DUI checkpoint held on Broadway

Several dozen law enforcement officers from communities throughout Lehigh County gathered at a Lehigh County DUI Task Force command trailer late on the evening of Aug. 4 along Broadway, for a combination citizen education and drunk driving enforcement detail that coincides every year with the first night of Musikfest activities in Bethlehem.

The message was simple. Enjoy the festival. Have fun. But don’t get behind the wheel if you are impaired.

Plan for house tabled; more information sought

A plan for a house proposed to be built along Chestnut Hill Road in a westernmost area of Salisbury Township near Emmaus has been tabled by the township zoning hearing board.

The zoners’ 5-0 vote moved the proposal to the next zoning board hearing, 7 p.m. Sept. 5 in the township municipal building, 2900 S. Pike Ave.

“I would like to suggest you continue it until next month,” zoning board member Ronald Evans said.

Evans moved to table the plan, seconded by zoning hearing board member Edward Hare.
