tips: Your car is a target! - 07/20/16 01:51 AM
Car break-ins have been occurring in Haines Acres, Fayfield, and Yorkshire.  This post to inform you that your vehicle and personal belongings are in jeopardy! The criminals have already hit 40-50 vehicles and do not show signs of slowing down as more cars were burglarized this week.
What are the police doing about this?
I called the Springettsbury Police Department and spoke with Sergeant Wilbur.  Sergeant Wilbur informed me that the department has additional cruisers patrolling the area over night and that they have more cops in plain clothes on foot in hopes of apprehending the assailants.  They have some

tips: What's in the water? - 07/13/16 01:50 AM

As I was paying my water bill, I decided to read over the York Water Companies water quality report.   It was reassuring that the reports that the water company provided were very detailed and gave accurate readings for various chemicals that are found in the water and how they treat the water to remove the contaminates.  It also gives us a look at the actual contamination levels for each of these chemicals.  The report is analyzed down to parts per million or PPM on the report.
 
I have added a link to the York Water Company's Annual Drinking Water Report for you to review.  I hope you find the … (1 comments)

tips: What is the 4th of July? - 07/01/16 01:33 PM
Independence Day or more commonly known as the 4th of July celebrates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence back on July 4th, 1776.  This is when the Continental Congress declaring that the 13 colonies would no longer answer to British rule.  The colonies actually agreed to this on the 2nd of July but the Declaration was not finished and signed until the 4th, some early signers of the Declaration of Independence believe that we should have used the 2nd and not the 4th as the actual date of acknowledgment.
 
For me this holiday seems to get lost in the fireworks, barbecue and back yard parties.  We have some … (5 comments)

Hey there fellow Penn Waste customers, I just wanted to remind you that our trash is going to be picked up a day late next week.  I went on the Penn Waste site because I was looking for an update on when the new recycling bins will be delivered.  I did not see anything that gave an answer to my question but I did see that our trash pick up will be delayed by a full day.  Click here for a link to Penn Waste for additional details on trash removal in your township.

tips: Educate your buyers - 06/09/16 12:41 PM
Many first time buyers are not aware of all the things that they are about to face when buying a home, so it's good to prepare them for the road ahead.  Most of the time they have no clue about the gauntlet they are going to run while seeking a mortgage or the fact that they need to plan for 2 days off so they can attend the home inspection and settlement. Maybe more importantly how to stay qualified by not going out to shop for new furniture once they ratify a contract.
 
So how can you get your buyers ready for the road ahead?  I prefer … (1 comments)

tips: HERE IT COMES! - 06/08/16 12:53 AM

Every year we get hit with a few major storms and it seems that at the last minute everyone is running to the store to pick up some basic essentials to ride out a few days without power.  I go to the store just to take pictures that I share with my friends, we laugh because the shelves where the bottled water was are all empty, the paper goods such as plates, napkins, and toilet paper have vanished.  It seems that nobody is planning for the inevitable hurricane, or tropical storms that we get EVERY YEAR.  The day before the storm people … (8 comments)

Nothing drives me crazier than the constant request to play games on Facebook.  I barely have time to get all the things done that I need to do no less the things I want to do and then you have these game notifications in my feed.  Friends, if I wanted to play games I would seek them out myself, please stop sending me requests sp that you can get more points or extra lives etc.
