EDITORIAL: Nice work, Action Jackson

York Dispatch

Thumbs up: To Brett Jackson, who is credited with stopping an attempted sexual assault in York City Friday night, then chasing the alleged attacker into police custody.

Jackson was passing by the victim's apartment when he heard the attack and rushed to the woman's aid. The suspect — identified as Michael Tyrik Moye, 26, of 2515 N. George St. — fled, with Jackson in pursuit.

He chased Moye to the Waterway Bar & Grill on West Philadelphia Street, where bouncers stopped Moye and held him until police arrived, according to charging documents.

Thumbs up: To Manchester Township's Laugerman's Harley-Davidson, after nice, long ride.

The dealership at 100 Arsenal Road closed earlier this month after 66 years, during which three generations of the Laugerman family ran it.

The business is now owned by lifelong York residents Sue Renoll and Clint Sheffer, siblings who renamed the dealership 1st Capital Harley-Davidson.

Thumbs up: The Red Land Little League team is off to a dominating start as it chases the Little League World Series championship in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

Red Land's record is now 18-0, and the players have outscored its opponents 268-21.

Thumbs up: To York College, for breathing new life into a York City landmark.

The college announced last week it's moving its Center for Community Engagement into the former Lafayette Club building at 59 E. Market St.

The club was an exclusive social gathering and networking organization that first opened in 1898. The building, which was given to York College, now will serve as a hub to connect future potential business leaders with the city.

"It's very important for us to be (downtown), right in the midst of all the good things going on," said Dominic DelliCarpini, the York College professor who was recently named dean of the Center for Community Engagement.
