YorIT, a York County Community Foundation has a Social Venture Fund with $20,000 and is looking for a person or persons with “new, creative, out-of-the-box ideas that can attract retailers and restaurants to the area as well as get more people to come downtown” to give it to.
I seriously think I should move to York! I am continually amazed at the level of cooperation between the city, county and private sector. How refreshing to see that suburbanites get that York City is the heart of York County and are trying to do all in their power to revitalize it!
Around here, it’s the opposite. Most suburbanites do not seem to care if places like Philadelphia, Norristown and Pottstown fail. Many avoid coming into these places at all costs. Very sad.
The Philadelphia Eagles gutted out a win yesterday over the rival New York Giants in the Meadowlands, coming from behind 24-3 at halftime to beat the Giants 38-31. The Eagles scored 28 points in the fourth quarter. The Eagles are now 10-4 for the season and lead the NFC East!
By comparison, former Eagle QB Donovan McNabb and his Redskins are 5 – 9 which is probably where the Eagles would be this season had he not been traded!
