    Methinks that Herm should be encouraging ways to entice consumers to patronize the few businesses left in the downtown area instead of trying to turn a profit on their backs by jacking up the rates on the few parking areas that are available.

    Now if they were making drastic changes or cutting back production of Reese's Cups that maybe a very serious issue to consider. Don't get me wrong I like Hershey Chocolate Bar, but I like Reese Cups better.

    Parking meter fee goes up $10 and they wonder why people don't want to shop down town. I get you need to pay a fine if u don't put enough in the meter for the time you need but a 10.00 ticket is insane. I will stick to out of town shopping.

    High school junior makes a dress for his prom date because she couldn't afford her dream gown Danielle Zoellner For Dailymail.com 14 hrs ago © Provided by Associated Newspapers Limited Incredible: Parker Smith is a junior at Pendleton Heights High School in Pendleton, Indiana. He made his date, Addi Rust, a prom dress for the evening A high schooler who never knew how to sew decided to make his date's dream prom dress for the dance. The decision for junior Parker Smith to make his date's dress for their prom at Pendleton Heights High School in Pendleton, Indiana, came after senior Addi Rust found the perfect dress — but it was too expensive. In February, she jokingly said, 'Parker, why don’t you just make my prom dress!', Fox 59 reports. Parker thought about the request and decided he actually wanted to attempt to make the dress for his date. 'You know what, I think I could actually make your prom dress,' he told Addi. The high schooler then worked on the dress for months by teaching himself to sew and seeking out helpful tips from his grandmother. Often he would remake parts of the dress multiple times to get the sections perfect. © Provided by Associated Newspapers Limited Starting point: During the entire process, Parker confessed to making some sections of the dress multiple times to get them perfect 'I’m such a perfectionist that I was up adding more stones to the dress even the night before prom,' Parker told the news site. The finished dress was a blue ball gown Addi was able to twirl in when attending prom with Parker. © Provided by Associated Newspapers Limited Cute: Both Parker and Addi shared pictures online to show everyone how the dress turned out © Provided by Associated Newspapers Limited Off to the ball! Parker wore a light gray suit to match Addi's blue ball gown for the evening During the entire creation process, Addi was aware of what the dress would look like through each step. But she confessed to the news site to tearing up when Parker brought over the outfit ahead of prom. Addi praised her date on Twitter after the prom for going to such lengths to make her the perfect dress for the dance. © Provided by Associated Newspapers Limited Impressed: Addi raved about her best friend and commended him on being able to make the dress from scratch 'Taking a minute to brag on this man because I think this is the coolest thing that I’ve ever been a part of,' Addi wrote online. 'Parker MADE my prom dress. Straight from scratch did the whole thing and I am still speechless. I’m so lucky to have him as my best friend!' Her post featured their prom pictures, including one of her twirling the large skirt of the dress to show off the incredible outfit. Parker also shared pictures on his own Twitter to let people know about the dress he decided to make for his date. © Provided by Associated Newspapers Limited Talented: Parker said he intends to study costume design and musical theatre when attending college with the goal to become a Broadway costume designer 'Quite a journey, but the first thing I’ve ever sewn (a prom dress) has been finished, just in time for the ball,' he wrote. 'Not only did I get the honor of being the Prince Charming to the beautiful @AddiRust, but her fairy godmother as well, haha! I’m so thankful for her. (From scratch).' The dates played up the idea of Parker being the Prince Charming to Addi as they pretended to have him slip her white heel on her foot for one of the prom pictures, mirroring that of Cinderella. © Provided by Associated Newspapers Limited Reenactment: Parker said he felt like Addi's Prince Charming after he was able to create the ball gown of her dreams for the prom © Provided by Associated Newspapers Limited Fancy: The dress creation started in February so Parker would have enough time The entire experience has now inspired Parker to create more dresses from scratch. He intends to study costume design and musical theater when attending college with the goal to become a Broadway costume designer.

    I kinda like the debit/credit card method. In cities/towns that aggressively ticket parking scofflaws, it can save a fine. Download the app and you can reload your meter with out having to run back down the street or leave a restaurant to feed a meter. And you don't have to overload a meter 'just in case', which saves a few quarters.

    I am serious. I never shop downtown to use the meters so I don't get tickets either and never will have a ticket so I really don't need to worry about a 15.00 parking ticket but it's still a big jump from $5.

    When I first came here this was all swamp. Everyone said I was daft to build a castle on a swamp, but I built it all the same, just to show them. It sank into the swamp. So I built a second one, and that one sank into the swamp. So I built a third. That burned down, fell over, and sank into the swamp. But the fourth one stayed up. And that's what you're going to get, son, the strongest castle in all of DooBwa

    True. But does that conversation equate into sales of Hershey bars? Probably not. In fact, the negative feedback is probably helping the consumer switch to a competitive brand or an all together different snack.

