Our View | Thumbs up, thumbs down for Friday

September 20, 2013 

Thumbs up: To Bart Grande, of Pennsylvania Furnace, who purchased and is refurbishing the Jarcy’s Motel site along U.S. Route 220 in Worth Township. Grande plans to develop the site, which has been in disrepair for years, into cabins and hostel-style lodging.

Thumbs up: To volunteers in the Philipsburg area who are raising money to spruce up a children’s area on 13th Street. The group must generate $20,000 to match a $60,000 state grant, and will hold a fundraiser dinner Sept. 26 at Reliance Fire Company.

Thumbs up: To all of the winners at this year’s Centre County Grange Encampment and Fair. We published a complete list Thursday, in conjunction with the fair committee. Categories included animals, produce, baked goods and others.

Centre Daily Times is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
