Thumbs up, Thumbs down - April 30

April 28, 2011

Thumbs up

To the National Park Service, which next spring will provide boat rides in Williamsport and at other sites along the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal. The 30-foot launch boats, one of which was tested this week at Cushwa Basin, will give people another opportunity to experience what life was like along the canal in the late 1800s and early 1900s.

 

Thumbs up

To the United Church of Christ Church of the Apostles in Waynesboro, Pa., which is working to grow a community garden. The church is creating plots that are 10 feet by 10 feet and 20 feet by 20 feet. There is no cost to use a plot for the season, and space is available to anyone who asks.



Thumbs up

To Shepherd University, which is using techology to its advantage in the student recruitment process. A new admissions iPad application system should be available for release in June, pending approval from the Apple app store, according to Director of Admissions Randall Friend.
