Backyard News, 12.27.11

Mystery solved ... If you wonder what happens with donations that are dropped in clothing collection boxes like the one pictured, CLICK HERE for a good explanation by Patriot-News columnist Nancy Eshelman. There's a box in Linglestown at Murphy's Automotive in the square.

Celebrity linked to Linglestown ... WGAL TV-8 reporter and anchor Jim Sinkovitz grew up in the Linglestown area and played baseball for Linglestown baseball teams. (Hat tip to Bob Kemmler, founder of the Linglestown Twilight sandlot baseball team.)

Flag in dark ... As far as I know, the lights for illuminating the U.S. flag on the new flagpole in the Linglestown square still are not working. PPL is supposed to take care of the problem, according to Lower Paxton Twp. manager George Wolfe. (Hat tip to the Linglestown Merchants' Association.)

Tea time at Roasters ... St. Thomas Roasters coffee house in Linglestown was recently featured on a local food blog called "paindecampagne."
