Q. I went to delete a file and it just deleted without asking for confirmation. I prefer having a "safety net," requiring me to confirm any deletions. Do you know why it would do this?

A. It sounds like your Recycle Bin settings may have changed. Right-click your Recycle Bin and select Properties. Select the Global tab, which will encompass all hard drives. In Windows 7, select the General Tab. Click to place a check mark in the box next to Display Delete Confirmation dialogue, followed by Apply OK.

Roads in Coplay in need of repairs

Thursday, April 10, 2014 by by AL RECKER Special to The Press in Columns

Cherry and Ruch streets in Coplay may be among the worst in the borough.

On South Ruch Street, the macadam has lifted up in many areas. Both streets have been in poor condition for some time now. This year's winter storms have only deteriorated the quality of the roads further.

Major upgrades to Cherry and Ruch streets may take place in the near future. Funds have been budgeted in 2014 for repairs to both streets. The work will entail not only resurfacing, but reconstruction as well.
