Provisions of the elections code are strictly followed in every Pennsylvania election. Unfortunately for Northampton County elections officials, another law raised its ugly head during the Nov. 5 municipal election. Murphy’s Law — the epigram that anything that can go wrong will go wrong — was in full force during the county’s roll-out of a brand-new voting system called the Express Vote XL.
With five council seats up for election the following night, the Nov. 4 Catasauqua Borough Council meeting was brief with intermingled friendly ribbing and banter.
Mayor Barbara Schlegel, with countenance from borough council President Vincent Smith, kicked off the meeting with a flurry of accolades.
Schlegel presented an award recognizing Cub Pack 94 for its assistance with the summer concerts, held outdoors Friday nights. The Scouts raised nearly $1,000 during the season.
American Legion Post 215, 330 Second St., Catasauqua, held its annual Veterans Day dinner Nov. 9. The dinner is put on by the Post to honor veterans and is open to the public.
The three days in November that are dear to every veteran all line up in a row. Nov. 9 is the fall of the Berlin Wall; Nov. 10, the birthday of the Marine Corps; and Nov. 11, Veterans Day.
Halloween is a different experience on a BMX bike.
The party started just before lunch Oct. 19 in Catty Woods. Perfect weather added to the fun of the Halloween jam.
From the starting ramp across the course, bikes were jumping off the sand hills. There were practice runs in the morning followed by contests.
The preliminaries are open to all BMX riders, but the final races are awe-inspiring displays of athletic skills.
The contests went well into the night with trophies for highest jump and fastest time.
