In our current economic situation, it's not just houses that are falling into foreclosure. I have written before about shopping centers and other commercial locations that are being foreclosed but this is a first for me. The Gettysburg, Pennsylvania Country Club, located in a very historic area, is being sold at sheriff's sale on January 9, 2009. The club has been unable to attract enough new membership to pay off a $2.9 million loan for renovations completed two years ago and actually closed it's doors in May 2008. The story from the Carlisle Sentinel: "The 60-year-old Gettysburg Country Club is slated to be sold at a sheriff's sale next month after a rescue of the troubled organization failed.Susquehanna Banks, which foreclosed on the property, is seeking a minimum of $2.9 million whe...

The front page of the Gettysburg times today read that Gettysburg Homeowners would face 2,500 to 10,000 dollar sidewalk repair bills in order to comply with the ADA. The streets listed as first priority are the following. Pape Alley, Baltimore St, W. Middle St, Chambersburg St, Middle St, Washington St, High St, and Breckenridge St.  A list of contractors will be supplied by the Gettysburg Borough.   According to Borough Code.  The owner will have 30 days to comply.  Meaning that there must be some sign of progress at the end of the 30 day period. The Borough is aware that many of the people in the town are on fixed budget and suggest that people should start saving.  I am sure many of you know that Gettysburg is a Historic town.  There are two people that are disabled activists that ha...

You've seen, many times I'm sure, celebrations where Kings, Queens, Brides, and other special honorees are paraded through the public arena preceded by cute little very young ladies strewing rose petals along the path ahead of them as typically appropriate beautiful music accompanies and commemorates the event...   And so, along life's journeys, we are fortunate enough to witness some epiphanial events in our own lives...perhaps not so formal, perhaps not so grandiose, perhaps not so regalitarian...yet nevertheless memorable and significant in the real scheme of things...   Sunday and Monday were days when Gil, my son in law office manager and I attended Old Republic Title Insurance Company's annual Pennsylvania agency seminar...it was held in Gettysburg, Pa...the infamous Civil War bat...
