EDITORIAL: Teens can be so moody

Thumbs down: To the Hanover-area eaglet who apparently pulled the plug on the state Game Commission's wildly popular Internet eagle cam.

People around the world have tuned in since a pair of eggs hatched in late March, but no one will witness the next step in the eaglets' adolescence: their first flight from the nest.

Sometime Monday morning, the high-definition live-streaming camera that's given people a window into raptor-rearing was tilted downward, so it's no longer displaying the interior of the massive nest near Codorus State Park.

Spokesman Travis Lau said the Game Commission assumes one of the eaglets is to blame – and it wouldn't be the first time they were camera shy.

In April, one of them squirted feces on the camera lens, which hampered eaglet-watching for weeks, Lau said.

We guess it really is hard growing up in the limelight.

Thumbs up: The list of York County heroin users who owe their lives to Narcan continues to grow.

West York Police last weekend saved the lives of two more people by by giving them the heroin overdose antidote now carried by almost every police department in York County.

That brings the York County total of confirmed saves to 18, according to Kyle King, spokesman for the district attorney's office.

King's office distributes the drug free to area police departments as part of a countywide initiative to combat a national opioid epidemic that's taken hold here.

Thumbs up: Springettsbury Township, you're in for a treat.

Food trucks, the on-the-go eateries that have proved incredibly popular in neighboring York City, will take over Springettsbury Park as part of a new, weekly event that kicks off on Friday.

Dubbed Food Truck Fridays, to be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., will feature food trucks and vendors in the paved parking lot of the park near the intersection of Mount Zion and Whiteford roads, according to the township.

"It should be a nice experience," said Abby Gibb, the township's events/public relations/Grants coordinator. "We're received a lot of nice feedback so far."
