It takes a whole community

I would like to thank the Harrison Township commissioners, especially Gary Lilly (2nd Ward), for the long, hard and unseen hours he put in for the demolition of many dilapidated homes.

All the countless improvements that have been made in Harrison Township in the past three years cannot go unseen.

I also would like to welcome the new Harrison Township Police officers to our township. Harrison Police, you all have gone above and beyond the call of duty with your around-the-clock coverage protecting our streets and enforcing justice.

Citizens Hose, Hilltop Hose and Harrison Hills fire companies: I thank you for your many volunteer hours that go into a community.

There is great brotherhood that goes with being a volunteer firefighter.

Citizens Hose Ambulance Company: I thank you for transporting the sick and injured and for providing around-the-clock emergency medical treatment for our township. You men and women are angels just waiting at base to help when needed. Your kindness, love and understanding in time of need is greatly appreciated.

A good deed never goes unseen. Together, we all can make a difference.

Please take care of each other and have a safe and happy new year.

God bless.

Christy Neal (Erb)


TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
