Tend to this marker

Sally Kalson's April 3 article on the 12 recently "green-lighted" Pennsylvania historical markers, in particular a frivolous one concerning an ice cream product from Latrobe ("Historical Marker Is a Cherry Atop Latrobe's Claim as Birthplace of Banana Split"), reminds me to remind someone about an existing marker that is somewhat less frivolous.

I'm talking about the one on Bower Hill in Scott on Kane Boulevard, which commemorates the Hamiltonianly dubbed "Whiskey Rebellion." As township residents can attest, the mast of this marker is bent at a hideous angle and has been for years.

So my humble suggestion would be that a local counterpart to the "assistant to the Latrobe city manager in community engagement and sustainability" looks into maintaining a marker that is already in existence and either unbends it or removes it.

If either of those events occurs, I shall personally "green-light" a banana split for that worthy public servant!
