Waynesboro's National Night Out a success

To the editor:

The Waynesboro Police Department would like to thank everyone who contributed to our National Night Out Event on Tuesday, Aug. 3, 2010.

The event was held for the first time in many years and the first time ever at Memorial Park. A special thank you to the community (adults and children) who came out that evening to participate in our activities. The event was a great success and exceeded our expectations by far.

The event would not have been possible without the support of local individuals and businesses. We were able to provide Antietam Dairy ice cream and bottled water because of generous donations from the Eagles Club, the American Legion, the Quincy Township Supervisors, Target, Rutters and Mayor Richard Starliper. A big thank you also goes to the Waynesboro Fire Department for providing and grilling the hotdogs.


We appreciate the support of the Waynesboro Fire Department, the Waynesboro Ambulance Squad, the Mont Alto Fire Department and Mont Alto Ambulance Squad for bringing their equipment out for the emergency vehicle display.

Thank you to the following individuals and agencies for your participation: State Sen. Rich Alloway, Franklin County Commissioner Bob Thomas, Caitlin Adolini, Communities That Care, Verstandig Broadcasting, local media, Waynesboro Fire Police, American Red Cross, Franklin/Fulton Drug & Alcohol, Community Coalition for the Prevention of Drug and Alcohol Abuse, Waynesboro Area Chamber of Commerce, Magisterial District Judge Pentz's office (Larry, Heather and Tammy) and last but not least, our very own Cpl. Shindledecker and his K9 partner Sarge, Officer Storey, Officer L. Kauffman, Officer Deeds, Cpl. Wagaman, Officer Williams and Det. Adolini.

We look forward to working with all of you again at next year's event scheduled for Tuesday, Aug. 2, 2011. See you there!

Why do people keep voting for Bartlett?

To the editor:

Perhaps some of your enlightened readers can explain why people in this area, most of whom work for a living and live almost literally from hand to mouth, vote in such large numbers for a U.S. Representative who is pro-rich and anti-poor. I refer of course to U.S. Rep. Roscoe Bartlett.

Do you suppose there is something in the air or water that prevents the public here from identifying with their own interests and causes them to identify with the enemy?
