PCN cameras shoot video at the Dancing Gnome along Main Street in Sharpsburg for a show highlighting the borough's business district.

A television show highlighting the resurgence of Sharpsburg will air at 7:30 p.m. tonight on PCN, the Pennsylvania Cable Network.

It is Channel 21 for residents who subscribe to Verizon.

“We are very excited for this,” Manager Bill Rossey said.

The borough will be highlighted in the half-hour show called “Exploring PA Boroughs.” Earlier this summer, camera crews canvassed Main Street to interview some of the business owners and residents who have helped to spearhead community revitalization.

Viewers will recognize shots of the municipal building, library and fishing pier, along with several new and old businesses.

Sharpsburg was chosen among 12 boroughs to be featured during the first year of the show.

Pennsylvania State Association of Boroughs spokeswoman Leslie Suhr said the show chose neighborhoods of varying sizes and economic backgrounds. Sharpsburg was selected for its vibrant Main Street, she said.

“Sharpsburg has really turned around over the last several years, and this is just a sign that we are moving forward,” Rossey said.

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.
