The head of the Old Allentown Preservation Association, Jim Villaume, needs our help. On nights that the Iron Pigs have fireworks, he is forced to rent an out of town hotel room because of the noise. Apparently, gunfire doesn't bother him. The Administration, with City Council urging, has prevailed on the team to cut back the number of displays, even though fireworks are a time honored minor league tradition. Send donations to cover Mr. Villaume's hotel expenses to the Association office. You know that Allentown Fair is really a noise burden on the surrounding neighborhood.........
