As pretty much everyone knows, Division Street is closed at Solomon Creek while the bridge is being repaired. In spite of this, motorists are stuck at the traffic light at Division Street and Carey Avenue while nobody comes out of Division Street.

Hundreds (or even thousands) of person-hours and many gallons of gas have been wasted by people sitting at this traffic ligth for the past few months, and many-many more will be wasted over the next year. Why doesn’t someone have the common sense to set Carey Ave to flashing yellow and Division St. to flashing red while the repairs are underway?

First and foremost, thank you for publishing my letter last week. Secondly, and most important,

we have our baby girl back!!!!!!! A neighbor set a trap, called us on Saturday to come over, and

Magic, our cart, was there! I have so many people to thank; Mary, my Guardian Angel, Leonard, Maureen,

Brenda and her Mother-in-law, Celeste, Mark, Kim…..I can’t name them all, but I can say God

bless each and everyone of you for your help. My new found friends have restored my faith in

Headline goes here and here

and her and here and here

Last month on Election Day a local resident placed signs on the Mt.Top Hose Company # 1 property.This location is the Fairview Twp Polling site. These signs were placed there to attack and try to embarrass our Fire Company President of over 30 yrs, Mr. David Hourigan. The signs were in reference to recent gambling changes in effect by Pa. Small Games of Chance Laws. Instead of embarrassing Mr. Hourigan, this resident showed himself as rude, petty, and ignorant.

Mr. Hourigan has quietly donated thousands of hours to our community over many years. All to make sure that our Fireman and their equipment are the best that they can be. Because of Mr. Hourigan and all our Firemen, every resident of Fairview Twp and surrounding townships of the Mt.Top area can sleep well knowing that our Firemen are there to protect us and our properties. Not to mention keeping our taxes lower because of our all volunteer Department.

Just maybe if this resident (who I will not name) would use some of his negative energy towards more positive actions, he might see fit to help our Fire Department instead of looking for ways to be detrimental to this fine organization.What have you done for our community?

I ask everyone to support our Fire Department and please try to come to our Bazaar this July.
