Beautiful .98 acre building lot in Lake View Estates in Howard, PA. The site is situated on a quiet cul-de-sac with views of the surrounding mountains and the lake in the distance. Public utilities are available on site.
Bring your own builder and blueprints and think about the potential for a lower level walkout when designing your dream home.
Walking distance to the new State Game Land 323 that provides terrific hunting and the lake offers fishing and boating (unlimited horsepower). The location provides an easy commute to State College and Penn State University and your kids will attend the Bald Eagle School District.
Use our builder and save money on the purchase of the home and lot as a combination.

Sometimes in life you just need to face your demons. As many of you know, I'm a runner and love to take off and run when I get the chance. Recently, I found myself in Pensacola, Florida and I was challenged to return to University of West Florida for a late afternoon run on a recent Saturday. Several years ago I stared into the late afternoon shadows of the same running path and took off for an easy run. I found myself in the forest just weeks after the destruction that Ivan wrought on the area (he was a hurricane). To make a long story very short, the woods were torn apart with shattered tree's but I pushed on until I was completely lost, straddling an oozing stream, just as darkness gripped the trail. Lost like I never imagined possible, I cut the run short and managed to shred my legs and arms on the flora and fauna as I struggled to find my way out of the damp gator-infested woodland. As a student many years before, I remember seeing many a ten foot alligator in this area.
I finally made it out of the swamp and cut the run short but it left a bad taste in my mouth. So, there I was heading back to the swamp and much to my suprise I was greeted by the sign that you can read above. Now I was faced with a decision. Push on through the fear and ignore the sign or just turn around and find the running track to circle like a frustrated hamster.
I did push past the fear and had a great run, gators and poisonous snakes not withstanding. It just proves that you can return and face your demons.

Driving back from state football playoff game I stopped to top off the tank and much to my surprise, I found regular unleaded at $1.86.90 per gallon. So, in our digital world I grabbed the camera and snapped a photo in the inky cold night just to prove to myself that prices have retreated from the $4.29 a gallon of a few months ago.
The gas price was the good news. The bad news was our team lost the game but there is always next year.
