American Flag Missing from Irving Park
"Who took the flag off the flagpole at Irving Pole ... I trust no city employee took it down on orders of their superiors ... This is America. The flag ought to be flied on a municipal flag pole, especially on the weekend we celebrabrate our independence... I trust the flag wasn't removed by a neighbor offended that the American flag was flying."
"The neighborhood association provided the flag, and not the city .... It is actually a flag donated to us by a neighbor .. A flag that was on the casket of her deceased U.S. Military veteran husband."
(Since he was in a casket, I sure hope her husband was deceased.)
Personally, I suspect those Lehigh Valley Woodchuckers, a local gang that gets all hopped up on scrapple and then tosses boomerangs all over Irving Park.
Irving Street Swimming Pool Closed on July 4 Weekend
"And why was the Irving street Swimming Pool closed for The July 4 weekend? ... Is there a problem with the pool? ... Or is it another sign of a bankrupt city trying to save money? .... We won't accept any close down like occurred many years at Roosevelt Park ...That time ... employees at Mack Pool got out of line ... And were let go ... But that pool did not close ... Roosevelt did --- The employees from there were transferred to Mack.
"Remember there are no other swimming pools in East Allentown, and Jordan is on 6th Street, not even in Dieruff High School attendance area."
Dennis tells me the pool opened late yesterday. He also reports being hassled last week at the U.S. border because he was a lone individual traveling with an east coast license plate. Wait 'till he tries to fly somewhere.
