This tower is familiar to many in South Central Pennsylvania. Still, when presented with the question about whether you can locate it, bet it will give many of you pause. (If you are stumped, its location is below.) What is clear is that the photographer is York countian Dianne Bowders, whose well-crafted work often appears in yorktownsquare.com posts. Also of interest: York County’s Maytag fleet. Can you locate where this was taken?

More interesting stuff from all over … .

Dallastown, as we know, is one of the nicest small towns in York County.

So it came as a surprise one day about a month ago when five of ydr.com’s 10 most-viewed stories had links to Dallastown, not all topics the town’s mayor would seek. Bad things, indeed, can happen to good towns … .

Here were the headlines:

– Many come to coach’s defense after Dallastown wrestler addresses…
– Dallastown community to use dogs’ DNA to track neighborhood poop
– Marshals arrest Dallastown man suspected in Berks County carjacking
– Dallastown man sentenced for texting penis picture to girl
– Dallastown wrestler takes a stand on bullying, hazing

Codorus Street gathering

The Codorus Street Reunion is a coming together of families, many with Bamberg, S.C., roots. That reunion is taking place this weekend as this ydr.com story indicates: Codorus Street residents trying to preserve history of area.

Info about the clock tower from above: The bell tower looms over the National Watch & Clock Museum, across the Susquehanna from Wrightsville in Columbia. Dianne wrote on ydr.com’s Your Photos site: ‘The Museum entrance is marked by the Memorial Bell Tower, dedicated in 1993.’
