Jane Addams called Kreidersvill her home

In researching this series with Mr. Harold Smith, we discovered a prominent and world reknowned social reformer in her youth attended Sunday School at Zion Stone Church in Kreidersville. Many of my readers may not recognize her name, Jane Addams. Her contributions to society were one of my lessons when this writer taught United States history at Northampton High School.

Election Day is Tuesday

With the general election just days away, Tuesday, Nov.6, it has been awfully quiet in the borough when it comes to the noise and news candidates bring to the table.

It was a fever pitch atmosphere in the largely Democratic based borough when Barrack Oboma made his run for the presidency four years ago. This Presidential election there are fewer Obama signs in the yards in town. Mitt Romney signs seem to be keeping pace with the opposition.
