Sea salt sounds healthier doesn't it? It evokes images of crashing surf, tanned bodies, and marlin jumping out of the water.

Wheelbarrows, spreaders and garden carts should be cleaned with a hose...

Lynn Township Supervisor Justin Smith continued a September discussion about how the fire companies should respond to a burn ban.

"Our procedures for a controlled burn are to go out and to call one of you [the supervisors]," Gary Kuntz, assistant chief of the Community Fire Company, New Tripoli, said on Oct. 10. "It's not up to the fire department to enforce it. If it appears dangerous, we'll put it out."

Township Manager Kevin Deppe said when they are called out and a...

The new hours from 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. (closed for lunch 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m.) Monday...
