Tatamy Bridge

Well, our bridge appears to be showing it's age once again. It was closed for several hours this afternoon due to a failing expansion joint.

According to the Department of Transportation, the bridge is scheduled to be replaced and is currently in the "Preliminary Engineering Phase" (whatever that means). PennDOT lists Stanley J. Poplawski as their project contact person. They also were kind enough to provide Mr. Poplawski's email address, which I have provided for you here. I think we should all drop him a note and let him know that this bridge needs to be replaced NOW before someone gets injured (or worse . . .).

Downtown Easton Perkins Gets New Life

Do you miss the downtown Easton Perkins? If so, the owner of the highly successful "Billy's Downtown Diner" in Bethlehem has signed an agreement to purchase and renovate the building.

I think I'm going to pay a visit to their Bethlehem location this Saturday with the kids for breakfast and will come back with a full revue. It looks very promising. Stay tuned.

Better Watch Your Speed . . .

It looks like the Pennsylvania State Police are out in full force along Route 33. According to an Express Times article, troopers, using fixed wing aircraft and other methods issued 12 tickets in one hour yesterday.

Speaking of speeding, it looks like Tatamy's own Police Department has gained "honorable mention" recently (congratulations George on a job "well done").

Bottom line -- "slow down"!

Have a great day!
