Thumbs up: To all who represented York County at the 97th Pennsylvania Farm Show, which wrapped up Saturday in Harrisburg.

And congratulations to those who won awards in their category, including Seven Valleys resident Elizabeth Pokrivka, who received a fifth-place ribbon in the show's first-ever fudge competition.

She and her mother Shelley Pokrivka regularly enter their baked goodies at the Farm Show and county fairs. But this was the first time Shelley ever beat her mother in a competition.

Taught her everything she knows, we're sure.

Thumbs up: Good move on the part of the York County Prison Board, which decided to "take a breather" before pushing for another multi-million dollar project at the Concord Road facility.

Constables and other law enforcement officers -- including those with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement -- are getting frustrated with the prison's crowded admissions area, which leads to delays and wasted time.

Unfortunately, the estimated fix to the problem is a $6 million to $7 million renovation, which the board last month voted to ask the county commissioners to consider.

We believe this is a problem that will need to be addressed, but the timing couldn't be much worse.

York County is just now wrapping up a nearly $7 million prison work release housing project, other projects are already vying for funding. Among those are a $5 million to $10 million project to finish the fifth floor of the York County Judicial Center and proposals to address lack of space in York County Archives.


Prison board members apparently realize this now, and last week they voted unanimously to table the proposal.

Sheriff Richard Keuerleber, who serves on the board, said it makes sense to hold off on the project and "take a breather to look at alternatives."

Hopefully, the board can find a temporary solution to ease the overcrowding until the county can afford the permanent one.
