    From the Item Editor: Being a part of the show

    Recently, I had the opportunity to be not only part of a jury for the first time, but to also be the client of a law firm. On the evening of Saturday, March 21, I was able to sit in Judge Judy Koch’s court room at Haag’s Hotel in Shartlesville and watch Melissa Cheatham of The Law Firm of Dewy, Cheatham, & Howe go head to head with Sydney Schyster of Spring, Schyster, &Shark Legal Counseling.

    Letter: Thank you, for your service

    Hi Jeff, I don’t usually read through the Tri County Record but I am glad I saw your article this week. Very interesting. Vietnam? I was 4 F in 1961 and couldn’t go in the army or Navy (my preference) so by 1965 I was raising a family and only reading about the horrors of Vietnam.
