A Hail Mary

As a long-time thorn in Londonderry Township’s side, the fate of the scorched 230 Diner, located on East Harrisburg Pike, has remained unknown. But that could soon change, according to Londonderry Township’s solicitor Mark Stewart. At the Tuesday, Feb. 7 Londonderry Township meeting, Stewart said a petition was filed last week to the Dauphin County Court – a last-ditch Hail […]

From Where I Sit

Noted with interest the photo and caption in the Jan. 20 edition of The Sun that one of Rosemary and I’s favorite restaurants, and our former “Cheers” every Wednesday and Friday night when we were operating the paper, is apparently going to soon have a new owner.
