Teen wants a change of venue

give him the change in venue. At the same time put the death penalty back on the table. See if he REALLY wants that change of venue.  (May 10, 2011 | post #34)

Retiring administrator mounts York City school board writ...

While she will likely get my vote, I do have some reservations. She is the one who took time off during the school year to finish her schooling, leaving the school leaderless for half the year.....twice. She also made it to principle for a year. then retired with full principle retirement package. Part of the fiscal problem the district has. Have also noted her playing favorites while an administrator. That said she will STILL likely get my vote.  (May 9, 2011 | post #7)

York City takes aim at 'predatory' towing

You are only seeing part of the problem. There have been several cases where they have towed a car even when the people are in the establishment that own the lot. In one case a landlord came in to town to fix up his property between leases. He parked in the lot he owned behind the building and got towed. When he went to intown motors to ask why they towed him, he was informed that they had permission from the owner to put up a sign and tow at will. He had to show a copy of the deed before they gave him is car back and removed the sign they put up WITHOUT his permission. I agree, don't park where you shouldn't but there is a whole other layer of this that needs to be addressed. Plus $180 for a tow of less than 5 miles? I called and had my car towed over 20 miles and it cost me less than 60.  (May 9, 2011 | post #41)

York towing company owner opposes proposed rules

I seem to recall a landlord came into town to fix up his property between leases. Parked in the parking lot he owned behind the property. Got towed. Was told by intown motors that they had a contract with the property owner. It took him bringing in a copy of the DEED to get his car back and the towing sign removed from the property. Is this ordinance designed to put them out of business? maybe, but it will also keep all others inline as well.  (May 5, 2011 | post #27)

York towing company owner opposes proposed rules

I wanna know how $180 is reasonable for the tow charge. I called a tow truck for my car and they charged me 60 bucks to haul is 10 miles.  (May 5, 2011 | post #11)

Nuclear Power - York, PA

For those who are against Nuke plants, what do you suggest as an alternative? Solar and wind are too expensive and simply will not even begin to cover the amount of electric we use every single day. Hydro is great where it is possible but still has potential problems. So give us an alternative that is both available right now, not future technology, and is on par with what we are charged for power by the nuke plants now. I have looked in to both wind and solar for my home. The idea of spending 40k in solar equipment in order to supply MOST of my electric is over the top for a average bill of 125 per month. Same with wind. Don't forget we are all going to be driving electric cars in the next few years. where do you propose we get the power for THAT mess when it starts?  (May 5, 2011 | post #15)

No casino at Gettysburg

anyone who remembers what Charlestown WV looked like before the casino can tell you what a hole the place was. they had a run down diner and a nasty Mcdonalds, one shopping center looking like it was built in the 60s. After slots the place boomed. Plenty of jobs outside the casino! Oddly enough, HISTORIC Harpers Ferry boomed as well. You can't argue the facts. From HOLE to Boomtown. Just add casino.  (Apr 14, 2011 | post #23)

EDITORIAL: District's, city's fates tied

Methodist church in York might need to be demolished

Homeowners have paid alot of money.......Have you been to East King and South Pine lately? Think on this, while all the back and forth is going on that building is sitting empty. Empty in a not so great neighborhood. How long before someone breaks in? how long will it sit before something or someone causes a fire? Vacant buildings attract the homeless. IF a homeowner had a 100k house in a historic district and they were told the house was unsafe to live in and it would cost 100k to fix it, while they were on a fixed income. What do you think will happen? Do you really think they would drop 100k into a 100k value house? BTW HARB has bent and broken the rules in the not so distant past. I seem to recall them Having a fit when The Lutheran church (just a few block from this one) replaced its copper gutters for the second time and didn't do it the way HARB wanted. The church used better fastening so they would be tougher to steal a third time. The church told HARB if they didn't like it they would change it IF HARB would pay the next time the gutters were stolen. Guess which one blinked, (Hint the gutters are still there with the new fasteners.) Keeping a building historic and proper is great, but COST needs to be figured into it. Remember the church didn't buy a historic building. The church was there LONG before HARB ever existed.  (Apr 14, 2011 | post #25)

Not that I look at them all that closely when going to the market, I think they are covered by wire mesh to keep people from throwing rocks through them. Would not stop a pellet gun though. I did notice some of the windows have missing bits and pieces.  (Apr 11, 2011 | post #4)
