The Morning Call

Mounting up for Musikfest

My husband had something similar happen to him last year, I'm assuming you are talking about the corner at Rippers. He fought the charge and won. They are definitely looking to make an example and they just picked a person at random to do exactly that. We were actually walking home and the officer followed us, provoking my husband. My husband said, to me, "this is fing BS" and the cops through him in cuffs and put him in the wagon. He was released back to me in 10 minutes by another officer who recognized that it really was BS. My recommendation is to make sure you are off that corner by 10:45 pm or you might be next. Not saying I agree with it, but it's not worth the hassle.  (Aug 7, 2009 | post #14)

I want to try the lump crab on a stick...sounds good! I highly recommend the thai chicken wrap up on Main St., don't remember the name of the stand, but it was near the old Morning Call building...awesome ! I think they are new, it was new to me anyway!  (Aug 5, 2009 | post #6)

I liked Bruce Ward's idea to raze the save the historic gantry crane run and incorporate it into the new structure or courtyard. Hopefully that works out.  (Jul 24, 2009 | post #5)

a $1000 an inch??? It's amazing that a company that could sell something for $1000 an inch is out of business.  (Jul 24, 2009 | post #4)

ok, so Allentown has no way to finance this, building it in Bethlehem would boost casino traffic, therefore boosting tax revenue from gambling...but Allentown is the preferred location? yeah, ok, that makes sense.  (Jul 23, 2009 | post #10)

Bethlehem unveils ordinance to regulate mobile vendors

They should have an initial offering of licenses at a set price, first come first serve and then, similar to the PA liquor licenses, they should allow vendors to sell them at fair market value. The idea of the city auctioning them to the highest bidder just reeks of "pay to play"  (Jul 22, 2009 | post #116)

nice, so basically established businesses can just put in the high bid and lock out the new guy? What is this Chicago, circa 1920?  (Jul 21, 2009 | post #29)

Five Points in Bethlehem an example of poor urban planning

I never understood how removing the left turn only lane for McD's is supposed to be a panacea for all of 5 points problems. There is another left turn lane not 50 feet up the hill to turn onto West 4th. If you are coming from the south you can't make the left onto West 3rd (which turns into delaware ave in fountain hill) so you have to make that left on 4th.  (Jul 17, 2009 | post #46)

I could almost see if someone said it was a Clapton song, but seriously, to say it was a GNR original? Are they serious???  (Jul 16, 2009 | post #22)

what the heck does that headline mean? That the stadium is almost dead or that the performers are? It doesn't fit the article...just because Dylan wrote the song doesn't mean it automatically works for the article.  (Jul 16, 2009 | post #1)

Nope. that would be too far out of the way for me but would work for others.  (Jul 8, 2009 | post #40)

Almost Heaven owner hit with $152,900 fine

The Morning Call

Almost Heaven owner hit with $152,900 fine

It's time to put an end to this dog and pony show already. If he isn't going to see any real jail time he'll just pick up and set up shop in another state. Sure fines may set him back financially, but what I would like to see is an investigation into his taxes. I don't have any knowledge of his situation, but seems to me that if he is lying to customers about the health and type of dogs he is selling them, working deals with authorities to get notification of when the inspectors are coming, it doesn't seem like a stretch that he may also be lying to uncle sam on his taxes. It's sad, but he is never going to get the punishment he deserves on dog law and animal abuse offenses. It is time to bring in the big guns...the IRS. If he comes up clean, then oh well my hunch was wrong...but I think it is worth the look.  (Jul 8, 2009 | post #2)
