We got a note from the students over at Central York High School that just made my day Friday.
As you recall, wle did a NewsVroom presentation for two journalism classes a couple weeks ago.

So, last night was super fun.
I joined co-workers Brittany Wilson and Sarah Chain to kickoff the NewsVroom’s yearlong initiative of visiting York County libraries.

Here’s how the day went down: Continue reading

Some delicious pie I consumed last week.
After visiting a diner in northern York County, I got an email from a reader.
“You should visit our close knit neighborhood in the farm country of Northern York Country,” it said.
Jim Dickey is having a pie party Friday night at his home on Blue Hill School Road. And I’m invited.
What’s a pie party, you ask?
It’s a community gathering in the rural farmlands — one with lots of pies, obviously. Continue reading
