The tax collector work is all done on the computer.

I am a long time resident of the Borough and will be able to put all my attention to the tax collector position since I will be retiring from Borough employment at the end of 2017 if appointed.

Editor’s Note: Audrey S. Penn, 78, of Bethlehem, was found Sept. 17 in Lower Macungie, after being reported missing Aug. 23 from Woodland Terrace at the Oaks in Salisbury Township.
After multiple searches by numerous volunteers and law enforcement agencies, it was a sad ending for many, especially her family, who had hoped to find Penn alive.
Penn’s children, Karl Kent and LaFond McRae, Karl’s wife Tracey and Penn’s grandchildren Taylor Kent and Armond McRae sat with The Press Sept. 23 to talk about their loved one.
The family of Audrey Penn has many unanswered questions regarding the death of their relative after she was reported missing from Woodland Terrace at the Oaks, a senior living and memory care facility in Salisbury Township.
According to the Woodland Terrace at the Oaks website, the “secured memory care residence provides an atmosphere that is relaxing, comfortable and safe.”
Which is exactly what Penn’s children were looking for when searching for a facility for their mother.
Members of the Lehigh Anomalous Phenomenon Investigation Society once again visited the Buckeye Tavern in April to check in on the “spiritual residents.”
The landmark opened as an inn and hotel in 1735 and operated through the late 1800s as the East Macungie Hotel and later as The Load of Mischief.
LAPIS visited the Buckeye Tavern in 2009 armed with equipment including electronic voice phenomenon recorders which use radio frequency. Spirits use this to form words and answer questions.
