Yeah, that would definitely be the end result.

Some people pronounce Erie as Airy, so we could at least Change the name to Aries...better yet! Nuevo Aires! Take that Brazil!

LOL!

Oh, I'd bet the average age of the garden club is way older than 70.

I get what you guys are saying about consolidation and its benefits, but it doesn't matter how wonderfully anyone paints the prospects of a unified government -- Lawrence Park, at least, isn't there yet.

Erie, for me, without a doubt. Just curious, but why isn't Johnstown on the list?
