Q: What grade are you in?

A: I am a senior this year at Emmaus High School.

Q: What is your favorite subject? Why?

A: My favorite subject would definitely be English. Analyzing texts and determining why the writer used certain words and the meaning behind them is just so interesting. I’ve typically loved science and math, but this year we focus on pure analysis of works which is just so different than previous classes.

The future of Ore Alley decided for now

Thursday, February 18, 2016 by LORETTA FENSTERMACHER in Local News

Alburtis Borough Council met Feb. 8 with more than 10 residents attending, mostly to hear about an inquiry from Dave Kutzor of Keystone Consulting Inc. about the possibility of vacating Ore Alley beginning at Ash Alley to West Front Street.

JMR Enterprises LLC, of Emmaus, inquired if it is worth spending the time and money involved to submit a plan. Kutzor reviewed a large sketch plan of the proposal and gave council the results of traffic studies captured by closed circuit cameras during the day on a Friday.

Results showed 10 cars in a 12-hour period drove on Ore Alley.
