Lines Drawn On Opinion About New Power Line
A small coalition of Conoy Township residents has temporarily abandoned the area’s reputation as a sleepy, rural community to join the mounting battle over a cross-state power line project.
Around 30 landowners met with officials at the Bainbridge firehouse on Wed., June 24 to seek more information about the controversial high voltage line, which is slated to run through numerous local properties. Among the residents’ primary concerns: decreased property values caused by unsightly support towers and the possible health risks associated with living too closely to power lines.

You find them in your yard – a stray, wispy maple tree seedling – and you probably run the lawn mower over the unwanted young trees-to-be.

A little rain – actually, a lot of rain – did not stop the nonprofit group Youth 10 X’s Better from giving free bicycles to local children at its annual Wheel-A-Thon and Family Day on Saturday, June 27 in Middletown.
The bikes were moved to the indoor pavilion at Hoffer Park, where the giveaway put smiles on the dry faces of a number of kids.
More than 100 bicycles were collected from donations and awarded to kids in grades 3 through 12 who showed up for the giveaway with a parent or guardian. Kids had to show their school report card and prove they did not earn any Ds or Fs to get a bike, according to the Rev. James Lyles, the head of Youth 10 X’s Better.
The event drew a large crowd that also enjoyed pizza and hot dogs. A bicycle repairman, Middletown Volunteer Fire Department volunteers and police from the Middletown and Royalton police forces also greeted guests and weathered the rain.
