Police to conduct DUI checkpoint

The Pennsylvania State Police will be conducting a sobriety checkpoint during the Independence Day holiday weekend.

A sobriety checkpoint is a traffic safety checkpoint where Pennsylvania State Troopers systematically stop vehicles at selected locations to briefly observe drivers for signs of alcohol or drug impairment, police said.

The goal of a sobriety checkpoint is to reduce the number of alcohol and drug related fatal and serious crashes, and to reduce the number of DUI drivers on Pennsylvania's highways, police said.

Summer is the season of Lions

Summer is the season of Lions.

Let me explain.

My father was a dedicated member of the Lower Lehigh Lions and summer, in my memory at least, was the season when the Lions' calendar got in full swing. Bookended by flea market and garage sales in May and September, the summer calendar included my dad's shifts at breakfasts at Macungie Memorial Park and stints at Wheels of Time and Das Awkscht Fescht.

Our home phone number was among those listed to "make reservations or for more information" for various events.
