    My View: I completed the Fools Run 5k!

    I was a runner in my youth, participating in track and cross country. Knee injuries put my running career to a halt in college but I still fondly remember that feeling of flying while out running. So when Don Sechler of the Kutztown Optimist Club asked if I’d be running in the Kutztown Fools Run this year, I couldn’t decline. This was the end of February and I hadn’t been training so I was a little nervous but eager to run again.

    The Historian: A Curious Old Deed

    A curious old deed has come to light. The well preserved parchment says that in 1789, the Rev. Johannes Christophe Kunze, D. D. (John Christopher Kunze) “of the City of New York” bought of Peter Richards, shopkeeper, and his wife Magdalena, a parcel containing 58 acres in New Hanover Township. By reckoning the meets and bounds described in the deed, we can position it somewhere near the Swamp Pike between Leidy Road and Romig Road.
