I am posting this message in hopes that the thieves that stole several items from my garage sale during Good Ol Days see this message. A older gentleman driving a red pickup truck with a cap pulled up to the end of the driveway, got out of his truck, grabbed an old vintage fishing rod and tackle box, got in his truck and took off. The same afternoon several ladies arrived and one asked to borrow a pair of tweezers. Being the Christian I am, I went into the house to get her a pair of tweezers and when I came back out to the garage several brand new candles were taken and the woman were gone. The very next day, a lady and man arrived and there were several others here as well. I was speaking to one of the men that was here and while talking a lady walks up to a table that had antiques on it and took a vintage Norman Rockwell Plate and quickly walked to her car with the gentleman and took off. I realized soon after they took off that the plate was missing.

It is so very sad that we live in a community that has multiple people who steal from others. NOTHING is safe anymore. May God have mercy on the folks who decided to steal something that didn't belong to them. Rotten rotten people. So very sad. I will never have another garage sale ever again. In the end, the thieves will have to answer to the Man above.

/m16499 Yeah, it was sometimes fun, always interesting, and sometimes aggravating. And yours was a position although different than mine, also similar in varying ways. The biggest mistake public "officials" often make is making false assumptions or following personal agendas. Or in some cases both, using one to reinforce the other.

Lekolight - You would know about "secrecy"! But please, don't assume to know anything about how the board functions now, or how anyone else functions in this position. I know you like to respond with a thesis on this stuff but the rhetoric says the same.
HArry C- I haven't heard but I don't expect to. After all, his goal is to be a "Gadfly" LOL! He can't fill the position but if he leaves, he can't hassle the employees he's hell bent to have resign or fired. (as if) He also can't look at the $$ to try and decide who is "stealing" it. Well, that's not true. He can do his Right to Know requests. No doubt he's loving this publicity.

Cap - No one would be affected if legitimate issues are discussed... I really would hate to think that Lekolight only was interested if things were "self serving". I'm not really believing that myself....

Groucho - I think Sandy might have your answer or better yet, the Historical Society. I don't know and haven't heard. Night folks!

Mom - Did Paul respond to the request to resign yet?

Cap - I agree. Paul seemed to be wrong more than right. He was right about the Sunshine law and council but that was only after he was wrong about it. :)

/m16496 There's a difference between bringing up legit issues which have merit and reason and those which do not. Provably so. And to then contend, after being proven wrong, that the professionals, who provided the proof of being wrong, are lying incompetents is delusional, in my opinion.

Major Mom,

Thanks, LOL on Gadfly. As I recall there was a lady who used to post here and Ben Ricci I believe, nicknamed her Gadfly. Perhaps Paul borrowed that name. :)

Harry C. - In times gone by he told the Gettysburg Times I believe it was that he existed to be a "Gadfly". That's the insect that hangs around a horse and aggravates it all the time. It probably accomplishes nothing. Just irritates for the sake of irritating. Most of us consider that to be the definition of a Toddler. (LOL)

What is Paul's agenda? It has never been clear to me. :)

Lekolight - I will add, he is FAR from a man of the people. He has an agenda and he has been trying to work on it in my humble opinion. He knows we can't remove him so we have to ask him to resign. 'Nuf said.

As far as the members not forthcoming with Paul, that's a laugh! You act as if there's some "secret" stuff going on. That's almost insulting. I'll leave it at that.

Lekolight - Not anymore. It was changed along with State updates to codes in 2014. Its too bad too because it would stop the abuse.

Harry C - Actually I think the figure was 17 of 32 meetings, not that he cares. If he has health issues, he should resign. This is the 3rd or 4th time for this. He needs to stop. Plus, people need to understand the game and stop voting for him. Just my opinion.......

Littlestown Borough Council unanimously called for the resignation of one of its members Tuesday night.
"There's an issue with one of our missing members," council Vice President James Long said, referring to Paul Sharpless.
Sharpless, who has served on council since January 2016, was not present.
The issue, Long said, is one of "unattendance" at council meetings.
"He's missed 15 of our last 32 meetings. This isn't fair to his constituents in Ward 1," Long said.
Other council members agreed with Long, who asked them too sign a letter to Sharpless suggesting he resign his seat on council.
"It's morally and ethically wrong for him to miss so many meetings," council member Charlene Westcott said. "He's not fit for office on moral grounds."
Councilwoman Betty Bucher agreed.
"He's not representing the people who elected him," said Bucher.
Council President Ronald Baird reminded they can ask Sharpless to resign, but can't force him to do so.
"You can't make decisions for the community if you're not here representing your community," Baird said. "But there's actually nothing else we can do. This letter is just a courteous request for him to resign."
All members signed the letter to be presented to Sharpless.

Harry C. Most good vendors book a year in advance. Someone needs to go to every flea market they can locate and hand out papers inviting them to come in. Maybe even give a nice discount for first time vendors. Maybe mailing lists could be requested from other flea markets. "If you build it, they will come". Customers want nice things to buy and nice crafts. If they come and find nice shopping they will come back. Same for vendors, give them customers and they will be happy and book for the following year.

Nice turn out for the Good Old days. I do wish more vendors could be attracted to Crouse Park. Seems the flea market type vendors are very few and crafts and people selling new stuff have grown
