Erdman details
journey and goals

Throughout the late summer and this fall, Millersburg teenager Eric Erdman has been on the minds of many Sentinel-area residents.

That said, the community has done more than just think about him.

Since it became known that the Millersburg Area High School football player is fighting a rare form of brain cancer, various fund raisers have been held to aid the young man and his family on their journey through treatment and recovery.

The Butcher
By Shirley Brosius, Contributing Writer

A video created to document the daily activities of a Hebe butcher shop turned out to be a pictorial eulogy to the butcher: R. Lee Schwalm.

Ryan Schwalm, now of Seattle, shot the footage thinking he might someday create a video about his grandfather’s butcher shop as a gift to his father, David Schwalm of Halifax Twp.

Cleanup of the Shippen Dam Run
oil spill continues

MILLERSBURG • As of press time, clean up efforts were continuing following an accidental discharge of oil into a Susquehanna River tributary early last week.

There is no indication that oil has moved from Shippen Run into the river, but booms have been put in place to ensure that doesn’t happen, according to the state Department of Environmental Protection.

Restroom policy reaches local area

Compiled By. Duane Good


As 2016 enters its final months, Americans remain divided over a question that has repeatedly made the news during much of the year:


Should people who consider themselves transgender be required to use the restroom of the gender on their birth certificate? Or should they be permitted to use the facility of the gender with which they say they now identify?


That question has reached the Sentinel’s coverage area, where the Upper Dauphin Area School District has been asked to formulate a policy on the issue. That question reportedly came from district parents in the wake of an incident that involved a transgender student, according to published reports.
