Why Has Poverty Rate Decreased in Wind Gap?

The experts at the Lehigh Valley Planning Commission have an explanation for the increased poverty rate in Upper Milford, but have no clue why it has decreased by over 5% over the past ten years in Wind Gap. "That has us scratching our heads," says LVPC's Eric McAfee.

Is it because Detzi's Tavern has become more popular now that Scott Parsons is on Northampton County Council? Is it because Blue Mountain Consumer Discount is now finally reporting its income? Caesar's Diner? Fracking?

What's your explanation? The experts want to know.

I think it is because Parsons, Brown and company spend on average more a week at the Cafe than most people make in the area in a month.

How's that for economic stimulus?

Detzi's is not a cafe. It is a tavern. So far as i know, Brown does not visit it frequently, but his very personable wife likes to drop in from time to time for take out. It's a great sports bar with very good food. The baloney sandwiches are named after me.
