Backyard News, 04.15.12

Updated on Monday, 4/16/12, at 5:45 am with link to Patriot-News article about Monday's CD school board meeting.

B² update … I’m still kicking despite the look of Linglestown Gazette over the last week or so. My time earmarked for this blog has decreased due to a new project and the looming tax due date. (FYI, updating the Gazette is a hobby that currently produces no revenue.)

Many people rely on the Gazette to publish local news and community event info that aren't available elsewhere on the Internet. For now, I intend to continue doing this as time permits.

Please consider doing a couple things if you enjoy reading the Gazette:

1. Sign up for a FREE email subscription to Linglestown Gazette so you are automatically notified when new stuff is posted on the blog. Again, it’s FREE! CLICK HERE to subscribe.

2. Sign up for the Gazette’s Twitter page to get notifications when new stuff is posted on the blog –AND- for breaking news about Linglestown, Lower Paxton Township and CD schools from The Patriot-News and local TV stations. And, yes, this is another FREE service. CLICK HERE to sign up.

Big meeting on tap … CD school board is scheduled to meet Monday evening, April 16, at 7 pm in the Lecture Hall of CD East High School. (If a large crowd shows up, the meeting might be moved to the middle school next door, according to The Patriot-News.)

Next year’s school budget that calls for massive teacher cuts is one of the items on the agenda. CLICK HERE to review the agenda. (Click on the link for the meeting in the upper, left-hand corner of the page.)

I submitted a request to speak about the budget during the public-comment portion of the meeting.

CLICK HERE for a preview of the meeting published Monday morning by The Patriot-News.

Village shopping updates … The Linglestown merchants are gearing up to host a special event called Linglestown Spring Fling on Saturday, May 5. To find out about how to spring into springtime with style, CLICK HERE.

Speaking of merchants, Gazette correspondent Q sent me a note about a nail place that opened in the space in the square that formerly was Shalyn’s Hair Studio and a craft place that located across the street. Please leave a comment if you know anything about these newbie businesses.

LP watchdog … There’s a backlog of reports in my inbox about Lower Paxton Township meetings from community group SWAN.
