  1. Thanks for posting these dates Roy. The fact is, if you are among the unfortunate that have a Locust “Hylton Tree” you are likely to collect 20 + giant contractor size bags of leaves long before Oct. 18th. (from just ONE tree). In which case, you are then stuck with mountains of bags accumulating in the alley lending to the overall unkempt look of the neighborhood, a neighborhood that Hylton has forgotten but for whom “walkable neighborhood schools” are so important. That always makes me chuckle because “walkable” is not an adjective that sums up the experience of the sidewalks that a kid would use to get to a neighborhood school. How about tripable and fallable or just DANGEROUS period.

    If the sidewalks don’t get ’em then falling plaster from the ceilings will.

  2. Haha Olive, you are so right. Trying to walk on sidewalks around here can be tricky because of all the damage from Mr. Hyton’s use of inappropriate curb trees. I guess you know first hand about that after falling!

    There are pictures from King Street on here to illustrate what we are talking about if you are not familiar with the sidewalk problems in Pottstown.
