    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.

    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. Now I have missionary friends serving in Cambodia. Now I know you, who went in my place.

    Op-Ed: We are what we choose to be

    Humanitarian organizations and charitable agencies which use television commercials to ask for donations often show filthy, third-world children sitting in a roofless, dirt-floor school seeking the barest of educations with rapt attention. In their destitution – or perhaps because of it - they somehow understand that the only means of escape from their horrid lives lies in that room, with those pencil stubs, ragged bits of paper and cracked pieces of slate. Most significantly, their...
