public Safety Director to provide an escort for the C.D. Rams Football team after Saturday's State Championship game. I believe the plan is to escort them win or lose, but of course with a win it would be more of a celebration. They will meet the buses on Route 22 at the Township line and go to North Mountain Road, to Linglestown Road to the High School. Thought this would be a good story for your blog...
