Well if the firebugs wouldn't set fire to the better places (like the Grafenburg Inn) maybe there would be better places in the area!  (Dec 25, 2010 | post #34)

Chambersburg residents can get free light bulb

We (my wife and I) had one of these in the light over the kitchen table. Good thing that I didn't have to see anything!  (Dec 25, 2010 | post #8)

Thousands of dead fish, algae foul harbor air

That wouldn't have been Carp littering the shore would it? When I lived near the Eastern Branch of the Anacostia River we had that every so many years. Nothing new!!  (Nov 25, 2010 | post #3)

Friendship Volunteer Fire Company

Does anyone remember the old Friendship Volunteer Fire Company? My father, Frank D. Mickey, Jr., was a member there many years ago.  (Nov 24, 2009 | post #1)

Abraham Lincoln statue plans 'on hold' in Gettysburg

I hope that Watts does find another place for his statue. Maybe Springfield, IL?  (Nov 17, 2009 | post #11)

Since they were trying to get the nine-foot statue of Lincoln in for Rememberance Day, did anyone actually bother to ask the people did they actually even want the statue? I think that there are enough statues here now, including the dumb one on the square!  (Nov 15, 2009 | post #2)

Mel Poole Named Interim Superintendent of Gettysburg NMP

I hope he'll stop the senseless destruction of our trees!! After all they change carbon dioxide to oxygen. Just because a few (very few!) people complain that it (the battlefield) doesn't look like it did in 1863 is no reason in my opinion to cut down perfectly healthy trees. They make it very pleasant in the summer when all the tourists invade the battlefield!  (Nov 15, 2009 | post #1)

I would think that one would rather forget the Battle of Bladensburg (otherwise know as "the Bladensburg Races!)  (Nov 14, 2009 | post #1)

Three injured in Social Island Road Crash

Your right! After looking at the area on Google Maps I see that that is not in the same area. Mickey's Inn was in Greene Township which did the same thing (voted itself "dry.") My family sold alcohol in the actual mill itself. They also had dances there (either Friday or Saturday nights.) They also lived in a brick farmhouse just across the road from the mill. At least one of the bedrooms in the house had the strangest setup for windows. On one side of the room the windows were way up high. On the other side the window sill was down next to the floor! I know beacause I used to sleep in that room when my family stayed overnight at my grandparents' place.  (Nov 10, 2009 | post #71)

Yeah Punt. The guy who lied about his military service to get the military vote! I think not!  (Nov 9, 2009 | post #58)

Three injured in Social Island Road Crash

Your parents didn't happen to mention the name of the mill did they? Other that being accross from Greener Pastures it sounds like the mill that my grandparents owned. Was actually run by my Uncle John Mickey and my aunt Ruth. They even named the road that ran by it Mickey Inn Road. Any body remeber this place?  (Nov 9, 2009 | post #68)
