New temporary speed bump installed on Gettysburg Street becomes the talk of the town.
Speed bumps in borough draw swift reaction
The temporary installation of two speed bumps has brought more excitement to the residents of Gettysburg Street than they’ve had in a long time.
“I love it,” Gettysburg Street resident Dave Thompson said. “People that come and go through town here don’t know how to do 20 to 25 miles per hour. It’s unbelievable, I mean, about a week ago the cops were really watching this stop sign at Second and Gettysburg and, within about a half an hour, they got six people.”
The first speed bump was installed more than a week ago close to Second Street, and the second bump was put in on June 11, just past Beaver Street.
The installation decision was made by popular demand of the citizens living on the street, Dillsburg Borough Councilman Isaac Tucker said. The borough decided to act, leaving most people who live on the street very “excited,” he said.

DYB crowns Minors, Hybrid champs
That's what Giant Foods can call itself after winning Dillsburg Youth Baseball's Minors Division championship last weekend. It's tough to go unbeaten over the course of a baseball season, but Giant accomplished just that after wrapping up the DYB postseason with a 7-0 victory over Keystone Fieldhouse in the semifinals and an 8-2 victory over Colgan & Associates in the title game.
Players on MikeStrayer's Giant squad include Colton Strayer, Cole Wagner, Garrett Mainhart, Eric Sims, Brady Anderson, Gavin Pandya, Avery Ewer, Nathan Coons, Alan Stremmel, Randyn Rupp and Conner Brussese.
