Street sweeping scheduled for May

Thursday, May 1, 2014 by by AL RECKER Special to The Press in Columns

Street sweeping, which was to take place in April and was called off because winter decided to hang around a bit longer, is now set for May 15 and 16. Next week's column will list the day your street will be swept, curb to curb.

The streets will be posted with no-parking signs. Failure to move your vehicle on the posted day will get you a parking ticket, and your vehicle can be towed.

Residents are asked to sweep any gravel onto the street from their sidewalk. Unlike neighboring communities, Coplay does not have its own street sweeper, it contracts for such services.

Mickley family comes to America in 1733

Thursday, May 1, 2014 by ED PANY Curator, Atlas Cement CompanyMemorial Museum in Columns

Recently, I had a pleasant visit at the Northampton municipal building with Mr. Karl Mickley. A loyal reader of my columns in the Northampton Press, Karl brought along a packet of his families history. In reading my column on the Thomas Iron Works in Hokendauqua, he related how the Mickley family was involved with the historic iron company.

Even more enlightening were the roots of his family lineage. As a former United States history teacher, the name Jacob Mickley of Revolutionary War fame came to mind. Karl shared the following family history for our readers.

Essroc, Nazareth

Mr. George Cowitch graduated from Northampton Area High School in 1976 where he was a member of the track team. Upon graduation, he was employed at Lehigh Valley Dairy in the ice cream department and later, at Durkee Foods, making their tasty mustard. Unfortunately, both companies closed their local operations.

In 1990 he started his cement career at Coplay Cement, which constructed an ultra-modern plant in Nazareth, now Essroc.
