Only in York County

A reader response and blasts from the past

Many thanks to my friend and fellow YDR staffer Sue, who commented on my recent question about why we call it “The Brogue.”

Sue says: My guess is that people in York just love certain articles (unlike their hatred of “to be” constructions). It’s the only explanation for why a certain route stretching from Manchester Township all the way to Fairview Township is called “The Bull Road”.

Well, how fortunate that Sue brings this up, because I blogged on these exact topics. Here, in case you missed them, are posts from last July about hitting “the” road and from last October about the “to be” or not “to be” debate.
