Linglestown Gazette taking indefinite break

This experiment in publishing local news and community information on the Internet unfortunately has come to an end, at least for now. It recently has become apparent that all the pieces needed to start a media business are not in place and being a one-man operation is not sustainable over the long haul.

Special thanks go out to my wife, Barb, for giving me the time and space to work on this project, Davis Shaver for providing technical assistance on a volunteer basis, Thad D’Ambrosia for helping stage events sponsored by Citizens for CD Schools and the morning gang at St new balance trainers sale. Thomas Roasters for keeping me on the straight and narrow.

And, of course, thanks to all readers and those of you who have provided encouragement and feedback over the years.

I have not ruled out restarting the Gazette at some point because, in my opinion, Linglestown, Lower Paxton Township and nearby communities need a news source that’s totally focused on the area.

    Bill, many people overt the years have looked forward to visiting your website and obtaining outstanding news and event information. Such an undertaking requires more than one person. However, there are costs involved and of course the most valuable resource – your time and efforts.

    Years ago, when I started, I wanted to create a one-stop shop for news and event information, along with a venue to express local opinions. Creating promotional concepts, coordinating technology in an effort to give you what you need, and allowing the website concept to provide incentive to its creator are very lofty goals.

    Congratulations on your success with the site and good luck with your future endeavors. As for me, I’m beginning a new adventure of my own next month when I move to Tokyo, Japan for a few years. Best wishes. -Rob
