Curb, sidewalk discussion set

GREENCASTLE, Pa. - Residents of South Carlisle Street in Greencastle can learn more about the sidewalks and curbs in front of their homes at a public meeting at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 4 at Borough Hall.

According to Mayor Frank Mowen, property owners will have to foot the bill to repair sidewalks in front of their homes.

They can either pay the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation to do the work for them or hire a private contractor to do it according to PennDOT specifications, Mowen said.

PennDOT officials estimate the cost at $15 per linear foot for curbing and $30 per square yard for sidewalks.

Minstrel practice slated for Sunday

GREENCASTLE, Pa. - Actors, dancers, singers and comics seeking a shot at stardom can turn out for auditions and practice at 1:30 p.m. Sunday at the Rescue Hose Co. No. 1 fire house on South Carlisle Street in Greencastle for the 63rd minstrel show sponsored by the fire department.

The show runs March 12-14 in the Greencastle-Antrim High School auditorium, said Greg Hoover, chairman of the committee putting on the minstrel. Hoover is also directing the show and will be its interlocutor.

He said about 40 people usually take part, including Greencastle-area residents, those with ties to the community and minstrel enthusiasts.

The show usually nets about $2,000 for the fire department coffers. It began in 1929, skipped a year during World War II and a few years in the late 1950s and early 1960s, then ran continually since 1963. Hoover said.
