Ever since 1963, Funk's Farm Market, on South Duke Street, Millersville, PA, has been a landmark for Lancaster County locals. Funk's Farm was founded 135 years ago in 1873 by Amos G. Funk.  Forty-five years ago the farm market was established.  Every spring a wonderful selection of annual and perennial flowers are available to beautify local gardens.                         There is also a well-stocked garden supply area, with gardening equipment, landscaping decorations, fertilizers and weed control products.                                        Late in the summer, the Butterfly House will be open behind the market.  Shrubs are available in the back as well, including butterfly bushes that will attract many butterflies. In the farm market itself, locally grown strawberries are on dis...

As I drove through Millersville, PA this morning, traffic was blocked on North George Street, the main thoroughfare past the University.  There were several Millersville University police cars, a policewoman directing traffic, and what looked like a TV news crew truck. At first I thought it must have been another vising politician.  With the Pennsylvania presidential primary scheduled for April 22, Hillary had been here last week with a large police entourage, and Senator Obama was in Lancaster earlier this week. It turned out that the University was under lockdown for 90 minutes.  A student had reported to police that he was afraid of another student.  He apparently believed that the other student had a gun and was a threat to the student body.  With recent shootings at other universit...

If you're planning on travelling through or around Lancaster County PA, specifically anywhere near Millersville Boro, you might want to heed some traffic updates on the radio before you get into your car on Tuesday, March 18th.Hillary Clinton will be making a stop while campaining in Pennsylvania.  She's set to arrive in Millersville at 7pm.  I believe that the Pucillo gym doors will open at 5pm, and they are expecting about 3,000 people.  Hillary's people said confirmation won't come until it's closer to the time (how much closer than the day before??).  But, this is what the University officials are saying.  It would be nice if they were told for sure, so that they could prepare!  I will be showing homes not too far from Millersville on Tuesday, but luckily our showings will be earlie...

The Millersville, PA Parade It's Saturday, October 13 - the day of the Millersville, PA Parade!  I arrive early at 9:00 AM to get a good vantage point from which to view the parade.  The Millersville University parking lots are already full, and Herr Avenue, Landis Avenue, and George Street have been blocked off.  Crowds of Millersville residents and Millersville University students are already solidly lined up on both sides of the street from the Student Memorial Center all the way George Street as far as the eye can see. Millersville University Television, MUTV, is set up near the Student Memorial Center to record the event.                                                        Kelly West and Dave Russell of WARM 103.3 Radio are the emcees of the event.  The parade starts on Herr Ave...
