Crew renovates police station
Quarryville's police chief has a new office.
It's a lot smaller than the old one, and doesn't have the blue sailboat wallpaper boarder decor of its predecessor.
The chief's former office, 18 feet wide by 20 feet long, is the largest room in borough hall aside from council's meeting chamber. Now repainted, it's being turned into the police department's new squad room.
Retirement won't bore Fran Metzler
He has plans, Fran Metzler said last week.
He will be taking more time to go to the mountain camp he shares with four other men.

This past winter's mild weather gave Providence Township's road crew time to create benches for walkers and bike riders who use the Low Grade Rail Trail through the municipality.
Build a better world will be the theme for this summer's reading program, said Randi Kennedy, the youth services coordinator for the Quarryville Library.
"We will have a city silhouette on a large sheet of paper and the kids can fill it in with the stickers they win in the program," she said. Each child who finishes the program will get a sheet of stickers.
