It’s a nice drive to Brogue (I get paid mileage)

Police Chief Tom Gross has voiced his displeasure that District Justice John Fishel’s courtroom could be moved to Brogue.

At the York Area Regional Police Commission meeting Jan. 12, Gross commented that people in Dallastown and Red Lion may have to take the scenic drive through the countryside to Chanceford Township instead of the quick trip to Cape Horn Road just north of Red Lion.

As for crime victims, Gross said, “They’ve already been victimized once. Why victimize them again by making them drive to Brogue?”

Attention residents of Brogue: The chief was laughing when he said that and explained he was concerned about transportation costs and travel time. I am sure he has nothing against the town of Brogue or its residents.

According to the York County Office of Court Administration, a move by Fishel to Brogue would be temporary and only because of an existing rental lease on the Brogue office.

    I assume he is referring to the lease on DJ Edie’s space? It’s a nice space and a pretty drive. And guess what? They even have a Rutters next door so the clients can grab a coffee before they go in. Imagine that, a Rutters in Brogue. What is this world coming to?