    PSP, PennDOT Focus on Seat Belt Safety, Enforcement With ‘Click It or Ticket’ Mobilization May 14, 2019 12:24 am· Author: exploreJefferson HARRISBURG, Pa. – With Memorial Day weekend, the unofficial start of the summer travel season, less than two weeks away, the Pennsylvania State Police (PSP) and Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) encourage drivers to be safe on the roads. The agencies will work with municipal police departments and other safety partners across the commonwealth to participate in the national “Click It or Ticket” seat belt enforcement and education initiative from May 13 through June 2, 2019. “‘Click it or Ticket’ isn’t about citations, it’s about saving lives,” said PennDOT Secretary Leslie S. Richards. “Wearing a seat belt increases your chances of surviving a crash by up to 60 percent. Through continued enforcement and education, we hope to see more people buckling up and fewer fatal crashes on Pennsylvania’s roads.” Pennsylvania law requires any occupant younger than 18 to buckle up when riding in a vehicle, as well as drivers and front-seat passengers. Children under the age of two must be secured in a rear-facing car seat, and children under the age of four must be restrained in an approved child safety seat. Children must ride in a booster seat until their eighth birthday. In addition to adopting a zero-tolerance approach toward violators, troopers certified as child passenger safety technicians will offer car seat fittings and inspections throughout Pennsylvania, helping ensure that car seats are in good working condition, installed properly, and free from recalls. “State police child passenger safety technicians completed nearly 500 no-cost car seat checks during the 2018 ‘Click it or Ticket’ mobilization,” said Major James Basinger, director of the Pennsylvania State Police Bureau of Patrol. “By hosting dozens of events across the commonwealth, we hope everyone who drives with children in the car will take advantage of this resource to keep their youngest passengers safe while traveling.” A complete list of child passenger seat fitting stations is available at www.psp.pa.gov. As part of the enforcement efforts, state police, along with agencies across the United States, will participate in a Border-to-Border initiative to provide increased seat belt enforcement at state borders, reinforcing the states’ focus on safety. Preliminary PennDOT data shows that 399 people were killed in unrestrained crashes in 2018, 21 more than in 2017. Crash data for 2018 is not yet available, but in 2017 there were 14,309 unrestrained crashes in Pennsylvania, a decrease from 14,992 crashes in 2016. From 2013 through 2017, there was an average of 14,180 unrestrained crashes and more than 400 fatalities. The efforts of PennDOT and PSP are supported by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration with national advertising across TV, radio, internet, and social media. The ads, airing in English and Spanish, are designed to generate awareness of stepped-up enforcement of seat belt laws and the increased chance of getting a ticket if you’re not buckled up.

    Accused Murderer Neff in Custody May 13, 2019 Admin News, Police News LOCK HAVEN – A three-day search for accused murderer Timothy Alva Neff ended Monday night in Lock Haven’s hill district. Clinton County District Attorney Dave Strouse confirmed to therecord-online that Neff was taken into custody without incident by state police at 10:15 p.m. Monday on Bennage Avenue in Lock Haven. Neff was to be arraigned before District Justice Keith Kibbler. Neff had been sought by law enforcement since a Friday family altercation left his sister-in-law dead, the victim of a stab wound allegedly inflicted by Neff. Neff had fled the family home along Long Run Road late Friday afternoon following the dispute involving Neff, his sister-in-law, Agnes Rae Neff. She was pronounced dead at the scene of the 5:30 p.m. Friday incident which saw her husband, William W. Neff, 69, suffer non-life threatening injuries when he attempted to intervene. Additional information from state police on the Neff apprehension is expected when available, according to a check at the Lamar substation Monday night. http://therecord-online.com/site/archives/51613?fbclid=IwAR0bZudzj76c2LScTnTTqe6ZxV7JA-l2j711lh21Uriykk8JjLtIlE7ulqY

    Now that they have the sweet potato vines that don't form tubers they are easier to grow in smaller pots. I kind of liked having the tubers to save for the next season but they did take up a lot of room. This is one of the Brady St. lot pots with a red one. I think I got it from Ted Lyons.

    I am proud to live in the bucolic section where we are allowed to keep cows and pigs and fire our guns at random. Actually, the folks in DuBois are now allowed to fire their guns at random too. They are coming over to the bucolic side. Now for the Treasure Lake crowd who need to fire their guns at all of those deer that run up there to hide and eat thousands of dollars worth of exotic shrubbery each year. Let's hear it for the bucolic way of life that allows you to eat those who eat your shrubbery.

    I will preface this with the fact that I am an 'outsider' who move to the area almost 40 years ago. I have raised my own kids in the area. Chances are good, once my kids become settled elsewhere and I have retired, I shall probably move on. Actually, there might not be much to stay for in another 10 or 15 years. The only thing that might keep me here is if one of my kids happens to relocate back to this area, which is unlikely. I built my home on about 10 acres or so in Sandy. Really, I can't tell the DuBois 'city' folk from the Sandy country folk. For that matter, I can't even tell which live in the Lake, who also happen to be Sandy folk. As an 'outsider' (who has been told many times) I don't have a clue and I don't understand, all I can say is I have seen these 2 communities spend much more time and money undercutting each other than trying to cooperate to improve the area. The fate of one depends on the fate of the other. DuBois if far from being a luxurious city by any stretch of the imagination and as far as I can see, most people in Sandy aren't exactly living as homesteaders. If your main concern is that by DuBois and Sandy being a unified government could result in prosperous community, causing a massive influx of new residents due to rapid expansion of the local industrial and commercial complex that could spread in the tranquil countryside, then maybe I see your point. However, I highly doubt that would happen. But, I do believe a unified, or at least highly cooperative local governments, could improve the local economic situation. May not cause a significant expansion, but would at least slow or maybe stop the local slow downward spiral.

    What you're saying is that continuing to believe that the illusion of maintaining the status quo is a wonderful thing. The reality is that it isn't. There's no guarantee that doing nothing isn't creating a nightmare of it's own. Also, you mentioned a few posts back about taking little cooperative steps. This is one of them. Building a facility that houses both government entities isn't an inevitable step toward consolidation. All it does is centralize things. As it is now, a Sandy Township resident that has a problem with water/sewage billing has to go to the township building. If the township doesn't believe it's their problem, the resident then has to go to the city building. Then, if they're told it is indeed a township problem, they must again return to the township building. Now, if you put them in the same building, the trip is reduced to a trip down the hall. Not only that, but all three parties (resident/township/city) could all likely get together face-to-face in a single trip without all the "he-said, she-said" issues. I think that would qualify as a 'quality of life' improvement.
