LAUREL MOUNTAIN BOROUGH ONLINE NEWSLETTER
OUT & ABOUT MAY 2009
May 21, 2009—4:00 a.m.—The bear appeared in the Holland’s yard, and was later reported as being seen in the yards at Hemlock and Walnut Roads. It may have had cubs with it. The bear, though large, did not appear to be aggressive, but gently investigated bird feeders. The Holland’s one rhubarb plant received very minor damage, although the knocked-down empty bird feeder was hung above the rhubarb. Monte saw the bear, and Carolyn saw its back end as it passed by a window.
The roadwork is just about complete, except for a culvert and the calcium chloride sealer, a dust depressant.
The house at 27 Maple Road was sold to the Ross family, which includes a young teenage son.
Just after this house was sold, the Adair house on Laurel and Maple Roads went on the market.
The pool is being readied. It has new drain that meets current regulations, has been power-washed, and when the joints are sealed, it can be filled. However, it also needs a pump, which is in the process of being located.
Congratulations to both Amy and Dan O’Brien, who successfully passed their lifeguard certification and will be available to fill in at the pool as needed. Other life guards from the Borough include Mary Jane (council member, fill-in lifeguard), Jesse, and John.
Congratulations to Jesse Grasso, who graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a major in Linguistics. She is registered in the same university for grad school…Jesse was also among a generous group of Ligonier area persons who participated in the Pittsburgh marathon. Her time for the 26.2 mile run was 3 hours and 54 minutes. It is her second race at that distance.
Carolyn Holland was notified that one of her photos will be on the Ligonier calendar in the October slot. She had the cover photo on the 2009 calendar…Several impromptu writing sessions, attended by Borough residents and members of the Beanery Writers Group, have occurred at Carolyn’s. Hopefully, this will occur on a regular basis as the nice weather hits. If you write, or would like to start writing, send Carolyn an E-mail: beanerywriters at yahoo.com.
Might I add some seasonal reading:
Or some cautionary reading:
