Regular or Premium

I would like to apologize for some staff problems at molovinsky on allentown. Yesterday, our aging photographer bulked at the demolition dust downtown, and only snapped a few pictures. Last night, one of our senior reporters misplaced his notes. Since this blog is published at 4:30 am, it's not possible to check sources before press time. This incomplete report has to do with the quality of water. Allentown water currently is comprised from both spring and creek sources. When demand requires that the supply be supplemented by more creek water, more chemicals, specifically chlorine, is necessary. A private water company will be allowed to increase selling water to the bottling companies in Macungie. They in turn will demand the premium spring water; Allentonians will get the regular grade, from the Little Lehigh; Except during heavy rains, when because of sewer runoff, the Lehigh River will be used. Bon Appetit.

Those who prefer to keep getting the premium grade through their Allentown faucets might want to attend the Citizen's Water Meeting tomorrow evening, October 25, on the second floor of the Allentown Brew Works. The meeting starts at 7:00 pm.

Thought I was only one up @ 4:30 a.m. Saw today's front page Call story on the demolition of First National. The dust must be a nightmare for those seniors, often with respiratory ailments. No fault of the contractor.Dust is everywhere when anyone does a construction project.

Also lights are out on Hamilton St between the 7th and 6th. When the show at Allentown Symphony let out this past Sunday evening all the inmates of the state correctional facility were on the street. Not the type of environment conducive to a burgeoning cultural center.

My favorite part of these meetings is watching the guys who are there to report back to the mayor figit and squirm while they take notes.
Honest to goodness it's a hoot to watch!

Shazamm --- Parkway Drive is two ways again. Just like that.
Now that guy in the Stone and Log Cabin has two mail boxes. I guess he's ready for anything.
( What does that poor guy do for all those weeks of Lights in the Parkwat?)
